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.

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

What To Do When You Want To Quit!

Have you ever had a time, a day, where you just want to quit. Quit life, quit being a mum, quit the diet, quit the job as it all gets too much and you’ve simply had enough. Yes? Well that’s me most days, luckily though it’s only for about five short minutes but yes the feeling of throwing my teddy out of the cot arises more often than not and more so as I’ve gotten older.

Why? Probably because as a mum you feel you have to be in charge of everything; the house, the family life, the bills, the shopping, the extra curricular activities your kids attend and the list goes on. So now we get the gist of quitting life, what should you do to help you avoid quitting as that is the only thing that is actually important, to not quit.

Here are my 5 Top Tips to stop and help you;
1. Give yourself permission to feel these quitting emotions even if it’s for 5 seconds, acknowledge them then throw them out like the bad rubbish they are as we don’t need any negativity.

2. Give yourself a talking too, remember why you are doing these things, if it’s the weight loss,  reason with your conscience how much you will feel better when you’ve lost weight. If it’s the kids, remember why you love them.

3. Give yourself some time out as sometimes that’s all we need, a cup of tea, a half hour in the bath or all day if you can. Grab a book and go back to bed.

4. Give yourself some leeway and delegate some of  your chores, could the older children help around the house more, could you learn to shop online, could you buddy up with a friend whose child does the same activities to take turns for lifts?

5. Give yourself something to look forward to, a date night, a spa weekend, a holiday and hopefully by concentrating on that, this will make the suffering of today worthwhile.

I hope this has helped and if you can relate to any of it, please do reach out, it’s always great to connect to like-minded people, you can find me here (linktr.ee/shaz_crowley) or leave a comment below. Feel free to share and I look forward to sharing more of my ‘Life in the 40’s’ with you very soon.
