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.

The thought that somebody is getting their money it might as well be me is sickening.

Lemuel is another name for Solomon. he ignored most of the advice at his cost. As a Christian I hate when people make merchandise of Christ, but it often happens.

it's hard to balance esprit de corps with mindless enthusiasm. I'm from a more depressed and fatalistic mindset so this all fascinates me.

I did beachbody for 2 years and am so ashamed that it took me SO long to see the issues with MLMs. I'd love to shed some insight and answer questions on it. There's so much that people don't know. There's talking scripts and everything!

I left after 2 mos. because I couldn't believe the bs that you are talking about They tell you to use a sad story to to make you seem vulnerable & relate to other women. Can you imagine a Man having to do this to create a business.

I enjoyed less of the giggles and such as the previous episode. But, the snide comments on Christianity is too out of place. I liked the more bipartisan and some sympathy to people who get swept up in this. Yes, MLM scams use Christianity/churches, but that shouldn't be lumped together with all Christianity. It's just a totally different subject and religious commentary just doesn't make sense here.

The sarcastic "be white and be a man" comment was really unnecessary. I really enjoy this content, but there is no need for that attitude. Also agree with Bashi, the sarcasm/giggles and constant "okays" is just off putting. It doesn't follow the non-partisan and good journalistic tone of the previous casts.

LB If you don’t think that racism and sexism played a part in hindering a person’s success in the 1800’s, you need to go back to middle school history class. The “be white and be a man” criticism is 100% valid when referring to a white man who in that time period said a person’s prosperity is entirely rooted in working hard and their drive to succeed. A black person could’ve worked as hard as possible and have admirable work ethic but there’s no way they would accumulate as much wealth, if they even could, as a white man with the same amount of effort. Don’t kid yourself.
