Description

From Little Everywhere and hosted by Jane Marie, comes the third season of The Dream. Past seasons of this award-winning investigative podcast looked at pyramid schemes and the world of wellness. This season we're getting to know the gurus and life coaches who claim they know the secret to living our best lives. Is it all in our mindset? Or our privilege? Or are we all under a spell?

Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

We’ve all got that friend or cousin who steadily hawks some overpriced miracle drink, leggings, or shampoo on social media. They aren’t just trying to sell you something, but would like to offer you the opportunity of a lifetime to achieve riches while working from home on your own terms. You’ve probably been too afraid, or too loving, or too reasonable to confront them. Not us. This season on The Dream we go inside the world of multi-level marketing to expose this pyramid-shaped business model for what it is. Join us on this bizarre journey filled with snake oil salesmen, shifty millionaires, struggling single moms, and a few sweet grandmas.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Jesus Christ. The whole Regina George “Why are you so obsessed with me?” thing comes to mind. Jessie Lee or whatever is an embarrassment.

why does John Henry need a deep meaning? it's a great story about the triumph of the will, if not the body. I'll die with this hammer in my hand.

I stumbled upon this forum thread titled "The Dream," and I couldn't resist clicking on it. Dreams have always fascinated me, and I'm eager to see what this discussion is all about. https://citypages.pro/local-businesses/usa/new-york/new-york/10009/branded-sleeves-shop Dreams are such a mysterious and intriguing part of our lives. They can be filled with wonder, adventure, and sometimes even a touch of the surreal. I've had dreams that felt so vivid and real that I woke up with a sense of awe and curiosity. It's amazing how our minds can conjure up entire worlds while we sleep. https://cannabis.net/dispensaries/branded-sleeves-shop

I had the most extraordinary dream last night that I just had to share with all of you. It felt so vivid and real that I can't stop thinking about it. https://ny-brooklyn.cataloxy.us/firms/custompackagingnyc.com.htm In my dream, I found myself in a lush, enchanted forest with towering trees that seemed to touch the sky. The air was filled with the sweet scent of wildflowers, and the sunlight filtered through the leaves, creating a magical dance of light and shadow on the forest floor. https://advertisingflux.com/business-directory-2/nyc-packaging-solution/

it's great to hear an ex-couple be so gentle with each other even though they're no longer together. ❤️

girl I'm going to you some free & unsolicited advice, "accept the things you cannot change, the courage to change the things you can & the wisdom to know the difference "..dying is out of control knowing that can make each moment more visceral because it's all we really have, this moment. good luck!

Not for nothing…but the placebo effect is real. If someone believes their crystals work (Dan) then they probably will…at least somewhat.
