DeVos Family Seeks Deregulation Of Amway So It Can Beat Herbalife

According to an article in the New York Post:

Betsy DeVos’ well-connected family wants Amway to get a leg up on Herbalife — and it’s pushing Congress to make it happen.

The US education secretary’s Michigan-based family, which is the controlling shareholder of privately held Amway, is backing a little-noticed amendment to the US House spending bill that would limit regulatory oversight of so-called multilevel marketers, or MLMs.

Specifically, the rider would curb the ability of the Federal Trade Commission to investigate whether MLMs like Amway are pyramid schemes — potentially protecting Amway from costly regulations that have recently ensnared its archrival Herbalife.

“Of course, Amway is supportive” of the amendment,

said Joseph Mariano, president of the Direct Selling Association, which represents MLMs and counts Amway as its biggest member.

Meanwhile, Herbalife Senior Vice President Ed Rosen asked several US Congressmen in a July letter to tack added consumer protections to the bill — the kind that Herbalife will be forced to implement whether Amway’s bill passes or not.

Under a 2016 settlement with the FTC, Herbalife agreed to fully restructure its US business operations, and distinguish customers, who sign up to purchase products at a discount, from distributors, who resell the products to earn commissions.

“[The] compensation we pay is driven by validated, profitable retail sales,”

Rosen wrote to lawmakers.

Indeed, the rules are designed, among other things, to prevent MLMs from saddling distributors with more product — mostly nutritional supplements in the case of Amway and Herbalife — than they can sell at a profit — a classic scenario in pyramid selling.

“Herbalife expressed opposition and concern about this bill,” Mariano admitted. “I think given their experience and given the fact they are working under an order influences its view.” Mariano said.

The US Senate is set to vote soon on its 2018 spending bill, and in conference with the House will likely decide whether to keep the Amway-backed “Anti-Pyramid” amendment, sources said.

The amendment was introduced by US Rep. John Moolenaar (R-Mich.), who received $8,000 from Amway-related entities during the 2016 election cycle, public records show.

Amway, with an estimated $9 billion in yearly sales, “is still completely controlled by the DeVos family,” an industry source said, noting that Betsy DeVos’ husband Dick DeVos is a former Amway president and her brother-in-law, Doug DeVos, is Amway’s current president.

In financial disclosures submitted for her confirmation as education secretary, Betsy DeVos disclosed the family made more than $10 million in Amway-related dividends.

Young Living Essential Oils Sentenced For illegal Import

Young Living Essential Oils Sentenced For illegal Import

The Justice Department announced today that YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS, L.C., (the Company), headquartered in Lehi, Utah, pleaded guilty in federal court to federal misdemeanor charges regarding its illegal trafficking of rosewood oil and spikenard oil in violation of the Lacey Act and the Endangered Species Act.

The Company voluntarily disclosed its rosewood oil violations and has been cooperating with government investigators. Pursuant to the terms of the plea agreement, the Company was sentenced to a fine of $500,000, $135,000 in restitution, a community service payment of $125,000 for the conservation of protected species of plants used in essential oils, and a term of five years’ probation with special conditions.

The conditions include the implementation of a corporate compliance plan, audits, and the publication of statements regarding its convictions.

“The importation of illegally harvested wood and timber products harms law-abiding American companies and workers and threatens forest resources around the world,”

said Acting Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey H. Wood of the Environment and Natural Resources Division. “Our Division was proud to work alongside the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District of Utah, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Department of Homeland Security to bring this case to a positive conclusion.”

“While the natural resource violations by certain employees of Young Living were intentional and substantial, the Company’s decision to conduct an internal investigation, voluntarily disclose the initial violations to government enforcement authorities, and cooperate throughout the ensuing investigation is to be commended,” said U.S. Attorney John W. Huber for the District of Utah.

“This sentence reflects both the seriousness of the offenses and the acceptance of responsibility and cooperation by the Company.”

According to the plea agreement, from June 2010 to October 2014, several company employees and contractors harvested, transported, and distilled rosewood (Aniba roseaodora or Brazilian rosewood) in Peru and imported some of the resulting oil into the United States, through Ecuador. Peruvian law prohibits the unauthorized harvest and transport of timber, including rosewood.

