Herbalife is a stubborn mule of a company. The idea that the company is concerned with the welfare of its junior recruits is as absurd as it is cynical. The reason this company makes so much money is because it takes advantage of its most junior recruits with a well-designed confidence game. Most don’t make any money, most last less than a year, most churn out of the business with their wallets empty and their pride wounded. Of course, all of those in the upline make out like bandits. Why? Because they are bandits.
