    Welcome to TFSA, Colin
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Hi Colin - welcome to the forum.
    An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don't. - Anatole France

    Welcome Colin, what does a "full-time network marketer" entail and for which company do you work?

    Hi Chris,

    I do not hold a normal "JOB" (Journey Of the Broke). I exclusively do network marketing (MLM in the old terminology) which is better termed referral marketing.

    Having been involved with NWM, Golden Products, Quattro, Balltron, Herbalife, Amway etc. i have settled for the much "easier" IFA (Independent Field Advertiser) business opportunity from Clientele. No buying, selling or distribution of stock or products. No selling of insurance or giving of financial advice. As you will know, network marketing is basically introducing potential new people to a companies marketing / distribution system.

    Your primary function is prospecting (identifying potential new network marketers) Inviting them to a presentation of the business opportunity and compensation plan. When someone joins, you adopt the role of mentor, teacher, coach. No matter which business you are involved with, you will only achieve success if you assist your key appointments in achieving financial gain.

    Donald Trump, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates and Robert Kiyosaki, amongst others, recommend network marketing. It is primarily using 1% of 100 peoples effort instead of 100% of your own effort freeing up more time for building your business.

    Check out the following site for more info. www.ifa.co.za

    Hope i have answered your question.

    Best regards, Colin

    Bearing in mind this discussion on Herbalife - I'm starting to think this is where the "pyramid scheme" accusation problems actually start for MLM plans. The primary function surely has to be to move product (in this case insurance through Clientelle).

    And if you can't achieve some level of success on that alone, but have to put other people into the same non-viable position to actually be a viable business proposition yourself... then the accusation of "pyramid scheme" becomes disturbingly valid.
