Robert Kiyosaki’s Eight Hidden Values of a Network Marketing Business
Posted March 23, 2009on:
Other than making money!
Robert Kiyosaki is well known as the force behind the Rich Dad, Poor Dad series of financial education books. His first book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad made a huge impression on me and I credit that book as the single most powerful force behind my financial transformation.
An audio CD was distributed free with one of his books. I can’t remember exactly which book it was. The CD titled “The Eight Hidden Values of a Network Marketing Business, other than Making Money”, makes for real interesting listening.
It’s of about 45 minutes running time, and I list below the more powerful messages I got from listening to the CD.
a) The first and foremost hidden value is the obtaining of a life changing business education.
An education that will help us develop ourselves. To change the way we think. To help us make our transition from the “E” Quadrant to the “S” and eventually the “I” Quadrant.
Many of us have been brought up to think in the traditional way of “Study hard, get good grades, get a good job, save money and buy a house”. This system might have worked great for our fathers and grandfathers. But times have changed. No job now offers security. We can be retrenched at anytime. How do we protect ourselves and our families should our source of income be suddenly be cut off?
In Network Marketing, we are taught the basics of running a business. And this is usually at a tiny fraction of the cost of undergoing the equivalent education formally. Through this we get an avenue to build wealth for ourselves and our families.
b) Rich people look for and build Networks, others look for jobs.
This is a another powerful statement. He also made reference to Metcalfe’s Law which can be argued as the economic power of a network being the square of the number of points in the network. Hence if we have a downline of 10 people, our economic power is 100.
This statement makes a lot of sense. In almost every self development book or blog, there should be the mandatory “build your network” advice. The Network Marketing Business is exactly that. Our customers and downline become our network. The better and more dedicated we are in building our network, the stronger our economic power becomes.
c) Emotional Support from Like Minded Individuals
Unlike the traditional job, where office politics and the like create winners and losers, Network Marketing creates winners all around. The more you succeed will be the better it would be for me, so it is in my interest to do my best to promote you and your business. This formula is repeated throughout the business.
Through mixing with our leaders, our self development gets more pronounced. We better ourselves and begin to blossom in our business.
I got into Network Marketing before listening to this CD. My reasons were:-
a) This opportunity was based on a fantastic product. A product that I used and completely believed in. A product that was part of a RM4 billion a year industry.
b) The power of leveraging, where 1% of the work of a 100 people will eventually surpass 100% of the work of one person.
c) Network Marketing is in line with one of the unstoppable Mega Trends of the world.
d) Flexible hours and the success being dependent on my commitment and hard work.
e) No boss deciding on my schedules. I am the sole boss and driver of my business.
These were the 5 primary reasons. Since starting the business, I have gotten more and more convinced that I have done the right thing. With newer technologies like the Internet being available to be used to explosively grow my network, the only regret would be that I did not start this earlier.
In the meantime, to those of you who are interested, I do have an opportunity that may make a lot of business sense to you. It does to me. It’s an exciting business opportunity for Malaysians. It’s a great way to earn part time income, until it overtakes your full time income. Then you can build it into a passive income source.
