"Hey, Hun is a blunt, illuminating peek inside the multilevel marketing industry's exploitation of people's vulnerabilities--in particular, those of women who have been told that they can have it all. With some names fictionalized to protect people's identities, it identifies multilevel marketing companies as pyramid schemes and cults and shows how they rope their victims in, using tools like white privilege, evangelical Christianity, and gaslighting."--Erika Harlitz Kern "Foreword Reviews"
"If sunlight is the best disinfectant, HEY, HUN throws open the curtains! Emily Lynn Paulson's insider take on 'girl boss' culture brings transparency to an opaque world and offers real-life insight into the difficult choices women face when realigning our work with our values. A riveting read."--Becky Vollmer, empowerment expert and author of You Are Not Stuck

HEY, HUN delves into the underbelly of how women are targeted to feed a deeply patriarchal system under the guise of empowerment.

"This book is a must-read for all women, especially those struggling with the deep ache to belong, be successful, or feel their self-worth. HEY, HUN is at once a cautionary tale, an educational service, and a vulnerable memoir. It's essential reading for anyone considering joining, trying to escape, or healing from the toxic, culty structure that is MLM."--Sarah Edmondson, actress, host of A
