Recently, an FB post complained about unscrupulous selling and marketing practices in MLM. Unfortunately, the accusation was a blanket misinformation about MLM practitioners.
In Reliv, we have a Compliance Department which ensures that distributors do not make false promises. Our money back guarantee and buy back policy protect customers/distributors from over eager distributors/uplines who could have incorrectly presented Reliv products and the Reliv business opportunity. Integrity is written all over our distributor policies and violation can cause a distributor to lose his/her Reliv membership. Despite the safeguards, Reliv also has its share of unscrupulous distributors who were removed for cause by the company.
In our Tagaytay Leadership Camp last 2-3 May 2014, Bernie Birch, Reliv Asia Pacific Sales Manager, shared us the following video to help understand the difference between network marketing and a pyramid scheme. It was a funny video and hits the mark that total ignorance is the reason people would believe negative things about network marketing. (To Bernie: Great training! Thumbs up!)
I just read the first chapter of John C. Maxwell's "Think On These Things. Meditations For Leaders". Introduction started with "How you think determines who you are." and last page of first chapter read "The people you associate with will greatly determine how you think." I am blessed that I got involved with Reliv and my uplines are successful Reliv leaders. I have met successful network marketers whose lives are making a difference in people lives. I will be doing network marketing for a very long time...
