So, there's a woman I follow on FB. I've never met her. She was a Beachbody coach. She was fit and funny and had good recipes.
Over the years she sold her business that she'd owned for years (a small vo-tech business) to focus on BB. She posted lots of uplifting new-agey things sometimes too. Anyway, she quit BB (too saturated, had a hard time maintaining income), and moved on to some other health based MLM.
Anyway, yesterday she posts some "Cashflow Quadrant" thing that I think came from "Rich Dad, Poor Dad". Talking about how WEALTH is derived from investing and being a business owner, but not from being an employee or self-employed. Some exerpts:
"Ever wonder why we are conditioned from an early age to go to college and get a good JOB while very little wealth is derived from that box?"
"If we are every going to be wealthy, we have to think like wealthy people do. That means replacing old, limiting beliefs with more effective and useful ones. We have to get CRYSTAL CLEAR on our vision to create a better future, to create success and be free! We have to COMMIT to move over from the left side of the quadrant to the right side of the quadrant as quick as possible."
"I'm excited to have a system that my team and I are using to leverage our time and money to build true time and financial freedom. Do you?"
Now. While I don't disagree with all the points (naturally, investing is good. Being a business owner can also be good, depending on the person, business, and industry). One way to *become* an investor is to work a JOB and INVEST.
I did not respond to the post, but here's the funniest thing. When I went to look it up again, the first thing that popped up was her personal page. This is on her business page.
Her personal page? Guess who just started a new JOB this morning - like a regular 9-to-5 working for someone else job? Yeah.
Color me surprised. Maybe MLMs don't work for most?
