Empowering Success Dreams
Posted by David Wood and David Sharpe on 04/18/2014 Reblogged By **Alecia Stringer**
This is an important announcement, and figured - to do it right, we need a message from both Dave Sharpe and myself.
So rather than a long story, or my normal ramblings - I figured I’d get right into it with the message from Sharpe, and come back and share my thoughts on it.
Here we go:
————————Personal message from David Sharpe—————————
As many of you know from my recent public announcement, I have Hepatitis-C. The virus levels in my body are high enough to be taken very seriously, and in order to treat my illness and heal my body I need to dedicate myself to proper rest, both mentally and physically as well everything else that comes along with this type of medical treatment.
As I said in my last public announcement, the good news is, I can beat it. The chances of being completely cured are good. However, I have to sacrifice certain things in order to give my recovery the attention it needs. For this reason, I’ve made the decision to step down as co-founder of Empower Network.
The most common question I’ve gotten from people is “why don’t you just take a few months off and come back when you’re all healed up?”. I considered that. However, as a fellow over-achieving, action taking, hustling, roll-your-sleeves-up and get-r-done kind of person – you can probably understand – there is no “medium speed” for me. I’m either “all in” or ”all out”.
Right now my life is depending on my self-honesty, and my attention needs to be 100% focused on my health.
The company has never been stronger. The infrastructure is solid, because we’ve worked very hard the last 2.5 years to build it that way. Dave Wood and CEO Jonathan Cronstedt are fully capable of leading this company into the next phase of growth. With that, I’m confident my departure will in no way cause any issue with the company continuing to grow on the path it’s been on since it launched.
Before I go, I wanted to publically thank a few people...
Erin, my fiancé – You’re the heart behind the heart of David Sharpe. You and our daughter, Bailee are the reason I do everything I do and I love you with all my heart.
Dave Wood - Your heart is in it for the people – that’s a fact. You’re a true leader and a bold game-changer in this profession. I respect your vision, heart and perseverance. Working with you has been one hell of a ride, and I wouldn’t trade the experience for the world. We’ve done things together no one thought were even possible (let alone from a couple of ex-homeless outcasts working on cluttered desktops with nothing but a dream and a tenacious drive to change people’s lives). Thank you so much for supporting me with all your heart through this challenging time in my life.
Jonathan Cronsted - From the first time I spent the day with you I knew you were one of the smartest guys I’d ever met. What I didn’t know was how much you loved your wife, Nicole, how hard you were willing to work for something you believed in, and the length at which you were willing to go to get the job done. In the short time you’ve been with Empower, I’ve learned a ton from you, but what I’ve learned more than anything - is Empower Network is lucky to have ya. When you came in, our business had some “cancer”...and you were the “chemo”. Thank you for reminding me what it means to be a true professional.
The Corporate Staff - You’re the true unsung heroes at Empower. The ones who wake up early and come to work with a smile on your faces regardless of what’s going on in your personal lives and you serve people with all of your heart. Each one of you make up a team who is willing and eager to do things most modern gladiators would cry about...and you thrive in one of the most high-demand environments someone could work in. That makes you worthy of a major “shout out”. I appreciate you. Empower Network wouldn’t be Empower Network without you.
The leaders, who have been here since the beginning - Words can’t express how much your love and support means to me through this difficult time. It has been a pleasure to “lock arms” with you over the last few years. You are without a doubt the most talented and passionate group of leaders I’ve ever worked with, and you’ve all changed my life in one way or another. Thank you for your love and loyalty.
The new and up-and-coming leadership of Empower Network - I want you to recognize something here. When Dave and I started this company several years ago the goal has been to empower people. To help them find freedom and empower them to build a business, and have a life.
Right now, I’m in a position that I personally need that freedom. I need to be able to focus on my saving my life and because of the heart and passion of the vision, and the level of leadership in this company, I’m able to step down and focus on my health.
I want you to know that anything...anything...is possible here. Whatever your dream is…whatever your goal is… whatever you want to do with your life…you can be empowered to do it.
So dream. Dream big! And work your ass off like your life depends on that dream. You never know - one day it might.
I love you all. It’s YOUR time.
~ David Sharpe
————————Personal message from David Wood—————————
A couple of things I wanted to say:
Dave - love ya brother. I’ve had a lot of fun over the last couple of years. Starting this off from a hand shake over a worn out, messy table in my old home in Portolon, Costa Rica - we’ve grown this company to 300,000 customers, and over $100 million in sales in a little over 2 years, creating 11 million dollar earners — and a new one popping every month or so these days.
Freakishly awesome, if you ask me. Really though - it’s just the start.
I’m just here to support you man. I wanted to say:
I love you.
And we’re all here to bless you. Get better.
You know, when I had the idea this company - it wasn’t for myself. I was already making more money than I even really cared for. I started it to help other people live their dreams, break through the barriers that hold them back, and step into a new and beautiful future.
