Rip-off Report Investigation:

Editors UPDATE: Positive Rating and Recognition has been given to Wendy Stevens for its Commitment to Excellence in customer service.

Rip-off Reports investigation of Wendy Stevens uncovers an ongoing commitment to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that Wendy will always work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any complaints or concerns. Wendy listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services she offers and the support for those services.

One top executives in the internet marketing industry stated to Rip-off Report, that Wendy Stevens personal philosophy is that her clients are a precious resource. We must listen to our clients and respond properly. This is the best way to ensure I will maintain a successful enterprise both now and in many years to come.

Another top executive of the company stated to Rip-off Report, that Wendy Stevens personal business philosophy is based on the premise that Wendy Stevens strives to add value in its services as they understand that a successful business model is based on value-added services, and client care. Wendy Stevens mission statement says it all; "Our goal is to provide our clients the best quality, value and professional excellence in the industry." Some of the other things Rip Off Report learned in the course of its investigation: Wendy Stevens business was established in 2004 to provide professionals and entrepreneurs elite marketing training. Wendy has trained thousands of individuals in that time with a handful of personal coaching clients and is recognized as a leading expert and premier trainer in the internet marketing world.

Rip-off Report has confirmed that Wendy Stevens takes quality control very seriously. Wendy has recently put a lot of effort into ramping up her support team and client relation processes including full time availability to clients to assist with any issues that develop. Rip-off Report was pleased to learn that Wendys past and current approach to business is focused on its pledge to total commitment towards client satisfaction.

WENDY STEVENS RESIGNED FROM LIBERTY LEAGUE, BETTER OPPORTUNITY, MORE BENEFICIAL TO CLIENTS, AND FOR HER ASSOCIATES WENDY HAD NO CONTROL OVER THE WAY BUSINESS WAS RUN, MAKING IT BAD FOR EVERYONE For over six years individuals have enjoyed Wendy Stevens engaging training style and have been attracted to her genuine caring for each individual she works with one on one. Wendy''s unique philosophy of giving back to others through sharing her success in internet marketing earned her a stellar reputation in the industry at large. Rip-off Report received complaints from individuals claiming to be her Liberty League associates prior to Jan 2009. In several cases the individuals did not even appear on Wendy Stevens'' official sales register nor did their IP addresses match the reports submitted--in other words, their stories were made up. Rip-off Report has investigated each Wendy''s reports and also found that some complaints were related to customer service issues which Wendy did not directly control.

Wendy Stevens began her career as internet entrepreneur with Liberty League, but the company made a series of fateful decisions that resulted in it going out of business in mid-2009. Rip-Off Report discovered that Wendy Stevens had no ownership in Liberty League. Although Wendy trained for that company she did not control staffing decisions, product quality, customer service policies, refund policies, nor any other control mechanism to ensure customer service for her associates. It was a very frustrating situation for her personally.

When the leaders of Liberty League launched a new business venture in late 2009, Wendy had grave doubts about its viability but did everything she could to help it succeed out loyalty both to the owners and her associates. When it became clear to Wendy that this new venture would not in fact succeed, and that her associates had been left without a way to make a living, Wendy Stevens resigned from the business to find another, better opportunity, for her associates. In doing so, Wendy Stevens walked away from the majority of her income. How many entrepreneurs have that kind of integrity and dedication to their team? Wendy did succeed in finding a great new opportunity for her team with LifePath, where she is helping people set records again in internet marketing. She hired a full customer service and customer resolutions team to ensure that her associates were being treated as VIPs.

Wendy Stevens recognizes that complaints posted on Rip-off Report (true or not) are issues that need to be addressed and if handled correctly can be valuable learning opportunities. With the feedback generated by Rip-off Reports Investigation Wendy Stevens has made organizational changes allowing her clients a more streamlined approach to problem resolution and a total overall commitment to her client experience.

In summary, after our investigation, which included discussions with Wendy Stevens and many of her past and current associates, Rip-off Report is convinced that Wendy Stevens has been and is committed to quality delivery of services resulting in total client satisfaction.

===================== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED

===================== Wendy Stevens, Liberty League International "Your Mentor for Success" or "Your Money for My Success" Scottsdale internet and nationwide

WARN: Your mentor for success or Your Money For My Success

(All the stories below are my personal experience from what I get and observed, but it is very reliable; there are other great leader of the company who know exactly which person I am talking about when I just made a simple description of Wendy Stevens)

Wendy Stevens has a very attractive website: yourmentorforsuccess.com. I believe this domain name must have lured many people into her organization feel excited that this powerful mentor will direct them to success. Her voice can''t be more nice and she cares about your success.

