If the very idea of multi-level marketing (also known as network marketing) sends you running for the hills, you might (I say might!) have a change of heart after listening to this episode with millionaire Paul McAneny, Australia’s second largest distributer of Isagenix products.

At the tender age of 22 years old, Josh Nicholls graduated from collage and decided that it was about time to become an electrician. Soon enough Platinum Electricians was born and he went from operating in his parent’s spare room to growing his business by 1,200% in just five years. How did he do it?

He’s also on this last term break before exams. So it’s head down and bum up.
His English teacher set him the challenge of writing one practice essay a day for the 14-days of the break.
To make it easier (and more enjoyable for him) I agreed that we’d both sit down for an hour each day and write. Jack would write an essay, I’d write a blog post.
