I don’t want to be confrontational with someone who’s trying to be helpful…


Where on Earth did you get this? How do you spot someone, say in a mall, on the street, in a bookstore, anywhere, who has “the slightest self-doubt?”

And who DOESN’T have a least a little self-doubt?

MLMs do not distinguish who they are trying to get involved. The pitches that are used to promote them are designed to catch anything that will work *for that individual prospect.*

If you’re looking for a part-time income, the MLM rep will promote that.
If you’re looking for a full-time income, they’ll promote that.
If you’re looking to retire, they’ll promote that.

If you’re wanting to help a friend or family member out financially, or even if you just want to put more into the church or charity, they’ll promote that.

If you want to get rich, they’ll promote that.

If you want better vacations, they’ll promote that.

They don’t go after people who are self-doubters, or frustrated in their jobs, or weak-willed, or dumb or naĆ­ve. (I’ve heard all of those characterizations used to describe the “best prospect for MLM.”)

Are you getting the idea? There is not one specific thing that MLMs go after when seeking recruits. There is not one type of person who is more likely to get involved in MLM.

There is no blanket statement that covers it all. Anyone can be preyed upon if the rep happens to say the right things at the right time.
