Backstory: Leah discovered Celebrating Home at a school PTO event, while living on Grand Forks Air Force base in North Dakota. Having just finished chemo for cervical cancer (she's in remission now), she hosted a party for fun. While it was winding down, her husband, David, 32, came in from his second job and said, "You could sell that stuff." Leah laughed it off, but David encouraged her to try. "He felt I needed something positive after being so sick," she says. When offered a start-up kit for half price as part of a special promotion, Leah bought in and lined up events with friends on the base, showing how to cook quick meals and set beautiful tables with the stoneware.

A good MLM will have more than a few products to sell. They will have more than market sector covered (not just nutritional supplements, water filters or essential oils). They will also have other major retailers that they market for. The money those major corporations spend on the annual marketing, will be paid out to the MLM and their distributors for their sales & marketing efforts and results. That is where those companies will get
Thank you for your article. I am also with doterra and I never in my life thought I would do something like this. The reason I started was because of health issues that led me to the oils. I have been an RN for 23 years and I feel more free and excited to share about health than ever. If you are going into something to get rich quick, I think that is the wrong attitude. I think most of my fellow doterra wellness advocates, have come to the same realization as me. I believe most of us started out trying to help ourselves and our families. I left my nursing job of 17 years in Feb, not because I am making enough money to replace my past income, but because I truly love helping others and I love the company and what it stands for. I can’t argue about MLM’s because I truly don’t care about that side of it. Maybe I am wrong to think that way. I hope that this ride doesn’t end anytime soon because the difference that doterra is making in my life, and the lives of those around me, is amazing. Thank you again for your information and your viewpoint.
First of all, Avon “has” been. Second, Avon really needs to work on their appeal to a younger generation. Third, Avon makes it difficult for representatives to make any money unless you are purchasing a ton of catalogs and knocking on doors. The company really needs to allow representatives to advertise online, and I don’t mean spamming friends on a Facebook or Twitter feed.
Now, this one I like.  This company doesn’t use your typical Facebook stalking, 3-way calling, auto-shipping tactics.  It has leaped into the future, did its homework and decided to succeed with network marketing, finally.  The company is an affiliate business opportunity for those who are interested in some first-class digital marketing training; and the icing on the cake is that they have a free trial option.
When you think about making money from home, one of the first things you need to decide is how much you want to make and how much time you have to give it. There’s a big difference between looking a full-time at-home job, running your own business on your own schedule, and doing one-off tasks that pay a little bit here and there. Let’s take a look at some of the things you can do at each of these levels of “commitment.”
Plexus Worldwide is an amazing company to work from home with, I never feel pressured to make sales, I am a product of the product which in return does the sales for me. The products are truly remarkable in that they are multi taskers and have had testimonial proof helping with so many health issues. No website fees, 11 ways to earn, no home parties. I can go on and on about this company I have great passion for! :)
The company. Too many people get lured by the hype, without stopping to consider the company or its product/service. What does the company sell and can you get excited about it? What are the compensation plan, marketing system, and policies, and can you work with it? Is it a member of the DSA, and through your research, been found to be a legitimate company?

loved your notes..... great opportunities are for everyone and anyone. It's not about being black or white, rich or poor, fat or thin, educated or dropping out, it's about taking a chance on yourself, ......ask questions, make friends, get new fun experiences and earn a few extra dollars too. I tried a few, stuck with mary kay 12 years....when I worked, it worked,.....when I did nothing....well you know. Pray and ask GOD where you need to be.....you can do anything.
As with any business venture, it’s important to manage your expectations when signing on with an MLM. Marketing materials may sell you the idea of making good money without leaving your house, but business ventures like these take time to deliver a return on investment. Not every sales agent will be making $100,000 per year right away or even five years down the line. Be realistic about how much you’re likely to sell and how much you’re likely to earn.
From my research of DCD, it seems that this is a company and product that would best suit a mom with older kids who can stay behind for chocolate-tasting parties since it seems pretty hard to sell the product through social-networking alone or in your own limited social-circles. I think that some of the products would sell well in an office setting too--say as holiday gifts from the boss at a large company. 

