Is Total Life Changes a Scam? - The Truth Revealed!!!

I am pretty sure you are curious what Total Life Changes (TLC) is all about...

And, whether or not you can really earn money with the Total Life Changes opportunity.

You are in the right place because I am going to share with you everything you need to know so that you can make an educated decision.

The company was founded by Jack Fallon a very long time ago, and it was first known as SeAcai...

Until it was re-branded as Total Life Changes in 2012.

Over the past few years the company has grown massively, and many distributors have been going around promoting this as an "amazing business opportunity".

TLC-Owners

"Helping people lose weight and earn money at the same time", that's the message that lures people to the company.

Honestly, who wouldn't want to lose weight without exercising, right? I know I am one of them.

And, if I really did lose weight, the logical thing for me to do is to share the products with others.

That's the whole idea of the Total Life Changes opportunity...

However, because of such a bold claim where distributors "Guarantees" people that they will lose 5 pounds in 5 days. This has gotten a lot of bad press for the company.

In the following sections, we will discuss about the effectiveness of the products, as well as a question that most people have in mind, which is...

"Is Total Life Changes a Scam or a Pyramid Scheme?"

Just to give you a drift of how this review will pan out, let me just give you a summary:

Total Life Changes Review Summary...

Total Life Changes Review on the Business Opportunity

The Total Life Changes business opportunity is not a scam nor it is a pyramid scheme (in my opinion), however, it is not an opportunity that is suitable for everybody.

Before You Join Total Life Changes as a Distributor...

So, your friend or a family member has approached you to join this amazing business opportunity...

Or, maybe you are interested in the products because you've watched an episode of Dr Oz...

But, you are still on the fence because there are lots of questions in your mind.

On one hand, you do not want to be peer pressured into this business opportunity...

And, on the other hand, you are worried that rejecting the person recommending this business to you may destroy the relationship.

Let me help you get through this dilemma by sharing with you an objective point of view...

Know if the products work for you!

This is the single most important question you have to ask yourself before joining.

Think about it, if you can't convince yourself that the products work, how do you think you can convince others that it will work, right?

In other words, how can you sell a product that you don't believe in?

So, instead of being pressured into this business opportunity, maybe you can just become a customer of the company for a period of time...

And, try the products for at least a month to see if the products work for you.

Honestly, nothing is guaranteed in life, the products of TLC may or may not work for you.

Just take a look at these customer reviews...

Now, if the products worked for you, and you intend to promote the TLC products for profit...

Here's what you need to know... 

Earning Money is not as easy as it seemed!

There are many TLC distributors who would go at lengths to promote the TLC business opportunity as a way to earn easy money from home.

Their pretense is that everyone in this world would love to lose weight without ever exercising...

And, the TLC products are going to be the perfect fit for those people (an easy sell)!

Unfortunately, the truth is far from advertised!

If it was so easy, why is there a 95% failure rate?

Honestly, it is not because TLC is a scam or it is a lousy opportunity.

There are many factors that cause someone to fail in the business, and I'll share those factors below.

Back to: Summary

Is Total Life Changes a Pyramid Scheme?

The determining factor of any pyramid scheme is the products.

Before we move forward, let's watch this video to understand what a pyramid scheme really is.

To put it simply, a pyramid scheme is where people earn money while recruiting other people.

The primary focus of a pyramid scheme is always the recruitment.

And, the products are just a "smoke screen" to disguise the pyramid operation as a "legitimate" business.

In other words, the products are snake oil, and people are recruiting others to sell the snake oil.

So, is Total Life Changes really a pyramid scheme?

In my opinion, I don't think it is.

Because, the products really did help some people lose weight.

But, some might argue that the consumption instructions given (Like keeping your calorie intake at 1200 per day) will provide the results with or without the TLC products...

What is your opinion on this? I'd love to hear from you. Please leave a comment in the comment section below.

TLC is not a Pyramid Scheme, but many distributors made it look like one!

Unfortunately, there are some unscrupulous distributors who only cares about recruiting, because it is the quickest way to earn from the business opportunity.

There are basically 6 ways to earn from the TLC, but relying only on the retail sales itself isn't going to earn you a life changing income.

At some point, you are going to need to recruit distributors into your sales team in order to earn a substantial income.

