I know exactly what you're talking about and I have never liked network marketing for that reason. However, I have found a wonderful product that sells itself. You give it to people to try and they love it, they call you and want to order more. It is called Mona Vie, it is a fruit juice that contains the acai berry from Brazil. Oprah had Nicholas Perricone (the world famous anti-aging doctor) on her show and he endorsed the acai berry as the #1 super food in the world. It is unbelieveable. It is full of antioxidents, phytonutrients, fatty acids, vitamins etc. After drinking it for 3 wks, my arthritis is better than it has been in years, my psoriasis cleared up, my eyesight is better, my finger nails are stronger, I have more energy and I sleep better. The company is 2.5 yrs. old and has over 1 billion dollars in sales. It is growing at a rate of 22% a year. I can't look my friend in the eye and say that they need Amway soap, but I can look at them and tell them how phenomenal this fruit juice is because I am so passionate about the product. Also, the compensation plan is better than any other mlm I have ever seen. It also is helping to save the rain forest in Brazil . By harvesting these berries, the trees are being coveted and protected. The company also gives back to the community. They have given several million dollars to the poverty stricken children in Brazil. The company gives back 50% of their profits to the distributors. It sounds too good to be true, but I am doing it and it is unbelieveable! Go to mymonavie.com/debbiendon to learn more. If you are interested let me know. I will send you a bottle of juice to try. I can also refer you to some books and literature about network marketing. The wellness industry is a trillion dollar industry. 8,000 baby boomers a day are turning 60.
My own personal experience. If you google monavie you will find tons of stuff.
