What Makes You An Expert?

The Internet has given us Expert Overload. Seems like just about everyone who is able to call themselves an expert is doing just that!

If you’re in search of an actual expert, then you’ve really got to do some digging. Then again do you?

Don’t Experts just stand out??

Well, Let me stop asking questions and start answering them for you.  There are several levels of expertise. Some people are beginners and others are more advanced. Sounds simple right?  Well, in reality due to the nature of the internet it’s not always as ‘simple’ for you to know who is who. There are some advanced people in the field of network marketing who ‘used’ to make a lot of money. But their company went out of business. They landed in a few different companies but most of their Top leaders didn’t follow them. The new people they’ve been working with aren’t as loyal, or as well trained.

They’re also not as ‘experienced’ – and so the Expert who used to be a top Dog in a company, is trying to claw his … or her way back to the top.

Unless you knew about their previous success in that field, you might not be aware of their ‘level’ of expertise. So you’ll judge them based on the current level of ‘income’ – which again, is a set up for failure. It’s a horrible decision but, a common one that people make. People ‘see’ success, and believe that if they follow that successful person they’ll get the same, or similar results. It’s not a bad idea. It’s the way things used to work…

Enter the Internet.

Now a person who isn’t ‘really’ successful can pretend to be.

They are beginners when it comes to network marketing – and are really Unable to teach others how to make money in the industry.

BUT people sign up with them, because of the ‘perception’ that these people Made their money through this industry.  Oftentimes, it was a loan, or a paycheck that was cashed. Sad to say this but, I see so many people in network marketing who seem to act like strippers. If you show them enough money, they’ll do anything for it….

And I’m not knocking strippers – at least they GET the money that is shown to them.

That’s not usually the ‘case’ for network marketers who follow frauds.

Thinking For A Change by John C. Maxwell

To find a Real expert in today’s industry, you have to change your thinking about ‘what’ makes you an expert.  What makes anyone an expert?

It’s experiences.

expert with experience

So yea, anyone and everyone ‘can’ be an expert – but it’s important to remain in our lanes. Only speak about what you have experienced.

You bought some leads, and the leads turned out to be mostly people who are upset that their name is on ‘some list’ – well that’s now an ‘experience’ that you can speak about, on why it’s important to Generate your Own leads, rather than buy leads. it’s why I could put together a Training On social Networking for money – because it is based on my ‘experiences’ using social networks, to make money.

I’ve made money in the industry. Because I follow the advice of people who’ve made even more money in the industry than I have. What they teach works. Relationships really do matter.

The problem too many people in network marketing have is that they think they’ve gotta sponsor 1,000 people to make money.

You don’t.

You only need 3-5 good loyal business partners.

If you’ve never put 3 to 5 people into a business, you cannot truly consider yourself an expert. You should be following experts until you duplicate those results.

Then you can start writing about your ‘experiences’ learning from an expert. You can discuss how you failed to sign people up; and what changed for you. For example – when I first got into this industry I went around ‘explaining the business’ to everyone. I was basically giving a presentation everywhere I went.

The problem is, I was ‘giving people the impression’ that they would also need to go around giving presentations.

When you guys Send people 7 paragraphs and a link – and call yourselves prospecting; the ‘problem with that is’ – you’re giving people the impression that they need to do that too….

But, because I learned from several people with expertise in this industry I learned a more effective way to sponsor people. It’s a process that each of us must learn And follow.  We teach it inside of our 1mlmsystem – a training system developed for our Team (TopNetworkersGroup).  The system is designed to help you become an expert.

It’s designed to teach anyone of your business partners how to also become experts as well. When you are working with people who have ‘experience’ – together you’ll REALLY achieve your goals. When you’re working with people who aren’t experienced, you have to wait for them to learn. If they do not have the ‘desire to learn’ then you’ll have to find those who do.

Once you do though…. Prepare to ‘experience’ success like never before.

That’s the blueprint that’s been proven time and time again. However, over time we’ve seen what happens when you place ‘all of your eggs’ into One financial basket.  That’s why we teach you to really and truly approach this the right way. So that you can avoid the same fate as people who used to be Top earners but are no longer where they used to be. Take the time to learn how to build the right way; so that you’ll have income that withstands the tests, and the ongoing changes of time.

How to Overcome Failure simply by Choosing to be Successful

*Updating our article & interview on “How to Overcome Failure”, originally published in 2013.  Lots has happened since that time, as of today, February 7th, 2018 the company myself and the gentleman I interview below is no longer in business.  The information is still pertinent and relevant as this is information from a person who has Overcome failure in his own efforts in business & investing.  I actually got started in Cryptocurrency through this guy, as he referred me to Coinbase to get started with my purchases.  I’d also like to direct you to another more recent article featuring Shark Tank’s Daymond John, giving Advice on Failure and how it Truly Can be helpful.

I say that because there have been plenty lessons learned from business opportunities and partnerships that have not gone as I hoped they would.   Full Disclosure, I signed up into this opportunity with this man and he didn’t believe in it like I did; so I was left mostly to build by myself. Building without quality help is Difficult in Network marketing.  We can improve our odds by understanding the value of teamwork.  Enjoy the article and interview below – you’re welcome to leave a comment!


I did a hangout with a real Leader, who’s been Very successful in business; and in life overall – while also facing failures & obstacles that he has overcome; He has an Amazing Story to tell, and I’m excited to bring you that Recording .. right here

His name, is Damon Brooks, Sr.

I was invited to work with him in a Pre-Launch opportunity. The company actually Starts Pre-launch in February so now is the time to Position yourself, and others.

I had seen this program briefly, before being invited to work with Mr. Brooks. Because of the success he’s had in business, and the dedication he shows to businesses that are Proven to Pay Out, I went ahead and got positioned – with what might turn out to be a very solid business opportunity.

Watch the entire hangout, as I start the Live Call out, discussing why a busy professional would consider adding “another business” to a plate that is already full, which is exactly the sitatution I am in, as the CEO and Founder of TopNetworkersGroup, having just launched OUR own training system for network marketers, And recently re-activating my empower network; I definitely have a full plate.

I’m also a Veteran of the Industry; which says A lot… having been around for over 14 years now – starting out with a successful MLM Company in 1998 and staying in Just One Company for 5 years, till 2004; I know what it’s like to be ‘married to a company while not making much money’ ….

I also took the business education I got while IN that MLM company very seriously; and used it to start a successful business of my own; I kept a close eye on the industry, while also earning some additional income in various online affiliate programs between 2004 and 2009 – so I understand that There is a Difference between MLM Companies and Affiliate Programs; I’ve been studying, using, and applying Internet Marketing techniques since 2000 – and so I have a wealth of experience that allows me to earn income in Several places at one time; I share many of those insights on How I am able to do it, in this Hangout

– but … I’m really not who you want to see.

You will want to brace yourself, for the Wise words and Experiences of Mr. Damon Brooks, Sr., who delivers nugget after nugget on what it takes to be successful in Business. He talks about HOW a busy professional who is already making money in other places, and who’s focused on a Income Stream that they have been building for a matter of months  – can Position themselves in a “new” business opportunity, while remaining focused on what they have been focused on. It’s absolutely exactly what every single person in MLM wants to know, and Mr. Brooks delivers the goods … Get your PEN and PAD ready!!!! Get ready to hit REWIND several times!!!
