How I Found Jesus Through Network Marketing

There’s a lot of Christians in MLM for good reason. Network marketing is about community. Here’s How I Found Jesus Through Network Marketing.

How did you find Jesus, or are you still searching?

Believe me.

I had no idea I would come back to Jesus and God.

I spent decades doing it my way.

From porn addiction to alcohol addiction to several lost jobs and broken relationships.

“My way” created a selfish, narcissistic fearful man.

I didn’t like people because I didn’t like myself.

When I found network marketing, I saw all the self-development the leaders talked about.

They had a certain light in their eyes and a lot of them talked about God.

Here’s How I Found Jesus Through Network Marketing

When I discovered network marketing in 2014, I knew I had found the business of a lifetime.

I already was familiar with affiliate marketing, but had never heard of network marketing.

But, I soon realized that network marketing was about “networking” with lots of people.

I had been sober for 8 years, but didn’t have Jesus, a support group, or even friends.

The last friendships I held were alcohol-related, and now, I simply was afraid of people because I had hid at home so long.

The Struggling First Years without Jesus

Like a lot of new network marketers, I just wanted to make money, and the less contact I had with people, the better.

I was basically a hermit coming into one of the most social business models on the planet.

But, I didn’t want to quit.

I knew network marketing offered unlimited income (no income cap) through passive and residual income, which meant I could created a life-changing income stream and eventually live life on my terms.

My MLM business sucked for the first couple years.

I spammed my opportunity all over social media.

I rarely got anyone into my business.

My conversion rate was under 1% most of the time.

The only reason I got people in my business is because I had automated my Twitter account and had over 200,000 followers.

Other than that, I had built no relationships, no real followers, and certainly no quality leaders in my MLM business.

So, I began to look into self-development, just like the leaders talked about.

I began doing positive affirmations and Law of Attraction.

I listened to wealth hypnosis an hour a day.

I created a vision board. . .

Nothing.

I turned to more intense alternative therapies, like Shamanism and using plant medicines from the Amazon.

One day, I drank a cup of plant medicine with my wife, and an hour later we were both having a “bad trip.”

We were basically writhing on the bed with a dark sense of unhappiness.

I was considering calling 911.

I didn’t want to escalate it by panicking, but all I could think about was my racing heart.

I finally decided to ask Jesus in and help us.

I hadn’t really asked him in before.

All of a sudden there was a warm presence in the room and I instantly became sober.

I was overwhelmed with a sense of well-being and confidence.

I knew Jesus was there.

And, as I looked over at my wife, she was sobbing and I said confidently: “Jesus is here.”

And she looked at me with tears running down her face and said: “Yeah, I know. . .”

Jesus and the Holy Ghost were now inside of me, but it was still a little seed.

I had no idea it could grow without me knowing it, but it did.

A couple months later, my wife had to go to work.

She had a job to support my failing MLM business, which is another pathetic story in itself.

When she left, I randomly thought about how Brian “Head” Welch had left the band Korn, walked away from a $20 million contract, because he had found Jesus and stopped a two year meth habit instantly.

I already had one of his albums and decided to listen to it.

The first song was L.O.V.E.

I love harder music, and the guitars were cool.

As a drummer, I don’t listen to the lyrics that much, but a line that he sang instantly opened my heart and I started to wail.

The lyric was:

“Stop resisting and come home to me.”

He was singing as Jesus, and when he sang that lyric, I broke down sobbing.

It felt like I had been running since I was 8 –  37 years of pain, suffering, and without Jesus.

Here’s the song:

After this night, I wanted to know more about Him.

Sometimes, my heart would open and I would cry uncontrollably.

I used to judge this as suffering or weakness, but I learned that it was actually love pouring out of my heart, endless love from Jesus.

I began to turn my life over to Jesus more and more and my network marketing business took off.

The ultimate paradox to this was you don’t live life on your terms with Jesus.

You ultimately become a vessel to serve him.

I was scared to let go of my greed.

I wanted money more than Jesus.

But, I soon realized all that stuff, the money, girls, cars, etc, actually made me kind of ill and empty inside.

