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.

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 ...

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 ...
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.
Our Vision is to champion, train and coach those companies and sales leaders that build in such a way so as to enhance the reputation of trust, admiration, and respect for our profession.
Over and out,

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?"
A Startup? A trendsetter? A 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:
Would you use the products forever whether you got paid to promote them or not?
Are the products going to be relevant in the marketplace for as long as you want to get paid?
Who owns the company? Google them down ten pages and find credible reviews. Managment matters but ownership matters the most.
What is the company’s track record? Promises are nothing but marketing BS.
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?
Does the culture match your values?
What ARE your values? (most important things to you in life)
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.
