Facebook Shuts down Empower Network

Wow, so I woke up this morning to learn that Facebook has at least temporarily wiped out all unique affiliate links used to promote Empower Network. Apparently we are growing at such an alarming rate, that even the almighty king of the social network stratosphere, FACEBOOK, couldn’t even handle the volume of material that is being put out there. Fear not good people of Oz, as this is actually a good thing and as one of our fearless leaders David Wood put it best, “Move fast, and break things” has ALWAYS been our motto (or wait, isn’t that actually Facebook’s motto)…

Facebook - move fast and break things

Facebook - move fast and break things

So from the looks of it, Facebook sees that Empower Network is moving down a very familiar path of its own. Maybe its simply a rite of passage, their way of hazing us into the powerful social network. All kidding aside, it truly is remarkable what we here at Empower Network have done in just a few short months…What if you had the incredible opportunity to join Facebook or Microsoft in the infancy of their launch to superstardom?!
If you aren’t already in Empower Network, that is the position you are in right now…

So just… GET IN NOW!

In just 9 months:

Over $10 Million in commissions earned
Over 40,000 Affiliates

And the goal laid out by one of the founders of Empower Network, David Wood, is that by our “Fighting the Forces of Evil” event in San Diego this September, we will help one new person every 24 hours become a $30,000 a month earner.

Because we want to create a new $30,000 per month earner
every 24 hours, does that guarantee that you’ll make $1,000
a day?

Of course not.

I’m not sure if you want to make $1,000 a day.

You might not want to get that much money, that fast…

…maybe you don’t believe it can happen for you in 60 days.

The reality? You can see our average earnings, by clicking here

Who makes $30,000 a month in 60 days?

It’s not everyone.

It’s people who are ready to take action.

It’s the visionaries on our list who have a vision, and won’t
be stopped – no matter the obstacle.

It’s the people out there, like Cristina Munoz,
who refuses to allow pain and suffering to stop
them from achieving their goals.

It’s the VISIONARIES like Tracey Walker,
who just had her first $30,000 month, ever,
and is already on track to earn more than
$40,000 this month.

It’s BADASSES like Tony Rush, who joined
our vision on the brink of burnout, and this
month has already earned over $39,000.

It’s gangsters like Mack Zidan, who dropped
out of high school to do home business, and
got handed $12,000 on stage in Atlanta.

It’s guys like Chuck Marshall, who was willing
to listen to coaching, and now this month, has
already earned over $40,000 in commissions.

It’s people like YOU, who STILL, after all your
pain, REFUSE to give in, and are still standing
strong, FIGHTING, and are willing…

…right now:


Click here and get started with the best team ever.
(you can start for as little as $25.)

P.S. After you enroll immediately, you’ll be directed
to watch another video that will show you how to
earn 4 times the commissions… it’s awesome.

Really?! : Chick-fil-A Breaks World Sales Record After Hateful Attacks

Crowds line up to support Chick-fil-A.

Crowds line up to support Chick-fil-A.

I really shouldn’t be too surprised, but the ridiculous views of so many actually do continue to amaze me. Recently, the CEO of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy, made a statement in support of traditional marriage that came under heavy scrutiny. Now, I don’t care that Mr. Cathy is opposed to same-sex marriage because he believes that GOD said it was a sin. I really don’t care whether Chick-fil-A sells a billion chicken sandwiches tomorrow or zero. Whether you believe in God without a shadow of a doubt, are quite unsure of his existence, or completely deny any sort of deity at all, is completely up to you. What I am absolutely floored by however, is the fact that there are a lot of people out there who apparently believe that God is somewhere pulling strings in favor of the fast food chain so they can prosper to show how horrible gay marriage is…

So let me get this straight (no pun intended…ok maybe a little): So there is an “All-powerful and ever loving being” who cares about proving how horrible it is for a gay couple to wed, but that same being sits idly by while wars are waged, innocent children starve, are beaten to death, raped, and oodles of people die horrible deaths every single day?! Yeah that sounds about right…If of course you are a brainwashed sheep who has no common sense or ability to reason in a logical way. But I guess its true, common sense isn’t all that common is it?

I could go on forever and argue this seemingly simple point until I’m blue in the face, but if you truly believe in such a ridiculous notion then its probably a lost cause. Just read this article below and the comments that follow and you tell me if they are reasonable or not…

This is just too powerful to not share with you…from Empower Network badass Justin Verrengia…


I learned this acronym in a Robert Kiyosaki book…Bruce Lee

…and it really resonated with me.


With laser focus one can…

…collapse time frames…

…hitting your targets at God speed.

