    I really think that is a good idea. We tend to socialize with people of like interests but it does make since to expand to people that CanDo so to speak what we can not.

  2. Ismael says:

    I found the video info to be down to earth and real. I am making a list myself I call My MasterMind Group. I am slowly but surely entering into this area of trusting other people as well as delegating part of my work load.

    Thanks for refreshing my way of thinking from another perspective! Keep it flowing!

  3. Dottie and I try to get around the right people. Associate with positive, goal-oriented, people who encourage and inspire us.

  4. Ray says:

    Thank you. The video is thought provoking. Good information. Good advice. It makes sense.
    Thanks for producing it.

  5. Ken Curran says:

    I look forward to this post every week because it gives me good focus and great direction in developing my business and myself.

  6. Lois Amacher says:

    Great subject, Anthony! That’s something I need to learn to do because I get so overwhelmed trying to do too many things at once and always run out of time and then the whole project gets delayed. I’m definitely going to remember this good advice and begin to implement networking.

  7. Hello Anthony,

    This is a great reminder that we all need other’s talents to help us use
    our own talent. Thank you!

  8. Luke Pham says:

    Thank you Anthony

    Your idea is good since “birds of a feather flock together” we should talk or learn from each other that have same interest

  9. Alicia says:

    You’r right, of course. Leverage the strength and talents of those around you!

  10. Good information!


  11. DeWayne Bridges says:

    The concept of connecting and joining with people that compliment and add to your personal skill sets makes a lot of sense. The more I find out about this business the more I realize that I don’t know and that I need to join with other people who are more knowledgable and skilled than myself in various areas.

  12. Good stuff to know & be reminded of.I can’t do it all, I don’t know it all but I certainly can step aside & let others do what I can not.I like the thought of building a team of people to help me.I guess I have some trust issues yet.usually afraid that they wont do it right or will mess something up.My own issue to get over.I had a group design a website for me recently & when I went in to read the information.It was all sloppy & just not said the way I would of said it.Makes me feel like wow what is this person saying?and its my site.

  13. Stacey says:

    Perfect message for me today! I was sitting here trying to figure out how to begin building my website and then you say find someone to do it. I don’t have to do it myself! Thanks, Anthony.

  14. Maurice Tuck says:

    Hello Anthony,

    Just want to say thanks for the continued flow of great information you send to those of us trying to get started. I have to say personally that I am very grateful to have the opportunity to learn what I am learning from you. When you get the chance, thank your Mom & Dad for raising you the way they did.


  15. Torrance says:

    I like the idea you put forth.

  16. Hi Anthony,
    This is a wonderful concept on building one’s business that I have not always fully appreciated. I have tended to separate my associations of family from friends and a 3rd group of just business associates.. I have had close family that I correspond with frequently and distant family that I correspond with less frequently. I have had close friends and distant friends that I treat the same way and then loose track of my distant friends altogether. I have had close business associates & also those that are not close because I do not have to deal with them daily. Finally I loose track of them altogether. Had I stayed in contact with all of them, especially as soon as the internet & email made that much easier I would have a network today of people who know me personally in the 1000′s. How powerful would that be now that I am starting my internet business. I didn’t see it then but I do now.

    Thanks for your constant efforts to remind us of the basics in life as well as business. In spite of the time & contacts I have lost I will not be discouraged because I regard ‘right now’ as a great beginning to the rest of my life of business, friendships, & good living. Among my friends I am thankful to be able to count you Anthony. I’m sure you don’t remember me from just this reply but I was privileged to meet you at the seminar you held in Jackson the 1st of May when I handed you my copy of “The Hidden Millionaire” to sign. Thank You.

    I am Ranger Phillip

  17. Patricia Powell says:

    I do not have a website set up yet. Your videos are a tremendous help in learning how to do these things. Thank you for all of the instructions that you give. Patricia.


  18. Steve S says:

    I’m just starting all this type of stuff & these are some good ideas, thanks.

  19. Rose Henigin says:

    My first time in hearing you speak and it does make much sense in reaching out to others for their valuable opinions and knowledge of what you need in reaching your goals. I’m interested in this venture to see where Imight go. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to hear this video.

  20. As usual Anthony Your up there with the best.

  21. Benzz says:

    Indeed, constantly building a network of professionals, friends is always a plus . . . .

  22. Norma says:

    Hi Anthony, I really like this advice about building your network. I will be looking for people that can help me in the future. Thank you for everything. NG

  23. Muriel says:

    What you are suggesting sounds good. I have to admit that I am one of those people who if I want something done – I usually do it myself! I need to trust that other people can do the things that I can’t and delegate the tasks! Thanks again!

  24. Sally and Bill says:

    Anthony you are so right ! Building a supportive network for your life and business is very important. Thank you for all of your advice and sharing your knowledge.

