January 2007

Cover_2007_January This month we are looking at Baby Boomers! We are starting this issue with an exciting feature interview from a non-baby boomer, Erik Weihenmayer. Erik is an adventurer, top sportsman, author, speaker and the first blind climber to reach the top of the highest mountain on every continent, including Mt. Everest. Erik just released his latest book, The Adversity Advantage. All networkers, especially Baby Boomers have experienced adversity in their life and their networking career. I predict that Erik’s book will become a classic in network marketing, I believe it should be read by every networker, both seasoned veteran and brand new to the industry.

The entire staff would like to extend a very happy, prosperous and healthy New Year this 2007!
