Get Rich Schemes are great!

So says, the Mighty Bargain Hunter.
This provocative headline might have irritated many right minded people. But that’s the purpose of provocative headlines, anyway – to attract more people to read the article.
The MBH goes on to say,
“MLM businesses are just that: businesses. They don’t pay off without a lot of work. They don’t pay off without a good plan and a good follow-through. They don’t pay off if you can’t tell the difference between a legitimate one and a pyramid scheme. “
Take your time and read and take note of the key messages in this paragraph.
Many might just pooh pooh off a MLM as a scam, a slimy get rich scheme that benefits others at our expense. It need not be so. It is just a business opportunity that is presented to us. We have to be careful enough to study the case properly so that we don’t get sucked into a pyramid scheme.
And I am sure you are aware that it’s not just MLM preachers who are scamming people. People are getting scammed daily. Just today the NST Online reported a businessman losing USD100,000 to African conmen. And this is despite all that has been written about these kind of scams.
So you have two options,
– play it very safe and walk away from every MLMer who ever approaches you, or
– use your judgment, look at the opportunity, study the product and the company, study the plan, and then make your decision. And with hard work and commitment, make a respectable income.
We shall look at this Option 2 over the next several posts.
I have nothing against those who play it safe. Good for them. These are probably the people who are conservative in their thinking, people who are convinced that they have no MLM skills, people who are probably more of the “give me a salary, that’s enough for me” kind of mentality.
It may be good to remind ourselves at this stage that many of the outstanding successes that are used as examples by almost every business school were treated as non – starters by a number of “experts” first.
a) The growth of desktop computers in the home
“There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home.” as said by Kenneth H. Olson, President of DEC, Convention of the World Future Society, 1977
b) Harry Potter
The first agent to whom J.K. Rowling sent Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone rejected her in little more than a day. Her second agent, Christopher Little, was turned down by 12 publishers before Bloomsbury said yes a year later.
c) The Beatles
In January 1962, The Beatles were turned down by Decca Records because they were considered too similar to the Shadows. They signed with Parlophone and became the world’s most famous band.
To those people out there who want to increase their income, and find obstacles blocking them, I suggest that they consider MLM. It’s one way to get the full benefits of having our own business, whilst eliminating many of the problems. Hard work and commitment is still a must, there is no way to get around that. And do your homework well first.
In the meantime, to those of you who are interested, I do have one opportunity that may make a lot of business sense. It does to me. It’s a business opportunity for all Malaysians. It’s a way to earn passive income for Malaysians or a way to earn part time income for Malaysians. Read about some of the characteristics of the product here.
