23-year-old regional director at Souvre Internationale. He comes from Wrocław. A travel lover since his childhood. At the age of six he learned by heart all the capitals of the world, and after school he spent time buried in maps and atlases. He is also an athlete, martial arts played a big role in his life and taught character. He works in the Multi Level Marketing industry, which is why we decided to ask him the details of his success.
Hello Bartosz. We appreciate that you have found the time for this interview. Tell us please, what prompted you to join the MLM industry and how long have you been fulfilling yourself in this form of business?
I joined the Marketing industry in 2012, at the age of 16. Liked it from the beginning and I knew it would be my way of life. I was a young man who did most of the things because „I was supposed to”but not because it was the result of my conscious decisions. I watched this business for almost 4 years, tried my hand at several projects, but ultimately I did not achieve any spectacular results. There was no entrepreneurial attitude, perseverance, too many dreams and a lack of systematics and consistency characteristic of this age. I always knew that in this business you can earn a lot and that it is a lifestyle in a certain way, but I did not immediately know how to achieve it.
Why did I take up MLM business? Because I quickly realized that leading a gray life I would try to survive. There is no question of living fully.
I like that if I make a mistake I won’t be fired. That when to my loved ones happens something that requires my time, I am not asking for time off. That when I am sick, or if I just don’t have strength, I don’t get up in the morning, just make tea, start my laptop and work. I am also happy with the amazing lifestyle. When you get up early in the morning, you have no stress in your head that you need to check the time, because maybe you’ve just overslept for your shift. You wear a shirt, not a uniform, you drive a good car to a prestigious restaurant or cafe, you work for several hours, not a dozen, and your business works 24h and not only while you work, you just want to breathe.
At the same time I can make my dreams come true, that means I can do something that is the most hackneyed and hated activity synonymous with the word success (in my case traveling). And finally the most important thing – I know that I will reach my retirement in a few years and not in 40, so in the case of children and family, I will have time for them. This is the most important thing.
Young age has its own rules and rights. Tell us more please: in what company you are fulfilling yourself?
This is the Souvre Internationale company. I have fulfilling myself in it since September 2017. I got to know the company at the very beginning, I had the opportunity to participate in the opening gala in 2016, but a year a half after this even I fully started my actions to develop the company.
Well, I have achieved the position of Regional Director that enables 5-digit earnings. I also picked up the Jaguar XE car within 7 months. I built an organization of 1.5 thousand in just over a year, which generates four-digit numbers every day, acquires and trains a total of several dozen partners every day. This can be called a fairly large business, because I have a registered company, so the success is not to take a loan on it. I obtained the appropriate qualifications to celebrate the company’s anniversary in the Dominican Republic. In addition to creating a ceiling that gives peace in my life, I created in my team one of the youngest managers in the industry, currently at the age of 19. He is a man who also qualified for a car and his network has several hundred partners.
We are curious how you have developed your business since that time. Tell us more about your successes.

How do you plan to create another 4 leaders with a car qualification?
I will create the next 4 leaders in exactly the same way as the previous one. By my own system of work, “upgraded” with small things that are characteristic of my way of being, character and are consistent with the vision and idea of the company. I start by choosing a person. Let’s agree, regardless of our skills, we are people – we cannot help and share our attention with everyone. I always choose people who, in addition to the usual WANTING, have potential and resources. I prefer to make someone want it, but it has potential rather than teach unreal things to someone who only works on emotions and does not have an adequate approach to my system.
Then I try to create conditions for the person whom I take under my wing. They must feel that they are part of the team – we are herd. We like it when someone cares for us. That is why I introduce this person to the rest of the team and explain that what we are planning to arise when every cog works. If I have 5 activities to do in business and I do them 100%, because 1x1x1x1x1 is equal to 1. If one of the 5 activities I do half-way, then 1x1x1x1x0.5 equals 0.5. It spoils the whole result. One person from a dozen or so may, with their lack of commitment, fail the entire plan.
Then I give them all the tools and teach her independence. When you watch Formula 1, you think you would like to drive such a car yourself. When you watch KSW, you would like to be able to fight like that. As long as I am the one who can, our relationship is LEADER-PERSON FROM THE TEAM, and when we both can, our relationship is PARTNER-PARTNER. Question what do you prefer? The last element that I would draw out as a component is vision. I explain to man why I do it. They must know that we do not do any „small business” with products in which you can earn PLN 200. I want to expand this business so that it stays for years, that I know someone in every big city in Poland and Europe.
