Facebook Down, Instagram WhatsApp Too; DDos Attack

Today Facebook and it’s family of social media platforms are down; Facebook Down, Instagram Down, WhatsApp is down too. The outages apparently the result of a DDos Attack. Not too long ago I cut a video that you can see below, about why Facebook Sucks for Network Marketers. I feel that too many people in network marketing rely on this platform ‘only’, and tune out other options to use, while building. Along with the attraction to automation, networkers are losing the much needed human touch.

Plus with Facebook Down, and others you see how fragile your business can be.

“if”, this is how you’re building your business.  That facebook “Live” you were using isn’t going out to most of your audience today. The IG TV show you put together to launch your business, also failed you today. A while back, sites using facebook as a way for members to login, were unable to serve their customer bases. (Because users could not log in.)

Throughout the years, it’s grown too popular and far too powerful. I no longer use their ‘comment section’, so that our site is not going to go down, when Facebook is.

With Facebook down, we get lessons on ‘all your eggs in one basket’. This is an argument for diversity, and decentralization. more than likely Facebook, IG and WhatsApp will recover from this DDos Attack. Knowing these can happen at any time however, should make you, think more deeply about your approach to building.

Use TheConversionPros to build lead capture pages, landing pages, and use their auto responders to Market ‘directly’ to your leads through email.  Email marketing is a lost art. I guess the argument is, people don’t read their emails anymore.  It’s not a lie though.

Readers are leaders and frankly, the industry is missing Leaders … who Read ….

We used to recommend ‘building through our 1mlmsystem Live Office’, but now we have “The Secret Office”.  All part of The Rich Man’s Plan from TNG, it is a similar concept. When building, you and I have to get prospects ‘out’ of environments with distractions. Back in the day that meant going to a hotel conference room, or ballroom meeting. Pulling people out of environments that distract them, help you build better teams. Teams of people who will read email they see, from you.

While facebook down trends, and jokes are made on twitter, lessons await to teach the Student who is Ready.

This user isn’t joking, they’re… very frustrated.

Again, this is what happens when people don’t spread themselves out. Again, I’m the guy who blamed ‘the people’ when Crazygood went out of business. I said people using it, did not place value on using the network. They all kept putting value on Facebook. That ‘same energy’ has gone into instagram, and that’s why facebook bought them. When TSU rolled out, the same thing happened again.  Folks didn’t use it ‘like they used’ facebook.  Too many people treated it like something different, and that’s why it went out of business.

Other Jokes from Facebook Down on Twitter …

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.

MLM Industry Statement from TopnetworkersGroup.com

I’m a veteran of the MLM industry. Joined in 99′ and my ‘first tour’ went into 2004; after 5 years with my first company i decided to start my Own business, building websites; using most of what I learned in my first company I was able to acquire customers and build a few solid streams of income. Then in 2009, I got a phone call from my old ‘upline’ and got the ‘bug’ to get back in the game; It’s crazy how much Changed in a few years. During my MLM hiatus (2004-2009) I began studying Internet Marketing; learning from cats like Stephen Pierce and Matt Bacak; I was using landing pages, and auto responders – and thought ‘man this would work so well with mlm’ —- A guy named Mike Dillard did what I was “thinking” about doing…. he merged the two and created an entire industry …. of idiots.

Today, most people in the MLM Industry are relying entirely on technology;

the MLM Industry has too many Robots and not enough Professional People
No human touch; the business model was never intended to function that way. That’s why the Positive press that was starting to emerge on MLM has gone entirely away; Everyone hates it now. … again …

I feel that’s because most people’s introduction to “Mike Dillard’s version of mlm” lacks the Fundamentals to understand he combined TWO Separate Business Models into One; and while people are learning a lot of great internet marketing concepts; They’re learning NOTHING about network marketing; to the detriment of the entire industry.

Attrition rates are higher than ever before. People are making even less money; The throne is open …. the right team of well trained individuals will take over this industry and help it rise to the position it should be at in our society; we actually ‘should’ want to empower one another, instead of corporations – but ‘getting there’ requires an industry of ‘representatives’ who fully understand what they are doing.

The longest distance between any two points, is a short cut; and right now MLM is filled with short cut mentality; I’m currently on the look for 3-5 Leaders who want to run with me; but as usual, not all who apply are qualified;

In 2010, I realized the industry had changed; I realized we were entering the 5th Wave, just as #RichardPoe predicted; I started getting ready. In 2012 me and a business partner launched the 1 mlm system  – but we were not on the same page; The page I was on, and still am on, is “Team over Company” — my partner however, decided to Focus on a Company; that went out of business – which was the entire point of NOT focusing on a company;

When Two “leaders” of a team are not on the same page; the rest of the Team won’t be either.

So I cannot have ‘founders’ that wanna do their own thing if our mission is to be successful. No more “Broke Man Plan” types who come into my system to “steal” my ideas and ‘try’ to use them for self. No more “Prosperous Rhinoceros”  types who wanna ‘try’ to use concepts I teach, to write BOOKS to sell ,that misquote me – No “Retired MLM Vets” who Call Me up to pitch me on My 1mlmsystem, as if HE came up with the very idea I Just shared with him. (all True Stories; Names changed to cut down on Drama)

Way too much nonsense out here; but it’s all good; Those folks helped me learn that ‘some things’ need to be protected until a proper leadership team is assembled. This new video goes into why the MLM industry needs what we have to offer. That will only be possible, when we have identified the right people to build with. The Rich Man’s Plan will help us find those individuals. Are you one of the people We need?

The “Live Office” is back; new and improved; to help me with sorting people properly to ensure I’m building ‘with the right people’ – This message is going out to the official list in a few minutes; going up on TNGforever ::: the right 3-5 people are in store for are life changing journey; and we will bless the lives of all who align themselves with us ….. Here’s to the future!

