Who will be the next $1,000,000,000 company? There are 6 companies that have sales of $800,000,000 or more, in 2014. Will one of those be the next giant in the industry?


There you have the top 16 top network marketing companies in the world. I’m not endorsing any of them. If you decide that one of these is the right company for you, I’d urge you to do your own due diligence! People do lose money in network marketing and direct sales.
