This post was updated on January 16th, 2010 after Mr. Kelly Williams contacted me with the following request…
After repeated promises from support staff that a decision maker would get back with me and even several calls setup by a founding distributor in India that ended up with no one even on the call, it was apparent my determination to help is simply landing on deaf ears. This left me with very unsettled feelings to their legitimacy and commitment to those in the trenches building their company.
Further research and investigating on various regulatory agencies sites added to my uneasy feelings and I increased my efforts to get their attention, to no avail, leaving me then with the following personal opinion.
Take it for what it is worth…
What appeared from the surface when I first researched TVI and then read your review, was an “outsider” looking in and taking shots at what appeared to me to be a great program, has now come full circle. Perhaps I and others should have been less critical of your stance and more diligent in our research and demanding of TVI.
I have since come to experience something so different from the inside. What appears, by the eye catching website and sensitive tag line, “Touching Lives Globally” is simply a mirror with deceit behind it’s reflective coating. With founders and decision makers nowhere to be found and office locations with no TVI representatives there, coupled with a promoted product that very few have
actually used, the reality behind their existence screams quite loudly to me.
They were created for one reason only and it is highly unlikely they will come out and tell us what that reason really is, but we all know.
The sad tale behind it all is the fact they did it all in the name of goodwill. I believe TVI has put so many wonderful
people simply trying to survive and help their families in today’s tight and turbulent economy and help others along the way
in jeopardy of damaging or even destroying their hard earned credibility.
It is simply an evil thing they have done!
Many are calling what I have chosen to do by sharing my experiences and opinion, evil.
I guess we are all entitled to our opinions but I feel when I see a train wreck, it is my responsibility to warn the passengers.
So I ask you to please remove the videos from your site so that I might put this ugly chapter behind me. I appreciate your cooperation on this matter.
If you would like to discuss this with me further over the phone, I would be happy to do so.
To Your Success,
“Make It A Pajama Commute”
I have always felt Kelly was a man of integrity, and although we disagreed with TVi, he did an excellent job of explaining the compensation plan at the time.
This public announcement is also the sign of a true Servant Leader. One who is willing to put his team first above all else.