The only thing that made me feel better than worse was developing a better relationship with Christ.

Seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33

To Sum Up: How I Found Jesus Through Network Marketing

I am still new to all of this.

It is scary and exciting at the same time.

I would love your feedback on how I can better serve Him and if you have any resources that would be awesome.

Oh, and I wanted to ask you: “How did you find God?”

    1. Hi Dana,

      Thanks for stopping by and reading my article! It means a lot to me. At first I wasn’t going to publish your comment because you included your opportunity link in the URL section, but then I realized that there is enough abundance for everyone through Jesus, and so I let it go. This is big for me. I have never published a comment with an opportunity link. Thank you for opening my eyes a little brighter towards God and you have a wonderful evening. And, thanks for checking out my opportunity as well. 🙂

  1. Great article!
    “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7

    1. Thanks for reading this Del! I think Jesus wanted us to meet for a reason. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. The title caught my eye when I saw it on twitter. I too have found great benefit in connecting with other Christians who are in the industry and it is a joy to allow my Christocentric worldview to be seen in how we conduct business online. Keep the faith brother!!

    1. Thanks so much for your comment Teddy and visiting my site! I am still new to accepting Jesus Christ as my savior and feel a little vulnerable. I don’t know what to do exactly, except to praise him continuously. My favorite preachers are Steven Furtick of Elevation Church and Todd White of Lifestyle Christianity. You can find both of them on YouTube and are very powerful.
      When did you accept Jesus and how do you keep your faith strong? Do you have any suggestions of how my path should look like? I’ve been running and hiding behind addictions for over 20 years and I know that Jesus is referred to as the “Prince of Peace.” I do feel safe and calmer than I ever have by having Jesus by my side. Thanks again for visiting my blog! You also have a very nice blog. Maybe I could interview you sometime.

  3. Erik, thank you for sharing your story, I can very much relate to it. I am happy to hear you found your path. I’m looking forward to reading more of your blog as well as your tweets.

    1. Thank you so much, Matt! I am opening my heart and seeing where Jesus takes me! Thank you for visiting. Godbless!

  4. Your article is a very interesting one, I just want to offer suggestions on how you can serve Him more.

    Firstly, I have come to realize that Jesus is more concerned about your love and fellowship for and with Him, than your activities for Him, Matt 7/22-23, Jn 15/1-7, so based on this, my recommendation is you develop a sustained consistent devotional and prayer life, a time to fellowship with Him, in study & prayer, a time to seek Him. Jesus rewards not your action but the motive behind your actions and your faithfulness in your actions.

    Secondly, there is an assignment given you by Him, its the ministry of reconciliation 2Cor 5/17-18, its the mission, MLM, the pay, the network, the lifestyle, is only a platform & opportunity to achieve this mission.

    I hope this helps.

    1. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and giving me suggestions on how to serve Jesus better, Oyoma!

      I understand that doing more “activities” is not going to satisfy him or I. That is just the ego telling me to try and impress Jesus by doing lots of activities, but you’re right. Building a solid relationship with Jesus is with love.

      I just learned the Jesus prayer from watching a lot of cool videos about monasteries on YouTube. The Gregarian chant they do is elevating and fills my spirit. Anyways, I have been saying the Jesus prayer continuously since I learned it and always try to take the “higher road” if I get into my ego or want to argue with someone.

      Thanks again for your wonderful suggestions, Oyoma!

      1. You cant build a relationship with Him on the “Jesus Prayer”, its only a model of prayer.
        If you are married, you cant build intimacy with your wife by repeating certain lines everyday, there is more to it..
        Jesus Himself is the Model, Hebrews 12/2, therefore i urge you to study how Jesus Himself walked in constant fellowship with the Father, He rose up a great while before day to fellowship in prayer.

        Again, if you are married, for that relationship to work you must devote time to your wife, and there must be consistent communication, remember the bible calls us the bride of Christ, therefore the same thing applies..

        Knowing and loving God is really about spending time with God, experiencing His presence daily, as you did when you drank the herbal thing and called on Him.
