it really doesn't matter a whole lot about when you joined.
You always have things going for you and going against you in the online industry.
For example, if you joined early, you joined at a time when it was new of course, and there
was a lot of skepticism and mis-trust. There wasn't as many ways to earn either. Also, the
level system was not as deep. In addition, if you were or are someone that joined early, you
may discarded it anyway, became inactive...you may have did that because you did not understand
the power of a cent or you may have did that because you were skeptic. Even if you were active
you may not have upgraded, or you may not have promoted when it was wide open spaces.
And even if you did promote, you may have gained a lot of inactives because CS was new and
because there was lack of understanding, etc.
The flip side is, if you joined and promoted, stayed active, did not concern yourself with inactives
and kept promoting, as time went buy, your organization most probable grew and might have
grown into the thousands.
Still, it's easy for me to see the benefits of joining today. Members that say there is no referrals
to get out there, are truly misunderstanding, just like many did 5 years ago. Anyone can look
at the payment proofs posted in the forum and see that many are first time cash outs and can
see member join dates. Now if all these people joined 5 years ago, 4 years ago, 3 years ago,
2 years ago, 1 year ago, 1 day ago....then why won't all those people join tomorrow and the
next day and the next? The answer is, they will. You just got to go get them because they are
certainly out there.
