In this section, I want to share with you some of my favourite network marketing books and MLM books.
To be fair, they're not all network marketing books.
There are other books too, that I feel have helped make me a more effective home business person: motivational books, books about financial independence, wealth and personal development books.
Network Marketing Books
Magnetic Sponsoring by Mike Dillard
This book changed everything.
When it first came out in 2006 or so, it really shook up an industry that has been "duplicating" the same marketing model since the 1920's.
Mike showed how you can grow your home business without harassing friends and family, without home parties and without cold calling. In fact Dillard's principles inspired this very site.
If you read just one MLM book, please, please let it be this one!
The 4 Color Personalities for MLM by Tom 'Big Al' Schreiter
Reading this book was a genuine eye-opener.
Tom Schreiter exposes the four different personality types that you'll find in network marketing. He then shows you how to blow up your conversion rates by talking to each type in their own specific language!
Whilst this might sound a little complicated, the different types are actually really easy to recognise and so is the "language".
You'll find yourself recognising the different types that you have in your team and you'll laugh out loud when you recognise yourself!
Schreiter writes in an engaging and often humorous style and this is a quick and easy read.
Go Pro by Eric Worre
Seasoned network marketer turned super-trainer Eric Worre's Go Pro is a classic primer for the network marketing business.
It goes over the benefits of network marketing over the traditional JOB model and teaches the basics of prospecting, enrolling and leadership required to build a network marketing business.
Some information may seem basic for the experienced marketer but there are so many great nuggets of info in this book that make it a really valuable read.
Great to buy for a new rep in your team or to introduce a prospect to the business.

How to Build Network Marketing Leaders by Tom 'Big Al' Schreiter
