Do Not Trust SFI Marketing Group Program

by : Javier A Garcia

Don't get me wrong when I say: Do not trust Strong Future International or SFI Marketing Group (a.k.a Six Figure Income). I have my reasons. But you do not need to agree or disagree with my statement, because what I say it is 100% true fact.

Let me explain what happened;

1) My relationship with SFI Marketing Group
It began almost 5 years ago, hopeful to building a self-sustainable and profitable home based business, on January 24 of 2003. Six months later I saw my first commission check of $16.50. A little more than a year later, in February of 2004, I was still earning a monthly commission check of around $15.00.

2) Due to a more diligent marketing effort
after March of 2004 my SFI commission check was gradually increasing up to the point when on July of that year I got a $203.29 payment; effectively covering my IAHBE membership ($29.95) and check ($1.00) fees, so the actual earning was $234.24.

3) Between 2005 to Early 2007
During 2005, 2006 and two months into 2007, , my payments increased a bit further up to a point where I was earning around $300 in commissions. Before that time I was achieved a Team Leader status with more than two thousands referral members on my downline.

4) On January of 2007, things change
SFI owner Mr. Gery Carson unilaterally decided to change the compensation plan of the company. That's when the trouble began.

  • From February and March of 2007
    My commission payment amount drop to around $25, which is not enough to even cover the IAHBE membership fee. So on March of 2007, I decided to cancel my SFI account and forget about the whole SFI MLM scheme.
  • Before the new compensation plan became effective, I consistently kept my Team Leader status and was generating an average of 4 new affiliates daily until the day I canceled my account. No to mention that I used to follow up every referral that signed up below me after they achieve Executive Affiliate status and beyond.

5) They still keep promising
residual or passive income:'income that keeps coming in month after month, year after year, from work you do just once. It's like a royalty; you write a book or record a song and get paid forever on it.'

6) My home based business dream felt like a sand castle being hit by a wave on the beach.
After 5 years doing business with SFI, after generating thousands of affiliates, earning almost three hundred each month in commissions; all of the sudden my earning was reduced to a level that was not enough to even pay for the membership fees. All because of a change in the compensation plan. It is like starting all over again.

This change affected many other SFI membersHealth Fitness Articles, not just me. Even many others admit that were touched by this arbitrary plan change. My question (which you don't have to answer) is: Where is the 'residual income' promise?
