    Professional Educational Insurance For Your Dreams!

    In my 6 1/2 year Network Marketing Career, never have I come across a book that shined such a Respectful Light on those of the Network Marketing Profession as this Masterpiece does. No fluff or filler pages, The New Professionals is filled with Solid Documentation and Insightful up-to-date Education, clearing up the distorted preconceived opinions that a lot of people have mistakenly obtained and sadly have held onto throughout the years. While Traditional Business Paradymes are changing extremely fast, this is Definitely a must read for all people planning on entering / remaining in business (both in & outside of the Network Marketing Profession). Dr. King & Mr. Robinson's unbiased documentation confirms that those in this Profession are indeed in the right place at the right time. Readers will clearly see and understand with confidence what they can truly have a hold of upon becoming one of The New Professionals.

    Open Your Eyes - Not Your Pocketbook

    I have read The New Professionals and it has helped me to make up my mind that network marketing is the wave of the future and can be the best vehicle to move out of the corporate world. There are many companies to choose from and this book details many of them. The opinions and stories are helpful. Time and financial freedom are exactly what I'm looking for and network marketing is my future. Your work is not your life, your work is what you do to have a life. When you work for someone else, your time is not your own. You're working to make someone else successful, for their dreams to come true. This book has helped me realize my future and it will help you too!

    Good helpful information given

    Chapter 9, 'I Quit!,' is one of my favorite chapters in the book because it gives the reader the New Professionals IQ (I Quit!) Test. The test questions are thought provoking. Also, I enjoyed reading the 10 trends powering the rise of the new professionals and the growth of network marketing in this chapter. Overall, the book is very informative.

    Old Professional's New Enthusiasm

    I couldn't wait to read King and Robinson's latest ideas on NM.My excitement soon turned to pleasurable anticipation as I scanned the Chapters.Having relished and thoroughly digested some parts,with others still to be frequently re-visited,I say this work is a 'slam dunk'.These writers champion a most mis-understood way of doing business,the companies and people involved.They make clear that commonly held images of NM may be seriously out of focus.If you are a practitioner looking for reliable,unbiased information,skim over the topics then get your copy.If you are even mildly unfulfilled with your current career-path,take a due diligence look at another life-style.Their tough,argueably accurate assessment, of the break-down of the old employment model may disturb some.This book has many portals,each leading to well researched facts and straight forward opinion from two trend setters and respected long time students of the evolution of NM.
