If you do somehow succeed in MLM you'll be working as hard if not harder than any other successful business man. The working from home, living on the beach thing is real but you'll have to actually be doing work, mostly cold calls and begging leads for money. You don't get health benefits and the company you're selling can still go out of business just like any other company you'd be working for. Your sales still feed corporate MLM (your boss). It's crazy that people think they're running their own business, they're not, how do you think the MLM founders get their strip club money?
