How to Deal with Family Disapproval

Even though there have been various successful multilevel marketing businesses over the years, many people still have problems with their family disapproving of what they do. Their objections can range from worrying that you’re being “scammed” to religious objections. Either of these may be difficult to handle.

One way to deal with your family’s disapproval is by offering PROOF. Whether it’s proof that you’re NOT being scammed or proof that your religion WANTS you to have a viable income, proof may be the only way to convince your family that there’s nothing wrong with direct sales or MLMs. The next step is how to prove it.

First, let your family members try the product you’re selling through network marketing. Many times, this is all it will take. Once they try your amazing product, it’s possible they’ll totally understand why you’re selling it and get on board. They may even want to sell it, too.

Religious issues can be more difficult to get past, although it can be done in many cases. Proof may, again, be involved in dealing with these family members. Prove to them that you won’t be working on the main religious day of the week. The beauty of a multilevel marketing business is that you can work when you want. You may need to prove that it’s not going to take you away from your family any more than a normal job would. Your product can be anything you want, so it doesn’t have to be “sinful” product.

In the end, if you cannot get your family to accept your proof, you’ll have a decision to make. Consider your own happiness in the process.
