Pyramid Schemes

Important Information, Rod.

As I scan the internet for MLM News regularly, I am amazed at how often business reporters don't know the difference between an illegal pyramid and a legitimate MLM.

For people who wish a longer analysis that helps to cut through and even quantify, the gray areas, I recorded a webinar some time back here:

Thanks again, Rod.

Another free resource, and thank you Rod!

You have to be on top of it, there are many, many programs out there that are either in the grey zone, or flat out illegal. Education is the remedy, so get educated!

Excellent points

It amazes me that people will be quick to call something a pyramid before doing their homework. I could sign up a million people under me in my company and I wouldn't even make one dollar. Until the product is sold no one makes money and we aren't required to buy the product just because we sell it. Can you imagine going to work in a brick and mortar business and you have to buy something they sell to get a paycheck?

Like the Article

This is a help when explaining MLM to people thanks for the article. Researching your company is important. Where most people don't they get involved in the hype. Emotions take over to make that million dollar promise. good stuff
