OPP: Friend's Sales Pitch


Today’s OPP,

My best friend has been recruited by one of the get rich quick companies that con foot soldiers into believing they have an unbelievable product and get them to do all of their marketing and selling for them. She really believes that what she is selling will change the world…but it won’t. I have no problem that she’s trying to make some extra money, but it’s all she talks about and she posts about it on Facebook all day. She tries to sell me on it all the time and I am not interested! She says that I just don’t understand how amazing a product it is and I’ll come around one day. It’s getting to the point that I’m avoiding her calls because I don’t want to hear about it anymore. She is my best friend and I don’t want to lose her friendship but I can’t listen to one more sales pitch. How do I get her to stop?

Slacker’s broker friend tried to sell him one night by asking him who his broker was and Slacker stood up to him by basically telling him to be his friend or try to be his broker but he couldn’t be both.  Steve says (regarding today’s OPP) that as friends she should know not to try and sell to another friend. It’s just not something you do.

What advice do you have for Jackie?

I don’t think you should mix business with pleasure when it comes to friends.  Jackie’s friend may be excited, but she seems a little delusional and entirely too consumed with her product or business venture that it’s taking over their friendship.  Jackie has even told her “no” so she should understand that she’s crossing this boundary that shouldn’t really be crossed.  

Stay classy!
