Last time I said that I would take a look at the compensation plan of Arbonne International and how it drives behavior in the field for network marketing success. I’m going to put that off for a while, because while I was looking through the sign-up documents I saw the one I want to point out to you. I’ll make this short and sweet – regarding being terminated for no reason.

When you sign up, one section of the agreement states, and I am copying it exactly as it appears today May 13, 2006:

I understand that I have the right to terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without reason. I understand that such termination must be in writing. I understand and agree that Arbonne may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without reason, upon written notice to me.

I just cut and pasted the above right from the agreement online.

Now, I read that as agreeing to the fact that the Arbonne International can terminate this agreement to be an independent consultant whenever and for whatever or no reason at all.

I think that’s clear enough.

Would they do it – especially when you start really earning a lot (remember, not too many people can do that)? Hopefully not.  Most companies do not intend to use that clause but have been known to do so when they get into a money pinch.

Have consultants been terminated? I have heard that some have, but have no knowledge of the reasons and cannot verify that.

Even so, you might ask yourself why that statement would be in there if there was no intention ever to use it?

Do all companies have that statement in their agreements or policies and procedures? No. But most of them do.

I don’t know about you, but I prefer a company that does not have that written anywhere. And I found one, so I know it’s possible. I want a company that will allow me to retire and will be around to pay my children and my children’s children – even if they do not wish to keep building!

Please do not leave Arbonne International if you like to use their products. But if you have a dream of having network marketing success and Arbonne will not fulfill that, don’t wait until you have put a lot of money on the table and still are not successful.

Please join Mentoring for Free for skills training calls and learn information on how to choose a network marketing company. These calls are free. They are helping a lot of people. I invite you to be one of them and not be among those who have been and can be terminated for no reason.

Wishing you mlm residual income success through gaining skills,
