Review: The Truth about

When a person receives an invitation from an organization online, they are often cautious about accepting the invitation and whether it is real or fake. That is completely understandable, so I would like to give you more information about, why it matters, and whether it's worth joining.

In their own words: 
" is a community about leadership and showcasing your talents" 
What does this mean? It means that the society is focused on leadership, as a significant number of honor societies are. Interestingly enough, the showcasing your talent portion is a little different than the usual spiel an honor society gives, and that's where it gets interesting. Unlike most honor societies that only exist to recognize your previous successes, exists to promote you and your abilities to future employers, scholarship committees and the world. is also a great branding building tool. Did you know that 77% of employers Google prospective applicants before hiring? helps members build a positive portfolio to help you put your best foot forward.

The society is also very active in online social networks. The Facebook page has over 1.3 million likes, for example, and publishes member stories, pictures and videos everyday. The society is also very active on LinkedIn and Instagram. also connects its members to influential people and leaders. Cobi Jones, United States World Cup soccer athlete, met with members in Los Angeles to discuss his unlikely path to success and his views on leadership.

The truth is-- you get what you put in. If you believe honor societies are a scam and you pay member dues and don't participate-- you will prove yourself right. But if you join and take advantage of what the society offers, it has the potential to be a life changing opportunity. The more you put into, the more you will get out of it. Simple as that.
