MLM Business gone Wrong??!!
Hi there everyone,
My name is Tina Jessamiene Goh of TJ Wellness Zone. I’m from Singapore & a newbie at Online Marketing. However, I’ve been in the MLM industry for years (since 1995) & have been moving from one venture to another. Please don’t get me wrong, I am not the “stone that gathers no moss” but I’ve had bad industry experience from not being able to prospect recruits - 2 of my uplines dumped me after joining the group, to the MLM company’s foreclosure because it was not able to pay the remaining distributors...
Nonetheless, I still believe it to be true that the Internet offers the greatest opportunities to businesses.
Well, I’m here to throw some light in to the going ons of MLM businesses on the other side of the globe. Recently, the man behind the company Sunshine Empire has been in the limelight here, albeit for the wrong reasons. Below is the latest news update following the police Criminal Affairs Department’s probe into the company’s “controversial business practices”.
Other links in the articles carried a story of a “recruit” who had used her parent’s life savings for a promised of changing lives & living dreams.
Personally, I have been cajoled to join this company and am very glad that I didn’t… Anyways, I don’t have S$11,000 to invest to begin with. The learning from this episode is that as investors in any ventures or business, research is key. An informed decision made from one’s own research & feedback is so important. My thorough on & offline research on the company gave me the information I needed to make the right decision. The second learning is – and this I’ve learnt from all my ventures is that, there is NO such thing as easy money… Whatever efforts you put into any ventures, business or otherwise is what you reap in ROI.
The legal battle is still ensuing, so stay tuned for more updates on this sad but true fiasco…
Enjoy & best wishes,
