Why You Shouldn't Join More Than One MLM...

Published on 5/24/2019

I have been in the MLM/Network Marketing Arena for well over three decades now. Along this journey I have partnered with a few companies along the way, forging wonderful relationships with people from all stations in life. 

These relationships have a sort of snowball effect, because you will eventually become associated within their sphere of influences causing your circle of friends and associates to become ever larger over the years...growing your network of contacts and business offers exponentially. 

Six degrees of separation is the idea that all people are six, or fewer, social connections away from each other. As a result, a chain of "a friend of a friend" statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps. It's argued now that because of social media etc that there are fewer steps...but you get the picture.


My Point? If your inboxes are anything like mine across your social media platforms you'll know what I'm about to reveal. 

How many times during the course of your day do you get pitched on the next greatest and best product service or deal ever...with all the shiny bells and whistles.... -or- Could you do me a favor, I value your opinion etc. Sound familiar?

 Which brings me to what we call...

Shiny Object Syndrome (SOS) is a degree of distraction, and it affects entrepreneurs specifically because of the qualities that make them unique. It's called shiny object syndrome because it's the entrepreneurial equivalent of a small child chasing after shiny objects...and if it’s plaguing you, you’ll need to take action if you want your business to thrive.

Now I'm aware that some will disagree with me here, because it's "All about Multiple Streams of Income" Right?!

At its core, shiny object syndrome (SOS) is a disease of distraction, and it affects entrepreneurs specifically, because of the qualities that make them unique. Entrepreneurs tend to be highly motivated. They crave new technology and new developments. And they aren’t afraid to start new projects and create new things.

Ordinarily, these are great characteristics, but when SOS sets in, it forces you to chase project after project, and change after change, never settling with one option. 

Wanting to keep your business updated, and staying abreast of new possibilities, aren’t inherently bad goals. However, when SOS becomes rampant, entrepreneurs experience some or all of these serious drawbacks...

  • Inability to finish projects
  • Poorly planning your ideas and directives
  • Burning through cash
  • Confusing your associates

The Good News? SOS isn’t a diagnosable affliction. It’s a problem with how you think about your business, and how you choose to develop it. Accordingly, once you realize you have these tendencies, you can start to correct them and compensate for them, ultimately forging a more consistent, reliable path forward for your business.

Five Reasons Why You Shouldn't Join More Than One MLM

1) It makes you look unsuccessful...

If one of your prospects knows that you are involved in three or four MLM businesses then they will probably be curious as to why.

After all, if you were successful, why would you need to be involved in so many opportunities? Right?

Being involved in too many MLM businesses could give the appearance that you are not very good at it, or that you are incapable of generating revenue with just one opportunity. In other words, it makes you look like a flake that cannot be trusted.

2) It divides your passion and time...

Running a successful MLM business takes a lot of passion and time.

If yours is divided over three or four businesses then how can you expect to dedicate the time and passion it takes for each one to be a success?

The more likely scenario is that you do not have the time or passion to give to each business, which will probably cause them all to fail.

3) You definitely could lose prospects by sending mixed signals...

If you have a potential prospect that is interested in an opportunity and you try to push them into something else, you could lose them. No matter how innocent it may seem!

When running multiple MLM businesses it is very difficult not to have a favorite, but perhaps your favorite does not appeal to one of your prospects.

You will be sending mixed signals that could cause you to lose prospects and possibly trust.

4) Your downline will do the same to you...

If you are working at three different companies then what is to stop your downline from doing the same?

You want people in your downline that are motivated and focused on your business, but you can hardly blame them for seeking out multiple opportunities if you are doing the same thing too.

By showing dedication to one business your downline will see that you are loyal and will, in turn, show more loyalty to you.

5) You will appear disloyal to your upline...

Just as you can send the wrong message to your downline, you can also send the wrong message to your upline.

The people “above” you in your MLM business will probably not be too happy when they find out that you are dividing your time and focus between multiple opportunities.

In order for your upline to know you are loyal, you should concentrate on one opportunity.

In closing…

Joining more than one MLM opportunity at the same time is simply a bad idea. It will not only divide your time and passion but could send the wrong message to your downline, prospects and upline.

Again, this is just my opinion here! If you're able to successfully juggle multiple companies then by all means Keep on Keeping on...

TIP for the Rookie: Do Not send friend request out to people with the sole purpose of pitching them on your opportunity. Not only is this tacky, but it's extremely unprofessional. Build a friendship above ALL else FIRST.
