Let’s put it this way, the early version of “Scentsy”’ is not as virtually hot or trendy, but they are however staying significant.  If you like to have parities or play host to others, you’re better equipped to handle this business “opportunity” than others, because that’s what this game is all about.  While you throw these parties, you also have to encourage your guests to whip out their cash and credit cards to buy, buy, buy. Buy what? Candles…Luckily, there are better opportunities to make extra cash these days.
The uniqueness of the Ambit Energy is the company does not seek to create a lot of noise about it nor promises to create any insane innovations. It just offers simple services to the people such as of providing gas service to home or electricity and all these at a cheaper rate than its competitors. It offers people an exceptional opportunity to save money and this approach does work.
Tracy Willard of California began her MLM career out of necessity.  “Prior to getting involved in my business, I told my friends to never let me join one of those things… but when our family was hit by the mortgage crisis I had to do something different.”  She started her business with the intention some retirees may also find themselves.  “I started with the idea that I just needed to make my month easier.  My company helped me figure out what I needed to do in order to make an extra $500 per month.”
First, Elliot, thank you for this article. Your sense of truly wanting to help comes through and it’s refreshing. Like MommyFinance, I too have suffered PTSD from previous runs at MLM but I have been looking for legitimate ways of making extra income and seems I’m being directed toward trying MLM again. Your article gave me hope that there are some good ones out there. What you said about finding the one that fits me and leaving a legacy for family really turned on a light for me and I greatly appreciate that. A wine business is not quite up my alley but I will certainly direct those who might be interested your way.

The great thing about this day and age is that there are so many opportunities to be a direct sales person even if you are in introvert or can’t get out of the house. Facebook parties are huge, social media is a great way to spread awareness, you can even start a blog about your products and experience with them! While in home parties are always fun, and usually have great sales, they are no longer the only way to approach direct sales!
Full disclaimer: I do not work for any of these companies, I don't work in direct sales at all. I'm being transparent in what I think of these companies and what I know about them to help balance what you might be hearing from friends or family who already sell for these companies. If you feel I've misrepresented a company please chime in below and let us know what your experience has been!
I am a Founding Consultant for a wonderful new ground floor direct selling company that is currently wide open in the US. The company has been in prelaunch for over a year and during that time has had great success testing their products in several locations in the US. The company was able to create a wonderful new training program and website that makes it so simple to provide training to you and your downline and serve your customers. If the idea of being in business, being the first in your area, and selling upscale products that are guaranteed to be the best in quality and workmanship sounds like something you might like to do. Then, we should talk. I always ask my customers one simple question, “Where can you find the perfect gift for every occasion, have it personalized at no extra charge, gift wrapped and delivered for you and you never have to leave your home to do it?”

