It is time to QUIT your current Network Marketing company?
Welcome back, my mompreneur!
This week’s blog topic is one that has been buzzing around lately by a few of my followers, so let’s get to it: Should you quit your current network marketing company?
Here’s the deal, I am not at all promoting shiny object syndrome.
Uh… Alison, what the heck is “shiny object syndrome”?
OMG! I’m so glad you asked 😊
Well, shiny object syndrome is when you hear about new products and you just always gotta have it. Sure, that might be okay with like physical items. But when you’re talking about your career, I don’t recommend it. It’s not smart to just jump from company to company. Especially if you are serious about network marketing as a profession. You’ve got to commit.
The grass isn’t always greener, but sometimes it is.
People come up with these reasons, like “I’ve run out of people to talk to” or “my upline doesn’t support me.” These aren’t the best reasons to jump ship. It’s not an easy career as many tend to assume. It’s simple sure, but it’s DEFINITELY not easy.
So then when should you consider switching companies?
I recently transitioned companies for the first time ever and let me just say, I didn’t just decide to do it overnight. Here are 5 reasons you might want to consider making a move:
Number one – You lost your passion.
One thing that I need to make sure I’m clear about is that passion and motivation are NOT one in the same. If you work on your business only when you are motivated, you’re not going to see long-term results. People who are passionate about their work will often work on their business more so when they are not motivated because their passion will drive them to do it. So, if that passion is gone, you’re not going to be successful.

Number two – A change in products.
A change in products can be either good or bad, so it depends on the direction the company goes. When the formulation changes and it doesn’t work for you or your customers anymore, it might be a good time to switch. Sometimes there’s a change in price and now its more expensive or now the quality isn’t as good. Maybe the company isn’t innovative or competitive to the market out there. Remember that you have to believe in your own products to successfully promote them. So, if you’re not feeling it, your customers aren’t going to either.
Number three AND four – There’s no system for duplication and your team isn’t winning.
You can create a system that is so easy an eight or an eighty-five-year-old can do it. A good system saves you time and helps increase the odds of success. Many of us are starting to pull away from home parties and cold calls. We’re starting to build online and those strategies and systems are so easily duplicatable. We want it to be easy for us and our customer’s interactions and sales.
If you have a rocking system, yet the rest of your team seems to not have the same or similar success as you, there’s a problem. There might be many reasons as to why that is but simply put – if you are the only one succeeding, you might want to start looking elsewhere. Your success should be in addition to your team’s success if the company is doing what its supposed to.
And the most important reason, number five – Your gut is telling you it’s time to move on.
Your gut is never, ever, ever going to steer you wrong. If you feel it inside you that it’s time to go, you should follow it.
Just remember if you decide to look at something else, you’re not a bad person and doesn’t mean you’ve failed. You’re just dating. You want to see what’s out there so that you can make an informed decision that’s best for you and your family.
Deciding to switch companies is not something you want to take lightly. You want to take it very seriously and be very honest with yourself about everything. You want to be clear about what your reasons are and make sure that you’re not having that shiny object syndrome.
Ultimately, if you’re not happy, it’s time to make a change. Is that change going to be in how you conduct your business in your current company, or does that change need to be by moving on?
