We want to achieve greatness at the service to many – ACN seems to seek greatness at the expense of many.
If you’re about to spend 0 on ACN, at least think about your other alternatives and keep the statistics in mind.
We admit, the begging power of this many independent representatives is huge – and hugely profitable.
Most people are told from the start that less than one in 100 are successful in the business.
Additionally, a recent study (see references) has shown that approximately 0.5% (less than 1 in 200) even make their initial $500 investment back.
It would appear the vast majority of independent reps have traded a portion of their dignity just to make their upline some money.
There are 2 parts to this: Firstly, the majority of reps don’t make money, and secondly, if you work hard enough at ACN you will indeed make money.
ACN might make you rich if you work hard enough – but based on the data, it’s going to require that you make a lot of other people poor.
Jim Rohn probably said it best: Service to Many Leads to Greatness.
The problem: certain representatives are so good at convincing you, that everyone believes they will be the 1 out of 200 who actually makes money! Here are a few things that should suggest why ACN is not worth your time or your reputation: Even panhandlers can make a little money by begging on the streets to a bunch of random people who they have never met.
If you were to elaborate on this concept and take a group of beggers who were more socially acceptable than bums, then have them beg to people they actually knew – not just for money, but for “a Favor” – you’re sure to see better results than the bums on the street.
Screw the haters, this is a legitimate business 🙂 …
but what about the 58 people who signed up and lost money?
Even bums have documented success stories in which they have earned over 0,000 per year, yet none of us are running out to join that profession.
