The Ethos Group is the brain child of the internet entrepreneur Peter Aldred and originally started life in the UK in 2000.
Peter, the Group's CEO, originally started out in life as a motor mechanic and he ran a small car repair business for 15 years, until he was introduced to a small black box that, little did he know at the time, was going to entirely change his future. The little black box was a magnetic fuel saving device which, he was told at the time by his friend Simon, you simply strapped around a vehicle's fuel line and it made the fuel burn more efficiently which gave you more power and better fuel economy. Peter tells me that he was very skeptical at the time, but he always holds an open mind and agreed to give it a try and test it out for himself. He fitted it to his company van and almost immediately noticed the increase in power and after, analysing the fuel consumption figures, he was amazed to see a 10% fuel saving. Never one to miss out on an opportunity, Peter started selling the little black boxes to all his friends and customers. The company selling the units was a small UK Company called Ecoflow and their Network Marketing programme offered him the opportunity to make commissions by introducing other agents and helping, teaching and training them how to sell the units and also to build themselves a network of agents to sell them too.
To cut a long story short, he went on to build a team of over 1,000+ agents across Europe and became one of their top three distributors. But rather than recognition for this amazing feat, his distributorship was terminated on Valentine's Day 2000 as, by that time, his monthly commission cheques were averaging £6,000 a month and the Company decided that he'd outlived his usefulness. So they terminated Peter and kept the team of 1,000+ agents he had built for them.
When I asked Peter how he felt about this he said; "It was obviously a massive blow at the time, I'd put seven long years of my life into building that business which was worth about £100,000 that Valentine's day morning... after their sales manager's phone call at 16:00 it was worth £0.00 and I had no business. I had always had the vision of one day running my own Networking Company and I had already been looking after my team of 1,000+ people so I decided then not to get mad but to get even and started work that very afternoon on laying down the plans for what is now The Ethos Group."
Peter tells me that he worked day and night on the project, he got a day job optimising websites, as computers had always been his hobby, and then worked all night on the very first ethos website. By 1st August everything was in place and Ethos opened their doors to their very first members. The first three years were very tough going as he built the foundations of the company and sourced the very best products that he could find from around the world. Then, in 2003 a chance meeting put him in touch with Professor Steven Charles Gallant, the eminent biochemist, who introduced him to the amazing health benefits of L-Carnosine and the company really began to expand and grow. As a result of the amazing claims that people taking their NutraRejuvion (L-Carnosine) supplement claiming they could suddenly read without their reading glasses, Ethos developed their Bright Eyes Drops for cataracts. In December 2003 the new drops gained mass exposure on The Richard & Judy Show and in the National Press Daily Mail feature and Peter's initial goal to make Ethos a household name had been achieved, in the UK at least.
This coverage lead to massive expansion and in 2004 they opened new offices in Switzerland, which coincidentally are run by Peter's friend Simon who first showed him the little black box all those years before. Ethos now enjoys a glowing reputation for their truly amazing and life-changing products that all do exactly what they say they do on the tin. Also for their unique income opportunity whereby Ethos affiliates make very healthy 30% commissions simply by trying and using the products and then recommending them to others, exactly as Peter himself did with those little black boxes.
So, The Ethos Group continues to build from strength to strength as they move forward now into their ninth year. They have come a tremendously long way in this time but Peter tells me he is still focused on his initial goal to make Ethos a household name globally, and that he will not rest until he has achieved it.
I asked Peter what it is that drives him and what he sees ahead for the group now, to which he replied; "Ethos is like my life's mission, I feel that this is why I am here. In the past eight years we have already helped thousands of people all over the world to enjoy a far better quality of life and now with 8,000 members in 76 countries we are in the prime position to help thousands more as the business continues to expand and grow. There is nothing more rewarding than receiving a phone call or a letter from someone who can see again after using our eye drops and knowing that we have helped to achieve this. I often work incredibly long hours; 100+ hours a week's a good average for me, but I don't class it like work as I love every minute of it and it's the same for the majority of our members too. We've attracted a brilliant team of like-minded people who have all caught the exact same Ethos Vision that there is a better way... and what better way to earn a living than by helping others, both health wise and financially."
