Popular Search Terms of the Week

August 9, 2011

Here are a list of popular search terms on my site from the past week:

  • living intentionally for excellence
  • orrin woodward legitimate or full of shit
  • is living intentionally for excellence a scam?
  • onyx coale divorce
  • leaves monavie for visalus
  • orrin woodward scam
  • why is monavie so expensive

living intentionally for excellence

This search term has increased in recent days. Looks like TEAM members are out proselytizing the word of Orrin Woodward and the Policy Council about the new MLM LIFE business that’s launching on 11/1/11.

If you do a search on living intentionally for excellence, this website comes up among the top matches and points to a post about the costs involved with going all-in with TEAM/LIFE. People will quickly learn that to “succeed” in LIFE, they are going to have to spend hundreds of dollars a month. TEAM members will counter by saying, “How many businesses do you know that have such low overhead?” To them I simply ask, “How much money did you make last month? Subtract your expenses from that number. Is the resulting number negative or positive. For the majority of TEAM members, the answer is the former. Case closed.

is living intentionally for excellence a scam?

Great! People have working brains! They can see that LIFE might be a scam that serves only to inflate Orrin’s ego and wallet. In my opinion, they are correct. TEAM/LIFE is a bad business opportunity and not worth someone’s time, money, and effort. If one wanted to better one’s life in the 8F’s, one can do so by making use of the F that Orrin doesn’t want you to know: FREE. There are plenty of free resources available to aid you in your finances, faith, etc.

orrin woodward legitimate or full of shit

TEAM members would like you to believe that Orrin is a Top 7, 10, 25, 30 Leadership Guru, but in reality he’s been full of it for several years now. Think about it… right up to the month he got terminated from Amway/Quixtar, Orrin was probably telling people that Amway/Quixtar was the best business in the world. His tune changed quickly to, “Amway/Quixtar is an illegal pyramid scheme!”

If you read and listen to Ex-TEAM members, you’ll understand that Orrin has double-crossed and cheated dozens, perhaps hundreds of people, out of their System income. And he’ll do it with a smile on his face and a pat on your back.

orrin woodward scam

I won’t belabor the point. I feel that Orrin Woodward is perpetuating a financial scam on thousands of people. Read the posts on this blog and come to your own conclusions. Unlike Orrin, I encourage you to see both sides of the story. Read the TEAM blogs, visit TEAM members’ websites and decide for yourself.

onyx coale divorce

Onyx Coale is a MonaVie Black Diamond who used to be married to Robert Addie. Robert is nowhere to be found now. This is similar to Maria Carreon, another Black Diamond who used to appear hand-in-hand with her partner/husband on from the MLM stages.

Why is this important? One of the falsehoods that MLMs and their training systems would have you believe is that through building the business, your marriage will become stronger and better than ever before! There’s ample evidence, however, that this is not the case.

leaves monavie for visalus

When the going gets tough, MLM leaders go to another MLM business! Former MonaVie Black Diamond, Rick Gutman, recently left for “greener pastures” at Visalus. He joined within months following the departure of another former Black Diamond, Robert Dean, from Visalus. Dean, you will know, went from Tahitian Noni to MonaVie to Evolv to Visalus Distributor to LIMU within the span of a few years. Musical MLM Chairs!

why is monavie so expensive

You think $40 bottle for juice concentrate is expensive? You’re absolutely right, it is! Someone has to pay for those Black Diamond Mercedes and those MonaVie Jet Credits, after all!

    Good Post. Orrin Woodward doesn’t seem to have a history of ensuring the success of his acolytes.

    It should be crystal clear to anyone who looks objectively at the facts what is going on, Woodward is profiting at the expense of others by selling a lie.

    I know people personally who were all in to TEAM and after many years of little to no progress got out.

    When they were not listening to constant CD’s & books, they saw the reality, and it doesn’t sit well.

    Deception appears to be a bona fide strategy by the leaders in LI(F)E

    Still having trouble with the language, or is it the keyboard? Please try to stay away as you promised you would. Its amazing how people who get involved with team don’t follow through on what they say they are going to do.

    Lyk is yet another example of a Teamer “Living intentionally for excellence”.

    “and grown your e-peen and elitist freaks” -Lyk

    I don’t know what to say to that. Are you calling us e-peens? Can any of the 8 F’s help you with your spelling and name calling problem?

    Lyk. It is extremely frustrating, isn’t it? Reading about potential new “recruits” that are coming on this site and researching TEAM & MonaVIe, discovering the truth about how they are both scams, and sharing this with us. For us it is exhilarating because we realize that our blogging is not all for naught. That we are actually, through the Amthrax, Juice Scam, , Lazy Man & other anti-MLM/scam sites, making a difference in the lives of people by allowing them to KEEP their hard earned cash, to salvage their marriages and relationships with their friends and family. This is an honor & privilege that NONE of us take lightly.

    If you are here to champion the TEAM & MonaVie cause, let me tell you that you are NOT helping them one iota. Coming on here and name calling (although I am not sure that I am insulted with the names, since I don’t know what the hell you are talking about) is not the way to do it. In fact, there is probably no way to do it since you can’t fight the truth.

    I really do feel nothing but pity for you because you will find out that all of these things you are being told by these people on this site, are true. We don’t have to convince you, that is not what we are here for. You will go and let them take your money, your friends and maybe even your family without questioning ANYTHING. You have already abandoned all common sense and critical thinking skills. It is too late for you. We are here to stop others from getting hurt BEFORE they become involved and to give a voice to those who have been devastated by TEAM and MonaVie. If that makes us elitist…so be it…guilty as charged.

    Until @Lyk can string together words into sentences that an English reader can understand, his comments are now being moderated.

    Would love to hear lyk’s explanation (with an interpreter of course, ha) and (lack of) reasoning of how this site is a scam!

    What a joke, looking pretty desperate, think he needs prayers on how to THINK, period!
    Thanks to all of you for the laughs! 🙂

    Wow. I thought TEAM was to not talk negative…that is unless you dont like TEAM. Way to go, nice double standard. I am hearing ALOT of negative talk for TEAM. Interesting.

    Here is why Monavie is so expensive. Look at Orrins and Dallins houses…the TEAM is paying for them.

    Exactly, I have personally seen the control they have over people, plus all the evidence is in the CDS. I think TEAm preys on weak gullible people, selling teh dream and not facts or verifiable proof. At first I was hesitant to call what team does brainwashing, but I am ex military and studied brainwashing and coersion and it is very clear that TEAM practices it. Whats more terrifying is TEAM has a charismatic leader who deamnds your loyatly and that you not citicize him or the TEAM. Add a mysterious purple juice and “tools” and it is eerily similar to Jim Jones.

    Great post and it tells exactly what happens as you move up the ranks or pin levels. All of us here share the same instances, and I could not have said it any better. Keep them coming, and thanks again.

    Right on believed! You’ve explained why it actually got harder and harder for us to “buy in” to everything as we moved up. We moved up SLOWLY because of it. Got passed quite a bit too. THANK YOU GOD!!! If we would have had more success sooner we may not have held on to our critical thinking skills. He had other plans for us and for that we will be eternally grateful!
    I personally struggle with trying to keep my faith at the forefront when it comes to discussing all things Team. Everything associated with it makes me angry to my carnal self’s core. Such a waste on so many levels. My reactions sometimes reflect that. Oops.
    Righteous anger? I think so. Properly expressed? Probably not. Oh well.
    This blight on society called Team needs to be eradicated from the planet. Lets keep doing what we’re doing (hee hee)!
