No, MLMs are mostly about recruiting new members into a “downline”

that supposedly pays residue income on either people they recruit (a true pyramid) or on whatever sales they generate (which is usually nothing more than a standing order for personal use or over-use).

They claim to have a “sales” component, but this is usually downplayed considerably.

Direct selling – what I do for my sales organization, is totally and completely different, since I don’t recruit, I get paid a salary (plus benefits) and get paid commissions on all business that I generate for the company. This is legitimate selling, not the BS you find in MLM organizations (where you are an IBO – independent business owner, even though the onerous rules and other limitations put on the IBO by the parent organization really eliminates any sense that a person is able to run their own business).