I’ve written ad nauseum about the idea of offering special, confidential deals with “elite” networkers. Confidential deals occur when a company provides extra incentives to lure experienced networkers from another company. The incentives take many forms, but usually involve up-front money, preferred placement in the genealogy, enhanced earning potential in the pay plan, etc. If you look historically at the companies that have been aggressive with deals, theres always a massive POP followed by a massive DROP. Who gets hurt? The average distributors that signed up under the pretenses of joining the “next hot thing.”
Apparently, he did everything he was asked, from buying monthly training products to attending conferences, which can get expensive. Today, those costs are greatly reduced. The Internet, online training, flat-rate long distance and/or cell phone service, and free and affordable online marketing have made building any business, including MLM, much more affordable. 
Well think of your grandma, remember her perfume or hand cream…chances are she probably got it from Avon and that’s kind of their reputation.  But don’t misjudge the number of grandmas that bought from Avon.  This company is the one that approached the yearly revenue of Amway with a cool $5.7 billion dollars.  But what goes up must come down…their sales have been declining over the last 5 years, and this company just sold their North American branch after quite a few years in the business.

TrūAura Beauty is an incredible direct sales company that just started in February so the opportunity is HUGE! TrūAura offers skincare and cosmetics that are clean, natural and filled with pre and probiotics that naturally balance out your skins microbiome. No matter your skin type, TrūAuras products work with your skins custom PH levels to give you a soft, firm, glowing complexion.
The reason I chose this company is because I knew a lot of my friends and family knew about the brand and already bought the products whenever they could find a consultant. So I figured why not just have them all buy from me instead? It has gone wonderfully so far and I'm even in a retail store now. I really just wanted a way to make some extra money from home as a stay at home mom with a 1 and a half year old and another on the way! Email me at adrienne@oru.edu if you're interested in becoming a consultant which is basically free this month!

Scentsy consultants need to maintain a minimum of $150 sales in a rolling 3 month period. A company called "Perfectly Posh" is straight commission based on however amount of sales you have. There is a quota to meet but it is based on $300 in sales over 6 months. And I believe it's a total of $300 over 6 months. Where as a direct sales like Scentsy requires $150 in sales total for 1 month. Total sales cannot equal $150 in sales done within 3 months. Gotta love these quota rules, they'll get cha every time. One way or another..
This one is debatable. Based on my observations, companies tend to do better when they have a physical presence for the corporate team to work. The idea of a “cloud based” office sounds nice, but in my opinion, it’s a little cheap and leads to less production. I think it’s important for executives to provide a consistent environment for people to come together during normal office hours and focus intensely on their duties to the company. There’s value in people coming together daily in a physical environment, sparking ideas off of each other at random times. If there’s no physical location, the company, in my opinion, is typically unable to adapt and change quick enough to stay ahead of the competition.
Usana is a great business for men. My husband has been doing it for less than a year and doing well. It’s a health and wellness company with the highest rated vitamins, protein shakes, and supplements. Most vitamins that you purchase in store have a rating of under 2 stars. Usana has a rating of 5 stars out of 5. Check out thisishowwedoit.usana.com or email thisishowwedoitusana@gmail.com Usana has also helped my hubby lose 50 lbs and keep it off!
“I wouldn’t be where I am today without the knowledge I gained from [Michael’s] live events and training CDs. Two MUST-HAVE [programs] in your CD library should be ‘The Total Success Pack‘ and ‘Building a Better Life.’ I’ve listened so many times I’ve lost  count. PRICELESS information for your journey to success in business and in life… ‘Easy to do. Easy not to do’ The choice is yours.”
Family Health: Juice+ which is a line of healthy supplements made from whole fruits and vegetables. My personal story here is that in 2007, I was one doctor’s appointment away from starting iron transfusions due to very low iron for almost a year. I started taking the JuicePlus because another GBS patient and friend recommended it. My doctor said okay we will retest in 2 months and see if it drops again — if it does no choice but to go to the transfusions. Two months later after taking the fruit and veggie chewables, my iron didn’t drop again and 4 months after that, my iron rose by 1 point. It continued to rise over the next year till it was in acceptable range (7 points altogether) and I haven’t had an iron issue since.

