Prosperity of Life Scam Review – A true review from a customer!

Let me guess, your friend or someone whom you know, talked to you about Prosperity of Life, and you wanted to know if it is a scam or if it is a legitimate business opportunity.

You’ve come to the right place because I am going to share with you the stuff that no distributors dare to tell you.

We are going to deep dive into the program and you are going to learn everything about it before you make an informed decision.

Rest assure that I am NOT someone who voice my opinion without any grounds.

I’ve paid for the membership and have access to the back office, and I am going to walk you through behind the scenes of what Prosperity of Life is all about.

So, let’s dive in…

True Experience from Prosperity of Life’s Ex-Customers

Recently, I’ve chat with a few people who’ve paid thousands of dollars to Prosperity of Life, and they’ve privately shared their experience with me.

Thankfully, they allowed me to share their stories with you for as long as they stay anonymous. So, they are…

What is Prosperity of Life?

Prosperity of Life was formerly known as Polaris Global.

The company was founded by Shane and Rachel Krider.

You might be interested to know that Shane Krider, was one of the founders of a known pyramid scheme called Liberty League back in 2009 that scammed $5 Million of people’s hard earned money.

And now, he is back.

Similar to Liberty League, Prosperity of Life only cost you $49.95 to purchase the Startup kit.

Once you are a member, they’ll use pressured sales tactics to get you to spend tens of thousands of dollars for “personal development courses” and “conferences”.

In one of the training sessions, they even ask you to take a loan just to buy their courses so that you can “earn it back”.

Here’s the thing, I find Prosperity of Life very similar to Liberty League.

Prosperity of Life has several product lines that cost $1,497, while Liberty League has a product line that cost $1,495, all of which are in the personal development space.

Then, Prosperity of Life has two types of “conferences”, one costing $7950 and the other which cost $12,950, while Liberty League has two conferences as well, one that cost $7,995 and the other that cost $12,995.

Does it look similar to you?

If you want to learn more about Shane Krider and Liberty League, you can read this article.

Well, up to this point, I think you know how the rest of the review is going to play out.

But, if you are still interested to learn more about the program, let’s dive deeper…

Prosperity of Life Scam? My Personal Opinion…

After spending hours upon hours on the training programs, I’ve come to a conclusion.

I could have spent my time on better things.

I wouldn’t say that their training program is worthless, but it is geared towards self-promoting.

Meaning, it will focused on teaching you how to promote Prosperity of Life.

You see, Shane Krider said that their audience are entrepreneurs who are struggling with their business.

Yet, their Facebook ads draw in people who aspire to earn money from home.

And, the way to earn money from home is to promote Prosperity of Life.

As an entrepreneur myself, I joined the program with an open-mind.

I thought I could learn something that could help me with my business, but I was wrong.

Simply saying, the products have no retail value.

Food for thought…

Normally, to sell a product, you can leverage on its benefits to convince others.

But, with Prosperity of Life, you are basically selling people an opportunity, not a product.

You see, why would any entrepreneur need a mindset training from people whom we don’t know?

As an entrepreneur, we would follow people like Tony Robbins, Gary Vaynerchuk, Jay Shetty or John C Maxwell, because we know they are the real deal.

Why would we spend thousands of dollars following someone we don’t know, we would rather spend that money on a seminar conducted by Tony Robbins or Gary Vanerchaek.

What’s your opinion on this? Share it in the comments section.

Why Entrepreneurs will not buy this!

With an operating business, would you have the time to consume hours upon hours of training just to “train your mind”?

I don’t know about you, but I only need a few minutes a day to keep myself motivated.

I watch inspiring videos on YouTube every morning.

And, if I want to spend time training myself, I would rather spend it on training that actually help with my business.

Also, I definitely wouldn’t have the time to “learn how to promote the Prosperity of Life”.

You can say that there is a branding course called “21-Day BreakThrough Branding System” that’ll help my business.

But, is it worth spending $1,497 on people who are not well-known in the branding industry?

If I need help for my business, I’d rather spend that money on Ryan Deiss from DigitalMarketer, because I know he is the real deal.

And, it doesn’t cost thousands to gain that knowledge.

I’ll be honest, if the Prosperity of Life products are cheaper (say $97), and the training sessions do not “beat around the bush”, it makes perfect sense to join.

If you want to charge a large amount of money in a specific topic, wouldn’t it make sense to proof that you are the real deal before anything else?

Now, we know that the products are super expensive just so that the people promoting it can earn a handsome commission.

The Prosperity of Life Products

M1: Master of Destinies 1

Master of Destinies is a 12 month home study program that supposedly transforms your current life into one that you desire.

It is said to be the big picture of your life transformation that brings you through 7 stages of transformation.

The 7 stages of transformation consist of:

  1. Know For Yourself
  2. Departure
  3. Decision
  4. Action
  5. Foundation
  6. Sovereignty
  7. Influence

This program also teaches you how to be an effective leader for your organization.

As a bonus, you’ll get a crash course for personal transformation called the 17 Day Personal Prosperity System Home Study program.

Guess what, you don’t need to pay $2,285 for M1 (Masters of Destinies 1), just pay $95 for it here (Thanks to me, now it’s gone!).

Prosperity of Life - Pathway - M1 - Master of Destinies 1 Prosperity of Life - Pathway - M1 - Master of Destinies 1

I guess Shane Krider forgot to remove his digital footprints. Now that I’ve highlighted it, it is removed.

Now, you know what the true value of this program is.

Can I safely say that the inflated price of the course is just for the sake of enticing its members to promote the program.

Think about it, would you rather earn $76 (80% commission for selling M1 at $95) or to earn $1,828 (80% commission for selling M1 at $2,285)?

M2: Master of Destinies 2 – Sovereignty Live

This is a 5 day live event where it touches on one of the transformation stages mentioned in the M1, which is “Sovereignty”.

Master of Destinies 2 (M2) is held 4 times in a year, and it cost $7,950 for each seminar.

This is basically a wealth creation Masterclass, and you can probably guess one of the methods of wealth creation that is taught in this Masterclass.

Have you guessed it right?

“Promoting the products of Prosperity of Life”

Any M2 that you sell can potentially earn you a Director Bonus of $5,000.

You do not immediately qualify for this Director Bonus, even if you’ve purchased the product.

I’ll explain how you can actually get qualified to earn this bonus in the next section.

This applies to whatever products that you sold in the Prosperity of Life.

M3: Master of Destinies 3 – Influence Live

This is a 8 day live event where it touches on the final stage of the transformation mentioned in the M1 (Influence).

You’ll learn advanced personal development and coaching techniques that will help you with your Prosperity of Life business.

Maybe the knowledge that you gain in this seminar can be applied to your other businesses.

But, is it worth paying $12,950 for that “life-changing” knowledge? I’ll let you decide.

If you are a Prosperity of Life associate, and you manage to sell someone an M3 event ticket, you can potentially earn a Director Bonus of $8,000.

More about the compensation plan in the next section. Shocking reality revealed!

M4: Master of Destinies 4

If you are interested to get the recording of the event that you’ve attended, you’ve got to pay for it.

How much? $1,495!

You would have thought that your payment to either of the live events includes a recorded session.

But, no! They want more from you.

You see, I’ve been to live seminars and I know how important it is to get a recorded version of it.

There is definitely a demand.

And, seeing the way Shane and Rachel Krider takes advantage of this demand, shows very much about their integrity.

M7: Master of Destinies 7

This is the training vault of all past seminar recordings.

This cost $4,590, and members who managed to sell M7 will potentially earn $3,672.

