Multi-Level Massacre

Mindy's relatives are into a stupid scheme again. What can she say to get them to back out?

QUESTION: Mindy’s dad and sister are involved in their fifth get-rich-quick scheme in the last couple of years. Can she say anything to get them to see that these are not working?

ANSWER: When you go in there and say that it’s not working, it becomes an intervention. That’s hard to pull off, and this is a socially acceptable disease that these people have. It just hurts your heart to watch people you love do stupid stuff, and there's not much you can do. If they bring it up to you, then say that. You’re not being negative, but the majority of people who join these things don’t win. Try hard work and a long term game plan. Scripture says he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished. Get-rich-quick doesn’t work. When your mind and value system works that way, thinking you can do things quick and easy and make money, things you try to do will crumble. It happened with me when I was younger.
