Re: Stegen, you’re not alone!
Don’t feel bad, I once had a $5,500 lesson (in 94) Long story short- This guy wanted me to go in on a business with him and if I INVESTED 5,500 he would make me a manager and I would receive more commission off the sales. I had no clue to the world what he was really doing, but it ended up being a multi-level marketing company called Equinox. Well, little did I know that…
A) The sales I would have to do
B) The money I invested went for 'environmentally safe' products that I had to sell
C) Then they wanted me to get all my friends and family to invest money into 'MY' company
I had no idea what Amway or Conklin or even Avon was at the time.
Oh well, I learned about them the hard way and will NEVER do MLM business AGAIN!!!
Good Luck Stegen, yours is a different situation but you need to learn from it and move on. We can only blame ourselves for the actions we take.
