Concern #4:  Don’t all MLMs Have Crazy Claims about their Products?

Many (not all) MLMs sell products that claim to do something “unusual.”  They may claim to help you lose an incredible amount of weight, have more energy, cure certain diseases, or make you look younger etc.  And some are legitimate and have an incredible amount of research to back up their claims.

Regardless of whether the claims were legitimate or not, I did not want to spend my time trying to convince others of the legitimacy.  People tend to be skeptical of such claims and in my opinion, that can make it difficult to find lasting success in such a company because it limits your market.

 Answer to Concern #4

THRIVE Life offers food rotation systems, emergency supplies, and food.  While all of these products are useful to the general population, none require any crazy claims.  Even though the food is unique, there is nothing astounding about it.  It is simply food that has had the water, and nothing else removed.  It won’t heal more than regular veggies, or give you more energy that a typical soup, or help you lose weight, or make you look younger.  It is just food.


Concern #5:  Don’t all MLM products cost a LOT?
