Hi, Freinds.

I would like to hear your story of being a Herbalife Distributor or someone you know who made or lost money to that pyramid. I am looking for some emotional reaction for my next page.

96% of people that sign up for Herbalife drop out in a 4 year span.
.12% have some success.
300,000 to 400,000 people per year sign up for Herbalife.
Most who go full time make less $ than a minimum wage job.

Interesting stats, what authority do they come from?

Thanks for the source. Pershing Square Capital Management is owned by Bill Ackman a hedge fund billionaire who bet a billion for Herbalife shares to short. His disclaimer makes for interesting reading as well.

Interesting how such a tiny snippet of Mark Hughes' training was shown, so it's out of context. Had the privilege of meeting him several times & attending many of his trainings, & of course Jim Rohn too.

I was with Herbalife many years ago, before the Internet days! I absolutely loved it, love the MLM industry & the opportunity it gives the average person.

It is no different to any other business model online or offline. There are always those that will push unethical practices (knew some of those too). It's not for everyone, not everyone succeeds, even here! One does have to do the work & take responsibility for the choices one makes including buying more stock than one needs.

I have several friends still in Herbalife (20+ yrs later), those making a fair living + those earning very well, with a good retail base. I have also witnessed many times newbies who went to work & overtook their uplines. So Pyramid? No way.

I have a hard time swallowing when I hear 'MLM + pyramid + scammed'.

Well you were looking for an emotional reaction lol!

Life circumstances took me in another direction. Going back has been tempting though dealing with physical products is no longer for me.

Yes, I've been scammed by a similar program, Melaluca. They both are Multi-level marketing scams in my opinion. Although they cannot really be considered pyramids because they do have products that supposedly offer some benefits. I never do MLM anymore. Got burned too many times. Good luck here in WA as you journey to success.

My boyfriend was interested in Herbalife, but he never followed through with marketing the products. He was given a hefty marketing book and a free website. It seemed legitimate to me. My only complaint was the price of the products. They seemed really pricey to me.

Don't be surprised they do it over and over every year.
