What is MLM exactly?
To me and my family, multi-level marketing (MLM) means we will will never have to worry about not having enough money to pay the bills and feed the dog.
It means true time and financial freedom.
It means I don’t have to toss and turn at night hoping and praying and worrying about life getting in the way of living because we cannot afford to handle what ever comes up – flat tires, increase in gas prices, holiday gifts, college tuition, loss of a job or even a daughter getting married.
Network marketing means we will never answer to a boss again. Ever!
And now it is YOUR turn!
My True Rags to Riches MLM Story
It’s December, 1990…
I’m 29 years old and homeless.
I sleep on a urine-stained mattress I found on the side of the road and tossed into the back of my truck.
If it rains I can’t sleep. I just cry.
Fast Forward to 2013…
Today my wife Lisa and I work together from the comfort of our home. We earn a very comfortable multiple six-figure income, attend church, drive new cars, give to charities, travel when and where we want, and spend lots of time with our two boys.
- Are you ready to make a change?
- Are you serious enough to get past yourself and to get started now?
- Are you ready to dump the excuses, get in… get busy… and take back control of your financial future?
If so, MLM network marketing may just be the answer you have been looking for.
In December 1990, due to a very bad business decision and a number of even worse personal decisions, I lost everything.
My home. Family.
Business. Income. And self-respect.
I went from having it all to literally living out of the back of a truck.
Today my wife Lisa and I work from the comfort of our home. We earn a multiple six-figure income that grows every month.
We use the internet and direct mail to run our business. We drive new cars with personalized plates, give to charities, have money in the bank, travel when and where we want, and spend lots of time with family and friends.
It took 4 years, working part-time, to achieve financial security.
Meaning we now make MORE THAN ENOUGH to pay the bills, feed the dog and have plenty left over to do what we want, when we want… even if we stop working!

It doesn’t matter how things look or where you find yourself right now…
- Not enough time
- Not enough money
- Too much debt
- Too tired to care
- Fearful of making a wrong decision
- Emotionally and spiritually bankrupt
Things can and will change for the better when YOU decide you have had enough. When YOU decide to take back control. When YOU decide you may not know everything, but you know enough to get started now – and building out a profitable MLM network marketing business may just be your ticket to success.
So keep reading because what you are about to discover may surprise, no… SHOCK YOU… to learn just how fast you can make incredible things happen.
It took me 5 years get off the pity-pot after I lost everything.
Oh sure, I held various jobs, bought another house, re-established credit, reunited with my family, read a ton of motivational books, and purchased as many “How to Get Rich Quick” systems as I could get my hands on. But emotionally I was burnt toast.
My drive to strive for more was gone. Still, for appearances, I went through the motions.
I joined Amway and quit after a few months. Then it was on to Excel. Then it was no-money-down real estate. Then day trading. I stuffed envelopes, ran classified ads, invested $5,000 in water filters, bought and placed vending machines, and even lost a small fortune in the 900 number business.
[gss-content-box color=”yellow”]Lesson #1 – There are many people making a quiet fortune in all of these businesses. They are proven business models.
The reason none of them worked for me is I didn’t work any of them. I dabbled. I got organized. I got ready to be ready so when I finally got ready I would be ready.
I was comfortable with the IDEA of success, but uncomfortable taking the actions necessary to make things happen. After all, if I really tried… if I really got serious… I might fail. Again!
And failing is painful. Failing is embarrassing. Failing sucks. Lesson learned. It is better to be safe (doing nothing) than sorry (trying and failing).[/gss-content-box]
Anthony Robbins, in Awaken the Giant Within, says:
…everything we do, we do for a reason. So what is this force that is controlling you even now and will continue to do so for the rest of your life? PAIN and PLEASURE!
Everything you and I do, we do either out of our need to avoid pain or our desire to gain pleasure.
Like you, I have an entrepreneurial spirit so I love to check out proven business opportunities and rub elbows with successful people.
We enjoy the IDEA of securing true time and financial freedom.
But the second I considered getting serious about a project… FEAR OF FAILURE would stop me dead in my tracks.
