Nick Sarnicola is a Gen-Y leader who became involved in network marketing at the age of eighteen when a stranger introduced him to the business. Completely inexperienced, Nick had difficulty getting his business off the ground, but he kept his eye on the prize and followed in the footprints of others who were successful. In 1999 he hooked up with Blake Mallen and experienced exponential business growth, but soon thereafter his company fell apart, and Blake and Nick founded their own company. Four years into it, Nick decided to return to the field to take the company to the next level. Within four months he became the top earner, producing 80 percent of the company's sales volume.
