1. Built By a Distributor, For a Distributor…

I was the most successful Distributor coming out of the gate, earning $156,000 cash in my first six weeks! Then, I came to learn the product I was selling was way, way, way over priced and in good conscience, I simply couldn’t do it anymore, but I did want to make lots of money working as a Distributor if I could make it real, so…

“I set out to create a Company offering Distributors
a realistic opportunity that pays massive money up-front
on the back of products with real value.”

If it would have been real, if HRI had existed at that time, I would have been retired and living on the beach before I was 32!

I did not start the business with the desire to run a company, have employees, incur overhead and face the extensive challenges that go with it. Who wants to do that? That’s all kinds of work, and I didn’t think of it as fun at that time! I really enjoyed being a Distributor. I was making a fortune. I didn’t have to babysit anyone and, I had complete freedom!


2. The “Ultimate Earning System”…

In order to be a Distributor and earn the massive income I had made prior, I had to start a company because there was no opportunity that offered both the massive Distributor income as well as the real product value! The original thought was to create a company just so I could be a Distributor, making the same ridiculous massive income and thus, enjoying my life without so much of a concern about the profits for a company. I figured if the company could just get by with the Distributors making a fortune, well, that would be perfect as I just wanted to be a rich Distributor myself! Over the years, learning from my experience as a Distributor and running a company with tens of thousands of other Distributors, I added many revolutionary structural concepts and practices that resulted in the “Ultimate Earning System”. Each time I started a new program using the “Time Leverage System,” it got better. Here is the story of my decades-long dedication to create the best business opportunity in existence today! You now have this “Ultimate Earning System” available for you to build upon and enjoy using without having to give up more than 20 years of your life developing it! Thanks, and enjoy reading my journey to the “Holy Grail” of Network Marketing!


3. In the Beginning…

At the age of 28 on Tuesday, November 15, 1994, my father took me to a presentation at the Howard Johnson’s Hotel on Wellington Road in London, Ontario, Canada, to see an hour-long presentation by a company called Fortune In Motion (FIM). A package of 2 Travel Certificates for 4 days and 3 nights on a luxury cruise ship worth $1,300 was to be sold by us, the FIM Distributors, for only $500, a savings of $800. In return, we would be paid $3,500 for selling 2 packages.
Now, you don’t have to be a mathematician to question that if you create two sales totaling only $1,000, how can you get paid $3,500 in commissions? So, realizing that there is some kind of unique leveraging system at work that we did not quite understand, I turned to my Dad and said, “I Can’t Believe It’s True!”, and we promised ourselves to attend the next meeting, determined to figure out how the system works.


4. Understanding the “Time Leverage System”…

The next meeting for FIM was on Thursday, November 17 at the same place. My dad was Captain of a dart team, and he couldn’t go. So, he gave me the money for both of us and said, “You go and if you think it’s good and if you’re going to work the business, then we’ll both join, but you put me in first.” He knew I was good at sales so he wanted to benefit from my ability. Besides, he was the one who had introduced me to FIM. At the end of the presentation, I went up to the presenter and said, “Show me the money, confirm how it works, and prove that the Company can actually pay $3,500 for two sales of $500 each. If in fact you can, well, I’m in.” He did exactly that, I got it, and I joined immediately.


