Vitel Wireless Partners with Major Investment Firm

 

Gries Investment Fund has had an instrumental role in launching several new companies within the Direct Sales Industry, backing expansion efforts, and providing both short and long term financing for many successful companies. The extensive knowledge and resources that Gries Investment Fund can provide will secure Vitel’s position as a major player in the industry and sends a strong message that they are finalizing long term viability plans and targeting 2013 as a breakout year for the young company.

 Vitel attributes its success to its down to earth, grass roots, approach that focuses on the Independent Business Owner and products you know, trust and use daily.

When asked about this partnership, COO, James Pearson stated, “Vitel is here to stay and wants to change the lives of many for years to come.

Vitel began rebuilding this system in the last quarter of 2012 and following extensive end-to-end testing the new system deployed on March 15th, 2013. Timing is perfect for the re-launch of the system with the Company’s new offering which is a $35 unlimited talk, text, and web service.

Compared to most competitors, Vitel chose to offer the benefit of having many commonly recognized prepaid and post-paid carrier plans available to their Independent Business Owners and their customers. For the customer this means greater flexibility to remain with their current “proven” service provider or select from one of the many other carriers who may offer the best choice for their coverage needs.”

Jason Silverthorn – ViSalus Hits $1 Million in Earnings

 

Jason Silverthorn – ViSalus 2 star Ambassador from Temecula, California, USA has hit the $1 million mark in combined earnings.

Jason:

I’m a work from home dad of 4 kids under 11. My wife Amber and I have lived in Temecula, California since 2003. Growing up in San Diego and watching my parents own and operate Lemon Grove Motorcycles, I subconsciously saw the ups and downs with running a small business. E

ven though it was a giant “hobby” store, I learned so much from my parents about working with people, relationships, and dealing with the economy. When it came down to my parents retiring and wanting me to take over their business, there was a huge part of me that wanted nothing to do with owning a business period. Who knows why, but it was not what I wanted.

Even though my parents were able to retire at a decent age, it was not my cup of tea. I had worked for them, a couple of banks as a teller, and was recruited to the mortgage side. But when the person I worked with retired, my position was terminated. I had a choice; I could either go back to school, or be a receptionist. I chose school! Ha-ha. After 2 semesters of electives, because the college messed up my transcripts, I decided to go to the San Diego Golf Academy. 16 months of chasing my passion and soaking up the sun while playing golf 4 times a week.

When I picked up my first golf club at 21, I sold all my motorcycles and started on my new passion. I started Golf College as a 27 handicap and graduated at just over a 1 handicap. I received the most improved player of my class and wanted to keep it up and go pro. During that time, I was opening and closing the driving range practicing or playing all day every day. I was serious and was not going to let anyone tell me I could not do it. Shortly thereafter Amber and I started a family. When my family was started, responsibility became my first priority. I put my dream on hold because family was the most important thing. I started back into mortgage and real estate and we moved to Temecula.

We started our own mortgage and real estate company and quickly grew it to 45+. As we were growing our family and company, we started to hit a wall in 2005. We were making great money, but I spent 75+ hours a week being a slave at my own business. Amber felt like a single mom with zero support, our marriage was rocky, I watched my kids grow up in pictures, and my health was not a priority. Things needed to change, but did not know where to find the time or what to do.

When Visalus happened on our lap late 2005, I saw this as an opportunity to make a change and get my health and time back. Not knowing that mortgage industry would not be around in a couple years, we made a decision to start a ”plan B” but never thought we would’ve needed it. We were earning close to half a million a year with our company. In the 2 years to follow, we took a 90% pay cut from our mortgage career. If it wasn’t for Visalus, we would have been a family of 6 that would’ve been forced to move in with my parents and start all over.

Our thought was that Visalus was our “plan B”, but it quickly turned into our “plan A”. We hit the top of the compensation plan in May of 2008 without any prior experience in this industry. Visalus has been the most stable, secure, exciting business we have ever been part of. Visalus was my catalyst to better health, better relationships, more time freedom to spend with my kids, and now, financial freedom.

