Lia Ditton - Women’s World Record Rower

Lia Ditton - Women’s World Record Rower

September 18, 2020
Lia Ditton from www.rowliarow.com rowed for 86 days straight in the Pacific Ocean, from the West Coast of California all the way to Hawaii. She rowed for an average of 24 miles per day through winds and currents. When she sleeps, she has a sea anchor but it doesn’t keep her exactly in the place where she stopped rowing. She has to regain whatever distance she lost when she wakes up. For 86 days she was alone; nobody around, nothing around. Only the vastness of the ocean. She entered the Molokai channel which is so turbulent that I won’t even try braving with my twin-engine powerboat. And, she has to row through that for 37 more miles, without sleep. She capsized twice. Almost fell out of the boat and only barely hung on. She could have drowned. A friend of hers set off a few weeks before she did, and they found her drowned, hanging on to the boat with one arm. Compare what Lia did to what you’re doing. Look at her consistency. Check out the newscast about Lia's journey: https://www.kitv.com/story/42622010/woman-sets-world-record-rowing-solo-from-san-francisco-to-honolulu

Is the FTC the End of MLM?

Is the FTC the End of MLM?

July 30, 2020
How do you stay compliant in the age of the FTC? The FTC is a fraud regulator, but so are consumers. If you chronically commit fraud consumers will eventually shut you down and if they don’t the FTC will. And it's a good thing. They may despise our business model but they more often than not tell the truth about fraud. Network Marketing, MLM, and Direct Sales are historically horrible self-regulators. We have proven over and over that we'll push the envelope until the market or the regulators push back. HOWEVER ... fraud and lying cuts both ways. Here are some truths the FTC is obligated to accept. They are public servants. There are 40 million American citizens that have chosen this profession. That's 40 million of us that have chosen a chance to fail … or maybe succeed. It's not illegal or fraudulent to offer, promote, educate, or sell an income opportunity. Opportunity is just that, the opportunity to succeed or fail. You can't find any implication of a guarantee in that word. Tune in to hear Richard talk about the FTC and new DSA guidance on earnings claims.

In a little over four years, Linda Evenden reached the top position in Juice Plus+ and today has a global business that spans 25 countries with over 20,000 team members.

Kim is the author of "The Monster Under the Bed." In this book Kim shares about what keeps all of us playing small, playing in circles, and chasing our fears instead of our dreams. The profound thing about this book is Kim did not learn to master human psychology in the classroom or from reading books. She learned it from coaching thousands of people … and perhaps her toughest client of all was herself. Her own personal journey of transformation is the bedrock of this book. Her stories will scare you, challenge you, and inspire you. If you take you on and follow her lead, you too can start chasing and catching your dreams. I've had her on my Heroes Podcast before, but this time she's back as a Global influencer!
