I think anyone can succeed with any type of mlm/network marketing company. The key is being able to differentiate yourself. You have to be able to provide people value and come across as a real, genuine person. Empower is a good company, and the reason many people fail is because the join an upline that does not provide them any coaching or support or they just give up too quickly after not seeing any immediate results. This business take a lot of perseverance, testing, and pushing through the barriers. If you can withstand the initial barrage and keep working and adjusting, you will see success. I've seen it myself with some of my clients.
