Personally, I think it's a waste of time and money. Why the hell do I have to pay them $500? A job should be paying YOU.

Anyone have any experience in ACN/AMWAY businesses? Is it legit or scam?

These types of business ventures were successful for a few people that got started before the internet age. But honestly, the internet changed everything. Who would buy this overpriced crap when the world's retail items are at your fingertips for cheaper?

This type of business ruins friendships because instead of a friend, you become a peddler trying to get them all involved because involving a network of people is the only way to succeed.

They're pyramid schemes and offer low-quality products. Stay away. No legitimate job would ask you to dump that kind of money into it at the outset, just to "get on board". Stay away. As the previous poster stated, do you really want to pimp low-quality crap to your neighbors and friends and risk your friendships?

I wrote an essay debunking MLM's and explaining why they are doomed to fail. You can see it here:
