Be The Boss Network appears to be a lead generation website for the multilevel marketing industry. Because Be The Boss Network doesn’t cost anything to join, I won’t call it a scam. However, Be The Boss Network can easily cause you to be scammed by one of the companies listed in their network. If you join Be The Boss Network, it’s highly probably an MLM associate will attempt to recruit you.

What is Be The Boss Network?
Be The Boss Network is misleading. It’s a clever website that claims to match “opportunity seekers” with so-called money making opportunities. These so-called opportunities are in Multilevel Marketing (MLM). It doesn’t cost anything to join Be The Boss Network, but it does require your name and email.
Apparently, Be The Boss Network is actually a lead generation website. It collects contact information on people who join, then presumably sells this information to MLM associates.
I have issues with MLM. I also have issues with people who are seeking opportunities.
First, I’ll flashback to my experiences with MLM. Then, I’ll explain why you absolutely do not want to be an opportunity seeker.
The Heart of Multilevel Marketing.
At its foundation, an MLM company is modeled on a Ponzi Scheme, otherwise known as a pyramid scheme. In a pure pyramid scheme, there is no real product, people simply pay to join. The money they pay to join is the only revenue. There is nothing of value. Why would people join if there is nothing of value? They join because they have been sold a dream of financial independence.
Here’s what happens when you are sold a dream of financial independence. The dream triggers your emotion of greed. Greed is a very powerful emotion. Once greed is triggered, your brain shuts down. You may as well have a lobotomy. It’s impossible for you to think clearly.
That’s how scammers get you. They trigger your greed and you hand them your money.
Meanwhile, back at the pyramid scheme…
For the people at the top, a pyramid scheme is a fantastic way to make a lot of money fast. However, the people at the bottom get screwed, blued and tattooed. Because nothing of value is created or sold, pyramid schemes are illegal.
Another way to look at a pyramid scheme is to think of it as a funnel that funnels the money out of the pockets of the people on the bottom and concentrates it in the pockets of the people at the top.
A charismatic personality can use a pyramid scheme to practically vacuum money out of people’s pockets. I have known people to mortgage their homes to join such schemes. They got their greed buttons pushed and their pockets cleaned out.
Birth of the MLM.
Because a pyramid scheme is so profitable, companies want to take advantage of it. The problem is it’s against the law. So MLMs were born. A multilevel marketing company closely resembles a pyramid scheme but it’s inside the law just enough to keep from getting shut down.
MLM companies do have products, but they still rely heavily on recruiting people. They recruit people by selling the dream. In other words, they trigger the greed emotion in recruits who then sign up for the “opportunity” believing it leads to financial independence. It doesn’t.
I can’t be sure every MLM is evil incarnate. However, I am absolutely sure that if they are selling the dream, they are trying to force you to make an emotional decision instead of a smart decision.
When I was an “opportunity seeker.”
I tried multilevel marketing with four different companies over the years and every time it cost me far more than I earned. It cost me a lot of time and energy too, and it caused me to lose friends.
During my time in MLM, I noticed that the people who succeeded with it were often charismatic and could easily sell the dream, you know, trigger people’s greed. Because many of these charismatic people later revealed sociopathic behavior, I have grown suspicious of charismatic people in general.
By sociopathic behavior, I mean talking people into buying $5,000 worth of product and maxing out their credit cards, then never helping them learn the business. In MLM, there is a saying, “Find them, wind them and see who runs.” Another saying in MLM is “Throw enough mud on the wall and some will stick.”
No one talked about helping people built a legitimate business.
Many of the high rollers managed large organizations before they entered MLM. They had a captive pool of recruits that immediately launched them into the higher echelons of the sales force. These high rollers never actually had to slog through the trenches to recruit people. One of the high rollers I got to know was a former state Secretary of Education. People joined under her in exchange for political favors.
Here’s a dirty little secret about MLM. Your upline wants you to fail. He wants you to buy a ton of product so he makes a quick commission and he wants you to recruit people so his organization grows, then he wants you to quit so the people you recruited roll up to him.
Most people will only try to recruit their family and friends. Once they’ve gone through the people they know, they’re done. They drop out. Recruiting people is tough. Recruiting strangers is almost impossible unless you can sell the dream.
MLM works on recruitment. If you can’t recruit people, if you can’t sell the dream and trigger other people’s greed, you will only annoy your family and friends and waste your money and time. On the other hand, if you don’t have a conscious and you’re an Olympic level BS artist, you could do very well.
If you’re going to be hardheaded about this…
I hope I’ve discouraged you from getting involved in MLM. If I haven’t, and you still want to check it out, I recommend you go to the Direct Sales Association website and only consider the companies that are members there. DSA members are supposed to adhere to a code of ethics. You’ll find the Direct Sales Association at dsa.org
Why you don’t want to be an opportunity seeker.
You want to make money. You want to kick your boss to the curb. You want to enjoy things you can’t afford. The money squeeze is squeezing you to death. Baby needs new shoes. I get it.
But please accept the reality that there is no such thing as a magic make-money button or special make money software. No one is going teach you a paint-by-numbers way to make money from home because there is no such a thing.
As long as you believe in the fairy tale of buying an opportunity, you will be an “opportunity seeker.” You will chase one so-called opportunity after another. You’ll spend money instead of making it and you’ll be vulnerable to every scam that comes along.
Don’t pay for an opportunity to make money. Opportunities to make money are everywhere. You don’t lack opportunity, you lack the vision to see opportunity and you lack the skills to profit from them. I had the same problem before I stumbled on a community that teaches people how to build a real, honest to goodness business.
I want to invite you to join our community. It’s free to get started. However, I first ask that you read an article I wrote about How to Really Make Money Online and Never Get Scammed.
Once you read my article, you’ll see scams coming from a mile away. You’ll be scam proof. You’ll also have a better understanding of what it takes to make the kind of money that will change your life.
All the best…
