So you want to know in this Prosperity of Life Review if its legit? And if it can help you achieve the financial and time freedom they promise?
From my 7 years experience with the company, yes it can.
But…there’s a lot they don’t tell you about. And it’s not as easy as they make it seem.
In this review, I'm going to be brutally honest and breakdown Prosperity Of Life…
I'll reveal what I discovered during my 7 years as a distributor and customer – including the good, the bad, and…yes…the ugly.
This entire review is a must read before you make any decision to join.
I’m Not With Prosperity Of Life Anymore…
After 7 years in the company, and experiencing some stress and anxiety because of it, I left Prosperity of Life in 2018 and moved to a new company.
I’ll share that story by the end of this review so you know what pitfalls to avoid.
For now, know that Prosperity of Life has not paid me to write this. So I’ll be trying to maintain a balanced and unbiased perspective.
I'll also share some ex-member testimonials throughout so you can know both sides of the story.
Who Am I (Alex Ford)?
You might be wondering who I am and why you should listen to me…
I was a Prosperity of Life distributor from 2011 to 2018, an M8 Director, and a Rising Star Award winner. I've attended many of the events, spoken on stage, hosted training calls, and made some incredible 5-figure months, and even days.
I also went on cruise ships (pre-COVID times) and traveled the world with the owners, Shane & Rachel Krider and Greg Strom, and many members in the community.
But leading up to Prosperity of Life, I was in the same boat you’re probably on right now…
It was 2011, and I was a frustrated and underpaid office worker, drowning in $50,000 debt. I was working a dead-end job, and I felt like I was working only to pay off an ever-expanding amount of debt.
When I'd have enough of living the same routine week in and week out, Prosperity of Life kinda just fell into my laps.
I wasn’t specifically looking for an online business. In fact, I didn’t even know you could make money online, let alone know what network marketing is.
But after watching their presentation, I loved the idea of being able to work from home, and hopefully make $20,000 per month within a couple of months.
So without doing any research (though I should have), I joined and bought in.
The $20K in a month didn’t happen in the first couple of months, like the presentation made me think it would. It didn’t happen until much later.
Though, as a result of this company and the industry, I quit my last ever job within 2 years. I also found the woman of my dreams, we had two beautiful children, and we both became stay-at-home parents.
The greatest gift being that we’ve never missed a single beat of our kids growing up. And they’ve never known mummy or daddy to work away from home.
But my experience with Prosperity of Life was not all sunshine and rainbows…
When you’re in something long enough, you start seeing the truth behind the truth.
But before we get into that, let’s dive into some facts…
What Is Prosperity Of Life?
Prosperity of Life (POL), formerly Liberty League International, is a network marketing company based out of the U.S.A. & UAE. The company offers a business opportunity and personal development/wealth creation products as online courses and live events.
Personal development covers activities that improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and facilitate employability, enhance quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations.– Wikipedia
The opportunity is marketed as a “business in a box”. They provide the products, tools, and training to make money online and “get rich.”
On their marketing materials, you’ll hear of distributors making $10K, $20K, $50K, and even $100K+ months, working from home in only 2-3 hours per day.
Sounds intriguing, right?
Unfortunately, the truth is more brutal than that, which we'll get to soon.
How is Prosperity of Life based in the USA and UAE?
Prosperity of Life trades for the corporate entity Polaris Global Marketing LLC in the USA. Xpansion Event Management Services sells and manages the products and events in the UAE.
Who Are The Founders?
Prosperity of Life is co-owned by Shane & Rachel Krider, and Gregory Strom.
Shane & Rachel Krider typically operate the company from multiple countries, previously residing in Chile, Italy, Thailand, and currently Portugal.
Shane Krider got his start in network marketing in 1998 with a company similarly structured to Prosperity of Life, except selling travel tickets and events.
Rachel Krider, wife of Shane Krider, got her start in MLM with the health company Herbalife and became a top distributor and trainer there.
After 5 years, she made the switch to Liberty League International. 7 months into LLI, she generated a $100,000 per month income.
When Shane Krider bought out Brent Payne for Liberty League International, Rachel became a co-owner and the head of marketing for the new company Polaris Global, which later rebranded as Prosperity of Life.
Greg Strom is co-creator of the Beyond Freedom Evolution program with Shane Krider, and is lead media and content producer of all Prosperity of Life education products and documentaries.
Greg has also produced and directed over 1,000 television commercials, music videos, and feature films, including commercials that were featured on the Super Bowl and broadcast media platforms worldwide.
Now, before we dive into the product-line…
What Is Network Marketing?
As you know, when Prosperity of Life fell in my laps, I didn’t know what network marketing was. Or that the industry even existed.
Before I joined, I even shared Prosperity of Life’s business presentation with two close friends, only to have them call it a pyramid scheme and tell me that Prosperity of Life is a scam.
Of course, I didn’t listen and joined anyways. And I’m grateful I did, as the network marketing and home business industry changed my life forever.
Though, I wish someone would've educated me on what network marketing was before I joined…
So let me help you do that.
Multi-level marketing (MLM), also called network marketing or pyramid selling, is a controversial marketing strategy for the sale of products or services where the revenue of the MLM company is derived from a non-salaried workforce selling the company's products or services, while the earnings of the participants are derived from a pyramid-shaped or binary compensation commission system.– Wikipedia
Basically, network marketing is where a company sells their products and services through a network of independent sales representatives (or distributors) to new customers.
Instead of the company selling their own products by spending millions of dollars on advertising, distributors sell those products either through friends and family or by paying for advertising to generate their own leads or enquiries.
The network marketing model allows a company to have higher profit margins, and therefore pay bigger profits and commissions to distributors.
Why is network marketing controversial?
In brief, some companies operate with shady tactics that trick people into spending substantial amounts of money by promising “sizeable commissions” or that they'll “get rich” if they help to recruit others into the program.
Companies like this typically:
- Make presentations seem like everyone will make $10K, $20K, or $50K+ per month.
- They have never-ending “upsell” products into the tens of thousands of dollars.
- They use fear tactics to make people buy “all” the products, otherwise “you'll be leaving a lot of money on the table.”
- And most people only buy the products with the “hopes” of recruiting others to make the big incomes.
- Basically, the balance between distributors and customers is way off. Only a small percentage buy the products because they truly want the products vs the business opportunity.
As you can see…
It’s very easy for the average person to lose a lot of money with the wrong company…
I’ve personally seen people spend their entire life savings on a business with the promise that they’ll get rich, only to never make a single cent…even if they did the work.
But there's also great network marketing companies…
- Companies that don’t share income testimonials, so not to set unrealistic expectations.
- Where people promote products first, and the opportunity second.
- Where you don’t have to “buy all the products” in order to make a great income from selling them.
- Companies that maintain a ratio of 70% customers and 30% distributors.
- And where they don’t use fear tactics and never-ending upsell sequences to squeeze every last dime from new members.
So choosing the right network marketing business is very important. You don't want a company shut down because they were doing the wrong thing, after you've invested thousands of dollars with them.
In saying that, network marketing is still a great industry where anyone, with the right company, training and mentorship, can start making a great income from home.
Plus, some business leaders like Robert Kiyosaki endorse the industry…

Why Would You Want To Buy The Products?
You might have thought “Geez, the products are expensive.” And you’re absolutely right!
But before you buy any (or all of them), let me explain a few things. I’ll give you the good and the bad here…
From An Entrepreneurial Perspective:
There are only a few business opportunities out there where you can make high ticket sales like in Prosperity of Life.
For me personally, I would rather a business model with the ability to make $1000+ per sale than only $50-$100 per sale. It usually, depending on the business, requires the same level of work ethic for vastly different amounts of income.
From A Product Perspective:
I’ve invested well over $100,000 on my personal development and marketing education (in and outside of Prosperity of Life). Not because I’ve had to, but because I’m passionate about personal growth and developing new skill sets.
From everything I’ve done (including Tony Robbins, Robert Kiyosaki and more), Prosperity of Life is relatively up there in terms of quality, easy to understand and actionable content that can help one get results. (As long as you apply the material, of course!)
You won't find any high-level Personal Development education for free on the internet. Sure, you can find tons of short Personal Development videos on YouTube, but nothing in a structured course format that will help you go from A-Z as fast as possible.
In saying that, there’s also tons of personal development courses you can buy online. I've paid $300 for courses from Tony Robbins and other industry leaders that have helped me far more.
Prosperity of Life courses are great. Though most of its monetary value is in the ability to resell the business opportunity. Which is not necessarily a bad thing.
What about the Prosperity of Life events?
Yes, I’ve been to other events too and Prosperity of Life events are great personal development conferences. Though again, you're paying more for the the ability to resell the opportunity.
Do you have to buy the events?
Only if they’re a fit for you.
I’ve known a lot of distributors who only stayed at M1 or M7 level.
Personally, I upgraded a couple of months in because I wanted access to all the education and higher profits.
Did I (Alex) make money from selling the events?
I sure did, when I was with this company.
Should you upgrade to M8? (M8 means buying all the products: $27,000+)
Only if it’s a fit for you.
Each distributor promotes the M8 upgrade to their new members a couple of weeks in from joining. And you'll often hear company promotions for upgrading to M8 too.
I must say here…and this is the bad part…
At times, they might make you feel that you need to upgrade to M8, otherwise “you won't be as successful as you can be.” This can't be further from the truth.
I've seen some people upgrade to M8 and go on to make 6-figures+ per year. And I've seen many more go into debt or spend their life savings on M8, pay thousands on paid advertising, and not make a single cent.
This is probably the biggest catch about the business…That most people, even those that spend the $27,000+, don’t make any money at all. (Something they won’t tell you about!)
I’ll share with you how I feel about that in a sec.
For now, always remember to take your time with such a big outlay of money. And if you do decide to spend the $27K, make sure it’s money you’re willing to lose.
Is Prosperity Of Life MLM?
This is a tricky one.
I'll share what I've learned from industry knowledge. And FYI – some people will strongly disagree with this, and some will agree.
Prosperity of Life says it's “Not MLM” but that it's direct-sales. The truth is MLM, network marketing, and direct-sales…they all go hand in hand.
On the Direct Selling Association website, you'll see many MLM companies listed.
Prosperity of Life argues (and I used to too) that “Multi-Level” is when your profits are split with the people that joined before you.
For example, if you make a $100 sale, you might keep $30, the person before you makes $5, the person before that makes $4, the person before that makes $2, the person before that makes $1, etc.
And that's indeed true.
But that's just ONE type of compensation plan, called a Binary Plan. There's many compensation plan types. Prosperity of Life's is just another, specifically called the Australian 2-Up Plan.
Australian 2-Up: The distributor or recruiter will not earn by recruiting the first two purchasers. The sponsor (aka enrolling associate or upline) of the distributor earns the bonus. So the first two sales will go to the upline, and it is called a “2-Up” pay plan.– Infinite MLM
What about other MLM similarities?
They have team building, they use MLM language (upline, downline, crossline), they reference MLM industry trainers, they build multiple levels deep of distributors, they have strong MLM-style policies, and more.
The biggest difference to most MLM companies is: they sell high ticket products & events, they teach a type of online marketing, and they don't sell to friends and family.
But then there's other companies who also sell high ticket products and are ok with the MLM term. And there's also MLM companies who only teach social media marketing, never friends and family.
So is Prosperity of Life MLM? Or not?
My personal opinion today is that it's all those terms (MLM, network marketing, direct-sales). And there's nothing wrong with MLM. There's many great MLM companies and it's a growing industry.
But I'll leave that decision up to you.
How Does The Compensation Plan Work?
I want to keep this simple to understand, so I’ll cover the M1, M7 and M7 Fast Track in detail, and briefly touch on the M2 and M3 products.
In essence, the Prosperity of Life compensation plan works with 2 “pass up” qualification sales (the 2-Up Plan, as we previously talked about).
For example, let's say you purchased the M1 from me. Then the first two people that join through YOU (say John & Sarah) and purchase their products, John & Sarah will pay me.
“But wouldn’t I be missing out on money?” you ask…
You see, the 2 “pass up” sales do a couple of things.
Firstly, it’s an incentive for your enrolling associate to support and help you get your business up and running.
Secondly, once you understand the business, it’s an incentive for YOU to support and mentor your team members to build their businesses.
