"I agree.  The only true way to protect your rights to sell is to create your own brand.  However, that also means renaming the product, too - not just putting your name on it. I am a huge YG Labs supporter, I went with their product line…"

Karen Hurley replied to Sheila Gordon's discussion MLM companies
