I get emails daily from customers and clients that have drank the Kool-aide.
Someone they perceive to be a Network Marketing Leader has sold them that they must BUILD THEIR BRAND on social media before they can build their network marketing team. (And oh yes, join this affiliate program so you have something to sell to the 97% of people you talk to that won’t be interested)
This misguided story has not changed much since I wrote the 7 Lies of Attraction Marketing a few years ago.
At the time this book was originally published, everyone was pushing newbies to the various affiliate programs, Google and other paid ad platforms. Today, the internet has been replaced with Social Media.
When new distributors are told to go on YouTube, start a… Continue reading

The longer I am involved in network marketing, the more I am convinced as a business model we make it ten times harder to build a team than it needs to be. Make no mistake about it, I think building a large duplicating organization of people is one of the most challenging undertakings a person can tackle. It is challenging enough, even when you are not continuously shooting yourself in the foot.
The essence of building a team really comes down to this –You are simply looking for the RIGHT PERSON at the RIGHT TIME in THEIR… Continue reading
Why are they so many self-proclaimed MLM gurus on YouTube?Click To Tweet
I like to periodically check in on the number of self-proclaimed network marketing “gurus,” “ninjas,” “masters”, “rock stars” “consultants” and “trainers” listed on YouTube.
Well, it seems like an important metric, an indicator of the real mindset of the distributors within the industry.
How many people are currently trying to teach people to do that which they have never done? IE: Build a large duplicating organization of leaders full of full-time earners.
Honestly, I think this is the number one reason the network marketing industry is NOT leading the charge in the entrepreneurial awakening we are seeing around the world.
I have been an entrepreneur all my life. Over the years I have… Continue reading
The Best Way to become a network marketing authority is to DO IT, then talk about it!Click To Tweet
I have gone from fascination to disturbed at all the “self proclaimed” gurus
who are teaching marketers in multiple niches how to and I quote
“Build a powerful brand, boost influence and gain authority status.”
Would somebody please help me understand?
Yes, I understand that many if not most network marketing gurus got
there not because they actually built duplicating teams of leaders but by
convincing the masses that they were an authority just because they said
Call me naive, but I have to believe when I first started out I was looking
for someone who… Continue reading
It does my heart good to see people putting into action the ideas and methods we share. One of our subscribers sent me this video from one of our customers in my home state of Kentucky.
I have been teaching this simple postcard system for over 20 years, because it works. The name of the game is sorting through people! Amateurs try to convince, professionals sort!
Congratulations Billy on your SUCCESS!
Who does a search on You Tube for Dale Calvert? Other than my mother ..... it is probably someone interested in a home business. Over the next 12 months do you think someone may find Billy's video and contact him about his opportunity?
As most of you know this is what attraction marketers have been teaching people… Continue reading
Yes, I believe that most people do business with those they know, like, and trust, but knowledgeable entrepreneur’s know better!
Yes, I purchase insurance, get my dry cleaning done, eat at some local Mom & Pop Restaurants, have my lawn work done by someone I know like and trust. However when it comes to learning business models or marketing ideas, knowing, liking, and even trusting people is really not something that enters my mind. I believe knowledgeable entrepreneur’s have the ability to separate business and day-to-day living. Joining somebody’s business ONLY because you know them, like them, and trust them really doesn’t make sense.
We are talking about business, we are talking about YOUR financial future!
When it comes to business, knowledgeable… Continue reading
