One of the books most of you will learn about along your journey in MLM is “How To win Friends and Influence Others” by Dale Carnegie. It’s a classic novel which really does go into depth on how to win people over to your side. One of the major methods is to simply never tell people that they are wrong. People never like to be told that they are wrong, and when we tell them they resent us. I’ve honestly never been able to get around that one.
I know it’s true, and yet when People join my team who do things wrong – I have to tell them.
If I don’t tell them, they’ll continue doing it wrong and MLM as a whole will continue to suffer. So will the overall vision of TopNetworkersGroup. How can we ever become the kind of team I envision for us, if we all refuse to do things ‘the right way’?
It’s a difficult challenge because Entrepreneurs are so independent in their thinking.
MLM, while a great vehicle goes against the fiber of many of their beings. They’re not looking to be coached or told what to do. Sadly many don’t even want help with ‘how’ to do things they’re doing now. Rarely do any people look for someone to guide them on doing what they do, better.
So here we are. TNG has a great vision, and tools to help a team accomplish the goal.
But the right people are still not reporting for duty.
Quick Comment from Facebook — a platform I don’t really recommend. Especially for network marketers who are a bit more outspoken. Yet, in spite of all our efforts to tell marketers about other social networks many have remained on Facebook. Most aren’t making money there either…. I was right, and they resent me for it.
I was right about MLM too. Still am. I told those ‘who listened’ that people aren’t doing MLM right. The last 3-5 years, I’ve watched so many GOOD and talented people who could have been wildly successful in MLM quit – because the ‘forces in the industry’ are too big, too great, and far too overwhelming for them to ‘hear my message’ ……….. They can’t even grasp the sh*t I’m on in this MLM Space; They’re still putting PROGRAMS over PEOPLE …. They’ll never get what MLM was supposed to do FOR people. So they’ll never get MLM; not on the level they should; which means they cannot PASS on MLM to others; Not the way it should be passed on. Too many “Misrepresentatives” outchere … #TNGForever tho – My ship doesn’t sink; I own the boat.
Who are the “Right People” for our Team and for MLM? – (They are the ones who have read the books listed in TopNetworkersGroup Episode #1: MLM Sucks Right Now) – frankly we are still sorting to find you. Most of you are just not ready to put your ego aside and allow someone else to tell you what to do. We’ll tell you what words to use, but you have to use those words and not words of your own. We can give you the websites to use, but you have to use our sites and not sites you make on your own. Those two tasks alone, disqualify so many people.
But that’s due to a huge misunderstanding of MLM. This is not an individual sport. It’s not an industry for you to showcase your individual talents or ideas off. Your job is not to come here and reinvent the wheel, it is to learn how to make the wheel turn. What you learn, is the wheel turns when you and OTHERS put your hands on the same wheel, and go at a pace that pushes your “Vehicle” down the road…. whatever vehicle it is. The programs are the vehicles, and they only matter if you know how to DRIVE!
MLM sucks right now. There is no ‘nice’ way to put that. One of the main problems that is causing this situation is that Celebrity Worship has made its way into MLM. Far too many network marketers are looking for a top earner to sponsor them, which hurts the industry overall. These people just do not understand the mlm model, and that is causing this scenario.
MLM Sucks right now – Because you’re not Getting better, or growing as a person or a business owner.
Are you a real leader, or a ‘so called leader’? – Leaders push the Right ideas.
They’re not just trying to make themselves wealthy, or ‘get along’. Leaders are more concerned with doing what is right. Having Integrity goes a long way, and used to seperate the MLM Industry from Corporate America. Is that the case now? Are we, in our industry truly focused on growing? The better the team is, the more money the entire team will make. When you’re in a great MLM Company but you’re on a team that ‘sucks’, your results show.
Teams work together. They edify one another, do 3-way calls and hop on weekly conference calls, webinars and build through meetings. Unfortunately too many people are in a rush to make money and feel like these ‘meetings’ take up their time. OH how wrong they are – most of them are spinning their wheels doing everything other than what actually works. In this video I share a story of yet, another person who’s come to me for help that doesn’t know how to generate leads.
I told him to start talking to people. I guess he was expecting more.
He thought he needed to write a great article, or an ad that would go viral. Like so many, he’s trying to hit a home-run, rather than going base by base. This is why MLM Sucks. We have too many people in this industry in a ‘rush’ to make money, who aren’t learning the basics. Network Marketers have literally ruined Facebook Groups, with too much reliance on Automation. I had a real conversation with another marketer the other day, about this very thing.
