I’ve been asked to participate in the Vemma Verve energy drink business venture by few of my friends, and one of my buddies Tadas Tursa has been with the company for couple of years now and he talks about Vemma verve energy drink all the time.
This is the most comprehensive article on the web written about the Vemma verve energy drink, so sit tight and read and decide it for yourself!
If you check his blog, you can see he personally represents Vemma and talks about the nutritional value and business opportunity of the product in his content as well. He represents and quotes himself as a happy employee of this brand.
If you don’t know much about the company I’m talking about, it’s a Scotland based company that sells healthy nutritional energy drink alternatives. The products are described as highly health conscious and the best choice for all your energy stimulation requirements. The brand ambassadors and the people who are involved with this company thoroughly resist consuming any other energy drink and criticising every other product which falls to this category as big No No’s for young adults…
Now I’m not an expert on energy drinks and I personally do not use any of the energy drinks which are available all over the market. Coffee has been my number one choice and it always gears me up for long day or to do a 10km run just after a hard day of work. If you really need some momentum and energy to stimulate your highest alertness, I would only recommend the Guarana product which is a natural ingredient found from the Amazon jungle. You can easily buy 90 capsules under 10 bucks, which is enough for three months. **Do your own research and only take if you really need some boost to get your things done.
Now let’s get to the talk about the Vemma business my friends were so passionate about. The company has been created some success by investing a lot of money and creating some highly influential brand ambassadors who display the rich kid lifestyle. They talk and show what is possible from this business and how you can easily get started form home and work your way up just in few months. The most exciting thing they present is that, they say you can work hard for a couple of years and live from the passive income you generate. Sounds very good right!
When I look at the products and their business strategy, I can firmly say that Vemma isn’t your run-of-the-mill soft drink company which you want to invest your valuable young life. The brand ambassadors always talks about freedom business and how you don’t have to work for others. Seriously is that what’s happening here? The video which was published below was taken off by them as this article use dot get thousands of people reading it every week…. So I brought in a new video you can see next to this one..
This business is just trying to increase their sales representatives who get paid a commission for their hard work. And I doubt if they would continue paying the commission when they get a decent amount of people addicted to this drink.
What I see here is “Work your ass off to build someone else’s company and wait till they pay you the commission” or “Be a follower of a new hyper market product”
In my core business which I talk mostly on this blog, about building online personal and business platforms, I always try to encourage people to build their own website/blog on their own hosting service. Some prefer having their profiles on Facebook, LinkedIn or other blogging platform such as WordPress.com or Blogger, which are not self hosted. Keep in mind that you do not own the platforms which you publish the content and those services can anytime delete your accounts or ban it? Same can happen with your hard work which you put down to build your Vemma business. You can work so hard to increase the product awareness and get more and more people to Signup to buy the energy drinks, but remember you are not building your own legacy here.
It would have been way better if you work that low-income initial period trying to market Verve verve energy drinks thinking they will help you survive in future, on something you can learn to build or become an expert in a chosen field. The world needs people who can help others, has useful solutions and services to grow the mankind.
I’m not trying to be rude, but inspiring people to contract other people to buy more energy drinks, because that’s how you can make a living is a very limiting belief. Especially as it’s not a necessity product humans need to function at their peak performance. If you want to know some of the best techniques to live a truly healthy life, I would advise you to read the “4 Hour Chef”, “4 Hour Body” and then “4 Hour Work Week” to live healthy, cook like a pro and build a business which can support your life and start living the deferred life from the moment you created a business of your own.
When you do your research about the above discussed company, you can see they have a hell lot of negative comments all over the internet. Some might argue that’s for their publicity and I can assume there is a certain truth about that. However as a wise human, you should be able to decide what’s true and what’s not.
Vemma Verve Energy Drink Scam Exposed
The online news feed says that “The Company has undergone investigation and has been attacked by many of its former employees and experts for being a pyramid scheme, sucking eager investors’ dry of money and benefiting a few choice individuals.”
