					About our Telephone System
1) We do not have priorities
2) We do not require X amount of time with each client
3) We do not require address capturing
4) We are not anything like PRN. In fact, we do not care for having “PRN
mentality” We are a professional Psychic Network. Therefore, we too require
utmost professionalism at all times.



This is an opportunity for you to render services as Independent Contractor and work out
of your own home making your own hours.

Unlike PRN, ACM Entertainment, LLC does not ask you for logs, hold times nor are call
priorities based on whoever can keep the client on the longest.

The only thing they are asked of you is to be professional by following the guidelines.

You will use a stage name and a stage picture on the website because HTML updates take
forever and this company is to busy running a business NOT a design fashion show. If
this doesn’t jibe with you, that is fine DON’T ACCEPT the offer.

However you should be wise and evaluate all other Psychic Lines to figure out if this is
too much to ask from you.

Compensation TABLE A All calls taken during 4pm EST –
4am EST 7 DAYS A WEEK AND ALL DAYS ON HOLIDAY
ARE PAID AT .27 talk minute.

CALLS taken during other hours are paid at .22 per minute.

After an 8 week evaluation, if new contracting readers have
demonstrated: motivation, professionalism, independence,
etc….03 cent increase to the entire scale will take place. This
applies only to professionals that do not require constant
reminding of operational procedures and do place themselves
available more than 18 hours per week.
Telephone Requirements

   1) Standard LAN Line free of call waiting, 3 way calling, answering machines or
      any other feature.
   2) The phone you use must be touch-tone.
   3) The phone number used for working must be the same you log into. Remove
      caller id by using *82 or the system will not log you in. This is a security feature.
   4) The system will identify you by your phone number and you will be credit to this
      number only. If you attempt to log onto the system with any other phone you will
      not be credited for minutes worked. Personal calls while you are logged into the
      system will bump you out of your turn to receive calls and eventually cause you
      to be dropped by the system. It is recommended that you install a separate phone
      line dedicated to business. This eliminates the chance of getting personal phone
      calls and being dropped from the program.
   5) When you are ready to log onto the system you will be in. Follow the prompts.
      Your phone number will be your log in id. Once you have access the system you
      will receive calls. Your phone will ring when you have a call. If you do not log
      into the system, you will not receive calls.
   6) Do not take your phone off the hook while you are logged on. If you need to go to
      the bathroom or anything else, even if you will be gone for a minute. LOG OFF
      THE SYSTEM! You can always dial back in. When logged into the system, you
      must personally answer the phone. NO ONE ELSE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD
      IS TO ANSWER THE PHONE WHATSOEVER!
   7) Never answer the phone “Hello.” When your phone rings you will answer it:
      “Hello, welcome to the absolutely psychic dot com network, my name is _______
      my extension is___________ how may I help you? “ You must say “Absolutely
      Psychic dot com – not absolutely psychic not anything else. Again, it must be
      verbatim absolutely psychic dot com. You will not hear a “prompt” indicating
      it’s a phone reading. Therefore, you must be at all time answer the phone in this
      manner.
   8) If caller is under 18 please explain BRIEFLY they must be 18 or older to access
      the line and terminate the call.

                                            8
   9) Do not accept the callers phone number or address or any other contact
       information
   10) Do not put callers on hold or make them wait for any reason.
   11) Do not discuss per minute telephone charges with caller.. They are explained in
       our ads and again in a preamble they listen to before being connected. Explain to
       the caller that you do not know if they ask. Also, do not discuss your
       compensation.
   12) Do share with the caller the times you are usually available and your extension
       number.
   13) Choose your work area carefully. It should be comfortable, quiet, and away from
       distractions so you can give your full attention to the caller and not have to
       bother of crying children, loud talking or TV or other noise that may distract you r
       loud noisy background such as kids arguing or getting “rowdy.” If you feel this is
       an issue, use your discretion to when your household is quiet. However at all
       times the line must present a professional image. Besides, it does not look too
       professional for a real psychic to “concentrate” with such distractions.
   14) The telephone system phone number that sends you phone calls is the same on
        you need to use to log in and out. It uses caller ID as your password so that no
        one “hacks” into your system. Therefore, if you attempt to log in our out
        from a different telephone, it will not allow you to do so. It must be from the
        same telephone.

