This Dicks Sporting Goods Commercial Is Inspirational

Dicks Sporting Goods makes a commercial for the Rio Olympics that is So inspirational!

If you're looking for inspirational commercials, have you seen the one from Dicks Sporting Goods yet?

You may be thinking 'which one' - or perhaps you're not even aware that Dicks Sporting Goods even made commercials.  The one I'm referencing is their Rio Olympics commercial about the Gold inside of each of us. Did you know that we are Born with gold flowing through our veins?  Well I didn't know this either. Thanks Dicks Sporting Goods. You don't know how much motivation you've just provided.

Over at TopNetworkersGroup.com I've got an entire section dedicated to talking sports and business.

This commerical from Dicks Sporting Goods fits right in with everything I've been telling the people who work with me. We have to have the right mentality to win in business. Understanding that we each have value, that is intrinsic in nature is so important. When you and I understand how important we are, we'll treat one another with a certain level of importance we otherwise would not. That, to me is what's missing in the world of business.

Basic, Common respect.

Check out The Dicks Sporting Goods Commercial Now

The largest Concentration of gold can be found in our hearts.

Think about that for a moment.

The Dicks Sporting Goods Commercial on Gold

Think about how inspirational this commercial has the potential to be, when other people (like you) discover it. Only some of us have what it takes to pull that gold inside of us out. Sometimes, that is because we lack the proper motivation, or focus to do what we need to. In business, we have to stay motivated because we are in a world that is always working against us. We live in a society that seeks to enslave the masses.

If you're not part of that master class, then there is a built in struggle just to survive. Should it be that way?

Should the world be better? Maybe.

Perhaps everything really is as it should be. Then again, maybe that is the challenge before us. Similar to what this commercial from Dicks Sporting Goods is trying to say - we must pull the gold inside of us out. We must put our all on the line, and give all that we can to achieve our goals.

One of my favorite 'motivational speakers' right now, is Eric Thomas.

Apparently Dicks Sporting Goods also enjoys what he has to say and flew some of their employees out to hear from him, right before the Rio Olympics.

Here's a few of his thoughts - on accomplishing our goals!

Residual Traffic Through Blogging by TNG

Let's spend a few moments on Residual Traffic. No one is talking about this other than TopNetworkersGroup.com because it's something people aren't considering.

One of the benefits of blogging is the residual traffic that's potentially out there for any of us who are willing to learn a few simple skills. Imagine the benefits of being able to take several months off from writing blogs, posting videos, or engaging in any business via your social media outlets. Yet, you're still getting hundreds, or thousands of hits on the articles you posted to your blog WHILE you're taking several months off. That's Residual Traffic and it's powerful.

It's also m.i.a. for most network marketers.

Let's get YOU some Residual Traffic!

Back in 2013 I ran into an affiliate company that offered a compensation plan around it's blogging platform. I had no idea I'd learn how to create residual traffic for myself when I joined. The company is no longer around, but the lessons I've learned have stuck with me and, continue to generate tremendous, ongoing, 'residual traffic' for my blogs. I have several, including this one.

All of them, are receiving readers, just like you, often without any additional marketing on my part. I'm not buying ads or paying for traffic. 100% of my residual traffic is free!

Yours could be too.

At the moment, I'm not selling anything - but if you want to create residual traffic for yourself you WILL need to buy in.

What I learned very quickly is that even though I was excited about learning this new skill set, it's a lot of work. It's work that pays off, but still, it is a lot of work. Like most things though, it's much easier when people work together in 'teams' - and that's the key difference between the blog sites getting Millions of visitors per day, and the rest of us. In many cases, people are hired to actually work in these teams that create residual traffic for the companies that hire them. You 'could' do something like that too, if your budget is set up like that!

However, a lot of people starting out in business, do not have that sort of budget.

That being said, learning and applying the skills required to create residual traffic for your websites will be a key skill as our industry moves into the Fifth Wave of it's existence. Things change and in business, so much is always changing. We need to make sure we stay on top of what's changing and fewer people are going to be able to make money as 'individuals' as things continue to progress. Just as we've been saying here at topnetworkersgroup for several years now, teams will matter more than companies. Teams will matter more than individuals.

