The issue is that none of the beggers make enough money – all of the cash floats to the top.It would appear the vast majority of independent reps have traded a portion of their dignity just to make their upline some money.There is very limited data on the success rates of ACN Independent Representatives.Most people are told from the start that less than one in 100 are successful in the business.For example – say John tells Bob that all he has to do to be successful is keep on showing the business to more people and eventually he will be rich – the harder he works the more money he will make.Bob takes this recommendation to heart since he has been told the same thing most of his life – more work (hard or smart) equals more money.Jim Rohn probably said it best: Service to Many Leads to Greatness.
Is hard work still a reasonable justification for profits when you have caused 58 people to part with their money by promising them great returns and delivering them nothing?
Additionally, a recent study (see references) has shown that approximately 0.5% (less than 1 in 200) even make their initial 0 investment back.
The problem: certain representatives are so good at convincing you, that everyone believes they will be the 1 out of 200 who actually makes money! Here are a few things that should suggest why ACN is not worth your time or your reputation: Even panhandlers can make a little money by begging on the streets to a bunch of random people who they have never met.
Bob shows the business to 300 people over the course of the year, 60 of them sign up, and 2 of them actually make their initial investment back.
By this time Bob has earned a decent chunk of cash for himself along with some solid residual income.
