QNet has completed 15 years of scamming the world today. If for 15 years they have managed to pull the wool over the eyes of every government in the world, every authority, every court and about 9 million people and yet haven’t got convicted of any wrong doing anywhere in the world then I think we can safely call this company the Greatest Scam ever! And I think they deserve a standing ovation for doing so!!
Commendable don’t you think or maybe, just maybe its not a scam after all.
The dictionary describes a scam as “a fraudulent scheme, especially for making a quick profit”. I think at least the dictionary meaning of a scam doesn’t any longer apply to QNet for neither is it a “scheme” but a solid business plan nor is it here to make a quick profit because for those of you who didn’t know, its QNet’s 15th Birthday today! If they were here to make a quick profit and run then don’t you think 15 years is a long time to wait before making a run for it. And by the way they are still not showing any signs of running away, in fact, all signs to the contrary, they seem to be wanting to stay here and continue the scam for a few decades more.
But why do some people think of or accuse QNet of being a scam?
The fact that QNet is labeled as a scam (by a few) is largely a function of the industry it is part of. Network Marketing from its inception has been under the scanner as like any other new industry it threatens an existing establishment. Who does Network Marketing really threaten though? The very people who are making the noise of course, which is why they make the noise! As an industry all Network Marketing does, is that it cuts out the spends on Marketing, Advertising & Distribution and gives that same money to its distributors or representatives. Therefore the one existing industry that really feels threatened by Network Marketing is the Media as their only line of revenue is advertising revenue and when Network Marketing becomes bigger and bigger it will eventually start impacting the revenues of the media houses. So, if you were a media mogul or boss, what would you tell your reporters… simple, don’t just let the industry or the future players survive… make sure you paint a picture that convinces ordinary people of the industry and its players as a scam! At the end of the day, it is an industry that lets ordinary people create extra ordinary wealth by ensuring that instead of a few people (read media houses, corporate honchos, big distributors /retailers) getting very rich, a lot of people (read ‘us’) get a little rich. And within this industry, QNet in just 15 years has become the fastest growing company oops fastest growing scam in the world! I can bet, if QNet had been retailing these very products out of supermarkets and spending a lot of money on advertising its brand in newspapers and television, then by now they would have probably been hailed as a corporate icon instead of a scam. If I were you, I would think of QNet as the modern day Robin Hood!!!
Personally if you ask me, I think its just because QNet is a bit ahead of its time and is beyond the comprehension of these people who want to therefore label it a scam. So if you don’t understand something, just call it a scam. History is witness that most major inventions were initially thought of as scams or frauds and their inventors labeled as scammers or lunatics or crackpots. Some were shunned, some were ridiculed, some were persecuted and some were burnt. But today, they are all hailed as geniuses who changed the course of history. Because eventually, true creativity can only be achieved if you take your mind to limits that are beyond the ordinary visible extremes. Now these extremes might appear to be ridiculous to some (in authority or in media). Thus it becomes a test of your nerves and ultimately what you are made of to pursue your idea or to give it up. After all, Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature. So if someone today finds a cure for cancer, the chances are that they will also be labeled as scams or frauds till enough people actually get cured. Similarly, because QNet has found a cure for financial cancer, it too gets labeled as a scam till enough people actually get cured!
Another possible reason why QNet gets labeled (by a few) as a scam is because the very proposition it purports is a bit ridiculous for most people. Financial Freedom. Especially ridiculous for the people who are financially free to let others join that exclusive club. Its like apartheid or segregation or discrimination… whatever you may want to call it, its an attempt by the minority to keep out the majority. But a few morons who do not listen will still go out, find a rooftop and will keep shouting that its possible till the ridiculous dream becomes a reality. All great things invented and achieved in history have been the contribution of these ‘morons’. Let me describe a few of these morons…
Morons are the ones who don’t want to wake up one day, look back and regret…
Morons are the rule amenders… the game changers… the industry shapers…
Morons are the lesser mortals who dare to dream…
Let’s take a short walk back into time and meet the ones who got ridiculed, who got challenged but who were moronic enough to follow a dream…
The man who put a lot of light in our lives. Thomas Alva Edison.
The man who went about connecting people. Alexander Graham Bell.
The man who ushered in the Industrial Era. Henry Ford.
The men who gave us wings to explore the world. Wright Brothers.
The man who put a computer in every house. Bill Gates.
The man who created a computer for the rest of us. Steve Jobs.
The man who challenged every existing rule of business. Richard Branson.
The man who gave us a free India. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.
The list is endless but the common thread amongst all these people was that these were the people who were plain and simple morons who challenged convention, broke conventional boundaries and explored beyond the ordinary and eventually changed the course of history and shaped the future.
Two such morons 15 years back took upon themselves to change things around in the world a bit and created a company called QNet. And as these morons celebrate the 15th Birthday of their dream, they continue to touch a few more lives and a few more hearts around the world and I know they will not rest till they have touched a billion hearts… oops again, scammed a billion hearts.
So here’s raising a toast to the longest running scam in history. May this scam continue forever. And as I write this today and get a little philosophical and glassy eyed at this poignant moment, I take a quote from Steve Jobs because I think that it best describes the people who have created this crazy dream and morons like us who continue to live and work for this dream called QNet:
“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” — Steve Jobs
To the two crazy ones… Dato Sri Vijay Eswaran & Japadas Bismark… Happy Birthday!
