      Pros

      -An overall good culture of highly motivated and encouraging people. -A chance to make unlimited income based on your own hard work -Great experience building a business from the ground up and calling on/working with successful people. -Most will continue to try and help you be successful and come up with new ways to help -Monthly bonuses you can hit for cash and other things.

You have to be back for phone time from 3-5pm, can't come back to the office during the day if needed, etc. If I'm getting my appointments booked why does it matter what time of day I do it? -Lack of leadership training in some offices. I was overlooked while it was clear there...

      -Don't force people into leadership positions that don't want it or that have no experience -Consider training those new leaders while they have a new hire. How else will they learn? Better to not be at the detriment of your new hires. Come alongside them. -Maybe decide who the leader will be before you hire someone and not after. It's important for someone interviewing to know who they will be accountable to and if...

      Pros

      The “chance” to have Unlimited profit..

      Cons

      Cult like. Manipulation from the leadership team. Unprofessional culture. Turn over is rapid and clients aren’t properly taken care of when sales professionals leave. If you do decide to leave you are black listed. You will never get a letter of recommendation. Be careful when leaving, they will not pay you “clothing allowance” or just not pay the commission on the time and efforts for your sales. Don’t waste your...

        The one downside I can think of is that it's a lot of hard work. But to me, it just makes me really proud of myself for building this career and achieving what I've set out to do! This job is exactly what you make of it! Work hard and you will achieve everything you want in life!
