Patrick M Powers started his first job at 18 and realised that working for someone was not a sustainable option. It was boring. So rather than being stuck, at 21 Patrick made the decision to start his own business. When it failed the consequences were losing his home and most of his money.
Patrick had chosen to be a hands-on therapist at a time when the idea was new and pretty radical. Added to this, he was shy and unable to sell himself. Fast forwarding to today, Patrick now runs one of the largest online business networking organisations in Europe with 27,000 members. He has become an expert in influence marketing and copywriting. So of course, there is a story to be told.
Patrick’s journey includes the transition from the shy starving taxi-driver in Copenhagen/Denmark to retiring in style in the Caribbean.
The Power of Networking
Aware that the failure of his first business was down to a lack of knowledge and confidence. Patrick started learning the ropes and by 2003 he had landed himself in network marketing and hit the big time with a growing company.
Say what you like about network marketing, if you use the system and do the work it is possible to be successful. However, being shy still an issue. So he went on to develop his own system, and it worked. It worked so well that he built a team of 10,000 people. That was it, he was made and set with an income for life until he lost it all.
Now stuck in the Dominican Republic and broke, his last cash was sitting in a safe-deposit box in London, he had to borrow money to fly to the UK to get it.
This is a story that leads from despair to life-threatening illness to recovery. We touch on how to choose a good network marketing company, the power of meditation, presence, NLP and some weird stuff. We also cover the issues of Social Media, the growth of Narcissism and the use of networking (not so easy in a COVID world).
You will get to hear how Patrick built the largest business meet-up group in Europe and how he plans to take that project global. It’s a fascinating story and I hope you enjoy listening to Patrick M Powers as much as I did. His links are below.
