I know a person who was very eager to talk to me about this outfit. I immediately recognized the signs and did some research. Seems like there are people who don't have nice things to say about this outfit. Any input?

Well, it's got to be either Frontsight, or Amway. [:D] Edited to add smilyface. I don't want to be sued.

An ex girlfriend of mine did a whole bunch of the landmark classes. From what she told me about them, they seemed like a waste of money. She was worried about having an "breakthrough" and shit like that afterword. After the first class she took from them (it was every night for 5 days I think) she admitted that it wasn't very helpfull (which was rare). However, she went back and took a few more classes from them. I'm not sure how she liked em cause I haven't spoke to her in a several months, but just from my outside observation, I would say it is a waste of money and time.

Landmark Education. I think they try to drain you out. She told me the class is like 12hrs long. At the end they probably try to hit you with more sales pitches and recruiting techniques. Why the F would a class have to be 12hrs long? Are you supposed to lose your bearings in that time frame?

She was pretty hyped up about it too. Apparently she resolved some things with her mother. Too bad it had to cost her unknown amounts of $$$$. I better my friend a call then, I would hate to see good money go to waste on anything other than guns, or watches! Hope she will listen.

I think the only reason she took more classes is because her good friend took em, and told her that it would be good for her if she did. It sounds like a scam to me, but I'm a skeptical guy when it comes to things like this. [url=http://www.landmarkeducation.com]for those who don't know what we are talking about[/url]

I don't know who got her sucked into this but she's unemployed and recently divorced. I would hate to see her piss away her savings on these flying saucer wannabe's. When I mentioned this to my other friend he also knew of a chick who's currently involved in this racket. SHe's also going thru some personal stuff right now.

As I was getting final supplies I hear all this yelling, cheering, chanting in the back of the store. Of coarse I gotta see WTF is going on. I come upon a midget of a man who was the store manager, screaming at the employees like a little Napoleon, Pumping up the employees. I laugh and thought "If I worked hear, I would be proud and happy I was making minimum wage. Now I'm gonna go sell oil products for cars the best that I can.

LOL! I also stumbled across a WallyWorld rally. Think someone said, "I'm gonna show that blasted toilet a thing or two".

I hate to see people waste their money as well. If she seems hell bent on taking this thing, have her take a one or two day class and see if she finds in beneficial. If she feels it helps her, take more, if not at least she knows and isn't out as much money. On a non related note, with a lot women going to these things, if lordtrader went, think he could get a date?

Now me and my friend have to devise a game plan to talk to these two womenZ. Amazing how cults come in all sizes and shapes. They probably don't even realize it's a cult, though not a religious one. They still want mind control and take your money.
