A WEIRD Business

MLM is a weird business; it's actually the REVERSE of a regular retail business-

In Retail, you mark up whatever product as it travels through the distribution channel; ie. the Maker charges the wholesaler, who charges the retailer, who charges the customer.

But in MLM, everyone pays the same price, and then the maker pays OUT from the volume of profit.

It's backwards.

And yet, as far as OWNING an MLM business goes, it's kinda the same. Even though we are actually selling the SYSTEM of business, you could think of it as looking for customers for the product OR the system, and whoever spreads the product the best, gets paid the best.

So, having an MLM business works for the guy who has a SUIT, and BUSINESS CARDS, and it also works for the guy who is in a T-shirt and writes down stuff on napkins-

ESPECIALLY in this internet world.

At least, that's what I think right now.
