I’M SICK AND TIRED…
OK not really, I feel amazing lately…
But I am sick and tired of reading posts written by “leaders” bashing everyone else’s hustle.. I was guilty of this a few years ago because I was coming from a lack abundance and leads/sign ups weren’t flowing in my own business so I knew where you’re coming from guys..
Look, as long as you’re getting your money and paying your bills without punching a clock.. that’s all that matters!
People in MLM bashing forex.. people in forex (MLM’s mind you) are bashing old school MLM’s.. which by the way, have paved the way for you guys.. without the old school MLM’s standing the test of time, ya’ll wouldn’t be having the success your having right now..
I see affiliate marketers bashing 3-way calls or home meetings.. some of the same leaders who recruited ME many years ago… VIA a 3 way call!
Yes.. unbelievable.. I know.
I see old school home party networkers bashing online lead generation.. very misinformed.. if you’re gonna do home parties, at least document it.. stream it LIVE on FB so your entire network of 5k+ friends can watch it instead of the 5 people in your living room.. heck pull out your tablet and stream it live on Periscope/Google Hangout.. kill two birds with one stone, work smart not hard!
I love all of you… I don’t care if you’re selling information products, because I create & sell my own info products.. but do you see me bashing IM, Forex, Direct sales to move my books?
I don’t care if you’re doing MLM online or offline.. if you have to bash forex traders (whether they are doing it for the comp plan or the trading skills) to attempt to get people in your own opportunity, you should be ashamed…
…and to the Forex traders bashing MLM/affiliate marketing.. you probably never would have learned Forex or heard about it if you weren’t first introduced to network or affiliate marketing.. so cut the crap.. everyone goes from phase to phase.. physical product, back to a digital product that pays out more up front, then they check their residual in 90 days like oh f*ck nobody is ordering this anymore, guess I should jump back to lotions & potions again..
Why would you want to make yourself look like such hypocrites anyway?? You all will never hear me knock anybody’s hustle.. I may have a few years ago when I was building with losers.. but never again.. I have mad love and respect for anyone out here trying to break free from their job, send their kids to college, or retire their parents.. and if you have to knock how I do it, or how the next guy or gal does it.. that speaks volumes of your own insecurities and the lack of abundance flowing to you..

I MAKE A LOT OF MISTAKES!
For years I left 💰💰 on the table… I’m sure I still do some days but I’m doing my best & focusing on what pays my bills each month and more.. 👌
The first few years after my book came out, I would always drive people to Barnes & Noble’s site because I thought that looked WAY cooler than Amazon.. Just being honest. 😂😂
Little did I know that the royalties were less on their site compared to Amazon, 😱😱 and Amazon takes care of re-targetting & a bunch of other cool stuff I’m not good at just by sending people there.. and when people buy it with other books it shows up as “frequently bought together” etc. which helps..
I didn’t know about this until I got a mentor.. I asked questions.. I read books on how to sell more books & increase margins.. heck I learned how to pay myself more than Amazon royalties pay me each month.. more on that in another post (or book?) 👀👀
Moral of the story is: learn from your mistakes, find a mentor, ask questions, read the books, surrender your ego, humble yourself, take notes, attend the events, invest in yourself, not just money but sweat equity too.. pull your calculators out, make sure you are getting the most bang for your buck my friends!
Don’t let your ego get in the way like I did.. go accomplish everything you’ve always dreamed of!
Thanks for reading… leave your thoughts below.. have you ever made mistakes or left money on the table too?
What did you learn from it and did you fix the problems?
THEY WROTE ME OFF!!!
Yes it’s true… 6 years ago when I started doing MLM all my friends wrote me off!
They said I’d be better off with a college degree so I can secure a good job. For awhile I would question myself… “Are they right? Is earning an income from home impossible? Is college and a career my only hope?”
Some days I wanted to give up, turn off my auto-ship and call it a day.. I would call my sponsor and tell him I quit.. the next thing I know he’s at my door delivering personal development books/CDs.
Little things like that kept me in the game: the amazing people I became friends with, this culture I felt I could grow with, and all the personal development that came along with it.
I started writing my book in 2011 & published it the next year. My friends wrote me off yet again, and told me to stop putting my heart and soul into something silly like this.
At that point though I was in too deep… there was no going back! I had invested far too many hours and dollars into my business, growing my network, traveling to promote my new book..
Here we are 4 years later.. all those same friends are tired of seeing people holding the book they once mocked.. asking for a free copy because they don’t get paid til next week.. silly isn’t it?
Moral of the story is, don’t give up!
If friends & family aren’t doubting you yet, you’re not working hard enough..
If friends aren’t calling you crazy and questioning you, you need to GO CRAZY!
Stay consistent on posting.. make the phone calls.. send the FB messages.. mail the samples.. speak on the conference calls.. host the events.. drive 3 hours for a one on one.. just do whatever it takes! Prove the naysayers wrong, don’t give them the satisfaction of seeing YOU quit!
Love you guys.. appreciate all that you do!

