|Did Success magazine ever said that network marketing is among the best paid careers of the world? |

I find that quote... idiotic, as it lit off all my skeptic sense alarms. :)
Second, no such quote can be found on Google. What Google said, is that some websites claimed that Success Magazine wrote once that "Network marketing is among the the best paid professions in the world."
Well, that's busted already, but how true is that "revised" quote? Is network marketing among the best paid professions in the world? Did Success Magazine ever published this quote?
I CANNOT find such a quote on the Success magazine website. I tried using search for "network marketing best paid" and got a bunch of articles, NONE of which contained the sentence that is even CLOSE to "network marketing is among the best paid professions in the world." I tried searching just for "best paid" (in quotes) and got NOTHING. It is likely that the quote did NOT come from Success magazine.
(To the doubters... find me the article. Magazine scan will do, or PDF reprint, or such official statements, and I'll clearly issue an update.)
But where did the quote come from?
I kept searching on Google, and found another website where they claimed that Bureau of Labor Statistics published something that shows network marketer is like #3 on the list of all professions. Here's a screenshot:
Except there is no such statistics published. Here's a link to BLS website so you can see for yourself:
In fact, not any sort of marketing (except marketing manager) is among the top 20.
Apparently someone decided to random replace two of the medical careers with affiliate marketing, and network marketing to make a FAKE ARTICLE to prove their point.
Some sheeple never thought to question the crap sandwich they've been fed, and started regurgitating the same crap.
And now you got crap over everything. Even a well-known magazine got involved.
And you wonder why people avoid MLM like the plague... it's because of this sort of sheeple behavior (and the willingness of some uplines to bent the truth to get a few more recruits)
Stay tuned as we'll check in the near future... Is the statement "MLM has produced more millionaires than any other industry" fact or myth?