TNG Launches Rich Man’s Plan For MLM Industry

A few weeks ago, I announced that I’d be launching The Rich Man’s Plan. Yes, it’s a direct response to the thief who came into our system, and decided to ‘try’ and use our principles for his own benefit. It taught me that I’ve got to do better at safeguarding what I’ve created.  If you or anyone else comes across these ideas, you’ll know immediately they came from TopNetworkersGroup.  You see, within the MLM industry, the ideas I’ve presented have been unpopular. They have been slow to catch on, as the Old Guard fights to keep the status quo.

The problem with status quo in MLM is 90% of our industry is broke.

That statistic has to change, for our industry to ever garner the respect it deserves.  However, if we as leaders won’t lead properly, do we or our industry deserve respect?  IF we continue to do what is not working for 90% of the people in our downlines, should be be called respectable opportunities?  Let’s be honest, as we move forward.

TNG has never been for everyone. People get turned off by all this brutal honesty, and yet I feel that is what’s truly missing from MLM.  You and I need to be honest with one another to build wealth. The way most of us are approaching it, ain’t it!! So our solution has truly been THE answer for some time now.

What’s missing are, the right people, and for a few years now, the right tools.

We’ve had our own websites, which truly were enough to build on. But our Live Office continued to have challenges. Eventually it shut down and I’ve been looking for a new option, to accomplish the same goal.  That Live Office was a POWERFUL tool for us.  We debuted it while building Crazygood.  It allowed us to bring a random person to our office, show them the opportunity, and they could get started and plugged in to training right away.   If they were smart, they could also start inviting others in, and we could build 2-3 levels deep in a day, with a brand new person.

Enter, The Secret Office & The Rich Man’s Plan.  To get an invite, you MUST be on my list for TopNetworkersGroup.com OR be invited by one of our Team Members.

In our update about rebuilding the TNG leadership ranks, it was made clear that this will be an important focus going forward.  This should have been the focus from the start, but it was a ‘late addition’ to the system.  While setting everything up, we never discussed ranks. My co-founder for the system, wanted to focus on ‘a company’, that ended up going out of business. That was always why we were supposed to ‘not’ focus on one company. Mistakes like these, ‘should’ work as lessons, that teach people what not to do.

Sometimes the side effect, is that person is too prideful to admit they were wrong, and they quit MLM all together.

So I am here looking for people that want to LEAD this team, but are willing to follow – not do their ‘own thing’. Unfortunately, that won’t help either of us get the goals we have set for ourselves. We have to follow a structured organized plan. This is where The Rich man’s Plan comes in. It’s a much more organized presentation of the ‘ideas’ we’ve been forming, for these past few years.

I am very excited about what is to come ::: Rich Man’s Plan Sneak Preview below ::

rich mans plan

From day one, I’ve screamed “the companies do not matter” – unfortunately without the right leadership, this message gets lost in translation.   The frontline HAS to understand what this means, or else our mission will not be accomplished.   As I stated earlier, far too many people who came through our system, got ‘hung up’ in the programs.   The last person to sign up for the 1mlmsystem, wanted me to add Wealthy Associate to the ‘line up’ … just another in a long line of people who think I work for them.  Participation Trophy Mentality at it’s … worst … where Reps want uplines to do what THEY tell them to do.   Everyone wants to be a boss, but doesn’t wanna do the work to be a boss. (Correlation between Mentors and Success in MLM)

So if you ‘do’ want to read up on a few of the programs that are involved in our Rich man’s Plan, you Can check these out below:  But if your decision to work with us is based on how you feel about these programs, then that’s the ‘first sort’ – and you’re telling me now you’re not who I’m looking for.

Reading these alone, won’t be enough for you to SEE The full picture. If you’re one of those kinds of people that wanna assume and guess your way through, I am not looking for you either. You can and should take a look at this video on Our New Plan to truly build Wealth through MLM – TNG Founder Qualifications ::: As always thanks for stopping by.

Star Wars Last Jedi Lesson For Me and My MLM Journey

After going to see Star Wars the Last Jedi, I filmed a video on a huge Lesson I learned, and how it applies to MLM.  Leading a movement to change how we approach MLM has not been easy over the years. Iv’e had several business partners come and go, and I honestly found myself feeling like Master Luke in this latest film.  You may have noticed that I’ve been on a ‘blogging hiatus’ for a few months, and it’s one of those things I think I’m allowed to after several years of great content for you on these platforms.

However I also left you with a jewel, before taking a holiday vacation from the Shark Daymond John, (giving advice) talking about the benefits of Failure.

Take a few moments to listen to some insights I gained from Star Wars, the Last Jedi

Just like Master Luke, I’ve grown tired of teaching the ‘game’ to network marketers who take these lesson and use them for personal gain.  Far too many turn to the dark side that is ruled by greed.  It’s all of what I’ve been against the entire time, and cannot lie, I’ve contemplated whether I want to be involved.  This is exactly where Luke Skywalker is when we see him in Star Wars, The Last Jedi. He is off on an island all to himself, disconnected entirely from the Force.

Meanwhile I’ve spent most of the past 12 months focused on my Invesments. From Cryptocurrency to real estate, I’ve decided to focus on what I can do for myself.  I got tired of teaching people how to market, how to recruit, and offering them training I wasn’t charging for, just for so many to turn on me in the end.

What I had to learn, came in an unexpected Cameo from Master Yoda.  We are, what they grow beyond… which in Yoda speak translates to, They Grow Beyond What We are.

The One MLM System is going to be re-built, but it’s still there. The structure is in place and the training is available to those who will follow the instructions.

In other words, The Jedi School will re-open soon, and a new generation of Leaders in this space will emerge. Read more from TNG below –
