Eto na yata ang pinakamahirap na video na ginawa ko. Alam ko this is a very difficult topic dahil there are a lot of opinions, most people hate it at some people love it with a passion. I just want to make a disclaimer that this is not an attack on people who are in an MLM, actually karamihan sa mga facebook friends ko na kasali sa MLM, in my opinion, will be really successful running their own business.
Ang MLM or Multi Level Marketing or sa Pilipinas kadalasan ang tawag dito ay NETWORKING according to the FTC ay isang

“BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY THAT INVOLVES SELLING PRODUCTS SA MGA KAPAMILYA AT KAIBIGAN MO AT ANG PAGRECRUIT NG MGA TAO TO DO THE SAME”

Sa MLM there is 2 ways to earn:
1. Magbenta ka ng produkto sa customers na hindi kasali sa MLM
2. Magrecruit ka ng tao para magind downline at kikita ka ng komisyon at bonuses kapag bumili sila ng produkto

According to the FTC kung legitimate and isang MLM, kikita ka ng pera kahit na hindi ka magrecruit ng tao. So ano naman ang isang Pyramid Scheme?

Binigyan tayo ng 4 na Warning Signs ng FTC:
1. Promoters make extravagant promises about your earning potential. Stop. Such promises are false.
Kapag pinangakuan ka na ikaw ay kikita ng milyon milyon in a short amount of time.
2. Promoters emphasize recruiting new distributors for your sales network as the real way to make money. Walk away. In a legitimate MLM program, you should be able to make money just by selling the product.
3. Promoters play on your emotions or use high-pressure sales tactics, maybe saying you’ll lose the opportunity if you don’t act now and discouraging you from taking time to study the company. Leave by the nearest exit. Any company that tries to pressure you to join is one to avoid.
4. Distributors buy more products than they want to use or can resell, just to stay active in the company or to qualify for bonuses or other rewards. If you see this happening, keep your money.

I am not saying na ang mga company in my examples are Pyramid Schemes, only the ftc, dti or sec ang makapagsasabi niyan. All Im saying are these are red flags.

Ngayon, dahil sa record unemployment, nakikita ko na madami na naman ang sumasali. So I decided to make this video. Ginawa ko tong channel na eto para ishare ang tamang pagiinvest. In investing kailangan natin matuto ng offense, kung saan mapapalago ang pera, at defense kung paano hindi mawawala ang perang kinita mo. Ang investing style ko ay simple lang, an MLM is one of the most complicated and time-consuming activity I have ever seen. So personally, social distancing tayo diyan. Sa dami ng scams na kumakalat ngayon, hindi kakayanin ng gobyerno natin, both US at sa Pilipinas. Kadalasan pa, naloko ka na before pa sila magimbestiga, so ang pwede nalang natin gawin is spread awareness, tell our story.

Intro pa lang to madami pa akong gustong sabihin. I also believe na kailangan ianalyze natin ang mga Investment opportunities one by one, so kung meron kayong gustong iparesearch, icomment ninyo lang sa baba. Alam ko maraming opinion ang ibat ibang tao about sa MLM, ang request ko lang sana maging respectful tayo sa isat isa. Whether you are anti mlm or pro mlm, do not attack the person. You can attack the opinion or the company, but not the person. If you are in an MLM at di mo gusto mga sinasabi ko its okay, you are always welcome to subscribe once narealize mo na kabutihan mo lang ang gusto ko.

Sa mga agree naman sakin please like this video, subscribe at hit the bell. Kung meron kayong mga kapamilya o kaibigan na balak sumali sa isang MLM, please share this video para makapagisip muna sila. Thank you and don’t forget the only people mad at you for speaking the TRUTH are those living a LIE. Keep speaking it.

Aside from Frontrow, I was invited to attend another seminar before. I felt like I had no choice but to attend kasi BF ko yung nakikiusap na pumunta ako. That time kasi, hooked na hooked sya sa networking, sa idea na magkakakotse sya agad at magkakabahay.

The name of the company if I am not mistaken was DXN. Long story short, ang pinipilit nung speaker that time was "kung may pangarap ka, dapat magstart ka na magnetworking, magstart ka na mag DXN, magstart ka na sa business na to para maging milyonaryo ka" habang sumisigaw ng "POWER" yung mga audience. (Mostly sa kanila ay members, mga 4 or 5 siguro kaming mga invite)

Since isa ako sa mga bagong muka sa seminar nila, tinanong ako nung speaker "Ikaw ate, kelan ka magssign up?"

I answered with respect naman and I said "Sorry po kaso I think hindi ako in sa mga ganitong 'business' "

Then parang nagalit yung speaker and sinabi nya ng pabiro "AY WALA PALANG PANGARAP SI ATE" tapos biglang nagtawanan ung mga nandon.

Ending after a couple of months, lumipat ung speaker na yun sa ibang networking company (Organo Gold ata ung name) kasi raw "mas okay daw dun"

Just sharing 🙂

LEGAL ANG MLM PERO THE PEOPLE THERE WOULD SAY NA YAYAMAN KA WHEN INFACT ONLY 1% ANG KUMIKITA. WAG MO NANG SAYANGIN ORAS MOS SA MLM. BUTI PA MAG TAYU KA NANG SARILI MONG NEGOSYO. IKAW MISMO BOSS. HAWAK MO SARILI MONG MEGOSYO. YUNG IBA PINO POST MGA NABILI DAW NILA DAHIL SA KANILANG GINAGAWA PERO SARILI PERA NILA BINILI KASI DI PA SILA KUMIKITA.

Precious Jaimie Asis says:

Thank you for this Mam. Very informative. Franchise on a business kahit MLM sya. If you focus recruiting alone bad sya. I actively sell products kumikita naman good for additional income ko. More power po Mam. Can't wait for new videos nyo po

Renato Abrigo says:

Yung iba namimilit pa na mag join ka sa kanila.

Melody says:

Buti nalang bata palang ako tinuruan na kami na di madaling kumita ng pera. Paghirapan mo. If its to good to be true scam yan. Kapag may lumapit sakin sa mga gaya ng mlm/networking automatic no ang sagot ko. Ewan ko ba kapag narinig ng mga tao na ‘yayaman ka dito’ naglalaho bigla baet sa sarili, common sense.

Ryan Cliff Zerna says:

How come a paluwagan is a pyramid scheme?

ang pag kakaalam ko sa paluwagan pra ka lang nag ipon. di naman kikita yun pera mo dun eh.

Palmetto Studios says:

I hope madam you will also tackle MLMs who are legitimate and legally doing their business in the PH and not only focus your vlog on illegal and pyramiding MLM business in general. Member-companies of the Direct Selling Association of the PH are not pyramid scheme companies as they work hand in hand with Department of Trade and Industry to protect the public against ponzi schemes and scammers. I take off my hat to you for warning everyone about these unscrupulous opportunistic individuals or companies. Mabuhay ka!

Jonas Lalantacon says:

Salamat.
Salamat talaga.
Dati din akong mlm member.
But in Gods mercy.
Nakalabas na ako.
And have a healthy life with my family. Not by just getting rich na magiging happy ka. Its our relationship to our loveones.

Sophia Levantino says:

My father is so into IAMWorldwide that he even forced me and my brother to join against our will to get an incentive. These types of Businesses should be stopped. They aren't helping people they are taking advantage of them.
