Hello All,

If you are thinking of joining Empower Network - Do Not. It is a Total waste of time and your hard earned money.

I joined this company through Vic Strizheus because Vic sounded like he was honest, caring and was really going to help you make money online. I was in this network marketing company for almost 8 months and I could not make any money online.

I watched the videos several times, took diligent notes and followed Vic's instructions to the letter. Vic kept insisting that you had to buy Empower Network products to make money.

Well, I spent $500 on Costa Rica Program. This turned out to be a series of videos hosted by Dave Woods, who is a co-founder of Empower Network. All Dave talked about was fluff and useless non-sense. He talked about his story, how you can hypnotize your prospects into doing anything you want them to do, all the while mentioning in every video to purchase more products from Empower Network.. [continued below]....


There was absolutely no meat to the videos. He did not impart any internet knowledge about how to make money online, there were no websites mentioned where you can go and generate traffic. You can get a better internet education on YouTube and watching the free videos plenty of people have posted. I found this product to be a total waste of time. I was so furious after going through all the videos that I requested and received a refund of my purchase price. I kept speaking to my mentor about the useless crap in this video series. He kept telling me to buy more of their products. Of course, so more money can go in his pocket. I kept saying to him if the Costa Rica program is any indication of their products then I am not spending one penny more on this crap. Shortly thereafter I left Empower Network.

One thing I noticed is they offer big dreams, a great deal of fluff without any proof of actual income earnings. I asked my mentor many times to show me cancelled checks or a statements proving he is making money with the system. He kept telling me he made a $110,000 in 7 months. I said "Show Me". He never did.

While Dave Woods is telling you in all the videos to purchase more of their products, they are also trying to get you to go to their network meetings. These meetings are held all over the country. You have to purchase a ticket for these events, fly out, get a hotel, car and have travel expense money available. Wood's claims that you will perform better if you attend these events. That is like saying if a carpenter buys a new hammer he will all of a sudden build a better home.

This company is nothing more than an online Ponzi scheme. All of the products from Empower Network are useless garbage where you will spend a lot of money and get almost nothing out of them.

If anybody starts promoting Empower Network to you run in the other direction as fast as you can. Do not spend any money, do not waste your time and do not believe the crap they try to force down your throat. These people are nothing but dream stealers and swindlers.

All smoke and mirrors

AUTHOR: layla copla - ()

Yep as I said in he title, all smoke and mirrors here. The "stuff" this offers you can find for free or much cheaper. I also must say that this is one of the shadiest, and cult like programs I have EVER come acrosss. I mean that. The people in this generally are cult like, and will do and say anything to get sales and make that "100% commission" as they like to claim. Well when fees and all that come out those 100% commisions are all bs.

Newsflash people you do not have to pay 25+ a month to blog, and the fact these people who created this got rich duping suckers is amazing quite frankly. They say a sucker is born every second, so will you be the next one here? Please don't, and all this is, is smoke and mirrors. All a motivational audio/training session, and a blog, which they suck you thousands of dollars in for it. Like I said majority if not all of this you can find for free or cheaper.

Also some very shady practices have been done here. From lies, deciet and all the way to link switching. The leders in Empower have been caught on the prosperity team switching the little guy/gals link out for theirs to real more leads in. It is just sad and ridiculous. The only reason the top earners are in this is because they had a huge following/downline prior to joining, most do not make a dime with this mess.

Please do your research people, there are honest and balanced reviews. Here is one I appreciated. This was someone who was actually in it, and left and shared the real truth of what it is and about, and what it includes. Check it out here -----> honest review on empower network
