    "Raise your own children" as if parents don't do that while not entangled in an MLM cult.

    The best description I've heard is to replace the word 'distributor' with the word 'customer'. You buy products from the company, you're paying a subscription fee every month in order to qualify for 'cashback' (the commission you make from downlines), the more you buy the cheaper it is, they give you over-valued incentives and prizes, you get a progressively higher discount the more other 'customers' you sign up. Those deals where you get $25 each of credit on Ubereats, or $100 each of free power if you sign a friend up to your power company, is a BETTER WAY OF MAKING MONEY.

    I was suckered in by Amway at a young age. Threw my inheritance at it. I cry about that regularly. My dad was in for 30 years, I went to the N21 speeches for years, from before I was old enough to even properly attend. I thought I'd be the youngest high level distributor. I regret it all. I want those years of my life back. I wish my inheritance had gone to something useful. I hate myself for it. I hate that I tried to sucker my friends into it too. Brb, gonna cry about how badly I fucked myself and my friends over for years.

    What I have been asked through linked and the couple have been talking to me and others too I have been in a meet with 1000 people who join this business. At first I didn’t want to do it but they convince me to do it and now I have an account in Amway and BWW which I brought the ticket and payed for the account for 180 or something and 50 for others. Idk what to do is it really scum cuz it looks so real to me when they explained it. What’s going on?

    So it's called a pyramid scheme or as it's also known, SOCIALISM, MARXISM and COMMUNISM! What do you think the "NEW DEAL" is? It's 100% a pyramid scheme! Social Security, medicare... Yep all PYRAMID SCHEMES! Let's see free money for no talent or work ethic! Yep, SOCIALISM/PYRAMID SCHEME, but I repeat myself!

    The Engineers and the Price System is a compilation of a series of papers, each of which mainly analyzes and criticizes the price system, planned obsolescence, and artificial scarcity. His position is that engineers, not workers, should overthrow capitalism. Are you sure we will be the same species by them? Because I hate this species!

    In Africa also tribes were fighting each othersand the captives were held as slaves and sold. There was alredy a big trade of slaves there with arabs. And they lost their humanity. We need not to forget the context of the time but now that we know better it is time to make amends and chnge the system. It was again a deed of the rich and the powerful who use the weaker for gheir own profits.

    This man is brilliant ! Literally says it all ! When I speak to someone who does the pyramid scheme, I feel like I’m speaking to a brick wall ! They are all literally brain washed. Just fake and not genuine. It’s hard to tell them to snap out of it. No thank you I do not want to quit my full time job and be part of your pyramid , selling your stupid protein shakes and coffee pretending that I have a deep background and education in health and nutrition! It’s all a cult! I have a REAL job where I save people’s lives! No offence to anyone who does MLM but it had to be said !

    эх, сколько я потратил в эти ставки, катал очень упорно, не менее 4 лет. бывали даже крупные заносы, но в результате когда я сравнил сколько завел и сколько вывел я мягко говоря был в шоке. я думал я не плохой ставочник, и чаще всего побеждал чем проигрывал, но по статистике минус. Похже все стало ясно, как бы вы супер не играли, вы при абсолютно любой ставке уже платите около 10% (это комиссионные буков), вы наверняка никогда на равнозначные события вроде четный-нечетный исход не встречали кф 2к2 почти всегда вы увидите 1.9 к 1.9 или что-то похожее. И эти проценты на дистанции играют большую роль, с 1000000 рублей ставок мы уже заплатили только комиссионных 100 000 руб.. По-этому для меня капперство не выгодное. Я лучше казяки поверчу, только не в 1хбет, там вроде бы их автоматы которые подкручивают, я выбираю из списка имеющих лицензию тут при тех же тратах намного более занятное провождение времени, и голову ломать не приходится)

    f anybody would like to get the real story about Network Marketing, I can shear a free ebook download with you. No companies or products are mentioned. It's about a man who joined over 100 Network Marketing companies, he joined their autoships, broke down their comp plans, it took him 2 years, every thing he learned he put into an ebook and gives it away free, the good the bad the ugly. You will get a good education on Network Marketing.
