There are many ways of making a living, earning enough money to support yourself and/or your family, and having a little extra for fun and entertainment. The following are popular business models people investigate when they are ready to join the job market.

The first is the traditional 9 to 5 job.  You work as an employee for a business or corporation.  You are guaranteed payment for your services; through the years your efforts are rewarded by rank advancement and pay increases; and you’re basically guaranteed employment for as long as you are performing to the company’s standards.  Most people choose this option because they enjoy the security of knowing that every month they will receive a fixed amount of money they can depend on.  They know they can budget their income and pay their bills, and they also know that their future is ensured with a retirement plan.

The second is owning your own business.  This type of person does not like being told what to do and when to do it unless they see the value in it.  They don’t like feeling that there is a limit to the money they can generate. They like the idea of naming their own hours. Even if they work longer and harder than the 9-5 people, the entrepreneur feels he is doing this because he wants to, not because someone else is telling him he has to.  He is doing something that he feels passionate about and if he fails he takes full responsibility for it.  It wasn’t because his boss told him he wasn’t good enough, or because the company no longer needs his services, or for a myriad of reasons companies give for firing people.

There is a third business model that many people are considering today…Network Marketing.
In excess of 13 million people in the United States alone are distributors for network marketing companies. During the next decade, the Direct Selling Association projects that network marketers will recruit more than 200 million new distributors into the business worldwide. Asian markets are expanding rapidly, including India. In fact, even during recessions, the direct selling industry proves to be rather resilient.

Yet, as popular as this business model is, many people still don’t understand the concept of network marketing. Many misinformed people when introduced to this business will ask questions such, “Is this a scheme? Is this legit? Is this like a pyramid where all the people at the top make all the money?  Do I have to go door-to-door and sell?”
