In just the past few weeks I’ve come across more and more stories in the media regarding starting your “own home business.”
First NPR glorified Mary Kay.
Then just recently, All You magazine did a several-page spread about it.
Apparently people are considering joining these companies because of the tough economy in hopes of making some extra money. Unfortunately, the likelihood is greater that they will add to their debt rather than aleviate it.
And I wonder…had anyone stopped to think about who might be buying these frequently overpriced products from these new “consultants?” With most everyone being cautious with their spending and many losing their jobs, just who is buying all this Mary Kay and candles and jewelry and superduper juices that these companies hawk?
