Well...it's been One Day since The Big News... Some thoughts...BOTH Good and Bad... GOOD: The Florida AG did look at ASD approximately 6 months ago (per the conference call info Yesterday), and gave ASD the Green Light. BAD: The US AG (In Washington DC) Action...it typically doesn't take just One Individual or One Complaint to draw the Feds into Putting a Stop to a Corporation...there must have been quite a large number of Complaints against ASD. This is a Major Action to Freeze the Assets of a Corporation...to justify this kind of action there must have been enough of a "Complaint Quantity Threshold" to bring the Feds from Washington to Florida and take this action. GOOD: Andy. No record of being a "Scammer". Good history as a Successful Businessman. Good Reputation overall and in the Community. BAD: Being a good person with good intentions doesn't always mean having a business model that will "Fly". The Feds are going to "Open the Financial Books", and they may ask "Where's the money coming from to pay these rebates." We will find out soon. GOOD: The websites, before yesterday, are finally up and fast. Almost fully functioning. It took 2 weeks to "Upgrade" the sites (ASD and LaFuente). BAD: Iggy's not convinced that the websites were "down" solely due to IT "Upgrades"...My suspicion is that the 2 weeks "downtime" may have something to do with this Attorney General Investigations. It's a simple suspicion without proof either way based on this information I have: Andy did meet up with the Attorney General last week as well as the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (http://doacs.state.fl.us/). I was told this by the CFO of ASD on Thursday - the day before THE DAY. GOOD: ASD has retained Attorneys who are "MLM" attorneys - they specialize in the business. They are reviewing and Learning ASD's Unique Business Model and hopefully will be able to explain adequately the Legitimacy of ASD to the US AG. BAD: I will be very surprised if this Investigation is resolved by this coming week and the websites up again. It will be a pleasant surprise, but still surprised. Realistically it may take weeks to months to Conclude this type of investigation when you're dealing with the Government. Afterall, the ASD Attorneys are "Still trying to learn the business" before they will even make a statement (unless they can cram it all in like cramming for a test the night before the Finals). Final Thought: Even if this doesn't pan out and ASD is never revived... You know what? It may be embarrassing, humiliating, and downright depressing (as well as suffering a temporary financial setback for some)... But it's OK...it's a simple "BLIP" in our lives...and life itself is so much more than that. Success AND Failure is what makes up life...I don't know of anyone who's never failed in some venture or investment in their lives...just take a look at the US Stock Market! Obstacles in life are simply opportunities to learn, overcome, and grow. And one day when we look back at all of this...we may realize that the Destination may not be all that important after all...but it's the Friendships we've made along the Journey was really what counts. Iggy.