The man I want to make a LEADER must feel that he is taking his first steps to change his life today. I changed this life, it is not an abstraction, it is happening.
The conclusion is obvious. The MLM industry is for everyone, regardless of age. We are impressed! Does the Regional Director have more company obcjectives related to the cooperation with Souvre Internationale?
Of course. I would like to visit every country in the world to set a new meaning for ‘I saw everything’. Another goal is to create a book about it that would be a textbook for people with the attitude of getting and creating. I would also like to ensure a comfortable life for my family using, among others MLM, because full freedom, financial and time independence are important to me.
And if you stard a busines in Network Marketing again, would you change anything?
In the MLM industry, it’s hard to change something that doesn’t suit me or that should be changed. I think that the education system and society should be changed so it could be done simply differently.
We live in a country that in teaches absolutely nothing about network marketing. In a country where, during the course „Introduction to entrepreneurship” in high school, we learn about how many days off we are entitled to and we need to absorb most of the knowledge only because ‘it is so in the program’. Once I asked my teacher in high school who taught the mentioned „Introduction to entrepreneurship” , “What to invest if I have half a million?”
A friend told me about MLM, he probably did not hear about it during the lessons or on TV. Unfortunately, 99% of our society cannot even explain the MLM abbreviation correctly, but willingly speaks in confrontation with a professional from this industry. Invitation to a meeting about money instead of taking it as an opportunity, and out of gratitude, to listen about with a smile, we treat it as a signal that someone wants to cheat us, a company that allows driving a good car must be illegal, and the circles on the page are probably a financial pyramid.
It’s all very interesting.
We don’t realize that by telling someone in a public place that his business is a financial pyramid, we practically accuse him of fraud. We often do it while working full-time, where there is someone above us who will never earn less than us and this is ok. Such a geometric paradox in Polish thinking. Half jokingly, which is not possible, in the industry it might be worth to “hinder” access to some projects, there are companies where you can become a “partner” by investing PLN 1, as well as PLN 25,000. The difference is that if you are 18 years old and you invest PLN 1, you probably will not treat it as your own business or company, so you will not take responsibility for your people, for your moves and decisions, and this may result in the creation of further stereotypes about industry.
Today, you may have the approach that you “touch” this topic for a month, check it and do not get involved immediately. Okay, but maybe tomorrow a man will come to you who, if you explained everything to him and showed his professionalism, would get involved and do business for you. The difference between checking the project month on full and slightly differs in that here and here the month will pass, and in the second case you will collect less experience. So how do you encourage others to collect them? We do not take seriously the man who sitting in a sweatshirt and sneakers, chewing gum tells you about making millions and then contacts you once a week as he finds time between the party. It creates the image of the industry.
In my organization, I emphasize the quality of the information provided and that everyone gets 100% spectrum and technical support from me and my leaders.
You like travelling. How can you combine this passion with your business?
I can easily combine my passion with business. Passive income, which is the vision of the end of many social marketing leaders, is above all, the condition of your team in which the team does not require your support. Self-employed individuals earning a living, lots of them. Then you can work remotely, online, consulting or just work less. Traveling around the world, I can do network everywhere I go. I know many leaders and businessmen who in many networks of several hundred thousand (it’s no mistake) have registered partners from a dozen or several dozen countries around the world.
Maybe you should work at foreign market openings?
From the very beginning of this story, I am motivated by one thought. I think of my team as an international organization, spread all over the world, about which I mentioned above. About thousands of Leaders in dozens of countries, continuous movement across the entire width of the globe. I am very happy that the owners of my company think globally and I am just waiting for every move of this type from their part to build a business in open foreign markets. It opens your head very much and allows you to look calmly at problems concerning one city or a small team of several hundred people. If you want to do network and are not looking for contacts at the end of the world, you do not think about such development – change the occupation. Waste of time.
We are getting to the end of our interview. Does Bartosz Charlar have any adivce for people who may plan to join the industry?
Tips for beginners? I have one important. Throw out of your mind schemes of cheating, omnipresent fortune-tellers waiting for your fortune success and just get involved so that if you decide that it is not worth it – do not regret wasted time. Most often, it turns out well, because marketing is something incredibly easy and consists of activities that we do every day. Only nobody pays us for them (meeting people, advertising, using the Internet). Remember that there are things more important in life than discomfort, so it’s worth getting through it, learning something new, changing a few things in your approach and life so that you can enjoy it later.
