For the benefit of new readers, I have decided to write a brief synopsis of my blogging career and why I blog. I started out as simply a member of the Quixtar Blog Forum. I believe I joined in late 2003 or early 2004. I had joined the forum as I had been an IBO, built my business to 4000 PV. I had some problems with upline and saw some crossline get bad advice, which made my decision to quit an easy one.
A year or so later, I started my own blog. It was quite popular, getting as many as 10,000 visitors in a month. Eventually, the host of my blog did not maintain the host site and I was unable to log in and write new stories. I had quit blogging briefly and was about to drop off the blogging scene. But prolific Amway apologist, IBOfightback kind of ticked me off and gave me the energy I needed to restart Joecool's blog.
After I quit Amway in 1998, I sort of forgot about it and got on with my life. Eventually, with Dateline and the internet available, I eventually discovered thye tools scam, which I had suspected when I was an IBO, and now fully confirmed as an ex-IBO. The more I learned about how my upline had scammed us, the more I was determined to expose the truth for prospects and current IBOs.
Over the years, I have probably received a hundred or more letters/emails of thanks for the information that I provide to potential recruits. What I have found is the lies and deception many IBOs and Uplines use in recruiting and retaining IBOs. I remain to help them find the truth. It's why I am still around after all of these years,
