Well on Friday night all TLC consultants got an email telling them that TLC as they knew it was gone. Basically it was no longer a MLM company that would no longer have consultants and no more downline commission. And this would start when; in a month or a couple of weeks. NO it starts as of that moment that they sent out the email. So typical of the way the company does things. They don't want to be there at the office to field any upselt phone calls. TLC will now be some sort of buying club. Basically a retail e-store :like a few of my fellow TLC friends had been thinking they might be going to since they never quite got rid of their retail mentality. I had basically put the business aside after my last expo in Las Vegas in Oct/Nov. I knew I was just going to keep it for the discount on the product (which are some of the cutest styles and best quality out there). I told my downline in Jan. and made it official but was still there for anyone that needed help. I started in 2003 and for 5 yrs I supported and did my best to get TLC out there and going big. That just didn't happen. I just feel super bad for those who have huge downlines and count on that money coming in to pay bills and support their families. (ie: Shari Boggs, Jan Pepe, Krystal Grant, Sonja Rod. and so on.) I just feel heart sick for them. I'm sure I will stay on for awhile in the "Sales Club" or whatever to get the products but I feel so sad about the way they handled things that I just feel like pulling out all together. They weren't loyal to the consultants who supported them to this point why should we be loyal to them. I know the economy is hurting and they needed to make changes but this certainly wasn't the way to tell everyone. Very sad information to digest.
Would you join a club and pay $15-$25 a year to get discounts on scrapbook products you order online?
