But joining the biz opp? And expecting to make money? That’s a different story. And that’s why I shared mine.
‘Cause multilevel marketing has a dark side.
And after being a top earner myself, I speak from experience when I say one of two things will happen for any ICP:
One, you’ll make very little; maybe even lose money.

Better business models exist. I would know:
