The Perils of Working Under a Multi-Level Marketing Scheme.
- You are statistically more likely to lose money when working under a MLMS, not make it. The numbers I have looked at say that it’s 90% plus.
- In fact, you are slightly better off being a professional gambler.
- Because they want you to sell more, to disguise the fact that you are more than likely making nothing for yourself, there is often a pseudo self-help /motivation quality to the companies to keep you involved. Very often they conveniently counsel you to ignore ‘negative people’ or ‘haters’, just in case anybody close to you has any awkward questions, like ‘Are you making any money?’ [Many people] leave these companies and compare it to leaving a cult.
