I would be doing story time this soon after joing VBC Surivor Club. But paine_wwweb_r has forced me.
The reason that I got out of ALLWAY was because of control, free speech, and the hippocracy that negates the two. ALLWAY IBOs (At least on the Bill Britt side) always tout your distributorship as being YOUR business. “I don’t work for ALLWAY, I work for myself. It’s MY business. MY distributorship.” However, when it came to running MY business, the upline pretty much told me how to run it or else I should get out.
As far as free speech goes, you could pretty much count that right out. I had to talk a certain way, “live my life like Jesus,” I wasn’t allowed to say anything bad about ALLWAY or the business, and most importantly I couldn’t tell the truth.
It is my right as an American, as stated in the first amendment of the constitution, to say what I want when I want it, paine_wwweb_r. I have not used obscene language here on the board, so I feel that I’m in the right calling ALLWAY people Nazis.
paine_wwweb_r , having you tell me to watch what I say just furthers my hatred of anything ALLWAY. You may not be a part of ALLWAY anymore, but the tendencies to muzzle free speech must still be ingrained in your head. I am sorry if you are offended by what I said, but if you would like to discuss the issue more, I’d be happy to instant message you any time this evening.
The man who continued to pester him about the company gave him loans vidoes to watch, a discussed the revolution it would have on the way people shop online. It wasn’t until we did some brief web searching that we found out it was actually part of ALLWAY! He didn’t disclose this information AT ALL. (Although, the poinently irrelevant tapes should have given it away– what make a tape of the luxuries you WOULD have if you joined this company, but not explain HOW one earns their money?) We snickered at the whole “ALLWAYa” bit, and dropped it.
However, I started selling AVON later that summer, and I have a question. How is AVON not VBS? There are a lot of happy Avon reps out there, including myself, but what SPECIFICALLY sets it apart from being an VBS? No matter what, I can’t seem to find any information that dscusses AVON abusing its direct selling power. Any thoughts? Thanks!
He isn’t as faithful a computer junkie as I am. To answer your question, yes it was the reason for the breakup. My brother got a once-in-a-lifetime buyout from his company and instead of paying down the mortgage and so forth, she “followed her dream”.
IMO, his estimate is WAY too low as to much money she threw away on ALLWAY.
By a factor of 3, as in it is only 1/3 of what she wasted. And that was ONLY ALLWAY, not the other VBS’s she was into.
After her spending all this, he put it to her “either ALLWAY or me”. She said she would think about it. Later, she said “How dare you deny me my dream.” But SHE didn’t earn the money that was wasted. Her body didn’t take a beating from 14 hr/7 day work weeks. He did. And he has the chronic illnesses to prove it.
IMO, she robbed him of at least 10-15 years of his life. It will be at least that long before he can rebuild to where he was. To say nothing of the heartache of missing his daughter so much. Not only that, the daughter is neglected a lot because “Mommy talks on the phone all the time.” And her age makes it especially pernicious. At a time when the only question in her life should be h
ow much love am I going to get today, she is learning that “Mommy’s dream” is more important to her than her own daughter is.
We love the little girl, but since my brother was left in so much debt from the ex’s ALLWAY involvement, he has to work all the time now, too. I have begged him to file for bankruptcy. While mostly those laws are abused, they were written for innocent victims like him. But he wants his daughter to continue living in the same house. (Her parents and her son are making her part of the mortgage(s) payments.)
I have told him I was writing all this.
