I have been with SMC for nearly 9 years. I have never had a problem with them this whole time. I think that it takes a person with 120% dedication to their goals, and it takes time, money, ENERGY and most of all PATIENCE to run and start a good ONLINE business. Online businesses are the hardest thing to start, but if you have patience and the skills you need then it will work, but it takes EFFORT on your part. When I started SMC I just got married and wanted to work at something I thought I could do to earn our family extra money. So, My husband agreed to have me call. I ordered the best membership and paid $550.00 for approx. 25 products of all kinds, (all very nice) Videos of how to start and be successful if I did it step by step the way they told me too, they sent me my first 25 big catalogs, and a lot of the small ones, order forms and order charts, they set me up with EVERYTHING i needed to start MY business. And, I did it. I ordered products I knew that people I knew would love and I sold them all out of my mini van to different neighborhoods. I did that for the first year! And was doing just fine and gained allot of my clients that I have today from doing that.
No, I don't sell to walmart or have a website up with them yet..but I do plan on purchasing the website soon. I trust in SMC and believe that its NOT their faults if someone don't succeed! Its our faults for not doing EVERYTHING we can to make our sales better! That includes going to School and learning about business if that what it takes. ITS UP TO THE PERSON STARTING THE BUSINESS~ My membership is great, the only thing is when I got cancer and wasn't running my business for a 2 years, my membership number wouldn't work in the computer anymore, So I called and they said that I just needed to pay the membership fee of 45.95 and get put right back on. So, I did. I never had a problem NOT ONCE with my credit cards.
Some people just don't have what it takes, and feel the need to blame the company for their lack of hard work in making it a go! GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR ENDEAVORS.
