I’ve seen these kinds of businesses on TV, radio and on the internet and I never really believed that you can actually be truly successful and always thought that it wasn’t a career. When my friend endorsed Purity 12 to me, I definitely gave her my piece and told her that you can’t gain anything from it and she’s just wasting her time and energy. But now, she’s laughing at me because I had to take it all back after trying one of their products. Now, I’m paying my apartment rent with the money I earn from Purity 12! It’s a great opportunity that I’m glad I didn’t miss.
