Most MLM's are a waste of time though there are some good products.

Mary K, Shaklee, Amway, Herbal Life are all MLM's.

Most of the time you make your money by signing up new recruits.

But there have been instances where people actually have a book of business.

If you set it up that way and train your people to do the same you can make some serious cash.

Only problem is MLM's have such a negative stigma people will judge and run from you before you get a chance to explain what the hell it is you are selling.

So just what is this opportunity someone presented to you?

My honest opinion is that they are sales job for occultists. If you're willing to drink the Kool-Aid, knock on doors, alienate your friends and family, then you could very possibly make a bunch of money. If you're dedicated. But then again, you can make a bunch of money doing a lot of things if you're dedicated.

I'd like to know what MLM he is talking about.

Obviously someone is hitting him up for something or he saw something somewhere he is interested in.

You're right in many ways. But if the products are something people want and you're not pushy, your family doesn't feel alienated. Yeah, the Amways of this world are for funny people.

I have some experience with MLM. My wife's side of the family (her brother and her mom) were heavily involved a number of years back with an MLM company called Excel/VarTec. It was a telecommunications company (telephone service, long distance, cell phone service, etc.).

My brother-in-law and his friend were in their early 20s at the time and made a killing. They did it full time and had a ton of monthly income coming in. They were driving Escalades and Lexuses, took trips to Cancun, owned nice condos, big screen TVs, etc. Then the company suddenly folded one day and that was that. Suddenly their monthly income went to zero and they were bankrupt.

Obviously, if they would have lived a little more frugally and invested some of the money they were making, things would have turned out a little better. However, they almost had to live a flashy lifestyle like they were to achieve the success they had. Part of their gig in recruiting others was showing off their success. They made a killing recruiting other young people like them.

That was probably 8-10 years ago. I got involved and pretty much broke even. It never worked for me. Today, my brother-in-law is fine. He finished college and has a good job and everything. I don't think he'll ever forget how he got burnt though.

As for my mother-in-law, she was involved with the same company as my brother-in-law (he got her in). She's bounced around from MLM to MLM since which is a major turnoff for me. I don't think she's ever been successful. I think (don't know for certain) she loses money each year as she waits for her "big break".

The thing that really turns me off about her involvement in MLMs is she always follows the lead of some of her higher ups (upline is the MLM term). They jump to a new one and they get their "downline" including my mother-in-law to follow along, resulting in profit for them. And all the while, my wife and I get to hear about how great THIS new company is every time it happens. Every new MLM company is always so much better than the previous ones. Meanwhile, she just keeps right on throwing away money year in and year out.

In summary, MLMs can work. I've seen it first hand. As others have said though, you have to be really good at it. You have to be a big shmoozer and can't be bothered hitting up family, friends, strangers, etc. But it can be gone in an instant too. And if you're not good at it, you can end up bouncing around, following your "mentors", and losing money while everyone else profits off of you.

Hey! This is a family member who never calls you, and I wondered what you are doing tomorrow, I'd like to drop by.

Are you happy where you are? Could you use a little more money? Give me $300 and I'll give you a box and an opportunity for you to sell boxes like these to your friends for $300....and if enough of them sell boxes to their friends...Profit!

I'll be retired in 5 years. Would you like to retire early? I'll be in Hawaii 3 months of the year.

I got into a fairly new one in CO when I was selling merchant processing ( basically any business that takes credit cards pays someone to process them) I hit up every business I signed up. Made money on it, bout 1k/week, towards the end. Wasn't hitting up friends/family though and really didn't care about the business owners I was signing up. Most business owners are dumb and if they think another business owner is making money off something they usually want to play too.