5. $156,000 in 6 Weeks…

By the end of my 3rd day, I had $3,500 cash in my pocket. It’s unheard of to be paid that quickly in the industry. My father, who’s never done sales in his life and couldn’t sell anything even if the product was free, had made $3,500 by the end of the 4th By my 10th day, I had made $10,000. I worked at this business day in and day out from 7 am ‘til midnight, 7 days a week. I hired three assistants with one beside me every minute of every day, doing all my paperwork as well as training the new Distributors I had signed up.
I was very serious about the business; “If you weren’t talking to me about the business, well, you weren’t talking to me, and if you were talking to me about the business and you got in, I’d take your money, then let my assistant take over. Then, I would be onto the next person”. I did that every waking minute of every day for 45 days straight. At the end of the 45 days, I had brought 90 people to the meetings, of which 72 people joined. The company only offered two meetings a week, but I couldn’t wait around for 3 or 4 days until the next meeting, so I started offering meetings myself; 1:30 pm at my office and 7:30 at night in my apartment, 7 days a week, except for the 2 evenings that the company had meetings. I invited everybody from the company meetings to come to my meetings, offering drinks and munchies absolutely free, just bring your guests. As a result, there’d be like 15 people in my living room, and my guests would walk into a room full of people, standing room only, and be impressed.
Since I was making $1,750 per sale, I didn’t care if I spent 10 or 20 bucks for drinks. This minor expense was a really good investment. My guests were impressed with the crowd and saw the other people considering the opportunity, so most of my guests joined! I made $156,000 in six weeks flat. I had a sock drawer full of thousand dollar bills. I kept 6 one thousand dollar bills in my front pocket, and many Distributors would say “ooh, Al, show my guest the money you made,” and I’d pull it out, “See, it’s real. You can make serious money here if you work it.”


6. Understanding Product Value…

I had no problem selling the Travel Certificates, as I believed in the product’s value: 2 certificates worth $1,300 US combined would cost the customer only $500 Canadian. What a great deal. But after six weeks, it came to an abrupt halt; someone called me and said “there is a company in Toronto offering the exact same product for 10 bucks a piece.” I didn’t believe it and needed to confirm for myself. I immediately drove an hour and a half to Toronto and was able to speak with the President, Al Johnson. As it turns out, his company, Fairway Business Incentive Resources Inc. (Fairway), had over 30 different certificates at 10 bucks each, all available by paying a membership fee of $595 US. I felt like a cement truck had hit me. I mean, I was thinking to myself, “You can buy these for $10 each? I just become a member, and I can buy as many as I want? How can I sell a pair of them for $500 when I now know there’s a place you can get them for 10 bucks each?” I just couldn’t continue doing the FIM business. Over the next three days, I walked around like a zombie. I didn’t know what to think! I didn’t know what to do! I wouldn’t answer anyone’s phone calls! I couldn’t talk to anyone!


7. The Grandma Test…

“How in the world can I sell to my Grandma 2 Travel Certificates for $500, knowing she could get them for only $10 each? I would think I’d be ripping her off and I can’t do that!” I didn’t realize it at the time, but that was really the start of what I call the “Grandma Test.” It’s not like she knew about them selling for $10 each, but I knew, and that was enough! I needed to be able look my Grandma in the eye and know she was getting a great deal! That’s why I stopped, even though I had made all that money. I had to stop.


8. The “System is the Solution”…

Well, on the 3rd day, I remembered these words of wisdom, “If you can’t beat them, join them.” So I joined. In my 4th month with Fairway, I earned the largest check the company had ever produced, $13,505 US for the month. This was in 1995. It’s a lot of money today and a lot more back then. However, I had just earned $156,000 in six weeks, so while it was chump change in comparison, it passed the Grandma Test and I could sleep at night. I could still live well doing Fairway, and besides, I knew I was doing people some good.
Along the way, I bought in for 13.3% of Fairway to become a partner and owner. However, my Distributor checks just got smaller and smaller each month as the company wasn’t designed properly. I remember thinking to myself many times, “What If I could make it real? What If I could use a similar system to the one used by FIM, but with a product that had real value?” It just seemed to be impossible, but that didn’t stop me from constantly dreaming about it and trying to find a solution. I came to realize, just as AT&T (one of the world’s largest phone companies) says, “The System is the Solution.” In other words, a good system could leverage anything average to produce above average results. As an example, McDonald’s has an average burger (if that), yet it’s the number one burger joint in the world with 36,400 locations, and its biggest competitor, Burger King, isn’t even half its size (with only 15,000). Many times, I remember thinking, “What if McDonald’s had the best burger as well as the best system?” What if I could make it real? What if I could use a similar commission payment system as the one used by FIM, but with a product that had real value? Wow! That combination would be incredibly successful!