Being a work from home dad, my days include getting the kids ready for school, packing lunches, dropping them off, working from home, not being forced to clock in or out or having to shave or look a certain way, no commuting or sitting in L.A. traffic, working out from home, maybe some laundry between calls, building teams, marketing body by vi, driving a free black BMW for life, picking up the kids from school, watching our kids ride their bikes, making dinners, goofing off with the kids, a little Nintendo Wii here and there, not having to send our kids to daycare, date nights with my wife, traveling to places I have never been, meeting unbelievable people I would’ve never met, soccer on the weekends, and actually being around my family while I work. I never knew something like this existed! But we are extremely excited to what the future holds and thankful we were willing to do something different for a completely different lifestyle.

ViSalus Launches in the United Kingdom

 

Former Agel UK Diamonds Peter & Hilary Webb are headhunted to help launch Visalus Global Expansion into the UK.

Peter & Hilary Webb who 7 years ago successfully launched Agel into the UK and European Marketplace quickly became the very first and currently only UK Agel Diamonds, have been headhunted to help launch Visalus and The Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge into the UK.

Nick Sarnicola ( Visalus Co-Founder and Top Earner ) will be working directly with Peter & Hilary Webb to help grow the market quickly and bring the #1 Health and Fitness Challenge platform to the UK.

Peter said “Having watched the incredible growth over the last 3 years that Visalus has had in the USA & Canadian markets, Hilary and I feel privileged to help bring this incredible Company and opportunity to the UK”.

Due to launch in the UK on April 15th The Body By Vi Challenge is an innovative solution to getting into better shape, no matter if you want to slim down, tone up or build muscle. The fact is that 63% of people in the UK are overweight or obese making the UK the 3rd worst Country right behind USA and Mexico. So it makes absolute sense that a Company committed to fighting the global obesity epidemic should choose the UK as there next expansion plans.

Combining ViSalus life transforming products along with ViSalus online and offline support tools. The ViSalus Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge is a nutritional program with recipes, menu plans, exercise videos and programs, along with extensive online community support. If you’d rather not get weighed in public, eat expensive foods, or watch endless exercise videos that aren’t targeted to your specific needs, then this is the program for you.

Visalus has become one of the fastest growing companies in the United States and Canada in the last few years and are focused to making a huge impact on the health and prosperity of people in the United Kingdom.

Be Warned Of Leveraged Profit Sharing Programs

 

Kevin Thompson – the MLM Attorney:

When Zeek Rewards got shut down, the consumers really lacked an understanding of the problems. As I wrote about in the past, this ignorance in the market was largely our fault. Our “self-regulated” industry failed them. The first one is on us. But with this new breed of Leveraged Profit Sharing Programs (“LPSP”), it’s now on you.

Remember Zeek? It’s been close to eight months since they were shut down. If you will recall, Zeek Rewards was nailed by the SEC mainly for operating as a pyramid scheme and for selling unregistered securities i.e. encouraging passive investments, hinting at lucrative returns on the money, etc.

Zeek Rewards taught its participants and the entire network marketing industry a very painful lesson: promises of passive return on investment + a network marketing compensation plan = hurricane of pain.

But it’s not an investment…

Sure, I know the counter-argument. People argue that Zeek never “asked for investments.” Instead, they were selling “sample bids” (wink, wink), which led to activity on the website, which led to profit, which led to profit distributions to the investors / distributors. Curiously though, the vast, overwhelming, ridiculous majority of those sample bids (99%+) were never used, which means the program was just cycling money from older investors to newer ones. While I know the counter-argument, it’s flat out silly. And those of us in the industry, we knew it and we said nothing. We let Zeek take advantage of the credibility we all work hard to create.

I’m getting to the point…

Zeek Rewards was like cocaine for a number of the net winners. They’re now hooked on the high. They want more. As the air in Zeek is deflated, reality is starting to sink in for people: Zeek Rewards is never coming back. With that in mind, it has led to the next generation of high yield investment MLM.

I’m referring to these sorts of programs in the industry as “Leveraged Profit Sharing” programs. High Yield Investment Programs, or HYIPs, is a phrase commonly used; however, it’s easy for LPSPs to distinguish themselves from HYIPs because there’s “no investment.” I think LPSP is a better fit because it embraces the very terms they promote in their plans: profit sharing. And it’s precisely how they work in practice. The companies leverage the investments made by participants to grow the company. With growth, comes profit. And with profit, comes distributions to the investors i.e. leveraged profit sharing.

The point…

At some point, consumers have to accept responsibility for their financial decisions. Zeek brought painful clarity on the subject. And it was widely publicized. Perhaps I live in a fantasy world, but I think consumers should now know better. When participants are asked to fund the growth of a company by way of buying “samples” for anonymous, no-name customers, and when they’re promised a return based on company profits, they should simply know better! In this Information Age, where information is readily available on computers and cell phones, the excuses are starting to shrink. LPSPs would cease to exist if they lacked support from participants.

