This blog post is the companion post to the video: Why Choose the MLM Model for Your Business? – A CEO Interview. Find out what makes MLM, direct selling, network marketing, and party plan business plans desirable to so many CEO and executives.

Babener: It’s my pleasure to be speaking with Kris Krohn, he is one of the Founders of Strongbrook (REIC). When www.mlmlegal.com sponsors conferences in Las Vegas, we often have the CEOs of companies attend because it’s important to know what makes MLM companies great. And, of course, my observation is that nobody starts on top.

Kris: That’s right. Everybody starts at the bottom.

It has been a major influence in their lives and created some very positive changes.” We decided that we were not going to tweak our formula anymore.
