  • The Brutal Truth About Those Pyramid Schemes is an excellent article on what we as Team Beachbody Coaches and small business owners are trying to do.  My favorite line:  “…when you’re buying from a chain store, you’re helping contribute to the retirement of the millionaire or billionaire CEO. When you’re buying from a small business owner, you’re helping pay for that family’s groceries, you’re paying toward the electric bill … and you’re likewise contributing to someone’s ability to have more time with their children, their significant other or parents who may have fallen ill.”
