"I came across this life/business behavior-changing course by random chance - if there is such a thing. Scrolling through some posts and Russ DeVan was recommended as a person to learn from in regards to business growth and development. Eight weeks later I am incredibly grateful for the un-training that has helped me to create a project and is leading me to my short and long-term visions for myself and my family. It has helped me to understand the role of a sponsor more in the MLM industry and to stop trying to bring people along on MY journey but rather support them to create their own. The support on the FB group was fantastic, the weekly calls priceless. I can certainly recommend this course for ANY business owner in the MLM space and being on the live calls allows for better interaction and understanding. Thank you Russ - You're a legend."

"Back in 1995, an article on Russ DeVan was featured in a special edition of SUCCESS Magazine. After reading it, I was so inspired, I decided to contact him. I had been struggling in the Network marketing profession for over 10 years. Russ invited my business partner and me into his home, and offered some simple but profound coaching and direction. With the application of that advice, I went on to build an organization of over 50,000 distributors and earn millions of dollars in Network Marketing. Thanks Russ, for getting me started on my road to success!"
“Russ has developed a functional level of mastery in training and coaching people. He has taken the often complex business of this business and made it the simplest, most understandable, yet most profound and duplicatable organization - growing system you’ve ever seen.”
"When we decided to sign up for Russ DeVan’s Success by Design un-training course, I must admit that it was with a modicum of trepidation as, being totally new to network marketing, both my husband and I felt absolutely overwhelmed in the mire of folklore and opinion. From the outset we had been flooded with a plethora of “Just do it my way and you’ll be a six-figure income earner in a month” and “Repeat this script and you’ll have no problem signing people up”, all the while struggling to overcome our own lack of knowledge and potential prospects’ immediate negative reaction to multi-level marketing. And the fact that we seemed to be really bad at it – people making high ranks daily while we battled to sign anyone up! What an absolute gem Russ is; his unassuming delivery style coupled with incredibly in-depth knowledge of the industry gave us immediate relief and confidence that we hadn’t made the biggest mistake of our lives! His ‘Success by Design’ just makes sense; his constant reiteration that quality is always preferable to quantity is refreshing in an industry which prizes urgency and immediate growth. Not that Russ doesn’t believe in urgency; this is always important, however by ensuring that each participant has a complete understanding of the process and fundamentals of their business and what they’re trying to achieve, gives each and every attendee both the assurance and the tools to impart this knowledge to their new team members. The most beneficial elements of the un-training have to be understanding how to prospect by building relationships not selling. Plus, establishing a project and developing a duplicatable, systematic and structured approach. These benefits, coupled with the confidence and support that Russ imparts, makes this course incredibly valuable and neither my husband or I would have any hesitation in recommending Success by Design to anyone embarking on a MLM career."
