Recession looming, gas prices rising, mortgage foreclosures, record bankruptcies…yes good times are on the way. I really don’t want to seem like a heartless bast…well, insensitive, but the very best years for MLM / network marketing and its participants has always been during recessions.
Why? Because people join business opportunities most when they are afraid. Fear has always been a bigger motivator than desire. It’s simply human nature. The non-MLM population is afraid, and it’s going to get worse for them before it gets better.
Why? Because the U.S. dollar is dropping like a rock against virtually every world currency. That has caused the price of oil to skyrocket. Investors are buying oil futures as a hedge against the falling dollar. Only two things will happen if this trend continues; oil prices will continue on their record setting rise through $200, possibly even $300 per barrel and MLM will explode on the U.S. and world scene.
When you can’t afford to drive to work and put food on the table at the same time, making a few phone calls each night seems a whole lot less scary. As inflation begins to show its ugly face and the unemployment line grows in length, network marketing will become far more attractive.
Just like knowing which stocks to invest in before everyone else does, I believe I have just given you the hot tip of the year. It’s getting very scary out there for a lot of people and you have their financial solution right in your pocket. They’re looking, are you doing what it takes so they can find you?
