    Herbalife Invades Cambodia

    What do you first think of when hear the country Cambodia mentioned? I picture it as a rather poor country, mostly jungle. Checking, the average income in Cambodia is about $750 per year. The Cambodian diet is based around noodles, soups, grills, stir-fried, curries, salads, desserts, lots of vegetables, tropical fruits, and of course rice which is the staple food for Cambodians. In other words, while a poor country, Cambodians seems to eat a fairly healthy diet.

    But beware! Herbalife thinks othewise and wants to change all that. Instead of lots of vegetables, tropical fruits, soups, grills, and salads, Herbalife feels Cambodians needs nutritional products for a healthy life - like Herbalife shakes for instance.

    At a recent rally in Phnom Penh, Herbalife flew in Alan Lorenz, a 72-year-old Englishman and one of the top “members” of Herbalife. “I only came here for one reason,” Lorenz tells the crowd of more than two hundred. “To make Cambodia the fastest growing country in Asia!” “[Friends and family] only believed me when I made my first million dollars,” he tells the crowd, referring to the lucrative virtues of Herbalife. (I thought Herbalife just said they were only interested in creating a healthy life for Cambodians?)

    But it appears to be a tough slug for those trying to sell the stuff. Han Muy Ngin runs a one-room nutrition club in the capital’s Sen Sok district. After two months of operating the nutrition club – located in a moto garage and festooned with Herbalife posters asking questions like “Have you had your shake today?” – Muy Ngin has not recruited any new Herbalife members. She does sell Herbalife products, but only by the cup – $2.50 for two cups of Herbalife tea. Suppose that's about all the poor folks can afford. Really, who's going to buy the crap? Makes about as much sense to me as NuSkin opening stores in Mongolia.

    But the bigger question is, doesn't Herbalife have any sense of decency or propriety? Selling this "opportunity" to folks in a country where the average income is about $750 per year? Apparently not, this is MLM after all.

    Ah yes...when I hear cambodia I remember the Kumer Rouge, and the destruction left in their wake. The country has yet to recover from it. That just shows how desperate and scummy Herbalife is-they have to go so far as the frikin jungles of Cambodia to make a sale!

    More proof Herbalife isn't about "product" or "sales" it's about recruiting.

    Herbalife Promises Cambodians Health, Wealth

    “I use the products to make myself healthy, and then I can recruit some friends who trust me and they also sell the product and we all make money,” said Herbalife supervisor Heng Sompiseth outside the offices on Wednesday.
    Guzzling Formula 1 shakes doesn't make you healthy. Try some real food.

    Besides, didn't they teach you that "recruit" is a no-no word?


    “Scientific research shows that meal replacement shakes—the scientific name for this protein-fortified healthy shake—if you eat two of them [a day] you lose weight; eat one a day, you can keep it off for a lifetime.”

    Bullshit. Can you reference the study please - one that Herbalife didn't sponsor? As a side note, you don't "eat" meal replacement shakes.


    “I spread the message to my friends,” said Mr. Sompiseth, “telling them that Herbalife makes you lose weight and look more handsome, and when they use the products, I get the points. And if they sell more products, I get those points, too.”
    More bullshit. Herbalife doesn't makes you lose weight - restricting calorie intake does. And what's with this "get the points" bull crap? What happened to altruism?

    “When we build the mountain of the people, our points increase faster. Like a pyramid,” he said. “This is how they teach us in training.”
    A pyramid? Oh, oh, another no-no word.

    Heng, were you sleeping through the training class or did all those $$$ signs on the board short circuit your attention span?

    Herbalife doesn't make people lose weight and Hebralife doesn't make anyone money (unless you are on top the pyramid).

    I was getting darn good results with the Banner Broker Shake/ ad pak combo until the haters @ big pharma shut them down.

    =============================================
    5% of a family's monthly budget on a can of crapo shake powder seems a real tough sell


    A can of Herbalife shake mix, which supervisors purchase at a 50 per cent “discount”, is still meant to be sold at $36 – a high price for a product which is not well known in Cambodia.

    =============================================
    Same as it ever was...


    Statistics prove that 50 to 70 per cent of recruits quit in their first year, with inventory and recruitment kits in hand.


    Finally, there have been charges of exaggerated income claims, preying on the gullible and inexperienced.
