3.0 out of 5 starsInspirational
Reviewed in the United States on August 9, 2016
This isn't a 'how to', but instead a brief view of why Network Marketing is worth exploring. It's filled with stories of people who have made it big in the business and has some facts that help to address any naysaying. While there are some valuable words of wisdom and it is inspirational, it doesn't address the hundreds of thousands of people who don't make it and the challenges and realities of the business. Like anything nothing is perfect, not even Network Marketing! This book feels more like a cheerleading squad, trying to help motivate the masses. I'm all for network marketing and while this is a fun read, I prefer a more objective and in depth look.

I would say a must read for anyone thinking about or getting into Network Marketing. Lots of insights on the positive end. The negative, one needs to be self motivated. For me, that is a good thing. You will not be wasting your money or time with this insightful book on home based businesses and networking. .
3.0 out of 5 starsFor the beginner to network marketing
Reviewed in the United States on March 7, 2016
If you are trying to decide whether to delve into network marketing this is probably a good book for you because it addresses the benefits and also dispels some myths. If you're already in network marketing or familiar with the basics it will likely be repetitive for you. A large portion of the book was a section of personal success stories of people from an assortment of companies. I was expecting more actual information than anecdotes. For a beginner it might be great, but it wasn't really worth my time.

What I liked about this book was that it wasn't company-specific - it was just an unbiased explanation of the role of network marketing in our world today. The book contained wonderful examples & facts regarding what so many believe to be a "taboo" career field - it's simply people who love a product or service, and they found a way to get paid for that love. It crushes the ideas of "instability" or "pyramid schemes" in a way that isn't trying to win you over, but instead just presents you with information to make your own decision.
This isn't exactly a how to live the life of your dreams but if you need some convincing that it's possible to have it all and to create it all, this book will do it! I highly recommend this easy read for all of my team members to get them thinking about what could be and to get them believing that they can decide to create their own success!
5.0 out of 5 starsAmazing, Inspiring, and so true!!

I chose this rating because this book took all my thoughts of network marketing and put it on paper and then set me straight. As someone who is just barely jumping in I have been cautiously optimistic that this could work despite all those in have linked arms with who have made network marketing a success. reading what has been my own thoughts out loud and reading the truth and facts as well as the successes was so helpful, enlightening, and inspiring. I would recommend this book to anyone thinking of jumping in to this industry or to give to all those who think you decision is a bad idea. They don't know what they are talking about!
