HerbalifeCon Goes Off Without A Bill Ackman-Shaped Hitch

Apparently Woodstock for the diet shakes 'n supplements industry was a success.

HLF swag: A real thing.

While some of you (you know who you are) were spending the weekend in San Diego, some 25,000 hit the road for sunny St. Louis for Herbalife’s annual sales convention—Mound City’s second-most popular con after the Church of God in Christ’s Holy Convocation. It all sounds very, uh, convention-y.

Billed as an “Extravaganza,” the event was expected to draw an estimated 25,000 people — most of them independent distributors from around the country — to hear motivational speeches, network and participate in sales seminars…Another “Future Millionaire” is Antwoine Love, 39, of Dalton, Ga., a father of 14 children with a 15th on the way. Love said he got involved with selling Herbalife products full-time a month ago, after having a career “working with music.” Selling Herbalife products helps him assist people with their medical problems, he said. Though Love has not made a significant profit selling Herbalife and has yet to recruit a downseller, “the guy who got me into this makes $7,000 a month,” Love said….

“This is how I eat,” Love said.

Herbalife Doesn't Think That It's Exaggerating At All When It Says Bill Ackman Is The Antichrist

The hedge fund manager and the diet shakes 'n supplements company are still not yet seeing eye to eye.

The CEO diet shake and supplement purveyors saw his compensation drop 35%.

How Should Bill Ackman And Carl Icahn Settle This Thing Once And For All?

When Mark Hughs founded a multi-level marketing company called Herbalife in 1980, he probably thought it had the power to do a lot of things. Help people lose weight. Makes others rich. Shake up the diet industry. What he mostly likely did not expect, however, was that his li'l company that could would reignite a feud between two billionaires that would devolve into a flurry of press releases quibbling over who was dying to be friends with whom, shouting matches on live TV, and, we predict, someone telling someone else he has a right mind to "Rip the eyes out of your head and piss into your dead skull! You messed with the wrong hedge fund manager!"
