EFFINGHAM, IL—Local woman Karen Morales reported she was proud of herself for making close to $200 with her at-home makeup business last month, selling various makeup products to her friends from church.
According to sources close to Morales, however, she also spent $200 last month buying things from her friends' wide range of MLM businesses.
"It's really great to take control of my own life and become my own boss, so I can spend all that extra fun money on stuff my friends are selling to take control of their lives and become their own bosses," she told reporters. "I get to help women look their best and make a little slush money on the side. Then, I get to go to their homes so I can be pressured into buying weird cooking utensils I'll never use, fitness drinks that don't work, and essential oils that I could buy at Walmart for a whole lot less."
"We ladies have to stick together, so it's great that we can help each other out by selling each other stuff we don't need. It's an endless, beautiful circle of friendship," she added.
At publishing time, Morales was disappointed to discover that she had done the math wrong and actually spent $400 supporting her friends' businesses last month.
