I remain mystified by the passion of multilevel marketers who try every now and then to convince me that joining an Amway or Avon or Oriflame or Tupperware network is THE way to build a fortune that will yield a residual income for old age. The truth is that everyone has an economic minimum up to which needs are being met - and after that, all additional income is wish fulfilment money which carries little value beyond one's cremation / grave / tower of silence / whatever. Why would I want to be persuaded to persuade someone else that buying overpriced goods of dubious incremental value will buy happiness through income streams?
