Sister Wives' New Business

Recommended Posts

Kitchen Princess

It appears that their "new business" is an Anytime Fitness franchise? Is that correct? Anybody know which one?

interesting, considering none of them look particularly fit, aside from maybe robyn. i mean, shouldn't you start a business about something you're interested in and passionate about?

then again, i suppose in this economy you do whatever you need to do to make money.

I know the wives are working out, etc. So, if they are successful it will be good advertising for their gym. Also, they can sell before and after pictures to magazines. Why isn't Kody working out and airing his weight, is what I would like to know.

I hear that is kind of a pyramid scheme. If it is, I bet it was Kody's idea and not Janelle's. He needs to embrace the idea that she is smarter.

Janelle may be the smartest one of the group but if she's OK with this whole "gym" business then I question her business sense. Those Anytime Fitness, Snap Fitness, etc. 24 Hour type places are all over the area I live in and if you drive by any given day at any given time they are all empty! I just think it's sort of overkill in this industry. I personally think they'd be better off on real estate. That market will eventually improve, especially in warmer climate's like Vegas. I sincerely doubt the Browns will be running a 24 Hour gym for the next 10-20 years.

A few eps ago I heard one of them mention getting into the gym business with Bill the trainer. Then tonight when I watched the latest episode, they were clearly at an Anytime Fitness (logo on the wall). I'm just putting two and two together.

I believe Bill may have the franchise and the Brown's are buying in.

I'm an AF member, and our gym does pretty well. The busiest times are after 8 p.m. and between 5-7 a.m. So I go at 8. :) I wanted to see what gym the Browns are talking about because you can meet people from your gym on anytimehealth.com. Wanted to do a little stalking. lol. (just kidding)

I'm obese but I go to the gym regularly like clockwork. I feel really antsy when I miss it. I'm not a gym rat. I put in my time and then gladly leave it behind. But you can't assume that people aren't passionate about going to the gym just by looking at them.

i'm not going simply by the way they look, though i didn't quite imply that. i was also considering their eating habits [gotta eat right to fuel your body right] and that during the show i don't think i've ever heard them say anything about exercising or going to the gym, save for that one episode where they all went, which i think could totally be a setup by tlc [wouldn't be the first time it has happened].

I think it's a new passion/hobby rather than something they always did, that's why it wasn't on the show before.

Meri has said something about feeling guilty if she ever spent time on herself, and now she's trying to allow herself to change that. Not a unique problem for moms, but probably exacerbated in their lifestyle (traditional gender roles and so many kids to take care of).

3 is enough

Yes, they are selling some sort of supplements, and it does seem like a pyramid scheme.

I live in Las Vegas. My 19-year old son plays hockey in a men's league. One night one of his team mates gave him some samples of supplements "sold by the Sister Wives on TV". They were little packets that you were supposed to add to a water bottle. One was for "before the game", and one "after the game".

Why couldn't Janelle just continue her Utah business of designing/selling pantry systems? Wasn't that part of what she did before the move? Perhaps there is not enough of a market among people who don't stock a year's worth of food, but I would think she could do something to tweak the idea for Nevadans.

I know it was geared towards LDS with their food storage, but she could just tweak it to customing closets, etc.

Vegas is full of mainstream LDS who do take the food storage thing seriously - but I don't think they would buy from a polygamist. Just my opinion (I'm former LDS, and lived in Vegas while practicing)

My family is LDS and they are very put off by the whole polygamy thing. Denial, denial, denial, in my family's case, of the past. I didn't know that LV had a large LDS population. Interesting and seems odd to me. Sin City and all that.

Vegas has always had a good sized Mormon population I believe. Howard Hughes was surrounded by them in his last years.

I'm not surprised about the Sister Wives being involved in a MLM type scheme. I have heard numerous stories about AUB/Mormon fundamentalists being involved in MLM schemes.

they also have a large christian population as well. there are TONS of churches, and i'm not counting the little wedding chapel places that exist just for marriages, i mean real, community-type churches.

I have a friend who lives there and all I hear about is how hot it is, the hookers, and unemployment. I am always surprised that people live there voluntarily. Then again, I hate hot weather with a passion.

Yes on the LDS in Vegas. My LDS cousin lives in both Vegas and Utah and says there are major differences between them, not so much doctrinally as culturally.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.

      While in bed, two ants appear on my arm. Instead of approaching this logically, I spray the ant spray straight behind my nightstand.
      Unventilated.
      Immediately. Don't do that.
