Just thought I would add my two cents to the growing number of companies complaining about discovery beach australia,


the 14 year old company which was founded in 2000


There used to be a UK operation, - it seems DB was a franchise type organisation - though they can't call it a franchise as that as they would need to be regulated there were a number of UK small companies involved with the Aussies, but if you described it most would see it as such

These companies have since severed connections with Discovery Beach.

I know that there were discussions and some monies are owed to the Brits.

If this is how they treat their own partners, how do they treat their customers?

I wonder how much roadkill there is amongst the rest of their partners?

Is Discovery Beach Australia going to pay up what it owes people in the UK?

the greenplanet web site is VERY SIMILAR - it even mentions parainvestors the well known discovery beach trademarked name, just Bernard and Wendy have left their profiles off.


if they can't what does it tell us about their ability to run a business?
if they think they can just close and re-open under a different name, what does this tell us about their integrity?

It would seem to me that Bernard and Wendy's only real skill is lining their own pockets

Bernard - would you care to comment you've had a long time to reply do you intend on settling your debts or just running away?

Bernard O'Brien - Still Going - in Herbalife now !!

AUTHOR: Chris Barrell - (United Kingdom)

Looks like with the advent of the massive SCAM being Discovery Beach, Bernard O'Brien is now focusing all his efforts into his Herbalife Business.

I'm sure that Herbalife will be stoked to find out that such a SCAMMER, being Bernard O'Brien is involved with their business.

I wonder how long this will last ???

thanks for the update

AUTHOR: Concerned Entrpreneur - (United Kingdom)

It seems from the above testimonial that Bernard and Wendy have great skill in working with a multi-level marketing business - thanks for the report of their success as distributors

Just because someone can work with a multi-level/network marketing company does not mean that they have any skills in corporate finance, if so the venture capital community wouldn't need to look for ex accountants/engineers/investment bankers ----they would just get someone from Amway or whatever


HOWEVER
this report is about their skills and conduct as an "investment group", and their walking away from the people they owe money to.

They owe people money in the UK, they are ignoring requests to settle invoices,,,the discovery beach sites are down....what news on the IPOs they have in the bag? what news of the discovery capital fund?


what other stories are there, or are they just a group of MLM people who are claiming to be investors?

Our Story

Bernard O'Brien and Wendy Stockden-Brock
International Global Expansion Team (GET)

Our story is a little different as we were already extremely busy with our own international business and the last thing we needed to do was add another one!

Due to nature of our other company which involves a lot of international travel and working across several time zones, Bernard was always feeling tired and had sought advice form several doctors, to no avail.

After spending a few days with Alan Burrell on a business trip he asked what Alan was on, as his energy was amazing and of course he said Herbalife!

So he said "what do I have to do to get some" and joined the business, in August 2003

Over the next fast few weeks I have realized that the program works on many levels especially on the mental attitude and energy and this was paramount to the output that was needed on a daily basis.

In only a few months of being on the products Bernard lost over 17 kilos and 3 holes in his belt! His skin cleared up on his face after years of irritation and cortisone creams, he is also now off all Depression and Kidney medication.

Wendy has lost over 35. kilos, and 3 dress sizes and her Diabetes is now balanced and the same every morning, and she no longer has back pain after 20 years and, sleep's right through at night. She has stopped taking one of the Diabetes medications as well as the cholesterol tablets.

Our energy and stamina on a daily basis is fantastic and we haven't felt this good in years.

We started introducing the product to some or our circle of influence to help them with various health issues and knew that the program will help change their lives, this also helped us in build a strong retail customer base.

Our original investment in the business ( A Supervisor order) returned us 10% in the first month, and was fully repaid within 3 months.

In addition we are now earning a regular monthly income that allows us to semi-retire from our other business and to both work in our Herbailife business Full time

We also Love the International Travel that the company provides for us not to mention the Parties they put on!

The Vision of Herbalife is congruent to our Personal Vision which is all about Changing peoples Lives into Wealth and Wellness and because of this we are now both totally committed to living the Herbalife Life for the rest of our lives.

We Love our Team and get so much pleasure in seeing them growing successful businesses on a part-time basis, as well as the changes that full Nutrition has made to them all.

We love our lifestyle, our Freedom and the choices we now have available to us , because we made a commitment to our desires and now manifestation can happen.

The Wellness industry is the next trillion dollar industry and the time is RIGHT NOW to get started.

If you would like to hear more or just have a chat please go the contact page and get in touch we would love to hear from you.


Cheers

Bernard and Wendy
