When we decided to sign up for Russ DeVan’s Success by Design un-training course, I must admit that it was with a modicum of trepidation as, being totally new to network marketing, both my husband and I felt absolutely overwhelmed in the mire of folklore and opinion. From the outset we had been flooded with a plethora of “Just do it my way and you’ll be a six-figure income earner in a month” and “Repeat this script and you’ll have no problem signing people up”, all the while struggling to overcome our own lack of knowledge and potential prospects’ immediate negative reaction to multi-level marketing. And the fact that we seemed to be really bad at it – people making high ranks daily while we battled to sign anyone up!What an absolute gem Russ is; his unassuming delivery style coupled with incredibly in-depth knowledge of the industry gave us immediate relief and confidence that we hadn’t made the biggest mistake of our lives! His ‘Success by Design’ just makes sense; his constant reiteration that quality is always preferable to quantity is refreshing in an industry which prizes urgency and immediate growth. Not that Russ doesn’t believe in urgency; this is always important, however by ensuring that each participant has a complete understanding of the process and fundamentals of their business and what they’re trying to achieve, gives each and every attendee both the assurance and the tools to impart this knowledge to their new team members. The most beneficial elements of the un-training have to be:• Understanding how to prospect by building relationships not selling• Establishing a project and developing a duplicatable, systematic and structured approachThese benefits, coupled with the confidence and support that Russ imparts, makes this course incredibly valuable and neither my husband or I would have any hesitation in recommending Success by Design to anyone embarking on a MLM career.