Hey guys, just a quick update for everyone: I was able to get my book, Create Your Own Economy setup for sale via the Square app and site!
This is a really great tool that is gonna help us get the book into thousands of more people’s hands!
Before it was only available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and I was offering my bulk discounts via Paypal… but with the new site I setup on Square I was able to offer the bulk discounts for an even lower rate, with FREE Shipping like always!
This is awesome because PayPal and FB messenger app would only let people order bulk via debit cards, so with square you can use debit OR credit!
Check out my new Square website and grab a few copies of my book!
Appreciate you guys! All of the book giveaways and pictures you guys are uploading are really speeding things up… can’t wait to see where the movement goes this year!
With Network Marketing I realized I could get 1 person that agreed with me on why I was doing what I was doing, and I could teach them by that example.
If you want to harvest, you must plant a seed.
Look guys.. the world is hungry for friendship, relationship… an improved quality of life.. so w/network marketing, isn’t it interesting, people introducing people to the product via word of mouth, friends be getting friends.. and I see everyone in business with me as a friend.
I’m always thinking way in the future.. trying to stay ahead of everyone else..
My vision is huge for this industry.. and I hope you all join me for the ride of your lifetime whether you’re in my company or not.
Let’s stand together and improve the public perception of our industry!
Let’s lead with the value of our product not hype, fast money, and all the stuff that gives our industry a bad name to begin with..
We have an AMAZING industry, so let’s show people what we have to offer them!

Do you write amazing content, post sexy selfies, or upload epic videos to your Facebook, just to have your friends scroll right past it?
Now if you’re not a marketer then this post doesn’t really matter… if you’re just posting selfies/viral videos like everyone else on FB, guess what… you will be ignored!
Here are a few tips I’ve learned over the years to get more likes, comments, shares AKA eyeballs on your posts… if you’re a marketer and you are using to build awareness of your new book or product, you want all of your FB friends or fans to see EVERYTHING you post!
- The first rule is pretty basic. If you don’t want people to ignore your posts, you can’t ignore their posts either! When you scroll your newsfeed, like and comment on relevant posts. If someone got a new job, started a business, got engaged, be engaging! (No pun intended lol) But if you want people to pay attention to your posts, pay attention to their posts.
- Loosen up a bit. If you are talking to your Facebook friends in a tone that makes them feel like they are only a customer or client, they won’t respond to your posts. Use their first name, say “YOU” etc… but focus on the people not your product or service… use attraction to pull them to ask questions about your products.
- Make new connections. If people are frequently engaging on your FB posts, you want them to continue engaging with you for year to come! I typically message them and say something simple like “Hey there just wanted to reach out & let you know I really appreciate you supporting my posts everyday.. looking forward to your future posts as well!” Just something simple like that to break the ice.
- Use images that catch the eye, invest in graphic design for your photos and fliers. Use PicMonkey or similar sites/apps where you can add font. This is great to add quotes, your domain name, or edit the picture.
- Ask your audience questions. This can be done thru private FB messages when you are getting to know a new FB friend. By asking questions, you learn what problems your target audience has. Then write an article like this, or record a video that solves your audiences problem. That is how you get paid! Solving problems. Bonus tip- Ask questions in a FB post.. this will obviously increase the amount of people who comment and engage. When people like/comment on your posts, they are more likely to see your next post.
Just remember what Gary V says, Jab Jab Jab, right hook… what he means by that is give, give, give… value, something for free, then hit them with the right hook (ask for sale)
Hope this article gave you some ideas to get more eyeballs on your future Facebook posts!

