Why I switched network marketing companies




Is it time for you to switch companies?
Do you feel that nudge towards a new adventure?
Maybe you have been thinking about it for awhile or maybe it is a new feeling that has popped up. Either way it is a hard feeling to push away. Once the feeling creeps in it is something you have to face. 

What is it that is holding you back from following your gut? I mean if you are reading this it is very likely that you are considering making a switch. Is it the fear of making a mistake, the fear of being labeled a quitter, possibly leaving your current company 'too soon', or is it fear of being the subject of the gossip mill? Regardless of your reasons, if your having second thoughts about whether you should stick it out or hang in there... maybe I can help. 

You might be thinking... who are you to help me. Well this conversation is one that I have had numerous times and one that I literally just walked through. I recently made the VERY difficult decision to switch network marketing companies and start something new. 

Truth be told, I was torn up until the day I announced it on my social media but in my heart I knew it was the right decision.  There are reasons you should leave your current company and reasons that I don't find to be a good enough reason to jump ship. 

Let's dive deeper into the reasons I decided to make my switch. 

LOST MY PASSION

Not only did I lose my passion for the company I was with but in turn it was making me lose my passion for the industry I have loved for over 10 years. 

This is supposed to be fun!! Did you know that? If you are not enjoying this journey, you need to ask yourself why? If you don't look forward to talking about your business consider whether it is a good fit for you in the first place. If you are not passionate about what you doing, find something else. You have to be a product of your product and be inspired by it. 

I knew that I had to find my spark and my joy in my business again. I tried for over 1.5 years to resuscitate my passion for my business. It never came back. That is when I knew it was time to move on. 

TEAM CULTURE
I know, I know what all the leaders of every company tell you... it is up to you to thrive not other people. I call BS on that! If the team culture in your company is toxic and you do not feel celebrated RUN FOR THE HILLS, lol. Ideally, you really want to be connected to a culture that is truly supportive of  YOU and not worried about what you can do for them. If you are not being fully appreciated where you are, MOVE ON to a team and culture that will embrace you. NEVER stay because of others expectations of you. I knew I wanted to be with a group of people who prayed over my business and appreciated me no matter my rank.

IT IS OKAY TO MAKE A CHANGE. IT IS OKAY TO SWITCH COMPANIES. 

I am not sure where the idea got put into our brains that we have to stay with one network marketing company the rest of our lives or we can not be taken seriously. People around you change professions constantly, this is no different.

With that being said... 
I believe that if you are switching companies because you think it is going to be easier or the grass is greener on the other side... that is not a good reason. If you struggle in one company there is a good chance you will struggle in your next company too, until you develop the right skill and the right mind-set.

Wherever you go you have to be treating your business like a BUSINESS.

Of course, you can make a couple hundred bucks here and there by just putting in minimal effort. The beauty of this business is that it fits in the nooks and crannies of your life.  However, those big checks your chasing do not come with just luck and a few social media posts.

If you are in a state of limbo and not sure which direction to go feel free to reach out and we can figure it out together and I will be happy to share more of my story and experiences with you!
