Iam currently present at the ACN IBO training. Despite negative opinions on the net they are honest about not making money overnight and it requiring hardwork too be successful at this business. So, makes it very different from other networking schemes. Later on this week I will be checking in with entities such as Comcast, Sprint, etc in order to see if there is really a business connection. There is a common fact that should be clear -- no matter what the cost of joining the cost does not determine if you will be successful or not, but the effort involved. At least with ACN you are assissted in attempting to make money and run it as a business.
