What is Your Impression on the MLM Industry?
Looking for an impression on direct selling? A quick search online on direct selling and or mlm could easily provide you with an overwhelming negative impression. Lots of fiction about the industry or are they?
I will come back to that fiction and data in a moment. Come along and listen in on an interview in progress between successful GWT’s independent luxury consultant Lior Skaler, and Ted Nuyten of Business For Home.org.
Lior, is now living his dream life style but more important… he is helping a lot of people live their dream lifestyle also.
Contrary to what the “nay sayers” of mlm would like you to believe that, “only the people at the top makes money“, Lior, did not join at the top. On top of that he had no sales experience nor mlm experience when he joined GWT.

What was your first impression about the MLM industry?
After seeing the GWT online video Tour, there was one slide that I still remember which said “if you have this many people in your team, you will make this much money every week in passive residual income”.
I remember sitting there thinking to myself, this is too good to be true! All I have to do is show people this video and once people get started, every time they buy or sell products I will make money automatically week after week without having to put in any effort? Could this be real?
They then introduced me to many people who started part-time while working their full-time JOB and got to the point where they didn’t have to work anymore and were living their dreams.
I was impressed and these people had the lifestyles that I wanted. I was also fortunate to meet the CEO/Founder of the company Mr.Ramin Mesgarlou who I now consider a good friend and mentor and who has been in the Profession for almost 25 years, 14 years in the field as a Distributor of which 12 years were full-time.
He built teams of 100,000 people, mentored over 15 Millionaires and made Millions of dollars himself.
It was the first time I had met this man but after listening to how he wanted to help many people to be financially free and that his reason for creating Global Wealth Trade was to put his son on the cover of Forbes Magazine at the age of 25 as the world’s youngest Billionaire, I knew that he had a long-term vision for the company and that his heart was in the right place.
I also learned that he created the Profession’s first generic training system called the Forensic Networker which I could use to build my business.
I was hesitant because I wasn’t sure if it was going to work for me but they told me that they would support me and they seemed very genuine and I trusted them so I got started and started to see results quickly. That was Lior’s first impression with mlm. It coincides with what the Direct Selling News found.
And here are some facts from a study commissioned by Direct Selling News.
To sort direct selling fact from fiction, Direct Selling News commissioned Harris Poll to conduct a comprehensive online study among 3,549 U.S. adults 18+ between Aug. 19 and Sept. 2, 2014 to more deeply understand the direct selling industry.
This “new New data not only dispels accusations made in the court of public and online opinion and advances the industry’s ability to apply a fact-driven, strategic, proactive offense to better educate the public and quiet industry opponents.”
What we found flips five common direct selling misconceptions 180 degrees.
When it comes to money, 93 percent of current direct sellers reported earning income in the last 12 months.
While personal product discounts are extremely appealing to current direct sellers, 50 percent also served the needs of six or more customers in the last month.
Most current customers (82 percent) thought their last purchase was a good value.
Seven in 10 current customers (69 percent) are likely to speak positively about their direct selling experience.
Despite leaving their businesses, 76 percent of past direct sellers rated their experience fair or better and 67 percent purchased from the industry in the past year.
That poll shows a brighter picture than the grim one, online posters seem to want you to believe. The poll report is extensive and written in simple language. I encourage you to get the full story here groundbreaking study.
I trust this will give you the desire to look deeper into this… opportunity provide by the direct selling mlm industry and who knows, I may get to write about your direct selling mlm first impression. Catch another part of Lior’s interview at Why Join GWT or.
