What is UNO? (Unlimited Networks of Opportunites)

Sunday, July 26, 2009 Posted by vernon go ,

Unlimited Network of Opportunities International Corporation
, or UNO is a company engaged in the distribution of health enhancing natural products and other services which recently opened in Cebu. UNO’s products range from a Glutathione soap, capsules and lotion; 8-in-1 Coffee that promotes well-being and boosts the immune system; Ultima-C, a non-acidic Vitamin C; and Fit Right slimming capsules with L-Carnitine, Green Tea and Ampalaya.

More Questions than Answers…

According to chief operating officer William Barbo, clarifies that UNO is not a get-rich-quick scheme, It is a contemporary way of spreading wealth across multiple individuals instead of a select few.

Base from that, why do those people there presenting it in such a way that within a short period of time, you will have a weekly 5-6 figure income? I have listened to their orientations, but maybe I want to see it in writing so that I can truly analyze it, how does it really work?

What and where are companies are making these products since UNO is just its marketing arm?

They say they're business is legal but the way they recruit people is rather IRRITATING! I talked to another recruit at the seminar and he told me that his friend lured him there too. AND ANOTHER ONE TOLD ME THAT I SHOULD SELL WHATEVER I HAVE JUST TO PAY FOR THE KIT!


Similar situation happened to me, but I don’t blame my friend. The process of recruitment is somewhat quite annoying and irritating, why not just say it to my face directly? I don’t like to be given false hope or lied to, just to share some information, I may or may not understand but I’m smart enough to do my own research if ever I don’t understand much of it.

...Let's call him Tim. Back when I first met him, he was this shy-looking but cool teenager who knew a lot of people I knew—bands, DJs, and other people…. I even told him about my friend Karl and his funny attempts of trying to attract me to MLM….he was a nice and sensible lad, I thought, and I certainly would want to work with him in future projects (he used to have a band, and I used to produce recorded music).

But when I saw him again at UNO, it was as if he was a different person! He spoke like those salespeople you see in department stores…He explained MLM like a Master Showman host, joked around sometimes to not bore us, and confidently claimed that in spite of him being just a mere “tambay,” he was already earning as much as Php5,000 per week.

… My friend Karl reduced me into an MLM prospect. All the things he said to me, including his knowledge of my need of money to do my dream cultural projects, were all parrot-speak from his fellow UNO members. I would have preferred it if he just told me directly that if I joined, he will be earning. But no, he even used everything he knew about me as a friend just so he could convince me.

I can relate to the statements…The thing that I observe is that, even if the COO guy said that it is not a get-rich-quick-scheme, people are somewhat unconsciously thinking that it is and promoting it as such. It saddens me to see my friend, not because of joining such a group but the personality and how I get treated now has totally changed, as if I am speaking to a totally different person! Maybe that is what money does to you or is it just blind greed?

Being a nice guy, I just listened to all the things he was saying but I told him that I was not convinced. So he asked help from a guy who seemed like an UNO veteran and the veteran started showing a lotta cash. While the guy was busy showing me wads of cash, I remembered an old story by a classmate of mine back in college who got scammed by Legacy. These were the same old tactics. In the back of my mind, I was saying "you gotta try harder than that boy."

Someone explain what is MLM and/or network marketing really? …give me documentation of such a system & show me the model please…

UNO members say that in case you join, you have to work hard to be successful. But most presenter use the term “tambay” implying that it is easy and not much work at all, isn’t that contradictory? If I am still to work hard, I’ll just continue to do my thing and face life with its constant cycle of ups and downs and live it to the full.

For me there are far more better and beautiful things to do and discover than having a pursuit of MONEY, but that is just me; I’m giving this the Benefit of the doubt in order to satisfy my curiosity about how this UNO – Unlimited Networks of Opportunities really work.