These sound great in theory. But the reality is quite different…
Short term, your enrolling associate may walk you through a couple of their tools. You might have 2 or 3 calls for this.
Long term, your enrolling associate is more there to answer very brief questions for you. It’s not coaching in the traditional sense. They're not there to hold your hand in helping you set up your business or review your marketing.
When I was in the business, and when I had questions for my enrolling associate, I only got 2 minutes of her time max. on the phone. And I never got any feedback on how to improve my marketing so it worked faster.
We’ll talk more about support and mentorship soon.
Thirdly, the 2 “pass up” sales are a type of residual income, where all you do is support your team members and you reap the benefits.
Once you’ve completed your qualification process, you'll never have to “pass up” sales again for that particular product you’re qualified in, and you won't have to meet sales quotas every month. You’ll make all the profits from every sale from then on…and from your enrolled members’ “pass up” sales too.
At least, that’s what Prosperity of Life promises. The truth is that most people don’t ever get qualified, and they quit a few months in after spending thousands more on advertising and getting zero sales.
Not what you expected to hear?
I told you I’d be brutally honest in this Prosperity of Life review, didn’t I!
The reality too is that some people DO get qualified. I don’t know the exact number. But from my 7 years experience in the company, it’s very low.
If I could throw out a number, I’d say less that 5% of new members get qualified out and into a profit making position.
So that begs the question…
Is it worth becoming one of the top 5% in order to make money from the 95% of people who will never make any money themselves? And especially if the 95% invest over $27,000+ with the promise of getting rich?
I know of one lady who spent $70,000 within 12 months. She bought all the products (M8), she spent tens of thousands on advertising, she did the work, and she only made ONE qualifying sale…which of course went to her enrolling associate. She didn’t make a single cent personally, so she quit at the 12 month mark.
Now, let's talk about how to get qualified faster….
Should You Get Started With M1 Or M7 Fast Track?
In Prosperity of Life’s presentation, they show that you can get qualified faster by purchasing M7 Fast Track, which is just a combination of the M1 and M7 products bundled together.
If you only purchase the M1, you would complete 2 “pass up” sales to become a qualified M1 Director. If you then purchase the M7 later, you would complete 2 more “pass up” sales to become a qualified M7 Director.
Side note: A “Director” just means you're qualified and can now make all the profits from a particular product.
However, if you purchase the M7 Fast Track from the beginning you’ll only complete 2 “pass up” sales in total, and you’ll be qualified out as an M1 and M7 Director.
So which one should you get?
That depends on your goals and your current financial position.
If you want to get qualified faster, go M7 Fast Track. Otherwise, M1 is also a good option.
But keep in mind – 95% of people never make money with this business.
I’m not saying that you will or you won’t make any money at all. I’m only suggesting that you make the wisest financial decision for yourself.
How Does The M2 & M3 Compensation Plans Work?
The M2 and M3 products have a different compensation plan.
Basically, you must complete 5 “pass up” sales for each product. And the pass up sales can happen from a combination of yours and your enroller’s M2 or M3 sales to new distributors.
If I try to explain this any more, I’d probably do a terrible job LOL
So let’s just leave it at this…
In order to profit from the M2 and M3, a distributor must also get qualified at each of those products.
The company has various promotions for new distributors to buy these higher end products with the promise of making more money.
For example, the M8 offer where they ask you to invest over $27,000 for products.
People that buy the M8 offer do so more so they can profit from those products than the value of the products (or events) themselves. Another thing we’ll talk about in a sec.
What Other Costs Are Involved?
So other than purchasing the M1 or M7 Fast Track when you join, maybe the M2 and M3 a couple of weeks in, and passing up some sales, you’ll also have on-going monthly non-hidden and hidden expenses.
The total “non-hidden” expenses is $163 USD the first month, then $153 USD per month thereafter...
1) Registration & Distributor Website with Back Office
This is where you access the marketing training, pre-written ads and access information on the growth of your business.
$49.95 for the first month, $39.95/month thereafter.
2) Lead Manager
This is a tool that helps you to keep track of all your leads. Similar to a Customer Relationship Manager (CRM).
3) Training Portal
This is to access the daily live training calls and livestreams.
4) Website Builder (Unbounce.com)
This is a tool where you can set up pre-made marketing landing pages to generate leads.
The total “hidden” expenses depends on what a distributor’s advertising budget is…
1) Annual Membership Renewal Fee
A fee charged every January to renew a member’s distributorship.
Prosperity of Life doesn't mention this fee on their presentation, and it catches most distributors by surprise when their first year in the company comes around. So I believe it’s important for you to know.
2) Advertising Expenses
One of the most common questions I got when I was building the Prosperity of Life business was: “How much should I expect to spend on advertising?”
The company taught me to give a totally different answer then to what I'll give you now.
The old me would say:
“You can spend as much money or as little as you like. Some members choose to not spend any money and only do free advertising methods. Others choose to spend money on advertising to ‘go faster.’ I’d recommend starting with at least $100 per month.”
Sounds attractive, right?
The truth is this business is heavily based on paid advertising. And their free marketing training is, unfortunately, no where close to the high quality training available in the industry right now (and similar with their paid ads training).
For paid advertising, sure you can start with $100/mo.
But expect to spend $2000-4000+ per month for any significant results.
PRO TIP – When someone shares big income testimonials, ask: “What percentage of that did you spend to make those $50,000 per month?
You’ll often find distributors spending 50% or more. In fact, I’ve heard cases of people spending more in advertising than what they made at those income levels.
And this typically comes down to gaps in Prosperity of Life’s marketing training, which we’ll talk about now…
How Does The Marketing Work? And Does It Work?
Unfortunately, marketing is where Prosperity of Life falls down the most. You wouldn’t expect it to, being a business that says is digital marketing based.
4 years into Prosperity of Life, I started not enjoying the business. The main reason was I didn’t feel proficient in marketing one bit.
Though you'd expect to be somewhat proficient 4 years in, right?
A lot of my ads didn’t work and I didn’t know why, let alone know how to improve my ads or marketing. And the best advice I kept hearing in the company was to “keep throwing spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks.”
Can you imagine playing darts blindfolded? You’d have to throw TONS of darts at the dartboard to eventually get one or two darts in the bullseye.
That’s exactly how Prosperity of Life’s marketing feels.
You do marketing blindfolded. And you either have to post hundreds of free ads on job boards, or spend thousands on advertising and hope that one or two ads will work.
And when you do get one dart in the bullseye, you don’t know why or how to replicate it again. Because you never developed any real skillsets.
So what type of marketing does Prosperity of Life offer?
They train on how to market your business by placing paid “work from home” ads using Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, and more. They also have free marketing training, mostly to do with posting ads on classified sites and job boards like Craigslist, Kijiji, Gumtree and others.
It’s totally up to you if you set aside a budget for paid ads, though I’d recommend it with this business.
Unfortunately, their free marketing training is not as effective compared to what else is available in the industry right now. (I consistently see people – not in Prosperity of Life – make 6-figures their first year using only free marketing strategies).
And because there’s a lot of gaps in their marketing training, even their paid ads training is not as effective as it could be.
You’ll rely more on luck than developing any transferrable marketing skillsets.
One warning here, and a tip for success…
There's a mentality in Prosperity of Life that to be successful you need to “spend more money on advertising”. I heard that over and over, and I saw plenty of people spend tens of thousands on advertising and get little to no results. Most of them quit.
The reality is that “spending more money on advertising” is just half the secret. The other and more important secret is to continually develop your marketing skillsets.
If your marketing isn't working, don't spend more money on it. Instead, get more skilled. And the more skilled you get, THEN slowly spend more money on advertising…while you track and measure your results.
Unfortunately, they don’t teach how to track & measure your ads in Prosperity of Life. And what you can’t measure, you can’t improve.
So if they don't give you the answers you need, seek out that knowledge, and/or hire a marketing coach.
How does the simple 3-step system work?
To make money with Prosperity of Life, there’s a 3-step system all distributors have to follow.
Step 1: Place An Ad
As we’ve discussed, Prosperity of Life will teach you how to place “work from home” ads on platforms like Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, etc, to generate leads (or enquiries of people curious about the opportunity).
You’ve most likely seen them. That’s how you would have found the opportunity.
The company will give you example work from home ads you can copy and tweak to make your own. This is great, in that it’s somewhat easy to get started with (ie. you don’t gave to be an expert).
But unfortunately, they don't teach you how to be proficient with writing ads over time. Because of this, many members struggle to make their ads work.
But that doesn’t mean it’s not possible. It’ll just take patience and handling some frustration.
Step 2: Interview Leads & Qualify
Once you’ve generated a lead, the next step is to call them for a scripted interview.
The purpose of this call is to “qualify” prospects and see if they’re a good fit for the opportunity. But also, so you can get through big enough numbers of people, and then only deal with people who are more likely to buy.
For example, you wouldn’t want to only call college students who just want to earn a couple hundred dollars per week. You’d waste your time because they’re more interested in getting their college degree than investing in a business. And most wouldn’t be able to afford the investment at that stage of their lives.
So the interview is a great process.
However, an issue here is they don't teach you how to generate highly-interested leads or prospects. Most people just aren't interested, so you’ll spend a lot of time on the phone with prospects that will never buy.
You’ll get a lot of people that don’t answer the phone, you’ll leave a lot of voicemails, you’ll get a lot of no-shows on follow up calls, and you’ll experience rejection on a daily basis.
When I was with Prosperity of Life, I did the phone calls because it brought in money. Though, if I knew at the time that there was a better way, I would have preferred not to do so many phone calls.
But it works. And some people are ok with making those calls.
So you understand the numbers, which can help you if you join…
On average, you’ll need to call 100 leads in order to get 1 solid ‘yes’.
But they won’t buy right away. As, with this business, it takes on average 6 to 9 months for someone that says Yes to get started and buy.
So you’ll want to keep spending money on advertising, to keep putting people through the system for a few month, until sales pop out the other side.
Step 3: Following Up
Once a qualified prospect has gone through the information, a follow up call happens to answer their questions.
Firstly, most prospects do not show up for that call. For the small percentage that do, a traditional process in the network marketing industry happens – the 3 way call.
The 3 way call is where your enroller gets on a conference call with you and your prospect…so your enroller can answer your prospect’s questions for you.
These calls typically range from 30 to 60 mins each.
Eventually, you’ll also be supporting your team members by doing 3 way calls for them and their prospects.
And again, people that say ‘yes’ that they want to get started, once a 3 way call is done, they’ll usually take 6 to 9 months to come back, join, and buy.
Is The Prosperity Of Life Opportunity Easy?
Though Prosperity of Life suggests that the opportunity is simple (easy, even)… it’s not.
But then, what business is easy?
None really. They all require developing new skills and a real work ethic.
And though Prosperity of Life has step-by-step training…
Their training has a lot of gaps, and they’re still behind the curve with digital marketing.
For example, most Prosperity of Live members constantly have their ad accounts shut down, because social media platforms don’t like network marketing.
For members that make it work, it’s a constant battle of creating new social media accounts under new names in order to keep advertising, while breaking those platforms’ policies.
And having learned from top marketers in the industry…
I’ve discovered that if you truly learn digital marketing, you won’t run into these problems with social media platforms.
Unfortunately, Prosperity of Life is still behind. And because of this, marketing is not so easy with their opportunity.
But if you do join the opportunity (and though they're against this advice), if one day you need outside help, training or coaching…look for it.
Because the better you get, and the more skills you gain as a digital marketer, the easier building an online business will be!
Is Prosperity Of Life Scientology?
In the 7 years I was with Prosperity of Life, I didn't hear them teach Scientology. Prosperity of Life revolves around personal development & wealth creation principles.
And yes, Shane Krider is a member of the Church of Scientology.
In fact, I was conflicted about it when I found out early into the business. So I did my research to understand both sides of the story…
And then, I came to the conclusion that everyone is entitled to their own personal beliefs – and I respect that.
But again, from my experience, I found Prosperity of Life to be free of religious and political beliefs.
Is Prosperity Of Life A Pyramid Scheme?
When I was with POL, I would have said “no, it’s not a pyramid scheme.”
Today, my answer is the same…but that it’s also on a fine line of not being a pyramid scheme.
Over the years, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has shut down some network marketing companies, because they primarily focused on recruiting people for the business opportunity. So then, those new recruits can recruit more people to do the same thing.
