This issue is dedicated to the largest most powerful majority in the network marketing industry. Every year we take the time to shine a light on this very important and influential group. They are an extremely diverse group but at the same time they take on a different approach than men in the industry. Enjoy how our experts address women in network marketing and more specifically, how they approach a crucial subject, communication.

In this month of Giving, make sure you stop by and find out about an incredible program called Starfish Treasure that I write about and you can get involved in by helping people around the world. Merry Christmas and here’s to a great and exciting 2013!

Aim high!

George Madiou


It’s with a sad and heavy heart on hearing the news of the passing of a great friend and contributor of The Network Marketing Magazine. Zig touched millions of people over his years on this earth. People all over felt close to him because he made you feel he was your good friend. The last time I was with him was in Dallas last year with his wife and daughter, My good friend Julie Ziglar Norman.

On a personal note, I first meet Zig in the mid 90’s. He always had a bible verse to share with me. Last year when I lost my younger brother, he was quick to send me a copy of his book Confessions Of A Grieving Christian with the bible verse John 3:16. I want to thank you Zig, for being instrumental in me growing as a person and I’m proud to have your words of wisdom in this magazine.

Thank you my friend and I’ll see YOU at the top!

GOD bless you,

George Madiou
