The Networker is a How-To, toolbox novel.
It’s a road map around the obstacles that stop most people building their network marketing business.
The story follows Sally McAllister, a feisty mother of two. She wants to stop doing a job she hates and start having enough time and money to actually enjoy her children and her life. But she just can’t get her business really and truly off the ground.
She struggles to build her network around all her commitments. She has no time and very little money. Her friends just don’t understand and, maybe worst of all, her spouse is horrified she started her business in the first place.
She just wants to quit – she’s starting to feel like she just isn’t the sort of person who can make this business work.
But then she meets someone who understands those obstacles. And can show her how to handle them.

In the course of building a successful network I saw many wonderful people get crushed by all those things Sally is facing (you can read more about my story here).
The very things that showed their business was growing were being taken as reasons to give up!
People seemed to feel I’d somehow managed to avoid these, at times overwhelming, growing pains of business.
They were so wrong!
Every single successful person has had to overcome the same obstacles that stop Sally in her tracks.
It’s how you look at those obstacles that affects whether and how you tackle them.
Following Sally as she picks up specific resources and follows guide posts around, under and over those obstacles can help you do the same.
As a new mother of two I got the urge to write a ‘how-to narrative’ – a story showing how these things happened to ALL of us who have replaced our incomes with a network marketing business.
I wrote for an hour every morning (sometimes tapping the keys with one finger around a nursing baby!) and The Networker arrived.
A question readers often asked was, “How did you know that’s how I was feeling?” They felt I’d seen into their own story, read their mind, and identified precisely their fears and struggles.
You are not alone.
Every doubt, every fear, every misgiving, every obstacle you encounter on your road to freedom, has been felt by someone, if not everyone, who has built a residual income stream from a network marketing business.
The only difference between them and you now is that they climbed over those obstacles, they faced each one and took it on. They looked at it a certain way.
They didn’t have super powers, they had staying power, and a willingness to grow.

This is a brilliant "how to" novel, for anyone who is struggling with self doubt, isolation, fear, others' fears, rejection - all those common hazards on the MLM highway (in fact, on almost any entrepreneurial journey). If you've ever felt alone in building your business or wondered whether you've really got what it takes to succeed, then I recommend spending some time with Sally (and the extremely wise Brenda). The Networker is like a compelling read and a coaching session in one - it is both an escape from the demands of your day and a true tonic for your mindset. Highly recommended.
I couldn't put the book down. I cried, laughed and smiled because the tale of Sally in her journey of building her business rang true in so many ways. Reading the book was like having your own personal coach except in the form of reading an entertaining story. Moving forward this will be my go to personal development tools that I'm recommending everyone to have in their tool box as well! Thank you so much!
Thanks Helen for a great read. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and to be honest it was a breath of fresh air. It came with real life struggles, real emotions and really useful ideas and book references. It will definitely be something that I will refer back to and share with the team.
The books arrived, and I am already half way through a copy myself. A great piece of work and a gift to the industry, I think.
I could not put The Networker down - I literally read it in 2 sittings. It's such an engaging story with incredibly powerful, universal lessons that are applicable for everyone striving to achieve something significant in their professional or personal lives. I've just started reading it for the second time and am already starting to notice that I have a new take on some of the lessons, so it's definitely a guidebook to come back to time and again. Timeless and accessible wisdom.
I read The Networker in one sitting - I could relate to so many of the trials and triumphs Sally goes through on her network marketing journey. How Sally masters her mindset and the books she reads make this a priceless reading experience for any network marketer. The story format makes this book easy reading even for the newest distributor. Recommend they read it.
You’re going to come across a lot of people who want all the benefits of being a successful entrepreneur. Like we looked at earlier this month in a blog that resonated with a lot of readers: Pretending to Pay the Price. The benefits? Well there’s the freedom,...
Brandishing busy-ness in an effort to appear important comes off really badly. And it’s sort of addictive. I did it myself for years in network marketing, especially when I became a top 100 income earner in the company. For some reason I figured I’d better...
