Now at the end of 2008 the same 4 shares of stock were valued at only a .01% gain on the original investment. That was due to the recession of 2009!
At the end of 2009, the stock came back! I got my money back and a little more… an exciting bounce back 149% return on investment!
Now it’s the Network Marketing Company’s turn.