9. Lost in Las Vegas…

I was fully aware that the Fairway ship was sinking as my check was shrinking and shrinking, not $13,000 anymore, not even $2,000. Now, I’m starting to feel the pinch. I had a nice place and a nice car, but I’m used to having some good money to live on as well. A year later, in January 1996, 3 of the 4 owners of Fairway, including myself, decided to go to Las Vegas for the largest electronics show (CES) in the world and look for some new products to revive the company. As we walked past booth after endless booth, the other two got all excited collecting business cards and talking about all these new products. However, nothing appealed to me, nothing got me excited! One night, we went to a new looking hotel called “Treasure Island” for dinner. On the outside of the hotel, there was a great big pirate ship with waterfalls and everything was done Treasure Island style. Inside, everything was pirate-themed. It was like Disneyland with clamshell sinks in the bathroom and mermaid waitresses.


10. The Big Idea…

I was daydreaming on the four-and-a-half-hour plane trip back, when all of a sudden it hit me, Treasure Island! Six months prior, I had run into this guy, Gerry, who is a wholesale supplier of precious gemstones, emeralds in particular, and he sold them wholesale to all the Jewelry stores in London. His wife is Columbian and is connected to the family that owns the Muzo mine, which produces the best emeralds in the world. In fact, all other mines around the world rate their emeralds according to Muzo quality, Muzo 1, Muzo 2, Muzo 3, etc… Gerry explained to me that an emerald of equal clarity and size to a diamond is worth 4-times as much. All of a sudden, I realized I’m speaking to a guy who has direct access to the most expensive product in the entire world. My hairs stood on end, and I thought, “that info has to be worth something.” So, I made a note for future reference. Now, while I was on the plane, it came to me, “this is how I can make it real!” Treasure Island would be the theme. I would use the FIM commission system and emeralds would be the product! As AT&T says; “The System is the Solution.” By the way, Ray Kroc said it many years before. Ray Kroc was the founder of McDonald’s. He walked into the one and only McDonald’s (at the time) to sell malted milk machines, but there he saw the McDonald brothers flipping burgers, and he said, “Listen, you guys are too busy flipping burgers, let me buy the franchising rights from you.” At the time, Ray Kroc was 52 years old. So, how hard do you think he could work flipping burgers? Instead, he duplicated what he saw, the system with little kids in uniform suits and the Big M, etc.! He understood it’s the system that’s important. McDonald’s does not have the best burgers. It’s the system of creating those burgers that took it to the top. What I realized was that while Fairway offered the product value, in order to have real massive success, you need a system!


11. Creating Treasure Island…

I’m in the sky, in the plane, and I’m thinking about Treasure Island and combining the system that had allowed me to earn $156,000 in six weeks with the real product value offered by the emeralds! I got very excited and went to work on it like crazy to get it all set up. After two weeks into it, I got a phone call from the other owners of Fairway, “We haven’t seen you in the office for two weeks, and we know how you work, you work round the clock. What are you working on?” I replied, “Well, I’m just working on an idea.” They interrupted, “we want to see it.” I had not fully developed my idea, but they insisted on hearing about it over dinner. So, they invited me to a nice steak house and after dinner asked me, “what are you working on?” I shared the Treasure Island theme idea with them. There’s a pirate ship, and Distributors have to pass the Jolly Roger (the skull and crossbones flag) with a minimum of two keys (a key represents a sale) to open the Treasure Chest. Everybody pays the Captain, and the Distributor or customer gets emeralds as the treasure.
They loved it. They looked at each other and then back at me and said, “We’re in.” I did not want to have partners, but they insisted. “As you know, we have a big office in Toronto with a large meeting room for over a hundred people, a secretary and an accountant. Everything’s in place, and I (the President of Fairway) will personally go there tomorrow, remove the “Fairway Business Incentive Resources Inc.” sign and put up a “Treasure Island” sign. I also have access to the leader of a group of 300 people that are disgruntled, and the whole group will come to our grand launch.” “Oh and Al, congratulations, you’re the President,” added the other guy. They simply made me an offer that I couldn’t refuse.