M7 Fast Track

M7 Fast Track contains everything in M1 plus M7.

The package price is $6,250, and members who managed to sell this package can potentially earn $5,000.

Prosperity of Life Compensation Plan – How to qualify to earn?

You won’t believe what you are going to hear in this section.

Even though you’ve spent thousands of dollars to unlock either of the training programs mentioned above, you are not immediately qualified to earn a commission from that product sale.

What happens is, once you’ve paid for either of the products, you will get the “in-qualification” status.

What it means is that you have to pass up the first 2 product sales.

Let me give you an example.

Let’s say that you’ve purchased the M2, you now attain the “in-qualification” status. You are being put under your “director’s M2 register”.

To make things simple, let’s forget about the register.

Once you’ve bought M2, you got out there and started to promote the Prosperity of Life.

After all that hard work, you’ve finally gotten someone to purchase the M2 membership.

Do you get the commission? No!

Then, you got out there once again to find another eager buyer, and now you’ve gotten another person who has bought an M2 membership.

Do you finally get paid? No!

Go out there and find 1 more! This time round you’ll get paid.

So, you’ll only earn a commission on the 3rd sale.

But, what if someone you’ve recruited buys M3, but you don’t own the product?

That commission will be passed up. You’ll only get paid for the products that you own.

Now, what do you think about this compensation plan?

To me, it’s extremely tough to earn! Finding 1 person to buy such a high ticket product (with a vague focus on personal development) is already very tough.

What do you think about this compensation plan? Is it easy for you to earn with this opportunity? Share your opinion with me in the comments section below.

Prosperity of Life Product Breakdown

Now, let me break down the price list for Prosperity of Life’s products:

Prosperity of Life - Product Pricing

Trust Issues

Prosperity of Life trust issues

Would you prefer to send money directly to the company, or would you prefer to send money to an individual’s bank account?

I don’t know about you, but I am not comfortable trusting my money with my sponsor.

What if my sponsor quits the business after I gave the money?

What legal actions will Prosperity of Life take?

My Sincere Advice to You

Prosperity of Life is very similar to the Liberty League, a known pyramid scheme ran by Shane Krider back in 2009.

Many people are promised to earn a life changing income with Prosperity of Life.

Unfortunately, the majority who spent tens of thousands of dollars on the products, did not earn a single dime.

What I didn’t like about Shane Krider is that he made it sound so easy to earn money from Prosperity of Life.

In one of the compensation plan video, he said that you should be grateful that you are passing up the first 2 sale to your sponsor, because that model will allow you to earn pass up sales from your enrollees in the future.

Unfortunately, by the time I get to earn a qualified commission, I’d probably be out of business.

Who is going to pay the bill while waiting for the cheque to come?

Also, while watching one of the training videos, Shane Krider actually commented that you should not be questioning your sponsor (director) on what they are asking you to do.

Even if it is to pay $12,950 for the M3 event ticket that you may or may not need.

That’s the message I am getting from him.

In my opinion, I will stay away from this program.

What I recommend?

I don’t wish to recommend any products or programs directly on this review, but if you wish, you can read my story and decide if that program is for you!

I honestly believe that you should not waste your hard earn money on programs that may not get you anywhere.

Join programs that will actually teach you something useful (like internet marketing), so that even if you fail, you’ve gained knowledge and experience that will help you be successful eventually.

Thank you for reading this review!

I hope this has provided you with the information that you need.

    As time, has gone on the leaders, have become pigs examples of this are Simon Haggard and Lee Anne Haggard and their latest methods, thought you had built a team think again these two despicable people will solicit your team to try to find the proof you have not been leading your team offering bitcoin to anyone that will give it, once they have it they have your team moved under them, Secondly they sit and watch for your subscriptions run out which can be a simple mistake on your part. once they know the subscription is unpaid they immediately have the whole team moved under them this is an absolute Low that not only these two do it but the whole global leadership team do it as well. They do with the full authority of Shane Krider and Rachel Krider, The leads you buy and advertise for yourself are not yours they have the right to keep your lead base and send out shane’s latest scams this one being investment advice for $97 US dollars per month from your lead base last time I looked giving advise while unlicensed to give financial advise is ILLEGAL. The proof is out there there are way too many victims of these two despicable people. There have been 100’s of complaints about Lee Anne and Simon but while the pigs make money for the slimy owners so they will stay where they are your complaint will not matter in fact you will be hounded for making one until you leave or thrown out as we have all seen happen, looking forward to the upcoming class-action make sure you get your name on the list.

    Thanks jack.
    I watched there intro vids yesterday after being “interviewed” and I was wondering why it seemed it was only about finding new distributors and not selling the product.I got my husband, he was supportive, to watch some , and he knew it was a scam. And yes he was right. Being more of a business man. Terrible. Makes me angry.

  4. Hi Jack
    thanks for the heads up on this one after doing much research on this set up decided it is a mlm/pyramid sales rotating scam and one to steer clear off
    can you forward your income opportunity details
    many thanks

  5. Hi Jack and everyone on this thread. I wanted to jump on here and also provide my warning to NOT JOIN POL. After foolishly paying for M7 Fastrack to join (US$6250) and spending 3 weeks listening to the training and observing, I have agree with Jack that this is indeed an ILLEGAL Pyramid Scheme and I was out of there. There is no inherent retail value in the product and therefore, all the distributors are only motivated to recruit new members for the “business opportunity” – that is the only reason why anyone would join and yes, means it’s pyramid scheme. They all buy from each other to move up the pyramid, thereby creating a circulation of funds that moves up to those at the top, while those below scramble to recruit newbies to make back their investment. Here are some lessons I’ve learned:
    #1 LIE: You will be told the “3 step system” is simple and works perfectly. These are 1. place an ad 2. Conduct scripted interview of prospect 3. You get paid
    FACT: POL’s main form of advertising is FB but this is not easy. Why? FB have strict rules on MLM’s and often disapprove ads and even shut down pages. In order to get past fb these days, you have to be super vague to the point of being deceptive in your advertising, something I wasn’t prepared to do. Of course, POL makes no mention of this when trying to recruit you and even falsely say they are not “MLM” but then you go to advertise and FB says you can’t promote “MLM”, meaning most of your advertising traffic is gone. When you get leads you then conduct the interview of prospects which is scripted to be vague and misleading and you feel so dodgy trying to trick people into joining. I called about 10 people (leads given to me by my upline) and felt so dirty reading out the script, it’s really degrading work. Lastly, it might be a looong time before you get paid because you literally have to go through hundreds even thousands before you get a poor person who falls for the trap. Usually it’s a vulnerable mum or retiree. How eff’d is that?!

    LIE #2: They advertise full support
    FACT: The training is just mechanical and rudimentary and when it comes to digital marketing, so outdated. There is no training on strategy, how digital marketing has changed, how you can be effective with it. Training is also not transferable skills to use outside of POL. Your upline will likely also be vague and unhelpful as they want the sales.

    LIE #3: They advertise that a consistent part time effort of 3hrs a day will product $181k plus of profit a year (equivalent to 2 M1 sales a week). A full time effort might product 4 sales a week resulting in you earning 6 figure months.
    FACT: this is so bogus. You’ll be lucky to make back your investment b/c most ppl see that it’s a scam. And the claim of “profits” don’t even include the ‘000’s these ppl pay to advertise. Also the high sales are usually for those at top of pyramid who have been around ages and who have coerced their downline to upgrade to more expensive products.

