There are risks in everything we do. Getting up each day and going to work has risks involved. Of course some activities have more risk while others are certainly low risk. But anything can happen at anytime anywhere. So why do people get involved in network marketing and think that there are no risks involved?
One of the reasons has to be the low cost of entry into many MLM companies. The amount of money required to join many companies is very affordable for most people. In fact many companies do not even charge a sign up fee. You just have to make a regular purchase each month.
But people do not realize that if you want to build a successful network marketing business you will certainly have to spend more than the cost of a monthly auto-ship. It will take some sort of financial investment on your part and there is the chance that you will fail. That is the risk!
Like any other type of business there is the possibility that you will not be successful. But your losses will be much less than if you were purchasing a franchise. Just to compare the difference look up the cost of some of the major franchises.
As you will discover, some can be very expensive. Even with such a wide separation of the risk between MLM and franchising, many people do not understand that there is some risk involved in the network marketing industry. And even though the risk is much smaller, many people think the risk is too great.
If you are one of those people then you probably should rethink your involvement in the MLM business. Why? Because if you plan on building a business then it is going to cost you some money. And if you are afraid of losing any money when things do not go the way you planned, then don’t take the risk.
Even Wit such a small risk, many people think that because it is network marketing there will be no risk. They only realize the risk once they have lost some money. And they are not long giving up on the business. They will quit before they lose anymore money.
It amazes me how people can think that network marketing does not have any risk involved. This is probably one of the reasons the industry have such a high failure rate. They think that they have nothing to lose. And although the amount is small, it is still a risk.
And some people cannot take any sort of risk. Stay away from any type of business if this is you. It will only prevent you from achieving success. The risk is not great in this industry but there is the risk that you could possibly fail.
