Success University Scam or Real?

The Success University story started in January 2004. Led by President and CEO Matt Morris, Success University was created to change the world through education and personal development.
On the internet today, you see slogans stating Success University Scam! People wonder if that is true?

So let me help you answer that question. Let’s describe what a scam is. As stated in Wikipedia, a scam is an attempt to defraud a person or group by gaining confidence. Does Success University practice this deception? Let’s look at the company and products they offer.

First, what is Success University? They are a network marketing company that offers its products via a network marketing/direct sales structure. Here lies the first misconception most people have. As soon as the term ‘network marketing’ is used, the first thought that comes to mind is “here’s another get rich quick scam”. Yes, I will agree that many network companies are based on false promises but you can’t stop at the front door. Once you enter, you will get a better picture of the business. Please refer to an article we published on February 13, 2009 titled “So, You Want to Get Into The Network Marketing Business?” This article will guide you through choosing the right network marketing business that fits your needs. Now ask yourself, is Success University scam or real?

Let’s keep looking further.
Second, what is the actual product of Success University? In a Success University forum, I read a statement that describes their product perfectly. Success University brings you the most advanced online courses on success over assembled. With some of the greatest minds in personal achievement like Les Brown, Robert Allen, Jay Abraham, Cynthia Kersey, Jim Rohn, Brian Tracey, Zig Ziglar and many many more, it’s no wonder that Success University online became the #1 most visited personal development company their first year. Now ask yourself, is Success University scam or real?

Let’s keep looking further.
Third, is there really Success University training? Not only is there training, but we offer top notch mentoring. Our team meets twice weekly via web conference to cover all areas of your Success University business. Our motto is, “Failure is NOT an option”. We take every members business serious. All we ask in return is that you are teachable and have the desire to change your life. Our team has helped thousands succeed and you can too. Ask yourself again, is Success University scam or real?

Lastly, is there Success University income potential? With Success University, they have put together a “Learn and Earn” program. Their incredible pay plan offers a monthly residual income along with two weekly bonus plans. In fact, there are top producers in our company that are making 6 figures a month! Please refer to residual income opportunity for a detailed explanation.

Surely you dont still have to ask… is Success University scam or real?

After this Success University review, you should have a clear image of the Success University opportunity hundreds of thousands of people are enjoying in over 180 countries every day.

Success UniversityGreater Income Through Education

I’m sure you know the correlation between education and greater income. Studies show that a person with a degree will earn twice as much as a person with only a high school diploma. So how can you increase your income without going to school and earning a degree? Very simply, educate yourself in your specific profession and make your knowledge valuable to others.

Personal Development Education
Let me explain what I am getting at here with a few simple examples. Think about McDonalds, how does an employee move from making French fries to running the cash register? They learn a new skill, advance to a new position and earn a greater income. How about your local auto mechanic, the more certifications he has, the more work he can perform on a vehicle which in turn will make him more money. Take network marketing. How is it that some people succeed while others don’t? They use the same system, get the same training, yet one person will excel while the other will quit. It’s all very simple, educate yourself and make your knowledge valuable to others.

Welcome to Success University
Webucation is a term classified in Forbes Magazine by the world’s most influential business guru Peter Drucker. In his interview, he stated that online education would be the next great wealth opportunity. In an $8 billion industry, Success University brings you the most advanced online courses ever assembled and became the #1 most visited personal development company on the internet today surpassing Donald Trump and Tony Robbins. Through education, Success University is determined to help people all over the world achieve greater success in life.

Residual Income Opportunity
Another amazing Success University opportunity is what they call “learn and earn”. Students have the ability to promote Success University to others and earn passive income. With 2 weekly pay plans and a monthly payout as well, Success University has also become a dominate force in the network marketing industry. How would you like to learn how you can retire in one year and earn a full time income from home?

Join Success University!
A Success University business is not only rewarding, but life changing as well. Imagine learning from the world’s greatest minds in all areas of personal development; financial management, real estate, sales, motivation, communication, health and fitness, network marketing, internet marketing and more. I invite you to review Success University and see all the benefits we have to offer.

No matter what your career choice may be, start educating yourself today and gain knowledge that is valuable to others. With Success University, YOU can gain a greater income through excellent success education!

Success is a funny thing!
Those that enjoy success often don’t talk about it and those that do not are somehow authorities on how to achieve it….lol

This is the Real Deal on Success!

