eFoods Global (aka Sundance Global) is a new network marketing company that is taking planning for the future to a whole new level. As an MLM offspring of non-perishable/storable foods company, eFoodsDirect,  its goal is to help people prepare for good and bad times by providing them with high-quality, storable food that they’ll actually want to eat and to help its Independent Business Owners make a substantial income  in the process.

eFoods Global (Sundance Global) Scam Review

On the plus side, their product is one the “best in class” when it comes down to the storable foods market and has been for the past 28 years through eFoodsDirect. If you’re like me, the thought of storable food brings to mind the barely edible rations that have been passed off as food for the military for the last 75 years. Thankfully, that’s not the case with eFoods Global (Sundance Global).

Even though the food is dehydrated and has a shelf life of about 15 years, everything is made from fresh raw foods, and they don’t use any genetically modified ingredients, trans fats, or garbage like MSG to make it edible. The food packages range from a one week supply all the way up to a year’s worth of storable food called the Freedom Package. Honestly, I didn’t really see the appeal of the concept at first, but after poking around the eFoods Global (Sundance Global) website, they did raise some very valid points on why someone would want to have their own stock pile of food. Don’t read if you plan on going to bed tonight, though… :D

With most people who are researching the network marketing industry for the first time, one of the main questions that they have is, “Is this a scam?”. One of the easiest ways to tell if you’re looking at a legitimate business opportunity is to ask yourself, “What product or service does this company provide?”. If you can’t easily tell, that’s a strong indication that you should probably run!

Review of Sundance Global (eFoods Global) Business

There’s not a ton of information currently out there about the compensation plan, but it’s based on a binary model which means that your business is built with two separate “legs”. They pay 10% weekly commissions on the volume of the smaller leg, and include up to a 25% bonus match on your personally recruited IBO’s that you’ll be training. There will likely be additional bonuses and commissions that you can earn which will be announced as eFoods Global (Sundance Global) continues to grow.

There are a few incentives that they are offering to people who join ($29.95 fee) before they launch:

- All new IBO’s will receive a voucher for $20 worth of free food (and an additional $20 for every 2 people they refer who use their vouchers).
- Until 11/15/10, the company is giving it’s IBO’s one share in it’s Global Founders Pool where the company will share 1% of it’s revenues with the IBO’s who start early.

eFoods Global (Sundance Global) Is NOT a Scam

The truth is that even if you get in with a company like eFoods Global (Sundance Global) at the beginning, it’s not a guarantee at success or a magic bullet that’s going to make everything easy. You still need to learn how to properly market your business so you won’t have to live or die by whether or not your best friend decides to  join you. My recommendation is to find a mentor who can link arms with you and show you how to properly generate MLM leads for your business, because as we all know, leads are the lifeblood of your business.

World Ventures Leadership and Competition

One of the things I look for when I take a look at the leadership of a company like World Ventures is whether or not the executive team is readily identifiable or if you need to hire Scooby and the Gang to find them. The reason is because the companies in the past that turned out to be a scam, one of the things they had in common was multiple layers of contacts designed to hide, rather than showcase, who the real principals were.

For example, they’d register their website in Israel, set up a PO Box in the UK for their mailing address, and have an 800 number that forwards to a location in Romania with no mention of who’s running the operation.

That’s not the case with World Ventures. In fact they proudly promote their entire corporate team which includes some heavy hitters like  America West Airlines Co-founder  Michael Conway, Mike Rose, a former US Senator, and network marketing veterans Wayne Nugent and Mike Azcue.

As you go further into your research into whether or not World Ventures is a scam, you may find some negative things being said about Wayne Nugent and Mike Azcue.  From what I’ve seen, a few people have been bashing them on different blogs and online forums based on their past involvement as distributors in a failed network marketing travel company right before they founded World Ventures.

The truth is on the internet anyone can say pretty much anything they want, which is both the best and worst thing about it. Personally, I don’t feel their credibility with World Ventures should be based on their association as leading independent distributors with a failed company they had no control over.

Over the past 5 years, Wayne, Mike, and the rest of the  leadership team that World Ventures has in place have garnered very positive reviews. So far so good, right?

Travel Industry Certifications

As a company in the travel industry, World Ventures has gained, and more importantly held onto, certifications with the standard industry organizations including the CLIA, ASTA, & IATA for the past 5 years.  Unfortunately, there have been a number of MLM travel companies that opened shop and gained their certifications, but luckily for consumers had their certifications revoked for operating as a travel agent card mill.  That’s not the case with World Ventures, and it looks very unlikely that they would fit into the category of a travel scam since they have travel industry icons on their corporate team and have maintained their certifications.

How does World Ventures biz compare to their MLM competition?

As I mentioned previously, there have been a number of travel-related network marketing companies that have been called scams since they were selling travel agent credentials to customers disguised as a product. The good news is most of these companies  have been basically “weeded out” over the past few years with only a few competing MLM companies remaining.


TraVerus is a relatively new player in the home business travel industry and has some interesting quirks. Mainly what I’m talking about is they recently added a re-seller portal to their business model which allows their agents to sell products ranging from vitamins and supplements to household appliances.   It’s positive in theory, but in general when a company tries to offer too many non-related products, it can dilute their distributors’ marketing efforts.

As for their certifications, everything looks good on that front so far.

YTB (Your Travel Biz)

Size-wise, YTB is by far the largest MLM competitor (25th largest reseller according to Travel Weekly) that World Ventures has and is even a publicly traded company.  After taking a look at their online travel portal, I can’t say that it offered anything special which would make me want to use it over any other travel site. To be fair, I didn’t take the time to compare its prices to other sites, so it may be very well worth taking a look at in that respect.

I’ve heard some talk about YTB losing their IATA certification along with having some legal troubles with  a few states involving class action lawsuits, so they may be on a downward slide.  I guess only time will tell if they’ll emerge victorious or end up like so many other now defunct travel-oriented companies.

TVI Express

I hate to say negative things about other network marketing companies but in my opinion, TVI Express is a dog and probably shouldn’t be listed as competition…

Some Growing Pains

There have been some growing pains for World Ventures over the past 5 years, mainly stemming from having to make some changes to their compensation plan to keep it around an acceptable 65% ratio.  There was a time where they actually had to reduce their payouts to get back down to this level, which usually causes distributors to leave in flocks, so it’s a testament to World Ventures leadership team that the losses were kept to a minimum during these times.

Verdict: World Ventures is Not a Scam

After taking a look at World Ventures as a company, it’s my opinion that they are one of the few bright lights in the MLM travel industry which has featured more than one instance of people touting huge income claims to make a quick buck.  They have a strong corporate team with a history of ethical behavior and success, have a compensation plan that is both legal and fair to its representatives without any front running, and they offer a product that actually provides value to their customers regardless if they’re affiliated with the company as an agent or not. What more can we ask? :D
