What some of you guys are saying makes sense regarding the "automated" part of a business, and the "product" part of it as well. Hence why the improvements have been worked on behind the scenes for the past few months. The new model being launched in 3 weeks has taken all of this into consideration.
1. Automation - like Tony said, there is no such system that does absolutely everything for you. You have to do something and in PAS we do have to drive traffic to the site. There is leverage, however, as other people do what normally in other DS companies you as the owner have to do. You can't deny that the actual marketing plan is brilliant.
2. Physical Product - this is the most controversial subject about PAS. However, no longer will it be. There is a real product, a physical product developed for the new system. I don't have all the details yet, but it will be some sort of education product involving a few of the folks who came out on "The Secret", and other big names that everyone recognizes.
3. Marketing Strategy - another big problem with PAS has been the inneffectiveness of adpacks. Again, these have been completely redesigned and the new system has the most advanced marketing system I've ever heard of which includes a wide variety of offline advertising including radio, and possibly... I don't know this for sure yet, but we may have celebrity endorsments. Better yet, these new adpacks are designed to have a limit on how many people can be a part of them (this was the major flaw of the current adpacks).
Basically what the Mega Wealth Group (lead by Simon Johansson and Harmony Thiessen) has been doing ever since they got associated with PAS is looking at the "flaws" of the system and improving them. It started with new websites last year to now the complete makeover of the system. They created a PAS that has no controversies and will leave no doubts in anyone's mind about what they're buying, what they're selling, and the money they're making.
So no, there won't be people "hurt" because of what's happening. To the contrary, many people are now hurt and they won't be anymore once the new model is launched simply because we now are increasing the opportunity for anyone to make an income from home.
I will say this one last time. The new system will be implemented whether PAS "survives" the SEC or not. If the outcome is negative for PAS, then the only one who will take the hit will be Bill O (although he has many loyal friends like myself and we will support him and assist him in whatever he needs). Every PAS business owner will simply merge into the new system and in approx. 3 weeks everyone will be in business again no matter what.
Again, this is exciting times. I have already made $100K this year with PAS and I expect to tripple that next year with the new improved business model.
