His side business was MLM (not his products, but those of the company) and he worked hard for a few years, developed a team, etc. he was able to make a net monthly profit between $500-/$1000- from a combination of his and his teams sales. Now he has the option to buy back in to 'reactivate' his position. Not a significant investment, it would cost less than $500- to get back in, with no loss of his past team.
I thought if he was keeping the business for his personal purchases, we might as well put a little time in, and try to get that residual income back on track.
I was looking to see if anyone had success in this manner. It does seem that the vast majority does have negative experiences with Network Marketing or MLM. The company does have legitimate products, but I can understand the concern (given the pay structure) for some to say it's just a step above a Ponzi, which does alert me.
