1 UT, United States Review updated:

I have been reading some the complaints posted this week. It would be interesting to know from some you what the initial startup package cost was quoted to you. From what I'm reading everyone's startup or initial cost was different. For example mine was around $8, 000 and this was based according to the credit that was available in my personal bank or various credit cards. Also did they swipe the other amounts that they needed for Tax Club without you giving them the ok. I'm already gathering that you had different coaches at different times calling you about the same assignment, also seemed like they prolonged the assignments, different dropshippers calling you, and then the Team coach would deny that that dropshipper was not from their company (while that dropsshipper admitted he was), conflicting business information. Personally I was spenting more time trying to figure out how to pay the interest rates and bills of my credit cards. And would tell them yes I was spenting time taking care of business when they questioned why I had not completed their assignments. At one point in time I did their video benchmark sections several times because it would not post the saved notes I had typed in. At another time all the messages of emails relating to them were deleted from Yahoo space and I questioned them about it and the email correspondence relating to Thrive, Tax Club, Merchant, dropshipper etc. magically appeared. Isn't that freaky? Also when we had the inital discussion from this Thrive representative, Jon, I asked him how Thrive Learning Institute was rated in the Better Business Bureau. He walked me through the computer to a BBB website and told me what to type in and WOW the company looked impressive. After I asked if there had been any complaints he admitted of one that had been settled. By the way after that when I tried getting to the BBB to check again the info. about Thrive would never pop up again. I'm not a betting person, but did they use the WHAT A SUCCESS STORY YOU ARE GOING TO BE in three months and later said you were not a success story because it was taking too long to set up the business. PLEASE keep posting the complaints...if the information I just posted is similar to yours please email me at I'm going to make sure the whole world knows about this company. I am a single mother of four and I thought I would have a part time job to help pay medical and lawyer expenses on one of the kids. I NEED MY MONEY BACK. SIGNED AC
