Distributor Agreements (PART 2)

Inconsistent Claims & Facts

“Do you want to own your own business?”

“What is so good about this business is that
we are partners with Huge Companies!”

If your memories serve you well, you might recall most popular approaches from MLM Company to recruit people is something similar. From my point of view, such conversation is not 100% honest.

Distributor Agreement

2. I’m an independent contractor/businessman and NOT an employee or agent of the company and is NOT authorized to act on behalf or bind the company or its affiliates, shareholders, directors, officers or employees.

9. I agree that the company reserves he right and authority to reject this application without assigning any reasons whatsoever.

Condition NO.2 (underlined), “independent contractor/businessman” is merely a name to separate the responsibility of DCHL and distributor. If you were a partner of a conventional business, do you have rules similar to “NOT authorized to act on behalf or bind the company or its affiliates, shareholders, directors, officers or employees”? If a PARTNER that doesn’t have the power/authority to act on behalf of the company, what good does it serve? What difference does it separate from Salesman? Maybe just some fancy names for MLM distributor!

To my opinion, Condition NO.2 is that rule that protect the company if there were any deceptive cases were held against them.

(What good does it serves when one call themselves Independent Business Owner, yet still bounded by the lengthy rules similar to rules of a Salesman?)

It is a common practice for MLM Company to renew their distributor’s distributorship annually. The reason of having such mechanism is to filter out unethical practice distributor. Hence the Condition NO.9 serves as a protective measure. MLM Company just refuses to accept your renewal application will immediately put your business in jeopardy. So much to be your own business owner!

(Sounds like Salesman to me!)

    Dear Aaron,
    Nice Example, I like it alot! Kinda Reminds me of my childhood companion -> boardgames!
    The one that amazes me the most is the Snake & Ladder board games. Maybe I was attracted by the colourful combinations. Or maybe at that time my brain was full with curiosity!

    Anyway, nice to recall some of my childhood!

    The biggest lie or trick the LB people used to describe their business is the term "franchisee".

    Many people who are against direct-selling or MLM fell into it.
