    No. MLM is basically a scam. If you need lots of a money then a job is the answer. There is no way to make loads of money fast, it takes time. With MLM you're far more likely to end up worse off, not better off.

    You need lots of freinds, who trust what you say, that you are willing to allow to become exfriends.

    I do it with Avon, very part time as I have another job but there a few very successful sales leaders who make a very good wage but you have to work very hard in the beginning and then you need to work hard in training others

    Network marketing does seem to attract very polar opnions as to its viability and whether it's legitimate or not.

    I also do NM, very, very part time alongside a job. The NM has enabled me to reduce my working hours to 20 a week and still retain the equivalent full time income, it picks up the slack. I quite enjoy my four day weekends this gives me as well tbh.

    I am lazy with my NM though and could make enough to give up my job altogether if I pulled my finger out!

    Have to say as well that if anyone is pitching you an opportunity in NM that will make you wealthy in a very short period of time, run very fast in the opposite direction! It needs time to build, it's definitely not a get rich quick scheme, more a make money over a period of time scheme and anybody who tells you differently is being *ahem* economical with the truth.

    And there is absolutely no need to alienate your friends and family in the process!
