Upline Magazine, which is a publication for network marketing businesses and entrepreneurs, named him "The Greatest Networker in the World." In 1997, he was presented with the Leadership Award and Distributor of the Year Award from the Multi-Level Marketing International Association (MLMIA), which is a not for profit trade organization dedicated to advancing MLM business trades.
Mark Yarnell was the first and only network marketing business professional to become a monthly contributing writer and editor to SUCCESS magazine.

Although Mark Yarnell has been referred to as a network marketing icon, there are controversies surrounding his MLM ventures and a great deal of speculation about the credibility of his network marketing distribution businesses. Some have asserted that the MLM-based business model in and of itself is a scam and that the majority of them are prone to serious misrepresentations. Multi-level marketing (MLM) or “network marketing” is a product-based pyramid scheme or “chain selling” network, in which the goal is for the distributor to become financially independent by selling the company’s products. The majority of people find network marketing attractive due to the opportunity to find independence as a result of being self-employed, in addition to the promise of financial freedom.
There are cases for and against whether MLMs are legitimate or deceptive trades. However, Mark Yarnell has enabled thousands of people to accomplish their goals and attain financial success due to his dedication and the pursuit of the American dream. Through his Holy Grail system, he, alongside his wife, coach others on how to achieve success in network marketing by recruiting and training others, and growing and leading their distribution networks. Yarnell’s many MLM-based business endeavors have unarguably attained both national and international recognition.
