What's Up With The Jealousy?

If you've ever done a search on "Liberty League" on the Internet, you probably have seen ads that say things like "Top Earners are leaving" or "Look at this before considering the League". And I wanted to take a moment to address that issue so you have a clear idea of what's happening.

First of all, I love it. :)

Seriously. When I see that nearly every other direct sales company has reps out there who are spending their dollars on the Liberty League name, it's a clear indication that they believe that we're the top dog in the industry. And we are. But, it also means that everytime they run one of those ads, they're actually increasing the value of our name.

Same thing with my own personal name. I did a search of my own name the other day and see that there are a lot of people who spend a lot of money to bid on my name as a way to advertise their business. This used to aggravate me. But now I find it amusing. When you see someone spending money on my name or Liberty League's name.....well, it's easy to see who the commodity is.

And as for "top earners leaving"? Let's see....I AM a top earner. And I know all the top earners personally. And most of them are having record months in the business. They're not leaving or going anywhere. In fact, I'm trying to remember the last time anyone left LLI who was consistently making $20,000 a month. Maybe I'll think of one but I can't so far.

Besides, use your head. If you were working less than 20 hours a week and earning $50k+ every YOU really think you'd be looking for a new company to join? Nope.

And here's the funny thing about all this jealous advertising: none of these companies are in competition with Liberty League.

Not one.

As far as I know, none of the major direct sales companies are selling anything remotely like the Beyond Freedom Life Achievement course. Or our Liberty and Summit conferences. They're selling travel vouchers. Or financial curriculums. Or resort memberships. Nothing like what we offer at Liberty League.

But, still, I guess it's a little understandable that they'd be jealous.

Take one company, for instance. (I won't mention their name specifically; just that their name includes a green stone and the name of a travel document. :) ) It's no wonder that they feel a bit threatened by what we do.

They just had their annual conferences last week down in Mexico. The attendance?

70 people.

That's right. That's not a typo. They had a whopping 70 people at their conference.

Compare that to Liberty League's events. Over 11,000 people have attended our events in the last 18 months alone.

And I think that's largely because we really do cultivate a culture of community. And it shows.

So, if you're in another company....relax. It's okay. There's plenty of room for everyone. Just focus on building your own product value, offering people a strong pay plan and do the best you can.

No need to be jealous.
