There are a lot of opinions about network marketing, and with that, come many skeptics. You might have heard this business model called a “pyramid scheme”, which has the connotation that only the people at the top are gaining at the expense of others, and that is it difficult to make a lot of money, but done right, it can change lives. Network marketing has gotten a bad stigma over the years, but today’s guest is on a mission to change the perception of this industry and show others the great things that it can do for people. 

Toni Vanschoyck has been working with start-up network marketing companies for over 20 years after owning 2 successful traditional businesses that she started after being burnt out from her corporate job. She has now earned millions with her network marketing business, has sat on advisory boards, and has also been a liaison and helped small startups and small business owners through using social media, increasing sales goals, relationship building, and retention of current customers and representatives. Toni has also written three best-selling Amazon books under the series “Effing Simple” and has created the first CRM campaign for network marketers and small business owners.

In this episode, Toni is honest about the fact that she also used to be a skeptic about network marketing, until she realized that she just wasn’t doing it right. Toni learned that in order to be successful in network marketing, you can’t be ego-driven. Being a person of service, leading with value, and always having the objective of helping people first, is what will lead to success, and that goes for any business. She emphasizes the importance of having systems in place and explains what she teaches people in order to lead them to a path of success in this industry. Toni explains the benefits of joining a networking marketing business vs. a franchise model, and also encourages everyone to be bold and speak your truth instead of conforming to what others want you to be. So many people can be quick to judge, but once we take the time to get educated, the judgment fades away.