And, because of this fact, some distributors neglect selling the products, and went straight into selling the business opportunity.

This is probably one of the reasons why so many people think that TLC is a pyramid scheme.

Although I don't think that the company is running a pyramid scheme, but I think it is the company's responsibility to manage their distributors. 

Again, if you really think that TLC is a pyramid scheme, and you disagree with my opinion, please feel free to leave a comment below.

Back to: Summary

Should You Join Total Life Changes?

As I've mentioned, to earn money with the Total Life Changes business opportunity isn't going to be easy.

So, here are some factors that will cause someone to fail...

1. It is not suitable for everyone

When you join TLC as a distributor, you automatically become an advocate, a salesperson for the company.

If you are not comfortable in a sales environment, then I would suggest that you avoid this entirely.

To be successful in TLC, you need to have certain characteristics (for example: outgoing, strong minded, great communication skills, etc).

And, if you lack in any of the characteristics, it can be nurtured but it will take an experienced and patient mentor to coach you.

Unfortunately, searching for a successful and caring mentor is like finding a needle in a haystack.

2. Training & Support

In all of the MLM businesses that I've joined over the years, I always had the same problem...

Lack of training and support!

You are limited to the training your uplines, sponsor (the person who've referred you to TLC), or leaders provide.

If you have joined the wrong team, like I did in all of my MLM ventures, you would have lost interest and quit evidently.

The training and support is very important in any kind of business and if you do not have a top notch coach who is willing to take their time and effort to nurture you, then you are doomed to fail.

Honestly, I have been searching for a solution to this generic problem most TLC distributors face, and I think I have found a reliable coaching platform that teaches distributors how to bring their TLC business online through attraction marketing

I personally feel that attraction marketing is one of the best, if not, the only way to grow the TLC business in this day and age. 

If you are serious about growing your TLC business, I highly recommend that you start implementing attraction marketing to your business.

3. Easy to sell products, Hard to promote an opportunity

It is one thing about promoting the TLC's product, it is another promoting a dream.

Products are much easier to promote than a business opportunity.

Not everyone is suitable to be in this business, you need certain kinds of characteristic (as mentioned above) to be successful.

I was in the direct selling industry when I was a teenager, and I will be honest that I had lost a huge sum of money.

I have joined many companies like TLC. Companies like World Ventures, Herbalife, Forever LivingShopping Sherlock and many more, but I've never profited from them.

During my MLM days, I managed to sell several products and was quite satisfied with my performance as a salesman...

But, when it comes to selling the dream (the opportunity), people started to wander off.

To your surprise, not everyone is open to the idea of starting a business. Not everyone has the entrepreneurial mindset as you do.

If you think that the "American Dream" lives in everyone, then you are so wrong.

Out of  100 people you find on the streets, there is probably only one who will be open to your business idea.

Everyone wants to be rich, but not everyone is willing to take the risk to be rich (the risk of wasting their time), that's the ugly truth of life.

4. Limited customers

Is this familiar to you? You...

  1. Are tasked to jot down a list of people whom you think would potentially buy your products or join your business opportunity;
  2. Started to call the people in your list to schedule a "friendly Meetup";
  3. Brought your sponsor to the meeting with your friend (because you don't know how to sell the products yet). Then, your friend says that she or he will think about your offer;
  4. Tried following up with your friend after a few days, but you can't get through;
  5. Weeks and months passed by, and no response. You are ghosted!

Does this sound familiar to you? This happened to me 90% of the time.

When I was with the company, I only had 300 people in my list.

Fairly quickly, I ran out of people to contact, and I soon found myself in the NFL club.

You know, the "No Friends Left" club?

To be successful with TLC...

You see, to be successful in any kind of business, you need a steady stream of new prospects to your business.

I would presume that finding an endless stream of highly targeted prospects to the TLC business is the most challenging part of the opportunity.

The majority of the distributors failed in this aspect, because they don't know how to grow their TLC business out of their own contact list.

That is why I suggest TLC distributors to bring their business online through attraction marketing.

So, should you join TLC?

It comes down to these 2 questions...

  1. Did you have a positive experience with the TLC products?
  2. Are you comfortable being in the sales environment?

If any of the answers to the above questions is NO, then you should NOT join TLC. I would recommend that you check this out instead.

