This company used to be the IWLA-International Women's Leadership Association but it looks like they had so much negative press online that they changed their name to continue the scam. Beth Johnston (Perchuk) or whatever she calls herself now, used to work in the Who's Who industry. She was the former president of the IWLA or International Women's Leadership Association.

The IWLA and Beth Perchuck Johnston was charged by the NYS Attorney General Eric Sneiderman for deceptive business practices and ripping people off!


She is a professional scammer. STAY AWAY from this woman and this organization!

They sent me an email stating that I was honored among women in education. [continued below]....

..... This is part of the email:

“On behalf of The Global Society of Empowered Women (TheGSEW), it is my distinct pleasure to notify you that, in consideration of your contribution to family, career, and community, you have been selected as a woman of outstanding leadership in Education.”

At the end it noted to register, and since I wasn't sure what it was about I registered. There was absolutely no mention of a fee.

A couple of days later, I got a call from my ‘personal liaison’ to the group. She fluffed my ego, but having experience with another group with this marketing technique, I very nicely explained that I was hit by Hurricane Sandy and am still rebuilding.

This didn’t faze her – she continued her promo. I again nicely interrupted her and explained that if there was a membership fee involved I wasn’t at all interested.

She continued, saying that’s okay, at the end of her information I could choose what I wanted to do. And, again she continued.

So, again I interrupted and explained that I was still rebuilding from Sandy and wasn’t in a position to spend money. Again she went on.

Finally, still being polite, I said the conversation was a waste of both our time and that there was no point to it.

She finally got that I wasn’t buying and asked if she could contact me at a future date.

It was a 'hard sell' call and she just didn’t want to take no for an answer.

Anyway, the point is to be aware of who’s contacting you and for what purpose. While it’s ego boosting to have an organization tell you you’re great and worthy of being a member, take a step back and question their motive, especially if they contact you cold..

While some organizations, if you can afford it, are worthwhile for the connections and networking, some aren’t.

And, if you get a ‘hard sell’ call, ask yourself why they’re so pushy.
