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

My wife and I attended the seminar in Conroe, Tx they made it sound so easy but as we got to making the web pages and looking for drop shippers and finding the hidden costs we have been trying to get out of this. If anyone can help please contact me. All I can say is if you get a letter saying free lunch and organizer throw it away.

Curiously enough, SOL is still going strong in your area. Here's a recent news article (8/25/05) from Arkansas KATV Channel 7 warning consumers about SOL. They've included the new warnings Texas has mandated SOL now include in the literature they use at seminars:

"IF YOU PLAN ON ATTENDING, KEEP IN MIND THIS ADVICE (which is presented to and signed by all seminar participants in Texas): If: 1) you do not have a computer, 2) do not have a general knowledge of using a computer, 3) know little or nothing about e-commerce, 4) do not presently have a product to sell, 5) do not have a plan for opertaing a business, 6) do not have sufficient capital to start and operate a business apart from the cost of this software, or 7) fit one or any combination of the previous categories, it is highly recommended that you fix these weaknesses before beginning the process of building your first e-commerce website."

KATV interviews a person who has similar drop-shipper complaints as you do. You might find the article an interesting read.

Best of luck getting your refund.
