You know what sucks about MLM in general in my opinion?

The fact that it is necessary to pressure your friends, co-workers, family, etc. into joining in order to succeed.

All the people I have ever known who got into MLM end up alienating their friends and having to be very forceful and pushy to make money.

If you have a product or service that is in demand and good, you would have to resort to these tactics to get customers. If it was really worthwhile, you would see stores, catlogs, web sites, etc. all over the place where you could buy the stuff. I would even go so far as to say that buyers from grocery stores and other retailers would want to stock the items on the shelves to meet the demand.

Investors and venture capitalists would be all over the concept to get into the action...but no...these schemes rely on the small, ignorant individual who is looking for a way to get rich quick.

And don't go on about how it takes work to make anything work. Everyone realizes that. The whole fantasy that is promoted by the industry is how much money you can make merely by watching your downline expand while you just sit back and watch the cash roll in.
