Network Marketing Thoughts

So some people absolutely despise Network Marketing ....like think it's the devil himself at the top of alllllll the companies that utilize its business model. They think everyone that is a distributor for a network marketing company is trying to live on the beach and travel the world in a private jet by manipulating their friends and family into buying worthless junk and teaching others to do the same. Well here is the truth: there are some greedy network marketing  people who only see $ signs when they see people......but I have met some greedy people in the military and any other job for that matter. That's a matter of the persons heart. It's wicked and evil to desire to be rich. The Bible says they that will be rich (will meaning wanting to be rich ) fall into many foolish and hurtful lusts. God says, to Lay not up treasures for yourself on the earth and to labor not for wealth. God wants us to be content with food and raiment. But here is a thought.....just a thought. ....some people get into a network marketing company because they love the product. We as people  naturally share and recommend  things that are helpful to us everyday, for instance I rave about the moby wrap and tula for baby wearing, and Trader Joe's for decently priced organic produce. ....however I have never gotten a check in the mail or any free products for recommending their business to others. With network marketing its pretty much a glorified refferral program. What in the world is wrong with a person sharing something they love and and getting a referral bonus as a thank you for sharing their product and bringing in more business for that company? In our experience with Young Living we first got a starter kit because we wanted to try using oils and fell in Love with God's creation of healing plants. Purity is big for us; somewhere in the neighborhood of 330% more tea tree oil is sold than is even grown in a year. With the essential oil industry booming and  just about every retailer besides McDonald's now selling them I believe and stand by a company who has their own farms which personal friends of mine have visited and watched first hand the distillation process. I am so greatful and thankful for the opportunity to have essential oils and supplements for our family and it's pretty much all reimbursed with our monthly commission and referral bonus check. Plus rewards points on top of that!! Anyway long blog post short message to the network marketing haters of this world: not all network marketing distributors are greedy predators trying to rival the lifestyle Warren Buffet.