  25. Bessie Young says:

    I really enjoyed the video, very informative. The information you gave about surround yourself with people who can help you and help you grow.

  26. AYSHA BURNETT says:

    Anthony, i am enjoying every lesson from you.

  27. Yevonne says:

    Good advise. We have to realize we can’t do everything. It makes better business sense to network and have those people you can rely on when you need them. Thanks!

  28. The more I watch your videos, the more I develop more interest in joing your team.

  29. I agree that if you do want to have a great business model you must reach out to people who can help you achieve this. You need to be able to clearly explain what you are looking for and then bounce these ideas of of someone who has been doing what you need for years. Two heads are always better than one, as the saying goes. It’s true and can always benifit someone.

  30. Brian says:

    just listening to this video all the things you said is extremely true because some of things like learning off of other people has happened to me all my life, now I am trying to learn about affiliate so thank you about all your information in all of the book it has been very useful.

  31. absolutely true in all facets of life .In order to have a successful business you must have very qualified people as part of you team

  32. Lyle says:

    Hey Anthony. I wanted to thank you for all of the help you have given us with this series. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for writing sales copy. We just purchased a video studio for doing live broadcast, and I could really use some help with the script. Thank you!

    Lyle R. Bakke

  33. The connection #115 is what I am faced with right now. I currently exploring many avenues, to build,expand,explore options. I am also testing ideas as to what works best for me, what do not work at all for what ever the reason.

    Implementing many of the strategy Anthony Morrison spoke about do works. As you begin to explore your options, learn services,products,training taking small steps daily creates great success. Thank you Anthony for your time.A valuable service offer to everyone.

  34. Joyce Fisher says:

    Thanks for the info about building connections. I wish that I had seen the preceding videos as I’m sure I could learn so much. I’ll be watching for the next one.

  35. sandra says:

    Every week you brought up some great pointers. It’s so real one just need to put on our to do list and set our goals and work hard to accomplish some things in life thank you.

  36. Thomas Longerbone says:

    I agree. I have kept in touch with people who are good at things I can’t do.
    I do need to expand my network for internet marketing as this is a new field for me.

  37. Faye says:

    Thank you Anthony. Makes a lot of sense. I have always been told that great men/women are those who surround themselves with people who do what they cannot do for themselves. You just said the exact same thing in different words. Again I say thank you!

  38. Cheryl Harrington says:

    I am glad you bought this up. I am trying to find people and can trust and that share the same ideas and goals like me. People that have that second insight about building your dreams and making it real. I need people that are in this type of business and no nay sayers but encouagers and people that have dreams and goals!!!

  39. Robert Walker says:

    I could sure use some help to just clue me in to where the tools I need are located. I also need help with things that require special skills. Since funds are short right now, I will just have to learn those skills myself, and use the skilled person later on. Thanks, Anthony, for addressing these issues.

  40. Because of my individual program to create a passive income for me and my wifeI. In a similar manner I seek out proven individuals with passive income systems

  41. mikey mohney says:

    Thanks once again Anthony!!!!

  42. I really think that is a good idea. We tend to socialize with people of like interests but it does make since to expand to people that CanDo so to speak what we can not.

  43. Joseph Blanco says:

    This is such an eye opener for everyone that makes ‘excuses’ to be successful, like “oh I do not know this, I do not know that, etc.” This is where building networks comes in. You are right that in order to be successful you need to have people that are really good into something that you are not. I have a bad taste when it comes to graphics designing and proper color combination when making blogs or websites. But I have friend of 12 years (since high school) that is really good in making the right combination of colors. So, every time I make a website she is there all the way making sure that I have the right color effect and graphics on my website and that helps it converts well.

  44. Gordon says:

    Once again, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Developing a core of individuals with talents and skills is important in any business, ESPECIALLY if those are weak areas within yourself! I do look forward to someday actually meeting you, maybe next time I get to Mississippi….

  45. Great advice. No one can do everything nor does anyone want to.

  46. Hey Anthony This is exactly what I am doing with my businesses. Thank you so much for your expertise.

  47. Great advice, we tend to surround ourselves with people we like alot. Not nessearily with people that can help us a great deal. Thank you, Anthony.

  48. Not sure what is going on here, but the last three or four connections–don’t connect but, I did see them on Youtube late last night and early morning. Good job and thanks again Anthony. May the force of “success” be with us all.

  49. King Richard says:

    Anthony u are a true inspiration to all generations. I’m 40 yrs old and just learning how to text. Wish I could fugue how to set up a business on you tube. Lol Im still going back to the apple store and they show me everything. I’ve learned a lot by listening to you. Thanks for the free input it goes a Lon long way. A mind is a terrible thing to waste and knowledge is power.

