Megan Coleman wants you to believe that Mary Kay is a real business. She and other MLM pushers will keep telling you that it IS a real business.
NO. IT. IS. NOT.
Real businesses are based on selling products and services, not on recruiting people who will make large product purchases themselves (which they will never be able to sell profitably). MLM is all about recruitment, but they pretend to be about sales. It’s a huge difference.
And no, 90% of people who start real businesses don’t fail. Unless you’re talking about a very long term look. In MLM, 99% lose money immediately with no hope of ever changing that. It’s completely different than starting a real business with a unique offering. (Plus in a real business, you’re not recruiting competitors.)
