    Pros

    Very few - perhaps your mother in law will stop speaking to you?

    Cons

    Let's not mess around here - this is a pyramid scheme, pure and simple. If management want to 'rebrand' a pyramid scheme as 'a marketing business' then good luck to them ... But there is only one winner here - and it aint me and you.

    The first words an area manager said at a meeting were 'if you're not here to make me a 'shed load' of money... Then 'fudge off' now'..... Helloooooooooo - alarm bells anyone?

    The products thenselves are 'alright...' Nothing more. They position themselves as a high end product though (price) - when the product itself is very much mid-low range... People arent thick - they know this is avon comparable stuff in nice packaging. You are essentially making money by lying to your friends and family...!

    You are encouraged to sell to friends and family as these people are deemed to be the most supportive to a new venture - pester them into buying, eventually they'll order something.. Trust me - your friends and family dont want to buy this stuff - stop asking them!!

    Invite peiple round to your house for a 'forever' party... Spend the whole night plastering aloe verra stuff on people you love... The problem is, as soon as people realise its a big sales pitch, and not a party, they want to leave - avoiding your company altogether.

    My friends now joke 'yeah, of course i fancy a night out with you - but please dont make this into a sales evening...'

    Your friends will make excuses why they wont come to your big product launch - ranging from sick kids to poorly partners to 'stop selling me this 'stuff..' i dont want it - how many times do i have to tell you??! - i enjoy your company - not your sales pitch!'

    Your facebook page should be awash with positivity and those annoying 'seize the day' type images.... People will then associate you with positivity and that'll help to sell an overpriced product (apparently....!). It doesn't - it just makes you look like a tool - friends dont come on fb to buy aloe vera - stop flogging this rubbish to people you love!

    You'll be encouraged to give forever products as gifts (birthday and xmas...) in the hope that once your besties try the stuff they'll want more... They wont. If anything they'll resent you more for not getting them a debenhams voucher, like they asked for.

    Do yourself a favour and stay well away from forever living... Its a borderline scam. Your friends will start to hate you and so will your family. Before you know it you'll be living under a rock - with a load of aloe vera slapped on your face ... Gently sobbing - wondering where it all went wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Ridiculous promises - expensive products... If this were in poundland many people would walk past...
