First, I would like to say that I am not insulting the companies that use Multi-level marketing. The article intends to young people in Myanmar. MLM is one of the leading marketing strategy in the world. Many people in the world are working in Multi-Level Marketing. In Myanmar too, I am seeing that many are interesting and working in it. The following are the reasons why young people shouldn’t work in MLM.
You are young
If you are under 35, you still have enough energy to work physically and mentally. I don’t mean that MLM don’t need energy to work. But I mean is that if you are getting old or having not much energy to attend office daily, you can start MLM. But if you are under 35 and having enough energy to work, to walk, to travel and to attend office daily, you better jobs except MLM things.
You have knowledge
Here I also don’t mean that those who are working on MLM don’t have knowledge. I mean is that people only need to good in speaking, attracting and influencing people for selling product. It is not a creative thing. All people need is just to speak. For it, not much knowledge is needed. If you are engineer, you can think of new product depending on your engineering knowledge. If you are a programmer, you can think of new software or coding. If you are a business professional, you can think of new strategy for your product. But for MLM, all you need is to sell the product by influencing people. As you are using your idea and knowledge and raising it, you are always active.
No one in Myanmar became a millionaire by MLM
Everyone said that there are many people who became millionaire nd billionaire due to MLM jobs. For me I don’t believe. May be that I don’t see in my environment around. Here I would like to say sorry to those who already get cars, houses, and billions, millions of dollars in Myanmar.
Products are expensive
It’s not a joke. It is sure that products are expensive. For working on it, you need to invest lots of money. First, you need to buy it. If you cannot sell it out, you lost your money on product you bought. And one more thing is that expensive medical and other products doesn’t help Myanmar people. They exploit Myanmar people honestly. The product came from industry are not expensive. But after passing many level in marketing pyramid, the product got too much expensive. Only rich people can buy and use it. But as MLM people are very good in seducing people, poor people also started buying without thinking too much. Many people living in undevelped area of the country are lack of knowlege. Finally their life doesn’t change much.
Myanmar needs young people lead the country
This is what I want to say exactly. As you see that Myanmar is taking very, very slow in developing. It is not only because of government but also because of young people are not participating in developing. Yong people need to take lots of responsibility in developing country. Young people of today are leaders of the country in the future. It’s not too long to get to the future. It is only 10 more years ahead. Unless you are taking role and responsibility in each kind of your career and jobs, and if you are selling beauty products, health products and so on, neither you and the country will not get developed.
