OneCoin.com – Another Scam We Warned You About

I just updated the description a few moments ago on my OneCoin.com video; when news broke a few years back that the founder was arrested.  Looks like it took them a few to finally charge them all. This is how it goes, with scams. Just as we warned you about Bitconnect, and how it would end like Zeek Rewards – we were right about OneCoin.  We were right about Kannaway as well. Notice you never hear anything about that company, that was simply trying to ‘capitalize’ on ignorance. Overpriced ‘products’ are always going to be challenging for people to sell, through the MLM model.

Check out this Old Content, with a Timeless Message – from when OneCoin.com ‘first’ started to go down.

“Might” work on a nice screen cap for this OneCoin.com video as well. There is always ‘quite a bit to do’ when you’re going at this ‘the right way’. By that, I mean avoiding all the automation that is making MLM suck again. That ‘personal touch’ will never get old, in this line of work.

Personally, people didn’t appreciate this video, and I felt it.

They let me know, that they didn’t like my “told you so” attitude, in one way or another.  It’s fine – as I stated in a post on facebook, those aren’t the type of folks I can lead…

Quick ‘text’ from that facebook rant, on people falling out with me, over OneCoin.com

In #DaleCarnegie’s book, #HowToWinFriendsAndInfluencePeople (recommended reading for anyone working in Leadership Positions/Roles etc…) — ONE of the main ‘how to’s’ revolves around … “Never telling People They Are Wrong” — Because, people do not like to be told, when they are wrong; they DISLIKE people who tell them when they are wrong;

(from this slide show of How to Win Friends & Influence People)

………. Which feeds into why People are so Easily “Influenced” By all the WRONG people; those folks simply never point out what they are doing wrong, and they “like them” and allow those folks to shape them; (while usually, turning Away from those who point out wrong, and also ignoring the Advice they give that ‘would’ help them — they Choose not to listen) — It’s one of the ‘rules’ I never liked nor agreed with.

I figure, if the people I’m leading do not want to be “Coached” and Mentored; which often Involves pointing out flaws, ‘so that you can do better, be better, get better results….’ – then those are the people ‘for me’ …. and if anybody fell out with me, over telling them #OneCoin is a Scam; honestly – that says more about them, than ‘they’ can ever say about me. … that’s how I see it.

Just in case you’ve ‘never read it’, here is a ‘summary video’ on Dale Carnegie’s book, How to Win Friends & Influence People

Almost every other ‘how to’ in this book, I adhere to in my leadership to this day. I’m often lifting up those who contribute to the team. It is almost ‘rare’ for them to get praised that often. Sometimes it turns people away simply because they ‘think’ I am up to something. Though, not as quickly as telling people something they ‘love’, like Onecoin.com or Bitconnect, isn’t what ‘they’ think it is.

I say, look to the reputation of those you follow. If you want to follow us, read this blog; watch the youtube videos. Our message has been consistent. We want to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of; so we can BUILD a team that looks out for one another in a pool filled with sharks.

Mysterious Removal of My YouTube Video

I recently experienced a very mysterious Removal of my Youtube Video, and am still in that experience now.  I usually get an email or a notification about videos being taken down. This time was different, as a video I made about my reasons to align with CTFO (and not Kannaway) has disappeared.   It’s quite embarrassing as I already wrote about my reasons over on Steemit.  I sent an email out to my trusted list of business contacts. Sorta makes me look like I don’t have all my stuff together, when I’m the most together there is.

I can only take a wild guess that people from Kannaway are behind it.

removal of my youtube video on ctfo vs kannaway

A few years back when i went through a similar situation (the removal of my youTube video on Kannaway)

I wrote about it in, what hs become one of my most popular articles on TopNetworkersGroup’s blog, It’s all of it.  Why YouTube Does Nothing About False Flagging, is a story about how people from Kannaway did not like my videos, and attacked my channel.  In that process I came to realize that this was a very well funded company.  The company Medical Marijuana, Inc created a subsidiary (kannaway) using Millions of dollars to fight little ole’ me.

