I'm kind of iffy about MLM - everyone I know now who sells got into more to order their own stuff and score the occassional freebie. I used to "sell" melaluca just to order for myself. I would place orders for other people when they asked me about it, I was never about the "sell sell sell" push that everyone else seemed to be. No one ever pushed me to recruit either.
I was also involved with Melaluca to use the products. I have the same experience as you. Nobody pushed me to recruit or sell, and they don't seem to have the vast array of endless meetings that I hear about from many MLM's.
