I am passionate about MLM (Multilevel Marketing also known as Network Marketing or Direct Sales). MLM is a powerful business model that opens the door to opportunity, especially for women. Unfortunately, some people still associate MLM with "pyramid schemes". I find this so incredibly disheartening and this is why I like to educate people about MLMs.
First off, pyramid schemes are ILLEGAL. Young Living, for example, has been around since 1994. If it were a "pyramid scheme", it would no longer exist. The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) will shut down a company that operates unethically. In Young Living, over 90% of customers have never sold any product. We are a product-first company, this is why 90% of customers simply buy the product and never sell it. If a company had a higher percentage of brand partners compared to customers, it would be questionable and it would eventually be shut down by the FTC.
