Can you really make money faster?

Someone asked me the other day, "Can I really make money faster in Liberty League than I can in a normal multi-level marketing pay plan?"

My answer was pretty simple. "Brenda, if you were in a multi-level marketing plan and someone in your downline bought some product this month....you'd probably make $10 or less on that purchase. At that rate, it would take you 8 years and 4 months to earn $1,000 on that customer's purchases.

"In Liberty League, you earn a minimum of $1,000 everytime someone buys a product. And the beautiful thing is that it takes no more time, effort, energy or marketing to earn $1,000 profits as it does to earn $5 profits. You're still going to be 'working' around 15-20 hours a week."

"So, the only question is......what is your time worth? "

It's not hard to figure out.

============
My time is worth a LOT more than $10 an hour!

Thanks for making me "unemployable", Tony.

LOL

Hi Tony. I was just wondering if you got my question from about a month ago about residual income. I would really love to hear your take.

Hi, Jess. Thanks for your note. I finally found the question you were referring to. My apologies for the delay.

There's no question that residual income exists. In most cases, earning a significant and "non-declining" residual income will require an ongoing level of energy and time.

That's not a bad thing at all. It just means that -- for the most part -- there is no such thing as a "true walkaway residual income" in MLM.

And you can prove this to yourself by doing some polling. See how many people you can find in a traditional MLM pay plan who are earning a non-declining income from a business that they built 10 years ago and haven't touched since.

Take your time; you'll need it. :)

So, with that said, it becomes an issue of "How long do you want to take to hit $35,000 a month" (the figure you mentioned in your previous question).

I can tell you how long it took me. In Liberty League, I had my first $40k+ month in my first 7 months in business.

And MOST of that was completely passive income that required no effort on my part.
.

So, to me, Jess, it's not a question of whether LLI's pay plan is "better" than MLM. The point is simply that -- yes -- Liberty League does have residual and passive aspects.

Beyond that it's just a question of how quickly you want to reach your goals.

I hope that assists!
