Ted Nuyten had the honor to interview Ramin Mesgarlou also knows as The Forensic Networker.
Ramin, how did you get involved in the Direct Selling industry. I understand you have hands-on experience as a succesfull leader?
Back in 1990 at the age of twenty, I was in a traditional restaurant business. One afternoon I remember thinking, “If it feels this hard at twenty, it must be much harder at thirty, forty and fifty! I don’t want to do this for the next ten years, let alone the rest of my life."
There is an ancient adage: “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear", and at that exact moment one of my customers walked into my restaurant and handed me a flyer he had just received from a friend. The flyer’s headline read, “How can a man make $73,000 per month selling cookies from his home?” I was inspired. I travelled 900 km to meet the man, and that was it.
My life changed forever, and everything I thought I knew about making money before that meeting went out the window.
Ramin, why did you switch from a successful distributor of over a decade to launching your own business?
I started my MLM career part-time in 1990, and after fourteen months of part-time work, I sold the restaurant business and went full-time. I spent the first fourteen years of my MLM career as a soldier on the field, building four multi-million dollar businesses with four different MLM companies.
Unfortunately, every time I built my empire, something went wrong with the company. They either changed compensation plans, sold the company or closed their doors. You see Ted, what got me into MLM was the mantra, “Work hard for five, and be able to take the next fifty off." I believed that then and I still believe that now, but I didn’t like what I was seeing in MLM.
What didn’t you like Ramin?
After building teams of over 100,000 distributors, creating twelve millionaires and dozens of six- figure income earners, I realized that the industry had TWO major problems that were hampering its work force success, resulting in 98% not becoming successful.
The industry has some serious problems that require addressing, starting with the training, which is why I wrote my book, The Forensic Networker.
Ramin one would think that creating that many millionaires and six figure income earners in your career would be considered a success.
It would be, until you consider the other 99,000 people who did not make it in my teams. You see Ted, I realize that most people do not apply themselves in their direct sales business, hence I wrote the ever-popular chapter “THE EIGHT CATEGORIES OF DISTRIBUTORSHIP” in my book; however, the industry has its own problems that it must address. The two main areas that the industry must address are:
Low profit product lines that would require an army of users to be able to earn a full-time income. As you and I both know, most people will never build a large team. As such in a traditional MLM, they will never reach their financial targets.
Highly restricted distributor compensation plans that look good on a fancy chart but are full of pitfalls and not conducive to distributor success.
