He spends the first half of the book explaining why the old path to Industrial Age financial success -- "get a good education, find a good job, work hard for forty years, invest in stocks and real estate, etc." -- no longer works in the Information Age. The second half of the book explains what network marketing is, what it is not, and why it is the best option to create personal income security today.
Kiyosaki lends his substantial credibility to this much-misunderstood business to clear away the misconceptions that keep many prospects from joining. He demolishes objections one by one so that those who are determined to succeed in "The New Economy" will see that only network marketing offers all the benefits of a huge business, with none of the risk, expense, and complexity.
Network marketing is a revolutionary business format that relies more on communication, leadership, and team-building skills than it does sales skills. It doesn't require a college education or large investment to build a six-figure (or higher) income. There is no glass ceiling. There is no need to abandon a J.O.B. to start a network marketing enterprise.
This is the book to give your best prospects and team members The Business of the 21st Century.Read more ›
This is a quick read, well written, well balanced view of Network Marketing and how it fits into the economic environment of 2010 and beyond.
There is a strong thread of personal responsibility - or as I like to call it - personal "Response-Ability" throughout the book which will go a long way to dispel the get rich quick myth often associated with network marketing. The quote; "The economy is not the issue - the issue is you!" has been our Team's mantra for nearly 12 years now.
I especially enjoyed the last chapter where the author sees our industry as an instrument for increased world peace and prosperity, and for the revitalization of America - because participation is truly a level playing field and who you become in the process of building your own business is the ultimate reward.
Live with Intention,
This book explains what Network Marketing is and is not. It is not a GET RICH QUICK SCHEME, OR AN ILLEGAL PYRAMID. Network Marketing (AKA Multi Level Marketing) is a viable and very honest way to make a living. You get to create how much you earn, not based on somebody else's view of you, or what the job itself is worth.
In Network Marketing you can be as equal or as un-equal as you choose. It is up to you to create the life you want without having to blame anyone else for your failure or wins.
I plan to use this book a lot to educate people about the business I am in, and why they should join me.
I think the people who succeed with MLM are those who like the idea of building their own business, but still have an "employee" mindset. If you do what they tell you - if you, as they say, are "coachable" and are a team player, you may do very well; perhaps better than you can do by building your own company from scratch. But you need to seriously ask yourself if you are that kind of person.
Also, I disagree with Kiyosaki when he says MLM companies are great places to learn how to sell. For over a decade I sold wholesale to the likes of Wal-Mart and Target. MLM "sales" are very different. It is because - and this is the key -- MLM sales are not about the product (even though some of them have great product). MLM sales are about MLM - adding promoters to your downline (like a pyramid scheme, to be honest). That is the mantra that is drummed into you. That's why MLM selling kinda feels like being a religious missionary; and why some people call it cultlike.Read more ›
