How-To Books on Network Marketing:

Our book list has been compiled to help you learn why network marketing is the most empowering, ethical, personal-growth-oriented, and creative form of business ever created for ordinary people. No kidding.

When you combine a company of such integrity and stability as we have in Young Living, with products of such genuine value as we have in our oils and oil products, and add a compensation plan that rewards Distributors generously and fairly for marketing them to others, both at the beginning and for the long term, you have a solid, trustable vehicle to achieve any degree of prosperity you wish….certainly to the point of getting out of the rat race--the only limit is the one you set for yourself!

The next step is to learn. Learn with the help of your devoted upline members to do the simple but challenging business of reaching out to other people to share with them the opportunity of a lifetime!

Learning means a lot of things, including reading. These books will help to inspire and instruct you. They are worth money in the bank if you read them and heed their excellent advice. It is in no way meant to be a comprehensive list, but it covers the basics and can give you a better understanding of the dynamics and demands of building your own business. With that, you will be able to decide with much greater clarity if network marketing really is for you.

Below you will find two lists of books. The first is a collection of books published in the last few years, with fresh insights reflecting how the Network Marketing industry has matured. The second is a list of books that are older, but while perhaps pre-dating some of today's tips and tricks, contains solid, time-tested understanding about the unchanging fundamentals of becoming successful working at home and building a successful network marketing business.

Here's to your success!
