    Black Leaders In MLM

    I'd never thought of this before until I read a post on Dream and Hustle. But there doesn't seem to be too many MLM's - or any that I can think of - that are run by black folks or even have black folks in positions of leadership in the company.

    The blog post in question I'm reading is: "Itís Time to Confront the Two-Bit Hustle Known as MLM in the Black Community."

    The fellow running this blog, Ed, seems like a real sharp fellow. As he puts it:

    Multi-Level Marketing or MLM model has evolved into the biggest example of buffoonery in the Black community in regards to how we handle our business and self-empowerment. MLM is nothing more than a broke hustle and Black folks in our community who push MLM talk too damn much and front too damn much at the same damn time. The Black community need to straight diss MLM and migrate to non-commodity products, solid marketing frameworks and establish supply chain channels to compete and thrive in the 21st century global economy.
    He's also got quite a humorous way of writing. As he explains how MLM works...

    The way we are going to speak on how multi-level marketing work is from a position of a boss, not one of these punk ass peasants to the hustle who are the suckers way at the bottom tier who can only speak as a follower. Letís put it this way Ė if a person in the MLM hustle ainít the one pushing the product, then that person is just a top b*tch or a bottom b*tch to the pimp game they can get in where they fit in. At Dream and Hustle, we talk like a boss and walk like a boss and deal with cats like a boss and thatís how we going to approach how MLM works Ė like a boss. If these other cats really did know how MLM works, they would be a boss instead of some top b*tch to the MLM hustle, real talk.
    Uh, yeah!

    Really worth the time to read the entire post and listen to what Ed says.

    Some good points in there!

    If I am not mistaken, OrganoGold was started by a black man and there are a lot of blacks in OrganoGold.

    Ummmm.... I checked.

    When CEO and Founder Bernardo Chua began Organo Gold, he was already a successful businessman...

    I think the dude is Asian.

    But Shane Morand, Organo Goldís Global Master Distributor and Co-Founder, seems to fit the description.

    As Ed, says, MLM seems to be mostly a white man's hustle.

    Interesting.

    Jay Noland (who is black) was listed as a co-founder/co-owner along with Shane Morand and Bernie Chua. Oz at BehindMLM did an article on Organo Gold and Jay Nolad back in Feb 2014.

    Including Holton Buggs who is their executive vice president and one of three members of Organo Golds' "leadership team"

    Re: Black Leaders In MLM

    Excerpt from the PDF below, sounds about right...

    During these meetings and trips you hear testimonials from people who say they were
    near financial ruins but are now rolling in money , have a fancy car and a retirement
    home on the beach. You’ll also see this at the company’s website, where you’ll be
    amazed to learn that you’re the last person to find out about the easy millions that are
    yours for the taking.

    Anytime you visit a website where someone mentions the words “residual” or “distributorship”
    beware! If you see a picture with the CEO surrounded by a trophy wife, airplanes, and a fleet of
    sleek automobiles, hold your wallet. These people certainly aren’t into reinvestment . Your
    hard earned money is subsidizing their playroom

    Pretty sure he'd been scrubbed from company history when he split with Carrie, now ex-wife (and still part owner of Organo Gold), and went on to create a competitor called Serenigy (same genre: spiked coffee)
