I have learned a lot over all these years. I find that most of the time, I tend to learn things by experience. Sometimes, things look like one thing however when you start to learn about it, it is totally different than you were originally told. I find that to be true with a lot of the multilevel marketing companies out there. Several times I have been misled by representatives of various companies who are really just trying to make a sale or want you to join their team so they can earn money off you that way. I have learned to check things out for myself and not to get caught up in the rep's excitement. They want you to make a rushed decision about joining. I have done this with several companies only to be disappointed later. Making me want to not go to 'parties'. I have learned people will tell you what you want to hear, or what they think sounds good. Some of the people who are your 'friend' are only your friend when it benefits them.
I am letting go of some things that I feel I have no use for anymore. Purchases that were influenced by those representatives. I am going to put together a garage sale and sell some on ebay. I just feel that by lighting the load, so to speak, it will be refreshing.
