Bon Voyage!

When I began this blog I had a lot of interest in MLM because of my involvement in Quixtar. Well It's been well over a year since I was involved in Quixtar and since I began this blog. To be honest MLM doesn't interest me in the slightest anymore.

The Truth?

I ran across a great article titled The Truth about Network Marketing by Crystal Tein. In it she talks about what network marketing is, how it works, and why it is here to say. She makes a great many points, many that I agree with. One that stood out to me is something that I have written about before.
"Many distributors have argued that in network marketing, this is avoided as the product goes directly from distributor to consumer, making the product less expensive and relatively cheaper. The argument that it is cheaper is the point that I seek to discount.

Although the products in network marketing do not need to go through the multiple channels of distribution, the incentives offered to distributors far exceed those of the salaries of the typical retail assistant in traditional business models. In the company that I was working for, for instance, top distributors are given a car and a fund for car maintenance. In addition, normal profit margins of the typical distributor are higher, high enough to add on to the cost of the product. In addition, in some network marketing companies, top distributors also get to have a cut of their companiesÂ’ profits.

Thus, it is not true that the products of network marketing companies are cheaper. If one really breaks down the budget, the prices as compared to traditional business companies are comparable."

When I was in Quixtar they never really claimed that since their products didn't have to go through a normal distribution chain that there products would be cheaper. What they said is that extra money would go to us the distributors. Which is if you think of it means basically the same thing. The members of the MLM or Network marketing company are the distribution chain. Hence why they are called distributors.

Be careful who you invest with!

This story I found happened not to far away from where I live. A man is on trial for basically taking peoples money and saying he was investing it. This is what the man supposedly had to say when one of his clients tried to get there money back.
"He said, 'You're so stupid for giving us the money. I've been doing this for 20 years. You can't catch me, the police can't catch me, the FBI can't catch me and the SEC couldn't catch me."
I just had to laugh after reading that.

I found this through blogger when I was trying to see who all in my same small town had blogs of there own.

It appears to be a blog of a guy from TEAM. When I was in TOD now called TEAM, when you reached platinum you would choose a name for your team. In this case it seems his is called Team Simplicity. To bad he only wrote one post back in February. I was really looking forward to seeing what else he would talk about.

Can you spot the lies on it? Here is a hint it's in the title.

Cutco product reviews.

Found this nice little site where people can write there own review on various Cutco products. As I suspected they are filled with glowing reviews of the products and why shouldn't they. They are some of the best knives I've ever used myself. But what did catch my eye was the most said negative part, which was that they were pricey.
