    Just curious if any pharmacists have gotten bitten by the #smallbusiness, #entrepreneur, #bossbabe bug? :kiss:

    Shame on you or anyone who needs to sell pixie dusted snake oil via their MLM to make a few more dollars on the side.

    I don’t get it.. what does this mean?

    Is this one of those new age get rich with my keyboard and Starbucks coffee image things? Let me guess - you have to be under 30 and have a passion for sleeping in to qualify?

    OP is referring to the pyramid schemes you see all over social media where people try to sell you essential oils/diet aids/exercise videos etc.

    Would feel too embarrassed, non-professional, evil/immoral if that desperate to resort to that type of practice for some extra $$$...
    Is it really worth the extra stress/effort/investment of time? Money does make people do a lot of stupid things

    Beachbody, Jamberry (nails), Pish Posh Divas (skincare), Vasayo (pillz). I guess I only avoided 4. Although I did get out of several candle, legging and makeup parties. Most recent being "Beautycounter" whatever that is

    Only two Pharmacists, one RN, the rest are non medical people.

    Remember most of these kids joined only for the money so this thread doesn't surprise me at all.

    Anyone who sells plexus (especially pharmacists) should be backhanded.

    If one more person mentions R+F to me I will mentally punch them in the nose. Also the word "hustle" outside of speed drills can f right off. I want to work less, not more.

    I sell BeachBody, but mostly because I personally use the membership to get the shakeology discount. The shakes are a great quick and portable breakfast for the mornings of my 11 hour shifts at the pharmacy. I occassionally will have some friends buy some shakes from me, maybe make $30-40 off a bag, but definitely not force feeding it down anyones throat. Regardless, pharmacy is still my career. No #bossbabe #sidehustle here :laugh:

    What make it worst is they prey on friends and family. My wife told me someone started preying during a bridal shower. I hate all these MLM stuff on my FB feed.

    It's mind boggling too. They have no shame, and then you are the dingus when you call them out on the predatory or annoying behavior.

    Huns? As in the nomadic people of Asia, Caucasia and Eastern Europe? Derogatory slang term for Germans?

    Isn’t it spelled “hustle” not “hussle”?

    Yikes.
    I hadn't noticed the title's details.

    It reads like a Kappa Psi party invitation

    If you need extra cash why don't you just pick up an extra shift? Sure beats wasting time and embarrassment.

    At first I misread that as "MTM" and thought "damn, he's getting burned at the stake for that?"

    Then noticed it said "MLM"... oh, as you were.

    I know of a pharmacist who sells Jamberry (or did, anyway) but she was mainly doing it for the discount, because she really liked that product.

    Idk, Primerica is also annoying since for the non ignorant there is pretty much no reason to go through them for anything.

    Anybody want to start up an MLM marketing scheme with me? I imagine it's pretty profitable for the people at the top getting idiots to do the work for them.
