My wife and I needed our taxes done. So we went the tax preparer.
The suite was a WFG office. We had our taxes complete. Because I wasn't working I was asked if I would come to a meeting. So I did.
I saw a video and a presentation about WFG and how they helped families. I was interested so I went to another meeting this one was a different type. Yes you can work at your own business,Make 30k or more a year.Part time. So I told my wife that I'm joining up.
Cost $100 for a background check. I was told that I will learn a lot from the meetings. To tell the truth every meeting was a presentation of how to recruit people to come to the meeting. Or how to have people sign up for the ULs.
You need 25 people to call about the meetings. Never about how to run your business. Than I was told if I go to the big meeting in Vegas hat I will understand the company and they will teach me what I needed to know. Basically it was 4 days of cramming the WFG lifestyle in your face.
Nothing about business training. Than the kicker WFG hepling 100,000 families in 100 days. Companay wide of course. Sign up and pledge that you will do it.
Than they gave you a phone number to text your pledge. I didn't do it. Came home from Vegas and told my wife about it. Day after meeting than more meetings.
My wife told me after one of the meetings that you are not the person I married. You changed. Get out of this NOW. So after just 2 months in to the company I quit.
I will tell you that it takes 80 contacts to maybe get 10 people to the meetings 1 person might join. There are people who made alot of money in this co. But there are many more that never do. I met a man who was in the co.
for 3 years and hasn't made a dime yet. Yes you will have to have a license to sell there UL. This has the feeling of a cult. Pressure to talk to strangers about coming out to a meeting weighs on you all the time.
I tried and was given wrong phone numbers. WFG tells you to except rejection. Part of the game. But it gets to you.
Costs $100 Background check.
Vegas trip $2000, Clothes$200.
Monetary Loss: $2300.