This is how I went from struggling online…

…to becoming a top income earner 30 days later.

Take for example this profound video…

…I filmed observing these Costa Rican ants in my yard:

These ants are a remarkable example of what it means to…


How is it some people can accomplish more productivity…

…in 1 day then another can do all month?

It all boils down to F.O.C.U.S.

When you decide to stop playing games…

…and go ALL-IN…

…that’s when the magic begins my friend.

Take for example…

…people like Cristina Munoz, who always had to work 14-16 hours a day…

…are earning MORE working 2 hours a day here…

…than they have in more than 20 years in the profession…

Or take a hippie dude like myself… who almost drowned last month…

…having break throughs for the 1st time in my entire life.

This month, I have ALREADY earned over $25,000 with Empower Network.

Just LAST MONTH, I only earned $7,000 or so…

…my income more than TRIPLED in 30 days.

SERIOUSLY – when you hear this…

…you’ll know why 1,000 piled onto the conference line last night.

And why a whole army of people ended the call in tears.

Listen to the whole thing.

There isn’t a single minute in this call I wouldn’t listen to 10 more times.

When you hear it – you’ll know exactly why I say that!

“The DEAD simple 6-figure formula…

…plus the UGLY truth of what doesn’t work and is keeping you broke”

Dial in number: (712) 432-0990
Secret Code: 260326#

Follow the 5 steps outlined in this call…

…it’s the FASTEST way to 6-figures, period.

A couple of quick, yet IMPORTANT notes from the ‘Empower Hour’ call:

Hotel rooms at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel ARE available.

We did sell out, but we opened more up (there are hundreds available, but they will go fast!).

Friday and Saturday are available ONLY.

If you book your room and try to include Thursday and/or Sunday…

…it will reject the reservation.

Go here and reserve your room for Friday and Saturday NOW:

(obviously, get your ticket to San Diego in your back office if you don’t have it right now)

If you are NOT already in… GET IN!

We are planning a really “hot” all expenses paid leaders day… and dinner on a yacht…

…for the Thursday right before the event.

If you want to hang out with us… be treated like royalty…

…and be a part of the ‘vision of the company‘ leadership discussion…

…with David Wood, David Sharpe, myself and the other leaders…

…place in the top 25 of the affiliate contest and be there with us.

It will be the time of your life – guaranteed. Click Here for details

David Wood is doing a live stream tomorrow night… from 8pm EST – 10pm EST…

…on the front of the Empower blog.

He’ll have several leaders and big name affiliates on…

…talking about how they’re making…

…$30,000, $40,000 and $50,000 a month. (Don’t miss this – trust me :)

Get ALL-IN. (I’m not kidding – now is the time)

Let’s do this.
Who’s “ALL IN?”

Critic of NBC has Twitter account suspended after network complains

Guy Adams works as a writer for The Independent, a national newspaper in Great Britain. He lives in Los Angeles. Throughout the Olympics, he’s taken to Twitter and ripped NBC repeatedly for its coverage of the Games in America.

Namely, he’s criticized the network’s reliance on using tape delays, a frustration shared by millions of viewers.

Only in a marriage of old media and social media, Guy Adams no longer has a Twitter account. It was suspended Tuesday, and both NBC and Twitter ought to be humiliated by their thin-skinned, heavy-handed, and essentially pointless behavior.

Guy Adams (Mashable)

Guy Adams (Mashable)

Adams was no doubt relentless in his tweets.

“Am I alone in wondering why NBColympics think its [sic] acceptable to pretend this road race is being broadcast live?” he wrote in one.

“Matt Lauer: ‘Madagascar, a location indelibly associated with a couple of recent animated movies,’” he mocked on another.

Adams encouraged Lauer “to shut up” and called out Gary Zenkel, the president of NBC Olympics, as the “moronic exec behind the time delay.” And he said Zenkel should be fired.

That’s essentially how Twitter works, of course. It can be profane, reactionary, and often ridiculous. It breeds all sorts of over-the-top anger, outrageous talk, and off-the-handle opinions.

Adams said in a column for The Independent that Twitter claimed he crossed the line by tweeting out Zenkel’s corporate email address and encouraging his followers to contact the executive directly.

The email address is easily identifiable, common with how thousands of NBC/Univision employees’ email addresses are determined.

Twitter soon suspended Adams’ account, he said. In a story he wrote in The Independent, Adams wrote that after filing an article critical of NBC’s coverage, he checked his Twitter account only to find it had been suspended. When he inquired why, he received the following response: “Your Twitter account has been suspended for posting an individual’s private information such as private email address.”

