This is a bare bones novel which is a 'how-to' for developing or remembering the heart and guts it takes to succeed in network marketing.
Network marketing is a much maligned industry because it's dominated by dishonesty, heavy sales and glorification of financial wealth.
But it's also a very viable income stream which can buy back the time a person spends in their day job - you don't have to be making $5 million a year to succeed, only maybe $40,000 a year. Being rich can mean having the time and energy to spend with your family on the income you have now.
We follow Sally McAllister through her network marketing journey - from wanting to quit, through to realising some of her dreams (none of which involve private jets). She navigates all the things that make most people want to give up - lack of time, lack of money, negative spouse, being gossiped about, people misunderstanding what she's doing, self doubt and many more.
The book shows her using resources (books, audios, one on one coaching), and what happens for and to her as she grows and changes applying what she learns.
She is honest and hard working. And normal!
The book is designed to show that successful people have the same obstacles as all of us - it's how they handle them that makes the difference.
There are 2 main characters in the book - Sally and her mentor Brenda Milton.
My target audience is people that have started their network marketing business and are feeling like the things that seem to be going wrong are reasons to quit. I guess my specific demographic is just like my main character -late 30's woman, young kids, trapped in job she hates, no time, no money, no dreams left, no faith in herself, believing successful people had lucky breaks. She is gritty, determined, a bit hot headed, smart, willing to learn, scared and brave. Think Erin Brockovich in normal office worker clothes, with an education, a husband and a lot more self doubt.
