Moms Making Six Figures – Updated Review
Since I originally wrote my Moms Making Six Figures review below, I have gained additional information from people posting comments here. So I thought it was only right to update this review accordingly.
I have copied one key comment here, as I think it’s worth reading to get more insight into what this is all about. I have emphasized certain key parts.
I read your post and decided to take it a little further. I gave them my contact info (which is actually the same info that you are asking me to provide to post something on here) and they contacted me. They explained that they basically refer people to shop online at Melaleuca.
They wrote to me and stated that they were hosting an online educational overview about the online store and that I could login if I wished. I said yes and attended the overview online and what I learned was that Melaleuca is just an online store that sells healthy products. They spoke a little bit about the different product lines. They said that if you want to just shop every now and then you can, but if you want to buy the products at a 30%-50% discount, you have to become a prefered customer. Just like Costco (at least that’s what they compared themselves to) you pay an annual membership fee to shop at a discounted price. $29 is for your first year and then I believe they said $12 for every year you renew your membership. They say you can cancel at anytime.
Near the end of the presentation, they said that as an added bonus, customers that refer people to shop at Melaleuca get some bonuses and then they explained what they do to make money through the Melaleuca referral system.
The presentation lasted about 40mins and it had a lot of detailed information. I actually kinda prefer the presentation way of letting people know about things, because I am such a clutz at actually reading information out of websites. I just kinda breeze through the sentences and I don’t always grab all the details, but that’s just me…lol!
After the presentation, I gave them my number and they called me back and asked me if I wanted to become a preferred customer and if I wanted to start my own business referring people from home to shop. I just said no, that I was actually just curious because I had read a really bad review on you guys. The lady that called me back (I think her name was Dana) started thanking me a lot for attending and that she hoped that I had received a better impression. We talked a bit more about it and then I hung up.
So there you have it, my honest review… and frankly it didn’t seem as scary as it was written here. I hope my review helped.
It’s also interesting to watch this video about Melaleuca:
So, if Melaleuca is indeed an MLM company, then it probably means that the only people getting rich will be those near the top of the pyramid who joined early. And if Moms Making Six Figures recruits people to join Melaleuca, it’s possible that the only moms who are actually making anything those to six figures, are the moms who joined very early.
So, if you join Moms Making Six Figures now, you might not make six figures, but instead, you might contribute to the moms higher up making their six figure income. You see, this is the clever thing about something with a title like this. It implies that you can be one of the moms that makes a six figure income, but that might not actually turn out to be the case. The “moms making six figures” might refer to the moms who set this up, not those who join now. Get it?
Do you honestly think you can earn as much as $100,000 per year by getting people to buy products on Melaleuca?
So, all things considered, I still think this is not worth signing up to, but I just wanted to update this review with the additional information I had received.

What the Moms Making Six Figures website says
When you first look at their website, you will see them claim that you can “achieve the life you want”. They say that no matter what profession you are in, this is the business for you. Well, so they are saying that their business opportunity is for everyone? That’s quite a bold claim.
On the front of their site are some introduction videos. The first one is just a nice welcome and an invitation for you to find out more. The subsequent videos appear to be by moms who have achieved success through Moms Making Six Figures.
From what I can tell, these women do seem real, and appear to be genuinely pleased with their success. However, nothing is revealed about how that success was actually achieved or what Moms Making Six Figures actually contains. At this point, while seemingly genuine, the videos are 100% enthusiasm and 0% actual substance.
Digging a little deaper, I found a little sections called “What Do We Do At Moms Making Six Figures?“. This simply states that they sell consumer products, and that your role will be to “educate others in your community” about their products (sell to them, in other words).
So, no actual details of what those products actually are? You’d think that if the products were so great they would be bursting to tell us what they are, right?
There are also plenty of biographies of all the people who are already a member of Moms Making Six Figures. These all tell us about their lives and what it’s like being a stay at home mom. Yet there is nothing about what Moms Making Six Figures has actually shown them to do or how they make their money.
How to Tell if Something is a Scam
Whilst we can’t know for sure if something is a scam or not without trying it out, there are several telltale signs that a “make money online” product might be a scam. There are also some signs to look out for that might indicate if a product is genuine. For more information, please read my article about scams.
Now let’s assess Moms Making Six Figures against these criteria…
What factors would indicate that it is genuine?
- Does it sound realistic? – No. There is no mention of what the products they sell actually are, so it just sounds like a fantasy.
- Do they admit you’ll have to work hard? – No. I couldn’t see any mention of the amount of work involved in achieving success with this.
- Do they sound genuine? – Yes, to me they look like real people who are genuinely pleased with what they have achieved. However, it is all rather hyped up.
- Can you take a look inside? – No.
- Can you try it for free? – I’m not sure. There is a way to contact them, but whether or not that would lead to getting a free trial membership, I just don’t know. Since they don’t advertise a free trial, let’s assume it’s a no.
What factors would indicate that it is a scam?
- Does it sound too good to be true? – Yes. No offence meant to any single moms, but six figures sounds like a lot to earn when you’re simultaneously taking care of children.
- Do they say you’ll get rich quickly? – No, they don’t actually say you will get rich overnight.
- Are they secretive about how they make their money? – Yes. They just say they sell products, but they don’t actually say what products they sell. This is a really bad sign.
- Do they say it’s “never been seen before”? – No, they don’t claim this.
- Are the videos recorded by actors? – I don’t think so. They seem genuinely pleased with what they have achieved. They don’t come across as fake actors, although I can’t be totally certain about this.
- Do they claim it will require very little work? – No, they don’t actually state this. They are not claiming it is really easy.
