How I arrived at this site, I will never know. I have enjoyed reading some of the posted comments by people that really have no idea what ACN is or how they started.
The owners of this company had the exact thing you describe happen to them over 20 years ago by a Long distance carrier named Excell. The company went public and then was promptly sold out from everyone who was a rep and had personal customers, the current founders of ACN included. They later formed ACN as a long distance provider but structured the company so that what happened to them would never happen again.Since 1993 ACN has grown and now operating in 23 countries on 4 continents. Billionaire Donald Trump investigated the company and made an offer to purchase it and he was quickly turned down.
Again another example of the founders protecting their company and the representatives who have helped build it. With the business foresight that many of the people here do not have, ACN then began to add essential services that people are already using everyday any way. With the leverage of a huge company (debt free by the way)they have partnered with some of the largest service providers in the nation and world. These respectable providers would not partner with a company like ACN if they were a scheme or trying to rip off "the little people" as one uninformed individual tried to state.
Sure there are disgruntled people just like in any business but when a company can offer a 94% retention rate on their customers provided to the carriers who have partnered with ACN, the numbers speak for themselves. This is not ACN's percentage numbers but the partner carriers who have given ACN " the ole thumbs up"! Bill Gates, the second richest man on earth, recognizes the power of direct selling and MLM. The third richest man on earth, Warren Buffet, has said and I paraphrase..The deregulation of energy in this nation will result in the biggest shift of wealth for the people who position themselves to take advantage because "Deregulation of Energy" will only happen one time in history.
All of you reading this and those who posted their comments missed the opportunity in the past when Yahoo, Dot Com companies, internet, cellular phones, even Walmart were new on the market and people said "they will never last". Don't you wish you had a chance to go back in time and do something different? I know I do!! I won't miss this next Golden Opportunity that ACN has made available.
I don't have to trust a stranger telling me what kind of money I can make. All I have to do is look over at my Cousin who has been working this business for the last 3 1/2 years, the last 2 of which have been six digit salaries and who has only personally sponsored 36 people into the business as Independent Business Owners. I am his 36th person. But only 1 of over 5200 representatives here in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Romania, and most recently Hungary.
One couple he sponsored into the business has been so successful that they have passed him in position and income! The business is what you make of it. It is your business and you work it how you want. If you want to travel to national and regional events, that is your decision, but in no way is it mandated.
The taxable write offs alone are enough to justify your travel if you so choose. I wish my cousin would have contacted me sooner, but I have done well now in just my first 32 days :) I hope all of you or anyone reading this will give serious thought in joining ACN.
I will quote Donald Trump, who featured ACN twice on his prime time reality show "Celebrity Apprentice", that the ACN opportunity "is a dream come true". Good Luck to all of you!!
