Business experience is not required to be successful in MLM.
There are ways of building a business without a source of income, depending of course on the type of business/product you are in. I have someone in my team who was unemployed a few months ago and is now doing very well indeed.

What about the others in your team? How well are they doing?

Oh that's right, those that fail don't count....

Some are doing well, others just starting, some have given up.

Remember...

Realizing you made a big mistake and cutting your losses = giving up

For example: You buy a stock and the company goes bankrupt. You sell your shares as the stock price plummets. Someone asks you, "Why'd you sell your stock?" You reply: "I gave up on investing."

MLM is like watching a bad movie.

Good example....$40 bucks for a tub of popcorn and couple of coke's to watch a bad movie.

Look at Heiney,... 12+ MLM's and he still has a "JOB".

Yet this psycho Stockholm's syndrome knucklehead still says MLM is the best thing that ever happened to him.

It sort of makes you makes you wonder...

According to heiney, he's not making money and isn't even in MLM right now. He's just a forum troll. Do you ever see him actually debating anything? All I ever see is him trying to engage someone in an off topic name calling fight,

Same concept.

These guys are so good (in their own minds) of throwing out some illogical crap and thinking they can convince normal thinking people to come on board.

Like serial MLM jumper C. Doyle said.....it's all "entertainment".

Help please.
How about this question, Why is it that every single thread here talks about the same thing over and over again. The amount of time we spend on here gossiping and aguring on pointless topics we could be doing something for society. Bottom line is this MLMs are no different then buying and running a francise. Same princlple. Same formula. You have to duplicate there habits. Some people enjoy working for them selfs some people enjoy working for a boss. No one is wrong

This isn't MLM related, but I plan on using illegals as my target audience for future business endeavors.
That is my complete oposite plan, See I wan tbusiness Professionals. I find that people that are higher up on the economical chain such as business owners, realators, CFO's People like that, look at my business and know that it is for real. They see the value in a MLM. Most people get there broke friends involved, or some coca cola drinking cuical worker in and wonder why its not going anywhere. As far as scamming illegals I say GO FOR IT, they steal from us. so why not. They wont do anything in the business anyways,

Because MLM is the same thing....over and over again....repeat.

Not a hard concept to follow.

And when the resident MLM clowns talk about the same sh*t over and over again....I'll be here to tell the truth....over and over again.

Nothing changes here.

You need to find a site where you can con unsuspecting MLM victims....this place might not be a good choice.

Re: MLM Scams

MLM's are not scams they just have a very high rate of failure. 98% is the failure rate. Why? Well because most people do not have a natural sales ability. Its uncomfortable and makes people want to quit right when they start. But... Its worth it to go through the uncomfort to build leverage over time. When you don't have any leverage you are just trading time for money. The owner of any successful corporation has hundreds to thousands of people that he earns money off of. How many people can you leverage off of if you are working a 9-5? One.

I wonder?

Maybe it's because MLM has such a consistently high loss and failure percentage?

One of two things going on here. Either:

A.) There is an inherent flaw in MLM that causes well over 90% of their victims (IBOs, distributors, team members, or whatever they are calling them these days to convince them there is a viable opportunity there) to lose money.

Or,

B.) Well over 90% of the people who bite on MLM as a successful business model are too inherently stupid to succeed in business in the first place, and it's not in any way the fault of MLM or it's promoters.

This does not change the fact that your chances of success in MLM are the same thing "over and over again".

So, you admit that scamming people is a regular way of making money in an MLM. Regardless of who they might be.

Main reason for failure in MLM is, in my opinion: not receiving the proper, or any training. In other words most new recruits don't know what to do.