12. A Distributor at Heart…

So we became equal partners, and two weeks later, we had the grand launch of Treasure Island; the room was packed full with 280 people, and it was crazy! After the meeting, we invited people back to the office to join. By the time we got back to the office, people had beaten us there and had formed a line all around the building, they all wanted to join and pay us money. Our product was $600, and people were lining up, purchasing products for 2 or 3 people at a time; “here’s for me, my wife, and my friend.” The Sales Teams (Boards) were going crazy. The 1st day, we made $24,000 each. From then on, the company was making over $10,000 a week, easily.
I loved sharing the opportunity as a Distributor, so as soon as I finished my 9 to 5 commitment as the President, I did meetings at Distributors’ houses in the evenings and weekends, promoting the business as a Distributor. I was actually moonlighting in my own business! I started making huge Distributor money, $10,000 a week or more, plus an average of $3,300 a week as President. Combined, I’m making $13,300 a week. I’m 28-years old; I’ve got a nice apartment, a brand new Mustang Cobra, a few nice suits, a fancy watch, a prestigious corporate position and serious money. Life was great!


13. Something is Missing…

After a couple of months, the other two owners started complaining… “We know you’re making all this money as a Distributor and the deal is we’re partners. You’ve got to share that money.” I said, “Excuse me? I’m out there busting my ass every weekday, evenings and weekends. You guys can do it too since you’re both Distributors, but you choose not to. That's my personal money that I have earned on my own time.” As a result of their continued harassment, I started to feel uncomfortable in the office. It just wasn’t fun for me anymore. About the same time, I realized the business wasn’t growing the way I had expected. After 3 months, we only had 1,500 Distributors. Although that might seem like a lot, in three months FIM had about 20,000 Distributors. Treasure Island simply wasn’t working the way I wanted. I started thinking that something’s not right here. Within a short time, I came up with what I thought was the solution, and I was thinking, “I don’t want to give it share it with the other owners. I mean they’re already trying to take two-thirds of my Distributor commission, imagine if it does really take off. Who knows what would they try to take then?” Since I really hadn’t wanted partners to begin with, I decided to sell them my one-third with the thought of starting over again without them.
I invited them to a restaurant and over dinner, I offered them my share in the business for $2 under one condition: that I can compete. They looked at each other and literally fell to the floor laughing really hard. I was so embarrassed that I turned red and shrunk a few inches. The whole restaurant was staring at me now. Everyone was laughing their heads off, and to no one’s surprise, they accepted the deal. Driving home, I thought, “What have I done? Am I stupid?” I was giving up $13,000 a week. As it turned out, I never got the competing business off the ground as I wound up getting involved with something else. In any case, I was vindicated three months later when Treasure Island went out of business.


14. The Importance of Duplication…

I had come to realize that if I wasn’t doing all the meetings, both the corporate meetings at the office and the personal meetings at Distributors’ homes, generally speaking, no one else was doing them. In other words, the system wasn’t duplicating the way it was designed to! We presented the emeralds in a little zip lock bag along with an 8 ½ by 11” piece of paper (the appraisal). For me to sell them was no problem: I’ve got a nice suit, I’ve got a brand new car, I’ve got “President” on my business card and I represent the corporate office. But Distributors are not I, they don’t have my credentials. For them to sell their friend while they’re sitting at the coffee shop, well, their friend would look at that zip lock bag and say, “What are these, pieces from a chipped 7-up (Sprite) bottle? Don’t tell me this is worth $2,000. What do you know about emeralds? You know nothing about gemstones or about making money.”
Before I could implement the solution, I got caught up with my friend, Bernie, and the next thing I know, we started working on a business called Half Price Auto League (HPAL) in the towing industry in the fall of 1996. I did not get back to what I was starting to call the “Time Leverage System” until 2003.


