Nat Cook is a 5-time Olympian - winning gold for her homeland of Australia at the Sydney Olympics. She’s no stranger to hard work, conviction, determination and believing you can. Nat spent 20 years as a professional volleyball player, becoming one of the most well-known players the sport has ever seen. She proudly takes her gold medal with her everywhere she goes - believing it was meant to be shared, touched, and appreciated. After volleyball, Nat was left with a question: what comes next? As you’ll hear in this inspiring interview with David, network marketing came next. For Nat, it was a natural transition from the world of competitive sports to network marketing. She shares what the transition was like, some key learnings, and what she loves most about the business.

Why network marketing?

We’ve talked about the many misconceptions that exist about network marketing many times before. For Nat, she never really bought into that mindset. Even when she was playing volleyball, she recognized the value of network marketing and the world of possibilities the business opened up for those who work hard. And so, when an old friend started bringing a business opportunity to Nat, she eventually decided to give it a go. It was clear that many people have a negative perception about network marketing for one reason: it takes work. Nat shares her belief that too many of us today are about instant gratification and - well - that’s not what network marketing is. It takes hard work to succeed, but when you do you can succeed big time.

How do I make it better?

Nat shares the success of her mentor and friend who introduced her to the opportunity and why she believes their business has seen so much success. The key is being a leader. Nat shares why it’s important to lead with integrity and values, and to always focus on building a strong team. She discusses the financial success her friend has seen - in fact, the business she’s built with her husband is on track to make $1.5 million this year. Nat shares why she believes they’ve seen so much success - because they lead with their hearts and they are always present for the team.

If it’s not getting easier, you’re doing something wrong.

For Nat, working hard comes naturally. But, after making a few mistakes in the beginning, Nat started to learn what works and what doesn’t work in building a successful business with a solid team. She goes on to share a key piece of advice she was told early on: if it’s not getting easier, you’re doing something wrong. This resonated with Nat for many reasons, but mostly because it became clear that the business isn’t hard. It takes hard work, but the systems required to build a successful business aren’t difficult to learn.

Biggest learnings in the first year as a network marketer.

In the early days of her business, Nat and her partner went “all in”. Nat hit social media hard, cast a wide net, and started to attract loads of customers. The mistake? She wasn’t focusing on building a team, but was focused on selling products. In doing so, Nat was beginning to lose the authenticity of the business and - most importantly - the authenticity of herself. She gives insight into what she would do differently if she could go back and start over - including what is perhaps the most important thing: she would’ve said yes earlier. Nat is absolutely inspiring and open in sharing a glimpse into why she loves network marketing so much, as well as some key learnings that can help you build your own business.

When Alexis Romano first heard about the network marketing opportunity, she - like many of us - was skeptical. As a high school counselor, Alexis was working 3 jobs to make ends meet - and was still barely making it work. She was constantly exhausted and was left with no time to enjoy her life because she was always working. Alexis craved a better life, but believed the only to create one was to work multiple jobs in order to have a better lifestyle. That’s when she heard about the opportunity from a friend. As Alexis shares the story of her journey into the network marketing business, she offers valuable insight into what works - and what doesn’t - if you’re ready to succeed.

Overcoming skepticism and understanding the opportunity.

At first, Alexis didn’t want to hear about the opportunity. She was interested in the products, but wasn’t ready to learn more about the business. One day, Alexis reluctantly agreed to have someone share the opportunity with her. She listened and wasn’t sure if it was for her. Alexis decided to go to an upcoming event just to see what it was all about - and that’s when things changed. This event opened her eyes to what was possible and left her with a feeling of “If they can do it, why can’t I?”

The millionaire mindset shift.

5 years ago, when Alexis attended her first event, she was making about $3000 a month as a teacher, waitress, and tutor. When she took the plunge into the opportunity, she was able to replace her tutoring income in year 2, and would eventually retire from all jobs. Her income steadily grew and each year Alexis learned something new she could apply to her business to make it even more successful. She went from $7,000 to $13,000 to $25,000 to $64,000 to $900,000 in just 5 years. Today, Alexis is generating $100,000 a month from her network marketing business. A far cry from the $3k a month she was making from 3 jobs just a few short years ago.