This company was living life in the lime light, and they were trending for a good while there. They deflated out a bit, however they are still pretty big.  There are over 50 countries currently promoting their immunity-boosting nutritional products, and the rave reviews from the former and current associates makes things seem pretty superb.  Although it’s mentioned that the commissions aren’t great, but maybe that’s okay as long as their reps have continued happiness?
Great post! :-) I am with Javita weightloss coffee and have been a customer since oct 2013 and on Dec 28th signed up to be an independent rep- we are an MLM company as well but like the person earlier mentioned it's legit since anyone can surpass their up line you get out of it what you put into it- we also earn residual income once you are at a certain level. My favorite product of the three is the burn & control- as a working mom with a 13 month old it helped me lose those last pregnancy pounds and has garçinia cambogia in it - which appeared on Dr OZ as the best kept secret in Hollywood for weight loss it's an appetite suppressant and increases metabolism also a fat blocker so not suggested for breast feeding/pregnant moms :( just came out with the Green Tea version as well - I am looking for motivated women with the desire to help others in their healthy lifestyle journey to join my team - myjavita.com/jenniferaz would love to share more info with you!
I am with Mannatech, an 18 year old global home-based business in the exploding wellness industry which has over 1 million associates & growing, 70 patents, easy duplicable system in 20 countries including USA, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand & South Africa, no deliveries, work around your own families commitments, full training, travel holiday incentives to be won, a rewarding business that makes a difference in other people's lives.... As well as your own.
My name is Erin Pyka and I joined this new company all because I received a sample of the product and loved it! I am married to my amazing husband and we have two busy daughters who love being involved in dance and cheer. I also help take care of my grandparents and was a labor and delivery nurse working 12 hour shifts, so the idea of doing a “side gig” didn't sound appealing.

Norwex is also a great company to do direct sales with. Based out of Norway, the company has been around for over 20 years. They produce high quality microfiber cloths that can be used to clean your entire house with only water. Their mission is to reduce the use of toxic chemicals. 35% commission. No monthly dues or sales goals. They’ll send you your starter kit at no cost. All you have to do is sell $2000 in your first 90 days. If you don’t meet that goal you do have to pay $200 for your starter kit, but there are no other obligations. Lots of great incentives
When you’re asking people to volunteer their time to sell a product or service, the experience needs to be fun. As adults, we all feel tremendous pressure in multiple areas of our lives. If a network marketing company starts to feel stale, unappreciative and a little corporate-y, consumers will invest their energies somewhere else. As Millennials hit the scene, it’s important to understand that they’re placing less emphasis on financial metrics. Companies need to always maintain a sense of humor and constantly show appreciation for their sales force. When a company starts leading with an iron fist and sends out warnings to fence in a sales force, it almost always backfires. People need to have fun with the brand and fun sharing the brand with others. If it’s painful, forget about it.
The gift company Thirty-one was founded in 2003. They offer a huge number of attractive home organizing and personalized products including storage bins, purses and totes, wallets, lunch and picnic thermals, and customizable pillows and wall art. Consultants make 25 percent on every sale through face-to-face, online, and catalogue parties. Starter kits are $99. If you become a leader to new consultants, you'll earn a percentage of their commission as well. There's also a monthly subscription fee for a personalized website and emails to customers.

Writing – Whether it is blog content, articles, or business letters, this way of monetizing your skills has become quite common. Micro-job sites like Fiverr allow you to post your skills as “gigs” that you sell for a price, usually a few dollars. Sites like Freelancer and Upwork are “business to consumer” sites where sellers are linked with buyers. Most of the time jobs are awarded based on skills, qualification, buyer needs, and bids made by the seller (you, the freelancer) to get the buyer’s work done. Other sites screen you by requiring you to provide a sample before you are graded and placed in the appropriate writer level based on your writing skill.
Thoroughly enjoyed reading your mlm breakdowns and the comments, thank you Jeremy. Had a successful mlm business but had to make a decision to give it up or have a breakdown due to ongoing upline bullying so at a big crossroads at the minute. being an ‘older’ lady here in the north of England doesn’t bode well for conventional job hunting in the current economic climate so some serious thinking needed on my part and QUICKLY lol. Thanks again Jeremy x
Rodan and Fields is committed to bringing minimally 1 new product a year to market. With product and market growth, along with global expansion, it is an unprecedented opportunity that is too good to pass up. I mean, you are basically going to be getting paid to wash your face, talk about it, and help other people get the best skincare of their lives. This is the business that could change everything.
There’s not necessarily a single answer to this question because your earnings depend largely on one important factor: you. If you’re willing to put in the work, and you are working with an MLM that fits your interests and passion, you’ll probably find yourself earning a pretty penny. However, if you choose an MLM that has a mission and products that you don’t have interest in, then your chances for success are far lower. 

Backstory: Nakia drafted a proposal for her Essential Soul Purpose Youth (ESPY) mentoring program, for ages 14 to 17, and pitched it to company CEO Nadine Thompson, who loved the idea. Nakia found 15 interested teens through her kids and sales force. They kicked off with a fashion show fundraiser in February 2011, with aspiring entrepreneurs modeling Soul Purpose makeup and clothes from local boutiques, to build buzz and recruit community mentors.
With its anti-wrinkle cream and other products, Jeunesse promises to reverse the signs of aging, if temporarily. Jeunesse also sells products to reduce mental distraction, provide nutrition on the go, and help people lose weight. The company’s impressive live demos and message of remaining forever young have placed them on Inc.’s list of fastest-growing American companies.

