Top MLM Star

A Hotel Worker is a Top MLM 10 Star?

Does it matter?  That she was a hotel worker?

If you’re looking to make it big in MLM, it should matter.


No sales background.

Not well connected, just a worker like some many of us… and built to over $20,000 a month while working FULL-TIME in the hotel.



She did not “drag” a line with her from another deal.

As you’ll hear in this “behind the MLM mask” interview, she had made a few bucks in MLM, not much, but when she figured it out, she made about $5 an hour.

Why do I mention these 2 things?

Simple… no excuses.

Built it big part-time and had no following.

Oh, yeah, no real internet skills either.

What does she do to make it happen?

I want to alert you right now… the humility I experienced, shows up in this chat we had in my yard and if you pay attention you’ll make 3 great discoveries that, together, prove, for once and for all, doing the right things for the right reasons is all you need.

Fran Patoskie shares how to get people started right in 2 steps and what she does to ensure their success.



A simple plan all based on helping others learn to help others… precisely what to do so people help people copy the right things.

Not 10 things… not 85 steps to get started… not self-promotion.



It’s not about quoting the same, tired phrases… or pumping herself up.

Fran knows what “for things to get better, we have to get better” really means.


The kind of work most people are unwilling to do.

Resetting The Blueprint Takes Work, Not Wishing
Resetting The Blueprint Takes Work, Not Wishing

She understands that within each of us is a blueprint that determines our achievement level and until one does the work to change the blueprint, we can not go past a certain point.

I’ve been at this MLM biz for over 20 years and have not met a big time earner who works on self-improvement, physically, mentally and spiritually, like this woman.

Imagine waking up January 1st knowing you were going to push over $240,000 in commissions to start… OK? Got it?  Would you see yourself committed to an hour a day or more working on your mind?

Most people would not.   Real champions lead by example.  Most top earners think motivational speeches are going to do it.   It never does.

By improving herself, doing the heavy lifting, her check keeps rising as a result.  the Master Key six month course is tough.  It requires her best, 7 days a week.   And, because she’s paying the price, the rewards show up, effortlessly in her business.

Take that lesson… she is committed to excellence out of herself… you can see her last 17 weeks of growth at her heartfelt blog, Building a New Blueprint, One Thought at a Time, about the transformation she’s manifesting.


She gets it… skills, not hype, not promises or big pay-checks help others.

The skills she uses are focused on the money making areas… talking to people.

Didn’t you just love “I build the list with them and work with their personals and then their personals as if I sponsored them so they learn what to do”.

This 3-Deep Pattern flies in the face of the “sponsor more” mentality our great industry has morphed into.

It’s really direct, in a nice way, how she pointed out that when we sponsor someone or help someone else sponsor someone that we are “promising” to help them create a “different outcome.”

Fran Patoskie takes that implied promise seriously and I know, for a fact, she always keeps her promises.

  • I am so proud to have Fran as my mentor!! I knew from the first minute I talked with her on the phone that she was someone I could trust. What a treat to see her interviewed, Mark. Mahalo!!

  • Oh Fran , I need to watch this again and again. I learn so much from you. Mark, this was such a magical interview. Thank you .

  • “The kind of work most people are unwilling to do.” I wish it wasn’t true. I may have to give up my willingness to help everybody. … This is so simple to do. It isn’t about fear or most of what people say is the problem… they are not willing… to have a list, add a couple names a day, ask ONE to look and TRUST in the future of their dreams coming true.

    So is it really walking with the walkers, run with the runners and quit on the quitters? I haven’t quit on anyone yet and I no longer chase.

    Wonderful interview, not just for what she says but she has a peacefulness that is soothing and who wouldn’t want to have her as their upline!?? I have noticed those with an affection for silence offer access….

  • What a wonderful way to spend a little of my working time today! I really enjoyed this post and especially the interview video. this all seems so real and personal to me … thanks so much!

  • Such a wonderful interview. Definitely no hype and I loved the sincere, thoughtful answers. It felt like we were really being let in to part of Fran’s world. I really connect with what motivates Fran – helping others achieve their dharma. I think I need to change my PPN from Recognition for Creative Exprsion to Helping Others – although they are all linked. But helping others is the foundation of my true interest. Can you really be successful in NWM if this is not your motivation? I guess so, but maybe it’s harder?

