Am i right or wrong?

ok so im a consultant for tupperware.. well i posted earlier on one of my groups that i was helping moms make money for the holidays by throwing parties and giving the profit to them.. and i got an email saying i need to remove this and that it was advertising.. this email was from a mom not cafemom... she sounded pissed in her wording..

am i wrong for trying to be nice and help and say there will be no contact if desired.. i deleted it from that group but i still have it elsewhere and nothing else has been heard..

i truely arent trying to market.. why do some people not understand that.. im just trying to be nice.. there is a lot of money that can be made without being stuck with the company to sell...im so bothered by this..

does anyone else think im bad for doing this???

  • I wouldn't post it in a group...just maybe on the main board?...

  • No I think you're doing a nice thing trying to help other families for Christmas. At the same time, a lot of groups will see that as advertising so maybe you can check with the group owners before posting? Be sure to explain what you are doing.

  • If the mom that emailed you was not an Admin or Group Owner just ignore her.

  • She is likely just pissed that you are undercutting and putting her out of business. In MLM, for the most part-you can sell and promote your business any way you like. Ignore it. I do this all the time, and yes it pees other consultants off when I get the business and they don't. Tough-free country last time I checked.