  50. Forence Homes says:

    I use you suggestion in my life. By finding people that are great in things that I am not, I learn from them by asking questions and watching them in their talents. That gives each of us new knowledge making both of us better.

  51. dennis says:


  52. Dennis says:

    Great advice thank you

  53. Sheldon martin says:

    I did like this video. I understand what you said in the video and I will plan on using it in the future.

  54. William says:

    That is a great recommendation. We all need people around us, to help us succeed.

  55. Donna Moore says:

    It is good to have the names like Elance where we can go to get help with things we are not good at.

    With a limited budget there are sources we can afford that you mention.

    Thank you.

  56. hed says:

    Hey Anthony,
    Is it possible to mail you?

  57. Theo says:

    This is right one. We all need to connect with those that can help us become successful first. Everything else in secondary to building a powerful social network. Thanks for the words of encouragement

  58. Patrick Miller says:

    This is so obvious that it’s easy to overlook! We tend to get bogged down in the details, trying to do everything ourselves. We need to stop and think where we could use some help and go find someone who can do it – and help alleviate the unemployment problem, at least a little bit!

  59. Cynthia A. Chisum says:

    I sure hope you play this later in the week my audio should be back I hope

    by then. I started to watch it any way, I’m definitely no lip reader. I’ll be

    waiting to hear, “Build your network” This is really a topic that I really need

    allot of work on. I’ve been to shy for much too long. As always thank you!

  60. Georgette says:

    Thanks for your great knowledge & insight Anthony. Thank you so much for sharing with us all.

  61. Anthony it seems like there isn’t a time your’re speaking and I can totally relate to the subject in most cases. I have gotten to a place where I have a website, put some videos on it, have some affiliate ads there, and lots of content. I have been following through the Success with Anthony trainings and I am now ready to put an Aweber form on my site to capture peoples emails and start building my list. I wasn’t sure how to do this and have mulled around the Aweber trainings and when you mentioned Elance as one way I could develop a relationship with someone who is already very qualified in using the form builder on Aweber. OK, light went off…again! LOL Thanks for all you do to help each of us along this journey. Talk to you soon and look forward to seeing you again next Success Connection.

  64. Leitha Frye says:

    Having a team of people who you can turn to when you need help is invaluable. .Reliable, trustworthy, people with SKILLS, is a great find. As always, Thanks for all you do!

I pray to earn 25% of what you earn to help my family!! Please keep teaching!!!!!

  67. bob pascoe says:

    your so right about having others strengths pull you through in your weaknesses and make you look good. that is great networking, but you have to find these people and they can be everyday people that we come in contact with. they do not necessarily have to be the somebody great to network with, they can your mom, son, relative or neighbro.

  68. Great, I love it, great advice

  69. Tjep Marku says:

    Thank you again, Anthony. It is true. networking is really important. I feel networking is one of necessary element in whatever I am doing.

  70. nick garner says:

    thanks anthony for that bit of info 2 brains are better than one and 10 are even better help people help you help them

  71. Hello Anthony

    This advice goes to the top of the list, there are to many aspects of this business for me to do them sufficently.

  72. Dianne Yeager says:

    I think the concept of using ‘reliable” resources including people is key to building a successful network. This piggybacks on your previous success connection discussions to name a few; such as trusting in yourself and thinking outside the box.

  73. jean martin says:

    Thanks Anthony for the great advice of surrounding yourself with people who have expertise in areas that you don’t. I haven’t been able to do this yet, but I know now that I must in order to avoid frustration. Thanks again for the wonderful advice.

  74. frank senner says:

    more good informatiom. thank you!

  75. David Moore says:

    Thanks for sharing your network with us all. Its very interesting and you are a prime example of Success anthony. I appreciate the good advice.

  76. Janice says:

    Hi Anthony,
    Thanks so much for all your wonderful teaching and insight – this is a great idea – to build networks with people who are expert, at what we’re not so good at – I love meeting and networking with people! Looking forward to your next lesson – Janice

  77. Shirley G-K says:

    Hey Anthony, because I truly suck at the many skills needed to launch my internet business I will be on a “talent” hunt for the right people. I already lined up a co-worker to meet with me next week to help me navigate FB. (Yes, I have avoided all social media until now.) I think the hardest part for me is to delegate tasks to others. Your words are changing my mindset. Thanks again for keeping it real.

  78. angelica says:

    Hi Anthony – this is just a continuation on the above comment: Pardon me I hit the wrong key…Oops!!!

    without considering that I should be more acceptance eventhough that person may not be personable but has a great talent and skill. Therefore, we should not limit our capacity to interconnect on the basis of one or two categories or we might miss some piece of the puzzle. And I’ve learned to recognized the benefit of it…Anyway – you have made a very significant point that we should all greatly considered…Wonderful job.

