Default Lia Sophia outlet sale?

I just saw a website for the Lia Sophia outlet sale. Are reps being cut out of this? I didn't see it on my reps site, or any way to enter her name on the outlet site.

That would be sad. I know when Sensaria closed it was immediate, so different than this case, but for our clearance sale it was through our sites but none of us got any commission from the massive sale. I so hope the reps are getting some benefit from them staying open for a bit after the announcement!

You are correct! We are getting nothing from the outlet sale! They asked us to finish out our parties this month and that everything would be 50% off and that we would make an extra 10%. Then they continued the outlet sale and even emailed all of our customers in our customer bank! I have had numerous people contacting me to order from the outlet. Sadly they have ruined my 8 years with them. Many of my parties from November are still waiting on refunds for items they no longer have in stock and they are not taking phone calls.
They even delayed our pay over a week and then it was wrong! So ready to move on with Lulu Avenue!

That's awful! I'm so sorry that people who have put so much into the company are being treated this way! Good luck with your new business!

I'm sorry that you all are being treated like that!

It always amazes me how these companies treat the people who made them their money for all of those years. lia sophia would not have been as successful as it was had it not been for consultants like Crissy who built a customer base and organization. Shame on the owners for how they are treating these consultants. I don't know how they sleep at night.
I thought about ordering some of the jewelry during the sale, but now that I have heard this-I won't be giving that company one penny of my money.
I hope others will boycott it as well.

Thank you so much for not ordering from them ladies! It makes me so sad that in 1 month they have ruined my 8 fabulous years with them. I have sold off most of my inventory which was so helpful at Christmas time!
I am just getting going with my new company Lulu Avenue. I feel like I did 8 years ago! It is so exciting! They are listening to us and making amazing additions to help us book and recruit!
I feel so much better!

Thanks for the support
