Launch can be rough but if you believe in what you're selling or promoting then just stick with it till corporate gets stronger and ready to get past launch phases. I have to disgree with mainstreetm on 1 thing.
Only network marketing companies who outright PAY for recruiting borderline on pyramid schemes because of you are paying existing reps for recruiting new reps that's similar to a ponzi scheme in that there is essentially NO real revenue being generated (because it is just churning from new rep to old rep)
The strength of a network marketing company depends on how heavily it relies on external consumers. If reps are the biggest revenue generator then run. In my company you can make money without recruiting a SOUL. We earn $1 per person per month who uses our free search website.
