I'm often amazed at the stories I've heard from actual people about how they've done so well in Network Marketing (or MLM's). Mainly because, I don't see how anyone could possibly without giving up their entire lifestyle, time, energy, $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, and sanity to do so. I've actually talked to people who have made a career of hopping from one MLM to the next and waiting for the one their in now to fall apart so that they can hop to the next one. I never fell for this in my earlier years, but living in this extremely expensive city (at the moment) and not being able to make ends meet as a health care worker, I looked for other options to increase my income. I kind of felt this one was alright, and decided I'd give it a try. Truthfully, it probably was a LOT better than most others out there mainly because it has an amazing leadership team, a great endorsement from someone who is respected worldwide, and also a great product. But, in the end, with my nutso life, I couldn't justify the time spent on it OR the money spent on ordering and using the product myself. So, as of today, I have resigned - FOREVER from Network Marketing. I'm just not cut out for it you know? I'm way too honest, and if someone doesn't absolutely need something, I can't tell them that they do. It just doesn't feel right you know? I have to focus my energy on other things, like self improvement overall, and in the funding department, I'm looking at taking on a second job. Perhaps something in data entry 2 or 3 evenings a week and Saturdays. So, if anyone knows of anything like that, let me know. I'm up for it. I've started networking (in the telling people - sense of the word ;-) to let people know that I'm looking for something like that. My background is a whole lot of health care, as well as a lot of computer knowledge (not in a programming way), and just about every retail and woodworking minion job that ever existed. (including a vast knowledge about pets as I worked at Petland), probably don't really want to ever go back to retail again to be honest with you, unless it was at a book store. So, if anyone knows of anything simple that I can do 2 or 3 eves a week and a Saturday or 2 a month, let me know. I'm interested.