In that process, I’ve seen amazing things — that honestly, blow my mind.
With you, to me this is a fulfillment of my dream, because even though I’ve loved working with you — Empower Network has now Empowered you to do something that you may have never been able to do without it…
… to take the time, energy, and money required to save your life, and step into a new and beautiful future.
I love you man. Thank you for being a part of my life.
To Empower Network:
We both wanted you to know that the vision is here to stay, grow, and prosper. I’m here. The leadership all has known about this for a time - and is more unified than ever. The corporate leadership is unified, behind the message - with a bigger vision than ever.
I love you guys.
My dream - is to help you live yours. To help you create something you’ve never been able to create. To build the richest team - in the world, and the most transformational - and powerful.
It’s my request that you send love, prayers, and good energy towards Dave. He’s been (and will continue to be) one of my best friends in the world.
The most beautiful thing in life - and what we all need from each other, is love unconditional. Not measured. Not based on rules. Love because our hearts are built to give.
Empower Network is here to Empower you. It is here to Empower our leaders. It is here to Empower the people who work for the company - the corporate leadership from our CEO, Jonathan Cronstedt, all the way down to the janitor who cleans the offices.
EVERYONE matters here.
They are all important.
David Sharpe played a powerful, important role in my life, and I’m thankful.
I wanted ALL of you to know this is all on good terms, with positive energy, with David Sharpe and I having an intention to continue lifting each other up, lifting you up, and lifting up the people around us.
Give him a shout out in the comments, and congratulate him on facing something that
I wanted to thank YOU for being a part of my dream.
I wanted to thank YOU for letting me be a part of yours.
Whether that’s to live on a beach, get rich, or just…
…be able to save your own life - I am here, we are here - only to lift you up.
Dave - love ya brother.
Thank you for being who you are.
P.S. Listen to the announcement call in this post - and thanks for being awesome. I’m looking forward to taking this vision, along with the leadership council, the up and coming leadership — and YOU — to a whole new level, together. You rock.
P.P.S. Some of our leaders wanted to share personal thoughts with you and Dave:
"David Sharpe is one of the most loving, generous, fiercely loyal and on-purpose people we’ve ever met. It would be impossible to overstate the impact he’s had on our business . . .but also on our family. (The first thing our 7-year-old son wants to know when we get to an event is “Where’s Sharpe?!”)
"David, you’ve got our support and we’re looking forward to seeing you overcome this challenge just like you’ve overcome so many in the past! Thanks for being who you are! We love you."
~ Tony & Jessica Rush, Will, Pate and Easton
"Our best friends in life, are those who we feel our best when we're around.
David Sharpe has been one of those people not just for me, but for thousandsof our family of friends & business partners. Regardless of where Dave goes orwhat he does in the future, we will always remember what he's done for us andappreciate the friendship we've shared over the years."
~ Aaron Rashkin
"Thank you David Sharpe for your contributions. I love you for how you have changed the industry... and we at the Tam family and our team love you."
~ Lawrence Tam
"From the start of Empower Network, David Sharpe brought the "urban" energy, the realness of life to the EN community and the heart of the person who wasn't perfect to the table. I did not know Sharpe at the inception of the company, as David Wood was my friend and colleague for a couple years prior, but ironically it was him who stopped me in that Orlando hotel hallway telling me how "Sharpe" (no pun on words) he thought I was and how he wanted to share something with me.
"Thank God I listened!
"As time went on we got to know each other, shared laughs and tears, traveled to many places, grew together, watched a company we both love soar, witnessed people progress personally and financially and now I have to accept that Dave has too been EMPOWERED to face and confront healing and the process that comes with it.
"As I share on behalf of my organization and maybe many others inside our EN community, I just want to publicly express my support, my undying love and JOY for you Dave!
"Who you are has changed my life and that of many others. Know that we love you brother, we love Erin and appreciate her for being part of your life, and we def love Bailee!!
"Thank you for your imprint on Empower Network. I will continue to carry the lighted torch of FREEDOM amongst this Army of Badasses we still consider you the General of.
We will make you proud, we will prevail..we WILL Empower the world to be better people!"
~ Tracey Walker
"Dave Sharpe, our heart goes out to you man…
"...thank you for your HEART
"...thank you for your VISION
"...thank you for your ENERGY
"...thank you for your SOUL
"...that you POURED into Empower and THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of people from all walks of life!
"You changed OUR life and lives of many people for the BETTER!
"Lets look at this as small obstacle that I’m sure you gonna overcome very SOON.
"We are here for you man. We support you.
"EMPOWER is not going anywhere, we are not going anywhere.
"You ROCK BROTHER!"
~ Alex and Anna Zubarev
"It's rare to have the opportunity in one's career to see servant based leadership personified, and rarer still to see it exemplified through action. Dave Wood and Dave Sharpe put the affiliates first in all they do, and it's an honor to serve in continuing the vision that they've started. Our corporate team has never been more prepared, more purposeful, and more powerful...and we're here to support you."
