When will we ever wake up and educate ourselves? Network Marketers you HAVE to do your due diligence and check on the company owners of any company you are thinking of joining. Doing a Google search is a good place to start. There are a couple of sites that are well worth you bookmarking and using on a regular basis to “keep in the know.” You will have all the latest buzz about new or old companies.
One site that I highly recommend you subscribe to is the free newsletter of MLMWatchDog.com This is a site that is by Rodd Cook. If you Rod Cook reports that a company is or is not legit you can pretty much bank on it as gospel.
Another site we recommend to keep up with MLM news is MLMthewholetruth.com, Lou Abbott, is the founder of the site . The MLM Whole Truth, Network Marketing, it is a Super-Site.
I have heard many say that ALL MLMs are nothing more than a pyramid scheme. WRONG, totally wrong. I have also heard folks say that ALL MLMs are good companies with management teams who are running a tight ship based on integrity, morality and legitimate opportunities. WRONG! While it is true that network marketing is one of the last hopes for many individuals to reach their dreams, too many jump in before knowing about the company they choose to be affiliated with.
As in most areas of life, the whole truth lies somewhere in the middle.
I want you to be well informed because ignorance in the MLM profession can cost you a lot more than money. It can also cost you your friends, family, hopes and dreams.
You need the whole truth about MLM, the companies, the industry, and what it really takes to make significant income with a network marketing business! Our goal here is to bring it to you as effectively and objectively as is humanly possible. ~ Lou Abbott
Just a few weeks ago I wrote concerning the upset with Amway. The ink has not dried and now TVI is making headlines. Bare in mind that it is not just Amway and TVI that are making headlines, MonaVie, in addition to making improper and illegal health claims—from cancer cures to promises of weight loss—was frequently offering trials of acai products, gathering consumer credit card information, and then billing the customer shipping and handling fees to which they had not agreed.
If you read the information below, I believe it will be very clear to you that TVI and it’s owners are not so honest. Some of these guys have done jail time in the past and looks like many will be doing jail time in the not so distant future. Visit the links to get the whole story.

If your company does not have integrity, please turn and run. Run as fast as you can. The best solution would be that you check the integrity of a company with the aid of a mentor or coaching organization, before you join. However most will just jump right in with both feet and then wonder why things are not progressing as they were promised.
If you need help investigating or understanding any part of your company, whether it is the Policies and Procedures, compensation plan or the company owners/management team, be in touch with professionals who can provide you with the needed information so that you can make an informed decision as to whether or not a company is as legit as they present themselves.
There are laws that protect you, however most do not know that they exist. It is very clear that TVI has broken the law with all the illegal income statements being made in some of the videos.
If you want success you will need and want to know if your company is a 5 Pillar company. We can help you find out this information. Start by reading Success in 10 Steps. If you don’t have a copy, be in touch.