15. Presentation Room Perfection…

I was working away with HPAL when I was asked to go to a Millionaires Business Party in Toronto! There, I saw a unique business opportunity called “Alpha Club” from Europe. I decided to join. I became the number one Distributor out of 250,000 people worldwide in 21 countries. The cost was $5,000, and Distributors were only allowed to bring two guests to each meeting (meetings were on Saturday and Sunday only). In my first 10 weekends, I brought 4 guests each weekend, totaling 40 guests and signed up 33 of them. That was the company record!
After 5 to 10 sales, a Distributor would be asked to join management, but I loved being a Distributor so much that I said no. I was blown away with their system of organization and how it affected the participants! I even moved to England, and then Hong Kong, to master the Alpha system. I learned about organizing the meeting room, controlling a large room with hundreds of people and the act of “Welcoming” new members! It’s hard to explain if you have never experienced it, but the meeting, the room and the entire presentation were organized with Army-like efficiency. This had a psychological effect on the participants, as they subconsciously knew that this opportunity was unlike anything else they had ever seen before!


16. That Treasure Island Thing…

In 2003, I was one of four partners who purchased one of the old Canada Trust Bank buildings in London. One of the partners, a construction guy named Jerry Irwin, got me going again by asking, “Why don’t you start that Treasure Island thing again? That was awesome. I was making 5 to 6 thousand dollars a week.” I thought about it that night, “Yeah he’s right! Why am I not doing that Treasure Island thing again? Oh yeah, I remember now, it wasn’t working properly and I had wanted to fix it, but I never got around to doing so.” So, I took another hard look at the idea I had come up with back then to fix the system to see if it was viable?


17. Zip Lock to Gem-Cache…

I named that idea Gem-Cache. Gem-Cache is like a jewelry store in a box. That was the missing link, which created unbelievable growth and made it work. People can see it’s real; the product is actually worth the appraised value because clearly, the package was not put together in someone’s basement. It was a well-made, manufactured package. Also, Distributors and their customers could confirm the value on the Internet by looking up the appraisal company, The Jewellery Judge. At the beginning, some Distributors took the Gem-Cache to other appraisers. Almost all appraisals came in at more than the value appraised by The Jewellery Judge.


18. The Beginning of Treasure Traders International…

I started Treasure Traders International (TTI) on Friday, October 24th 2003 at 7pm with a presentation in the boardroom on the 7th floor of “The Emerald Center” at 10 Kingsbridge Garden Circle, Mississauga (Toronto), Ontario, Canada. There was a clear view of the CN Tower! That night, we had 4 people show up. From such modest beginnings, with no industry leaders to jump-start the Company, and thus solely through organic sales growth, the Company was able to achieve sales of over $34 million in the first year. The Opportunity was as follows: in exchange for creating 2 sales of precious gemstones, using the Time Leverage System, Distributors at the top of the Board (Captains) collected $9,600 in cash and paid the company $2,600! This left $7,000 cash in the Distributor’s pocket! Products were offered at 34% to 36% of the retail price, depending on shipping and taxes.


19. Rule Number 1…

“Say Nothing, Say Nothing, Say Nothing. What part of Say Nothing don’t you understand?” This was TTI’s strictest rule! A person would attend a meeting, love the product and compensation, and join. The problem was they would then go home and try to explain it to their friends, “there is this pirate ship, you’ve got to get 2 keys and then there’s emeralds…!” Invariably, they would get confused as they had just been introduced to the concept themselves, and since they couldn’t answer questions properly, their friends most likely wouldn’t join. So, we taught people to say nothing to their friends, except to say, “there’s an opportunity to earn big money” and then just get them to the meeting. This resulted in a much higher success rate.


