    I feel like this says more about the isolation of modern motherhood than anything else

    This is extra sad because of the insane amount of waste created by the fashion industry... all this stuff only getting worn once... so much pollution & slave labour all around.

    LuLaRoe using the cult practice called "love bombing" -- making recruits feel loved, part of the group, important in order to manipulate them. predatory behavior. preying on people with low self esteem. sick.

    If you had 5000 to invest into a business, why wouldn’t you invest into your own ?

    I never quite understood the charm of LuLa Roe. It all looked like stuff you could buy at Walmart for a fraction of the price to me.

    Maybe I'm antisocial but I had a friend suddenly start calling me hun and babe and hounded me to buy lipstick. That friendship dissolved quickly

    How does one make $30-50k a month lose their home??! 🤦🏽‍♀️ that would’ve been the first thing paid off then worry about the expensive bags and dinners.

    The thing I find so awful about MLMs is how they obviously target women looking for a sense of belonging. They don’t really sell clothes or whatever, they sell a dream to lonely women. It’s so predatory and sad.

    *Fine, YouTube, I'll watch it*.
    In all honesty though, good call YouTube, this was interesting. The part about the gastric bypass was absolutely sickening.

    Nothing incites my anger more than a pyramid scheme disguised as empowerment.

    For those who are calling these women 'geniuses' as if they have never fallen victim to being manipulated...This isn't about whether someone is a genius or not - this is about a company preying on people. They have experts on social engineering and manipulation with a legal team of barracudas. I absolutely think as a society we need to wise up to this and this type of coverage exposing it really helps.
