As an ex agent, who put my heart and soul into my business and worked hard while doing it for USCC also, I can say this: I'm much happier now that I'm not an agent.

As to the deception and lies? If you were turned on at all, that's been going on for some times, but in the last, say 3 years, it's gotten worse.

You can see what the real message is beneath all the "corporate speak" the agents who helped build this company in earlier years are not needed as much for distribution. This really is American business as usual, get folks to invest time, money, energy then when saturation levels are reached, start getting ready to cut, starting with smaller stores, then working up.

It's not just USCC it's many American companies. Yet, the way USCC is going about it--stinks, a lot.

When I had the discussion with my attorney about closing, he asked the reasons (he was also a customer) as I went through the reasons, his answer was: "They're beginning to set you up for failure, just as many other companies are."

For a company that I worked so hard with and enjoyed, I now have little respect for.

PS: That Kool-Aid? It was pretty deep, I think the plug has been pulled though, it seems to be draining.
