i , too, joined SMC thinking it would be a great way to make extra money. It took two months to get my kit which made my 30 day trial rather null and void. My first coaching session was useless and did not suggest anything I already didn't know to do. My second coaching session was a sales pitch to sell more coaching sessions with a provision for 1/2 price shipping for 6 months as the cost of shipping is a rip-off itself. How can they assess shipping by the price of the articles that have been ordered. In my case, my orders are sent by Canada Post and I know for a fact that they measure the size of the box and weigh it and the cost to mail it would not be 45% of the value. If my order is under $20.00 then I pay $20.00 for shipping. Does anyone else see the rip-off here? My first order I sold to the Gift Shop where I volunteer at the Hospital. The total was $395.00 and it cost $150.00 to ship. That's crazy!! Not only that but I was very embarassed by the poor quality of the items (all made in China !). The nastiest thing they did was after I ordered the Garden Swing for a Raffle at the hospital. I was not, nor have ever been told until I questioned it 2 months later that that item could not be shipped to Canada. They had however, charged my Credit Card with the cost of the item. Interesting!!

Be vercareful of this company. Like a previous report I also had been told that the Web Site was free. Imagine my surprise when emerchant contacted me and told me they had a special of $1250 that day for the Deluxe site, you guessed it, no free web site. I could ,however, purchase a CD with all the World of Products on it and do my own Web site. I bought the CD. Whatr a piece of junk! You have to be a computer Guru to set it up. I,too, would be interested in a law suit against these people for mis-representation. If anyone is going to do this, please contact me through this site. jym in Canada
