    Pros

    Control over your earnings. If you want to earn more you just work harder. Great flexibility, you can work your business around your life.

    Cons

    You have to create your own leads. If you recruit a bunch of people you need to build up your calendar again.

    Pros

    Beautiful jewelry
    Fantastic advisor discount, unlike some other direct marketing companies I've been involved with
    Great hostess and customer promotions

    Cons

    Biggest is that they are closing their doors, after 28 yrs. I only recently became an advisor, only for the doors to close several short months later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In reading other reviews, it sounds like (heresay, of course, but one in particular seemed to have knowledge of their claim) the expense reports being submitted by upper management are fairly extreme, and causing the crumble of the company. This was also only a few days (all of that being DURING the Thanksgiving weekend for most of us) before the company announced they would cease operations at the end of the fiscal month of December!
