Good work on her part then getting in at the right time.

But they sell legitimate products that people really like so the company sustains itself. They do a lot of stuff well. I just don't like the products and the time away from family but she lets me do what I want to do and I let her do what she likes to do. She seems to like this and she's good at it. But I definitely get the anti-MLM criticism. It's just not accurate to group them all into the same basket.

I don't know about that. Her friend got in at the right time. Her husband quit his job a couple years back and they do very, very well.

So she probably got in just a tad too late then?

I tried hard at it and lost my ass. The Gurus set these things up and have one hell of a sales pitch. They always make money and ditch the program when it slows down. You see the same names in each program and they are very convincing. I was working and making money so it didn't make me destitute, but if I was doing only that, it would have ****ed me up. It kind of gets in your blood ,probably like gambling. I got in a couple of them that I swore I was gonna make it big. Total disappointment.

Well they say only 97% of the people in these things ever succeed. Maybe it's your turn to be part of the 3%? Just kidding. Stay out if it's not been working for you.

The brother of one of my college roommates has done quite well in a MLM business. But he is at the very top of the pyramid. He did Herbalife for several years with little success before hitting it big with his current product line. I would rather live in a tent than support myself this way.

I think so. She says I'm wrong. She's kinda plateaued and I think the market is saturated with people selling these items. The gals who do really, really well are the ones who have the trade shows, festivals, and state fairs where the products fly off the shelves but it's not just about selling. It's about finding suckers who will sign up under you and also sell. She needs one more gal to hit a director level and then she'll get a hefty raise in commission but it's tough to get those people. I'm frustrated with it. She's not. She earns the incentive trips and I guess that's nice but I'd really rather have the money and pay for my own vacation where I want to go with people I want to go with.

I'd be good at it if there were a product about which I were passionate. I haven't seen one yet. But I really dislike the concept anyway. I run from every person trying to pitch me.

I would typically think that by the time the company is well known it's already too late to get in if you expect to be making $250,000+ per year.

I tried my hand at a MLM once. It simply wasn't for me. I didn't like the concept of hitting up my friends and family constantly, offering a product I was only half-assed interested in/proud of.

I think some people thrive in that environment, though. Call them what you want, but it's a successful business to some people. And you know what - more power to them. I won't complain about another person's success because I couldn't hack it.

The Gurus use the bait and switch method. They look for people wanting to make money, get you in and then you end up being a customer. If you accept and try to work the system it doesn't matter to them. You are just another sucker who accepts their mass emails. I got rid of my old email for that reason. It turns into a spam receptacle no matter what you do. You have to go automated and send mass emails out. I just didn't like the feel of it. And it is correct that friends and family take a long time to get over the sales pitch, even if you pay their way in to it. I put hundreds of dollars into it.

So she needs one more blue ribbon to qualify to be the Heimlech county rep at the national convention down in Dallas?

Interestingly, this company had been around for a loooooong time. But it isn't that well known even now.
