The founders and CEO Scott Rogers expressed their excitement and support about the merger, stating “It has always been our goal to provide the best possible opportunity for the Vitel Wireless independent business owners and their families and we have realized that the Vitel executive team had taken Vitel as far as it could and in order to secure the future growth of the business owners and their families we had to make a tough decision to step back in order to let them grow.  We felt in our hearts that we were holding them back and that if we could find a stable, growing company with a great product and strong leadership, the Vitel independent business owners could have a brighter future.  It was in this search we found Shopping Sherlock and Michael Wiedder, who we feel exhibits the same heart and passion for his company and members as we do ours.”

Shopping Sherlock offers a global e-commerce shopping app and platform that allows distributors to give an unlimited number of apps away for free and earn usage income when their customers use their Sherlock app and platform.  The company states, the Shopping Sherlock app was designed to open the door to online affiliate marketing for the masses and believes they have positioned the Company in front of the biggest trends in the world.  Global e-Commerce surpassed 1 trillion dollars in 2012 and is still growing at 20% per year In addition with the growth of mobile and m-commerce as well as how people around the world are using the Internet and mobile devices, Shopping Sherlock has positioned itself to be the top Internet home-based business in the world.


When asked what made Vitel a good fit for Shopping Sherlock, CEO, Michael Wiedder, stated, “Vitel Wireless has done a great job building a Company around culture and giving their independent business owners an opportunity to offer discounted services and make residual income on the use of those services. Shopping Sherlock’s technology that automatically finds the best deals on products and services all over the world is synergistic with Vitel’s mission and culture. In addition, we have given Vitel Wireless independent business owners the opportunity to now build a worldwide business. We look forward to adding their product mix to our vendor relationships which include the largest affiliate networks in North America, Asia and soon to be Europe, as well as one of the largest daily deal aggregators in the world, including Daily Deals from the top Company’s around the world. When you add the recent launch of our mobile app, that offers daily deals and coupons that are geo-location based and allows our affiliates to make money as people save money, we believe we have the foundation to become a billion dollar Company.  We look forward to working with the leaders and business owners from Vitel to help us achieve our collective goals.”

Breaking MLM News: Travis & Summer Flaherty Resign From BodHD And Notify Legacy Nation After Merger to bHip Global


From “It Works” merging with Vitamark, to the merger between BodHB and bHip Global we are seeing some small to mid-size network marketing companies forging strategic partnerships to provide a stronger combined foundation for their network marketing field force. But…

In the case of the Flaherty’s Travis & Summer, they did not feel the merger was the direction they wanted to go. Now this is not the first time, this has happened to Travis and Summer, so this time they were not as surprised as years past, but at the same time it does take the wind out of you!

Travis Flaherty is known as an expert strategist in the area of helping MLM start-up companies build their brand by attracting and growing a solid team.

A few years ago, he followed the move of other great network marketing leaders like Garrett McGrath, Orrin Woodword, Eric Woree and Tom Chenault in creating there own team brands and he formed Team Legacy.

I know Travis & Summer both believe in helping people create freedom in their lives, and wherever they go, this mission will still be their main focus.

And FREEDOM is something their whole family enjoys!

Here is his words on why after Ray Grimm and Terry LaCore announced the merger of their two companies Travis and Summer Flaherty decided it was time to resign and look for a new home.

I personally wish both companies the best in this new combined merger, but all founders and CEOs should remember to consult and explain why they are changing the direction of their respective companies before just doing it.

It is not that founders do not have the right to do as they see fit. But, when field leaders are not consulted, then the new combined company could very well lose their best assets overnight!

I also wish the best for Travis and Summer in searching for a new home, and find it a privilege to be a part of that process as the journalist who will break the story.

Travis & Summer’s Open Letter To The Legacy Nation!


Legacy Nation;

I can truly say over the past 18 months the ‘high definition’ relationships Summer and I have established with each of you have made a tremendous impact on our hearts. A quote that comes to mind is; “Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.” ~Uknown

As many of you know, over the past month Bodhd has announced a new direction with a company acquisition to Bhip Global. And while this opportunity presents an exciting opportunity for some, we are confident this merger is not the ‘right direction’ for Summer and I. We have come to the crystal clear realization – what we fell in love with 18 months ago, with Bodhd, is no longer present today.

Regretfully, I submit to you that Monday, August 27, 2012 will be my last day as the top field leader for Bodhd. Moving forward I will no longer be providing consulting services to Bodhd and or Bhip.

I want to assure you that I have no intentions to persuade people that Bhip is the ‘wrong choice’. It’s simply not the right choice for Summer and I. We also want to be respectful to everyone in this group and give you ‘the choice’ to delete yourself BEFORE we announce our new direction for Legacy. (We will be making this announcement on Friday, August 31st within this group.) For those of you who will be continuing on with this merger we wish you vast amounts of happiness and success, and hope we will stay in contact and remain friends.

We pray that in some small way we’ve had as much of an impact on your lives as you have made on ours! We will remain forever grateful for the opportunity we had to work with you and will never forget our brief moment living in ‘high definition’. Thank you for the wonderful memories.

In the spirit of success,

Travis & Summer Flaherty[/quote]
