Like probably most Americans I have gotten excited and tried MLM programs before. Actually, I got excited and worked rather hard on 5 different ones by the time I was 33. I was usually able to quickly get 10 to 20 people to join and buy products. But like almost everyone else, within several months I would realize that I had been spending a lot of time promoting the product and their MLM system but I was hardly getting paid anything. And when I calculated how much I was actually getting paid for my time it was much less than even minimal wage. The bottom line is that the vast majority of people who sign up for any of the many MLM programs available, will find that they make less than $100 a month and are getting paid far less than even minimum wage for their time. So almost everyone soon stops pushing the MLM's product and system and most feel like they've spent a lot of time (and money) and have gotten little for it. And of course, there's also often the problem of people buying a lot of product that they don't actually even use. The main pitfalls with basically every MLM program is, first- everyone comes into an MLM program believing they have a good chance to make a lot of money but they don't- AND they usually spend a lot of time and get basically nothing in return. 2nd- most people probably wouldn't buy the product (or at least continue using it), if they didn't believe they would make a lot of money. This is not because the product is necessarily bad (because there are a lot of good products sold through MLM), but the prices are usually much higher than similar type products sold in stores. And 3rd- many buy more product than they actually use and even buy and give away product to meet various qualifications. What if there was an MLM system that removed all of these 3 problems? Well, about 25 years ago, I had been thinking about all of these inherent problems with MLM companies but also realizing what a motivating effect the MLM system always had on people to get them to promote the product even to the point of being overpowering when talking with their friends and new people. I knew that MLM was a very powerful motivator but that it caused a lot of pain for so many people through the loss of their time, money and even friendships. As I was pondering all of this I tried to think of a way to harness the motivational power of MLM in a beneficial way that would really help people, and in a way that no one would come out losing. Suddenly about 10 pm on a Sunday evening I had an idea strike me that excited me more than any thing I could imagine. It was a revolutionary new way of using MLM for good. It kept me awake for the next 36 hours. I thought of all the possibilities that could be done with this new way of using the MLM system. Within a few months I had designed a totally unique MLM system for an English school (but I knew the same system could be used for motivation in any area of self-improvement which I did later in America). Anyway, I set everything up and soon test piloted the system with 3 classes of Englsh students (aprox. 20 per class). Each person paid aprox. $1,000 for a 1 year English course. The results were absolutely amazing! As far as I know, I had the highest rate of attendance by far, for an adult English course than anyone had ever had in Japan and also the largest average number of hours studied per week. I had over a 90% success rate of students attending over 75% of their weekly classes and studying at least 4 hours a week. I even had people cancel activities and even shorten ski trips to make sure they made it to class. After that I also test piloted the same motivational system in America with 10 people for a 1 year self-improvement course for $500. How was such motivation created in these students? It was simply by using the power of MLM (which really is the power of believing you can make a lot of money selling a product with MLM) to motivate people to improve themselves. Basically, my idea was/is to REQUIRE a person to improve themselves in order to get paid (and also instill the belief in them that by improving themselves they have a very good chance of making a lot of money). So now, instead of a person trying to sell a lot of product to make money they are spending their effort improving themselves to make a lot of money. In fact, they will only be paid by improving themselves and they will normally only get others excited to join this system by again, improving themselves and showing that improvement to them. The bottom line here is that money motivates. So use money to motivate/pay people to improve themselves. Now, how many times have you set New Years resolutions only to stop them within just weeks or less. Why did you stop? Because you lost motivation. What if someone would have been paying you to do those goals... What if someone offered to give you $1,000 a month to go to the gym 3 times a week, or $100 for every pound you lost. What if your actual job was to improve yourself. What if, for example, someone offered to pay you $2,000 a month to work 20 hours a week on improving yourself (working out at the gym, eating right, reading books, studying for qualifications, making new friends, learning a new language etc. etc.). What if you believed you would make even more than that by improving yourself. What if you knew that YOU were the project, and that everything you did to improve yourself would bring you in money every month and continue increasing. How would you like having a full time job where your work was just improving yourself!?

Edward I have to share this with you. Last night I spoke with Jayla. I have never seen her so happy and positive and talkative in my life.i asked her about her goals. She was so happy and said "it feels so good to be accomplishing things. I'm happier and it's making such a difference in my life already. " it was as if she were a completely different person. What a beautiful thing to watch her grow. I thought you may want to hear some feed back about how your program is helping people. I know I'm loving it! Love ya! Have a glorious day! -Sherri, St. George, Utah
"I just wanted to say that I joined You are the Project because the person who introduced me was making some real and even surprising positive changes (and although I was very skeptical at first, I'm now really glad she told me). After joining about six weeks ago, I have felt very supported and been very motivated and by what Edward and Shenteria are doing which has resulted in my consistent actions that are resulting in continual personal improvement, including losing about 10 pounds (and my happiness level has increased too)." -Joyful, Las Vegas, Nevada NOTE: Joyful has now lost over 50 pounds and other great accomplishments during her first 12 months.
