Four Point Moms

Posted by Molly on Tuesday, July 17, 2007

I got pretty excited when I saw this opportunity from Four Point Moms:

Gain Financial Peace of Mind. Gain More Time with Your Family. FourPointMoms –Your Work at Home

Team Will Help You Achieve Your Goals. Click Here!

I like that they take a realistic view of earning a livable wage at home and that they’re not trying to cash in on the “Get Rich Quick” mentality. They seem to get that people who want to work from home also want an ethical way of making a living and aren’t looking to rip people off. Of course, given my focus it’s a definite plus that the Internet is integral to their business.

A few of the benefits that they state include:

  • No large investment, no selling, no inventory, no telemarketing.
  • This is a home internet business NOT a job offer. Work on your computer.
  • Enjoy a meaningful, ethical career protecting children, families, the environment.
  • Free details, credentials, orientation of your daily work activities with us in an informative telephone business summary.
  • You can start earning today!

That all sounds good, but nowhere does it say what the business is so I did some more research on it. Basically you’ll be promoting Four Point Moms which sells non-toxic household cleaning products. Frankly, I do think that all moms should be passionate about the health of their children and minimizing the use of toxins and in some ways that could make this an easy pitch. I have also learned that you have 120 days to try this business out, but if it isn’t working for you towards the end of that period you need to get out. Also, there are costs involved as you have to purchase a business kit. What I am saying is, if you sign up to get information about how this deal works, read the fine print before signing on.

Here is something you must know though, since first learning about this opportunity I have found one published account by a person who has taken on this opportunity, she believes that the non-toxic cleaning products offered by the company are great and she uses them, but she is very unhappy with the lack of support and training that was promised., “The free training they promised is a joke. Most of them are just ‘motivational’ calls and you hear the same thing again and again but nothing that will help you build a downline.” What I gather from this is that if you already know how to market online and off this could be a good opportunity for you, but read the fine print and evaluate it carefully. Of course it costs you nothing to look at their offer so if your interested I’ve posted it, as they state it, below.

    I have had a couple of calls from this company. Both times I was addressed by my first name, however the person calling introduced themselves as Mrs. So&So. I find this condescending. If I am dealing with someone I expect to be on the same level.

    Now that I know more about the company & what they “sell” I am actually glad that I hung up tonight without talking to Mrs. So&So.

    I see scam all over here!!! Have read many sad stories from women who have not been happy at all with this business.

    Hello! I just wanted to drop a friendly note. I’m one of the owners of the FourPointMoms Internet community. My name is Krissy Dyes.

    I wanted to say a special hello to Molly and thank you for mentioning us on your blog. Love it!

    I wanted to clarify just a few quick points on your very thorough post above. FourPointMoms does not actually sell the earth friendly products. We represent a nearly billion dollar debt free corporation that has been manufacturing earth friendly products for nearly a quarter century. Their name is Melaleuca. They sell the products – not FourPointMoms. You can learn more about them at http://www.melaleuca.com/introduction.

    FourPointMoms is a giant volunteer support organization. We help people (mostly women but our male membership is increasing) take the steps needed to work for themselves and work from home. We do this by teaching them how to setup customer accounts for Melaleuca using the Internet. It works great – I’ve been “trying it out” for almost 8 years now without having to sell any physical items. Anyhoo- Melaleuca is actually the one that writes our paychecks and I’m happy to say I’ve gotten one every month for nearly 8 years now so I know, personally, they are very legitimate.

    FourPointMoms is more like a group of volunteer coaches. All members try to help other members to the best of their ability. Unfortunately – there are members who who have “life” get in the way and they may not reach out to the folks they’ve helped join us. When that happens – every single member has access to a support team of over 50 people. All they have to do is pick up the phone and give us a buzz. Help, support, and training is just a phone call away. Training is also through recorded “how to” type calls and live with our trainers a few times a week.

    Some of our topics include basics like office setup, home business tax breaks, reading your business report, and lately we even train on how to setup a blog, use Facebook to work online and even Twitter.

    I was sorry to hear of the lady’s experience above – but wonder why she never called her support team or got in touch with an owner? We are accessible and I would have been happy to personally guide her in her training.

    I did notice that the link to the published account of the woman’s experience went to a website called the Ripoff report. While I would definitely take a personal complaint very seriously from our members, I hesitate to give credence to anything on that particular website. You can also see more about that source at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ripoff_Report (be very cautious with using this site)

    and more about the Rip-Off Report’s Owner and Alleged Extortionist Ed Magedson at http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/2007-02-01/news/the-real-rip-off-report/

    Thank you so much, Molly, for trying to link back to us above. Unfortunately, that link goes to a site I do not recognize as representing us. I am open to direct conversation from anyone who would like to ask me to clarify anything.

    All the best to you and your readers!

Oh well! Maybe she will remember me and call again. Thanks. I am someone willing to take a look at this offer from: Philadelphia, Pa
