I put a little money into National Safety Associates about the same time.
The MLM meetings are quite impressive the first time one attends. But each meeting is more or less the same--it got boring real quick. The meetings divide the world into two groups: winners and those who don't sign up.
Anyways, I peddled my water filters for a few months. Between the closing rate of about 50%, a couple of hours for each sale attempt, and mileage for my car, I wasn't even making minium wage. I could not recommend this side hustly to anyone.
The real money in MLM comes from the people who buy product and lose interest in moving it. But they are losers, right?
You seem to have figured out things quicker than I did.
But I like the connection between MLM and Trumpism. I had just lost my business and was wondering what to do next. I parked my common sense outside the door of my first NSA meeting. I knew it was too good to be true, but I ignored my intution. Lost a few thousand dollars.
It's not hard for me to see why many of us can fall for strange things.
I used to have an Amway rep make monthly deliveries to me. I do like some of their product. But I could see he was working for nothing,. But his goal was to convert me.