    LIE #4: If you don’t make money, you have “failed” because you didn’t “do the work”.
    FACT: when you are being recruited, “the work” is never explained. This “work” is all the deceptive advertising and prospecting I mention above. Many ppl quit cause it’s so degrading and they see how unethical it is and no longer want to participate. But POL will brainwash you to think you have a poor mindset and that’s why you failed. In fact they will encourage to “think bigger” by investing more to “attract” a bigger result.

    I believe some ppl are truly brainwashed and not bad ppl but definitely those at the top and Shane and Rachel are pathological liars with zero compassion and just fueled by pure greed. I will be fighting for my money back and reporting these scammers to authorities. We should band together for a class action and have them shut down before they hurt more ppl! PM me if anyone has questions of my experience as want to prevent ppl from losing money. Sorry for the novel but feel so passionately.

      Hi Jack,
      Thank you for your review and for the contributions that many others here have shared, following your Reply button.
      What can I say, but Thank you to all of you Good people.
      I am very disappointed as I have been on furlough for 4 months and looking for other avenues to earn a living and be happy at how I do it.
      I was never attracted to POL by their constant boasting of the potential income levels you may achieve – if anything it had the opposite affect and sounded too unrealistic and made me suspicious. I have spent probably atleast 3 full days studying all there literature and looking on line for reviews on this Company – just trying to establish what is credible.
      I believe I have found it, reading what yourself and others have experienced has gelled with what I have been thinking all along and confirmed my reservations.
      The Lady Representative I have been communicating with from POL sounds very up against it, very Hard Selling, Brassy and Abrasive. Not a Person who I would be able to continue to work with at all.
      Thank you again for helping me reach a place where I can confidently walk away from this opportunity, having made an informed decision.
      Regards Steven ( A South African Expat, currently resident in the UK)

      1. You are most welcome Steven! I am glad that the review helped.

    Hi there,

    I had a telephonic consultation set up for this morning with somebody who was offering to “put me on the path to a better life and financial freedom”.

    I decided that I should do some homework, as it does not do to chat somebody about an opportunity without first having read the (dozens) of emails and phone calls I received after completing the “Free info” offer on the website.

    I had had a brief look; however, my day job was busy and I hadn’t had the time to check it out in any detail.
    When I saw one of the “satisfied customer” reviews, I noticed the reference to “Prosperity of Life”. That got me curious as the person whose form I completed did not mention this on her web page.
    I decided to “google” Prosperity of Life and am still looking through the headings, 95% of which advise me to stay well away.

    Then I saw your page and had a look at your honest and objective review of this business opportunity.
    So, thank you. I messaged the person who was to call me to ask if there is an up-front financial investment required as I am sincerely not financially in a position to do this right now, even at whatever supposed low price I am offered to start.
    The answer was that with any start up company, costs are involved. Duh!!! However, it kind of needs to be transparent and not hidden amongst the “ra-ra blurb”. I guess that is how they catch people though.

    If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. As you rightly pointed out, isn’t it preferable to work with the Tony Robbins, Demartini’s etc where it is out there, proven track record and tranparency?

    I have just done a two day seminar with Real Success Events with John Demartini, I prefer to work through what I learned there in these two days than take my chances with an unknown. It was AMAZING by the way, I learned so much and am on the path to practice it both personally and professionally.

    So, I guess, what I really wanted to say after a rather long (longer than I planned) narrative is, THANK YOU for helping me save my money, my pride and my integrity.

    Have a great day. By the way, I live in South Africa.

  7. Hi Jack
    I am single mom with a son who’s father died two years ago. I work so many hours and wanted to know if there is something that I can do that will help me be home with my 12 year old son and gives us an opportunity to travel and get moved away from where we are to get away from the yuck of hurt around us. It’s been so hard. I need to be home to home school my son so he gets past his grief and grows into a more balanced young man.
    I keep trying to get talked into doing this POL. Omg, I can even hardly make it with all my things I am going through let alone to invest in this. I’ve been looking up constant reviews. Then I found your blog and It seems that you are real and want to help others. I really can’t afford to invest thousands or even hundreds however I want to see what you offer and my hopes it’s not an MLM…?!

    Thanks so much!

    Thank you Jack for your insightful review. I was interested
    with their online business but after viewing through their videos,
    I couldn’t find a single product that anybody would be interested
    to buy.
    Can you send some legitimate online business to choose from?

    thank you,
    Alan

  9. Hi Jack,
    Thanks for your review. I’ve read about those here who are not happy about it but true or not you’re doing a great service. you offer a neutral platform for me to decide about money. thanks. If only POL was so clear. they would gain not lose trust.

    I’m looking to start a business in a position of lack and don’t want to hand over good money to someone lurking and preying on my ignorance and who I don’t know if they care if I lost it or not. trust is important and I now sure the caller’s not entirely transparent about all that is happening. A phone call, emailing 6 videos and another call asking me out of 10 if I was interested wasn’t enough to overcome suspicion about what I was actually being asked to sell after spending $2285. when I questioned the exact content he said someone else would call me. I wasn’t impressed. If you have info about legit online please let me know. thanks.

    Dear Jack,

    And it is now doing its rounds in RSA (September 2019). I was approached by Jennifer Monk. I was not instantly suspicious as I have been investigating online business opportunities as we are considering imigration. And I need to find a business solution that I could take with me, wherever we may go. Also after a great amount of reviewing history, I found that this name is also used by many Nigerian scammers to out you of your hard earned cash.

    After a good review of the videos and doing the research online into the company and the actual details offered, I concur, SCAM.

    I however have not yet found a ligit online business opportunity as yet and have noticed that you have sent on some information to a fellow commentor. Please would you be so kind as to send myself a mail with some real (not scam) business opportunities that could assist me to have a real chance at earning online.

    Thank you for your blog and highlighting the now very obvious.

    Kind regards
    Melanie

  15. Hi Jack,
    Damn I wish i found you website before I enrolled in March 2019. I was at a very low point in my life and now looking back, they loved that part which made me very vulnerable and bought the M1 package.
    Like everyone, we are just trying to make some extra cash to bring us out of the red and live a better life and it infuriates me when taken advantage of. I’ve never created a website, etc but followed the instructions and did it but the NIL support from my Director was not good to eventually be NIL with absolute no care factor. I’ve tried calling many times to ask more questions but palmed off.
    The monthly fees for the website, unbounce, all the sites needed was costing a fortune each month and my little funds were literally drained. When I called my director to discuss this, she said well I was a single mum with 2 young children and I did it. In other words you’re useless.
    Overall, very expensive Personal Development programs that you can YouTube for a better result. They talk about Time is precious – well the live training that sometimes go for hours and then you have others things to chase up and look at – there goes any spare time I had.
    I spewing but it’s done now but I’ve saved your website for any future programs I look at. I just want to find, learn and begin a ‘side hustle’ that will eventually enable me to leave my full time job and live life with my kids.
    Thanks again and keep up the awesome work mate.
    Regards
    Jenelle

  16. My ending up commenting here is a result of my having enough common sense to find out a little bit more about “Prosperity Of Life” before I got involved. And I am glad I did so coming to this site. Thank you for a full breakdown of what Prosperity For Life is about. Your breakdown / detail is exactly what my gut feeling was telling me.
    Personal development is a topic I trained in over 20 years ago with countless mentor’s inc Anthony Roberts. With many mentor’s courses and seminars behind me, I know enough here to see that joining Prosperity For Life is questionable. Now I know why the Australian contact Simon Cooper when I addressed the content of one of the courses struggled to provide answer. Any marketing that uses big boats, holidays, crowds of happy people on introductory photos and videos promising the good life – ALWAYS SIGNAL WARNING BELLS.
    Those warning bells (I nick name warning bells as neuron switch’s) when you have been trained in personal development always lead to : a presentation of pictures your mind desires you to have – but you are likely to financially screwed over. If I could upload photos here of my own boats, regular holidays, several fast cars here – I would get your attention. I got into personal development years ago, not because of money, I was and am successful, but I was unhappy with in myself back then. Personal development is where I learnt about me and my thinking. True Personal development has 6 main categories / topics, and one is money / wealth. Another is relationships etc etc..
    Yes – I invested in myself, the rewards were life changing and happiness for me, and my children who came along later got some knowledge in their upbringing.
    I would question Prosperity For Life business model – look at where your money is going, time factors, their care factor, how many other thousands of people may be falling into any trap you may be about to entre.