It’s so mom friendly, almost every consultant is a mom because they fell in love with these books for their kids!  Moms bring nursing babies to our annual convention, they bring babies to parties, etc.  But the best part is, it is what you make of it- if your kid is sick and you can’t focus on the business for a few days, okay, you’ll do it when you can.
Appreciate the hard work studying this… Im apart of the #1 company on there Advocare… have been for 7 years and one of the higher paid single guys in the nation… I just have to disagree with “over priced Products” comment. There is a mark up on every product in the world… Our products actually work which is why those endorsers you mentioned turn down high level incomes with other companies to endorse us for a stipend of products per month. Advocare has numerous people making a great profit and even more just enjoying a product they would pay double what they do for to feel the way they do. Success rate isnt low my friend… Its just the quit rate is through the roof. Highly recommend everyone seeing this and you sir to watch “Rise of the Entrepreneur” by Eric Worre on Itunes to get some serious facts about the MLM industry. Thanks for all the research and blessings!
In March I joined an MLM company and I’m lost… my first reaction to network marketing was I’m not a sales person, to which I was told it’s not about sales but about building relationships. The other thing that makes me crazy is I see a lot of folks who appear so fake with their bubbly “everything is coming up roses and bubble gum” that I cringe. I’m honest to a fault and happy but not giddy. I feel like I have writers block in that I’m not sure what direction to take to get my business going, the struggle is real right now… Any thoughts or suggestions I can take away.
Hello, I loved reading all this info, it was so helpful. I want badly to get out of the 2 hour commute and hours of being stuck in an office. I am a maker, a fiddler, I need a change. I am an RN and very interested in great health products. I want to find a company I can love and be proud of the products. I have seen something called 7.2 wellness ( 7point 2) but have not found anyone actually using it or selling it. Has anyone heard of this one?
If the official site of the MLM program you want to join does not have any of these features, you will probably have a hard time with making sales, especially if you have limited experience with selling products. A program that provides you with resources designed to help you become a better seller wants you to succeed and will help you generate more revenues.
Market America is just as known for their massive discounted products portal as they are for their crazy rich CEOs. I’m talking Forbes list, mansion in Biscayne Bay and penthouse in Manhattan, celeb bffs, and giant yachts rich…all thanks to MLM. They’ve hit their fair share of SEC-shaped road blocks, but Market America is still going strong at #29 on the DSN Global 100.
Not all MLM companies are created equal. Many see an initial burst of success followed by a gradual tapering off of profits, causing them to collapse and go out of business. MLM companies that succeed have sound business models, both for those who run the company and for those who sell product and recruit new sales agents. There are many sites devoted to MLM rankings, creating lists of companies likely to provide a return on investment to sales agents interested in the industry.
Arbonne– (this is my friend April’s link) Arbonne has nutritional supplements & detox packages, skin care and makeup. Here’s why my friend April loves the company-  “the long-standing integrity of the company, commitment to quality & safety, focus on giving and serving others (not on personal gain) … but the compensation plan is incredibly generous which just frees you up to bless even more people.”
Hmmm, what should I say about this company, well it still seems like they are far from “the finest and most-respectable retail energy provider in America,” I feel this way because it was just a few years ago that they were dealing with a class action lawsuit.  But when you have $1.5 billion in revenue in the bank from your global business, a lawsuit doesn’t really seem to break your stride.

I’m with LifeVantage and TeaLife. Both great companies to work with. LV we have 6 ways of being paid..commissions plus residual income on something no one else has. Big pharmacy is trying to synthetically create what we have in drug form that will have side effects. But we are natural. TeaLife is organic loose teas that are so yummy! 30% commissions on teas and 20% tea accessories. I order from both these companies as well because I believe in them 100%. If anyone has any questions please email me: dawnmahaney1@outlook.com
It all sounds good on paper, yet there is a seemingly endless debate over whether these companies and programs are legitimate business opportunities or not, so I dug in and got the real scoop.  As a result, I believe that the entire industry is poised for explosive growth and can be one of the most significant solutions to America’s current retirement savings crisis.

#1- Pick a company that you are passionate about – I can’t stress this enough! There are so many companies out there that you can find one that gets you super excited. Maybe their products have been a godsend to you, maybe you love their mission, maybe it’s something that is super fun for you, whatever your reason make sure the company you pick gets you fired up and excited! (Scroll down for an awesome list of companies!) Make sure to take into consideration start-up costs, and commission rates they vary from company to company.
My advice to someone looking into DS is to find something that you actually love and know that you could share with other people, not sell it to them, but share with them why you love it. I do fairs and events and I share with people how amazing these little hair clips are. I get excited about them and it shows. 90% of the women who try them on, end up buying them because they love them. So find something you LOVE and not something just to sell.
An analysis of 32 income disclosure statements from direct selling companies by TruthInAdvertising.org found that 80 percent of distributors, or people selling their products, grossed less than $1,200 per year before expenses. At about half of those companies, the majority of distributors made no money at all. "Given that context, any income claim that expressly states or implies that this is a way for someone to gain financial freedom, to become wealthy, travel the world, become a stay-at-home parent is just false and deceptive," says Bonnie Patten, executive director for TruthInAdvertising.org.

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?
Isagenix’s vision is to impact world health and free people from physical and financial pain, and in the process, create the largest health and wellness company in the world.
