  • NY Post Article Highlights Absurdity Of Herbalife Situation: It's Time For Government To Act [View article]
    Matt, you say Ackman called 911 two years ago. I think by now it should be obvious the call was filed in the "Frivolous Calls" folder and sits in a box in the basement.

  • Do Herbalife Distributors Primarily Recruit? Let's Ask Susan Peterson [View article]
    Matt, "Interesting" how you conveniently "left out" the reason why Susan Peterson was pictured with Bush. Spin Spin Spin, wow!!

    Susan Peterson, #1 Herbalife Distributor
    Awarded "Business Woman of the Year"
    by President George W. Bush
    March, 2005

    All I can say is ....... JUST LOOK at how GREAT Susan looks!!!!!
    JUST LOOK!!! ... She looks BEAUTIFUL ... and HEALTHY!!!!!
    That's the good nutrition! It's served my family well for the past
    20+ yrs too!! Looking at lots and lots of long term products
    users of Herbalife..... Aging AWESOMELY!!!!

    I've gotta Thank You for that video link, it's one I have not seen...
    and I'll be using it in my business to show people the big picture.
    Many will not put in the WORK that Susan did & still does.....
    but that's the beauty of our country and this business...
    the freedom to do what YOU want to do. I spoke with a girl today,
    who became a member JUST to use the program and get a discount
    on the products. She hadn't even spoken to anyone, no one put the
    "big push" on her ... or pressured her... she just happened to see
    some friends who looked GREAT after having success with Herbalife..
    so she went searching by herself and "found" a website & just signed
    herself up.

    Others see the OPPORTUNITY in the RISK.

    You're free to see the risk Matt...
    I and millions of others saw and see the opportunity!
    Incredible Products, Company, People, & Opportunity
    that CAN and IS changing people's lives for the better! :-)

  • Carl Icahn Will Sell Out Of Herbalife [View article]
    QTR says: "I think it's an extremely realistic possibility he sells out soon, and I'm not just saying that because I'm short. In this article, I want to point out some common sense reasons that I think the obvious choice for Carl is get out of his Herbalife long position."

    Well, I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinion. My opinion? ... I think Mr. Ichan may stay for a very very long time. You can't put a price on making a difference in someone's life. Making a positive impact in the world, and by taking a large position in Herbalife, Carl has done just that. I'm sure that Carl Ichan knows the negative picture of Herbalife being painted by Ackman and all the shorts is a FALSE picture. I appreciate the fact that Carl Ichan & other knowledgeable people took the time to get to know the real Herbalife.

    As for "predictions" of which Ackman is so "sure of his". I predict there will be many "snide remarks" about my comments made here.

    I remain steadfastly LONG on HLF.

  • Herbalife: The Eve Of Destruction [View article]
    Rogier wrote: "it was only an opportunity for the first guys in, and by the time you hear of it, you ARE the opportunity -- for them, to fleece you."

    So how do you explain Rogier, all the people who joined the company within the last 10 years who have reached GET, MILL, PRES Team and beyond? Some reaching 15K, 20K, 30K, & one that I know of hitting 50K Royalties a month in less than 10 yrs. They started 25+ yrs after Herbalife opened it's doors in 1980. It's real, the customers are real, the opportunity is real. These incomes might not be typical, but they sure do show the possibility!

    Because Parthtd, we have seen & experienced the product results first hand, the business successes first hand, the lives changed and improved first hand. We know the integrity of the company and the dedicated people steering the ship. Granted... the internet lead generating systems were not the most respected marketing method... I'd say 99.9% of us in the field disliked the systems as much as the shorts here do, and glad to see them go. And as much as it seems like that's the main way of how people built their businesses... it wasn't. I wish the shorts knew more than the picture Ackman painted for them. I've "lived" the Herbalife"stle" for 25+ yrs and it is nothing like how Ackman portrays it.

  • Something's Rotten In The State Of Missouri - Is Mr. Stiritz On The Wrong Side Of The Trade? [View article]
    You ask a lot of "why's" Matt. The answer is right there in your own article, you just don't "get it".

    "we believe that none have effectively coupled the product, personal coaching and the product access provided by our daily consumption business methods such as nutrition clubs, weight loss challenges or fit camps."

    And a new "technique" is taking hold that..... well.... I'll let the numbers speak for themselves in the future. Exciting times ahead for those of us in the field working.

    "they've resorted to posting hypothetical headlines as true fact, no matter how far removed they are from reality." ... oh I totally AGREE!! Shorts talk about a "Confidence Game" ... with all these articles... & these sensationalized headlines... just WHO is running a confidence game!! Great post Davey!

  • Dear Pamela Jones Harbour: Why Don't Canadians Drink Formula 1? [View article]
    Kay Herbert: -----Matt,
    Great article - probably your best to date. I see no Herbalife long here being able to explain your Canadian customer mystery.

    I find it mysterious (and comical) how so many shorts time and time again say "your best (article) to date". It amazes me the amount of time spent on writing and writing and writing and writing these articles. I think everyone knows that the shorts are "short". Wondering "what" they get from the constant repeating and repeating and twisting and turning and spinning and spinning. I guess the SA pay must be "good". Or is there another motive? I think ego and recognition plays a part. As for this letter, basically no substance. A lot of fluff, opinion, jabbing etc. I have to admit, the shorts are expert at making many waste a lot of time though, maybe that's their ultimate goal. Ok, my 5 minute SA time allotment is done.

  • An Open Letter To Mr. Bill Stiritz On Herbalife [View article]
    Arrogant letter. "If" Mr. Stiritz reads it, what a good laugh he will have. And you know the old saying "laughter is the best medicine".

    Icahn1: "But these anti MLM zealots have exhibited the same cult like behavior they get mad at HLF for exhibiting"

  • Dear John Hempton: It's Not A Weight Loss Cult, It's A Confidence Game [View article]
    I owned a business before Herbalife, so all a matter of opinion. My opinion, extremely inexpensive to start & low risk.
