Type of unsustainable business model
In today's segment, we discuss the danger of modern deception in the Body of Christ regarding the rise of false apostles in networks that have been created that are nothing more than “pyramid schemes” leaving the victims on the bottom empty and broke and those at the top riding high on the hog.
The state auditor is allowing unregistered multi-level marketing companies to pay a reduced fine if they put their businesses under state oversight to “confirm that they are not running an illegal pyramid scheme.”
This week the gals discuss the LulaRoe pyramid scheme. Jeepers Creepers!What's an MLM? What's the difference between an MLM and a pyramid scheme? Are MLMs cults? We'll tell you that today! Ash talks about the pyramid scheme that blew up in the mid 2000s thanks to their "buttery soft" leggings that came in crazy patterns and apparently fit everyone like a glove (even according to Cam's mom!). LulaRoe offered women, mostly young mothers, the promise of working part-time from home, for full-time income and the ability to be with their kids. But the family-owned business grew faster than anyone imagined, and storage and greed problems caused the smelly leggings epidemic, which led to dozens of lawsuits and hundreds of lives ruined. Join us as we dive into the incredibly insidious world of MLMs.If you'd like to support your gals and the show, you can head over to patreon.com/TSFU and join for as little as $5 a month!

On this episode, Dr. Keith Strudler and Geoff Brault consider how to handle the Texas youth football team that's banned from the playoffs for being too good. Keith expresses his general distain for Air B&Bs, including those branded by Oregon athletes. And Geoff identifies Keith's plan to leverage NIL opportunities as an illegal business practice.
This week we're talking about the noxious vortex of international bodybuilders, pick up artists, and cryptocurrency evangelists.

PATREON EXCLUSIVE - https://www.patreon.com/posts/58634648 Multilevel marketing is a scam. But thanks to protection by political elites and well-funded industry propaganda, it keeps growing.

Luke talks to MLM expert Robert FitzPatrick for a wide-ranging conversation about the history, scale, and structure of MLMs, and why there's no such thing as a legitimate MLM.

Marc and Kristina are back at it with cult life (this episode was actually recorded weeks before the Fandom episodes and you might say that this research made them wonder if they'd discovered a nascent cult in the genX corner of TikTok). In this episode they examine the false promise of MLMs, the flaw in the girl boss culture that it promotes, and how things can get really culty, really fast without anyone seeing what's going on; just like that its cult o'clock.

In 2013, Mark and DeAnne Stidham founded LuLaRoe, a multi-level marketing firm that still sells women's clothing today. Pushing a feminist image, the company claims to give women the opportunity to become independent retailers. But it's faced plenty of lawsuits, including one from the state of Washington accusing it of operating a pyramid scheme. Amazon's documentary series "LuLaRich" uncovers the company's glamorous rise and empty promises, including through a sit-down interview with the founders themselves. Directors Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason join The Recount Daily Pod to tell the story. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Les, Kurt, and Jason have A LOT to unpack before diving into this week's movie including increasingly more elaborate narrative about Blac Chyna AND the news that the Queen Lori Loughlin is returning to TV in a familiar role… on a channel you've never heard of… for her old boss… who seems to be attempting to re-create his Hallmark Channel magic elsewhere. Then, the guys are ready to meet cute with Lifetime's The Wrong Prince Charming. Is the title alone the most Hallmark-y Lifetime has ever gotten? The movie features Vivica A. Fox and a returning (finally) Tracy Nelson, plus a guy who recently played a prince in a Hallmark movie who Jason has seen shirtless in person. Kurt thinks the acting coach for the entire movie went to our Park Ranger School of Acting™️. And Les thinks the set decorator used the famous leg lamp from A Christmas Story! What IS a Covid-safe hoodie? Is one character taking off his shirt because of an overactive thyroid? And why is Vivica in violation of SO many HR laws? Take a listen to find out!

On this episode Katie and Tom are working through a little bit of homeowners blues while their home is under going a little construction. Toms little bath accident ended up being way more of an issue than either of them anticipated. However, Katie feels that life is still good because she is still not in an MLM thinking she owns her own business. She fills Tom in on the new Amazon series LulaRich, which is a grim and eye opening look into the world of the soft legging enterprise that lit Facebook on fire several years back. Tom reveals the time he himself once fell victim to a pyramid scheme in high school, the worst of them all. And then finally Katie and Tom get into Vanderpump Rules talk! With the premiere of season 9 just around the corner (next Tuesday September 28th 9pm only on Bravo!) Tom reveals what he is most nervous about, excited for, is going to miss the most, and general nervous ramblings that he does whenever he has to talk about the show.

What is multi-level marketing? It is a very popular business model that targets Christians and other people of faith. But… it is almost guaranteed to fail. Because MLM's and direct sales companies are not designed to sell a product but to sell the business itself. Joining us for this episode is Robert Fitzpatrick. He's the president of Pyramid Scheme Alert and the author of the new book “Ponzinomics: The Untold Story of Multi-Level Marketing". Also mentioned in the episode is the podcast The Dream. Season one talks in great detail about pyramid schemes. Please be aware that some of the episodes use strong language. Topics covered in this episode: What is multi-level marketing? What is a pyramid scheme? What is a Ponzi scheme? Who are Ponzi schemes named after? Who was Charles Ponzi? Is multi-level marketing the same thing as a pyramid scheme? What is the difference between a pyramid scheme and multi-level marketing and a Ponzi scheme? What is a good book about pyramid schemes? Will I lose money with multi-level marketing? Is Amway considered multi-level marketing? Is Herbalife multi-level marketing? Do pyramid schemes target Christians? Should I join an MLM? Which MLM should I join?

The ‘Get Rich Quick' scheme pioneered by scamster Charles Ponzi came to an end with his arrest on 12th August, 1920 - but ‘Ponzi schemes' remain a popular form of swindling to this day.
