I have been in two of these multi-level marketing deals. Both times it was really just done out of sympathy to help a friend/relative. Both of them encouraged high-pressure tactics to sell their products. Both of the people I was helping were depressed, down and out, and I don't like companies that take advantage of people.

On the other hand, I have bought the products of a couple of companies that sell cosmetics, or home products, through their representatives and I have been pretty happy with the results.

There is a way to get rich quick. Invent a seminar and action plan that is just complex enough that people understand part of it and then buy promotional time to hawk it to idiots and just be sure it's legal enough to stay out of a jail cell. People never get rich following this crap, just the people who sell it and stay on the right side of the law (or make enough that they have some left after the feds take some).

If you are looking for a legitimate easy money opportunity, become a banker, make BAD loans and get bailout $$ from the governement. Another option is to become a CEO, run your company into the ground, lose money for your shareholders, and get bailout $$ from the governement. One other surfire easy money scheme is to get elected to congress then sell out to the highest bidder. You'll live a cushy existence for the rest of your life without ever having to do an honest days work again.
