From Network Marketing Skeptic to Direct Sales Rep


In this episode of the Run Lift Mom Podcast, two women talk about going from network marketing skeptic to direct sales rep…and one of them is me!

This was a crossover from my friend Anna over at the Curiouser & Curiouser podcast and blog.

If you are skeptical when it comes to MLM (otherwise known as “direct sales”, “network marketing”, or “social selling”) companies, this is a great episode for you.
