Who is Tony Guthrie and Why Should I Read his Stuff?
What my life is becoming is something I would not have imagined back in 2008 when I first entertained the idea of network marketing and online business.
The key to my recent successes is directly related to the fact that I have aligned myself with countless other people who have a vision to change their financial lives. These people are partners with me in one of the most exciting online marketing systems in existence today. My senior business partners (and myself to some degree) have coached and trained thousands of others on how to leverage the power of social media to generate leads, and get sales and sign-ups for their home businesses.
My senior partners have been recognized in the industry as top trainers and they are literally only a phone call or text away from me.
But back in 2008 when I first joined Network Marketing, things were very different…
Regular Guy | Not a Guru
I am not an internet guru nor am I trying to be. I have been heavily involved in online marketing since 2008. I have tried many approaches in several different business types. I have been involved in several network marketing companies that were what I term as the “typical” companies. What I mean by typical is that they were mostly very hypy companies that played on people's hopes and dreams. The marketing approaches promoted by the leadership simply fails to produce results for over 90% of people (regular folks) who attempt it. Look at any Income Disclosure Statement of ANY network marketing company and you will see that well over 90% of active distributors are making meaningless amounts of income, if any.
Not a Negative Nancy | Optimistic is my Middle Name
People involved in network marketing and other online businesses view people like me as a Negative Nancy. I really don't blame them. They are only trying to preserve the integrity of the industry.
The reality is that I worked diligently in every business I tried. I wanted to make money and see financial success. Maybe some people are Negative Nancy's, but I wasn't and still am not. I have a diligent work ethic. I promoted replicated websites through various online channels. I created Facebook Fan pages, groups, and built websites to promote the products and the opportunity. I purchased lead generation programs (at great expense). I sat in on boring 2 hour training webinars, took copious notes and implemented EVERY strategy that I could. I did dozens of other things as well. None of these efforts produced meaningful results.
And HERE IS WHY!
To be successful in network marketing basically involves NOT doing what the company leadership trains you to do. In fact, doing just the opposite is a key to success. You do NOT need to chase friends and family members and get them to sign-up. All you have to do is become a go-to person in your chosen niche. You want people to come to YOU rather than YOU chasing THEM! And I will show you exactly how to do that. It took me YEARS to learn this truth. You don't have to spend years learning the hard way as I did.
Hard Worker | Professional History
I am NOT going to toot my own horn or pat myself on the back (at least not intentionally). But people in this industry LOVE to say that people who leave their company are lazy cry-babies with bad attitudes. But most people who join a company are quite accomplished in the “real” business world. I have earned a Masters degree and a PhD. I worked my backside off doing so. Then I entered the world of university teaching (teaching over 18 years) and headed up the doctoral program of a Christian University for 7 years. I'm sorry but lazy cry-babies don't do what I have done. And they don't do what YOU have done either.
People leave the industry because company training does not work!
Further, most people I know who have entered the network marketing industry are quiet astute and accomplished in life and/or business. To say that the 90+% of people who leave a company within a year of joining are just lazy cry-babies is about as arrogant as it gets. YOU are reading this for a reason that only you know. But it is likely because you are astute and want to do your homework. I'm glad you are here.
Ok, So Why Did I Create this Website? | My Motive?
It is very simple. I learned the truth about this industry the hard way: through years of HUGE expense, experience, and frustration. I want to encourage people who are considering joining the industry to get an education that I wish was available to me years ago. I am asking people (like you) to do your homework before you join the network marketing industry. Just read as much as you can on this site. Doing so will give you tons of information you will not get from industry leaders and possibly save you thousands of dollars and years of frustration.
I honestly think that network marketing offers people a chance to build their own future and take control of their lives (it is working for me). But you have to see beyond the hype and understand that there are some non-hypy companies out there. They are easier on your psyche' and easier to earn money with. The “typical” company recruiting and sales systems are VERY challenging and require time commitments that you are not told about by industry leaders. And worse, THEY JUST DON'T WORK. So, if you are determined and willing to learn then you can indeed build a business. I will show you the right way!
