About this Episode

Has a Hun or a Boss Babe ever slipped in your DMs promising a fantastic business opportunity? Are these women really living the She E O dream or have they Girl Bossed too close to the sun? MLM's or Multi-Level Marketing companies saw a spike in membership during the height of the pandemic when women were forced out of the job market. These companies are notoriously predatory and can slip by legal regulations leaving people high and dry, or more accurately in a warehouse full of moldy leggings.
