Control Of Time And Money?

One of the things that uplines do when recruiting new IBOs is to talk about how jobs are dead end, that someday you may be fired, that you have no control of a job, or that you are never paid what you are worth. They convince you that working a job is a crime and tha your boss probably works the longest hours. They may even say that those who make good money working a job often works so much that they don't have time to enjoy it. My former upline used to say that true freedom is the control of time and money. .

What I was also told that that in the real world, generally the guys who have enough money are usually so busy working that they don't have time. Or that a broke guy who's got time on his hands is broke so he can't do much of anything. That's when they would convince prospects that only through Amway can you have both. You can have both time and money. You build it right and build it once, and the (Amway) business will pay you for the rest of your life. That's how it was presented to me and looking back, it was a total lie. I have a challenge for any IBO or Amway defender. Amway's been around for more than 50 years. Can anyone name a dozen people who have actually built an Amway business and then stopped workig it but continued to collect a significant income that was actually passed onto their heirs? Can anyone name even one or two? Keep in mind that tens of millions of people have come and gone through the business. Also keep in mind that Amway doesn't make these claims. Maybe someone should ask Amway?

It makes me wonder why crown ambassadors don't even walk away and collect money forever. These crown ambassadors are all old and have been around forever yet they continue to work their groups and attend all the functions. Sure, maybe their day to day lives aren't as busy as a 9-5 employee with young kids, but still it makes me wonder why not even double diamonds and above (as far as I know) have exercised the option to walk away and enjoy mountains of residual cash rolling in. I also wonder why there are stories of diamonds quitting and resigning if there was an option to walk away and enjoy lifelong residual income. We also know that diamonds fall out of qualification and we know that many platinums fall out of quallification, providing ample evidence that an Amway business is unstable and that without constant attention, your business is likely to fall apart.

Let me close with this. We know that a typical platinum business has about 100 or more downline IBOs. That doesn't include those who quit. Thus a platinum is already in the top 1% of all Amway businesses and that platinums might not even make that much net income when considering that platinums have many expenses which may include eating losses on tools refunds for the upline diamonds.

Yes, true financial freedom is having complete control of time and money. The problem is that very few people ever achieve financial freedom but it would appear that even fewer Amway business owners achieve that same financial freedom because of the Amway opportunity. Also, showing pictures of mansions and sports cars is not proof of financial freedom.

It's almost pointless to ask a genuine question like this.

The canned response is easy.

"We do it because we love your tool money, er, you so much that we just feel an obligation to keep giving back to you."

my ass

The first paragraph just summarized my situation. Thanks for doing so. True lifestyle freedom is all about the control of time and money. I now believe more in Amway. Keep it up!

If even one retired and financial free Diamond, Double Diamond or Crown existed they would no doubt be glorified and used as publicity by IBOs to convince people to join.
The sad fact is that they do not exist. Once you finally build the business to Diamond level you will be constantly trying to motivate and encourage people to stay in the business and sponsor even though most will be losing money. You are also expected to do speaking engagements at high priced functions for which you are paid for all this while supplementing your average 'Active' Diamond $144,000 income (before expenses)with the sale of useless "business tools". As far as we know there are only approximately 400 active Diamonds and above world wide out of a total of 4000 that have qualified over the last 40 years.
What Ambots are all brainwashed to believe is definitely NOT even close to Reality.

Hey 100K Strong, Why don't you let us all know exactly how you have acquired control of time and money through the Amway business.

100K Strong aka Anon from Scarborough Canada, you can believe all you want but you're still losing your ass in Amway. Feel free to prove me wrong.

Amway will give you less time and money and there is no proof whatsoever that it will set you free from the shackles of the workaday world.

Expensive products and millions of dissatisfied former IBO's who can't all be wrong are a losing combination.

Elephant alert! Just what the hell is wrong with a 40 hrs a week job anyway? When did jobs become evil? They became evil when amway came along. How sad.

I am very blessed to have a job and with benefits, no less. Thank God for my employer.

Ever heard 'if a man shall not work, he shall not eat?'

Joecool, I love lo lose my ass in Amway as you say because the dream is surreal and so are the results I am getting. I'm not turning back, I'm going all the way!
Anonymous, you have no control of your personal and financial freedom with a job. It can be taken away from you at any time the employer wishes and you go down to zero. I have known about that even before I first saw Amway, I haven't learned it from Amway. Jobs are for the lazy visionaries who are delighted to live an average life with the knife at the throat. They don't know what awaits them or do but are in self denial 'oh, i'm ok, it can never happen to me!' You know, that kind of mentality at work. Have you ever heard of Proverbs 10:4? Here it is, 'Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth.' Joecool, this quotation applies to you too.

You think you are secure in Amway? Ask those TEAM diamonds how secure they are?

If I lose a job I can find another one. Name one person who lost a diamond ship and was able to build another one.

Why don't you prove you are profitable in Amway? Maybe then I'll stop blogging.

As I suspected you chose to spew more brainwashed Ambot crap instead of answering my question.
I asked you to tell us all exactly how you have acquired control of time and money through the Amway business. The sad fact is you only dream that you will acquire control of time and money so the only thing you can do is repeat the junk your upline have told you, the crap you are brainwashed to believe. Prove you are profitable in Amway.

My acquired control of time and money through the Amway business is non-transferable to anyone. Magic of flu-like is not the hallmark of Amway. You son desperately long for control of time and money through the Amway business? Get to work or shut up!

Joecool said...

Yeah, you haven't even transfered control of time and money to yourself. Are you still working for minimum wage at the bank?

100K Strong! said...

Who cares... :)

Joecool said...

I bet you care everytime you see your tiny paycheck and an even tinier Amway bonus check.

100K Strong! said...

Nope... :)

Joecool said...

So you enjoy being broke? :-)

Someone from the Royal Bank in Toronto visited my blog today. I checked and that's not far from Scarborough. Is that where you work anonymous?

Uh, 100K, seriously?

Would you be willing to make that 'lazy' remark to the guys up on roofs all day in the boiling sun laying tile?

Let me guess, you're white *pansy-ass* collar
