Vote with your dollar! Most of us have heard this phrase before, but how exactly do we do that? Today in Part 2 of our conversation, Bethany and I are discussing how we can be more mindful consumers and ways that we should think twice about where we invest our money. Last week, we talked about some of the ethical issues that MLM businesses present. Well, there’s a little more of that happening this week - but really, this is a much bigger conversation about being conscious consumers. To view the full show notes, continue reading here or visit my website: http://www.heartfelthippie.com (www.heartfelthippie.com) In Part 1, Bethany and I broke down how MLM structures actually work and why they can tow the line of…well, operating illegally. Today, we’re diving more into the ethical side of things! Until Bethany educated me on this, I had no idea that this type of business plan intersected with such topics as feminism or being a small business owner. We’re talking about that more in this episode and how we should proceed knowing this information - both as consumers and as potential entrepreneurs! Overall, Bethany’s biggest message isn’t that you should never buy from an MLM again. Rather, she’s an advocate for doing your own research and figuring out where we should invest our money so that it aligns with our values. No matter where you stand in your support of MLM businesses, I think you will learn a lot from this conversation. I promise that, and of course that you will love Bethany as much as I do!

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast! Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails, and we find out things about people we never knew we wanted to know. In season 2, Ron considers a run for President, continues to perform music, and blacks out at work. In Season 1, Ron addressed important issues like bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation, and attempted to ultimately answer the question “seriously, what is a podcast?”
