I began my network marketing career in 1994 … yes, 26 years ago. I spent 3.5 years in a company learning so much about how this business model works. I learned from some incredible mentors, watching everything they did. Even though I didn’t make more than $1,100 in my biggest month, the knowledge I gained was worth millions to me later. Then I got into TPN (The People’s Network) which was all about personal development. We sold satellite TV dishes so people could watch Les Brown, Brian Tracy, Og Mandino, Darren Hardy, Jim Rohn and others, instead of Jerry Springer and Days of Our Lives. That company transformed me. Then a year later I was introduced to my current company, and I’ve been here for 21 years. I used all that I learned and we built a massive business. And I mean massive. My team has been paid over $490 Million — SO FAR!
Over these past 26 years, I have seen a lot of companies come and go. Some get hot for a few months or years, but then they either settle in and learn how to be sustainable, or they go away. I have also seen many distributors come and go. Some make no money and quit by disappointment. Others make a bunch of money but their ego gets the best of them and they implode. Some become amazing people who realize this is much bigger than them and accept the role of “exampleship” and mentor, and they continue to lead the way serving others. The truth is, the network marketing industry as a business model is becoming more and more necessary in the evolving economy and society — not only to the companies looking to bring their products and services to the marketplace, but also to the people who want to employ leverage and develop residual income that will buy them freedom.
So you are in the right industry if you’re currently a network marketer. You now have to evolve with the rest of the world, in other words, move with the cheese. The basic principles of how we build this business will remain constant, but we have seen many evolutions of HOW we go about creating team culture, attracting prospects, and leading people. The good news is I am IN THE TRENCHES building, doing the activities, every day. I am also in communication with hundreds of the top leaders in many companies all around the world. So I have valuable insights that I am able to bring to you. Years ago, I decided to not just help members of my own team, but to extend that mentorship as a “FOSTER MENTOR” to others outside of my tribe. I now have thousands of amazing people whose journey I help guide.
A year ago, I created a special way to access my third-party tools for recruiting, social media branding and lead generation content, and ongoing training and mentoring. Let me remind you, I spent 26 years in pursuit of mastery in this industry. I didn’t just earn $20M+, I spent hundreds of thousands of dollars over those years GETTING the knowledge. I fly to seminars to sit at the feet of giants to take the notes. I listened to the countless programs and read the books. Most importantly, I put in more than 30,000 hours DOING THE BUSINESS. This is why when I ask people to pay $20 a month to be a part of the EBPro (Empire Builders Pro) membership, I know the value is 1000X what they pay for. For the price of one movie a month, people get access to everything I am doing to help each person hit their goals and become successful.
YOU HAVE to make the decision to invest in yourself and your business if you ever expect to make it. There is no way around it. If you live by a mindset of holding tight to the few dollars you have, your hands are not open to receive far bigger amounts. Do you have to have me as a mentor and running with you by your side on this journey? Of course not, but I assure you I can help you go farther, faster, than without me. It will be worth far more than $20 a month. So if you are not aware of what all comes with EBPro, even without looking into it, you might want to just decide YES right now. OK, now that you get it, go to www.EmpireBuildersPro.com and get in.
I promise you — as the industry evolves, so will I, and therefore I assure you that we will zig and zag together to keep moving forward to success. Trust in that I am a great ally to be aligned with. I will always have your back.