And sure, those companies made product sales. But most people that bought them did so so they could get qualified to resell them, not because they truly wanted the products.
Almost every year, government authorities shut down 1 to 2 companies and declare them a pyramid scheme, while thousands of people lose a lot of money.
The companies most protected from this are those that are more product-focused than opportunity-focused…and those who have a bigger percentage of customers compared to distributors. Say 70% customers vs 30% distributors.
As from my 7 years in Prosperity of Life, I saw most distributors only focused on bringing in more distributors. There’s definitely an imbalance. Though I don’t know the exact numbers.
I’m not saying that government authorities will shut down Prosperity of Life one day. It’s just important to be aware of what happens in the industry so you can make better decisions for yourself.
What about network marketing? Is it a pyramid scheme too?
This video will humorously answer that question…
Do You Have To “Sell” In Prosperity Of Life?
This is a touchy one, so all I can do is give you my opinion.
Firstly, no matter what anyone tells you, if a business requires the sale of products to make revenue, it's sales. From this standpoint, Prosperity of Life is a sales company.
Secondly, the business is based on a script. When you call the leads you’ve generated, you’ll run through a scripted interview to find out if the Prosperity Of Life opportunity is a fit for them.
However, you won’t have to “hard sell,” meaning you won’t have to convince or overcome objections. Your enrolling associate will answer the questions of your prospects on a “3 way” conference call.
In time, you’ll also be doing 3 way calls for your team members and their prospects.
And though Prosperity of Life gives you a script, a script is a crutch…
Yes, a script is a great way to get started when you’re new. But over time, the more skills you learn around prospecting, recruiting and sales, the easier building a business will be.
Why? Well, a script will make you sounds like a robot. And speaking with people is all about connection, building relationships, and knowing what a prospect’s needs and desires are.
And when you’re able to make that connection and truly serve a prospect (without sounding like a robot or someone you’re not), you can have more people join any opportunity or buy any product or service with a lot less effort.
Do I Have To Get On The Phone?
Yes, the Prosperity of Life opportunity relies heavily on phone calls.
As we've discussed, the process involves generating leads (or enquiries), calling all your leads, providing them information, calling them back to follow up, doing 3 way calls with your enrolling associate, eventually doing 3 way calls for yourself and your own team members, and training your new team members on how to use the tools.
And based on my experience and the experience of others, the more your business grows, the more time you'll spend on the phone. Especially as you'll be supporting more and more of your team members with their 3 way calls.
In fact, expect to spend up to 4-6 hours on the phone daily once you've reached a certain level of success.
Unfortunately, there's no other way with Prosperity of Life. So if you want to learn how to build a highly leveraged online business, without spending hours on the phone each day, this company might not be the right fit.
An Inside Look Into Prosperity Of Life…
In this video I pull back the curtains and take you on a behind the scenes tour of Prosperity of Life's systems, tools and products.
Note: I made this video in 2016 when I was still with POL. Some of the training and products have changed since then. My views of the company have also changed.
Reg Flags You Won’t Find Anywhere Else!
So while Prosperity of Life is a legitimate opportunity, and not a pyramid scheme, there’s some red flags you need to know about…ones that were raised for me inside the company.
Red Flag #1 – A History of Legal Problems
Prosperity of Life was born from former company Liberty League International (LLI), co-owned by Shane Krider.
Liberty League had a history of legal problems. But they were never conclusive and the company was never declared a pyramid scheme.
Let's get into the facts…
Terry Goddard Settles With Personal Development Marketing Company…
In 2006, Office of Attorney General Terry Goddard required Liberty League International to pay a $115,000 settlement.
First, for a company that was valued at over $170 million, that’s a very small settlement. This alone raises questions about the legal proceedings.
Second, what happened was that a top distributor at the time was tricking prospects into spending substantial amounts of money by guaranteeing results.
And because of that, the company landed in hot water and went to court.
Side note: Any sort of ‘guaranteed results' when selling an opportunity, product or service is illegal all around the world.
Shane Krider, out of his own accord, offered the $115,000 settlement. Because he understood the top distributor did wrong.
The settlement happened, and the top distributor got kicked out of the company.
In an FTC document, there’s no mention that the company was declared a pyramid scheme.
Liberty League Called A $5 Million Scam…
In 2009, Andrew S. Friedman & Patricia N. Syverson (two class action lawyers) saw an opportunity for easy money.
Because of the 2006 settlement, they thought it would be easy to sue Liberty League for allegedly scamming people. So they got a class action lawsuit against the company.
The class action lawyers got 3 disgruntled ex-distributors on board and went to court.
Though a news article online calls Liberty League a $5 Million Scam, that’s the article alone. The article only alleges that it’s a pyramid scheme.
Nothing came out of the lawsuit, and LLI was not declared a pyramid scheme.
Liberty League Found To Be A Pyramid Scheme In Australia…
An article on BehindMLM.com, a website known for its criticism of the MLM industry, says that Liberty League was found to be a pyramid scheme in New South Wales, Australia.
There’s no official word from NSW Fair Trading on Liberty League International, and a letter found online could be manufactured.
We can't be sure either way.
However, during my decade in the industry, when a network marketing company is officially declared a pyramid scheme, it’s typically a lengthy court process to get there…
And it’s always published online by government agencies and mainstream news outlets, not bedroom blog sites.
What do I (Alex) think of all this?
Many companies in the network marketing industry have been targets of class action lawsuits. And some have been shut down too.
My opinion is that Prosperity of Life is not a pyramid scheme, but it’s in a gray area. And it does have the potential to be declared a pyramid scheme in the future.
Though, any company can pivot and make changes so it gets further away from the pyramid scheme definition.
Will Prosperity of Life do that? I don’t know.
But I have seen many companies make significant changes so they’re more product-focused than opportunity-focused.
In the end, only YOU can decide whether Prosperity of Life is a pyramid scheme or not.
Red Flag #2 – Company Name Changes
Over the years, Prosperity of Life has had a few name changes, many of them understandable as the company evolved…or as they created different names for different departments.
Around 2017, one concern for me personally was when the company started to be structured around the world.
For example, it went from only being Polaris Global in Arizona USA… to then all tool subscriptions being paid to Polaris Global, and all products & event tickets paid to Xpansion Event Management Services’ (XEMS) bank account in Dubai UAE.
I found this a bit strange, especially as Dubai is famously known to be a tax haven. And the XEMS name is not consistent with the Polaris Global or Prosperity of Life brands.
Though I never came to a conclusion about this, I understand many companies are legally structured around the world – like Google or Facebook.
But it’s worth a mention as I know others have questioned this too.
Red Flag #3 – Corporate Control of Information
This is one of the first red flags I noticed inside Prosperity of Life, especially when I was just starting to have success.
I had just made a 5-figure profit week, and Rachel Krider asked me to be interviewed on a training call.
The day before the training, Rachel asked to speak with me. So we hopped on the phone and she coached me on what to say and what not to say.
During the call, I told her about how I’d recently spent US$5000 on advertising in one month and I got zero sales. But that thankfully, I generated $7000 from some other marketing campaigns.
She specifically told me not to share that story on the training call because “it could scare new members.”
I thought that was fair at the time, but I also felt uncomfortable that information had to be withheld.
Today, I would be more than happy to share that story. Especially because it’s a lesson on the importance of developing marketing skillsets versus just throwing more money at marketing and hoping that it’ll stick.
But the concept of ‘developing your marketing skillsets’ is one I didn’t hear once in the 7 years I was with Prosperity of Life.
And I’ve heard plenty of stories like that from ex-members…
The most common one, when a distributor is invited onto a live training call because they made a big amount of money. For example, $20,000 in a week or month.
But the reality is that they either spent a lot more on advertising over the months or years than sales they’ve made…or they’re getting into more and more debt just to keep their paid ads running.
And it doesn’t help when you’re constantly told on training calls to “spend more money on advertising.”
Again, not once did I hear good advice like “develop your marketing skillsets, spend slowly on advertising, track & measure your results, get feedback from a coach, and once your ads are working at a small scale…only then increase your advertising spend.”
So information is closely controlled by corporate…from the business presentation right through to the training calls.
Red Flag #4 – You’re Locked Into The Opportunity
4.5 years into the business, I wasn’t happy with Prosperity of Life’s marketing training. I didn’t feel one bit proficient in marketing. So I bought training from top marketing leaders in the industry.
The more I learned, the more my were eyes opened to what real online marketing was. And as I implemented it into my Prosperity of Life business, and realizing that it worked better, I decided to create my own marketing courses and coaching program.
This landed me in hot water with Prosperity of Life corporate. I had multiple calls with the compliance department because they didn’t like me selling my own courses and coaching program online. They said it was a conflict of interest.
This was something that created a lot of stress for me. Because though at the time I enjoyed being in the Prosperity of Life community, I had also built a passion for training others in the industry.
This was one of many reasons why I left Prosperity of Life…
Because though it says in their compliance guide that members can have other businesses, the reality is very different once you’re making money with their program.
They keep you locked in and only wanting you to promote their stuff. I honestly felt more like a sales rep than truly owning my own online business.
And I’ve heard multiple stories of members that left because they weren’t allowed to start their own brand, business or products…or they got kicked out for promoting other companies’ products or programs.
Pro Tip – A good program will not only have the ability to promote their program and products, but they’ll also teach you how to be self-reliant, and know how to source other products online that you can sell to build a long term, sustainable business.
Red Flag #5 – You Don’t Get Coaching
Though Prosperity of Life says in their presentation that they offer coaching and mentorship, unfortunately they don’t.
They have their recorded marketing training and daily live training calls, but they’re not places you can ask in-depth questions or get your websites or ads reviewed.
When you ask your enroller questions, the company teaches to just say “Go back through the training videos” over and over again. And being a coach myself now, and having hired marketing coaches too, that response is NOT coaching.
Your enroller will never jump on Zoom with you to review your marketing and show you how to improve and get it working faster. There’s also no group coaching environments where that happens.
The only time you might get some coaching is when they occasionally add it as an offer for people that upgrade to M8 (buying all the products for $27,000+). You might get ONE session with a top leader in the company or Rachel Krider herself. But nothing on-going.
And when they say you can call your enroller, you’ll only get a couple of minutes of their time if you're lucky. I remember calling my enroller a few times, and because she was so busy on the phone each day, I only got 2 minutes max.
This was another reason why I left Prosperity of Life. Because I could no longer promote a company where members don’t get the training or coaching they need to be successful.
Red Flad #6 – The Truth Behind Video Testimonials
This was probably the biggest red flag that came up just before I quit Prosperity of Life.
Have you seen those fancy videos of Prosperity of Life members living a luxurious lifestyle in Thailand and around the world? They’re in fancy hotels, on yachts, and living the life?
It looks like everyone in Prosperity of Life is making money, right?
In 95% of those videos, those people haven’t made a single cent in the business…
So how do they get to live such a luxurious life like those videos suggest?
The reality: by getting into debt.
Here’s how it happens… A couple of weeks into Prosperity of Life, an offer is presented to new members to buy all the products (to go M8 by investing more than $27,000).
And when you invest that money, Prosperity of Life “gives” you the Video 6 Pack Promotion, as it’s called.
When I was with the company, they gave you $1000 back for flights, they paid for your accomodation in Thailand, and their video team recorded it for you.
You could then start marketing with a video that only implies you’re making a lot of money, even if you haven’t made a single cent.
See how that was a big red flag for me?
I personally found the strategy of these implied video testimonials lacking integrity.
And unfortunately, many people have lost a lot of money because they thought the fancy videos would make them money, so they spent the tens of thousands for them…only to later quit because they couldn’t get their marketing to work. (Hint: they weren’t taught real skillsets.)
But I’ll let you decide what to think of this.
Do I (Alex) Still Recommend Prosperity Of Life?
I’ve seen too many people not get the training and support they need to be successful, lose a lot of money, and get hurt spiritually and emotionally.
The biggest reason though is that Prosperity of Life is not a business where you’ll learn real, transferable online business and marketing skills.
But that’s not saying that it won’t be for you. I've presented you the facts, taken you behind the scenes, and you now know both sides of the story.
Only you can decide if it's a fit for you, or not.
Who Is Prosperity Of Life Best For?
Prosperity of Life is best suited for people who like personal development, who want to learn from Shane Krider, who like Shane’s style, and don’t mind investing thousands of dollars for it.
