How do I politely tell my friend I don't want to be involved in the pyramid scheme they want me to be a part of? They were looking out for me, but the business they want me involved in seems dubious and illogical. I don't have a job, but the way this mentorship program seems to work is you have to recruit people to get to the next level, and the more people you bring into it the more money you make, and more entrepreneurial advice they give you. I don't know what to do.
It is a very awkward feeling to turn down a pyramid scheme by a friend, but you have to do it and do it firmly. I have had to do this two or three times in my life so far. It gets easier with practice. Your friends are not looking out for you, they are looking out for themselves, because they are looking for more people to get into the scheme so they can move up. Say no thank you to watching a video about it, looking at a catalogue, refuse to have anything to do with it. Say you are not interested. Repeat that every time they bring it up, you can be kind and smile and change the subject. If they get on your nerves tell them, you already said no and would you please stop bringing it up. One lady I knew was so pushy about it I ended up avoiding her for awhile and she got the idea and dropped the subject. Do not purchase anything they are selling to help them out, I have done that, and it was not worth it. Learning to say no is an important life lesson, you can do it!
