Noah St John is a well known mentor and success coach who has authored several books. Personally, I feel this book, The Secret Code of Success is his best.

Noah delves into the fact that so many people are spending outrageous amounts of money trying to find the perfect secret to wealth when the secret is staring at them in the mirror.

Step by step, Noah explains how you can use simple methods to

  • Experience feelings of happiness and love.
  • Eliminate fear and the ways we self sabotage.
  • Improve relationships both small and big.
  • Make more money.
  • Remove stress.
  • Improve productivity.

Best MLM Books #9: The Greatest Networker In The World by John Milton Fogg

“Have a goal bigger than you are.” John Milton Fogg

John Milton Fogg is a longtime entrepreneur who loves network marketing. The book, The Greatest Networker In The World that John authored has sold well over 1 million copies and has helped many network marketers grow their business.

In this piece of fiction with a parable undertone, John tells of a network marketer who was near quitting. He then met the greatest networker who explains to the young man the secrets of success in multilevel marketing.

Much of the key was unlearning the stuff he had been taught from other people. Instead to master the art of network marketing by using the talents and abilities already within us since birth.

John also explains the process of training our downline with easy duplication techniques through the words of the greatest networker.

The Greatest Networker in the World was published in 1997 and has 160 pages.

Raising a Giant was published back in 1998, but Bob has added information and new editions are available.

This book is fantastic as we can see through the lens of Bob as he climbed through the ranks in his MLM company and attained Triple Diamond in a short 4 year period. Many Amway business owners take 20 years before they climb to that level.

Bob tells his tips and tricks and explains how you have the ability of now using the internet that he didn't have. Who better to learn from than a huge MLM success? Bob Crisp is that and more!

There are 220 pages of great information!

Mary Kay Ash built an enterprise starting with just $5,000 and being a single mother of 3 kids. She blew it up and showed us how to be extremely rich, but still be a great person.

Dexter and Birdie Yager built a huge Amway business and Dexter shares his secrets in this book, Don't Let Anybody Steal Your Dream.

Much of Dexter's book explains how our words and thoughts can determine success or failure. And as the title leads to, how we handle the comments of people around us.

We must always remember that it is our dream and not their dream.

Published in 1978, it is a short book at around 100 pages but full of great information.

Best MLM Books #2: Go Pro: 7 Steps to Becoming a Network Marketing Professional by Eric Worre

“Remember, our goal is education and understanding. It’s not to win an argument. Our job is to help blind people see. When someone brings up a negative question or if they offer you an objection, all they are really doing is helping you to identify one of their blind spots.” Eric Worre

Many years ago, Eric Worre was at a convention. He had been “dabbling” in network marketing like many people do and see little results. Suddenly, Eric decide he was going to Go Pro. He did and amazing results followed.

Eric has proven he is a mighty force in network marketing and as an entrepreneur, he offers to teach other entrepreneurs how to have similar success. In Go Pro, Eric teaches

  • How to properly approach prospects
  • Presenting your products
  • Following up
  • Helping your prospects become customers or distributors
  • Team leadership
  • Event promotion
  • and a lot more.

Eric's book was neck and neck for #1. I pretty much flipped a coin, so you may as well say this is a tie for the top MLM book to help you grow your network marketing business.
