Hello, my friend and a very warm welcome back. Have you been looking for a job online and come across this opportunity to work from home with Cowboy Wealth (Review)?
It seems to keep popping up in unexpected places.
The course opportunity says that it is a personal development capacity. That is code for Melaleuca which is an MLM company.
Why do they try to hide this information? It always comes to light!
Disclaimer: I am not associated or affiliated with Cowboy Wealth or Melaleuca in any way. If you join it I will not be compensated at all.
In this review, I’m going to explain how it works, how much it costs, and if it is a legit way to make money online.
This post may contain affiliate links. This means if you click a link and make a purchase I will receive a commission. The price you pay will not be affected.
Let’s dive right in:
Cowboy Wealth Review Overview
Product Type: Become a distributor for Melaleuca (MLM company)
Product Name: Cowboy Wealth
Founder: Chris and Cathy Sorenson
Cost Of Purchase: Various pricing for Melaleuca but a minimum of $60 a month on products.
Is It Recommended? No.
If you have seen the video about this offer you can be forgiven for thinking that this is a program to make money when people buy shopping, fill their car with gas and when eating out at certain restaurants.
Going to the website cowboywealth.com tells you to get back to the person who referred you and absolutely nothing else!
There is no contact us information!
forgive me if I’m wrong but I thought these people wanted us to join their business?
How are we supposed to do that?
Find their Youtube channel and phone a number that plays you a recorded message!
I just don’t understand this marketing concept at all 🙂
If you want a very easy concept check out affiliate marketing.
How Does Cowboy Wealth Work?
The company says you can earn $500-$2,500 part-time hours or anywhere between $2,500-$10,000 per month for full-time hours.
How do you get to earn this money? It took a long time to find that out but eventually there was a breakthrough.
Cowboy wealth is recruiting you to join the Melaleuca Wellness Company which is a legit MLM that has been around since September 1985.
It works a lot like Herbal Life and Amway.
How Much Is Cowboy Wealth and Melaleuca To Join?
To join Cowboy Wealth you have to maintain a 50 a month personal volume average? What does that even mean?
For Melaleuca You have to pay $29.00 to join and a yearly fee of $19.90 and also maintain a personal volume of 150 a month which is the products you have to purchase for resale.
That makes sense for Melaleuca because of the products but for Cowboy Wealth it doesn’t make sense!
Surely it cannot be 50 people per month, can it?
How Does Melaleuca Work?
The Melaleuca Company has products in 4 categories:
1. Home Cleaning and Laundry Products
2. Foods and Supplements
3. Personal Care and Beauty Products
4. Pure Essential Oils.
All of the products are biodegradable and eco-friendly and they contain natural extracts, essential oils, minerals, enzymes, and other natural compounds that are used to manufacture the products.
Chemicals like chlorine, ammonia, abrasives. phosphates, and parabens, are not used in their products.
As you can imagine these products cost a lot more than products from a store.
There are 2 ways that this company works:
1. You have to recruit other people to join it and
2. You have to sell the products and maintain a 150 personal volume a month. This is about 60-80 dollars a month.
The Difficulties With This Business Model:
Not only do you have to find people to join the program and train them to do the same, but you also have to teach them to sell the products themselves.
This process then has to be duplicated with every new member that joins!
How do you recruit others? tell your family and friends and when they run out you would need to run paid ads which can cost a lot of money for not a lot of return.
How much do you get paid?
Product Advocates make 11%
In the above image, it explains that you get paid $174 a month for the Director level which is $2,093 a year. That is not very much money, is it?
Most people that join MLMs don’t make even that much!
The compensation plan of this MLM is very complicated so you can look at it yourself here.
The Cons Of Cowboy Wealth
No Pros for cowboy wealth because they hide the fact that they are recruiting for an MLM company.
Why can they not just be honest about Melaleuca, after all, it is a legitimate company that has been around for over 30 years.
Maybe it is because many people don’t like the MLM model!
The Pros Of Melaleuca

No Harmful ingredients used
The company has been around for 35+ years
Training is included on selling and recruiting
The Cons Of Melaleuca

Hard to recruit new people to join
The founder denies the company is an MLM!
Is Cowboy Wealth Or Melaleuca A Scam?
Apart from the cloak and dagger part about how the Cowboy Wealth company works, I can say that neither of these companies is a scam.
One recruits you into the other using a sales funnel process which is how most online businesses operate.
The main problem with Melaleuca is the price of the products and the packs they put them into.
A lot of their products can be found on marketplaces like Amazon and they cost a lot less which makes it harder for distributors to sell them.
Also, When things are sold in packs there are always products that are not so popular that you can get stuck with.
Do I Recommend Melaleuca To My readers? Yes and No.
If you really like to sell products face to face and you have done it before then this is a legit MLM company that will look after you then I say yes.
On the other hand, If you are brand new and have never sold a product or recruited anyone to join a company then I would say no to you.
For a beginner, this is not the easiest business model for your first time.
Personally, I prefer to use the affiliate marketing method because I can choose any product to promote that takes my fancy.
The method I took to build my own business is free to join, I can promote as many or as few products as I like, I don’t need to recruit, and I get paid passively.
The process is explained to you step by step and it can have you firing your boss and changing your life.
