Top 15 Network Marketing Trainers

 Discover the Top 15 Network Marketing  Trainers in the world.


Joe Syverson and Coach Matias hanging out in Laguna Beach, CA!

Who are the top 15 network marketing trainers? Well, it really depends on a few things since the industry in recent years has been innovated with a different breed of trainers.

The innovation has come from a group of fearless leaders who have figured out how to influence millions online while still using the principles of building a success organization without chasing friends, family and cold calling leads.

For me personally, I’ve learned from a mixture of trainers both online and offline builders, so I wanted to share with you my top 15 picks.

How Are the Top 15 MLM Trainers Decided?

Before I give you my break-down on how I crafted this list, I want you to know as a friend/distributor  that many ‘trainers’ in this industry have never built a organization, never recruited a single soul, never earned a $1 million in commissions but somehow they are now teaching people “what they would have done 20 years ago to build their business”.

I find this hilarious.

I remember being at a training event listening to different trainers and a gentlemen from the crowd asked the trainer ‘How Big Is Your Organization’, the trainer responded in past tense “I built an organization 15 years ago, now I just train”


So you built an organization 15-years ago and now you train people on how you did it 15-years ago? It makes no sense.

So here’s the criteria I came up with to make it fair:

1. The Trainer must have built a organization retired from it and/or currently still gets paid from one.

2. The Trainer must have a online presence.

3.  The Trainer must offer downloadable PDF’s, Ebook(s), Amazon Book(s), CD’s

5.  The Trainer must be active in the industry either as a speaker, trainer, builder, company owner, (Bill Britt from Amway is on my list and he’s no longer with us, but his training products are worth it!)

Pretty simple and straight forward eh? I didn’t want to complicate it, I hit the main points that your looking for.

So here’s the list:

davewood 1). David Wood , he’s the founder of Empower Network, a personal mentor of mine. Dave has created break-throughs
in this industry that no other ‘trainer’ has
been able to duplicate or even come close to accomplishing. Dave built 95% of his organization using online traffic to recruit over 5,000 people in a single year.

He then leveraged 3rd party tools, systems and culture building techniques to build one of the fastest growing teams the industry. Dave is huge on adopting many of the principles he was taught during his days with Amway and seven other companies.  I encourage you to head over to this page, and make a decision to buy  Dave’s top 3 training courses:

1. Top Producer Formula
2. Team Building Formula
3. Mass Influence Formula

rayhigdon2). Mr. Ray Higdon is definitely one of the most innovative network marketing professionals the industry has experienced. I remember being 22years old in 2010 and Ray entered the scene with My Lead System Pro and a coin company where he had become the #1 earner.

What moved me when I listened to Ray was his story about being in foreclosure, not knowing where to go and how through daily discipline he was able to become #1 in his company.

Ray is the type of leader that tells it how it is, he doesn’t sugar coat any of his trainings, webinars or blog posts. He’s transparent about online and offline, supports both and has specific training products for building your mlm business.

nicksarnicola3). I remember talking to Nick Sarnicola back in 2008, I was a 20 yr.old industry newbie, a friend of mine called me with Nick on the phone ready to close me into Visalus. I was so new I had no clue what was going on, but I remember Nick saying he was making $50,000 a month and had started when he was 21yrs old.

This inspired me deeply, I got involved in that business and due to my lack of discipline  I didn’t last long but I’ve continuously plugged into Nick’s training calls, courses and social media presence where he keeps the dream alive.

I have nothing against him being a distributor and company co-founder, more power to him and what a story he has created. His training has helped  Visalus become one of the world’s most recognized weight loss challenges.

joesyverson_400x4004). Mr. Joe Syverson by far has had the most impact in my direct selling career. I was fortunate to have spent 2-years working under his presence, I remember meeting Joe for the first time at a event in Laguna Beach, CA and from that day on my life continues to grow. Joe has coached over 3,000+ entrepreneurs and has logged thousands of hours, he started like everyone else from the bottom and worked his way up by becoming a phone prospecting machine.

I believe at one point Joe was sponsoring 4-10 reps per day just from the phones using a auto-dialer platform called   I’ve plugged into Joe’s  prospecting , mindset and genetic coding training. I will never be the same because of his words and time invested in me.

jefferycombs5). Want to learn how to sell and become a top producer no matter what your situation is? I remember vividly the first time I purchased one of Jeff’s courses, I was on a conference call and after listening to his story of going from being drug-addict to top producer it home and I began taking massive action.

I believe it was the very first physical course I invested in,  I ended up buying all his trainings and attended his More Heart Then Talent event in Stockton, CA.

Jeffery is the most disciplined mlm trainer, he continues to travel from city to city influencing entrepreneurs on how to become master closers.

Want to hear someone close like a genius? Listen to all his trainings, go to and grab “The Psychology of Asking”.

randygage6).  Nice car huh? Well Mr. Rangy Gage has a collection of them due to his skill of training network marketers and creating millionaires.

