    nadlique, i’ve been following your blog for about a month and i found your entries are very useful. i would like to ask your opinion about Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) business in general. i’ve lots of friends promoting this type of business to me, and all of them guaranteed that i can make lots of money by joining them. the returns promised by them seem too good to be true, sometimes downright ridiculous. so, what’s your opinion on this?

  2. Hi armandd,

    Great to hear that you have been reading my blog 🙂

    With regards to my opinions on MLM, I’ll try to post up an entry sometime tonight. If not, try to check back tomorrow night or something.

    Cheers 🙂
