We hear a lot in network marketing (MLM, Internet marketing, affiliate marketing, etc.) about relationship building, and how people do business with people they know, like and trust. We’ll call this Theory #1. Another common theory is that it’s not who you know but who THEY know. This is Theory #2.
Back in 2001, if memory serves, I decided to get into the field of merchant services such processing checks online and credit card processing. At a training class I attended, I met a man named Gary Kohr and his wife. Soon after the class, Gary introduced me to Ned Rae and his wife Cheryl. (Theory #2 at work!)
Under Gary, I joined an MLM company called SmartTravel. Ned was Gary’s sponsor. Long story short, I met another young man, Matt Morris. Matt was Ned’s sponsor. SmartTravel underwent some changes, as many MLM companies do and later closed its doors. We (the core group) moved to another MLM, and eventually Matt Morris opened his own company, Success University.
All through the process, I followed Ned and Cheryl Rae. We’ve maintained a friendship and working relationship for over 10 years now. (Theory #1 is alive and well.) Watching Ned evolve from the leader he was to the leader he is now has been a remarkable site to behold. And even more amazing has been Cheryl’s transformation.
So, what I’d like to share today is Ned’s story. He’s written an ebook called Passion and The Gift of Life. I would follow Ned to the ends of the earth; I would trust him with my life. His journey truly is inspiring. I hope that you will take something of value from his book.
Here are some comments about the book from leaders in the marketing industry…
