Here's a very interesting fact that just a few people know about...

Each year, more people get killed by Pigs than by Sharks. 6 times more to be exact!

(I think Sharks just get more attention because they're much scarier looking, and they don't taste very good.)

Now I believe this SAME stat applies to business too...

People are so worried about the 'Sharks', fierce competition, top affiliates, rising marketing and advertising costs...

When they should really be worried about the Pigs...

The Pig is short-term thinking in your business, it's wasting time with bad customers, it's that negative chatter going on in your head, it's not delivering value every time to your customers and leads...

  • It's email...
  • It's Facebook...
  • It's Skype...
  • It's Shiny Object Syndrome...
  • It's everything that keeps you from doing what you should be doing.
  • Do things RIGHT, and you're golden...
  • Advertising costs will be no issue...

You'll see fierce competition as an awesome thing and they'll become more like your partners (Seen SharkTank?)

And you'll be amazingly profitable and productive...

Plus, if you can think a little more long term about your business, you'll begin to think about the economics of it, the thing that will pull all of this together quite lovely for you.

Fix the economics of your business and brain here:

Longer term thinking reveals the simple truth that you need high profit margins in your business.

And the best way I know of to do this is on the back-end, as an affiliate, and as hands-free as humanly possible!

That's what MTTB gives you the opportunity to take advantage of:

Anything I can help with let me know!

It's time to ignore the sharks, make bacon out of the pigs, and join the ranks of the super successful...

What's the value of getting just one good question answered worth to you?...

Value= Priceless

Let me explain:

Have you ever seen the show 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?"...

I'm not for sure if it's even on anymore, I think Cedric the Entertainer now hosts it, however, it used to be the cats meow back when Regis Philbin was running the show...

Anyhoo, if you're not familiar with the program, the contestant is asked a series of questions, each one being harder than the last.

Now if he get's to the end and answers every question right?

He hits the jackpot...

1 million baby...

Yet here's the thing, nearly nobody knows EVERY answer, no matter how smart they think they are.

So in the show, you get 3 lifelines to help you out with the tough ones...

One of these lifelines is called: 'Phone-a-Friend'.

If you're progressing along just fine, and then ole Phil hits you with a question that you have NO CLUE what the answer is?...

How Much Do You Think Getting That Question Answered Would Be Worth To You?...

Could be worth a million right?!

Yes that one connection, that one call could be the magic ticket to getting the big win...

So here's the question we want to think about in this business and how this equates to us:

If you get stumped, if you need REAL solid help, if you just simply need a question answered to help you get to the next level in your business...

Wouldn't being able to 'phone-a-coach' be extremely valuable to you?

Yep, it would likely prove to be priceless!

Because here's a big problem I see right now...

When someone needs help with something, when they need a question answered, often times they'll go to Facebook and ask the question in some group.

Or, they'll go to one of these 'Forums' and ask it there. #sigh

The big issue is that everybody things they know something! And often times a newbie with less experience then the person asking the questions goes about giving you TERRIBLE ADVICE...

This type of stuff is holding so many people back! Be very careful who you listen to...

If you had a serious medical concern, you wouldn't go to the Doctor and let another patient in the waiting room give you your diagnosis would you?

No, you would wait, politely ignore their ramblings, and go get 'Expert' advice and help from the Doctor, the trained professional.

Now dealing with getting the help you need to become successful online 'could' be a challenge.

i.e. Knowing where to find the good advice.

Yet, that's what is so cool about MTTB.

You get your own personal Coach when you sign up.

These aren't your run-of-the-mill coaches either. We're talking 6 and 7 figure earners here. Folks that can coach you, can give you exactly what you need when you need it, and they will be there to give you reliable answers you can count on...

Besides the huge commissions that MTTB can give you the opportunity to earn, this Coaching is one of it's most incredible and helpful elements of the system.

In fact, your coaches as you'll discover, will land big commissions and profits FOR YOU.

They're like coaches with benefits...