It's damn confusing Al. I'm guessing they are using some type of software or something linked to hashtags used? I don't mind really 🙃 https://t.co/giKZbc20fl
People can See Through You – You’re amateur status is showing!
Just like this ‘house’ people can look at you and see what you’re all about. They know your motives, your ‘why’ and can tell it’s pure selfishness. People can tell most of the ‘leaders’ do not care. As John Maxwell said, about Leadership and why people ‘follow people’ — People do not care what you know, until they know that you care.
Pushing high-entry level opportunities on people so you can make a quick bonus, and not putting an emphasis on Training & reading books is why MLM Sucks right now. It’s producing too many people who are willing to back stab, and scam their way into a few dollars. People know that you’ll tell anyone a product is ‘life changing’ if you can make a few bucks.
But, it’s never worth it in the end. All of you are Hurting the MLM industry.
Help me make MLM better. I’m looking for people to help me build up TopNetworkersGroup. You must be willing to grow, stretch and become better than you are right now. The Leadership Team must have a copy of the following books: “Multiple Streams of Income”, “Wave 4: Network Marketing in the 21st Century”, and “Cashflow Quadrant” – all of which are Available for purchase at our Bookstore – via the 1mlmsystem.
*Update 2/8/2018 – Since writing this my original Twitter was Suspended due to False Flagging: another Automation Issue that causes social media to suck. I was ironically attacked by a bunch of people who failed to get MLM to work for them – mostly because they Suck as people. They now go around the internet ‘trolling’ and mass reporting Pro-MLM accounts. Nothing good can come of that, and this is the world we have inhabited. MLM can only be ‘so much better’ than the society it is part of. Change really does begin with you and me.
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.
“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.
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.

Let’s talk about Daily Fantasy Sports Websites. (*2/22/19 – quick update on this article, before we get into the content below, originally penned in 2015. Lots has happened in the Daily Fantasy Sports industry – including a couple of the programs we recommended initially below, going out of business. Big name companies we talekd about, have since been bought out by bigger sports betting companies; so they can offer daily fantasy sports to their audiences. From 2017, to 2018 the DFS industry only saw about a 2.4% growth; bringing in over $3 billion in ‘entry fees’. The net profits, are still under $400 Million dollars. That’s OPPORTUNITY to a business minded professional. Are you interested in taking Advantage of an opportunity? Those who ‘help’ the industry grow, will partake in the profits…. * Original content below; was John Oliver right about Daily Fantasy sports?)
If you’re new to our website, TopNetworkersGroup has been talking about the Huge and Expanding industry of Daily Fantasy Sports for several months now. In a nutshell, Daily Fantasy Sports has literally changed just about everything in the Fantasy Sports landscape. I have been playing fantasy sports for more than 10 years now; and when new sites sprang up giving people a way to Play fantasy sports without the year long commitment I knew they were onto something hot!
Time has proven that to be true. The daily fantasy sports industry is now bringing in so much money that it’s getting a lot of attention. Recently on Last Week Tonight (a show on HBO) John Oliver ripped into the industry – mostly by going after it’s two biggest names: DraftKings and FanDuel. The question John Oliver and several others are raising, including states like Nevada and New York which recently banned these kinds of websites from operating in their states, is whether or not it’s gambling.
Here’s a clip from the show; John Oliver going IN on Daily fantasy sports
Is he, and others who are raising this question right?
Personally I’m on the fence and have to say that I am somewhat swayed by the bias thinking that it’s absolutely a game of skill, more so than a game of random chance. You really do have to know something about the sports you’re choosing lineups for, otherwise you’re going to get killed by those who do. It’s one of the things you notice from playing fantasy sports for 10 years. You end up in leagues with people who really don’t know much about the sport, whether it’s football or basketball. I never really played other sports, but can only imagine the same applies there also.
That being said, if you really don’t know what you’re doing, the ‘odds’ of you winning money is against you. It’s not in your favor.
Which is why if you’re going to do it, you have to have ‘control’ – which even I will admit is not something that most people with Gambling Addiction have, when it comes to gambling.
If you are not the kind of person who can put yourself on a Budget; and Only play ‘so much money’ at a time; whether its’ a month, or a week; whatever you decide – if you cannot stick to your own plan then absolutely, you should stay away from anything remotely close to gambling. And, it IS a gamble, that your line up will beat the next man’s line up. It’s one thing to be in fantasy sports leagues for a year where each ‘team manager’ chooses from a pool of players, but no two teams are the same. It’s entirely something else when you’re playing in these daily fantasy sports competitions with others who have several of the same players that you have; With a few variations.
