Network Marketing: MLM Strategies for Success and Wealth Creation
Author’s Note
I like to take a no-holds-barred approach to business. That means when I
see an opportunity, and decide it offers a low risk and high payoff
potential, I jump in. I’ve been burned a few times in my over-zealousness,
but an occasional failure is part of the game. Over the years I’ve learned
you either play the game, and accept the risks (it helps to understand the
risks going in), or you don’t play. In my opinion, life is too short to waste
time on the sidelines. I rode the bench in high school football and hated
every minute of it. The publication you now hold is an expression of my
“play the game” business philosophy. Be a player, not a spectator.
I hold a masters degree in business administration, and have worked in
public and private industry for over 25 years. Don’t let that throw you off
your game plan. Most of what I’ve learned about business I learned on the
streets, playing the game, getting knocked down a few times, and getting
back up in time for the next play. During the past 12 years I have built and
managed several successful companies using a technique of (1) educating
myself about a business opportunity, (2) diving in and learning from
hands-on experience, and (3) using this knowledge and new fund
experience to gain insight into how to play the game better, and how to
adapt my behavior to find either a profit in the business, or minimize my
Throughout the trials and joys of business ownership, I have learned there
is one constant in life: nothing stays the same. Change is everywhere. Be
flexible. Treat every circumstance as a learning opportunity, and never rest
on yesterday’s successes; for tomorrow is another day.
In the end, don’t let the words “he/she had the potential to achieve great
things” be a part of your epitaph. The words “had” and “potential” are
clues to a life full of promise never realized. Woody Allen once said,
“eighty percent of success is showing up.” You have to show up. You
have to be willing to take the plunge. You have to do the things other
people refuse to do. You have to persevere in the face of adversity. And,
you have to believe in yourself, no matter what others may say and think
about you. Fortunately, through the sheer beauty of the network marketing
concept, you can take this plunge into the business world with minimal
financial risk.
