      Not so long ago I went to an Herbalife meeting. I didn’t even know the company at the time, but the fact that they were advertising on yahoo’s front page led me to believe that they were legit… And so they were, but the whole experience turned out to be rather

      unpleasant and quite shocking.

      For all of you who may not know, Herbalife is a company that sells health, food and cosmetic products, and it’s structured as an MLM scheme. Also, if you buy a certain amount of products - not much - you’re allowed to become a reseller. That was my main interest back then.

      Anyway, as we - future prospects - went into the room we were recieved by a wave of very loud music, a lot of hype and ten to twelve incredibly smiling faces. These people turned out to be Herbalife agents. One after the other, they went ahead and ...

      told us how extatic they were with the products and how amazingly their lives had changed since they’d become consumers and resellers. Finally, some guy who was the most experienced seller of them all, gave us some advice on the most devious ways he used to attract new buyers to his

Warning This is a pyramid scheme, it may seem tempting and make sense on paper, but in reality most people LOSE money with herbalife. If you want quick money there are ways that will actually help you out. Steer clear of any shady company that relies heavily on you recruiting people.

i have to disagree with you here. companies that recruit, are not shady that is the model they work on. have you not heard of referral marketing , affiliate marketing. its the same. it works on creating a network of people who then promote products of a company and with the turn over generated, the company compensates them with commission. its leveraging man power and time. however there are shady network companies, i must add . these are ones which don’t have any product to promote. they just work on cash. for instance deposit 100 , refer 3 get 1000. this is a problem. and if logic is a subject you like you will understand, otherwise will keep this discussion for the next time.
