From university drop-out to building a Direct Selling team with over $150 million a year in sales.
Wes was already £10,000 in student debt, living with his mother and without a car. He went to a good school and all of his friends were doing much better than him, on their way to completing top medical, legal or economic degrees, and he was pretty directionless. So he decided to get involved in Direct Selling to work alongside his studies, in the hope of earning some extra money in the short term, and building a residual income in the long term.
After a few short months, Wes was hooked on Direct Selling and decided to drop out of university... before he was kicked out! Although he kept a student mentality (late nights, trash TV and parties) he gave his sole focus to his Direct Selling company and started to make a success of it.
Now in his forties, Wes Linden's organization does over $400 million in sales per year. He is still actively involved in his Direct Selling company, hosting many of their major conventions and training videos, while still enjoying building his business as close to the grass roots as possible.
Even though he's achieved the top level in his company and the pinnacle of success, he's determined not to be detached or removed from the lifeblood of any business - the new joiners. He’s now written a number of books and audiobooks, one of which - ‘79 Network Marketing Tips for Fast Track Success,' - topped the Amazon best-selling lists for 60 consecutive months (five years!)
Wes has only ever been involved with ONE Direct Selling company and he's been with that one company for over twenty years now. He is a big advocate of being loyal and focussing on the long term, providing your business has the strength to support that.
Wes has a belief and passion that everyone needs to consider a 'Plan B' and to set themselves up with a home-based business. At the very least to to have a side business alongside their main job or business to make the difference between living and existing long before they start being overwhelmed with the big numbers. As someone from the generation who was brought up being taught about 'jobs for life' but having lived through the recent recession to realize that the world has changed. There's a new set of rules now.
Direct Selling has allowed Wes to build a property portfolio and entirely opt-out of the rat race and the economic rollercoaster. He prides himself on championing the underdog, and being non-materialistic and is much more comfortable talking about experiences, adventures and holidays, rather than the size of his check, watch, car or house.
As an avid soccer fan, Direct Selling has allowed him to turn a goal into a reality as he is a referee who officiated in the top professional levels of English football in the Championship. He loves spending time with his friends and family, and is a proud uncle to Noah, and father to two rescue dogs - Coby (a Dachshund!) and Bree (a beagle).
Wes is very excited and honored to share the stage with so many legends and great names; and looks forward to sharing his success tips with everyone who joins us at the Mastermind Event.
Wes is another Mastermind faculty member you simply won't find on the usual speaking circuit. Normally to learn his insights, you'd have to be a member of his company. Like the other presenters, he's agreed to participate in this generic event, working to elevate the profession for us all.
Frankly, most of what Wes will be teaching at the Mastermind Event he'll be doing so for the very first time outside of his own company events. This may be your only chance to get this information.