The only way to fail is to quit.

For Alexis, it was important to learn each year in order to truly grow her business. In the beginning, she learned the value of having systems in place to make things run more efficiently. In year 2, she began to understand the influence of her mindset and realized it was time to make the shift to a millionaire mindset in order to pave the way for the life she wanted to create. Alexis grew to understand the value of personal development and investing in herself in order to take things to the next level. She shares the importance of affirmations in her journey and how they’ve helped to shape her life and her business.

The art of duplication.

As she closes out her chat with David, Alexis discusses her daily routine and how she maintains focus on the things that matter, while balancing it all. She makes personal development a part of her daily routine, which Alexis believes transformed not only her business, but also herself. She discusses the role of consistency in the business and shares why it’s all about the art of duplication. For Alexis, life today is a far cry from life 5 years ago. She has built a solid business and is well on her way to being a millionaire. Alexis offers insight into some steps she took to make it all happen and why it’s important to always invest in yourself first.

Just over 3 years ago, Dawn Ferrentino - like many of us - was working hard and had little time left for her family. This busy mom worked 2 jobs in order to generate the income the family needed. As a professional accountant for 27 years, Dawn found herself maxed out at less than $100k per year and she was always stressed and overwhelmed. She knew something had to change. The network marketing business opportunity came into her life quite by accident, but from the beginning Dawn treated it like a business. With hard work, determination, and the ability to get out of her comfort zone, Dawn has been able to build a hugely successful business in just over 3 years. She shares with David how she’s managed to embrace network marketing as a business and what has made the difference in her journey thus far.

Learning while you earn.

As an accountant, Dawn attended 4 years of school followed by the CPA exam. This investment in an education is essential for a traditional career like the one Dawn had prior to network marketing. She explains how she’s managed to generate her first million in just over 3 years in network marketing - earning while she learns the business. Dawn gives us insight into her approach to the business from the beginning and her willingness to fully immerse herself in the opportunity in order to see where it could take her. Even with resistance from people around her and with lots of “no’s”, Dawn persevered and managed to build a hugely successful business - and one that’s still growing.

The importance of meeting people where they are.

One of the toughest lessons for Dawn was realizing that this opportunity isn’t for everyone. She shares why it’s essential to meet people where they are - not where you are or where you think they should be. Understanding that this isn’t for everyone is a key ingredient to building a successful and happy team of network marketers. Dawn discusses how her income has grown - from 11k in her first year to 600k this year to her projection of 7 figures a year in just 3 years. She also shares how she grew her network from 5 people to a downline of 27,000 people in that time - after hearing no about 1000 times.

The path to 7 figures in network marketing.

One of the biggest misconceptions about network marketing, according to Dawn, is that it comes easy. She discusses the fact that it takes a lot of hard work and that’s why some people just aren’t cut out for the business. Dawn also shares what it was like at first, when her husband wasn’t quite sure that this could be a legitimate business and why she wishes she had done a better job of including her family in the journey from the start. Now - 3 years into it - her husband has retired and they have built a life that wouldn’t have been possible without network marketing.

The reward is the entire journey.

For Dawn, the reward isn’t just the money. She discusses what it’s like to work with a network marketing team and how they support each other along the way. Dawn also shares the value of personal development and why she focuses on making it a part of every single day. As David and Dawn finish out their chat, Dawn some key learnings and her advice for network marketers who are just starting out.

Living a life of design doesn’t come easy. It takes hard work, commitment, and a willingness to learn new things. For Shawn Owen, the journey from struggling teacher to successful network marketer came from was paved with an openness to the possibilities. By saying yes to an opportunity, Shawn and his wife have been able to create a life of freedom for their family. In this chat with David, Shawn shares how they designed a life to generate financial security while also creating the gift of time to be spent as they desired. By applying the philosophies of wealth creation, they have been able to create passive income and residual income and a life by design.

