While visiting my friend Richard Petrillo’s Blog the other day and came across a refreshingly honest and I believe on point article on the top ten reasons why you will fail in Network Marketing.
Richard and I had just recently discussed the reasons why so many Network Marketers get off track and eventually succumb to their original life path; working for the MAN and the 9-5 hamster wheel.
I have been visiting Richard’s blog for almost a full year now because he is an expert at laying things out in a very easy to follow manner and providing leading edge content that always keeps me in the forefront of what’s going on with regard to all things “Internet Marketing”.
I am very thankful to Richard for countless articles with absolutely crucial information that have made my Internet and Network Marketing life so much simpler.
So, after we spoke I decided once again to scroll through his posts, searching for a nugget that I may have missed and found an Article that was absolutely on point, real and so very truthful to it’s core that I had to share it with you here . . . with his permission of course!
Let’s Get REAL!!!!
I read endless articles, posts and tweet related to and linking to information on how to succeed in your Network Marketing Business, but isn’t the best strategy to work backwards in this industry! What I mean is, when you are setting goals isn’t the best thing to do envision where you want to end up and then set about a plan to get there?
I think the same is true with regard to Daily Rituals, Strategies and following a simple plan to get results and being very postive, focused, motivated and committed are crucial characteristics of a success Netwrk Marketer and business person.
But . . . wouldn’t it also be nice to know the REAL reasons that we as Entrpreneurs fail in Network Marketing, so that when we begin to slide down that slippery slope we will recognize the signs and take no time to grab our own boot strapts and pull ourselves out!
I truly recognised bits of myself in each and every one of these Reasons! So even when you might think you got this Network Marketing thang totally figured out, just becareful that it doesn’t come back out of the blue to bite you in the you know what!!
These Ten REAL Reasons that you will fail in Network Marketing are true of all of us at some point in our careers and I believe that if we become awareof these reasons and our own personal issues before it goes that far, we can jump in to save ourselves before it’s too late and alas we are back on that wheel.
So, here they are the Ten Real Reasons You Will Fail in Network Marketing! I’m not going to share them all or expand on them in too much detail because I want you to visit Richard’s Site to Get The FULL DETAILS!

The first lesson to learn in Network Marketing is… It’s not up to you to decide if your business opportunity is right for someone else.
