With his powerful, paradigm-shifting ideas on leadership communication, Rich walks individuals, teams and companies through a challenging, hands-on process which liberates them from their stifling, success-blocking communication styles. He examines their unique culture of communication and then simplifying unpacks their particular pitfalls whilst simultaneously drawing out their unique strengths.

    • Hi Leon

      Thanks for your comment, and I appreciate that some of the things I have said may be difficult to comprehend, so I will explain and respond to your questions accordingly.

      ‘Your question: If you had nothing, what were you about to lose then?’ I owned nothing, as I had sold this to try and keep my head above water. I still had a car (as this is a necessity when you live in South Africa) which I was hiding so that the bank could not repossess it. We were living in rented accomodation and I was behind on my rent. So losing a car and being thrown out on the street was the looming reality.

      ‘Your next question: So how did this miraculous recovery occur? How did MTI change your life?’ Firstly I think that a miraculous recovery is impossible without work, so let me share about the work I did to get to the point where I am now.

      I joined in April 2019, I started with $80 which was actually rent money I should have paid to my landlord. An $80 start is not an investment that is just a right to earn the 10% referral commission MTI pays. Also the binaries did not start until the first week in September 2019, so the only possible income I could make was from referral commissions. I did have a slight advantage and that may be the miracle according to you and that was I had a reasonable network through my social media work.

      From April I contacted and presented the MTI opportunity to over 1000 people and by the beginning of August I had 102 people in my team, after that my team grew and by the end of November I had over 1000 people in my team. As you can see there are no miracles just hard work.

      As from the 1st of September we could finally start to plan the next phase of our lives. We had planned to move to Italy at some stage, but that was a pipe dream before MTI, this was slowly becoming a reality and at the end of November we left for Italy.

      ‘Your Question: Where you are semi retired, and spending time in the Alps??’ I have laid out what my financial situation was like, thanks to the earning we make from MTI we were able to semi-retire and we now live in Domodossola which is in northern Italy and virtually in the Alps. The video you refer to was filmed in Val Formazza about 40km north of the town we stay in.

      That is my journey with MTI so far and you are welcome to contact me and ask any questions further.

      Kind regards
      Rich Simmonds
