Part of managing a large network of bloggers over at Triberr is keeping out the multi-level marketers.
We keep a list of “questionable” money making schemes, and one of the most popular right now is the Empower Network.
Like any get rich quick scheme, they sell a dream of easy wealth and prosperity. Truth be told, 99% of members make less than $200 a month. At least that’s what is self reported by the Empower Network disclaimer page: https://www.empowernetwork.com/income.php?myinfo&all=1.
Start from the bottom…
91% make less than $36 a year.
96% make less than $600 a year.
97% make less than $1,428 a year.
99% make less than $3,528 a year, which is $294 a month, which after taxes is slightly less than $200 a month. And let’s not forget that you need to actually spend money on products and training just to be in on this scheme.
Maybe you’re special
Now maybe you’re one of the elite, fraction of the top 1% that makes $28,632 a year. Big deal, that’s not a livable income in most parts of the country. And yes, there are always the founders, and their inner circle that started the pyramid, pulling in big profits at the expense of the 99% that buy into the dream of easy wealth. If you’re reading this post, you’re not one of them, so don’t worry.
I have nothing against Empower Network or it’s members. I love entrepreneurs, and wish the folks over at EN the best. However, I also know that 99.99% of it’s participants will be hurt and disappointed when they spend their money on a dream that will never come true. I don’t wish this on anyone, so we’ll do our best to keep EN users off Triberr, and I hope this post provides clarity for anyone thinking about joining their network.
