Hooray for Phil Hadfield! I have been waiting for someone else to address the slanted journalism being fabricated by Grace Leong, likely being molded by the hands of Neways themselves. My brother happens to be on the team of attorneys who worked countless hours to represent SISEL and was overjoyed with the Judge's ruling! It was truly a major victory for SISEL in a David verses Goliath setting, with Neways bringing in a huge team of attorneys from San Francisco AND hiring a large firm from here in Utah. Neways was asking that all SISEL distributors be blocked from recruiting distributors from Neways and that 6 big SISEL distributors in Japan be prevented from recruiting indefinitely. The ruling clearly stated that SISEL distributors can freely recruit distributors from any company, including Neways. In terms of the "Big 6" distibutors, 3 were completed dropped and allowed to recruit immediately, 1 was prohibited from recruiting Neways distributors for approximately 2 weeks and the other 2 were enjoined until May (about 3 months each).
Imagine my surprise to read Grace Leong's article in the Provo Herald entitled Headline "Neways Wins Lawuit"! In your most recent article, you again say exactly what Chris Crump wants you to say. The injunctions put on Neways by the government aren't really that big of deal. It doesn't take much smart math to figure out that 3 months of injunctions for 500,000 distributors is much more catastrophic to Neways than Judge Jenkin's decision is for SISEL.
Additionally, my husband just happened to be in Japan when the story about Neways broke. On the national news, it repeatedly ran as the #2 story in the country at least 3 times the first night and again the next day. Having a son who attended College in Tokyo, my family has many friends in Japan who are in the MLM industry, working for several different companies. The general consensus conveyed to my husband by these friends is that this action by the Japanese Government is a "momentum killer" and may be the end of Neways in Japan, which is 85% of their business.
To add to the catastrophe for Neways, is that the National Convention in Japan is to take place at the Tokyo Dome in April and the contract for this venue may be terminated because they have a track record and the legal right to prohibit any "black listed" company from renting. Even if the event does take place, it seems hard to imagine an enthusiastic atmosphere in the midst of this government sanction. Far worse for Chris Crump and associates is that Neways is going to be going public in the very near future and their value has just hit the basement and will continue to fall because of the very "unfair and illegal practices" that CEO Eric Larsen has repeatedly claimed his company will not condone. I call this whole situation Karma and see it as Neways getting what it deserves!
Shame on the Provo Herald and Grace Leong for misrepresenting what is truly happening.

Isn't it sad that Grace Leong can say the wrong information and post it in the Herald and people believe it without looking at both sides, Yes Golden Gate owners of Neways will take the company public to try and recoup their money and then who knows from there where us employees will be, they have already sold off the building, it looks to me like they will get their money and run, I'm worried about my job!

It's very sad that people are so envious of the great company Tom Mower built from nothing and worked many many hours a day, to acomplish this, many people have said they have seen him working well into the night and many times going to work at 4am doing extensive research of creating safe products, we might want to remember he is the first one to point out the danger of toxic ingredients in the personal care products we were all using, many people scoffed at him for ponting this out only to find later that he was right and now many companies are trying to imitate him.

I used to use the neways products, until I tried the Sisel product and found them to be superior, Mr. Mower is not going to create a me too product, with the very latest research and technology he has way superior products than he created 22 years ago,the guy truly is a genius!!

At some point I know WorldVentures will be going to India. You may want to start looking into it before it does and be in front of the wave when it comes. Are you on facebook?
