The 10K Question in Network Marketing

Have you asked yourself the 10K Question about Your MLM?- When we start a job or a salaried position, we know what our hourly wage or our annual salary will be before we start.

Ooooh, this is so mean :)

From one of my great mentors, Tom “Big Al” Schreiter. If you wait for someone to come around and motivate you, what will happen if they don’t show up?
