I have been looking for part-time work at home for a couple years now and came across a great, well I thought great, nutrition teaching job yesterday. I was so excited as this was going to allow me to teach people how to become healthy, yay, right up my alley.
I e-mailed the guy and we scheduled a phone interview and the interview was going great and all I could think was “how cool to be able to teach on my own time again, and help others.” Well that did not last more than 30 minutes. Then the word “supplement” came out of his mouth and he said “this is how we earn our money and you can make up to 50% profit on sales. Really…seriously…this is not a nutrition class this is a selling job, argh! I don’t mind selling the right things but I cannot every say that diet supplements is the right thing.
Why would I go on such a venture to do my weight loss naturally, without supplements, and then turn around and try to make money of them? I cannot morally do that even though the money was sweat. Besides diet supplements come out daily and are typically not FDA approved and I would never want to be responsible for someone having horrible side effects from something I am selling them. I guess I have too much of a conscious to do that.
Other issues are that typically when people use supplements for weight loss they do not keep the weight off after they are done taking them and then have to go back on them. No medication whatsoever is safe to take for the rest of your life. This is why we have so many small lawyers making a killing off of the drug industries anymore.
Anyway, so I said no. Bummed that it is not what I thought but feel great because I stuck to my morals and my own personal journey. Guess I will keep looking!
