I grew up on Long Island NY; I met my wife Cindy in High School, we dated for several years and I went off to college for two years studying Construction Technology while we maintained our relationship. I began working in NYC with a Construction Union. It was during those six months I realized I could not be an employee and needed to be self-employed if I was going to be happy in life. I found a job locally working one season for a Landscape Contractor and learned the trade along with attending Night College in horticulture and Landscape design at the Farmingdale College. Knowing I enjoyed this field I started my own business at the age of 21. One year later I brought our first home and married my High School sweetheart Cindy the following year. I enjoyed self-employment but discovered the business owned me. Then, during one of my unemployed winters, a friend introduced me to MLM. I fell in love with the concept of duplicating and multiplying my efforts through other people. That company was not a fit for us, but it did open my mind for other options when I saw an ad in the Wall stream Journal that lead me to be sponsored and trained by a young couple who were earning a six figure income in another more duplicable Network program. I quickly learned how to develop a team who could help us build a second income stream part time. Cindy and I were fortunate to have been able to achieve enough success to be placed on the speaking circuit at a very young age. During the next two years we grew and learned the basic fundamentals of building a network. Unfortunately that company when out of business due to poor management. Over the years I have made other attempts to finding the right program for us as I knew and believed in this concept and the industry. I knew I could succeed, and I knew people who felt as I did; in 1992 we finally found it. We are now celebrating our 25th year with the company, and we now have a global network in many countries with more than several hundred thousand people in our organizations and over 200 people in the Million Dollar Club and hundreds earning six figures with thousands full time. We have traveled across the USA training other entrepreneurs how to build a solid income part time. We have been and continue to train globally in Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Singapore, and Taiwan. We also have businesses in Spain, Hong Kong, and soon Malaysia; we will plan on trips to those countries. This is a designer lifestyle, I have helped many others reach their goals through it, and will continue to do so. We have truly been blessed and thank God for our success.

How to Tell a Story By Rick Hannon

How to Tell a Story A compelling story can turn a good presentation into an exceptional one. How? A story has the power to color our words with meaning in a way that words or facts alone can’t. Stories stick in our minds, leaving impressions long after we first hear them. They humanize us, helping…
