    Damn Taurus bros, this is disappointing for sure. I saw big things coming for this company. Even in the short time that I had the honor of representing this company I was extremely impressed with the direction of it's supplement line up. This is unfortunate.

    Wow, that's pretty surprising. I hate that you're having to shut down, maybe someone will end up deciding to take over for you and keep the company going. I never got around to trying any Taurus products but from what I see all over the boards, it was good stuff. I wish you the best.

    i inquired about this in PM. although im not quite sure where in the midwest the company is located.

    on another note this is truly disappointing. Wyked was the first preWO that i fell in love with, i got all my friends hooked too lol..
    really hope things level out on the up and up - i hate to see you guys go.

    In all seriousness though, I hope you can find someone to help you out up there in Michigan, Eirc. If not, any ideas of carry over some of the innovation of Taurus to LG?

    Haha. That's just disturbing.

    The third option would be an outright sale of Taurus to a 3rd party. I would think some might be interested if the price were right.

    Hate to see the company go though. There have been some very innovative ideas.

    Its a shame to see an obviously well-respected company fold, I have seen a lot of good feedback on here since I started reading the forums again in january. Heck, I was looking at M1P initially, until some good advice got me going in a different direction to start with, but I had hoped in the future to try it out. The great reps and feedback make me wish I could help, too bad with the wife and kid and job in Ohio, and only minimal experience in small business management-mainly my grandparents', can't do it. Good luck with future endeavors Taurus!

    Also, now I want to run m1p! its 47.99 at NP......can't bring myself to ask for freebies, kinda dishonorable

    Ok, I can see where the older lady in the background could be the "Madam" or the stripper's boss/ chaperon but the guy with his little daughter at an obvious stag/ bachelor party is VERY disturbing! What the heck was he thinking!?!?

    Eric, Im real sorry to hear about this, but Im sure with law school youll have your hands full anyway.

    To everyone asking about the formulas, Eric was a gracious enough to some of them over to us at LG. He truly is a great dude.

    Eric, I'm in law school too and work full time, my grades definitely suffer compared to other students so I understand the desire to be more committed, plus you don't want anything stopping you from taking the bar, like your name mentioned in FDA docs for one reason or another, what school you at?

    NO WHINING IF I DON'T REPLY. I am busy and I will do the best I can...
    Man this sucks!
    Wish I could sinc eI have worked in marketing for years now, working with ****, -LG, -Primordial :-/ - Powerchews, - mrsupps and so on.
    but I am all the way in ontario Canada. :-(

    Anyway PM sent, If I can help part time let me know. but work has me tied up for full time.

    The ABA says you're not supposed to work more than 20 hrs per week. No one enforces this stuff though. I worked up to 40 hrs per week during my 3L year and still got my bar card

    I think 2 & 3Ls can work 40+. Just not 1Ls. I don't have time anyways with getting my MBA too. I just remember signing it. I knew I wasn't gonna work
