Brad Alkazin – Vemma Top Earner

what happened to Vemma One thing you can say about Brad Alkazin is that he was born into MLM. His parents are Tom & Bethany Alkazin, top MLM earners with Amway and Vemma. How good are Tom & Bethany you ask?

Well, they are Vemma top earners at $400,000.00 per month. They are also Vemma’s first Pinnacle Leaders.

Okay, enough about mamma and daddy. Let’s get back to their son.

Brad Alkazin has shown that the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree. He is a top Vemma earner, and his monthly income is around $220,000.00 per month. And he isn’t even 30-years old yet!

If you have never heard of Vemma, it is because it is a relatively new multi-level marketing company that focuses on nutritional beverages, energy drinks, and weight management products.

To be the new kid on the block, it has done exceptionally well. (well, it DID)

Vemma nutrition combines traditional Eastern health philosophies with modern Western scientific principles.

Vemma items contain minerals, vitamins, aloe vera, organic green tea, and mangosteen. Vemma’s mission is to make sure that everyone, young and old, is at maximum health. It believes that good health is your number one priority, and you should do what is necessary to make sure your body is receiving the nutrients it needs.

Sounds pretty reasonable, right?Is vemma a scam

Whether you want a meal replacement, or you need to re-hydrate during your workout, Vemma has products for you. They also have a sample menu that tells you how to make smart food choices when it comes to proteins, carbs, vegetables, and fats.

If you wonder what type of exercises you should be doing, there is information for that on their website as well.

Brad Alkazin has climbed the rank at Vemma. He is multi-millionaire entrepreneur and part of the “Young People Revolution,” a Vemma plan that focuses on drawing college-aged students and young professionals into the network marketing industry. Vemma isn’t the first MLM that directs its attention to enticing young men and women into direct selling.

Speaking of ‘Brad” – check out what Brad has to say about this one!!!

What happened to Vemma & the controversy behind it

 As far as network marketing companies go, Vemma has had it shares of issues.

Recently, Vemma has been shut down by the FTC for running an alleged pyramid scheme.

Ironically, the Vemma scam that the government accuses this company of is using young people to sell their products, which have garnered complaints from the media, business analysts, and parents.

Vemma has also been accused of using recruitment as a way to make money.

Vemma Italia has got a fine from the government for running an alleged pyramid scam, accusing it of the same thing as the US company is accused of: using recruiting folks as a way to earn money.

Unfortunately, Vemma in Austria and Switzerland have had legal action filed against them. Switzerland has warned its citizens about enrolling with Vemma.

This year, Vemma’s assets have been frozen, and it has been accused of misrepresenting its earning. The company now has a court-appointed monitor who watches its business operations. Vemma can’t pay commissions, enroll new members, offer rewards, and connect sales to MLM.

Essentially, Vemma can’t operate its direct selling business. The US judge that ruled in the decision stated that some of Vemma claims regarding its products and possible profits were ridiculous and absurd.

Man, that’s not good.

I don’t know what the future holds for Vemma, but I know I hate to see folks that thought that this would be a way to run their own home-based business lose their chance.

For those who still want to become a network marketing entrepreneur, I wish you the best.

But it doesn’t look like it will be with Vemma.

Can you imagine how many Vemma marketers are jumping ship?


What happens to Vemma distributors?

 I want to talk about being thankful.

To the people who wanted to build a career with Vemma, and for this to happen, it has to be disappointing.

I know about being disappointed; who doesn’t?  You put your hopes into something, (or someone) only to have it (or him/her) turn out to not be what (or whom) you expected.

It is hard to think like this, but struggles and hardships make you stronger. More importantly, they teach you what NOT to do next time. When you have to go through trials, you learn how strong you are.

It helps to grow your inner strength.

Okay, so Vemma didn’t turn out so well.

There are other MLM to consider, and you definitely now know what to look for in a relationship marketing business.

You can think of this as a life experience, and I am here to tell you, you will have plenty of those during your life time and not all of them are going to have a positive outcome.

I know I have had my fair share of disappointments, but let me just say that I am with a group of folks now that know how to deliver on their promises and you do not have to worry about MLM or recruiting people or anything crazy like the pyramid scams and schemes. You also don’t have to worry about a government coming in and shutting you down either.

Sound too good to be true?

But as I have gotten older, I have learned to be thankful, even in the situations that have turned out negative. If you are a frequent visitor to my blog, then you know I like to tell my stories in order to show my point…LOL.

Yep, bear with me as I tell another one.

At one point in my adult life, I had to move back in with my parents…stop laughing.

As you can only imagine, it didn’t start off on a nice point. I love my parents, but I really didn’t want to be there, and I believe my parents love me, but they really didn’t want me back home.

That was the whole of raising me to be independent, so once my feet crossed that threshold, ciao baby.

You have one home, with three adults, and mind you, I had been on my own for years. Plus, as my grandmother used to say, two women can’t live under the same roof, especially when they share the same personality. Hallelujah!

I knew even before I went back, that my mother and I were going to lock horns. My mother’s personality is the type where she has to be in charge, and what she says goes.

Now, that worked for me when I was 7 years old, but at 27, I really wasn’t hearing it.

But I had to remember: you are in THEIR home, and quite frankly, my parents at this point, owed me nothing, even though I am their child.

So, I bite my tongue (which I am surprised even to this day I still have a tongue in my mouth), and I made the best of the situation until I got on my feet again.

That’s the way I chose to look at it. Not, “Oh, God, help me deal with these two again.” I look at it like, “Thank you, God, I have a place to go, because I could be out on the sidewalk. Please help me get it together, so my parents can have their home to themselves again.”

I really meant it to. My parents didn’t have to tell me yes. They could have just as easily told me no.

Also, I have friends, and both parents are dead. They are an only child, so they don’t even have siblings. So, I told myself they don’t have to change to accommodate me. I have to change to accommodate them, and that’s exactly what I did.

I had a friend ask me once how I can share a home with strangers when I want to travel. I told her not only is it cheaper, but I have met some very nice people with whom I am still friends after all these years.

I told her too that I am thankful that these people are nice enough to offer me a room and board. The thing to remember is that you are not owed anything in this life. So when you receive something, anything in your journey on this earth, be thankful.

It really is all in the manner in which you view things.

Is the glass half empty or half full kinda thing!

The things I have heard come out of people’s mouth are something else.

I know a woman who is living paycheck-to-paycheck, and she told me that she can’t eat leftovers. She told me that once she eats a meal, if it isn’t takeout, she throws it in the garbage.

When she said this to me, I had to put my hand over my mouth to one, stop me from saying something, and two, to keep me from smacking some sense into her head.

 I am genuinely shocked at the lack of common sense in people!


Back to the story of moving back in with my parents: they use to ask me what I would want for dinner. I was working full-time, so I could have bought my own groceries, but they wanted me to save up my money (probably to hurry up and get up out of their home…LOL). I told them that it didn’t matter what was on the stove, I was fine with it. I was thankful that I got a meal. It didn’t matter to me if I had to provide my own meal once in a while, I was just grateful to have a home and a stove to cook one in.

Over the years, that is the attitude I have taken on everything. Instead of my mind going negative first, I have trained it to go positive.

If when I am in a situation in which I am quite unhappy, such as a miserable job, I am thankful that I was able to earn income to purchase whatever.

If I don’t recommend anything else, I would recommend that you start taking a thankful attitude about everything in your life. It will do wonders for your heart and soul.
