Cognigen is much more of a business opportunity style format. Cognigen been in business since 1992, allow you to build a sales organization within their business. It's nice to know that they have been in business so long, since there have been quite a few players in Telcom that have come and gone.
Cognigen definitely helps people from a huge variety of backgrounds to earn stable, steady paychecks, and is a business that offers products and services that people need and use everyday, for less.
The prices that the Cognigen affiliate program offers for phone cards and phone products really are some of the best in the industry, and 100% of Cognigen affiliates/agents either make money or break even, because there is no up-front investment to join, so there's really no cost involved in getting started. You can spend money getting Cognigen branded business cards and buying your own service through them, but if you're going to build a business working with Cognigen, you'll need those things anyway.
