Coal In The Stockings: Is TEAM Moving Backwards?
Saw this comment on the JuiceScam web site regarding purported rough spots for TEAM:
Over the past two or three months TEAM distributors have been hitting “rough spots” (as they call them) in the area of cash flow. Distributors that are “high” and “low” on the pyramid are quitting at a rapid pace in this area. The Woodward’s, Brady’s, and the Marks have all left Flint and are now concentrating on screwing gullible poor people in other states showing the rest of TEAM what they are really like and what real TEAM leaders do. Now that they are gone the true view of TEAM cannot be hidden and is starting to show itself. Theie scam is falling apart. I know of at least three TEAM members that have lost their houses and either them or their wife has had to lower themselves and get real jobs to help with their failing “business”. The TEAM office is cutting hours back and laying workers off. Things are getting so bad that the great Orrin Woodward is making a trip up to try and calm everything down with some of his great pep talks and one liner quotes. So, to your point Switch and Mackwiz I would bet that you will not get a TEAM or Mona Vie distributor to say anything on here expect “Are you hiring?”.
With other TEAM members coming out and commenting about their experiences, it begs the question if there is more dissension and “rough spots” within TEAM than Orrin and the Policy Council leaders are letting on. I for one don’t think it’s the case of a few grumpy ex-distributors but a sign that this pyramidal double sandcastle is about to fall. I am curious to know which high pin distributors are leaving the business due to these cash flow difficulties. With the RVL weight loss products coming soon from MonaVie, are distributors going to be encouraged or coerced to buy not only their weekly cases of MonaVie but also a month’s supply of RVL supplements and shakes? Coupled with System expenses, I can see how this can cause additional problems.
The commenter also mentioned that the TEAM office is cutting hours and laying off staff. On this R3Global blog post, there was a comment about the closing of their Irvine office:
Hello Eileen, the Irvine office of R3Global is closing but R3Global is definitely not closing. The R3Global Jacksonville Headquarters and Store will continue to provide great service to MonaVie distributors worldwide!
A sign of the current economy or a sign that something more is up with two of the larger Systems in North America?
As Anna pointed out on her blog, there is life after Amway (and other MLMs like MonaVie), and there are more opportunities out there to earn additional income beyond what your job can provide.