If you truly want to invest in their products because you see value in them, go for it.
If you also intend to never promote other products or services, never create your own courses or coaching program, and if you’ll only ever promote Prosperity of Life, then it possibly might be for you.
Who Is Prosperity Of Life NOT For?
If you’re looking for a business where you’ll learn real, transferrable skillsets that you can use with any business to promote any products or services, and know how to make money no matter what happens to a company, the industry, or the world…then Prosperity of Life might not be for you.
It’s also not for people who want the best training, coaching and on-going support, or for people who don’t want to spend hours on the phone each day talking to strangers.
Why Did I (Alex) Leave Prosperity Of Life?
As with the rest of this review, some people will appreciate this section, others will see it with critical eyes – and that's ok. The important thing for me is to be transparent.
I left Prosperity Of Life in December 2018 after thinking long and hard about it.
During my last 3 years there, I invested a lot of time and money outside the company with the intent of developing my online marketing skills to a high level.
As a result, I've progressed so much and have even had industry recognition, which has been amazing.
Here's what happened…
Unfortunately over time, the better my marketing got and the more exposure I received in the industry, the more negative feedback that started arising from inside Prosperity of Life!
I started getting compliance issues because my marketing was misunderstood, I was being frowned upon by some leaders, my wife and I were avoided by other leaders at company events, misperceptions of me were growing in the company, there was apparent confusion and fear in the community because of my marketing, and the list goes on.
As a result of all this, I experienced some great stress and anxiety during my last few months, and it was starting to affect my family. I thought if I kept going it would all get better. But it didn’t.
And to be honest, I lost my passion for this company a couple of months before I quit. The only thing that kept me going was supporting my team and my desire to help them succeed at their personal business goals, and also coaching people outside the company. I just wanted to help people trying to break free the way I had.
But towards the end, I realized I had to put myself and my family first.
So that’s when I made the decision to leave Prosperity of Life and move on to a new company.
And I’m grateful I did, as I’m very happy with the increase in results I've achieved, and the thousands of people I’ve helped.
How I Make Money Online Now…
In the end, I moved to a company in the online business and marketing education space.
This company’s main focus is to help people who want to start their own online business get the education, system, and mentorship they need to create success.
All by revealing the secrets to sourcing digital products online, and marketing them using free and/or paid advertising methods.
Plus, they include a referral program that can be used to earn high ticket commissions by promoting the company's own products.
This means you won’t be stuck only promoting one company’s products.
They’ll show you how to be self-reliant and find other great products to promote online…so you never have to worry about making money again.
And you can do it all without recruiting anyone, making phone calls, creating products, carrying inventory, investing tens of thousands of dollars, or spending money on paid ads!

I have never read a review THAT detailed!!! Thanks so much for sharing it Alex!! You’re a ROCKSTAR!
Haha yeah, I went all out Jelena! I’m all about adding value 🙂
Hey Alex. Thank you for your review. I’m a 24 yr old. I graduated with a music degree and don’t have a job in my field but I want to do music. I also want money to retire my mom as I live with her currently. I want to move out to California to pursue my dreams. I wanted to raise money and start prosperity for life because I’m Passionate about self development and I want to work from
Home to have more freedom to focus on music and traveling and doing mostly other things in life while receiving residual income and help others do that as well. I am
Seriously considering doing prosperity for life but I’m wondering if there are better opportunities for me personally. What do you think?
Hi Kelly, thanks for your comment. And sorry for the delay.
Also, thanks for sharing your story. Some of it (the music part) sounds very familiar, as that was something I once pursued.
As for your question, there are definintely options. If it’s “better” really depends on what YOU are looking for (and what you’re not looking for too).
I have your email address, so we can continue this conversation that way.
Hi Alex thanks for this review I am considering
POL it does sound a bit technical but the training is there for the taking
What businesses are also worth considering in your opinion
Hi Leone, sorry for the delay. I took the last week off from work.
If you’d still like to explore options, please send me a message on my Facebook page at https://fb.com/alexfordlive
Happy to chat and see how I can help.
So I’ve been thinking about joining or rather saving the money to start. I want something lucrative that gives me time freedom and can work remotely. After reading your review and seeing you actually reply to the article comments I can tell you’re at least an active and real person as opposed to these gurus all over the internet. I don’t know if you’ve seen them, but as I was looking through reviews about pol many sites say it is a pyramid scheme, in disguise… However, I also know a lot of people don’t take time to apply themself or give up on anything that’s not traditional work and label it a scam. So it’s very hard to actually discern what is going to actually work for someone or if something is a ripoff, which really depends on an individual if things are legit opportunities. Anyway, before I make my decision. I’m curious to find out about your opportunity. Please inform me what you are doing. Thanks
Hi Brian, thanks for the compliment. I strive to be real and authentic, not a “guru”.
And your observation is quite spot on. Some people become disgruntled customers because they expected money to magically fall out of the sky, without doing any real work. That goes for any online business or course that promises to teach how to make money.
Though, businesses can also vary. And I recommend choosing a business that will help stack the deck in one’s favor.
As for your request, I’ve emailed you with more information.
yesterday I spent 4 hours going through their videos and traing and reviews and it all seemed way too good to be true thanks to you I know it was and you probably saved me from going into a giant debt, so thank you very much for sharing your experience with PoL.
Hi Julia, You’re welcome! There definitely are legit online businesses that don’t require such a huge investment, and still have the same kind of returns. You just gotta look. All the best!
Great review Alex. Very detailed. You obviously know the product well.
However I also need to say that your own pitch comes across as even more of a scam, with CC needed to get any info at all. No overview of what you offer, only a monologue of how it enabled you to escape from the world you were in.
An overview what it is you offer b4 looking for commitment would look more professional and less of a scam. I am looking for a new online business, one that works, and am interested to hear the bones of how it works rather than how it made you more money when you needed it.
Hi Peter, thanks for the comment. Glad you got value from the review.
Regarding what I now recommend, I’m not sure what you mean as there’s two videos to watch. It seems you might have just watched the first video. The second video is about the online business challenge and it explains well what it’s about.
I would suggest going through the process again.
I also sent you a personal email but I didn’t hear back from you. I have other resources I can share that explains the business better. I’ll email you again with it.
Wow you shared so much value here and it’s probably the most detailed review I have read 🙂
Keep rocking buddy!
Thanks Vitaliy! I’m glad you found it information.
Thanks for this review. I found it both informative and real. I have been considering POL for a while now but still on the fence. I really love the idea of personal development but am really nervous of the price points. Hopefully I can make up my mind soon. This review has helped me. Thanks again!
Hi Michelle, you’re welcome! 🙂
Also, if POL doesn’t end up being the right fit, let me know. I know of a good alternative that’s much more affordable to get started.
Otherwise, all the best with it!
Hi Alex. Please share your cheaper alternative. When I exchange the US dollars to South African Rand it becomes very expensive.
Hi Venessa, thanks for your comment. I’ve sent you an email with more information.
In doing my due diligence, I came across your article on Prosperity of Life. I thought about joining, but wanted to reach out to you, as you mention knowing of another opportunity? I’d like to know more.
Hi Raine, thanks for your comment! I just emailed you to start a conversation.
I joined POL last year and I never want anyone else to go through what I experienced with them and the person that I signed under. After not be successful with marketing no matter how I wrote the ad, I came to realise that job boards where aware of MLM schemes and had really cracked down on business ads posing as a potential job. So I requested a refund under the “10 day cooling off policy’ and the M8 director refused to honour my request. The thing is the 10 day cooling off policy is issued by POL not the M8 director. So I have put in a formal complaint to Consumer Protection to obtain a refund which I’m entitled too. What an absolute disgrace the company is. No integrity or sincerity at all. It’s a scam at the highest level. The worst thing about it is that they all know what they are doing and don’t give a damn.
Hi Pat, sorry to hear about your experience. This is the first time I’ve heard of a distributor not wanting to refund within the 10 days. In fact, they should have as they have a distributor agreement with the company, and the 10 day cooling off policy is something they have to abide by. I hope you’re able to find a solution!
Thanks for the reply. The compliance lady whom works directly for Pol asked my M8 director who said she would not honour my request for a refund. Should I email pol again and explain about the policy?
Hi Pat, it’s up to you. If you believe you were within the policy and have the evidence to prove that was the case, why not. It might be worth a try. Good luck with it!
Hi Alex I am also considering prosperity of life but would also like cheaper alternatives
Thanks for the honest review!
Also interested in the alternatives you have in scope.
Hi Emilie, thanks for your comment! I’ve emailed you to start a conversation.
Awesome review-thank you Alex. This is very new to me.
You’re welcome Elizabeth! I was new to it at some point too 🙂
Great review Thankyou
The more I read about online marketing businesses the more I am enclosed to stick to traditional work. Stifling I know but there just seems to be a consensus that you need to go it on ur own to get somewhere
You’re welcome Elle.
And correct. Business owner responsibilities are very different to traditional work. A business isn’t for everyone, and that’s ok.
All the best!
Very disillusioned with PoL at the mo – love PD But the Pol price points are too high for many of my prospects –
Could you mail me info in the ‘alternative ‘
Hi Kevin, thanks for your comment! And sorry to hear about your experience with POL. I understand it.
Also, I got your message on Facebook. I’ve just replied so we can chat on there.
Great Post thanks
You’re welcome Alan! I hope it was informative enough.
Alex, great post on the company. Thanks for this information.
You’re welcome Artreice!
Very in depth review. I wasn’t sure if Prosperity Of Life was legit. Your review makes me more comfortable about joining. Thank you Alex
You’re welcome Michael! Thanks for stopping by.
OMG what a review, so packed with detail and personal experiences, testimony, stats, one has no excuse if they are looking into Polaris Global not to make a definitive decision one way or another!
Thanks Julie… that was the goal!
End of the day it’s about informing people so they can make the decision, whether it’s a YES or NO.
People that don’t make ANY decisions, live in nowhere land… and that’s why they never seem to move forward in life.
Thank u im looking into this business and your review was great in making me feel more at ease.
Hi Maria, glad I was able to help. All the best with making the right decision for yourself.
What a review… thanks brother!! I will hopefully be going with this business
You’re welcome, Kuldeep. All the best with it!!
Hi Alex, thank you for your honesty in your review. I am seriously looking at POL. I am extremely nervous of making the incorrect decision. Please send me other options to also consider.
Thank you so very much.
Thanks for your comment! I just sent you an email regarding your request.
Thank you for this honest review. I googled Prosperity of Life and was inundated with marketing-type redirect reviews about how awful and expensive the product was and how it was a MLM scheme. I’m glad I came across this review. I honestly feel that experience is the best teacher so I’ll probably try it out.
You’re welcome Echo! Glad this review was able to help 🙂
Great review Alex…. sounds like an interesting opportunity…thanks for sharing this
You’re welcome Ron 🙂
Very comprehensive detailed review Alex, everyone looking into the opportunity should read this. Also thanks for pointing out the differences in the business model from just traditional MLM.
You’re welcome Kay! I think it was important to point that out, as some people get confused with this.
I’d never heard of this company before but I’m well informed now. Good work on the review bro 🙂
Glad the review has well informed you, Carl 🙂 And thanks!
Wow — What an indepth review and so informative as a result. If someone is looking for higher ticket products, this certainly seems something to consider. Thanks Alex.
You’re welcome Carol 🙂
Love your videos Alex. What detail you gave in this review. Great post
Glad you did Mark! Yep, it sure is super detailed.
Very Detailed Review, Thanks for sharing alex
You’re welcome Yemisi!
Wow, you have explained everything in details about Prosperity of Life review, Alex. I’ve learned so much from your post…thanks for sharing.
You’re welcome Sherri! I’m glad it’s informed you well.
What a super awesome review, you shared a ton of valuable information to make an informative answer!
I sure did Lynette. I’m sure anyone who comes across it will feel the same.
I’ve been feeling super confident about making PoL work for me, but yes, the negative reviews are intimidating. Before I take the final plunge, could you share your alternatives, that I can at least have checked out more options. Thanks!
Hi Kim, thanks for your comment. And I understand, as there’s a lot of negative reviews online.
I’ve emailed you with more info about alternatives.
Very thorough. Thanks Alex!
You’re welcome Justin!
Thanks for sharing this opportunity. I must admit that I am one of the wary ones. What you have shared here is quite detailed and one could make an informed decision with it. 🙂
You’re welcome Claudette!
