View Full Version : What a pitch.

Ok so I was talking to my homie in cali and he said hes found this great way to make money. Now I was in this thing with him once, and to cut it short it wasn't my thing. I did think it was a good idea, and I almost believed it could be possible, but at that time I was more interested in other things so it didn't last long. Best way to explain what it is, is networking. Or for the simple minded pyramid scheme, except its legal. So he picthed this new one at me and I have to say I'm really thinking about it. TTTOOOO much real evidence to not believe that this is possible. And I'm ready for something different. My job right now is taking hours of anime away from me, and I'm sick of the work. I'm your basic handyman so I work with paint, electrical, plumbing(eewww), drywall, flooring all of it hard and dirty work. The pay is decent I make 24g a year, no wife, no kids and my only worry is bills, but I have to work alot of hours. And with all that I'm seeing right in front of my eyes I'm very tempted to do this. Should I?? By the way if you reach a certain point in this company they give you an m5 and a little more you get a freaken bently. OMG I want those cars....

All that I can say is screw retirement and benefits that you can get from a job. Those are what hooks people for the most part, and makes people stick with jobs. What truly matters is being happy. If you don't like your job, screw it. The benefits and all that shouldn't matter.
Another way to look at it is this: If you stick with the jorb you have right now, are you going to regret finding something different years down the line? On the same token, would you regret going off and doing this new thing even if it doesn't work out years down the line?
One thing to remember though is that there are no wrong choices. Success is relative. That means you can never fail unless you, and only you, tell yourself that you do.

Thats how the whole entire system works. If you tell yourself its possible they give you the opportunity to make it happen for you. And this could be part time. I don't have to quit my job to start this. All I need is a comp, cell phone and its all go from there. Whats funny is the whole basic idea is so freaken simple and easy that a 8 year old can do this, and maybe thats why its 400+ billion dollar company. It was recorded on Fortune 500 magazine, Business at Home magazine and NBC did a section on the company. Just because the world said that you have to go to work for someone else, you have to do it that way, the only way you can become rich is this way, or in most cases, you? get rich?? HAHAHAHHA!!, doesn't mean that there isn't a way to do it without breaking your back. I don't know, the whole entire thing is really enticing.

I need to get the details first, but when I do and if your serious about this and I mean serious, this is not a joke and if you think this is a joke I will ignore you, then I will hit you up later about it. That is if i decide to do this.

I'm always down for new adventures. I'm not just trying to be facetious. Hit me up if all goes well. I would greatly appreciate it.

Here is a word of advice. IF ITS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE ITS NOT!!!! The grass is never greener on the other side. You should always focus on benifts such as medical and dental insurance, but that is all you really need. At least your putting in some over time. I just stay stick with your job that you have now and never quit unless you know your next job will gurantee better payement. Trust me on this it comes from expierence.

Meng I'm not as stupid as when I was younger, and I'm not going to dive into this without solid proof and facts. At any rate I'm seeing the proof right now. If your not wise enough to see an opportunity and you see it as only some bs then your the one missing out on it. My mistake the last time I did this one 1) I didn't believe in the company which was really stupid of me cause a week after I left Donald Trump himself join up with the company 2) I didn't believe in myself, something I regret to this day. Just because you've lived through something like this before doesn't mean you should hide inside a freaken hole, live through the rat race and die poor and lonley. And there was one more thing I noticed about these companies. Most of the people are around the age of 30-40-50. Why?? Becuase, I said this before, they were wise enough to see an opportunity and take it by the horns and ride with it. They have also worked hard for years, at least a decade, and they were getting tired of the constant repetition of getting up early, siting in traffic, dealing with the boss, then going back home in time to hear the wife and kids cry about things(or husband and kids) and they got tired of it. The younger people still have it in there heads that they can do everything, they know everything, and something like this is under them. That was another one of my mistakes. I won't be doing the same thing again. For 1 bit of solid proof about the company im thinking about joining, Dish Network and Satellite TV have joined up with them and is working together. WOULD TWO BIG NAMED COMPANIES JOIN SOMETHING FALSE, FAKE, ILLEGAL??? And why can't something be too good to be true?? Things like that happen all the time!! But everyone has their own opinions and thats what makes us human. When I start to get balling I will personally go to everyones house who laughed at me, show them my bank account and my pimpin car and laugh at their face. Be ready to be one of them, even if it takes a year or two.

leerock89 > This sounds quite promising, although personally I am a little wary of pyramid schemes....but that's just me. Various other pyramid-scheme-based companies like Avon are highly successful, so I can't just dismiss things with a wave of the hand.
On the other hand, you've mentioned that this company is listed in the Fortune 500, and is a 400+ billion dollar company... Would you be able to give any details, such as the company name? This is certainly something rather interesting to look into. The claim about the company giving you luxury cars seems a little too good to be true, although I've heard that certain law firms have such a practice for their partners and junior partners, so it may be valid after all.
leerock, all the best in your new undertaking, I wish you success... Although my advice would be to play it cautiously and not give up your current job so easily; as you've said, the money is quite decent and it does pay the bills.
