We all need and want to make money, but at the heart of most people is a strong desire to give back to the world in some way. As we become older and wiser we realize that although money is a necessity in our lives, it has nothing to do with the true meaning of life.

Despite this knowledge, many of us have become trapped into a life where the main focus is on working to pay the bills. We spend more time with our co-workers than we do with our families, try to get in a bit of time at the end of the day taking care of our family obligations, and go to bed exhausted, only to get up and repeat the same routine day after day, week after week, month after month. In a busy world, full of things we have to do, most of us just cannot find the time to reach out and help others in need.

What if there were a way to make money, spend more time with your family and friends, and help others? Impossible? No, not at all.

If you were to write down the main problems that are destroying families in today’s world, chances are that financial instability would be very high on the list. Families are in financial turmoil, which in turn is producing stress that is simply intolerable. People are losing their homes, their relationships, and their self respect.

Did you know that a few hundred extra dollars every month would be enough to keep a large majority of people out of bankruptcy? So, what does this have to do with your ability to make money and help others?

As the economy continues to nose dive, there is one industry that is picking up speed and gaining momentum. It is poised to help millions and millions of people to escape from the turmoil of financial instability, and will create millions of new millionaires in the upcoming decade. It can help you to not only make money but to help others to do the same.

It is called network marketing, or multi level marketing. If you don’t know what network marketing is, or if you have a notion that it’s some kind of a scam, you may be surprised to hear that some of the most influential and powerful financial geniuses of our times have advocated this industry. Warren Buffet owns sever multi level marketing companies, and Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki have stated that this business model is the best way for average people to become wealthy.

The true beauty of the network marketing industry is that nobody can make money unless they help others to do the same. The more people you help, the more money you make. The old dog eat dog rules do not apply here, there is no competition but instead a true sense of teamwork and sharing of knowledge.

The cost to start a multi level marketing business is very low, which makes this a viable solution for anyone who either needs extra money or needs to replace a lost income. Despite the low cost of entry, the potential to make money is very high, provided that effort and consistency are applied.

Before joining a network marketing company, be sure to do your due diligence. All multi level marketing businesses are not created equally, and although this is a respectable business model, there will always be people out there trying to rip you off. Do your research, find a company that is legitimate, be sure it markets products that you feel you can make money promoting, and be prepared for a great ride.

When you look back in five years and see that you’ve not only created a better life for your family but for many others as well, you’ll truly understand that you can make money and help others.
