Welcome to the premier edition of Networking Times, a journal aimed to be the Harvard Business Review of network marketing and direct sales. Networking Times is a collaboration of the top minds in our profession, people who recognize the profound shifts taking place in our world.

Technology and communication have ushered in a new era unlike any the world has ever seen. With access to e-mail, instant messaging and the Web, people today are better informed than ever before--and they're willing to make their opinions and experiences known. As Yahoo! Senior Executive Tim Sanders explains so brilliantly in Love is the Killer App, the buying public is beginning to recognize that they need not put up with products or services that don't deliver, companies they don't like or bosses they don't respect. This recognition of choice by both consumer and worker will spell doom for shoddy products, noxious companies and toxic personalities. Networking Times leads the charge toward global prosperity through a philanthropic economy.

We are dedicated to making a difference in people's lives.

Our profession is an extraordinary vehicle for personal growth. It also offers unprecedented opportunity to serve a calling higher than self. Our pages feature the most effective recipes for success, along with inspirational stories about you--the people who make such a positive difference in the lives of so many.

Our honor is not for sale.

We will not jeopardize our name or reputation by becoming a recruiting tool for individual networkers or for individual networking companies. We will promote our profession as a whole. You will never see network marketing corporate nor distributor ads. You will not see company names mentioned in our profiles and features. You can confidently recommend our journal to your organization without fear of compromise.

Integrity is our watchword.

We aim to promote the highest ethical standards and help foster an ever greater sense of pride in your chosen profession and the industry that supports it. Our policy at Networking Times is to discourage proselytization and encourage all distributors to stay with their current organization until they have achieved the success to which they aspire.

Now it's your turn! Be proactive about supporting your business with Networking Times. We are here to serve as a powerful resource at your disposal. Our growth depends upon your support. Help us set the standard for our industry, articulate the knowledge, and instill the confidence and pride your people need for success.

Welcome to Networking Times.
