90 Day MLM Challenge

Welcome to my 90 Day MLM Challenge page.  The purpose of this page is to educate you about what a 90 Day MLM Challenge is and show you what type of results some people have achieved. Of course, individual results will always vary.

What is a 90 Day MLM Challenge? 

A 90 Day MLM Challenge is a compressed, focused burst of energy in your network marketing business where you commit to working your business 2-8 hours per day, every day, at least six days a week.  It’s designed to create momentum in your business and quick growth.  Some people refer to it as a 90-day blitz.  It is a short period of time where you double or triple your efforts, and work harder than you ever have before in your business.

Why Should I Do a 90 Day MLM Challenge?

Almost every top earner in our industry credits their success to doing a 90-day blitz, or multiple blitzes.  Yes, you want to be consistent and steady. That’s important. But, it’s also important to go “all in” for a few months to create the excitement and momentum, before you revert to the steady pace. The # 1 reason to do a 90 Day Challenge is to grow your business and make more money.

Important Update

I no longer facilitate 90-Day Challenges for people outside of my own team.  That being said, I hope you will make the time to do your own 90-Day Challenge.

Success Stories

“Charles Holmes is a great motivator and very knowledgeable in the MLM world. I learned what things are important to focus on in my business that will make me more money and what things are just time consumers. Chuck was there for me every step of the way and worked with me individually as needed. This challenge exceeded my expectations and I am looking forward to working with Chuck again on my next challenge. Thank you.” Jessica Schmidt, Independent Rep YLEO

vedra moon“I just finished my second 90 day MLM challenge with Chuck Holmes and having him as a mentor for the challenge is definitely worth a lot more than small investment I made to take part in challenge. Chuck has been in the industry for many years and has learned a lot, he is more than happy to share with you what he’s learned building his business so that you can hopefully avoid some of the mistakes he’s made. Taking part in the challenge has definitely helped me pinpoint some of my weaknesses in my effort to take my business to the next level and has helped me build momentum in my business by having to be active daily. I loved the weekly accountability calls where I had report my weekly activity and was able to hear what other challengers did to grow their business. Having entrepreneurs from multiple MLM companies was a great way for me to learn more about the industry and all the different ways I can grow my business. If you are a new struggling network marketer or even a seasoned network marketer and are ready to take your business to the next level I highly recommend a 90 day MLM challenge with Chuck Holmes he is a great mentor and friend to have.” ~ Vedra Moon, Work with Vedra 

dildar rana“I discovered Charles Holmes’ (Chuck) 90 day challenge on the internet and the moment I discovered it, I decided to join the next challenge which was taking place in a couple months. The reason why I joined his 90 day challenge was because I needed someone to push me and keep me accountable. During this 90 day challenge, he inspired me, pushed me and encouraged me on a daily basis. Every single day he was there to support me. He delivered more than expected. His dedication and commitment to support all the group members in his 90 day challenge and sharing his knowledge and wisdom generously was an extraordinary experience. During the challenge I discovered how beneficial it was for me to participate. It has helped me stay on course and take my business serious. I spoke to 192 people during the challenge which resulted in 39 new customers and 8 sign ups. My belief in network marketing business has strengthened and I am deeply grateful for all his support. I highly recommend you to join him. You will be glad you did. I am looking forward to join his next challenge which I know will take my business to the next level. Thanks Chuck! You have been a great leader with a tremendous amount of support. Your knowledge and support made a huge difference in both my personal development and my business development. Thank you again.” ~ Dildar Rana, Forever Living Products Rep

“I have recently had the honor to complete a 90 Day MLM Challenge with Charles Holmes. It was so nice to have someone supporting me and guiding me while building my network marketing business. I had the ability to watch podcasts and YouTube videos that were posted for those of us doing the challenge that I would not have come across myself, and I also go to read blog posts about building my business and being my own boss. I discovered that I was spending a lot of time on tasks that were not profitable and changed my focus to use my time better. I accomplished several of my original goals and I can’t wait to start the next challenge to complete that list! If you have the chance to be mentored by Charles Holmes, don’t let it pass you by.” Stephanie Fischer, Independent Rep YLEO

debbie hill“I had the opportunity to participate in a 90 day business growth challenge hosted by Charles Holmes. Although I did not achieve my original goal I learned so much about myself and how I run my business better. It was eye opening, acknowledging that many of my habits were good, but learning so many other skills and habits I now have because of the information Charles shared. Every morning while on my treadmill, I was inspired by You Tube videos, posts and info that Charles himself created and other little nuggets he found and shared with us! I am a stronger, wiser business woman and team leader because of this challenge. I grew on a personal level as well. If you get the chance to be mentored by Charles Holmes jump in with both feet. It will be life changing on so many levels. I’ve got the momentum and I’m not stopping. Can’t wait to do another challenge with Charles. Thank you for this life changing experience.” Debbie Maddock Hill, Independent YELO Rep

