Scammers? Schemes? Pyramids don't work?
Network Marketing is not for everyone. Most of the people who knock it, have not tried it or just don't get it. MLM companies can provide a full or second income to those that can actually do it. I can, I did, and I will continue to do it. I am not going to justify anything with Mannatech or any other MLM company that has given this industry a bad name. Yes, there are terrible ones out there that ruin it for all... um, hello Enron. When a company survives and has people backing it up, there is instant negative publicity. Some pyramids don't work and some are a scam. But, the ones that do work can provide an excellent income and change people's lives. I have seen it. Unfortunalty, people who are not open to new technology or new advances have a hard time believing in MLM's.
Uh - MLM business practices are illegal, you simply are not allowed to build a business in that manner.