Thanks for being honest too… that’s perfectly normal feelings to experience.
Ok, first of all I wasn’t expecting a full out training! Great content! Whew…. BOOM! Bookmarked…
Haha that’s funny Socrates! You’re so right, it’s more like a training than a review LOL
Wow Alex you nailed everything just as it is. Being part of Polaris myself I can honestly say the personal development is everything you mentioned. To me it has been life changing and Shane Krider does a phenomenal job of sharing his insights and experiences on many of the calls. Rachel’s also very inspiring and she walked the shoes just like any distributor here so she knows what she is talking about!
If someone, like yourself Alex is a high achiever, then this definitely is the opportunity for them. Have I made alot of money with this opportunity myself? No. But I didn’t follow the easy 3 step system – day in – day – out either. I have had a few big sale days so that has been pretty cool.
More importantly though the self development I learned and the people I have meet at one day events is just wonderful. And through this I am thrilled to have met you!
A really really good and “Brutally honest Review” Alex – it is spot on!
I totally agree. If it wasn’t for the Personal Development in Prosperity Of Life / Polaris Global, I wouldn’t have become the person that’s allowed me to create everything I have today. I’m so grateful for the opportunity and products Shane, Rachel & Greg have for us here!
Thanks for your transparency and honesty too. I think it’s very valuable for others to see that this business requires work and commitment to get the results!
So glad to have met you too Sharon 🙂 And yes, this community is incredible… Everyone’s so positive and on purpose with their lives.
Thanks for taking the time to write such an awesome comment/testimonial!
As I’ve come to expect Alex, In essence, your review was the perfect balance between being objective and being personally committed to something that really works for you. I love how you live your values and are open to respectfully allowing others to choose their own appropriately relevant path.
I guess the bottom line is with me, your work does engender TRUST and credibility because of your care and astuteness…There’s no BS but there’s freshness, there’s enthusiasm and there’s commitment….a beautifully winning formula… You deserve the best…and thanks a million for the gift of your time, your empathy, your experience and your respect…Cheers, Stuart
Hey Stuart! I appreciate you for taking the time to leave an amazing response.
I’m glad that the values I live by shine through in all I do.
Thanks for your comment 🙂
Alex >> this is super cool and thank you for all this info !!~
Loving your videos and content !!~ I share this one every now and then >> Is Network Marketing A Pyramid Scheme !~
Hey Sandra, you’re welcome! Glad you enjoyed the content 🙂
Hey Alex, I was like so many other people when I started off in this business, but despite having a health cynicism, something in my gut told me that this business and the people in it were legitimate, collaborative, genuine and honest. This has proven to be true. I am extremely happy to be a part of the crew and run this business, mainly because I get to offer people the genuine opportunity to free themselves of many limitations and get wealthy, not just with their bank balance, but in their life. Is this a different business model? Yes. Is it for real? Yes. Is it for real people? Yes. Do you have to work hard? Yes, but you do it on YOUR terms. This is a business that can offer freedom if you are willing to go for it. Thanks for posting Alex.
Hey Alena, so glad to hear that you too are enjoying the business and community in Prosperity Of Life.
I love this part you said: “…you do it on YOUR terms. This is a business that can offer freedom if you are willing to go for it.”
I think that part pretty much sums it up 🙂
Thanks for commenting!
Thanks Alex. I wish I had seen something similar when I got started.
To be frank, it would not have made a difference. I was scared and skeptical after reading the negative comments online and I know so many others did too but I still moved ahead because my desire to change my situation was bigger than excuses offered by strangers.
The system, course and business works. The only problem is, we are afraid of failing and don’t believe in ourselves. This business requires willingness to learn and change, developing work ethic, strong desire to make a difference to your life and others like yourself.
Hey Biju, I really love your comment! It shows that the people who are serious about changing their lives won’t allow anything to stop them.
This is so important when you go into business for yourself, no matter what business, because there will always be people that will criticise you and not support your dreams. To succeed, one must listen to their own intuition regardless of other people’s opinions.
And you’re so right with saying that it’s fear of failure and not believing in oneself that holds some people back from creating the success they want. And that’s exactly why the products we have here work… because they allow you to develop yourself into the entrepreneur that can create whatever you want in your life.
Thanks for your comment 🙂
Thanks Alex, amazing and informative review. I just got started from the ground level two days ago because I want to make a better, more positive way of life for myself and my family. I was looking for something I could really believe in and yes I am still a bit nervous about it all but I’m going to do this! Reading your review was awesome help and made things a lot clearer.
Hey Andria, awesome decision. Congratulations!!
Being a bit nervous is perfectly normal when going into a new venture. But the fact that you’ve taken this step is proof that you have what it takes to create the success you’re after.
Thanks for your comment and happy to hear that my review helped you make the right decision for yourself 🙂
so how did it go?
curious to know before I jump in. Thanks for your time
So, if one is a newbie wanting to get started in this business you’d need to fork out up to almost $7K US (M1+M7) before you even get a single client of your own. Is that correct?
Hi Jeff, you are 100% correct. Or the M1 is $2285 USD.
But to be honest, and respectfully, with a perspective like that, this business probably isn’t for you.
If you bought a solid franchise, you’d be paying hundreds of thousand BEFORE you even made ONE sale. And that first 1 sale, would probably only make you $20 profit.
If you are not looking for a high value, high profit business, you might want to consider an MLM company or something.
You shot him down pretty quickly. Maybe this isn’t for you thing is wrong , I think it was a genuine question and if I was going to invest that money and more and not get any investment back for 7 months or at all while still paying for coaching from your mentor and the like. You would have to make a judgement call ….. To many negatives from your part , just tell the truth . Money is only earn by the big players like yourself and you can only achieve that by ringing in the newbies to sell your product to . I wish you and your team all the best and hope at least you can sleep at night while the newbies find out it’s too late to op out.
Hi Doug, thanks for your comment. My intention wasn’t to shoot Jeff down. Most people that understand what a business is (eg. that it takes an investment, whether it’s online or offline) don’t have a “I have to fork out money” mentality. That mentality is one of a consumer, not a serious investor.
And you’re absolutely right… If I speak to someone and they feel uncomfortable because they “might not see a return right away”, I’ll politely let them know that this business is probably not for them. I would rather work with someone who’s COMMITTED and willing to do WHATEVER IT TAKES to succeed, however long it takes for them, than someone doubting the business or their abilities.
As for your final comment, don’t forget that ALL the big players were once newbies too. We weren’t born out of our mothers wombs already big players. And just like that, ANYONE can be a big player if they so choose. And that is the REAL TRUTH.
how long did it take you to start making serious cash
Hi Steve, it took me 7 months before I started making a consistent income. But take into consideration that I messed around a lot at the beginning and didn’t take my business seriously until about 6 months in.
In saying that, it’s different for everyone and it will be determined by your level of work ethic and consistency.
When you say consitent what do you mean?Is this based on your expectation or overall? Id been keen to understand what is considered reasinable amount to make to begin with. Thanks
Hi Odette, by being consistent I mean being committed to learning, growing and taking action every single day over a long period of time.
When you go to a job every single day for 12 months, isn’t that being consistent?
It’s the same thing with a business of your own. If you’re going to give it a “try” for 3 months, then this business isn’t for you. But if you’re committed to making it happen, and work UNTIL you succeed, then you certainly can create the success you desire.
Unfortunately, I can’t give estimates on how much you will make, as it’s different for everyone. Some people won’t take ANY action and therefore make nothing. Other people will take MASSIVE ACTION and create financial results within a few weeks.
Hope that helps.
Hi Alex. So are you admitting here that you actually weren’t one of the serious investors yourself to start with? Messing around and not taking the business seriously for the first 6 months. Lucky you were able to change things around. What was it that finally created that change in you to finally put in the effort?
Yes and no. I did consider myself a serious investor. What I didn’t have was a solid work ethic.
I still took action during those 6 months, but it was very minimal. I procrastinated a lot and spent too much time working on things that didn’t help me create a result. Basically, not following what the company taught.
At that pace, it took me 6 months to make my first sale.
What finally helped me create that change was three things:
1) Doing the Personal Development course “Beyond Freedom Evolution” <== This was the BIGGEST one! It helped me build the mentality of a true entrepreneur, get clear on what I wanted in my future, and realise the pain of NOT taking action toward my dreams. It basically helped me get out of my own way.
2) Jumping on the training calls – Listening to top leaders train and talk about the importance of taking action in your business and putting one foot in front of the other; that helped me learn the importance of taking massive action. Plus hearing the results OTHERS were getting was inspiring and motivating.
3) When that first sale came through… that was the tipping point for me. 6 months worth of working on MYSELF and learning the business combined with a monetary result… that really shifted things for me. But it was a combination of all those things, not just the sale.
Now, a little disclaimer. My experience doesn't mean it will be the experience of everyone else.
I've seen plenty of people come here and within weeks they get qualified and into profit.
On the other side of the coin, I've seen people come here and never make any money, hoping the money would roll in without them doing anything.
You results will depend on your level of work ethic. If you take solid, consistent action right out of the gate, anything is possible 🙂
Hope this helps!
Am very curious about its outcome and the effort required.This is a very insightful review…now its taking the next step…Thanks
Hi Odette, what outcome are you specifically referring to?
In terms of effort, a good amount of time to work your Prosperity Of Life business is 10-15 hours per week minimum. Of course, you will also have training to go through and it’s up to YOU how fast you implement what you learn.
Hi Alex, I have recently enquired about this opportunity as am desperate to make life changes. How, without having any surplus in the coffers, does one go about getting started ?
Hi Jodi, your best bet would be to get back to the person you’ve already spoken with re: this. Also, they’ll be able to guide you through the getting started process.
Hello Alex, great job on the review. I’ve been approached to join POL but after reading your review I am intrigued by the “more affordable” option you’ve mentioned and am hoping you could share more with me.
Hi Dilesh, thanks for your comment.
Sure. I’ve sent you an email to start a conversation and share more.
Hi Alex, thanks so much for this review and helpful comments. I too am very interested in finding out more affordable options before I make a decision. I have run my own website since 2004 but it’s poverty, I work hard as a woodworker and only make around 35k per year. Am looking for something like this POL and excited to learn more from a man like you as I’m on a limited budget and don’t want to regret my decision. Any advice or direction would be appreciated thanks mate.
Hi Andrew, you’re welcome! Sorry to hear about the website. But glad you’ve got in touch as I have something that can help.
I’ve emailed you with more info. Talk soon.
Thank you for sharing this detailed review online! I am so glad I found it. Once question I have and am confused about is how much (in a range $$) would be the initial expenditure for someone who wants to do it. I’m certainly keen on putting in the work and like your analogy of consistency like with a regular job I understand being consistent is key. But to do that I understand you need to pay-to-play first? Is that right? I guess that’s the part that might take me out as I’m not really carrying a whole lot of disposable $$ at the moment. But I’m really honestly ready and willing to make big changes in my situation. I no longer want to work the traditional wage-slave system to make a living-income that is why I’m seeking other opportunities like POL.
Hi Yajeeca, thanks for your comment. Firstly, I’d recommend to get back to the person you initially spoke with. They’ll be able to answer your questions thoroughly over the phone and help you decide if POL is a fit for you or not.
Secondly, there’s two entry level products – M1 and M7 Fast Track (see info in my post or watch the POL overview video again). Which product you get started with depends on your income goals and how serious you are about starting your own business.
You’ll also want to take into consideration advertising expenses. This is a serious business, and like any business – online or traditional – the fastest way to scale your business is through paid ads (ask any 6-figure+ online marketer and they’ll tell you the same). Free methods also work but can be time consuming and takes longer to get results.
Just a question. I am a stay at home Mum. Never worked before in my life. I really want to put 100% into this. If I do put 100% into this, will I make money 100%? I’m just worried there won’t be people willing to buy the products no matter how hard I try
Hi Michelle, thanks for your comment. Firstly, I can’t tell you that you WILL make money. Legally, NO business opportunity can guarantee that – either online or offline. And the reason for that is that no one can guarantee a business owner’s level of work ethic and commitment. In fact, legally I have to tell you that there’s the possibility you might not make money.
However, I can certainly tell you that many stay at home mums have created success for themselves in Prosperity Of Life, even ones that didn’t know how to turn on a computer when they got started. So there’s certainly the possibility you can as well, if you’re 100% committed.
