more independent sellers, each profiting from the people up the line. the biggest m-l-m's flood downtown salt lake city with thousands of visitors for their annual conventions. its the arena where the utah jazz play and music stars perform. its also the mecca of multi-level marketing conventions. if its august its usana, september- doterra, october-nu-skin, each attracting more than 10 thousand visitors to salt lake city. the rock stars here are buttoned up utah business executive wentz, ceo of vitamin giant usana. dave wentz, ceo, usana: "we can be proud of our past. but we can also look at now and say, 'wow.' outside the arena...many of us see the signs usana, young living, do terra, nuskin, morinda. we wonder what they are...how they make enough money for the office towers and sponsorships. they are multi-level marketers. selling products person to person, though it's hardly a mom and pop business in utah. case in point...this convention for usana. dan macuga, chief communications officer, usana : "there's over 10,000 people this year so it's one of our biggest years and they are individual business owners, but really you think of
company here and we have over a thousand employees right here in salt lake. usana and nuskin are on the stock exchange... usana brought in 890 million dollars last year. anti aging products company nuskin, with this giant new headquarters in provo, reported revenue over two billion dollars. the industry big enough to exercise clout in utah politics. us congressman jason chaffetz got his career start at nu-skin...and now nuskin is fueling his aspirations in the u-s house of representatives. chaffetz has a political action committee or pac called budget hawks dot com. in 2014 chaffetz spent 121 thousand dollars from the fund. some went to colleagues, a lot to the republican party, some to travel and fundraising costs. the two biggest donors...nu skin and essential oils seller doterra. rep. jason chaffetz, utah: "doterra, is a special organization. utah's big mlms have been generous to the republican and democratic parties. congresswoman mia love endorses doterra wholeheartedly. rep. mia love, utah: everyone in my family loves the oils." doterra, nuskin, and

about $5000 a week. but for every mila zeng, there are hundreds of distributors earning nothing or next to nothing. if the companies are right...most aren't trying to earn anything. the question...how many people come close to losing everything? people like nicole lopez. nicole lopez, springville resident: "guess what? i'm still paying that debt, we're ten years later i'm still paying it." ed ad lib weather tease on set coming up -- updates on