The reality is, it is not "yourmentorforsuccess", it is "YourMoneyForMySuccess". There are literally 2 types of leaders: the first type builds their success by helping others succeed; the other type, however accumulated their enterprise by using other people''s bloody-and-sweat money as their stepping stone to a higher level.

Wendy Stevens, though the top 5 income earners of the company, there barely are any big names come from her organization, other leader describe her as no team duplication, and the only reason she could succeed is what --by lying, high sales pressure, and faking to treat you very well/compliment on you so you will surrender to her and submit your money right away. Let me explain:

1. Paint a faking good picture of her in the public: As you can see from her website (yourmentorforsuccess.com), what a loving mom and soft voice that express her desire to help you without a doubt. The reality is once you get started with her, she is barely available. If you keep pitching, you might be able to get in, then be ready to finish your questions as soon as possible because she might ends up the conversation at any minute.

The slow, soft voice is just a public show. In reality, she is fast talking, barely patient enough to help you. Don''t expect she will mentor you hand by hand, she is extremely selfish. Let me give you one of the examples:

She is constantly in contact with an internet marketing expert to help her internet advertising. And she is doing well on it. But she is not asking this expert to train us, nor is she willing to train us herself. What she did instead is that one day she suddenly comes up with ANOTHER internet marketing guy, and she said this guy has done a great service to her that she is extremely enthusiastic that we use this guy for our internet marketing.

Normally, if she is so energetic to do something for you, it has to be there are benefits for her. I doubted in the first sense, talked to the assistant of the internet marketing guy. The assistant says she doesn''t know if Wendy is using service with us or not, Wendy has been on the internet for a while she has her own campaigns So there are 2 reasons Wendy is recommending this to her associates:

a. she did use this internet marketing guy, but internet success can not be duplicated easily. With she brings so many profit for that guy, he will be able to concentrate on her campaigns, make it excellent while still make a lot of money.

b. she might not be using it. But for all these referrals, she got incentives.

Since she insisted this is a great guy, I tried their service. Find out all they did is the basic staff of setting up your yahoo and google account you already know. And that is it. They are no longer willing to do anything more despite the expensive monthly payment you made to them. All associates are just victims.

The question is: why she won''t recommend the other internet expert to help us for free; she absolutely can do it. But rather she is recommending us such a paid service????

There is only one reason that can make her sweet and patient to you: that is money!

2. BE AWARE if she suddenly treat you very nice, she is after you for money: If you are her associate, don''t stay close to her, your loyalty will just turn yourself in as her next pray for production purchasing.

Her attitude will suddenly turn 180. She become so nice and give you bunch of good compliments. You will then believe yourself as being a leader and you buy the expensive product because you "know" it is a good investment.

3. high sales pressure: if you aren''t willing to buy the product right away, she will tell you that she is highly successful and therefore very busy too, she can''t take it if you don''t buy. Naive home business seeker who believed this great perfect for your success mentor will be the reason they become successful, will agree to buy the product right away and even afraid of she won''t help them.

4. Lying, lying lying: Here is another approach to sell product. She will tell you that she wasn''t successful at that time either (but later she did it) so you should just position yourself at the next level, then success will come. But the fact turned her in: there is proven record she already had big success by the time. So you can see she will do thing at any cost, ethical or not, as long as for her profit.

For all she has done to me, I still tried to trust her, believing she is the leader. So I participated her team call as usual. She was so gorgeous on the phone, she is motivating the team, excellent speech, and if an associate had a question, she will try to answer all their questions and ask if there are any more. I hit my head, saying you are too skeptical, what a nice leader. But suddenly there is something turned the corner again: she told everyone, folks you got to make it and believe, you know when I first got started, I was over $110k in debt! Oh my goodness, how come her debt flied from $65k to $110k now. And she continued talked, this team is growing, we got so many new associates standing out as leaders and summit advisors.

Well I always heard her talked about new submit advisors, but why she never mention their names or introduce them to the team so we can learn. Those are good role models, why she is not doing it. Of course she always got new associate through all the techniques I mentioned above. But she forgot to do the deductions: associates that are leaving or not producing results.

In a word, she''ll do anything, at any cost, sacrificing others to make sure her pocket is full. The example below would blow your head off.

