I think ACN is an interesting example of MLM

because it’s thriving, and it manages one of the “cleanest” images out there. ACN has been going for 17 years in many countries. The products (services) are legitimate: small savings on re-sold telecomms. They’ve had charges laid against them by the Canadian and Australian governments, and beat the rap both times. They’re somehow able to claim that selling the product is every representative’s focus and therefore it’s not an illegal pyramid scheme. Whereas in reality, recruiting is all-important to any chance of making money. And all the pitfalls of MLM are evident.
