and, more importantly, no one else in my downline was either. So, either all of these people who my upline had earlier referred to as “bright, ambitious people” were actually total losers along with myself, or the MLM system was flawed.
So I went online to do some research, and while I still can’t find much information about ACN, I studied companies with similar systems such as Amway.
And almost became physically sick.
PW it’s scary to think that after 10 years since being in MLM that you sometimes miss the meetings, the people, and the recruiting. To me, that speaks volumes of the deep hold MLMs have on people.
Janine what MLM were you involved with? You said that it was very cultish, sneaky, and pressure to attend seminars. It sounds like the Quixtar group my son is involved in.
DM you were in MLM 17 years? You talked about how the “heavy Hitters” got downlines to drain all their financial options and then would turn on these people saying that they weren’t trying hard enough to succeed.
It’s funny how the downlines are taught not to listen to “negitive”, but the uplines use that very tactic when others are not preforming as well as expected.
