Dream Night Dishonesty
I see there are some blogs around about Dream Night and some IBO’s saying that the event is sold out when others are finding out there are still tickets for sale.
I haven’t the slightest idea why some IBO’s cagily avoid answering when asked what the cost is for Dream Night tickets, directing people to look on the World Wide Destructive Bastards website. According to some bloggers that information is not available to outsiders for viewing. No purchase WWDB premier membership = no password to view top secret information on their website.
Lying about whether or not an event is sold out is a little weird. I mean really who cares. But lying is all part of playing the Amway game pretending things are going good when the reality is the IBO is drowning in credit card debt, has no outside customers, and no downline. Fake it till you make it. “Business is going great” is a standard IBO response.
So what’s the big secret about how much tickets costs?
Back in 1994 the Eagles were doing their Hell Freezes Over reunion concert tour. I managed to get tickets - $95 apiece. Around the same time tickets for the Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge tour went on sale and I also purchased two - $35 apiece. My husband wanted to know why there was such a big difference in price. I pointed out the Eagles are a better band so their tickets cost more. In actuality it may have had more to do with the venues. The Rolling Stones were in a larger stadium, more people more money. I have no problem saying how much I paid for tickets if I can actually remember. For some reason those two concerts stick out in my mind.
It seems to be a big dark secret how much Dream Night tickets cost this year. Two years ago the tickets cost either $65 or $75 I just don’t recall which but there you have it within $10.
I don’t understand why IBO’s can’t reply honestly: “My Dream Night ticket cost $75. The price might be different in the town where your function is being held. Would you like me to look into that for you?”
Sounds easy enough. Just like someone from another part of the country will say: “Hey I shelled out two hundred bucks for my ticket to see the Eagles.”
We weren’t even allowed to buy our own tickets to Dream Night. We had to tell the Platinum sack of shit how many tickets we wanted well in advance, give him the cash, and he bought them. Its my guess he got some free seats based on how many tickets he sold and was pocketing the excess cash.
has some insight on why the upline wanted to handle all the Dream Night transactions instead of letting the downline buy through the web page and will leave a comment. Tex
I’ll write more about Dream Night another time. I just want to find out:
1. why the ticket price is such a deep dark secret.
2. why IBO’s direct people to the WWDB site to find out how much a ticket costs when that information is unable to be viewed.
3. why lie about whether or not the event is sold out?
