Episode 81 - From Chicken Chopper to Millionaire CEO with Richard Bliss Brooke
Join Kody Bateman for episode 81 of his Relationship Marketing podcast with guest Richard Bliss Brooke. From Chicken Chopper to Millionaire CEO at Age 30. Richard grew up on a cattle ranch in Chowchilla, California. His parents were affluent and educated, but Richard was a negative thinker. He hated high school, felt unworthy of love after his parent’s divorce, and barely graduated with a D average. So it was no surprise when his “ambition” led him to Foster Farms, the largest poultry plant in the world. Richard began living life at the speed of 38 BPM (Birds Per Minute). His job was to cut chickens into parts as they flew past him on the production line. Ambitious and hard-working, Richard dreamed of climbing the ranks and happily retiring after 40 years. With four years under his belt, Richard thought he was really cutting it - life, not chickens. It was 1977. Richard was 22 years old. Then something happened that forever changed the course of Richard’s life. Foster Farms changed their policy to where only employees with a four-year college degree could advance. This led Richard to say yes to a new opportunity: Network Marketing. Initially, he struggled to figure it out, how to find the right people, what to say, and how to overcome the setbacks. Eventually, through a rigorous investment of time and money in his own personal development, he discovered that it was his own thoughts, beliefs, and stories about himself that was holding him back. He changed them, changed them quickly and his business changed with them. Three years later, at age 28, Richard had 30,000 active partners building with him.
