So if you looked up the word Gullible it says, “easily persuaded to believe something; credulous.” So I looked up credulous and it said, “having or showing too great a readiness to believe things.”
I had an interesting conversation today and we were talking about these places that appear to prey on the Gullible. You know the drill.
You get dragged to a meeting where you hear a pitch.
Everyone can benefit from the product. It's super easy to join. It's even free.
You are encouraged to bring your friends.
If you want to become a member there are fees based on your level of dedication.
There are weekly meetings to attend and in some cases twice a week.
There are brainstorming session on how you can get the word out there and raise more money for the company.
If you are active enough and demonstrate dedication, you may get an advisory board.
Some people show up and swear the product works, while others don't attend weekly meetings and don't seem to be getting any results
Some people think the whole thing is a scam. The people pushing the product are just a bunch of snake oil salesmen trying to brainwash people
What company do you think I'm talking about? Amway? Advocare?
