MLM is not a pyramid scheme
Know the facts before you judge


Most people think that Multi Level Marketing(MLM), Network Marketing(NM) or Automated Passive Income Creators(APIC's) are pyramid schemes.

When I explain the Be Motivated Today system to people they just frown and say, "Ain't that one of those pyramid scheme's". My question to them is, "Do you work for a big company?". About 90% of the time the answer is, yes. Well, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but then you are part of a pyramid scheme.

Let me explain.

In a big company you have structures. You have the CEO(Chief Executive Officer) or MD(Managing Director). It's the big boss that you seldom see, but only hear off. Below him you will find the Vice President, if the company is really big. 

Then usually you have divisional managers, managers and then right at the bottom is you. Yes, you. Right there at the bottom. "Oh come on", you say, I have a good job I get a good salary, I'm doing just fine. If you are doing just fine, why are you reading this page then? Let me tel you why. 

All our lives we have been taught to do good at school, get an education and find a job that we try to do for the rest of our lives. I know, that's how I was brought up. What you are actually doing is making someone else rich. 

You are making the  CEO of the company rich. He is leveraging of you. How does it work? Let's say you are contracted to a company to do some work. 

You are the best in your field and they charge the customer an amount by the hour. Let's say, $100. You then go to the customer and you work hard. You do your job and your manager is very happy that he has this great worker which is boosting the companies image... blah...blah...blah. We all know the song. 

What happens to the money you actually make? Now, let's have a look. From the $100 your company charges the customer, you might get $10. Your manager gets $15. He must get $15, he's your manager, after all. The divisional managers get $20 and maybe the office staff gets $10. The rest? 

That goes to the CEO. Yep, that's right, the big boss. The guy which you rarely see and drives the BMW. He is entitled to the biggest cut, after all, he started the company, he put up the funds and he caries the risk. It's only fair that he should make more money. 

The fact  remains that this is a classic example of one of those pyramid schemes. The guy at the top makes the most money. 

Let's say you somehow start to make more than your manager. Is it possible? It certainly is. At some stage in my live I worked as a contractor for a large company doing technical computer training. I invoiced per day and some months my salary was more than the divisional manager's salary. 

What do you think happened? I don't even need to tell you this cause you already know the answer. I'll tell you anyway. I almost got fired. Not retrenched, fired. In the end to keep the peace I decided to take a pay cut, and that was that. You dare not make more money than your boss. That's the rules for a big company pyramid scheme.

That brings me to network marketing. What happens in a network marketing system? For one thing, if you are part of my down line, then I want you to make more money than me. Yes, I want you to make more money cause that means a percentage of your money comes to me. 

So if you do well, you are happy, and I'll be happy. I will even help you to make more money. I want you to make more money. Even more than me. Don't you think that's fair. Even more fair than what happens in a big company?

You see, people think that the person that started the MLM makes all the money. It's so far from the truth. In fact, you can make more than the person who introduced you to the system. If you do your work and become successful in the structure, you can potentially make more than the person who introduced you to it. The best thing is, you won't get fired. 

With Be Motivated Today, for instance,  you will get a nice bonus if you perform well and introduce others to your matrix. Do you see where I'm going with this? 

Don't just slam network marketing before you know the facts. Once you, "get it", you will understand that this form of business is by far the best out there. 

With illegal pyramid schemes, you are promised great returns for doing nothing in a short period of time. You don't receive anything in return, except money. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  

That's a pyramid scheme and it's illegal. Most MLM's are registered companies with long track records. Do your research. The other great thing about network marketing is the fact that you don't have to employ staff. 

When you join a network marketing system, you are the CEO of your company. But instead of employing people you basically contract people to work for you. 

If they sell the product or service, they get a commission and you get a commission, and your up line gets a commission and so on. You don't need to worry about medical aids, pension funds, leave or any admin that goes with a big company. 

The best thing though is that you can decide when you work and how much you work. Little effort, little money. Big effort, big money. That's just how it works. 

I'm part of a network marketing system. It's actually called an Automated Passive Income Creator(APIC) system. It works for me and also for my down line. I'm earning a good passive income from it and so does my down line. I have started my own company and I'm the CEO. 

I know people are skeptic about MLM's but get the facts before you just say, NO. Just give it a try.
