Why more Mum’s are turning to Network Marketing

As a Full Time Carer, my career was limited, I even thought over, as I had chosen to give up teaching to become a full time carer and be there for both my children and that is how I stumbled upon the term ‘Network Marketing’.

What is it? It is quite simply a marketing strategy for the sale of products or services from a company through a representative and the individual can earn some money doing it. Other terms such as ‘MLM’ and ‘Direct Sellin’ spring to mind too. How did I stumble across it? To cut a long story short, I got involved seeing an advert on facebook that quite simply said earn money from home. I had no idea what it involved but being a bored stay at home mum in need of some instant cash, I inquired. That was in 2016 and I have not looked back since.

Why are more mum’s joining the industry, again another easy question to answer.


As Ray Higdon states ‘It’s the lowest cost with the lowest overheads for the average person to be able to create a business’

You tell me, who doesn’t want to earn some extra spending money? It’s a lot easier to do that selling goods or a service to friends and family than taking on a second job or putting in overtime. The fun can really start to happen when friends and family see what you are doing and jump on board to do the same and here is another famous quote, “Teamwork makes the Dream Work” and this is where the pennies turn into pounds. There have been many success stories of mum’s giving up their full time jobs, retiring their husbands and all whilst being at home with the children

Does Network Marketing work for everyone, the answer is NO and the main reason for this is it does take work, just like any other business and to learn some new skills; many do not believe they can achieve what others have done before them and quit before success. Given that more and more mum’s are turning to network marketing it is not surprising that network marketing is turning more mums’ into self made millionaires.

I hope this has given you some thought into the industry and will certainly be talking about it some more soon. I personally am not a quitter and therefore I am in it for the long haul given that as a full time carer there really iss nothing else that will make me afford the life I dream.

How to Overcome A Mental Block.

First of all, let me apologise for being AWOL recently. This is my first blog of 2019 and we are already in March, yikes. Why have I had some time out, well quite simply I have hit a crossroads in my business life and I started to doubt what I was doing and therefore unsure of what to write about. I had a mental block.

Today I would like to share how I have since taken the courage to start back up and trust my journey and the process. Thus the title of my first blog of 2019 is ‘How To Overcome A Mental Block’. As a mum we often face challenges on a daily basis; some small, some huge. Smaller ones like fighting with our children over what to have for breakfast to getting ready on time to bigger challenges like bullying and financial issues. We simply have to find a way to overcome these and I hope how I have overcome my current block can help you too.

Not sure where to go

First, I decided I had to admit my block to myself, rather than stifle it inside and this allowed me to acknowledge it existed and understand it was having an affect on myself as well as my business. Second I knew I had to share it and this I didn’t find easy, admitting I was unsure about my business, I mean who would trust me from then on but I knew it was necessary to move forward. The best part of this stage was it allowed others, my friends and colleagues to share their mental blocks too and we began to not only trust one another more but help one another. Then I sought coaching, this was from various people who I found I could be truly honest with and not judged, there is nothing worse than trying to be open but inside holding back through fear of being criticized.

Finally I began to journal and seriously if you haven’t tried this yet, I would strongly recommend it. I hadn’t believed in journalling before but it has allowed me to often write down my thoughts, without over thinking and question myself on paper and then give myself answers in a pragmatic way. Simple but effective. With the help of two courses I’m currently taking let’s get the show of 2019 back on the road.

So to sum up actions to take if experiencing a mental block
1. Admit it to yourself
2. Share with others, they may be able to offer some advice
3. Ask for expert advice, people who can be non partial and be prepared to listen and take action
4. Journal your thoughts on a daily basis

Thank you for reading and if this has helped in any way or you could add to the tips, please leave a comment below. If you would like to know the courses I’m currently taking then comment below or message me via @linktr.ee/shaz_crowley

See you very soon,

Why I love Network Marketing

Most people these days have heard of Network Marketing, Direct Sales or MLM, many have tried it with companies and it hasn’t worked out for them so why do I love it?

First of all, my situation. My teaching job that I gave up when my daughter started school, she has Down’s Syndrome and my hours included night classes, travelling and not always the same school holidays due to different boroughs. I wanted to be there each day to speak to her Teaching Assistant and I knew before and after school clubs wouldn’t be for her. So from a family perspective, I became a stay at home mum. However after always being a career minded person this didn’t sit too well and that is how I stumbled across working from home.

This was nearly three years ago and I haven’t looked back, why?
Here are my 5 top reasons

1. Simple, I earn money; it really is that simple in that for every order I place I earn commission. For each level both myself and my team achieve we earn a monthly income and if I work towards certain company incentives then that is more money again. This money means I have my own independence and I can use it on any treats I want so therefore not impacting on the family money.

2. I make new friends; being at home most days it can become hard to connect with new people, however with social media as it is I now connect with new people daily and often find that they turn out to be long lasting friends who I can chat too.

3. I love learning; Network Marketing really is a profession rather than just a hobby so recently I have started treating it like a business which means learning skills. Skills that are needed most are confidence and people skills. In this profession people share regularly their tips, advice, techniques and it is great to be part of this culture.

4. I am my own boss; I seriously work my own hours and take time off as and when I like. In addition to the school runs I can attend Sports Day, Assemblies, have lunch with friends and a pamper any time I choose without asking permission.

5. I see the future; so many jobs are no longer secure, so many shops are shutting down, so many companies are relying more and more on technology, in that our future of employment is changing. This profession has only just started and the future looks great.

I hope this has been of value, if you are in Network Marketing, do you agree with my five tips? Have I missed any points. If you are not happy with your current situation could this help you? If so, please get in touch and we can chat, what I do may or may not be a fit for you but we could still chat. Feel free to share if you agree.

See you next week
