    Pros

    If you're part of the 5% who make it hard selling people you can make a lot of money but in reality you're probably not part of that slim margin.

    Cons

    Company lies about their products and competitors, unethical practices. No on going training after basic sales, not product, training. High turn over rate due to using people for their 200 names and they will advise you to go deep in debt while purchasing their products and trying to have your friends and family purchase them as well while trying to dazzle you with "success stories".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat FR's like you would want to be treated and not cattle to bleed dry so you can line your pockets.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
