    heard this from current distributor in my area - 1099 is a joke at nuva. you have no autonomy at all. cant carry addl non-competiting lines. commissions are lowest in industry. forced to double the size of your sales force (nuva will loan you the money - ouch) and take it directly from your check. every employee must attend nsm and industry mtgs regardless of expense. no benefits but all the bullshit redtape of being direct. good luck getting inventory. there are plenty of other opportunities to rep a good line and maintain some independence. proceed with caution.

    Get a buddy at the morgue to get all the Coroent XL's from the cadavers. Slip him a few bones to cut them out for you.

    It's not a human body part with laws against taking them. It's a hunk of plastic. Rebag'em and Re-sell 'em.

    If you're resourceful you've been saving the old packaging as the new items were used over the years.


    ""proceed with caution"""....???.....you're hinting at there's oversight in this realm. You made me laugh.
