Brig Hart is the ultimate network marketing success story.
Just about anyone who has been in our industry for any period of time knows who he is and what he brings to the table.
I’d like to begin by telling you a little bit about his background, so you can know where he came from and what he is all about.
- He was born in 1952
- He was the second of our children
- Born and raised in Florida
- His dad was an entrepreneur
- As a kid he was a big car fanatic
- As a teenager he was a surfer
- He spent two years in the Marines, 1970-71, but didn’t have to go to Vietnam
- He credits the Marines for teaching him discipline
- After the Marines (around 1973) he opened up his own business “Hart’s Surf Shop”
- He owned that business for five years before things got bad and he had to close the business
- Around 1978 or 1979 he was introduced to network marketing for the first time (Amway)
- He met his wife at an Amway meeting; they were married 4.5 months later
- He and his wife have three children
What I like most about Brig Hart is that he is humble and down to earth.
He is a very friendly guy with a great demeanor and great attitude.
Brig Hart Amway Story
He joined the Amway business sometime around 1978 or 1979.
At the height of his Amway venture, he and his wife, Lita, were Double Diamonds.
Prior to leaving Amway, they had an enormous down line consisting of tens of thousands of distributors.
They had three front-level diamonds and countless down line diamonds including Crown Ambassador Tim Foley.
Their up line Diamond was Bill Childers.
Some of their successful down line distributors included Steve and Annette Woods, Bo Short, and Ed and Rose Knickman.
Many of his successful down line have since been terminated by Amway.
Brig and Lita Hart filed a lawsuit against Amway and several of the kingpin distributors in 1997, claiming that they were “cut out” of the tools money.
This lawsuit was one of the most significant lawsuits in Amway’s history.
Some say that the lawsuit led to Amway changing its name to Quixtar.
I cannot verify that, but I do find it interesting.
The lawsuit regarded the tools business.
The Hart’s claimed there were no written contracts concerning tools.
Everything was based on a handshake and wink.
More importantly, Rule # 4 of the IBO contract was never enforced.
Instead, everything was the “good ole boy” system.
Brig Hart and Mona Vie
After leaving the Amway business, Brig and Lita Hart joined Mona Vie in 2005.
Mona Vie is a liquid nutrition multi-level marketing company that specializes in products made with the acai berry.
Initially he hired someone to research “liquid nutrition” companies for him.
They came up with four potential companies and ended up joining Mona Vie.
They rose to the top ranks in Mona Vie, and according to some online reports, they are the top earners in the entire MLM Industry.
That is no small feat.
To help his team succeed with Mona Vie, Brig Hart created the R3 Global system.
This is an educational platform that provides the training and motivation for his Mona Vie distributors.
They offer business support materials, business tools, clothing, accessories, seminars, CDs and other products to help his team build their business.
R3Global is similar to the Amway Motivational Organizations.
As of 2014, Brig and Lita Hart sold their Mona Vie business.
They are now co-founders of the Healthy Home Company, a network marketing company specializing in safe, toxic free products.

Brig Hart Secrets to Success
Next, I’d like to share five secrets about why Brig Hart is so successful in the network marketing industry.
After following his training for a couple of years, I’d like to share five things I really admire about Brig Hart that really make him “stand out” in the crowd.
I believe that these are five secrets that made him a top earner in our industry.
# 1 He’s a Visionary
Brig Hart is a visionary leader and network marketer.
He joined Mona Vie before it became popular.
In reality, he built Mona Vie from the ground up.
He understands the big picture and knows how to create an action plan that will lead him to his ultimate goal.
He handles the small details, but never lets that keep him from reaching his ultimate goal.
His “vision” is what sets him apart from most rank and file distributors.
He sees things before they exist.
Most importantly, he knows how to share his vision with others.
# 2 He’s a Master at Developing Leaders
When it comes to developing network marketing leaders, Brig Hart is one of the best in the industry.
He has the amazing ability to see the potential in people and develop that potential.
He does lots of one-on-one and group training to teach his team.
He also knows how to find leaders and get them to join his team.
He knows that it’s easier and faster to build a team if you are working with leaders.
Brig is a leader himself, so he naturally attracts other leaders to his group.
# 3 He Understands Marketing
I believe that “marketing” is the most important word in network marketing.
Businesses do not succeed because of their products and services.
Instead, a business thrives because of its ability to market, promote and sell its products and services.
Brig Hart is successful because he understands online and offline marketing.
He’s mastered attraction marketing and he knows how to stand out in the crowd.
People naturally want to join his team or buy from him because he is a leader, a great person, and master marketer.
Simply put, people know, like and trust Brig!
# 4 He Keeps Things Simple
Brig Hart keeps things simple.
When it comes to building a MLM Business, he’s an old school kind of guy.
He does lots of one-on-ones and home meetings.
He teaches the importance of getting a few customers and sponsoring a few people.
He doesn’t promote internet systems or tell people they have to start their own blog, buy solo ads or spam their business all over Facebook.
He is also out there in the trenches doing what he teaches.
This empowers his team.
When everyone is following the same system and doing the same thing, magical things can happen in your business.
# 5 He’s Great at Building Relationships
We all know that relationships are what dictates our long-term success in network marketing.
He succeeded in Amway for almost 20 years and spent about 8 years in Mona Vie before he sold his business.
During this time, Brig Hart was a master at building friendships and relationships.
He invested his time and money building solid friendships.
He showed other people that he cared out them as people, not just business partners.
When you hear him talk you can tell he is a genuine guy.
He’s also got amazing people skills.
In my opinion, these five “skills” are what made Brig Hart so successful in network marketing and in life.
Please understand that they’re really not secrets at all.
Anyone can take the time to learn and develop these skills.
If you want it bad enough and are willing to do the work, you too can achieve huge success in network marketing.
