“Open minded ka ba sa business?”
If you’ve ever found yourself wondering about network marketing, our special guest today at the Freelance Blend Podcast could most likely tell you a thing or two. Ktin Gutierrez, The Alpha Girl, is a network marketing maven who left her executive level job in finance to further pursue her career in network marketing.
You can tell by the bubbliness of Ktin’s voice and her cheery disposition that she likes to talk. And it’s probably why she decided to pursue her career of choice—it allows her to interact and touch bases with so many people.
Ktin started out part-time in networking marketing while she was still working as a VP at a bank. Over the course of three years, her part-time income exceeded that of her day job so she decided to quit and do network marketing full-time. She has not looked back since.
I’ve always wondered though, what exactly is network marketing?
According to Ktin, network marketing replaces the different layers of marketing a product by directly transacting with potential customers, thus eliminating advertisements—but it’s no get rich quick scheme. Ktin says her success is mostly from a combination of maintaining a good mindset coupled with strategy.