What ever you would like to know about Success, in any area, can be found at Success University! Here are a few things that you dont often get told about Success. This excerpt is from Brian Tracey – a Success University Faculty member and world renowned expert on all things to do with achieiving ultimate Success!

What Nobody Tells You About Success
By: Brian Tracy

Want to get that dream job or turn your passion into a business and become a highly successful entrepreneur? Want to be able to afford a dream home for you and your family?

I’ve been fortunate over the years and now live in sunny San Diego, not to far from the beautiful Pacific. In some people’s eyes I’ve made it. How can you realize your dreams and make them a reality?

I’d like to share the fastest way to get a job or make your business flourish, even in this economy.

The Truth — About Success
When I graduated from college, I thought I was smart. I’d aced most of my courses, and figured I could easily hit pay dirt in the business world. Then, harsh reality hit.

When I started in sales, I’d call and leave my name and my company name. Then I’d wait and wait and most of the time, I’d never get a call back. And if I did talk to someone, more often than not, I’d get the brush off.

It turned out that no matter how much I thought of myself, my company, and our services, no one cared and it was killing my career.

The Success Secret You Need To Know
If you want to succeed, you need to realize the following. As marketing expert Charlie Cook explained to me, “No one cares who you are until they know how you can help them.”

That simple idea changed my life.

Change your life too.

If you want to get people’s attention — in a few words tell them how you can help them — then they’ll want to talk with you.

Once people know how you can help them, they’ll be hungry to hear from you, eager to talk with you. Getting the conversation started is the most important step to being successful.

Without an easy way to get that initial conversation going, you’ll always be frustrated, no matter how smart or capable you are. That applies to everything from getting job interviews, getting a response to your cold calls, emails, web marketing, direct marketing, and any other way you reach out and try to stimulate a response.

What You Need
What’s the biggest mistake you can make if you want to be successful? Using a label. Telling people you’re looking for a job, or you want to be a lawyer, a trainer or sell solar panels. That’s what most people do, and it’s why they don’t ever make as much as they could.

Whether you’re looking for a job or looking for a sale, you need to do the same thing: give people a reason to talk with you. That’s what a good marketing message will do.

Which Path To Success Is Right For You
1. Use the same approach that everyone else is using. Stick with your name, the usual labels, etc. Do this, and your resume or your marketing will blend in with everyone else’s. You won’t stand a chance of ever getting noticed.

2. Assume that since you’re the smartest and best-qualified person for the job or that since you’ve been in business the longest, you’re a shoe-in and employers or prospects will instantly notice you and want to talk with you.

Sorry to tell you this, but WAKE UP! There are tons of smart people on the planet and tons of competitors. If you’re expecting others to recognize how brilliant you or your services are, you might as well give up looking for work right now.

3. Discover the proven system for getting attention and jump-starting your success by using personal development to excel every area of your life.

When you get it, you’ll find exactly how to get attention and get the conversation going, so you can land the job you want, the client you need, and ultimately, make more money.

With option three you’ll be using a time tested strategy for success. One that you can use to make ten times as much in half the time.

Make more money in a month than most people do in a year!

The Best Way to Achieve Your Dreams
If personal success is achieving your dreams, Success University’s system will help you get there.

Want to discover how much more successful you could be and how much more money you could be making?

You can put this proven money-making system to use within minutes, and start to increase your income while slashing your working hours.

Interested in going from dreams to reality? Take action now!

Well that was from an article by Brian Tracey!

I just love Brian Tracey’s no nonsense approach and dialogue!
When Matt Morris, the founder of Success University was adding Faculty members to the Board – it’s very plain to see why Brian Tracey made the cut!

The fact that Brian Tracey embraces his position at Success University is a first class testimony to the quality of personal development and Success education that is made available to Success University students.

You too can have access to Brian Tracey and many other world leaders, 24/7 at your comvenience!

Let us help you!

Today I will give you my take on the Success University Affiliate Program and my Success University Review.

Success University is my top choice for a legitimate home based business. You can read about the company here but I wanted to just write a review and give a brief picture as to the affiliate program available within Success University.

Let me say straight off the bat though, that I love the self development aspect of Success University so much – that I would still be reviewing this online University even if there was no affiliate program associated with it!

