A friend of mine recently became an independent consultant selling through a multi-level marketing company. This new business venture seems to have replaced her former career goals. She is putting a lot of effort into marketing, spamming Facebook, and hosting parties to sell items. She had to buy into the company, and I get the impression that she’s struggling making her money back.
I want to support her, but I don’t want to buy any expensive products that I don’t need. I also don’t feel comfortable introducing her to my other friends or family members, because she’s so focused on making sales. I also don’t really agree with the questionable sales tactics of the company.
I can tell she needs encouragement, but how can I help her without compromising my own values? -Lorraine
