    My cousin is actually part of the Herbalife in our province. She is actually the very first in our province and I heard her business is really going well. She got invited to Korea and all and she even got an award. While I am happy truly happy for her, I don’t support MLM,too. MLMs, I feel like a recruitment thing wherein you can get more money by recruiting rather than the products. I never tried Hebalife but I heard there are serious issues with it. I don’t know. For me naman, I don’t want to forever take the product to maintain a slim figure. It’ll just burn a hole in your pocket lang. Might as well go primitive- exercising and eating right

      Oh, hello there! That was the quickest comment I’ve ever received. 🙂
      Thanks for visiting my blog.

      Yeah Herbalife is a really good company. Like I mentioned, I signed up twice with this company because I believe in its business. And you’re right. They send out qualified members abroad to attend meetings and all for free. And their success stories were incredible. Nagniningning ang mga mata ko at pumapalakpak pati tenga ko while I was listening to them. 🙂

      But I guess, not all businesses or investments are for you. And after trying it twice, I realized that it wasn’t really for me.

      And I agree with you. There are other alternatives out there that we can try to have a slimmer and healthier figure… Ouch! And I’m guilty of not doing that… 🙂

    I’ve been with MLM business too when I was in college and after college. It was through networking business I improved my skills in marketing. I’ve tried to be on the top, top as in enough to pay my needs in school(college) and my sister needs in college. I am so grateful I was once a networker. With their training I was really a good speaker and marketer until now (maybe)
    MLM is like hotcakes too, sales are high when it’s hot..well there are some thrive longer out there especially if the products are really good.

    I’ve tried various networking business, from beauty and health products, kitchen utensils, e loading, insurance, telecommunication and more. Based on experience, it last 2-3 years I got a good income then beyond that no more. Reasons are, there are more new MLM business sprouted and better.
    Please don’t quote me for my statement because I know a lot of people who are successful-have cars, earn millions from MLM too.

    For me, I am just tired to recruit and recruit. I prefer to just sale the products(but anyway as netwroker you should use the product first as living proof and it would be easy to explain once you’ve tested it).

    When I know friends who are part or member of networking business? I am very happy for them because like me, that was my marketing or shall I say my entrepreneurial skills started. The trainings and seminars are way more than the money you’ve invested “that if you attended the ladderized trainings”. Then all you’ve learned will be useful the rest of your life.
    -sorry for a long post-

    Thank you so much Marge for sharing your MLM experiences…
    Glad it worked for you.

    Like I said, there’s nothing wrong with MLM especially if you think that this is for you and if you believe that you’ll grow personally and professionally in this kind of business. You’re right, the training and seminars are
    worth your investment. Not only you earn, but also you learn. Plus, you also get to share both your earnings and learnings with others.

    I also agree that recruiting people gets tiring eventually. It’s exciting at first especially if your recruits believe in the business just like you. But when you try another MLM business and you recruit again, it may not be as exciting as the first time. And the people you recruit may also get tired of listening and accepting your new offers.

    (I don’t mind your long comment. I even appreciate it 🙂

    Great post (and blog) you have here 🙂

    Hmm..same here, I was invited more than once by my friends who love to flood my FB wall with their uhm, “Yumaman ka na ba sa pagdududa mo?” posts while flashing their P500 and P1000 bills (I’m actually more concerned with their safety than their business though. haha!) Well you’re right MLM is a good opportunity. Mahirap lang talga para sa iba makita ang good sa bad or worse, scam. By the way, I’ve also written an article about MLM (http://www.pisoandbeyond.com/2014/03/is-network-marketing-business-scam.html) and a simple guide how to find a good one, which must be able to answer atleast 5 questions –>> http://www.pisoandbeyond.com/2014/04/5-questions-to-ask-in-every-mlm-company.html

    Thanks and continue to share! Cheers ^_^

      Hi Jeff, thanks for visiting Pinay Investor and thanks for your comment. 🙂
      I’ve seen similar posts din on fb and I’m equally happy for them who truly earn from MLM.
      Not everybody does and sadly I wasn’t one of them.. 🙁

    Hi Janice, I am a member of a well known Pharmaceutical company in USA. And we are now carrying their nutritional products here in the Philippines. Please email me if you are interested and I am happy to discuss

    Hi Janice,
    Very well shared. I just have one question for you, though. 🙂

    hi there Janice.. Awesome post, indeed a very informative article about MLM. After reading your whole post, seemed you belong to what they called “burned-out networker”. I just wanted to highlight what you said about “you are not quite good in recruiting” One thing I’ve learned about MLM is that “Learning is everything.. ” you have to learn how to do the business first (for you to be able to share/present the business with confidence, in this case, you have to attend massive training and do your homework. Leaders and successful MLM networker starts by knowing how to effectively share/present the business confidently.

    Your last line ” Malay mo maging upline pa kita, pag nag join ako.” Nakakatuwa lang. I can feel your sentiments because I myself have been to few networking businesses before but failed. Sabi ko sa sarili ko, hindi na talaga ako mag nenetwork business. But just recently, binigyan ako ng sample product ko ng friend ‘Shake Off phyto fiber’ detox and colon cleansing from Edmark International Group of companies. I decided to join kasi discounted yung mga products bilhin if member ka. I love their products kasi. Yun ang reason nag join ako. I wasnt even interested to know and check sa marketing plan nila. Wala akong plano mag network kasi gusto ko mag product user lang. Binigyan ko din ng product nung isa kung friend and she liked it. Nagpa member din pero pareho kami, product user lang. But when our upline explained to us the marketing plan ng Edmark, ay ang unique at ang ganda. Sabi ko, matalino ang gumawa ng marketing plan nila. So I decided to give it a go. It worked kasi yung products are very effective talaga, mura at madaling ibenta. So I’m happy to be Edmarker. Check mo lang. Google it. Malay mo nga, if you liked it give it a try! 🙂
