Nouveau Riche marketing is not a true business opportunity as they claim. First of all, this company has too much control over your business. They can kick you out of the company and the business that YOU have built will only benefit someone else: Jim Piccolo.

We know at least dozens of people of who got kicked out of this company for one reason or another. This is not a true business opportunity. For you ultimately have no control or saying over your business.

They claim the opportunity to build residual income on marketing side, and leveraging other people's time. This is false. We know people who built substantial business in marketing and they got kicked out of the company and they lost all their residual income and everything they have built.

Clarification

AUTHOR: Melanie - (U.S.A.)

I am currently an independent sales associate (ISA) with Nouveau Riche. This report has several lies which I feel bound to clarify. First, people get kicked out from doing business with Nouveau Riche for specific reasons. When you first sign up with the company you sign an agreement which states that if you do not follow the guidelines set by the company as established in the ISA guide and subsequent addendums then you agree that you can be removed as a representative of the company. I, personally, have never met an individual who has been removed by the company. The few that have left the company that I know of just didn't put in the time and effort necessary to earn well.

Second, the report made mention to residual income. Nouveau Riche does not offer residual income. The only thing that could possibly be conceived as residual income is if someone happens to finance their education through Nouveau Riche's financing program. In this case, the ISA is given their commission over time as opposed to receiving it in one lump sum- they get their commission paid as the company receives their payment. If a person is terminated with the company, they forfeit their right to receive the commission of what would have been "certifying sales" for those individuals they brought in. In this case, I believe but may be mistaken, this money is given to the person that brought in the individual who had been terminated- Not to Jim Piccolo. Nouveau Riche operates much like an insurance company, we get the commission for a certain number of sales of the people that come in below us (this concept is difficult for me to explain in writing- I do much better with a paper to diagram it out). Again, though, this is a one time commission earned off of one sale, not money that will be received time and time again off of doing the work once.

Finally, you can make a substantial income with this company, but like every other legitimate work from home opportunity, you have to put in the time and effort necessary to make it work. If you follow the guidelines set forth by the company, you have complete control over your business.
