a few jobs ago,
i was being harassed by some of the mailroom wolves.
they were all doing this thing called,
“wish you were here”.
the idea was selling travel and going to go to these exotic locations.
during various photo shoots,
they’d put up this cocky ass sign:
“Wish You Were Here”
one of the cute ones came to my crib with hopes of trying to convince me.
instead of feeding me the pipe like i’d hope,
he came with a friend to feed me garbage of a “get rich quick” situation.
needless to say,
when i said i wasn’t interested,
he stopped speaking to me.
they are all still working regular jobs.
“The American Dream of Get Rich and Quick”
i watched an interesting documentary tonight on netflix.
it was called,
“better on zero“…
it was about the alleged pyramid scheme called “herbalife“.
we all know that company all too well in the foxhole.
you couldn’t go to a attentionisto’s ig without seeing it in their status.
companies like this feed off of the poor.
poor folks see the muscular ig wolf,
bawdy like kapow,
living the “american dream”,
and want that life too.
the issue is,
they’re trying to pitch to other poor folks who want to be rich.
when you get recruited,
you have to sell it to others who aren’t make that much money either.
if you don’t make money,
your “supervisor” doesn’t make money either.
you get dropped and all this “investment” that you can’t get rid off it.
now that we don’t see herbalife being shoved down our throats,
all those muscular and sexy folks have gotten a new hustle.
“Sell Them Their Ultimate Fantasy While I Get Paid Too”
they’re realized they can make more money selling their bawdies:
that’s a much more authentic hustle i can get with.
you have to put in work in order to make a living.
if you don’t provide good content/service,
you won’t be making a profit.
so that’s all YOU if you want to succeed.
that’s the real american dream.
