That's EXACTLY what I thought of when I saw the site. I didn't want to say anything, because I wasn't sure if I was reading into it too much. Can you say "Team of Destiny," or "Amway?"

no, it's nothing like that, but i can see how it can come off that way.. the basics of it are: pay your annual membership fee, show up to the meeting every thursday, get referrals from the other members, give referrals if you have them, go home, call on the referral, make money. it's not a scam (however, it IS a for profit organization). What you are really paying for is the format- it doesn't allow the group to turn into a 'coffee club', by keeping tight rules on how the meetings are organized.

Hey guys we are getting a lot larger into the fertilization market this year and was wondering if anyone needed someone to subcontract some fertilizing accounts. we will do anything in livonia, northville, novi, canton, plymouth, farmington hills, westland, garden city, dearborn hieghts, wixom and surrounding areas.

also if anyone who does not do fert and does not want to subcontract fert then i will give you a $20 Cash Reward for every person that you reffer to me that ends up signing up for one of our programs.....Not to bad for just having our # sitting on your desk and telling people about us.

thanks a lot guys...I wish everone the best of luck this season with everything there doing.
