In Appreciation of You

As we bring 2010 to a close, let me offer thanks to all of you that participate here each week.  The vision of this blog was to create a safe space where people from all companies could hang out, learn, and Mastermind.  

I hoped for a place where the cool kids would hang out, celebrate the profession, and work together to elevate it around the world.  That has certainly happened.  Thanks to all of you.

It’s the only MLM blog I know that hasn’t turned into a pitch fest.  People here really do respect the profession, lend support to others, and embrace the chance to grow and learn.

Thanks also for your tremendous support of the Making the First Circle Work book. The first printing sold out in less than two weeks and we’ve already sold rights in nine other languages.  I’m grateful for so many of you giving the books to your team for the holidays or New Year.  You’ll be happy to know the new printing has arrived and all back orders should be shipping this week and next.

So I just wanted to take a minute and thank you all.  It’s been a great year and I look forward to an amazing 2011 with you.

  1. Thanks Randy for being a leader in elevating our profession! I’m sure there are hundreds of thousands of people who benefit from your leadership (directly or indirectly)! If anything, we Thank You!

    Have a great Christmas and New Year’s!!!


  2. “It’s the only MLM blog I know that hasn’t turned into a pitch fest.”
    YES Randy, muchas gracias!

    You are a ‘Professional Money Maker’ who walks your talk, and keeps it real!

    All the very best for everyone,

  3. Even though I seldom contribute, I learn so much following your posts. Being new to MLM, I am like a sponge, soaking up all the information I can find – as long as it is helpful and worthwhile – and I find your comments to be that as well as encouraging and motivating. I’m really happy one of my upline included one of your blogs in a message. Thank you for giving me tools for developing my skills and for my self-development. Looking forward to the New Year’s instructions. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  4. Randy-

    Thank you so much for all that you do every day. Since meeting you in Houston I have learned so much from you. At dinner the first night you taught me that we work in the “Profession” of Network Marketing not the “industry”. That simple change in one word did a lot to shift the way that I think about and approach my business. First Circle, Duplication Nation and this blog have become my University as I learn and grow in this profession.

  5. Hi Randy,

    I don’t often make a remark but I am glad to be able to read this each day. You are the consummate leader constantly encouraging us with assignment-based practical ways to improve our skills and keep us honest with the things it takes to be successful.
    You walk the walk and talk the talk!
    Thanks again and have a wonderful 2011!

  6. Thank you too, our living legend. I discovered this blog not too long ago, but it’s been so helpful. I can’t wait to glean a lot of inspiration, knowledge and motivation from here next year. Godspeed and God bless you

  7. Dear Randy,

    ever since I accidentally picked up your book ,my life was given new impetus and the desparation began to change in the hope.

    I can only say one, thank you, thank you, thank you.

    God bless you.


  8. Dear RG,
    Since I started to work in your team and read this blog, my life is changed forever. I have totally different point of view about my life, worlds events and people around me. Its like “sleeping princess” awakening. Thank you for your support and unselfish work. Have a nice Christmas and anything you want in next 2011 year!

  9. Thanks, Randy, for this great blog!

    As you said, no pitching here and so it is the only MLM blog that I am still subscribed to and I am reading every post as soon as possible when it comes in. (Iphone rocks! :-))

    Happy holidays!

  10. hey Randy,

    thank you so much for your rants, tips, advice and kicks to the back side! I needed (and still do) a lot of them to build my belief in myself and this profession cause deep down I always knew it works and it’s my ticket out but I always hesitated to take off as I didn’t know how! your books, this blog and your teachings on prosperity helped to open my eyes and build the confidence to make a plan how to achieve wealth and stick to it, no matter how long it will take! so I am nearly done reading your Money Making Mashine and then I will be making a system of duplication and trying it out in 2011! it’s gotta work!

    thanks bunches, keep up the inspirational work and may you never dry out of advice! and have a joyous Holiday season!

    Everything we leave to the Greater power but for mew;THANK YOU it all new me as you served me as surrogate sponsor and change my whole network marketing profession perception.You are a champion.


  12. Randy:

    Thanks for all the insight on your professionalism on building a Network Marketing group.
    Even though I am the “enemy from within”,”pinko”,”commie”,”socialist” according to the right wing nuts and certaintly I am not a Libertarian, I enjoyed your insights in prosperity and NM.

  13. Seasons Greetings Randy – and to all like-minded folks.

    2011 marks my 13th year in MLM – all with the same excellent company.

    I only joined for the personal use and benefits of the products.

    However, now I’ve discovered your enlightening teachings, tips and professional approach to MLM, I’m already seeing increasing financial rewards every month!

    Best wishes and many thanks

  14. Truely! Some we haven’t done so good as we expected this year……., something won’t move in our way. But we learned a lot from this Blog that helped to adjust some approaches to the business, to me this is so important.
    Special thanks to Randy Gage for creating this, without forgetting my fellow MLM’ers for sharing your experience.
    May God bless you all and get ready for the New Year.

    Thanks RG

  15. Randy,

    I’ve followed you on and off since the days of how to make $100k in network marketing. It was great talking with you on the phone earlier this year.

    It’s refreshing to come to your blog & read the simple but powerful insights. I save the emails that notify me of the blog posts & occassionally use them as inspiration for some of my own posts.

    Most of the posts are great reminders of things I’ve learned & applied thru my 17 years in the profession.

    This is the greatest profession I could have chosen & it has created more freedom for my wife & I than I would have gotten in corporate America.

    I plan to do a lot more with my blog this year & expect it to be a place where the professionals can hang out & I can give back.

    Enjoy the the time with your family & friends this weekend & Happy New Year.

  16. -RG,

    Thank you for your servant leadership.

    Thank all of you that contribute to this blog. You give me a place where I can send people to to see that Network Marketing is a profession to be proud of.

    Merry Christmas!

  26. Thank you Randy for your teachings which I have been following for the past few months. You have really been a source of strength and your words of encouragement have made me very strong even in the face of so much despair.

    I know that if not for your blog, maybe I would have quit network marketing but because you have taught us so much, I believe I will make an impact in this profession.

  28. I just want to mention I am just beginner to blogs and actually liked your blog site. Probably I’m going to bookmark your blog post . You absolutely come with fabulous posts. With thanks for sharing with us your website.

  29. Frankly after many days becoming stressed. Finally I consider happy just mainly because I got rid of constant waiting. I were busy awaiting my boy friend to arrive here in Miami. This has been a busy week and that is why I am commenting late here. I want to write a blog about my dating experience soon.

  30. I like this website very much, Its a very nice billet to read and receive information. “Confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can have. It’s much sexier than any body part.” by Aimee Mullins.

  31. I visited a lot of website but I think this one holds something extra in it. “All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality.” by Martin Luther King, Jr..

  32. Greetings from Florida! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your blogon my iphone during my lunch break. I love the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how quick your blog In Appreciation of You | MLM Success Blog loaded on my cell phone … I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, good blog!

  33. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
