Hi, I have to say first off

I have been receiving these emails and updates to the discussions here for quite some time now.
I have never written or commented before, however this particular topic of cult like behavior in MLM really had me inspired to write my thoughts on it all.

Without going into too much detail, I will say that I was involved with a company which thank God, or the universe or the law of attraction or just the law period…had me leave the organization before real trouble hit the fan.

I found that the owner/founder of this company was doing some very unethical things in my humble opinion. I have been a business owner and in the people industry since I was 19…and I am now 50…(so you can do the math!) lol that’s a long time and a lot of experience in business, business development and in a leadership position.

I never was the “boss” type of person so when I joined this company I was pretty shocked by the “direction” which the company owner would actually take his company, and business partners. Direction, would come in the form or “orders” and threats…abusive language and even verbal personal attacks on people in his organization who did not “take well” to his orders.

My first response to my own response as well:

A typical MLM’er will claim that any direct selling should be considered an MLM – which is a straw-man argument & standard operating procedure for them. They say this, along with the false Donald Trump quote, throw out Warren Buffet being pro-MLM, and of course, the “partnerships” they have with Microsoft, Google, etc – which are nothing more than they fact that they might use PCs at the home office or are listed on a vendor website (which is usually free & not any sort of contractual relationship at all).
The more they have to argue they are a legitimate business, the more they lose any sort of credibility.