So today I see this course being released on 'How To Launch Your Own Products'.

Now I don't have any clue whether it's actually a good product or not... And I won't be buying it to find out either.

Why not?

Well for one, it's only selling for $4.95.

Really?! You're going to give me a proven blueprint that can make me thousands of dollars, and you're just going to hand it to me for $4.95?

That doesn't instill much confidence in this actual product for me, and I'd venture to say that I'd go through it, and I'd reach the end with the simple takeaway that I need to start- Creating!

Now they'll probably sell several hundred copies of this product, people will buy, probably won't go through more than the first module, blah, blah, blah...

All that's all fine and dandy...

However, think about this. Over the past few years, there is the occasional release of another Launch Product that is an actual 'FORMULA'.

A real, legit launch formula that has been proven across hundreds of industries, has created countless 6 and 7 figure launches and businesses, and it just keeps working for people, over and over again!...

That course however doesn't sell for $4.95.

It sells for $2,000... Like Hotcakes.

Yep, the owner of this course has sold tens of millions of dollars worth of units, and that's not even including the high-ticket back-end sales he's bringing in as well.

And... people are HAPPY to pay that! It's changing lives. That is what a REAL FORMULA can do for you.

Both as a Seller and a Buyer...

The $4.95 doohickey? Well, that's just some ideas, some instructions most likely on how to do xyz..

And there is a very big difference between a 'how-to' course, and a proven blueprint or formula...

So you gotta think about this stuff...

Now, my point today has nothing to do with launching products. Not at all!

In fact, if you've ever attempted it before, you'll realize that it's a LOT of work, involves a ton of money, time, resources, having your own ideas, websites, affiliate manager and so forth...

The Key here is in finding Formulas that work along with the type of lifestyle you want to live.

That's why I settled on this:

This system teaches you a Formula, a proven System that does NOT require you to create new products and go through the very stressful launch phase of a business...

This formula is the only one I know of that can give you consistent, hands-off commissions of $1,000, $3,000, $5,000 commissions...

I say hands-off because the actual company has a process that closes these Big Ticket Sales for you, and YOU get a big cut of the commissions when they do...

It's a beautiful thing.

And, it's got thousands of success-stories, many six-figure incomes have been made already, and some are close to 7 figures now in commissions earned, all in just a few short years...

In fact though not typical, some start with MTTB and they're 6 figures within a few months.

That's the beauty of a real system. It works as soon as you start using the formula, and the more you use it, the faster and more successful you are!...

So, you can hop around looking for the next shiny object to buy, just to let it gather digital dust later.

Or you can go here now and pick up a system that works:

Have a great day,

Distributor Freedom, Cross Recruiting, a call to Ethics, and a Declaration of INTENT.

Originally, this blog post was intended to be longer, and more of a ‘formal’ declaration to the greater Network Marketing industry.

Unfortunately, in the process of massively re-engaging with our field leadership, remaking all of our core sales material, planning 3 regional events, launching a weekly bonus pool, and otherwise turning on ‘supernatural-beast-mode’ I don’t have time - so I’m going to keep this a rather concise, yet detailed enough rant to get the point across.


Most of this was covered in a conference call I did about 3 weeks ago, which you can listen to, and freely share in this post.


For an official stance, I decided to write this, to directly set straight an unfounded criticism and myth being perpetuated by either people who are trying to sell our affiliates and customers their products using unethical, dishonest tactics, or from straight misunderstandings.


So we’re going to hit the rumor first, and then come back to the message, and the real purpose of this blog post.


The Rumor Goes Something Like This:


Empower Network won’t allow you to promote multiple offers, or multiple Network Marketing businesses.  They randomly changed their terms of service several weeks ago, and are terminating people who are promoting multiple affiliate products.


Truth:  Empower Network was built by marketers, for marketers.  You can promote whatever you want here - that is not our business to monitor what businesses you want to build, and we have never terminated a single person (ever) for promoting 2 deals - or even 50.  In fact, we’ve allowed people to keep their checks who have left Empower, promoted other things, and directly bashed us to their email lists.