brenda miller“Recently, I participated in a 90 Day MLM Challenge provided by Charles Holmes. With a 35 plus year background in the sales industry I had no idea what MLM was about nor did I realize that the company I was already purchasing products from and loved provided me with a network marketing opportunity. During the 90 Day Challenge, Charles taught me how take my knowledge and background to a whole new level. With determination, patience, persistence, and consistency I was able to increase my team by over 600% growth during this 90 day challenge with 22 personally enrolled distributors. Charles provides excellent information and encouragement that I strongly recommend to anyone who is looking to go into business. Thanks to Charles Holmes I am on my way to finding new opportunities that I never dreamed were possible.”  Brenda Miller, Independent YLEO rep 

Kathy Howell“I took up the challenge that Charles Homes promoted in his networking circle, and I am so glad I did! It was 90 days of focused accountability and activity. Charles was great to work with and always went the extra mile, sharing plenty of quality content. I highly recommend working with Charles and know you will be a richer person because of it.” Kathy Howell, Independent Asea Rep    

Chuck’s 90-Day MLM Challenge Results (November 2, 2017 to January 20, 2018)

I just finished my 90-day challenge yesterday.  It started on November 2nd and ended on January 30th.  I am physically and mentally exhausted, but I am very happy with my results.

90 day mlm challengeI started a new team on November 2nd.  We went from 0 to 665 people in 90-days.  Less than 1% of the people I have on my team I knew before.  I personally sponsored 82 people during that time, most who were complete strangers prior to me starting the business.

No one was put on my team.  I got no deals from the company.  No spillover.  I didn’t bring in a bunch of people in from another company, either.  I just worked my butt off, and was lucky to find a few quality people who also worked hard.

I say none of this to brag.  I just want you to know that YOU can accomplish incredible things in your business as well, if you set some goals, come up with a plan of action and work your business consistently.  That is the key to success.  Do something EVERY SINGLE DAY to move your business forward, no excuses.

I will be doing my next 90-day challenge starting tomorrow.  My goal is to go from 655 people to 2,500 people from February 1st to April 30th (89 days).  My end goal is to have 15,000 people on my team by the end of year 1.

Chuck’s 90 Day MLM Challenge Results (August 1, 2014 to October 31, 2014)

My Goals:

  • Personally sponsor 24 new reps
  • Have 3 legs in my group that are at least 5 levels deep
  • Have 1 Bronze Leg
  • Add 125 new people to my team (all levels)
  • Qualify as Silver in month of October; do at least 6000 IP on first three levels in OCT
  • Generate 1,000 leads online: 700 Weight Loss Leads with PPC and 300 MLM Leads from my website
  • Publish 100 blog posts

My Strategy:

  • Blog Daily
  • Utilize PPC to generate leads
  • Prospect 2-3 people per day
  • Run COOP for team
  • Weekly training call and business opportunity call with team
  • Send introductory letter to entire warm market with $10 coupon
  • Track my progress daily
  • Post daily update on Facebook

My Results:

  • Personally sponsored 11 people personally (13 short of my goal)
  • Only have one leg five levels deep (2 short of my goal)
  • Published 96 blog posts (4 short of my goal)
  • Generated 1151 leads for my business (151 more than my goal)
  • Read 15 books

During my 90 Day MLM Challenge, I only worked my business part-time, for about an hour a day.  I also did 100% of my work online.  I did no face-to-face meetings.  I worked my business six days a week and took Sunday off to relax with my wife.

What I Did Right:

  • I was very consistent
  • I tracked my progress each day
  • I set aside two hours a day to work my business

What Went Wrong:

  • Many of my goals were too high and unrealistic

The biggest takeaway from doing my 90 Day MLM Challenge was that I should only set goals for things that I can control.  For example, I can’t control how many people my team members sponsor.  In addition, my goals need to be a little bit more realistic, based upon the TIME I am going to commit to the business each day. Overall, completing the challenge was very satisfying.  Even though I didn’t hit all of my goals, I was very happy with my progress, growth and results.

Chuck’s 90 Day MLM Challenge Results (August 1, 2015 to October 31, 2015)

I recently completed my fourth 90 Day MLM Challenge of my career.  I led two groups, from various network marketing companies through their own 90-day challenge from August 1, 2015 to October 31, 2015.  I served as the moderator for those two groups and also did my own challenge at the same time.

Here are my major accomplishments during the challenge:

  • Personally Sponsored 16 people
  • Grew team by 61 people
  • Increased bonus check by 30%
  • Published 98 blog posts
  • Added 802 comments to my blog
  • Generated 1,310 leads
  • Created 120 podcasts
  • Read 16 books
  • Sent 193 handwritten notes
  • Posted 10-20 updates in each group on Facebook every single day

I spent about 2-3 hours per day on my business during this time.

