Happy 25th Anniversary to ‘The Pinnacle’ Newsletter!
It’s here! The Pinnacle that you’ve all been waiting for!
Actually, that’s a bit of a misnomer, since you have to wait for EVERY Pinnacle newsletter to arrive in your email’s inbox. However, there’s something just a little different about this particular issue.
The difference lies in the fact that The Pinnacle is celebrating its 25th anniversary this week!
That’s right, the very first Pinnacle newsletter was sent to Preferred Member recruiters by Top Echelon Network founder Mike Kappel on March 5, 1988.
It goes without saying that the first Pinnacle was sent via traditional snail mail, a hardcopy version printed on yellow paper. (We still have the first copies of the newsletter in the Top Echelon offices. They’re not yellow because they’re old . . . the paper was originally yellow.)
Eventually, as technology progressed, The Pinnacle was delivered electronically via email as a PDF document. Three years ago, the newsletter underwent a third change when it was compiled in a blog on the Top Echelon website and once again delivered electronically. That’s the way you’re reading it at the moment.
So—if a Pinnacle newsletter has been published every single week since March 5, 1988, that means:
52 newsletters every year x 25 years = 1,300 newsletters!
Is this issue of The Pinnacle the 1,300th issue? Well, I could pour over countless documents, cross-check numerous sources, and count on my fingers and toes to find out for sure . . . or I could just nod and say, “Sure, it’s the 1,300th issue.”
Sure, it’s the 1,300th issue.
However, let’s not focus on fun bits of trivia like that. Instead, let’s focus on the fact that the reason there’s been a newsletter published every week for the past 25 years is the hard work and commitment of YOU, the Preferred Member recruiters of Top Echelon Network.
You’ve invested in this Network, you believe in this Network, and you’ve been the driving force behind its success. So from everybody here at Top Echelon, we’d like to thank you for all that you do as Preferred Members.
Here’s to another 25 years! And another 1,300 Pinnacle newsletters! (Wait, what am I saying?)
