The Eight Hidden Values of a Network Marketing Business By Robert T. Kiyosaki Value #1: Join a network marketing company to attain the life-changing business education. o Are you looking to make big changes in your life? This industry supports those who are ready to make big changes. o Industrial age thinking: go to school, get good grades, get a good job, work hard, save money, buy a big house, get security; unfortunately, no matter how much we work in traditional business, most people live paycheck to paycheck. o Information age thinking: companies offer no real security; 401k’s are risky – take control of your own future – assume leadership, go against the grain, take risks, follow you own drummer, build businesses, build networks, build leveraged income. These are the words of rich people. o The richest people in the world build networks (e.g., GM; NBC). Everybody else is looking for work. o Don’t look at the product, but at the company’s leadership, educational programs, and their level of support. The company should teach you to become a leader, not just another salesperson. o Look to leaders first. How committed are they in developing you? o Allow yourself five years to make the change. o Lead the Field – by Earl Nightingale Value #2: Join a network marketing company to transform the way you think. o There are four types of employees: E: Employee / S: Self-employed B: Business owners / I: Investors o Income potential in “E/S” quadrants is limited. o In the “B” quadrant, there are unlimited opportunities. o Networks are unlimited, so the income in network marketing companies is unlimited. These companies can take you from the “E” and “S” quadrants to the “B” quadrant, the richest quadrant in the world. o Even if you don’t sell anything, hang out with the people who are in network marketing companies. They give you a different perspective on business. o If you want to change, you must change quadrants. o Once you grasp the concept in your heart, mind and soul, the change will be permanent, and you will never go back. Value #3: Join a network marketing company to increase your network of strong personal relationships. o The Art of Exceptional Living – Jim Rohn. o Find friends who want to go through the journey with you. o If you have friends who are holding you back, you should definitely join a network marketing company, because you need new friends. o The emotional support is crucial.
Value #4: Join a network marketing company to allow you to invest in the best investments in the world. o The rich invest in different investments (e.g., pre-IPO, franchises) o By 1933 US Securities Law, if you are not a millionaire, you CANNOT invest in the investments of the rich. You need a million dollars net worth and a cash flow of 200,000 K to get into these investments. o A network marketing business allows you the potential to invest in the best investments in the world. This is why the rich get richer. o The Laws of Inner Wealth – Sir John Templeton. o The best way to get rich is to be generous. All you want to do is serve as many people as you can. o Network marketing is a great concept. You only get rich by helping others get rich. It teaches you the meaning of being generous, and how to become wealthy by being generous. Value #5: Join a network marketing company to live your dreams. o Most people are conditioned to say, “I can’t afford that…”, or “I could never do that…” – in other words, you kill your own dreams. And if you don’t kill them, your friends probably will. o In network marketing, you meet people who want you to have your dreams. They completely inspire you. o Surround yourself with people who have personal investment in your own dreams. o Live your potential. Never give up on your dreams. o Money is not the most important thing in the world, but it does seem to affect everything else that is important. Money affects your health. Money affects your relationships. Money affects your personal growth. Money (or lack of) affects your ability to dream. o Question: Is your job and hard work leading you down the path to fulfilling your dreams? If not, you need to consider making a change, and join people who are going for the dream and not trying to tear your dreams down. o Making Money on the Web – Seth Godin. Value #6: Join a network marketing company to gain an understanding of the value of a network. o Metcalf’s Law: the power of a network is equal to the number of people in your network, squared. Quantum leaps, not linear. The economic power of a concept goes up by the square of the number of users (1:1 / 2:4 / 3:9 / 4:16 / 5:25 / 10:100) You cannot do this working for a wage, or working by the hour. You have no leverage. Robert Metcalf: started 3-COM, invented the Palm Pilot.
John D. Rockefeller (15 years); Bill Gates (10 years); Michael Dell (5 years) to become a billionaire. o Understand the difference in “find a job” vs. “network.” That is the power of the new economy, but most people think in the old economy. o If you are working harder, day by day, you are trapped in the old economy. If you want to change your life, start thinking like a business owner, a networker. Value #7: Join a network marketing company to discover a new reality. o Whatever you think is real is your reality. If you think investment is risky, you will attract all the ideas that support that it is risky. I think working hard, 9 to 5, looking for job security is risky. o The parallel is John Maxwell’s Law of Attraction o Courage is the key. Value #8: Join a network marketing company to become a leader. o You must become a leader. You must become an entrepreneur. o The 10 Qualities of a Charismatic Leader – Tony Alexandra o People are tired of looking for security when it doesn’t exist. o Keep your day job, and start a part-time business. o Counting on the stock market or government for your retirement is ridiculous. o Most importantly, you will be secure and free if you start in a network marketing company. o 3 cats are sitting on a fence. Two decide to jump off. How many cats are still sitting on the fence? Three. Just deciding means nothing – you have to do something. o The most important sales job you can have is on yourself – stay enthusiastic. o Network marketing companies support and educate you in such a way that allows you to gain personal and financial freedom.