Things I Did Right

I was consistent, day in and day out, seven days a week for the entire 90 days.  I worked every day, never got side tracked and stayed the course.  I kept my goals in front of me at all times and did what I said I was going to do.

Things I Did Wrong

As the moderator, my major focus was on helping participants in the 90-day challenge be successful.  I spent a large majority of my time helping others.  I could have accomplished a lot more had I focused the same amount of time on my own business.

Finally, I made the mistake of setting goals covering things I had no control over, to include helping other people in my team rank advance and expected team growth.  I now realize that I should only set goals on what I can personally control based upon my own personal production.

Key Lessons & Takeaways

  • You can accomplish a lot in 90 days
  • 90 days is a long time
  • Small, consistent daily activity compounds over a period of time
  • 80-90% of the people who started the challenge did not finish it
  • The people who stuck with it had significant growth in their business
  • Your goals must be realistic based upon the amount of time you will spend working your business
  • It’s important to understand the difference between being busy and being productive
  • You should only set goals for things that you can control, such as exposures, plans shown, appointments set, etc.
  • Don’t agree to participate in a challenge if you won’t follow through
  • For most people a 7 or 30 day challenge would be much more effective than a 90 day challenge

Overall, I am happy with my own results.  Doing your own challenge would be very beneficial for your business. Even if you can’t commit do 90 days, do a 30-day challenge.  Also, remember that this business is a marathon, not a sprint.  I would much rather have someone be consistent every day for several years, than start out fast with a 90-day challenge and then burn out and disappear.

  4. We did our 90 day challenge from April 1 to June 30, 2015.  It was a 91 day period.  My objective was to grow my blog traffic, to produce lots of new content for my blog, to add new email subscribers, and build my MLM Team at the same time.  Listed below you will see my goals and results for the challenge.

    # 1 Generate 2000 new email leads

    Result: I generated 1,354 new leads for free on my blog during the challenge, missing my goal by 646 leads.  This breaks down as follows: 961 eZine leads, 322 Life Plus leads, 27 weight loss leads, and 44 free CD leads.

    # 2 Add 1000 new blog comments

    Result: I added 1,028 new comments to my blog during the challenge.  About half of the comments were from freelancers that I hired and the other comments were my responses, plus contributions from blog visitors.

    # 3 Leave 182 blog comments

    Result: I left 250 total blog comments on about 100 different blogs.  These provided a good amount of new links and traffic to my blog.

    # 4 Publish 91 podcasts

    Result: I published 67 new podcasts on iTunes.  My channel features generic training on network marketing.

    # 5 Create 91 new YouTube videos

    Result: I published 16 videos, missing my goal of 91.  I decided that making videos wasn’t the best use of my time, so I ditched the idea early on.

    # 6 Create 91 new blog posts

    Result: I wrote and published 92 blog posts, one more than my goal.

    # 7 Send 182 handwritten notes

    Result: I wrote 275 handwritten notes and mailed them to prospects, friends, team members and family.

    # 8 Personally Sponsor 20 people

    Result: I personally sponsored 8 new people during the challenge, far below my goal of 20 people.

    # 9 Help 7 of those people sponsor at least one person

    Result: None of my new people sponsored anyone.

    # 10 Rank advance to Silver

    Result: I got promoted to the rank of Bronze and missed the rank of Silver by about 1700 points.  I should hit that in the next month or two.

    # 11 Help two people rank advance to Bronze

    Result: Only one team member hit the volume requirements for Bronze, but he did not qualify as a Bronze.

    # 12 Have one leg over 3k points and two legs at 1k points

    Result: I have one leg over 3k and one leg just shy of 1000 points, plus several others that are growing quickly.

    # 13 Add 91 team members to organization

    Result: I added 84 new team members during the challenge.  I started with 77 team members and ended with 161 team members.

    # 14 Read 13 books

    Result:  I read 16 books during the challenge, passing my goal by three books.

    # 15 Exercise daily

    Result: I exercised 57 of the 91 days.  I started out a bit slow, but finished strong.

    # 16 Lose 20 pounds

    Result: I only lost a couple pounds.  I was nowhere near my goal.


    I spent way too much time running the challenge and helping everyone in it
    Only 1 other person of the 16 people in the challenge was on my actual MLM Team
    I spread myself too thin by having blog goals, in addition to my MLM goals
    I worked every day, but should have put in another hour or two per day
    I stayed consistent throughout the challenge
    When I do my next 90 day challenge, it will only be for my MLM Company and not for my blog
    I am proud of my accomplishments
    My business has more than doubled during the challenge
    Final Thoughts

    In summary, doing a 90-day challenge was worth the time I put into it.  My business grew, I had fun, and I learned a lot.  I look forward to doing another one in the near future.

    Chuck Holmes
