I met this complete “Douche Bag” at a Networking Event recently. Well, actually – they more met me. This person just was so “Positive” and really “Nice” to me. In fact, this person kept following me around at the Networking Event!
I had this strange conversation with the person in that he was asking me a lot of questions, but when I asked him – I got vague answers such as:
– I help people make money.
– I build teams to help people make money.
– I am a Networker of Businesses.
I kept asking precise questions such as “What do you do?” and this Weasel kept ducking them again and again!
This conversation went on for a few minutes and I decided to move on.
On a funny note, this “Slime Ball” tried their stuff on others – and was actually alienated from other people in the room! (And left very early).
You know and I know, this person was one of those lovely people from some certain Pyramid / Multi-Level-Marketing Shonk that was obviously looking for new people to prey on.
Over the years, I have had very good friends get caught up in these “Shonky” schemes.
The true sad part of all this is that out of at least 10+ people I have seen caught up, NONE of them have actually remained in the schemes or have made money. The sad truth is that “Positive Thinkers” have used this as a means to try and not only rip people off – but they end up selfishly wasting the time of others. In my own life, I have encountered many of these “Bottom Feeders” who want nothing other than to rob me of both for their own Selfish Agendas.
Are Rip-Off Merchants New? Of course not – but what I find just fascinating how the are really “Con-Men/Women” and they use the whole “Positive Thinking” / “Abundance” / “Rivers of Cash Flowing” – to get us to overcome our natural intelligence so they can take our hard earned cash. Our Time and Money is precious (especially time as you can’t make it back) – watch out for not only the Rip-Offs, but also how “Positive Thinking” can make you inactive.
Remember, while the intelligent people are working hard, overcoming real issues and making money – while the “Positive Thinkers” are busy imagining stuff that won’t ever happen to them. Be careful out there and stay realistic! It’s a Jungle out there and watch out for lions disguised as “Positive Thinkers!”
