"Becoming a shareholder allows you to purchase stock at a discount" - relative to what? Because pretty much everybody that purchases stock is a shareholder. So that's confusing and if that's part of how they're selling you on it, maybe a red flag.

Also, make sure you understand how she sells her shares - if she leaves, if she stays and wants to sell, if the company is acquired or mergers, etc.

$50k seems rather light ime but how big is the company? If they are doing well seems like a no brainer given the dividends and promotional opportunities.
