The following is a guest post from a former MonaVie distributor and a former member of TEAM. As editor of the site, I’ve adjusted the formatting slightly for appearance on the site. He previously wrote the article: Ex-MonaVie & TEAM Distributor Explains His Metamorphosis
As a preface, I must say that I love this site. It’s opened my eyes, really, and I’ve met a lot of neat people. Also, I was able to practice my debate skills on several occasions. It’s fun!
That said, my primary purpose on this site is to add value. And so I tell my story about me telling my ex-sponsor that I quit TEAM…
So, I recently told my ex-sponsor that I left TEAM and MonaVie. I told him via email. Here’s what happened.
The Diamond of the TEAM sent me a text message later that day that exactly read “Call Right Back.” My thoughts: “Hell no. I demand a bit more respect if you want to talk to me.”
Then about a week later my sponsor emailed me back and said hes been really busy (he and his wife just had a baby girl), but that he would like to know my reasons for leaving, so he’d call me later in the weekend. A fair request.
No call. Whatever. It’s not my responsibility to let the world why I quit TEAM.
Now I know my group well. Even after I hadn’t talked with any of them for around two months, they didn’t get the hint that I had quit MonaVie and TEAM. In fact, they still invited me to meetings and such.
So I know that if I had talked with my Diamond, he’d have found some way to guilt-trip me or something.
But that’s just the funny thing. While I was with TEAM, I was looking for another way to… you know, actually succeed in MLM, because frankly, the TEAM system sucked. I learned nothing about building a business. What kind of business doesn’t advertise? There’s internal advertisements within distributors, but how do you let everyone else know what you’re doing?
TEAM affiliates, I must know: why is the “business support system” lacking in a FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPT IN BUSINESS? Why does the TEAM system lack information on how to copywrite, or how to excel in PPC advertising, or how to use social networking as an advantage?? WHY? I learned all of that stuff in about a week, and it was FREE, and I can honestly say that I learned more in that week than I did from the expensive-as-hell TEAM system.
There’s something seriously wrong.
Anyway, the system sucks. Yeah. Moving on…
I was reading general MLM tips back then. And what did all of the “MLM gurus” say? Don’t chase.
Why am I suddenly being chased by my ex-team? Either TEAM is incompetent in their own business (i.e. Network marketing), or there must be an ulterior motive… or, maybe TEAM is just a cult…
