Sometime you hear it called Network Marketing and other times you will hear it called Multi Level Marketing (MLM) but it is the same thing. They are both business models where individuals or independent contractors earn commission after buying into a company where they sell products that the company has created. It gives individuals the ability to work their own schedule and be their own boss. This means they can set their own hours and work towards their own success instead of relying on their boss or someone else to do that for them.
It does take a giant commitment and is not for everyone but, if done correctly, can prove to be a lucrative career.
If you are wanting to get involved in an MLM or Network Marketing type of career, make sure to do your due diligence when investigating companies to join. Remember, you are buying into the company in order to sell THEIR products. Make sure it is worth your time. The key to your success is picking the right network marketing company to join.
