6.  How do I switch or change to from another IBO to your company?

We are so glad that you would like to join our team! We are always looking to add new talent. Here are a few things to consider:

a.  Log into your dashboard and go to your portal under “My Info” select “Drop/Change IBO” the click on “Request to move to the

     following IBO”. Put in our IB ID 1013618 and click the search button then submit. Once we receive your request we will accept it and      you will need to go back to  the same page and sign the agreements. Once agreements are signed, we will finalize your move and send     you a welcome letter. If you have, then your current IBO will have to release you first and then you can follow the steps to join.

b. Are you currently enrolled in a certification course?  If you have, then your current IBO will have to release you first and then you can

    follow the steps to join. We will immediately re-enroll you into the course that you are in.

c. Are you actively servicing a client? If you have, then your current IBO will have to release you first and then you can follow the steps to

    join. Once you have joined, we will send a request to reactivate your SOW. It may take several days for this to complete.

d. Is your IBO not responding to you? If they are not responding to you at all, we can reach out on your behalf to see if they will respond.

    Please email us your name, CSP ID, name of your IBO and an email address for your IBO to info@victoriastaffing.com. If they don’t, then

    you can go to Arise legal and ask them to investigate this IBO. If this IBO does not respond to Arise, they may be deactivated.
