I cannot tell you how many people come to me daily about selling Advocare, Beachbody, It Works, Isagenix, you name it, but I am NOT a fan of the pyramid business. In order to truly thrive in those businesses, you've got to sign up or recruit people to sell beneath you so that you can make money off of them and their "clients." This process repeats itself and keeps going, and going, and going. While you get richer, the bottom dog gets poorer and has to work harder-only for you to take most of the profit. How fair is that?
I love the fact that I sell and create my OWN products. I do not force anyone to buy my stuff, but I am SO thankful when someone trusts me enough to do so. I would never enter the world of MLM and sell out to you guys because it's just not for me. I don't want to give you false hopes and lure you into something that may or may not workout.
However, the MLM process is so focused on trying to recruit people to "build your team" that some do not even care if you sell the product! So, these companies begin to lose sight of offering quality product because all of these people are shoveling out money to "start their own business."
Sadly, I see a lot of negative sides of the MLM business where people actually waste their effort, time, and money. On the flip side, there are some who work their tails off and do great with it.
If you do it and you're successful with it, that's great. But please do not ask me to sell or join. I just cannot do it with a straight conscience.
