Diversity has become a popular term used to describe a distributor’s participation in two or more MLM or direct selling companies. Here is what the LifeVantage Policies and Procedures say about what you “can” and “cannot” do as to other direct selling companies:
Can you participate in other direct selling companies? Absolutely!
Can you introduce other LifeVantage Distributors and customers to competing products and/or a COMPETING BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY? Absolutely NOT!
As to participating in other direct selling ventures, Section 6 – Conflicts of Interest, of the LifeVantage Policies and Procedures, states (in part):
“Independent Distributors may participate in other direct selling or network marketing or multilevel marketing ventures (collectively ‘Network Marketing Ventures’), and Independent Distributors may engage in selling activities related to non-LifeVantage products and services if they desire to do so. . . “
However, as Section 6 continues, it clearly points out what a Distributor CANNOT DO! It states:
“If an Independent Distributor elects to participate in another Network Marketing Venture, in order to avoid conflicts of interest and loyalties, Independent Distributors must adhere to the following:
Section 6.1 – Non-Solicitation:
“During the term of the Agreement, an Independent Distributor shall not engage in any actual or attempted recruitment or enrollment of a LifeVantage Independent Distributor for other Network Marketing Ventures, either directly or through a third party. This includes, but is not limited to, presenting or assisting in the presentation of another Network Marketing Venture to any LifeVantage Independent Distributor or Customer . . .”
Furthermore, Section 18 – Definitions, of the LifeVantage Policies and Procedures clarifies what constitutes recruiting:
“Recruit – means, for purposes of LifeVantage’s Conflict of Interest Policy (Section 6), actual or attempted solicitation, enrollment, encouragement or effort to influence in any other way, either directly or through a third party, another LifeVantage Independent Distributor or Customer, Direct or Retail, to enroll or participate in another multilevel marketing, network marketing or direct sales opportunity. This conduct constitutes recruiting even if the Independent Distributor’s actions are in response to an inquiry made by another Independent Distributor or Customer.”
We trust that this explanation helps you to understand the use and limitations of diversity within the direct selling industry.