5. She will steal your potential customer: If you are ever going to ask her to help you make a sale, and especially even she had made thousands from you, if you haven''t turned in more customers for her, with her greedy instinct she will steal your customers. You will find out that a customer who is very likely to join suddenly disappeared. So there is only one rule here: as long as you joined me, buy products, make me profitable, but I won''t provide that much support, it is your business your responsibility (so don''t blame me for not helping). And if you don''t work well, I''ll just take your customers as a supplement.

Even I had always have some skeptical feeling for Wendy Stevens for the ways she operate things and for all the mistreatment she did to me, I still tried to vision and picture her as a good person. It is a shame that I betrayed myself by not listening to my gut feeling. And this is my outcome. If a fool like me wakes up finally, it probably wouldn''t be hard for you too.

If you still had the fantasy that joining a successful people will make you successful as well, be careful. Only find successful people who build their success on other people''s success, not other people''s sacrifice.

More on Wendy Stevens

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

Before LLI, Wendy Stevens was a Vanderbilt University women's lacrosse coach. Google it if you don't beleive me and see for yourself. Wendy Stevens appears as a photo testimonal in several other LLI'ers websites where she says just that.

In the link below you can see what a former LLI associate named Laura Stepanov had to say about her experience with Wendy Stevens in her own words.

Laura Stepanov's LLI summit advisor was this same Wendy Steven all of you speak about. Wendy Stevens is the only person in LLI who was a "former Vanderbilt University women's lacrosse coach". Read Laura Stepanov's experience with Wendy Stevens here:

www.npros.com/2006%5C7%5C2%5Cmarketing-scheme-takes-a-tricky-turn/

And for those of you too lazy to cut and paste the link onto a new browser here it is:


Marketing scheme takes a tricky turn

"Multilevel business transformed lives, mostly from better to worse, former participant says.

Source: The Express-Times Laura Stepanov kept hearing how she was "plugging into the system."

The problem was this: Stepanov could never quite figure out the system. And $28,000 in losses later, the Wilson Borough woman is frustrated by her experiences with an Arizona-based multilevel marketing business and a former Vanderbilt University women's lacrosse coach she trusted.

"I really didn't think I could get rich quick," said Stepanov, who was looking to raise more cash to improve her income and help a friend who was facing a mortgage foreclosure.

Last month, the Arizona Attorney General's Office settled a lawsuit against Liberty League International LLC of Scottsdale, Ariz., and its main operators, Brent Payne and Shane Krider, for $115,000. "

More fact about Wendy Stevens, I am not surprised at all!

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

Check out here:

http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/ripoff192238.htm:

"Someone who's summit advisor was the person you hear on the training calls named "Wendy Stevens" lost about $28,000 doing the same thing you did. They filed with the Attorney General to get their money back. This lady was getting started with LLI to make money in order to help a friend who was about to lose her house to forclosure. I think that's what caused the lawsuit against them in May of 2006.

How could an unethical person make so much money?!

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

She is currently in the liberty league business. My point is more about the real her beneath her makeup and public image, rather than the company she is in.

I believe the universe has a balance. What doesn't belong to you, you can't move it. The undeserved part she get from others, she will pay back maybe not to the person she took from, but somehow pay back in other ways. The timing just haven't come yet.

What is the Mentoring FOR?

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


.I read the OP's report, checked out the noted website, and am still left wondering exactly what the business was/is? What is she supposed to help you do? Is it selling?

The website was rather laughable in that she states If you notice, I'm not jumping up and down telling you how much you can make or how much I've made. I am not full of BS, hype, and ridiculous promises.

This statement follows umpteen pictures of her travels, testimonials, and her own little bio stating I live in my dream home, own investment properties and spend several weeks a year in a vacation beach home. I've traveled 14 times nationally and internationally in the last 12 months. I no longer worry about paying for my children's college educations or fear retirement.

Not jumping and up and down, huh. Not full of BS, hype or ridiculous promises, yet she has a banner:

What are YOU Looking For?
To double, triple or even quadruple your current income?
The excitement of your success and achievment? (note the typo in achievement - nothing screams "professionalism" like a typo.)
The luxury and freedom that real wealth can provide?
To finally start spending your time with the people who are important to you?

Noooo, none of us are looking for any of THAT. And there certainly aren't a thousand other websites extolling identical tales, yet, she claims to not be jumping up and down, etc.

Anyway, found it entertaining, but in no way enlightening. What does she do? What is the business? What is she offering that would entice someone to pay her money? I fully understand mentoring, but mentoring to do WHAT?

The OP included Liberty League in the title, which I am well aware of, thanks to this site, but then it's not mentioned any further. Is there a connection?

Additional information would really be appreciated. Thank you.
