Brig Harts New Book


Arguably the top network marketer in the world, Brig Hart, has just released his first book titled “Why Not You? Why Not Now?”.

An autobiographical look at his life and career in network marketing, the book shows us the rise and fall and rise again of Brig Hart. It also talks a lot about his faith and his life as a born again christian.

For those who  might think this is a book about how to succeed in network marketing, it is not!

Again, it’s a book about Brig’s life leading up to his involvment and success with M0navie. It’s inspirational and you can learn a lot about determination, but it is NOT a “how to” guide for networking.

Brig is known for being a fantastic communicator with a talent for taking complicated subjects and explaining them in a way that is both simple and inspiring. Personally, I must say Brigs “voice” is much better live than in a writing. The book is a bit boring and long-winded compared to hearing Brig speak.

For those of you that have read the book, what do you think of it?

Eric Worre Left Agel


The big news in the network marketing world this week is that Eric Worre has left Agel for SendOutCards.

While Eric has not made a public statement to the reasons behind his move, many people says it’s due to poor retention in Agel.

When Agel launched a few years ago it was with 3 network marketing legends at the helm: Randy Schroeder, Randy Gage and Eric Worre.

Today, Randy Gage is the only one left and some people speculate that Agel might not even survive and Eric just got out of a sinking ship.

Sherman Unkefer Speculations


Recently, both MLMblog and the newspaper Phoenix New Times has published articles where they speculate that top Xango distributor Sherman Unkefer is planning to FLEE to Brazil!

Xango is entering the Brazilian market in the fall of next year which has led the above mentioned media to speculate that Mr. Unkefer will leave the United States permanently as soon as Brazil opens for business.

Apparently Sherman Unkefer was convicted of fraud back in the 1980s, but has served his time and later become the number 1 income earner worldwide with Xango.

That of course, has captured a lot of attention. Also from the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office who is trying to pursue a 22-year-old, $7.5 million restitution case against Mr. Unkefer.

Still, speculations that Sherman Unkefer has convinced Xango corporate to launch the Brazilian market so that he can flee the US just seems ridiculous to us!

Sherman no doubt has the best lawyers money can buy and does not need to flee the country in order to hide from prosecutors.

What do you think?

Isn’t it also time to let past sins remain in the past? The man has served his time and later built himself up from nothing. Does he not deserve to be let alone and enjoy the fruits of his labor?

He’s also helped thousands of people around the world achieve financial success. Where is that mentioned in the Phoenix New Times article?

MLM Legend Godfrey Chan Joins Xango


Last week we reported that Network Superstart had signed up with Xango. This week the saga continues with Mr. Godfrey Chan’s decision to join the Utah-based company.

Mr Chan has built huge downlines in the past and at his most recent company he grew 90% of their entire Hong Kong market.

About his alignment with Xango he says:

“There’s Apple . . . and Steve Jobs. They always have something new to change the world, and I think XANGO is the brand that is going to change the wellness industry.”

KB Gold in Trouble


Yesterday MLMWatchdog.com sent out a report that KB assets of € 815 950 were seized in Germany and that the owner Mike Koschin has used investors’s funds for other purchases than gold.

Here is the short news report from MLM Watchdog:

“The investigations of the Munich public prosecutor and the decision of the Munich District Court  in relation to Mike Koschin as a suspect are now completed. According to the decision, assets seized in Frankfurt € 815 950 were seized because of suspicions that it is the cash funds belonging to investors. Further, the judge concludes that much of the money collected by the KB Edelmetall GmbH was investor’s money. It was not spent on the purchase of gold, but was spent abroad, where the accused (Mike Koschin) and his unknown accomplice, spent the sums of money. This behavior is punishable as fraud in a so far unspecified number of cases to be designated pursuant to § § 263 I, III, No. 1.2, 25 II StGB”

There’s been a lot of noise around KB Gold lately and industry experts such as Michael Sander of Obtainer Magazine has been very sceptical about the whole operations.

Now it looks like the warnings and recommendations to stay away was good advice!

MyShoppingGenie is a new company expanding rapidly around the world. That is, the company itself if not entirely new, but in the last 6 months a lot of established networkers have joined and created waves of growth in many countries.
