Thanks for visiting my page.

My name is Rick Porter, and my wifes name is Nancy. We have both lived in Richmond, Indiana(USA), all our lives.

I have worked at the same place for 22 years, but I also realized that I needed something solid to fall back on because of the unstable nature of the economy. With retirement ahead and the precarious nature of social security looming, it is a good idea to have a residual income available.

I enjoy bowling, and my wife and I like to watch football and NASCAR together. However, I do spend a lot of time learning about computers and staying up with the changes.

My friend, John Langley, kept telling me about the NPN business opportunity. I signed up even though I was still skeptical.

I have known John for 35 years, and my wife has known his wife, Linda, since junior high school.

My commitment to my downline is to mentor and help them in any way that I can, as John has and is still doing for me.

My immediate goal is to have an investment income and back up for retirement.

Once again, thanks for visiting my page.

Here is my NPN Link

Best regards,

Are you a recruiter? Or are you a sponsor?
There is a big difference.

A recruiter is effective at "signing up" people, and then moving on to "sign up" others. The recruiter seems to be in a frantic search to find superstars among the crowd, and his way to "find" them is to "sign them up" and then watch and wait. The recruiter believes in "love ‘em and leave ‘em. He expects the superstars to eventually rise to the top, and the others to eventually quit.

The sponsor has a different attitude. He believes that any person worth sponsoring is worth developing. The sponsor believes in "marrying" the people he sponsors. The recruiter believes in the "one-night-stand."

Being a sponsor is an ongoing, continuing activity. It is this ongoing activity that creates loyalty to the sponsor, and gives the sponsor serious credibility. The recruiter is a traveling salesman; once he has sold you, he is gone. The sponsor is a helper/teacher who wants you to have the training and tools you need to be successful, and the encouragement to keep plugging. There is also a transferable concept here. Your sponsor wants you to be a sponsor. A sponsor develops other sponsors by deliberate, careful help and encouragement. A recruiter expects a born superstar.

I have six sons.   Each time that I went to the hospital nursery, I was a proud father of a baby boy. As I looked at those babies in that nursery, they each had a card that read either "boy" or "girl." Not one of those cards read "superstar." In all those trips to the nursery, I never found one superstar. Superstars are "made," they are not "born." They are "developed." Making a superstar takes training, encouragement, help, patience, and time. It takes being a sponsor.

What does it take to become a superstar? It take a lot of attitude-type things, such as confidence, commitment, determination, credibility, etc. Where do these "attitude" type things come from? They are learned. They are taught. They are "caught." Here are the stages of the development of a superstar.

1. Learn to be a real sponsor.
2. Develop others who will be real sponsors.
3. Teach them to teach others to be real sponsors.

The secret to MLM success is found in this: the recruiter is not building a "multi-level" organization, it is all one level (and most of them will quit). The sponsor is building a duplicatable system that can run downline through his organization. This builds a powerful downline because it is built deep and strong.

What is the difference between a recruiter and a sponsor? It is the difference between "hype" and "help." The sponsor’s job begins when you enroll; the recruiter's job is done when you enroll. The goal of the recruiter is to sign up people. The goal of the sponsor is to train leaders. Before asking yourself which you want to be, ask yourself which do you want your upline to be. Remember, you are the upline to other people. The key to success in MLM is found in Two rules:

1. Be a sponsor.
2. Keep being a sponsor.

Hello everyone!!!

I am sharing this with you because I would like all of us to become SPONSORS and be responsible and reliable to those we bring into our organizations. Remember, our success is built around those we help become successful. I will never drag any across the finish line that doesn't want to go there, but I will do everything I can to be that perfect sponsor.

I want to thank everyone for all their efforts and for joining our team. I am here to help and I am here to teach and I am here to be your friend.

Warmest regards,

Rick Porter
