Answer
Dear Waqas,

This is a very interesting question.

I must confess, prior to your inquire I had never heard of Tiens International.

After checking out the company, I discovered it is not a traditional company offering a traditional job or career, rather it is offering an opportunity to own your own business via a process called "Multi-level marketing" [MLM].

There are many legitimate MLM companies such as:

- Amway
- Avon
- Tupperware

However, when I was 18 years old, I joined a company call "Equinox International" run by CEO Bill Gouldd that looked like an MLM, but, it was a pyramid scheme.

My dear friend be careful and choose wisely.