            Role: Media Relations, and Education and of course… reading.
            Making Absolutely Psychic the best Network for readers based on the trials
            and tribulations undergone in working for other networks.

We have enclosed the following pages for your knowledge. Since this is an opportunity
to work with people that you will never meet in person, it requires clarification in order to
run a business efficiently. Since contact with any Psychic network is mostly on the
telephone or online, many things are left unspoken. If this opportunity were in an office
were we would say “good morning” to you, the obvious role-play would speak for itself.

It is our goal to be very clear on our needs in the following pages. Delivering a realistic
message about the Psychic market based from our experiences is important so that you
know what to expect and know the market better.

Since we are a professional group with pride, dignity and integrity in its mission, we
expect working with ONLY professionals.

From our point of view, good reading skills are great. However, it does not make one a
professional. Good reading skills in combination with great workmanship is what we
consider a professional.

Great workmanship requires: Following directions, working independently, following
operational procedures and above all having a motivation to be here. Knowing the
Psychic Market helps! We continue to grow as we only staff the best.

Hopefully after reading through this you will have a clear understanding about our
company and our philosophies.

Thank you

                                            11
MISUNDERSTANDING INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR WORK

Since independent contractor work is not a reliable source of revenue; many approach the
market in the wrong way. To approach the market correctly, it requires KNOWING the
market and yet WORKING with the market to better suit your professional goals.

After all, IC's are not paid a 401k plan or benefits. However, by law, IC’s are free to
work for whomever, however, whenever etc… So to make the best of both worlds, IC’s
that build a long lasting relationship with a Network know this and do things for
themselves to preserve a long lasting relationship.

A major mistake often made from ICs is not having a backup. If you rely on just one
company, that company may shut their doors down tomorrow. Examples: Psychic
Friends Network, Astronet, Walter Mercado, and numerous of other networks.

Some of our current readers have outside jobs. Other reader’s multi-task by working on
other Psychic Networks. One of our readers is able to do her other work (also from her
home) while waiting for readings. We recommend you do the same. Especially since
there is a bonus incentive for idle time. It will preserve burn out. MULTI- Tasking is
your legal right. When we hear, “ How much money will I make? “ It worries us as it is
clear proof that experience in independent contractor work is missing. MULTI TASK! It
is giving you the freedom to work out of your own home making your own hours.

                WHY CONTRACT WITH A PSYCHIC NETWORK

      Earn money working in your own home at the hours of your choice.
      Enjoy counseling people using your Psychic gifts.

                        ON ANY PSYCHIC NETWORK

We truly recommend you analyze why you want independent contractor work. Any
Psychic on a Psychic Network will always face the same issues:

      Competition with other networks.
      The more readers the more competitive between readers getting a reading.
       However a network needs coverage. If a Network encourages specific hours, try
       to make the effort in being available. Otherwise, a Network continues to overstaff
       until coverage is satisfactory. However do realize that the more staff, the less
       readings go around, which means less money, as there is more competition with
       readers. After all, advertising charge backs, and regular business expenses cost.
       It’s a business.

                     MOTIVATIONAL REWARDS AND RECOGNITIONS

      You are still paid when a client complains. Today’s market has many networks
       that do not pay for chargebacks.
      You are supported 100% according to the law that allows working for other
       networks. We have a long list, Especially Astronet, who had many violations
       with Employment laws. Where are those readers now? How do they feel ?
       REGRET!
                                           12
      Effort is rewarded by annual increase. This is unheard on all the psychic
       networks in the market. If you know of one, let us know.
      Motivation is rewarded by the opportunity to “boutique” a group of telephone
       readers. This is discussed later.

