I noticed on Facebook that some people in Bells are involved with WorldVentures. Just wondering what your thoughts are about this company if you are a member. They sell Dreamtrips memberships for WorldVentures. Looking for something positive about this company. Any input? I've heard all the negative stuff and am looking for something good or promising. These are the people holding up blue signs that read "You Should Be Here"

Yeah, find someone u know and trust thats involved! Ask them their experience. I love everything about it. Been on multiple trips through the program and my family enjoys it as well! If u do the biz side of it, PLEASE realize that ANY and all "negativity" will come frm people who aren't involved...or people who WERE and either did it wrong and quit, or expected something for nothing and quit.
You can join just for the fun. But the biz is NOT for negative or lazy people. It does take effort, but as long as your doing it the right way, with the right people, you will win!
Any "research" in an unregulated blog or rant site is NOT credible research.(yes even what I'm saying should not hold much value to u) However, there are people who win and people who lose. Same company, same product, same comp plan....so the ONLY variable is the person in question. Some are winners, some are whiners and its VERY easy to tell them apart.
Inc 5000, BBB, Ernst and Young accounting firm, DSA, Success From Home, ect, are REGULATED sources that will give u FACTS, not opinions, about the credibility of WV...or u can take the opinion of some stranger blogging about whatever he/she wants to...but thats kinda like doing "research" on a bathroom wall.:)

WorldVentures is a company that came out about six years ago. They are offering something everyone wants, travel and money. Think about it as Groupon and the same concept of Costco. Groupon has multiple offers and you pay for the one that applies to you. Costo, you pay for a membership to pay for wholesale prices. The more member = the cheaper the prices could be. I have friends that have traveled over four locations in six months. The same group of friends also do the business side (Keep in Mind that it started in Arizona and connected all the way to New York). Some are driving BMW or are qualified to pick it up. The other side of it that many people do not mention is the "heping others" side. One way to help is by going to trips to Guatemala and third worl;d countries tyo help build schools out of plastic bottles and buying brecelets made by people diagnosed with HIV/Aids, which they receive wages for the labor.

On Saturday, October 6, 2012 was a woman empowering event in New York. Words cannot describe the power of their presentations. It is a business that you start with a single application, but it is supported by many individuals.

Its a pyramid scheme....the ppl on top makes the most Money! & gets paid off of everybody other members bring in..u don't start to see any money until u have 6 people under you. Meaning you have 2 recruit 6 people who each have to pay a certain amount depending on their age 2 invest in you & they have 2 recruit 6 or more people & so on & so.forth. As for the BMW its NOT free! Think about it! Nothing is free you still have 2pay for it plus the car note.Join at your own risk!

First and foremost a pyramid scheme had no products and is illegal.com panies that try this ate shutdown within a year or two. WV has been around. over seven years, but I'm not gonna talk about it. Proof is in the pudding. You call this a pyramid because people on top make more money? Let's say you work at Old Navy or any other retail store. You are part of a staff that has supervisors, who have assistant managers, who have store managers, who regional managers, who have district managers, who have national managers, who has a board of directors, who has a CEO. As you go up the chain you have less colleagues and more money. Pyramid? How about law enforcement? Let's say you're a cop. You report to sergeants, who reports to a lieutenants, who reports to captains, who reports to chiefs, who reports to a commissioner. Less colleagues, more money and more safety! Keep going? Commissioners report to Mayors, who report to county executives, who report to governors, who report to the President. No matter what the working man is in a pyramid. What makes network marketing companies such as World Ventures great. You earn what YOU are worth. I have only been involved a couple months. I make way more money than a lot of people "higher up than me" that been involved way longer. Anyone can. The problem is people getting involved that ain't part of that elite group of people that determine their own worth. Most like being told they are worth 7.25/hr and can't work more than forty hours a week. That's ok, live like that. I feel like a billion bucks so I'm gonna make that happen while I travel yearlong and sleep until 3 everyday, it's four thirty now and I'm still in bed. Googling an old 50 track, I come across this and I can take a minute to respond because I don't work for ANYONE!! Go ahead go find out how many already millionaires are joining up. NBA players and rappers and whoever you look up too and want to be like. Than go to earntolive.dreamtrips.com because I know you gonna be like "damn i was getting got at this job"and stop wasting time talking shit on the internet when you can be waxing your FreeMW. And sure you will come out of pocket for the car if you want a 2013 860i with all the options included and you got no credit.

Just wait and see...The funny thing is...we've been CONDITIONED to believe that "getting paid what we're worth" isn't legitimate but to believe in "schooling, good grades, good college = good job!! How's that for the educated??!! It's unfortunate how the MASSES would graduate with huge debts only to work in a field unrelated to their degree, make way less for what they've bargained for, and then default on their students loans...= bad debt (& so another setback of securing a job)!! Opportunities wouldn't be opportunities if EVERYONE was a part! So I sincerely thank those who are amongst the 98% aka "conditioned" because we need the not so well off as a baseline for well...US!! WORLDVENTURES IS AMAZING and has changed my life to a more fulfilling one! I fired my boss and live fulltime!!