Today…

Where there was 1, now there are many. This is just an example. Recently, I’ve heard of “investor co-ops” where people pool money together and invest in multiple LPSPs. It functions sort of like of a mutual fund, but for…other kinds of programs. The companies they were allocating investor dollars: Banners Brokers, Profit Sunrise and GoFun Places. Why would people pool resources and passively invest in these programs? Because…well, you can decide for yourself. And these are just a few. If you get burned in a LPSP, do not blame the consultants or any vendors.

Blame yourself. The information is out there. And by the way, the idea of “invest now, get out fast” might come back to bite you. There are a number of net-winners in Zeek that are currently negotiating deals with the receivership to pay back their gains. The other net-winners, the ones that are hoping for the clouds to clear, they’re about to be jack hammered in a whirlwind of litigation.

Think about it.

ViSalus Reports Q4 -2013 Revenue of $127 Million

 

ViSalus Growth Largely Offsets Declines at PartyLite and Miles Kimball Blyth Also Provides 2013 Earnings Guidance

GREENWICH, Conn., March 14, 2013 /Blyth, Inc. (NYSE:BTH), a direct to consumer company and leading designer and marketer of health and wellness products, candles and accessories for the home sold through the direct selling and direct marketing channels, today reported earnings for the fourth quarter and full year. 

2012 Fourth Quarter Performance

Net Sales for the three months ended December 31, 2012 decreased approximately 4% to $331.0 million from $345.5 million for the comparable prior year period.  Sales growth of ViSalus, as compared to the prior year period, was more than offset by declines at PartyLite and Miles Kimball Company.  

Commenting on fourth quarter accomplishments, Robert B. Goergen, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer noted, “Blyth achieved two significant objectives at the end of last year that positions it for profitable growth as a direct-to-consumer marketing company.  First, the sale of Sterno completed our transformation from a multi-channel company to one focused on the direct selling and direct marketing channels of distribution.  Second, we arrived at a new, long-term understanding with the ViSalus Founders that preserves their ability to remain equity participants in the business as we work together to achieve global market penetration.”

Turning to the fourth quarter financial results, Mr. Goergen noted that, “ViSalus’s fourth quarter sales, at $127 million, represented 29% year-over-year sales growth. Moreover, its full year sales were $624 million versus $230 million in 2011.  That ViSalus achieved such significant market penetration highlights the opportunity in opening additional markets outside of North America, beginning in 2013, following the lead of many global health and wellness competitors.”

Regarding the PartyLite and Miles Kimball Company businesses, Mr. Goergen added, “We continue to invest in our Candles & Home Decor and Catalog & Internet businesses in order to attain long-term sales and earnings growth.”

Blyth’s operating profit for the fourth quarter was $39.8 million this year versus $34.5 million last year and includes the following pretax items:

  • A ViSalus Equity Incentive Plan (EIP) charge of $2.2 million this year and $11.6 million last year related to the EIP that was terminated in January 2013, and
  • Restructuring charges of $1.0 million for PartyLite this year and $3.0 million last year.

Excluding the impact of these charges, Blyth’s operating profit would have been $43.0 million this year versus $49.1 million last year. 

Net Earnings attributable to Blyth, Inc. for the fourth quarter were $27.8 million compared to $25.6 million for the prior year.  Diluted Earnings Per Share attributed to Blyth, Inc. for the fourth quarter were $1.63 this year compared to $1.54 last year.  This year’s Diluted Earnings Per Share include:

  • Impairment of Midwest-CBK note receivable charge of $0.06 this year,
  • ViSalus EIP charge of $0.06 this year versus a $0.22 charge last year,
  • PartyLite restructuring charges of $0.04 this year versus $0.12 last year, and
  • A gain of $0.36 from discontinued operations versus $0.07 last year.

Excluding these unusual items and discontinued operations, Normalized Earnings Per Share for the fourth quarter were $1.42 this year versus $1.80 last year.

In December 2012, Blyth increased its ownership in ViSalus from approximately 73% to approximately 81% at a cost of $60 million.  As part of that transaction, Blyth essentially modified its obligation to purchase the remaining 19% interest in ViSalus that it did not already own through the issuance by ViSalus of redeemable convertible preferred stock.

