The Fun Side of MLM - What makes this an amazing industry
Network Marketing has a fun side? Heck yeah! It's fun when you are:
1. Helping others make money
2. Building something so vast that is pays your children's children
Oh, it doesn't happen right away, and anyone that tells you otherwise is lying to you. RUN from them and don't look back. What's fun is the process. The process is especially fun when you have a coach/mentor and a proven system. Yes, the products need to be remarkable and value priced as well. Oh yeah, network marketing really doesn't work without products!
Let's be completely honest, we are all in the industry because we want to retire early and live a comfortable lifestyle. What's more fun that knowing you are putting together the foundation for an MLM dynasty? Even if your goals are to earn $1000.00 extra per month, it's still fun to know that you are only 3-5 people away from making it happen!

I was there about 15 years ago. It was a terrible experience and really puts a bad taste in our mouths.
How to have fun in the industry
I can't even begin to tell you how much fun I am having right now. Every day, something positive will pop up. One of my partners will share a breakthrough with me, I will see in increase in our products being purchased by our customers, I meet someone that truly wants to own their life, and it just goes on and on.
So, how do you have fun in Network Marketing? Well, in my personal experience, it all happened when I met my mentor and he introduced me to his amazing system. The same MLM system that has been free for since 2005 and continues to produce successful marketers around the world. It all starts with step 1:
