Hi guys,

My name is Ryan from Australia. I have ended up here hoping to find answers to problems I have not solved. I had a background in network marketing (MLM) and my tactics involved spending way too much in advertising fees to get leads. I am a fairly introverted guy so I did rely on spending money on ads which resulted in a failed business plan. I am well acquainted with Robert Kiyosaki books and really enjoyed the write up about MLM in the TMF .

I have come across top MLMers and have always noticed they sell self help books as their core part of business which seems to make up most of their income. I have moved on from MLM as a distributor and have played poker part time in the last 7 years.

I hope to be able to write a book, learn foreign currency trading and build a software program.
I have paid for an insider membership - I'm not sure when I will be able to access it.

Hi Ryan, from Australia. You want answers, I get that…

First, it sounds like you are assessing that your business plan failed because of these problems:
  1. I had a background in network marketing (MLM)
  2. my tactics involved spending way too much in advertising fees to get leads
  3. I am a fairly introverted guy
  4. I did rely on spending money on ads

Next, your current possible solutions:
  1. I am well acquainted with Robert Kiyosaki books and really enjoyed the write up about MLM in the TMF .
  2. I have come across top MLMers and have always noticed they sell self help books as their core part of business which seems to make up most of their income.
  3. I have moved on from MLM as a distributor and have played poker part time in the last 7 years.

Finally, your own assessment of your skills/interests are:
  1. I hope to be able to write a book
  2. I hope to be able to learn foreign currency trading
  3. I hope to be able to build a software program.
  4. I have paid for an insider membership.

Well, here is my advice, if I may be so bold…
  1. If you want to read a good book with helpful insights to your “problems” read MJ’s book The Millionaire Fastlane .
  2. Look at your list of skills/interests, which I’m sure are more than you’ve mentioned. Why do you keep revisiting the MLM idea? There seems to be other options for you, just look at your 1, 2, and 3.

Hi Hanalore,
I have read TMF and enjoy the book thoroughly. I mentioned MLM not because I live in the past but to give you a background of what I have done to create passive income and failed in the process. I probably wouldn't have discovered this website if I didn't engage in MLM and I wanted to give members some background on me as an introduction. I have no intention to pursue MLM as a distributor.

My focus now is learning how to self publish a book.
I will ask questions on that in a new post.

Thanks for the information :)
