The truth is direct selling as a representative for ACN is not easy. But the model that gets everyone excited with 10k a month doesn't work out that way.

For anyone to get paid to their 7th level, they must get 40 customer points. That takes a lot of dedication. Most likely you will have to learn sales techniques and how to direct sell a product. You will need to always have integrity and always put your friends/colleagues needs as a priority if you wish for them to be a lifetime customer.

If you only plan to talk to 20 or so people, then I can't see you achieving success with ACN. You need to talk to many many people and be confident in what you are doing and know which services have competitive advantages.

I have not seen any success with the Videophone

VOIP does not compare with a normal telephone. It uses the internet and will have some issues from time to time.

If you introduce someone to the business as a rep, take responsibility for them and give them dedication to aquire 20 customers.

The easiest way to make any money from ACN is to aquire 50 customer points, then you will receive 10% of your billing. If you have $2000 in billing then you will get $200.

Most of the money you will get from your team is from levels 6 & 7. If your reps on these levels don't have much billing, then $10k a month is just fantasy land. My take is that if you don't teach reps on your 1-5 levels how to get all their customers then how can you expect your 6&7 levels to do it.

This is not easy work, it is quite possible you will introduce what they call a dud (they will post negative stuff all over the web because of their failures).

Direct Selling works if you go about it the right way. Give yourself a chance if you do decide to take on ACN by learning the right way with integrity and wanting to help others. Otherwise you will be likely to fail. Never believe a dodgy rep that it is easy and if someone that you know that has no intregity is trying to introduce you to being a rep, then you will have your work cut out trying to do it the right way with no immediate help

acnhater, you obviously have a grudge with having no success with ACN

If people believe some of your irrational thoughts because of your lack of success, than hard luck to them. Do you real research with direct selling

Here is the first thing I learned about this catchy business "You are in Business for Yourself, but not By Yourself." The meetings and presentations are all the same, yet every time you see them with a Guest you bring along - they motivate you to believe in this business and make the big bucks and also get all of your family involved- "if they love you they will help you out by signing". Not to mention you are also being charged for the meetings you are attending and bringing a guest (a potential partner under you). Once you ask questions that you have about the products you are selling because you want to be more knowledgeable- good luck getting the correct information. Truth is even the people superior to you don't know, from 5-10% to bill it is actually a variable rate of 1-2%. :) Then God forbid someone else from your partners has the same question at a different time- the % savings will change drastically. Eventually they will blame you for not researching your products and playing the excuse/blame game. ACN will love you if you keep recruiting people. They will focus on you because you will be what more or less determines their advancement to the next higher position. Why would someone focus on a person underneath you who truly is stuck and needs help recruiting people and "understanding" this business better when they can focus on someone who is already on the path to success? You can bet all the gold in the world that once you are stuck and if you don't have a great start -" You are in business for yourself and BY YOURSELF". If you are stuck all they will say is you don't believe in yourself enough and you are not following the "program and training correctly".

Somehow many times the presenters of private meetings, or seminars, or whatever it may possibly be will forget to tell you that there is a renewal fee of 149.99$ every year (even if you ask the first time if there is a renewal fee in my experience they said no and then denied that ever happened when approached about it later). The TCs, RDs, RVPs make themselves available for ANY Questions as they say- just ask. In my experience, these are the people who LIED the most and then tried to make it seem like I didn't know what I was talking about , or what my team was talking about.

When approached by a partner underneath me to show their business accounts, like it was shown to 2-3 of my team members, it was a problem for people who might want to ask more questions about it or observe the checks further more. BIG SHOTS usually do not hide anything they claim to be proud of right? So stories never added up and some people seemed way too shady and repetitive at each event attended. When a few people decided to terminate their IBO memberships with ACN- all *** broke loose with phone calls and text messages the size of "Lord of the Rings" novels to assure me they respect my decision... but i am making the BIGGEST mistake of my life and that I have had great potential and I was very close to achieving great things and getting the next bonus. How can I do that?! :))

After explaining all the lies that this person was caught in - he claimed that was not true and in fact I was looking for excuses to call him a liar. Then he said my family did not ask him any of the questions about the bills and accounts and he can prove us all wrong... Why now?! When the majority of my team understood how money thirsty and desperate these people are and how they put up a facade to trick you into joining so you bust your butt to actually first help them succeed to the higher level and make some bonuses so they can cover their expenses. Because residual is worth pennies, and small bucks unless you breathe, eat, and see only ACN. After seeing that nobody wants to rejoin even after the RVPs called directly,then the game plan changed - it was time for them to try and convince your best friends and family how you are trying to rob them of their money and brainwash them based off of reviews of people that were never successful in this business and how they will work with you directly to prove them wrong and show them big money... Ahhh what a load of stinky ***! :) Just 40 hrs ago that same person was saying how they wouldnt care much if people who didnt do much quit...well once a lot of people quit they will go after the weakest links to try and convince them otherwise. And that is why ACN is not only the potential destroyer of your financial freedom and dreams for which you join , but also the VERY possible destroyer of many dear friendships and family ties- depends on how far you allow yourself to get sucked into this madness. I for one, was lucky to be smarter and EXIT on time with no big loss. If you are a selfish crook not giving a *** about your family, friends, and other people - you might be the right person for this FAKE independent business that you can't even sell when you decide to quit. I sure hope, you get a good laugh out of ACN as I did along with my partners. It is truly a priceless circus -if you identify the signs in the beginning. An RVP and so on will not call anyone to beg them to stay and not spread *** about ACN (even though they don't need your money and people cause they have a gazillion people under them) if that person and company was as well off financially as they present themselves and ACN to be. So... if you want to waste your time and money and relationships with people - don't think twice. Fall into this pool of non-stop brainwashing and motivation towards a loong road of *** and misery as I see it to be. :) Cheers to all of those smart people out there that realize what a big joke ACN is along with all the posers and actors in it serving as role models to those joining. :) I hope the "big fish" can sleep at night for lying to so many innocent people. But then again, it will all come back to them in one form or another.

Former rep speaks out, you obviously were introduced into a group of dodgy sleazy and encouraged to bend the rules. There are thousands of reps that succeed.

It's a shame that you think that if you don't lie and decieve then you'll have no chance at all in succeeding.

It's a real shame because the main reason that people succeed in direct selling is when their customers like and trust them. Not everyone will have a warm market where people like and trust them.

So you failed at this, no need to call direct selling a scam.

"You will need to always have integrity..."

That is not correct based on my experience in ACN. You are constantly encouraged to bend the rules and do whatever it takes to make contacts, get recruits to meetings, and sign up customers.

Even the sleaziest most unscrupulous ACN reps fail, not to mention the righteous ones. If you don't lie and deceive then you'll have no chance at all in succeeding in ACN. The opportunity just isn't that great, and it never works out the way they say it will. Without lies, all you have is a $500 tax right off.

No hope for financial success. ACN is a scam folks.
