    The difference is that one is legal and one is not. Chain letters are illegal pyramid schemes because there is no product. Businesses that sell crappy weight loss shakes are legal MLMs.

    Coming back to California from Utah the other day I passed a building that struck me as funny. It was a commercial building on the outskirts of a small town that housed only two businesses. One half of the building was the local pharmacy. The other half was the local mortuary. I bet there is a lot of overlap in the client base of the two.

    OK, it was more sad than funny.

    I just stocked up on my meats, eggs and a few veggies and snuck out.
    I was in the supermarket (different one this time) and a lady was promoting coca cola. Had a little stand with all the advertising and everything. Hundreds of little plastic cups were being offered. People were drinking that stuff. Going back for more. I seen a woman encouraging her kids to go and get some. Deary me!
    FTM. I'm not biased, I hope everybody beats the mags!

    MLM I s not sales, it recruiting, hiring, and training the people under you. You -might- make some sales, but if you don't recruit, you don't make the big bucks promised.

    Actually, that's not true. You can make very good amounts of money by doing only sales. You just make more when you get more people to do the same... the model is much like a franchise. Vi's crap is a pyramid from what I also understand.

    I have been in two MLM's (still in one) that I make good money from. At this point I am not working in sales or promotion of either and still get a residual check. Like the cable company. And the products in those companies that I have chosen to do business with are ALWAYS better than SAD stuff.

    Funny moment:

    Morbidly obese woman on train talking to friend and drinking soda
    "she's eating steak for breakfast, STEAK! I mean that's just not right is it?"

    Sooo hard not joining in someone else's conversation.

    Coworker observes me eating a spoonful of Kerrygold butter while I wait for my cauliflower and beef roast to heat up in the microwave.

    Coworker: "Don't you know butter is BAD for you?"
    Me: "No, I don't know that. Butter is good for me."
    Coworker: <shakes her head in disbelief as she dumps a package of ramen noodles into a big bowl of water in preparation for microwaving>

    Me: healthy weight, exercises regularly, very seldom gets sick.
    Coworker: obese, diabetic, uses a cane because she has "bad knees", can't walk 100 feet without getting winded, often out sick for a variety of illnesses.

    We are the same age.
