There are risks in everything we do. Getting up every day and going to work is risky. Of course, some activities carry more risk while others are certainly low risk. But anything can happen anytime, anywhere. So why do people get involved in network marketing and think there is no risk?
One of the reasons has to be the low cost of entry into many MLM businesses. The amount of money required to join many businesses is very affordable for most people. In fact, many companies don’t even charge a registration fee. You just need to make a regular purchase every month.
But people don’t realize that if you want to build a successful network marketing business, you will definitely have to spend more than the cost of a monthly autoship. It will require some kind of financial investment on your part and chances are you will fail. Here is the risk!
Like any other type of business, you may not be successful. But your losses will be much less than if you bought a franchise. Just to compare the difference, look for the cost of some of the major franchises.
As you will discover, some can be very expensive. Even with such a broad separation of risk between MLM and franchising, many people fail to understand that there is risk in the network marketing industry. And although the risk is much lower, many people think the risk is too great.
If you are one of those people, you should probably rethink your involvement in the MLM business. Why? Because if you are planning to start a business, it will cost you money. And if you’re worried about losing money when things aren’t going as planned, don’t take a chance.
Even with such a small risk, a lot of people think that because it is network marketing, there will be no risk. They don’t realize the risk until they lose money. And they don’t give up the business for long. They will stop before they lose any more money.
I am amazed at how people can think of Network Marketing as risk free. This is probably one of the reasons the industry has such a high failure rate. They think they have nothing to lose. And although the amount is small, it is still a risk.
And some people can’t take any chances. Stay away from any type of business if that’s you. This will only prevent you from being successful. The risk is not great in this industry, but there is the risk of failure.
