Residual Income Opportunity - My Experience

Updated on October 30, 2010

I vividly remember the first time I came across the concept of residual income. It was when I saw a network marketing business opportunity.

The person who shown me the business presentation, took the example of McDonalds and explained to me how residual income model (Residual income opportunity) works. He has shown me how I can position myself in a situation similar to Ray Kroc when I join the business he was doing.

Residual income opportunity fascinated me. Work once and get paid for a long time. Who in the right frame of mind doesn’t like the idea of getting a check every month for the same or greater amount for the work you did years ago? I don’t think anybody dislikes this idea.

I joined in the business and started doing whatever my upline suggested. Prepared a list of friends and family members and with my upline’s support we have started showing this residual income opportunity. Some liked it and joined with me and many others didn’t see what I saw and said it wasn’t for them.

When I completely ran out of my family, friends and acquaintances list, then I had to go out and meet some people out in the public places. I don’t have sales background and know nothing about talking to people face-to-face or over the phone. It was quite a new experience to me and very uncomfortable one too.

Even though I was very uncomfortable speaking to strangers, I used to go out and meet people. I used to steer the conversation towards finances and find out if they are looking to make additional income.

My upline told me to meet people who are at your ambition level or above. But I used to prospect people below my ambition level. This went on for a while. I used to sponsor people here and there, but momentum never really kicked in. Finally after 4 years of frustration, I said enough is enough.

Fast forward couple of years.

I was browsing the internet for something; I came across a business model which fits my strengths perfectly. No cold prospecting, meeting strangers in public places, no lotions & potions and no buying of products on a monthly basis to meet the personal business volume requirements.

I was very skeptic and researched everything on the company, founders and business model. I wanted to prove that, it was in fact a scam. But the deeper I dug, the more intrigued I got. I went through all the information and did my due diligence.

After finding all the information about the company, founders and people involved, it absolutely blown me away and till today it amazes me with the simplicity and the power to leverage one’s efforts. I would like to invite you to check it for yourself. Why in the world I was riding a horse buggy when Porsche available with all the bells and whistles? See, I didn’t know what I didn’t know.
