This month, you may be surprised to discover that what you thought is true about compensation plans, isn't true at all.


What should be included in your starter kits and how should you price them?  In our second article, you'll learn all about the best practices for starter kits.



There are a few states in the USA which require registration or filing by your direct selling company.  Find out who they are when you read her column this month.


Compensation Plan Myths

A myth is something many people believe to be true, but it's not.
Compensation plan myths are especially dangerous, because they can lead to poor business decisions.
In this article, we'll share 6 of them with you.


Starter Kits:  Contents & Pricing


There are two purposes of a starter kit:  (a) to get your reps off to a good start and (b) to set an appropriate barrier to entry for your income opportunity.


What should you put into your starter kits, and how should you price them?


OK, tell me.


Ask Victoria

Which states require filing or registration?


In the USA, most states don't require that multilevel marketing companies file or register with them.


However, several of them do.


Party plan companies are not exempt from these requirements.


To be legally compliant in these states, you or your MLM attorney needs to file or register your company.


Who are these states?
