[quote]Turns out that whole 'saturating the market by recruiting your friends and friends of friends' thing really bites you in the arse eventually [/quote] Exactly. If I work for any traditional company selling a product, there's a limit to how many new hires I'd be happy with. The only person w...

[quote]I ain’t paying $150 for a tube that will make my lashes look like fricking tarantulas chilling on my face. [/quote] Agree. Friend of mine got duped into buying a ton of R+F skincare. She has perfectly fine skin. She would have balked at the idea of a woman going to the dermatologist and s...

re: Opinion of people who are involved in Multi-level Marketing/ Direct sales - LouisianaLady
Thinking on it, some of the most successful direct sales people I’ve known are best described as aloof. Some of the most good hearted people I know, but their aloofness is a reason they’ve been so successful at sales. When someone else would read a person’s body language and back off, these people d...

It’s so incredibly offensive and rude to suggest such a thing over medical science to someone who is going through as horrible a time already. How far removed from reality do you have to be to tell someone who desperately wants a child or who has a dying loved one to buy your oils? I luckily hav...

re: Opinion of people who are involved in Multi-level Marketing/ Direct sales - LouisianaLady
Exactly. That’s why it’s multi level. A very small % of people do well.. but the numbers don’t lie. Most don’t do well, and many even lose money. I also just have zero tolerance for targeting friends and family. Of course this is the OT so go figure the three people whose wives do it don’t sell t...

[quote]whatever they make is better than nothing.[/quote] A lot of them actually lose money. Some lose thousands. There’s a subreddit against it (/r/antiMLM) and there’s been several people post who had been duped into it and show how much money they lost. Many of the companies, such as the le...

Yeah, it was a booth with the Phil's Oyster Bar logo. Now.. I don't know if that necessarily means it is a Phil's employee but it was definitely sponsored by the restaurant....

re: Roux Rally 2019 - LouisianaLady
One of the seafood gumbos was orange and tasted like etouffee. I mean, it didn't taste bad, but I didn't get gumbo from it. The booth next to the Who Dat booth, with the Mardi Gras decor, tasted definitely burnt. Phil's was so bad that I had temporarily forgotten that first burnt one. I still ...

[quote]For instance, the wife and I bought a house 5 years ago. And what do you know, some of our friends immediately purchased something. We added 2 bathrooms, and what do you know, they started an addition. They couldn't afford either activity. They were doing it just to keep up with us. [/quote]...

re: Average Lives Are Depressing AF - LouisianaLady
Same. I specifically rejected friend requests from people I went to high school with (but am not friends with) and strictly added actual friends and local businesses when I started on Instagram 7 years ago. Now it’s the only app I can open and see exactly what I want to see. ...

re: Average Lives Are Depressing AF - LouisianaLady
A lot of business post far less on Facebook than Instagram. I follow several that only cross post to Facebook once every so often. It’s also much easier to reference old posts on Instagram. Say someone posted a happy hour menu a month ago. On Instagram, the layout makes it really easy to find. On Fa...
