I arrived and got the meeting going. I was on fire! All went well as I introduced and talked about the new company and its benefits. The crowd was all ears (they were even comfortable with the “one time out of pocket” cost to get involved). Great so far, And Then…
It happened. A big percentage of the crowd turned on me like rabid dogs.And the others? They just flat walked out.
It happened in a flash! They started shouting and chanting. Ponzi, Pyramid, Ponzi, Pyramid. I almost wanted to crawl under the podium(and would have if I could have pulled my hands away from my ears) the chanting was deafening. If there were tomatoes around I would have surely been pelted, and I shiver to think what would have taken place if the crowd (now turned mob) would have had a rope handy!
