The other day in my inbox, I opened up an email from one of the most respected network marketing professionals of our time, Richard Bliss Brooke.

I’ve only been calling myself a Network Marketing Professional for a short time now. And I’ve heard every excuse in the book about why network marketing (AKA- Multi-Level Marketing) is not good.
