I had this idea a while ago, and even started a website and a blog about it, then I stopped as I got busy with other life issues. Here is the idea: MLM as a life style means that when you need to buy anything, you first search for a source that utilizes MLM as a method of marketing. Say it's grocery shopping day. The traditional way is that you drive to the grocery store, pick your stuff, check out and drive back home. You do the same every week or so, but never get rewarded for your loyalty. The MLM way is that you search for a grocery source that involves multilevel marketing. When you bring in a new customer you get rewarded for their purchases as long as they are customers. If the MLM source doesn't exist, search for a source that at least rewards you for your loyalty. If you do the same for gas, mortage, communications, and all aspects of life you'll find that you have the MLM option in many of them. Then know how many people do you need to refer in each program to get your services for free and make that your goal. After you reach that goal of recruiting, train your referrals on doing it on their own. Then let it grow on its own. Your direct benefit is having many of your expenses eliminated, and your most precious asset (which is your time) is saved for something else (instead of going shopping you get your order shipped to you, and you do the recruiting and training thing once and forget it). The indirect benefit is that you have invested your time in building a foundation for multiple streams of residual income. Residual income is awsome. You don't need to keep working for it, and at the same time you pay the least taxes possible on your income. Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? Like a nice dream? Actually it is just a dream. A wish that I believe will come true someday (I am working on it).