It will be the Teams that have the most Skills who ill get the most Traffic in the next 10-20 years - the future of our industry, is very bright!

Let's get you some Residual Traffic!

MLM Business Model For Black People

You already know by now that I'm an advocate of the MLM business model for Black People.

The MLM business model basically says you can go out and Get 1 million customers for a product or service by yourself, or you can invite a handful of people to go out and get those customers together. Together you can all get a handful of customers, and together you can all get a piece of what those 1 million customers are spending each and every single month. That's the beauty of the MLM Business model, you really and truly are in business for yourself but not by yourself.

Unless of course, you're involved with other people who are not focused on the same goal as you.

When it comes to black people, it is obvious that a solution to so many economic problems facing them would be addressed through group economics. However, this requires developing a certain mentality. We would have to want to work together, and help each other.

Some of the left over habits from slavery however, include a sense of strong individualism. It includes not being able to rely on, or trust each other. Over several generations we have come to be a certain kind of people, with very similar ideas. These ideas however, are not the kinds of ideas that will help any of us make the kind of money most of us hope to make. The white system of supremacy was not created with our benefit in mind. While some of us will be able to go to school, and get good jobs, this will not be (and has not been) the reality for most of us.

So WE must be open to alternative ways of earning money....

We also need to think long and hard, about future generations to come.

We need to start putting things in place now, that are patterned after better ideas, now.

So that in the future, our offspring can truly have it better than we - which brings me back, to the MLM business model.

Because, we all know that these are just the highlights on the long list of 'what needs to be done' - but the main question that continues to be asked is, 'how'?

Many people have answers to that question, and what ends up happening is, we debate and debate and debate.

Now is Not the time for debate.

Now is the time, for Action!

For those who do not believe in the MLM business model, that is fine. You can sit on the sidelines and not participate. All we ask is that you do not talk against your brothers and sisters who Are using this model as a way to gather and pool resources together.

What we have decided to do, is take the model itself and apply it to TopNetworkersGroup. We then built a system, that we call the One MLM System @ 1mlmsystem.com - to bring all of our ideas under one roof, along with several programs which operate IN the MLM industry. We will be that marketing arm that goes out and gets customers for various companies who, will in turn pay us a piece of what our customers spend each month. As we grow, If we stick together, we can demand higher compensation for our efforts and be positioned with the leverage to have our requests met.

That being said, most black people are not going to stick around long enough to see this happen. Sadly, too many of our people do have a negative outlook on life, and do not believe that anything like this is possible. That lack of belief, that doubt, usually stops us before we can begin.

However, if you're unlike most black people, you could be positioned as one of the Leaders of our organization, as we GROW into a real force within the MLM Industry.

Be sure to Review some of the conversations we're hosting at The Black Folder - and get started with our team as soon as you review everything we have to offer, both now - and into the future.

Be Sure To watch The Black Folder presentation (on the page) in order to understand How the MLM Business Model can work For Black people simply by Utilizing our MLM System!

A Better Approach to MLM

Welcome reader! I'm sure you are here to find out what I mean by a Better approach to MLM - but my hope is that you're actually going to take the time to understand what that means.

Many people are impatient seekers of knowledge and they do themselves a disservice. They are in a hurry to win and take shortcuts and harm their own mission in the process. Do you really want to take a better approach to MLM or not? Does that idea just 'sound good' to you or is it something you're absolutely serious about??

Truth is, only time will tell.

Time tells, every single time though. Greg Provenzano, President and Co-Founder of ACN would always say that a winner has the ability to stay excited about something long enough to win. He said average people could stay excited for a few weeks, above average people could stay excited for a few months, but winners stay excited about an opportunity to win, for as long as it takes to win. A better approach to MLM involves patience. There is a right way to do things and that right way is often 'slow' - but if it's done right, by the time the wheel gets spinning there's no slowing it down. A better approach to MLM is what's needed for all of us.

Please take the time to listen.

There is a right way to do business in this industry.

There is also a WRONG way to do business; and that is the main reason that not nearly enough of us are making the kind of money we can and should be making.

If you'll do the things you're asked to do, as a business partner of Topnetworkersgroup; WE will win Championships.

