National is a coast-to-coast business that markets 30 different products and services in 12 different industries through a benefits package.

Dick Loehr is Chairman and owner of the National Companies.  In 1996 Dick began developing a company to provide benefits and services.  In 1997, he provided his benefits package to a small direct selling company that began business in 1992.  Over the next 2 years, Dick and his leadership team continued to enhance the benefits and services provided in the package.

In 1999, Dick purchased the marketing plan and associate group from that direct selling company. Dick then focused on restructuring the company, relocating the corporate office and developing field committees.  In 2001, Dick redesigned the company name, logo and brand.  The new name, National Companies Inc. truly fit the ever growing benefits package.  The field was then referred to as Team National because of Dick’s belief in working together as a Team.” –National Companies Corporate site

Can you specifically tell me the difference between a “pyramid” design and the MLM? What makes a pyramid illegal?

I’d like a full list of all the stores, not just the companies (I can find that on the website) that Team National is affiliated with. So I can make an informed decision. Thank you, Thomas.

My mother in law is going through a divorce and is convinced that she can make a living and suppliment her soon to be ex-husband’s income with what she’ll make with team national. However, I am terribly worried for her. She is very naive, trusting, and her expectations of this company are way too high for me to comfortable. To me, anything that is a pyramid scheme is just that, a scheme. If anyone could help me in my research I would greatly appreciate it! I dont care if you are a “gung-ho” team national distributer that wants to argue with me. Please do!! Let me know why you feel that it is a great opportunity. Tell me how much time you had to put into it. Tell me how successful you have becomw.

Team National is not a pyramid. Pyramid’s are illegal. Team National is celebrating their 15th year. They started with a select membership program which has grown to over 20 different industries. Anyone in this business is able to make more than anyone else. I can make more money than the person who hosted me, and I can make more money than the person who hosted the person who hosted me, etc. You do not make money on other people’s personal purchases. You do not have a sales minumim you have to make. You have no product you have to inventory. You work on your own time. And, with any other business…the more you time you put in the more you get out of it. Success does not happen on its own. I am very pleased to be a part of the Team National team!

I’m happy to see you are concerned about your mother in law. We need a lot more folks like you who care deeply about others. I’ve been in TN for a little over 7 months now (joined not long after you made this post). I was always agains the “pyramid schemes”, but I was just ignorant. Think about corporate America… let’s take Ford Motor Co…
Henry Ford
High Level Managers==
Mid Level Managers======
Sales Field ================

You get the picture… Corporate America is more a “pyramid” if the term is used as loosely as you are (and I did) using it. The truth is this is a sales business, and the product is BRILLIANT. That’s primarily because it isn’t a product. You simply save money on things you were already going to buy, from places you are already buying them. Show me one person who doesn’t like to save money.

You are paid on the volume of sales that your personal contacts lead to. This is why this is really the ANTI-Pyramid. Like lulu said, TN IMDs (distributors) can make way more than those above them in the “pyramid”.

I am a member of the Team National Business Exchange. Team National is great, have been a member for 5 years, Get more business from Team National Members than I do from my Yellow pages add. Have been cutting down the add in the YP for the last 2 years, because of this.

Over those 5 years I have saved, and earned over 12,000 dollars, not a bad return on my envestment.
Oh Yes, I only buy what I need. Food, parts, New Digital Cameras when my film processing company stoped developing pro films. I also bought a car and saved 6,000 on it.

The only time TN dose not work is when the person dose not work TN.

I assume you are factoring in your six thousand dollar car savings. Not knowing the car type, when purchased, this isn’t much better than you could get on the regular market. Also don’t forget to factor in your time, and what savings you would have got outside the tn marketplace, your “investment” performed alot worse than you think it did.

As long as your giving your jaded “opinion” of all of your MLM & DSL competitors; why don’t you list “whole truth” about YOUR adjenda behind this site??? To the naieve you come across as unbiased & neutral. That implies a level of “TRUTH” that is clearly missing from the implications of this site. I got my degree in Marketing and have spent 30 years practicing in that industry–and I know a rat when I smell one!

Obviously, you don’t know me, Craig.

Just to be clear; I’ve dug into Team National / National Companies and am VERY impressed. I was referring to some tendencies on this site to “damn with faint praise” a company which, in my opinion, is as good as (and I believe better than) most companies out there–MLM or otherwise. (Including ALL types from “traditional brick & morter” companies (which I myself have run in the past); to MLM’s, to Direct Sales, and from C -corp to S- corp to LLC’s etc.) I wish some of the retail stores we deal with on a daily basis (outside of National) were as ethical & “user-friendly” as I have found the Team National group to be. Just can’t say enough good about them.
