The MOST interesting snippet from the article:

Longaberger has $100 million in annual sales, according to the trade publication Direct Selling News, and fewer than 1,000 employees at last count.

In 2000, the company had $1 billion in sales and 8,000 employees.

=========

A 90% decline in sales? WOW - Simply WOW!

Just like baseball cards...in the '90s, too many people with tons of disposable income saw them as "investments."
Precious Moments, Kinkade prints, Hallmark Star Trek Christmas ornaments...all the same scam.