The intelligence of some of the people on this topic is questionable, at best. I'd listen to the people that have what you want, not your broke friend, and definitely not some person on the internet. That said, you're here for some info.
I don't know about all that other stuff, but what I do know is, that "You Should Be Here" sign represents freedom and peak life experiences. I have personally been a member of this club for a year. When I saw it, the guy that showed it to me had more money in the bank than I did, I also saw some pictures on Facebook of him having fun. So, I listened, skeptically. What I didn't do was go online and look for random people's advice and THANK GOD. The dude that said, "You have to recruit 6 people to get any money" is so uneducated it's not funny. That said, if I didn't sign up that night and would have read that, I wouldn't have signed up. I would have let someone I don't know dictate my future. And I definitely wouldn't have been on 4 trips with my friends and the company wouldn't be paying for my BMW payment, not to mention, I'd still be stuck where I was when I saw it. I don't make decisions for people, nor am I here to persuade anyone to do something they don't want to do. Truth is, the business side isn't for everyone, in fact, some people aren't personally developed to have success right away. But, the product stands on its' own and even if it weren't for the financial benefits of sharing it, I would. Be a member, go on a DreamTrip and then make a decision, it's cheap. Or, find someone that is a member, and make them take you on one (one guest can go for the same price as a paying member). I bet you become a member and share the program with almost everyone you come into contact with. I am a police officer of 8 years, have multiple certifications and specialized training and am on a SWAT team. I like my job, but the negativity surrounding it is insane (maybe like yours). This company brought life back into me. I would have paid THOUSANDS, wait, no it's literally priceless... to spend time with motivated positive people that care about your well-being (unlike the yahoo that is being negative) and success. I will NEVER tell anyone they CAN'T do something. I've shared this with a LOT of people and what I've found is that many VERY financially successful people do this. I have yet to find just 1 that is negative about it, even if it's not their deal and they don't sign up. I simply don't care who does and who doesn't sign up, but throwing trash and negativity out about something that has changed my life, financially (residual income) paid for BMW, but more importantly given me some experiences and a chance to spend as much time with my family as I ever wanted, is plain stupid and ignorant. That said, I don't know if it's right for you, but I know if I didn't find out for myself, I would have thought it was a scam as well. In fact, I had my doubts a month into it (and I already received a check). I was an idiot. Now, I listen to people that KNOW what they're talking about, and that alone has changed my life, even if it's not in WV. Good luck and I urge you to make an educated decision, whatever you think that is.

Well, now that the parade of WV talking points has subdued, let's acknowledge some of the claims made in previous posts:

1. Ernst & Young: The two WV founders being 2 of 38 finalists in 1 of 27 regions for ENTREPRENEURS of the year does not give credence to the COMPANY itself. It was not a "company of the year" award. Though he has not been mentioned here, I know WV shills like to pump Donald Trump as some sort of MLM-loving God, so let's take a closer look at Trump to demonstrate the point I made above. Is Donald Trump a successful entrepreneur (like the WV founders)? No doubt, nobody would argue that. However, are Donald Trump's companies successful? Answer: some. Many have gone bankrupt, while others are struggling right now. Point being, entrepreneur does not equal company. Entrepreneur of the Year, likewise, does not equal Company of the Year. Therefore, the E&Y talking point is a moot point.

2. "All Businesses are Pyramid Shaped"/Ragging on Normal Jobs in General: Fact; only 3% of WV members recoup their initial "investments." Of that 3%, the majority make an income below the poverty line. 98.5+% of Americans working normal jobs are not making incomes below the poverty line, nor are they PAYING (i.e. losing money) companies with hopes of becoming rich because of that company. So, quit ragging on companies that actually do provide people with a decent living, because WV sure as hell doesn't. Also, not one of the scenarios mentioned in the pyramid structure examples post involved a situation where the people at the bottom of the "pyramid" pay for the compensation of those above them, like what exists at WV.

3. BMWs: Members must finance the BMWs on their own, with WV contributing $600/month, provided the WV member's "team" earns the company $5,000 a month. Not a bad deal, however, if a member's "team" fails to make $5,000 for WV, then the member must make his or her own car payment. Miss making $5,000 for WV two months in a row and one is stuck financing the BMW on his or her own, as WV steps out at that point. If you can afford the payments, it's not a bad deal. With the membership turnover, staying qualified is a tall task. Young adults are prime targets for WV and most can not afford car payments for a BMW, so it's rather disingenuous to entice young adults with BMWs.

Reading these comments is like people telling me to stop paying for fitness membership! It's a scheme! You'll never be fit! You'll never lose weight! They are ripping you off! Fitness world CEO is laughing now because they make a lot of money!

At the end, this is just another business! Tell me your local restaurant, fast food, Gucci, gas station, insurance, lawyers, accountant don't make huge profit!

The biggest one is selling water!!! Last time I remember North American water is drankable from the tap and its FREE! Stop buying bottles of water then!!!

Yeah you pay money to join, in the process you will meet the most amazing people you will ever meet, and you get amazing oppertunities to travel the world. If that isn't enough you get four you pay no more and if you get 6 in the first month which isn't hard you get paid $570 which pays for your membership plus you get an extra $200. Ohh yeah and for the bmw you get 4 people and you help those 4 people get 4 people you get an additional $600 towards any silver bmw you want. So the bmw isn't free but the company will pay for the bmw for you.
