Carl Willis is the creator of Create Your Blog Now, The Marketing Classroom and the author of The Troubles Of A Righteous Man and Lessons From The Storm. He is an industry leader and featured speaker in the internet marketing/network marketing space. He is also a featured contributor to Me Inc. magazine.
Carl grew up in Wichita, Kansas and always had a love for entrepreneurship. After high school he married his sweetheart and began a career in law enforcement, working as a police officer in Fort Worth, Texas and Dodge City, Kansas. During those years he tinkered with several businesses on the side including a police equipment supply dealership, a professional recruiting service and a computer repair service.
Carl left law enforcement in the mid 90s and went into banking and investments. During that time he also entered the ministry and began leading local churches. Eventually he ended up opening his own financial advisory firm and used that to support his ministry work.
In 2008 he started Simplicity Church Network, a ministry that plants churches and Bible colleges around the world. His ministry was designed to be funded by commerce; however, the reality of the financial advisory profession made it an unsuitable mechanism, so he went in search of a solution. That solution led him to something he swore he would never be a part of….network marketing.
Carl uses network marketing to not only fund his ministry, but also to give income opportunities to people who are rebuilding their lives.
Carl and his wife currently live in Wichita, KS and are the proud parents of 3 great children.
