Did I mention that Steven Thompson has a heck lot of money?
If not, then that is a very BIG mistake that I should vehemently apologize for.
To say that this man is wealthy is an understatement in mlm business.
This man has a lot of real cash!
He is super-rich but very humble, eloquent, and highly sought after in the United States of America and Canada.
Yes, here is a man that really makes bank, but he is also a man that pays it forward by donating to charities and organizations for the needy, like Help the Hungry!
He is among the few humble mlm top earners that make over $370,000 per month, translating to $4,440,000 a year, and has so far earned more than $15 million for the 8.5 years he has been with Ambit mlm business.
Looks like that income continues to climb each year.

The Journey of Steve Thompson to MLM Top Earner in Ambit Energy
Steven Thompson is a marketing professional who started his own insurance company in his earlier age.
He has involved himself in a lot of businesses, ranging from working for The National Company, voluntary work, to owning an insurance company under his name.
It is, however, interesting that Steve Thompson never had any idea of mlm business or he had heard about it, but never knew it is a viable venture.
This was on until one of his insurance customers introduced him to the Herbalife industry by giving him one of their products to try out.
After finding the product to be interesting, he went online and watched what he calls an inspirational video of Mark Hughes, who is the late Founder and CEO of the MLM Company called Herbalife International.
He then tried to sell the products from this company for 2 years but failed and lost hope. For him, he didn’t care too much for dealing with all of those products that Herbalife offered.
Hope was gone but not forgotten.
He never knew that this was just an introduction to what is going to change his life forever.
Steve Thompson said that his failure in the Herbalife Corporation was simply because the person who introduced him never gave him enough mentorship on how the mlm business is conducted.
Makes you wonder how many ‘Steve Thompson’s’ are out there that weren’t given the proper tools and ended up leaving before they ever really got started?
How many that see these mlm opportunities, jump on board, only to fail due to a lack of commitment from their up-line or sponsors, claiming that it must be some sort of SCAM, SLAM, or BAM!
I know that I am one of those many ‘failed’ stories in the mlm world where I didn’t do what it took to get the job done and realize the dream for myself.
No, I blamed it on others and while there is SOME truth to that, I was mainly responsible to the failures of all of my mlm adventures!
Steve tried to figure it out by himself, but it overwhelmed him, to say the least.
He also acknowledges this to be a challenge to many newbie in entrepreneurship as they hardly get enough mentorship before starting their businesses.
This is what also inspired him to start his consultancy firm and write books under this niche.
Steve Thompson went back to his business and tried to look for another viable business for 10 solid years but found none.
He later pumped on Excel communications which brought him back to the mlm industry but never made the big bucks he wanted.
He stayed with the Excel communications for 8 years while still managing his insurance company.
His first real mlm success came in the travel industry.
He felt he had found his home there and enjoyed being in the Top 20.
One day, Steve got a call from an old buddy of his from Excel, Phil Eckart, and Steve went to meet with the founders of Ambit Energy.
In that meeting is when Steve realized just how huge this potential was.
After some research and due diligence, Steve stepped out of his comfort zone in the travel industry and joined Ambit Energy.
It is after 3 years working with Ambit Energy mlm that he said “enough is enough”!
He sold his insurance company, so as to create time and concentrate on Ambit Energy in full time.
That is how he started to make real money with Ambit Energy, like no other.
