I’m just a bitter negferret mood-hoover who failed at MLM, because I didn’t want it enough. Also, I am a “dumb-dumb” for falling for MLM in the first place…

Yes, its true – Elle only wrote this blog because she is bitter and jealous of Younique success stories. Honest.

Don’t worry, that’s a joke, huns.

In the spirit of Timeless Vie‘s “But Why Aren’t You Balanced?” post, I want to address the whole “you’re just a disgruntled former rep” drivel, following a bizarre exchange of messages sent in from a follower. You’ll see those shortly.

When I started telling my #Poonique story in March 2017, I knew that some people would not like what I had to say. Back when Timeless Vie and Bot Watch were kindly talking to me, and explaining what a crock of shite MLMs truly are, I observed the work they were doing over social media.

Tales from Former Huns: Della’s Avon Tribulations

Elle is certainly not the only one to have a bad MLM experience. Della speaks about her Avon Lady stint, including unsupportive uplines & territorial reps.

I’m comforted to know I’m not the only one to get bamboozled by MLM schemes.  

Many followers have been kind enough to contact me to share their experiences with MLMs – we’ve had accounts from Ann Summers, Arbonne and of course, Maz Carrah adding her voice to #TeamPoonique

UK-based follower Della [not her real name] has asked for her Avon story to be shared with you all. Now, Avon has established itself as a household name, and its perceived as “the teddy-bear of MLMs“, so it will be interesting to hear her story.

#Poonique Epilogue: An Interview with “Kerri”

Elle has finished telling her #Poonique tale, but there’s still plenty to come. Here, her former teammate, “Kerri” agrees to an interview with questions posed by Elle’s followers.

You’ve all read my #Poonique tale by now, I’m sure.  For those who haven’t, get caught up. 😉

When my tale had finally reached its conclusion, I felt compelled to reach out to my former upline, “Scarlett” (aka Jade Pow MUA) – she kindly agreed to give her side of the story in an interview. Now, comes the opportunity for Kerri to speak out.

Using #MeToo to Flog Crap Mascara? Not Cool, Younique Huns…

Elle has noticed that Younique huns have already began using the #MeToo movement to push their crappy products & ‘charity’ – read on.

I was recently saddened and infuriated by Younique huns, all at the same time. Before I elaborate on why, let me give you some background.

Social media users will be no stranger to the #MeToo movement, where victims of sexual assault and harassment united on Twitter to publicise their experiences.

MLM Selling in Facebook Groups: “Three Spaces on My Team”, Mum-Shaming & Timeless Vie’s MLM-Free Network Zone

Admins of Facebook groups are inundated with MLM recruitment posts & reps trying to bait their members, as well as parent-shaming. Read how they are fighting back…

If you have a Facebook profile, chances are you’ll be a member of a Facebook group. With the rise of MLM’s presence over social media over the past few years, it makes (unfortunate) sense for presenters/reps to utilise these groups for their own agenda.

This article will discuss subtle (and not-so-subtle) MLM selling in Facebook groups, Timeless Vie‘s MLM-Free Network campaign, and how group admins and their fed-up members are starting to push back.

Observations From a Concerned Friend: Magda Needs Saving From The Y-Life

Elle recently received an account from Lillie, a woman whose friend Magda has been sucked into Younique. Read her rant on how her friend has changed, and not in a good way…

Many followers have been kind enough to contact me to share their experiences with MLMs – check out my Tales From Former Huns section to read their accounts. This tale, however, is a little different.

Today, I am sharing this saga from “Lillie” [not her real name]. Lillie is a frustrated friend who wishes to discuss her observations of Magda, a stay-at-home-mother who is truly besotted with the Y-life.
