I’m reading the stories of some of the people (granted, all of them in the USA currently mainly because Xocai is still quite new to Australia) that are making a success in some capacity of this Xocai opportunity.
This following story caught my eye for many reasons: she dislikes chocolate, had tried network marketing before and had many reasons to never ever do it again, and was running a successful business already (in real estate).
Some of the highlights that I liked:
- …Along the way there were lots of reasons for me to stop, but I didn’t !
- …I was working two full time jobs. The irony… was my chocolate business was subsiding my now real estate “hobby”.
- …My real estate fees, dues, marketing etc. were averaging close to $1,500 per month
The last one above is a reality that I’m currently facing… the joy of growing a traditional business is that you grow it and the costs grow too. In order to make my first income into a residual passive income, it will need a lot of monetary investment still before it can reach that point. The huge difference is that I pay out the invoices my sub-contractors (those “under me” so even my own “traditional” business is very similar) submit… and I am left feeling like they won and I didn’t as such. Yes, I ultimately keep all the profits however those profits are becoming eaten up thru marketing and other expenses associated with trying to build the business.
