Zija -- Anyone here ever heard of it?

    For the last two or three years in my community, people have been buying and selling this stuff called Zija -- a health drink of sorts. The company has really taken off in my area. The guy who brought it here has since retired from teaching and coaching, and a couple other teachers in the area have been able to retire and focus all their energy on the product.

    I know all of the people in my community who have been selling it, and they've tried to get me to jump aboard and join them. Being as stubborn as I am, I put it off -- until now. A former teacher of mine got me to "sign up" today. This teacher is making well over $4,000 week -- more than what he makes per month teaching -- and the guy who brought the stuff to the area is one of the top sellers in the world.

    I'm excited and nervous at the same time about this opportunity. I'm excited because of the potential for some extra income, and nervous that I won't know what I'm doing and somehow screw it all up.

    Anyone got any advice?

    Don't put any money out upfront to "get into" the business. Sounds like another example of multi level markteting destin to fail.

    By any chance is the company HQ in Ogden Utah?

    No money needed up front.

    And yeah, I believe it's in Ogden.

    As long as you don't have to lay out a nickle of your own money than all you have to lose is your time.

    Ogden is the capitol of multi level marketing schemes gone astray.

    Sounds like you've already missed out on being the first in your area, which means you don't have a chance to make any money, even if there ever was a chance.

    Also, don't believe what people tell you. Even if they believe it themselves, we all have ways of lying to ourselves and letting our brain shade things in ways that we want to believe. I doubt very much the teacher is making a net profit of $1,000/month.

    At the very best, what a company like this is doing is outsourcing all of the risk to you while reaping the profits from your sales.

    It's probably not a good sign that when I started typing Zija into Google it said, the first option it gave me was "ZIJA SCAM"

    I thought this thread was going to be about the Giants' pitcher.

    I'll bet you $20 this is a pyramid scheme.

    Of course it is, just now they call it multi level marketing

    My advice is you shouldn't have listened to Margene when she was pitching Gojo Blast to you, because it will just wreck your family in the long run. And it won't help kids in Africa after all.
