Look, I will probably already be eighty-five when you read this, and there are just some things I need to get ‘out there’ while I am still in my right mind. I have noticed lots of people being bummed out because, no matter what they do — abundance seems to allude them.

There is one thing so many people over-look, but they also think there is some kind of a stigma against it…and I have never been able to understand this. So, I am going to bring it up here, but before I do — I want you to know that I ‘spoke’ these things to a pastor once, and she denounced me, raked me over the coals, and more or less pointed to the door…if you know what I mean.

This is what I tried to share with her. I said, “You know, so many people think that multi-level marketing is a scam, but the other day, while reading about the ‘feeding of the five thousand’ — it was as though suddenly, I was seeing a ‘picture’ of multi-level marketing — I mean, think of it…Jesus told them to sit down in units — he took something very healthy — the two loaves and five fishes — broke it into small pieces, handed it to His disciples — they ‘distributed’ it among the many — and there was gobs left over!”

Then the fireworks began — I walked out of there feeling awful, down-trodden, ‘not enough’ and ‘never do anything right’ again — as I had felt so many years before, before I came to know God. She accused me of ‘using the scriptures for personal gain’ and some other nasty things I don’t recall, but the ‘feeling’ I left with — I will never forget.

Maybe I am just sharing this, so I can hear someone say “Hey — I see it, too!” But mostly, I think I am sharing this, hoping to create a small ‘shift’ in the thinking of those who have somehow picked up the erroneous belief that MLM is ‘a scam’ and missing out on the complete blessing of abundance that follows, if one treats it like a gift — and is willing to share the gift with others. Because whatever the product might be — if it is something that truly helps others, it will succeed. If the product fails to do what it claims it will do — it will fizzle out and disappear.

In our family, MLM has been a great gift. My one son and his wife were starving missionaries — literally — until a great product came along, brought to my daughter-in-law’s attention by her pediatrician, I might add. Yes, it was from the MLM market. Within a year, their income soared — making it possible for them to not only step away from poverty forever — but to also adopt four children (they had two natural born already) — and two of them were autistic (one, severely…) and one was considered ‘delayed.’

So, I hope I have made a difference with these fumbling words. For there are two things I want to leave with you…the first is: When someone approaches you with great, sincere excitement about a multi-level marketing product that makes people feel better, look better, or opens new doors — please consider it carefully and see where your thoughts take you…and the second thing — please make a decision that when someone steps away from you — you have made them feel better after having been with you. That has always been my inner request, after trailing my drooping tail behind me, away from the ‘servant of God, the ‘un-feeling’ pastor.

Yours truly…really, really truly — Char Potterbaum