They were probably paying people to monitor me and others from an office. 

They won a momentary victory I’ll admit. Not because I was in violation of youTube’s terms of service, or because I was wrong in what I had to say. The removal of my Youtube Video on Kannaway back then, and the harassment I faced, only proved what I’ve been saying about Network Marketing for some time now.  MLM has been invaded by Corporate America. They use their money for conspicuous deeds.  Paying Google to silence any negative press about their company is not beyond the means of a well funded company.  No average network marketing start up has the money to fight off anyone who may not be totally on board with their program.

But Medical Marijuana, Inc is no regular network marketing company.

That was a big reason I didn’t like the compensation plan that they put together. Like way too many companies, there was a high entry fee to get started. Then you had to be on autoship every single month. A major problem with autoships is you end up with products you don’t need stockpiled in a garage or a spare room. After reviewing the opportunity presented by another company, CTFO, I decided to sign up.

Both companies are offering CBD products but CTFO has no sign up fee to become an associate. You can try out the products at your convenience. Should you decide that you’d like to start building a customer base, you can do that and you’ll earn a decent monthly commission on those sales.  If any of your customers also want to start earning a few extra dollars each month, they can start at any time as well.  It’s a flexible business plan that actually helps you and I get back to what makes network marketing go.

Too much automation is going around in MLM today. Network Marketing is and always will be about relationships. I’ve met too many people in this industry who simply don’t Care about their relationships anymore. Everyone is ‘just a number’ to go through….

We have to be careful not to adopt corporate american ‘mentality’ …. but too many already have.

The negative influence of their money is being felt, and I’d be ready to bet they are responsible for the removal of my youtube video on CTFO vs Kannaway (want to try CBD products?).  You’ll see the video was linked up to that article but it’s no longer available. These are all the reasons to build stronger networks, and look out for one another. It’s always us vs. the machines.

Participation Trophy Mentality In MLM Is Not Good

How Participation Trophy Mentality Has Stalled Topnteworkersgroup and MLM: When i started up TNG in 2010, it was mostly all ‘concept’ – I knew what I wanted to do, but had to work through how to do it; along the way, things came together and the 1 mlm system was born; Some people didn’t like the name….

It had MLM in it – and it’s unfortunate that the industry has such a bad reputation; but that’s precisely why I put MLM in the name; b/c I’ve always envisioned TNG as a team that does MLM “the right way” – however, I just have not attracted ‘the right people” into the fold…. Yet.

So with total honesty, most of 2017 has been a MLM Break for me; I’m still ‘in’ companies I was in before; TNG is still sailing the seas; The 1 MLM System is still operational; just needs a few tweaks, and a few more of the right people to board the ship.

The challenge though, is I live in the Participation Trophy Generation; so everyone assumes everyone is equally the same – and that makes things difficult in business.  The ‘leaders’ I set things up with, wanted to be leaders too. They didn’t want to follow me, they wanted to Co-lead.  All that does, is confuse people, which Austin Rivers recently talked about. You know we cover the correlation of Sports and Business here. Austin Rivers, currently the starting point guard for the Los Angeles Clippers spoke about his former Teammate Chris Paul and current teammate Blake Griffin’s relationship. He said that no one ‘really knew who the leader was’.  This led to dysfunction on a team that was supposed to do, much better than they did.

Austin Rivers on Leaders

This mindset infects the team, and those who ‘could have’ been integral parts of the network you’re seeking to grow.

People come to you for help; but due to this Participation Trophy Mindset people have; eventually THEY feel they’re just as much an expert as You are – and ignore all the help you provide; only to say you did not help them — rather than admit they didn’t accept the help — same way people are no longer able to accept that their Performance wasn’t good enough for 1st place – but now they get to ‘decide’ that it was, even if it wasn’t.

That’s the world I’m in. I’m thankful that I heard about bitcoin …. who knows where I’d be right now if I was fully depending on MLM.