20. Massive Growth…

From the start, we did a minimum of 13 meetings a week; at 1:30 pm and 7:30 pm Monday thru Saturday, as well as 4:30 pm on Sundays. I remember Ronald (the original administration manager and my first employee) as a Distributor saying to me that we should change the program price from $1,000 to $500 as so many people were struggling to be able to come up with that much money. My response to him was to accept $500 if he had to and loan them the difference only if he could secure something of value. When they make money with us, they will be sure to pay you back, but we will not be changing the price!
Within 2 ½ months, on Friday, January 9th 2004, we moved to a meeting room at the Novotel Hotel in Mississauga and had more than a hundred people in attendance. Within about 4 months, at our Mississauga venue, we had an average of 65 people during the day, 250 at night and 350 on Sundays. The growth rate was crazy. We constantly had to search for bigger rooms/venues, eventually leaving the hotels and going to conference centers. Over those first few months, many Distributors wanted me to open in lots of other cities, including my home city of London, but I ignored their request so as to stay focused. It was just one city for the first seven months, but it was blow your mind successful!


21. $34,000,000 First Year…

Six months later from that first day in October, on Sunday, April 18th 2004, we had our official launch with 1,300 people; TTI had simply exploded. Oh, and just so everyone knows, Ronald was somewhat right about changing the price of the program. However, instead of decreasing it to $500, I increased it to $1,200 that day! Within 365 days, we had 40 cities across Canada (most were operating 13 meetings a week) with over 50,000 Distributors. By this time, we had created over $34,000,000 in wholesale sales or over $100,000,000 (yes 100 million) in retail. Part of the excitement and growth was the payment for products was made in cash and received by the Captains. Thus, commissions were paid instantly. We originally started with only emeralds, but soon added rubies and sapphires! Eventually, more and more products were added to the company’s offerings, ranging from travel to hot tubs to electric motorcycles, as well as the unbelievable addition of hundreds of products from a Trade Exchange/Barter Swap company called “Go Trading!” that accepted emeralds from Distributors at full retail value for trade.

22. Life is a Highway…

Then at the end of our 1st year, we had our anniversary Gala. I flew there via a helicopter, landed on the CNE grounds (Canadian National Exhibition), and jumped into a brand new SL55 AMG Mercedes Benz with a 16-second button ($30,000 Lorinser Package included), a $192,000 sports car. It was actually the fastest production car in existence at that time, and I drove it right into the middle of the Conference Center event where 1,400 people were receiving white glove service, including all you can eat and drink. I got out of the car and at that moment, the curtains opened and there was Tom Cochrane, to the delight of the Distributors, playing “Life is a Highway”. We had hired him and his band for $120,000 to play for two hours that night. It was unbelievably awesome.


23. Rogue Distributors…

The Company grew very fast, but most cities did not have the presence of Head Office staff overseeing the transactions conducted at the meetings. So, some rogue Captains started to steal funds; despite earning $7,000 in cash each time, some Captains decided to keep the entire $9,600 and not buy the products from TTI that they were obligated to supply to Distributors who had paid them the money. TTI hired some undercover agents to stop the Distributors who were stealing. We spent nearly $400,000 and after a few months of our investigations, the Government informed TTI that we were under investigation by them. So, I instructed our undercover team to cooperate with them fully and give all the information we had collected.
After studying the information from us, the Government came back two weeks later saying, “We’re going to continue the investigation, but we’re not investigating the company anymore, the company is fine. We’re going after the Distributors that are stealing the money and not supplying the products to the end purchasers.” We never heard from the Government again. However, because these people had stolen so much, and despite the Company’s attempt to fix the problem, irreparable damage had been done to the Company’s reputation, and I had no choice, but to close it down.


24. NewCo…

I made the following announcement at a meeting of almost 200 people in Hamilton, Ontario, on Thursday night, January 12th, 2006; “we are closing the next day, Friday.” That was a very depressing day. But not to worry, as we would re-open a company, which we will call “NewCo” for now. The new company would be completely computerized so that no one could ever steal again.


