All the OP wanted was to know if anyone here has experience so that we can share. That is a fair question. I have some experience I would like to share.

I have friends with Amway, Pampered Chef, and 2 friends with the Travel MLM.

Any time you have friends of family involved in MLM, just change their name in your contact list to:

DO NOT ANSWER!

Not only do you drink the koolaid, you are making your own batch. ALL MLMs are destined to FAIL by their very nature

There are some successful MLM companies:
Pampered Chef, Tupperware, Herbalife International, Kirby, and Melaleuca. I think Avon is MLM.

That primamerica shit is big around here.

Have a friend who got into Mary Kay though, she had a 4 year degree - couldn't find a job and started doing Mary Kay to pickup some extra cash. She's moved up a lot, has been giving a new Mary Kay vehicle, and making a good living with it. Those stories are very rare though.

Lets not forget Primerica. They all try to appeal to the same thing, GREED, get rich quick. Everyone can't get rich, the fish at the bottom make the sharks at the top rich, that's it.

i was actually involved in this same company the OP has mentioned. A friend of fine convinced me to meet up with him for a "business opportunity" which was a bunch of people who watched a 20-30 minute video of all the successors and such... blah blah blah long story short, the thought of making a ton of cash was cool, however i did sign up just for the vacation getaways as i have family in a few different states, plus i like to travel. in the end i never did use the advantages due to the struggling economy at the time (08/09 ish). to be honest, the biggest advantages to make money in that company IMO was to be a business owner, because there was a lot of them during these so called "business opportunities" and in many cases these business owners have contacts with a lot of different people, such as customers/friends/acquaintance etc...again imo. if i were to do it again, i would save my money... oh and by the way, haven't talked to that friend since hmm...