Just know that with ANY business there’s a level of risk, and this business isn’t any different. If you’re ok with taking risks (which is an entrepreneurial trait), by all means, go for it. You’ll never know unless you jump right in and give it your all. And if you’re not comfortable with taking risks, maybe ask yourself if an entrepreneurial venture is what you really want?
Sorry I can’t give you a definite answer, but I hope this helps you make the right decision for yourself.
I’m in the initial process of reviewing the business suitability.
How can I meet someone independent who is making the $50k per month to help validate my interest and commitment.
Hi Leo, unfortunately, no existing associate (that I know of anyways) will meet a prospective associate in person.
I can only speak for myself, that when I’ve done this in the past I found it to be a great waste of time going out to meet people that were never truly serious; they didn’t get started and I never heard back from them.
So now I only build my business 100% online; because if someone is truly serious, they’ll validate their own interest and get started. And if they’re not serious, they don’t waste their time and I don’t waste mine.
I’m sure other existing associates would feel the same way, as I’m sure you would if you were successful and didn’t need to meet people in person in order to grow your business.
In saying that, do get back to the person you originally spoke with and they will connect you on the phone with a 3rd party leader in the company to answer your questions – someone who won’t benefit from your transaction, if you choose to get started.
Good thread here. I wanted to get a rough idea of the optimal paid ad cost per month. That way, I can hv all of the monthly costs in front of me. Appreciate it. Kal
Hi Kal, thanks for your comment. It really depends on YOUR budget. The company provides training on free methods, but usually they’re more time consuming versus paid advertising. Free methods are great if you don’t have ANY ad spend budget and you have a lot of spare time (eg. a few hours per day). As for paid methods, they give you LEVERAGE; meaning you can make more money in less time (eg. 30-90 minutes per day).
A good beginner benchmark for paid ads is $200-$500 per month. And once you start making a profit, you can reinvest a percentage (eg. 20-30%) back into advertising so you can scale your business indefinitely.
I hope this helps, Kal. Have a happy new year 🙂
Alex that is a very detailed and honest review. I am certainly giving this opportunity great consideration and your truthful assessment is certainly something I can refer back to. Thank you
You’re welcome Eva-Marie! I’m glad this review has helped you out.
All the best 🙂
I’ve just signed up
For M1 let’s see how that works out
Awesome, and congrats on the decision Stephen!
Be sure to follow the training provided, follow your mentor’s lead, and be sure to ask them any questions you have as they’re 100% there to support you.
How are you getting on Stephen?
I dont know how by selling personal development courses one can make 100k its ridiculous and sounds bogus..there are so many personal development courses available for free on youtube and other websites.
The author seems to be a person from prosperity of life too, so its a conflict of interest review from him.
i dont believe this
No worries Jvalin. No need to understand it. The point is that there are people making that much. Does it mean that everyone will? Not necessarily, as not everyone is willing to put in the work it takes to achieve those levels.
And you’re right, there’s a lot of free stuff out there on ANY topic. But real quality, structured courses that actually helps people get results are usually paid. Just look at Tony Robbins – his courses and live events can cost up to $20,000 USD per person.
And you’re right, I’m with Prosperity Of Life – 100%! And I love it here.
You have the right not to believe this. Some people will, some people won’t…
And we’re looking for the people who DO and want to change their financial future… Just like I did when I first got started here.
All the best, and thanks for your comment.
Hi Alex, I was wondering if you could answer a hypothetical question for me please.
How much money would I need to invest before I start making decent returns?
If I went ahead with the M1 ($2285) and 3 months worth of subscription ($459), that’s $2744, so far. If I wanted to use paid leads, for the first 3 months, what in your estimation would be required in $$$ value ?
Let’s work off the premise that I wanted to make $50K profit in the first 3 months, which judging by the videos should be achievable, how much investment would be required?
Brandon, I’d love to help you with this, but this is a complex question as it’s different for everyone.
My recommendation is to get back to the person you originally spoke with and they’ll be able to connect you with a leader/coach in the company to run through the numbers with you, depending on your specific circumstances.
Thanks for the blog,Have Watched Shane, and love that part where he says, if its to hard to sell you are selling to the wrong person, love that, life should be easy, and can be , now im retraining my brain with P O L , am just starting and looking forward to the journey, love the KISS theory, keep it simple, and thats what Shane does.
Hey Alan, spot on! Simplicity is key if one wants to be successful. And love the K.I.S.S. principle too!
Thanks for commenting and wish you a ton of success 🙂
I am wanting to invest in this opportunity with $5000 nzd to my name is this possible?
Hi Robyn, yes, it’s definitely possible at the M1 level.
Thanks for your comment.
Just wondering if we have to pay tax on the profit we receive
Hi John, typically, yes. However, as a business owner, that would be your responsibility to take care of.
My suggestion would be to contact an accountant to give you the best advice and direction around this matter, as it also varies depending on what country you live in.
Thanks Alex for such great content and valuable info. Can I just check….are Prosperity of Life, Born To Prosper and Polaris Global all the same company?
Hi Bridget, you’re welcome! Yes and no. Prosperity Of Life & Polaris Global are sister companies…
Prosperity Of Life is the main public brand of the business. But more importantly, it’s the company that owns the intellectual property (ie. courses, events, content, etc).
Polaris Global is the company takes care of customer service, support, training and tools.
Born To Prosper is Shane & Rachel Krider’s personal brand, blog and podcast. Because they’re owners of the company, they tie all their content from Born To Prosper into Prosperity Of Life, making it a great way to add value and build relationships with those who are in the company but also those who are looking to get started in the business.
Hope that helps 🙂
Thank you Alex for this awesome review. I am also a proud member of prosperity of life. Joined in recently and already achieving more than I have ever done. it is sad to see some people have posted that this program is a scam and yet they are not even part of it, so thank you again for doing this. Keep up the good work and I can’t wait to achieve the level of accomplishments you have. Here to prosperity of life giving us all a chance to make things better. I believe the ones that are serious and want a change in their lives they will find the truth about this amazing opportunity.
Hi El, thanks for your comment. Appreciate it! And glad to hear you got started in Prosperity Of Life and are loving it.
And you’re absolutely right… Prosperity Of Life isn’t for everyone. But those that it is a fit for, they will see the opportunity for what it is – just like I did, like you did, and like plenty of others do when they get started.
I wish you plenty of success!
thanks for the review.I am seriously looking at coming on board,but feel my level of english and communication with people is very low.
Would that be a problem?(I’m not one for writing pages of material)
Hi Geoff, that really depends on YOU.
In Prosperity Of Life, you won’t be writing pages of material (like this blog post). However, you will learn to write simple advertisements to generate leads and enquiries. A pre-written script is also provided for calling prospects on the phone.
It is a pretty simple business and there’s plenty of associates whose second language is english. But you’d have to make the decision for yourself.
Thanks for your question.
I have been in contact with a lovely lady after I enquired a ad on FB. I have watched the 5 clips that were sent to me.
I am really keen and interested and expecting a call back from the lady tomorrow. I read all the internet reviews on the scam cases involving Shane and previous company. I guess most companies have falling out with partners and things get messy in the media and online. So I am glad I came past this review of yours. I am a big believer in making things happen and going for it even when things look grim so I’m really keen to do this. 27 years of working full time and two chicks ten I have bearly spent time with it’s time to change and look upwards not just straight ahead. Thanks again
That’s so true! And I’m glad my review was able to help you make the right decision for yourself.
Thanks for your comment!
Hi Tina how did you go. I am really keen to start up also. Just interested to know how you are going with it.
When i first came across POL i was hooked! I signed up in an instant. Once i was enrolled it took me less than a week to get off the ground and running. I am now in my third week of training, I have had some scary emails come through to me about the company and to be honest it has tightened my belt and made me quite worried. I saw this review before i finalised my sign up. So naturally i went for it. I have not had any issues with getting in contact with my trainer or responses for the team. but as you can understand i am sure. when i read reviews that were made this year(even last week) i get nervous! Now i have completed the 17 day prosperity system training and got a lot out of it. Yet my stomach is twisting in a knot. So i decided to leave you a comment here and see how quickly YOU respond as a test of my faith i guess. if you could reach out to me I would not only appreciate it but it would stop the winding ball in my mind. Thanks again and i look forward to the day I can stand next to you in a conference. Have a Wonderfull month of May 2018!!
Thanks for your comment. This is something I’d be more than happy to answer for you.
Firstly, welcome aboard! The great thing is that you now have first hand experience of what we actually do in Prosperity Of Life, not just the subjective views of outsiders.
Secondly, with anything that starts to get very successful, and in public view, there will be haters and skeptics. It’s inevitable.
Not to get religious on you, but Jesus had a ton of haters that saw him as a hypocrite – yet he changed the world. Also, when the world was originally discovered to be round, most of the world was skeptic. And what about the Wright Brothers? 95% of the world criticised them saying that building a flying machine is impossible.
And naturally, there’s going to be haters for what we do here. Even top industry leaders in online marketing, like Russell Brunson (probably the biggest marketer in the world), has bad reviews, etc. Did you know that Mother Teresa has skeptics, even until today? Just Google “Mother Theresa Scam”. It’s very unfortunate.
Truthfully, at one point, the negative reviews affected me too (and my business), but then I realised they’re a natural part of life, because everyone has different perspectives and opinions based on their own past experiences, or what they don’t understand.
Today, I don’t read those reviews at all. If you feed your mind with negativity, you’ll feel negative feelings. So I’d rather just know WHY I’m building my business, be passionate about helping my team succeed, be around this community that empower and lifts people up (which you’ve already experienced yourself), and let the naysayers hang out with the naysayers.
Thirdly, the people behind a lot of reviews have one purpose in mind… To talk negative about another company, and then funnel people into “their opportunity”.
Then there’s the other reason why negative reviews can appear… Because of the low cost entry of the business (compared to traditional or franchise businesses), almost everyone can afford to get started, including people that wouldn’t ever consider spending $200,000+ on a Subway franchise (as an example).
Because of this, people with a low work ethic can easily get started and not do the required work, expecting that it’s some kind of “push a button and make a million” type of business.
And if someone is not committed to developing their skillset and putting in the required work, they’re not going to get the results they want. And when they feel burned out because “the business” didn’t make them money, instead of THEM making the business work, they can leave and tell everyone that the business didn’t work or call it whatever negative names they want.
Now of course, that’s why there’s an interview process… to find the right people for the business as much as possible, because we’re offering an opportunity, not a consumable product.
And finally, your goal is to just keep generating leads and interviewing people to see who’s a fit for what we do, or isn’t, and know that there will be No’s, but within those No’s there will be Yes’s, and those Yes’s are what makes this business worth it. A book I’d recommend to get is “Go For No: For Network Marketers”
End of the day, the people you speak with will either be looking for REASONS for why this business WON’T work (this is the people that will buy into the bad reviews), or they’ll be looking for reasons as to why it WILL work (this is the people who get started; just like you, myself, and everyone else in Prosperity Of Life).
I hope this gives you some perspective, Sai!
My biggest advice – Keep going! And keep going through the products and plugging into the community… Because when you surround yourself with empowering people, you yourself will become empowered, and it will help you in succeeding with your business!
Also, do what you can to fall in love with our industry of Network Marketing. Many people criticise it because they don’t understand it; but if you do your research, you’ll realise that Network Marketing is a healthy, growing industry that’s helping hundreds of thousands of people create amazing lives (A great book is “The Business Of The 21st Century” by Robert Kiyosaki).
All the best, and I look forward to seeing you at an event some time too 🙂
Hi there I have just finished watching the video clips and have had my phone call follow up. The biggest thing now is to get the money together to purchase the M1. I will start at that level only because of the money factor. I am very excited to start and also slightly nervous. Your review helped and what I like is that it is still relevant date wise. I am not reading feedback and your replies from years ago but days ago. I am looking forward to making money to make my life and those around more settled and to have an amazing adventure with this business as well. If there is any advice you have I would most welcome it. Thank you
The feeling of excitement and nervousness is normal when venturing into something new. I felt exactly the same way when I got started back in 2011.
As for advice… Go ALL IN, in terms of your commitment. A new business is an exciting thing, but it’s also a new responsibility.
You don’t go into a marriage saying to yourself: “I’ll give it 6 months and see how it goes.”
