Why I said I would NEVER do a network marketing business

Here’s the deal. You and me and every other person on this planet with a ponytail and a Facebook account has been invited to 30 batrillion parties. I used to think it was annoying. And still don’t always super love it because not everyone is tasteful about it. This is my story. I used to […]
