There is absolutely nothing good to say about Suddenly Slender. It is a horrible to company to work with. Other than selling licenses, it's second business is suing its own licensees once they wake up to see what's really going on. The corporation is filled with lies and does not care about the people it should be supporting. The failure rate of licensees is 95% and they will simply resell the territory over and over again. You are set up to fail.
Several months ago, a group of 100 or so licensees banded together to form an advertising co-op, with the blessing of Suddenly Slender. Why not? We were paying a publicist to get them on shows like Tyra, Ellen, Rachael Ray so they could sell more licenses. Now that these licensees were in communication with one another and sharing their experiences, we had a voice. And there was NOTHING good anyone was saying about Suddenly Slender or Victoria Morton. This scared Suddenly Slender and they have done everything in their power to shut the co-op down. They even sued the two people who formed the co-op, who got them all the advertising, who grew their business. They did all of this to shut us up.
Many licensees have filed bankruptcy, foreclosure of their homes, lost their life savings, etc. Suddenly Slender does not care. They have ruined so many lives!
Within the last few months, the FDA reports have come to light. Some of the smarter licensees have demanded proof from Suddenly Slender that they have done something about it but there has been NO response other than a silly email saying, "don't worry, we took care of it!" We are demanding something in writing, either from the FDA or an independent lab... not a lab with the same address at Suddenly Slender. What kind bull is that?!
Licensees are put in a tough situation right now deciding on how to move forward. Everyone that got into this business wanted to help people lose weight, feel better and get healthier. I love my clients and would never want to harm them so I just want my questions answered.
We're all trying to figure it out but we don't want others to fall into this trap. Before you buy a business, research it all. Google the company and find websites like this. Google the owners and see what comes up. I was a total sucker and just listened to the sales team. My excitement got the best of me and now I'm paying for it. If the company's own licensees are trying to get out, don't do it!!!
If you don't pay attention, you'll pay with pain.
And now they are FRANCHISING! Oh my gosh. Anyone that buys a franchise is a bigger dufus than a licensee. They are selling you nothing more than what we got but now you have to pay 7% royalties off the top. There wasn't a profit margin to begin with and now you have to pay them for nothing. 2% of those royalties go to an advertising fund... to get you on the national enquirer. Don't be fooled. The good, credible PR came from one of the licensees they are suing! That's all going to end once the arbitration is complete.
