Disrupt Worldwide Really Poised To Change Network Marketing Or Just a 2.0 Remake?

Over the last few months I’ve watched and listened to all the rhetoric and hype surrounding the closure of Wake Up Now aka #WUNLife and how other companies like Wealth Generators and Pro Traffic Plus were the new “Wake Up Now scams” because former top leaders had taken their teams there.

Then word leaked out that Kirby Cochran, former shareholder and CEO of Wake Up Now had launched a new international company with his brother Gary Cochran, and people started calling it #WUNLife 2.0.

But it wasn’t until I received a call from Jason Elrod, the former president of Wake Up Now, telling me he, had moved his family back home, and was staying in the direct selling industry, launching his own company with a partner, that I really started to read the pro and con buzz about 2.0. I was particularly interested in what the critics had to say when they started propagating that Disrupt Worldwide is another scam, like Wake Up Now.

Author’s Note: Wake Up Now was never found to be a scam, nor was it’s founders, shareholders or officers ever investigated or charged with any crimes. One of the former major shareholders Kirby Cochran was sued by the Board Of Wake Up Now after he was terminated for $70 million dollars based on a lack of fiduciary controls.

In February of 2015, Wake Up Now did announce the closure of their network marketing channel in the USA, and it’s my understanding the company is now liquidating all assets to payoff short term creditors which include former distributors which  may be owed past commissions. 

So are the critics and proponents right – is Disrupt Worldwide and other companies just WUN 2.0, or at least in the case of #LifeDisrupted is this a brand new network marketing culture working to use a Blue Ocean strategy to create something completely new?

What Is The Lyoness SME Program And How Does It Work?

There is much that can be found online about the Lyconet shopping community. But I have found very little about the Lyoness SME community and I want to focus on this element of the Lyoness International business model.

A month or so ago I was able to sit down with Craig Shapiro and John Constino who work hand in hand with Lyoness Americas new CEO Iain Bratt, building and developing the Lyconet Shopping Network and Lyoness SME communities. These two give an in-depth look at how the two communities work in tandem together to create a solid business model.

Now hearing only from the leadership in a company, isn’t very fair, so I went looking for some testimonials from actual SMEs in America to see what their thoughts are. Please understand I found these on a Lyoness YouTube channel.

As we all know there may also be stories of merchants who do not feel the SME program worked well for them. I believe as with everything, there are pros and cons and individuals should dig deep to see if a program will work for them.

Here is one community where a variety of merchants, restaurants, construction, gas stations, tire companies and herb shoppe are SMEs in the Lyoness Shopping Community. What caught my attention is ALL of these testimonials are by the real people, not paid actors.

Want To Learn How To Earn $3700 a Month In Network Marketing?

Did the $3700 monthly catch your attention? I am so six and tired of the hype and gimmicks when it comes to what it takes to make money in network marketing, that when I was contacted by Kelly Bangert and Mitch Huhem about their new in-home personal coaching system, that I asked them to send it to me so I could review it personally.

Both Huhem and Bangert are facilitated the growth of companies and more importantly independent sales and marketing organizations which generated seven figures in monthly sales for the companies they represent. But what I found most intriguing by the stories was not how much they had made, but the fact they were able to coach and train their teams to earn really good income working part-time around traditional 9 to 5 careers.
