AdvisoryCloud Review

When I first wrote an AdviosryCloud review, the company had recently changed its name from ExecRanks to AdvisoryCloud. Why would a company that had spent time and money building a brand, change that name and run away from that brand? Because according to every legitimate advisory cloud review I ever read, the company is a dumpster fire. When I wrote this my first post on these Bozos, there were only reviews available under the ExecRanks name. Now the AdvisoryCloud reviews are in. AdvisoryCloud Review on Trust Pilot Joel oskin 1 review 1 star: Bad Aug 11, 2019 Title: Very poor experience and unprofessional Very poor experience with a couple of their recruiters who reached out to me. The first introduction was a complete “no show” on a call that was confirmed. I emailed the person and never heard back. The second contact was from another recruiter a few days after. No acknowledgement when I mentioned my prior experience, just wanted to move forward with their process. After the first call I was bombarded with calendar invites daily for the next meeting despite the fact I had requested on “four” separate occasions that I had some pressing priorities and “I would get back to them in a few days”. They did...

Communiclique’s Andy Powers Thinks He’s Tinkerbell

Communiclique (AKA Clique, CliqueAPI) is dead. A judge declared it so (see post). Like the story of Peter Pan, Communiclique was always a fantasy story. Now, that the story has ended, Andy Powers keeps putting out press releases in an attempt to convince potential investors that Communiclique exists and Andy is a businessman instead of a common criminal. Remember that part of Peter Pan where Peter implores anyone who will listen to declare their belief in fairies? That was the only way to bring Tinkerbell to come back to life. Andy Powers thinks he's Tinkerbell and if he keeps asking for applause his company will not die and he will not find himself in Prison. Andy thinks he's a Fairy and he needs an audience to show they believe in fairies. Now before I go on, I want to give a message to Andy Powers children's classmates. I hear that you are teasing his kids mercilessly because of the crimes of the father. I know you kids are reading this. Please lay off. The Powers kids are not guilty of the crimes of the father. In fact, they are innocent victims. Help them don't hurt them. Show that you have compassion. Now...

Communiclique Data Details

Before Communiclique was exposed as a giant Ponzi scheme, the company Andy Powers and Ram Reddy were telling anyone who would listen that it was a Billion Dollar Unicorn. Now we know it is practically worthless. A group of investors recently won a judgment to put the company in receivership. The Bankruptcy lawsuit shed light on the murky details of this company (first story on this dumpster fire company and Andy Powers here) Here are just a few facts recently made public thanks to the bankruptcy proceedings. The Cap Table and how much each investor would have realized if the company exited at a billion dollar valuation.

DCTech Startup Crime Update

It's that time again for the DCTech Startup Crime Update. Lots of little movement with the Crooks and Criminals of DCTech but not enough to warrant a single subject blog and therefore I'm going to provide a general DCTech Startup Crime Update on multiple happenings around DCTech. DCTech Startup Crime Update -Existing Projects Andy Powers and Communiclique (Clique, CliqueAPI) - Every month that Andy doesn't live rent-free on the federally funded 3 hots and a cot program, costs his investors a ton of evaporating capital including the $35 thousand per month rent on his home (see home and court details).  On Monday 4/29, Andy Power's lawyer showed up just prior to the 4 PM deadline with the data to prove that the company was a legitimate business. The invoices submitted were obviously fraudulent...

Retail Tectonic Shifts and a few Yuks

Retail Tectonic Shifts? Is Mr. Cranky going to talk about what's happening in Germany? No that's Teutonic Shifts.  This is the kind of shirt that takes place when the earth's floating tectonic plates mash together and shake the world. Shit is happening in retail. Some of it good. Most of it bad. In this post, true to form, Mr. Cranky briefly touches on the good but will hammer home the bad effects of retail tectonic shifts. Amazon - Retail Tectonic Shifts Amazon - The Good: Have a stupid idea in your head and search it on Amazon and there it is...

Scam Alert: ExecMagic

Warning! Warning! Warning! ExecMagic is another company, much like AdvisoryCloud, which use to be ExecRanks, prays on people's desire to sit on boards (see AdvisoryCloud post here). It seems like AdvisoryCloud/ExecRanks, ExecMagic monetizes executives hopes and dreams of becoming a board member without much success of that exec obtaining a board seat.
