For 70 years hundreds of millions of people around the world have been lied to, manipulated, hyped, pressured, and even shamed into joining a Network Marketing company.  

This has created resentment, distrust, confusion and skepticism towards our profession. The time has come for us to look in the mirror and take responsibility.

It starts with understanding that building a business with honor and genuine intentions is possible. In this week's video blog I talk about what it means to be an Authentic Networker.

Check it out:

  

 

Over and Out,
Richard

 

P.S. I'd love to hear your feedback about how you feel we are doing as Network Marketers in the profession. Are we doing better or are we failing at improving the perception of Network Marketing? Comment below and let me know.


P.S.S. I wrote a book called The Four Year Career®. This isn't just any other book. It was designed to be the perfect tool to use for recruiting. You can actually make connecting with prospects easier and more fun just by using this tool. Check out this free training class I did on how to use the book to grow your business: <<WATCH HERE>>

The Four Year Career is an idea that is gaining in popularity. Hundreds of thousands of people a week are joining a Direct Sales opportunity, not because they particularly know about The Four Year Career, but because Network Marketing offers core values that need to be met

1. People need and want to connect. They want to make friends and have great experiences, whether those are travel, adventure, accomplishment, contribution or success. Life is made of these memories. Just ask anyone to quantify their life when they don’t have any left.

2. People want to learn. Whether it is new skills, distinctions or wisdom, people want to know more about the world. Increasingly what we think we know is turning out to be not so. We are all looking for more light in a sometimes dark world.

 3. People want more freedom and abundance, and I am not talking about getting rich quick or a level of obscene abundance. We just want to make progress financially … paying off debt vs. going deeper and transferring hope (quiet desperation) into “probability thinking.” We want to visualize and actualize a safer, freer and more joyous future.

The Four Year Career is simply employing two simple laws of commerce and mathematics to create more of the above in one's life.

1. In the 1940’s, California Vitamins, a Direct Sales company expressed an epiphany by changing the rules about who could build a sales team … who could be a team leader and when. Instead of having to prove ones-self first, they decided that every new sales rep could build a team and they could start building it immediately. No longer did someone have to become a great sales rep and jump through a bunch of management hoops before they could build a team and earn on the efforts of others. This created a new Law of Commerce in the form of Multilevel Marketing.

2. Multilevel Marketing being born ushered in the mathematical law ofcompounding, or geometric progressions into the potential growth of a sales force. This created an income path and wealth building opportunity that makes The40 Year Career look archaic in comparison.

The best way to describe the difference Multilevel Marketing can make in a commerce project is to look at the goal of selling $1 Million a month of any product. In traditional sales, a company might look to hire 100 superstar salespeople with territories, etc. The most important component would be a monthly quota of $10,000.

Multilevel Marketing just flips the numbers. 

10,000 raving fans of a product x $100 a month in sales.

Here are the Four Cornerstones as laid out in The Four Year Career book.

1.  The People. How do you “recruit” 10,000 people? Simple. Rules 1 and 2 from above …  enroll 4, who each enroll 4, who each enroll 4, who each enroll 4, etc. You-4-16-64-256-1024-4096 etc.

2.   The Sales. Only raving fans of the product need apply and in fact, they are the only ones that do. $100-$200 a month in sales, per fan, is natural and organic. Much of those “sales” may just be the Fans themselves using the product.

3.   The Income. Direct Sales and Multilevel Marketing companies pay about 40% of their revenues to the “Fans” to motivate them to build the team. This is the ugly secret that few in our profession are willing to acknowledge, let alone fight for. We generate sales not from teaching our Fans to be superstar salespeople but by motivating them to build a sales team. We believe in the Law of Getty … J. Paul Getty.   “I would rather earn 1% on the efforts of 100 than 100% on the efforts of 1.”

10,000 People x $200 a month in Sales x 5% = $10,000 a month in Residual Income. 

4.   The Asset Value. In the right company, with the right products, your income can become Residual at some point. This usually occurs when your team exceeds 400-500 active Fans. What YOU do from that point on in terms of sales and recruiting may have little impact on your income. Your team and their own leadership takes over. If you are earning $5,000 a month in Residual Income, your distributorship has an Asset Value of $1,000,000 … not that you could sell it for that but that it would require that much real estate equity or equivalent assets to produce $5,000 in residual income. You now have true wealth, and with that comes Freedom and Security.

The book, The Four Year Career dives deep into the business model of how people all over the world representing hundreds of Multilevel companies are building this model on a part-time basis in Four Years. The Four Year Career book is the fastest growing generic tool in our profession. Distributors study it to learn the model. They give it to new distributors to learn to believe in the model, and the fastest growing use is as an actual prospecting tool for those looking at the possibility of getting involved. 

Here are what just a few of its tens of thousands of fans have to say about the book:

“Richard, I’m loving your book! Thanks for the copy, great stuff!”

-B.K. Boreyko – Owner of Veema, Top 50 Network Marketing Company

“Jam-packed with compelling facts and stories, The Four Year Career is a no BS, tell-it-like-it-is powerhouse of a book. Read this, and you’ll be more confident than ever in the future of your Network Marketing business. Share this with the skeptics in your life, and they’ll FINALLY appreciate why you’ve chosen this profession (and more will be joining you too).”

-Sonia Stringer – The Number One Female Network Marketing Coach 

“I don’t think there’s a better explanation of how Network Marketing works, AND Richard Brooke’s exploration of “The Asset Value” of a residual income business is nothing short nor shy of utterly Brilliant! A MUST see for every Networker and their prospects!”

