The REAL List of First Split Placements for 2017

Well, we started the year with a miscalculation. (And when I say “we,” I really mean “I.”) Last week in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog, we published the names of recruiters who made their first split placement in Top Echelon Network in 2017.

The bad news is that we made a miscalculation. The good news is that more recruiters made their first TE split last year than originally thought!

In fact, quite a few Network members made their first split. To atone for this oversight, I’ve included the complete list below. There’s some overlap from last week, but as many of you well know, you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet. Or something like that.

First time for everything

To recap, we count a placement once we receive our brokerage fee for it. A verbal offer accepted does not count as a completed placement. That’s because money talks and . . . well, you know the rest. So the list below represents an updated list of recruiters who made their first Network split in 2017 and we received the brokerage fee for that placement.

So if you made your first Network split in November or December, but we haven’t received the brokerage fee, then it’s not a completed placement. Not yet, anyway.

In the meantime, please congratulate these recruiters for making their first Network split in 2017!