They might pick up a Guard that you don’t go with; and that Guard makes all the difference on that night.
But, that’s just the ‘luck of the draw’ …
Right now, my Los Angeles Lakers are having a tough start to the NBA Season and several people are raising the question of whether or not they chose the right player at the second Pick. The guy they skipped over is off to a Monster career already. He’s averaging a double double and looks like he’s going to be around for years to come. The point guard the Lakers chose, however – in stark contrast seems to be anywhere from having a slow start; to struggling. That’s entirely separate from another ‘issue’ in Lakerland. Was Julius Randle the right choice in the previous draft? Several questions are also being raised there too. Because, that’s how it goes in sports. You never really know who’s going to perform.
This is why sports betting is such a major industry – and absolutely, placing a ‘wager’ on who’s fantasy team is going to do better on a night to night basis, is a gamble.
And yet even this practice is part of playing fantasy sports.
Traditionally, everyone puts money into a pot; and it’s usually enough to award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. Depending on the ‘pool’ it may even reward more places than that. That’s just how it’s always been. What Daily fantasy sports has done, is build on that idea, and take it up to a whole new level, where people have a chance to win money, every single day; Not just at the End of the season.
Is it gambling though? …. is John Oliver right about daily fantasy sports?
If you have issues with gambling, be sure to seek help. stay far away from Daily fantasy sports if you feel it’s going to lead to you making poor decisions with your money.
That being said, that’s where WE come in.
Through Topnetworkersgroup, and primarily THROUGH our 1 mlm system – you ‘should’ be learning some financial literacy.
You should be working on your ability to control what you can control.
If there was a way to get a piece of this pie – this huge and expanding market – WOULD you want to?
For us, that answer is yes, especially if the timing is right. We added One of the daily fantasy sports programs we backed into about 6 months ago, to all levels of our system. We feel that it’s an excellent affiliate program that allows you to get started FOR free; refer others; build up that ‘network of players’ – and since these sites are paying us for what that network does, we saw the Opportunity to get a piece of a rapidly expanding industry. Several of our key leaders got positioned and if you have not done so by now, perhaps it’s because you’re just not working with our team… yet. (Change that mistake. Get started with our Team here)
We feel that if you and others were to simply Play $10/mo – not only do you have the chance to win; from $1-$5 contests, you also will earn money from all the Players in your network.
We felt that if you were actually following our system, and utilizing our additional streams of income to generate money WITH The network we are helping you build, that eventually you could afford $50/mo – and so will others in your network. You can play in way more $1-$5 contests, and if you want you can even jump in the contests with higher entries. Usually the cash prizes are bigger. But ultimately it’s a win win because your network of Players, are generating income which UNLIKE OTHER Daily Fantasy Sports Sites – This one is sharing a piece with you!
Just last month (as of me writing this) – we backed into yet another daily fantasy sports competition website, with an even better referral plan.
Again, we recommend this same ‘controlled spending’ approach. Figure out what’s a comfortable range for you – and build a network that is able to do the same thing. Together you’re going to generate MONEY; while giving yourselves a chance to win too. Of course, the more you know about the sports you’re picking lineups for, the better you’re going to do.
Ok … It’s gambling.
But hey, that’s life … it’s a gamble. That’s business, full of RISK. It’s a risk to take a risk; It’s often a risk NOT to.
So let me be a little less Vague.
The first site we started talking to you about, is FantasyDraft.com – Sign up for free; start playing for free; Feel free to load up $10 – and just make sure you CONTROL yourself! Good luck!
The second site, is pretty awesome – Just got an email from the CEO this morning … I want to share ‘part’ of that with you real quick. (*edited out; this company went out of business)
For those of you who are reading this… Yea, John Oliver may be right. Eventually more and more states may decide to shut these kinds of daily fantasy sports websites down. But there’s too much money going through this industry to think that decision will be temporary. It’s business. The states want a cut.
Be sure to also sign up to work WITH ME for Support with growing a network of players; who share the same goal as WE do. (That goal. To take the ‘gamble’ out of making money with daily fantasy sports websites – by playing and working as a team)
The passing of Dr. Wayne Dyer hit me by surprise last night. I wanted to take a few moments to pay tribute.
I wanna start by sharing some thoughts I just shared earlier today on my Facebook.
It seemed fitting the way things unfolded last night. That’s where my Tribute to The Master Teacher Dr. Wayne Dyer begins.
