    Troy, what strikes me in the top 100 is that Wellness International Network isn't mentioned. Any reason for that?

    • http://troydooly.com Troy

      David,

      The list is compiled based on annual volume of sales.

  • http://www.Ardyss.biz Nicole

    Glad to see our company made the top 100 list since opening in American about 3 years ago. Can't wait to see where we finish this year after expanding to several new countries and new products on the way.

    Was also shocked to see some of the top 25 names as well.

    It is amazing to see how this industry has grown and more and more people are seeing that you can make a real income.

    Thanks for sharing the information.

    I was wondering why viridian energy wasn’t listed here? They did over 220 mil in 2011 and nearly double that for 2012

    • http://mlmhelpdesk.com troydooly

      Steve, we have covered almost all of the companies in the weekly news at one time or another.

      I have waited to cover the companies individually to see how things worked out in the first few years.

      Viridian is a great company with great leadership and I do have an editorial coming up soon. Which includes the Chairman.
