More About the Author

Richard Bliss Brooke is a 35-year veteran of the Network Marketing profession, a former member of the Board of Directors of the Direct Selling Association, a senior member of the DSA Ethics Committee, and the owner of two Network Marketing companies.

In 1977, Richard had four years under his belt chopping chickens at Foster Farms, the single largest chicken processing plant in the world. With only 36 years until retirement, at the age of 22, he made the decision to change course; he joined the ranks of the Network Marketing profession. It took him three years to make a living at it. He quit 100 times in his first year and watched thousands around him quit.

Then, it just started to work- three years later, he had 30,000 active partners building the business with him. In the early 1980s, at the age of 28, he was earning $40,000 a month. He made his first million before the age of 30, advancing him to the top sales-leader position in a marketing organization made up of more than 250,000 sales people. At 31, he became that company's Executive Vice President. At the age of 33, he accepted the opportunity to "turn around" a struggling Network Marketing company, which he did. He later became CEO of this company; a role he still holds today.

In March 1992, at age 37, SUCCESS magazine featured Richard and his company on its cover. This was the first time a mainstream business magazine featured Network Marketing in a positive light. At that time, this issue outsold every issue in SUCCESS magazine's almost 100-year history. He has since continued to earn millions and has coached tens of thousands to earn $500 to $50,000 a month, and more.

In 2012, he would have been retiring from Foster Farms, had he stuck it out, and his life would have been different. Instead, he has traveled to every state in the country at least twice, every province and territory of Canada, and over 20 fascinating countries. He has built incredible relationships with thousands of people from all over the world, and had incredible successes, as well as his share of mind-bending failures. His best friends in the world are still his high school buddies, and his favorite place in the world is still home.

Richard is the author of Mach II: The Art of Personal Vision and Self Motivation, and The Four Year Career®. Through his transformational development company, Bliss Business, Richard conducts personal and leadership development workshops and retreats where participants experience the art of listening, vision, self-motivation, leadership, coaching, and action plans. Most importantly, participants learn how to have fun- fully expressed, no-limit fun.

Richard lives in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho and Carmel, California. He loves Harleys, golf, water sports, scuba diving, snowmobiling, flying, and No Limit Texas Hold 'em.

Einstein said, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough." A veteran of network marketing, Richard Brooke shows once again he truly understands the profession from the inside out.

Combining facts and stories, this 65-page read is the perfect tool to leave in the hands of prospects with whom you've bonded over a cup of tea or whose curiosity you've piqued.

For those of us who are visual learners, the The Four-Year Career now has a reading companion complete with pictures, graphs and other helpful visuals. Study this book to become a better presenter of the business, then use it as a prospecting tool whenever you can.

Thank you, Richard, for continuing to elevate the profession and making all of our jobs easier.

This CD does not contain the book. It has a one hour segment entitled Building Wealth Through Royalty Income. This is a rip off.

I was expecting something more general to the industry. Perfect if you're an Amway IBO, but it really should have been part of the description.
