Watch out for any company that has ads in the paper for employment if they have alliance in the name in Dallas, Austin, as well as Oklahoma City. The Dallas name is The Alliance Group and they are at 2700 N. Stemmons Freeway Suite 1200. This is a multilevel company and the guy that runs the training company called The Leading Edge is one of the biggest scam artists on the face of the earth. He tries to come off as a family man and that he cares about people. When in reality the main thing he cares about is that people pay at least $259 every month to go to his seminars so they can become rich just like him.
My son was involved with this company for a while and I went to one of his trainings and while he is a good speaker I didnt understand why he would need his downline to pay to see him when he made money off of what they sold every month. He told everyone at the seminar that I was at that his seminar company didn't make any money. They were mostly young kids so I could see why they might buy this. I did my research and found that he made some money off his downline but I also found out it wasn't as much as he says it is. Ask him to show you a copy of his 1099 from the company or his last months check I bet he won't!
I also talked with alot of the young people there and being inquisitive I wanted to know how they were doing. One girl told me that she hadn't made a bonus check yet and she had been involved with the company for 4.5 months but she was sure this month would be huge. My son also showed me who the top people were and one of them even ate lunch with us. At lunch I saw this person ask to borrow money for lunch because they had forgotten their wallet. I knew that was a lie because these people were supposed to be rich and to keep up an image that would never happen.
I also realized this guy is taking advantage of people by charging them every month for a training that my son says is basically the same thing every time. Don't get me wrong it is fun and enertaining but these people are not what they say they are. If anyone reads this please look at the numbers I have put below and understand this man does make money of his trainings and alot of it!
He charges $250 for his trainings and averages from what I was told at least 150 people that attend one of his seminars. At that rate he brings in over $37,000/ mo on trainings. I understand he does have expenses to run the company. All the equipment is owned The sound guy told me and he said it cost over $30,000. If it did he got scammed. He could buy everything for under $15,000 and that is top of the line. That was bought over two years ago when he started the company. He has an office lets say that costs $5,000/ mo. To rent a hotel for the weekend costs max $2,000(I checked) He has a staff of two and their travel expenses,say another $5,000.
Lets just say his company has expenses of $15,000/mo.
= $22,000 left over, for not making any money that isn't bad pocket change.
It is time for people to wake up and understand he makes this while other people suffer and scrimp and do whatever it takes because that next training will be the one that sets it up for them. The only one that is being taken care of is him.
I also understand that there are a few T.V. stations that are investigating him and his group and the authorities can't be far behind. I hope this will help at least one person! I know for most people who are in it now won't have their minds changed until it is to late. Thank god my son only went in a little bit.