Why People Are Leaving DSDomination

I'm On here (logged into the members area of DSDomination) listening to this DSD webinar; getting informed on what's happening. Gotta say it's interesting how many people in MLM, gave up on MLM to pursue selling on eBay, Amazon, etc .... Even more interesting that People are Leaving DSDomination, considering all that they have to offer business minded people.

I was at a Les Brown event; several people were speaking ;

One of them was discussing how to make money selling over eBay; even the guy who combined ideas with mine like #voltron to form the 1mlmsystem to rule them all; was already making good money from, selling over eBay; so it's clearly a way to make money. If you're doing it right; you can make some really good money.

I think that's why a LOT of people in MLM; flocked to this; and have not 'come back' -- b/c of the realities that a lot of people in MLM are not making money in MLM.That's a problem in MLM; but we (Topnetworkersgroup) have SOLUTIONS for these problems.

solutions4problems

And unless you're paying attention you wouldn't know it.

The problem with most people though; is people are sheep;

They'll do it 'when' they see others doing it...

Most aren't really paying attention to anything; other than, what everyone else is doing; Not much 'vision' out there as it is .....

That might be why a lot of people, "followed' their 'leaders' OUT of DSD; and into TLC; because hey, everyone else is doing it............

How are you gonna promote something for months; say it's the way to go; and leave - Just because others are leaving?

Listen; sometimes we all end up in a bad business deal; and we NEED to jump off the ship; before it sinks and we sink with it --- Sometimes a company starts out well and goes a different direction; and is no longer what it once was; Sometimes a company is not paying you on time; or not taking care of your customers; and so there are many GOOD reasons to leave a company; but people leaving DSDomination or any other opportunity - 'b/c' someone else left ... that's wack.

That makes you, as a business person look like someone who doesn't understand business.

DSD is still a very 'solid' opportunity; while I DISAGREE with those who 'only focus on DSD' - rather than use it as a stream of income; and a way to learn new skills that will last for lifetimes; as a way to add value to yourselves; and others as well who 'want what you want and are willing to do what it takes to have it....' ---- and I think this happens far too often with GOOD opportunities; where people "leave" for grass they feel is greener; or worse - are told is greener by people they Trust; who are simply USING THEM; like vampires to live off of; it's sad to witness; and yet ... that is why we are here.

If you're Working with the Group; KEEP working; So much work to be done ...

For example.

DSDomination is part of our MLM System - however it's in there JUST for the basic Training on how to Sell through Ebay; we do not promote or endorse paying for the higher programs unless you're going to be SERIOUS bout learning those skills. You see, so many of the people leaving DSDomination (and other opportunities like it) usually do so, because they're not making money. They follow these other leaders into new programs and companies because they believe that perhaps things will be different this time.

Sadly, not enough networkers ever stop to consider that perhaps their approach is the problem.

You see; making money on Ebay is VERY TIME CONSUMING - very; it's a good S-quadrant opportunity. It's not Residual Income though; which means you're going to be continually listing and shipping products for years and years to come; You have to continually put time in; to get money out.  The reason MLM is what it is; is the promise of TRUE residual income; where you and others can build a team; get customers who are paying for products/services that you and your partners are selling; and earn Ongoing income from Ongoing purchases.

While Lots of money certainly CAN be (and is being) made through ebay; MOST of the people making money in DSDomination are doing so from SELLING the training programs.

Because frankly ;most of the people who sign up; won't put the TIME in to learn the skillset.

Knowing how to make money on Ebay; is a skillset. Some have it and some do not.

Because some have put in the time to learn it; while others - have not.

Too many people are and were in DSDomination for the wrong reasons; and with the wrong mentality.

But that is why we are here.

We are here to help the industry get things right.

Most Networkers are Not learning any real skills - people have quoted me several times on Twitter

To learn more about DSDomination; be sure to get signed up for our entire 1mlmsystem; You'll want to take our approach to it. Our approach will encourage you to LEARN Skills.

You can always take Skills with you.

Leaving DSDomination is not the solution you want. Learning Skills is.

We want you to learn skills. Our TNG Classes focus on Learning GDI; how to blog; and other topics.

Is TSU A Social Networking Revolution Or Not?

