Is A Myth That Is Costing You A Fortune

had a unique experience recently that opened my eyes to the vast
potential of this incredible industry. Forget any misplaced idea
that mlm is saturated. You and I haven't even begun to scratch
the surface of our immense industry!
flew into Salt Lake City Utah for 3 days of consulting. The SLC
airport is quiet and small, and I made excellent time out to the
front curb where the taxi and limo stands were. I waved to the
first cabby, and started loading my suit bag into his trunk. From
somewhere behind me I heard an annoyed 'Hey, that's my cab'.
a 'Seinfield-esque' New Yorker fashion I whirled like a dervish
to face my accuser. I instantly adopted a combat- ready stance,
the sneer on my face clearly communicating my readiness to argue
my defense. There stood a gentleman in his late fifties, a salt
and pepper beard shielding a weather-beaten visage. His look of
concern over the temporary taxi crisis was readily visible.
than stating my opening arguments, a switch clicked somewhere
in the subconscious region of my brain, and I was surprised to
hear my mouth say, 'I'm heading downtown to the Hotel Monaco.
We can share the cab if you'd like.' I was raised not to talk
to strangers. This was unusual behavior for me.
question had the effect of a foam fire extinguisher on a kitchen
grease fire. He nodded agreement and said sure. He threw his backpack

7 years ago for 500 bucks, and today it does 5 million in sales
in 12 countries.
statement lit his fuse! He began to question me about vitamins,
franchising, master territories, etc. I soon realized that he
had absolutely no idea what multi-level marketing was! I began
to recite a laundry list of a dozen MLM companies in Utah. None
ran a bell! He had no idea what I was talking about!
that moment I had a surreal feeling, and began to look around
to make sure I wasn't on Candid Camera! Here I was in a cab in
Salt Lake City Utah, the most highly dense mlm hotbed, the 'Silicon
Valley' of network marketing, and this very successful entrepreneur
had never been prospected, ever! A true mlm virgin!
there are over 175 million adults in North America who have never
been involved in MLM. Rather than retreading the 9 million who
have, why not focus 10 hours per week on finding fresh, eager
people who are searching for additional sources of income? Would
