Learning with Bill
Bill Britt become one of the wealthiest Multi-Level Marketing business owners in history. Although not everyone will agree with everything he said or did, he proved to be a savvy businessman.
I joined the Amway business opportunity in my early 20’s. After trying the Amway business model and purchasing many Cd’s and tapes I decided the business was not for me.
After leaving the business I decided to hold on to a few of the tapes and cd’s by Bill Britt. I kept 6 that we recorded by Bill and Peggy Britt.
Recently listen to them, as I was doing some spring cleaning of stuff I no longer use. I decided to give them one more listen before I listed them for sale on eBay.
After listening to the wisdom Bill has on the tapes, I realized it would be valuable to tell people what Bill taught from stage. Many people do not know of the positive message he conveyed in many of his talks.Everyone wants something, Bill along with his wife Peggy, believed that business solves this problem if people could have a big enough why and dream.
