It is interesting that Direct Marketing is still often compared to illegal pyramid schemes. It is helpful to have a post like this explaining what a pyramid scheme is, and how the Forever Living Direct Marketing system differs from it.
Every role I have been in has had a staffing structure that looks like a pyramid when drawn on paper.
What I particularly like about the Direct Marketing system is that the structure of the organisation is in that shape, but that the amount you earn at each position in the structure is reliant on the amount of work you put in to developing your business, not to your position in the structure. This means that I know of many occasions where a team member is earning more than the team leader who recruited them. You won’t get that in a traditional company.
Another reason why I am so pleased to be working in Direct Marketing where the only way to improve your business is to help others develop their own successful businesses, with the side effect of helping people with their health and well being with such wonderful products.
Get in touch with me if you would like to find out more about whether this would work for you.

Once you have clear goals then you will find the time to do what needs to be done. It is amazing how many things you do that aren’t so important if you need to use the time to build a new life and an income.

I often meet people who are really keen to join Forever Living, but just don’t consider that they have enough time to start a new business.  You might be unemployed and looking for a job, you might be in a job already which demands long hours and doesn’t give much respite, or maybe you have lots of hobbies which take up your time. Whatever it is, you are a busy person and you don’t have any ‘free’ time.  Whatever you are doing you will be filling all of the time available with something (there is no such thing as free time)  – the trick is in deciding if there is anything you are currently doing that you could reduce or replace with your new business.

My story is that I already run a successful IT business with my husband, which has been our primary source of household income since 2000…
