1. Regardless of what your potential or existing sponsor may tell you, you do need to have some skills to make money in MLM, otherwise known as network marketing, or multi-level marketing. Many companies will market their opportunity to you as something that "sells itself" and that is simply not true.
Even if the company that you represent or plan to represent has the best products or services in the world, you will need to get these products and services in front of a lot of people. And this doesn't just happen by osmosis. So you see, there is a learning curve involved. Ask yourself if you are ready to dedicate the time and energy to learn. If not, you will not be able to build a big enough downline MLM network marketing business to make any money or to even break even.
