What We Do

We help Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners build an Expert-Level Blog that will not only Increase Lead and Sales Generation but will also Increase their Authority in the marketplace.  We do this by helping them build an Authority-Building Blog, helping them develop a Brand they can be proud of, and delivering the Marketing Training they need.

Why Do We Have What It Takes

We’ve been in and out of Network Marketing and other businesses for over 20 years.  We know what doesn’t work, but more importantly, we know what DOES work.  We’ve participated in over 2,500 hours of online marketing training from some of the world’s top leaders (in just the last 4 years alone), and we share this knowledge with you through our business, our coaching, our courses, and our blog.

Our Story

We have been married for 23 years.  Michelle has been in and out of network marketing for over 20 years but rarely found success.  Mark was a Director of Operations at a Fortune 250 company.   We have 2 young adults: our son Josh who is 21 and our daughter Leah who is 17.

In his 20-year career, Mark worked 12-14 hours a day, 6-7 days a week.  Michelle and the kids rarely saw him.  (People think I’m exaggerating when I tell them how many hours Mark worked.  He took our children to school at 7:30 a.m. and I didn’t see him until 10:00 p.m.—if I was lucky—but most of the time it was after midnight.)

And then in the middle of March of 2014, it happened.  The unthinkable.  The one thing you never think would happen to you.  He went to work on Friday and on Monday he no longer had a job.

Our Family in May 2014

Mark searched for another job, but all he kept hearing was he was “over qualified”.

By the middle of the summer our family had grown stronger because we had Mark home with us–and our daughter finally got to know her father.  Because Mark did not want to go back to that daily grind—and 60-80-hour work weeks—he looked for something online.  Enter network/online marketing.

This time it was different. We quickly found the leaders in the industry and learned from them.

We now help Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners grow their businesses online using simple step-by-step strategies.

We have the ability to give them the tools they need to build a business online.

We give them the training so they can take their businesses to the next level and brand themselves.

We give them the platform that enables them to keep track and keep in contact with their customers and prospects.

Most importantly, we have the community atmosphere that so many network marketers lack online.

Our Mission

In January 2016 there was a forecast for a “massive” snowstorm in Mississippi.  The county was trying to decide whether they were going to close the schools since it would have been a Friday and that meant the students in food insecure households would not eat until Monday.

I was shocked to hear that we had over 700 students in our affluent community that were food insecure (which is a fancy new way of saying starving).

It always bothered me to hear celebrities, musicians, sports stars raise money to feed the poor in other countries.  Surely there were starving kids in the United States.

This tidbit of information spurred me to action and I did some digging around.  Here’s my video rant after I found statistics.

15 million children in the United States, more than the entire population of adults and children in some of the countries we feed.

I took action during the summer of 2016.  We got together a group of 50 people who fed 100 families all summer.  They had more than enough food for the kids to be happy and full.  In the summer of 2017 we had our second annual feeding of over 200 families all summer.

This initiative sparked our mission.

We envision a foundation that helps to feed the food insecure children in the United States.  Not only will it keep them fed but it will also provide new clothes and school supplies for the beginning of each semester of school.

We strive to leave this world and the lives we touch better than we found them, and all this is done with Passion and Integrity.

We urge you to learn the statistics and find a way to help the food insecure children in your area.  Only together can we combat this overwhelming need in our country.
