Kim Madsen – FLP Top Earner
If you read my blog piece on MLM top earners from FLP, Eddy & Grace Chai, you will enjoy this article about FLP top earner Kim Madsen from Denmark. He has been with FLP (Forever Living Products) with 14 years. Kim earns around $95,800.00 a month in residual income, and he and Anja (his wife) have reached the Diamond Manager status.
Kim says that since joining FLP, he enjoys the fact that he can help someone else enjoy the time and financial freedom that he and his wife now does. Kim says he was introduced to FLP when a friend invited him to a coffee party. When he got there is when he realized he was sitting in the middle of a network marketing meeting.
It was actually Kim’s wife, Anja, who signed up with FLP so they could get some discounts on FLP products. Kim then decided that he was going to recruit some folks for his team so they could get more discounts on the products. That is actually what he did. Kim considers himself to be just a “normal” person, and he sees direct sales marketing as an unusual business for people like him.
After six years with FLP, Kim and Anja bought a wonderful-looking chateau, a boat, and a luxury vehicle. Simply put, Kim believes in the financial freedom. Like most top MLM earners, he sees relationship marketing as a fantastic opportunity for anyone. Kim feels that with FLP, he is marketing a dream.
With his newfound freedoms, Kim spends 50% of his time working with charitable organizations. He lives by the motto: “The more you give, the more you receive.” This is how life is.
Kim’s story began years ago. Kim grew up in an orphanage, but he had dreams and goals. As a result, Kim went to Uganda, the poorest country in the world, and he built an orphanage and a school. Wow, I am impressed!
Kim joined FLP in 1998. He purchased two starter kits for around $1,000USD. He was skeptical, but he kept an open mind. For the first month, he didn’t sell anything, because he spent most of his time building up his team. 18 days later, he was an active manager. Six days after that, he helped one of his recruits to become a manager. Three months later, Kim got his first car. Five months later, he got an even bigger car and was on the level 3 car incentive.
To this day, Kim has assisted 25 of his first-line team members become manager, which is how he got his Diamond Manager title. Today, he is one of the top direct selling marketers in the world. His team is made of people from over more than 20 countries and has earned more than $220 million. I love this saying from Kim (and I have said this on this blog): “If you do what you have always done, you get what you have always got. If you want your future to change, you have to change.”
When you compare FLP to other multilevel marketing businesses, Forever Living Products (FLP) is risk-free. There is no membership fee, no monthly fee, and no obligations to buy. What you do get is amazing, natural products and a remarkable business opportunity to having your own home-based business in which you can build long-term income. You will have wellness, security, and wealth.
FLP has been in the multilevel marketing industry since 1978, and the company has had the same CEO since its establishment. This is a rarity in the MLM sector. FLP is said to have more than 10 million distributors. It operates in more than 140 countries, and it generates over $2 billion annually. FLP and its partners are the biggest grower, manufacturer, and distributor of aloe vera products.
This means it is in charge of everything from the fields to the factory. FLP offers a line of wholesome health and wellness products for the skin, nutrition, weight management, personal care, and cosmetics. FLP wants to improve the way people around the world look and feel for the best!
FLP products are infused with 100% aloe vera and a lot of beneficial botanicals, delivering something unexpected like energy and vibrancy.

FLP product reviews not that bad. Most people are happy with the products, although some did find them a tad costly. Moreover, the drinks are said to not be too tasty. The products people found most favor with are the eye cream, shampoo, sunscreen, and the aloe vera lotion .There are some FLP complaints from family members of distributors who said that their relatives have been duped into believing that aloe vera is a cure-all.
There are also reports that while the skin and drink products say to be made with natural ingredients, in actuality, they contain some unnatural ingredients. I didn’t know this, but one comment about FLP products stated that there is no mention from FLP that if you digest the pulp of the aloe vera plant, you could get diarrhea.
As I stated earlier, it costs nothing to join FLP. You earn money from product sales, and there are bonuses when one of your customers decides to become a distributor and from those retail sales as well. You know, the same way every other multilevel marketing company works.
There have been a few legal issues with FLP. In 1997, FLP Japan was accused of committing tax evasion. Then, FLP executives sued the US for unauthorized disclosure of tax information. In 2015, a US district court ruled that the IRS gave false information about AVA (Aloe Vera of America) to the NTA (National Tax Agency Japan).
This is a violation of the tax treaty between the US and Japan. The IRS was found liable for disclosure of false information and awarded the plaintiffs damages. I had to refresh the page when I read this, because I couldn’t believe that somebody actually took on the IRS and won. Well, alright! I am so not mad at this!
In 2004, several claims made about FLP products were found to be in violation of the advertising laws in Hungary. FLP was fined approximately $280,000.00. In Uganda, the government has gotten a lot of complaints regarding the fact that patients are being led to believe that products from MLM companies can cure diseases.
Author Richard Bach alleged that FLP used his character, storyline, and copyrighted excerpts from his novel, “Jonathan Livingston Seagull.” He sued FLP for copyright and trademark infringements. The suit was satisfied through arbitration.
