Friends! You’re in an MLM making extra money for your family, and that’s AWESOME! But it’s not for me, and here’s why:
Shortly after our first born came along I got pulled into an MLM business. I thought “I’m going to KILL IT.” Then I didn’t. I wasn’t lazy, I bought the books, I made the relationships, I believed in my products. What I didn’t account for was my move to a new town, a second pregnancy, and a lack of funds to keep it going. Not to mention the anxiety of doing parties in person!
While I’m not here to discourage or shame you, while I realize you’re just being a boss babe for your family. I encourage some of you to JUST BACK OFF with your approach! I get you feel pressured to make money, I get you want to make “connections.”
Those of you with your generic approaches, who can’t be bothered to change my name in a DM on Instagram, or who make me feel pressured, or make up a lie about how I’ve “shown you so much love” when I don’t even follow you, can KICK ROCKS!
For those of you doing it for the ACTUAL love of it, I thank you. You know who you are, and for those of you just DOING IT to MAKE A QUICK BUCK, preying on HASHTAGS and women with insecurties, well GET FUCKED!
As a mama with insecurities and anxiety to boot, it’s hard to say no, let alone politely. When you say I’ll want this someday…maybe I will, but NOT FROM YOU! But from that mama who gets me, who knows my struggle, who I KNOW isn’t preying on my struggle but can relate to it.
So THINK, think before you approach another PARENT based on HASHTAGS! THINK! Think about NOT being upset when they say NO. You don’t know their circumstances. Maybe $99.00 means their kids diapers this month. Maybe they’re not just being frugal and they just don’t have the money to invest.
You just DON’T KNOW! And IT DOESN’T MATTER! If they’re interested, they’ll flock and if not JUST LET THEM BE!
One pissed off mama who has been approached too inappropriately by one too many mamas who give MLM companies a bad name.
