Ken Klemn, describes in detail that the skills that we learn here at Mentoring For Free and the impact that we have here go a long way to our having massive success.

On this 15th Anniversary of Mentoring For Free I’d like
to reflect on why it began. I believe it was created to
combat two evil cousins of Fear: Greed and Ego. These
two do nothing to create riches, but they destroy
wealth and dash dreams into dust.
Most people think of Network Marketing (or Multi-Level
Marketing) opportunities as “get rich quick” schemes
where hard-working folks can be scammed into losing
Why? Because that’s the way “heavy hitters” presented
them. “You can quit your job and take out a second
mortgage to fill your garage with products. It’s okay
because you’re gonna make a fortune before the first
payment is due, and you’ll pay off the whole debt and
move into a luxury mansion.”
Most mlm companies looked the other way because lots of
money came rolling in, and did nothing to police these
activities until threatened with prosecution.
Many people today think of immigrants as people who
cross borders to pick someone’s crops, work in
someone’s mine or clean other people’s houses and
Many people think of Free Market Capitalism as
something evil. They hear about hedge fund managers
running Ponzi schemes and computer algoes moving
massive funds in and out of positions at the speed of
All these impressions are distortions driven by the
Greed and Ego of people who abuse other folks’ time and
MLM taps directly into the power of word-of-mouth
advertising, and creates a level playing field where
anyone can grow a business to any size without the
initial enormous risk and investment of traditional
businesses or franchises.
Immigrants cross oceans for the prospect of growing
crops on their own farms, discovering their own
precious metal mines, and building their own homes and
The capital markets allow companies to expand their
capabilities to serve more customers while giving every
person opportunities to participate with companies they
believe in as co-owners.
The free market enables individuals to exercise their
unique skills and passions to serve people and
contribute to their economies. These include historic
business legends like Henry Ford who had a passion for
making automobiles affordable to anyone; or Steve Jobs,
whose passion was creating high tech devices anyone
could learn to use. More recently, folks like Ron
Popeil who, like his father Samuel, had a passion for
inventing labor-saving kitchen gadgets more affordable
than fancy French machines; or Mike Lindell, whose
passion is helping people get a good sleep without
spending thousands on high tech beds.
The Big Picture
Aside from the highly specialized knowledge and skill
sets of any niche, the general business-building
principles and skills are the same - no matter whether
it’s a network marketing, landscaping, house framing,
printing, auto sales or any other business.
Napoleon Hill did not pull his success philosophy out
of thin air. It is the result of observing and
interviewing 500 of the most accomplished people of the
early 20th century.
Dale Carnegie did not dream up his principles for
winning friends and influencing people. He studied many
of the best relators and influencers from history.
Likewise, while Mentoring For Free’s training has been
focused mostly on network marketing, the trainers draw
upon their life experiences and observations.
As network marketers can learn from traditional
business, so may entrepreneurs in traditional
businesses learn from network marketing. Whether one’s
passion is running a restaurant, selling insurance, or
designing and building model train layouts, the skills
discussed here may benefit them.
Building self-confidence and belief (Think and Grow
Rich Lessons), understanding people (Personality
Colors), and pull-through marketing (being a problem
solver) are all valid skill sets for any entrepreneur.
Specific knowledge here such as the Five Pillars and
Business Models may be applied to ANY business. Any
entrepreneur could also put our tools, such as the
Mentoring App, to good use.
Your Friend and Servant,
