In any event, it would appear that anyone who actually “Made it” in ACN (through all that “hard work” promoted by the brain washed reps) only got there by screwing a sizable number of people out of their signup fee.
ACN might make you rich if you work hard enough – but based on the data, it’s going to require that you make a lot of other people poor.
The article seeks only to discuss the strategies and activities of some of the reps within ACN (which often times are likely not in accordance with what ACN the corporation encourages or condones.) The scam works by convincing people that they have are going to make a lot of money in the telecom industry by selling a few video phones, satellite TV subscriptions, cell phones, landlines, etc and encouraging a few of their friends to do the same. Anyone can sell 3 services and we would argue that anyone could also find a friend to do the same.
The issue, in our opinion, comes when you actually try to do it.
Last year, our 150 partner agencies distributed more than 8,200 Christmas Fund cheques, thanks to the generosity of individuals, families, office groups, schools, churches, community organizations, small businesses and large corporations. You may also print this form and mail a cheque or money order to: Montreal Gazette Christmas Fund 1010 Ste Catherine West Suite 200 Montreal, Quebec H3B 5L1 Please make cheques payable to Montreal Gazette Christmas Fund.
Oh wait – but it’s alright because you gave everyone fair warning that making money in this business means hard work and they new from the get-go what the odds were of making money. maybe you did explain this, but 5 minutes after that talk you halled them off to a rah rah pep rally and subjected them to 3 hours of watching people who claim to be rich walk accross stage spouting how great ACN is.
Don’t these 2 actions (telling recruits that ACN is nearly impossible, then flashing riches and success stories in front of them..) seem a little contradictory?
Bob shows the business to 300 people over the course of the year, 60 of them sign up, and 2 of them actually make their initial investment back.
By this time Bob has earned a decent chunk of cash for himself along with some solid residual income.