The REASON we do that is because of a fundamental belief that this company was founded with, that if you’re an affiliate, you’re an INDEPENDENT affiliate, and therefore can pick and choose what you want to market - and if we want to keep you, you must have freedom, and be here of your own free will.


See below on our real message for more.


We also didn’t change our terms of service, we re-organized them to be easier to read - except for adding a prohibition against directly and purposefully targeting other people’s teams in Empower Network if you’re an affiliate here - which I think you’ll agree, is a slimy, unethical business practice.


However, in re-organizing our terms of service, we did realize there are things in there that we don’t enforce anyways, never have, and are in the process of removing or rewording to be in line with our actual message.


Now, the reasons, message - and real INTENTION and MESSAGE of Empower Network:


The direct sales, affiliate marketing, and network marketing professions all GROW and attract new affiliates by a direct and specific message of freedom.


Whether it is financial freedom, time freedom, or the freedom to operate your business how you want - the message itself is and always has been freedom.


However, ‘freedom’ is the farthest thing from reality in most direct sales companies.  I had first hand experience in this when a team of affiliates left Empower Network in January of 2012, and joined a well known vitamin company.


They joined, taking as many people from Empower Network to that company as humanly possible, and in the process said some things that in all honestly — would have created a direct ‘termination response’ from every single Network Marketing company I’ve ever heard of.


However, the only thing we 'Terminate' at Empower Network, is wussy commissions.


So instead of turning into the ‘terminator’ — I did the unthinkable.


I called them, and said:


“Hey dudes - I love ya.  You come from here.  Your team comes from here.  You have a big check here - and it’s not going anywhere.  Can you do me a favor and knock it off?”


Bam!  Problem solved.  Amazingly, they all just stopped.


Because I just loved on em and gave ‘em all a big cosmic hug instead.


Here’s the funny thing, though:


Later, all these guys saw Empower Network taking off, and the truth was - their checks and their teams kept growing here.  So one day, Lawrence Tam (yes, he was on the team) he decided to start promoting Empower Network again.


He sent an email to his list, and…


The company they joined terminated him, Layla and Toby Black, and about 60-70 others.


It blew my mind — because that whole team had come from here, and we didn’t care.


The other company though, they threw a damned hissy fit.  I literally couldn't believe it.


So Lawrence came back, started building, and you know what?  He’s now one of ten “million dollar earners” at Empower Network.  Would have been pretty retarded of me to terminate him, wouldn’t it?


So I’m at our “FREEDOM” conference in Miami this January (appropriately named, right?) and run into a bunch of reps from another well known, international Network Marketing company.


Here’s the funny thing:


This company has a list of ‘competing companies’ — however, Empower Network isn’t on the list.  So you’d think an ‘independent distributor’ can do what they want, right?


Well, it turns out that ‘independent distributor’ has lost it’s meaning.


Because this whole team got terminated from big dumb company X for just being in Empower Network.  One of the reps asked a big wig at the company ‘what the hell?  I thought I was an independent rep?’


— and you know what the leader told them?


“You can’t do what you want here.  This is Corporate America with a 1099.”


Well excuse my language when I say … 


“What the F*%&?”


That certainly isn’t why I got involved as an ‘independent rep’ … that certainly isn’t why I STAYED an ‘independent rep’ … and that CERTAINLY isn’t why I STARTED Empower Network.


I fell in love with this profession for the message of Personal Freedom.


Now, with freedom comes responsibility, as the father of spider man would say, so this doesn’t give us a ‘Green Card’ to do unethical stuff… because life has a way of biting back, even if it’s not against the rules.


However - for heaven’s sake - if this is what Network Marketing has turned into, excuse me when I say “screw that.  I'll live in a Van instead.”


See, I believe that if you bring a customer to Empower Network - it was your hard work, your time, your effort, your hard earned advertising dollars, YOUR relationship.


