I've been bombarded by emails about GVO , many by "Big Names" I neither respect nor trust. GVO is Kiosk hosting revamped and relaunching next month as an MLM "opportunity."

I've looked at Clicknewz but can't find anything about it there. Just wondering what Lynn or anyone else thinks about this. I've yet to find a downline "opportunity" that wasn't a scam. I don't trust them. Thanks.

Hi Rick,
Welcome! Most of the members here do Internet/Affiliate marketing so I'm not sure you'll find much in the way of MLM info. Personally I'm not familiar with any forums where you could find this info. Hope someone else can help.

I would say go with your gut, if you don't respect or trust the people, don't join the business. There are however many great network marketing businesses where building a downline is part of it and they are not all scams. Maybe do a search on Google for a forum that has more to do with network marketing.

OR build something for yourself without a downline and hang out here to learn more about affiliate/Internet marketing.

Hey Angie,

Thanks, I'm very anti-MLM. GVO is being promoted like all the rest.

Join for only $1, then $44.95 monthly. Recruit just two and it's free. Join now so you can ride the "Big Names" coattails. Do nothing and spillover will make you rich. No Integrity "Big Names" selling dreams for quick bucks. Makes me want to puke!

I respect Lynn and wondered what she thinks of this product. Is it worth $45 monthly? Why isn't she promothing it if it's so great? My guess is because she does have Integrity.

People don't seem to understand that an MLM "opportunity" is not a business. You are an independent contractor with NO control. Everything can change over night and you are left with nothing. You might as well just flush the money down the toilet.

I haven't heard much about this, but if it's Joel Therien of Kiosk that is running this he is definitely a stand up guy. I know him fairly well and he's very sincere.

I'm not into MLM at all, but I know people who do well with it. But there's always some sort of hype built up around 'easy' and 'quick' money.

Not sure why Joel would go this route with Kiosk, but I know that he was close to doing something in the supplement industry along these lines last year.

Not all MLM's are scams. The Business Model works if its for you. You just have to decide if you are willing to do the work. I do have friends that have made a very good living with various MLM's. Just make sure you check out what everyone has to say about it! I've done a lot with MLM's and love the Business Model but its just not for me right now!

Good Luck with everything I hope everything works out for you
If I can help any more let me know

I haven't heard anything about it... but that's not saying much as I've been traveling this month and otherwise "have my blinders on". Meaning I've been busy working on my own projects and haven't opened any promotional emails in a few weeks.

It sounds to me like your mind is already made up about it.
