About Us

The Holy Grail of Network Marketing™ is an international training and coaching organization founded by Mark Yarnell, Valerie Bates and Tony and AJ Regulbuto for the sole purpose of helping professionals break away from the pack. The Holy Grail strategies are specifically calculated to help people from all walks of life multiply their cash flow dramatically and in short order.

At The Holy Grail, we all believe that Network Marketing is a privilege with an inherent responsibility to be accepted and demonstrated by all of us lucky enough to have found this profession. That responsibility is to rise to our full potential and in so doing create enough discretionary income to leave this world much better than the one into which we were born.

For the last decade, an infectious virus we call placid averagism, or P.A., has spread unchecked through Network Marketing and Direct Sales. In one of the only professions with no boundaries or caps on earnings, many infected entrepreneurs have grown content with financially tolerable comfort zones as if they had no worldly concerns beyond their own personal wants and desires. Some who could clearly achieve radical wealth have chosen instead to confuse the edge of their ruts for the horizon.

The Holy Grail of Network Marketing™ Collection will consistently promote the doctrine of no-limits income for those bold enough to join our profession. We will also advance our values-based code of business which holds that those who achieve quantum wealth should use a portion of it to facilitate altruistic goals bigger than themselves.

The virus of placid averagism is fortunately not Holy Grail resistant, nor has it mutated enough to infect everyone. By catching it in time, we hope to stem its spread and return all Networkers to their healthy goal of global improvement through unlimited prosperity.