And if you brought them here - you DESERVE to be paid according to our published compensation structure, regardless of whatever else you want to do.


Now that comes REGARDLESS of my personal philosophy, where PERSONALLY I believe that you’re much better off focusing your energy on one thing if you are like MOST PEOPLE.


I believe it’s better for you.


I believe it’s better for your team.


I believe you’ll be happier.


I believe you’ll make more money.


HOWEVER, you’re here to do what YOU WANT - NOT what I want.


If you don’t agree with me - you’re free to do what you want, as long as you’re following laws and ethics.


So I don’t care if you promote your vitamin deal.


I don’t care if you promote your skin care deal.


I don’t care if you promote your drop shipping deal.


I don’t care if you promote your attraction marketing system.


And if you want to quit - there’s a cancel button under every subscription product in the members area - you’re welcome to do whatever you want to do.


Because you’re an "INDEPENDENT" AFFILIATE.


To me that means I must win you over by the virtue of my leadership, by treating you right, by paying you more, by creating a more powerful message, by creating a better company, a better vision, a better culture, a SAFER place where you can BE who you WANT TO BE.


So that’s my mission here.


I will keep my leaders around by my example.


I will keep my team around by my vision.


I will keep my customers around by my service, and by giving them the BEST PRODUCTS.


And you are FREE to stay.


And you are equally FREE to go.


I just ask that you follow the laws, dammit.


Do income disclosures every time you talk about income claims.  A simple: * See our Average Earnings Disclosure HERE. in all your communications will do.  You can even affiliate code it by adding ?id=YOURUSERNAME to the end of the link.


I ask that you not market or build your business by infringing on other people’s trademarks, images, and copyrights.  It’s unethical, people hate it, and it sucks.


Let’s build a business in the marketplace based off of VALUE …


… and do whatever other businesses you want - just understand there are ‘life consequences’ to doing lame stuff.  It will bite you, eventually.


Empower Network is here to stay.


Our message is a message of freedom.


Our values are here to LIFT UP and EMPOWER others - not to tear them down.


So let’s lock arms, and fight the forces of evil.


Thank you for allowing me to clear up the B.S.


LISTEN to the call in this post - it will blow your mind how "on your side" we are at Empower Network.


And if you’re a big, evil company that terminates people because of your huge ass ego — I think you suck.  


Also, if you're a slimy hairbrain that is targeting our people, and lying to them to try and recruit them into your deal - you suck, too.


Make a note of that.


On your side,

-David Wood

Here Is A Community That Cares About Your Success


Truth of the matter is most people don't give a rat's behind about you or your success.

They just want the sale.

They just want a quick buck.

Sell ya and see ya!

We've all experienced that, and it sucks. Some of us just need a little help to 'make it happen'.

There's nothing wrong with that, and the help should be there.

We've got a group of 5,000 people who trust us. We have the talented staff and scalability to help you get to where you want to be... no matter how big or small that might be, and because of that, we have, BY FAR, the largest ratio of success stories in the entire industry.

Some people just want an extra few hundred bucks a month to cover bills and pay off debt.

Some people want a few thousand a week to develop a true 'lifestyle income'.

No matter where your goals fall - small, big, or in between, we have the system, the tools, the traffic, the staff, and the help and support to make it happen.

4 times a year we all get together at different locations...

San Diego, Miami, Denver, Dallas, D.C., Chicago...

Those are just a few places we've gone so far. Every 4 months we get together. We'll shake hands and hang out.

We spend time with you. We take you out to 5 star restaurants and spoil you with presidential suites at ball games. We personally mentor you and show you what we do and how we do it, live, in person, so you can fully understand this business.

Most important of all, we care about you. We care about your success. We believe in you, and we want to push you to excellence and prosperity.

But I know... talk is cheap. Let me put my money where my mouth is and give you the best experience you've ever had on your journey to success.

Get started right now, and it will be one of the best decisions of your life.

I'm here to empower, enhance, and benefit your life.

Let's make it happen,

Virgil Cook
