The Fearless Networker: While you were studying the field, what did you find to be your favorite business book?
Freddy Elias: Og Mandino's The Greatest Salesman in the World.
The Fearless Networker: Amazing book from Og Mandio! You've personally sponsored 300 individuals into your current organization. What's your strategy to growing one's business?
Freddy Elias: Working with passion and being consistent every day.
The Fearless Networker: I teach the importance of consistency all the time. As I mentioned, you currently have an organization of 7,000. How did you recruit those individuals; what's your method?
Freddy Elias: I'm old school and did it all from my center of influence and meeting new people.
Freddy Elias: For me, building relationships with people is everything. Spending time with them and getting people to believe in themselves.
The Fearless Networker: How has being involved in Network Marketing changed your life?
Freddy Elias: I've become a great leader. And Network Marketing has given me the type of time-freedom with my family I could never have had with any other profession.
Freddy Elias: If you are not designing your life someone else will, so take ownership. The industry of Network Marketing can provide you with more than you could imagine. Freedom, lifestyle, unlimited income; it's so incredible how many lives you can change in so many ways. It's a pay-it-forward business, which is so rewarding!
The Fearless Networker: If asked, what’s one piece of advice you’d give someone currently in Network Marketing or entering it for the very first time?
