Book Review: The Flip Flop CEO
Summary: A lot of people are working from home, part-time or full-time, and leading fulfilling lives. I do and I love it!
What is Multi-level Marketing?
MLM by definition is a system for selling goods and/or services through a network of distributors. Each distributor is responsible and compensated for recruiting new members to the multi-level marketing system. Recruitment is key to growing ones network. Each person that is recruited will become a member of a team, this is called the “downline” and the recruiter can make money off of the sales efforts of their downline. Have I lost you yet?? Don’t worry, at first I was puzzled too. Then a friend of mine suggested I read The Flip Flop CEO.
I am a skeptic. I don’t trust easily. I ask a million questions and still I have more…this book answered many of those questions and opened my eyes to what my life could look like. I could build my business around my life instead of the other way around. What a concept! All I kept thinking when I started the book was “it’s too good to be true”…..by the time I had finished I realized I was wrong. There were people building a life centered around this model and they were making good money and had the time to enjoy it.
I liked that the book wasn’t company specific, I think in a way it made me trust the content more because I didn’t think they were pitching a product to me instead they were presenting a concept. The book is cute and at times funny. I was presented with different angles of the business structure and encouraged to use my social skills to make hard earned cash. They discuss upline and downline….terms I didn’t know much about before I read it.
This book is insightful and entertaining as well as concise and to the point. At times I couldn’t put it down, kinda weird considering it wasn’t your regular murder mystery page turner. I don’t want to get into specifics of content because I would only do the book a disservice. Go get it! You will not regret spending the money to purchase a copy whether you choose this business or not. At the very least you will gain insight as to why all your friends are suddenly driving a BMW or Mercedes.