With that, the account was gone.

And a controversy was born.

Adams said he emailed Rachel Bremer, Twitter’s head of European PR, to dispute that he broke Twitter’s rules. The email address Adams tweeted wasn’t a private address belonging to Zenkel, Adams wrote, but a corporate one attainable to anyone with access to Google.

“It’s no more ‘private’ than the address I’m emailing you from right now,” Adams wrote Bremer. “Either way, [it's] quite worrying that NBC, whose parent company are an Olympic sponsor, are apparently trying (and, in this case, succeeding) in shutting down the Twitter accounts of journalists who are critical of their Olympic coverage.”

The decision, as expected, has gone over poorly on the website, where the freedom to express one’s opinions, especially against high-ranking executives of multinational corporations, is highly valued.

Which makes the decision a colossal mistake. You could argue forever whether Zenkel’s corporate email is really “private.”

You’d have to be a trusting soul to think Twitter really cared.

The issue here is that NBC and Twitter formed a corporate “partnership” for the London Games “to bring Olympic coverage and social conversation to viewers everywhere,” according to a pre-Games news release. “During the games, Twitter is using its Olympics events page to highlight insiders’ views, and to encourage people to watch NBC’s on-air and online coverage.”

So, first, they team up and then coincidentally one of the network’s most relentless critics gets booted from the website? Earlier this year, film director Spike Lee tweeted what turned out to be an incorrect home address for George Zimmerman, the accused killer of Trayvon Martin. Twitter didn’t suspend Lee’s account

The Independent’s deputy managing editor, Archie Bland, confirmed that Adams’ account was suspended for mentioning the email address. Bland tweeted himself that it’s “reasonable to ask whether the suspension also had to do with his criticism of NBC’s coverage of the Games and whether they’d usually take the same step.”

Twitter has yet to respond for comment. NBC released a statement confirming that it contacted Twitter.

“We filed a complaint with Twitter because a user tweeted the personal information of one of our executives,” the network said. “According to Twitter, this is a violation of their privacy policy. Twitter alone levies discipline.”

On the rank of world transgression, some snarky journalist losing his tweeting privileges is incredibly low. This isn’t even a First Amendment issue. The government isn’t trying to silence the public.

This is a public-relations gaffe, and it’s hard to imagine how Twitter didn’t see it coming.

First, the account suspension directed far more attention to Adams’ criticism than if he had simply been ignored. Second, it’s an embarrassment for Zenkel. He now looks like some overly sensitive suit.

Twitter is what Twitter is – most people get slammed, at some point, on that website. The head of NBC Olympics not only should’ve expected the criticism, he should now expect a great deal more of it.

What Adams ranted about hardly mattered. Yes, the tape delay was frustrating. The same for the network’s often poor performing online streams.

The American viewing public was tuning in at night in record numbers anyway. That was proof NBC’s old formula could not only survive in today’s instant information age, it could thrive.

Adams was losing. NBC was winning.

Until Twitter suspended an account and the story got reversed, making a villain out of its partner and a social media hero out of the partner’s critic.

It’s one more social media casualty in an Olympics full of them.

Stewart and Colbert Extend Comedy Central Contracts

Comedy Central
has quietly locked in the two pillars of its late-night programming with the announcement Wednesday that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have extended their contracts with the network.

Comedy Central released a brief statement confirming that Mr. Stewart, who hosts “The Daily Show,” the perennial Emmy-winner and television’s top-rated late-night show, will remain through mid-2015, adding another two years to his contract.

Mr. Colbert, who like Mr. Stewart had increased his ratings this season among the younger viewers most sought by advertisers, had agreed to remain on Comedy Central at least through the end of 2014, which was also a two-year extension.

The deals indicate that Mr. Stewart, whose show is the most watched of all late-night programming among viewers from the ages of 18 to 49, has no plans to step away soon and also takes Mr. Colbert off the market for at least two more years.

Mr. Stewart has been so successful at Comedy Central that people close to him say they believe there is no longer any threat that he will be lured by another television outlet. It is only a question of how long he wants to continue working on a nightly program.

Mr. Colbert could have been the object of some interest to other television destinations, so his decision to lock himself into the successor show behind Mr. Stewart’s is significant for Comedy Central.

Among the competition in late-night comedy shows, Mr. Stewart is up 10 percent — and Mr. Colbert 14 percent — among 18- to 49-year-old viewers over the 2010-11 television season; Mr. Stewart and Mr. Colbert rank first and fourth over all in that category. Every other late-night comedy show is down in that category over a year ago.
