TORONTO, Jan. 15, 2014 /CNW/ - After a six-week virtual showdown that
attracted thousands of Canada's top triangular-shaped multi-level
marketing minds in a winner-take-all challenge, Chelsea Middleton of
Victoria, BC has become Canada's next Skittles® Millionaire.
By mastering the nuances of the Get Skittles rich program, Chelsea virtually-networked her way to winning a haul of one million real Skittles candies. That's equal to about 5,500 full-size bags of Skittles candies or enough to fill an average sized bedroom, if one were so
inclined to try.
Secret of success revealed
While Chelsea has no background or formal education in triangular-shaped
marketing programs, she attributes much of her success to embracing
principles espoused by Danny Falcon and immersing herself in the world
of virtual Skittles candy networking and using her social media sharing expertise.
"Danny always says don't be afraid of greatness," says Chelsea. "In my
mind it was easy to think of Skittles richness as greatness. I just hope I can live up to the strong sense of
character expected of a Skittles Millionaire."
Chelsea hasn't yet decided what do with her Skittles candy riches. "Naturally someone in my position would receive a lot of
investment advice or would be encouraged to give away part of the
winnings," says Chelsea. "I'm going to take some to think about my next
move to ensure I can taste the rainbow for a long time."
