That's why all those MLM's reccommend not quitting your day job until you replace your income several times over.... because MLM is such a great option.

That's a key indicator of the relative validity of the "MLM economy." Without MLM, the rest of the economy runs just fine. Without the rest of the economy, MLM collapses.

And right there you show your business non-savvy! MLM has a huge advantage over traditional businesses in that you can build it from scratch while keeping your job and being able to afford to put food on the table. The hardest part of starting a traditional business is that you will almost certainly have to start it from scratch full time, meaning you will not have a job income to live on.

It's great, unless you actually look at the results. Then it's not so great.

O.K, I get it, Everything in Vitamark is free.

All I have to do is scrape up 29 bucks and I'm in business.

Just one problem...

Who's going to pay my phone bill so I don't miss any weekly "Cookie Calls'?

Are there really any MLMS without costs of SOME KIND to stay in them? If so name one or two. Otherwise STFU.

That is such a silly comment. But (mlm) typical.

Nobody believes for one munute that MLM's are responsible for the "world's econonic collaspe" because we all know so few people are vulnerable enough to get involved in the first place.

That's like saying a water drop on a nats ass is responsible for global warming and the rising sea levels.

You veteran mlmer's always go to the far extremes for some reason. Go figure!

A documented and researched 97 - 99.9% failure rate for MLM inductees doesn't help the situation.

Don't you agree?

Question? Can you name ANY business that doesn't have some kind of ongoing costs or fees?

It's a b-u-s-i-n-e-s-s...

There are always costs in business, but there are different levels of costs. At the lowest level you could join a company for less than $50, find some products you like and want to order on a monthly basis, then use word of mouth advertising (free) to tell people about the products and the business. Got more money? Then spend more on product samples, buying leads and spending on advertising. Thats the advantage of MLM, the costs can be tailored to your pocket.
Btw, does every one of your posts need the silly ''STFU''S with them? You sound like what we call a CHAV over here. You even have the baseball cap, lol!

Wow, you can't even understand the simplest of things, can you? Doesn't surprise me, but it is sad.

Says the man who's admitted to being a child molester (since we are playing "things other people didn't say"). Do you REALLY want to play that game?

Are you an outright liar or are you that colossally stupid to think I said MLM caused the economic problems?

Serious question Wil. Are you this much of a conman or are you even dumber than Kerry?

If you are going to talk about other's business non-savvy, you might not want to expose your own in the very same post. One does not have to go full time to start a small business.

Your pathetic spin is so transparent. You always want to compare starting an MLM to starting some huge expensive business. Small businesses exist that are small little startups. People do them all the time. Some do well, some don't.

We can talk about one "almost certainty".... your posts will be BS.

Thats why I said ''almost certainly'', meaning that occasionally, very occasionally you can start a business alongside your job. Yeah, you could start a baby sitting business, or cut someone's grass, but none of those ''part time while holding a job'' types of business have anywhere near the potential of a MLM distributorship for the simple reason they dont have any potential for leverage (without employing others)

You are kidding, right? How would it work, if people instead of legitimate occupations would start selling to each other products through MLM schemes? Where the money would come from into such a system?

MLM is not a replacement for a real job. stop in the bank, tell them you want to buy a new car, have no job, but expect to make lots of money in MLM. meet reality.
