Multilevel Marketing: Last Week Tonight With John Oliver on you tube is a great explanation of why mlm businesses are awful.
My husband and i did get into tupperware and had a nice run until the Bosses put the kibosh on the good times at a circuit assembly. We did fall for Ganoderma ("healthy" coffee with mushrooms!); never got any converts but we were liking the taste of it ourselves until the price doubled. We bought products without joining, from Amway, of course; Young Living, Melaleuca, Nature's Sunshine, Townecraft cookware, Home Interiors, Beachbody, doTerra, Herbalife, Juice Plus, Mary Kay, Longaberger, Morinda, Scentsy, Shaklee, Pampered Chef, and Youngevity.
