Coastal Vacations - Greatest Virtual Office Makes You Happy I have spent over $11,000 with this Co. I can not even get a phone call from individuals to answer questions or live up to any of their many promises to help me, in fact I actually had to hire a personal mentor to help me get started and they had promised to take care of the complete fee for his services, and I still ended up paying another $495 myself.

I have spent over $11,000 with this company, they will not return phone calls, they do not show any respect what so ever to someone who is a Director 3.
They call back maybe once out of 20 or so phone calls, ask you what the problem is, then say they will look into the problem and never call back with an answer.
It is in writing "Your director trains and assists you in making your first two sales.
The director retains the new sales. You become a director and now purchase direct from the wholesaler.
Since I bought in at a Director 3 level, I was told that they would help me to get started in the same way as stated above.
Multiple people in this company have made multiple promises which were never carried out. These people were Chris Williams, Gary Thomas, Virgil, Cedric and a few more that never returned calls or gave the help they promised.
Also, they supposedly have an automated system which is supposed to connect you to other affiliates so that should help to bring in some type of income and so far nothing has come in at all.
In 4 months with this company which claims that you can make thousands my return for $11,000 has been $400.

People purchasig into the business end of Coastal Vacations are independent distributors. I started my Coastal Business back in February 2006 and I too worked very closely with my Director, attended various Live Q&A calls as well as attended Live Seminar/Training events.

It did take a while for the ball to get rolling - partially because I was working extremely part time hours while working a full time job and partially because I was new to the industry and learning by doing.

It sounds like you are an "orphaned" Associate that purchased a Level 3 Package.

What happens is that some Directors for a number of resons will no longer be actively working their Coastal Business. What you need to do is to find another Level 3 Coastal Director, and make sure you are comfortable with them and question them thoroughly on their business plan and how they market the products to produce an income. Some are doing B2B for incentives, others are doing Fundraising, other Recruit, etc.

It sounds like the answer you are getting back from the Leadership team is assuming that you Purchased a Level 3 Director Kit and you have not received your Director's Release which is earned with the first two sales going up to your business mentor.

That is the training fee that all training Directors earn for their diligence and training efforts to bring you up to speed, help you with prospecting, marketing, closing sales, and a lot of other hangs on training. It is up to the individual Director's if they choose to do this one on one, or by group teleconference call. It is your business and you can design the training program to help your new associates earn that Director's Release ASAP.

Something isn't working in the mix and based on the report, I am speculating as to common problems. I have picked up a few Coastal orphans in the past year.

Go to www.officialcoastaltraining.com (Official Coastal Training) and look at the calendar of New Associate calls and other training calls ot help get you started.

My organization is multi-facted but Coastal remains my primary income earning segment of my business.

Best of luck to you.