  17. Hi Jack,

    Thank you for taking the time to read this. I respect the fact that you post all good and negative comments on your website, and take the time to respond.

    I thought you might appreciate hearing from another previous Prosperity of Life associate who has now left the business.

    Ironically the reason I had to stop working the business was not because of the business model or any of the reasons explained on your webpage, but because of the review sites.

    Like so many who are attracted to POL because of the opportunity to create a significant income from home, I was looking for a way to take back financial security for myself after being made redundant and struggling to get work again, both due to my age.

    But despite following the system and putting in the required level of work, I just wasn’t getting the results. I had people telling me they were excited to get started but then I would never hear from them again. This went on for months and I couldn’t figure out why that was until someone sent me through a link to your website telling me they had done their research and didn’t want to be part of a scam.

    When I read the information on your webpage to be honest I was very frustrated…here I working so hard to create a better life for myself and spending my pension to fund the business, and with one quick google search they were landing on your webpage and convinced that POL was a scam.

    After checking out your webpage I found a few things that weren’t quite accurate which I thought you might be open to listening to.

    Yes this business model is not for everyone but it’s a heck of a lot better than the 9-5 job where job security is non-existent, MLM where you to have hundreds of people under you to generate a 6-figure income or franchise businesses where it can take several years to start earning a profit.

    I read a lot of comments on your page from those who did not create the results they were looking for. But that’s business right? There are no guarantees except the ones you give yourself. There are many variables as to why someone may not be successful eg. did they put in the required work, did they treat it like a business or a hobby, did they give themselves the space to learn their new craft or did they quit after the first obstacle?

    Yes you may not resonate with the qualification process of POL and that’s okay the business is not for you. I personally liked the idea that there was no re-qualification and once qualified I would be qualified for life. I also liked that I didn’t have to jump through several hoops each month to qualify to receive my pay cheque (like a typical MLM). But again each to their own and we are all looking for different things in a business.

    Does it mean that I’m brainwashed because I resonate with the business model and believe in what POL offer? No I don’t believe that makes me or anyone brainwashed. We all resonate with different things in life and that’s okay.

    I agree that there are more popular speakers out there but I don’t believe they are offering a business opportunity like POL.

    Yes the business requires ongoing cost of the business tools and marketing which are outlined in the presentation and on the 3way call, but what business doesn’t?

    You also talk about the pressure to purchase the product. The network marketing business model is based on customers selling the product, that’s because they are a product of the product and know what they are selling. While it is recommended it is definitely not forced. Something I hear Shane say often is that there are no have-tos in our business, you can choose to or choose not to, it’s up to you.

    You mentioned that you have gone through the program, did you purchase the M1 product?

    Regarding the Liberty League topic, yes the business model is similar and that’s because it wasn’t the business model that was the problem. It was an associate who was guaranteeing people’s success. Once Shane learnt about this he resolved the issue internally and refunded everyone who came forward. He also got rid of the distributor who was the top company earner. Lawyers heard about this and put an ad in the newspaper advertising for others to come forward. The case was eventually dropped but the damage was already done. I think a fair review would be to also share this information (which can be requested from POL Corporate).

    
Regarding the $95 Pathway course, how do you know that this just wasn’t a distributor who was using Shane’s video and promotional material to sell the product cheap? I ask this as I know Shane is a smart business man and would not de-value his product by trying to sell it online at a fraction of the price. I also know that Shane is the visionary of the company and doesn’t market the products himself. 



    With the M4 product, if you attend the event you get access to the recording for free. Not sure where you heard that you had to pay for it. The M4 is for those who didn’t attend the event and would like to hear the recording.

    I know this has been a bit of a novel and I thank you for taking the time to read it. POL was a great opportunity in terms of what I was looking for (personal development + level playing field + time freedom + lucrative income) but unfortunately I couldn’t compete with the review sites.

    I don’t want you to say POL is a good opportunity if you don’t believe it, but I do believe a fair review site should list the pros and cons of the opportunity. I also think that it’s important to provide all the information as this information is impacting so many peoples lives and needs to be reliable and non-biased.

    There is already so much scepticism in the world of online businesses & network marketing, and I feel that we are just muddying our own water by putting down every other business that is not ours. Instead we need to come together and build up our industry.

    This is something that POL are against and anyone found putting down another business opportunity to promote POL will have their distributorship closed. I think this is a great stand to take in our industry.

    Take care and I wish you every success in your business.

    Kind Regards,
    David Short

    1. Hi David,
      Actually, I have been approached to join POL and they do pressure you to buy the product.
      I was told there was only a $49 start up cost. That is not true. It is an ongoing monthly cost of $153 USD per month for various bullshit lead generating sites, training sites, blah, blah.
      When I was approached, I was told you needed no experience and NO START-UP COSTS but then all of a sudden you have to purchase the fist personal development program because of course, they want you to understand the product to sell it, even though you are meant to just put out an ad, wait for a lead and pass it to a 3rd person “because the product speaks for itself”.
      They literally say that, that the product sells itself, so why do we have to purchase it to know it? Oh, that is right, to QUALIFY AS A DIRECTOR to be able to actually draw an income. What utter rubbish.
      I am so glad I found this site because it validates what I knew to be true. It’s a scam.

      1. Hi Fiona, the business presentation clearly outlines the $49.95usd registration fee and the ongoing costs. It went into detail about what the ongoing costs cover, you must have skipped that section??

        Having experience with a product you’re selling makes sense to me. Customers want to know what benefits you experienced from using the product. When you tell them I don’t know I didn’t see the value in purchasing it myself, you’re probably not going to make many sales.

        I was never pressured to buy the product. My upline was very direct with me as to what it takes to create success and one of her tips was to be a product of the product, know what you’re selling. I appreciated her direct approach as I was there to make money using the fastest route possible. If I was hiring a business mentor to give me advice I would expect the same advice, just because that person giving me advice is my upline does not mean that I’m getting “pressured”.

        1. Hi David, the M1 product is a 12 month course. How can you promote a product to sell if it will take you that long to go through it? That’s right, you can’t. You can only sell the “business opportunity”. Has anyone in POL successfully sold the product without the business opportunity. I doubt it. And if they did, was it a good review. I doubt it again. All this points to the system being an illegal pyramid scheme. Understand that most are just brainwashed ppl trying to make a living, but you need to educate yourself on the law and that you are illegally ripping ppl off with the pyramid scheme.

    2. Thank you David for leaving this comment!

  18. Hi Jack,
    thank you for your advice and information. I have seen this product before and was sceptical of it then. But was having another look as I am (as so many people are) desperate to develop a passive income.
    Your review stopped me bothering with the call from the ‘director’ person selling me the product.
    Thanks so much for taking the time to save people a lot of financial heart-ache.
    Cheers

    1. You are most welcome! Glad that helped.

      Cheers!

