American Express’ Open Illustration Shows MLM is for Charlatans

There's a great illustration at American Express' Open Forum for Small Businesses. I'll let you click over to see it. As you can see someone who is all talk and no work is very much a charlatan (in the author's view).

I know that some MLMers believe that "building a team" is actual work, but it's all talk. In reality the sales can be done by an inanimate shelf at Wal-Mart or via a website like Amazon. In many cases it can do it better because it doesn't illegally market the product through illegal health claims.

This is yet another reminder of why MLM is a terrible business.
