Why I Started The Empower Network

Man, I’ve been so busy in the last six weeks, that I haven’t even had a chance to post to my own personal blog :)

* yes, I’m going to keep this site going and strong – although my focus is now solely on empowering others to succeed, and be able to live the same kind of lifestyle that I do, and I now have the means to do it.

I’ve been wanting to write a post on this blog since we launched the Empower Network on Halloween day this year, but haven’t had the time.

Literally, I’ve been working probably harder than I ever have in my entire life – and that’s ok, because what I’m doing is making a difference in a tremendous amount of people’s lives all over the world.

I didn’t expect us to grow this fast – honestly, it has been totally out of control, which is where I want to be – in the unknown, and on the edge of life.

Here’s what’s happened in just over 2 weeks (16 days):

We’ve paid out $774,499.20 in commissions

We’ve grown to have over 6,067 paid affiliates in about 40 countries around the world.

Our website for the last 7 days has been in the top 900 websites in the world in Traffic according to Alexa.com:

Here’s the powerful thing though – that $774,499.20 in commissions that we’ve paid out hasn’t just gone to one or two people – an incredible amount of people have started making more money than they’ve ever made in their entire life.

Here’s a snippet – all of these are real and verifiable:

Lawrence Tam has now made $34,500 in only 16 days – he’s a part time Dad, husband, and a full time Engineer.

Toby and Layla Black have now made $30,800 in 16 days – they were a couple of broke musicians.

Bryan Addison has now made $6,775 in just 16 days – I don’t know if we’ve ever talked :)

Jon Mroz has made $9400 in less time – I think 7 or 8 days – he’s a great friend.

Barbie Zabel has made $11,250 in 10 or 15 days – I’ve never met her, and neither had her sponsor, Nick.

He actually called me and said – “Dave, I got a lady named Barbie in my group who’s made over $10k, is that badass or what?”

Here’s the thing though – Barbie sponsored Beau Bridgewater (again, we’ve never met) and Beau has now made $8,850 in only 2 weeks – and I’ve never met Beau, either :)

Although I’m looking forward to meeting him.

Right now – we’re adding over 550 PAID MEMBERS a day :)

Those are not leads – those are people who make a decision.

That’s a tiny amount of the people who are making itlook at these Facebook Comments:  (taken from THIS POST)

The fascinating thing about the Empower Network is the sheer number and quality of people who have gotten on board – and we’re not even a network marketing company – we’re just here to help you make more money, no matter what business, system, company, or affiliate tools you’re promoting – and that’s just a snippet.

There’s morea LOT more.

If you really want to be fascinated, listen to this Conference Replay from this last monday – our second week in business, and more than 2,250 people were dialed in for 90 minutes straight – ignore the intro at the beginning of this – I used this for a voice broadcast:

Download that, and listen to it in your car, and tell me if that’s not powerful.

So we’re doing good – that’s obvious, and not the point of this post.  We have some critics, too – and that’s fine – we’re a new concept, and not everyone ‘gets it’ yet – some people see what we’re really offering, and some people just think we’re only here to get money.

They will see it – and I love them even if they don’t – you and I can do great things together, regardless of whether you see the vision or not.

So I promised that I would share why I really decided to start this company – really, we’ve got to go back in time about 2 1/2 years.

When I started my business online, I was not in a good situation – I needed to make it work.  I was broke, and homeless – although I chose that situation, the reality was that every day of my life was a struggle.

Just as an example, one day my wife and I were hungry, and my brother Jonny and I lifted her up to grab a breadfruit from a tree.  She started to slip a bit and we dropped her, breaking her foot.  It was a small break, but we had no insurance and had to use government medical assistance to get her to a doctor – the doctor didn’t give her a cast, and the break wouldn’t heal.

I made her a cast out of card board and pieces of wood that I dug out of a trash can, and she hobbled around on a make shift cast and a walking stick until her foot healed – somewhere, I have a picture and I’ll dig it up and show you some day – the point is, I know what it’s like to struggle.

