Network Discussion Forum

The Top Echelon Network Discussion Forum is a place where Network members can help one another through the sharing of information, ideas, and experiences. We believe that this can promote a healthy environment in which all participants can grow, both as Network members and also as recruiters. With that in mind, please keep the topic of your discussions related to either recruiting in general or to Top Echelon specifically (including both the Network and the Big Biller software). Please note that we will use our discretion to delete discussion threads that do not fall into these accepted categories and sub-categories.

We hope that you enjoy the extra dimension of networking and camaraderie that the Discussion Forum offers to Network members. However, we ask that you adhere to the etiquette and protocols that accompany the use of the Forum. With this in mind, please make sure that your posts and comments are:

  • Positive
  • Respectful
  • Open-minded
  • Courteous
  • Constructive

Furthermore, please refrain from submitting posts and comments that include:

  • Offensive and/or inappropriate language
  • Personal attacks
  • Derogatory comments
  • Political views
  • Religious views
  • Personal beliefs

Furthermore, we recommend that you re-read your post and be sure that you have your facts straight, and check your spelling and grammar before hitting the “Submit” button. Remember, if a post or comment is deemed inappropriate, we will remove it.

Now that the etiquette and protocol is out of the way, it’s time for the official Top Echelon Network Discussion Forum Disclaimer:
