Hello Everyone, Like some of you I have tried several different Multi Level Marketing ventures but I am yet to make any headway. In fact, I started off in the mid 1990s with Amway, made nothing then gave up on the whole thing. In the early 2000s, I got bold again and decided to give it a try after a friend dragged me across Los Angeles to a fancy hotel in Beverly Hills for another pumped up rally. Now, once again I signed up for it, worked it a while and made very little money and then gave up again. Then a couple of years ago (later part of 2008 to be precise), I got introduced into Monavie and some Alkaline water company. Again, this time I was told that I did not do it right previously or something to that effect and that I had to commit my body and soul to it for me to be successful. In fact, I had this coach/mentor who even took me to a mind cleansing workshop so that I could be free of what he called ???‚¬?“ bad luck energy???‚¬?? Well, needless to say, I guess the whole cleansing session did not work that well as I barely made much money from both MLM ventures. Finally, I ran into an old friend of mind that has made a fortune from MLM stuff and was telling him all my tales of woes in the MLM business and after he had fun laughing at my experience, he said something that made me think that he might be right.. What he said got me once again excited at the money making opportunity from MLM businesses. However, this time around I am still kind of skeptical and want to get others input first. Essentially, what he said was that ???‚¬?“Timing is everything in Multi-Level Marketing???‚¬?? He said that the reason that I was having such a hard time gaining any traction was because I was joining all this MLMs after the boat had already sailed. That is, there where just too many people ahead of me in the chain so I had to work 100 times harder to ever make any headway. I was simply feeding those ahead of me in my upline. The secret was to join an MLM that was just about to start off or buy into an upline position in one that was already matured. Now, like I said previously, I have had a difficult time before. However, I don???‚¬?„?t want to give up yet as I have seen some folks like my friend become millionaires from MLM. But I would like to get other peoples perspective on this. Please let me know what you think.
