What's New
Letter From Hollywood Welcome Aboard Aug 1999

Author requests article critique


Here's an email letter from a guy named Marty Kincaid who lived in New Jersey. I never met this man but he was introduced to me by my friend Gregory Heard via the telephone. This was when I lived in Hollywood, Ca and was trying to make some money through MLM (Multi-Level Marketing sometimes referred to as network marketing. Most people do not make enough money fast enough in these so called businesses and they have a bad reputation among many wise people. I avoid them now but then I was seriously trying to find a legitimate venture to supplement my income.

This letter shows the frustration of trying to communicate with another network marketer named Howard Nadler. As I recall several of us at the time were looking into a flat rate long distance service. People at the time were paying a lot of money on their long distance phone bills and we thought this opportunity would be like grabbing a free stack of hotcakes on a cold winter morning in Denver. Unfortunately things never panned out as we hoped and a lot of time and energy was wasted on this. Like I said I avoid MLM. These are always popping up in the opportunity and income magazines and most just do not last very long. Amway was the first I got involved with around 1977 or 1978. The products were good but again few people made any money except married couples. I was a single college student but was recruited because I sold Electrolux Vacuum Cleaners door-to-door.

Wednesday August 25, 1999

Hi Carlton,

Thanks for the info. I have been extremely busy with the TeleFreedom USA opportunity. I have signed on 2 Major networkworkmarketers who had a
downline of 700 people in the DMI cell phone scam. They have built organizations of up to 22,000 people. One of these individuals has 30 years in sales and sales related endeavors. Both of these guys are leaders and are going to Texas to become partnered Area Directors.

I have been emailing Howard for days requesting his sponsor information. If he does not care to give it to me I am sure there is someone who would love to sponsor me. Would you tell Howard that I cannot and will not continue to wait for him? I don't know how I can make this any clearer to him.

I also have been working hard on finding a legititmate cell phone deal. IC&C is comning out with a beta test cell phone Sept 7. If this turns
out to be legit, my race car driver has a corporation that wants over 400,000 cell phones. I spoke with the driver's girlfriend for over 2 1/2 hours last nite. They are prepared to invite the President, Jonathan Roberts, to INDY race way show him the Coca Cola hospitality rooms we have available to us and give him a contract for 400,000 phones to hold until after the beta testing takes place.

Wish us luck, this could change the way I exist right now. I wouldn't mind flying into Indianapolis a few times a month to manage this corporate account if I was making millions would you?

You may want to get on the call at 10:00 AM your time today Weds Aug 25. I will forward you the notice on this, giving you the details. I have literally spent hundreds of hours investigating a flat rate cell phone deal. I do hope this is the real thing.

Carlton something is bound to break with all that is on my plate. God knows I am broke. The cash is somewhere in our futures and I hope much more than $800. If we had worked this hard and long in a JOB we would be financially set. Well, at least we would not be afraid that we will be eating out of garbage cans anytime soon. Hey, we are all alike, entrepreneurial spirits that can not follow mainstream America's idea of what is politically correct, a damn job! We will survive and become successful, all of us.

Hang in Carlton, I hope you get to do your acting full time. That is a gift and talent that should not go to waste. I know the feeling of becoming overwhelmed with life events that place your dreams and passions on the back burner. Remember, to always keep your hearts desires alive. Fan the flames of passion and you will find a life of exhilarating freedom.

Your day is coming Carlton. You and Gregory are very talented and creative men. You are good Christian men on a mission for Jesus. He will not forsake you, and I am sure you know deep within your soul.

Please somehow get to Howard. Is he going to work this TeleFreedom business, or just dabble? He seems not to care at all. Thanks, Carlton

With Warm Regards,
Marty Kincaid
