Is Herbalife a Pyramid Scam? – Or is it a Legit MLM Opportunity? — 12 Comments

  1. Herbalife have been in the market a long time. Personally I have never used their products. I know people who make money selling their products and are happy with it. I would rather start my own business online. Not in the MLM business. MLM was popular in the eighties with homeparties. I do not like the income system where you have to buy Autoships to have the right to earn. 

    • Quite right Hilde, MLM is a thing of the past which I suspect will finally disappear as it is so time and money consuming for the distributor who, in fact becomes its own best customer as he / she struggles to keep up with the monthly quota imposed to remain onboard. I have since a very long time gone into Affiliate Marketing where everyone wins: the consumer, the product or service provider, and the distributor or affiliate, and not only the few at the top.

      I wish you the very best Hilde. Stay safe and healthy,


  2. Well your site certainly grabs attention.  Herbalife never appealed to me.  Did Amway when I was twenty, 50 Bucks for your first truckload of soap.  The content is very good.  I believe I know more about Herbalife than I ever did before.  

    I was later a Pearl in TheTaxPeople(defunct, founder in federal prison for income tax fraud)  and a friend was making 43,000 per month within a year.  I was on track to get there and more, then the goofball who started it got himself in trouble with Kansas Attorney General, Carla Stovall leading to trouble with the IRS.  Done with any sort of MLM.  

    I’ll trust the good character of Kyle and Carson of Wealthy Affiliate.  We have a great opportunity here to stand independent of anyone.  If something happened to Wealthy Affiliate I’d walk away able to take care of myself with the knowledge gained here.  

    I think your will do well with this type of comparison.  Your site packs punch, is well organized, and I registered to find out about your free Internet Marketing course offered on the post.  Thank you.  Chris.

    • I know the feeling Chris, I’ve done Amway too, in 3 different countries, and ended up with a garage full of extremely expensive empty spray bottles, cartons of disgusting noodles and enough washing powder to supply the  laundry room of a 64 stories condo in Palm Beach, Florida for a year, and never made a cent. 

      So yes, MLM is definitely not for me. Although I know of a few people who have really done well in it, but guess what? They got in early and are now profiting on the backs of all those (millions) who are coming in under them. 

      There is no secret, Affiliate Marketing is where everyone wins, no matter how soon or late they come in.

      Thanks for sharing your background and experience Chris. Yes, I have seen that you have registered for my free Internet Marketing classes and I am sure that your will enjoy them.

      Best wishes for your online projects!


  3. Hallo there! This is an awesome review you’ve got here. Though is my first time hearing about herbalife and with what I read so far about it Is really impressive, at first I thought it was a scam like others making money online so I was little discouraging at first but with your explanation with what I read my mind is fully ready to start up .

    Thank a lot for sharing this with me

    • Thanks for taking the time to read my review on Herbalife my friend. Although Herbalife was one of the best MLMs I have been in, to me it is still an MLM for which reason I am keeping well away from since I have discovered Affiliate Marketing thanks to Wealthy Affiliate.

      I wish you the very best with your businesses.

      Take care!


  4. Hey nice review you have about Herbalife. A lot of thought has been running through my mind either or not to invest in Herbalife, going through this article, I now have a clearer picture of how it operates including it’s cons. Honestly I don’t think Herbalife is worth investing on, considering it’s product not being registered FDA and the different lawsuits against them, with all these issues, it will be very difficult for one to recruit others before they can earn.

    • Thanks for sharing your views on the matter of whether Herbalife is a pyramid scam or not Edah. I’m glad that my review helped you make your decision on this company or any MLM business model. Yes, there is no better form of business model than Affiliate Marketing.

      I wish you the very best for whatever online or offline projects you might be looking into.

      Take care,


  5. Hello there, Herbalife MLM It is neither scam nor a pyramid scheme. It offers different varieties of products like supplements, protein powders, tea, products for weight management, protein bars, personal health care products, and more. however, to earn on this platform, you will have to sell Herbalife products and also recruit fresh distributors. Thanks

    • That’s right, as you have read in my program / product review, Herbalife is far from being a pyramid scheme or a scam platform. As I am saying, it is probably one of the best MLM business models that I have been associated with. However, it is still an MLM business, which for me has zero appeal, and if you look around you will find out that all these MLM companies are slowing offering some sort of affiliation and I have the feeling that in time they will have to follow the affiliate business model, or go burst!

      I wish you the very best. Take care, stay safe and healthy.


  6. Hello there thanks for this review on this platform. It was really helpful I must say. This is actually my first time hearing of this platform and judging from your review it is really worth the try. I really cant say if this platform is a scam or not but then I think you have just covered my doubt on the platform

    • Thanks for your comment Philebur. Yes, if you are attracted to the MLM business model, I can recommend that Herbalife is one honest platform where you can get your feet wet in, but be prepared to invest a lot of your time, and much more money than what you are told by their website and distributors than you might wish to spend before you make a red cent.

      If you do make the attempt to join Herbalife, you will find plenty of distributors who will be happy to welcome you in their downline. And please come back here and share your experience and results, okay?

      Best wishes,