From teacher to wealth-maker.

Before he discovered network marketing, Shawn was a teacher. He and his family lived a frugal life, without much room for savings or vacations. Shawn eventually made his way into corporate America, which allowed for more financial security, but left little time to truly enjoy life. Network marketing changed everything. Shawn explains that his willingness to try something new and go all in truly made it possible to succeed and create the life he wanted for his family. After finding his own brand of success in network marketing, Shawn knew he wanted to apply his love of teaching in order to help others find financial freedom.

The power of learning to be wealthy.

Shawn explains why it’s important to learn to be wealthy. He shares why this is essential to creating financial freedom and offers insight into how he applied this to his own life. For Shawn and his wife, it was about setting a clear goal from the beginning of what “success” looked like financially and - most importantly - sticking to that goal. He also discusses the role of a financial freedom account and paying yourself first. Applying these basic philosophies of wealth, Shawn says, played a key role in their success.

The value of personal development.

Shawn is a huge proponent of personal development. In fact, it’s such a huge part of his family’s routine, that it’s not unusual to walk in on his kids reading a John Maxwell book. He explains why personal development is so essential to success and the fact that we are only limited in our financial growth by the investments we make in ourselves. Shawn shares his belief that we are our most valuable asset and that’s why personal development is at the core of his business.

Why you need to track your wealth.

For Shawn, wealth isn’t about opulence. Rather, it’s about being clear on the life you want and making sure you create those opportunities. For his family, it’s about time together and the ability to travel. Shawn explains why a huge house and expensive trinkets aren’t what drives him, and how - even with such an increase in income - they’ve maintained the same lifestyle through it all. He leaves us with a final thought: anyone can do it. Shawn shares his belief that adopting a couple of the financial principles he shared can truly transform your financial picture. It’s not about opulence for Shawn and his wife; it’s about designing a life filled with the things that matter.

Three years ago, Peta Kelly realized some things would need to change in order for her to follow her true path. As she stood at a crossroads, she decided to go in the direction that was a little less certain and comfortable - all because of what she believed could happen. Peta began a journey of self-discovery, which would lead to her all-important “why”. Inspired by the sacrifices her mother made in raising Peta and her siblings, Peta knew she had to work towards allowing her mother to retire. With her why at the forefront, Peta went full steam ahead into the world of network marketing.

From struggling PhD student to hugely successful network marketer.

At the young age of 25, Peta has seen her income increase exponentially in a very short time. She credits her ability to maintain focus on her why as the fuel that drove her to keep pushing forward. Before delving into network marketing, Peta was a PhD student on scholarship, earning $500 a week. She worked side jobs as a trainer to make ends meet. Peta explains that she was happy then, but she knew something was missing. Her goal was to make a difference in the world and to find her true path. So she pressed ahead and worked on identifying what life could be like if she took some chances.

Following a path of uncertainty, fueled by the possibilities.

As Peta stepped into the world of network marketing, she didn’t have any preconceived notions, expectations, or ideas about the business. She was a virtual blank slate - a sponge willing to soak up all of the knowledge and systems that make network marketing great. She went from a PhD student with a fairly certain path ahead of her, to a network marketer with no idea how it would all work out. What Peta did have was a willingness to work hard and invest in herself. She shares the value of going into the business with eyes and heart wide open - ready to learn.

The value of working on yourself.

The most important part of the journey, Peta says, has been the investment in herself. She believes that success in network marketing isn’t about the product or the compensation plan, but about the person behind it. If you take the time to work on yourself, the sky is the limit. Peta also discusses why it’s important to stop being attached to the “why” and the “how” - and you you need to live and breathe your “why”. She also delves into her approach with developing leaders and why this is essential to her success. Peta offers insight into her approach of leading with a vision using network marketing as a vehicle.

