The 5% Solution

Imagine a world dominated by Networkers. What if the 5% of all North Americans in Network Marketing began working to their full potential?

Just for a moment…imagine that brave new world. Pharmaceutical companies would suddenly be forced to conduct meaningful research into legitimate vaccines and new antibiotics because vitamins and supplements would eliminate the need for many symptom-treating bogus drugs that cure nothing. Were the masses exposed to legitimate preventions and educators no longer paid bounties to put elementary school students on Ritalin, many big-pharma profits would dry up.

Lobbyists would have to leave Washington and find real work which would free the government up to focus on legitimate social challenges like health care and balancing the budget…you know, kind of like all the E.U. countries did years ago.

Children would be able to spend more time with their parents, given the elimination of multiple jobs and the resultant time freedom. Most products and services would be far superior to the stuff being sold through traditional retail outlets. Gas consumption would drop precipitously with a decrease in rush hour drives. Of course that change would impact global warming.

None of us would face the middle class nightmares of outsourcing or downsizing because the distribution industry is immune to both. Prisons would gradually decrease in inmate populations as more and more common people no longer had to rob stores in order to support their addictions. Most would have enough money for treatment or to support their habits without being forced into illegal behaviors. Frivolous lawsuits would decline gradually as people became aware of how much faster and easier they could achieve wealth through productivity rather than tort theft.

Obesity would begin an immediate decline as would diabetes when more families had the financial ability to replace fast-food diets with more expensive and nutritious meals. Additionally more families would have time to eat at home together which creates another myriad of positive social outcomes. Automobile deaths would diminish rapidly as fewer people felt the obsessive need to drive and talk on their cell phones simultaneously. In fact, the need for virtual connections would diminish as people achieved the time freedom and ability to forge real face-to-face relationships.

Terrorism would slow down and charities would prosper simply because most Networkers are intelligent and caring and politics would gradually be forced to mirror these attitudes. To be certain, radical change would occur gradually and North America would be returned to an earlier era of entrepreneurial spirit, critical thinking and golden-rule business.

Sometimes when I share those honest opinions with non-networkers, I’m considered at best, biased and at worst, delusional. But people in our industry just smile and agree. That’s because people in our industry know I’m right and folks outside our industry don’t have a clue about the dynamics of a business in which the primary objective is “people helping people.” Before I joined our industry, my life was a nightmare. For the last 21 years it’s been a dream-come-true. And not only did my life change for the better but my prosperity and time freedom directly impacted the lives of a dozen others. That’s why I can say with certainty that if the 5% of us who currently participate in Networking were to achieve the kind of wealth I did, at least 50% of North America would benefit. That’s why we created The Holy Grail of Network Marketing for all our associates in this marvelous industry.

And one final thought… if you can come up with a better way to return North America to its former grandeur, by all means, express it. Because history tends to repeat itself and at this precise moment in history we are in the identical state of affairs of Rome, Great Britain, Greece, and The Netherlands prior to their decline and fall as world military and economic powers. The growing gap between rich and poor, our huge international debt, our military overreach in obscure missions, the cultural and economic decay and decline in educational standards all preceded empire declines. That can’t be debated.

Of course my critics can debate my idea that Network Marketing could save North America, but so far none have been willing to do so in public. Maybe some day!

In the meantime, I will continue to help everyone who will listen. Remember, you are worth at least $100,000 a month and it’s time to go to work. Send this information to everyone you know. Those who have ears will hear.

No Thank You, Mr. Gates

Bill Gates has an interesting
description of what we should do and how we should live. I think it’s only
fitting that we all look closely at his concept of values. He’s not only the
wealthiest man in the world, but he lives by a philosophy that recently caused
Microsoft to lose a 90 million dollar lawsuit to their own employees. In 1991
he and his leaders downgraded 12,000 loyal workers and executives to temp
status so Microsoft wouldn’t have to provide them benefits. It took those employees
nearly a decade to win back their status, but during the downgrade they lost millions
in stock options and many are very bitter. The $100 million the court ordered
Microsoft to pay those employees was minor compared to what they could have
earned had they been valued.

 
Gates says one should, “position
oneself in a network of possibilities.” Unfortunately, that also describes
Alzheimer’s and dementia. According to computer programmer and author Ellen
Ullman, “People have become nonpersons who walk around pretending to say and do
all the right things but whose lives are completely empty. We lead
machine-centered lives full of automated tellers, portable phones, pagers,
keyboards and mice. There is constant talk of teamwork but it’s all phony. In
reality we are all creatures swimming along in puddles of time destined for
obesity and trivia.” I would add the opinion that values and ethics are down
the toilet.

 
Folks, listen closely. I’m not a
cynic, I’m a critical thinker who honestly believes that Network Marketing is
the last bastion of healthy capitalism. We cannot be downsized or outsourced
and our world revolves around relationships rather than machines. But we must
all practice a simple rule of excellence if we are to avoid the insanity of
traditional business.

I call it Yarnell’s Law of 6 3 2.

Do one thing at a time.
Do it right.
Finish it.

Forget about multiple streams of
income and make a ten year commitment to the company you love. Don’t be
scattered, and for your family’s sake, turn off the machines for a couple of
hours a day and talk to real prospects and customers. Remember, every time you
change companies you start from scratch. And every time you start from scratch,
you are acting like a temp. In a world characterized by constant change and
fluidity, nothing can be taken very seriously and failure becomes a regular
event. The so-called prosperity of the 90’s was really a winner-take-all greedy
era in which only the upper 10% made all the big money. Network Marketing is a
system of relationship building that creates organizations of human beings with
deep reasons to care about each other.

 
We are the luckiest people in the
world, but we need to remember that our world is built around other human
beings and not machines. Those Networkers who earn the most money are
consistently building the most relationships with real people. Turn off your
machines and turn on your charm for a couple of hours each day. You’ll be glad
you did.

Remember, we aren’t middle-class
temps in some silly multinational corporation. We are independent distributors
who have no cap on earnings and no way to be terminated or marginalized. But we
must remain committed to people and focused on relationships…not machines and
binary code. No thank you Mr. Gates.
