Multi-Level Marketing: Risks and Rewards

My first job out of college was for a multi-level marketing company… cold-crawling through the DC burbs in pursuit of coupon book sales. This harrowing and short-lived stunt gave me one perspective on MLMs. For Best Company (third-party comparisons of everything from fundraising sites to pest control), I allowed myself to consider both pros and cons of this style of self-employment. Read my (relatively) unbiased report of ‘Multi-Level Marketing: Risks and Rewards’.

It was as if I were in the audience for some grand spectacle. I didn’t remember my arrival and couldn’t fathom how to leave, only that I wanted to stay.

It may sound like a travel site, but The Fearless Flyer is a one-stop-shop for all things related to online business-building.