Creating a life of abundance and freedom at any age.

Peta works with people who are ready to be leaders and transform their lives. She explains that a large percentage of people are 26 or younger, because Peta proved success is possible at any age. Her mission is to help young people understand that they can strive for complete and utter inner and outer freedom - at any age. In closing, Peta offers some advice to people who feel stuck in the world of network marketing. There’s no doubt that Peta’s story is inspiring, motivating, and downright magical. Learn more about Peta’s accomplishments on this week’s episode of Amplified Network Marketing.

Today’s guest, Jim Coover, is a mentor and inspiration to host David TS Wood. David has witnessed the integrity and true measure of Jim’s character by watching him when he thinks no one is paying attention. Along with wife, Kathy, Jim is a legend in the Network Marketing arena. Jim is president and CEO for Isagenix, a billion dollar company the couple came out of retirement to co-found. Jim is a wealthy and successful businessman who could be sprawled out in a hammock somewhere on a private island. Instead, Jim remains in the trenches, pursuing results in people’s lives and global change in health and wellness. His company offers the opportunity and vehicle for people to transform their lives. Today’s conversation focuses on the story behind the success, as well as turning points along the way. No matter your circumstances, make the choice today to change your life and pursue success. This episode of Amplified Network Marketing offers inspiration you won’t want to miss.


Possibility and responsibility

When Jim wakes up in the morning, his thoughts are often of possibility and responsibility. He sees life as an opportunity to write his own story. He lives each day with the intention to be the best he can be and to positively influence as many people as he can. There are a lot of people looking to him to look after the enterprise and he takes his responsibilities seriously. Of course, the load is shared, but Jim feels a deep sense of commitment to the whole company. Circumstances presented themselves and Jim came out of retirement to realize an opportunity to impact world health. He believed he had a vehicle to realize his vision and took the necessary risks. Along the way, there were struggles and naysayers. Jim was deeply committed to getting his company’s ideas into the marketplace and into people’s lives. Integrity and trust were big lessons Jim learned, which are now evident in his relationship with his wife and family. They each bring greatness and skills to the business and their relationship. This couple, despite their success and humble beginnings, never limited their impact. Listen in to unleash your own possibility of impact.

The early years

Growing up, Jim thought of himself as a “little guy.” He was a little brother and two years younger than most of his classmates. Since he was younger and smaller, competing athletically was a challenge. He was introduced to bodybuilding his senior year, which became a defining moment and realization that he was engaged in attainable transformation if he worked for it. Jim no longer thought he was destined to be small. He got excited, saw results, and recognized that he could be in control. During his time working out at the gym, Jim noticed what professions allowed people to work out whenever they wanted. He decided to learn to cut hair to support himself and keep up his fitness routine. Jim was paid on commission, so his earnings were tied to personal performance and relationships with people. He gained confidence and made connections as his paradigm shifted into building a business by offering a unique service. He took up men’s hair styling, incorporating the sale of products for men to upkeep their new looks. Hear the whole story of Jim’s successful launch into the fitness industry on this episode of Amplified Network Marketing.  

Transformation and traps

Jim is familiar with a whole gamut of struggles in health and fitness. When he was small he struggled to gain weight, and then gained too much weight, too quickly. He remembers the way people looked at him differently and can identify with people who struggle with their weight. He knows the physical and the emotional suffering that often accompanies the struggles. Jim is now in the business of transforming people’s lives by transforming their health. He talks about being a product of your experiences and how people can still view themselves as fat even after a physical transformation. It takes awhile for people to uncondition themselves from what being overweight held them back from. The changes Jim made in his own life impacted all areas of his life. It gave him greater confidence and the ability to apply similar disciplines in other areas of his life. He has worked with a lot of people with weight issues and worked to undo the damage of eroded confidence and disbelief in self. Don’t miss the discussion of Jim’s transformation personally and in business on this episode!