Neither the Company nor its suppliers, employees, or agents had any valid authorization from the Peruvian government. Peru also prohibits the export of species protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), without the required permits. The Company did not obtain any CITES export permits from Peru.

Between 2010 and 2014, a few Company employees harvested, transported, and possessed a total of approximately 86 tons of rosewood, all of which was harvested in violation of Peruvian law.

The rosewood was intended for distillation and export to the United States and some had already been illegally brought over. The Company lacked an internal compliance program or formal procedures, training, or means to review and resolve problems and identify and stop potential violations. As a result, the Company hired outside counsel to conduct an internal investigation into the violations due to the illegal harvesting and shipping of plants that occurred in Peru and Ecuador. On July 20, 2015, once the internal investigation was complete, the Company made an initial written voluntary disclosure to the Government of various facts indicating their potentially illegal violations.

The investigation revealed that, in addition to the conduct disclosed by the Company, in December 2015, the Company exported spikenard oil harvested in Napal to the United Kingdom, without a CITES permit. The spikenard oil was previously imported from a company in the United Kingdom that had obtained a CITES export permit.

The Company found the product to be unsatisfactory and shipped it back to the United Kingdom. On March 23, 2016, a Company employee filed an application for a CITES permit for this shipment after the fact, and without providing the required copy of the permit authorizing its original export from the United Kingdom.

The investigation also revealed that between November 2014 and January 2016, the Company purchased over 1,100 kilograms of rosewood oil from a supplier/importer in the United States without conducting sufficient due diligence to verify lawful sourcing of that oil.

The Government calculates the fair market retail value of the plant products involved in the violations and relevant conduct, including but not limited to product equaling approximately 1,899.75 liters of rosewood oil, to be more than $3.5 million but not more than $9 million.

The investigation was conducted by the Law Enforcement Offices of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Office of the Inspector General, with assistance of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Department of Homeland Security, Investigations. This case is being prosecuted by the Justice Department’s Environment and Natural Resources Division’s Environmental Crimes Section and the District of Utah’s U.S Attorney’s Office.

Official Statement from Young Living Re: Lacey Act & Endangered Species Act Agreement

September 18, 2017

Young Living has rigorous sourcing standards to uphold as responsible stewards of the earth. However, the company didn’t live up to our standards in this instance. For that, we apologize and promise to do better. We are always in a state of continuous improvement, constantly examining and improving our processes as the company grows so we avoid future mistakes and adhere to the high standards we’ve set across the entire organization.

In late 2014, our new management team became aware of a situation that was identified by our compliance program in place at the time. We immediately conducted our own investigation with assistance from outside counsel, and voluntarily disclosed to the government in 2015 once this investigation was completed.

As part of Young Living’s commitment to comply with applicable laws and regulations wherever it does business, the company has developed a new comprehensive Lacey Act Compliance Program to help ensure that plant products come from legal and sustainable sources. Young Living is the first and only essential oils company to have a comprehensive Lacey Act-specific compliance program that has been reviewed and accepted by the government.

Young Living understands that it has a greater responsibility to help ensure quality and continuous improvement in leading the essential oils movement. As part of this responsibility, new programs have been developed that form the foundation of our new Seed to Seal pillars – Sourcing, Science and Standards.

Thirty-One Gifts CEO Says: We Will Grow Again

Personal attention has long been a big piece of the retailer tool box, and it’s become even more critical in an era when customers demand what they want when they want it and where they want it. It’s something that Columbus-based Thirty-One Gifts believes is its competitive edge.

“I actually think we have the advantage here over Amazon or e-commerce,” said Cindy Monroe, founder, president and CEO of Thirty-One.

“We have understood the customer experience for a really long time.”

“We already understand how to connect with customers. Our biggest risk is going to far the other way into digital. The problem in online is it’s hard to create that personal experience. For us, if we do online, it’s still an online party where (sales) consultants are personalizing the product, helping (customers) create a gift.”

Thirty-One Gifts uses an army of sales consultants selling personalized boutique items in house parties as the backbone of its direct-sales business. The business recently went through a cycle of growth, decline and resurgence that Monroe spoke of during the company’s recent annual sales conference at Nationwide Arena.

