Cisse represented Ivory Coast at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in the men’s 80 kg. He won the gold medal and gave to Ivory Coast the first ever Olympic title for the country. He is extremely admired in Ivory Coast and the surrounding countries.
That sponsorship is yet another feather in QNET’s cap and shows again the commitment of the direct selling company to sports values: focus, hard work and pushing oneself to the limits.
That partnership comes in addition to QNET’s role as the Official Direct Selling Partner of Manchester City Football Club which allowed QNET to link the excitement of football and the passion of the fans to the thrill of direct selling and the drive of QNET’s Independent Representatives. QNET’s commitment to Cisse is the same: endorse a young dedicated talent that is bent on seeing his dreams become a reality.
“I am really thrilled to join the QNET family, a dynamic company that caters to everyone who wants to embrace new challenges. This is really important to me as I worked so hard to become the first Ivorian to win the gold Olympic medal for my country.
My dream is that all young Africans understand that nothing can be achieved without enthusiasm and hard work”,
said Cisse, who decided to practice taekwondo at the age of 6.
“We are really happy to welcome Cheick Cisse as our ambassador. At QNET, we believe that, like in sports, direct selling allows you to rise to your greatest heights only through hard work and determination.
Cheick Cisse is an example of that same belief for Africa showing us that determination can lead to the greatest victories. The passion that we have for direct selling can be likened to Cisse’s emotions when he heard the Ivorian anthem sung for him in Rio last year”
said QNET Chief Executive Officer Trevor Kuna.

The success of Total Life Changes National Directors, husband and wife duo Stephen Alan and Victoria Kimuyu is testimony to the power of determination and positive thinking.
No achievement in the multi-level marketing industry comes without total commitment to the process, even in the face of considerable initial challenges. Although it only took Victoria two years to reach an income level of roughly $12,000 per month with TLC, those two years were a long and difficult road for the couple.
“Although we had success with retailing the products online, I wanted more,” Victoria recalls. “And to get more I needed to build a team. I struggled for all of 2016. We had built a system that not only retailed the tea for us, it also generated new leads every day.
And I still struggled with getting the right people on board that would stick. I couldn’t quite figure out why it wasn’t working.” Even during this period of hardship, the seeds of their eventual success were in place. Stephen was an experienced online marketer, with a passion for TLC products like Iaso® Tea and NutraBurst® that the couple themselves used at home.
“As Stephen once told me, this is a numbers game, it’s about patience and persistence,” says Kimuyu. “You can’t just love the products and the comp plan, you have to love the hustle and the work too if you want the income.”
She credits TLC’s products with helping them feel their best and TLC’s “open-armed” culture for helping them to stick it out. Thanks to the influence of National Directors Ray and Deatra Davis, Victoria realized that she wanted to attract potential leaders rather than simple followers, the better to build a team that would duplicate “like crazy” and open new markets.
The strategy paid off. With hundreds of team members in the United States, United Kingdom and, more recently, in the exploding South African market, Stephen and Victoria have helped break numerous Executive and National Directors, and have seen their own fortunes rise accordingly.
“TLC has allowed me to meet and get to know families with the same vision and mindset of growth and mutual empowerment,” says Victoria. “As I tell my team all the time, I’m so grateful I get to do this, that I get the opportunity to have a team huddle, to do one-on-ones. I don’t take it for granted because I know my struggle. I know what I’ve overcome and I just want to show others what’s possible.”

According to an article in – GoKunming- Southwest China’s largest and best English-language website – dozens of Pyramid leaders have been arrested.
“The headlines have been loud and slightly hysterical recently. The cover story of popular magazine Caixin features the gaping jaws of a great white and the words “Man Eaters” .
It turns out this sort of hyperbole is not about imminent shark attacks, but instead concerns the predatory pyramid schemes — sweeping across the country and bilking millions out of their hard-earned money.
Beijing recently stepped in after police uncovered scam after scam in nearly every corner of the country.
Marshaling the combined bureaucratic power of the ministries of Labor, Education, Commerce and Public Security, the ‘National Crackdown on Multi-Level Marketing Schemes’ is effective now and runs until November 15.
Pyramid schemes designed to defraud or swindle people out of money have been against the law in China since the 1990s. They were officially criminalized following the discovery of a string of large-scale operations in 2009. Since then, similar news stories sporadically appeared and then public interest would quickly ebb.
However, over the past several weeks, four deaths circumstantially linked to separate MLMs operating in Tianjin and Shanxi came to light. The public exploded in outrage on social media, a combined reaction that may have spurred Beijing into action. Now, a November 15 report released by the government declares that the new campaign’s overall goal is to “severely punish pyramid scammers and […] establish a long-term way to deal with such scams”.
Far more pyramid schemes than those connected to mysterious deaths are being uncovered on an almost daily basis. Their sheer number and diversity have led to a string of public service announcements in China designed to educate people how to identify fraudulent operations. A simplified MLM, according to Wikipedia’s definition, is:
…a business model that recruits members via a promise of payments or services for enrolling others into the scheme, rather than supplying investments or sale of products or services. As recruiting multiplies, recruiting becomes quickly impossible, and most members are unable to profit; as such, pyramid schemes are unsustainable and often illegal.
Chinese authorities have so far identified two overarching scam strategies which fit the Wikipedia definition but expand and evolve it as well. In what Chinese authorities now refer to as the ‘northern’ version, operators often follow a model where people invest in a shell company and then are encouraged with rewards to use their “interpersonal networks” and “direct marketing strategies” to recruit others. Meanwhile, the ‘southern’ model involves forced coercion, threats of violence and what the Chinese press has labeled “brainwashing techniques”.
Here in Yunnan, the largest pyramid scheme broken up by police this year involved more than 1,000 people. Interested investors could join by purchasing single shares in a company purportedly selling Yunnan specialities such as jade and flowers. They were charged 3,800 yuan for each share, with a maximum buy-in of 29. Buyers were then encouraged to recruit 29 new members.
In reality, the company — despite “field trips” to government offices in Kunming meant to prove legitimacy — sold nothing. All the employees were too busy searching for new recruits, encouraged by promises of earning extra commissions from each signee. Simple math shows that if everyone involved successfully enlisted 29 new people, company investors would number an absurd 17 billion after only seven rounds of recruitment.
In the end, no one in Yunnan except the scheme’s originators made any money before the police intervened and arrested dozens of suspects. And this brings everything back to the new nationwide crackdown, which must attempt to answer the question: Who is legally prosecutable in these cases? Only the original architects, or also those who actively worked to — unwittingly or not — defraud others? In Kunming, the latter would mean 1,000 defendants in a single case. Across China, well, the numbers are mind boggling.”
