LEGENDS: My 27 Greatest Network Marketing Trainers of all time

Share on social media

Network marketing is a lucrative industry. It has grown exponentially to a billion dollars worth and the role of some key individuals in this process can not be overlooked. Below is a list of some of them…

Kosta Gara

Kosta Gara built a solid network marketing organization of 200,000 distributors internationally in a company called Lexus and soon become an MLM company owner by founding Bhip.

Bhip currently has 1,000,000+ distributors across the world.

Kosta’s current focus is growing Gara Group, the industry’s leading all-in-one solution for direct selling companies to launch and scale their business.

Gara Group owns a multitude of companies, including Dev Pros, and helps network marketing mlm companies with things like: live events, finding Master Distributors, shipping, labeling, inventory tracking, compensation plan developement, back office developement, and more. It’s quite the operation!

The most recent client to Gara Group is iGalen, which is a health based MLM that focuses on supplements designed to help people that are either pre diabetic or diabetic.

Gara Group recently helped iGalen reach their first 7-figure month in revenue which was amazing to help with and be a part of!


Eric Worre

Network Marketing _MLM _leaders

Eric authored the book Go Pro and holds and annual generic network marketing event called Go Pro that does 8 figures in revenue annually.

His training leans more towards offline and social media and focuses on duplication and referral based networking.

Eric’s company also brings in heavy names to help promote the brand and features the likes of Tony Robbins, Brendon Bruchard, and even Pitbull who is attending Go Pro as a keynote speaker for the 2017 conference. For some epic Eric Worre videos be sure to check out  Go Pro by clicking the link!

Matt Morris

Matt Morris is a rockstar and top earner in World Ventures. In fact, Matt has been with them so long he’s virtually the company face for World Ventures.

Matt’s training is probably some of the best out there and he’s one of the few that has stuck with the trade rather than deviate towards consulting.

Most other MLM leaders that train and teach the network marketing population sell their positions, but Matt has stuck true to the trade that’s provided for him for so long. It’s extremely impressive. Most of Matt’s training focuses on the fundamentals of network marketing, with a strong emphasis on closing and recruiting.

Ray Higdon

Ray made his first full-time income in a company called Numis Network which was acquired by World Ventures, after which Ray sold his position and moved into consulting.

Eric Worre refers to him as the triple threat guy, meaning he knows how to recruit and build online and offline. From what I’ve seen of Ray’s training and how he operates I would say he’s mostly a 50/50 guy when it comes to how to build.

His early focus was on blogging. He’s a huge advocate of leaving an evergreen footprint in network marketing for other people to land on. It’s a concept called attraction marketing.

Ray and his wife Jessica do well teaching the fundamentals of network marketing, they also leverage the leadership of others such as Tim Sales, Robert Hollis, Eric Worre, and even Shark Tank billionaires to build their online brand.

Although Ray’s business model is completely internet based, he focuses on teaching both online an offline strategies that work. He owns Higdon Group, which hosts a variety of conferences each year, including Top Earner Academy, Prospecting and Recruiting Summit, among others.

The Higdon Group also earns revenue through a private coaching program they sell to top earners in the network marketing profession, helping those people move into consulting on top of earning income as leaders in their given company.

Tim Sales

I’ve had the chance to really get to know Tim Sales by building a relatively small Ariix business several years ago (800 reps or so).

Tim is absolutely the real deal and although he got into the industry by building NuSkin, he has since rebranded himself and become known as a leader through his incredible training programs, including things like Brilliant Compensation, which he will admit is the most pirated video series in the MLM industry.

Tim Sales is currently a Master Distributor for Ariix, a health based MLM that is owned by Fred Cooper, Mark Wilson, and a few others that moved out of Usana to start the company in July of 2011.

Ariix corporate is based out of Utah and is predominantly Mormon in terms of the executive team and does extremely well incorporating their faith-based philosophies into how the company operates as a whole (i will admit my wife and I are not Mormon, but in full transparency it’s worth pointing out).

Tim Sales and his wife Laura created a program called 3X which they promote to Ariix reps to help them make customer sales. It works extremely well given Tim’s experience in affiliate and internet marketing. They’ve put a lot of effort and money into the development of the program and Tim himself literally transformed his body to prove it works.

Although Tim built his first business using traditional methods he has since been mostly an online builder. Most of his leads come from paid advertising and his massive network both in the USA and outside the country, but nonetheless he is able to train those people to duplicate regardless of the country or preference they have in growing their business.

It’s why he’s one of the most sought after trainers in the MLM profession. If you want more information feel free to click the contact tab below, Tim currently has what’s referred to as a reentry position in our downline and we can place you in his organization if you decide Ariix is a company you’d like to partner with.

Holton Buggs

Holton Buggs has stuck with his MLM company for quite some time and spoken from Eric Worre’s stage at Go Pro. He’s definitely the real deal and made quite a living in the network marketing profession.

One of the most impressive talks I’ve heard him give was on launching new distributors, and using conference calls to really drive depth and taproot new MLM businesses.

