Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Start Up Essentials is gone.....they shut the doors last year. The owner (Robert Harris) is running another company...Big Fly Media. They ripped off so many people. Try to get some of your money back. The company had managers with criminal records!! They had sales reps who laughed about how much money they were making per sale...$500. Some reps. were very good at scamming people. They were making $10,000 - $23,000 a month. Not bad, huh? Well...the company found a way to get most of that commission back from the reps. by telling them that the accounts were chargebacked or cancellations. This whole company scammed people and they knew. Thanks to the managment staff: Robert Harris, Ted Thompson, Kevin Devoto, Paul Ghassemi, Tim Carr...etc., etc.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

More Internet Fakers

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

Why doesn't anyone on the internet have enough balls to post something without lying about their identity?

This is Greg (cohawk), and I don't appreciate whatever gutless excuse for a person is posting stuff under my alias.

First off, I wouldn't post hear-say. I know the facts. Second, the only reason I would come to a place like this is the reason I'm here now (i.e. doing a Google search for cohawk, and finding this entry).

I would suggest if you want people to BELIEVE the hype you are typing here, you might want to tell the truth. How about starting with the name?

The point is this... and this is my opinion, Startup Essentials was a company with a great opportunity for employees, as well as customers. The two most prominent mistakes in the growth of the company were:
A) Selling a quality business startup package to people who shouldn't EVER be in charge of a business.
B) Hiring sleazy "salespeople", like the person who made this post, who just worked at this company between stops at car dealerships, debt-settlement companies, and/or collection agencies.

The company is gone... move on with your life.
