A couple weeks ago, I published a post about how MLMs prey on moms, particularly stay at home moms who have limited income earning options. You can read it here.
While I stand by that article and agree that most “consultants” do not earn their keep selling things like Jamberry Nails, I decided to write a feature about T. (name is withheld not because T. requested it, but because I have no interest in harming T.’s reputation or ability to provide for her family) , a Senior Lead Consultant with Jamberry.
Originally, her side of things sounded like a tremendous success story. I was also being bombarded by comments from other Jamberry consultants, telling me how “wrong” I was about Jamberry, so I thought a deeper look was in order. So, dive into the depths I did. And this Jamberry story is not what I thought it would be.
Statistically, “On average, 99.95% of network marketers lose money. However, only 97.14% of Las Vegas gamblers lose money by placing everything on a single number at roulette.” (Source) As a disclaimer, I am not, nor is BOTTLESOUP, benefiting from the sale of Jamberry nails. I am not receiving any payment or commission from this post – this is strictly for informative purposes, so my audience can get a better look at the Jamberry world and make their own decisions. I urge you to do your own research before becoming involved in any network marketing/MLM/at home consulting, and consider T.’s story as one of the 0.05%.