I remember not having money for food, the shameful feeling of borrowing money from my Parents over and over again, and walking around a deserted business street looking for any job that would pay me, no matter how menial the task.

When I got started, and made a decision – I took action all day and night.  I can’t tell you what courses I went through, because I don’t remember – it got lost somewhere between writing an article at 4am, making a phone call to a craigslist lead, and making a 200 slide sales presentation while trying to love my wife the best way I know how.

I worked until I almost bled from exhaustion.

I didn’t complain, and I didn’t whine – I didn’t ask my sponsor for anything – no webinars, no tech support – nada.

If it needed to be done, I did it.

And more.

While other people were going to parties, eating out, and socializing – I was marketing, making videos, setting up blogs, and writing reviews.

While other people took their money and spent it – I took it and put it all back into the process, and I can say one thing – that I have out worked almost everyone I know.

It worked.  I started making $5,000 a month, and then $10,000 a month, and then $30,000 a month, and more…

However – about six months into my business, I realized there was a massive disconnect in the industry.  There was too big of a gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’

There was the ‘rockstars’ and the ‘grinders’ – not really much in between.

The reality was – the pure truth, without the courses, the hype, the launches – what we are doing is too hard for a normal person, who works a job, has a family, and is part time.

The real money in this industry is protected by an iron curtain, an almost impenetrable wall of elite – and you know what?  They’re all great guys and gals – truthfully.  But there was nothing for the common man or woman – nothing for the masses in our entire niche.

No matter how hard I tried to teach people what I’m actually doing – no matter how many webinars I did to explain the tactics – people just couldn’t do it all.  It was too complicated – too much work, too expensive.

There was too much ‘buy this to get the results that you want‘, and too much knowledge required to get started.

Outside of the internet, the network marketing industry teaches things that have too much ‘cognitive resistance’ in industrialized countries, and as a result, the real numbers reported by the DSA show that the MLM industry has been in decline in the USA for the last two years – and it’s because what we do is either too complex, or has too much social resistance.

Option #1 – Old School:

Pull out a 1982 notebook, slam all your friends in, and use this script:

“Hi Grandma, I just decided to expand my business operation here in South Carolina and…”

Option #2 – Attraction Marketing:

First, setup…

…everything – learn FTP skills, configure plugins, setup social profiles – go to design school…

…and when you’re done, learn to market :)

Because of the simple reality that people hate chasing prospects – they rush to option #2, with the promise of great riches at the push of a button – but here’s the real problem…

…attraction marketing doesn’t work the way people are socially wired.

As a result, although there’s no emotional inturruptions to doing it like their are in old school behaviors, it’s just too complicated to work without an 18 month learning curve.

Those of us who are willing to quit thier job, go full time, and spend five hundred hours reading forums can make it.

Nobody else.

Ask yourself this, and be honest – who do you know online that makes a REAL full time income part time?

Nobody.

Until this little thing that just happened two weeks ago.

Why?  Because they can’t do it – there’s too much to learn, too many things to do, too much money to spend, and too little profit.

So one day, walking through the woods…

…shirtless (of course)

With the sun shining – I came up with an idea that can change the world.

What if I could build something that paid out exponentially more money than even the company made – where anyone – even someone who didn’t understand technology, FTP, blogs, plugins, or ANY of it – could get started and make more money than I did from my own creation?

What if I could make it so easy – a Grandma could do it?

What if I could make it so credible – a teenager could do it?

What if I could make it so social – that Facebook would love it?

What if I could create such value – that Google would marry it?

What if it was so duplicatable – the old Schoolers would join it?

…and it wasn’t network marketing, wasn’t really an affiliate program…

…butsomething new all together? That couldn’t interfere with what you do.

and the idea of the Empower Network was born.   <— by the way, that’s not an affiliate link – just the blog to go see for yourself.

That day – wandering in the wilderness, shirtless, I also became restless.

For months, I came up with sketch after sketch, process after process – but something was missing – I had the idea, I figured out the technology – and I had money to invest…

…but I didn’t have David Sharpe.