However, if you have decided that TLC is the way to go for you, I would recommend that you learn the skill of attraction marketing

Because, this is the only way that you can find an endless stream of highly targeted prospects.

Back to: Summary

What is Total Life Changes?

Total Life Changes is a Multilevel Marketing company that promotes health and wellness products that could change your life in entirety.

As mentioned, the company was called SeAcai before it was re-branded and marketed as Total Life Changes.

The products range from Nutritional supplements to skin care to weight loss. There is a wide range of products to promote in Total Life Changes.

When I first wrote this review back in 2015, I complained about the lack of product information on the website (like the ingredients or its health benefits).

This section highlighted in orange is a part of the review I wrote in 2015...

TLC-products

One problem with the product page is that you can't find the ingredients of the product or its health benefit.

I am an online shopper and I like to do my due diligence before I purchase anything online.

If I want to buy a pack of premium coffee, I want to know at least the ingredients and health benefit to it.

Unfortunately, if you see the image below about the Iaso Black coffee with Ganoderma, it did not show its benefits.

There should at least be a link for me to discover what Ganoderma is and its benefits. The same goes for all the products in Total Life Changes.

TLC-product-coffee

I know Total Life Changes is a direct selling company and its main strategy is face-to-face selling, however, given the advancement in technology, I believe Total Life Changes should upgrade itself to suit the needs of online shoppers.

A New & Improved Look!

Fortunately, TLC has upgraded their website to look stylish and up to date.

And, most importantly, they've added the list of ingredients and the product benefits to its website.

Now, it looks like this...

Total Life Changes New and Improved Look

This is a good sign when a company is taking steps to improve their business operations.

The Compensation Plan

Back to: Summary

Joining Total Life Changes

To join Total Life Changes, you need to provide an Enroller's ID (Will be provided by the person who referred you).

And, you have to purchase at least a product.

In the past, signing up to Total Life Changes is free, and all you need to do is to purchase any products.

However, things have changed.

Cost for joining TLC...

Now, you would need to purchase an additional "Business Starter Kit" for $35. So, the total cost of starting this business (assuming that you've selected the cheapest products), is $84.95. 

How to Join Total Life Changes - Business Starter Kit

Just like in the past, the cheapest product you can find is NUTRA BURST.

But, the price of NUTRA BURST has increased to $49.95, and 2 other products, "IASO Tea 5 Pack" and "HSN - Hair, Skin, Nails", have joined its rank.

How to Join Total Life Changes - Cheapest Products

However, if you want to start the business right, it is recommended that you start with one of these business packs:

SmartShip Products

SmartShip is Total Life Changes' Auto-shipment program.

So, if you'd like to receive a certain product automatically on a monthly basis, you can choose to join the SmartShip program.

The SmartShip program is NOT Mandatory (unlike other direct selling companies).

Total Life Changes Review Summary...

My Advice if you are ready to be a TLC distributor...

If you've a positive experience with the products and you feel that you are suitable to be a TLC distributor...

Then, I wish you all the best in your journey with TLC, and I hope that you will learn the skill of attraction marketing.

Do not purely rely on recruiting your friends and family members, because they are usually not the type of people who will grow your organization.

You need to learn how to attract the right kind of people into your organization in order for you and your business to prosper.

The only way I know you can find an endless stream of highly targeted prospects is through attraction marketing.

My Advice if you think TLC is not the right business opportunity for you...

Personally, I am not cut out to be a salesperson, but I've found success with Affiliate Marketing.

It is one of the most lucrative ways to start an online business, and it is the business that got me out of the rat race.

And, if you are interested to know which program is responsible for my success, I highly recommend that you check this out.

Hi Jack,

This Jeanette, I just want to share the resolution from TLC. After three months plus, they decided to unlock my account charging me an extra fee of $55.00. As an Account Specialist, I never heard of such, the only fee I know of is when a company offset your commision. Nevertheless, I agreed but not happy with the extra charge of $55.00.

God gets the glory.
Thanks, for reading my cry.

My name Jeanette, I joined TLC in 2016.

