This is why there is absolutely NO reason to join an MLM
from Wikipedia

On November 1, 2004, VarTec Communications (the parent corporation of Excel) unexpectedly filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Excel sought to be released from its contracts with its independent representatives. This allowed it to continue to receive revenue from its large base of installed customers without paying eternal commissions to the franchisees

YOu run this risk EVEN if you make it to the top 1% of any MLM.

Yes, of course there are risks in any business.
But what happened with Excel is actually quite rare.

If those of us who have earned 6 and 7 figures in lasting MLM businesses followed that advice, I guess we would never know what we missed.