I am very passionate about self development! They don’t teach you how to create inner and outer fortune at school, now do they? Well to answer that and give you an idea of my passion for the self development subject, it might interest you to know that the private college my children attend – DO now offer a course in personal fulfillment and wealth creation after my persistence and determination paid off, and an excellent and now mandatory course was implemented with my help and instigation!

OK….there’s my good deed for the decade……lol
Getting back to Success University………

Success University is as it sounds…….a University for Success!
Just like with any Online University, you are able to study your courses of choice in the comfort of your own home (or where ever you have access to a computer)

To give you an idea of what its all about, I would say that Success University is an intensive education in the principals of success! You enroll for Success University and are able to study many courses that are provided by world leaders in their individual area’s of expertise.

The courses available are regularly updated and feature world famous speakers such as Jim Rohn, Mike Filsaime, Byrd Baggett, Brian Tracy, Zig Ziglar and the list goes on and on and on! (and ON!)

There are many topics covered in the educational courses available. Some topics are: personal development, internet marketing, finance, sales, real estate, communication, leadership, negotiation and plenty more too!

I have been very impressed with both the quality of speakers and content of the courses.

Ok, this is supposed to be a Success University Review, mind you I could preach the benefits of the actual learning center all day long!

After enrolling in Success University, you are presented with a powerful income opportunity that centers around you offering free education to others. Well that’s pretty easy! Who wouldn’t want to improve themselves with such quality learning and for Free?
As with any affiliate program – you make commissions by referring others to enroll in Success University.

The compensation plan is quite attractive but a bit beyond the scope of this review (read about the Success University Compensation Plan here!) – needless to say there are a heap of people making HUGE money from Success University!

You can check out the compensation plan whilst engaging in the 14 day trial or read about it from the tab or link above.

You are given many back office tools to help you promote the Success University opportunity. I primarily use this special offer to provide personal and educational business training and I also use the home page or Success University main page to attract attention. Both work very well.

You can also become a part of an Exclusive Team Momentum Training System which allows you to copy the top Success University Income achievers. You also have access to several banners like the one at the top of this page and lots of other promotional materials as well.

You are not tied to Success University in any way and if you don’t like it – don’t do it! (you can cancel at any time) but Im sure that if you explore both the education and income opportunity available, you will see its a no-brainer (as they say….lol)

Success University costs about $50 per month for your enrollment, but before you sign up for that you can do a $2 14 day trial (its really a Free trial with a $2 donation to the Feed the Children Fund)

For your $50 per month, you get several bonus products on signup including, but not limited to Jim Rohn’s Success Plan and a copy of “Think and Grow Rich” by Napolean Hill, unlimited access to all the learning materials and courses and you also get a package in the mail each month that consists of DVD’s, audio CD’s and other bonus materials and also a Success University newsletter.

You also have available to you – many live training calls and seminars (that are also recorded if the time is unsuitable for you) a training bootcamp, a startup list of actions, lots of audio and video tutorials and workbooks to download, a quick response helpdesk – the list goes on….but just imagine the scope here!

Better still ……don’t imagine – sign up for the Free 14 day trial NOW!

Success University also makes my list of the best affiliate programs because the online market for self development courses is relatively new and near enough to ground floor opportunities are still available for those of us that are prepared to work at it.

Success University has enrolled over 100,000 people in its first 4 years! I believe that as time goes by, more and more people will realize that what they learnt at school doesn’t quite cut it in the real world of success – and therefor more and more people will be looking for further education. What better education than that of success education? and where better to do it than in your own time and place (online)

Success University is currently outdoing both Tony Robbins (one of my personal life hero’s) and Donald Trump in their efforts to promote self development! Now that sure is something dont you think?

I will finish up this post by encouraging you……..no…..imploring you to take the free trial and see where you can go with this! It would cost you between $30,000 – $80,000 dollars to do an offline degree these days – but for only $50 a month you can gain a whole lot better education in your PJ’s with a cuppa! (that’s how I do my courses!……..not joking!)

Another good point to consider is that 95% of new online company’s are dead and gone within their first year, of the remaining 5% – 95% of those are gone in the second year!

Success University has surpassed all those hurdles by still exploding in it’s fourth year!

So, now you see why Success Universityand its self development and wealth creation opportunities makes my list of Best Affiliate Programs!

If you need any further information about Success University or the affiliate program, please contact us via the contact page.

