Tom Chenault was the founding distributor at BAZI and a high chief. Garret McGrath was the #1 distributor in BAZI and during the last couple of years had set the corporate on hearth. These two males supplied a few of the finest subject management I’ve seen in a very long time.
However management begins within the nook workplace, the Founder and CEO of the corporate. On this case a publicly traded firm the place the Board of administrators didn’t have any MLM expertise and listened to little to late to their subject leaders.
Residing An Epic Journey,

  1. Be careful out there kids, and read your distributor agreement. Typically an MLM company can do anything they want and you have no recourse. It's usually ok when you're a little guy but when you put your heart and soul into a business and the company does this, it is absolutely devastating. Best to negotiate your own contract.

  2. I really feel bad for the reps at XELR8…both the little folks and the top leaders. Things like this give the network marketing industry a black eye. This business is like dating, there are nice men and women out there, but you might have to date a few losers to find a good one. Remember what Mel Gibson supposedly said, "I never lost money on an investment…I simply paid tuition." Learn long and prosper! 🙂

  3. HAte to say it, but predicted this a long time ago. Too many companies doing the same thing. Generating Sales through MLM and then taking a name that MLM's help build and cashing in for the Cosco or Walmart Orders so they can get rich and get out. How will the indipendents who were selling this program to others ever have any credibility again when the price of Bazi is less than half of what they were charging their clients and you can pick it up next to the rest of the soft drinks at your local dioscount store.

    • Scott,
      Thanks for coming by and commenting. However it seems you are a little premature in your conclusion. The company was very clear they are staying in the direct selling arena, not going retail. the new management of the company all have huge success in direct marketing.
      As a MLM advocate I hate to see this happen, but anyone who puts 100% of the blame on the company has not read the financial statements.
      I do agree 100% with you that the functional beverage niche is full and if a company doesn't have deep pockets it will be an uphill climb. But in the case of XLER8 read the financials everyone has to take responsibility, this is not just a company issue.

  4. It is sad that many folks will get hurt with this decision (I am NOT an xelr8 distributor)…the sad fact of the matter is that this happens every day in this industry–and I see so many folks who "tout" the best comp plan; best product, etc…
    Folks need to be taught that marketing the themselves is the way to go–not the product or company.

  5. Holly is correct – I applaud you – Market Yourself the product (every product is #1) The company (Every company is the best) The comp plan – (every plan the best in the business). Check the Rules real good. Be a leader of your team. Build a true business – you will be successful.