Thanks for looking into all of these companies. I am a stay at home mom of an almost 4 year old and a 1 year old. I started with Wildtree when my oldest was 9 months old and I get out of it what I put into it. Some months work out well to do parties and work harder on my business. Other months, my family needs more of me and my business goes on the back burner...and that's okay. People are still using the products, therefor running out, and reordering more.
I do not work for any of these companies. In fact, as of right now, I've never even worked in direct-sales. So, though I have researched these companies, what I've written here is merely my own observations and opinions and a list of companies I personally deemed the most trustworthy after much time culling the masses. I'm not guaranteeing that anyone will find themselves rolling in sweet, sweet cash by joining any of these companies.

MLM also referred to as network marketing, utilize a system of marketing that’s based on a basic business model: you become a part of a team of distributors and work to build a team of recruited downline distributors. The top network marketing companies have a strong inventory of products that you will provide to your clients, meeting a specific need in your target market. As your team of downline distributors grows, you receive compensation benefits from their sales as well, because you are the original recruiter. Simply put, the larger your team, the better your return. 

You want to go back in a time machine and relive the old days of your younger, fitter and slimmer self?? Well if you just said yes, you are a part of the targeted market: everyone!  With their insane sale profit numbers, this company always makes the list for the top 20 MLM companies in the world, bringing in about $1.4 billion dollars in yearly revenue.  Not only are you selling a product people already have so much trust in, but the new associate cost to sign up is only $30, really one of the lowest.
I spent about 3 years selling Amway back in the 70’s. There was a lot of hype but I made enough money to achieve several of my more modest financial goals. I went on to use some of what I learned to make extra money in various ventures and eventually started a small business out of my home. The business grew until mainstream retailers began offering the same product I was selling at comparable prices. The MLM as a learning tool has some value as long as the product is decent. This MLM ranking is a good way to attract attention and I am curious about Your service. I am selective about what I spend my time and effort on.

Perfect reply That’s exactly what gives network marketing a bad name. Sheesh. If you find something you’re passionate about then go for it. But first ask, how many people can you personally find who have replaced their income at such n such a company? I’m grateful to say I have hundreds of dōTERRA advocates who have, and who go about it with integrity. Thanks for all the research, it was fun to read. I’d recommend looking at retention as well sometime.
If you thought candy or root beer when you read the name of this company, you're not alone. Either I have a sweet tooth or this company sounds like it sells sweets. AND it actually does (saltwater taffy, currently), among other things! Unlike other companies which focus on one or two product lines, Sass N Frass is like a kitschy boutique stocked full of novelty bath bombs with costume jewelry tucked inside, essential oil roll-ons, leggings in every size from girls to women, pie and dip mixes, adult coloring books, and more, all of which you'll bring to your customers via in-person parties or social media and all at a fair price point which in theory should keep your products moving along nicely.

Hey Jesse, you forgot about Primerica! My brother makes a lot of money with them and he’s only been there 6 years and he makes $8-10 Grand a month now! Kindve wish I would’ve started with him when he first joined because the company does have great concepts and just recently was named one of Forbes top 50 trustworthy companies! That’s awesome! I didn’t have the time to commit then but I just got rolling 2 months ago and I’ve made $900 this month and will be over a grand once I help this next family get a policy in place! I so wish I would’ve got started years ago!


A new project hitting the list, because it will have a huge following no matter what.  We know that crowds of affiliates from other MLMs will tail over to this company. Why? Well this is a BK Boreyko’s business, the same person who had just dealt with the FTC with Vemma.  And there’s no doubt in my mind that he’s planning to make another public attempt.
Diets…fad diets, new diets, old diets…it’s an endless story especially in the 2000’s, and this company is one of those companies.  The FDA had a run-in with these guys and they are not in the greatest standings with the BBB either, which seem to be the norm with weight loss pills of the “magical results” variety.   Well the good news for this business is that they’ve managed to keep trending for 5 years (that’s a pretty good streak), and the company reps are earning a colossal 50% in commissions.