Why was David important?

Because simply – I don’t make high converting capture pages and split test stuff – I create social sales processes – and it’s different.

Sure, I’ve been the #1 recruiter in the top attraction marketing system for 2 years, and am the #1 recruiter in a network marketing business as well – but the reality is, Dave Sharpe can do something I can’t do alone – he’ll sit there…

…not kidding

STARING at a capture page for hours – moving a word to the left, and say:

“God that page looks Gorgeous”

Lol.

And I’ll walk in the room, and look at a single headline, start laughing – and we’ll test it and it pulls 50% landing page conversions like clock work.  That’s a skill that I want to put into your hands.

Dave has a gift.

So I said – “hey man…

“…why don’t we get together – and make people more money, and give them more freedom – than has ever been able to happen, ever – online or offline…”

and we said:

Fuck the bull shitlet’s just pay out 100% commissions

Because it’s not about us anymore – it’s only about you.  You don’t work for me at the Empower Network – I am here to serve you. You are not my slaves, I am your servant.  And I want to help you change your business.

I want to help you change your life.

I want to simplify everything.

If you’ll let me.

The Empower Network is more than just a good idea – it’s a system for the little people.  And it’s not an attraction marketing system – and it doesn’t replace or compete with any sytem or Network Marketing business out there.

It is something new.

It is an idea – an idea that works the way people work.

It’s an idea that works the way the internet works.

It’s a system that pays the way the people want.

It’s a community that can help YOU get what YOU WANT.

It’s an idea that has created a frenzy.

It’s an idea who’s time has come.

It is not about me – it’s about you.

You will be the product.

You will be the face, the training, the message…

…and the inspiration to change the game.

We are the Empower Network.

And have formed an alliance of minds that cannot be stopped.

I want to pay you guys $2,800,000 in commissions in the next 4 weeks.  Directly into your bank account – like a real business owner.

With a real merchant account.

Finally in control.

This is your busines – you will not be silenced, controlled, or told what to do.

I will not stop you from marketing in any way that you desire – as long as it’s honest and ethical you have our blessing.

I will support you in ANY network marketing company that you’re in.

You can find a home here if you hate network marketing.

I am here to serve you, to lift you up – to inspire you.

Will you let me?

In success,
David Wood
Empower Network Co Founder

I have been a member of the Empower Network for approximately 3 months and although I have only made a little money, I am learning, everything I need to learn to make as much money as I want with the Empower Network. And, it is not so much the systems and training offered by the Network, it is what of I learned from the experiences I have had with David Wood and David Sharpe. Two of the most down to earth and authentic people I have ever met. I learned something about 15 years ago at Landmark Education that my mother use to always say to me. It is not so much what you say but how you say it. I equate this to "ways of being" David Wood and David Sharpe have. They are as Landmark describes extraordinary people who are courageous and charismatic. Yes the complete opposite of what David and David describe as "being a wussy." These guys and the people who are joining the Empower Network are changing the World, really, and I am glad I am a part of it.

I just started online the fall of 2011. I knew nothing about it when I started so of course I was scammed out of what little money I had a few times. Both of you David Wood and David Sharpe are the most dedicated people I know. You are amazing! Empower Network is going to be my vehicle to get me out of my predicament. My ex-husband refuses to pay child support for 11 years now, I finally had the courage to insist that my abusive boyfriend move out last June and now he wants half of my house, and I am unable to work since a car accident 7 years ago. None of that is going to stop me, only empower me. Thank you for Empower Network!

I am glad that you decided to make the Empower Network. I am a part of it and loving it. Have you ever thought of making a template of an autoresponder (outside of the swipes and going off of the ones you and dave send through the empower network) that can be used for any purpose that converts and offer it to the innercircle? or even part of the 15k? It would allow them to make up and learn how to do it themselves when they want to create their own semi-from scratch. Just a thought lol :)

You know David, I've been on your e-mail lists for many months now and have been exposed to many of your products. As someone who invests more and more money into my education I have learned which products are worthy and which ones make false claims. As a recent member to Empower Network I can say first hand just how revolutionary this system is. I'm so happy to have stumbled on this and I hope it continues to spread to help all those struggling networkers out there. Cheers Dave!

