Thank you so much MLSP, for making me Member of The Month, it truly is a humbling honor. My name is Ron Gelok III and I’ve been an MLSP member/student since 2009, What’s up!? Would Love to Meet you! Things I do and identify with are skateboarding, traveling, being an entrepreneur, a man of Faith, MLM coach, extreme sports enthusiast and a Professional Internet/Network Marketer!
My story is not a typical one, and I doubt you’ve heard this before…
I got started in Network Marketing in 2009 after my Real Estate career took a turn for the worse and college wasn’t really working out for me. I needed a way to replace my income and find something that was a lot less stressful, low overhead, and that I could do part time while I was finishing school. I was in college at the time and my Real Estate business tanked and… well… shortly after I went broke…

After reaching out to my friend and former real estate competitor, Ray Higdon, I knew network marketing and MLSP was the way for me to go. I would always listen to my mentors Jim Rohn, Darren Hardy, Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar, the Bible, Larry Thompson, George Zalucki, John Maxwell and many others to stay positive and motivated to try something new and keep going when life kicks you down. Even with all that motivation, and empowering belief I struggled for awhile. I still knew there was a better way to build my business. I don’t know about you but I was so tired of the Starbucks meetings, Panera bread lunches, and chasing, begging, and bugging while presenting 5+ times a week for home parties, restaurants or hotel meetings! I wasn’t taking all the right actions, but I was failing forward.
I struggled for months and months and months failing forward recruiting friends and family and calling every business card I’ve ever collected, trying to build rapport with people I could barely remember from high school…man was I being phony and feeling terrible and getting burnt out. I was finally in the NFL (No Friends Left club) and got depressed.
Then I remembered I had signed up for MLSP and had access to an infinite supply of training on lead generation, recruiting & prospecting, free leads, marketing, mindset, a supportive & interactive community, and websites already made for me that I could use right now! I realized it was time! I now had everything a home business professional could ever possibly need! So I drew my line in the sand and dove in deep just learning for a long time and using the recruiting, prospecting and marketing training to build my MLM business.
In 2012 I went full time briefly in a company that later merged into another one. I used the MLSP trainings and websites to recruit some big players and I was a top producer, won incentive trips, presented company trainings, and even sponsored the #1 income earner in all of Canada. But after the merger, I lost a lot of income, made some poor life choices, lost motivation, dropped out of school, got depressed, anxious, left the industry briefly and got a job selling furniture, and then when I couldn’t stand my cubicle and life anymore I moved to New Jersey and got a job making candy (which I still love to do around the holidays! You gotta be around happy loving people or you’ll go crazy lol) I couldn’t believe I got beaten down again so soon.
So after a 2nd time climbing to the top and failing, once in real estate & once in network marketing I knew I had to take FULL responsibility for my success as well as my failures, it was NOT the company, NOT my sponsor, but just ME and the Big Man Upstairs. Then I remembered AGAIN I still had MLSP! I dove in again, and made my own custom campaign for my MLM and I took off again like a horse at the starting gate! Cool part is I just watched videos and trainings ☺
BIG Note: MLSP gave me a double comeback in Network Marketing!!! Don’t Believe It? Don’t read on…
It wasn’t until the end of 2013/beginning of 2014 again until I got out of my funk and started making a full time income in a different network marketing company. I decided to stop trying, just trust God, trust MLSP, and keep it simple and just do what the leaders in the MLSP community teach and use the simple easy systems to build my business exactly how its designed. Suspending any disbelief and skepticism I had, I chose to move forward despite the way I felt and circumstances at the time and I am really grateful and happy I did.
Using the MLSP system I’ve had a lot of Success!
- Been on the Top 15 leaderboard in primary company for production volume
- Have had 4 team members become top 10 company recruiters
- Placed in the Top 5 of 2 recent affiliate marketing contests
- Invited as an MLSP guest hangout speaker
- Started a thriving MLM coaching business
- Have over a dozen streams of positive cash flow income
- Receive daily Commissions, Sign Ups, and Leads
- Won Company Incentive Trips
- Host of Business, Bible, and Breakfast (search Facebook)
- Most importantly have my confidence back, life on track, means to create the life I want and follow my true passions of Empowering People To Prosper
I am Really thankful for God, my family’s support, some good friends down in Florida, and the MLSP community for the encouragement and support during a lot of those tougher times of my life. Without the people I have met through networking, MLSP, and my family I’d still be lost. Also big thanks to my coaching students who as they get better and reach higher leadership and success levels, forces me to climb higher as well, thank you mastermind clients!
If you hear anything in this post, read this:
“I’m just an ordinary guy who follows a simple system. I focus on helping and empowering others to succeed in our industry, I refuse to be defeated, I refuse to not be the best version of myself, and I simply keep persisting, keep trying, and most importantly just keep believing by taking daily action steps. I will persist until…That’s it, I will persist until…”
I love to laugh and help people daily. Thank you for reading my story and thank you MLSP for helping me to Empower others and create a life for myself that touches, moves, and inspires! God Bless You Guys!
Empowering You To Prosper!
