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 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

IMG_0308-0.JPG

“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!

IMG_0310-1.JPG

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

IMG_0303-0.JPG

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

IMG_0295.JPG

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 ...

The commitment that builds your network marketing business & financial freedom

The commitment that builds your network marketing business & financial freedom

So, last weekend, my company had a big event on. It was two days in two different locations. Both venues could hold 3000 people and the Saturday event sold out very quickly. I spoke to a relatively new distributor who lived about 40 minutes from the venue that sold out. So she booked for the alternate venue which was 4 hours away instead! I commended her on this commitment and ...

Network marketing – maybe it is a scam after all?!

Network marketing – maybe it is a scam after all?!

I was just thinking… about if network marketing business is a scam, *JK Rowling…scam. *The Beatles…scam. *Duncan Bannatyne…scam. *Donald Trump…scam. *That guy you think is cool cos he has loads of properties he rents out…scam.

Building relationships is key, even outside network marketing!

We should all know and understand that building our network marketing business is going to come through building relationships… I saw this story recently and thought it was an interesting take on how important this really can be in all walks of life. Julio Diaz has a daily routine. Every night, the 31-year-old social worker ends his hour-long subway commute to the Bronx one stop early, just so he can ...
