MLM’s convince people to use personal friendships and relationships via “networking” to work for them and sell. The more they sell the more the person makes umm. Friends and family or prospects and home turf is the marketable area.
On the greeting card site they have a section on personal development here us one quote right from their site
You’ll also learn about “I am” statements. Invite your organization to do the same. Your “I am” statements are your dreams, goals, and desires, all stated in the present. For example, if you’ve always dreamed of a six-figure income, you would create an “I am” statements that says, “I am earning a six-figure income and loving it!” These are simple but powerful statements that help you reach your goals and stay focused on your dreams.
EST- uses getting it – got it
XYZ site uses I am
The Moonies chanted lines over and over while beating tambourines, used deceptive recruiting practices to get someone to join and then alienated them from friends and family to help convince them to stay.
The XYZ MLM recruits with promises of great wealth, their literature, suggested readings, and training materials keep the recruit hooked.
“Continually check the blog and website, watch SOC TV and SOC Lifestyles and sign up for the emails. Be a part of your upline, and go to any Treat ‘em Right or Super Saturday you are able to. Make it your responsibility to stay connected with your sponsor.” Another quote from their site.
They then convince peeps that if your not selling, working for the person then you are not worth their time because you will bring them down with negative thoughts. Alienation!
The last communication from him:
But rest assured any grievances you have toward me will be alleviated soon enough
Seems he is coming to CA to handle the car sale, get his package, and kiss our arses goodbye.
I hope he find success, finds all the wealth he believes is his due. Someday maybe he will realize that a woman that goes to work every day despite her physical limitations and constant pain in order to maintain a household and takes care of her partner is stronger and more determined than the MLM gurus. That just maybe “Jane” getting up and doing everything “Jane” can do to keep moving despite having multiple sclerosis means something.
This whole thing has really caused a lot of stress in this household. I guess if we are not healthy enough to go out and gain all that wealth we are not worthy.
Oh yeah Wealth and Health – I get it – really I do.
Dear Godson I hope that someday you do too.
