What an incredible load of ill-informed balderdash. Who's paying this guy? Avon?

One star for actually sitting to write this crap! And zero stars for, well actually publishing! This person obviously is not in tune with the 21st century, it is all about network marketing and Amway does it best. With all the mountain of garbage that we have been dragging with us in our minds, how can we not need a good brain washing? I'm not in the business yet, only mother and that "brain washing" has made us a better close knit family. Not even counseling gave us that. How can reading some John Maxwell, Stephen Covey and the likes be bad for someone's lives? I can't see it. Anyways, it pays our bill and we don't have to worry about college saving for us or loans later on. No mortgages and vacation whenever! If that's not a great peaceful life I don't what else is. And no, as you may note, you don't need to be a smarty. My mom is Hispanic and never even got close to a high school degree.