    Hi Jack,

    Thanks for your review. I’ve recently gone through the business info and am currently doing my research before I make a decision.

    I personally do not have a problem purchasing a personal development product that costs $2,285 especially when it has a business opportunity attached to it. In my opinion that is an affordable business investment.

    My concern is more around the competition from other companies with similar products. You mentioned Tony Robbins, Gary Vee, etc however I am unaware of any business opportunities they offer. I may have misunderstood you but can you confirm if they offer a business opportunity for their products and are their profits similar to the $1,828 offered by prosperity of life? Would love to know more about this please 🙂

    The lady I’ve been speaking to at the prosperity of life also sent me through a link where Shane addresses the company history and name change which I found quite interesting. Would love to hear your thoughts on it?

    Thanks for taking the time to read my message and looking forward to your feedback.

    1. Hi Tracy,

      I understand where you are coming from. Basically, you don’t mind spending a lot of money to buy into a business opportunity.

      The product means nothing to you in my opinion. The reason why I think so is because, if you have gone to any seminars or classes that Tony Robbins, Gary Vee, etc, you know that their info can impact your life so much more than what the products of Prosperity of Life can offer.

      So, you don’t mind paying for an overpriced product because there is a opportunity tagged to it.

      Honestly, that is the premise of how Pyramid schemes started.

      I saw the vid that you’ve provided. Well, it is easy to push the blame to someone else, first he said his partner, then he shifted the blame to one of the top earners in Liberty League back in 2014 . Well people, just do a simple google search on “Liberty League Scam”, and you will find the truth…

  20. I too have lost on this. Yes you pay the $49 to join but the lady I joined through only works with people who purchase the product – the cheapest being $2285USD and you can only sell a product which you have already purchased. I bought the product. Then got to work. 2 weeks in they get you on a “business setup” call where they tell you their story then end with the upsell – telling you why you should take the $7,000USD product deal or even the new M2 products for more than 12,000 thereabouts to be eligible to sell those products. When you tell them you don’t have the funds, they will tell you that it was the same with them. But “not having the money” is just a perception because really, you can always use credit cards or take out a loan. Thankfully i didn’t. Almost 3 months in to the business doing the works and after hundreds on ads I have only lost $$ and made no sale. After talking to 100 + people following their scripts and everything they tell you to do.
    I know this has worked for a few people but seriously how is pressuring people to purchase a $2,000 + product to be able join the business and sell that product RIGHT? The whole time this didn’t feel right…talking to people to get try and get them to join…i.e. buy a $2,000+ product before they can sell that product. What’s the $49 joining fee then? Also, if you don’t do what they tell you (buy the “other/extra” product), they are less willing to help you.
    P.S. I asked for a refund and they used the “you’re out of the 10 day money back guarantee time” line.

    Well Well Well, I got to the 3 way phone last night, I said to the Leader who was from Aussie “it feels like a scam” oh no she said, I said “I’ve been scammed before to the tune of $17,000NZD, she said “I have been bankrupt and lost everything, its a great way to get ahead again” she has been doing this for 10 years, the first person who rung me up and I forget what you call her but another kiwi, said she purchased M7 fast track for just under $10,000 NZD 2 months ago, eeerrrrrrr why do things that sound really good be so really really bad, thank god I do research and found your reviews, very useful and I will not be signing up, they look so ligitimate

  22. I too, thank you for not only your opinion but the information you provided about ‘Prosperity of Life’. 5 mins into the videos I decided to Google it and this is the only site I opened from the Google results… and I am happy that I’ve not wasted my time bothering to complete the videos.

    Thanks to you and your brief but thorough breakdown, I’ve received all the info required to make my decision on this one! ….
    ……….. No thanks ‘POL’, I’M SAVING MY PYRAMID EXPRIENCE FOR EGYPT 😉

    1. Hey Eleisha,

      I am glad that my review helped. 🙂

      Cheers!
      ~Jack (BareNakedScam)

  23. WOW … I had a gut feeling when they called me …

    I researched the market value of “Prosperity of Life” and you appeared … I started listening and it sounded way too good to be true … I sounded like they were just selling courses … WHAT? The first thing I thought of was PYRAMID =( Your review was PERFECT … clear to the point and I have made my decision based on your review ….

    I will not follow THIS SCAM and I will continue to listen and follow TRUE Online Marketing companies – my mentor Entrepreneur Ignited – Derek Gehl – from Canada =) I learned and am still implementing his techniques on my businesses.

    Relistening to their videos – it seems so clear that it is just a SCAM …
    Thanks for saving me time and money on cliche educational training … I actually have a Masters in Education and this is cheap sales, empty promises, and making these 2 richer on the back of hard-working people who believe in and hope in change …
    I am actually ashamed they hard sell and deliver empty promises

    I believe in people, I believe that change that comes from following your intuition, I believe we should follow real entrepreneurs, and be the change you want to see =)

    Thanks for your review EPIC!!!!

    Cheers,

    Monique =) (Switzerland)

  24. TL Havens says:

    I looked into this. It is a scam. The people who actually need self help material can’t afford it or they wouldn’t need it… also, I was grad student of neuropsychology… my question is low does this no education guy learn how the brain works? Or, What it takes to change brain functions? The kriders don’t know… the videos Shane Krider developed this material for pol over years of accumulation ants experience… whaaaat? So who is he copying? And he’s so keen in life that he gained knowledge from experience that others couldn’t?… the material was also indicated as containing information about how to break the minds free from triggers and imprisoning thought processes. Psychologists with years of research backing their methods have not accomplished this but Shane krider has? Yeah right… total scam.

    1. I, too have a Bachelor in Sociology and Behavioural Studies and I was thinking the exact same thing – where does he source his information? What a load of rubbish. He says things that are elementary and really is plucked from thin air. One guy said he started the program with -$1.67 in the bank – how did he do that when it costs $153 USD monthly for the running costs alone for the websites they require you to have – payable to THEM?
      Baloney!

  28. I got 10min in on the first video and I paused it to Google “Shane Krider”… not just no, but Hell No! I had the MLM alarm bells ringing as soon as it started. Not to say that you can’t make money in MLM but this is certainly not the one for me.

    G’day Jack I’m so glad I’ve read your comments now, I did pay the $50, but then didn’t want to take it any further until I found out some facts, the woman that I spoke to plus another jumped on to me amediatly, they couldn’t answer my questions, I do think most are totally brainwashed, I’m sure people must be throwing in thousands of $ right? Do you know of others that know the same as what you do? Thanks for the heads up Jack, Peter Dans ?

  32. Thanks Jack….very interesting

    Question,………..why are people still signing up for this venture …….surely they are checking out reviews like yours

    I received a phone call and then an email today about the venture and then did some research

    Mike

    1. The problem is, there are still people who do not research, and there are people who have been “brainwashed”. It is unfortunate that the only thing we can do is to try and get the word out.

  33. Ruth Hendricks says:

    Hi Jack,

    Thank you so much for your website (BareNakedScam). It is very informative and a pleasure to have an honest opinion.

    I clicked a link, had no idea what it was about, and someone phoned me, they still didn’t tell me what is was all about. They asked me three important questions to see if I qualified for the next step. They sent me an email and told me to watch the six video and they will phone me again in a couple of days. I still didn’t know what it was all about. I watched the first two videos about personal development. I must have missed the part where I pay $49.95 (or there about) for membership. For me it was still unclear what they were selling/or what was about. The videos were not to the point. They contained a lot of unimportant information imbedded in the video disguising the main points. It wasn’t until I viewed video four (I think) where they actually tell you what or how you can make money. It was by purchasing other videos costing around $8 000 or so that would bring you an income of $$$$. Then Rachel said the majority of our members purchase these personal development videos for themselves as an investment and receive the income of $$$$. I believe in personal development but not at a cost of $8-10,000. I still haven’t finished watching the videos, but I think my mind is made up on what direction I’m taking.