TLC is a great company with excellent products. I have never experienced any problem with the products. The only minus thing I have experienced is getting tlc customer service dept and accounting department to send a letter back to my CC holder, to vaildate a dollar amount so I can be debit back and pay TLC there money back. This miscommunication been going on since April 2018 up until now July 17, 2018. The issue started when my card was charged a small amount and I didn’t understand the charge, I call TLC customer service and asked if they could explain the charge. The person view all of my orders and TLC pricing, she had know clue. I was advise by TLC customer service to call my CC and dispute the charge and I did. Two weeks later I received an email stating my account was lock due to a dispute, I called TLC customer severice to see why I was locked out. I explained to her what happen, this is when I found out that TLC used some of my points to pay for my smartship and billed me the balance. I was happy that she explained it to me but I’m still unable to use my account. I contact my CC holder and told them that the charge was a legit charged and to send a letter to TLC so they can validate that the charge is ok. My CC holder been waiting since April 2018, for TLC to send back the letter so they can reverse the charge as of today Jul 17, 2018, my CC holder have not received the letter back. I have been calling and texting TLC and nothing has happen my account is still lock. I text TLC today 7-17-18 and they texted back saying they are waiting on my CC holder, I called today 7-17-2018, the manager Nichole at my CC holder and she stated that they have not received anything from TLL, she was just amazed that TLC made that statement, my CC holder is still waiting to receive the letter back from TLC. Ms. Nichole, stated she will note my account that the charge is a valid charge. I’m so frustrated about something so small that have been taken out of content and is taken so long to clear up. As an Accounting Specialist, I’m just lost with words. I asked TLC if they will do a credit and rebilled, GL or a Journal Ledger TLC accounting dept never reply.
Please I like to know what else can I do to clear up this issue up? I wonder if the owner knows how representatives are treated! In spite of this miscommunication I pray that this can be corrected.

This is my 1st time doing MLM and I want to do it right.

Please readers do not take this out of content. TLC is an excellent company with great products!

Thanks
Jeanette

    I am not quite sure I get what you mean Eddardo.

    What do you mean by personal training tool? Do you mean by developing a training program that wraps around Total Life Changes?

The most popular products that everyone seems to use for great and quick weight loss is the tea combined with NRG, and Nutraburst or the resolution drops! I’m telling you as a customer that you simply can’t go wrong with this trio!! Good luck and happy weight loss everyone.

Hello and thanks for your insight. I have the magazine for total life changes and the DVD that most people don’t have the opportunity to see. And you’re right, I’m sure I could be coached and taught all the necessary components to be successful in this endeavor, but I feel just like with any business you would have to spend a lot of your free time Each and every day in making sure that your business was a success. That would be very extremely difficult for myself being that I work 3rd Shift and I am gone every day for at least half the day, so this would not be suitable for me. So I am grateful to you that I did not waste a lot of time in this just to end up failing. So yes your thoughts that you shared were very beneficial in making a wise decision for me – That this is not my calling.

Thanks Jack for your review, even though it is outdated. I too, am a TLC distributor. I have been in this business for 2 years now. Our products are awesome and the leaders have worked very hard to build TLC into 5 star direct sales company. We have come a long way in my short 2 years. Our comp plan can’t be beat and training is available every night of the week. We boast in having the number 1 female network marketer in the busines, Ms. Stomy Wellington, AWESOME leader and coach. As well as many 6 digit earners. We tap into 7 of the most popular markets at this time and we are thrilled with the success of our products. I use many of the products myself and I am so pleased with how I look and feel. TOTAL LIFE CHANGES HAS CHANGED MY LIFE! It can change your too!

Hi Jack,
Thanks for the brilliant resume. I have also done a lot of MLM in the past and gave up. I recently joined TLC because the tea and coffee, particularly the coffee worked for me. I am not a good salesman but I would like to move the product online. Can you help me?

    Jack Cao - Reply

    Hi Stephen,

    I am not sure on what I can help you with, but I can give you some pointers:

    1. I would suggest that instead of marketing the products through physical meetings or parties, do it online, that way your audience are much larger;
    2. Learn how to be an Internet Marketer. You can gain the knowledge as a Online Marketer here;
    3. Understand your prospects (find out the reasons that will cause them to buy your product, and problems do they face);
    4. Own a website and write blogs that will help your prospects;
    5. Share your blogs on social media

    Hope this helps! Feel free to ask me any questions.

    Cheers!

