Cedric Penn – Talk Fusion Top Earner
Cedric Penn has been in network marketing for more than 18 years. No wonder he is a top Talk Fusion earner with $95,000.00 per month in residual income. As a MLM entrepreneur, he has helped countless individuals achieve the level of financial security that only most people can dream of.
Life hasn’t always been kind to Cedric. He was born in Brownsville, PA, the youngest of eight children. Cedric was quite the athlete, and he received a football and baseball scholarship to Purdue University. He later transferred to Western Kentucky where he was named an All-American Athlete.
As most young men who played sports, he thought he might turn pro. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen for Cedric. For years, he struggled trying to earn an income, until he was introduced to multilevel marketing. Cedric said the introduction happened at a gas station. A man asked him if he was interested in making money from home. When he said yes, the man handed him a cassette and went about his business. The rest is history.
Ranked as one of the top MLM earners in the industry, Cedric has founded his own organization, the Diamond Network and Cedric D. Penn Enterprises. The focus of his business is to present premier direct sales opportunities to everyone in the world within the principles of prosperity, faith, and family.
In 2008, while riding his motorcycle in Atlanta, GA, when he was hit by a drunk driver. Cedric suffered a broken pelvis, two broken wrists, eight teeth knocked out, his right arm broken in 23 pieces, and facial contusions. The physical trauma left Cedric emotionally scarred; he was depressed for many years. He tried to get back into the multilevel marketing game, but he couldn’t focus.
When he felt he was ready, Cedric came back with newfound strength. His plans included expanding into the international market by sharing Talk Fusion one-of-a kind instant pay compensation plan and high-quality video communication products. Bob Reina, Talk Fusion CEO & Founder, says that Cedric Penn exemplifies everything that Talk Fusion stands for, which is serving others and possessing remarkable leadership skills. Mr. Reina said that when Talk Fusion reaches the billion-dollar mark, it will be in thanks to Cedric Penn.
Cedric Penn is the author of “From Broke, Busted, and Disgusted to A Million Dollars a Year.” In his book, Cedric talks about how he overcame tragedy to find his real purpose in life. The reason why he is so successful in MLM and in life is because he lives by two rules: Be Daring and Be Exceptional.
I don’t know where Cedric Penn finds the time to work in direct selling. He is a radio show host, mentor, motivator, and team leader. Before joining Talk Fusion, Cedric worked in technology and became an executive for a major wireless corporation.
Although he was successful, Cedric didn’t have the freedom to spend time with family, friends, or do the things he loved to do.
When he started in relationship marketing, Cedric sought mentorship from top MLM earners. Moreover, he put himself on a rigorous course of personal growth. All his hard work paid off. By his third year, Cedric was making his million. Besides creating his own legacy, he has helped many others create a legacy for their families. Today, he still works with folks who want more out of life, and they are willing to work hard to get there. Cedric Penn is a Grand Blue Diamond with Talk Fusion!
Talk Fusion was established in 2007 by Bob Reina. This fast-growing MLM company is going global, and it is in more than 120 countries. Talk Fusion is said to adhere to the highest ethical multilevel marketing practices, and it is a member of the Direct Selling Association (DSA). This business operates on the principle that with great success comes great responsibility.
Leader Bob Reina brings many years of experience in network marketing to the table. With his industry expertise and entrepreneurial spirit, he wanted to build a MLM company that recognized emerging trends, promoted innovative video technology, and gave others the power to change their lives for the better. This company is comprised of dream builders, tech experts, graphic gurus, knowledgeable wordsmiths, and video professionals. So, these folks know what they are doing.
Talk Fusion products are geared toward helping businesses with their online presence. In the beginning, it was all about video email marketing, which is actually a very effective way to get leads and connect with customers. Over the years, Talk Fusion has developed new and innovative items, such as:
- Fusion On the Go – the mobile app for its video email marketing
- Video Newsletter – a customized video newsletter for your subscribers
- E-Subscription and Video Auto Responders – you can make a custom capture pages and when they opt-in, they will go into your video auto responder
- Fusion Wall – you can post videos on Talk Fusion’s video wall
- Video Blog – Talk Fusion video blogging platform
- Video Share – lets you share your video with numerous social media sites
- Connect – host webinars with up to 500 attendees
The prices for the product packages range from $125 to $1,500. Afterwards, you pay $20 to $35 per month, depending on what package you purchase. The basic package doesn’t cost a lot of money, and it is easy to use.
Talk Fusion products were reviewed by Forbes magazine in 2010, and they were given excellent feedback. However, there are critics who say that what Talk Fusion offer, you can get online for free. The biggest product that Talk Fusion promotes is video email. However, YouTube let you have video email for free, complete with privacy settings. Another one is video conferencing; you can get it for free with Skype.
Talk Fusion compensation plan is pretty much like other MLM businesses. As you earn more money, you move up in the ranks. You start off at Bronze, and you can move all the way up to Royal Blue Diamond. Talk Fusion states it is the only direct selling business that offers a debit card to receive your earnings.
This is pretty convenient, but you are also charged (by Talk Fusion) a $.25 every time a commission is paid to you. It doesn’t seem like much, but if you earn $20, you have to pay a 1.25% fee.
To become an affiliate with Talk Fusion, you have to pay a fee of $30. However, this fee doesn’t include joining the network marketing aspect. This means you have to purchase your own products, and furthermore, there are caps on your commissions. There are a number of bonuses and incentives, including bonus vacations and Mercedes bonus.
Unfortunately, there are many Talk Fusion complaints with the BBB, Glassdoor, and other websites. I read comments from folks who actually work for Talk Fusion (not distributors) that say the place is horrible. Furthermore, I read one report that there was a physical altercation between a top leader at Talk Fusion and an employee; the police report is supposedly online. I don’t know how true this, but this doesn’t paint this MLM business in a positive light.
As far as Talk Fusion being a pyramid scheme, critics states that this company doesn’t come right out and say it, but recruitment is a huge part of earning top dollars. Also, there are some complaints from associates who say that Talk Fusion doesn’t offer sufficient training to sell its products. There are tools provided, but if you don’t know how to use them, it kinds of defeats the purpose.
