MLM is lame. When I was schooling my China classmate asked me to join his company for a free 'dinner'. He told me his boss wants to recruit part timers, esp students for extra income. This friend on that day was dressed in coat to school btw required by MLM.
As a student I thought hmm why not. Went there, he treat me to a drink at a downstairs coffeeshop. Then came the time his so called 'boss' who was a former convict (!) bashfully avoided eye contact with a low lvled MLM newbie and went on with his chats. Unknown to him, I've been there down that with my family's company, we incorporated TCS/CH U stars to sell it then at that. So I've been there done that at a young age.
I went into a 'room' the so called MLM top liner, another Chinaguy student briefted me, telling me my life is useless, no aim working for companies, I should be my ownboss, join them, he earns 30k a month. Then he pushed the application form to me, and that cost me 150SGD! Then kept bugging me to get their 'magnetic pillow' costing 4.5K, saying I've to be fillial to my parents. If I get it now I would straight jumped to bronze medal or whatever. And that he won't want me to sell and not knowing their products etc. Then recommended me some lame wrist magnet, etc, all in all totalling 9.5k, keep asking me if I can't afford then how much I have in my bank, that I should tell him so he can sell something to me.
What a bunch of phoney! Nonetheless, the company went bust in a few mths. So there, MLM
just wants your $. I know because I've been indirectly involved and witnessed 4 of them.
