Starting out in business is not as easy as some people might think. It’s not impossible but it does require some effort. Working on systems that are pre-built like multi-level marketing can save you a lot of money and still get you the experience of owning your own business.

Those systems are not perfect you have many flaws just like any other companies. But if you know how to take advantage of them you’ll be able to get more benefits than downsides. When I was discharged from the Army before I open my first business, I used to work with a multi-level company. I won’t go into names here because I’m not trying to recruit anyone. The idea is that the person who recruited you has to teach you how to grow your business.

That’s the just of multi-level marketing, you recruit people to show them how to sell and do it all over again. The whole system is built on volume, the more your team sells the more you progress. It’s based on levelling, think of a video game like World of Warcraft.

The company know that you made a sale when you bought more inventory. Every item has its point value like XP. And to reach the next level you have to reach a set amount of XP. The cool thing is that you don’t have to get there alone, everyone you recruited collects XP for you as well as for themselves.

As good as the system is people are always going to find flaws, but the system keeps correcting them. In the beginning, the person who would recruit you would get you to take a loan to buy a large amount of inventory so he could level up. That’s the main reason MLM companies got such a bad name. But when you think about it, if you work it right you don’t put yourself in any risk. Just learn to selectively ignore people who are just looking out for themselves.

I learned a lot during my time in MLM and I really think you can too. What MLM should you join? That’s up to you. 

So, what can you learn as an MLM agent?

How to sell, how to advertise and how to get back on the horse after a setback. You’re going to make mistakes in business, and it’s way better to make $500 mistakes than $100,000 ones. After, my time in the MLM game I started a business that made $10,000 a month and ran it out of my own home. And I’m sure I would have never done it if wouldn’t have joined the MLM company I was in.

Sure there are some people who make millions in the MLM game. But focus on what you can get right here right now. It’s like a Bootcamp for business.
