While Gates enrolled at Harvard, Allen pursued a degree in computer science at Washington State University, though he later dropped out of school to work at Honeywell. Since they didn't yet have one, Allen worked on a simulator for the Altair while Gates developed the interpreter. Although they developed the interpreter on a simulator and not the actual device, it worked flawlessly when they in March demonstrated the interpreter to MITS in AlbuquerqueNew Mexico. He later invested in low-tech sectors, sports teams, and commercial real estate.
Wednesday, October 10, Market America Exposed: The primary product is opportunity. The strongest, most powerful motivational force today is false hope. Back inI responded to a "business opportunity" ad in a newspaper in Bellingham, WA.
I attended these overly enthusiastic meetings which employed cult-like brainwashing techniques, group pressure, and sensational promises. Here are some of its core misleading false claims vs.
They call their system "the binomial system of linear marketing" or "The UnFranchise System" and use terms such as "vertical downline" to disassociate themselves from the negative stigma of MLM. They claim that their downline structure is vertical, like a skyscraper, rather than horizontal or pyramidal.
First, even if there is a vertical downline of commissions, still, the system says that in order for everyone in your downline to benefit, everyone must recruit at least two people which of course cannot go on forever, so someone is guaranteed to lose outso if you recruit two people and they recruit two others and so forth, of course the downline is going to have a pyramidal structure, regardless of the commission structure.
Second, notice that the presenter put " percent" next to every level of the downline to make it look tantalizing. He said that everyone in your downline, including yourself, receives percent of the BV commission points generated by the person at the bottom level.
But this is a mere mind trick to make it look big. Let's use some common sense here. There is no free lunch and no free money. They cannot pay everyone more than the net profit earned, or else they would lose money.
This is common sense. I was hoping to make more! Even though I can see through it, it's too bad there are many suckers out there who will not. In reality, less than one percent of distributors make anywhere near that amount.
Most of them make little or nothing, or end up losing money see the sourced statistics from Wikipedia below. Here is a bare bones definition of an MLM from Wikipedia: This recruited sales force is referred to as the participant's downline, and can provide multiple levels of compensation.
Changing or altering a downline structure or commission plan, or repackaging itself with new terms and labels does NOT change that.
It's only doing so to avoid the negative public stigma of MLM's and of course to make itself look "special". So when you break it down, it's the same nuts and bolts as a standard MLM in that: All MLM's work that way, regardless of how they dress themselves up.
It's not anymore complicated than that.
So in reality, they are really no different because they all work the same way at the nuts and bolts level - and at that level the system is fundamentally flawed more on that below.
Thus, their claim of not being an MLM is unsubstantiated. Furthermore, Wikipedia cites these common criticisms of MLM's: Criticism has focused on their similarity to illegal pyramid schemes, price fixing of products, high initial start-up costs, emphasis on recruitment of lower-tiered salespeople over actual sales, encouraging if not requiring salespeople to purchase and use the company's products, potential exploitation of personal relationships which are used as new sales and recruiting targets, complex and sometimes exaggerated compensation schemes, and cult-like techniques which some groups use to enhance their members' enthusiasm and devotion.
They tell this to all new recruits in order to not discourage them when they object "But I'm not good at selling".Matt is a global business leader at Amway who has worked in new product development, procurement, supply chain management and continuous improvement.
