Many home-based workers have a single product or service that they provide. They may sell electronics or nutritional products, or provide services based on their skills. Specializing in one thing does have its benefits, but those who derive all of their income from a single source are more susceptible to economic fluctuations. The most successful work-at-home people are those who find ways to create multiple streams of income.

The old adage, "Don't put all of your eggs in one basket" does play a role when working from home. Developing multiple streams of income will help to insure that you always have a paycheck coming in. Today, one of the best ways to do that is with a multi-level marketing (MLM) business. While the term "MLM" has gotten a bad rap, it certainly is one of the most profitable types of home-based businesses to be a part of.

How MLM Works

MLM is definitely the way to go for those aspiring to have more than "just enough" to live on. MLM is a partnership of sorts. You go into business with a company, and you make a commitment to each other. You sell products for them and they, in turn, provide you with support and the opportunity to make residual income. Many of today's leading economic forecasters predict that over the next few years, 75 percent of the world's consumer business will be conducted via MLM plans.

When deciding to pursue an MLM opportunity, the key is to learn everything that you can about this method of selling--how it works, why it works, etc. The idea is based upon different people selling not only the company's products, but also selling the idea to his or her friends, with those people in turn, introducing others to the company and the MLM program. MLM has made a lot of people very wealthy as it is an "endless chain" to making money. The key to success with MLM is to take your time and choose the opportunity that matches your likes and dislikes. Do not join the first program that comes along. Find one that you will enjoy doing, and keep in mind that it takes time to build a solid downline.
