What It Takes To Be a Network Marketing Legend – Anthony Powell

What It Takes To Be a Network Marketing Legend – Anthony Powell

by -

In this week’s podcast episode I chat with the Network Marketing legend “Anthony Powell” who has created a tonne of millionaires and lead 10’s of 1,000’s to a life of freedom through residual income.

Anthony was mentored by one of the self development greats “Jim Rohn” and he shares his advice on how you can become a dynamic leader in the Network Marketing industry.

Here is the episode with Anthony Powell on becoming a Network Marketing Legend

Here are 6 key takeaways from Anthony Powell’s interview:

1. How to become a great leader

You have to be willing to be the one who does it first. You have to establish what your why is and what’s going to make you get out of bed no matter what. In order to become a great leader you need to learn to lead from the front not from the back.

Leading from the back is telling someone to do it then you’ll do it after them. You have to be the one who develops the real skill set not the theory.


2. When you’re just starting out

People think they are going to find a few individuals that are going to make them rich. You have to have a passion for your product that you’re selling.

If you don’t have a passion for your product it won’t align with your values. You also need to understand what your goals are. Understand your 30 day goals, 60 day goals, 90 day goals, 1 year goals, 5 year goals and 10 year goals.

Once you understand your overall goals, you will understand the work that needs to go into making those goals a reality.


3. How to become a dynamic speaker

Do the uncomfortable until it becomes comfortable. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes in the beginning. It’s always hard to tell your story at the beginning, but over time telling your story more and more starts getting easier. Whether you’re speaking to 1 or 1,000,  always be genuine.

Making eye contact is a good way to let them know you are speaking to them.


4. What to do with your money when you make it

First thing is to pay your taxes. Open up a checking and savings account and whenever you get paid put at least 40%-50% of your money into a savings account and put it aside for your taxes. Take 25% of the left 50% to build your business. Then with the last 25% you can use that for more savings or your living.

You’re only number one once. When you’re no longer number one you need to be able to live like you’re still number one.



5. Discipline your disappointments

You have to be excited when things aren’t working or not happening for you. You have to be able to keep that same level even when things are happening.

When something happens, you accept it, write it down, and keep moving forward.

  1. Thanks for sharing this article, Joel! I was not a huge fan of network marketing until I found a team of motivators who were willing to support me beyond business. Your network is truly your net worth! When you learn how to market yourself and market products by using the success tips from others, there is no limit to what you can accomplish in your business. How often do you get a free coach? Network marketing provides you with the tools and resources that can catapult every part of your career.

  2. I have to admit I still have some negative beliefs around network marketing. I admire anyone who has been able to push through what a lot of people say about network marketing and be successful at it. For me, I need to keep working at my beliefs around the industry and reinforce new ideas with references that prove the business can be a good opportunity. Thanks for this podcast.

    • Tim, I felt the same way. I’m starting to realize the true power of network marketing is the incredible network that you build. I am surrounded by a series of motivators who are passionate about life and their business. It’s a great feeling!

  3. What hit me the most is number 4: “what to do with your money when you make it”. Every network marketer must have a plan on what to do when they reach the top. Kudos to an awesome post, BTW! 🙂

  4. Hi Joel,

    This is an awesome article and thank you for sharing it.
    I have been in Network marketing for last two years and doing good. Network marketing is one of the few businesses where you can earn as you learn, right from the start.
    We have to be a leader not a manager in Network marketing business as this is a business of duplication and you have to do the things first then only you can ask your associates to do the same.

    Overall a great Article and I liked and enjoyed it a lot 🙂