I’ve invested a few thousand into Randy’s top notch training, especially his Duplication Nation course that rocked the industry in recent years.

Randy spills the beans on the myths of duplication, he dives deep into human psychology, how other organizations have duplicated into millions (think Churches) and how network marketing is just a BETTER way to build a life.

Randy Gage is a thought-provoking critical thinker who will make you approach your business — and your life — in a whole new way. Randy is the author of nine books translated into 25 languages, including the New York Times bestseller, Risky Is the New Safe. He has spoken to more than 2 million people across more than 50 countries, and is a member of the Speakers Hall of Fame. When he is not prowling the podium or locked in his lonely writer’s garret, you’ll probably find him playing 3rd base for a softball team somewhere. He was born in Madison, Wisconsin.

Bill-Britt-In-Memory11). Founders Crown Ambassador William “Bill” Britt has passed away at the age of 81. Britt, the founder and leader of Britt WorldWide, was one of the most successful yet controversial distributors in Amway’s history. Bill and his wife Peggy joined Amway in 1970, ten years after the company began, and built one of the largest Amway businesses in the world. They reached Diamond level in 1973 and Crown Ambassador in 1996. In 2004 they were recognized as Founders Crown Ambassador, FAA 40, one of only 14 Amway distributorships in the world to have reached that level.

The Britts are downline of Founders Crown Ambassador Dexter Yager, and were an integral part of the success and expansion of the “Yager System” in the 70s and 80s. The Britt’s eventually founded their own business support company, Britt WorldWide, which grew around the world, reaching great success particularly in India, where the Britt’s developed a second large Amway business, reaching Crown in 2009.

Their success was not without controversy however. Britt’s firebrand approach, with no apologies for mixing his strong evangelical Christian faith, political beliefs and business attracting devotion from many but criticism from others. In 2004 the Britt organization was the focus of a Dateline NBC investigation into Quixtar (now Amway North America) and several of his downline distributors were disciplined by Amway as a result.

The Britt’s Amway legacy lives on, with  hundreds of Diamonds from around the world in their downline, including Paul & Leslie Miller and Larry & Pam Winters from the United States, India’s Founders Triple Diamonds,  Harbhajan Singh & Mohinder Braich and Double Diamonds Kanti & Lata Gala, China’s Founders Crown Ambassador’s  Guo-Yuan Du & Ya-Qin Zhu (Matthew Du), England’s Double Diamonds Trevor & Jackie Lowe and Turkey’s Double Diamonds  Hatice Firat & Mehmet Muratoglu andn Merih & Nilufer Bolukbasi.

Our thoughts are with his wife Peggy and the entire Britt Worldwide family.

Dexter_Yager_Amway13). Everyone who meets Dexter and Birdie Yager reports feeling a unique sense of inspiration. Indeed, the effect is not accidental. As Dexter and Birdie will gladly tell you, they are on a crusade to help others earn their freedom. Along the way, the Yagers have personally encouraged thousands, and they’ve reached many more through their speaking engagements, books, and audio and video recordings.

As 55 FAA Point Founders Crown Ambassadors, the Yagers enjoy a position of extreme prestige as being the highest achievers in the North American business region. Both Dexter and Birdie believe firmly that their position carries with it tremendous responsibility. “Our responsibility is to share the dream with others,” Dexter says, “and that’s a responsibility we take very seriously.”

To measure their blessings, Dexter and Birdie compare what they have now to what they had before they began building their business. Their unprecedented achievements stem from humble beginnings: Dexter was earning $95 a week before taxes as a car salesman and a brewery representative, while Birdie worked as a key-punch operator at a local Air Force base. They became Silver Producers sooner than anticipated, and Dexter achieved his first goal: he was able to leave his job.

Holton Buggs14).  I had the honor of meeting Mr. Holton Buggs in 2014 at a private invite only invite. I was flown to Houston and given the opportunity to spend 2 full days training under Holton.

Some look at my success today and feel that I must have been lucky or born into what I have. However, I still clearly remember growing up as a child in the Ponce De Leon projects in Tampa, Florida, watching my mother work multiple jobs to take care of me. Just like many children of single parent households I was dropped off at daycare run by the neighborhood baby sitter.

During those days the only qualifications for someone to have a daycare were a roof, electricity and food. There were no special educational, sanitary, or student to teacher ratio guidelines like today. The lady who kept me had a high school level education and earned less than $1500 a month. She was a good person, but given the fact that I learned more about who died and came back to life on all the popular soap operas, rather than how to count, read, or write, she wasn’t the most ideal person to be watching children at the beginning of their learning years.

But my mother had to do what she had to do. Even though she knew I wasn’t in the best environment, she’d always uplift me by telling me. As a result, instead of taking the sitter’s words at the daycare and growing up to be a big chicken in the coop, I decided to take my mother’s words and create a way to soar like an Eagle.
