When I was younger I wanted my own business, but I didn’t know how to begin. Should I buy a franchise, join a multi-level marketing company, or start my own business?
I went to seminars, presentations, and sales pitches on selling everything from milk additives to fuel additives, from soap to jewellery.
A lot of the presentations were very high-pressured. They were designed to get you to buy, sign, and commit. It was all about selling the dream of a life of leisure; you could live like a king and enjoy life without hard work. You could be different from the average Joe—no longer serving the man but living the dream.