    Thank you so much Jack, I was nearly scammed.

    1. Hi Ruth,

      People, PLEASE check for legitimacy before giving ANYONE YOUR money!!

  34. Wow! Thank you so much. When I first looked at this ‘Born to Prosper’ who has apparently changed their name many times, something felt familiar and then I come here an see “Liberty League” and then I knew why it seemed familiar. I was scammed hugely by the Liberty League so this is huge and people, if you are doubting what is being said here at Barenakedscam, DON’T!!!! He is telling you the truth and that is very rare to see.

    1. Rose Marschall says:

      I also lost $16,000 with Liberty League. I worked the program from 2:00pm-6:00pm or 7:00pm for one full year. I got 2 people in it only…..over all that time. My upline told me to keep going back to read some chapter in “Beyond Freedom”. These reviews are educating me about how much of a scam this is. Thanks.

  35. Leslie Boyette says:

    Jack, I wanted to share my experience just this week with a person in this Prosperity of Life organization. I watched all the videos this guy sent, we had been texting and friending each other on Facebook. He made all kinds of promises that he would be right there with me. Then it came time for me to put up or shut up. I’m sure you know that there are different levels that you can join at, and the cheapest one is over $2500. This man, who by the way is a former pastor and was quoting all kinds of Scripture to me the whole time, really encouraged me to join in at the top level, which is over $7,000. At the time I was talking to him, I think I had $73 in my checking account and no credit cards. He really wanted me to ask my parents and friends for $7,000 to join Prosperity of Life, and I am ashamed to admit that I did ask two close friends to borrow $2500. Neither one of them could spare the money, so I gave myself a break and decided OK I will get the “Start-Up Kit” for $49.95 I think. I told the pastor about this one morning, after talking to both friends the night before and asking to borrow money. His response was very short. He would look into how to get the kit and get back in touch. That was 3 days ago. And to think that if I HAD had the money, I probably would have given it to a company who obviously only wants people to join if they can come in at the TOP level. Thank you Jack for your website!

    1. Thank you for sharing your experience Leslie!

      Cheers!

  36. Thanks for this! Like others I wanted to know more so gave them my information, but when I went to research “born to prosper” I couldn’t find anything about it…what they do/sell or what I would be doing! Then I came across a comment on Reddit that had the link to here. I just got a call from them about 10mins ago to talk me through it, and boy am I glad I said I was busy!!! The number will now be blocked!! Thank goodness for truth tellers!!!

  37. Dear Jack.
    10 years ago I got sucked in by Rachel while she was operating under LLI. Days before handing over nearly $30,000 to go Full Boat as they called it then, something in my gut told me to google them further. LLI scam was the only two words I needed to feel sick with what came up.
    Yesterday, I decided to see if they were still around. Sadly I see they are… Only now, Rachel Oliver is now Rachel Krider. Same snake oil selling wench she always was…
    Thankfully my post on facebook about it has seen a friend call me to enquire about it as a friend of hers has just paid $850 for entry level into POL. apparently they had a special on the sale price. I do believe I may averted this poor woman from losing any more… Thanks for this blog as I’ve passed it on to her.

    1. Thanks for sharing your past experience here! It means a lot to people who are researching this program.

      Cheers!
      ~Jack (BareNakedScam)

  38. Gday Jack, this kinda reminded me of the AMWAY system where you have to sit through 2 hours of motivational giddy ups, before the word Amway is mentioned. I do believe in self development, but why do these schemes have to be so expensive. ? Id prefer to help ordinary people with ordinary cashflow, instead of asking them to pay 10k for a system.

    Good review, they contacted me today and couldn t really answer any questions, but kept saying WATCH THE 6 VIDEOS… I got 5 minutes into the second one when i googled and found this page. I wont be watching any more. I wonder how legit the testimonials videos are?

    Keep it real….orange peel 🙂
    Marko the tightarsedtraveller

  39. Hi Jack, I think you have a great site here and are very fair in your reviews.

    However, I also think in this case, you are a little off the mark. I need to mention that I am not in POL, but I was in Liberty League back in the day and I made good money and so did many of my team (in fact many of them made more than me!). The trouble is with anything like this – even low-cost MLM ventures – not everyone actually does the work necessary to build a successful business. The problem as I see it is when you pay a lot of money to invest in a business and don’t make it back due to a lack of effort or following a system – our culture prefers to blame someone or something outside of themselves. I think that happens a lot in this industry, unfortunately.

    The reality is – those who get ‘scammed’ are usually the ones looking for a get rich quick scheme and miss all the advice given when they get started about the fact that you do need to roll your sleeves up and work to get the rewards… so I wouldn’t call these guys scammers – but I would say that this style of business is not for everyone.

    If you don’t value the huge impact personal development can have in any area of your life, then it’s not for you because a person like that will never value the products.
    If you believe that only a select few can teach you about personal development and its importance in everyday life (those with big names in the industry), then this is not for you (and you’ll also miss out on some amazing info from lots of others who prefer to fly under the radar).
    If you decide you want to earn a million, but are only prepared to invest $1000 and then sit on the beach waiting for the money to turn up, then this business isn’t for you.
    By the way – when I say ‘you’ I’m not speaking directly at you, Jack. I’m aiming my comment just generally at anyone who may look at an opportunity like this.

    As I say – I really feel that you have integrity – but whilst I am sure that POL isn’t perfect, I don’t think that because a couple of ex-members who were close to Rachel & Shane are disgruntled (for whatever reason – the interview links are gone now) means that it is a bad business – it’s just not for everyone.

    Anyway – keep up the good work and thanks for all you do!

    1. Hi Berlinda,

      Thanks for your comment! You are right that not many people will follow through with a program and make things happen. However, I don’t believe in the hyped up sales pitch that lures unknowing people into a self-fulfilling prophecy (spending thousands of dollars on a training program that teaches people to promote POL solely).

      People will be spending thousands of dollars on POL expecting that POL will do the work for them because they are led to believe so. Plus the exorbitant cost to the training program isn’t the end of spending. Members need to pay extra money to get leads or prospects. These are all not carefully explained upfront. People spending so much money would have expected that they are not being led to spend more, wouldn’t you agree. I would think that POL should be more upfront with their marketing messages.

      Anyway, thanks so much for dropping by and sharing your thoughts.

      Cheers!

    Liberty League 2009 was the beginning then came the changes that make you wonder where you’re/they’re coming from … they were called “Polaris Media Group” for a while and then they changed to “Polaris Global”. That’s when I joined. $49 was all it took. They didn’t tell you what else was involved.

    Was it a Pyramid Scheme? “No,” they denied it, and yet 5 million dollars from innocent people had been yielded. Liberty League was a pyramid scheme. Name Change: Polaris Media Group. With it came the BFE. Beyond Freedom Education. Which remains the same today.

    It was at enormous cost that you’re encouraged cleverly, to spend. Coaxed out of your subtly through calls (You pay for) because if you don’t have the product how could you be a product of what you are selling? So you go into hock.

    The drawcard in those days was Pauline O’Halloran, Alison Wheeler and Belinda Byfield and Leanne Bartlett. They have done well with your dollars. And while they’re still there in old worn out videos … yes way back in the early 2010, 2012 old news. While you’re wondering if it’s all worth it, it’s still upline. It’s still pyramid selling and it’s still YOUR CHOICE. Listen to your Gut before you buy.

