He makes well over $125,000 a year and he introduced me into Pre-Paid Legal. He has his CPA and one of his clients who is a doctor told him about the company. There has to be another reason why people join network marketing from all walks of life. There is some legitimacy to the concept. Just like in everything, you reap what you sow.


I think it's important to differentiate between outright scams, and legitimate business. If the pre-paid legal you sell is legit (the services are provided as advertised), and you aren't badgering or misleading people to sell it, no problem. It's just another form of insurance. Maybe not the best value since most people don't make use it, but we aren't nannies. If you get compensated by drawing others in to the network, and especially if a substantial portion of your income comes from recruiting, you approach my personal line for what constitutes a scam, and your defense of the "business" loses credibility.

Selling a product or service that has value contributes to the overall economy. Recruiting people to an organization withdraws value, it does not provide it, except to the elite few at the top.
