Some Day I'll Laugh About This: The True Story About My MLM Experiences
On a summer day in 1981, I welcomed my landlord and his super-sized upline into my living room. Once the white board was set up, the upline started giving me his slick presentation on an MLM company. He passionately shared how his company distributed the best soap products on the planet. I listened politely as I kept glancing at the clock. “When WILL he be done so I can get on with my life?”
Then the upline guy started drawing little circles on the white board. Hmmm....I was intrigued. Not intrigued enough to sell his soap, but certainly fascinated.
That was my first glimpse of the power of networking.
During my early years we lived in Ohio. We were a Leave-It-to-Beaver kind of family in the 1950’s. Dad wore a suit and tie everyday to work; my mother was a June Cleaver stay-at-home mom.
I’ve always loved books. When I was only TWO years old, my parents bought me a complete set of encyclopedias to give me a good start in my education. The phrase, “When you go to college…” was a frequent discussion. Fortunately, I fit nicely into that academia box. I decided at an early age that I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up.
I went to college in Indiana and graduated cum laude in elementary education. I was on my way to a FABULOUS career. I would have my summers off and live the GREAT AMERICAN DREAM.