  • Yo! Mama Patoski!! You are the bomb!!! yet just like the “girl next door” or the babysitter I grew up with . . . in other words, so down to earth and real, will you be my __________??? No wait, you already are ‘cuz I’m so privileged to hear you in this interview, thanks Mark 🙂

  • Absolutely wonderful interview with two people who really care about the people you work with!

    I was excited to see that Fran works with the Beach Body program. I got the CD’s several years ago and have used it off and on since then. I will be 77 years old in February and am back to using it after the holidays. I do the ‘Start It Up’ level plus the resistance band workout in the ‘Ramp It Up’ level.

    I am in pretty good shape, Thank God, after having triple by pass heart surgery about two years ago. The Beach Body program really works for trimming down your ‘middle’ and building up your muscle power & endurance.

    Thank you Mark for giving us such good training in network marketing and in life in general.

  • Great interview. I agree with Don, more interviews like this would be very beneficial. I especially liked her comment about how MKMMA has helped her find her DMP. Her comparison of the mental work we do in the Master Mind as being just like working out at the gym really hit home with me. No pain, no gain.

  • This is so true. It follows the same strategy that was outlned in one of many google SEO books that said at the end of all the chapters that there are no tricks to rank well, the content just has to be true and genuine and useful formusers for it to rank well. Good job.

  • Wonderful information. You look great Mark, Congratulations. Tt’s a great feeling to help others look and feel great. Thanks Fran, when it comes from the heart, others “get it.”

  • Ok, I am only 9:33 into this interview and I am already welling up from my core because I feel this way. Now 12:23 in and I have found balance to be a huge obstacle for me as a very involved mother of two. Thank you for the schedule your priorities first step as it is the first time I have heard that! Another nail hit on the head at 17:46! We joined our business to help a non-profit and had no clue it was called MLM with mentors until months later. I will say I have learned very early on the things I don’t want to replicate. Thank you Fran for helping others make wonderful changes in their lives. Thank you Mark for wanting to share your/others stories and knowledge!

  • Mahalo for your very, very kind words Traci….clearly, helping an NPO, you “get it”

  • Thank you for this interview. It has given me so much to think about. I started in Network marketing two years ago and I have also felt tossed out on my own, I even got to a point were I was scarred to talk to people ( not a good thing when that is what the bussiness is all about). I must say though MKMMA is changing my life, bringing clairity and helping me to become more of the person I want to be. Even though is does give me a brain freeze almost daily and I can see watching more interviews like this one along with learning the skills, I will become successful in the bussiness.

  • Thank you so much, Mark! Fran was very down-to-earth and real. She inspires me that maybe I can succeed in MLM after all, especially after hearing her say that the most important thing a person can do to succeed is to be themselves. This tells me that I don’t have to be a “sales person” to prosper in sales.

  • Very encouraging interview. Really gives me hope that we can really make it with what we are doing. The system in our business is similar to yours. We also did not get much help when we started & want to duplicate your way, which is what we are doing. Thanks for sharing.

  • Mark & Fran – Fabulous Job! I totally agree and am blessed to be part of the MKMMA with such amazing company. Learning first it IS about US and WHO we are, then being able to turn that into action and help others.
    I also struggle with Who I am and What Do I want to be when I grow up. More and more, as I get deeper into this I am seeing myself as a mentor like the two of you.
    People want to know you care – I want to know my upteam Cares – about me and wants to help. But first I have to want to help me, and I am, through the Master Keys Experience. Thank You!

  • This was a heartfelt interview. Thanks so much for your off the cuff trainings. They are helping me to grow into the person I want to be, to help others. (My passion) Fran is a person to emulate for sure.

    Thank you for your very kind words. You would not have recognized that greatness in Fran if it was not already within you to be that person you intend to become.

    We are honored to have you in the MKMMA course…..

    Many years ago, once we learned what MLM could really be, helping others succeed I was, at first, sad about the ‘support’ I was not getting. Then the ‘idea’ struck me that it just doesn’t matter….all we had to do was become the sponsors that we would have wanted.

    Fran “gets that” and now you “get it”

    Be the sponsor you would want!

  • Mahalo Larry…

    It really changes things when we “become the sponsor we would want”… shifts the culture on a team very quickly.

    This is precisely what Fran does….she doesn’t worry about what she got or did not get from her up-team…she focuses on being the sponsor she would have liked.

  • Aloha Susan…..

    So spot on…..doing the work.