    1. Thanks for sharing this Judy!

      Cheers!

  41. My hubby saw this post before I joined and warned me that POL is a scam, I was unfazed. Scam to me is paying money without getting anything. I got the product, it’s awesome. The trainings are great, even to me who has been in the professional world before doing marketing. I was not scammed. I’m glad I trusted my guts. They provided everything I need to know before paying for anything. They abide with the consumer law that says you can change your mind in purchasing within 10days. I don’t know what scam are you guys talking about. I WAS NOT SCAMMED, and I’m having a blast!

    1. Glad that worked for you, they have completely brainwashed you.

      Applying pressured sales tactics to get people to sign up to the “opportunity” is what I considered scam here, which is what most “coaches” are doing in POL. Positing themselves as a “make money online opportunity” without having any retail-able product line is what is considered a pyramid scheme. Charging $8k and above for a “Brain Training” course, which is basically a way to get you to promote POL itself, is also considered a pyramid scheme. As I’ve said, you don’t need to pay a lot of money to improve your mindset, just follow people like Tony Robbins and Gary Vaynerchuk will probably gain you more knowledge than the POL courses itself.

      I think I know why you considered POL not a scam, even though everything is laid out. As you’ve said, you are a marketing professional, you see POL as an opportunity which has a “sexy” appeal, and that’s why you were attracted to it. The product itself isn’t what captures your attention, it is the thought that you can earn a lot of money with this program.

      For many other people, I am pretty sure they will lose a lot more money than they can earn from this program.

      Anyway, thanks for sharing your thoughts.

      Cheers!

      Right on Sister!

  42. Hi Jack,
    Interesting article. Your a very true in that this business is not for everyone however I beg to differ. I have invested lots of money over the years in Personal Development as one should to grow in all areas of life. I could turn around and say that the courses I have attended and participated in are a waste of money but I would only be lying. Whether I come away having learnt a whole lot or a simply mind shift, it has been worth the investment in myself. The truth is that any business, whether traditional or online, requires effort, determination, desire and total dedication. Shane Krider speaks openly about his past and I admire how transparent he is. There are always two sides to any story. As for me, I’m grateful that I answered the ad on FB. I now travel the world and my business comes with me. I have control and flexibility which was one on my biggest goals. Thanks for the opportunity to respond and I hope that you also share my reply.

    1. Thanks for sharing! But, I am not sure if spending $8k+ on a personal development course conducted by someone not recognized in the industry is the way to go for me, and many others. I mean, if you go to a Tony Robbins seminar, it doesn’t cost you that much to start with, and Tony Robbins is a well known figure in the industry. So, what does it say about this program? I’ll let you decide.

      Anyway, congrats on your success. It is really rare to see a success story from this program, or maybe I am assuming about your success. Wishing you all the best on your business. 🙂

      Cheers!

  43. I also found this on a FB ad, the person who called me could not Answer my questions then couldn’t contact with her top person, and then I got my phone bill for international rates, even then I decide to maybe give it a chance. When finally got to speak to higher up person she insisted that I needed to pay the 6,000+otherwise good bye. Thst made up my mind really quick TG. But I still would like to start a business on line, and after so much stuff I’m confused, and believe me it has nothing to do with blocks You seem to suggest for others, maybe you can do it for me. Glad you wrote this article, at least I did not get pulled into it
    Thank You,

    1. Hi Anna,

      Thanks for sharing your experience here!

      I would recommend that you check out this program. It doesn’t cost much and it is newbie friendly.

      Let me know what you think.

      Cheers!

  44. Hi I read your pol that keep emailing me all the time to sign up I sead to them it sounds like priarmid selling to me it sound good. but to good to be true so iam looking to start up on line business shot can u recommend for me iam a stay home dad can u help me out Thanks john

  45. Been on the fence about joining POL for the past month. Have always had an entrepreneur spirit and thought this could be my big break, but after finding your review I am choosing differently. I have a dropshipping business atm, but am unsure how to be successful with it. I will look into the link you provided for ninja dropshipping. Thanks for all your honesty, I appreciate it.

    1. Glad that my review helped Bettie!

  46. Hey Jack, I just found your site while researching Prosperity of Life and I’ve now got about 10 tabs open reading your various articles! Very interesting and useful info, thanks so much!!

    I must admit I’m just a bit confused though… if you think most people in Prosperity of Life are struggling to make sales and exaggerate their success, wouldn’t we have heard from hundreds (if not thousands) of their ex-employees by now? I mean, from what I gather the business (in this format) has been around for about 8 or 9 years now, if it was so hard to make back the $5-10k I understand it costs to “buy in” and also make sales on top of that, I would think within 6-12 months most people would have realised the business was a scam and be posting their experience online? Know what I mean?

    Also, I hate to play devil’s advocate here, but doesn’t the value of an item differ from person to person? An iPhone might mean the world to one person, but to someone who hates Apple they might refuse to even use it.. I just mean that while you say the product has little to no retail value, that’s from your – already educated – point of view. To someone who knows nothing about what their product is teaching, isn’t it entirely possible that the idea of not having to spend hours and hours scouring the internet for the best teachings in every single one of the points covered by their product, and just having everything provided in a simple to follow package, is well worth the investment?

    I haven’t signed up with them yet, but to be honest I am considering it.. If the product appeals to certain people and they find value in it, why not make money with it too?

    At this point I’m open to any suggestions, but Prosperity of Life is looking good… I am curious though about your comment above, “if you’d like me to introduce you to a legitimate program that is worth your time, do let me know”. Would you mind contacting me about this please?

    Thanks again Jack 🙂

    1. Hey Harry,

      Like the two person who contacted me (see the article above) and didn’t want to be named, they rather keep their experience for themselves if it would mean that their identity will be compromised.

      These people built up a relationship with the Prosperity of Life distributors, and they didn’t want the distributors to find out that they didn’t have a positive experience.

      That’s why so many people are keeping it to themselves. There are also many reasons for not coming out to the public as well.

      Like for example, people blame themselves for not becoming successful and they feel shameful to share their experience, or they are just too worried that their comment will leave a negative remark on their reputation.

      There are really many reasons. Does that clear out your confusion?

      When I review a program, the first and most important thing that I look at is whether or not the program will lead you to somewhere. And, most importantly, if you ever fail in the business, will you take away some valuable lessons that will help you become successful in the future.

      Unfortunately, I feel that the training program only teaches you how to have a positive mindset, as well as teaching you how to promote just the prosperity of life, and nothing else. It will not teach you how to promote other products available on the internet. That’s just my personal opinion after assessing what is in the program. And, I definitely wouldn’t pay thousands of dollars learning how to promote prosperity of life.

      Well, if you think that you need to instill positive mindset, why not follow Gary V, Tony Robbins, or Jay Shetty. These are the people who actually impacted millions of people, and they don’t charge an upscale of ten thousand dollars for their seminar.

      The final decision is always yours. My job is to inform, and whether or not you take my advice, is totally up to you. 🙂

      Cheers!

  47. Ian Rance says:

    I read your post about Prosperity of Life which basically gets you into their funnel with the promise of an online business model (franchise) and then tries to get you to buy a product you were not looking for in the first place. Note that it does not go anywhere in the direction of solving the problem that you entered the funnel to solve.

    Then I learn the ‘opportunity’ is to sell that product using ads to get other people into that funnel and sell THEM products that they did not want in the first place.

