The general thought and notion of the Swede is for them to be reserved, quiet and maybe stick to themselves more then other more outspoken and spontaneous populations.
Is this really a good environment for a multi level marketing business to thrive and for its representatives to earn not only additional income but considerable salaries?
Well, that is not the truth about the Swede, so Yes.
Sweden is a great market for networking and MLM business.
The facts paints a completely different picture.

The general conception is that this type of business is only for the young and technology savvy individuals … The largest growing age segment on Facebook is the 60+. That means that all these baby-boomers, who are set to control the global markets over the next 20 years, are now connecting on Facebook. The marketers and companies who tap into that "network" will have a large potential lead pool.
With the changing population of participants in the online communities and with the statistics above, we show Sweden to be a fruitful direct selling market. If you know someone or have connections on the Swedish market. Go for it!
