This month we are teaming up with igotout.org, throughout the month of November, follow along with us as we share education, survivor stories and ways you can join in on the movement. Each episode this month will include stories of cult survival, including the abuses described in Dr Steven Hassan's BITE Model. This episode in particular deals with covert abuse, along with a variety of triggering subject matter, including suicide and mental health crisis. Please use discretion when listening.
Michelle and Paul spent 10 years in Britt World Wide, a cult inside Amway that controlled every aspect of their life, including the level of communication they had with each other. Though their stories are very different from each other, they are the same, woven together as they recount the early days as teenagers with thriving Amway businesses and a hustle they haven't lost in their life after MLM.