This December 2012 transaction necessitated a revaluation of ViSalus which was made through an independent appraisal that took into account a number of factors, including recent declines in public direct selling company multiples.  The revaluation resulted in a fair market value of ViSalus which required a non-cash adjustment of $34 million, or $1.99 on a Diluted Earnings Per Share basis.  As a result, after giving effect to the exchange of redeemable preferred stock in excess of fair value, Net Earnings Attributable to Blyth, Inc. Common Stockholders in the fourth quarter of 2012 is a loss of $6.2 million, or a loss of $0.36 per share.

In connection with the issuance of the redeemable convertible preferred stock, the Company has recorded an obligation on its balance sheet, identified as “Redeemable Preferred Stock”, for $147 million.  The establishment of this instrument resulted in a charge against equity during the fourth quarter of 2012 of $75 million, which consists of the difference between the September 30, 2012 Redeemable Non-Controlling Interest balance of $132 million, less December’s payment to increase ownership from 73% to 81% of $60 million, and less December’s establishment of Redeemable Preferred Stock of $147 million.

Mr. Goergen further noted, “We must not lose sight of the fact that Blyth has invested $145 million in its 81% stake in ViSalus, a company that achieved 2012 sales growth of 171% in North America, growing from $230 million in 2011 to $624 million.  Moreover, ViSalus contributed $97 million in operating profit to Blyth’s 2012 results, a nearly three-fold increase over the $35 million earned in the prior year. We are delighted with this record of achievement and look forward to ViSalus’s continued contribution to Blyth’s sales and earnings as it enters its first market outside North America in 2013.”

During the fourth quarter, the Company repurchased 411,336 shares, or approximately 2.4% of its 17 million shares outstanding.  The Company has 1.6 million shares remaining in its existing repurchase authorization.

Due to the change in the Company’s fiscal year from January 31st to December 31st, which was effected in the prior year period, it should be noted that fourth quarter and full year results for 2011 are unaudited and presented for comparative purposes.  In addition, due to the divestiture of Sterno in October 2012, its financial results, including a gain on sale of $5.5 million, are classified in Discontinued Operations for all reported periods. 

The summary reconciliation of unaudited Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) earnings and earnings per share to Non-GAAP earnings and earnings per share presented in the attached table and the discussion of segment operating profit excluding certain items are included as additional references to assist investors in analyzing the Company’s performance and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.  In presenting comparable results, the Company discloses non-GAAP financial measures when it believes such measures will be useful to investors in evaluating the Company’s underlying business performance.  Management internally reviews the results of the Company excluding the impact of certain items as it believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful for evaluating the Company’s core operating results and facilitating comparison across reporting periods.

2012 Fourth Quarter Segment Performance

In October 2012, the Company completed the sale of its Sterno subsidiary for $23.5 million in cash, completing Blyth’s strategic transformation from a multi-channel company to a direct-to-consumer company focused on the direct selling and direct marketing channels of distribution.  As such, Blyth has realigned its segments to reflect this transformation.  Segment results have been restated for all periods shown to reflect the new segment structure.  The new segments and related businesses are:

  • Health & Wellness – ViSalus
  • Candles & Home Decor – PartyLite
  • Catalog & Internet – Miles Kimball Company

In the Health & Wellness segment, fourth quarter net sales increased 29% to $126.6 million versus $98.5 million for the same period last year.  ViSalus had approximately 76,000 independent Promoters at the end of the fourth quarter versus 59,000 Promoters on board at the end of the prior year’s fourth quarter.  Health & Wellness fourth quarter segment operating profit was $8.7 million this year versus $2.7 million last year.  Excluding the EIP charges of $2.2 million this year and $11.6 million last year, and allocated corporate expenses of $2.4 million this year and $1.8 million last year, fourth quarter operating profit for ViSalus was $13.3 million this year versus $16.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.  The decrease in 2012 in ViSalus’s operating profit was due primarily to the increase in infrastructure, including staffing, an expanded call center, enhanced information technology systems, the investment in global expansion and expanded leased office space necessary to support the North American business.

Ryan Blair, Chief Executive Officer of ViSalus, commented, “2012 was a year of growth and building for ViSalus during which we fortified our infrastructure to support the continued growth opportunity in North America and as we prepare for expansion into Europe.  I am incredibly proud of what our team accomplished this year and very optimistic about the long-term prospects of our direct-to-consumer network marketing model, which we can now support very capably due to the investments we’ve made, including adding approximately 300 new staff members, new leased facilities to house our growth and new information systems and technology.”