Instead, you go into a marriage with the attitude of: “I’m going to MAKE IT WORK!”
If you go in with that same level of commitment, and focus on developing YOURSELF and your SKILLSET, and TAKE ACTION, you can create all that you want here…
But it’s up to YOU!
Thanks for your comment, and I’m glad that my review was of help to you 🙂
is it open for expats too?
are you open for asian countries like indonesia, india , malaysia too.
Hi Sumati, yes it is.
Prosperity Of Life can be build from most countries around the world, with a small number of countries being an exception.
If you’ve already spoken to someone about the business, I’d recommend to get back to them so they can look more into your specific situation and find out from Prosperity Of Life corporate that everything will be good to go for you, if you decide to get started.
I hope that helps!
Alex I truly appreciate your candor. I have been met with the decision of weather to move forward with prosperity of life or not. I do have some questions if you could email me that would be helpful. I appreciate your time and information. You have been invaluable. Be Blessed
Hi Dorothy, thanks for your comment.
Unfortunately, due to the system we have in place, I must refer you back to the original person you spoke with in Prosperity Of Life.
They’ll be able to connect you with another leader in the company to get all your questions answered.
Great Review Alex thanks.
I have already poured hours into this business without even having signed up yet. My mind is a whirlwind of optimism, excitement, nerves – dreams, thoughts and the good old fear of the unknown… Go Figure!
In any event – my gut tells me to go for it. I’ve also read all the negative garb as you do on any product review be it through Amazon or Ebay or any business for that matter. It is what it is, until it is not, and that’s each individuals decision at the end of the day.
Just about to make that call to my guy whose advert I answered 🙂
M7 Fast Track here I come. Oh and for those also reading these reviews like so many of us..
“If you think you can or if you think you can’t – You are right!”
Wow, best comment ever, Debbie! Exciting that you’re getting started 🙂
It’s awesome that you came here to share your decision just before moving forwards. Love it!
And you’re totally right – I love that quote by Henry Ford.
Well, all the best and I look forward to seeing your success with Prosperity Of Life.
I read your review before I decided to join Prosperity of Life and I am very glad I did. It is only a few months ago but I have banked over 7000 USD in the last month. In addition I am loving the products and the people I am interacting with. Without your article I may have been swayed by the negatives out there who are actually trying to sell their own stuff and have never been part of PoL or they never applied themselves. Thanks again.
Hey Peter, that is awesome! Best comment yet 🙂
Thanks for sharing your experience and results. I think that will help a lot of people to make the right decision for themselves too.
And glad to hear that this review helped you in making your decision.
All the best, and look forward to meeting you sometime soon.
I am interested in this opportunity however I am a single mom with not much income coming in.
Would this be something I could realistically do or would I have to have all the funds up front ?
Hi Hahnah, it really depends.
My suggestion is to get back to the person you originally spoke with, as they’ll be able to answer your question over the phone and give you options.
Sorry I couldn’t be of much here. This is a question best answered 1:1.
I have seriously been considering this opportunity and reading your review has been incredibly helpful in answering questions for me. I think one of the biggest questions I have is about the ‘product’ itself. Is the product really just the 17 day transformation and videos of live events? It feels like most of the marketing is about getting people to become distributors, so I am trying to understand if there are many sales of the actual product in there. Or is the model to have the distributors buying the products?
I ask these questions because it’s important to me to be able to assist others to grow which is why I love personal development.
Based on responses to other questions, you will probably refer me back to the person I initially spoke to which brings me to my second question…she seemed way too busy to speak to me, so it made me wonder as you scale up and build your team, do you need to be on all their phone calls as well, or is it just a first few levels?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Donna, great questions!
1) There are more products than just the 17 Day Program and live events recordings. The company’s flagship product is the 12 Month Master Of Destinies program (aka Beyond Freedom Evolution). I’d recommend to watch the information again to get a better understanding of the products.
2) The company trains on both: A. building a network of people that also buy the product themselves B. promoting the products retail (without the opportunity component).
Personally, I only do the network/team building side as there’s more leverage in the income you can make and I enjoy working with and mentoring people.
3) Sorry to hear about your experience. Keep in mind that every associate is different – some are more busy, some are less busy. And we also don’t know what else they have going on in their lives.
But to answer your question, your mentor would help you with answering questions for YOUR prospects (the 3 way call). Eventually, you will learn and feel comfortable doing it yourself. At that point you won’t need your associate’s help for this – and you’d be able to help YOUR team.
So yes, just the first few levels.
I hope that helps!
If you want more clarity, please get back to the person you originally spoke with.
Really glad to have found your info after all the “hater” reviews!
I have Just completed the 6 videos sent after ansering an ad- I am excited but skeptical. Have had a corporate world career, started 2 businesses and tried an MLM… wanting to early retire and have a business that is
Mobile (AND global). This could be it!
One question- can you start by selling retail and achieve M1 via that avenue or is that only possible by purchasing the 17 day program?
Thanks a lot!
Hi Deb, my recommendation is always to purchase the M1 or M7 Fast Track first.
Well, it’s not because of the money I (or a distributor) will make, but because it’s hard to promote something you haven’t experience yourself. By purchasing it first, you’ll experience wins in your life, you’ll become a product of the product, and that will translate into confidence and certainty about what you’re offering to others.
Every now and then, I have new associates who’ll buy the product and don’t dive into it for a few weeks, and it’s not until they actually start using the product that their energy shifts and their confidence goes through the roof because they now truly understand how we actually help people. And that confidence and excitement is what translates into them creating results.
So by purchasing the M1 or M7 Fast Track, you’re setting yourself up for success.
In saying that, there is a way you don’t have to purchase the product initially, but you’ll have to get back to the person you originally spoke with so they can clearly outline how it works.
I hope that helps.
I thought that you could start by making 1 retail sale and 2 up sales which would qualify you for the M1 without making a product purchase, aside from the monthly $153 for website, back office, etc. Is this NOT the case? I understand the option to earn faster is by purchasing the M1 and M7 yourself and getting 2 up sells, but is that REQUIRED or can I let the business work for me as I will work to make it work by getting leads and making sales.
Good question, Michelle.
That is correct. However, a few things come into play here:
1) It’s hard trying to feel confident promoting a product you haven’t used yourself.
Sure, you won’t be explaining the product. But people can FEEL how certain or uncertain you feel about what you’re offering.
And why would anyone want to buy something from you if YOU haven’t purchased it yourself?
2) The question also comes down to the person you originally spoke with.
For example, I only work with people who are willing to invest in themselves and make a product purchase.
A. Because I know they’re setting themselves up for success and it shows their commitment.
B. I’m also building MY business and I believe in getting paid for the value and mentorship I provide to others.
My recommendation is to get back in touch with the person you originally spoke with and ask them what options you have.
Hi Alex, am purchasing next week, Thanks, Warm Regards Alan Rennie
Awesome stuff. And great decision!
Are you coming to the training event in Melbourne this weekend? If so, see you there 🙂
thanks for writing this, I have already made contact with someone and they’ve lead me to the 6 videos and then more research lead me to your page.
Like you and everyone else I to have my own story of struggles, I am currently studying to try better my circumstances for my wife and two children…
Now im sure you can tell by the fact I have written this, shows you that I am interested, merely because im sick of struggling and would like a bit of comfort and possibly make someone else’s life better
the problem is; in order to start a business you need money, I currently cannot afford a loaf of bread, yet alone pay a monthly subscription or even the material (M1, M7 and so forth) to become qualified. I have to rely on family to get me by, purely because I do not possess the skills required to enter the job market at a level that would meet my needs for a minimum requirement of living.
So my question to is, how does someone like me who currently is scraping by and cannot afford the basic needs (without the help of others) for household day to day items, to get this material so that I may potentially become a success like yourself?
Thanks for your comment. And great question!
As you mentioned yourself, in order to start a business (any type of business) you need capital.
Even if you’re starting a traditional business from scratch, you’ll need capital for tools, wholesale products, raw material, marketing, etc.
Because business has on-going expenses, especially until you’re in a profit making position, my recommendation would be to wait.
Sure, maybe you don’t have skills required to enter the job market like you mentioned. But you gotta do what you gotta do.
And if you enter a business without any working capital, it won’t be sustainable.
I’ve seen people get jobs stacking shelves at their local supermarket, get the money to get started, and continue working at the supermarket to have a stream of cash to invest into their marketing…UNTIL their online business is profitable.
That’s just one idea of what you could do. Get creative to find more.
Personally, if someone I speak to about the business doesn’t have a job, I recommend for them to NOT get started until they’ve got one. That’s just a part of me wanting to SERVE people, not just “make a sale” – which would be good for me, but not for them.
Hope that helps!
Hi Alex, Just wanted to say thanks for the great review. I signed up for M7 fast track a week ago and having started the 17day personal prosperity system as well as all the super online marketing training, am well on my way already. It really is a business in a box. Cheers and see you at a live event during 2019!!
Awesome Bronwyn! Congrats on the decision to move forward. Glad to hear you’re loving it 🙂
All the best!
Well thought out and presented review.. I’m looking at this business as a part of my slow down plan but still going the due diligence any business venture deserves.
I have question that I will raise with my initial contact for this business but would you mind advising on your knowledge of the international aspect? I raise the question as during the video presentations, I picked up on the excitement vibe for opening Thailand and wonder what countries are already “open”? There was mention to legal so I am assuming each country needs to be satisfied by the corporate body in some way?
Its not over clear but Australia & Canada seem to be fully operational soon to be followed by Thailand. … no mention of central and south America, USA Europe generally, the UK & Ireland, Africa, Middle east or the rest of Asia outside of Thailand.
I’m not one to assume anything but would I be correct in saying that anyone joining this business have world wide rights (no regional restriction) subject to response on my question around permissible countries?
Many thanks in advance for you response
Hi Alan, great question.
As far as I understand, Prosperity Of Life is a global business minus a few countries here and there.
That’s all I can say, as I feel this is more a question to ask the corporate office. I don’t want to give you any incorrect information.
Please get back to the person you original spoke with. You can also email corporate directly from the official Prosperity Of Life website.
I have been successfully running a Prosperity Of Life business for more than 3 years. I don’t think we have met before. I am very impressed by your integrity. Even though you are no longer with POL you have in no way attempted to dirty the reputation of the company with the intention of herding people into your new venture.
To me you are a shining example of the type of person that Prosperity Of Life typically attracts into its community.
I back up your opinion on the quality of the personal development courses and the step by step support provided to business associates by the company, its ongoing training and leadership.
I congratulate you on your personal integrity and wish you all the very best in your new venture.
Hi Rae, thanks so much for this! I really appreciate it, it means a lot.
And no, we’ve never met. But I do know of you and I can vouch for you… you’re a great leader! 🙂
Is this product available independent of the business? If so where?
Hi Dave, yes you can purchase the product individually, but you’ll still want to contact the person you originally spoke with as it must be purchased through a distributor.
I’d like to thank you for your detailed and sincere review.
I am currently considering POL as I need to take my income earning potential into my own hands. Their training and support are a big part of my decision as I have no history in marketing but am willing to learn.
You are truly inspirational!
Wishing you all the best in your new venture.
Hi Melinda, glad to hear you liked the review.
Thanks for the best wishes… and wish you all the best with Prosperity Of Life too!
So appreciate this review and the valuable information provided as well as the comments. I have been approached and am contemplating my decision and found this to be very useful. I have a small online venture of my own that I am trying to move forward as well. So I really am exploring all options. I would be interested in also receiving information on the alternative that was discussed in comments if you would be willing to share.
Hi Jacquie, thanks for your comment! And sure, I can help you with both.
I’ve just sent you an email. Talk to you soon
Brilliant review thank you Alex
You’re welcome Diane!
I HAVE to start this business! I don’t think its even an option for me anymore it IS the way forward! Thanks again Alex have an awesome day
Can I do my 2 pass up sales of M1 and then become a qualified director, make additional sales and get the profit from them and then buy the product for myself?
Great question Erick. And sorta. It’s more like this…
1) Make a retail sale to someone else who just buys the M1 but doesn’t join the business. They’ll pay 20% extra retail margin ($2855 total).
2) Once you’ve made a retail sale, THEN you can do the next 2 pass up sales of M1’s to become an M1 director.
