Eric Worre Eric Worre is a college dropout. He never even completed his first trimester when an injury dashed his hopes of playing big league football. Having no other dream or desire, he left college for the working world, and work he did. Eric had 18 different jobs before he was 22 years old.
He sold peanuts at the Metrodome, rented out boats, bussed and waited tables, washed dishes and cooked, even started his own tanning salon. Finally, reluctantly, he joined his father in his dad’s real estate partnership. Eric’s first year he made $45,000— and he only spent $60,000. He hadn’t saved a thing for taxes. He needed money. Badly.
Eric’s dad and his business partner were invited to a network marketing opportunity presentation about National Safety Associates (NSA) and they encouraged Eric to come along. At that meeting Eric overheard the man who was introducing them to the business tell his father, “Eric’s going to crush this thing. He’s going to beat us all!”
His first month in the business, Eric made $7500, $12,000 in his second month. And true to form, he spent every penny as soon as it came in. In his third month, Eric’s income plummeted to $1000. “I was lucky those first two months,” he said. “That third month showed me I was still just a $5/hr guy.”
But Eric hung-in and kept on keeping-on. Most importantly what he kept on was learning— learning the business from top to bottom. In his second and third years, Eric made a very respectable $90K and $110K. With his partner John Joyce, he also started a marketing-tools business leading with a recruiting video called “The Solution.” That was a $3 million business.
Then the company hit a brick wall. There was bad press on Inside Edition. It was ugly and sales stopped, everything stopped— his commissions, video sales, everything. Eric, along with everybody else, was forced to go looking for a new home.
After researching “tons of companies,” they found what they wanted with a security products company called Quorum International. As Eric tells it, he and his friends crossed all kinds of boundaries in recruiting for the new company.
Looking back, he’s not proud of that effort, and… it is what it was and it worked. When he joined the company Quorum was doing about $1 million a month in sales. By December of 1992 that figure had exploded to $14 million a month.
Eric became a top distributor and eventually accepted the position of President of Global Operations. He soon learned that the company ownership had no intention of establishing a long-term enterprise. When their unwillingness to change and “do the right thing” became clear, Eric resigned his position and walked away from the substantial income he’d
spent years building.
One of the things Eric was part of pioneering at Quorum was a private satellite system for the sales force featuring broadcasts of business education and training, opportunity presentations and eventually personal growth & development programming. In September of 1994 Eric and his partner co-founded The People’s Network (TPN), which eventually grew into a 24 hour a day personal development television network with more than 100,000 viewers.
Throughout all of his experience— from a low-level distributor then a little company owner and then a big-level distributor, a company president, CEO, of his own company— Eric realized he was good at some things and not good at others. What he was best at, where he was happiest and where he saw the lifestyle he valued most was being a top-level distributor in a company that was building for the long-term.
Today, that’s exactly the position Eric has achieved. He is a top producer with Agel Enterprises, earning an income of more than $1 million a year leading an international organization of more than 115,000 people in 45 countries around the world.