The most sad part of this business is not only people continue to invest money to buy a starter pack, but their precious time to market this products and sign up their other friends to do the same. All the high-flying videos are all attractive and give you the momentum to get started with this business, but remember this is definitely not a career you can be proud one day and talk with other successful home based business owners.
Is Vemma Verve a Viable Business Opportunity?
The main poblem my friends does not see is, this business lacks sustainability and a personal business model which the brand representatives always talks about as freedom business. **Freedom comes from within and not from building someone else’s business and trying to get a commission for what you have marketed. If this is freedom for you please go ahead and work hard and you will get hard works payback in few months or years.
Vemma Verve Business Payback (ROI)
Depending on how hard you work, you can apply the drug dealer’s business model and you may be lucky to enjoy the return on your investment. Think about it, is this the future you want to create? Tell someone “I do Vemma Business” or would you be more comfortable to tell I run my own business providing value directly to my dearest customers and I decide how much I charge for my work? This is a mindset I have implemented and hope you guys would want to read it.
Why People like Vemma Business model?
I remind my friends to think more, unless you are just doing this marketing work while you are at University to get some cash flow and share the belonging needs by satisfying one of the human needs Abraham Maslow has pointed out by saying “we all drink the same energy drinks so we all party together” 😉
Further explaining about the said business model, let’s say this isn’t a bad business idea to get involved or a scam as the online sources tells. But have you identified your opportunity cost? What you are losing by investing on this business? It’s your precious time! The most valuable commodity you have to build your own freedom business… the most needed resource to become an expert.
There are some great skills this company helps their employees to acquire and that’s the networking opportunities and to build a solid direct marketing skill set. I definitely agree on that and especially my friend has gained some awesome sociable skills and I would love to see him investing more of this time on building his own brand through his blog.
Media on Vemma Business
If you want to know why I’m telling you this, you can read the extensive negative press that this company has been getting. Also I came across these great words some other writer has pointed out for all product representatives. The writer asks “Do you honestly think that having “Vemma: Soft Drink Investor and Pyramid Scheme Defender” will look promising on your résumé?
He further writes describing “There is a difference between risk and irresponsibility. The association with this covert get-rich-quick scam plus the possible economic risk is overwhelmingly obvious to me. It should be for you as well.”
It’s a great message and if that’s not enough you should see below to know what more the person has written.
How Vemma Verve attracts Sales Reps?
Vemma travels the country and inspires the average Joe by emphasizing the success stories of people who make thousands of dollars a week, drive BMWs, and dress like they walked out of a Ralph Lauren catalog — all from selling a drink.
Starstruck college kids, you forget something: These are choice people. Sure, people like this may exist within the franchise. But do you really think that will be you?
What you should do about your Future?
Agreeing with his message I also think, your energy and time can be better spent with your own business or work with a market leader with a consistent pay check until you find your Muse. If you read the “The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated)” you can get help on that and also I would like to recommend you the “The $100 Startup: Fire Your Boss, Do What You Love and Work Better to Live More” to gain some good understanding of how to build a micro business which is much sustainable.
Remember this is not a solution for your terrible job which pays you a national minimum wage or a not having a great lifestyle as a hustler in modern society until you graduate and find something better.

The world out of college is very competitive, so you may start to build a business step by step which you can offer some services to others or find a product like Tim Ferris did to create a Muse which paid him to retire early in his 30’s. This is the success story Tim describes on “4Hour Work Week” and he shows you how to find out a sustainable business for yourself.
After all said my message is to my friends and who ever thinks Vemma as their solution for freedom business is, wake up, work hard to build a skill set you can offer others and try to create your own product (Muse).
Dreaming big and striving for big buck is always attractive and I personally love it but know the difference between savvy risk and economic irresponsibility.
Bringing up a quote from another writer which inspired me, “The smart man will know when to bet big and win it all. The intelligent man will know when to walk away from a bad idea.
