1. It's an investment in you and your family's future.
Did you know that someone who starts and builds a State Farm insurance business has to give their business back to State Farm when they retire or pass away? Why spend time and energy building something you really have no ownership over?
If you’re going to spend your time here on earth working, I ask that you strongly consider doing two things.
Spend it doing something you enjoy. Something that allows you to build relationships and create experiences you will never forget along the way. After all, on your last day on earth, you will be thinking about the people you love and the fun times you had. So make sure you create a lot of those memories along the way.
Do something that will allow you to pass on the benefits of all your hard work to the ones you love.
2. It provides a flexible schedule and you can work from anywhere.
Do you think it would be fun to go on a last minute trip with your family and not have to get permission from anyone?
Since you are your own boss, you can head out of town whenever you want. You have to remember that showing up daily and being consistent is key to success; however, connecting with people, even on vacation, is beneficial to your YL business.
An MLM business is built through your relationships and through people you and your team know ordering products online. That means you can really do this business from anywhere, as little or as much as you want. You can share YL with your friends at a summer barbeque, with your family at a holiday party, or at a destination wedding in Mexico. To get started, all they have to do is get on the website from their phone and order. It truly is work that can be done anytime, anywhere.
3. True financial freedom.
Do you feel like your drowning in debt? Like you will be paying bills for the rest of your life? Do you want to free yourself from that bondage and live debt free?
This is where we discuss residual income vs active income.
Residual income is when you continue to get paid after the work is done. This includes royalties from books, movies, or songs and also income that comes from real estate (renting out a home you own) or business investments where you don’t actually have to be present to earn it. For example, Bill Gates is still making a residual income from Microsoft even though he isn’t working there anymore.
Active income is probably what you are used to. It comes as a direct result of your efforts. This is when you work for one hour and get paid a certain amount for that hours work. This can be seen in wages, salaries, and self-employed service providers like lawyers or doctors.
In a regular job, you trade time for money (active income). When you’re at work, you get paid and when you call in sick you don't. This means you can never stop working or the money stops. What if all the hours you have put in over the last 5 years could continue making you money even if you took a month off (residual income)? Or better yet, you made more money after your month off than the month before? That is the power of network marketing and residual or recurring income.
I can say from personal experience that it takes time, hard work, and dedication to build a business that can replace an average income. But I did it, part-time, in just a few years and I am no one special. It is 100% possible. In order to build a business to be a six-figure earner, all you truly need is one thing: keep going and never quit.
Watch this video by Diamond leader Ryan Hase as he compares a Young Living business to traditional investments.
"As long as you don’t quit, you will succeed."
If you want the opportunity to get ahead of your bills, to pay off debt, the ability to pay cash for whatever you want, or to give to your favorite cause, this is your chance to work hard and to make it happen.

4. The time is right.
Do you feel like your life is too busy to start a business?
With technology and your ability to connect with hundreds or thousands of people with the push of a button, there is no time like the present to start a company that is all about connecting with people.
In the 20th century, we lived in the "Industrial Age." Whoever owned the factories controlled the wealth. Now we live in the "Information Age" where companies like Facebook and Twitter are changing the name of the game. Today, it is about building and owning networks. This has leveled the playing field. There has never been a better time to start and grow your own networking company.

5. Securing your future.
At your current job, who is working for who? Are you spending your time away from your friends and family building someone else's dream or yours?
Most people work the 40/40/40 plan. 40 hours a week, for 40 years, and retire on 40% of their basic salary.
If you are ready to build your own fortune and not someone else's, network marketing is for you.
By starting your own business you are working for your future. The time you put in is for you and your family, not someone else's.
