As we have already learned, a real business is one that employs a system to leverage the work and resources of other people’s time and money…so that you can stop trading time for dollars. One example of a leveraged business is a franchise. When you buy a franchise, you are buying a system that uses other people’s labor to earn profits for you.
Another leveraged business model that is accessible to people just starting out in business is network marketing (also called multilevel marketing or direct marketing). I know, the first thing that probably came into your mind was “pyramid scheme.” But the new-style network marketing has gone mainstream. People like Robert Kiyosaki, Robert Allen, Donald Trump and other savvy financial advisors have legitimized this model of doing business.
The beauty of network marketing is that you don’t have to make a large investment. Generally, for as little as a few hundred dollars, you get access to products, services and an automated system to start building your own business. As you sell products and add new associates into your organization, you will start leveraging your business. In a few years, you will be able to “retire” and continue to make passive income from the efforts of others on your team.
That is why Robert Kiyosaki calls network marketing the “business of the future.” As he says:
A network marketing business is one of the asset classes. It is a business. If you work hard and build the business, that business will give you the excess cash to acquire the real estate and stocks that will give you true long term financial security…security you can pass on to your loved ones. You can’t do that with your job, no matter how secure it is.
Team Northrup has teamed up with USANA to offer you the opportunity to invest in a very special network marketing business…one that uses principles of conscious network marketing to truly help people improve their health and finances. With the residual income you will earn over the next five years, you could become an investor and be on your way to building financial independence for yourself and your family.
