Default Lia Sophia closing?

People started posting about Lia Sophia closing on Facebook today. It seems unbelievable. Anyone know what happened?

It is true. They have posted it on their Corporate Page. No explanation so far. I sold it for 4 years from 2006-2010.

I am sad but knew it was coming. It is one reason I left. They just wouldn't listen to their consultants. I think if a company doesn't listen to its field, it is doomed. They are the ones who are out selling and know what they need.

I am saddened for all of the reps. I was reading on there and they were still taking new consultants up through a few days ago and they will not be refunding their kit cost.

Most of my friends were already out of it but I still had a few and they were leaders. I know it will be hard on them.

Oh, I feel really bad for those consultants. Last year it was Lindt Chocolate RSVP ... this year it's Lia Sophia. What's next ?

Sending warm thoughts to all,

So very sad when I heard the news today. Lots of hugs to all those reps that were hit with this announcement today. I can't even imagine if I woke up tomorrow to that kind of news about my company I am with. Hugs hugs and more hugs.

I just read about it on my own company team pages. Earlier I had seen a recruiting post for Lia Sophia and couldn't figure out what Perfectly Posh had to do with Lia Sophia. I'm not sure people realize how insensitive targeted recruiting like that is

For an current reps I can imagine there is a grieving process and I wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. It must be hard.

Default Sad never put all your eggs in one basket

Gosh I just heard about it myself on Facebook. So sorry to the reps that have now lost their business I just hope that they had something else to fall back on until they can find something that fits their needs. It's always important to have multiple streams of income in this business. ..you never know what can happen with companies. Brand yourself..if you have branded yourself well then it won't be so hard to transition and bring your team with you to the next business!
