Liberty League International Real Potential or Really Flawed

Sep 5, 2008
Liberty League International is one of many home based business opportunities that you will find while searching the 'net. Is it everything that the top producers and members of the Executive Marketing Council say it is? Or is it perhaps an over-hyped opportunity which has more than run its course? As someone who has been involved with Liberty league for close to a year, I hope to answer some of those questions for you and perhaps save you thousands of dollars in the process.

What is the product? The first level product is called "Beyond Freedom". This is a 90 day personal development course. It includes a workbook, a journal, 3 cd's (which are recordings of Brent Payne and some others reading the material covered in the workbook) a dvd, and some plastic goal setting cards. Oh, I almost forgot, a wristband with the inscription "your life begins now" and two pens. I think that's all. Cost: $495.00 wholesale, $1,495.00 plus $30.00 shipping. Is it worth it? You'll have to be the judge however, think of how many books, courses, even seminars $1,495.00 will purchase. A good quality journal is only about $12.95, so where is the value?

The compensation plan which is hyped to be "second to none" in the home business industry does offer high "profits" but the business model is an Australian 2-up. In this structure you'll be required to pass-up your first two "training sales" to your adviser. Be careful here, as they will tell you "you simply pass up your first two sales but everyone you sponsor will in lturn pass up two sales to you, and those two will pass up two more and so on and so on. Yeah right! Do yourself a favor and Google Australian 2 up and read the facts.

Another important aspect of the compensation plan and business model is that your adviser will probably lose interest in helping you after you have passed up your two "training sales". Why? They will no longer have a vested interest in your business, as a matter of fact, you will now be in direct competition with them. This means that any new marketing secret that they learn might not be shared.

You will be encouraged to purchase both a Liberty Conference (3 day) and a Summit Conference (5 day) ticket. The Liberty ticket retails for $7,995 and your adviser, if they are "qualified" will earn a profit of $5,000 for the sale. The Summit ticket retails for $12,995 with your adviser earning a profit of $8,000. You are told that the reason you should do this is to capitalize your business properly. You are also told that you must take this step in order to be able to qualify to earn future profits on purchases of these tickets by your associates.

Lets look at how some of these numbers work out. In order for you to be in a "profit position" on any of the three levels you must first pass up two sales to your adviser right? Not always. In the Liberty (3 day) Conference and Summit (5 day) Conference tickets, there is one more catch. Check this out. Your adviser has a register for each conference. If you are in the first position on the register, four more tickets must be sold after you for you to be "released" and in a "profit" position. If your adviser isn't actively marketing, you might pass-up each of those four ticket sales at each level in order to qualify yourself. Looking at the numbers, $5,000.00 profit on each Liberty Conference ticket, plus $8,000.00 profit on each Summit Conference ticket, means that including you own purchases of these tickets plus four more of each, your adviser has the potential of earning $65,000.00 "profit" before you are even qualified to earn a DIME. Does this seem fair to you?

You should always do some research on your own. You might want to Google "Liberty League International" for starters. Check out the first page and you'll get an idea of some of the issues that people are having with Liberty League. Next, might I suggest that you Google Australian 2-up, you might even find out about a class action lawsuit which has been filed. All in all not a pretty picture and you might want to do much due diligence prior to investing.
