Herbalife Income Disclosure Statement

Herbalife calls their income disclosure statement the “Average Gross Compensation”, so it is a bit harder to find. Based on the last available information provided by the company (2014), you can see that ~90% of Herbalife distributors made less than $2,500 for the entire year (keep in mind this is not profit so you have to subtract your costs from this amount) with over 70% making less than $300.
