As of 2012, this Network Marketing Veteran with the Midas Touch and an Eye for Making Millions is all about making BodHD his Biggest Success Story Yet! And, he plans on building a Team to enjoy it with him. His first full month in business, Bill broke records advancing quickly to 4 Star Senior Director.

Bill Drevyanko has spent the better part of his life in Network Marketing, 35 years. He is a professional public speaker and published author for 15 years, and works with corporations and individuals throughout the United States and abroad.
Bill is living in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, in a relation with Trina Jade Huynh. He has four wonderful children, four grandchildren, a four legged child named Tank, his Wolf dog and three cats.
Bill has owned a real estate investment company, an automotive dealership and was in the health club business for over 25 years. He was named the Most Valuable Distributor in the World after only two years with his previous company. This is how I’d like it to read.
By 2011, just 2 years into that opportunity, Bill was one of the top 100 income earners in the world along with being one of the top trainers and coaches, too. Bill has now accepted a founding distributor position with another company that is more in line with his passion of health & wellness. Ted Nuyten had the honor to interview Bill.
Bill, what would be your advice to a newbie in the Direct Selling Industry?
Do your home work on any company you are considering joining. Research the founders, corporate management staff and make sure they are experienced in the direct sales / network marketing industry. Research the field leadership and make sure the the top distributors or master distributors have success in the industry as a top producer AND as a person who can coach, mentor and traing people.
Make sure the company is well financed and can handle rapid growth and find out what the short and long term goals of the company is. On the other side of things, make sure you like the product and or service that the company is marketing. Make sure the products align with your passions and values. If you can’t be a product of the product and have 100% faith in the products then don’t join. It’s not all about the money.
Make sure the compensation plan is workable and stable for long term growth and the ability to build a true lasting residual income. But, at the same time, there should be that ability to make some quick money up front with fast start bonuses based on your direct efforts. Also look for rank advancement bonuses and revenue profit sharing or bonus pools based on rank advancement, time and grade, direct efforts and the over all business efforts of your team.
Look to see that a company has good systems and training in place that everyone can plug in to and learn. Good mentorship from upline is always a good thing but, a good company will have systems in place where anyone can learn from plugging in to the systems and tools and applying what they learn even if they don’t have good upline support.
And, finally a person should plan on staying the course. That means, plan on staying with the company and working the program for several years. DO NOT hop from opportunity to opportunity. DO NOT allow yourself to be lured away to another company just because the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence. In my experience, the grass on the other side looks so good because it’s Astro Turf (fake) and not real. You have to stick with your chosen company and program for a minimum of 1 to 2 years and give it a chance. With that being said, the only reason you should leave a company is if the company is failing it’s distributors.
If a company is out of ethics or field leadership is out of ethics and the company won’t act to correct things. In my opinion, companies and leadership should be distributor focused. If a company and it’s leadership are truly focused on the well being and advancement of their distributors, then that company will do well. If not, then the company WILL ultimately fail. A company should allow distributors to WORK the business and earn the rewards that this great industry offers, without having to fight politics or deal with ever changing rules or policies. I like transparency and honesty from a company and it’s field leadership.
