I wish I read this book when I started my work with RELIV. It would have saved me a lot of heartaches and unnecessary disappointments.

If you're new to Network Marketing, I believe this book should be the cornerstone of your business. Hands down, a great system to follow from A-Z.

This book should be called "How To Become Brilliant on the basics" and subtitled "How To Unleash Your Potential in MLM." It sure did for me.

This book gives in depth guidance on how to avoid the pitfalls and mistakes most new networkers tend to make. If you are new to networking and are serious about it, this book will help you really understand what this industry is all about.

A good read for anyone exploring the Network Marketing Industry!

Loved it!! I wasn't even aware of all these big mistakes I have been making trying to build my downline. Definitely recommend this for everyone interested or in network marketing, even if you've been in the business for some time.

This book is a must read for the new network marketer or even the seasoned one.
Reading this book could make the difference of you sticking with it or losing a fortune in what you could have had, namely a nice residual income for life.

This is possibly one of the best books I've read to prepare for network marketing. I read it after I've been in network marketing for 6 months. It was a life saver.

OK, for Network Marketing one of the 2 "must read" books that I've read. It is very practical and also inspirational. Are you looking the "how to's"? Here you will find them.

This is a book I will definitely recommend to my collegues.

Was very informative, gave me some insight into what I can expect from my first year in internet marketing, even though the book was written for network marketing niche, the advice is still applicable
Nov 21, 2014 Nadia rated it it was ok
While it had positive stories, I felt like there were so many stories about people walking away from MLM. I bought this wondering if MLM was for me and now this book has left me with even more questions.

Shelves: business, 2014
Full of useful and practical information that is not typically discussed, presented by a highly successful network professional. The principles are the same today, though some of the technology is outdated.
This book is an excellent read for individuals interested in network marketing. The author gives insight about the in's and out network marketing. As an individual that has dibbled and dabbled in the industry, I lacked a blueprint. Mr. Yarnell gives detailed and insightful experience that will help any network marketing professional.

Wish I had this book at the BEGINNING of my first year of MLM, and not at the end! But now I know, and how to OVERCOME!

This was the book that I picked out of the crowd not long after I started in the industry. I love the authors fresh and entertaining writing style. After 4 years my fiancé and I are top 100 earners in a leading company in the industry, and I would say that speaks volumes for this book. Should be required reading for every new recruit.

I needed to read this book for a challenge I'm participating in, and I kept putting it off and reading others in the challenge instead. The title looked boring, the cover looked boring...but it wasn't. I actually was pleasantly surprised and picked up a lot of good information from this book. Yay!

This book was very helpful as I start up my new MonaVie business! The only complaint that I had was that some of the examples were a bit lengthy or redundant for the point that was being made. Overall, though, I learned so much that it was worth the small amount of time I invested in reading it!

This book was very useful and gave clarity on why certain things happen in this industry. The only draw back was there was a lot of discussion about selling products and i work with services. i definately recommend this book for new network marketers

Yucky. Boy did I make a mistake when I picked this book up. It might as well read Amway Recruiting Manual. I tried Amway but it was not for me. Writing fantasy stories is more my cup of tea. Avoid this one if you can. =)
