RECOMMENDED READING: Salt Lake Tribune Expands Series On Multilevel Marketing; Christian Pitchman Poses With Rolls-Royce; Trade’s Defenders Scold Critics; Critics Fire Back

Kudos to the Salt Lake Tribune for expanding on its earlier series on multilevel marketing, which we referenced here. On May 27, the newspaper published two more stories — and one of them features a photograph of a Rolls-Royce with the words “mona vie” emblazoned on its side.

The expensive car is one of the possessions of evangelical Christian Brig Hart, a top-of-the heap MonaVie distributor who openly told the Trib he mixes religion and business. Hart lives in a Florida mansion, and also has a Lamborghini, the newspaper reported.

Hart has made questionable health claims about the benefits of MonaVie’s  juice product, the Trib reported.

In a separate story, the Trib reported on local MLM participants who had given up on the dream.

Both stories have accompanying comments threads in which readers both defend and criticize MLM. As always, the PP Blog views the comments from the defenders as the most instructive. People who complain about MLM are “victim mentality people,” one reader observed. “End of story!”

An MLM critic, meanwhile, opined that the trade was “morally repugnant.” Another quoted scripture and wrote that he believed the “big guy might have had something different in mind than rolls royces and armani for his followers.”

  1. Wonder how long it will be before Mr. Clements tells us how he set this reporter straight? But then there were some great lines in there I am sure Mr. Clements will use to bolster his claims about how great an industry MLM is, and how it gets a bum rap.
