Remember the guy who taught painting on public television?
Watching him was poetry. Relaxed poetry. No broad brushstrokes.
(Okay, that’s a broad brush he’s using in this photo. Work with me…)
Meanwhile…well, not everybody is this calm and peaceful. This serene.
After a couple comments about the dislike of MLM (Multi-Level Marketing), next came this exchange:
More comments slamming MLM, followed by…
And Jennifer’s Response:

There’s another lost point in Scott’s original post: “Internet Marketing Seminar.”
Here’s where, one could argue, the “charlatans” Scott refers to might be even more dangerous. (See our post on Internet Marketing Explained from a couple weeks back.) Promises of riches with little work, while not overt, are really implied with “Push Button” and “Auto Click” and anything related to the word “System.”
So…Why is Neither One Wrong?
Scott’s point: don’t sell pipe dreams. Don’t sell the fact that there isn’t hard work involved. Don’t prey on people’s desires for a quick fix.
Jennifer’s point: hard work is involved. Focus on the positives. Lots of good people. Ethics, please.
My point (and I’m not accusing either of blanket statements): study the line of work before you jump in. MLM, IM, any M. Get a few opinions. Don’t believe the hype in either direction. You can find some success stories who are honest folks, and you can find some failures who are, also, honest folks.
Ask around. Bring a blanket.
