Loading... Review - The "Six Figure Mentors" MLM Scam.

I've noticed a lot of "Live the 4-Hour Workweek" and "Digital Lifestyle" ads popping up in my facebook feed lately and decided to click some of them to see what they were.  Multi Level Marketing, all of them.  First it started with guys from the showing you their "Viral Blogging System" and now there is the Six Figure Mentors program selling you "High Ticket Products."

I wasn't going to write anything about it but I realized how many people who want to travel and start a location independent business may get tricked into buying into a MLM scheme like Six Figure Mentors or Empower Network. By the way, for legal reasons I'm going to have to state that everything in this blog is my own personal opinion.

What is MLM?

  1. Multi-level marketing is a marketing strategy in which the sales force is compensated not only for sales they personally generate, but also for the sales of the other salespeople that they recruit.

Is the 4-hour workweek a scam?

This is the tricky part.  Yes, it is possible to live the 4-hour workweek, live a digital lifestyle and work from home, or wherever in the world you choose.  The problem however, is MLM companies are starting to take advantage of the digital nomad scene by selling you the dream.

What really works?

Yes I am living the digital lifestyle, No I did not make it here selling "high ticket product"or "viral blogging systems."  I use and recomend which is a free Blogging System made by Google.  

I also make money selling Books on Amazon, and recommend "Make a Killing on Kindle" as a great $6 book that teaches you how to make your kindle book stand out and sell well.

However I make the majority of my income through eCommerce and Dropshipping which is why I recommend the things I do on my Recommended Resources page as they actually worked for me and have honestly given me the lifestyle I have now.

Wrapping it up:

I think it's perfectly okay to use affiliate links when recommending products that actually work, I just think it's shady to try to sell people on the dream of living the 4-hour workweek by recommending MLM schemes such as anything from the Empower Network or Six Figure Mentors.  

If you are ever unsure if something is a scam, feel free to message me on facebook or leave a comment here to ask, I would love for all of my friends, family and readers to be able to make money online and be able to come travel with me, scuba dive, and have fun.  I just want everyone to know the right path isn't always the one that advertises on facebook and has fancy sales videos.

By the way this is just my personal opinion and nothing on my blog should be taken as legal advice, I may be completely wrong and it may not be a scam, but that's what it looks like to me.

Feel free to make your own judgements.

Warm Regards,

  1. Many people who join the Make Money Online are just focused on how to put money in their own pocket. That's when the MLM people swoop because they want to be the middle man between you and that.

    If you're able to focus on how to help someone else achieve their goal, you can build profitable businesses with clients creeping out the wood work.

    So focus outwards when learning to make money (online or off) and there is money in supporting people to make their projects a reality and there is money in serving people the products they need (Like the dropship businesses mentioned above.)

    1. Hey Ian, thanks for the reply. You make a good point that there is a lot of legitimate money to be made in helping others make money and supporting them through their projects. An example is your podcast editing service, it is a great service based business that teaches people how to make good podcasts that will make them money and it serves people by offering a product that they actually need.

      I also think a lot of people fall for MLM/Pyramid schemes and in turn promote them because it sounds easier, they don't actually need to build a business like an ecommerce store, editing service or dropshipping company which actually takes time to create and maintain as they are real businesses just like a brick and mortar restaurant would be.

  2. Thanks for you mentioned about MLM scam in this post. Though, some people are earning money from this business. I suppose still some good MLM websites existing in online. But, it is rare to find.

  3. MLM's exist in almost every industry now. It's sad to see people falling for the dream of getting something for nothing. You only get the greatness out of life by being authentic, transparent, and creating consistent free value.
