Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Network Marketing, But Were Afraid To Ask | July 26, 2010

Why I’m Writing This Blog

I’ve had a some people ask me what books I recommend . I thought this would be a good opportunity to let you know what my favorites are, and why. And then open up the discussion and have you comment back and tell me which books, videos, etc. are your favorites and why.

My First Choice

My first choice is Inside Network Marketing by Leonard W. Clements, not because this is a how-to book that tells you how to do network marketing and achieve your dreams, but more because it’s an eyes-open insider’s look at network marketing.  As Mr. Clements says in the introduction, which he calls Read This Before You Proceed, ”… this book isn’t about getting rich. It’s about getting rich with knowledge. If anything, it’s more about how not to lose money in MLM.”

Mr. Clements sub-titled the book “An Expert’s View into the Hidden Truths and Exploited Myths of America’s Most Misunderstood Industry,” so if you haven’t read this one, you’re in for a treat of little known facts about the industry, and it includes a list of resources for further study.

Second Choice

My next choice is a book called Your First Year In Network Marketing by Mark Yarnell & Rene Reid Yarnell. This is one of the best that I’ve read on off-line network marketing. It goes into all the ins and outs, what to expect, what it takes, where to start, how to get trained, how to train, staying focused, maintaining enthusiasm, and many others.

In the foreword, written by Richard Poe, also an author of books on network marketing, Mr. Poe says, “This is a book that every first-time networker needs to read. It shows you exactly where the pitfalls lie and how to avoid them. And it does so in language that anyone can understand, reinforcing each point with inspiring, real-life anecdotes. For those networkers who take their business seriously, Your First Year In Network Marketing is, quite simply, indispensable.”

A Video

My next pick is a video called Brilliant Compensation. This presentation was put together and narrated by Tim Sales, a network marketer who put together this video to handle the “is this network marketing/mlm” objection. He does it brilliantly, using an analogy to a type of business that most people are at least somewhat familiar with. It also includes Dr. Charles King, a college professor who offered the first college course in network marketing.

Final Pick

My last recommendation of this blog is The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson. Although Mr. Olson made his fortune from network marketing, this is not a network marketing book per se. It is a book that teaches you why some people succeed where others don’t, the slight edge that makes the winners who they are. And how you can become a winner by using the slight edge.

So, What Are Your Favorites?

I want to know what your favorites are. What book taught you the most? What book inspired you the most? What speaker or video turned things around for you and put you squarely on the road to success? What book have you read more than once?

I want to hear from you, write me back in the comments and let me know what your picks are. I look forward to hearing from you.
