What is the difference between a successful business and a failure?
Throughout the history of making money we can see many businesses that have had great success and many businesses that have failed miserably. The difference between the successes and failures depends upon a number of factors, but in many cases we can see certain successful businesses that have created a “formula” that works again and again, allowing for expansion across entire countries and even the world.
Think about McDonald’s – this American business that started out decades ago selling hamburgers, fries and milkshakes has grown into one of the strongest businesses in the world. What is the McDonald’s Secret To Success? You got it – a system!
Each and every McDonald’s restaurant is a franchise – which means the owner has paid McDonald’s corporation for the rights to run that restaurant. They are given giant golden arches to hang above the door and a system – the same system that every McDonald’s restaurant must follow. The system is completely plug and play, and includes everything from how often to sweep the floor to how many seconds the fries should be cooked and how many pieces of tomato are on every burger.
This is why a completely inexperienced teenager, with a squeaky voice and a case of acne, can get a job at McDonald’s and fill your order for a Big Mac, fries, a baked apple pie and a soft drink with the expertise of a CEO. They follow the preplanned and ever-so-thoroughly spelled out instructions provided to them by the McDonald’s system.
Systems are impressive. Systems turn simple procedures and combinations of actions into profitable ventures. If you are considering starting your own business then a solid working system should be at the top of your list.
It’s been said that 90% of businesses fail within the first 5 years. What about the other 10%? They must have their system in place and working like clockwork. Businesses fold because they were either not proven to work in the first place, or they were not following a good system.
Having a system to follow is one of the key reasons that people choose network marketing as their business model. Network marketing is an industry that is based on having systems and plans to follow and duplicate. This makes doing business much easier and makes success a lot easier to achieve.
Many people decide to start a home business for lots of different reasons. Some keep their “day jobs” until the business really takes off, and work at the home business during their spare time. Some people don’t have a regular job and decide to take on a network marketing business full time. It might even begin as a hobby.
Regardless, network marketing has become the business of choice for many people because of this: there are established systems to follow – systems that work well no matter who is pushing the necessary buttons.
There has never before in history been a better time to start a business than right now, and there are no business options better for a person starting out than Network Marketing.
Find a system, work the system, and enjoy the benefits. That’s what Network Marketing is all about.
