How Special Lesson Turns Underprivilege Into Social Mobility and Successful Shot at Fair Home Busine

Special Lesson  Turns Underprivilege Into Social Mobility and Successful Shot at Fair Home Business


Once in a rare while you come across such a mind-stretching idea that you can no longer go back to old assumptions of what is comfortable or possible. All of a sudden there are no more impediments … no more valid excuses. The issues of privilege and status quo, middle class or those who feel disenfranchised, fade into a new dawning where new born potential is alive and kicking.  

This clever breakthrough idea came from a high school teacher who set up an exercise to teach his class the role of privilege, social mobility and value of education.  

You can watch the short lesson here with diagrams.


Briefly, he told the class that they represent the country's population and everyone has a chance to get rich.

He set the task: "To move into the upper class, all you must do is throw your paper ball into the bin while sitting in your seat. "

Of course, the odds get better the closer you sit at the front. This is what privilege looks like.


Understandably, the only students who complained about fairness were those in the back of the room. For many, it was not their choice - it was allocated. Likewise, most people would not choose to be underprivileged versus a chance for social mobility.


The teacher had a solution,  "Your job as students who are receiving an education is to be aware of your privilege and use your 'education' to do your best to achieve great things, all the while advocating for those in the rows behind you."


So what is the lesson and solution for home business network marketers?

First, imagine a typical classroom setting with 3 rows - front, middle and back. But the seats are filled with network marketers

The front row has the greatest access, experience, authority  and success to start - color them red.

The middle row has more chances for success - a kind of middle class syndrome with skills and mentors. Color them blue.

The back row has the least privilege - more obstacles, less technical or business skills. Color them orange.

They are all aiming at a bin in the front called Home Business Success using massive Internet trends - financial freedom matters to all.

Where is the fairness in this kind of set-up?  How can we make it more fair and democratic?


All we have to do is rearrange the rows from a multi-level, linear arrangement into a large semi-circle radiating around the Home Business bin!  There is now a composite of colors - red, blue and orange with equal spacing.

Now everybody has equal access to have a successful shot. In fact, let's call the classroom the Internet Age where Technology has leveled the playing field in a consumer economy which opens connections with every person, every race, belief and culture as worldwide internet citizens. 


However, there is one missing ingredient - we know what to aim for, but what can we use to gain access? Certainly not paper balls. Hopefully not heavy-duty, challenging training programs based on self-branding, traffic exchanges and lists of virtual strangers.   

The solution or "successful  shot" is a generic home business resource that is simple to read, share, and discuss what a Motherlode map looks like. If the Big Picture is agreeable, the last step is to checkout a compatible network marketing company and let the top marketers with expert education tell the business story. 

Why not adapt the teacher's classroom solution by changing the word students to networkers:  "Your job as networkers is ... to be aware of your particular privilege and use it … to advocate for those in the rows behind you"…. now sitting side by side.

We are looking for early adapters who believe in social mobility for the underprivileged in pursuit of the same home business success goals. No more distraction, disenfranchisement, or elitism in straight rows but a radial spirit of integrity and respect of abilities.