Thank you so much for this review and your suggestions. TLC is only my second attempt at MLM. The first was with a matrix , but only for about six months and while I thought I would do better with this because it’s in the health area, I find it more difficult. I’m not really shy, but I’m discovering that I’m somewhat an introvert when it involves sales. It’s been a year for me and I really have made no profit. I have been thinking about stopping but with your suggestion for gaining a customer base, I’ll try a little longer and harder.

In recent years the courts have come after companies that require reps to purchase a product each month in order to remain active. I looked at the company website, on that site, the VP states his income along with other leaders, this is a clear regulatory violation. After a quick review, it seems rather obvious this is all about making a few key leaders really rich and pulling others in by selling the dream.. a false dream.

Thank you Jack Cao, I really appreciate the write-up on TLC. I have been contacted by my girlfriend and she has shown me the results of the products. She first ordered and then used the products and then posted her results and I have to say that it is unbelievable because I know her very well and I know how she looked before and now I see her and she looks wonderful.

I am considering joining the TLC organization and the only reason why is because I do have a large groups of friends. I am going to be first ordering the products first and use it myself and then I will do posting of my progress and take it from there.

I am glad to read that TLC is a legitimate company and the products are good qualities. But like I told my sponsor I will be testing the products out myself before asking my friends.

So, again thank you for the write-up on this company and as with all adventures there is going to be some good reviews and bad reviews. I will let you know how everything goes.

Thank you

I dont believe in most MLM prorgrams for many of the reasons stated above. Most of products sold are ripoffs and scams. That make selling something you dont believe in almost impossuble from the start. Based on product reviews, their products seem pretty good. In a world of epidemic Diabetes, Cancer, Heart Disease, Chronic Obesity, Toxicity which causes inexlicable medical problems….this company seems to have some great ideals. I have a pretty good amount of knowledge regarding herbs and supplements. I am also a Certifid Personal Trainer with the American Council of Exercise so people ask my opinions on nutrition and exercise. I’m 52 years old, 5’11″” wt 178…walk and or run a combined total of 6 to 12 miles a day (according to my fitbit). Engage in strength training 4 or 5 times a week, ride a bike almost daily and assist in coaching my son’s basketball team and still play in over 40 leagues. I take many of the supplements I heard them discuss and I am familiar with the ingredients. Although I have never participated in MLM…and have walked away from many people who have presented these ideals….this concept bears interest to me. I spent at least $100 a month on vitamins, supplements, and herbs….so this this doesn’t represent an increase in monthly cash outflow. The problems in supply are problems of a rapidly growing company…a good problem…but one that needs to be fixed. If you’re morbidly obese, in terrible shape and dont exercise and maintain a terrible diet…this ia probably not a good opportunity. If you follow tnis regimen….it may b e worth trying. If the worse thing I can lose is the cost of a bottle of vitamins, herbs or tea….its probably worth further exploration.

Hi Jack,

Nice review. My reason for commenting is that I was approached about this biz. opp. and wanted more info on it. So what I did was use reverse marketing on the situation and actually got the lead to join my business.
Some people do struggle with promoting but when you learn the best alternative it is easy. I’ve lost thousands when I started in the MLM Industry 11 years. Now I research through blogs, google, bing and other resources before joining anything.
I always start by asking simple question like, does you company provide leads, close all sales, is the start up under one hundred dollars, do they donate to a charity organization, etc..
Regards,
Rob

The WORST customer service EVER! I joined in August 2015 & in one month I am deleting my account & I have lost money. I placed a order & only received part of it. They have given me the run around for a month. I am reporting this incident to BBB & publicly encouraging everyone to stay away from them

I think tlc is a great program i see many people are having success with it. I even at one point considered joining friend gave me some tea. i decided not to. Nothing against them i just am no longer interested in mlms. Much luck to all though that decide to join they do have a generous comp plan.

My comment is i have tried networking business in the past past but did not out for me.People keep telling that is expensive to sign up and the products are expensive.I came across TLC on Facebook and i have been talking to the lady that posted the Ad.But my problems here i don’t want to be a failure.Some of the products are expensive.The cheapest is the coffee.I think you should make the products affordable to people.I think you did not see that part,and is one of the things that leads to failure when products are expensive.Prices are some worth looking in to.That is why i decided to join Avon.cost me only$10 to sign up.And is stress free.And they are affordable

more and am not fond of monthly high costs or that you have to recruit others….i believe in freedom. I am into anything natural and healthy…anyone have any ideas?

