    Is MLM a cult ?

    Is doing MLM make you a cult member?

    Seems like people get all hyped up and excited....which is good when starting a new business.

    The problem is recruiting a downstream. (Family, friends, people at work).

    Some offers are great, but there's money, time, effort involved that is friction.

    Is MLM a cult? Do you know people that have ruined their lives or their immediate circle of people?

    Some MLMs ca be cult-like. Some MLM members dress alike, think alike, worship some leaders, recruit other members, have similar goals, give up life savings for the cause, etc.

    The only difference is that you are free to walk away.

    It can be, just like most things based on someone's beliefs.

    Religion, are all religions cults? Nope. They can be. They all have the potential to be bad cultures, it's up to the people involved that make them "good" or "bad".

    Once again, it's human nature that's at "fault".

    Is that really 'the way it is', or, is your perception/bias not serving you?

    I opt for the latter explanation, with regards to you at least...:judges:
