“People’s ability to understand the factors that affect their behavior is surprisingly poor.” Robert Cialdini
No Excuses Summit III
No Excuses Summit III is coming up in Vegas on the 20th of April. It’s the annual event that started in 2009 and has become one of the best industry events for network marketing on the planet. It’s where I met my mentor Ferny Ceballos and it’s where I absolutely LOVE to be every year. (you can read more about our meeting here)
I’ve been to every No Excuses Summit III thus far and have met some major talent and incredibly talented individuals. it’s where I was first turned on to the 6 Principles of Persuasion based on Robert Cialdini’s book, Influence. In fact, it’s where Ferny and I first met and he ended up writing a blog post about me to his list. (read more here)
No Excuses Summit shows you the 6 Principles of Success
The 6 principles of success are ingrained in every successful network marketing professionals site, their business acumen and their product launch and sale. It’s the most important set of principles in our profession and they are the most overlooked by new network marketers. What are the 6 principles you ask?
- Commitment & Consistency
- Like (of know, like and trust)
- Social Proof
Instead of building a foundation we go after all of the shiny objects creating even more overwhelm and frustrations for ourselves. I know, because I’ve done it.
The fundamental principles are overlooked by most and when brought to the attention of new network marketing professionals they would rather go for the ‘bling’ instead of the foundation. I know, I have done just that. The overwhelm and the nagging in your stomach that you just spent a lot of money on advertising an affiliate link that didn’t net you what you wanted is commonplace in this industry. It’s called not setting up a foundation on which to build and making your product the point of reference when it’s your presence you want to focus on.
We get into this business because we see the instantaneous gratification of the $17k checks and the accolades of our peers. What we miss entirely is the setup of a foundation on which wecan build. The No Excuses Summit III gives you that foundation.
As network marketers, we pride ourselves on being entrepreneurs.
Yet what’s the first thing we do when we venture into this vast land of MLM, direct sales, and product launches?
We go find a company to represent instead of representing ourselves. We look to the company to give us our identity and all of a sudden, we’re the product, not the person. It’s no wonder nobody likes us. We assume a new identity – that of a product, not of an entrepreneur.
There’s nothing entrepreneurial in representing a company. There is IF you are branding yourself and becoming a leader within the community. I learned this early on at the first No Excuses Summit, but sometimes it takes a long time to implement even the easiest of tasks.
The 6 principles of success are guidelines for all network marketing professionals who are seriously looking to create a business for themselves. 97% of them will fail. 3% will do ok, of that 3%, 1% will make it big. So what does it take to get tot that one percentile? What does it take to be that leader?
As one of my mentors has said, “Ya gotta do Epic Shit”.

At the No Excuses Summit III in less than a week, I will be amongst these 7 and 8 figure networkers and I plan on taking a very good look at their stature, their poise, their products and instead of going thinking about what I can get out of it…I’m going to start this Summit by what I can GIVE to it! I’m getting some epic shit done myself right now.
My product is launched and the Team of Entrepreneurs who are SERIOUSLY making strides in this industry are a part of my product launch and they LOVE it… check it out HERE
My plan at this No Excuses SummitIII is to influence, coach, and help many more entrepreneurs understand how their online presence can be profitable when they use these principles.