    Thank you and God Bless,


  79. Libby Sosa says:

    Good point, I’ll try oncemore w/feeing.

  80. Rita Nealy says:

    Anthony, thank you for your desire to help the rest of us to be successful. With our state of economy there are more of us going into business like never before. Some of us are taking the leap and stepping away from our regular jobs and stepping out on faith. Then there are some of us who are working a regualr job while building our own business. It is good to be able to tap into people like you who don’t mind sharing how to be successful without us making mistakes that you all already made. Thanks again and I pray much success for you.

  81. Deppie Tinny Kekatos says:

    Hi Anthony,

    I think building a network is a great idea. It is always good to be involved with people and be sociable because it can lead to fantastic things. I am still trying to get my feet off the ground but my ads do not seem to do much for me. I will try again and again until I make it.
    You are my inspiration, week after week. Thanks Anthony!!

  82. shannan says:

    Enjoyed, as usual, Thanks!

  83. Anthony, We like watching your videos that you put out. Your videos gets us even more motivated and gives us more knowledge every time we watch them. And we learn more about it to where we can reach our goals in life. When you had said in the book that you help the kids that wont have nothing on christmas. That you helped them in alot of ways that every body needs to help every body out no matter of what it may be. Our business isn’t just to help us but also helping out others when they are down as while is to use the knowledge that you have gave to us. To where it will help us and to where we help others because that is the type of people that we are. We like to help people out no matter of what it may be. And why I like helping other people is because that will make it to where I sleep better at night knowing that I did something good for some one else and not just myself or my family. That is why give up is not one of our words. Our passion is to help other people. And this is our life business. THANK YOU ANTHONY MORRISON FOR SHOWING US THE WAY. And thank you for everything and keep the good videos going. And your teaching. Thank you and have a good day and night.

    -Spencer & Patty-

  84. tommy pumphrey says:

    there is not doubt about it. After my medical issue and not being able to do Therapy anymore I knew I had to learn something. So I bought your books, working now with coaching cause I had not Idea what I was doing and am slowing learning and hope in a year or two be doing well enough I wont worry about Physical therapy anymore.
    Be Blessed

  85. Hello Antony:
    You are right in what you spoke in Success Connection #115. It is an age-old principle that when you associate with people who have a positive attitude towards life and business, you get inspired and learn from them. Whether you end up building a network of friends is immaterial – the very connection alone will result in positive outcome and success

  86. Surround yourself with people that are good at things you are bad at WOW!! Great point. Meet people that are good at stuff and keep them make them a part of your network. I love it A. great tips

  87. AnnMatthew says:

    Wonderful advice and the reminder that successful people find successful,
    Talented people to team up with and build a network.
    Just the admission to yourself that you need a team will make you more successful. The next step is finding those talented people, and beginning your own network. With the economy the way it is, each business you choose to do business with will be part of your network, and eventually you may be able to employ talented people as well in your business, as a part of your own chosen network. We work together to build success.
    Thanks again.

  88. Craig says:

    Hey Anthony very informative once again, but I have come to get use to you being like that. When I started in the game I was so glad that I had your support, because without it I think I would be where I am today with this business as to knowledge wise. I’m just starting to build my network and have some very good marketers onside at the moment including yourself. Once again thanks for the video and keep them coming.

  89. juan vazquez says:

    hi, Im Juan and this is a really good advice, i heard it from my soccer coach few years ago, also you seem pretty convincing and that’s what people need so they can believe in themselves.
    also i wanna buy your program but i cant because i dont have money but if i have or if i win, the first thing im gonna do is im gonna buy your program and thanks for the advice

  90. Hi A.M.
    i tell hold u let know.M.Mx.D.F.

  91. Carrol says:

    Great thoughts…things we should all be thinking about!

  92. Bernice Adams says:

    Thanks again for all your help

  93. John Galik says:

    Great advice. It has been a bumbpy road and I have found support and direction through my family and friends.

  94. Arlene says:

    Good point!

  95. Ipe Da Silva says:

    That’s a great idea. Thank’s Anthony!

  96. Beverly Paff says:

    Words of wisdom. as found in the book of Proverbs in the bible.

  97. Chris Kalwa says:

    Excellent advice, Anthony. As an aspiring writer, I need help from experts who can help me with editing, graphics, illustrations, and marketing & promotion to make my book a successful seller. With this professional input on important tasks I’m not good at doing myself, it makes my job more manageable. Thank you for this reminder.

  98. Astre says:

    Building a network is so important you touched on some great things Anthony.

  99. It is a good idea to build a network so you can expand your horizons and at the same time will help your business big time.

  100. Starmist says:

    It’s good to remember we don’t have to be alone in our business, when we use other people to help us with our business we also help them grow their business and that makes me feel better just knowing I helped someone else too.
