LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - January 07, 2014) -

Herbalife Belgium:

In a dramatic turn, a Belgian appeals courts reverses a lower court ruling and hold that Hebalife is no pyramid, but is in fact a legitimate direct selling business opportunity. The court validates "personal use" by distributors in pyramid analysis.

Herbalife: What the Short Sellers Missed:

BurnLounge: Personal Use Recognized

In this case, a federal court expresses validity to distributor personal use, but rejects purchases of packages and sales tools where the predominant reason for purchase is merely to qualify for recruiting commissions in the opportunity.

FTC v. BurnLounge: Lessons Learned for MLM/Direct Selling

Editor and direct selling attorney, Jeff Babener of Babener & Associates, discusses these issues in his trilogy of articles on personal use and network marketing. 

The pivotal issue of "personal use" will be thoroughly covered in the next Starting and Running the Successful MLM Company Conference taking place February 2014.

The conference will be held February 27th & 28th, 2014, which is quickly approaching!

For more than 26 years, leading industry experts have educated the executives of starting and existing MLM, direct selling, network marketing, and party plan companies on how to structure their compensation plans, legalize their companies, recruit key employees and top-ranking distributors, develop business models, generate leads, fund their business, establish their website and technology platforms, better understand the direct selling industry, and so much more.

The next MLM Startup Conference takes place February 27th & 28th, 2014 in Las Vegas. View the conference flyer page at http://www.mlmlegal.com/srs2.html to learn more. 

This is the original MLM Startup Conference -- responsible for launching many industry-leading companies -- perfected over the course of a quarter of a century to ensure the highest quality of information, the most knowledgeable experts, and the most practical advice from qualified experts.

Over the course of two days, attendees will hear from scores of industry experts, and if they choose, can sign up to meet with the speakers for individual one-on-one time. A full list of speakers and their biographies/credentials can be found at http://www.mlmlegal.com/bio.html.

The educational information gained by attending this event is invaluable. Here are just a few of the testimonials from past attendees:

"We have a traditional business at the moment and we are looking to take it into the realm where it's more personalized, it's more about building people and an experience. It has been absolutely worth our trip. We are looking to take our business to the next level and build relationships."

"The reason I came to the show was to learn more about how to launch my direct sales company. I'm very comfortable and accustomed to selling through more traditional networks; however, I believe that the product that I'm launching is more suitable for direct sales; to get direct-to-consumer faster and in greater sales."

"[I've] been in network marking for 30 years [but] we are learning a lot of things about how to launch, how to reach the people we need to have, and again, the things that are required to make a successful company, not only for us but especially for our customers and for our affiliates."

Each attendee will receive a FREE copy of the Starting and Running the Successful MLM Company Manual.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...

Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