    Like yourself, Fran is not a “critic” but does the work to gain insight into how she can improve….and we know how it is to make a 6 month commitment to excellence like you have and what a challenge that really is.

  • Yes, Fran Good Job!

    Thank you for sharing the basics of your business with humility, this is so powerful and inspiring.

    Now we know why Mark looks fitter every week (I am not kidding, I really saw it).

    Thank you for this very inspiring interview.

  • Really really nice lady. I know I will be repeating what people said in all the comments above but I just watched this video and it is amazing to see how down to earth.
    It is interesting to see that she is aware of the fact that in order to help other people she must also help herself grow and the best way she found is MKMMA.
    In lesson 16 we read that “success is contingent upon a higher ideal than the mere accumulation of riches..” and this is exactly what she does, her higher ideal is to help people better their life and she is very well financially rewarded.
    Yes, more interviews like that will be great.

  • Aloha John….

    Wish I thought of the Jerry Springer line…..not only do you “get it” you’ve got a great sense of humor…..I couldn’t agree with you more…..enough with the nonsense, eh?

  • Mark,
    A great interview with insight, inspiration and integrity. Fran’s key to success is teaching and actually helping people write their reasons for doing network marketing and to writing their list and training three levels deep. I have just realized that helping others is the best way to grow.

  • Wonderful conversation! Like the “law of attraction” is always engaged, so is everybody on this world a Net-worker, some good at it others not so good at it, some making a bit of money and others making a lot of money. It’s the choices that we make that in the end translates to the results that we receive. It is so obvious with both of you guys that your priority is being true and authentic to yourselves first, which then affects first and has beneficial effects to other peoples lives by embracing similar values and beliefs. It takes some time, but it is well worth the investment in self, seeing the example of Fran and you through this wonderful conversation.

    Reading the comments above is almost as much of an inspiration, as it shows how much it touches the hearts and souls of people who are hungry for this kind of inspirations.

    Thank you Fran, Mark, Daveene and team for all that you do. Keep it coming, I am on my way.

  • Thank you for sharing this with us Mark & Fran!
    “Being of Service to others” & “Just be yourself!” LOVE it!
    Spoke to my heart!
    We all have gifts and something special that we can bring to the team… Brilliant!

  • Hi Mark and Fran, Inspiring …

    Great reminder on being loving to self and others … just be ourselves. Serve others and keep learning …

    You’re a brilliant teacher on love, Mark … because you’re such a terrific example of love in action …

    Thanks, Kevin

  • Hi Mark and Fran,

    Hi, Mark, I am absolutely thrilled to see such an incredible interview with Fran. What a sincere and giving leader she is! I I particularly love the part about building a list with the new team members. Mentoring new members is key to this profession. New members need to feel that they are truly supported to go the next step.

    Thank you, Fran, so much for your valuable insights! Be Blessed.

    Viola Tam

  • Truly overwhelmed and humbled by all of your comments! I found Mark through sheer accident. But was it, really??? We were meant to be friends! God places people in your life to help you get through seemingly impassible situations, and that’s what Mark has done for me. He has been the angel who has lit my path, one step at a time, so that I can see where I am going without falling on my face. I am so very grateful for having him in my life.

  • I have been struggling for 2 years with MLM in LegalShield, a wonderful company, but have learned new insights from listening to your interview with Mark J. Hopefully this advice will turn things around for me.

    Wow! I have thought a out this interview so much! Just makes it so real! Supporting, inspiring, growing on many levels, connecting, leading…these are all things we are made to be!! This business pays each of us for it! The pay comes in many ways, financial freedom is one of them and we are made for that too! We are not here to struggle for every dime! We are here to connect, inspire, support grow! Yay!

    Mahalo to both of you!! Looking forward to amazing connection and success for all! I love this!

  • Mahalo Mark – I do have to keep looking and questioning. I’m sure I’m getting closer, but it’s quite a process – a good and worthy one.

  • Well Mark, This was simply amazing! That is how it should be. Who ever sponsors you should stay with you and train you the right way! Thank you for the insights!

  • Simply great stuff. This format is impressive and great to share with others. The questions at the end were just icing on the cake … ingenious twist on the actor’s studio. Do more, this is what people want to hear. Thanks for the casual setting and conversation …

  • This is a great interiew. I really like the honesty of telling prospects that quality work & committment of 3 to 5 yrs. is required to have success.
