    I don’t know how much of a pyramid scheme prepaid legal insurance is but a buddy of mine got into it about 20 years ago and tried with all his might to get me involved and I was just to turned off by the idea.. 20 years later he is a millionaire. The company buys him a new BMW every two years and sends him on multiple all expense vacations per year. It has certainly worked out in his favor

    Yes. As someone who used to work at an accounting firm who had an MLM client, this is consistent with my experience.

    I trust that she is up speed and in compliance with the state and federal regulatory minefield surrounding selling a franchise.

    So I have a former coworker who is a decent guy, but got mixed in to the Shakeology scene.

    It started easy enough as he invited me to join a "Mens Group" where it was about accountability and losing weight. I was part of the biggest loser group here, so I declined and wished him the best. Fast forward to a year later, and he is posting novels on instagram. He is using social media to drive his shakeology business. The disappointing part, is I posted about something with my gf, who used to work with him as well. So he sends her a request to follow her on instagram. She asks me about it and I say sure do it, he is harmless but be careful he will try and pitch you his MLM.

    She accepts and follows him back, and a day later he sends her this copy and paste intro message saying he is so flattered she followed him, and if he may be bold, would she let him know how she found his account? She shows it to me, and I laugh as he apparently forgot he requested to follow her the day before.

    She rolls her eyes and blocks his account.

    The funniest thing about his posts are he takes pics of himself and he travels for work. So he is in these random cities taking pics of himself in hotel gyms sweating profusely using the iphone timer. I can't imagine how many photos he takes until he gets the right one.

    I deleted my facebook over a year ago and honestly, one of the biggest perks has been not having to see all of this nonsense.

    Monat (the $350 million per quarter chick) is one of the worst. They have a plethora of lawsuits in flight against them right now because their snakeoil chemically burned people's scalps.

    I had to quit CrossFit because of these people. The gym became inundated with Monat salespeople. I can’t imagine me or my wife being one of those pushy assholes. Not to mention the lack of integrity where these people are at their real job peddling a side-business across social media.

    Obviously some side-money does help your average American stay afloat, but these women are pushing lies to other women in effort to essentially not have to do any work or stand behind any product.

    They have tuition repayment/forgiveness for teachers there.

    I was wrong though since she could not be teaching critical needs subject/location though

    Not for everyone they don't. And it's not for the total of your loans.

    My fiancee got invited to a wedding by a nurse at the facility she is the administrator of. She couldnt make it but found out afterwards that the nurse (big essential oils shill) had the entire wedding centered around Doterra essential oils. All the food was made with essential oils. All the gift bags were essential oils. Defusers on the table. The whole 9 yards