25. The Launch of Business in Motion (BiM)

Six months later, on the 17th and 18th of June (Father’s day weekend), we launched NewCo, which was named Business in Motion. We had over 400 people attend the initial meeting and did over $500,000 in sales in our first week. I had rebuilt the company to be Internet-based. However, I didn’t know the Internet and its capabilities well enough, thus, it didn’t quite work as expected and sales dropped slightly every week. After nine months, we were down to almost no sales. It became obvious that it wasn’t working so I needed to re-build it or do something. I decided to take a complete break for a week, away from my phone and all Distributors, so as to just concentrate on rebuilding the system.


26. Perpetual Motion Does $32,000,000 1st Year…

Now that I had 9 months experience working with the business online, I had a much better idea of what was needed to make it work. I called my new online system “Perpetual Motion”. The price was changed from $1,250 to $3,200, and I added a new product, the UltraLife Club (ULC). I introduced it to 20 people on Sunday, March 4th of 2007, at my personal home. The next day, we launched it at Four Points by Sheraton Hotel on Dixie Rd., Mississauga, and, as they say, the rest is history. It blew up to over $32,000,000 worth of sales within 365 days. BiM expanded all the way across the country into 20 major cities, most of them doing 7 meetings a week.


27. The Wall Street Crash…

Was on September 30th Canada is just north of the border and USA’s largest trade partner, so within a short period of time, the financial tsunami came across the border to Canada and soon, everyone began to feel the pain/struggle for money. Where before people attending the meetings always seem to be able to find $3,000 to buy a product, suddenly, the money seemed to dry up, becoming almost impossible for most people to get their hands on it. Business got a little tight. We kept going anyway… Later, the company was put on a temporary hold due to a car accident with the hold lasting over 5 years, becoming too long to revive it. (For more regarding the car accident and what followed, please refer to “History Facts” at www.AlanKippax.com)


28. From Good to Amazing…

Beginning with the car accident, unforeseen circumstances kept me away from the business for 5 years. During that time, I did nothing but revamp the entire system from beginning to end, over and over again, year after year. After some in depth testing, it became obvious I had totally perfected this Amazing System. Five years’ experience in any industry at the top of the field makes you an expert, so people would have to agree that 22 years combined as a Distributor, Company Owner and the System Developer would make one an expert in the field, right? Not only did I live and breathe the business for most of the previous 16 years, earning massive amounts of money in the field, but I also spent literally every waking moment for the next six plus years rethinking, re-evaluating, improving and tweaking the “Time Leverage System” to perfection.


29. A New Beginning…

I moved to London, UK, on March 11, 2015. Wanting to find out the “state of the Industry” and its workings in Europe, I started attending MLM meetings in London and Poland. I always came early to each meeting, sat in the front row, and got to know the players. The idea of going to the Philippines came up, and I considered going there for a couple weeks of holiday. I had learned that the Philippines was the fastest growing network marketing country in the world, growing at a rate of 31.3% year over year vs the UK at 7.2%, US at 5.9% and Canada at 1%. So, I really wanted to learn more. decided to go there, landing in Manila on June 28th with a return ticket for September 9th. That’s nine straight weeks to learn the culture as well as to understand how the industry operates there first hand and figure out how we could maximize on the country’s fast growth. Before the nine weeks were up, I could see many reasons to start this incredible global business I had been developing for the past 22 years from the Philippines.


30. Oliver Koncz Arrived in the Philippines…

on September 7th, and we started to put it all together. We initially postponed our tickets until November 27th. However, on November 8th, we hired our first staff for the company and ripped up the tickets. At the time of this writing, we’re all still here. As of the end of April 2016, eight of us work in the office for at least nine hours a day, plus seven hours on Saturday every week to bring “HomeRun International” (HRI), with it’s “Ultimate Earning System” about as soon as possible. That’s the “Time Leverage System”!


31. Record Breaking Big, Worldwide…

As you can see, a whole lot of improvements have been made along the way! Let me confirm, this is not a mistake or an accident. This is not something that may or may not happen. This is something that will happen as has been proven by the system’s history. This company, HRI, is going to be record-breaking big worldwide!!



That’s the history, that’s where it came from. That’s how it all started back in 1994.