Candles & Home Decor sales were $160.1 million in the fourth quarter, versus $195.5 million for the same period last year, a decline of 18%.  This decline reflects increased competition from both retail establishments selling candles and other direct selling companies competing for consultants, as well as the soft consumer market worldwide.  PartyLite’s European sales during the quarter declined 11% in local currency, or 14% in U.S. dollars.  PartyLite’s European active independent sales Consultants totaled over 30,000 at year-end versus approximately 34,000 last year.  PartyLite’s U.S. sales declined 34% versus the prior year period.  Active U.S. independent sales Consultants totaled approximately 15,000 at year-end versus approximately 19,000 last year.  At PartyLite Canada, sales declined 24% in local currency and 21% in U.S. dollars during the quarter, with active independent sales Consultants down 12% to approximately 4,700 at year-end 2012 from 5,300 at year-end 2011.

Fourth quarter operating profit for the Candles & Home Decor segment was $29.9 million versus $28.8 million in last year’s fourth quarter.  Excluding restructuring charges of $1.0 million this year and $3.0 million last year, and allocated corporate expenses of $1.6 million this year versus $3.6 million last year, PartyLite’s operating profit was $32.5 million this year versus $35.4 million last year, largely due to the favorable impact of restructuring and cost savings initiatives which nearly offset the sales decline.

Commenting on the performance of the Candles & Home Decor segment, Robert B. Goergen, Jr., Chief Operating Officer of Blyth and President, PartyLite Worldwide said, “Despite the year-over-year sales decline, PartyLite’s operating profit benefited from cost savings related to the streamlining of its operations and other overhead reductions as we ‘right-sized’ the organization to position it for continued profitability in 2013 and beyond.”

In the Catalog & Internet segment, fourth quarter net sales declined 14% to $44.3 million versus $51.5 million last year due to the continued trend of soft sales of general merchandise.  This was partially offset by the strong sales of health and wellness products which continue to achieve double-digit growth through the health and wellness catalog, Easy Comforts®.  Fourth quarter operating profit in this segment was $1.1 million this year versus $3.1 million last year.  Excluding allocated corporate expenses of $0.5 million this year and $1.2 million last year, Miles Kimball’s operating profit was $1.6 million this year versus $4.3 million last year.  This decline was due to lower sales and the margin impact from holiday season free shipping promotions.

2012 Full Year Performance

Net Sales for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased 34% to $1.2 billion versus $0.9 billion for the prior year.  Operating profit for the year was $84.6 million this year versus $32.2 million last year and includes the following pretax items:

  • ViSalus EIP charge of $11.3 million this year and $27.1 million last year,
  • Fees of $4.7 million related to the ViSalus proposed public offering, which was withdrawn in September 2012,
  • Catalog & Internet segment charge for an intangible impairment of $0.8 million, and
  • Restructuring charge of $3.2 million for PartyLite this year versus $3.0 million last year.

Excluding the impact of these charges, operating profit was $104.6 million this year versus $62.3 million last year.  The increase in operating profit is due to strong growth at ViSalus.

Net Earnings attributable to Blyth, Inc. for the full year were $44.0 million compared to $13.8 million for the prior year.  Diluted Earnings Per Share attributable to Blyth, Inc. were $2.55 this year compared to $0.83 last year. Earnings per share include:

  • Impairment of Midwest-CBK note receivable charge of $0.06 this year,
  • ViSalus EIP charge of $0.32 this year versus a $0.45 charge last year,
  • Fees incurred by ViSalus related to their withdrawn public offering of $0.12 this year,
  • Catalog & Internet intangible impairment charge of $0.03 this year,
  • PartyLite restructuring charges of $0.12 both this year and last year, and
  • Income from discontinued operations of $0.45 this year and a loss of $0.37 last year.  

Normalized Earnings Per Share for the full year before the aforementioned charges and discontinued operations were $2.75 this year versus $1.76 last year, an increase of 56%.  After giving effect to the non-cash adjustment of $1.97, resulting from the exchange of redeemable preferred stock in excess of fair value, described above, the Diluted Earnings Per Share attributable to Blyth, Inc. Common Stockholders was $0.58.

