Is Thrive a Scam?

I am sure you chance on this article to figure out if Thrive is a legitimate company and if you should be a part the Thrive group. You have come to the right place because I will expose everything you need to know about Le-vel Thrive in order for you to make an informed decision.

Similar to Visalus, another Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) company in the health and weight loss industry, they catches the attention of consumers who want to change their lifestyle to look and feel better about themselves. They attract people by providing them with a “diet plan” which usually takes between 2 to 3 months to complete.

Le-vel-Thrive-8-weekNo doubt you will lose weight after completing the “diet plan”, but I am pretty sure the same results can be achieved even without the help of the products from Le-vel Thrive or Visalus.

There is a lot of hype surrounding Le-vel Thrive, you may have heard from your friends or family members, or from the internet that the Thrive products really works and can change your life. Well, I stand neutral on the claims people have on the Thrive products because I heard tonnes of good praises as well as tonnes of bad experiences, and most importantly, I have tried the products.

In general, Le-vel Thrive is not a scam. It is a legitimate MLM company that promotes their very own health supplement products and gives you an opportunity to make money with them. If you have the right attitude and the right characteristics, you might actually make money and lose weight at the same time.

Though Le-vel Thrive is not a scam, I will not be overly confident to join them without first knowing what I am getting into.

Now let us take a deep look…

The Le-vel Thrive Products

There are people who swore that Le-vel Thrive products have changed their life for the better but yet there are people who felt no difference or have negative experiences after trying the products. Well, all I can say is that the products do not work for everyone, you have to try it yourself to know because the ingredients used in the products have different reaction to different body immunities.

Le-vel-Thrive-productMy personal experience with the products wasn’t a good one. I was given the direction to take 1 to 2 pills in the morning and drink the shake 40 minutes later and apply the patch. It was a Sunday morning I remember, I took the Thrive’s products according to the directions and went for a run, well to be honest, I definitely feel very energetic while running and I felt that I could run non-stop for hours, however, after a while I felt jittery and started to have migraine.

At first I didn’t think that it had anything to do with the Thrive products but I was appalled when I saw ingredients of the pill. The pill contains high level of stimulants (like caffeine), though they are safe to consume, but if not taken properly, it may have adversed effect. That explains why I felt jittery. There is no guarantee if the products will have any side effects on the long-term, but as studies say that a high level of stimulants consumed daily will have adverse effect on health. This is personal experience and I thought I need to share this with you.

Though the product may not work for me, it doesn’t mean that it will not work for you. You have to try it yourself to know.

Trying the product is one thing, promoting it and recruiting people into the business is another. If you want to know why 95% of the people who entered the Le-vel Thrive business fail, then continue reading…

Making Money Online is not easy and it is not difficult. Anyone can do it. Let me show you how!

The Business Opportunity – Worthy or not?

In order to join the Thrive Business Opportunity and be a part of their compensation plan, you have to be an active member. In order to stay active, you have to have an autoship program with them and the cheapest autoship product will cost a minimum of $100/mth. To be honest, I am pretty sure when you are first introduced to Thrive, you would thought that the products and the “amazing” opportunity is an easy sell right? If you have that thought, lose it now because you will be in a great shock.

Tonnes of Rejection – Are you ready for it?

Who would have thought that people will turn down an opportunity to lose weight and to make money at the same time right? Well, the truth is, not everyone has the same mindset as you. The price of the product itself may already shun people away.

Well, in every business, you will tend to face lots of rejection, and my first question to you is, “are you ready to face it”? Are you ready to be a salesperson? If anyone who tries to recruit you by telling you that you are not required to sell, those are just bulls**t.

Where to get your leads/Prospects?

le-vel-thrive-network-marketingWhen you join the Le-vel Thrive business opportunity, depending on the team that you are joining, most likely you will be asked to list down a group of people whom you think will be “suitable” to try the 8 week Le-vel Thrive experience. After you list them, you are to contact them to share with them about the amazing Thrive.

Let me share with you the statistics that I have gained through years of experience with similar MLM companies. Out of 100 people whom you contact, most likely only 20 people may be interested in the Thrive experience. Out of the 20 people, maybe 3 of them will actually try the Thrive products and if you are lucky, you may get to sponsor 1 into the business opportunity.

As you may know, in order to create a sustainable income with Le-vel Thrive, you have to recruit people. Only depending on product sales will not get you anywhere. So, with that said, after you have expanded the 100 people who you think will be interested in Thrive, what then? How and where will you find your leads/prospects? Do you start canvassing on the streets?

You have to believe in the products in order to promote it

There is no point trying to sell a product or promote a business opportunity if you don’t believe in the product itself. It is just unethical. To be successful in any kind of business, you have to be passionate about it. Many times I saw distributors who were just handing out flyers and do not possess the enthusiasm and the drive to make people interested in the products.

