Multiple Streams, Dr. Boyce, Trolls and Racism

Those of you following TNG know we are the leaders of Multiple Streams of Income. We’ve been training people on using Multiple Social Networks as well – especially when you are in business. Today, while looking at my Timeline on Twitter I saw that Dr. Boyce Watkins had been Banned from Facebook for 30 days. For those who are unaware of who this is, he is the founder of YourBlackWorld.net He has spent a tremendous amount of time educating and encouraging black people to go into business for themselves.

Because of the role he has taken on, and all of the positive things he is doing specifically for black people in America, he is naturally a target of the Trolls and Racism, which we’ve also not shied away from discussing here at TopNetworkersGroup. We created The Black Folder to also tackle these tough issues that black business people face. Several do not want to use racism as an excuse for why they have failed, and yet because we’re not having this conversation we miss the ‘positive’ aspects of racism.

For the most part, we (as a society) only look at the negatives of racism.

There are so many. Racism is an ugly ideology that has gripped this nation for far too many centuries, and because of that reason it’s deeply ingrained.

So while I’m talking about multiple streams of income, and it may make a ton of sense to others. Unfortunately there will always be people who will look for someone ‘else’ to follow, who has the same or similar message. They’ll decide that they don’t have to listen to me. They’ll tell you my race has nothing to do with it too. I’m sure, it’s not always about race….

multiple streams, dr boyce, trolls and racism

Let’s be real about it, we’re not the only people who promote multiple streams of income.

In fact, you’ve seen me state several times that we base our entire 1mlmsystem on the philosophy taught in the BOOK by Robert G. Allen on the subject. While he spoke about several industries, we took the same concept and applied that to the ‘different industries’ that we can make money in, through the MLM industry (as a whole).

But, we are also having conversations within our organizations that go beyond network marketing. There is so much that is possible when ‘people come together’ – and like most things in this life, in this universe, people coming together can do GOOD – or Bad.

A couple years ago I wrote about the issue with False Flagging on YouTube and also got into ‘why’ they don’t do anything about it.

I’m not going to focus on that here, as you can always go read my ‘reasons’ for it. However, because YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and so many platforms like this use the same approach to policing their communities, things like this are always possible. I mean, we live in the same world where the unfortunate events of Black Wall Street happened. Both the good, and the bad.

Black people showed the world what is capable when black people work together, circulate their dollars, and build a community for and with one another.

This, as Dr. Claud Anderson describes is a positive example of racism. This is black people intentionally economically empowering one another…. Because back then, they lived in a time period where black people had no doubts about whether or not Racism was a problem. They lived during Jim Crow segregation where it was legal to kill black people, burn their businesses, and that’s exactly what happened to black wall street. The world saw the hatred of racism, unleashed and unchecked. They burned and tore down a shining example.

In so many ways this is what racist trolls do with several online platforms today. They seek to destroy any ‘voice’ from black people that might inspire other black people.

This is why I felt it was important not to ignore this aspect of business. Multiple streams of income makes sense. However to ‘really’ benefit togetherness is needed. It’s more than possible for one person to make money in multiple places all by themselves but, when people come together it multiplies the harvest!

Like with the article on False Flagging, I’ve addressed Multiple Streams several times before on this blog. You are welcome to search for those articles.

But, keep in mind how important it is to ‘also’ promote your business on multiple platforms, while also having a platform that YOU Own. TopnetworkersGroup.com is independent of any network marketing company; so is our 1mlmsystem.com.  If any business we’re ‘using’ to help OUR team make money goes out of business, “We” do not go out of business with them.

This is called ‘intelligence’.

While some got upset I’ve addressed the ‘lack’ of intelligent marketers. Several say ‘why do I need to be on Twitter or Instagram… I’m already on facebook!’ … and they say this with pride!

They ignore other outlets like Pinterest. Some of you may remember, TNG was on Tumblr for a brief one, until …. we got shut down (for a still undisclosed reason aka we have NO idea why that happened; typical results of social media and, most likely, false flagging).  I can only guess that someone on Tumblr didn’t like me talking about making money with MLM, Racism in business, or multiple streams of income.  Because as (we’ve also covered) Professor Devin Responded to Gary Vee’s “There are no Gatekeepers”white male privilege still exists in business today;  It’s ‘less likely’ that a white man talking about business will be false flagged as a scam artist. The natural trust factor is built in. As black people, we have to create that kind of ‘outlook’ for ourselves, and it’s not easy to do.

