FoD: The MLM Adventures (Final)

I was going through my previous blog entries, trying to figure out which series were left hanging on a thread (I’m trying to get myself reorganized with my Series), and it turns out that I never finished the story of my time as an MLM rung/step/shill/seller.

Shall we get to the end? No worries, it’s not terribly long – if anything, you can probably guess what happened next.

First Post 2018

*proceeds to duck from flying vegetables* Okay, okay. I have been out of the scene for quite some time, but hear me out.

I made quite a big change in September of last year – I switched jobs and I also moved. This meant a whole lotta things, not the least of which are the following:  Continue reading “First Post 2018”

FoD: The MLM Adventures (Part 2)

From Part 1:

I’m all for the “work grind” mantra – Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson lives and breathes it and so does Daymond John, “The Peoples Shark.” Sure, I may not seemingly practice that because I update the blog once in a while (switching jobs is not as easy as it looks – a lesson I’ll take to heart, while moving (as in I’m FINALLY bringing some belongings over to the new place) and dealing with transportation for the new job), but I really am trying – right now, my main concern is keeping my head above the water.

You can ask anybody who did an MLM adventure – one way or another, they will tell you that they felt relegated to doing the above, except that they had someone who consistently raised the water level to the point where they’d sink into financial ruin.

The MLM I signed up with, Market America, I was fortunate enough to have my parents as my upline and even then, they were thankfully not aggressive about it. Granted, they’ve been in a few themselves before where I wasn’t a downline to them, but there were other MLMs I got indirectly involved in where I didn’t have that pleasantry.

TRE: Beauty Tube Drama / Officially Back!

Hey Beautiful Blossoms! Surprise surprise, I’m posting today! And yes, I know I have a history of suddenly dropping off the face of the earth, but this time around it was due to three things:

1. Unplanned trip to Maryland with the Pops.

2. Wedding anniversary in Atlantic City.

3. Moving.

4. Flying to babysit my 5 year old cousin in Las Vegas.

Yep, they all happened in that order. During the Maryland and Atlantic City trips, I brought my recording gear along with my new lighting equipment (which I have yet to figure out how to set up because I have a new work space but it is still relatively small), but there was just no time to set up and record: Maryland had me busy interacting with cousins I hadn’t seen in a year and Atlantic City had me interacting with friends I hadn’t seen in at least 2 years.

Recording in Las Vegas was out of the question: my aunt makes it a point to lecture me when I’m on my phone and not watching my cousin. I’ll let you figure out how she does it, because I went there with my sister to babysit the little tyke when the mother is at work.

Ramblings aside, being away from blogging actually did give me a silver lining: giving me material for this week’s TRE. And holy shit, the world must have tilted on its axis or something because the Beauty Tube scene got eaten up by TMZ and got regurgitated.

Where do we start?
