    No, Just me?

    I know I'm a bit late to the party of whinging about this, but the amount of drivel through facebook feeds etc, seeing people literally 'cream' over someone receiving a 'fake cheque' for their hard work to Forever Living.

    Sucked in by the marketing pitch of this pyramid scheme.

    Actually knowing someone who has done it, hear them posting/talking about how they are going to change their life.

    It is all BS to me.

    The wrong terminology, it is MLM not pyramid tut tut tut lol

    I actually know a lady who quit her very good sales job to go into that line of business and she is doing very well out of it. She also works from home, spends time with the kids, with that she makes money whilst asleep.

    Of course they will tell you how brilliant they are doing. To entice more naive people to get into it, whilst at the same time enhancing her own pockets.
    Very very few would do well as like a pyramid scheme the rich (the people who started a very long time ago) only get richer.

    I have known her for years, she was the top BDM for this Company, very successful and made a small fortune. Of course, it does help she is amazingly beautiful and that helps her sell the - what i call olive oil just to annoy the hell out of her. But she's very successful with it, can't fault her.

    However I do know others who have failed miserably at it, but again i guess it takes a certain type of extrovert to sell that stuff.

    Agree, you have to be a certain type. I have been involved in several and despite making money in a couple I found it hard to push something that I knew you could get cheaper elsewhere.
    The one I am involved in now is ok but probably near its limit for the UK due to certain restrictions on who they allow as customers but suffice to say once somebody is a customer you never have to "sell" to them again but they invariably stay a customer for life so in my eyes the perfect MLM.

    is this where you get folk to pay in, once you reach a certain place of the scheme you start to get a percentage?

    My biggest rant is this and younique, how on earth can you earn a promotion for running your own business, and how great their product is, despite the fact they still look like the back end of a bus.
