Careers in Multi-Level Marketing

Find out the good, bad, and ugly about multi-level marketing (MLM). For many people, it is a good second income, and a few even earn large incomes, but some lose money working in MLM. Come discover whether you have what it takes to be successful in direct sales.

Our panel will consist of representatives with Primerica, Mary Kay, and Plexus Worldwide, who will tell their MLM journeys, discuss what one needs to be successful, and provide information about their companies.
This free seminar will take place at the Main Library on Thursday, March 22nd, from 6-8 PM. Registration is required; you can do so online or by calling the Career Center at (225) 231-3733.
