More Ex-TEAM Members Commenting About Their TEAM/Woodward Experiences
There weren’t as many dissenting opinions on TEAM and Orrin Woodward when I started this blog a few years ago. That was right around the time when Orrin and his flock moved to MonaVie following his termination from Quixtar/Amway. I suspect that his promises of becoming one million strong and leading people to the promise land of milk, honey and MonaVie haven’t panned out for many. Instead of hiding away in shame, they have come out in full force to comment against Woodward and TEAM.
Here’s another good one from the discussion about the TEAM Tool Trunk:

I ‘was’ a TEAM member. I worked with Mark Crawford, Orrin Woodward and in my business was a policy coucil member (Claude Hamilton). This business is a 100% SCAM. LISTEN TO SOMEONE FROM THE INSIDE. I “invested” thousands of dollars on ‘tools’, seminars, gas, hotel meetings, major seminars, cell phone bills, promotions, monthly incentives to get around my ‘leaders’, miles on my car, tires for my car, fast food (diet programs to lose the weight), promo clothes, promo product, magazines, monthly seminars, books, etc. I reached a high level of success and was invited to attend small meetings with these ‘leaders’ often. This is a SCAM. Its 100% based on taking advantage of ‘relationships’. You will do ANYTHING to maintain the realtionship. Including spending ALL of your savings in the HOPE of this opportunity serving your Dreams. The ‘next person’ will help you achieve your Dreams, and the ‘NEXT’ person will help you achieve your dreams. It NEVER will end. Why do you think the top leaders can never stop??? Why do the top leaders do open meetings constantly??? Becasue they have nothing better to do? becasue they want to meet the people on their team? NO!!! Because they need to continue to MOTIVATE the ‘leaders’ on their team. This business has DESTROYED my family. I’m not a victom, but I’m speaking from A LOT of experience with this ‘opportunity’. People DO NOT realize how much work you ACTUALLY need to do, NIGHT AFTER NIGHT – 6 nights per week, thinking about it – 24 hrs /day to make it work. ITS NOT PART-TIME, ITS A LIFETIME decision and all of those people who disagree, has had NO success in this business. I’ve seen months where I’ve earned 9K dollars in this business… and before you say, there’s proof that it works… whoa, hold up! after 5 years… I accumulated over 90K in DEBT due to this ‘opportunity’. I easily invested 40k per year into building it. The leaders will tell you… there is NO OTHER ‘opportunity’ in the WORLD that will help you achieve your dreams. “If you quit, you will NEVER WIN”. “This opportunity is your ONLY chance of achieveing your dreams”… the REAL reason is because the ‘leaders’ have built their homes with thousands and thousands of people credit card debt. Claude Hamilton’s new home in Nova Scotia is a good example. Orrin’s yacht (bought from Billy Florence) is a good example. This business will only trap you into believing that you need to have a PhD in Self Improvement to advance, and thats because the ‘leaders’ NEED you to continue to purchase new cds/books, OR they don’t advance. The REAL business here is selling tools. NO MORE LIES.
This ex-TEAM member is right about the work involved to keep a “successful” MonaVie business up and running. You can’t simply sit back on the beaches of the world and let the business run itself. It’s good to see more and more people agreeing with the fact that building a business is like building sandcastles.