And FEAR OF SUCCESS!
I was comfortable, though unhappy, being mediocre and the thought of stepping outside of my comfort zone shook me to the core. Been there, done that. And I didn’t like the result.
How MLM Network Marketing Saved My Life
So how did I go from being broke and homeless to getting rich in MLM?
- How did I get past my fear of failure and my fear of success?
I questioned my fears and beliefs hard! And I realized I was mostly afraid of what I thought might happen. False expectations appearing real.
Then I made a decision. A real decision…
[gss-content-box color=”yellow”]I would pick one proven business model and commit to producing a great result – period. No turning back. No second guessing, no distractions… and no more excuses.[/gss-content-box]
I chose mail order. I purchased a $500 system written by Jeff Paul called, “How to Make $4,000 a Day Sitting a Your Kitchen Table in Your Underwear” and read through it one time.
Then I followed the instructions (even when I didn’t feel like it and even when I was scared to death!), and within 18 months I went from earning less than $50,000 a year at my job to earning over $100,000 a year working from home.
That was in 1996.
In 1998, I discovered the internet and we added another $20,000 to $30,000 to the pile. It was great! Having money is MUCH better than not having any. And having the time to enjoy it was even better!
Then life threw me and my family a curve ball…
I’ll never forget the day the doctor walked in, cleared his throat, and said, “There’s a new chemo-like therapy treatment available that has just been approved by the FDA for human testing that may buy you some time… but if it doesn’t work. I’m sorry. You are looking at two years tops.”
Talk about an instant brain change! One minute I’m fighting for top search engine placement, the next minute I’m fighting for my life.
I came to the horrible realization that if I were to die or become unable to work in any way – I would leave my wife and two sons virtually penniless.
Because the majority of our income was totally dependent upon my ability to trade my time, training and expertise for dollars.
My family supported me in the business, but I was the business.
So I did the only thing I could think of to do…
I joined a MLM network marketing program and got busy.
[gss-content-box color=”yellow”]The chemo made me sick and though I felt weak and tired most of the time, I immediately got busy redesigning my business in order to start producing a residual income that WOULD NOT require my presence or expertise once established.
I was scared for myself, scared for my family, and… worse case scenario… I had less than two years to pull a rabbit out of the hat.[/gss-content-box]
Are you running out of time?
Even if you never fall ill or suffer a tragic accident… what about retirement?
So, “When would you like to retire?”
- 3 years
- 5 years
- 10 years
- 20 years
How much money will you need per month to retire comfortably?
What’s your PLAN to create this passive income?
One way to create passive income is to start investing. So let’s assume you find away to average a 6% annual return. How much money will you need to invest?
Simply multiply the amount of money you need to retire by 200. For example, if you need $5,000 per month to retire comfortably: $5,000 x 200 = $1,000,000.
So how close are you to making this happen?
If you are like most people – not too close, right?
Which is exactly why you should seriously consider starting your own home-based business like joining a proven MLM program – right here, right now – and get started ASAP.
New MLM Company Hybrid Makes Money Faster
It has been a little over 14 years now and the doctor’s cannot find any trace of the killer critters anywhere in my system.
So I survived. No, actually – we have thrived!
Because today we have team of over 11,000 active network marketing distributors in one MLM company and a team of over 8,600 in yet another.
The industry has been good to us. Very good.
But if I had to start all over again…
I would NOT join a standard MLM program.
Which sounds weird coming from a guy who has made a quiet fortune learning the art & science of prospecting, recruiting and using the internet for MLM lead generation.
But the reality is, there is a much better… much faster… much easier way to create your fortune today than by embracing the old-school multilevel marketing model.
(Note: This was originally published ONLY for my active team.)
It took me only 22 months to pocket over $667,000 using this new MLM hybrid program.
Which is a HUGE difference.
So no it is decision time because it’s time.
And I’m confident you can and will make incredible things happen when you get in the game.
Passive income saved my life and it can save yours as well. You know it and I know it.
But, chances are, you might have a few hurts, habits and hang ups that have been holding you back so let’s talk about that now…
Bless and be blessed,