Autoresponders: Turning Visitors into Customers

Here is another Team Momentum members’ take on autoresponders!

If you plan to successfully promote anything online, it’s a definite advantage to obtain the name and email address of your website visitors. How can you monetize a prospect if they do not know who you are? If they lack a way to communicate with you or if you do not have a way to get them back to your website, you are losing many sales! Email marketing using an autoresponder is one of the most powerful strategies for an internet business owner to talk to visitors, customers and prospects, for creating interest and ultimately making a sale.

So what exactly is an autoresponder supposed to do and how does it work? Visualize an automated salesperson that never gets sick or has a bad day, treats all customers with sincere respect and appreciation and never gets down when they say, “no.” It is a follow up system that accepts email leads from a sales page, landing page or squeeze page and continually follows up with them until the person chooses to opt-out or the membership period for the email newsletter or mini course expires.

There are two absolute, without a doubt must-haves from any autoresponder service – email deliverability and the option to control double opt-in or single opt-in. Deliverability is the most crucial goal. Your customers must get the message in order to read it or download the purchased content. Commercial autoreponders work closely with ISPs to ensure the highest delivery rates and you must demand this from your autoresponder service. Determining double opt-in versus single opt-in is another absolute must-have. Double opt-ins provides insurance against false spam complaints, and are more likely to read your emails and make purchases. However, when you are just starting out and want to build a list quickly, and you have confidence that your landing pages or squeeze pages will attract only highly-targeted leads to enter their information, then a single opt-in is the best choice.

Selecting an autoresponder service requires investigating the cost, payment options and available features. Aweber and GetResponse, the two most highly regarded commercial email marketing services include the ability to create multiple email campaigns, email newsletters and mini courses that automate follow up at predetermined levels and are highly customizable with personalization features, email link tracking, email web analytics, ad tracking, conversion tracking and split testing.

Aweber and GetResponse cost under $20 per month and offer flexible payment options. The setup process is completely automated and customer support offers a knowledge base and video training tutorials to assist you in every aspect of managing your email campaigns.

Obviously, an autoresponder is an absolute necessity for anyone marketing products or services on the Internet. With all the available features, don’t fail to overlook the most critical component of the autoresponder – the content of the email communications themselves. Writing copy does not require you to be an expert writer, but it does require you to be creative and to use the power of the written word to invoke a response from your subscribers.

Let’s discuss a few tips for email copywriting so that you produce messages that your subscribers want to read, yearn to read, and never feel that they can come too often:

1. Ask a question in the subject line. Questions are a part of everyday emails between friends and colleagues. They are a natural way to initiate a conversation as long as they are straightforward and not suspicious.

2. Use hyperlinks at the top, middle and bottom. Many click-thru responses will come from hyperlinks positioned at the top, middle and bottom of your email message – in this order. So don’t do what many marketers do which is to forget the middle hyperlink.

3. Write a letter, not an ad, and don’t be afraid to be wordy. If your emails sound more like a sales letter than a personal message, go back and change them immediately. Emails perceived to be ads are more likely to be deleted unopened than one that appears to be a personal message – even if the personal message is obviously promotional.

List building and customer relationship management using an autoresponder makes it possible for business owners and network marketers to provide a personal level of service to a massive audience. This flexibility combined with analytical tracking and reporting, and low cost make the decision to incorporate sequential autoresponders into your information marketing blueprint.

3 Easy Steps to Writing A Free Report

In my last article I discussed ways to build your list. One of the best ways is by writing a free report and giving it away in exchange for a person’s contact details.

If you’ve been paying attention to the gurus, you should realize the importance of providing your own free report in exchange for the name and email address of your prospects. Do you think that these gurus woke up one day, slapped up a website and became a millionaire 3 days later? Nope. It takes time, perseverance and a little bit of creativity to position yourself as a leader.

Providing free software, ebooks or a report can do wonders for you and your business. Not only does writing a free report establish you as an expert, it also has the ability to give you additional advertising as the report is shared among friends and acquaintances. This is just one of the many advantages of viral advertising.

Even if you are so broke that you cannot pay attention (lol), you can write your own articles or reports. Even if you think you cannot write anything worth reading… think again! Believe me, if I can do it you can too! Listed below are the 3 easy steps to follow so you can offer a free report of your own to your prospects.

