Younique Review — Is it a scam?

Younique is an MLM which specializes in beauty products.

The company was founded by Derek Maxfield and Melaine Huscroft. This is the second company for Mr.Maxfield who founded NetSteps in 2003.

On the other hand, it appears from the website that Melanie Huscroft, the Co-Founder and Chief Visionary Officer, has no experience in the corporate world, a fact which would be troubling if she were not partnered with her brother who has been listed as a top 500 company with NetSteps.

The advantage of the Younique brand is that there is a large variety of beauty products available. Additionally, the company only offers beauty products, compared to some MLMs which offer too much diversity and discredit themselves. Continue reading

Zinzino Review — Is it a scam?

Zinzino is a MLM company which also focuses on individual product sales of oils, skincare, and supplements.

The company’s origins is in expresso coffee machines, specifically the Franco-Belgian Rombouts-Malongo coffee and home expresso machines.

Zinzino is a realitively new company as the Balance products and Bioactive Food partnership did not occur till 2012. And even though this company did have the Franco-Belgian established in 2005, that is still only a decade and some change.

That said, there does seem to be some promise for the company as it is located in 28 of the EU countries, America, Norway, Iceland, and Canada. It’s not the biggest company in the world, but it’s trying to be a conglomerate.  Continue reading

Zija Review — Is it a scam?

Visi Review — Is it a scam?

Visi is a wellness brand dabbling in everything from supplements to skincare.

The name is apparently what Viking leaders were called way back when Vikings were a thing. Not sure how well the Viking culture would approve of a company that sells stuff that makes skin softer taking their name, but they do. In fact, they say:

You will become Vísi [a Viking leader]. Then, as you help others become Vísi themselves, you will maximize your potential and literally change lives. Additionally, Vísi will help you reach your true potential by providing you multiple ways to enhance your life. Continue reading

Unicity Review — Is it a scam?

Unicity is a renowned and older MLM company dealing with health and wellness products.

They’ve been in the business for 30 years and offer a wide range of wellbeing products to provide energy and balance to individuals.

Located in the East Orem, Utah, the company has a presence in more than 50 countries across the globe. With a decent compensation plan and high quality products, Unicity has set kind of a benchmark in the MLM industry.

Another unique element is the company sponsors and organizes diverse professional motivational seminars, trips and events. Every direct selling company has events, but Unicity does this a bit more than an annual conference. Continue reading

Zrii Review – Is it a scam?

Zrii is a MLM that focuses on health, wealth, and wellness through a number of products, mainly beverages and supplements.

Zrii was established in 2008 by William Farley. And while the birth of the Farley Industries is fairly new, William Farley has acted as the CEO for Fruit of the Loom for 15 years.

Farley was let go from Fruit of the Loom in 2000 after some troubling issues (liabilities exceeded its assets by more than $60 million). But the failure in one area does not necessarily mean that Zrii, is such. Still, you may want to do some of your own research.

Here’s a post from the Chicago Tribune (one of many) about all of the troubles of the clothing brand. Continue reading

BetRobot Review — Is it a scam?

BetRobot is a…well, it’s a…sort of MLM that is gaining interest fast that involves gambling.

There is relatively no information about the company who started this business, or is there an official website. The entire “business” runs by an app within another app. Those who are pushing it claim that the company claims (yeah, it’s like that) you can earn 6% daily.

It doesn’t take a genius to logically take those rates and figure out the claim is really over 2000% annual yield.

Don’t know how you wanna take that, but most people would say it sounds like a little word that rhymes with “sam” (e.g. scam). Continue reading

Lyoness Review — Is it a scam?

Lyoness is a cash-back membership-style MLM.

This may sound unique, but there are a couple of other memberships that are set up almost exactly the same way.

Back in 2003, a guy named Hubert Fried started the company and it grew very rapidly across the European scene. You may not have heard about this style of MLM, let alone this particular company. We’ll break down what they do, how you’d get paid, and whether or not it’s worth it. Continue reading

iPro Network Review — Is it a scam?

iPro is an MLM that gives investment opportunities via its “Pro Coin” digital currency.

If that doesn’t sound like your everyday, run-of-the-mill direct sales company; that’s perfectly normal. It’s not. The question isn’t whether or not, they do things a certain way, it’s whether or not you can make a little money doing it.

There aren’t any physical products, which could throw many people off. And to be honest, it’s not for everyone.

That said, if it intrigues you and you love investing—give it a look. Continue reading
