I truly believe that MLMs can be beneficial for a select few – but the bottom line is that MLMs are built on pixie sticks and the Leaders are dependent upon the following -e.g., You. If there is no following - no payments – there are no monies to your upline – no elevation monetarily. No bonuses, perks, benefits… no business – this spells D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R- [disaster!]. Do recruits understand that they are the food for the person above them? Do recruits understand that the Wizard wants the Witch’s Broom? – the money? the dollars? New recruits are brought in with the promise of being elevated, but in actuality new recruits put money in the Leaders pocket! It is a business model that can collapse overnight.A very apropos analogy to The Wizard Of Oz:
Imagine this! Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz embodied all of the personality traits of a stereotypical network marketer. BUT at the end she pulled back the curtain and confronted the man with the microphone – exposing him as fraudulent, self-absorbed, narcissistic and only consumed with his own self-elevation. Dorothy was a hero!
Yet having unmasked the Leader as a Fraud, she gave the Wizard yet another chance only to find, as the balloon that was to transport her home came unhinged and departed without her, that she had been duped again! For the second time she discovered that the wondrous Wizard, the man who was going to transport her to her designated dream was merely interested in his own lift to freedom and success. Dorothy was left behind.