Validation from the global impact

Jim loves Network Marketing. The validation for its existence comes from the global impact it is having. People might not understand what Network Marketing truly is, but Jim spells it out. His passion for health and fitness helped to build a vehicle for transformation physically and financially. He has seen the average person take control of their own life through his business.  He built an asset that keeps giving and a relationship business.  His success is directly proportionate to how many people he is helping. People are getting their lives back from health, and then adding an incremental income. What separates Jim and his company is their commitment to a culture of safety and support.

Today’s guest, Sarah Rowan Dahl, is a performance painter. Sarah is established and experienced in this unique, creative outlet in the entertainment industry. She seeks not only to entertain, but also to inspire. Sarah brings a creative work of art to life in front of people in a live setting. Often she enhances the performance by painting to music, allowing the tones, notes and sounds to create the colors on the canvas. It is really Sarah’s quirky personality that connects with the audience and adds the buzz of energy that draws a crowd. Sarah performs for various types of events and functions, from the corporate setting, to festivals, fundraisers, weddings, and zoos. Sarah believes creativity is innate in us all and strives to awaken it in people who have forgotten how. Her courage has pushed the limits in performance art and the platform it establishes. Listen to the conversation with David T.S. Wood to be inspired and motivated to rediscover your own creativity.


A platform for the voiceless.

Sarah uses her talent and work to raise awareness and funds for charities, such as The A21 Campaign, focused on ending human trafficking. Frequently, her performance pieces from functions will be auctioned off for charity. Sarah may not have the money in her pocket to donate much to these organizations, but her paintings inspire others to give. Human trafficking is the primary cause that Sarah donates to. Organizations like A21 work against the perpetrators that find families in dior circumstances, buy their children off of them, and either work them in an underground industry, rape them, sell them, or all of the above. This is a global crisis Sarah cannot ignore, especially as a mother of two young daughters. It might make people uncomfortable, but it is something Sarah says we should be uncomfortable about. She is a freedom fighter, able to use art as a platform and tool to raise money and awareness for such a great cause. You’ll want to hear this one.


Art bypasses age, cultural, and language barriers for a global impact.

Sarah’s creativity started with doodling. She was on a basketball scholarship in college and went to Brazil to teach kids basketball. Sarah, not knowing the language very well, used doodling  to communicate with the kids. She realized that art was a way to bypass cultural and language barriers. She wanted to inspire people globally and found a breakthrough in art. Art crossed bridges and equalized people from all over the world. Soon, Sarah found herself going after a BFA, studying to be an artist. The move to performance art came because no one teaches how to make a living at art. Historically, students pursuing art have a lot of jobs. Sarah, like most of her classmates, took up waitressing. One day, she decided she would either do what she loved, or starve trying. Sarah started an art business, combining her love of art and using it to communicate and entertain across barriers. About half of Sarah’s current performances are improvised. She does more mental prep than actual paint planning. Her courage is contagious and will have you pulling out a paintbrush by the end of the episode.


Addressing the result of devaluing art and creativity.

Why do so many people opt out of creativity? Why is it dismissed in the corporate world or silenced in adults? Sarah says that there has been a recent embrace of the arts that was missing since the rise of the Industrial Revolution. There was not an artistic encouragement to most people’s lives and the fear of fitting in or gaining approval silenced so many. Sarah’s mission is to inspire people to get rid of those inner fears holding them back. If you just try, you might find that you actually can be creative. Sarah understands the mocking of a blank canvas and is her own worst critic. She wants to give people a paintbrush, especially those that would label themselves as “non-creative.” They feel they do not have it in them, they have boundaries and blocks, but there is an innate desire to create. Sarah has seen businessmen cry during her corporate event performances when she invites them into something creative. For many, it is the first time they have felt alive in years. Inside of everyone is a creative child. Go hang out with one if you have forgotten. Address your own reasons for steering clear of creativity on this episode of Amplified Network Marketing.


Inspiring creativity and silencing the inner critic.

