MLM is icky, always was always will

MLM is really icky. Why is that? A lot of people who are not professional salesman join MLM and end up doing a lot of things they are not supposed to do. E.g. pressuring friends and family to buy stuff etc. or join them. How many of them do Natural Selling?

Majority of these people quit soon. And are replaced by new idiots. Cycle continues. MLM companies don't do much about it as such people are responcible for majority of their sales. In many cases, these people buy stuff they don't need to meet quota.

How can this be improved?

They just need to join Passport. = )

Seriously, education and technology is killing the MLM scam. Solid information is available to help the average person build a profitable business and it's available for free. I would put our www.passportu.com and www.mlmpodcasts.com up against any $300 Quixtar weekend seminar.

People will eventually figure it out.

I've listened to those pod casts. I prefer to

- listen pod cast on my way to work or in gym

as compared to

- Travel 12 hours
- Spend $85 + $80 bus ride
- Spend $100 hotel, $50 food
- Sit on a dark hall all day
- listen to nut jobs praising God
- Shake hand with over condescending uplines
- try to understand weird accents
- Travel 12 more hours
- Go work on Monday without getting any sleep at night.

BUT

With all this education and technology, which MLM attracts more associates? Quixtar or Passport?

I'm sure that Quixtar attracts more people because of the 2-5 year lie and promise of easy money.

The truth may lead to slower growth, but I can sleep well at night.

Quixtar attracts more person as they have 30 years headstart.

Quixtar attract more people per person? This is news to me. Given their reputation. I thought people would be contacting you via your blog?
