John was right – hard work actually paid off in ACN!Screw the haters, this is a legitimate business 🙂 …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.
Additionally, a recent study (see references) has shown that approximately 0.5% (less than 1 in 200) even make their initial 0 investment back.
The problem: certain representatives are so good at convincing you, that everyone believes they will be the 1 out of 200 who actually makes money! Here are a few things that should suggest why ACN is not worth your time or your reputation: Even panhandlers can make a little money by begging on the streets to a bunch of random people who they have never met.
Jim Rohn probably said it best: Service to Many Leads to Greatness.
We want to achieve greatness at the service to many – ACN seems to seek greatness at the expense of many.
There is very limited data on the success rates of ACN Independent Representatives.
Most people are told from the start that less than one in 100 are successful in the business.
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.
but what about the 58 people who signed up and lost money?
Is hard work still a reasonable justification for profits when you have caused 58 people to part with their money by promising them great returns and delivering them nothing?
For example – say John tells Bob that all he has to do to be successful is keep on showing the business to more people and eventually he will be rich – the harder he works the more money he will make.