Remember the ‘social’ in social media… it’s all about engaging with others.
Treating it like a pissing contest with your old sponsor, people who quit yo team, ex’s, or people in other companies doesn’t count as being social..
Instead just cheer your competitors on and get back to dominating!
Only post when you have something inspiring, important, or valuable to share w/everyone.. don’t just post to “get likes” or “generate a lead or sale” because people can smell desperation a mile away..
Remember folks: “People don’t care how much you know until they knows how much you care.” -So engage on their posts.. get to know them.. follow up w/them until you are blue in the face or they block you Lol..
That’s all I got! Until next time, enjoy this extra sexy Joe Stewart selfie! 😀
Also be sure to buy my book here!
PS: I don’t just post on FB about being ‘social’ because it’s the “cliche” “marketer” thing to do… I truly enjoy getting to know each and every one of you guys I’ve made friends with the past few years.

Jeunesse Bought Out Monavie aka MYNT.. MYNT & Jeunesse Merge
Rumors have been floating around Facebook the past few days that Jeunesse Bought Out Monavie aka MYNT. I went over to current MYNT (formerly MonaVie) top earners, Steve & Gina Merritt’s Facebook page to see that they are having a very important webinar tonight at 7:30pm with a “big announcement”. I am assuming that the big announcement is that their company MYNT was bought out or has merged over to Jeunesse.. almost like Numis Network and World Ventures did a few years back.
This comes to no surprise to me for quite a few reasons:
For one, we all know Mona Vie sales have been way down the past few years.. ever since Brig Hart left and they appointed a new CEO it has kinda gone downhill no offense to any of current MonavVe MYNT leaders.. they just lost that “fire” they used to have. MonaVie branded cars used to be all over South Florida where I live… haven’t seen any Monavie cars or t-shirts in years..(Not even MYNT).
On top of that, there was a video posted on the Monavie corporate page of their CEO talking about their struggles and some debt they were in. SO the whole news that Jeunesse is buying them out.. makes sense.
What about Jeunesse?
Well.. it just became public knowledge a few weeks ago for people not in the know, that Jeunesse has been paying leaders to come over to their company and bring their teams for awhile now. Up front bonuses, contracts, positions near the top of the Jeunesse binary comp plan with “300k volume” under you… lol. Sounds enticing… I know a lot of people have taken these deals or positions in the company.. and although I wish everybody had to pay the initial start up cost and build organically, some people are given special deals and up front money… I have worked for every dime I have ever earned so I can’t relate to the contracts or being “given” volume or teams lol.. but to each his own, obviously anybody who was offered money to join is a talented network marketer to begin with, and people in sports, colleges and every other industry pays recruitment commissions… but you can’t just pay a starter fee and take part in the NFL or college football, so there is a fine line in the sand… just my opinion though as this is my blog.
I guess Jeunesse started thinking bigger… why buy leaders when you can just buy entire network marketing companies?
I am curious to hear what a lot of top MonaVie or MYNT leaders have to say about the transition, as well as field leaders in Jeunesse.
Here is what Monavie MYNT Top earners Steve & Gina Merritt had to say after the announcement had been made:
“It’s Official! The Mynt-MonaVie Leadership Call just finished and we have a new strategic partner. This is the Biggest Acquisition in the history of our industry! Gina and I are MORE excited about the potential and future of our Company than we’ve ever been. We have been working together with field and corporate leaders for quite some time to make this happen. We thought it would be done sooner but with a company as big as ours it takes time to find the right strategic partner.
If you are serious about your future be sure you are getting facts for the right source. When these merges take place so many people get mixed up in drama and rumors. If Steve and Gina are confident that because of this we can now create history by breaking our own records you should be as well. This is a very, very exciting day!
Here is what the Fastest Growing Company in our industry was in Mynt-MonaVie. They love our history, records in the industry, loyalty, leadership, commitment, passion, energy, excitement, ability to re-invent ourselves with Mynt and of course our Billion Dollar MonaVie Brand.
Here is a few ways they can help us as Mynt-MonaVie moves forward. Because we are expanding so rapidly with our product lines, and launching Mynt is so many countries we will receive help in investing in brand awareness, marketing, product development, bigger production and events, expansion in other markets, and most importantly put us on the offense.
Questions you might be having. Are we still Mynt-MonaVie can we keep our culture? Of course that’s why they sought after and invested in us! Do we keep our products? Yes they stay the same and of course we are always adding additional innovative ones. Are we Jeunesse? No! We are Mynt-MonaVie they are behind the scenes helping orchestrate or vision. Does Comp Plan Change? No unless we decide to add MORE Incentives! Does the genealogy of the tree stay the same? Yes! Even though there was some messaging that was confusing all companies will stay separate and operate business as usual. More importantly all lines of sponsorships will remand the same as well as our tree genealogy.
Remember there will be plenty of rumors going around of people wanting to create doubt in your mind. This always happens when an opportunity gets better. We want you to know that our prayers have been answered. We are confident, and MORE excited than ever. We encourage you to you stay calm and focused. Time could not be better for you to achieve your goals and dreams with the Mynt-MonaVie Opportunity. The question now is what are you going to do with the opportunity that has just been handed to you? We are already out talking to people and doing meetings and encourage you to do the same. Have an amazing week! Fired Up, Steve and Gina”
At least on a public setting like Facebook they are excited… hope everything works out for all MYNT and Jeunesse reps moving forward as the transition takes place over the next few months and years ahead.
To your success…

