I had to review a company that is creating a stir on many social media sites with it’s members spamming groups and everyone they’ve friended. TBA2 is seemingly everywhere! So who are they and what’s with this $25 MLM? I’ve looked into this company as well as their comp plan and rather than pick it apart piece by piece, I’ll talk about the important things.
First, here are their claims:

TBA2 or “The Bold Approach 2” is owned by TBA out of Trussville, Alabama. TBA has a “B” rating with the Better Business Bureau and has 11 complaints filed in the last 36 months, that’s not bad and should make you feel good about how they do business. TBA is owned by Fred Fitts touted in promotional video’s as a speaker, trainer and author. I can’t tell you much about Mr. Fitts as my research didn’t really turn much of anything up either positive, negative or in between. TBA is a company that is world wide and is very similar to TBA2. The biggest difference being the start up costs and monthly fee’s. TBA 2 is being marketed as bringing back simplicity to the MLM industry. Yes this is a simple business model with a simple comp plan but is simple best?
The highest paying MLM companies aren’t using a basic com plan like TBA2 is using. Simple doesn’t mean that everyone is going to make money either, so don’t be fooled by simplicity. The top producers will make most of the money, this isn’t any different that any other MLM or for that matter any other business in general In every business just a few people make the big bucks, that’s life, period. No different than in any other business on earth.
TBA2 is essentially a program where you pay out $25 and you receive $5 back for each person you’ve signed up. The product is a self development ebook by Fred Fitts. I’ve never read this ebook so I can’t attest to it’s value, but self development is important in everyone’s life. People should work to become better people, better husbands, better wives, parents, examples, etc. My personal recommendation as a first read self development book is the Bible, because when you break it down all self development books are derived from it in one way or another. In the future I plan to post a list of my recommended reading for building your business.
TBA2 also boasts about fast money, everyone is at the same level, no legs, no cycles, no this, no that, easy, easy, easy…. Ok, let’s get real for a minute. Easy? Nothing worth while is easy. Do you really think that you can build a six figure income the easy way? It takes work to make six figures no matter what business you are in so don’t think that you’ll ever find an easy way of doing it.
Everyone is on the same level? Ok, I get it and understand it however it’s a communist way of thinking and I don’t mean that negatively. Communism was designed so that everyone had the same level of status and we all know how well that worked for the Soviets. In my experience having a goal is how most folks become motivated and let’s face it, people like recognition. That’s why a company can give a person a “title” in stead of a raise in salary and that person is happy!
So when you initially look at TBA2 it looks like a great concept, but when an experienced network marketer digs into it to uncover the nuts and bolts, is it a business that is going to attract very many if any, professional network marketers. The real test of a great opportunity is to look around and see if it’s attracted any of the heavy hitters of the MLM industry. I’d like to see a few 6 and 7 figure earners from other companies who have jumped on board with TBA2 because I question whether this is a business that can and will create the residual wealth being claimed. This isn’t to say that you can’t make money with TBA2 because it does look like you could make some money.
My conclusion is that TBA2 is a simple business with a simple compensation plan but making a large residual income is not as easy as claimed. If you’ve never been involved in MLM before then TBA2 might be a fit for you, but if you’ve had some experience you should take a deeper look and make certain that this is exactly what it is that you are looking to build.
