Selling Pond Slime

My first real success in building a downline was way back in the mid 70's.

There was a company that advocated and offered spirulina as a superfood for daily consumption. You may have heard of it. Light Force was the name. It was a tad ahead of its time in spirit.

Eventually it got absorbed by Royal something-or-other. I forget the name. Probably shouldn't have stopped eating that pond slime.

Long before that I was squeezed out by demotivation. The big demotivating event was the abandonment of the local downline organization by the leaders.

They suddenly decided to move away. They believed that the organization was self motivating at that point. They were wrong.

There was a local leadership couple in their downline that went on to become the biggest downline builders. They were not in my upline, so I just didn't pay attention.

Stuff like this happens. Then, the hitters say we jump from one deal to another.

Is this a case of "Blame the victim?"

They Call Us MLM Junkies

Why do they call us MLM junkies? They say we jump from one network marketing deal to another. That's why we're losers. We don't stick to anything like the hitters do.

As if....

  • Companies never dilute their products
  • Pay plans only get better
  • Uplines are always there for coaching you
Have you ever seen that? More than once?

When Art Meakin got blown out of a failed mlm company, he found the oldest most stable deal he could. Is that the answer?

Do mlm junkies ever heal? What does it take?

These are a few questions I would like answers to.
