Some thoughts on MLM:
Most MLMs are scams. Only a small fraction of MLMers make enough money to survive. Very few MLMers get a monthly commision check. Yet many hold on to the dream. Gambling has a bigger payoff than MLM.
Too much emphasis is placed on recruiting. The prime goal of any business is to move the product or service to the consumer. That is where the profits come from, not from recruiting. Imagine the insaneness of a traditional company having the goal of hiring as many employees as it can, with no intention of moving the product. Most MLMs end up being wholesale buyers clubs where its cheaper to join and buy wholesale.
Let’s get back to sales. That’s where the money comes from.