I love the business model, but the people in the industry – are plagued with society’s lack of evolved ideas; People bring their Employee mindset to the Group; their Individualistic mentality to the Group; and never adopt ‘Group mentality” — they’re literally useless…… and so as 1,000 more MLM’s sprang up this year; they’re all simply recycling the same people over and over; and it’s a shame none of them seem to see what’s happening.

Now Everyone thinks they can do what I did; and make their own teams; build their own sites; teach things the way they wanna teach it; b/c they don’t ‘know’ I’m teaching Old School stuff that’s been around for 40+ years :: they think I made it all up on my own; b/c … participation trophy mindsets are lazy.

They Assume first place, won first place, because of any reason other than first place worked harder than second place did. I can show people the door; but they gotta walk through it…. I can give people that Red Pill; but they gotta accept truth, and not wish they had taken the Blue one after a visit to the Desert of the real; after they come to grips with the reality that their reality isn’t reality.

I’ve had several people come to me, who Used to work with TNG – or more accurately; who Signed up for programs TNG promoted – and they say to me “Al, I just can’t get people to follow me….”

They never wanna hear the reason why; The reason is, in MLM what YOU do duplicates.

following to be a Leader

You can’t get people to follow you – because you don’t follow ….

There were books you were told to read; that you did not read. There were videos you were told to watch; that you chose not to watch; You decided you heard it all, knew it all, and that you didn’t need to hear anymore – and That Duplicates …..

When YOU talk to people about a program; they don’t look – they don’t listen – they assume – because that’s how you are. They won’t watch videos, b/c You won’t watch videos either; They won’t follow your lead; because You Aren’t Following Your own Sponsor. Your Sponsor hosts a Webinar, you find a reason to miss it; Then wonder why people you Invite to Webinars, find reasons to miss those too – people do what you DO not what you say.

Sometimes, people still won’t do what you do, even when you’re doing it.  Yet, you’ll never get anyone to do anything you’re not already doing.  I shouldn’t even have to cover this, but the participation trophy mentality, makes people expect success in MLM regardless.  People really think, all they have to do is sign up, and ‘get’ others to sign up.

MLM’ers with this participation trophy mindset hop from one company to the next because they think it’s the company.  They think it’s their sponsor’s fault, or the founders of the company.  These people come to believe if they sell a different product more people will buy from ‘them’.  They never change who THEY are though.

The participation trophy mentality, stops a person from working on themselves.

A person who thinks they deserve a trophy, even when they lose will never understand.  Coffee is for Closers only.

Participation Trophy Mentality in MLM is Not Good

ICoinPro Has No Business In MLM: Avoid This One

About a month ago I cut a video for all of you about ICoinPro, and so the developments since are not surprising to me. I love MLM but often the people in the industry are literally ruining the industry. ICoinPro is the latest example of an MLM that really should not be garnering support from the Reps in the industry.

However, right now most MLM reps are desperate for money and lack any real business knowledge.

Because unfortunately, most MLM business people are lazy. They do not read books or educate themselves about business. So they would naturally think an ‘educational MLM’ about cryptocurreny is a good idea. Truth is, the $50/mo you’d be spending on an education SHOULD have been INVESTED into the market!!!!!

You wanna learn about this game? GET IN and start playing the game; talk to others playing the game …. you don’t need to “Pay for courses” … that’s bull!

MLM'ers are Ruining it again; IcoinPro remarks

Avoid IcoinPro – and instead Get Started for FREE at CoinBase.com

Through Coinbase you can start buying bitcoin, ethereum and litecoin. These are 3 very excitnging Cryptocurrencies that you do want to get a piece of.   I first began investing in Bitcoin in January of 2017. I only put a little bit on Bitoin, and in a few weeks my investment began to grow. Bitcoin had just hit $1,000 then, and fell to $800. I bought during the dip, and made profits almost right away. Then I noticed Ethereum at only $10, and bought several of those. To my delight, since January the Gains in Ethereum have been nothing short of wonderful.  Now, I’m diversifying several profits into more ‘alternative coins’ known as Alt coins….