I am currently a LegalShield associate (but not active) and have previously been involved with USANA. I was very recently approached about another opportunity with Shopping Sherlock. The video presentation looks interesting and it also seems like an affiliate-type program. I’m giving it some consideration. However, there’s a one-time fee of $249 plus a monthly membership fee of $34.95. Any thoughts or knowledge of this business?
Freelancing — This is another at-home gig I love to recommend. Freelancers provide some sort of service, and often they’ll do it online. Freelance jobs include things like web design, bookkeeping, social media management, and being a virtual assistant. Even if you don’t think you have marketable skills, all it takes is a conversation with someone about what you know how to do, and you’ve got the potential for a freelance business. Plus, you can always deep-dive into something that interests you (Facebook ads, landing page design, marketing on Pinterest, podcast production, and more) and specialize in that area. You can even freelance as a customer service representative for other online entrepreneurs!

Usborne Books is an America-based direct sales company established in 1989 and is an extension of Usborne Educational Development/Publishing Corporation founded in 1973 by Peter Usborne. Usborne Books has been recognized a couple of times as one of the best small companies in America.

I partnered with a Health and Wellness company that has been on the BBB with an A+ rating for the last 28 years. Their products are free of harsh chemicals and believe it or not are products that absolutely every person uses in their homes, just healthier and safer versions of cleaners, beauty products and now their weight loss line. Our entire business can be done online, from hosting presentations to enrollments and even our trainings are online. Even our customers earn money, not just our employees! What could be better? Healthier, safer, make money using, make money sharing, completely safe around children, and the company is soooooo supportive. I had an issue with one of business partners and her enrollemnt she was trying to get signed up, I literally hopped on the computer and sat in a chat with a customer servie representative from the company and they figured it all out in a matter of minutes. This is a truly residual income business, I am still making money for my first product introduction in June of last year, that is almost a year of getting paid for the same thing every month!!!! This company could not be any more mommy friendly with hours that work around when you need them,easy access to support and a system so easy your kids could make the money for you!

Nikken is an MLM company created in 1975 by Isamu Masuda with the main goal of producing effective wellness solutions. Its first product, The Magstep, was focused on solving body fatigue and sore feet problems. In 1989, the company expanded to North America and has since entered new markets (countries) all around the world. The company makes about $9 billion in revenues annually.

Another nutritional MLM selling another magical superfruit with a marked up price tag. So what? Their story might not be interesting, but their bottom line is: they’ve expanded to 44 countries and counting after just over a decade in operation. On top of that, they provide extensive sales training and good commission rates to their reps, which is pretty rare nowadays.


The reality is, only a tiny percentage of representatives actually realize the high earnings advertised in MLM promotional materials and at meetings. Some say the big earners got in early and are positioned at the top; however, like other MLM data, this is misleading. First, it suggests that getting in early is all you need to do to be successful, which of course is false. Success comes from work. Second, many companies have been around for over 30 years, and some of their top selling reps joined last year or five years ago.
Hi there :) another great company to work for is Le-Vel. It’s the first company to ever have wearable nutrition that helped with mental clarity, appetite control and is time released.. We offer so many more Greta products and have helped thousands of people. It’s great for energy, body aches and pains, headaches/migraines and weight management and best it’s 100% natural, gluten free and gmo free. They also have a car allowance of up to $800 once you reach a certain amount a month.. Check it out http://www.thethrivedream.le-vel.com
I have been reading a lot about DSD the last few days and am almost ready to signup. My biggest concern however has to do with paypal withholding funds during the first few months. That is, a person sales items at profit on ebay, then goes to Amazon to dropship the items to the customers, but can’t use the funds that they received from sells on ebay to make the purchase on Amazon because paypal is holding the funds until proof is brought that the sold item has already been shipped.
You are right in that most MLM have monthly dues and have high entry fees to be distributors or consultants. You are also right in that most MLM companies focus on recruitment and not product sales. I’ve been working with Arbonne now for quite a while and none of those comments apply to this company, which is why I believe they have survived and are only growing at this point, despite some people’s opinion that they will soon be relics like Mary Kay. To become a consultant is a mere $75 dollars, the kit is involved with all free samples and material. Product loading is prohibited. Each event we host regularly ends with most if not all attendees becoming a preferred client for $20 joining fee for the first year and a $15 renewal every year with no monthly expectation and a guaranteed minimum of 20% off of all stock at all times and 40% off of all packages at all times. Not only that consultants can will their business down 6 generations, and the Mercedes incentive is for a purchase, not a lease. We do look to grow our network, but we emphasize this takes hard work and is not a get rich quick scheme. While you hit the nail on the head with most MLM businesses, there are MLM businesses like Arbonne who are a cut above the rest and who are in the habit of not putting pressure on anyone attending to either purchase or join as a consultant. We only want the best in our network and we have thousands of examples of very successful men and woman to show for it. Great article!!!
