I’m sure you appreciate there are differences between a job and a business.
By starting business with Forever, it is similar to running franchise in principle (like McDonalds, Subway etc..) except it doesn't require expensive start up costs, minimal expenses (working from home - no shop etc..) and no staff.
You could work the business in a couple of ways -
Firstly, you could earn a few hundred extra pounds a month by retailing products. Ways of developing a customer base include sample boxes, having a table at events - charity fairs/ gyms etc.. product launches (house parties) to name but a few.
Secondly: Earning from £1000 per month - 6 figure incomes and beyond, building a "Passive" income ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passive_income
as a professional Networker, by building and coaching a network of independant business developers - who have the same opportunity you do.
You get a bonus on you Teams turnover - just like you would leading any reputable sales force, the important factor is your bonus come from Forever's profits - not your teams! YOU WILL ONLY BE SUCCESSFUL IF PEOPLE IN YOUR TEAM ARE SUCCESSFUL
Many people totally misunderstand the business model, ("fear") Network marketing or Multi Level Marketing is now taught as part of most Business Courses at Uni, and is used by Virgin interactive, Gillette to name but a few..
Often people will say -
Its a scam, you e********y off your friends!?!?! In reality you e********y based on your teams turnover, as do your team, any bonus is paid from the company's profits (not your teams), the figures are the same for everyone and are designed to incentivise you to coach others to build a succesful business.
Its a pyramid (sigh) - I've never actually been approached with a pyramid scheme, they are illegal and highly unethical, which involve high sign up costs, and no turnover of a product. - If you think of any J.O.B there is normally 1 x head honcho, with senior management below him, then middle management then the rest (what shape is that?)- in this environment people can work their whole careers without reaching the top income -
With a reputable networking company, if you put the work in - you earn the top incomes, there is room at the top for everyone - Which is why I believe it is the most ethical business model.
You have to sign up/ sell to your friends! - You don't "have" to do anything - it is ultimately your business, it is recommend that you offer the business and products to those close to you first... because the products HELP people , as does the business. Why wouldn't you want to offer the best products and a potentially life changing business to those you care for - its not for everyone and that’s ok - you just let them know what you're doing and let them decide for themselves..
The products are potentially life changing - helping in a range of conditions including Eczema, Psoriasis, Arthritis and IBS to name a FEW! (all covered with a 60 satisfaction/money back guarantee)
There’s no guaranteed income, I know someone who failed!??!?!?! - do you know anyone who failed at school? Who didn’t finish a run they started? Do you know anyone that gave up then blamed outside circumstances instead of looking at themselves?...Well the good news is the only way you "FAIL" at this business is by giving up, if you keep learning and improving - you WILL SUCCEED :)
The marketplace is saturated!?!?!?!! a valid fear - however not based on reality, the health and nutrition market place is estimated in the UK to be worth £19M a day - of which we have £36M a year, as you can see, we have not even scratched the surface... and I promise - Business is booming in this so called "recession"
The Challenges with the business? (there are 3)
1 - It is not a "get rich quick" scheme, it is a business, so will take time AND effort to develop, you will get results within months as opposed to years with more conventional business - but for those only accustomed to working for other people this can be confusing.
2 - Some people will say no to the opportunity - so you develop a thicker skin/ learn to deal with rejection :) and hey its ok, there are so many people out there, particularly in this economic climate looking for ways of building/ supplementing their income/pension,
backed by a multi national company with 30 years consistent growth, 20?rowth last year :) cash rich, debt free, over $2.5B world t/o
3- As with any new endeavour - there are new skills to be learnt, the training and support is second to none (Forever are holders of the Investors in People Award) The more you invest you "TIME" into learning about your business, the faster it will develop!!
So what’s the catch?.....Hard work I'm afraid dude - you get out what you put in!
If you are willing to put the work in - to do the things which others are not, to
