Empower Network Bankruptcy

Recommended Posts

Bankruptcy?  I'm not surprised.  It was one of the worst programs I have ever joined.  It seemed like forever, but at least I got my money back. That was back in August 2016.

There are two ways to face the future. One way is
with apprehension; the other is with anticipation  .

Basically there are two reasons that resulted in this:


1. Accounting error where they were actually paying more than 100% commissions, I don't think he mentioned where this error was specifically, but if you're

paying out 1% over what is coming in over a long time you're losing a lot of money slowly.


2. Someone stole a lot of money, I guess they didn't get it back?


I never joined it, I always thought it was really overpriced for what they offered, but a lot of people were successful with it and if it weren't for these financial issues they would probably still be around.

I did the math on some of their promises and saw a dangerous situation where cost could very well overtake profits, they were not leaving room for the business expenses, the lavish awards banquets, the bank fees, the company end marketing, etc.. to scale up at the level they were scaling it up. I think that happened more than supposedly paying more than 100% in commissions. The  money stolen or not was not projected right and I hate seeing so many others talking about how they can pay infinity commission etc.. when the money in is a finite amount. The big thing is there was nothing really sustainable about Empower. You were paying too much for a blog and an affiliate program after you purchased and read the info products and the saturated market was bound to cause attrition eventually. They borrowed from Peter to pay Paul because EN was growing too fast and got deeper in debt trying to shore up a sinking ship that was money-less back in 2014.


Why he took 3 years to tell the truth is almost criminal, it's definitely negligent, and probably fraudulent as the last 3 years he knew the longevity of the company was not close to the promises it was making. Following into a new plan is probably not a smart choice given the reputation damage and the proven bad choices. If I were him I would tag on to another company and settle to build a personal income off the knowledge without the risk of trying to build a program to end all programs.


He's in debt, focus on earning money to get out of it not trying to prove you weren't the bad guy because David Woods was the bad guy even if he didn't plan any of this. It's time to heal, to negotiate restitution's, and get your ash out of the limelight.

I got sucked into this one back in 2011. Stopped promoting it when they went nuts with their VIP upgrades. Just wasn't worth their inflated price tags which is the major problem with most "business opportunities."


David Wood... what a trainwreck!

I never joined them, but kept seeing their ads. Their prices seemed to be too high. I always thought there was something wrong with their business model, but didn't really do too much due diligence on it. Isn't this the same company that used people's contact list to build their list of leads?

A lot of people dont see the value of the product more than they hope to see the return on that same value. I agree the products were overpriced and you could access them anywhere for much cheaper or even free. Im not surprised they went bankrupt. Bad management and greed might have something to do with it too.
