Have you heard about the Enneagram? Simply put, the Enneagram is a system of nine interconnected personality types. They are graphically represented as lines and triangles that intersect in a star-like figure inside a circle.   The Enneagram is used in many...
  Twenty years and three different businesses with very different product lines and sales strategies have taught me more than I'd care to admit about network marketing. It can be very lucrative. It requires time, courage, and persistence. And most...
