You cant make money just by bringing people in. If you dont help your team produce, you wont produce. Also, you can work this business by yourself as a traditional realtor/loan officer if you wish. In traditional agencies, its a dog eat dog world--each to its own. Why would anyone be willing to help you if they arent benefitting from it? Also, you have to spend tons of money on seminars and trainings and so forth. Joining the MILI Group is a $100 investment. If anyone is so tight for a measly $100 I would suggest getting a new job. Also, about new members only making pocket change in comparison to people who have been in the business from the get-go is totally false. That is because there is a clear-cut system on how to promote, and you can actually promote over the person who introduced you to the business, the person above that person, and so forth. There are no limits as to how fast or how much money one can make. Let me tell you about my good friend who introduced me into the business. Just last year, he was a broke college student, he lived at home with his parents, and he drove an old camaro. Currently, he owns 9 homes, he is moving into his 1 million dollar estate house later this month, and he drives a bmw750li. He has also moved his parents into an estate home in the same development that is 1.2 M. He is 24 years old. I can go on and on about the benefits of MILI and how it has helped tons of people on my team as well as myself. We dont beg anyone to join us, and the beauty of the business is we get to choose who we work with. Hey, its for anyone, but not for everyone!

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"

And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
