It would be pretty terrible to go right from the Family into another "high demand" organization like MLM.
I guess that is exactly what happened to Jane. When you think about her leaving the Faminly with two small children, one terribly handicapped, and no professional skills, a pitch like Amway would be music to the ears. She wasn't lazy, she was just trying to deal with a child that needed constant care, working 12 hours a week? Sure! Sign me up.
I actually,2925" lazy. I was working 40-60+ hour weeks in the tradeshow biz. Making six figures for 12 hours a week? Sure! Sign me up! I really did take it hook, line and sinker. But, I was about 21 years old at the time, what did I know?
Having been an actor, I also give advice to young actors and models regarding how to keep from getting taken advantage of here in L.A. Right not the landscape is changing in that area due to problems between the Screen Actors Guild and the ATA and NATR (organizations that represent professional Talent Agencies). Most don't know the difference between an Agent and a Manager (one is regulated, one is not). You would not believe the scams that go on that involve money if you have it, and sex if you don't.
If you guys are interested in a Scam page, and need some assistance, please let me know.
