Master This to Profit Online and in Life – What If Your MLM Company Shuts Down or Changes?
What if your MLM Company Shuts down?
Do you know How to protect your Hard Earned income from such an eventuality? I am not one to use the word HARD with Work, yet in this case, I must say Most MLM Builders Work dang Hard!
We are talking about Network marketing. Affiliate and MLM type companies. Many times usually just before a fall or If they have been around for yonks and need fresh blood, they change the comp plan.
So much so it doesn’t feel the same and your income drops majorly, in some cases by more than 60%!
What would you do, what would happen to your life?
Well it happened to us circa 2014, 15 and 2017.
Some Law of Attraction generalists and even coaches may say you manifested that… Seriously how could you…
Because its believed, everything that happens is in your Mind…So Dr Who-esque tendencies here huh! Considering you wouldn’t be the only affected Rep!
Lets preface this episode shall we!
NOTE: Before we preface, understand that We are NO LONGER PROMOTING A Network Marketing MLM Company.
Now that we are clear…Here is the latest in the MLM industry woes.
Advocare shut down weekend of 18th May. In case you don’t know of Advocare, they’re a large health and wellness network marketing company with a huge customer and distributor base. Over 100,000 globally.
Technically, they didn’t shut down. Rather, they revised their business model so they’re no longer a network marketing company. And to a Rep or Distributor, this is the same as a Shut down!
Now, they claim to have gone retail sales and left a one tier affiliate model. What?
That means that people who have built large teams have lost a sizable income, many of over 6 figures a year…!
My heart goes out to those reps in Advocare who spent years building a business over time. Similar thing happened to us. It breaks the heart!
But here’s the deal, it’s part of the game for the brains behind these companies… The MLM model is created to suit only 3%! Meaning the 97% Reps are simply keeping the top 3% in luxury….Hornet’s nest? Bring it on!
Please understand that many people do benefit from promoting MLM products and services. Just that the writing is on the wall; not “If but when” will it shut down. Sadly it happens all the time in network marketing.
See this list of now defunct MLMs and you will understand what I am talking about.
Anyone remember WakeUpNow – WUN, MOBE? Many more
Its always sad, heartbreaking and unfortunate for those building teams and losing income overnight. In essence, you’re just a sales rep for the company you’re partnered with.
So let’s say you work a job for a company and they go out of business, people lose jobs, same deal. You don’t own your “business” in network marketing or MLM. Just like you don’t own your job.
I don’t know the exact reason why Advocare did what they did other than what the CEO said on Business For Home. But it’s business as usual and damn scary for those whose income has disappeared overnight, right?
Well like I said, it’s just part of the game, unless you run your business or own your and create the products etc. this can happen at any time in Network marketing.
Heck, it’s happened to us before too, we’ve lost so money, savings we couldn’t afford to.
So how do you protect yourself from a company shutting down with your source of livelihood?

Brand You..thats what.
If your Network Marketing Company Shuts Down – Here’s What To Do
Absolutely, you want to brand yourself, and learn proper business skills.
It took us 4 shut downs and/or failed MLMs, with our income along with the trust of many incl. loved ones that the penny dropped.
That this business model, though great for some, is NOT for all. And it is also the hardest on your relationships as a person.
The lessons took us into Personal development and tens of thousands of $$ in investment. And I promise you it takes lots of lessons to Learn Practical No BS Business Skills.
We do Not just randomly message people. Rather, we teach our process, which is simple and Duplicatable in any business. You’ll Learn how to:
- Determine Need,
- Invite to a Presentation,
- Collect a Decision. And…
- Follow up or check in, with Posture. We are NOT attached to the answer. Just to the Service and Impact. DAILY.
Its a process once learnt, makes marketing anything on and offline in the Direct Selling space so much less stressful.
These skills are the same reason I’ve had Reps from companies that have shut down message me personally asking for other ways to make income. And how when I’ve lost incomes in the past I’ve been able to get right back to where I was really fast.
I want those types of results for you too, but you won’t have to spend tens of thousands to make it happen. As I did….
And you can get my 1 on 1 help which I rarely do anymore. I only offer it to my Mastermind members.
Imagine if you could learn the skills to have people messaging you every day, being able to build teams wherever you go, and even if your company shut down or terminated you, you know you’d be completely fine and have an amazing income again within weeks.
You can do this by gaining real business skills, the skills to communicate with a large group of people through a given channel. Build a relationship with them through adding value, qualify and move those interested people to a conversion mechanism where they can make a decision.
Then they self select for you, others call it closing the deal. They Buy in. 🙂
I want you to actually think about it, what if your Job Fired you, your network marketing or affiliate company shuts down, how would you get right back to that income level.
Most people don’t think about these things, because they don’t think like an entrepreneur….Most people don't think about these things, because they don't think like an entrepreneur
Has Your MLM Company Closed Its Doors? – What to do!
Obviously like all losses, it is important that you take time out to debrief your mind. To grieve, to release most of that negative emotion, because you will have lots.
If you are sold on MLM, have the Skills and Mindset to rebuild, and your current MLM Company Shuts Down, you Can Get back up and win.
All you have to do is…
Set yourself a 90 Day challenge to research 5-8 other companies that fit your core values and needs. Try out their products as a customer and test their customer service. Study their comp plans, choose one. Connect with leaders in that company, get you a Sponsor and get back in the game. The sooner the better.
If you do it right, share your story and processes, people will resonate, people who are into BRAND YOU. They already want to buy the things you have to offer and/or looking to join a business.
We’ve done it numerous times, and I can show you how too.
Don’t be an average Bobby!
