I have been receiving your encouraging articles for some time. I always save them in a file. I want to thank you and let you know that next month I should be able to subscribe to the magazine.

When I started my business, I was dealing with a health challenge called Multiple Sclerosis. Having it for over 35 years has not made it easy to learn how to be a great business leader. I am now a self-taught health and wellness coach and the president and designer of my own soon-to-be NPO [non-profit organization--Ed.], which will provide funds for nutritional products to help others with MS and other health challenges.

This is what I see myself as being and doing--thanks to articles such as the ones you have been sending. Each article helps me reach out even more. My husband and I are now working together to change our financial future.

I would like to share a couple of Daily Motivations I received a few years ago and have continued to read often.



While your character is formed by circumstances, your own desires can do much to shape those circumstances.

The only thing over which you have absolute control is your thoughts. It is this that puts you in position to control your own destiny.

Nature is at work around you. Character and destiny are her handiwork. She gives you love and hate, jealousy and reverence. All that is yours is the power to choose which impulse you follow. You can at any time decide to alter the course of your life. No one can take that away from you.

You can do what you want to do.

You can be who you want to be.

Your greatest power is the power to choose.

Life is what you make of it. The power to succeed or fail is yours alone. You alone have the responsibility to shape our life.

Nothing and no one can deny you greatness once you understand this. There is no one to stop you but yourself. No one can cheat you out of ultimate success but you.

More powerful then all the success slogans ever written, is the realization that everyone has but one boss.

That boss is you.

Picture yourself vividly as winning--that alone will contribute immeasurably to success. What you see is what you get!

Again, thank you for your articles.

Got Writers?

I am a professional writer deeply engaged in network marketing. I found your magazine at Barnes & Noble last night--it is impressive!

I'm writing to ask for your writers guidelines, submission policies, and/or editorial calendar, if available, as I would be interested in submitting articles for publication consideration.

Thank you!

--Linda Anger, President,
The Write Concept, Inc.


We have no writers guidelines per se, but are always delighted to receive reader submissions. Indeed, many of our articles have had their genesis with the author's first noticing a copy of Networking Times on a Barnes & Noble shelf and thinking, "Hmm, I wonder if they take reader contributions?"

The standard length for an article is 850 words (don't worry, most pieces we receive are longer--that's why we have editors); you can judge appropriateness of content by perusing the pages you hold in your hands. We do not pay our contributors (no, not even the famous ones!); all articles save those by our own staff are offered freely as a gesture of service to the profession.

Plus, the recognition isn't a bad fringe benefit. -- Ed.


Gravy, Ice Cream and Our Millionth Visitor

Thank you so much for these articles [the regular training pieces emailed to www.network
ingtimes.com members]. Networking Times is my most valuable resource--and these extra articles are gravy on top of that.

--Ann Duncan


Just wanted to thank you for the high quality paper your magazine is printed on. I was reading a copy this evening and some ice cream dripped onto the text. A quick dab with a napkin and not even a trace of a stain remained.

Keep moving,

--Shannon Adams