Joe Budden WakeUpNow Rumors? ***Shocking Truth REvealed***
From Wikipedia: Joe Budden (born August 31, 1980) is an American hip hop recording artist from Jersey City, New Jersey, who, in addition to being a solo artist, is a member of the American hip hop super group Slaughterhouse, alongside fellow rappers Royce da 5’9″, Joell Ortiz, and Crooked I.
There was a photo circulating around my Facebook news feed, as well as MLM/Network marketing based groups shown below:
Thanks to Jamie Gill for exposing this photoshopped image of Joe Budden, you can view the original post here.
It seems as though some marketers were using this photo as a way to attract new customers or distributors and prove the legitimacy of WakeUpNow.
Now don’t take this article the wrong way, I actually like WakeUpNow as a customer not an IBO. I drink the coffee and plan to try their new energy drinks soon called THUNDER Awaken or something like that. WUN is a great company where people can come make roughly $500 per month (after their $99/mo fee) with a small team of only 12 people… you won’t find a payout like that in any other network marketing company believe me I’ve looked. The little guy can definitely succeed here if they put in some work.
Unfortunately marketers like this are giving the company a bad reputation. A lot of WakeUpNow IBOs use aggressive recruiting tactics and have cross recruited hundreds (if not thousands) of distributors from companies like Vemma and World Ventures. This has started a “turf war” we’ll call it, and distributors from each company have publicly bashed each other on social media sites such as Facebook/YouTube/Twitter you name it. Due to all of this, CEO of Vemma BK Boreyko has actually went as far as hiring Len Clements of Inside Network Marketing to write a lengthy article about WUN. Although he listed the pros and cons, it is all part of the war between WakeUpNow and Vemma… period.
Here is what Kevin Thompson the MLM Attorney had to say in response to BK Boreyko:
It seems as though the only leader on both sides who wanted to clear the air and make peace with all the companies involved was Seemore Green (Eric Turner) who is the top income earner in WakeUpNow. He is earning a whopping $114k per month after only being involved with WakeUpNow for a year now.
I think all companies mentioned above need to get their act together. They all have great products, fair compensation plans, and fantastic leadership in their companies, there is no need to run smear campaigns to try and bring each other down. Let’s face it… Vemma isn’t going anywhere, WUN isn’t going anywhere, and competition is healthy for business! Do you ever see Pepsi and Coca Cola talking shit about each other? NO!
I don’t know why IBO’s feel the need to lie about celebrities joining their respective MLM. When I join an MLM, I join it because I will personally use the product every month and enjoy it enough to where I would tell others about it. I wouldn’t join ViSalus just because Hulk Hogan and 50 other celebrities are on board are you freaking kidding me? WHO CARES!
If you’re a network marketing professional, act like it!
See you guys at the bank!