-John Fogg – Author of “The Greatest Networker in the World”

On creating a custom edition of The Four Year Career

“We had just under 3,000 members at printing [of his team’s custom edition of The Four Year Career] last year, 11 months ago, and 400 people joining per month. We will break 15,000 members tomorrow, and have close to 2,500 members joining per month now. My group essentially doubles every 3-4 months … we had just over 7,000 five months ago.

When the book launched under a year ago, we were doing about $200k in monthly sales, and this month we will break $1 million for the first time. I’ve sponsored approximately 122 people.

It is insane for anyone to not see the value in [the book]. Looking back when I first started with the project, I was nervous but my income has more than quadrupled in the past year … very good investment for anyone. I sold another 100 tonight at my meeting, and all my business presentations are based on the 4YC and creating a “Four Year Career” with my company!”

-Adam Green – fastest-growing group in 30-year old Network Marketing Company, Young Living

Who's your champion?

Some of you may have heard the term "Accountability Partner." This is a term that describes someone who holds you accountable for certain actions. This could be business related, fitness related, relationship related, etc.

The problem with this term is no one likes to be held accountable.  

That's why I decided to adopt the term "Champion" instead of an accountability partner. To me, this describes the true essence of what we are in need of when it comes to accountability.

In this video, I share how you can find a champion for you ...

  

 

Over and Out,
Richard

 

P.S.  Comment Below!  Do you have a champion? If so, how did you connect with them?

P.S.S.  In this blog we're talking about finding someone who believes in you to help you stay accountable toward your life goals. Why do people need this? Well, it's usually because people do not understand the concept of self-motivation. If this resonates with you, I have something that can help. I wrote a book called "Mach2 With Your Hair On Fire - The Art of Vision & Self-Motivation." This book can help you master your vision and self-motivation. Check it out ...

Our world is replete with freedom. Most of us did not fight for it ... this world of possibilities paid for by people like our ancestors and yesterday's/today's patriots.

Some of these people were presidents. Some of them were leaders rallying for the greater good. 

As network marketers, the quotes in this blog illuminate the path for risk takers, thought leaders and people who aren't afraid to fail.

These are the words of great minds encouraging a better tomorrow:


"Far better is it to dare mighty things, win glorious triumphs. Even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows no victory or defeat."
- T. Roosevelt

"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however, measure or far away."
- Henry David Thoreau

"If ... I have lost every other friend on earth, I shall at least have one friend left, and that friend shall be down inside of me"
- Abraham Lincoln

Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times.
- Plaque on President Reagan’s desk

"I have found the best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it."
- Harry S Truman

“When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”
- Alexander Graham Bell

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity.  An optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
- Winston Churchill

“Restlessness and discontent are the first necessities of progress”
- Thomas A Edison


To Freedom,
Richard

Productivity ... think about it like a camera that needs to be focused, manually.

It should be aimed at the things that you are best at.
It should be focused on actions with the highest value.
It should always capture your 'Single Daily Action.'

The rest of the scene in front of you would be better recorded by someone else ...  a wide angle, low quality, or maybe a drone shot (for a different point of view).

Your productivity depends on your dedication to capturing the most impactful scenes of this film ... your film.

Commit to keep the camera on, always get the money shot.

Watch the video for three, massive productivity ideas.

    Your Network is your Net Worth.

    Appreciate those assets with three, simple steps.
    1. Schedule - like your vision depends on it (because it does!)
    2. Create simple, key performance indicators (KPI's)
    3. Measure in order to manage with my stat tracker:

    How do you tell your story? 

    Your credibility is everything in word of mouth marketing. Believable and effective storytelling builds trust and makes the listener want to hear more. It's commonplace today to lie, but that leads to distrust and misuse of relationship.

    To tell your story, lay a foundation of truth and then build on it with detail.

    Make it interesting, make it encompassing, make it engaging by including the who, what, when, where, and why.

    Finally, make it resonate with your audience. Relate to them and focus on the listener's point of view by stepping into their shoes.

        

       

      Start Today,
      Richard

      By the title, you probably think I'm going to talk about what we need to do to be a champion. But what I'm actually going to talk about is finding a person you're going to want to have on your team that champions you.

      What do I mean by "champions you?"

      Today's video blog will share exactly what I'm referring to, enjoy!

        Today I want to address a question that I receive on what seems to be a weekly basis:

        "Hey Richard, what Network Marketing company do you think I should join?"

        Startup?
        trendsetter?
        trend follower?
        The fastest growing?
        The one that promises to be the biggest?
        The one that cuts me a deal?
        The one with the best comp plan?
        The one everyone I know is joining?
        I ask one question first ...

        How long do you want to get paid?

        How about YOU ask these questions of YOU before joining another opportunity:
            1. Would you use the products forever whether you got paid to promote them or not?
            2. Are the products going to be relevant in the marketplace for as long as you want to get paid?
            3. Who owns the company? Google them down ten pages and find credible reviews. Managment matters but ownership matters the most.  
            4. What is the company’s track record? Promises are nothing but marketing BS. 
            5. What exactly is the culture of the company? Can you describe it? Is it taught? Is it enforced? Do the leaders and owners practice it?
            6. Does the culture match your values
            7. What ARE your values? (most important things to you in life)
            8. Are you motivated to join by hype, promises, fear of missing out or peer pressure? (if so, PASS)

        This morning I did a zoom with a group of top rank leaders that have been with their company between 38 and 48 years. Some of them were second and even third generation distributorship owners, meaning their parents and grandparents built the business.

        How long do YOU want to get paid?

        Suck it Up Buttercup. Do your homework and make a good decision

        Your LIFE depends on it not to mention your reputation, credibility, health, relationships, and credit score.

        Over and out, 
        Richard