1. Give your free report a catchy title that‘s easy to remember. If you are marketing beauty products, your free report could have the title of “7 Ways to Erase Wrinkles Without Breaking the Bank”. If you are marketing a travel opportunity, your free report could be titled “8 Reasons You Aren’t Getting the Best Travel Deals Available”.

2. The next step is to actually write your free report. The first paragraph should tell your reader a little bit about yourself. Include your name, your background and the struggles you’ve encountered along your path to whatever you are marketing (erasing wrinkles, paying too much for travel, paying too much for domain names, etc.) Give your reader a story that is both factual and interesting. This should be no more than 5 pages, and as little as just 1 page. Only you know yourself, and you must sell yourself in your story.

3. Introduce your reader to what you have found during your research in finding the best beauty products, or the best travel rates or the best phone plan. Whatever you are marketing should give you benefits other than money – tell your reader how these products or services have benefited you. Chances are, your prospect will be able to relate to your story and will feel an instant connection to you and they will continue reading. Make sure you provide a link to your website so that the reader can get more information when they are ready.

Free reports can be anywhere from 3 pages to 30 pages. If it’s too long, you may lose the attention of your reader. Too short, and it won’t provide enough information. The important thing is to get started, get finished and then give it away. You can always go back later and revise it and then let your current subscribers know that it has been updated and provide them with a new copy. This lets your reader know that you care about them and that you still have something of value to offer.

You cannot underestimate the value and power of writing a free report and then giving it away!
Start building a huge list! Get going on your report straight away :)

4 Easy Steps To Build Your Own List

Today I would like to talk about ways to build your own list.

Any successful Internet Network Marketer will tell you that you absolutely must have your own list. Not only does having a list of contacts give you an advantage over 95% of network marketers, but it also gives you the ability to have potential customers for life.

Many people just starting out in Internet Network Marketing really miss the boat on this. That is why this article will explain the 4 easy steps to complete in order to build your own list and have customers for life.

1. Don’t only promote your company’s replicated website! Every single distributor for your network marketing company has the same website, with the exception of a few personalization features. If by chance a prospect finds your website, yours will look the same as everyone else’s site out there on the world wide web, and most don’t have a way to capture the name and email address of your visitor. You need to create a capture page, sometimes also referred to as a Squeeze Page. In doing this, you will immediately be viewed as a leader and you will also be able to capture the name, email address and phone number of your prospect for future follow-up. If you don’t capture the name and email of your prospect, and add them to your list, they aren’t customers for life…. they are gone for life.

2. You must have an auto responder service. Many auto responder services are available. Auto responder services basically store your prospect’s information on a ‘list name’ unique only to you. You can then write compelling email messages that will be sent to your prospect as soon as they enter their information and click the ‘Submit’ button. Some auto responder services are free while others charge a yearly or monthly fee.

3. Offer your prospect something worthwhile for giving you their name, email address or phone number. Yes, this is a shameless bribe! However, prospects are more likely to enter their personal contact information if they think there is something of value in it for them. Consider giving away a free report that you’ve written. Maybe you are marketing health and wellness supplements. You can read your company’s literature and come up with a free report on why it’s important to have a balanced vitamin and mineral intake daily. Giving away something for free is one of the best ways to build your own list.

4. There are a lot of list builder sites that allow you to mail to other members of the list. Some of these list builders have over 30,000 subscribers. Join 5 or more of these list builder sites; advertise your capture page and viola…they enter their information on your capture page to get their ‘free report’ or whatever bribe you give them and now they are on your list and you can use your auto responder to follow-up with them from that point forward.

The most important thing to remember when you want to build your own list is to be sincere and offer something of value to the prospects that gave you their very personal information. They will send you emails asking questions or they will call you if you provide your phone number. Do not ignore them! Answer their questions and offer to call them if they are open to learning more. Build a relationship with your prospects, and you will have customers for life.

So, now you know you need to build your own list – Great! The next thing you need to know is how to format your autoresponder series to take best advantage of the list you are planning to build.

My next article will be about how to format your autoresponder series, but until then, think about lifetime customers and building your list!

How Do I Automate My Online Business?

It’s fairly easy to organize an automatic system in your Internet business venture. Today we will talk about the magic of Autoresponder’s – Saving Time, and Increasing Efficiency.

Having an online business is one thing, but having one that is efficient, and working for you to produce a profit is an entirely different matter.

Running an internet marketing business well, is made up of numerous components, and one major cog in this wheel of success is your autoresponder system.

