He has been involved with Quixtar for about 3 1/2 years now. He has walked away from college and spent god knows how much money on AMO’s (Amway Motivational Organizations ie Vegas), CD’s and ridiculously high priced “product”.
He is now living on his own, hand to mouth, but with the most expensive soap, toothpaste and energy drinks on the planet. And cases of them, because he has to have sales, and he is his main client. He spends all of his time (while not at his retail job) working on his business. He works at Shaper Image and they have filed bankruptcy, his store is closing, yet he spent the money to go to Vegas when he is not sure he will be able to pay his rent next month. And, oh yes, his cell phone provider has been calling a lot lately.
OK, now that I got all that out, if you truly care for this person you will try to go “gentle” with her and be very patient. You certainly do not have to agree with her, or be conned into any of the aspects of Quixtar, but if you are too harsh or negative, she will label you a “dream breaker” and could walk away from your friendship. And it may take her years to untangle herself from this web. She’ll a friend when she does, because she will not have any left.
Hal is correct when he said that she is being brainwashed. I have no doubt that my son is brainwashed. It’s heartbreaking and totally frustrating.
