Resurrecting the Good Guys

Freedom of Speech (an’ all that good stuff)

In 2010 Rick Keene decided to get motivated and so attended a seminar. One of the speakers, Stephen Pierce, motivated him so much he forked out $10,000 for his MRMI Internet Marketing Consulting program, the Gold package no less. To cut a long story short, it didn’t work out and Rick says he received very little of what was promised to him when he handed over his hard earned cash. It’s not surprising really as Stephen Pierce has got a long history of not living up to the promises he makes:

Nobody at Stephen Pierce International seemed able, or inclined to help, so he set up a web site (aptly named to warn others of his experience. It was also a place where other people who felt they had been ripped off by Stephen Pierce could go and vent their spleen and go they did.

Recently Rick was served with a lawsuit by Stephen Pierce’s lawyers and his site has disappeared from the internet. I believe that it is the public interest that the contents of Rick’s site should be available so what I’ve done is go to Google cache and resurrect it. You can find the pages in the menu above and on the right.

A much more eloquent version of this story can be found on the Saltydroid’s website:

  1. I have refrained from saying anything negative about Mr. Pierce as much as I could. But I was invited here to share my thoughts about some things that I know in reference to Mr. Pierce.

    I worked with Stephen Pierce for 2 years and I at first things seemed to be fine. But it was after this that I began to learn WHO he really was and is: I Greatly disturbed by the way he refused to pay his affiliates for over 8 months and the way people who worked for him in his office & affiliates were being bullied to be keep quiet.

    His behavior is beyond words!! But the good news is that he will soon have to face the people he has hurt. This could have all turned out fine had Mr. Pierce really been like he said he was concerned about people. I see now he was just out for himself. I genuinely thought he was really trying to help people and I was Really hurt when I found he wasn’t.

    All I can do is pray for him and hope he will turn his life around and make things right with the HUGE amount of people he’s hurt.

    • Ivan thank you very much for taking the time to come over and tell us about your experience with Stephen Pierce.

      I have taken the liberty of pasting your comment into Saltydroid’s site as he has a much wider reach than my little blog here.

    • Well you can, and I suppose, should pray for Mr. Pierce. But that isn’t actually all you can do.

      I’m of the opinion that Mr. Pierce probably isn’t actually going to see the error of his ways ever.

      And even if I’m incorrect about that, I feel you have a duty to help protect others from getting involved with Mr. Pierce not just be sharing you story (thank you for that btw) but also by joining the lawsuit against him.

      Your experience with Mr. Pierce may have been unique to you, but I can assure you, many other people have been hurt badly by not just Mr. Pierce but by many others that do “business” in a manner almost exactly the same as the way Mr. Pierce does it.

      They will not stop ever unless people begin to speak up and hold them accountable for their misdeeds.

      There’s a quote that goes here that I’m pasting in:
      “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”
      Wikipedia has dispute as to the source of that quote. I mention that trivia only because, just below it on the page there’s IMHO an even better quote whose source is verified:

      “When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.” — from Thoughts on the Cause of Present Discontents by Burke

      Furry cows moo and decompress.

    • I just went; awesome. The onion rings really are good and the place makes me wish they knew me by name. I must inform y’all though, especially Mr. FWHITW, that I have found the best onion rings in the world. I just feel like I would be disrespecting you if I didn’t at least tell you about them. If you’re ever in Dallas seek out a place called Offshore’s Nextdoor. They’re served with habanero ranch.

  2. It is worth mentioning again that Stephen Pierce (and I hope his affiliates and sponsors like Get Motivated) are about to be sued on behalf of individuals who believe they were defrauded by “business opportunity” scams perpetrated by Pierce.

    If you believe you were the victim of a Stephen Pierce scam, you should immediately contact Attorney Alan Rosenberg with the law firm of Chamblee, Ryan, Kershaw & Anderson, P.C. Dallas There is no out of pocket cost to be represented.

    I speak as a former customer who tried to get my money back for months. One employee went to bat for me and got it done. Otherwise i would still be out the #10,000 i paid him for a cheap notebook that arrived 3 months late, substantially after the 3 day refund period has lapsed. That detail was not a problem for Stephen Pierce or his attorney Kevin Vela. They both thought I should just go away. I didn’t and I am not going away now!

    • Mary Shelley’s life (and even that of her parents and grandparents) would be a very interesting topic of discussion. Her forbears led a bohemian lifestyle, and Mary herself suffered some almost unbearable tragedies including the loss of a child shortly before (after?) her husband’s death in a boating accident.

  5. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but
    it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without
    my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being ripped
    off? I’d certainly appreciate it.
