Pigs Don’t Know Pigs Stink

Share The Inspiration By Hitting The ‘Tweet‘ Button =>

Today’s post is a little different.  This is a tribute to the innovators of our industry and the creators of the original MLM systems that almost every successful MLM organization in the world has been based off of.  They have the largest, most stable organizations in the history of our industry, and are more than three times the size of the next closest MLM giant.

That’s right my friends, business history was changed and inspired by none other than Amway.

(No, I’m not in Amway)…

but I think that they’re pretty cool.

If you’re in the MLM industry and you don’t appreciate what Amway has done for our industry and Free Enterprise, it’s time to get educated and inspired by the most powerful ‘Dream Builders‘ in history.

When I was in my early 20′s, I got a hold of a tape series from the early 80′s called ‘Pigs Don’t Know Pigs Stink‘ that was done by an Amway distributor named Dave Severn.  Ever since then, this has been my favorite audio I’ve ever listened to, and I’ve probably listened to it 200 times.  When I built my first successful organization offline, I used to listen to this tape driving to every meeting I did for almost 2 years, just to get pumped.

I just popped it in the other day again, and decided it was time for the world to hear.  This is going to probably be the only place you’ll ever find this, because I had to transfer it from a ratted out 1980′s audio tape to MP3… It’s about 3-4 hours, but you’ll be inspired to an entirely new level if you take the time to listen, because what Amway has done better than any company in the world has been to ‘Build the Dream’…

Listen In By Hitting The ‘Play’ Button Now.  Enjoy:

I wanted to just take a minute to thank Dave Severn for producing one of the most inspirational audios that I’ve ever heard in my life. There were many times when the only thing that kept me inspired was listening to an old ratted out Amway tape on the way to someones home, and that’s what our industry is all about.

Inspiration.

Speaking the dream.

Having a vision.

Moving people.

Is your dream BIG enough?

-David Wood

P.S. Be sure to leave your thoughts on this one and share it. I think it will open your mind a bit to what’s possible in our industry. Dave Severn has been living the dream in our industry since the early 80′s, and now has more than a half million people in his organization. What can you do?

There's nothing to be added to this post, it's the very essence of what a blog should be: focused content, precisely targeted and the living proof of what does it mean to be an excellent inbound marketer.

This is a great idea David.  I have a few tapes and books from when I did Amway.

Love how you turn it into an audio.  I really enjoyed this audio. 

I taped it through Net Video Hunter and saved the link.

Thank you for this.  I was in Amway back in the early 90's and like an idiot got rid of all my classic tapes.  This was one of my favorites.  Was nice hearing this again.

I was about to use the title of this tape as my blog post.  This was and still is one of my favorite motivational tapes I ever owned as a former Amway distributor.  Dave Severn's message is timeless.  He and many other inspirational leaders in my former years with Amway helped shaped the way I feel about business and gave me the confidence to fulfill my dreams.  Thank you for putting this online.  Just listening to it again brought back many good memories.

Dave,This is William(Bill) McKinnon and i was at the convention in Dallas when this was recorded. I was about 100 feet from Mr Severn and it was awesome. Thanks for putting this on here for 2 reasons and they are 1.) It brings back memories and 2.) It motavates me to get off my ass and to start dreaming my dream again.

This is fantastic! I have heard David Wood tell his version of the story of the bear going 10 feet forward and 10 feet back on Empower Hour.

 

This audio with Dave Severn is quite amazing and I can hear where David Wood was heavily influenced in a very positive way from this.

 

Even Bill Brit from Amway is mentioned here. Wow! Simply amazing and enormously inspiring. Thank you so much for sharing. This is certainly a high value lesson in motivation and action.

My all time favorite tape. Changed my life. Because I had my mind open to hearing the message in it... and didn't let some idiotic ego get in the way of taking advice from someone having success. As for "Brent" up there... why in the hell would you ever focus on any kind of failure rate? A champion focuses ONLY on (1) Who's WON here before. and (2) How did they do it. Only a LOSER focuses on failure. That goes ANYWHERE in life... so drop the bottle, change your diapers... and grow the hell up... the world. is. real. Deal with it. Plus... that cliche you're throwing around is completely false and makes you look like a wussie bro. ;0) Man up. Franco "The F-Bomb" Gonzalez Keep it real. Help others. Win.

Awesome post & audio, Dave. I love Amway tapes... they're so inspirational. A few days ago, I had to search around my house for my old Amway CDs and started listening to them again. I love Dave Severn. He doesn't sugar coat anything. He tells it like it is. Thanks for sharing. Make it a fantastic day!

David, Thank you for posting this classic. I wish I had some of my old DBR tapes. Amway was my first attempt at network marketing, and while I was not successful with it, I loved my time there.

Hey Brent Studer, You are exactly the kind of pig he's talking about.you should listen to his other tape where he talks about Mickey mouse with the tails in between the legs and squeaking around and that could be you too now.

@marketinglogics Get Net Video Hunter, it's free.  Once you set it up it automatically tape videos and you save them to your computer.

 @Wyrm3106 I agree that it is an amazing recording. You are fortunate to have been there! But you should really hear David Wood now! My goodness how he has been positively influenced by Dave Severn!

 

But David Wood offers a perspective through his own Empower Network that is something different and awesomely powerful itself.

 

I am listening to his partner David Sharpe right now on the Empower Hour call that is on every Monday Night at 9pm Eastern; 6pm Pacific.

 

If there is any way to begin dreaming the dream again, get in to Empower Network. It is one of the best things that has ever happened to me in my life... EVER.

I LOVE this tape dude - my favorite speech of all time - to me, this is better than 'I have a dream' by Martin Luther King Jr. ;) (although that's badass, too - I listen to it all the time)
