Episode 50:

Multi-Level Marketing Lies

with Emily Paulson 


Show Notes

Emily Paulson, author and founder of Sober Mom Squad, discusses the deceptive nature of multi-level marketing (MLM) and its impact on women. She shares her personal experience with MLM and highlights the predatory tactics used by MLM companies.

Divorcing women are often in difficult financial situations and seek opportunities to earn more money. MLM representatives often prey on the financial need to lure women into their companies.

Emily explains that many MLMs were designed to specifically target women, offering false promises of financial freedom and empowerment. We talk about Mary Kay Cosmetics and my advocacy website, Pink Truth. Across all MLMs geared toward women, we see manipulation tactics and shame being used to keep participants engaged and prevent them from leaving.

Hear why buying MLM products is a bad thing and how consumer awareness and speaking out about personal experiences with MLMs are crucial in combating the deceptive practices of these companies.
