“The word ‘organic’ is attached, in some minds, with a stigma,” said Aleks Bogdanovski, President of Creative Memories (U.S.). “Sometimes people interpret ‘organic’ to mean ‘slow growth,’ but in reality, organic growth can also occur very rapidly.”
Despite the fact that many companies in the direct sales channel will experience a period of rapid growth at one point or another during their lifetimes, a large portion of today’s most successful direct selling businesses were first launched following an organic growth model… Click here to read the full article.

Oz over at Behind MLM just did a investigative review on this company. Seems the money laundrying island of Seychelles is qucikly becoming a new haven for high-risk, red flag driven, get rich quick money schemes.
First came BidiFy, now Co2 Rewards selling Carbon Offset Credits… But the real question is… Is Co2 Rewards, really Ausante? Read what Oz has to say.
You can read the full report by clicking here. I have included on this report Oz’s conclusion. I still strongly think everyone should read the full review.
“The biggest question mark in the CO2 Rewards opportunity is in the product itself. Carbon offset units are in effect entirely voluntary payments towards offsetting an individual’s carbon footprint.
As far as reselling them goes, offering a profit-share and referral commissions poses two problems.
The first is that in order to pay out a return in the profit-share, CO2 Rewards needs to be charging more than a company that isn’t offering a profit-share.
With there being no difference between verified carbon offset units other than the price, the chance of attracting genuine retail sales seems quite difficult.
Secondly there’s the profit share. As explained above, with CO2 Rewards themselves not owning any green initiatives, they’re obviously themselves purchasing the credits from somewhere. In that case all that can really be shared then is the profit margin between the wholesale price and what they are charging members and retail customers.
Is that really going to be enough to sustain a business in the long-term?
Typically in these profit share setups a large chunk of the money handed over finds its way into profit-sharing pool. However with CO2 Rewards having to compete with other offset unit resellers, they first and foremost have to be competitive.
Otherwise they will completely fail to attract retail customers. That in itself I suppose isn’t so much a problem but it then means that 100% of the sales are by CO2 Rewards members. These units then need to be given away (for free) to customers and that itself raises more questions.
Comparatively, if I signed up as a customer with Ausante, I can purchase carbon offset units for $320 (12.5 tonnes), $960 (40 tonnes) or $2880 (150 tonnes).
Through CO2 Rewards, I can sign up as a retail customer under a member and what, get the same offset units for free?
That doesn’t add up.
If I’ve purchased units and given them away, technically then any returns on the cost price of the product should be passed onto the owner, which would be my customer.
Unless of course I’m being paid not on the product purchase, but on the actual moneypaid for the offset units.
Unfortunately when you combine the fact that CO2 Rewards offer their members the ability to acquire customers through the company itself (whether or not they charge for this service is unclear), effectively it’s entirely possible to use CO2 Rewards as an investment program.
You purchase units, give them away to customers the company supposedly provides you and then earn a return on the money you fed into the company.
With the problems of CO2 Rewards remaining competitive at a retail level if they want to run a profit-share, I imagine the investment route is how most of their members are going to participate in the opportunity.
Based in Seychelles, a country with strong corporate secrecy laws, if members stop purchasing new units and the profit share percentage dips too much, Motasem Owda has made it quite easy for him to disappear should the company collapse.
You’re probably not going to have to worry about the authorities shutting down CO2 Rewards for operating what is essentially a masked investment scheme, but with the unclear relationship between Ausante and clarification on Owda’s involvement in CO2 Rewards and any other owners, CO2 Rewards’ business profile is not exactly confidence inspiring.”
