My Story

Before I tell you what my life is like now, let me explain how I got here…

brandon frye network marketingNo, I wasn’t always a successful network marketing professional and I didn’t always work for myself. In fact, like most Americans, I worked many different jobs to try and make ends meet. However, I never seemed to get ahead. Or, as soon as I thought I was getting somewhere, the company I was working for would do massive layoffs or cut hours. I was beginning to feel hopeless. I was falling behind on my car loan, rent, utilities, and barely had money for food. How would I ever be able to get on my feet for good? I began to wonder why some people were successful while others struggled like me.

A Degree of Debt

In 2011, I decided that the only way to get ahead was to go back to college and get a degree. That way I could get a better job… and in an industry that actually excited me. I enrolled in classes and set out to get my degree in Computer Information Technology. Starting salaries for Web Designers in North Carolina (at the time) were between $35,000 and $45,000 which was more than I had every made in a year. I enjoyed learning and soaked up all the information that I could. However, this still didn’t fix my current financial struggles. In fact, I was getting even further behind because I wasn’t able to work as many hours and was now accumulating student loan debt. By the time I graduated I would owe $40,000 to the government just on these loans alone! How was this “getting ahead”?

There’s Got to be Another Way

I continued my education for 2 years and was learning all sorts of new and exciting things – coding webpages, computer programming, database management, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), etc. I even started my own freelance web design business on the side which turned out to be a LOT of work for very little pay. But I did get my first taste of entrepreneurship which was really exciting!

I also learned something very frightening that year. I overheard my instructor talking with another student about the current job market for web designers. A student was saying that he was applying for a position at an IT firm in the area, mentioning his asking salary. Our instructor laughed and told him he’d be lucky to get $25,000. I was crushed… how could that be possible? $40,000 in debt and I’m lucky to get $25k my first year? That just didn’t seem right. There had to be another way…

My Breakthrough

A couple of years prior I had run across a “work from home” opportunity on the Internet. I had been searching for a way to make money from home. But all I found were these gimmicky websites that promised loads of cash to fall into my lap. I had thought that the idea of getting mixed up in something like that would be a huge mistake. I mean, if they worked, why didn’t anybody that I know do these things? I was sure that I would lose money and didn’t want to take the risk.

However, at this point (2 years later), something had changed. I was willing to try anything to get out of the rat race for good. If anybody was making money online, why wouldn’t I be able to? If I plugged in and learned what these other top marketers were doing, I stood to gain some success myself, right? Without really knowing what I was doing I joined my first opportunity and was going to do everything I could to make it work.

Enter Network Marketing

Now this is the part of the story I almost don’t like sharing with people. Why?.. Because I did what most people will never do in this industry – I took it VERY seriously and met every obstacle with determination to overcome it. I put my hard earned money into my network marketing business so that I could gain bigger profits. And I hit top earner in my company within a few months. (Most people don’t reach my level of success until they’ve failed a few times, so for them this is almost painful to hear.)

In 6 months I was earning over $10,000 a month and my income was continuing to increase week after week. I could see that I was going to hit $100,000 my first year and made it my priority to do so. But I didn’t only make $100,000.. I made over $175,000 my very first year in the industry! I was also invited to, and spoke on stage, at our company event in Orlando, FL where I gave a presentation on my marketing strategies.

Was it beginner’s luck? Did I just get in with the right network marketing company at the right time? How did I get such incredible results in such a short period of time? Well.. it wasn’t luck or timing I can assure you of that. I know this because I’ve now helped others achieve the same results in even quicker timing. This is because I now know what hurdles to avoid and can guide people in the right direction from day one of their business. So what do I attribute my success to?

Well.. basically three things…

  1. My “why” – why I started the business in the first place. This is the driving factor for all entrepreneurs, it doesn’t matter what type of business they’re in. What keeps you going when times are tough? What do you have to gain or what do you have to lose? This will ensure that your business launches strong if you have that “why” in the back of your mind at all times. You will conquer all obstacles because you have to in order for you to succeed!
  2. Willingness – Since day one I’ve been willing to learn new things. This industry is ever evolving and technologies come and go like the afternoon breeze. If you want to really make the most of your network marketing business then you need to be committed to learning new things. I now teach my members the techniques and skills that I’ve learned along the way so that they can duplicate my process.
  3. Branding Myself – We often say that network marketing is all about duplication. And it is. So I knew that I needed to do what the top earners in the industry were doing. They weren’t busting their butt, chasing down leads.. they had leads seeking them out! What a concept! I was determined to use this same form of marketing to drive massive traffic to my business.

What’s Life Like Today?

It’s hard to explain what life is like today. My life before pales in comparison to what it is now. Where my life once revolved around bills, a work schedule, and helping someone else live their dream, I am now able to live out my dreams, and do it on my own time. And bills?.. They are the least of my concerns today. I’ve even improved my credit score by 200 points!

In the last year alone I’ve travelled to over 10 countries. I’ve done everything from scuba diving in Belize, to riding camels across the deserts of Morocco, to hiking the Camino de Santiago in Spain. And I even moved to Arizona (where it’s pool weather all year long). On top of that, I’ve purchased two new vehicles – 2013 Boss 302 Mustang and a New Jeep to get around town in. And I travel around the country at least twice a month now to visit family and friends… and to just see new places!


Instead of working 60+ hour work weeks, today I often work (if you want to call it that) 15-20 hour weeks. But I absolutely LOVE what I do and I feel that’s very important to mention. I enjoy working and connecting with other entrepreneurs who may be in the same place that I was. And (at this point), I’ve successfully helped thousands of people begin making money from home in their spare time using my strategies. That in itself makes everything worth it!

You Too Can Become a Top Earner!

If you’ve reached a point in your life where you’re searching for another way. If you’re tired of working on somebody else’s schedule and asking for vacations or a pay raise. If you’re ready to get out of the rat race and join the ranks of other top earners in the industry who are living out there dreams. And if you have the willingness to achieve great results in your network marketing business by following my training.. then you need to reach out to me today.

I would be excited for the opportunity to work with you one-on-one so that you can achieve the same freedoms that I have… and in record timing.

Contact me at so that we can setup a time to talk!

There is greatness inside every single person. Everyone has what it takes to become a top earner…including you!
