I’ve been involved in an MLM for 5 years and haven’t had any success from it. I don’t have the personality for it. Hence why I’m a Medium writer now lol. However, I’ve never been taught the shady business practices you talk about here. There are good organizations out there who teach you how to coach and treat people right. I’ve never had to maintain an inventory and I don’t know how these people go bankrupt doing so. They are being taught poorly. I still use all the products from the company I partnered with since they are high quality. My coaches are good people too so I’m not going to buy products from companies like Target.
