Yes, because he told me and because he was the head of the "chapter" or whatever I went to that had over 100 people under him doing the same thing. He also went to all the super exclusive secret meetings with higher ups in the company, which is apparently a big deal.

Hounding people and harassing them to get them to signup for something isn't for me.

my new rule is that any time I see a link to "live project training": No Thanx.

On the 4th of July, I received one of the hardest fucking MLM sales pitches I've ever heard. I have a younger family member who became involved with an MLM company about 2 years ago. I must admit, he's doing well with it. But he's become brain-washed into thinking that MLM is the only way to be self-employed. I actually have my own Business Consulting Firm, so I have my own business. He knows about my business, but get this! He tells me: "You might have your own business, but the only way to be truly independent is by getting involved with the opportunity I'm offering you." Keep in mind that my business makes more in a month than he makes in a year. He seems to have fallen into the trap of thinking that MLM is the only way to get rich. People have been getting rich long before MLM and will continue to get rich long after it.

W T F ? He isn't independent, he is working for an organization.

A couple of experience with this: Many moons ago a guy who commuted on the same train as I did hit my up about some Amway opportunity. Basically he said I could make enough money to stop commuting everyday. I pointed out that we ride the same train together everyday but that didn't deter his pitch. Finally I accepted some sales material to shut him up. Over the next couple of days, dude was on me to go to meetings, etc. I handed him back the unread brochures the next time I saw him and he was butt hurt, like really personally hurt! Creepy. I started to ride further back on the train to aviod him. More recently a friend/ex-coworker approached me about this and I knew the only way to nip this in the bud was to be direct but not harsh, after all, we were friends. Anyway, after emails and phone calls and happy hours, I just told her to knock it off already, it was ruining happy hour, for cryin' out loud! I wasn't mean, I just said it was enough already. Haven't spoke to her since. What is it about the cult like dedication? They seem to take rejection personally not professionally.

Generally, people are trying to make THEMSELVES money. When someone starts talking about making YOU money, they're bullshitting you. Pretty simple.
