Well, kinda...but it was a success. My husband and I were staying at The Mirage in Vegas. This guy stops us as we're walking in and says "Hello! You two are such a nice looking couple. Are you two married? Good! Do you make $50,000 a year or more combined? Excellent! How does $200 cash for gambling sound for 1 hour of your time? Okay, all you have to do is meet me at the lobby after you get checked in. All you have to do is listen to our presentation and you will get $200 cash no strings attached"! We meet Mr. Greasy downstairs in the lobby and we go into the meeting room where there are 6 other couples. We sit there and listen to him talk on and on about timeshares in Mexico...what we can make....free vacations...blah..blah..blah. After the presentation they tell us to talk to one of the partners around the corner to give our decision. We sit down at his computer and ask for the cash right away and he gives it  to us along with a voucher for the buffet. We tell him we aren't interested, but give him two fake people for them to contact and leave with cash in hand. Simple.

got caught up in Amway back in my teens. Went to presentations and to see speakers with "amway friends" and everything. smh. wasn't for me. I was thinking that this is the same as AVON.   

folks did try to keep me in the game tho. When I first came to Boston I had "upper level" folks with their own jets "supposedly" offering to fly out and help me do a presentation or two. Names that I recognized in the Amway game but I was still like nah. I'm done.

I knew she was playin'. I will say tho she's not wrong. You can't open a business for a month and expect immediate dividends.


Businesses like Amway, Avon, Mary Kay and this new Traveling thing my 2nd cousin is into takes time, dedication and drive. Not to mention like she said...you have to know how to talk to people. You have to have a certain magnetism to get people on your team. It's like any other job...

lord this new travel thing to raaaassss! its here my fren sent me titangraphs of foolishness that wasnt saying anything. However my cousin flew out yesterday to orlando for "training" . Ponzi and pyramid schemes CAN NOT last in Jamaica (there just isnt enough ppl on the island plus a whole chunk of those folks dont have the disposable income to participate) It GRIEVES me that this god darn travel thing is up again after so many Jamaicans lost billions in cash plus and world net and Olint just 2 years ago *slaps forhead* are folks really that simple to say its the same because those were "investment" and this travel thing is a product. ARGHHH

At least avon is selling products and jesus know the yardies lurrrvveee avon. Esp those roll-on deoderant and perfumes (amrai, far away)from  19 how-long YUCK (but they sel then in the chinese wholesales)

I have a great opportunity if anyone here want to work for themselves, but you have to have self esteem, strong work ethic, self discipline, personal source of motivation and willingness to learn. I think its better than working in Retail for example: how many 50 dollar bras do you sell and still make the same $9.00 per hour? at least you get paid equal to the work you do. and the real money is in building your own team of sellers... PM for more thoughts

do you still have this business?
