December 2008

Cover_2008_December Introduction by George Madiou

Welcome to the December 2008 4th annual Women’s issue. Why have we had an issue dedicated to women every year since the magazine’s beginning? That’s easy, besides the fact that women make up 50% of the population; they make up over 85% of the networkers. This is no small fact to ponder. There is no gender gap that excludes the importance of women in network marketing. You will experience the wisdom of some of the greatest minds on this subject in this issue. I don’t often do this but, look back in the past 3 women’s issues (December 2005, 2006 and 2007) you will benefit from all 4 years of our coverage of Women in Network Marketing. I want to thank all of the women that have made network marketing the greatest industry in the history of the world!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
