they probably are into multi-level marketing…lol.
Several weeks ago I was standing in the business section of my local bookstore. I glanced up just as a woman walked by. I went back to looking at the books. A couple of seconds later I see someone coming down aisle. I look up to see that it is the woman who just walked by. I keep looking and finally she asks, “What are you looking for?”
“Ah, I’m just browsing while I wait,” I replied.
“Oh, I’m currently reading Dale Carnegie’s ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People,’” she told me.
“That’s funny,” I said. “I was just re-reading that book the other day. In fact it’s sitting on my nightstand right now.”
Well, it took of all of five more seconds before she launched into her into spiel about how she worked with people to help them reach their goals and stuff—standard multi-level marketing b.s. I told her that I had heard of her company (Primerica) and had actually attended A.L. Williams (which was the early Primerica) meetings when I was a kid.
Once she found out that I wasn’t interested in her company, the conversation dwindled down to nothing and I left.
Anyway, I must visit bookstores too often because this has happened to me more than once.
Do you have any multi-level marketing stories to tell? I’d like to hear them.