If you have the “just trying” mentality and not the “I must succeed” mentality, I would suggest that you do not join the business opportunity because most likely you will fail. So my question to you is “Are you passionate about Thrive and do you have the “I must succeed” mentality?”. If your answer is YES, then you are ready to be a part the Thrive Business Opportunity.

Joining the right team determines your success or failure

When you are new to the business and you do not know where or how to start, where do you seek help? Your team leader I guess. If you join a team who only cares about their own interest, you are doomed for failure. You probably know by now that you need to be a great salesperson in order to be successful in the Thrive business, but if you don’t have a mentor who is willing to coach and guide you, do you think you can be successful.

A word of caution to you if you are thinking of joining Le-vel Thrive is that unless you are already a very good salesperson yourself, you should not join the business opportunity if you think that you will not get the level of support you deserve from your team leader or members.

My Sincere Advise to You

Though I had a bad experience with the Le-vel Thrive products, I still will not discredit it because I know it works for some people. The claims about the product suitability to everyone and anyone is untrue, you have to try it for yourself to know. In terms of the Business Opportunity, if you are passionate about the Thrive Products and you know that you have a mentor who can guide and coach you to success, go for it, otherwise, stay away from it. The Le-vel Thrive business opportunity is not suitable for everyone.

By chance if you are trying to find an opportunity to start a home-based business but you do not know where to start, I would highly suggest that you check this out. I have been in the Make Money Online industry for quite a while now and I know what works and what doesn’t. If you would like, you may contact me to find out more (my contact details as below).

Hi Jack, I had never heard of Le-vel Thrive, and I am so glad you did a post on it! It reminds me of the Herbalife days when I used to sell it! It also is a MLM, but you don’t realize it until you go to a conference, then it is almost cult like! I know you want people to make their own decision about this product, and I have, a big NO THANK YOU! How long has Le-vel Thrive been in business? Great review, thank you!
With Kind Regards,

    Hi Linda,

    Le-vel Thrive is relatively new and there is a lot of hype on this company. Just like you have mentioned, it is almost like Herbalife. There are so many MLM companies out there claiming that their products are unique but the benefits for each of them seem similar to me.

Hi Jack. Le-vel sounds very expensive if you’re starting up a new business from home. I doubt many will be successful as most MLM systems need constant feeding with new members/subscribers, etc. The trouble is that so many scams are being carried out right now!

I’ve now got a much better understanding of what Le-vel is all about, so thank you for this helpful info. I’m always alarmed by schemes that offer things you consume as every-one is different and it’s impossible to guarantee the safety of anyone.

If it’s of any interest, a recent BBC documentary carried out by a real life practising medical doctor noticed that not eating for 1 day a week helps improve the immune system and re-invigorate other regenerative aspects of the human cells. Not eating for a short while doesn’t hurt the body just the mind that lives in it.

It’s probably safer to work from home and keep off of the pills.

All the very best and thanks again for this info – You’ve directed me away from Le-vel which may be for the best in my case.

Hi Jack,

Very interesting read . I am a promoter for thrive but only after having success with the products itself . Sounds like what you went thru was kind of a detox in your system. Often times , I tell people to not put on their dft until day 2 and to only take half the shake and not full. You should try the new thrive for kids with no caffeine in it. Adults can also take it. Also, doesn’t sound like you really gave it enough time to work in your system .. A very thoughtful review . I did not experience the full thrive and what it had to offer until day 4. It’s changed my life and I am very grateful for it .

I am not a promoter, but I am currently using the products. I suffer from an autoimmune disorder which leaves me on many days, lethargic and in pain. I sought out someone who was already using it. As you know, no product such as this work for any two people the same way. If it doesn’t help you, simple, don’t use it. For me, it has made a huge difference in my life. No one told me it would help me lose weight, in fact I was told that it would be slow if that happened. All I’ve heard from the people who I know to be promoters-because they had success-is what it’s done for them. When you struggle with arthritis or other autoimmune issues, you will search high and low for something to make your life “liveable”. Has it “cured” me? No, but it is helping tremendously. I would rather spend $150 for nutritional products than spend that same $150 for copays for toxic medications. My choice. I’m pleased thus far.

You guys should read the volumes of links and research that was done in this comments of this article: Clearly this stuff is suspect. They outsourced product development and manufacturing and they are just sending you a crap product that has aspirin and caffeine in it to make you feel good.

Go to the more recent comments at this link. There are tons of resources. Jason Camper (founder) has been accused of being a fraudster before, he has drug abuse problems before and has been accused of stealing credit card info before. Just google his name and the word “fraud” and see what you come up with yourself.
