The 5LINX Business Opportunity


5LINX was originally known as a telecommunications company.  It was founded in 2001 and many people already compared it to the ACN company due to the fact that it was in the MLM telecommunications industry as well.  After a few years, it was noticed that 5LINX grew at a rapid pace passing many MLM startups that were founded within those 5 years.  As a result 5LINX made the Inc 500 list for the fastest growing companies from year 2006 to 2009.

However, during that time high ranking representatives (Regional Vice Presidents and Senior Vice Presidents such as Andre Maronian and Steve and Pasha Carter) from ACN Inc. took their teams and transferred over to join 5LINX.  This contributed to 5LINX growth.    This growth they had attracted more prospects to their company over time.
