Why I hate MLM and Direct Sales

Dear WAHFAQ, How on earth can you sing the praises of MLM and Direct Sales companies? They’re nothing but scams! I have lost so much money with them it isn’t funny. What is wrong with you?

Or maybe they didn’t really explain to you what kind of time commitment was required to run your own business? Or maybe you didn’t do your research enough and got swept up into a company that was new, or had founders that went bankrupt? Whatever it is, I am sorry for your Read More…