    I am not saying it won’t work but I am not happy trying to earn money by tricking people. Having been defrauded in real life and had my family and life destroyed as a result, just strengthened my resolve to demand authenticity and ensure whatever I do has something valuable to offer a buyer shelling out their hard earned cash. Making people pay for the ‘opportunity’ to market a non-valuable product to the next sucker just to make money is not an honourable pastime in my book.

    Bringing value is authenticity which should be making the world go around. My advice would be to keep searching for a product that has value to the buyer as well as yourself as promoter. I know it’s hard but it’s not impossible.

    1. Hey Ian,

      Thank for sharing your thoughts on Prosperity of Life!

      I am sure this will help people understand what the program is all about.

      Cheers!

    Hello Jack
    My ex wife got into POL about 5 months ago and is so very excited with it and apparently doing well signing up newbies.
    She is also excited to head to Thailand soon as part of the 6 pack experience where you stay with Shane & Rachel.
    They will also be doing professional
    Videos and photos.
    What is the cost for this 6 pack experience ?
    Why is she having great success with POL and others bas it as a scam ?

    1. I think it cost above $10,000 for that experience.

      Well, maybe you are looking at the surface, and it seems that your ex wife is doing very well.

      But, in fact, she could be struggling to recoup her initial investment.

      This happen very often, because people who are trying to recruit others will usually exaggerate their “success”. This gets people interested in the business opportunity.

      I’m pretty sure she won’t post her struggles and the problems she is encountering, because it diverts people away from the biz op.

      This is kind of a strategy used in many pyramid schemes.

      Cheers!

        Yes, for example, Amway actually coaches its people to lie about how much money they make, because, after all, they are not making any money at all.
        Also, everyone should watch the television series : “On Becoming A God In Central Florida”, starring Kirsten Dunst.

  49. Dawn R McLaughlin says:

    I was skeptical of this program as soon as I began watching the videos. Thank you for sharing your opinion and honestly! I am looking at starting my own at home based business. I have considered Shopify and I have read a great deal about it. What are your thoughts??

    1. Hey Dawn,

      Thanks for dropping by!

      Shopify dropshipping is one of the popular route to make money online.

      But it means that you need to find resources, talk to suppliers, negotiate deals, etc. It is going to be tough, and many don’t make it (much like any business).

      So, I’d advise that you find a mentor or a course to help you streamline the process. Check out this program, have you heard of it?

      Cheers!
      ~Jack (BareNakedScam)

  50. Thanks Jack….Warning bells sounded off as soon as I saw the adds on facebook. To explore this scam further I spoke to a person on the phone who gave me the BIG SELL! Up to $100k’s a year, for 10-15 hours a week blah..blah..blah. I watched the 6 videos – and what a load of crap.. You would expect a company to sell the product before the business. Just imagine the people they have enticed into their rubbish and the millions they’ve made preying on peoples vulnerabilities. Am glad I have strong alarm bells that sound off in me! You confirmed this further and thanks.

    1. Hey Trish,

      Thanks so much for dropping by and sharing your thoughts.

      I am glad that this review helped!

      Cheers!
      ~Jack (BareNakedScam)

  51. Thanks so much Jack.
    I was contacted about this business and I watched all 6 videos. I was skeptical and unsure so I looked up reviews and found yours. I won’t be going with the company now.

    1. You are most welcome Krystal! I’m glad this review helped.

  52. “Those reviews you see out there that are claiming Legendary Marketer as a scam are probably those who didn’t dive deep into the program, and I am quite certain that they are trying to sell something else to you”

    lol that extract right out of your legendary marketer review is exactly what you are doing with this prosperity of kife review here.

    Talking down a company to get people into legendary marketer.

    I have to be honest though. Both prosperity of life and legendary marketer are great companies with great products.

    And if you know how the universe really works, what goes around comes around. It wont be long before being negative about another company will come back and bite you right in the ass.

    The unfortunate thing is you’ll probably delete this comment because its not going to help you with making sales in legendary marketer. And I right Jack?

    1. Hey John,

      Nope, I won’t delete this comment and you know why? Because I stand for what I said about both programs.

      I have personally tried both programs, and I share my true opinion without any fluff. I’ll share with you exactly what it is, whether or not you take my opinion seriously, the final decision is up to you.

      At the end of the day, I know that I have done my best to inform.

      Would you prefer if I told you that Prosperity of Life is an awesome and amazing program when I didn’t like it at all? Wouldn’t that be telling a lie?

      I don’t know, between being honest (but talking down a company) or lying just to earn a quick buck. Which one would you prefer I do?

      I prefer to stay true to my opinion, and I am sure most people will appreciate that.

      Let me guess, you are one of the members of Prosperity of Life? I am sure.

      Anyway, thanks for your comment.

      Cheers!

  53. You said you could introduce someone to legitimate programs that are worth their time. What might those be? And how are they different from prosperity of life?

    1. For the benefit of the people on the online community, I will not share any links to any programs here. I have taken down all if not any affiliate links on this post. If you are interested to learn about legitimate programs, feel free to contact me on Facebook.

  54. Jeanine Armillotta says:

    Hi I was wondering what you recommend for someone who would like to build a profitable business online? I looked into affiliate marketing with GAZ and saw too many bad reviews… also interested in possibly dropshipping with Shopify.

    Any information would be great!

    1. Hi Jeanine,

      There are basically 3 main routes to earn money online. But, if you are totally new, you need to educate yourself through a course that provides you with a systematic approach to success.

      1. Affiliate Marketing – For your info, GAZ is not affiliate marketing, its Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) instead, they made it look like affiliate marketing. The best course that I recommend for affiliate marketing is Wealthy Affiliate.
      2. Multi-Level Marketing – Like GAZ which promotes the products of Enagic. MLM companies will usually require you to buy products from them, and you will become a distributor for that company. More than 95% of the people fail in this type of business because of the lack of training and support. If you want to win in this opportunity, I would recommend that you start with this course instead.
      3. E-Commerce – As you’ve pointed out, creating a shopify store (dropshipping) or you can build a Amazon FBA business. For dropshipping, I recommend this course, and for Amazon FBA, I recommend this.
      4. Trading and Investment – This comes with risk, and if you are interested, I recommend that you start here.

      Let me know which works for you.

      Cheers!
      ~Jack (BareNakedScam)

  55. I want to thank you for your help. I was contacted by Prosperity of Life to work for them. I am working for online work and I research before I give my money away and came across your article I am looking for assistance making money online. Our life style makes it hard for me to work 9-5 in a building. My Husband is a travel nurse. Thank you so much I look forward to hearing from you.

    1. Hey Melissa,

      Thanks so much for your comment!

      Could Affiliate Marketing be the answer for you? Let me know if this works, if not, I’ll recommend others to you.

      Cheers!
      ~Jack (BareNakedScam)

  56. Thanks for the honest review Jack! ? really appreciate it. Would you say it is similar to the Kangan water/GAZ opportunity? As even though they actually have a product to sell, they focus more on selling the ‘opportunit’ Of making money… I’m seeing some similarities.

    Appreciated

    1. There are similarities between those programs, but at least I would say that the Kangen Water from Enagic does have retail value.

      In my opinion, Enagic is a legitimate Direct Selling company, but Global Affiliate Zone (GAZ) gives a bad name to the company.

      Prosperity of Life on the other hand has little to no retail value and they charge exorbitant amount of money for extravaganzas (which has no purpose or focus).

      I’ll stay away from Prosperity of Life if I was you.

      On the other hand, if you’d like me to introduce you to a legitimate program that is worth your time, do let me know.

      Cheers!
