  • Herbalife Plans To Make Its Pyramid Scheme More Lethal [View article]
    Herbalife - counts on four main ingredients.

    1. uneducated
    2. minorities
    3. Poor
    4 the dream - of riches

    it's great that this issue is all over the internet why? because more and more poor people have internet access-

    where knowledge is power - the internet and social media has provided more access to information on HLF other than the company line.

    Now more poor, uneducated, and minorities have access to other data and information not just HLF or one of their meetings.

    sunshine is the great disinfectant. knowledge is power. this is what will hurt HLF more than the FTC.

  • UPS: An Important Step In 3-D Printing Evolution [View article]
    " Assuming UPS are able to purchase these direct from Stratasys for 20 percent cheaper at $20,000, it costs UPS just $2 million to deploy one printer per location."

    sorry Jonathan but UPS isn't spending crap- ZERO. all of the money is being spend by the individual franchise owners. these are nice toy machines that make great little toys. but, the franchise owner is going to get stuck with the bill. these machines change so rapidly and become obsolete so fast that buying this machine this yr will be replaced by something else next yr.

    good luck with ROI on this venture. just go to amazon, home depot etcc and get 3d products / toys.

  • UPS: An Important Step In 3-D Printing Evolution [View article]
    the ups store is a franchise and NOT corp owned. with many individual store owners. I think 20k plus inventory on top of there current cost structure is a tough pill to swallow? the return would take a long time given their 10 yr contract.

    number one, not all stores have the room for these machines, and not all stores have a market for these items.

    number two, ups has tried many new items at these stores and failed because the store owners said NO. and I think this is a nice idea but not very profitable for the store owners.

    unless the stores can lease these machines at a very low cost, get low cost inventory, and re-coupled their investment quickly I don't see the value in it.

  • Don't Fall For Herbalife's Disastrous Numbers Hidden In Plain Sight [View article]
    The Specialist: nice article. in addition, HLF has spent more money changing their policies like the gold std return which is a positive change but has a real cost to the company. now they have to eat those returns with a 90 % or more churn rate on new Dist. most of that product can now be returned. this and other changes to their polices all have costs build in , unlike the past where HLF just duped the churns and kept the money, now they have real returns to contend with.

    whether your for or against HLF all of this light that is brought upon the company has increased awareness to their game. Sunshine has brought awareness to future dist. or members as to how HLF operates and will hurt future earnings.

    HLF has made a lot of money because they operated in the shadows and under the radar but no more. more and more people are wise to their system so their fishing net is catching fewer and fewer fish.
