Shaklee A Scam ?

Every business opportunity
that hits the internet usually has to hear the screams of scam from the buying public. The Shaklee model is no different, but rather than just listen to, or ignore, the cries of foul, let’s instead take a look to see if the scam claims are legitimate with this one.

Shaklee was founded over 50 years ago by Dr. Forrest Shaklee, who had devoted 40 years of his life to researching vitamins and minerals. At that time, people didn’t really understand the health benefits of a daily vitamin, so in order to get the word out, Shaklee opted to follow the MLM business model in hopes that with a one on one interaction, potential customers would understand how taking vitamins could be a viable, healthy option. So, to recap, we have a company that was on the cutting edge of an industry that is now a multi-billion dollar going concern, and that has also outlasted almost its entire young, upstart competitor’s.

So far so good, but the Shaklee name really came to prominence in 2004 when the company was purchased by billionaire investor Roger Barnett, who is still the CEO of the company at the present time. Under his guidance, Shaklee became a household name, aided by features on such shows as Rachael Ray and Oprah, who included Shaklee products in her annual list of favorite things; a ringing endorsement indeed, but it doesn’t stop there.

Since their inception, Shaklee has laid out over $250 million in research and development of their products, and have expanded their business to 7 countries. Their products are used by NASA, and the US Olympic Ski Team, of which they are a major sponsor. That sort of visibility and acceptance does not sound like it would be from a company that is out to defraud anyone, so where do all the scam claims come from?

It can actually come from a couple of places, and usually starts with people who hear Multi-Level Marketing and automatically assume that it’s some sort of illegal Ponzi scheme, but in truth, the worst of those usually don’t involve a physical product, and are instead usually just money pyramids. Plus, you have to remember that most of those schemes come tumbling down in very short order, and I can’t think of one that lasted 50 weeks, never mind 50 years.

The other type of people who will loudly voice their opinion are those that have failed in the system; it’s far easier to point a finger at the company than blame yourself for failing. Getting involved in any MLM requires hard work and effort on the part of whomever signs up; if they don’t do that they will fail, and unfortunately many choose to drag the company name through the mud after they quit. Others will try and fail, but Shaklee will still be there, long after those people have gone, because the truth is, they are a legitimate successful company, and definitely not a scam.