Sarah loves to help people increase their creative capacity. One simple way? Start brushing your teeth with your non-dominant hand. Or learn how to juggle. Allow your brain the space to work at wrapping itself around something and be challenged. Sarah has her own inner critic and fear of failure. She is learning to see “failures” as experiments instead. Some of her greatest works have come out of these “mistakes.” Australian culture has taught Sarah to relax. Soon after moving there, she was taught the phrase, “Have a go, ya mug,” which roughly translates to, “If you have an idea, go for it.” Her inner voice used to spell out all the reasons that her ideas would flop. Her move to Australia, and other global travels are the keys to her creativity. Sarah recommends going where you have not been and living where you have not lived. Get rid of distractions and get into nature. Sarah’s favorite thing is to get lost on purpose. It stimulates creativity unlike any other experience. Our relationship between our self doubt and our ability to create is directly linked. You have to silence that self doubt to start creating. Learn how to incorporate creativity into your everyday on this episode of Amplified Network Marketing.

Adam and Michelle Carey have made plenty of mistakes as Network Marketers. They dove into this profession unprepared as young twenty-somethings, but learned to harness their passion and approach their business with etiquette and integrity. Adam and Michelle found they were not alone in learning the ropes the hard way. They decided the gap in etiquette training needed to be addressed if the industry hoped to gain momentum and be respected as a profession. There is a shift happening today, away from old approaches to business and towards Network Marketing. The Carey’s mission is to add some manners to that momentum. They aim to accelerate success, alleviate rejection, and elevate Network Marketing as a profession. They speak as seasoned ambassadors, with the desire to see unity among Network Marketers. Adam and Michelle believe the industry will boom if professionals come together, not to recruit one other, but to support each other. Listen in to this etiquette training episode to stay classy as a Network Marketer.


Personal growth is as important to Network Marketing as food and water are to your survival.

From the inception of Network Marketing as a profession, it has offered a different path than that of traditional business. People have developed freedom for themselves and exploded their personal growth. Network Marketers are able to grow into themselves and then grow their income. Adam Carey advises that neglecting personal growth inhibits any chance you have to make it in this industry. Michelle Carey adds that the entire profession is built to help people grow. The couple gets most fired up about seeing that growth and character development in their team members. They believe in this industry so fiercely because it has made them better individuals, spouses, business owners, and now parents. Their desire for themselves as well as their team, is for no one to stop growing. They help people, help people. Give a listen to the Carey’s daily method of operating and the areas of growth they emphasize.


Comparison is a cancer in the Network Marketing industry.

The biggest hindrance to your own success might just be you. Adam points out that the spirit of comparison trapped him early on in his career. The industry exposed him to leaders and people who successfully reached the highest ranks with seemingly no hindrances.  When he came across his own struggles and obstacles, it was tempting to think he did not measure up.  This can hinder anybody’s growth and distort perspective. But comparison did not serve Adam and it will not serve you. Embrace the inspiration available, but stay on your own journey. Your trials produce perseverance and authenticity. As a team leader, Adam is now able to relate to doubts and fears of his team members. The mission behind the Adam and Michelle’s movement is learning from mistakes they made. They are still on their journey, and it is one that elevates the profession as a whole, not their status. Adam says comparison can lead to cannibalising each other, which destroys the industry from the inside out. Learn how to hold yourself and your team to a high standard on this episode of Network Marketing.


Addressing etiquette to eliminate stigmas.

Are you a defensive tackler?  Or a motor mouth?  Negative Nancy?  Poor-me Paul? Do you “bait and slam” people you are attempting to recruit? Adam and Michelle have labeled these common blunders to help you identify your areas of weakness.  Michelle, who used to be a “defensive tackler,” shares stories of mistakes she made early on in her attempts to defend her belief in the Network Marketing industry. People would say, “Is this just a pyramid scheme” and she would unleash fury on them.  Her defensive reaction closed people off and perpetuated misunderstandings of what Network Marketing really is.  A wrong approach can have repercussions that leave people feeling lied to or full of negativity towards the industry. Failing to communicate realistic expectations can be just as damaging.  Adam and Michelle took their journey seriously. They made this profession their Plan A and Plan B.  Listen to their commitment to perpetuate the truth, benefits, and freedom of this profession.


