I realize that multi-level marketing programs can be a great education, for people who want to go into sales. However, many people find only expensive, frustrating lessons in a field in which they don't do well. The founders of Amway criticize what it has become: an organization that gets more money from its members' training fees than from sales to outside customers.
Unlike most sales positions, you generally have to pay for all your training, and pay up front for all your stock. You also mostly have to make cold calls, and generally are pressured to start with family and friends. I know I couldn't do that at all well, and I'd lose friends.