The sum of the individual and segment amounts may not equal the reported totals for the quarter and full year for Blyth overall due to rounding.

2013 Earnings Guidance

The Company also announced that 2013 Diluted Earnings Per Share attributable to Blyth, Inc. are expected to be $1.70 – $1.85 compared to 2012 Diluted Earnings Per Share attributable to Blyth, Inc. of $2.55.  The year-over-year comparison reflects an anticipated overall single digit sales decline as well as projected investment spending in 2013 that is essential to achieve the Company’s long-term growth objectives.  Moreover, the Company expects a slight operating loss in the first quarter of 2013 due to a larger decline in year-over-year sales in the first quarter than for the full year.  In addition, the Company will see the impact of investment spending begun last year to support Blyth’s global growth as well as to sustain the overall health of the operations in each of its three segments.  Cash flow from operations for 2013 is expected to be approximately $85 million, an over 60% increase when compared to the approximately $52 million generated in 2012.  This increase is primarily due to improvements in working capital, the anticipated settlement of a legal proceeding and non-cash charges associated with management equity incentive plans.  Capital spending is anticipated to be relatively flat year-to-year at $19 million.

Blyth, Inc., headquartered in Greenwich, CT, USA, is a direct to consumer business focused on the direct selling and direct marketing channels.  It designs and markets health and wellness products, candles and accessories for the home through the direct selling channel, utilizing both the network marketing and home party plan methods.

Xocai Announces New Cash Call Incentive

 

MXI Corp is an innovative company.  The person driving the company is owner, Andrew Brooks. As a creative executive, it’s important to Andrew to develop incentive programs that are both performance based that also are geared to reward the correct network marketing behaviors (sponsoring and securing customers). 

While earning two Bachelor’s degrees from the University of Calgary, Andrew started his entrepreneurial career founding his 1st company distributing sugar-free products. While Andrew was focusing on diabetic-friendly products, a new trend of low-carb dieting was introduced; a lifestyle very similar to that of a diabetic. Already a successful entrepreneur, Andrew’s dream was to obtain an MBA from Harvard. Included in his Harvard application was a business plan to merge his diabetic-friendly company into the low-carb lifestyle.

In 2000, Andrew made the decision to leave his Harvard MBA opportunity to implement his business plan and co-found Pure De-lite® Products, Inc., a sugar-free, low-carb chocolate company. Due to the popularity of the low-carb lifestyle, Pure De-lite® generated over $300 million dollars in sales and was retailed nationwide in stores such as Wal-Mart®, Walgreens®, and GNC®.

The founders of Pure De-lite® discovered that if chocolate was processed properly it contains the highest levels of antioxidants. In May of 2005, Andrew helped introduce the world’s 1st Healthy Chocolate, Xoçai. Rather than staying within their retail roots, Xoçai would be sold directly to their consumers and provide independent distributors with an income-generating opportunity. As Founder and Chief Operating Officer, Andrew’s vision is to transform and improve health worldwide while providing a long-term and socially responsible business opportunity.

Winners of the Team Elite Development Pool Bonus get a personal phone call from MXI Founder, Andrew Brooks.

Xocai offers Healthy Chocolate as both a life-changing healthy alternative for consumers and a lucrative business opportunity for distributors. For more information on Xocai, or to try truly HEALTHY Chocolate for the first time, please visit: www.Xocai.com

Fortune Hi Tech Case – FTC Passes on Scalpel, Goes for Sledgehammer

 

The MLM Attorney, Kevin Thompson has published a great review about this case:

Kevin:

Since the lawsuit was filed, I’ve had a lot of time to study the FTC’s arguments against FHTM. In particular, I closely studied the FTC’s expert report prepared by Dr. Peter Vander Nat. The FTC’s entire case hinges on the validity of Peter Vander Nat’s report.

In the lawsuit, the FTC passed for the scalpel and picked up the sledgehammer. In summary, they’re no longer relying on Vander Nat’s convoluted math formula, which I discussed in my last article regarding the FTC’s economist.

If you’re following the news with Herbalife, I think you’ll find this next point interesting.

Currently, there’s a lot of bickering back and forth between MLM proponents and critics alike over the interpretation of Vander Nat’s formula. People are discussing how Herbalife stacks up to the standard. With one word, I can put the entire debate to rest for both sides.

Are you ready for it?

