    Ever been pitched MLM by a relative?

    I have felt what it's like to get pitched an MLM by a relative
    and trust me it's not a good feeling.

    Have you ever been through that?

    Yup, my brother showed me Amway when I was about 19. I thought it looked like a good idea, I joined and sold some products and made some extra cash which was good drinking money at Uni. Thanks bro!

    I think he was asking a serious question.

    It's obvious you would try to turn it into some sort of sadistic joke.

    Not surprising at all!

    How was it not a good feeling? Please elaborate.

    He asked if he had ever been pitched MLM by a relative, I gave a serious and honest answer with my experience.

    That is part of MLM cult prospecting 101. It is a sick and gross feeling when they are so ramped up about something and they you aren't drinking the proverbial Koolaid. It's always like $295 too that you don't have. They often ruin family dinners and holiday gatherings.ing1:

    I think we all have been there. And the grandma usually supports the grandson or something like that and there's always a bad taste in their mouths after never seeing the initial buy-in back.

    If there's a "buy-in" then it's probably not a legitimate MLM, it's probably a pyramid scheme.

    They always disguise it as "startup tools" or "promo items" or "startup kit".

    Which, in legitimate opportunities, are low cost and refundable if you decide not to pursue the opportunity.

    In my perspective, many IBOs are taught to blame themselves for failure and end up not seeking refunds.

    Rubbish. Most people who quit don't learn anything at all because they don't bother to; and most who quit don't even put an order in. You're so full of shit you'll say anything to mislead people.

    Seems fairly common in Amway and some others.

    You're full of it. You're the one who says those who fail didn't learn the skills. Isn't that blaming the person??

    But you'll say anything to mislead people apparently.

    How are they taught this? Most IBOs never even attend a single meeting or buy any audio materials or books.

    Is it some kind of telepathic transfer via SA8? Maybe using Amway's Qi technology?

    Yes I do blame the new IBO for not learning the skills, unlike your post where you're trying to put the blame on his upline for teaching them to feel bad and not claim a refund which is utter bullshit. Do you have any evidence this is widespread?

    If people take the same attitude as you, then that is evidence that people are taught that failure is their own fault.

    You're being obtuse on purpose. When you talk about IBO income, you disregard the IBOs who do nothing. When talking about tools, you want to include the entire IBO population to make it seem like only a few IBOs use tools.
