If you are not familiar with “The Secret”, it’s a modern redaction of the ancient Law of Attraction. I like the way Andreas Buttler, founder of Spiritologie puts it:
“All – and by that I mean actually just that, namely all – that you perceive and experience is exactly that, which you out of yourself, through your own causal thinking create, and indeed right…now!”
So when I see the Law of Attraction, I cannot forget my studies in Theravada Buddhism.
The first problem with the Law of Attraction is it presumes there is a You. The final realization in Buddhism is annicca, or no-self.
The second problem with the law of attraction is the that your thoughts and feelings create your reality. Well, most people are not conscious of what they are thinking subconsciously. And feelings of any sort show that you have fallen down the 12-dependant links of Origination into the Like-Dislike process.
This is coming from a person who made RC. let’s keep it simple. First you dont get paid on consultants in the first level (MC – marketing consultant). You could have tons of consultants sponsoring tons of consultants and you would earn NOTHING on them, just because Ambit decided that you shouldnt be paid on them.
Next, the people above you get paid more on your business than you do. Consumer choice marketing got that one right and Ambit didnt.
Finally, I will let this ridiculous email directly from Ambit say the rest. I thought a network marketing business was about building walkaway residual income. Well not with Ambit!
Action Required on Your Ambit Business
Dear Terrence Brannon,
We’re glad to have you as an Ambit Energy Independent Consultant. We’ve noticed, however, you haven’t enrolled a new Customer or sponsored a new Consultant for a while. As stated in Section 10.2 of the Ambit Policies & Procedures document:
To remain active, a Consultant must sponsor a new Consultant or enroll a new energy Customer within the preceding four months, or maintain a minimum of 20 pending or energized Customer points. If a Consultant does not sponsor a new Consultant or enroll a new energy Customer in the preceding four months, or maintain a minimum of 20 pending or energized Customer points, the Consultant’s Ambit business will be placed into inactive status and no commission will trigger until the position is reactivated by sponsoring a new Customer or Consultant. This rule does not apply in the Consultant’s first year.
We show that you still have 15 days to maintain your active status. If you have any questions, please reach out to your upline, or call Ambit Energy Consultant Support at (877) 302-6248Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., or Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. CT.
iMarketsLive has one outstanding pro: the CEO is right in the trenches with you and directly available. That being said, having sampled the 3 products of iMarketsLive (live trading room, harmonic scanner and signals), I think they are all good products. However, with the breakup of membership in IML between marketers and customers, I think you would agree that many customers (such as myself) only want the signals. I personally cannot justify paying for services I cannot use. I wrote to support requesting that we be able to purchase trading services on a per-trader basis. They logged the feedback, but of course nothing will change immediately. Because you can only follow 2 traders, I am effectively spending $75.00 per trader. I can find traders for $20 to $50 per trader with stronger records here: https://www.mql5.com/en/signals/mt4
$2,000 in WCM777 – a ponzi scheme that supposedly provided loan money to hotels, etc
$1,000 in Sports Betting with Steve
$300 in Binary Options with Steve via Options Rider
$5,000 is probably lost in Binary Options with CTOptions – a broker called me up and said “we will trade your money for 2 weeks and you can get back your deposit at 2 weeks regardless” – after doing well for 2 weeks they now have done nothing but lose money and make excuses.
$8,000 following Michael Murrihy of Copy Our Trades – details
$500 or so in UInvest
$2,000 lost in London Metals Market – supposedly they did margin trading on Silver… called me up on the phone. First thjng he said was: “I’m checking on the information I sent you” .. and of course he had sent nothing.
