We recently interviewed Network Marketing Professional and Network Marketing Mentor Steve Ottewell for our magazine who has helped people from all walks of life to release their true potential. Sharing it with our readers here.
Pro Media Mag: First of all, tell us about the start of your professional career?
Steve Ottewell : My Professional career started in 2012, I was first Introduced to Network Marketing in 2008 and had understood the concept of Network marketing and the Power of a system and leverage. What I did not have was the skill sets i needed in order to become a professional and help reach out to people and help them in a professional manner. I spent the next 4 years gaining that knowledge and skill sets through picking a great mentor and squeezing him like an orange of his 25 years of knowledge in the profession. In 2012 we partnered together in a company and I decided to go full time and become a Network marketing professional and use the knowledge and skills I had developed to become a top earner in that company breaking every company record along the way, with a blue print that allowed us to build a team of more than 30,000 people in 31 different countries in less than 3 years.
Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to get into Network Marketing?
Steve Ottewell : Well to be honest I actually stumbled into the Network Marketing profession, as my background was in the sports nutrition and fitness industry for over 25 years at the time and 15 years as a top National Level Bodybuilder and personal trainer in the United Kingdom. What i didn’t like about the personal training industry was there never seemed to be enough hours in the day to help enough people (Which was my aim) and the more hours I worked, the less hours i got to spend with my family which was not an ideal situation. (I am sure many of you can relate) In 2008 my world and bodybuilding
career was shattered when a virus attacked my nervous system leaving me paralysed down my right arm. As I knew predominantly the network marketing industry brought cutting edge products to the market place I went on a journey in search of a solution.
What I found however was so much more not only a solution to my health challenge, I had also stumbled across a concept that allowed me to put everything I had ever wanted to do all in one place. A way to help as many people as I wanted to and make a difference in their lives, while spending time with my family and also supporting them financially.
Pro Media Mag : You are a part of a successful MLM global network, our readers would like to know more about that?
Steve Ottewell : Yes Early this year My Mentor and myself partnered with some other top leaders in our profession to raise our game as leaders so we could reach out and help and guide more people on how to become successful in the Network marketing arena. Our goal as a group of leaders is to lift the profession from where it was in the past into the future and to where it deserves to be a professional industry. My personal goal is to educate and guide people, so they don’t make the mistakes I did in the early days through lack of skills and knowledge, and to cut the time frames down for them so they can reach success quicker. As a Global Network we have proven techniques systems and skills to take people to the very top having some of the best in our profession within our global team of leaders. We have a 2020 vision to make a major impact over the next two years and onwards and to do that many lives will be changed forever.
Pro Media Mag : What kind of help or guidance you do provide as mentor?
Steve Ottewell : As a Mentor I sit down with people and interview them and show them what to expect from this profession and Industry and what is expected of them, for me to many people hype the industry and give and teach false expectations, and I like to keep it real. People can achieve some amazing things in this profession as I am living proof of this, however as I mentioned they need to have the correct expectations from the get go.
I teach and mentor on expectations, skill sets needed to become a professional and also how to work on and off line as in the new age I do not need to tell you how powerful social media is and in the Network marketing profession it is no different.
I have personally taken people with zero knowledge in this profession to the very top leadership levels in their company.
Pro Media Mag : You had faced severe health issues, what made you get out of that part of your life?
Steve Ottewell : Yes as I mentioned earlier I took my health issue in a way as a challenge maybe it’s the competitor in me, however I also see it as a blessing as it really opened my eyes up to what is actually achievable and how many lives you can have an impact on as this I have found truly humbling. When people look you in the eyes with tears in theirs and thank you for totally changing theirs and their loved ones lives it hits you right in the heart.
Before network marketing I would not have believed this possible, well at least for me anyway.
Pro Media Mag : What’s the best part of being a network marketing professional?
Steve Ottewell : As mentioned above the best part for me is the lives you have an impact on. Whether it be helping someone earn enough money to pay their mortgage and stop them losing their home to helping people achieve their dreams and totally change their lives, the beauty of Network marketing for me has been and always will be the people.
Pro Media Mag : Have you set some targets to achieve?
Steve Ottewell : Yes my targets and goals for the next 2 to 5 years is to help 10 people become 7 figure earners in this profession and to do so change 1 million lives along the way and to help those 10 leaders become more successful than myself. It may sound like BIG Targets and Big goals; however we have a BIG vision and the right people steering our ship to make this happen.
Pro Media Mag : Anything else you would like to share with our readers?
Steve Ottewell : My Mission is to have an impact and make a difference, to lead people to achieve their breakthrough moment, and to work side by side with them sharing all the secrets I have learnt in the network marketing profession.
I dedicate myself to and love this profession as I have seen it change so many people’s lives It’s the reason I am living the life I always dreamed of. What I do is working in two ways, one is I am actively working to build and expand my business to grow and second I am a Network Marketing Coach as I have learned by mistakes I have made how to take this business seriously as a profession and how to teach some key principles that can help people not make the same mistakes I did.
Some people can feel overwhelmed and alone in this business, I know I did when I was first introduced to Network Marketing and I want to offer a friendly hand to let people know they are not alone.
