My friend sold Arbonne for a while (like the Mary Kay pyramid). OMG, she got really pushy and was emailing me for all my friend's email address and phone numbers! I got a group of my friends to have a party to help her out since we were close friends, and then she just ended up harassing me for my mother in law's phone number too! She had never even met my MIL and I finally had to tell her to knock it off because I didn't want my family members harassed about Arbonne!
She got caught up in the whole scheme, talking about how she was going to get a convertible Mercedes by selling X amount of products. Saying how she would retire in 5 years, how she was planning to make $10,000 a month in income!
She ended up buying $5,000 worth of product and arranging baskets to sell. She didn't sell $1 worth and had to ship it all back to the company. She was credited for the product, but paid $500 for shipping. Her husband was pissed about how much money they were losing.
She quit after that. In 6 months of trying to sell Arbonne she never made a profit.
