Mensa- yes, I too was in an MLM. Many years ago I had a life & health insurance registration and a Series 6 license, and I got hooked up with a financial services MLM. I did not succeed. Went to meetings, dropped some cash on marketing materials, made a fair amount of personal sales but never managed to recruit a single downline. Quickly realized that the way to success was recruiting, not selling. After about 18 months I passed my clients on to a fellow rep and transitioned out. Some people do very well, most people don’t. I don’t see it as the MLM’s fault. Any rep with average intelligence should be able to understand what they’re getting into. The MLM was a bad decision for me, it was a good decision for others. No foul, move on. I don’t understand these sob stories of Herbalife reps who have supposedly lost tens of thousands of dollars. It seems to me they must not have been paying attention.
