Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

To listen to its proponents, network (or multilevel) marketing is the greatest thing since sliced bread: top performers earn $1 million a month, reside in alluring places like Aspen and Kauai, and still find quality time to happily raise children and lovingly cement spousal relationships. Contending that those who fail to make it that far are ill prepared for the initial challenges they face, Mark Yarnell and Rene Reid Yarnell--married network marketers who are among the industry's leaders, as well as members of a University of Illinois faculty that teaches the only college-certified course on the subject in the U.S.--have written Your First Year in Network Marketing: Overcome Your Fears, Experience Success, and Achieve Your Dreams! to convey both advice and inspiration to newcomers. Peppered with personal anecdotes that bring their recommendations to life, the two offer logical strategies for overcoming rookie obstacles and kick starting a career. Individual chapters explore issues such as battling rejection, avoiding depression, handling prospects, supervising recruits, and managing time. Each concludes with a comprehensive summary, but save it for later reference and don't skip the preceding narrative, or you risk missing the book's considerable motivational component. --Howard Rothman

Format: Paperback
Let me first say that my opinion of this book has changed dramatically as my career in MLM has progressed.

When the book was first released and I read it cover to cover, I thought it was going to be a panacea for me. It was clearly written, described lots of situations that I'd already encountered and just plain made sense.

As I've progressed to a six-figure home-based income, it became increasingly clear that the main problem with this book is that much of it still boils down to the same basic advice that most MLM gurus have you doing: making lists of friends and family, doing milk-and-cookie parties in your home, doing three-way calls.

And, if you've been in MLM for more than 20 minutes, you probably know that most of those things probably don't create the results you're looking for.

Heck, it's not that hard to figure out: go find any top-earner in the business and you'll probably not see his friends and family anywhere in his business. And yet they always tell you to enroll your friends and family.

I gave the book THREE stars because I DO believe that it forwards alot of the same impractical thinking that is presented in most other MLM "how to" books.

Where this book DOES shine is in teaching you the proper mindset and posture of a professional networker which is as important as any of the nuts-and-bolts.

So, if you haven't got this book, I do suggest you get a copy. But, you can probably ignore the areas about warm marketing, cold-contacting strangers and doing drawing circles on whiteboards in your living room for prospects....it's not going to be the solution you think it is.

If you are just getting started in Network Marketing, you need this book. I recommend this to everyone in my downline.I also recommend "Self Wealth" by Mark, "Self Matters" and "Life Strategies" by Phillip McGraw and "Turner, Turner, Turner: The King of Network Marketing" by Glenn W. Turner.

I have been in network marketing for over ten years, failing miserably. I tried this company and that company. Wasn't going anywhere untill I bought this book and used it.

This book should be called "How To Become Brilliant on the basics" and subtitled "How To Unleash Your Potential in MLM." It sure did for me.

Before reading "Your First Year in Network Marketing", I thought I would be lucky to get 100 people on my list. After reading what Mark said, I easily came up with a list of over 2,000 and the bst part is that those 2,000 know 2,000 who know 2,000 who know 2,000 and so on. I think it is true that if you know three people, you know everybodyelse in the world.

The affirmations were great and got me thinking bigger. The scripts were a great start, although I have midified them since then.

Overall a great book by Mark. I wonder how many other failed network marketers would do well if only they read (and applied) this wisdom?

This book is great for making the most in your network marketing business. There is no doubt that home based businesses as a whole are exploding with network marketing heading that explosion.

In this book, Mark Yarnell shows you how to be all that you can be in MLM/Network Marketing. Mark shows you the ropes. What to avoid as well as what to do.

This book is not just for newbies, it is also excellent as a refresher for experienced networkers or even those who have been in the business and don't quite get it yet.

Mark has helped a lot of people and he can help you too.

Doug Weed was right - this is the bible of network marketing for new networkers. It has really been a helpful support to me and so many others I know. I have read and reread it several times and feel it essential for first year networkers.
But if you like this book, you'll love Rene's newest book for your prospects. It is called The New Entrepreneurs: Making a Living - Making a Life in Network Marketing. It does all the work for you to help anyone looking at network marketing overcome their resistance and seriously consider the industry without prejudice. Check it out. It's a book you'll find hard not to read in one sitting. And, although it is a business book, the stories are from the heart. I highly recommend The New Entrepreneurs as a means of building your network marketing business and Your First Year in Network Marketing once you've joined as a training tool. This will spare you the grief by teaching you what to do and, as important, what not to do.
