Hey guys I wanted to discuss some things with you today about multi-level marketing. The truth behind multi-level marketing is primarily a sales driven opportunity, so if you do not have the gift of the gab success in this business model will be difficult. I have witnessed this type of business since the late 80’s because my mother was a Mary Kay Representative. I saw her do meetings in our home; I noticed a ton of product that she purchased to sell to others. She reached a small level of success within Mary Kay, and it was a great step for her growth process. After a few years her desire started to dwindle, and she was left with the entire inventory of unsold product. Due to inexperience with accounting and a lack of recordkeeping my mother never really knew if her revenue exceeded her expenses. Mary Kay is still around today and their competitor as well the popular company called Avon. Now the new MLM trend to hit the U.S. is Utility companies looking to take a grapple hold on this business model.
I once ventured into MLM through a company called Mona Vie; they sell juice as a business model. I began my journey in this business for $300 dollars upfront costs for an entry level distributor. A family member introduced me to this fabulous experience. They also sell a monthly juice plan that ranges from 1 to an unlimited amount of bottles billed per month. I failed at this business because I never wanted to be a seller and I never will. My family member and everyone involved that I knew personally through the business also did not succeed with this company. I guess I do not like the awkward situations that selling places people in on both sides of the equation. The morale of the story is the people who benefitted from Mona Vie is and will always be the high level executives at the top of the food chain.
