Lo cierto es que uno de los lideres mas fuertes de todo el sistema, el tercero, después de sus fundadores, Dave Wood y Dave Sharpe, ha sido expulsado y esto confundió a muchos miembros del sistema… ¿Por qué una de las personas que mas dinero ha ganado en Empower abandona la plataforma?
What happened? Well, what happened was I held a private webinar which was exclusive toBig Idea Mastermind members ONLY and I made an announcement that there’sa possibility that I MAY need to leave the Network Marketing Industry. Reason for that is because South Dakota (the state where I live) has differentrules when it comes to offering any kind of a business opportunity. So, here’s a quick backstory to make things more clear: Back in 2008 (ish) I was promoting a direct sales company that had a businessopportunity attached to it, and the state informed me that if I was to promotea business opportunity I had to follow the state rules, one of which wasbefore anybody can sign up, I needed to give them a “business proposition”outline, have them keep it for 3 days (I believe) and after that time theycould sign up if they wanted to. Well, due to the fact that the business was online, it was virtually impossibleto run that and keep track of everything. So I said I’m not going to continue with it.
They issued cease and desist. I stopped promoting that business and ventured into straight affiliatemarketing and created my own products to sell. I even moved my entire company to a different state. Everything went quiet …until just recently when I got contacted by the stateagain and they said that I violated cease and desist, which was surprising because: 1. I’m not even promoting a biz opp. According to Empower Network they are NOTclassified as biz opp. (they told me that they are exempt from biz opp. category) 2. I don’t even have a business registered in South Dakota. So lately I was dealing with that a lot. (and it’s a nightmare to tell you the truth.)
Because we’re still in the process and everything is still kind of “up in the air”I wanted to inform the entire BIM team that there’s a possibility that Imay need to leave the industry (if the state issues that order). NOTE: I NEVER said I’m leaving Empower Network. But I find it fascinating how fast people can twist things and spread rumors.. First of all, even though the webinar was intended for BIM members ONLY, somehow non-BIMMERS found their way in and a bunch of members from Empower(including some staff). Almost immediately people started gossiping and saying things like: “OMG! Vick has left Empower!!” “OMG! Empower is in trouble!” “OMG! Vick is launching his own MLM!” (this one cracks me up. lol) When I got online this afternoon, it seemed like a bomb exploded… Rumors and gossips everywhere! People are freaking out…
