MLM company scams are everywhere. So, just what is an MLM company? Better known as multi-level marketing companies, MLMs are businesses that involve selling products to family and friends while recruiting other people to do the same (think: Avon, Doterra, Arbonne, Rodan and Fields, and more). Except that only 1% of people who join an MLM company will actually turn a profit.Today, we’re exploring the dark side of MLMs with Peabody and Emmy Award–winning journalist and author, Jane Marie. Jane Marie is the former producer of This American Life and most recently, Michelle Obama’s “The Light” podcast. As host of The Dream podcast, Jane Marie joins us to chat about her debut book, Selling The Dream The Billion-Dollar Industry Bankrupting Americans, a must-read exposé on the deceptive truths behind MLMs.PS - Be sure to check out Jane Marie’s latest podcast called “Finally a Show!” In this episode, you’ll hear:Are MLMs actually pyramid schemes? What it *really* takes to get that fancy car from an MLM companyHow some MLM participants are having to seek out “deprogramming” therapyWhy so many people don’t report their experiences of getting scammed by an MLM companyThe popular brand at Sephora that is a low-key MLMPlus!
