The Con

For the past few years I have studied the dynamics of motivational presentations in selling. I have come to better understand "the con". A con nearly always involves "selling" something in ways that serve to enrich the seller and financially reduce the buyer. The principles behind a con are the same the world over - lies and more damned lies, the cleverer the better.

For those who are interested in the concept of the con and would like to read some of the most enlightening information on the web, try this and this. Astute people may recognise from these articles just how the fabric of MLM might have been woven.
