>> Hello all,

Over the past 15 years of being online and being a small business owner , i have seen all "make money at home" programs . To sum this up , all make money at home businesses fall into many catagories , some good , some bad , some are total junk , some show you a fraction of what to do and leave you to figure out the rest at your expense , or they simply "bleed you dry" and goodbye!
BUT , what i see at Maverick , and all the information i have gathered throught the years i have to say this is the most solid business model i have seen offered and he is up to date with what he does.
Myself being a business owner , what maverick teaches you is exactly what i do every day to market my business, hard to explain but i know a ligit thing when i see it.
I also know when someone has had hands on experience with a business and the changes you have to go through on a daily-yearly basis to be successful and i really see it here with their business model and how they conduct their marketing , and most importantly they show you the correct way to promote yourself if you join.
They also offer a way to join with virtually no money out of pocket and they also show you exactly where to get all the free promotion tools and supplies.
Who else does that ???
I also see a person who has put a lot of time ,money ,trial and error into something and made it really work. Really a hundred dollars for the knowledge alone is nothing compared to what i have spent on my small business , what works what doesn't ect....
If your are serious about having your own business of any type one day online or offline, what they offer is one of the best ways to educate yourself if your serious about putting in the time to just do it plus if you want to make money at it , its really up to your efforts on how much you can make. They show you how to do it , the rest is up to you really.
Also , having a normal day job and doing this in your spare time is the way to go.

| 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!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
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!!).
