Network Marketing – A Lesson from Winning Coach John Wooden to Make the Rest of Your Year Much Better!
Network Marketing can and probably should be looked at as a game. Many say it’s a numbers game, and that’s pretty true.
But it’s also a way of keeping score on how well you’re obeying the rules and principals of the game itself. I suppose you can count your downline numbers, your commission numbers as indicators of whether or not you’re winning.
Or like we do, you can consider yourself a winner as you collect success stories of people that you’ve mentored in the business. It’s up to you how you keep score, but it’s a lot funnier to enjoy the process when it’s a game and not life or death.
But whether it’s network marketing or something else, if you’re going to look at something as a game, why not take some advice from the most winning coach that ever lived?
Network Marketing Success… (With a Little Help from Coach John Wooden) …
“Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming” ~ Coach John Wooden
That quote goes a long way toward what I was saying above. Ann and I have enjoyed much success from network marketing. We’ve enjoyed financial freedom for many years. We’ve been able to enjoy the fact that when we’re not feeling well, or in pain, we don’t have to slug off to work that day.
We’ve also enjoyed some of the luxuries of life like vacations, new cars, and some of the finest restaurants of the world.
But what makes us feel successful is simply that we’ve done our best to make sure that those that we’ve brought into the business succeed. And we love the fact that so many people have. We’ve truly, as Coach Wooden said, have done our best to become the best that we are capable of. And we’re still striving toward that.
And do you know what the best part of that is?
The best part of that is that when you do that, success just seems to follow you. We’ve focused our attention on helping others succeed, and we’ve witnessed the accumulative affect that, that had on our lives. When you focus on becoming the best that you’re capable of, then success becomes a part of who you are. That’s vital in network marketing.
John Wooden has created what he calls “The Pyramid of Success”. Here’s what that looks like…
You’ll notice that at the bottom of that pyramid lies a profoundly crucial foundation. We know that when you build anything, including success in network marketing, the foundation must be amazingly strong, or nothing can stand for very long.
When you have that as your foundation, then you’re able to put in place all the center blocks that lead to Competitive Greatness. That competitive greatness comes as a byproduct of the foundation. It’s interesting to realize that we’ve built this foundation without really ever knowing that we were building on Mr. Wooden’s principals.
Perhaps though the most important elements for us, in our network marketing business over the years are those that are going up the sides of the pyramid. I’ll let you discover those for yourself…When you have that as your foundation, then you’re able to put in place all the center blocks that lead to Competitive Greatness.

Success in network marketing, like winning at any sport simply comes down to doing the right things over and over again, and doing them with honesty, sincerity, reliability, integrity, and patience.
David L. Feinstein has been published by Pro-Publishing Company of California, for a series on Leadership books.
Exposure to business at an early age along with cultivation of artistic talent in writing is the background that David Feinstein brings to his business associates, prospective candidates and audiences alike. His experience throughout his career in sales and marketing and having owned and operated his own international accounting & financial management services company, is a key success factor in helping develop his international notoriety in the network marketing industry.
David and his wife, Ann have been significantly involved in direct marketing and direct sales for 21 years, serving as a distributor (team member), speaker, trainer, Top Leader, and author in the industry on a worldwide basis. Working together, they coach, mentor and train those seeking empowerment, greater self esteem and branding image, and training people seeking financial success and personal life freedom. David and Ann have grown their business that today spans over 40 countries with over 65,000 team members.

Mr. John Fogg of MLM/Network Marketing, author of “The Greatest Networker in the World” has said the following about myself and wife/partner Ann:
“It's been a looonnngg journey from their "weird" first exposure to network marketing where Ann— a Park Avenue Research Consultant, and David— the owner of an entertainment management firm handling the careers of rock stars such as (the early) Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Michael Bolton, Cyndi Lauper, Phil Collins, and other famous others, found themselves at a meeting full of strange "new agers" from Sunrider— that was 21 years ago— to where they are today: Significant six-figure income earners with Agel Enterprises leading an organization of more than 65,000 people in 40+ countries around the world.
Above all else, Ann & David are focused on mentoring and leadership. Their combined expertise in recruiting, coaching, training and international development has made Ann & David much sought after direct sales business experts.
The Feinstein’s approach marries both classic MLM and the technology advances of the Internet and social media. The first people they have their new people speak with are family and friends, they do meetings, build for and around events and David even unabashedly asks people, "Do you keep your business options open."
