The recipient of the Mother Teresa Prize for Global Peace and Leadership from the Luminary Leadership Network, John speaks each year to Fortune 500 company executives, presidents of nations, and many of the world’s top business leaders.

John has always had a love for network marketers and admired their desire for growth. Last fall his company partnered with Jamie Minton, cofounder of MULTIPLY, to organize a global Simulcast training for network marketers that reached every state in the U.S. and 79 other countries. John took the stage in Atlanta, GA and was joined by top leaders who delivered high-impact lessons as they helped customize John’s 15 Laws of Growth for the network marketing profession.

Part of this event was to gather content for an exclusive, 12-week online class for network marketing entrepreneurs who want to accelerate their business growth and revenue. Over 60 leaders were selected to contribute and teach how each of the 15 Laws applies to network marketing. Prior to the January 2017 launch of the class, we connected with John to learn more and help him spread the word about “15 Laws of Growth” for the network marketing profession.—J.G.
