Some of these dodgy MLM’s are amazing. You have to admit that. Despite the Court Actions and the evils committed – they are still going. And what brings me incredible sadness is what I have seen them do first hand to some fantastic people.
About 2 great people I know – true, honest characters, with great ethics and a sense of honour to do the right thing – were at a desperate point at their lives. With the carefully (and almost criminal genius level) constructed sales pitch – they were conned into joining one of these rip-off organizations in Sydney.
I originally told them to leave – they said I was “Wrong” and “Dis-empowering”. Now, these poor characters have nothing – save to say upset friends and family, a ruined reputation and lost opportunity. Even worse, their financial set backs hurt their family.
One of my great buddies Lorna Hollinger (who is a pro in NLP) grilled me today and asked “Why am I so uptight about [insert evil company name]?”.
It got me thinking and seeing great people lose out so some fat cats get rich greatly upsets me. I supposedly am a Christian, so if I am really a Christian I better do some good by protecting those who are being harmed. To me, deep down – seeing my friends being effectively turned into “Losers” has made me thing – this is wrong and it must be stopped!
One thing that Lorna did get me thinking about and I wanted to make clear is that not everyone is evil in these systems. Don’t get me wrong, a good chunk of them obviously are by their actions – but some great people have been fooled into what is becoming well known as a dangerous scheme around Sydney.
So please, if you have good friend get caught up with these schemes – by all means, they are responsible for their actions – but try and give them some compassion. It’s the only way to best show them the light to win them back! As for you evil MLM people – leave my friends alone! You have taken out two of them. You have enough – stop hurting them!