A decade after its founding in 2003, company revenue peaked at $763 million.

In 2014, revenue dropped to $643 million, then fell again in 2015 to $516 million and again in 2016 to a level that the privately held company has not disclosed.

“We were growing so fast we didn’t necessarily see it coming,” she said. “We weren’t sure it was a bump or new trend.”

By the second year of declines, she determined that change was needed, and some adjustments were made. “We can’t keep spending like a $700 million company.’”

The company cut its sales force significantly, dropping to 60,800 consultants this August from a high of 120,000 in 2012. Starting in 2015, Monroe and her team began doing “a lot of analysis,” and talked to sales leaders around the nation.

“We were asking lots of questions,” she said. “There wasn’t one silver bullet.

The advantage we had in bringing together our leadership team was we were talking with our leaders out in the field. It was just a collaboration we’ve never had before.”

By the third year of the down cycle, the company began to focus on growth again.

“The real turnaround started last fall. We were able to have a growth season for the first time in three years. Now that we’ve turned around, we can focus on building on that momentum.”

During the recent sales convention, Monroe told consultants that despite the downturn, the company will debt-free this year.

Monroe is committed to being there for her sales reps, mostly women from young families who want and need extra income. But that means the company has to keep an eye on trends so the merchandise is attractive to buyers.

(We’ve) got to stay current with social media, with products. We can’t sell same prints and products that we did 10 years ago.”

Mansour Tawafi From Afghanistan Achieves Blue Diamond Rank At OneLife

Mansour Tawafi From Afghanistan Achieves Blue Diamond Rank At OneLife

The United Kingdom is one of the most outstanding settings where OneLife  is getting amazing results, and one of the main actors and creators of that monumental success is Mansour Tawafi.

Mansour is a member of the SUCCESS4ALL team, the well-known and successful team founded and led by Igor E. Alberts and Andreea Cimbala, who are today one of the highest income networkers in the industry.

He is also a Blue Diamond, since May of this year. And a young leader, but with a potential he has already demonstrated in his work in the UK. Mansour is a sport enthusiast and does paragliding and skydiving, which are hobbies that go to show that there can’t be challenges that frighten him, although he also tells us about his other interests, which are reading and everything that helps him grow.

Mansour also confesses that he was an excellent student at school. All this makes up a perfect combination for success.

Born in Afghanistan, Mansour spent his childhood and the Netherlands and moved to the UK at the age of twelve, where he grew up and developed his career.

“The only thing I knew at the time was to get the best qualifications in order to get a good job and I had a lot of friends who followed that path. But when I saw what their lives were becoming, it made realize that I had to find a better way.”

This clash with the reality of work is very familiar to many who decided for this different industry, although for Mansour, the revelation was much clearer at a younger age.

“I took a gap year between college and university, during which I was employed for 9 months in my first job as a retail assistant. Towards the end of the gap year, I came across my first network marketing company and 2 weeks later left that job and decided I would never work for someone else again.”

Mansour’s new life plan wasn’t welcomed by his family and friends, especially when he decided to completely leave university so as to dedicate himself 100% to the training in network marketing.

The Tawafi Brothers

“I was constantly told by relatives and friends that I was wasting my time, but I never let anyone stop me from achieving my full potential.”

So, instead of giving up on the goal set, Mansour completely turned towards it. He focused on educating himself and learning from all the industry experts he could, attending workshops and participating in training programs. Mansour, who was once a boy with excellent grades at school, became a star student again, and in just one year of intensive work and study, he was earning £10,000 a month. He was only 19 at the time.

“To get to that stage was quite a journey, because I had to learn a lot of skills and elevate my mindset from earning wages to earning profits, and to distance myself from negative and toxic people.”

It was a remarkable achievement for such a young professional, but it was only the beginning. At the end of 2015, Mansour found out about OneLife through a good friend of his, who today is another outstanding leader of the company in the UK, Dr. Parwiz Daud.

“My dearest friend and elder brother Dr. Parwiz Daud knocked on my door at 2am and explained me about OneLife and OneCoin. An event was coming up in Frankfurt with Dr. Ruja Ignatova as the guest speaker, and we decided to go. From the moment I got there and heard Dr. Ruja share her vision, I told myself that this will probably be the biggest project I would ever be part of.”

