Why Home Parties and Hotel Meetings Are Becoming Obsolete in Today’s Network Marketing World - Catherine Ann Clayton

Why Home Parties and Hotel Meetings Are Becoming Obsolete in Today’s Network Marketing World

I’m not here to knock these old strategies or be unnecessarily critical; I’m just making a rational argument for moving into the future today with a different way of thinking. 

Today, I’m going to share some information that I got from my friend and mentor Ferny Ceballos about the new way to grow your network marketing business. 

The truth is I almost quit network marketing because I was dealing with people that were just dabbling in the space and not treating it like a business until I found a new method to find quality leads.

It works for ANY business but is designed especially to help network marketers move into the 21st century and create more time-freedom and leverage (…on top of the benefits already provided by success in network marketing).

Here's my story.

I have been in network marketing for over 20 years and Have been relatively successful.  When I decided to start a family, we had some difficulties, not to mention my husband had moved us to the northeast where I had no warm market at all.  Trying to have the family took over our lives and  my network marketing business in Texas died a slow death. 

Fast forward 5 years and we are back in Texas with 1 child and one on the way. Life was good.  My husband had a job, I was going to stay home and raise my kids and we had a contract on a new house.  

Sounds great right.


Literally 3 days after we landed, my husband's company that had moved us back to Texas laid him off.  

He went into a bad place and seemed to think the "package" i. e., money, he was given, could sustain us.  


I stepped up and got a corporate job and quickly advanced to a 6-figure income but i was not able to truly be happy. 

I realized quickly I was missing my kids, my husband and time with other family and friends.  I was tired all the time and super grumpy and no amount of money could make me happy. 

To put it bluntly, I was missing my life MY LIFE.

After 8 years of red tape, seeing my kids grow up without me and being ridiculously exhausted I walked away. 

That's where the rubber met the road and I found Attraction Marketing. 

Not to say that people doing it a different way are bad

Absolutely not. 

The fact that home parties and hotel meeting still work for some people have nothing to do with me or the people that Ferny trains with Attraction Marketing. 

My tribe doesn’t want to build that way.

I focus on attracting people who are fed up with the old way of doing things and want to build online. 

Or sometimes they want to augment the things they’re already doing, because they want to create more leverage.

I have people 

Top earners, especially those under 35, approach me every day by Messenger, phone call, or email and say…

“I’m sick of old school! Can we talk?”

Their message is clear.

And sure, some are over 35, but especially the younger top earners, who put in the effort & reaping the income rewards with home meetings and hotel meetings, are maxed out with their time!

So even if they’re doing multiple-six figures, they have no time freedom!

because they have TOO MANY meetings.

They’re sick of it.

They’re trying to find better ways to leverage their time. They want to spend more time at home with their families while still building their businesses.  

I know I did and that’s who I want to attract.

So, are home meetings and hotel meetings dead?

Well they’re dead for the people who know there’s a better way!

People who find the old way of building intolerable, are looking for a different way.

So, it's not old-school versus new-school

It’s about giving people the opportunity to discover new skills that are going to be valuable to them in the future.  

And with these new skills progress forward. 

That’s why I want people to learn about attraction marketing and learn ways of building their business through social media and online marketing.

Attraction marketing empowers them with skills that they can take anywhere with any business they want.

All of us going started in Network marketing because it was a means to an end.

We had a dream of some other kind of venture that could be funded by what we’re doing here in network marketing.

It’s not going to be possible unless you learn online marketing and advertising skills!

So if you’re ready to get started, you can learn more about online recruiting with this FREE 10-day online recruiting course, where Ferny will  teach the entire system for building your business online that I use.  

I am not talking about changing the fundamental skills of network marketing, I'm talking about changing the MEDIUM you use to communicate, so you can become more efficient and effective.

Ferny teaches these strategies in an honest and direct way.

So if you like doing home parties or whatever, that’s awesome – keep doing them. You are not what I am looking for. 

But at some point, you’ll find that you and your team won’t want to spend time away from your families.

Trust me that the younger generations are not going to build old school.

They are far too involved in technology.

I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit. I taught school for 21 years during which time I started my family late in life. I left education for the corporate world where I started climbing the corporate ladder rather quickly. Soon I realized I was making my boss look "great" while I was doing all the work and losing time with my family because of the long hours. I jumped ship and began my own company so that I could work from home and get time back. Soon I realized I needed multiple sources of income to sustain my lifestyle. I was introduced to direct selling from a friend of mine. I now inspire and collaborate with others to grow their direct selling businesses and enjoy life on their terms while continuing growing my own.
