Why Do People Find It Difficult To Work For Themselves In Nigeria?

(Mushin, Lagos, Nigeria)
I was ignorant about MLM marketing. If I had known it since five years back, I should have become somebody in Nigeria.
I got to know it by mistake, just by getting flyer from a stranger whom I later knew was my upline.
My question is, why is it that people you are inviting to join MLM in Nigeria are always afraid to join?
Why is it so difficult that somebody who is earning a little naira that cannot keep him till month end will continue to labour and hope in vain and later die in pension queue at old age?
Some people will win accounts for their company which may bring over ten million naira, but for them to work for themselves as MLM marketer is so difficult for them.

I am glad you observed that the majority of people resident in Nigeria prefer to stay with a low paying job instead of starting a network marketing business with potential to earn big income.
Let me quickly use this opportunity to correct a common misconception.
It's not just Nigerians or residents of Nigeria that prefer being a paid employee to being an independent business person.
Everywhere you look in the world, you will find people who are intelligent, smart, and industrious and who close high value deals worth millions, even billions, for their organizations but who have no desire to be an entrepreneur.
What's responsible for this?
There are at least two reasons.
First, it is easier to be an employee than to be a business person . . . the employer.
Second, business is risky. There is no guarantee that your business will be successful. And if your business fails, you and your family suffer financial loss which is often disastrous.
Consequently, most people to take the easy route. And that means being an employee all their lives.
Believe me, being an employee has some advantages.
When you're an employee of a solid company, you have . . . Job security
A stable salary you can bank on month after month
Consistency of income and
High social status, if you work for a respected company
When you have consistency of income, you can make long-term and short-term plans with confidence because you will always receive your salary month after month and you know what that salary is.
Nevertheless, being an employee also has disadvantages. And the disadvantages include:
Risk of loss of employment especially with the global economic crisis
Fixed income, with perhaps 5-10 percent increase in income annually
Loss of control of your time (and life) to your employer
Risk of being stuck with a boss you hate or that passionately hates you and makes your life unbearable
Risk of being stuck with a job you hate
Risk of emotional disorder because of all the conflicting work related emotions driving you crazy
Risk of losing your family because you're married to your job for fear of displeasing your boss and losing your job
Lack of self fulfillment and self actualization
When you have a paid job, you have a stable life because of your stable income. But, depending on the organization you work and they job you do in the organization, you risk living a luxurious but less than fulfilling life.
Starting a business, a network marketing business or any kind of business, also has its advantages and disadvantages.
The advantages include:
Potential for unlimited income
Quality time for yourself and your family
Freedom . . . the freedom to do anything any time you wish to
Self fulfillment and self actually
When you're a business person, you're in-charge of your life. You're as free as a bird.
I love the freedom business brings!
Sure, that is why I left my paid job to become a businessman.
However, being a business person brings some very unique challenges that employees do not face.
Yes, being a business owner comes with some challenges or disadvantages.
The disadvantages include:
Risk of failure
Risk of loss of your personal and family income
Risk of bankruptcy and
The risk of facing the emotional turmoil associated with failing
As an individual, you have a choice: You can choose to be an employee all your life and then retire to die after you've been thoroughly used by the company you worked for or you can choose to be in control of your life by becoming a business person.
Start with paid employment so you can gain maturity and experience. Working for awhile also gives you the opportunity to generate the capital you need to establish your business.
Next, start a network marketing business while still in paid employment. This helps you generate extra cash for your family while also helping you grow your earnings outside of your employment.
When your business earnings get to such a level as to support your family, it's up to you to retire and pursue your dream full-time.
What if you don't have paid employment after years of searching?
Well, it's time to take your destiny into your own hands and become a network marketer.
You have absolutely nothing to lose.

P.S: Not everyone will agree to take charge of their lives and become independent business people. Well, it's their loss NOT mine. However, if you're someone who really want to be in-charge of his life, someone who wants to lead NOT to follow, then you should take action RIGHT NOW.
