Most people who start network marketing companies were former grunts in network marketing... And sometimes, these alleged network marketing companies turned out to be outright scams.
First, let's get the more legitimate (compared to the scams) folks listed...
- Cambridge Diet top distributor Sandra Tillotson went on to co-start NuSkin
- Natural Health Trend's high-ranker Terry LaCore went on to start bHIP (and later, Rippln)
- Herbalife member Roger Daley went on to start Omnitrition International
Given that NuSkin is in trouble in China, Mr. LaCore had a run-in with the SEC, and Roger Daley's Omnitrition was slapped down by 9th Circuit Court of Appeals... Well, let's just say they are NOT egregious scams (except maybe NuSkin in China)
Then there are the outright scams... Where participants of MLM or scams went on to start and/or continue to participate in scams.