And as he approached the OneLife concept, Mansour also saw the need for an economic alternative in these changing and unstable times.

“I am truly grateful to the visionary founder of OneLife and OneCoin Dr. Ruja Ignatova for helping millions of people have better hope for the future. I saw how much the value of the pound has decreased since the Brexit decision, and it is likely to fall even more.

Andreea Cimbala, Igor Alberts an Mansour Tawafi

For people to put their money in cryptocurrencies makes more sense today than ever before as we see the need of a better system. Brexit separates us from the world, but the OneLife concept unites the world and allows us to see a brighter future for us and our children.”

So, knowing Mansour as a methodical and devoted leader in anything he puts his mind to, his attitude to the vision of the company, which has a very specific utility in his country, it is easy to understand how he has achieved in just one year and half the rank of Blue Diamond. It is interesting how Mansour often uses the plural “we” when he speaks about that specific achievement. Mansour is a determined person in his goals, but he never forgets about team work.

“My accomplishments are definitely not a solo achievement and would not be possible without some very special people. First and foremost, my business partner and great leader who introduced me to OneLife, Dr. Parwiz Daud, then our fantastic team of visionaries around the planet, and of course, our incredible uplines starting from Staffan Liback, Jose Gordo, Mariana Lopez de Waard and the phenomenal couple and our sponsors Igor Alberts & Andreea Cimbala.”

And now that we have a good idea of Mansour’s path from the beginning to being a leader he is today, I want to know more about his team in the UK and how this rebirth of OneLife was in these lands.

“Every time people say a country cannot be built or the momentum is dead, we prove them wrong and show that true leaders can build anywhere. Every business has ups and downs, and our leaders kept true to themselves and worked relentlessly.”

His biggest secret of what has happened in the UK, he explains, is mainly a lot of work and the recognition deserved with such work. As well as a system of principles called HIT (Honesty, Integrity and Transparency).

And looking to the future, it is quite correct to predict that Mansour already has his eye on higher ranks, and even on the Crown Diamond. But he also thinks about the future beyond those ranks and even beyond network marketing itself.

Network marketing has made the biggest impact on my life, and my family and I are forever grateful to the entire industry.

However, I don’t see myself in network marketing forever. I want to support developing countries such as Afghanistan with their educational infrastructure in order to allow the coming generations to have a better life.”

Ex CEO Max International Pleads Guilty To Tax Evasion

According to an article in the Deseret News:

The former CEO of a Utah-based nutrition supplement company pleaded guilty Thursday to tax evasion.

Peter Nordberg, 61, was indicted by a federal grand jury in January with two counts of attempted income tax evasion, each carrying a statutory minimum sentence of five years in prison. He pleaded guilty to one of the counts Thursday, admitting to not paying $275,790 in taxes over two years.

 The second count will be dismissed at a sentencing hearing Nov. 30, according to court documents.

Between September 2007 and December 2011, Nordberg served as the chief executive officer of Max International, a Utah-based multilevel marketing company that manufactures and sells nutritional supplements.

In addition to his annual salary of $331,336 in 2009, Nordberg received a portion of the company’s commissions as a bonus, bringing his income to $822,647, according to the indictment.

Federal prosecutors say Nordberg, a Draper resident at the time, set up a limited liability company in Delaware under the name MAX MLM Partners and had his bonuses deposited into an associated bank account. Nordberg directed employees at Max International to report the money as non-employee compensation.

Nordberg did not report the bonus income on his taxes, according to the indictment, and repeated the practice in 2010.

With interest and penalties, court documents indicate Nordberg now owes $335,201 in restitution.

In a 2006 biography for Nordberg on Max International’s former website, Nordberg was credited with “more than 25 years of executive management, sales management and operations experience, predominantly in the high technology field ranging from start-up organizations to privately and publicly held multi-billion dollar organizations.”

In the months prior to Nordberg’s departure from Max International, the company settled a $1.2 million lawsuit with its Idaho Falls based rival, Melaluca.

Max International was accused of poaching Melaluca’s marketing executives and then conspiring to have those former workers breach their contracts with the company by recruiting other sales people.