I didn’t watch the VMA’s ….I heard Yeezy announced he was running for President in 2020 so I had to see that foolishness for myself immediately – and did – then I heard/saw the news of the passing of the great Master Teacher – and decided it was more important to take a moment; and reflect on that. I found myself amused because of the odd similar nature of what Yeezy said in his ‘speech’ at the VMA’s – and what Dr. Wayne Dyer said about us, not being our bodies; how so much of what we think matters does not; and how we should be constantly seeking to make our lives a Work of Art; a Masterpiece; something that evolves and grows; and is not ‘done’ – and often is not what ‘other people’ feel it is; and often may not even be appreciated until years later; and how we should really be more caught up in our contributions to mankind, than in the competitions of life; of being ‘first’ – of being ‘better’ – oddly and not oddly at all; that’s how my night went last night.
I didn’t even really tune into the beef with Nicki and Miley; missed it; and after some good reflection; took that mental break; and watched 2 Episodes of #Narcos on Netflix; Looks like I’ll be through with that series in about a week; it done pulled me in already …. smh
Plus; I know a lot about that game; and how it’s impacted my people; I’ve lost family and friends to that game; where Billions of dollas is floating out of the country and what’s coming in contributes to the struggle; all a game though;
That being said, that was my night. Still didn’t catch the VMA’s.
I Saw someone say they only watch award shows these days to understand the Memes that come out after; that about sums up my feelings too. We all need a break from reality and maybe you get yours through VMA’s; while I get mine through Narcos; Not about who’s ‘break’ is better; I just hope that when you get done with your break; you get back to the work that you’re here to do. Because … as we take our breaks; we see the work that needs to be done; No need in pointing fingers or expecting someone else to do it.
Be the solution.
Because you can.
Now let’s help provide just a bit of Context to what I was talking about there.
“I don’t know what’s gonna happen tonight, I don’t know what’s gonna happen tomorrow, bro. But all I can say to my artists, to my fellow artists: Just worry how you feel at the time, man.”
Focus on the now; Something Dr. Wayne Dyer spent so much time teaching us throughout his life, his books and his live speeches and seminars. Be in the now. Understand that we are so much more than the outer appearance. That we are something more, and something bigger. Which oddly enough was also part of this epic VMA speech –
“Look at that. You know how many times MTV ran that footage again? ’Cause it got them more ratings? You know how many times they announced Taylor was going to give me the award ’cause it got them more ratings? Listen to the kids, bro! I still don’t understand awards shows. I don’t understand how they get five people who worked their entire life … sold records, sold concert tickets to come stand on the carpet and for the first time in they life be judged on the chopping block and have the opportunity to be considered a loser! I don’t understand it, bruh!”
Dr. Wayne Dyer always spoke to us about how life is really not a competition. It’s really not about us striving to be first; or to be better than someone else. Instead we should be striving to be the best US; the best of our SELVES – our true selves….
Do you see how the timing of all of this really sorta made me take a moment last night? Because what I did after finding out the news – is started re-listening to a few of my favorite talks; shared a few on my social networks (fb, twitter, tsu) – and there he was, repeating a message from Kanye West.
Dr West? —
No, not Cornel … some of you will get that later.
The point though; that is how I know a bigger message was being communicated yesterday.
But most people will not take it seriously coming from Kanye West. Even I admitted that it sounded like foolishness. But when I got there – I was pleasantly surprised at how real it was. So real.
When I consider what we are here to do; as TopnetworkersGroup – it’s so much more about being better than ourselves; than worrying about competition because in reality there is none. When I look around the MLM industry amazingly most people still do not understand. ONE stream of income is unstable and focusing on ONE mlm company is career suicide. I’ve been watching ‘leaders’ from wakeupnow attempt to rebuild the magic of what they once had under the New company; but so much of it is the same company that, most people have already moved onto something else.
TLC is pretty hot in the industry right now but; just got word of a hotter program and I believe by this time next year; we will see more MLM Company closures; and more people in more MLM Opportunities; all with the same or similar results. A small % making all the money…. while the vast majority are broke.
And that is why we are here. We had to be here.
We had to launch when we did. People had to come and go like they did. The system had to be built when it was. The tweaks, changes, and rearrangements have all been necessary.
Everything is on perfect time.
While I sit here getting ready for the future; I take a moment to be thankful for all that has come before.
I take a moment to say thank you, to Master Teachers like Dr. Wayne Dyer – who’s talks are Featured THROUGHOUT the leadership training section of our 1mlmsystem – and who’s Video is one of our Mainstays at SeekingAHomeBusiness.com – because he IS one of my master teachers; He’s someone I’ve followed and because of that, has made an impact on my life.
I can only hope to have a fraction of that kind of impact on others; as I pass through this existence.
