Team National – Opinion
By now you're probably asking yourself: So, is Team National a scam or not?
The truth is, it really depends on your sponsor. If you sign up under a someone who will take the time to teach you the system, success is likely. *After all, their method works - they got you to sign up, didn't they? *
But... if your host isn't interested in the opportuntiy side of Team National (i.e., they mainly use their membership for the savings), your success is far less likely. Without a mentor to guide you through the competitive world of Direct Marketing, you're sure to end up discouraged.
In summary: Team National is a great way to save money; after a year or two, the membership pays for itself. But making money is a different story. If you're thinking about joining Team National for the opportunity, you really need to choose a host who (A) already has a proven sales method, and (B) has the time and will to teach it to you.
