Sorry to bump this, but I just attended an interview for 'I-Commerce', along with my friend, with a fellow named 'Toby'. The usual drill really, no details so I thought I'd Google it after the meeting and here I am.
According to him he's earning $100k, yet after the meeting he drives off in what looks to be a $5k Mazda. He claims he is divorced, yet continues to wear his wedding ring - suddenly all credibility is lost ;D
In any case, I have a friend whose mother has been with Amway for many years, and she earns a very tidy (100k+) income. It works out very well for her, however, she works very hard. The bottom line is when it comes to pyrimid schemes, MLM if you will, you can earn good money if you work hard, just like any other business. It's just a shame that your success relies on your indoctrination of others who are invariably below you in the grand scheme of things - at least with a consumer/supplier relationship the consumer isn't filled with false hope.