It’s possible though….

Multiple Streams of MLM Income by TNG

Let me put this on the record, as far as multiple streams of MLM income goes.

There has been much debate over the past 5 years over whether or not multiple streams of MLM income is a good idea. Many of the people who are considered to be leaders of the network marketing (MLM) industry have been unified in speaking against it. Most of them have the same message, and that is how you know that they are not really putting serious thought into whether it’s really possible  or not. However they are the ‘leaders’ and so what they say, matters.

People take them at their word – and do not consider whether or not these leaders have ulterior motives for the advice they are handing out so vigorously.  They’ve even got newbies who’ve only been inside of the MLM industry for 3 years repeating their jargon, word for word. They’ll say that it’s too confusing for new people. They’ll tell you that joining multiple MLM programs scatters your focus. I even saw a person today bring up that sometimes people will sign up for a MLM System – but that newbies still cannot focus with everything all in one place.

Seems like that person saw our system and just wanted to speak against anything that ‘might’ promote the idea of multiple streams of MLM income.

Meanwhile.

97% of people in the MLM industry are not making money.

Let me restate that.

It’s important for all of us to understand that right now, 97% of the people in MLM companies are spending more money than they are making.

This statistic has been a reality for my entire career inside of network marketing. That was the stat in 1999. That is the stat in 2016.

As an industry we are not taking this issue seriously enough. Our “leaders” are not taking this issue seriously enough.

Instead they are seeking to maintain the empire that they have built – for themselves. They have no regard for the rest of us in this industry….

The advice to avoid multiple streams of MLM income is misguided at best.

At it’s most malicious level, this advice is what’s keeping the industry where it’s at right now. Unfortunately, we are living in a time when MLM should be creating more and more millionaires and thousandaires and early retirees than ever before. Instead, not much has changed. As the job market continues to worsen, unfortunately MLM remains an option that isn’t ‘very good’ for the masses.

Over the years, I’ve been tackling this topic – as you’ll see Other related posts here in regards to this Topic.

I’ve even made sure to ‘back it up’ – with commentary I shared in a “Famous Facebook Rant on Multiple Streams of Income” – featuring T.D. Jakes –

What I may NOT have done, is make it clear that I Totally understand why so many leaders Speak Against Multiple Streams of MLM Income

They’ve yet to see anyone really pull it off.

There are No “teams” in network marketing that have a Duplicatable system – that Produces People who are Making real money in Multiple MLM companies.

Because the ability to even JOIN Several MLM Companies is pretty new. We’re talking the last 5-7 years when the internet got faster and more programmers brought their talents to the internets.

This has made it more possible than ever before for more and more MLM Companies to get started.

multiple streams of mlm income is possible

Meanwhile,

Because no one is teaching people HOW to take advantage of the industry today – while focusing so heavily against multiple streams of MLM income a vicious cycle has been created that we Must Stop!

The Cycle is, that no matter how hard people Trump this message, people will Continue to join multiple MLM companies. People are actually hitting Ceilings in their earnings, and we’ve seen so many Top MLM earners Leave their company after 4-5 years, to join a Newer company. It’s basically a chance for them to Step into a New situation with all the earnings from their previous venture, and ‘tap into a new market’ with many of their core leaders. You cannot be upset with people for doing this, but who’s really winning in those situations?

So rather than ignore the fact that people are going to ‘attempt’ to juggle multiple MLM opportunities one way or another, we ‘should’ be addressing ‘how to do it right’.

That is Exactly what TopNetworkersGroup.com was created for – so that We – the members of the MLM Industry could create a Plan that others could Follow; that would work!

Multiple streams of MLM Income is not only possible, it’s what will Turn our industry from a Laughing Stock, to a Mutual Stock.

We can make this industry MORE appealing if Leaders will rise up and tell others which way to go!

We created a MLM System to give others our Plan for Successfully creating multiple streams of MLM income. You see….

Even though We Have that Plan; we still need the Right People.

We need Leaders who will go against the Odds, and who will go around and over the Obstacles.  We need leaders who are willing to go where No one in Network Marketing has gone before…

Are You That Leader??
