UPDATE: On February 17, 2010, Medifast Inc. filed suit in US District Court, Southern District of California, alleging defamation, violation of California Corporations Code, and unfair business practices. On March 29, 2011, Judge Janis Sammartino dismissed all of Medifast’s claims against me in her ruling on my anti-SLAPP motion.
Yesterday I referenced a new report on Medifast and Take Shape For Life by multi-level marketing expert Robert Fitzpatrick.. Here is more from his report. I want to highlight these things because they’re the facts that many pushers of MLMs will never tell you.
Those recruiting for MLMs are quick to tell you about how much you can make if you sell their product (often glossing over the fact that you’ll have to recruit new people into the scheme in order to have any chance of making a living), but they will never tell you that it’s next to impossible. They forget all the reasons why people in these MLMs are selling so few products and making so little money from selling.
