The network marketing industry is not made up of pyramid schemes.  People often believe that the person on top will always be on top and that no one can rise above that person or team.  This is simply not true.  Time and time again, new people are signing up for network marketing organizations and blowing past current leaders, and as I type this sentence, someone is getting blown past right now.

Corporate America is the real pyramid scheme

Nevertheless, people continue to perpetuate this myth.  If anyone took time to do some analysis, they discover that Corporate America America, as well as the United States government are set up like pyramids.  When you look at the organizational structure of most corporations, you find at the top a CEO/President and maybe some Sr Vice Presidents under them and some Vice Presidents under them and then some Sr. Directors under them and then Directors, Managers, etc.  And what you might notice is that the closer you get to the top the smaller the number and the closer you get to the bottom, you will find more people.  Hmmm!!!  Sounds like the shape of a pyramid to me.

The most ironic thing about this structure is that when you’re hired by a Corporation, you’re not hired as the President in most cases.  Quite frankly in most cases you’re hired at the bottom of the pyramid and you’re expected to work your way to the top.  But how possible is that when the people at the top are constantly fighting to maintain their positions of power and prestige?  How long do you think it would take you to get to the top of your corporation?  If you answered a long time, you’re probably right.

Unlike Corporate America, network marketing is the only opportunity that allows you to start at the top.  You can get started with most Direct Sales companies for less than $500.00.  Where else can you start up a business or franchise with such a small investment and then turn around and work your way to millionaire status?  Only in network marketing can you do such a thing and that is the beauty of this industry.  In network marketing the playing field is level.  The industry doesn’t care if you’re black, white, fat or tall or skinny.  All this industry cares about is your passion and desire for success.  When you embrace a network marketing opportunity with an open mind and a willingness to be coached, you will be transformed.
