When I was an IBO, I was in WWDB. I remember many questionable things that were said and taught by some of the upline leaders. I heard that Amway saves marriages, that diamonds pay cash for everything, including homes. I heard that NOBODY made a red cent off of the tools systems. Quit your job if you can't get time off for a function. Okay to sink yourself into debt if you are using the money for buying more tools.
Many of the things said and taught by these WWDB leaders were either lies or very unethical in my opinion. Well, as a wise man once said, a house built on sand will not survive the test of time. I have been out of Amway for over ten years and have done much with my life since then. But time has exposed the apparent hypocrisy and falsehoods told by some WWDB leaders.
Diamonds in bankrupcty, diamonds failing to pay their mortgages (homes paid in cash?), diamonds quitting, diamonds divorcing, revisionist history. I believe as more time passes, more hypocrisy will be exposed. Now an Amway apologist might claim that a diamond's divorce or home foreclosure is nobody's business. While that might be true, I do not believe it applies when you stand on stage and/or sell tapes/cds proclaiming that Amway saves marriages, or that you pay off your homes in cash, unlike "broke" people who need mortgages.
Here's a small sampling of links, exposing the utter hypocrisy of these leaders:
