Amway - IBOs Living in Denial?

So many IBOs are hard working and dedicated to their business. However, I believe they are simply living in denial. Most of them, even the hardest working IBOs are more than likely losing money, due to the system expenses. The system generally consists of voicemail, standing order, book of the month, meetings and functions.

When I was an IBO, I was losing money or braking even at best, but I always spoke about my "gross" income and did not mention the mounting costs of the system. I did as my upline taught, you see. I just figured I was helping others who would eventually copy me and we would all progress towards financial freedom and walking the beaches of the world. However, in retrospect, I see that I was just fooling myself and living in denial.

I believe there are still many IBOs out there showing the plans and working the system only to end up month after month with a net loss. I am writing this article hoping that some IBO will see it and be able to relate to what I experienced. I jut wish someone had spoken some sense into me sooner. It's easy to get sucked into the system because you are normally sponsored by someone know know and trust. But your sponsor is more than likely "NOT" trying to rip you off, but simply teaching what upline teaches. It's upline, in my opinion whose greed has ruined the business opportunity with their self serving advice. I hope this article helps some IBOs.
