Great tasting shakes, It is whatever you make it!

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I learned my passion to be an entrepreneur through Herbalife. The job is really whatever you choose to make it, so you can put as much work into or as little as you want.The BIGGEST suggestion is to do it as a side job until you are properly making money to run it as a full time job (if you so choose). I did NOT do that.. well, I quit my real job for other reasons, and just so happened to have Herbalife going on at the same time. It was not why I left my corporate job.I have nothing bad to say about Herbalife. Their products work if YOU do. I have terrible will power, so I didn't consistently drink the shakes to lose weight.They have a great system of nutrition clubs, free workouts, things like that to attract clients. I wouldn't jump straight into a club on your own, but who knows, if you feel like it would succeed, then go for it.The only thing about Herbalife is it really makes a difference who your coach is, and it really makes a difference in what YOU DO to push yourself forward. Personally, I got sick of being annoying to everyone I knew about Herbalife. It would have been different had I been properly using the products for my own results.. SO... RULE #1: Use the products and get your own results.Then do whatever you so choose!


Great people, great tasting shakes, people get great results, they help set a fire inside of you that YOU CAN DO ANYTHING


Hard to get going, easy to live in a fantasy world of what ifs, Just don't rush into the business side and work on yourself first

need better supervisors

everything is online, no one really helps, everything video based, unhelpful mgmt...unrealistic goals, no corporate support to distribute. no one really shows you how to set up website or promote.


flexible schedule

What people like
  • Feeling of personal appreciation
  • Clear sense of purpose
  • Ability to learn new things

Know who you're working for..

Fun place to work if you can get in and build your own clientele. If you have a genuine leader and mentor you can easily build your own profitable tea shop. Unfortunately, if you are under bad leadership you can loose a lot of money and gain nothing but life lessons from the experience.

Meeting people. I love to connect with new future customers and explain the product to them.

If you don't sell the product you don't make money! Simple as that. The product is a great product that I have been using since 1985 and it works! I consume it and there for being an independent associates, I am able to purchase the product with a discount.

Awesome company

I really love Herbalife as a company. However you are your own boss and it your own business so you will not receive a normal or regular paycheck like you do working for someone else. If you expect to not receive a paycheck then you will not be disappointed. That being said you have the potential to make a lot of money but you have to be willing to put in the work in order to do so.

Productively positive work environment!

Positive Active Lifestyle. Our competition on a personal level is only with whom we were yesterday, and so each new day, we spend quality time on personal development. Striving to better than what we ourselves were yesterday by only 1 percent!


Educating the consumer upon nutritional value of product!

Hard work

When you work for Herbalife, you’re considered an independent distributor, so if you don’t sell product then you don’t make any money. It’s a hard company but it’s worth it if you are good at selling product

You have to put in the time, and effort. It extends your comfort zone, and forces to you attempt new things to achieve success. Recommend for those who have a large community.

Love this Company

I was doing Herbalife for losing weight til I saw the lifestyle I can have. I’m able to work from home anywhere even on vacations. Don’t think this place can get you fancy cars, houses, the “Luxury life”. BUT if you work hard you can reach to your goals. I have seen people making great money and still live in apartments, (you’ll think that with that money should get a house) guys they are happy and goals can’t come with a flip of a switch. We work hard but happy when we do. Keep up with good work you will be rewarded. Herbalife makes sure they take good care of us. You want a great career to last this is the best I have no negative words about Herbalife I took me 4 years to realize I could have this life long time ago. DONT JUDGE TIL YOU TRY
