If you have already explained to her that you are not interested

she should leave it at that. Depending on how brainwashed she is she may pressure you or distance herself. They teach in some organizations to disassociate yourself with negativity, anything that may steal your dream…unfortunately that can and does include family and friends. You have to handle it with kid gloves if your friendship is that important to you. Maybe you can share some of the information you have received through research if she pressures you. This will probably trigger her to tell you that those people are just “jealous, broke losers” I guess what I’m trying to say is there is no good way to talk about this with her. You may just have to agree to disagree and just not discuss what is going on in her “business”. If she does see the light she most likely will be scarred somewhat from the experience, your job as her friend is to jAs for her being successful and making 6 figures in the
next three years…. the success rate for MLM’s is very low less than 2%.

I’ve so enjoyed reading the posts by my friends

I have a dear friend who is completely gung ho on Market America. She’s been in a little over a year. I’ve told her that I don’t like it, negative dream stealer that I am, and it’s caused a little friction, nothing serious.
How do you support a friend who you love who’s chosen something that you DON’T love? It’s such a big part of her life now that it seems difficult to just not talk about it…I don’t know whether to just let her talk now that I’ve said my piece and not refute claims she’s making, etc. I figure this whole deal will be a few years in the making, and then will blow over, but I would appreciate any advice.
Plus, maybe I’m wrong and she’ll be living off of a six figure residual income within 3 more years…?

I hate this analogy and would like to respond to it

When a person is hired at a company they are not expected to go out and find as many employees as they can and hire them. The company just hired a new engineer and he has not been asked to hire a bunch of engineers to come in and find even more engineers. We just needed one because that is all the work there is to be done. MLM’s need you to recruit as many people as possible even if the market is saturated. That right there makes no sense what so ever.

Now when it comes to franchising. McD’s and others do not have another one right across the street. There are territories, and if the market can handle it you will see another one a mile or 2 away.

There is NO business like this

I ran a HUGE and profitable Amway business; and although I could assure anyone that the cost to get involved is minimal (compared to what a bricks-and-mortar business costs)…. the new prospect had better be prepared to work HARD, withstand tons of rejection, keep crazy hours, and get involved in corporate-sponsored training, plus be well-versed in sales and business/accounting knowledge.

Otherwise, they’re going to go down in flames. When you make insane statements like the above, I just hope you’re wearing Nomex 😉