Peter continued, "If you're not yet a member then simply click the button below and join us today; there's a whole team of experienced people waiting to help you get started, it's the Ethos way. There will never be a better time than now in our company's history and I always hate looking back thinking if only... don't you...?"

But don't just take our word for it - here
are some of the lovely letters and comments we have received from the people
that I have worked with over the years...
"Peter's Ethosworld Business Opportunity has been the best and most interesting thing we have ever done business wise. Having tried to do MLM with about 4 other companies... we found the way Ethos was set up ...the ease with which one can do the business... the very small set up fees, and the free Ethos Websites that you can instantly use to promote your own business are excellent.
We have worked hard, but we got the rewards, and its a great balance between excellent products that deliver and also the very good financial rewards obtained.. Also the interesting people who are our customers!
You really do want to seize this opportunity now and, by all means, if you wonder if this is a genuine testimonial then contact us
and we are happy to tell you more!"

"I was once asked - what I got out of this
business, apart from Financial Gain. The answer was easy - 'FRIENDSHIP',
'EXCITEMENT', & 'INSPIRATION'.
From someone who everyone admires and everyone always talks about, who is never
too busy or tired to help others, and asks for nothing in return - I get my
"INSPIRATION". I refer to a man who I consider to be one of the best ambassadors
for this business and, yes Peter, I am privileged and honoured to be in "your"
Thank you for all the help you have given, not only to me but to my down-line,
and may I say what you're always telling me - 'You Can Do It'!!"
~ Dorothy, UK
You deserve the kind words and thank you for sharing your experience with us.
There's no doubt, you are an excellent motivator. Heck, you've got my wife
staying up late and waking up early just to work on her Ethos business. :)
While I'm busy thanking you, let me add my thanks for the email you sent to
Wayne. It was perfect.
~ Terry, PA, USA
No wonder your net is so big and successful, you treat us like kings and I'm
sure we all appreciate it very very much. I read the newsletter in a flash and I
am now very happy that some of the profits I'll "create" will benefit you and
not any other "less nicer" sponsor :)
~ Nuno,, Portugal
You did it! the delivery did it and even I succeeded to do the rest! - I had the
transparencies in my hand 2 hours before the meeting and everything went
perfectly for the meeting!
~ A. K. Finland
Thank you very much for your last letters and fax. The laminated sheets looks
very good. I am glad that you give us this help to get more marketing material
~ Thor, Denmark
Nella certezza di poter avere un buon rapporto con Voi e con Mr Aldred, vogliate
gradire i pi?distinti saluti.
~ Mario, Italy
As usual you came up to your reputation and sent me your answers even on the
same evening. And it was really covering everything what's necessary. Andreas,
Sonja, Igor and me were still in the office when your fax arrived and now they
understand who's Pete Aldred in case they were thinking so far I'm exaggerating
when I tell about you!
~ Reinhard, Vienna.
Boy, you really know about your stuff!!! :) I feel like I could sell a dozen of
Eco1's to Damon Hill and a BioFlow to Michael Jordan!
~ Nuno, Portugal
Herzliche Gr?e aus Deutschland an das Ecoflow - Team in der ganzen Welt. Special
wishes to my friend Pete A in England! Thank you for your help!
~ Norbert, Germany
Fortunately we are in your line, and can enjoy this complimentary material. And
special thanks for the reduced carriage fees - I'll not forget to mention this
to my downline. It's very good pr-work and I hope you'll even profit from it
later in faster growing volume.
~ A. K. Finland
I've received the Compound Interest where it says all about the meeting and it's
a real pleasure to see Portugal in the list of country's that were represented
and there's already a Network working, once again thanks Pete, for this chance
you gave me without you nothing of this would be
possible, Thanks!! :)
~ Nuno, Portugal
I am most grateful to you for everything you have done to support me so far, out
of all the networking opportunities I have come across you are the only one who
seems to know what it's all about and how to really show support.
~ Glynis, England
"I've been in Networking now for about six years and I have been staggered by
the amount of help they have given me. I've certainly never encountered anything
like it in the past!"
