Interview with Fabian Fitzner
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
My name is Fabian and I am a Full-time Network Marketer, keynote speaker, book author, TV-presenter & trainer. I started my career as an entrepreneur when I was 22 years old and became a self-employed personal fitness coach.
One year later I moved from Germany to Spain where my wife and I opened two fitness clubs, a catering service, and a personal trainer academy. It took us 6 years to build our businesses, so it hurt even more when the recession hit and we lost more than 50% of our clients.
As I was searching for a way out I heard about direct sales. I loved the concept but was a bit skeptical as I knew many people who tried but never succeeded.
So I reached out to someone who could teach me the exact steps on how to build a successful network marketing business.
I was lucky to find a great mentor. By using what I learned we could build an organization of tens of thousands of people in more than a hundred countries within a short period of time of only 5 years.
I am focused on teaching the principles of success to as many people as possible.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
One day I had a conversation with a friend of mine who is a multiple million-dollar incomes per year earner in his own rights.
I asked him why he is doing network marketing as he already is financially at the top 1%.
Then he told me an interesting story. He said: you know, first my wife started the business just to have some fun, more like a hobby. We invested around 2000$ for products.
As she was selling more and more of these products I started to have a look at the business as well. I liked the idea and reached out to my business partners and friends as everyone had a network of people who were great fits for the products or knew someone who was looking for a risk-free business.
So I started building a bit. After less than a year we made over 10.000$ a month. That happened that fast of course because my network is very strong.
So I started to think how much money would I need to invest if get a 5%ROI p.a. to make 10.000$ a month? The answer was 2.4 million USD.
I was shocked that I have just built an asset/ residual income of 5 figures a month with a 1-time investment of around 2000$ and an additional investment of my time and energy.
But you know what is the best part about all that? I still have the 2.4million to invest in other projects as I did not need to use it to make these 10k a month.
This business is a cash-flow business.”
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Don’t wish it was easier- wish you were better. Learn the skills and do not overestimate what can happen in a short period of time and underestimate what you can reach in a year or two.
Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
I am grateful for my wife Veronika Fitzner who was with me when we had nothing but always believed in me.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
We started a charity organization 3 years back. Currently, we are taking care of 547 children in 3 different villages in Uganda. We are planning to build a school there very soon as well.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Progress equals happiness.