Quick Update; as of August 1st, 2016 - Tsu has shut it's doors. Please read the article below now -

TSU Closes Down: The Social Network Experiment Ends

Visit TopNetworkersgroup.com to Sign up for our Email List and to work with My team.

 

Yesterday I wrote that I believe using TSU is a Revolutionary Act.  I actually posted my thoughts to TSU and surprisingly (not really) not everyone agree'd. So Is TSU a Social Networking Revolution or not?  I certainly think it's a worthwhile debate to have.  Facebook was a revolution - I think looking back on it all of us can agree on that. The way facebook made social networking fit into everyone's life was accomplished on a much larger scale than Myspace. However to be fair, Myspace truly set the pace for everything we see today.

So where other social networks have revolutionized how we communicate, keep in touch, share information, and make new friends - I feel TSU has the opportunity to revolutionize our role. I can see how TSU has the potential to redirect the money flowing to these social networks into the lives of its users. However in spite of what I believe, it's going to require others who think like me to bring about that kind of revolution.  I mean, why should social networks share their revenue with it's users?

Ironically enough it's the same kind of mentality at work with CEO's making so much money. Why should they pay employees more money?

It's not like the employees have anything to do with those profits .......

Hopefully you can hear the sarcasm jumping off the page.

So again I ask, Is TSU A Social Networking Revolution or not? (we now know the answer is .... Not. ***Update 8/9/16*** )

One TSU User shared his thoughts - " To me, Using TSU is NOT a revolutionary act. It's help to build a snowballing system that pays out a little for the people on the top of the pyramid and almost zero to the one on the bottom. It also means supporting a network that pays for copyright infringing and acts against it's own TOS. Talking bad about Facebook will not change or improve the situation 😉 " (read the entire post On TSU the Social Network That Pays)

Out of several comments this was the only one to Openly object to my statement.

What was said however, was quite interesting and can help several people in understanding just what TSU is really all about.

Is TSU doing any of the things this user claims? Not really. I do however want to try and go into some of these thoughts and ideas which have circulated. Bad ideas can be destructive and often are.

So let's deal with the first Bad Idea that only the people 'at the top' are making money.

It's the most Common Myth in MLM - I made a video that explains what is wrong with this perception of MLM compensation plans.

If TSU is ever going to be a true social networking revolution we have to get this Idea right - and make sure as many people understand it as possible. So, 'do the people at the top make all the money?' --- Let's deal with that right now.

Originally part of Do People At The Top Make All The Money in MLM?

I also recommend listening to Tim Sales's video Who Is Getting Rich in MLM - as he does an even better job of explaining why this type of compensation is the most fairest business model there is. We get what we earn in MLM - and while TSU is certainly not an MLM it has a lot in common with MLM's. The perception people have is that of it being an MLM. This speaks to the reality of where the industry is at this point in time. Several companies are adopting this business model as a way to 'get the word out' without spending money on advertisements.

Think about it, did you ever see a Facebook commercial before you signed up?

Or did someone you know tell you about it? Did it keep popping up all over the place? Did you feel 'left out' so you created an account?

I know the answers to all of these questions.

I know that no one Saw a commercial for Facebook; I know you all saw it popping up everywhere. I know most of you joined facebook because you didn't want to be left out.

That is the society We live in. None of you can fool me!

Read What Facebook’s $250 Billion Worth Means for TSU

Facebook is earning serious income because every single day, Millions of people are on their platform - posting content; reading content; sharing content; and commenting on content. In the world of marketing and advertising - the goal has always been to get in front of as many eyeballs as possible. Why else do you think the Superbowl has always been one of the premier slots to advertise? Because so many people are watching the same channel at the same time; it almost never happens that way.

This is where TSU comes in.

If we as users could have the same vigor and excitement to Post and Share all the Content we do on Other networks as we have for doing it on TSU; We can create a Social Networking Revolution. The objection made by the TSU user is common. Too many of them are concerned with what others are making. They're so mad that a few people who got in early and referred a lot of people who turned around and did the same are now making so much money in comparison to what they are making.

However, any money made on TSU is more, by comparison to what people make on FB.

tsuvsfbmoney

Also the people with Larger Networks Deserve a Larger share of the Pie.

What we need to focus on instead of how big their slice is, is HOW big is the Pie?

How can we GROW The PIE so that even the little guy, is making a decent income From social networking?

