I’m embarrassed to say that I was sucked into an MLM after the birth of my youngest child. I was at a Body Shop/Ann Summers party and had a bit too much too drink (I hadn’t had a drink in months so I’m blaming that for my moment of madness).
All was going well until I woke up the next day and it slammed me like a truck: I had signed up to be an Ann Summers rep!
Millions of thoughts went through my head but the main one was how was I going to sell this shit?! I mean, I can’t even use vibrators due to being allergic to the material used (found out the hard way, so to speak, but let’s move on from that).
