  1. Choosing a home based business, is like a marriage: Some people find true love with their first partner. Others need a few to 'practise' before taking a leap forward 😉 I fall into the second category. You see, no matter how good a company, leadership, growth and/or payplan is, I'm above all a product user; I have to feel the 'love', to share the excitement. Basically going back to essence of word-of-mouth advertising.

    Out of all great opportunities Talk Fusion is distinctly different, because it's a 'box of videotools' that allow you to brand ANY person or business or MLM opportunity. So next time you are on holiday with World Ventures and drink an Organo Gold coffee at the beach (for example), you capture your memories instantly using your iPad/iPhone with the Talk Fusion App, and you sent out a Talk Fusion video email to your friends and family showing them what a fantastic time you had have, and direct them to your signup link. Oh … and you get an email confirmation when they saw the video, so you can then do a 3-way to follow up. Go figure why we are in momentum. Talk Fusion video products are second to none, and everybody wants them. And thanks to the Diamond Rush Training System it's made easy to go from 0 to $10k/month under 200days with the only GLOBAL instant pay, binary compensation plan in the industry. First come first serve. But yeah the other companies are ok too … 8)

  2. Ted, congratulations on the excellent job you do for our Industry!
    Growth, Momentum, Products, Leadership and a global presence are very important .
    There are indeed a few good MLM companies out there (and one always thinks ours is the best, like I do…) but I'm curious to know how do you rate the importance of being part of a great team that's really there to support you, that has a long time perspective and has an Educational System to guide you along the way?

    1. If you are look at Organo Gold and have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me. I am in Organo Gold and it’s the place you want to be! Thanks

  3. Thanks Ted for this List.  Its such a benefit to save people some time and more importantly "positioning of equity" timing with laying out the best of the best. Great Opportunities here – we all know that Direct Sales is the most amazing platform for creating generational wealth.  Thank you again.
    Rhonda Martin / Founder & 6 Figure Income Earner OrganoGold

  4. I suspect this post will be deleted because it is not positive. This list is ridiculous as the analysis is so flawed. 
    Analysing opportunities to join or build is dependent on which country you join. Terms like 'growth' is so spurious. Amway and Oriflame – growth companies? Amways growth is mainly India and China or advertising driven. Oriflame is a dog in most countries or nickel and dime opportunity. ACN has collapsed in most countries. etc etc. 

  5. what about TriVita Ted..we opened 10 countries last year, on target to open 90 more in next 9 years,  and add thousands of customers every week through the infomercials which distributors can share through the co-op advertising..no other company does this… they have close to 3 million customers now. no way they should not be on the list.. huge steady growth for the last few years

  6. FM Group in the Philippines is the fastest growing direct selling business in Asia.  You can start your own business with a small capital.  What is great in joining in FM Group is that you will have an international business opportunity – that is you can invite your friends from any country that has FM center (check http://www.fmworld.com).  Join us!  Be my business partner. 

  7. Great Job Ted, fantastic.
    Looking forward to next year when Live The source will be on that list.
    We are just getting started. Less than 10K folks and only 2 years old.
    Regards,
    Bo

  9. Great post and I like to see my company, Talk Fusion, ranked amongst these.  That said, all these companies are great and should be a guideline to pick a decent company to build based on your passions in life.  Talk Fusion is not for everyone but this gives a nice mix of opportunities to pick from.  My point being there is so much JUNK out there that people start that are undercapitalized, not in the DSA Direct Selling Association, and just plain silly to be frank.  
    A solid opportunity needs to be funded properly, have a unique product, have a reasonable looking website that will attract people to join your opportunity, and all of these have those things going for them.  Great job on the post! 

  10. Join a rock solid company that is making an impact on the lives of others, with stable leadership and a product that you can't purchase on Amazon and ebay day after day, that is one thing I love about Talk Fusion is the value that is offered, we get so much for such a little fee. There are a lot of companies, but ask if you would use the product even if you didn't get paid for sharing it?  Is the company global and expanding, in todays world you definitely have to get out of one country and make a difference worldwide.  My reason for being where I am today is because of my dream, I know I can live my dream with this company.  Glad to be with a company that is in the momentum stage.  I love that last part:  These listed companies do have something special:  Growth, Momentum, Products, Leadership and often a global presence.  Great information Ted.  Thanks so much.

  11. SEACRET DIRECT started its direct sales branch in May of 2011.
    When you join this Seacret Direct network marketing opportunity, you
    have the opportunity to capitalize on the growing demand for quality
    skin care products in the multi-billion dollar skin care industry and
    grow an extremely profitable home business. Seacret Direct is the coming age of a new opportunity for serious
    internet entrepreneurs and anyone who knows that being at the right
    place at the right time is one of the keys to success.

    With their origins in Dead Sea between Israel and Jordan, the Seacret
    Spa skin care products were first introduced to the market in Phoenix,
    Arizona, back in 2005. Since then, Seacret Spa has become the leader
    in cosmetics, using the natural minerals from the Dead Sea to produce
    the highest quality and effective skincare products now available in
    600 locations in the US and 30 different countries.

    As a testament to the quality of the Seacret Spa?s line of products,
    acosmetics giant wanted to buy Seacret, but Seacret management
    declined. As it stands, this manufacturing giant is the manufacturer
    for the Seacret Spa line of products. Never before has this company
    manufactured products that it did not own.

    As a result of Seacret Spa?s tremendous success (over $500 million in
    sales since 2005), Management decided to leverage Seacret Spa?s brand
    name credibility, infrastructure and resources and expand their
    distribution by opening up a direct sales (MLM) distribution channel.
    The new direct sales branch of Seacret Spa is called Seacret Direct.
    Together, they are becoming known as just Seacret.

    This effectively offers everyday people a unique opportunity to build
    a direct sales business and grow a very substantial passive income in
    a multi-billion dollar industry.