~ Jonathan "JCron" Cronstedt, CEO
UPDATE: I got a message on Facebook that ‘the pink elephant in the room’ was -- did Sharpe get bought out? How does he step down? Is there a new Co-owner? I thought it was a good point, and want to make sure that you have the right information, coming from us. Sharpe approached us about the seriousness of his health issues and that he needed to step down from ownership of the company. We talked through different ideas for several weeks, and then agreed that the company would buy his shares at an undisclosed price. The deal was made with everyone’s best interests at heart. The company will still be ran by David Wood, the Executive team, and the Mastermind Council --- there are no outside or conflicting interests involved.

I'm not going to be the one to bring the bad news, but we have all known and missed David Sharpe when he does not share his voice around the community.
We know his heart is all in and focused on where it needs it most.
Many of us know that you have to take care of yourself first before you can give to others, and that is exactly what David Sharpe is doing here. I see him making a full recovery and coming back to make more huge impacts than he ever has before.
That is tough to beat, because he has proven his IMPACT on this community!
Share the love and keep reblogging love!
True heartfelt love,
"Empowering Success Dreams"

To Success Dreams,
YES! You Can Earn More, Work Less, and Enjoy Life…
Whether you do business only in your local geographic area or around the world over the Internet, I can help you reach your online goals quicker and easier than any other method.
You will create better products, generate more traffic, and make more sales on your websites, by email, or in person.

When you find a leader that knows how to brand themselves online and presented as an authority, it makes it easier for you to position yourself. I’ve worked with leaders that only know how to brand their company, and they start all over when the company fumbles. To truly brand themselves, it means that they are generating their own list of prospects, not the companies. They also know how to target a person’s problem and be able to solve it instead of always talking about the company, products or whatever for you to buy. When you come from a place that you are presented as an authority figure and expert, then you are in a position to allow the prospects to be open to learn how they can get their problem solved.
Experienced coaches that know the network marketing industry, know what companies are trending, and how to be presented against other leaders. There are a couple of sites online that network marketers reference daily as the information that will give them an overview of what is happening in the industry.
Visit Npros.com and mlmrankings.com to get the latest information on a network marketing company. Subscribe and get the latest information to help you in your marketing and prospecting efforts as well.
When people think of funnels, they are really not clear of what you mean online. To understand from a beginner’s perspective, is how you collect an email from a potential client. This can be in many different ways, but clearly, you are getting their email address to follow up with them in the future. So there are many different structures you can build online to create a website page to simply the only purpose is to collect their email.
Visit 2asuccessdream.com to see an example. (Hint: see what is on the other side.)
Then you have a new funnel from once you collect your email to your follow up series, and once they are a buyer in your business to get them to buy again to more levels. So I keep learning from one of the masterful funnel creators to create a high ROI (return on investment) for your business. Look at the 10 steps below on how to create a high ROI in your business.
Knows how to leverage and sift to find qualified prospects. There are so many different strategies that you can get traffic from different sources online, that there is a new product inside Empower Network that is called Internet Traffic Formula. This goes through the ways to capture emails along with different traffic getting strategies to collect targeted prospects for your business online. It really doesn’t matter what niche or industry you are in as these methods are applied to them all. Currently you can find more information HERE when it will be released.
All the top leaders in the industry of network marketing will say hands down that they spend 80 percent of their time on themselves. They read books for at least 30 minutes a day and listen to empowering audios for at least 30 minutes a day.
Share what you are currently reading and listening to today!
I highly recommend that you get inside the Inner Circle of Empower Network, as it shares the leaders in the industry of how they break through their business to success. It has literally saved people’s lives listening to these audios everyday. Well worth investing in yourself to get high quality audios you can refer to daily. Get more information of what is inside the audios HERE.
A good coach knows the Recruiting myths:
Do you have to be friends?
No, your in business. You may do things totally different and you do not have to be close friends. You do have to help them solve their problems. It doesn’t mean you have to be friends with everyone!
Bring on the value!
What does that mean?
Look, if you can help someone with their problem, you just shared a solution of value. Get the real answers and move in the direction that is going to take action.
What do I do to make money in network marketing?
Bring on the leadership!
We do not want to hand hold or baby your downline. They need to know what to do to take action in their own business. That is why many leaders will offer incentives to join them in a co-op to do advertising together.
Why should anyone buy from you? What’s your UNIQUE value proposition?
Most people in this industry will start to show you what level of commitment are you at? Is your why so strong that it makes you cry?
What Are Your Strengths & Weaknesses? What parts are you struggling with? Identify them and be aware so you can work on fixing them in a more effective manner to bring in the highest ROI.
Where do you get your ROI from?

Do You Even Know Your ROI?