Holton has a preference for offline network marketing and traditional methods but is an absolute beast when it comes to networking, recruiting, and duplicating. His current company is Organo Gold and he is one of the top performers if not THE top performer in that company.

Keith Halls

Keith is a regular speaker at ANMP, a live event that occurs once a year in Dallas, Texas. Keith is good friends with Tom Chenault and is a top earner in Youngevity. Keith got his start similar to Tim Sales in NuSkin which is where he first made his wealth.

He has successfully built teams of over 500,000 distributors and is an icon in the industry. Although Keith has a blog and website, he does very little building online and mostly focuses on traditional methods and business overseas to expand his organizations. Keith and Tom Chenault are close friends and work closely with Curtis Broome, the founder of ANMP.

Tom Chenault

Tom Chenault is a top earner in Youngevity and is a regular speaker at ANMP, a live event that occurs once a year in Dallas, Texas.

Tom also got his start in NuSkin, however was not able to reach the top ranks in that company and struggled in his early days. Today, Tom and his wife Denise have built their empire to the top of the Youngevity compensation plan. Tom does have a Weebly blog and there are multiple broken links on the navigation bar which tells me most of his business if not all is built offline.

Richard Bliss Brooke

Having worked with Richard Bliss Brooke and Bliss Business off and on for a year I can say him and his wife Kimmy Brooke are incredible people. In fact, we’re heading down to Vegas a day early this year to spend time with them at a private event they’re holding for their followers the eve before Go Pro starts.

Richard and Kimmy have reached the top of pay plans in multiple companies, but the most recent was Life Shotz, which soon became Life Matters and was acquired by Young Living. Richard and Kimmy retained a position above their organization in Young Living after transitioning the organization over as well and now build in the field while running Bliss Business (a generic network marketing training company) simultaneously.

We’ve had the privilege of helping Bliss Business scale their online reach by consulting for them on topics like: SEO, paid advertising, social media, and more.

Richard and Kimmy respectively have authored books such as: Mach 2 with Your Hair on Fire, The Four  Year Career, and The Four Year Career for Women.


Jordan Adler

Jordan Adler is the author of Beach Money and has built a sizeable organization in his primary business Send Out Cards.

Jordan was in 10 network marketing companies in his first 11 years and failed miserably. At the age of 34 he had less than 200 dollars to his name and over $30000 in credit card debt.

Jordan ultimately became a top earner in his company of 2.5 million distributors and went on to make $20 million in network marketing.

Jordan has built businesses consisting of over 200,000 distributors and nearly 500,000 customers in countries all over the globe. Although Jordan has a nicely designed blog, most of his building is done offline and internationally.

Don Failla

If you’ve never heard of Don Failla, you are way behind the power curve.  This guy has built up a team of more than one million distributors.

His book “The 45 Second Presentation” is a must read for any network marketer.  The two most important concepts I learned from Don are the importance of tap-rooting and building depth.

Mark Yarnell (RIP)

Mark Yarnell is another legend in our industry!  He built a team of more than 300K distributors with Nu Skin Enterprises. The most important lesson I learned from his was the importance of innovation, not duplication.

He teaches that duplication is a lie and that you need to sponsor a large amount of people if you want to be successful.  His book “Your Best Year in Network Marketing” is one of my favorite network marketing books. Mark is now deceased, but his legacy lives on. Of all the people on this list, Mark has been my most important MLM mentor.

Big Al started in network marketing in 1972.

He is the Author of six books on recruiting:

When he is not prowling the podium or locked in his lonely writer’s garret, you’ll probably find him playing 3rd base for a softball team somewhere. He was born in Madison, Wisconsin.

Robert Blackman

I learned a lot from Robert Blackman. He is sometimes referred to as “The Postcard Guy.” The two things I really learned from Robert include (1) the power of direct mail and (2) that the real money is in theleads, training, systems and toolsbusiness, aka the “Picks and Shovels Business.”  I love watching Robert’s videos.

Robert G. Allen

Robert Allen is the author of “Multiple Streams of Income” one of the most important books I’ve ever read.   At one time, he was also a very successful distributor withUSANA, and he is now a top earner in another company.

He taught me the importance of creating multiple streams of income, with my MLM Business being just one of those income streams.


Mike Dillard

Who hasn’t heard of Mike Dillard?  I ordered Magnetic Sponsoring way back in 2009 and that book totally changed my life and business for the better.

Mike taught me the importance of having multiple streams of income, how to use funded proposals and self-liquidating offers and how to make money, even when people don’t join your business opportunity.  He also taught me how to get people to contact me first using attraction marketing.  All of his training courses are top-notch and his affiliate program is awesome.

Dale Calvert

Dale Calvert is another legend in the MLM Industry.  He’s authored countless books and training programs about how to succeed in the industry.  His videos are great, his blog is awesome, and he’s just a very likable guy.

Some of the most important lessons I learned from him include (1) the importance of asking questions to your prospects, (2) how to be a good listener, and (3) how to build your MLM Business locally. He also taught me about the importance of skills and attitude.