Hola David, I've been receiving emails from you since January 2010 and I believe this is the most incredible product you've launched! But because English isn't my first language, I'm asking you for a little more information about the products that Empower Network is selling. When you talk about your compensation plan you mention the $100 and the $500 products. How do you use and sell those products? I'm just starting an MLM here in Mexico, that is more like a Businness- Consumer's Club and is doing prety well. How does Empower Network can help me? My country is still not very confident about Network Marketing businesses, but I like challenges. I'll really appreciate If you can guide me. You surely are very busy all the time, but I hope you can answer this petition. Best Regards

I have to agree with Dave Sharpe's comment above "this was the most bad ass post EVER!!!!" I could feel the passion in your words and your sincerity to help people. What you said here: "There was too much ‘buy this to get the results that you want‘, and too much knowledge required to get started." is straight up man...I came online 2 months ago with the #1 attraction marketing system and frikin info overload, and everyone selling a course on something, you're so dam right man! No wonder people drop like flies when they get started, spend all kinds of cash, go broke and quit. Its sad! Now with the brilliance of Empower Network, the bullcrap is cut out completely, FINALLY! Thank you Thank you Dave's for pouring your heart and soul into this and bless you both. Can't wait to one day come to a mastermind at your palace!!! William http://wp.me/p1Jdzp-3w

I wished I would have known about this when the Dave's first launched it. Thank you to David Sharp and David Wood for realizing this is what the people need in this world. Thank you so much again and lets rock this world with this system.

Hey Dave, Great post. Thanks for sharing from the heart... and having the heart to help empower others to be and do and have what they were created for. My first week in Empower Network brought in $6,750.00 with no paid advertising. We're getting ready to drop a direct mail campaign so we can help team members bank some serious cash before Christmas! :-) Peace, Bryan

David, Every one of your blogs has had incredible emotion behind it but this one … WOW … You my friend along with David Sharpe are true leaders amongst your generation. My generation was going to change the world and many of them did, but most took the money and ran. Your unselfishness is truly appreciated! You hit the head on the nail when you said that most people can’t make it in this industry and they have been trying for over 40 years, because they can not do what the top people do, mainly because of time or monetary restrictions. FINALLY someone has developed a system that the average person can and will make money with… and fulfill the true purpose of having a home based business which has always been to help offset the financial burden most people have today and to offer them an opportunity to achieve financial freedom. I once asked you "what the f*#k do you know:? Well I now have my answer : ) I look forward to meeting you on a beach in the near future & thank you personally. Glenn

Dave, I'm glad you pushed forward with that restlessness and provided a solution that so many need. I see so many who wipe out because they can't get a handle on the technology, so they never get around to marketing or making money. They simply give up and vanish. Empower has become the "go to" solution to get the people around me into profit and running quickly. Keep up the great work Carl

Wow David, Such an amazing story there. You guys have definitely been through a lot! Love that you did whatever it takes without asking questions. It did pay off. I love how understanding you and David are. Empower Network is about everyone as a community. I got to say I've never made this much money so quick online as well. I love it and I thank you and David Sharpe! You guys rock! :) It's great to be Empowered!

The Empower Network is an amazing story. Who would have thought that an idea put into action could pay it's members almost $800,000 and become one of the top 1000 most visited sites in the world in under 17 days? One word: Unbelievable.

Aki Wood

The ability that you have given to the average person to make guru money without being a guru is revolutionary. The "build your own product" revolution has been a nightmare. Person after person has been online just selling junk, so they can make 100% commission. What you've created has eliminated the need for people to be assholes... ...because this product is Bad Ass, so there is not need to market horse shit anymore to get paid 100%; just join the Empower Network. -Aki

You've been such a positive role model in my life since I've started marketing online. I'm very thankful for that!