The birth of a book from actual mistakes made.

Adam and Michelle began compiling their mistakes for a newsletter or ebook, but the list kept growing beyond that capacity. They are now awaiting the publication of their book, “Don’t Be “That Guy” In Network Marketing: 21 Common Mistakes.”  They have personal stories of bad approaches in recruiting, mixed up mindsets, and a wide array of reactions to their new profession from friends and family. Network Marketers can relate to these 21 blunders, see their own mistakes, and be encouraged to work with etiquette.  Some people have stigmas associated with Network Marketing, and the profession still struggles to be taken seriously.  It is the job of the insiders to change the trajectory of it’s reputation.  Adam and Michelle are attempting to shift the culture and change how Network Marketers approach people. They believe the industry can seize the opportunity to attract people and repair damages that bad interactions have caused. The fun energy on this episode will leave you inspired to participate in fueling a new culture of Network Marketing.

Today’s guest is a man of true integrity with an infectious energy. He’s the CFO of “The Comedy Store” chain of comedy clubs and a CPA who has helped many people work through their baggage and problems surrounding money. Bob Wheeler offers a simple and effective method for everyday people to create a healthy relationship with money. His crusade for holistic personal growth has cross-pollinated with his accounting practice to deliver a new approach to personal finances. Bob explores the emotions surrounding financial decisions in his recent book, The Money Nerve: Navigating the Emotions of Money. His passion is to help others gain insight on why their emotions trigger financial decisions.


How did Bob get started helping people with money issues?


While he was building his accounting practice, Bob came across client after client who not only had money problems, but those problems almost always stemmed from negative experiences or beliefs the person had relating to money. He began to experiment with simple tools to help his clients unpack the baggage they carry regarding money and has developed a witty and non-judgmental approach to personal finance that provides guidance for all to create a new path to financial freedom. You can get some insight into the way Bob approaches this complicated issue, on this episode.


Money manipulations can have a long lasting impact.


When Bob Wheeler was a child, one set of grandparents worked overtime to gain the favor of him and his siblings. They often received gifts, money, and lavish experiences from them. As a child Bob naturally thought it was great, until he began to realize that the “payoff” that was expected from his grandparents was not something he wanted hanging over him. What was the payoff? Bob tells the story so well, you’ve got to hear his rendition - and you can on this episode of Crank It Up.


The power of tracking your monthly expenditures.


Most people believe that they know where they are spending their money. But if they’ve never created an intentional way of tracking their spending, it’s likely there are leaks in their financial boat that they simply aren’t aware of. On this episode, Bob Wheeler takes us into a very practical exercise to help us become aware of those leaks and provides some simple ways those leaks can be plugged. Are you interested? Find out more on this episode.


Let go of your old story about money.


What do you really believe about money? Do you even know? Ask yourself some of the following questions: Do you think rich people are greedy? Is there enough money in the world for all the needs? Are you capable of earning more? Are you deserving of it? These kinds of questions open up the door to the beliefs you may have about money that are not serving you well. On this episode, CPA and author, Bob Wheeler, guides all of us through some of the basic ideas in his new book in an effort to turn on the lights so we can see what we truly believe about money and ourselves.

Today, Tracy O’Malley is an admired and respected network marketing team leader.  It would be easy to dismiss her success as unattainable for the average professional pursuing network marketing - unless you hear how her story began.  A few years back, Tracy found herself in the chaotic crisis of dealing with divorce, being a single mother, the sudden death of a parent, and the insufficient income to keep a roof over her head.  Listen in as Tracy openly invites us into her past life of negativity, unhealthy coping mechanisms, and checking herself into rehab. Her authentic struggle to overcome personally and professionally is relatable no matter what your rock bottom looks like. You will be inspired by Tracy’s honest and brave story of choosing to change her life.


