Bernards Career highlights

Bernard Taylor has been involved in and around the industry of Network Marketing for 3 decades.

His career started first as a distributor with a well known health and nutrition company Herbalife back in 1984 and he soon rose through the ranks learning along side some of the early day Network Marketing Industry greats such as Mark Hughes, Larry Thompson and Jim Rohn.

He picked up the concept of network marketing relatively quickly and immediately and enthusiastically went to work mastering his craft. 

Following on from Herbalife in 1987 he was persuaded to join Larome’ an exciting new company that became a big player in the UK Network Marketing Industry for a period.

Bernard of course excelled and  became a top 10 distributor building  a significant member organization of around 7,000 people and also becoming financially independent.

His career over the years has taken some interesting twists and turns, having experienced the obligatory loss as well as massive success.

In the early 1990’s  he was largely responsible for introducing Lifestyles a popular US Network Marketing health and nutrition giant to the United Kingdom as the lead distributor. In the pre launch he created a team of over 5000 people, trained and ready for the Companies opening.

The 1990’s were a busy time for Bernard, he became for a time a joint principal with a UK Network Marketing Company before moving on and  doing some consultancy work and serving on the MLMIA board in the United Kingdom.

In 1999 he moved overseas to develop a business as a distributor with a US corporation called Skybiz, the company  marketed a Website building product and business opportunity delivered over the Internet.

With rapid initial growth Bernard’s Distributor organization grew to over 380,000 people in over 35 Countries. Bernard was on one of those millionaire trips reaching the top 10 in the company, however a hard lesson was learnt that even the great can fall when the company was suddenly closed 2.5 years after it started under investigation by the US Authorities. It never recovered.

Bernard put that experience down as his finest as a distributor; he was living the dream, bought land and built a fabulous home in asia complete with high walls, swimming pool, garden with palm trees and office, all paid for by cash.

Again he reached the top team, this time though in a company at its peak with over 2.5 million distributors even though eventually it came to a sad and abrupt end.

Bernard once again found his enriching Network Marketing journey was to take some other interesting turns.

Living off the income made in the good years he next studied the Internet and set up his own software company. He even back then realized a shift was starting to take place in the way success was to be achieved in the future in network marketing, with much more emphasis on using the internet to recruit and build organizations.

Between 2003 to 2006 he was head hunted to fulfill a number of high profile corporate roles heading up the sales and marketing and distributor training for several Asia Pacific based Network Marketing Corporations including Amega Global and the Telecoms MLM, Ubifone.

In 2007 Bernard  reached a point of burnout so decided to take a well needed break from Network Marketing, yet continued to stay up to date with the Industry goings on.

The last decade has been an interesting time also, with lots going on with Bernard and he will be happy to share details of this period in further dialogue.

Although Bernard is based in Europe, his knowledge and experience of Network Marketing Internationally is extensive.

As Bernard says “Many Companies do not understand, that to do business Internationally often requires a different approach and model to what is required say in their home markets, this lack of understanding means many companies fail massively as they attempt to go global”.

Bernard has the gut instinct of experience to help Companies succeed who are looking to expand Internationally.

Today Network Marketing in 2017 is alive and well, and growing rapidly. There is a whole new generation getting into the Industry, realizing ‘Intrepreneurship’ is in fashion (Being a Entrepreneur within a structured organisation such as a Network Marketing Company).

Bernard says “The future vision of a thriving and successful Network Marketing Industry, will be less hype, less talk of making millionaires, more honesty, and more helping real people advance their lives to a more successful state then they are now. This is the future for a modern effective Industry”.

Bernard is available to listen, advise, consult or collaborate and will consider any interesting project that further his vision of a more ethically behaving Network Marketing Industry.
