Joe Occhiogrosso is one of the most successful network marketing professionals in the world today. A converted life-long “pyramid scam” skeptic from New York City, he is one of the few people in network marketing history to build a seven-figure residual income in less than one year.
Joe graduated from Rutgers University at the age of 20 with degrees in Economics and Philosophy—and the “Mr. Rutgers” bodybuilding title. He immediately engaged on a ten-year wild ride on Wall Street, trading in the 24-hour global currency markets for major banks.
After the birth of his first child, he started tiring of the one-hour-plus commute, along with the stress of the 24-hour currency trading markets, and decided to start his own traditional business in the suburbs. Joe spent the next five years building a successful payroll and benefits company. He was bought out by a group of private investors, and then started a title insurance agency and grew it to one the best in his home state.
Along the way he had been approached with dozens of network marketing opportunities, but he never really gave the profession much serious thought. Finally, in 2009 he decided that network marketing was indeed a better way. He decided to go all in, and really become a student of the game. Now Joe has come full circle and spends most of his time training and coaching traditional business leaders on how to become network marketing professionals.
For Joe, success begins and ends with others. “At the end of the day, it’s not about rising above others or leaving them in your wake; it’s about how many people you bring along with you,” Joe said. “Ride your vision, give before you get, invest in yourself and others, and learn how to network.”
Joe lives in northern New Jersey with his wife Annmarie, and their three children. Joe enjoys spending time with his family, playing baseball, and serving on the fundraising committee for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. He also participates in his company’s annual mission trips to underdeveloped countries.
Frank Marone started in the network marketing business back in 2009 and is one of the few people in history to create 6-figure monthly income in less than one year. He started his career on Wall Street as a foreign currency broker and after 23 years decided to start his own brick and mortar business. Being from New York City, he always had a very skeptical opinion about network marketing but finally jumped in and became one of the industry’s top earners.
Frank received a full scholarship to play football as a wide receiver at Syracuse University and played with many future NFL Hall of Famers. As a former college athlete, health and wellness has always been an integral part of his life. He’s married with 2 children and recently became a grandfather. Frank’s goal is to help as many people ‘see the light’ and also become a professional network marketer.