That is what I mean by a social networking revolution. That is why I say, that I believe Using TSU is a revolutionary act. When you use TSU you help grow the pie. When you refer others to TSU you grow the pie. When you encourage others to do the same, we all grow the pie. The bigger the pie, the more we can all eat.

What Facebook’s $250 Billion Worth Means for TSU

Before you read further I have a Quick Update;

as of August 1st, 2016 - Tsu has shut down it's opportunity Please read this now -

TSU Closes Down: The Social Network Experiment Ends

Visit TopNetworkersgroup.com to Sign up for our Email List and to work with My team.

The Original article is below.

I'm writing this one for TSU users. I want to talk about what Facebook's $250 Billion Worth means for TSU.

TSU Users; earlier today I shared a post from Bloomberg - Facebook is now worth $250 Billion (with a b) ---- everyone using facebook; Congratulate yourselves for what you did here. Facebook never charged us a Penny;

So how are they making $250 Billion in a 12 month Calendar Period????

Count on me to be Honest with you.

Because of you, you, and you. All of you who use Facebook for free help the site generate revenue. If only you took the same approach to TSU ... none of you use facebook for the money; So why are you doing it with TSU?

Too many people join TSU and think it's just a way to make money.

They don't understand the "Industry of Social Networking Sites" - They do not understand how Ad Revenue is generated - or how it will be distributed. They don't understand that it's going to take several years to generate the kinda money Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram generate.

By that time though, some of us are going to get a piece of the revenue. Others will be hopping on late; and will probably have the same kinda complaints people have now; that they only get a few pennies per day ...

While the rest of us, who got on when it launched; and who continue to use it and tell others; will be glad we decided to stick with the network.

Then again, TSU could fold up.

TSU could go out of business.

I mean it's business afterall.  Any business could go out of business.

Business is risky.

It's a risk to make a few pennies or a few dollars per day for a while; to hope that some day you're generating a few hundred Dollars per day.

But when you consider the risk; Other people's mentality makes no sense to me. Facebook is never gonna give us a cent. Twitter is never gonna give us a cent. Instagram will never give us a cent. But i promise you, they will continue to generate billions; because The masses will continue using these networks.

Unless....

People with Influence start talking about TSU.

I've used what little influence I have to bring a hand crop of people to this site; I thank them from time to time for their support; for 'at least' looking at the network. A handful of them have done the same. Meanwhile others with far MORE influence than I have; chose to Hate on TSU; and use their Influence to keep People from Looking. It's sad when people do this.

They ensure that the people at the top stay at the top; while also keeping those at the bottom, where they are.

To me, using TSU is a revolutionary act. (at least, it was .... *Updated 8/9/16)

tsu revolution

TO me, NOT doing what the masses do is a step towards bringing down a SYSTEM that has flooded wealth to a small % - while keeping it from the masses.

Every single day when YOU log into Social Media; and share Thoughts; News Stories, YouTube Clips, or what ever -- KEEP in mind -- that where you Share this #Content Matters.

You are either part of the Solutions.

OR --- You are part of the Problems.

The problems - all the money in the wrong people's hands.

I'm sorry but, Mark Zuckerberg and all his genius doesn't use his money to Promote causes that would End police brutality; he's silent about black lives mattering; So I'd rather not Consciously contribute to his Financial Empire.

Sure, I'll still use FB; but you see what I do; I encourage people to USE something else other than FB; because if we don't, we cannot complain later.

We cannot say we didn't have an option.

We cannot say we didn't have a choice to make Mark Rich; or redirect that flow of income. 5 years from Today we'll look back and say "I'm glad I did" - or "I wish I had" --- today though; today is your chance to make a choice - a choice for good. A choice ... for better

Racism in MLM and Our Approach

I watched this video with Larry Wilmore exposing Fox News for more obvious racism - and one of the methods they use is once again on full display. I'll let you watch the video first; but then I'm going to talk about Racism in MLM.

Fox news often carts out a black face, to say things that racist white people want to say; but know they cannot get away with saying.

It's sad, but the black community in America has been pushed so far down, that offering a few dollars is enough to make several black people TURN on their own people.

For the LOVE of MONEY is the root of all evil ..........

