Amway IBOs Are Successful!

Success is subjective. Someone making ten dollars might be considered successful. For others, nothing less than a barrel of cash will suffice. One other important point is that there are undoubtably some very successful people in Amway. I am sure that some Amway diamonds are quite well off and enjoy some of the finer things in life. But the reality is that these successes are very very rare and many of these success apparently are not sustainable as many people are led to believe. The more likely scenario is is an IBO making a few dollars a month while spending more than that on training. They are losing money but they think they are successful. The reality indicates otherwise.

But the bigger issue in the Amway opportunity is where the success comes from. Sure, many people want to "go diamond" and live in luxury while barrels of cash roll in. But what is unknown to many, is that the few who enjoy the lifestyle and trappings do so at the expense of their downline. The downline move the volume and the downline purchases the system materials, both of which is profitable for the upline. Because Amway products, admittedly are not commonly sold to people who are not IBOs, then anyone can conclude that upline success comes from the pockets of the downline. Most downline would be better off writing a check for $100 each month to their upline and not participating in the business or buying products at all.

This in itself would not be such an issue if the system actually churned out new successes frequently AND if the downline were not led to believe that the system is the key to their success. But less than one half of one percent of IBOs ever reach platinum and out of those who do, only a tiny fraction of one percent ever attain the diamond level. But the business has tens of millions of people who tried and could never achieve what was promoted. Lack of effort may be a factor, but when that many people try and fail, it's evident that the system is flawed as well. The rate of success is comparable to a lottery, which is sad when you consider that Amway is not a game of chance.

To summarize, it is possible for someone to achieve a level of success in Amway, but it is so difficult and so rare that IBOs probably have a better chance of winning the lottery or being struck by lightning than they do of achieving a significant level in the Amway business. Some people are successful, but it is usually at the expense of their downline. The catch is that uplines will teach their faithful downline IBOs that attending a function or buying a standing order is success, regardless of whether an IBO is earning a profit. So many IBOs think they're successful but they are simply fooling themselves with the help of their upline.

Success is undeniable, but sadly for the vast majority of IBOs, it is also unattainable, at least in the Amway opportunity.

You might want to do a little more research about AMWAY. Like talking to a Diamond, Double Diamond, Triple Diamond or a Crown. Or you can start by researching the products they sell. Take Artistry for example, this make-up line sells more than Chanel. Or maybe you can look at Nutrilite THE NUMBER ONE health product in the world. Nutrilite ALONE has made more than ANY other Direct Sales company did last year other than AVON. Which is Number One. AMWAY is number 2. So lets see some numbers shall we. 2012 top 3 direct sales companies net income from sales: No. 1 AVON $11.3 BILLION. No. 2 AMWAY $10.9 Billion. No. 3 Herbalife Ltd. $3.5 Billion. Lets look at some more numbers. How many sales people do they have? AVON 6.5 million. AMWAY 3 million. Herbalife 2.7 million. Wait a minute, you are saying all of the SUCCESSFUL people in AMWAY are making their money from the people under them. How about we see some math from you. I bet your math will not add up for one reason, if I.B.Os are giving that kind of money to AMWAY then why are they building a business with AMWAY? Lets have a look at something else. AVON has more than twice as many people selling their products than AMWAY has selling theirs yet AMWAY is only $400 million behind AVON? So now I have a question. Why do people say AMWAY is a scam but not AVON? I will admit only a tiny fraction of people are trully successful. But what fraction of people are at the top of any multibillion dollar company compaired to the amount of people who work for said company? If you want to be successful in YOUR BUSINESS ( a I.B.O. owns their own BUSINESS, hence Independent Business Owner) you have to treat it as a Business. Only a small percent of any population has this ability mentally. Most don't even realize they have this capability. They are not motivated enough to become sucessful in their business. A Up-Line that is motivated will give their Down-Line all the information they need to surpass them, the Down-Line chooses what they do with that information. And you go to the seminars and meetings to learn about how to be successful in any business even though they focus on AMWAY. Just to be clear there have been successful I.B.O.s who only went to a few seminars but never missed a meeting. The meetings are where you learn the plan and people skills, the 2 things you absolutely need. Remember knowledge is power. Hence the books. The more you read the smarter you get. That applies to any book. It is scientifically proven. So why not read books about becoming successful in your new business. The CDs are for motivation. Something every business owner needs. If you are a prospect I.B.O. and you have ANY questions respond to this post and I will teach you how to be successful in the AMWAY business. Success doesn't come instantly it takes time and hard work. Remember you have 90 days to get your $168 investment back and 180 days to get all of the money you spent on AMWAY products back. And future I.B.Os remember you have to make sales whether it is selling AMWAY products or selling a prospect their own potential. If you do not do that you WILL NOT be successful. I don't want to come off as sounding rude I just want to put some correct information out on the internet.

Sincerely wanting to help YOU,

A Future CROWN.

Good luck going crown. I had someone here before making the same claim. They have since quit Amway. LOL

You can brag about Amway's sales but take away IBO purchases and Amway is in the shithole. LOL

Amway is a scam because of the tools, and because Avon sales people sell products, They aren't lying and tricking people into attending recruitment meetins.
