U.S., NORTHWEST: Nguyen’s Contribution Networking Party is a Beacon of Light

“Everyone in the world has a purpose in life, ” says self-made millionaire Thach Nguyen. Born in Vietnam, when Saigon fell in 1974, he left with his family for their lives and ended up in Seattle.
As a successful realtor and philanthropist, Nguyen is committed to helping those less-fortunate and has worked on many initiatives such as renting to formerly homeless people, and helping them become home owners.
CBS Early Show profiled Thach and the story is extremely uplifting.
In the last year or so, Thach has broadened his targets, helping anyone interested in learning how to become more successful through connecting to others. He and Matthew Ferry have a process called the Contribution Game, and Thach now holds events in the Pacific Northwest called, Contribution Networking Parties.
Thach told me in an interview that there are mainly just two ways that the millionaires he’s interviewed have operated – either forcefully or in an inspired manner.
Forceful people push their way toward their own goalposts. We all know these people – they believe in success at any price, and that it is all about the end result and not the means.
Inspired successes work in another manner. They know that no one rises on their own, and that one can support others while still focusing on their own dreams. They know that “fear attracts fear” and abundance and playing big is where it’s at. True successful people have advocates, supporters, believers, and followers.
At Contribution Networking parties (called CNP), hundreds of people learn how to play The Contribution Game. You can too.
Instead of pitching your own agenda, the vision of The Contribution Game is to start by advocating on behalf of others for what they need, and amazing things will happen to you. The game is explained, and then everyone is broken out into groups. The event is exciting, fun, and so much is available to those who are open to it rather than self-focused.
I love what Thach is doing here in the Northwest because that has been my philosophy in connecting others to what they need, and by having that frame of mind – in fact LEADING with that frame of mind, I’ve seen the most wonderful things happen in my own life, as well as those I’ve chosen to be around. It’s great to see this process getting media attention and gaining steam.
Take a look at what The Contribution Game is doing to play big, and anyone can join the online Contribution Networking Community regardless of where you are located.
Thach Nguyen is someone to closely watch – he is playing big, and helping thousands as he works toward his goal of giving back.
