"I wouldn't recommend this company for someone in financial dire straits."
I typed this on a mobile and made an error there.

I admit that I fell for the okey-doke. They built up my confidence, pumped me full of law of attraction nonsense, and sold me a dream, causing me to foolishly squander money I had saved to teach English in China. Now, I get to stay home this summer with no money, and I get to miss out on teaching overseas and living my real dream.
The WFG branch that I was recruited by, Axianta Financial Partners, was disingenuous from the start. When I asked if the "background check fee", which was an "administrative fee" in my case, along with the 52 Hours and CA insurance license were the only fees that I had to pay for, they said yes. Lo and behold, I'm having to pay for continuing education, errors and omissions, and a mandatory "kickstarter" event which is just a day-long BPM with more motivational speaking and dudes talking about how their wives are their better halves, nothing that would actually get money in my pocket.
Are there people making it with this company? Sure, there probably are. Would I recommend this as an opportunity to make it big or in financial dire straits? Absolutely not. Most people likely will not make it, and most people will likely put out more money than they get back, that is if they get anything at all. These people are liars and they teach agents tactics to get under their victims skins, things that some may call foul play. It's all "connotation", I guess.
In closing, I must say that Axianta Financial Partners did indeed take a cue from King Leonidas as he is portrayed in the movie, 300, whose shield and sword adorn the offices of some SMDs; they "gave me nothing, but took from me everything!"
