I recently saw an article on the 25 hardest jobs in the world. I’m not going to try and compare network marketing to being a police officer, a firefighter, a prison worker, a mortician, a farmer, or any of the other physically, mentally and emotionally draining, and even dangerous jobs that appeared on that list. I’ve had challenging jobs, from scooping poop and corralling vicious dogs at an animal shelter to working for very demanding clients at a PR agency, but by far the most personally challenging and fulfilling work I’ve ever done is network marketing.
You see me on social media smiling with my team, raving about my products and sharing how amazing the opportunity to be my own boss is. That’s all authentic, but it probably oversimplifies what this profession takes and makes it look easier than it is. It’s more difficult to convey one of the best, and at times the worst, aspects of the network marketing profession – the consistent level of introspection it takes to be successful.
