Why Are Critics Down On Longaberger Baskets? – The company has struggled since the death in 1999 of founder Dave Longaberger. A combination of bad economic times and changing tastes in home decor sent sales from a peak of $1 billion in 2000 to about $100 million last year. In the most-recent episode, executives at parent company CVSL announced last week that Longaberger will close its retail stores in outlet malls and return to selling products solely through its direct sales force. That announcement followed the shocking departure from the Newark basket-maker of Tami Longaberger, who resigned as CEO of the company her father founded, marking an end to the family’s leadership of the firm.
For months, rumors have been building that Jeunesse Global had more money on the streets for developing their North & South America business than any other MLM company today. They were looking to attract top level network marketing team builders, and with the filing of Matt Nestler’s current lawsuit (read here), it seems the rumors may have merit.
What we do know through reading the case filed by MLM Attorney Kevin Thompson of Thompson Burton, is that Matt Nestler is alleging that he has evidence of over 100 of the same private Business Development Deals, that he and Jeunesse had entered into.
Nestler through the lawsuit is also alleging Kevin Giguere, a well known MLM Pro may have committed fraud against Nestler as well as Jenuesse.
Kevin Giguere, who launched network marketing sales organizations over the years with YTB (Your Travel Business), Numis Network, Evolv, Seacret, and now Juenesse is no stranger to network marketing. Although in at least one Jeunesse marketing piece, they would make you think he just jumped from the grocery business to Juenesse.
Cassidy Dooly and Imy Metcalfe have come together to raise funds for the victims of the Albertville Alabama tornado. Through Operation Guardian Angels, the fund raising arm of The Gulf Coast Disaster Relief Team, the girls have already raised $250.00. Their goal is to provide $1,000.00 in relief funds to the families in Albertville next week.
Albertville, Alabama was hit by an EF3 tornado on April 24 around 10:00 pm. As of Sunday night, April 25, thirty-three people had been injured. The tornado damaged many houses and left many families without a home. The storm wiped out power, leaving many neighborhoods in darkness and law enforcement without communications. That made it more difficult for officials to assess damage overnight. It left two-thirds of Albertville without power! Many schools are closed because of damage and will remain closed until they find a safe place for the kids to go.
We are asking for donations for Albertville to help with hospital bills, to help rebuild houses, to provide food and clothes for people at the shelter, and to help with other things that will be needed! Thank you so much!