        MANY PSYCHIC NETWORKS & THEIR SLEAZY PRACTICES!

      Many Psychic Networks do not last because their strategy is all about making
       money. They do not care who they staff. They simply staff a body that can work.
       Many Psychic Networks do not last because they do not know anything about the
       Psychic profession/Psychic Phenomena.
      Astronet had 70 readers that worked exclusively to their illegal and invalid
       contract (must not work for another network.) On September 10, 2001 when the
       doors shut, many fled with regret knowing the day would arrive.
      Many Psychic Networks also mix their business with SEX. Most 900 lines
       operate phone sex lines. Also, many Psychic Networks operate in the adult
       entertainment business. Examples: Psychicchat owns The Zone LA Sex club –
       we would enclose a hyper link to the thezone.com but due to its X rated nature we
       rather not. Psychic Realm operates over 10 x-rated websites.
      PRN – We all know the story about Ms Cleo. Therefore we let you use your
       imagination on Hold times etc… Keep the client on the phone as long as possible
       to make the most money.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SIGN UP GATEWAY VERSUS A NETWORK

Anyone can sign up on a gateway and bill themselves as a Psychic. No experience is
necessary!

      A gateway doesn’t pay you for chargebacks. 2 major fraud transactions stand out
       that resulted in contractors losing several thousands of dollars.
      A gateway doesn’t offer you a motive with bonus money
      A gateway doesn’t offer you more a raise.
      A gateway offers “expert” advice – not Psychics. Therefore, their knowledge in
       Psychic Phenomena is lacking.

                             ABOUT MULTI-TASKING

It’s fine if you multi-task. However when you log out you must verify that you are
logged off. If you are working for another site or 900 line and you get a reading there,
log out of AP immediately. When you’re done, please feel free to log back in. We have
no problem whatsoever with this! This is your legal right! This is the smart way smart
Psychics work.

Your available status is to be honored and followed in every sense. Clients do not wait
for a reading – the reading is INSTANT – THIS IS WHAT THEY ARE BEING
GUARNATEED.

Working for other Networks is fine and encouraged. However, a different identity,
picture and bio is mandatory on the AP Network.

                                           13
                      WHAT DOES A NETWORK OWE YOU?

Before PRN was born, there were Networks were readers were paid poorly. Though we
believe that back then the pay rate was higher than today! However many readers still
go about contracting on networks incorrectly.

Some readers that have been burned out have a gruesome ideology that if it weren’t for
their services, there wouldn’t be a business. “They are the ones making all the money.”
Yet, the reality of ANY business (Psychic Network or even WALL STREET) is that any
business only owes you one thing A PAYCHECK.

However as a smart business with appreciation, it is wise to have bonus incentives to
keep you motivated. We are upfront regarding this market. Therefore we are HONEST,
ETHICAL, ONLY HAVE GREAT READERS, FREE OF “ADULT BUSINESS’ “
and simply adore our current staff.

Unfortunately we had some very bad contractors that were great readers. Though we
have always staffed in accordance to reading skills, we are now placing more emphasis
on level of professionalism, intelligence, workmanship and personality. Every company
does this and we have restructured our contracting procedures to fit having coverage and
yet coverage that doesn’t cost us time, money or stress.

We expect that all contractors that have their “baggage” from previous networks
reconsider their decision if this opportunity is right. We are not putting any fantasies in
your mind. In fact, we have heard from many readers: “I’ve never seen a contract like
yours.” “Wow, I never got a raise – thank you.” “You guys are honest, I like that.”
“You guys are always striving to make it better.” So, if you feel that you would like to be
part of the team, great. We only require 2 things: Professional role-play and working the
chat console flawlessly. Otherwise, there isn’t a place for us to lose neither business,
