Hey there hun. Long time no see! Boy, have I got an opportunity for you. How would you like to be your own boss and join my team? It’s so cheap to join! Only $500 up front. You gotta spend money to make money. No initial inventory required! You’ll just need to buy the product to show to your customers. It’s so easy. I work 80 hours a week for myself—beats working 40 hours a week for a boss, am I right? You’re in full control of how much you sell, you just need to sell enough to be qualified for the commission. I am my own boss and I’ll be as wealthy as the company’s CEO in no time. Anyone can do it, and if they can’t, then they don’t want it enough. Only quitters lose, and only losers quit!
Sound familiar? If you’ve ever gotten an unsolicited DM like this from a total stranger or that one high school friend you lost touch with years ago, then you’re probably familiar with multi-level marketing. Or perhaps you yourself are a recovering pyramid schemer? Hey, we all go through bouts of desperation and bad life choices, but that doesn’t make cringey MLM posts and doublespeak copy-pasta any less annoying for someone on the receiving end. If you’re fed up with all the scammers peddling their fake bullshit, you’ll surely get a kick out of these anti-MLM memes and eye-roll worthy posts from wannabe entrepreneurs and ‘bossbabes.’