When people love MONEY more than doing right; more than speaking truth; more than Standing Up for Justice - That is Pure Evil.

When I look around at the MLM Industry I'm in; I notice almost NO 'black leaders' speak out on these issues; They do not want to upset the white people who are in business with them; They do not want to make non-blacks mad and possibly lose some money.

Make sure you're following real leaders - especially if you're Black and in MLM.

I've said it several times; will say it again; LOTS of non-black people do NOT want to work with black MLM's - if a MLM has too many blacks in it, and if there are too many at the top; Notice how there seems to be NO diversity --

Because Racism is so horrible that it Seeps into everything we do as a society; EVEN and Especially MLM.

In a great book, that YOU need to read - by Dr. Charles King called "the New Professionals" - Race is brought up; and it is pointed out, that companies who's leadership is diverse will always do better than companies that are Not.

Diverse companies have the most appeal to the broadest range of people.

This is why several Black Leaders get approached by mostly White companies; and are offered Money to bring 'some color' to those companies. I've been offered money before; I know several others who've been offered money; and even those who Took money - but there is always a PRICE you pay when you take someone else's money.

They own you.

I didn't get into MLM to be a slave.

--- Freedom feels so much better.

But sometimes we must FIGHT for the freedom we want -

A couple of points I make frequently.

Corporate America has invaded MLM - and rather than lead the industry, most Leaders in our industry are Slaves.

They've been muzzled. They cannot talk about issues that matter because they could get terminated - and lose their income.

They have not set themselves up to sustain the ups and downs of MLM - or the whims of MLM Company owners.

THEY should be listening to TopNetworkersGroup and approaching MLM our way; Our way is better.

No MLM Company can tell us to pull down The Black Folder

No MLM Company can tell us not to talk about real issues on our Social networks; On this team you're encouraged to do so.

No MLM Company can tell us NOT to engage in Multiple Streams of Income - besides; we do it by the book.

We are Free - and yet we are within a system that is still controlled by people who have more money, more power and more influence than we have at this point in time. Many of the people who are 'against us' know the power of Our approach. They know how many people we will FREE - so they talk against it; just like Fox News talks against anything that may IMPROVE This world for more than just a 'few' - While it's possible for our money, power and influence to grow - for now we all must do, what we must do - until that day arrives - when we Can bring more people to our side of the fence.

And Until that time .... I will continue to speak out for justice.

Because I am free.

A Plan For Success in Your MLM Business

Back in January of 2014 I was talking about A Plan For Success in WakeUpNow. It was a video on Building your MLM Business the way 'we' are teaching people to build it. You see I was hearing some rumors that WakeUpNow had financial troubles back when I filmed this video. I have several years of experience in business, not just MLM. So when the One MLM System was created it was entirely because of the experiences I've had - and the understanding that everyone in business MUST have a solid plan for success.

The teachers and mentors I had early in my career have helped me so much - They taught me how to prepare for the objections my prospects would have for me. So when I filmed this video back in January of 2014, I was talking about a real solution; that would help people then - and would help people going into the future. I also had already been dealing with the excuses people were making 'not' to get started. These excuses were not new to me. I experienced them time and time again in my very first company.

ACN  (my first company) was and still is $499 to join; but with WakeUpNow we were essentially talking about a business that costs $1,200 per year to run. Just as people often hit us with the "I don't have the money" excuse in ACN; people were still using it when it came to this opportunity. It's a common excuse people use when it comes to most income opportunities. You and I, as professionals need to understand that going in. We should be studying people - we should be about understanding people. If that's what we are about, then the things we are talking about - will make sense to you.

We have been talking about a plan for success.

This Plan would have helped many people in WakeUpNow who built teams and lost everything when wakeupnow closed down their MLM Operations.

The plan will help anyone in the MLM industry avoid the risk of losing everything. Any business can go out of business. As a professional you should always be prepared for just in case - because you never know what will happen. Even if you start your own company there is no guarantee that it will stand the tests of time.

Some of what I'm talking about now, is part of the advice I have for web design and business consultation clients; that they really need to consider scale. Growing a business is going to take time and the reason so many people get into MLM is they feel they can cut corners. They feel that they can get to their financial goal quicker here than in other places. It's possible for some, but not for most. Most people do not have strong enough relationships to pull that off. MLM is a people business. So when we put our focus on programs or companies, we are setting ourselves up for failure instead of success.