To explain this in more detail, consider the following: Have you ever bought something, and then never heard anything further from the retailer, or online business? When you think about this, it is a simple case of leaving money on the table.

You were in the shop, you spent your money, and you then left. This is what is known as letting an existing customer walk away, and it is a lot more expensive to find new customers, than to service existing ones.

Another scenario is that you are browsing online, and see something you might be interested in, but you are not yet ready to buy.
If you are busy, and forget, you will not be able to easily find the online store again.

The two examples above are common, daily occurrences, and in both cases, these serious errors, on the part of the business owner could have been prevented. In the case of the shop owner, he could ask for your name and email address, in exchange for a future discount, or something of that nature, to encourage you to give your contact details. This then provides the owner with an additional name on their contact list for future promotions.

In the case of online websites, it is a common fact that some people will only buy statistically after the seventh contact is made.
Taking this to another level, you can pre-write all your emails at your leisure, and include interesting facts about your company, and more importantly, the way you will benefit your customer.

The key is – benefit to the customer, and having an autoresponder to automatically email them every few days, with your prewritten message is highly efficient, as well as more likely to produce a long term client for you.

Good autoresponders will also allow a client to unsubscribe, if they choose, but the important point in this article is to realise that we need to capture the name and email address of as many people as possible, who come by our website.

We may need to provide an incentive for them, and this can be in the form of a useful report, that is relevant to the client, and similar in nature to the products you provide.

This way, you are ‘reminding’ your client that you exist, and hopefully, providing valuable information for them to be interested in reading your emails.

Further, they are more likely to form a trust in you as you regularly provide them with information, and this has been found to be a very important part of the marketing of an online business.
How are you stacking up in your business and marketing efforts?

I’m sure you have these two sayings…..”It’s all in the followup” and…..”The money is in the list”. With an autoresponder to cut your workload and automate the process of follow up, your online business will be making more money online in no time!

The Two Different Types Of Home Based Business Prospects

There are millions of people in the world. Some of these millions of people want to start a internet business from home, while others do not. I am sure that you have heard the expression “Some Do, Some Don’t, So What?, Next”. There is actually more to it than that. You must first ask yourself “Why?”.

Start Your Online Business Here!

There are basically two different types of prospects for your home based business. There are people that already know what network marketing is, and there are others that don’t have a clue about what network marketing is. So, when speaking with your prospect, you must first place them in one of two categories.

In this article, we will assume that you have a prospect that wants to start making money online, but they don’t know what network marketing is. Most people that fill out the surveys online about how to work from home aren’t really that educated on their different options.

I cannot tell you how many people I’ve talked to, that want to work from home, and are looking for online typing jobs; however, most prospects don’t know what network marketing is and when I explain it to them, they have another option to think about.

Here’s a Fantastic Option for You to Consider!

Network Marketing is the movement of products and/or services from a company to the consumer through distributors. Network Marketing companies are able to provide a higher quality product and/or service because they can focus their attention on product development instead of advertising. Without distributors, the network marketing company would have to focus more of their attention on advertising; thus possibly producing a product and/or service of lesser quality. Network Marketing is also referred to as MLM, for Multi-Level Marketing.

In order to be successful, these MLM companies must provide a product and/or service that will benefit the consumer. You as a distributor are also a consumer. How can you relate this to your prospect?

Ask them to think about how much they currently pay per month for XYZ product and/or service. Then, ask if they would be interested in saving 123 dollars per month using a higher quality product and/or service? If their answer is “No”, you must ask them why. If someone is interested in starting a home based business, they must be willing to become a product of the product.

Show them how joining your online income opportunity will benefit them through the use of the products and/or services that you have to offer them, and also through the team building system you have in place for them.

There are also people that already know what Network Marketing is. These are great prospects for your home based business; however, they may also have been involved in several different companies over a period of time and they may be very skeptical because none of those income opportunities worked for them in the past.

When your prospect sees that you have a system in place for them to either 1) advertise their home business online or 2) advertise their business offline and be successful, you have suddenly given your prospect a value added service. The more value you can bring to your prospect, the more valuable you will become to them.

We all know that your personal growth directly influences your income. What does this mean, exactly? Well, the more you know about your company, your products and/or services and how to grow a team, directly influences the amount of wealth you will create in your home based business in any network marketing company.