Hello Jack,

very good write up, however, I must pick you up on one point.

You say there is no membership fee, but have to buy one product a month.

The value by the way is 40PCV, which equates to about $44.

That is the membership fee disguised as a product purchase.

Some commentators have described TLC as a product based pyramid scheme. I understand why.

What hurts though is how easy it is for this company not to pay you commissions …….. ever.

Also to minimise through the binary plan how much you may earn.

Not a company I suggest people being involved with.

    Hello Laurence, on what do you base your statement about TLC commissions and their binary plan?

    Jack and anyone, please weigh in if you know and Laurence cannot answer this timely.

    Thank you all.

      Jack Cao - Reply

      Well, I would think that it is only fair to remain as a member of TLC if I continuously use its product. There is no disguise on the membership, unlike many other MLM companies where they charge you for membership fees without any product tied in.

      As for the compensation plan, I think it is fair because on the first tier, whenever some one buys a product through your given website, you make a 50% commission. The binary compensation plan is basically a bonus.

      Hope this helps!

      Cheers!

    You only need to buy a product or products at a certain level if you would like to receive any money from your sells or the people under you. You are not kicked out if you don’t order. You’re website and everything stays intact.

I am so sorry for the “bad” experiences others have had. I had some also; still having some, but I understand that this happens with new business’. They are new to the US. Growing pangs is what I call it. This company is experiencing some massive growth at a very rapid pace. It is not all about money, but I am making more money from this company than all my past business experiences. It is still blowing my mind! My change has finally come! Hats off to Total Life Changes!

Jack Cao this is the most wonderful unbiased review I’ve ever read. Thanks lots

Total Life Changes is becoming a terrible waste of time. I cannot ever get the corporate office to answer any phone calls regarding tracking of products. Currently I have six customers pissed off because they can’t get the product shipped to them after paying over $107 for shipping/taxes/product of resolution. There isn’t anything that states it’s on back order. All mailboxes for the corporate number are “Full”. Any suggestions/

I can’t believe you’ll took money out of my account in I didn’t order nothing, all I’m asking is for you to put my money back in my account asap or my bank is gonna do a fraud papers on you all.

In reference to not having health benefits regarding products. The company can’t make health claims about their products.

I joined TLC just to get product. After 40 days of not receiving it and getting charged a second time (auto ship) I requested a refund and full cancellation. 3 weeks later, they send me product. I reported this to BBB and got email response that they would at the least refund me for my second auto ship. Low and behold, I received no refund and today in the mail I received more product. TLC has by far the worse customer service in the entire industry. It’s impossible to cancel and receive a refund. Live and learn I guess!!

    Kuntry - Reply

    The same exact thing is happening to me. When I first joined it took forever to get product. I’ve been trying to cancel since May of 2015 and got charged again in Dec. All I get is robotic responses. All I want is my money back for the tea I didn’t request. Good luck with the worst customer service on the planet!!!!

I recently joined this MLM opportunity. I believe that once I receive my tea, that it will sell itself. My wife was my first customer. I seen the product work. My only hang up is the time I have been waiting to receive my total shipment. The business opportunity has gotten off to a slow start, but the testimony I read above, ensures me that better days are ahead.

I actually have also joined many MLM companies over the years and lost a lot of money. I came across Total life Changes as a friend had recommended the tea. I was not looking for a business opportunity, however I tried the tea and absolutely loved the product. I just happened to post something on Facebook about how great I thought the tea was and that I had lost 2kg in a week, I was bombarded with people wanting to try it. This led me to join the business and in a couple of months I have made more money with TLC than I did from all the combined companies I had joined previously. I believe there is no selling needed if you use these products. I am so happy I came across this company. I do agree that it is not for everyone, however I do believe that if you have great products you just can recommend and not actually sell.

    I agree with you Beverly these products are amazing and they actually work. All I have to do is tell MY results (testimonies) and I get people hitting me up all the time asking questions. Word of mouth is everything and the companies name says it all… TOTAL LIFE CHANGES!!!
