What's Better Than Amway?

One of the humorous things that IBOs say on my blog is if Amway isn't such a great deal, then why don't we offer a better solution? I guess it's not enough that there are facts and experiences posted here so that information seekers can find and make informed decisions about joining or not joining Amway, but we must also suggest better options? Well, I will offer some. While I am not advising anyone to listen to my thoughts, nor do I think you should act on what you read what's here without doing your own due diligence and your own soul searching, here are my opinions on what may be better than Amway:

1. Be a better steward of the money you already have. Many people have enough income but simply channel too much of it to things they don't need. A daily $5 cup of starbucks for example. Disciplined saving and investing.

2. Get a second job and set aside a portion for saving and investing. You will not only have more discretionary cash, but also more to be able to set aside for your golden years.

3. Start your own small business. The biggest issue with Amway, in my opinion is the endless supply of training that uplines sell. It causes most "serious" IBOs to end up with a net loss. You can find a niche product and sell it on ebay or craigslist, unlike Amway products. Another type of small business might be something like learning to do minor household repairs or installing hardwood flooring. These kinds of services are quite common and can be lucrative.

4. Do nothing. Since most business building IBOs lose money, doing nothing, although comical, actually makes you better off than losing money because of functions and standing orders.

5. Spend more time with your family. Ironically, many IBOs have this as a goal, but actually spend less time with family because of Amway related activities.

There you have it folks. There are some ideaas of what might be better than spending your time and money participating in the Amway business and the Amway motivational organizations. While these are only ideas, only you can decide what is best for you and your family. In whatever you decide to do, I wish you well.

Amway is just an MLM company. There are several hundreds more out there. Amway is a unilevel compensation plan which is good "if" you can build it big. A lot of other MLM's are going to a "binary" comp plan which is more lucrative in the beginning stages of the business. Also a lot of them pay bonuses on recruitment and Amway technically doesn't. Amway IBOs twist this recruitment bonus as if it's an obvious sign of a scam, when in fact IBO's get this too in a more subtle way, b/c when a new IBO starts, they get 100pv which means income for the upline if the upline is at a different % bracket. So what's better than Amway? Just to name a few... Avon, Mary Kay, Organo Gold, First Financial, TelexFree, the list goes on and on. They are better for a person starting out with no experience. Granted the training is tops in Amway, but you're gonna spend a leg and arm for it before you even make a profit and then you'll have to play catch up just to break even.
