We’ve all heard the stories of Network marketing. Many of us have been trained to cringe at those words.

Usually, the stories most people hear about, are of the people that did not succeed. Not usually of the people you know, that are succeeding at network marketing. And usually, when someone doesn’t succeed, it’s because they never actually stepped up to the plate. And if you don’t step up to the plate, how likely is it, that you’re going to get a base hit, much less, a home run? Many of us then get conditioned to not considering, because, “Hey, who wants to fail?” Keep living in your comfy box with debt up your, you know what.

In my previous life as a traditional business owner, I never considered network marketing. Then the economy hit me and hit me hard. I had to auction off equipment and walk away from property. I kept my house and businesses, but I knew I had to find another way. Having to list my house and all my personal possessions as collateral to banks and suppliers, didn’t sit well with me anymore. I knew what could happen. I was a prisoner of my business and the system!

I was depressed for a few years. Not sure what to do.. I was wondering how I ever could retire.. Business was getting by, but I could never get ahead. Too much overhead. Equipment, insurance, taxes, unions, etc…I definitely wasn’t having fun 🙁

One day, my friend(best friend since I was 7!) and fellow Entrepreneur, Mark Bezik, asked me if I’d take a look at this green energy thing. Mark is one of those guys, that EVERYTHING he touches turns to gold..Mark carried instant credibility with me and green energy is kind of sexy, and its recession proof, so I said, sure.

OMG! He blew my mind! I didn’t know something like this existed. I was able to work with a few of my good friends and build a stream of passive, residual income. And all I do is help people save money on a product that EVERYONE uses and MOST would choose to go green, especially when they save money.  It’s been lots of hard work, but 4 years later I think I’ve proven most of the skeptics wrong. As I recently finished 39 out of 25,000 associates in a 4 month long promotion, to earn a trip to Riviera Maya!

The recession changed my perspective on business. I wish I had found network marketing much sooner. But, the reason I take it so seriously now, is because I’ve been through what I’ve been through and I won’t ever go through that again. I’m working towards being debt free! By getting 2 paychecks every Friday! This has been a great entry point into other forms of Entrepreneurship.

And, now I’ve even found a system, that enables me to grow my business, while I sleep. Simply by leveraging the internet. My good friend, Jeff Lerner, created this amazing system and company called Lifestyle Design International.

Some people even choose, to only work their home business, via the internet, in their pajamas!!

Jeff even offers a 30 day free trail on his video series, 16 Steps to 6 Figures. And best of all, you get to work with me!

What will you do, if the economy falls apart? You don’t think the USA printing $ and devaluing our dollar will have an impact? It will! And we haven’t seen the impact YET. In our lifetimes, there will be a day where EVERYONE owns a home business. You may lose your job, but you won’t lose your debt! Many of the experts are predicting this. Warren Buffett is even in network marketing! So be sure to choose a home business that provides maximum leverage.

I’m talking about, everyone, having protection against a down turn in the economy. I’m talking about you, as an employee, having insurance on your job. I’m talking about, traditional business owner’s leveraging their existing business and networks, to create a safety net for their traditional business, and potentially giving them an exit strategy. I’m talking about TRUE FREEDOM. Financial, personal, and mental freedom.

And, MOST of us, are financial slaves and don’t even realize it. Orris Woodward does a great job of explaining why it’s important to get debt free.

Take ACTION! Do something about it. If you’d like to learn more about some more specific steps I took, to create my safety net, which in turn allowed me to have an exit strategy, contact me. I’m happy to help you.

  1. Stepping up to the plate and taking a good look inside yourself is when you truly break free. Becoming debt free is very important! Great post!

  2. This is absolute truth. If you don’t have a back up plan-aka a business!- you’re going to be out of luck when things go downhill. And most importantly, going ALL IN for your business. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Network marketing gets a bad rap for some reason. Haven’t understood that yet. Best business structure out there.

  4. Great post! I, myself, had a negative attitude about network marketing but that changed. I think it’s the best thing out there! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  5. Love it, great post Phil.. love Network Marketing, very low overheads and very high potential profits, it’s not that NM doesn’t work, it’s the whiners and the whiners who don’t make it work.. you can give someone a great system and they would still find a way to fail at it..
