What is Youngevity About?
Youngevity is an MLM business created back in 1997 by Dr. Joel Wallach. Now it’s ran by his son and daughter-in-law. Youngevity sells over 1000 products ranging from health, beauty, home, and pet care. In my review we’ll discuss the ins and outs along with the compensation plan. Youngevity is not a scam. A pyramid scheme is a business that pays you from the recruits of the company, this company however, like many other MLMs today, pay you by the sale of products.
The Good & the Bad
PRO #1 – Promote from 1000s of products
PRO #2 – Many different niches to choose from (health, beauty, pet care, coffee, etc.)
PRO #3 – Only $25 to become a distributor
CON #1 – Products cost too much/ pricey packs
CON #2 – Have to manage a multi level organization
CON #3 – Depend on your recruits to work to make the big bucks
Who Would Youngevity Be a Good Fit For?
Anyone interested in any one of their products. You can choose to focus on a particular niche within the wide product line. Say you’re passionate about coffee. You could make a website about coffee and sell the products online. You could do this for any other of the niches Youngevity has (health, beauty, pet care, heart health, bone health, etc.)
If you’re interested in joining an MLM that has been in business for more than 10 years. You’ve got to be careful when choosing an MLM business. Ava Anderson Non Toxic was a popular MLM until it shut down. Then you would have to start all over!
Youngevity Training & Support
Not much training available for new distributor. Your main lifeline will be your upline. They should show you everything you need to know about the company. Then it’s up to you to expand your business.
If you purchase a CEO Mega Pack you can receive special training which teaches you how to advance in rank and build a successful business in a quicker time, but this pack costs $499.

My Final Opinion of Youngevity
I don’t see anything unique about Youngevity. It does have several product lines which can be a good thing. The compensation plan is not that great. I’d like to see more bonuses. I do think it’s pretty cool to earn one of the jackets. As you know, you need to be a top earner in the company to earn one.
Youngevity can be a vehicle you use to reach financial freedom. I prefer not to do MLM because I really dislike direct sales and even recruiting. I prefer to choose a vehicle that is proven and that I can do at home. I put my efforts into internet marketing. Not only can you build a wealthy career out of it, but it is mobile. So I can make run my business from anywhere with an internet connection.
