Hello everybody, I'm back from a seminar of a classified ad that claimed "work from home", I've know these for scam but I wanted to try this one out. So, I call up all the ads under the section work from home and find out that all the ads are from different people of the same company, they were the recruiters. Anyways I decided to go and attend the seminar, the person whom i had a talk with told me that this will explain me what the whole thing is about and that was the reason I went there. The entry was charged at INR 30/0.6$ and it was an hour long thing, here's what happened inside: I was surprised at the crowd that was there, maybe they all saw the classified and were here for the same reason, to get some extra cash. They start off with a video about the company herbalife, showing the various celebrities, and how global it is, its some health company based in the US. Then a host comes up and introduces us to the other people who joined in, they all went like "I was this fat before and now after using these fantastic products, I'm 9 kg lighter" and there was an applause which I found out were by the ones who were a part of the company, there were also random "wow" by the people representing . Maybe they wanted us to clap too, but most of the people didn't and that was getting boring, I wanted to know what WORK is it that I have to do ? but then they went on telling about how much they earned and showed their cheque on the screen and that they had traveled abroad and stuff. They stretched this for about 40 minutes and then he said now is the most important part, where a very well known person will tell you about this program. I felt at last, something about the work! BUT NO! even he went on telling us about his story and how he got in and stuff, It was over and they started telling " i was very confused before I joined in here but after attending the business seminar I increased my earning from 1000 to 18000, BUT HOW!? was my question. This is was a complete waste of time according to me, I also found a class mate of my older college there, he was clueless too. And the catch, they wanted us to pay a "token" amount of the total 3000 INR/60$ to register, and that was when they would even tell us what we have to do. I called up the girl who referred me and asked her, and that was when I got to know, its about referring and selling, they claimed that we have no work, simply no marketing but isn't referring marketing ? Do you have any idea about the company "herbalife", let me know. Have a great day

Hi, My grand mother used to work for herbalife, so i'll try and explain how it all works. Firstly you need to find a good mentor, thats the person who's gonna help you out and you can't just sign up to Herbalife you have to sign up to a mentor you join a team if you like. ( send me a message if you would like the name of a good mentor who will explain the WHOLE thing to you). Basically you buy and sell products, and gain like points and then get the products cheaper, you also create your own team. But the mentor that i can tell you about would be much more help than me. Lol Anyway the products are absolutely great! The only people you hear complaining about them are the people who failed to make it in herbalife. So if you're really interested in Herbalife send me a message =) Have a nice day =)

I think the work from home in their perception is means you don't need to go to an office for doing you work. You can do it from anywhere, such as from your own home or other place. Herbal products are widely used for such working scheme. I think it's just like an MLM scheme. You need to find many referrals so you can earn more money from each of your referrals. Well, such working scheme is not really a new kind but since the recession attacking our financial world, many people getting fired and it seems won't stop until right now, so that's why such 'work from home' working system is popular nowadays. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

Thanks for letting me know, it seems that this co has been on for about 10 years, and they claim they've made some record im not very sure about that. There were 2 choices 1 being a recruiter like referring 2 retailer, supplier, like selling.. Which one would be better?

Heyy Fiazio, You dont believe this. I work for Herablife :). But dont worry I am not into marketing. I am working for their finance department, doing all code work for yearly financial reports and IT stuff. I know its one of those Amway products, where in you get all those points while you add or register friends under your name or sell your products to them. The more points you get the more money you get. Frankly speaking, I never used those products till now or I never registered for their products or company. But one this true that there products really work. And this company is doing really great as per the records from 2009. Thou it was a big recession going in US, this was one of those few companies which had amazing profits. Maybe the reason that due to the recession ---People lost jobs--- Sit home and all they do is eat eat and eat---put on loads of weight--- and they want some lazyway to decrease there weight--- Herablife products. This is one of the reason which can be true ;) Anyways this is what i think about herbalife. Let me know if you have any more questions regarding this company.

I don't know about it but I also signed up before but everytime they invite us for an additional seminar there is a certain fee if you want to expand. So if you are a company who really wants to help people to earn money then why ask for payments from your agents. Or maybe its just not my line of business.

Herbalife is health supplement company, whose main product is for reducing the weight. You get a commission when you sell the companys products. Now days they are recuting a lot of agents for their products. Well the product is supposed to be good. I have also tasted and tried this product, and found it to be good. Since I have started to use this product, I am also thinking of joining them as an agent or something like that.
