first off there is no way to get rich quick unless you have some uncle larry thats a second distant cousin in law once removed that was fond of you and dies, or you get lucky and win some sort of prize drawing and get shafted out of half your money by taxes...the people you see on tv saying they made 5000 dollars a month...thats slim to none youve got a better chance getting struck by lightening...as the above post says invest it in some kind of stock such as a money market account with a more realistic number such as 6-7% annual interest...if he starts out with 2000 dollars by the end of that first year he will have 2120 dollars....by the end of the second 2247.20, 3rd....2382.03 and by the fourth year he will have 2524.95 it is a slow gain but every year you gain 6% interest....then the interest you gain gains interest and so on and so forth...by the time you reach age 65 that 2000 dollars you invest at age 20 will turn into a small fortune....think about that.

I was taken to a couple Quixtar/Amway presentations back in the late 90s. My neighbor was heavily involved, and I don't think it ever really took off for her. She was suckered into the glamour just as you guys described. Despite all the things it COULD do for you, the bottom line is, you still have to find people to buy the products. And, what benefit does their products have over what you can buy at the store? With no customers, you have no business.

Furthermore, it always intruigued me to learn who'* buying this stuff. Seems everyone is a "distributor", but I'm yet to meet one customer. It never added up with me. Seems unequitable in the market place. You have a surplus of supply, but very little demand. Recipe for disaster in my opinion.