Crisis as a catalyst for beginning a network marketing profession

Sometimes it takes a crisis to propel us forward to where we could and should be.  Had Tracy O’Malley not reached the bottom, she might never have found the gumption to fight to the top.  Life at the bottom was broken, which led to being broke, which led to coping mechanisms that landed her in rehab. It took facing rehab for Tracy to trust wise counsel, and be open to opportunities.  A network marketing option fell into her lap when she was actually willing to try something different, anything different.  Tracy committed to an intimidating beginning, grew her business exponentially, and is passionate about bringing people alongside her in her success.  It is a story that will breathe bravery into you.

Network Marketing gains credibility by taking off your masks

What kind of masks do you wear? How do you present yourself in social situations and on social media? Tracy has found that authenticity sells itself.  She went from realizing she was surrounded by jerks and was the biggest jerk of them all, to creating a powerful following both on social media and in her network marketing company. Tracy credits taking off the masks she wore for years to her success.  It is hard work releasing the expectations of others, but it left Tracy with the discovery of her true passion and purpose.  Hear how she faced her fears, and let go of caring what other people thought to grow herself, her team, and her business.

Creating freedom and the first steps toward success


Taking a step towards change came at the bottom of the bottom for Tracy.  But how did she find that determination and belief that life could be different and better for her and her family? Tracy knew she wanted the financial ability to uproot herself the next time her presence was needed in a crisis. She knew that network marketing provided that ability - she could continue working to build her empire and be present for her kids, her aging mom, and the things that really matter at the end of the day. Tracy’s journey demonstrates that network marketing creates momentum that not even the inconveniences of life can slow down.  This episode of Amplified Network Marketing aids in identifying your hurdles and leaping over them.

Follow the leaders to become a leader


Tracy is a self-proclaimed rule breaker that doesn’t like being told what to do. But to make it through rehab and onto the right road, she listened to her sponsor, gleaned valuable knowledge from mentors and pursued leaders who had gone before. Listen to her “tough love” advice about following in her footsteps, learning from the mistakes of others, and deciding if you want to be a dabbler and get dabbler’s results or if you are committed to the process that leads to success.  Tracy knows it is all about building relationships and being able to connect to a community that works together.  Hear how you can join in, on this episode of Amplified Network Marketing.

The Amplified Network Marketing show is all about passive and residual income streams… not only through the vehicle of Network Marketing. The reason is simple: Network Marketers know a good residual income opportunity when they see one and are always looking for ways to diversify their income through multiple income streams. Today’s guest, Matt Miller, has created a hugely successful vending company that provides the kind of residual and passive income that hits the bullseye, and David wanted to expose you to his opportunity to see if it’s a good fit for you.

An influential book and a bold step into another world.

Matt was exposed to Robert Kiyosaki’s book, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” years ago, and totally bought into his philosophy of building passive and residual income streams. But he’d failed to truly act on it for years. When a friend at his church approached him about a business opportunity involving vending machines, Matt’s thoughts about Robert’s book came back to him and he immediately saw the opportunity he’d been waiting for. He jumped in with both feet and has progressed way beyond simply having a few machines in businesses. He’s built his own franchise opportunity that families all over North America are using to build their own passive and residual income streams. Find out more on this episode.

If you’re business is going to thrive, you’ve got to be bold enough to knock on doors.

It doesn’t matter how ingenious of an opportunity you find to make passive income, if you’re unwilling to step outside your comfort zone and do what it takes to get customers, you’ll waste the opportunity. Matt Miller learned that when he got into the vending business and started knocking on the doors of decision makers at local schools to place his vending machines. Many doors were closed in his face, other administrators were kind but rejected the idea. But he kept asking, he kept knocking, and over time he found the customers that he knew would enable his business to grow and thrive. You can hear Matt’s story of perseverance and success on this episode of Amplified Network Marketing.
