Why I love direct sales… because it literally changed the course of my life. Because I see it change the lives of others from income to personal growth to friendships. Why don’t I care what the critics think, because they get paid to destroy dreams. It is literally their job.
Recently a click-seeking blogger took a stab at direct selling. She specifically targeted some of the larger companies. It was quite offensive to see the industry that changed my life fodder for a mean spirited blog. As much as I wanted to comment on her blog, I know that is exactly what she wants. There is a term for someone who “publishes sensational and/or controversial commentary or opinion” for the purposes of increasing engagement. You can look that up in the urban dictionary. But I digress.
It is quite ironic that she leveled her guns at “Friends” sharing product via Facebook. Facebook is 100% funded on ads. So why is it, Scary Mom that you find it so offensive to buy product from friends. Why is it such a hardship to support friends in their endeavors? Why is it okay to be marketed to, just not by people you know? It is a fascinating topic of conversation.
One more thing, let’s drown her out. Be sure to share the blog posts across social media and #DSstrong. Stay tuned for the first profile in success!