My portfolio is growing, and yours can too – Just get started! Don’t Pay for an ‘educational course’ that is truly designed to help SOME people make money.

Here is my original review of ICoinPro (and why you should put this money into the market) —

The ‘audio’ is a little low so turn that up. Also, I didn’t shave or cut my hair — but that is a HUGE problem with MLM — too many of you are trying to JUDGE the next man or woman on their outward appearances. It shows a lack of growth within the men and women who ‘represent’ MLM.   This is why so many of you keep getting scammed, because you’re looking at the Outside. Take note to what I shared in this review of IcoinPro.

“Your job in MLM is not to follow everyone else around. Your job is to lead and be a leader. TO be a leader means you don’t always follow the crowd” – Al King, CEO & Founder TopNetworkersGroup

If you’ll invest $40 per month into BitCoin for the next 12 months, you would have put $480 into the market. I promise you, by the end of 12 months you’ll have MORE than $480 in your ‘cryptocurrency portfolio’. Because that is what we’ve seen. There will be days, weeks, and possibly ‘months’ like the one we just experienced, where prices DIP. However, the prices continue to go up.

IF you want to learn more about bitcoin, read …. use google … but don’t pay money to ‘learn’ from people in MLM who barely know anything about any of this themselves.

Also, here are a few channels on YouTube where experts are giving out quality advice all the time.

Starting with Kenn Bosak – who keeps it pretty damn real if you ask me.  Unlike “MLM” there are no motives here when someone talks about crypto.   Here’s Kenn talking about ‘the RETURN of Bitcoin’ — exciting times.

If you’re reading this right now, you’ve gotten this information FOR FREE ….

If you want to make money in this space, feel free to also check out Steemit.com – and see what TopNetworkersGroup is already churning out on their network – there are also a ton of people on this social network who know what’s going on.    You’ll also want to read up on, another social network called OnG.Social – which could be the Next Facebook (or the Next TSU?)

But, don’t fool yourself by following these non-business men and women in the MLM Space who are telling you to pay for IcoinPro. No offense to the people who created that company but, the distributors continue not to live up to ‘their end’ of the deal. As representatives we have to be better. We’re a long way away right now.

Home Business Education Matters Right Now

There is almost too much information available in the internet driven information age. Home business education matters more now than ever before. You see, the majority of society is taught to be an employee. That is how it’s been set up. We are absolutely born into The Matrix, and need to Free our Minds from the ‘digital prison’ we are in.

This prison fills us with myths, and mental limitations. When people are introduced to network marketing the mental obstacles are the toughest to overcome.

home business education

“I don’t like Selling” is a common rejection you’ll hear in this line of work.

It’s important to be okay with that, and to listen. People always tell you what you need to know. Your job as a network marketer is to listen and learn, to sort not sell. Most people have no home business education and, think they have to talk folks into stuff. That does not work. It only alienates a person and makes them run away from you.

Don’t guilt trip anyone into being your business partner, instead …. (sign up for Training to find out what we recommend!)

Knowing how to turn a NO into a quality YES that’s actually beneficial to you is only going to help you meet your financial goals. It’s also going to show that you value that person, when you respect their No, but instead make them feel like they’re still helping you. That’s one of many ‘skills’ taught to my Team inside of our 1 MLM System.

Let’s say for some reason you don’t want to be in business with me. That’s fine with me. TopNetworkersGroup has always thought about the BIGGER Picture.

So, you can and should also visit our home business education website, where you can be ‘part’ of our Special Business Education Community.

TopnetworkersGroup has always been serious about education. We have written about topics like, Smart Marketers Wanted, and more.

The best businesses, are full of the best people. Through the SeekingAHomeBusiness platform you are invited to shine alongside smart business people. You’re saying, to all who visit that you also, believe in home business education.

You’re not a spammer with no skills who’s just going through the numbers are you?

How is that working out?