Hello GDI :) ::: TopNetworkersGroup Official First Post

Hello GDI! Our Official First Post here from TopNetworkersGroup - and the 'funny' part is, since officially coming on board in September, I've BEEN Talking about GDI! - Some of you know this already, and others are NEW to TNG - GDI was added to our One MLM System (to rule them all) - our Professional Training System for our Network Marketing Organization, to replace our previous $10/mo Program.

We've been a HUGE Fan of this program from afar for several years but simply felt like our 'social networking' opportunity was sufficient enough to help our new team members create a solid monthly income. The compensation plan was identical to GDI - which is powerful, when we consider the low monthly cost, And all that comes with membership.

I've known about GDI since it launched all the way back in 2004 - the fact that it's been around for so long is impressive and is not to be overlooked! Most companies never make it past their first 5 years in business; while even fewer make it past the first 10 years. When a company does hang around for that length of time, it's to be taken seriously. While we liked our social networking opportunity it was new. It lasted 3 years and went out of business.

Just like the numbers usually indicate. It's always difficult for start up companies to last the long run. GDI has done just that however.

So in the back of my mind, I always knew that "if" our social network went out of business (and it did) - GDI would be the perfect opportunity to slide in it's place. It has officially been part of our $10 Level since October; and already a few of our team members have fallen right back into place. That is after all, the point and the purpose of our approach to MLM. We are tired of having to build, and rebuild our teams over and over again. Any business can go out of business, and I've already stated how frequent that happens, in several articles that are already on the web now. I'm not 'new' to this, I am true to this.  I've had some of the best teachers and mentors this industry has ever produced. I am a proud student of the network marketing industry, of successful people in all business sectors, and I'm the guy 'manning' the ship for TopNetworkersGroup.

All I ask is that my business partners trust me, and our leadership team, to decide what companies and programs will be found in our system. Everyone else just needs to focus on building up our organization, and making sure that everyone on the team is getting and applying the Training that we provide. If a company or program in our system happens to go out of business, we'll replace that program with something else; and we will not miss a beat in our income.

Unfortunately quite a few programs have indeed, gone out of business, since we rolled out our MLM System in the end of 2012.  Other programs changed their compensation plan, or eliminated their affiliate program all together - Then there's our "SEO blogging Training Course" - which no longer has the training videos - and had to be pulled off the shelf because it no longer Is the same opportunity we were promoting. However, I was able to learn enough in that program, to begin putting together a program of my own; that will be offered - THROUGH our System.

You see, I know what I'm doing - and if you're working with the group, you will be in good hands.

We are going to be applying some awesome SEO Training to the GDI Blogs; which are going to be powerful marketing tools in your toolbox, while you are working to build your Online International Organization; as a member of TopNetworkersGroup.

We are absolutely excited to be Here.

I signed up through a Real Leader in this game; Mr. James Hall. He never even approached me about GDI but, has been a member of TNG for several years now; even long before we rolled out the system. He has remained active in many of our programs; and while several people 'came and went' - talked to me about adding GDI to my portfolio, I passed on partnership with them all. Loyalty matters to me, and it matters if you are interested in creating STABLE ... Long term income. We want to show you the right way to make money in this industry; and the right way to use the powerful TOOLS that we get through the GDI Platform; the fact that GDI has been in business for as long as it has, makes me look forward to what we're about to help others do.

For example ... You can purchase our Blog Training Program and learn SEO methods that actually work; and WILL help you Get Found on Google; and other Search Engines. You'll learn how to drive Real Organic Traffic to your site. Then, You'll be able to use your GDI Blog to your benefit; regardless of what you want to write blog articles about. This platform is powerful 'when' you know how to use it. Like we say about your tools all the time. You must know 'how' to use the tools in your toolbox. You gotta know when to use a screwdriver and when to use a hammer.

A Blog can be one of the most powerful tools you'll use to construct your Empire - Make sure you're aligned with our team; so that you can be one of the first ones to learn how to explode not only GDI; but find success in everything you choose to pursue, within the MLM Industry - and Beyond!