The word is:

IRRELEVANT

The formula is irrelevant. In Vander Nat’s lengthy declaration used against Fortune Hi Tech, the formula is never mentioned. Not once. Why? The answer is obvious. The FTC is distancing itself from it because the formula is too broad and too confusing. The FTC’s case against BurnLounge (sued in 2006) is jeopardized due to the ambiguity of this standard. The case is currently under appeal. The main source of contention: Vander Nat’s qualification as an expert. Vander Nat had never studied an MLM that he concluded was legal. Where’s the fairness in using an objective standard to measure right from wrong when you never find anything right? There’s no wisdom in designing a water-filter if there’s no opportunity for water to pass through.

Sledgehammer

In his declaration, Vander Nat opines and argues that FHTM was operating as an illegal pyramid scheme. Instead of relying on his formula, he bases his finding on a few assumptions. Those assumptions are all addressed in Charles King’s declaration (available below). Dr. King was retained by FHTM as its expert in their effort to dissolve the injunction. Out of Vander Nat’s assumptions, there’s one that should be concerning for all people in the network marketing industry: commissions triggered via internal consumption are “recruitment bonuses.” In other words, rewards triggered via distributor consumption are illegal. This argument represents a dangerous and irresponsible strategy employed by the FTC. In one of the footnotes in his declaration, Vander Nat writes, “…I also understand that the ultimate users of the products – for purposes of the Koscot test – are people who are not participants in the business venture.” With this framework, he pulls out all revenue garnered from distributor consumption. He then compares the money left over (not much) with the money paid out in bonuses. He then concludes that the pay plan is underfunded and relies on “recruitment bonuses” to survive. Charles King sums it nicely when he writes:

Since Vander Nat is not counting commissions generated via internal consumption, it creates the impression that the plan lacks sufficient revenue from product sales to support the commissions. He treats the difference between revenue available for commissions and the amounts paid as recruitment bonuses. Using his own definition of “end user,” he’s able to dramatically shrink the commission pot; thus, creating the false impression that the Commission Plan is insufficient and underfunded.

Optimal Scenario

Vander Nat also relies on an economic theory known as “Optimal Scenario.” Using the Optimal Scenario framework, Vander Nat assumes that if EVERYONE were to hit the high levels in the FHTM business, the plan would be underfunded. The reality: not everyone hits the levels nor does everyone try. While Vander Nat acknowledges that breakage exists (money in the plan from un-earned commissions), he ignores it completely. In network marketing, the participants operate with various goals. There are some that want to earn a few hundred dollars a month, some do it for social reasons, some want to save money on product, some are supporting a friend or relative, etc. They’re not all trying to “max out” the pay plan. This assumption was faulty and led to a faulty conclusion.

What does all of this mean?

Change is coming. Stay tuned. In 2004, the FTC said that the amount of internal consumption is inconsequential for pyramid scheme analysis. Based on their recent case against FHTM and various posts on their website, the FTC appears to be back-tracking. It’s going to take strong leadership to steer this conversation in a favorable direction for the industry. And strong leadership requires that we at least acknowledge the areas where we’re weak. Cultures of hype need to stop. Product value matters. Without question, the industry is going to look different within 18 months. How different? We’ll see.

John Sachtouras – Organo Gold Hits $695,000 Per Month

 

John and Blanca Sachtouras are living in Richmond, Texas, USA and recently moved to a 7,058-square-foot house. John and Blanca are with Coffee Direct Seller Organo Gold since June 2009 and are top earners both in the company as in the Direct Selling industry.

It only took them 90 days to reach Diamond Consultants, one of the top positions within the compensation plan, Blue Diamonds in 6 months, Black Diamonds in 15 Months and Crown Diamonds in 2011. Their confirmed earnings are as of February 2013 $695,000+ per month and they are ranked in the top 10 in the Hall Of Fame of 8,500+ Top Earners in the world of Network Marketing.

John: I have being involved with the industry of Network Marketing for the last 22 years and I have worked with 11 different companies marketing vitamins, natural juices, weight loss, household products, and electronics. First time I found a company with a product that requires no explanation; no training, no instructions and that millions of people around the world consume it multiple times a day! I found a goldmine in a cup of coffee!

First time in 22 years in MLM I can honestly say I found a home with Organo Gold. I was searching for so many years to find an honest and unselfish leadership that will help my organization and myself grow with integrity and respect.  I am very blessed to have Holton Buggs, who is my personal sponsor, mentor, but most important to have him as the best friend I ever had
