OMG my parents sold Amway back in the 70's and early 80's and almost lost everything because of it. I don't understand why people get involved in the pyramid schemes.

You forgot the worst part. People actually lose weight and get more vitamins and nutrients than if they keep eating burgers and fries. The nerve if them. And if u get 3 people to buy it you get yours free. It really helps u lose weight. But I guess you're right. Tis better to have gastric bypass than do something actually good for your body and if u want to ( no one forces u) you can make money or drink your delicious shake free Of charge.

What happens if someone drops out because it is quite expensive? Do you have to find someone else to buy from you?
Oh I see how it is

So, V says, you can't just stop the burgers and fries and just say exercise and lower your fat and carbs or good grief have a life saving surgery in some events..no wonder people are deleting FB people and saying this stuff..funny this is posted I was just looking yesterday to find out information about it..but, I guess with this attitude from people..NO THANKS.. that's all I need.. I guess someone will tell me.. I choose to be this way..because I had to have surgery on my knee..I wasn't exercising enough..lol

I know lots of people on this stuff and none of them are dwindling away to nothing. Think about it though, if you drink two shakes a day of anything (SLIM FAST for example) and eat only one meal along with exercise you're going to lose some weight. Slim fast is a lot cheaper. The problem with most of these programs is they want to put you on an auto shipping plan, putting the cost on a credit card. Then if you aren't disciplined enough, the next thing you know you owe hundreds of dollars on your card. Also, the drink mix isn't enough. They want you to add extra supplements to your diet. Before you know it you're into hundreds a month.

Exactly... Exercise, cut calories or carbs. Don't worry about the Visalis, or slimfast. Diet and exercise and you can do it without the cash.

Hmmm, wonder what your income is Kinder? I know lots of people who are making 6 figures through Visalus and if it weren't a good product, producing excellent results, there wouldn't be enough people utilizing it and there certainly wouldn't be quite a bit of 6 figure incomes out there. There are lots of weight loss programs out there, I suppose you are coming down on all those also and I suppose it's horrible that the producers of the Biggest Loser and their products are horrible for advertising and trying to sell their product while they make a great living doing it. Pyramid Scheme? Whatever. You make your living, Visalus Directors make theirs. No different than Mary Kay, Avon, Thirty One, Arbonne, or any other MLM home based business. Its sales. People who find themselves almost losing everything they have, as Ashland put it, obviously don't properly handle their finances when they are making a great living. Nothing different than a 9-5 job and going bankrupt.

IMO, Facebook is a powerful social media marketing machine and there are tons of very successful people making very big money from it. You obviously don't know what internet marketing and social media marketing is all about. It's free! How about that?! I do believe I was able to stop my yellow page ad because of social media.

Usually when people want to bring successful people down its because their jealous of them for thinking positive and their determination to make a difference. This forum has definitely not started off on a positive note. I think that speaks volumes about the author and their knowledge of making money. I'll take MLM financial success over working for someone else 9-5 anyday. Just ask Robert Kiyosaki and I think he'd tell you the same. Just sayn!

Only if you replace the Visalus with junk food. Eat a healthy diet and exercise, and you won't gain weight. Oooooh, scandalous!!!

I'm seeing people trying to get other people to sell Visalus and it is effecting their friends and family, along with their work. These people become so involved and focused by all the Visalus "parties" that they become so self centered on getting someone else under them in the pyramid scheme that they hurt the people around them and hurt their careers because they spend so much time at work focused on increasing their Visalus base. People who are involved or thinking about getting involved with Visalus, wake up! Visalus is not a career, it is a pyramid "scheme". If you are thinking about starting to sell Visalus, talk to the people around the person who sells Visalus and the co-workers of the person who sells Visalus if you want to get an accurate portrayal of what Visalus really is. Additionally, think about how many people back in the '90s were selling Amway, where are those people now? This is Amway all over again.
You are pretty dramatic. Destoys lives. How is that. It is a business that's all it is. I know houewives who make a lot of money doing this. They know it won't last forever. It is not a career..My goodness..XOXOXOXOXOXO!

Another get rich quick scheme, till the next one comes around.

If these people who spend so much time and money doing something productive rather than hawking glorified outrageously expensive vitamins, it would be amazing what they could accomplish.

And, oh by the way, if you post that crap on FaceBook, you are one of my FORMER friends. I dont need commercials there.

Its nothing more than the multi-level-marketing scheme's just like Amway,Starlite and all the other ones that have came and gone.The people that got in early enough is the ones making the money,and they are making it from all the ones selling it underneath them.Sooner or later those people get tired of making them money so it will fade out just like the other ones did.Those in the top selling levels are the ones that get the B.M.W's to drive which are paid for from their commission's.Soon as the money stops rolling in,the market will have several "beemers" for sale im sure.Just they they all say with the tags, i told ya so.