But really, what’s the point. It’s hard to sell or promote something you’ve never experienced yourself. You won’t have the confidence you need to make a sale. But this is just my opinion… I know I wouldn’t have been able to make sales if I never bought (and used) the product.
And today that I promote various things, I NEVER promote anything I personally haven’t bought and experienced myself.
If you want more clarity, best bet is to speak to the person you originally got in contact with. They’ll be able to explain your options.
Thank you for your great review. I’m doing a lot of research on Prosperity for Life as I’m looking to join.
Did you find it easy/difficult to change your mindset to start working from home and also working the course?
How many hours did you put in a day?
What was your advertising budget in the first 3 months?
How many sales did you make in your first few months?
Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you,
Hi Gemma, here’s the answers:
Did you find it easy/difficult to change your mindset to start working from home and also working the course? How many hours did you put in a day?
The first few months I procrastinated big time. But once I started doing personal development, I start learning why I was holding myself back and was able to change that. It just took a DECISION to work on myself.
I recommend 2-3 hours per day initially.
What was your advertising budget in the first 3 months?
Because I started my business in 2011, what I spent is not comparable to today.
I’d recommend $200 to $300 per month starting initially, at least until you’re profitable in your business and can reinvest a potion of your profits back into advertising. I recommend starting with ONE free marketing strategy and ONE paid.
How many sales did you make in your first few months?
It took me 6 months to make my first sale. But that’s because I procrastinated a lot, like I already mentioned.
Some people take less time to start making sales, some take longer, while others never make any money at all because they do nothing at all.
I hope that helps!
Great review. I’m looking at joining Prosperity of Life. I don’t have the capital at all but I can raise it. I’m a very hard worker and believe I can make this work beyond what I can imagine. I don’t want to invest capital that I’ll never get back (too many scams and too many companies promising high returns). I do understand that my earning potential depends on what I’m willing to sacrifice and how hard I work.
Do you recommend this for me or do you have something else I can do that requires little capital? I’m willing to do the work but the capital is the problem.
Thanks for your comment.
Firstly, as with any business there is risk involved. Legally, no business or investment vehicle can guarantee returns.
It’s great you understand that results are based on a person’s work ethic though!
If you’re looking for an alternative, happy to share with you my #1 recommendation. (It’s a more cost effective option to get started.)
Feel free to reach out on Messenger if you’d like to know more:
Otherwise, all the best!
I have read all the comments and like everyone else, I’m so happy to have found you. You are doing a great service with such integrity and love. Your article gave me the final little nudge I was praying for.
All the best for you and your family,
Hi Laura, thanks for your comment.
Glad my review was able to help 🙂
All the best with your new business!
Refreshing Alex to stumble across a nonbiased first hand account of your experience with POL! Well done and so thoroughly executed. I am impressed with your presentation skills and more importantly the authenticity you radiate. You cycled through the program while enjoying some notable success. Perhaps some of the principles of Personal Development have made you a better human being as well… which seems to be shining through. I have just recently committed to jumping into the POL opportunity myself. Hoping to take a slightly different approach w/o getting caught up in all the rah rah island fever hoopla. Wish me luck! Thanks again Alex!
Thank you Jay! Appreciate that 🙂
All the best with Prosperity Of Life!!
Alex, it’s really time you took this post down. I was will POL for 6 months and signed up 14 people. I stopped when I realised that very few of them were ever going to make it. The “product” is not worth the money, and at the end of the day, you are selling the right to recruit other people and everyone at the top feeds of their (ruined) expectations and money. If you follow the system to the letter and have a big enough bankroll you will make money but at what cost? I have followed you for a while and I am guessing you stopped for the same reason I did, i.e. you can make money but at the expense of others not by benefiting others. Take on board the thought that for every person that is swayed to join POL because of this post there will be more than 10 who are out of pocket a minimum of USD2285 each. Do you want that on your conscience or karma? I am glad you moved on but rather let all the other stuff out the stop people from wasting their money on POL. A good product or company benefits EVERYONE involved POL does not, you know it and I know it.
Hi Peter, thanks for your comment.
You know, I almost didn’t approve this comment, but then I realised others are probably having questions around this and would like answers.
1) Personally, I do believe the products in themselves are worth the money. If it weren’t for those products, particularly BFE/Master Of Destinies, I wouldn’t have changed my life. Now, that’s not saying there isn’t other products out there that can do the same and could probably be better.
2) To a certain degree, you are right when you said “you are selling the right to recruit other people.” Although, it’s still legally structured in a way that people are buying the PRODUCT, not a business. It’s a fine line though.
3) And you’re right. A lot of people won’t have success. But that’s because they won’t do anything at all. This goes for anything. How many people that buy a gym membership actually use it?
In fact, there’s a statistic that people that buy a course online, only about 10% of them will actually go through it. (Not sure where I heard that, but from my own courses’ statistics, it’s about right.)
4) It also comes down to if people are actually using the PRODUCT. I’ve seen a lot of people try to make the business work, but they never succeeded because they won’t working on their personal growth.
For me personally, it took me 6 months to make my first sale in POL – because I had a lot of work to do on myself. Can you imagine if I quit on month 5 believing that “the business doesn’t work”?
5) I quit for totally different reasons. Firstly, Prosperity Of Life does not encourage people to develop their online marketing skills outside the company or use different marketing processes (even if they’re much more effective and easier).
Second, as I did develop my skills outside POL, I realised that their training and processes are outdated. I no longer felt comfortable referring people to a business that’s behind with their marketing.
And it’s not that people can’t have success with it. It’s just a frustrating process to go through.
In saying that, I’m not out to bag them. Do I have more opinions about their business model? Sure. But I’m not here to be negative. There’s plenty of others doing that online already.
Plus, POL are still helping a lot of people, whether it’s making money, growing personally, or just giving people an empowering community to be in.
End of the day, I’m sorry POL wasn’t a fit for you. But I know plenty of others who, even though they haven’t made money, are still VERY happy being there. And I’m not going to try to take that away from them.
All the best with your new ventures!!
Thanks for your considered and eloquent response. There are indeed some fantastic people in POL and I guess the reason my team and I failed could be put down to lack of leadership on my part rather than the product or company.
That said, my team are all intelligent, capable people and they invested a huge amount of time and money without seeing a return. I think less should be said about the PD required and more about what it actually takes financially and practically to get this business going.
You are looking at USD150/month for your required business tools and a minimum of USD850 on advertising and that’s if you want to get the amount of quality leads you need to actually make sales. I know this for a fact because I made 14 sales in 9 months and I know precisely what I spent to get them.
There are too many people scraping their last pennies together in order to buy in and then not be able to afford the overheads to actually run the business. They are the ones getting hurt and feeding the system, not the 4% who have the cash flow from other sources to “fake it until they make it”.
With reference to my last statement I completely understand the business model and how buying in at the higher levels positions you better but I think the practice of shooting the “free” promotional six-pack of marketing materials when you buy an M8 Directorship for US28000 (and change) before you have sold a thing is completely deceptive and probably one of the reasons Facebook took such issue with the adverts showing people living the laptop lifestyle when the reality is they were actually on a very expensive holiday. There are a couple of exceptions but I don’t need two hands to count them.
Bottom line is you absolutely can make a fantastic income with POL with their current business model. My question is would that still be the case if people were fully informed before they bought-in? Let’s start with “We are looking for people who want to make a minimum of USD10000 per month within six months…” and instead of “and believe it is achievable for them” replace with “and after your initial minimum investment of USD2285 you will require a further USD1000/month and 80 hours of effort for six months until you can expect to start seeing a return on your investment”. What do you think that would do to the conversion rate?
You and I both made money with POL, quite a lot of it, but we are no longer doing it and there’s a reason. I personally know 14 people who probably wish they had never heard my name and that hurts although funnily enough not one of them had ever complained to me so maybe the “product” is worth the money after all.
This blog post is the very reason I ended up joining POL and for better or worse I am glad I did, I have met some amazing people through it and made some very good money but as you say it’s not a good fit for me.
I wish you all the very best as well.
Wow! Thanks a bunch for your honest and detailed review of POL.
Well done for the clarity in your response to questions.
Thanks and you’re welcome!
Hi, Alex. Thanks for your honesty and answering everyone’s questions, maintaining a great attitude toward and for POL. I have held myself back because of my own negativity and sincere doubt, caused by reading all the scam articles.
Your comment that the main product being sold is the personal development program and the effects it will have on the individual. Its not about the earnings, only after causing oneself to make the correct changes in their personal life first. Only then, can one progress on to marketing and selling these same products. Lead by example.
I haven’t begun yet, i need to overcome a barrier that is handicapping me. I have a hearing difficulty that some voices do not register correctly, but seem muffled and very indistinct. The wonderful lady has been a great mentor, but her soft Aussy accent is too hard for me to stay with our conversation. So far, hearing aids- very expensive ones- have not helped.
Is it possible to have a different mentor that I can hear well?
Hi Howard, you’re welcome. And thanks for your comment.
Re: your question. You’d be best contacting the corporate company to see if that’s something they can do.
I really appreciate your review as I have just come across this opportunity and feel in my gut it’s a good opportunity but wanted to get some other views.
Can I ask you if you are willing to share in an email, what you have moved on to and perhaps the other options you have mentioned in your posts as an alternative to POL?
I feel after reading your review that I am leaning towards POL but I always like to know what the experts see as other similar alternatives.
Thanks once again for your extensive information.
Hi Annie, you’re welcome! Glad you found the review helpful.
Re: your question… Sure, happy to share an alternative. I’ve just emailed you that information.
Thanks a bundle for your fair and definite review of POL.
You’re welcome Morgan!
Hi Alex, I have just been approached re POL by following a link on a FB Ad. I am so glad I saw your review and have read through all the conversations. I am interested in what you have moved to. Could you please let me know what that is. I am not sure that POL is where I want to go having ben in a few MLM’s that have since gone downhill.
Hi Anne, thanks for your comment. And I understand that.
If you’d like to chat, could you please message me at: https://facebook.com/alexfordlive
Hi – thanks for the review. I’m interested in your alternative as mentioned as well as what you are doing now? It sounds like a great opportunity!
Hi Handri, you’re welcome! I’ve just emailed you that information. Talk soon.
Hi Alex, thanks for the information, looking at the price from a South African rand perspective the POL is very expensive for our market, can you perhaps send me more information about your solution?
Hi Monica, thanks for your comment. I understand the rand perspective, especially coming from USD.
I’ve emailed you with more info about an alternative solution.
Great and comprehensive review Alex, very detailed
Thanks for sharing
You’re welcome, Halle! Thanks for stopping by.
Alex thank you so much, your review has given me food for thought…
I am keen on looking at your alternative opportunity…
Look forward to hearing from you asap.
Hi Jayme, you’re welcome. I’ve just emailed you with more info.
What a review. So refreshing and honest so thank you!!! I’m looking at many reviews for POL as I’m thinking or saving to start at the end of the month but I’m still just a bit worried about the high start up cost. I’m not afraid and will put in the work and I am interested in Personal Development but can you please provide me with further information for the business that you are now doing?
Hi Nicole, thanks for your comment. And you’re welcome!
I’ve just emailed you to start a conversation. Look forward to chatting.
Great review, very helpful indeed.
Wondering if I may be able to ask you a couple of questions via email.
Thanks Brad. I’m glad you found it helpful.
I’ve just emailed you to started a conversation.
Thanks for your honest review, it really helped cleared my understanding of the business.
The price point is the issue for me with POL.
I would be interested in learning more about your alternative.
You’re welcome, Susana! I understand that. I’ve emailed you with more information.
Alex, thanks for a very detailed and honest review – a rarity.
Seems that this is really just jumping from working in an office with one company, to working with another company from home.
Appreciate the honesty here that gives people an insight on what to expect.
You’re welcome, Grumpy! (Love the name btw 🙂
Thank you for the review, insightful and helpful
You’re welcome! And thanks for the comment.
Wow, I found this at just the right time! A very thorough review. My first red flag was the 3 Day “Mojo” course they offered to me for free. Shane was less than compelling in his presentation. Disjointed, unclear. He ended many sentences with the exclamation of “whatever”. That experience got me looking for more red flags and you turned out to be the big one.
You’re welcome Tim! Glad my review helped.
I will say though – giving away free courses, ebooks, training, etc is a standard practice online. It’s a great way to attract people, bring them into your circle, build a relationship, and then present your offerings.
Thanks for commenting.
