Description

What if we told you that with zero experience and only a few hundred dollars down, this podcast could change your life? Well, we’d be lying. This season on The Dream, Jane Marie dives into the world of pyramid schemes, multi-level marketing, and all the other businesses that require their members to recruit their nearest and dearest in hopes of a commission. Join us as we trace the path of get-rich schemes from Jane’s roots in rural Michigan all the way to the White House.

I swear this podcast is half audio diary. I don't care about the host's life.

She did a fantastic job with that interview! It was clear that his intention was to deflect and obfuscate in order to push his agenda.

A few of the earlier episodes were interesting/entertaining, but the series has become mindnumbingly dull. We all know that lobbiests and politicians are in bed together, but I'm truly not interested in hearing about it in an exquisite, neverending detail. As much as I detest MLMs, I'm starting to feel like I should root for Amway because of the tone of the reporting.

How about Franchises? you spend at least over 25K, for a small business. is it considered MLM, if you think about it. the difference that it has a retail. I would like to ask the host, is she trying to proof that all MLM, are a scam. Or , she is trying to show, how to spot a scheme. I hope the host can answer that question. by all means, I like this podcast. it makes me think about a lot of things. Thanks

Gehane Ayad A franchise is not a small business either... what differentiates MLM is the recruiting of downlines and making commission and promotions (going up in levels) off the recruiting and sales of downlines

MLM, is not necessary a scam, because in any company, you will have different levels of positions? I'm not sure, if the host, is trying to show if all these companies are a scam, but maybe to know the difference between MLM, and a scam? I am confused what the host is trying to say, from those episodes? Thanks

I'm ask a stupid question, what is your definition for a pyramid scheme? I understand if you have no product, and making your money from other recruiters, that's a scheme. But, in any type of work, you multi level position, but in different titles. In any kind of job, you still have to spend money for daycares or transportation etc. so, I get lust in this episode, what is the definition of a pyramid scheme. like 31, if people have legitimate products, and selling in a different way, than retailers, this is not illegal. you did a great job, but now I'm lost, what is the purpose of this podcast? Thanks
