Wes Linden

Author of Amazon best-selling book ’79 Network Marketing Tips’

Wes Linden has never had a conventional job, having failed to complete his degree and drop-out long before completing Wes Linden MLM Mastermind Eventhis teacher-training course. Yet he came across a network-marketing business and has worked with that same company for over 15 years. Having built one of the largest and most successful organisations with an expected team turnover of £60m (over $100m), Wes has become a highly-coveted speaker and consultant for network-marketing businesses outside of the UK in various parts of Europe and 2013 culminated in him becoming the first ever Brit to speak at the 3-day Mastermind event in Orlando, alongside such big names as Randy Gage, Jordan Adler, Orrin Woodward, Art Jonak, Sarah Robbins and Tom ‘Big Al’ Schreiter. Wes also had a mini-tour of America speaking alongside Big Al and appeared as a speaker in the Caribbean on the MLM Cruise.

The skills required to live a network marketing lifestyle


I sat in a coffee shop this morning for an hour or so doing some stuff on the laptop in preparation for my slot at the Network Marketing Mastermind Event in Orlando in November. Thousands of people from hundreds of countries and companies come together for a 3 days of learning and development from some of the top network marketers in the world, in a safe, prospecting-free zone. People were ...

Sometimes it’s the ‘little’ stories that win in network marketing


This morning I was getting ready to go onto stage at the network marketing event I am speaking at in Sofia, Bulgaria, where they were launching the translated version of my book ’79 Network Marketing Tips’ for the Eastern European market, and I was fortunate enough to read a Facebook status of a very close friend of mine, about his mum being promoted within our network marketing business. Not only ...

Do business with people who do business with you in network marketing


Ooooops….. So believe me, when you do get yourself up to the top of your plan, and you write a book, it doesn’t make you immune to awkward long-term conversations with friends! Let me tell you about that slightly awkward moment when you go to meet an old friend…. He isn’t in your business nor is he a customer…. In fact, he was a ‘no’ who also ‘knew it all’ ...

Gardening is the same as network marketing!


Right that’s it. This doesn’t work. I planted 3 or 4 seeds in my garden yesterday and they haven’t grown yet. My neighbour has loads of lovely plants and flowers – he’s obviously lucky. Would you believe that some people apply the same principle to building their own business? Or….could it be my neighbour puts in lots of time, planting seeds, watering them, nourishing them, caring for them, and because ...

In 2034 how many lives will your network marketing business have changed?


The following post will make some people squirm a little… It’s the year 2034… Who would bet against this being the reality for most people? Soup and food kitchens, volunteer-run, in most villages and towns – providing the much-needed extras for working families that simply can’t afford three meals a day. Community centres, religious buildings and disused shops, offices and business premises, run by charities, that provide daytime seating, warmth ...

Building a real community in network marketing


“My team”, “my distributors”, “The Smith Team”, “my downline”, “my recruit”, “my agent” – this is language innocently used by many people on their leadership journey. At best, no harm is meant by it. However, I often have a quiet word with people and ask them to consider how it may actually sound to an entrepreneur who wants to break free of being employed and under someone elses’ charge. You’ll ...

How to spot a network marketing superstar!


If you’re active in your network marketing business and you are regularly speaking to people, you’ll recognise what I experienced recently. I did a follow-up call to someone who had watched the recruitment video. My jaw hit the ground and never regained its’ proper resting place with some of what he was saying: “I’m gonna have 500 to 1000 customers in 6 months…” “Ok. Which one? 500 or 1000?” I ...

Network marketing v franchising


I was chatting to a good friend of mine recently, who owns a few franchises, of one of the biggest name businesses out there. Interestingly, he also has a network marketing business. A few things struck me: *It costs him around £150,000 for each store he opens, in start-up costs. *Most people who could become a customer actually walk straight past his store, so in theory he gets lots of ...

How to monitor your network marketing progress in 30 seconds


A few weeks back I was at Barcelona airport heading home after a quick break. It was a late Sunday evening flight. I couldn’t resist taking this picture: Why does the queue to get on the plane home always look more miserable for the non-network marketers? I thought they had it all sussed with the 45 year/one holiday a year plan? What we do has irritations, stresses and frustrations. And ...
