Last night I had the opportunity to attend a meeting of true believers. I felt like I was at a revival. The speakers had a pocket full of cliches distibuted liberally throughout each of the presentation. Some of them included: “go from brick and mortar to click and order”, “if it’s going to happen anyway why don’t you get in the way”, “working locally but thinking globally.” Everytime any of these phrases was uttered it was met by cheers and loud clapping. The enthusiasm level did not come across as sincere it actually came across as contrived. The romm had more converts that recruits, and we were distinguished by our nametags and the goal was conversion, but I went in a recruit and left the same way. I simply refused to drink the koolaid, because although the product was new the game is the same and it is simply a pyramid and the bottom dwellers do well to break even. As they said last night you have to put out money to make money and even if you don’t sell the product they have made money off you so they still win. So before you “stop trading hours for dollars” you really need to make sure you will be comfortable riding the bottom rung because you will be there until you converts some new recruits.
Can you really get rich quick working for someone else?