Hey everyone, Joe here!
Sorry for the delay in posting. If we are connected on Facebook you probably know I was up in New York for a few days visiting the city, and doing some work on my next book with my co-author Mr. Terrence Freeman.
My other business partner Korey Niese out in St. Louis and I are putting the finishing touches on the bonuses we are giving away to people who join us in our respective ventures.
This is a trick I learned from Darren Little a few years back. If people have to pay $49 for your product/affiliate status, you want to put together bonuses worth 10X more than what they pay. People can’t say no whether they are focused on their respective biz or not. Many will buy our products for the bonus alone, and never log in their back office.
We are okay with that.
Others will catch the vision, enjoy the personal performance products and stick around for life simply because of the VALUE. They won’t have to be rock star recruiters, or paid ad gurus… all they have to do is giveaway bonuses, point and direct people to a video aka be a ‘tour guide.’
Unlike most marketers these days… no fear tactics needed here, just value.
Those on the outside will be looking in at us like:
“How do they turn profit with giving away ALL THAT FOR FREE?”
Gurus will hate us, leaders will lock arms & noobies will win here.
That is when this gets fun!
We will be giving away Korey Niese’s Twitter Marketing Domination product, my Facebook Marketing Concepts DVD, a copy of my book ‘Create Your Own Economy‘ along with a professionally branded graphic design of your choice. Most people get banners for their blog or Facebook cover, other people might want a banner ad to place on the side of their blog and so on.
We wanted to give people a broad range of courses and options they can choose with their bonuses.
This will put money in your pocket, and your new customers will not only appreciate you for giving away so much stuff, but they will continue to buy from you time and time again because of their first positive giveaway experience with you. I have run promotions like this countless times where I giveaway free paperback copies of my book to the next 2-3 people who join my team… it creates a sense of urgency, and it’s fun!
It makes you look like a cool marketer who’s not only in it for the money. Your prospects will be like “Hmm these guys are giving away social media courses, Free books, Free graphic design work, they must have money to be able to do all of this cool stuff!”
Your prospect WILL NOT join you if they feel you are broke. What vibes are you giving them with your Facebook statuses? Are you coming off as broke, desperate for sign ups?
If that’s the case, latch on to what I am teaching here and start leading with value folks… it’s called ATTRACTION MARKETING for a reason!
If you just take the time to create some training courses and videos for your team, package it up into a HUGE product bundle that looks very valuable and expensive that they can’t get anywhere else, they will be happy to join your team because of the VALUE.
No value=no sign ups.
See you at the bank…

I got a mobile alert from David Wood yesterday that was inviting all EN affiliates to a special heart to heart call with an update about the other co-founder of Empower Network, Mr. David Sharpe. About a month ago, Dave Sharpe posted a Facebook status sharing with the world that he had gotten Hepatitis C while he was sharing needles many years ago when he was addicted to heroine.
This had been the “monkey on his back” for the last 6 years, and it was time for him to not only come clean with the world, but to everybody in his company as well. He also decided to step down as co-founder of the Empower Network, so he could fully focus on getting better, and spending time with his loved ones.
On the conference call, Sharpe talked about the wild ride he has been on the past 2 1/2 years as co-founder of Empower Network, one of the fastest growing internet marketing/software companies on the planet, paying out over $100 million dollars in the last 2 1/2 years alone… something most companies only DREAM about.
He said “I’m either all in, or I’m all out… and at the time being I can’t be all in as a leader of Empower because I need to focus on my health and treatment.”
After the announcement, thousands of Empower Network affiliates rallied around David Sharpe in support. Hundreds of people changed their Facebook profile pictures to photos of them with Sharpe.
I am sure this big announcement scared a few affiliates maybe new to the company, but for everybody who has been there since the beginning knows that they laid a solid foundation for Empower Network to be around for years to come. It appears as though David Wood will remain on as founder, along with their newly appointed CEO Mr. Jonathan Cronstedt.
I am praying for a smooth recovery for Dave Sharpe… he’s a good guy and although made mistakes in his past, nobody deserves this.
I hope you have enjoyed this post, and send some love to Dave Sharpe on Facebook and let him know you care!

I put together a quick 28 minute training video where you can sit over my shoulder, and see what it is I do for my marketing routine on a day to day basis to build my affiliate marketing customer base.
I go over some YouTube strategies, Facebook, as well as finding other network marketers on Google. I will be recording some other training videos for you guys where I call people who requested information on my business, as well as cold calling other network marketers I find on the internet.
I practice what I preach and would never tell you guys to do something that I am not comfortable doing… then again I am a freaking hustler and will call anybody from a Burger King employee to the top guy in Amway… they are all just another human on the other end of the telephone so I have no reason to be scared. Some people are afraid of cold calls and that is okay, I will teach you other ways to connect with people.
I hope you enjoyed this quick video on how I make sales for my primary business everyday.
I will see you on the beaches of the world…
