Misunderstood to the point that many people mistakenly think of some MLM companies as philanthropic endeavors because they sometimes champion good causes.

  1. Thank you! I posted this to my Facebook. One of my cousins blocked me over her Primerica pyramid scheme after I tried to warn her, accusing me of “ruining her reputation.” MLMs really are a cult.

    1. Thanks for sharing this, Jen! Glad you like it. I see that a lot with MLMers — they ruin their own reputations and yet everyone else is to blame. It’s awful how much MLM poisons relationships, and yes they definitely are a cult.
