Nathan Ricks Nu Skin Team Elite One Team Global Founder

Nathan Ricks is a legend in the network marketing industry.

He is one of the most successful distributors of all time, having built a down line of more than 500,000 distributors and earning more than $40 million in commissions (at the time of this writing).

Within 24 months of joining Nu Skin Enterprises, he built a team of more than 100,000 distributors.

Think about that for a minute.

Most successful distributors never get to that level, let alone in 24 months.

He has been a Team Elite member since 1989.

His down line has more than one half million distributors and does business in more than 43 countries.

In fact, his down line accounts for approximately one half of Nu Skin’s total sales.

He is also the founder of One Team Global.

The purpose of One Team Global is to train and motivate Nu Skin distributors on how to build a successful business.

They offer seminars, training, coaching and educational products.

In addition, Nathan Ricks helped launch Nu Skin Japan.

In its first year, Nu Skin Japan did more than $135 million in sales.

Obviously, he is effective at building international markets.

I learned about him on Eric Worre’s Network Marketing Pro website.

I watched an interview with him and Eric Worre.

What I really liked about Nathan Ricks was his easy going and laid back demeanor.

But don’t let that you fool you.

This guy is extremely focused and motivated.

He is the type of sponsor you would dream of having.

Nathan has been married for 30 years.

He and his wife have four adult daughters.

He also holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Phoenix.

    I have no experience with them myself but I did meet Nathan Ricks when I was on a short VK trip with a friend. She knew who he was and I did not. We had a short talk and I was blown away by the way he carried himself. He just had a power with him and you can tell he was a leader. Amazing man.

    Nathan Ricks taught me a lot about goal setting, having a vision for your business and the importance of being consistent. I’ve listened to his training for more than five years now and he never ceases to amaze me.

    One thing that I learned from Nathan Ricks is that you have to treat your business like a real business if you want to make real money. Part-time effort equals part-time income and full-time effort equals full-time income.

    I’ve read online that some people think he is a scam artist. I’m not sure how they arrived at that decision. I’ve worked on his team for more than five years now and I believe his heart is in the right place.

      It is shown that people who achieve the success that Nathan Ricks has will be called scam artists. It comes from jealousy. No matter what in life, if we succeed, there is always at least one person who will attempt to bring it crashing down by telling lies. It behooves me why some people are this way, but they are out there. When someone tells me that something or someone is a scam, I will listen, but I will not take it completely serious until I know for sure. Looking at Nathan’s background, I could never go along with his being a scam artist.

    Nathan Ricks is a really cool guy. If you were to meet him in day to day life, he would come across as the average joe. He is very easy to related to and connect with. I think that’s one of the reasons he became so successful.

      Lane,

      I don’t know the actual number of people on his team or how much it grows each year. But with a team that big it really becomes a self-perpetuating machine and normally grows year after year.

      I agree that some people lose money with the company. But lots of people make $500 and more per month. Individual results will always vary based upon work ethic, goals, and initiative. You can make as much or as little as you want to with this company.

    I’ve known Nathan Ricks for many years now. I’m in his downline. Looking back, he has achieved such incredible success with Nu Skin. Anyone who can build a team of 1/2 million distributors or more is quite amazing! Best of all, he’s helped hundreds of people earn six figure incomes with Nu Skin, so he definitely knows what he is doing.

    I would love to do more research on Nathan Ricks. The fact that he was able to obtain that level of success in such a short amount of time is quite admirable. While I am not trying to copy that model because I know that in my own business it will take much more time, I still would like to know what his process was. Perhaps I can carry some of his ideas or attitudes with me so that I can make it big with what I am trying to do.

      Here’s a few lessons I learned from Nathan Ricks that you can apply in your business.

      1) Have a vision – You need to have a big vision, long before you ever become successful.
      2) Work hard – You must be willing to work like a dog, day in and day out, if necessary.
      3) Look for leaders (good customers) – Look for people who are looking for what you have to offer.
      4) Be disciplined – Don’t make excuses. Hold yourself to a high standard at all times.
      5) Take massive action – At the end of the day nothing replaces massive action. Work part-time and get part-time results. Work full-time and get full-time results.

      If you can do those five things, you will be well on your way in your business, Diamond.

    Sounds to me like Nathan Ricks is Nu Skin. What do you think would happen to that MLM business if he one day decided to take his downline with him to some other marketing firm? I wonder why he hasn’t done something like that already with how successful he is; he could obviously make it on his own.

      He is definitely a big part of Nu Skin with nearly half of all distributors in the company is his downline. If he went to another company it would be devastating to Nu Skin. But I don’t see Nathan Ricks going anywhere anytime soon.

    I think Nathan Ricks is a complete scam artist. He talks about how anyone can make money with Nu Skin, but the truth of the matter is that just about everyone who is successful in Nu Skin joined many years ago. Most of the people who join today do nothing but lose money and make everyone rich.
