Everyone who joins a Network Marketing opportunity has good intentions. Everyone thinks (albeit briefly) that they will succeed. Otherwise, why would they join in the first place?

 

Intentions are overrated. The power of intention might get people started, but it is short-lived. We need more than that. We need staying power. We need momentum. We need wins.

Do you remember when you bought your first car? Do you remember how you felt in the weeks, days and hours leading up to the purchase – that period of time when you knew you were going to get it but were still working on the financing or delivery?

 

Do you remember the promise you made to yourself and others about how the car would never see rain, how you would never eat in it or abuse it in any way?

Richard & Kimmie Brooke Coaching Series

You may have heard that bumblebees cannot fly … at least not according to the laws of aerodynamics. They are too big and heavy for their wingspan. No known science supports the idea that they can fly, yet they do. Perhaps they just don’t read.

This is much like the innovative men and women responsible for the advancement of modern technology. Somehow these brilliant minds refused to believe there were limits to what they could create and accomplish.

When you think about it, our minds are the most intricate and powerful “computers” imaginable. They are worth literally billions in what they can accomplish—just ask Bill Gates.

Three Resources To Help Increase Your Bottom Line

Richard Brooke Launches Direct Selling Company Legal Defense Fund

Home Business News

We have uncovered three great resources to help any entrepreneur, especially a network marketing independent professional! So much is spoken or written on how much you can make in direct sales, and very little mentioned about increasing your net worth! These resources will help you increase your net worth.

Also, the DS Edge Conference is right around the corner. It’s February 4th & 5th, 2016 in Newport Beach, California.

2012_rb_02And last but not least, Richard Brooke, founder of Life Matters, and long-time ethics committee member of the DSA (Direct Selling Association) has launched a direct selling legal defense fund. The first recipient is Vemma Nutritional Company.

Here are a few points of interest Richard shared on the site, which I think are worth pondering.

VemmaHere are some mistakes that Vemma made which the FTC convinced a judge were worthy of an ex parte action
no due process, no notice, just seize and shut down the company.

Vemma had zero distributor enrollment fees, so most “customers” were also “affiliates” depending on the box they checked. The FTC and judge ruled them, as a result, NOT CUSTOMERS.
Vemma traded ethics and public reputation for immediate sales growth in a segment of the sales force edifying obnoxious behavior.
Vemma allowed distributor videos suggesting significant success by recruiting without appropriate disclaimers.

“And here are the results of the government’s actions.”

* Vemma was entirely shut down worldwide for almost a month while the receiver went about dismantling the company. The receiver repatriated international company bank accounts.

* By the time BK resumed partial control of the company, Wells Fargo had withdrawn his merchant account, placed his name and company name on a watch list (black list), making it impossible to obtain a domestic merchant account, and his sales leaders had cut deals to move to competitive companies.

* The court required Vemma to change its compensation plan to one whereby a sales leader could not be paid on their team sales unless Vemma could prove that 51% of that team’s sales came from customers with the title customer. Affiliate personal purchases cannot qualify them for bonuses, only personally sponsored customer and distributor purchases. That compensation plan is still not effectively programmed and functional as of me writing this almost four months after this event.

* Legal fees have already reached $1.4 million and are expected to reach $3+ million before the case is final.

* Vemma has to get court approval for any compensation, incentive, and/or marketing campaigns it wants to initiate.
