Give up on the band wagon of saying bad things to pre programmed people about their MLM

It won’t work. Just ask questions and be supportive in other ways. I have moved to a really nice small town in CT. One of the clubs here is full of MLMer’s. They give me referrals for my spa, but they ask for them in return. Some of them won’t accept anything I give them in return except referrals so I give up trying to give back.

I just stood up for myself and I said “I will support your local charity blog, but I will not support any MLM or network marketing group period.” So after that, I was afraid that I wouldn’t get any more from this one charity group, but I was wrong!:) The charity is winning over and I did hear from these women again. So they still have some of their brains left:)

This is just one example and I have many more! I just wanted to tell you something positive to look forward to. I just tell these ladies that I think their charity does good work and they turn all into mush and that I support their charity. They just want to feel appreciated and be given a sense of purpose in life. That is what I think is going on in my town. Maybe this will give you ideas for helping out your close ones.

I have a very good friend in Market America

and since we live in a pretty small town, I also know about five others who have joined (so far). Almost everyone who has joined are people who can least afford to lose money, including my friend. For over a year I’ve tried, gently and by asking questions, and sometimes not very gently, to point out that this may not be the greatest thing since sliced bread. It’s led to nothing except hurt feelings, so after the last time I’ve given up. However, since hope springs eternal, is there anything you can tell me about Market America being “one of the worst” that I can pass along to her should she begin to question for herself?

I appreciate your help – I appreciate all of you – this is a wonderful blog, and someday I hope my friend belongs to it!
