The Amway Challenge?

I often hear stories and testimonies about how some people (usually newbies) have this incredible belief in Amway, their sponsors and their LOS, such as WWDB or Network 21. Being that many, possibly most IBOs are sponsored by a friend or family member, means that there is an inherent trust in the sponsor or upline. If that were not true, then we would likely see many more complaints about Amway and/or the uplines and lines of sponsorship.

But an important facet of being an IBO is to have a dream. Don't let "naysayers" steal your dream, is what many IBOs are told. But what is that dream? Is is a dream (a long term attainable goal) or a wish such as winning the powerball lottery? Many prospects and IBOs want to succeed. They are willing to work hard, and are very dedicated, I would say that these folks usually will end up failing, not for lack of effort, but for a flawed MLM/Amway system that cannot possibly reward more than a few. The famed 6-4-2, 6-4-3 or some other variation of the plan will illustrate that only 1 in 100 or so can be "platinum". And that's with nobody quitting. Factor in attrition and "do nothings" and it might be 1 in 200 who can reach platinum. Even if the whole world signed up for Amway, that fact doesn't change.

Do you really believe in Amway and your line of sponsorship such as WWDB or Network 21? If you truly believe in Amway and your metors, I challenge you to do one of these things. If you can't or won't, then I question your level of commitment. I question your belief. I'm not here to steal your dream. I am just challenging you.

Take your 6-4-2 or 9-4-2 or 6-4-3 plan to a loan officer at a bank and show them the plan. (Hey, it will help you be CORE) Ask the loan officer for their opinion of the plan and see if you can get a business loan based on the Amway plan. If not that, try seeking the advice of a real millionaire (Someone who has a net worth of a million bucks) and see if they think the 6-4-2 or other Amway (version) plans can work and whether they think Amway is a good idea. Heck, try asking your church Pastor. My church Pastor said Amway had too many false hopes and promises to be considered a viable business option.

How strong is your belief in Amway? Strong enough to take my challenge? Or will you ignore this and go on fooling yourself?

How much money have these folks made from Amway? Can you show some Amway bonus checks?

Those people listed who "think Amway works" are not Amway investors/distributors themselves. They are just cashing in on the fluctuating mlm interests with their own "seminars" and tools.

-Wasn't Kiyosaki in Amway? How'd that go? Plus, it has been suggested the popularity and actual publishing of his book, would not have been possible without AMOs. It has also been suggested he was not rich when he wrote his book about getting rich.
-Show us where Donald Trump specifically talks about Amway, and it being a good idea. I'm sure you meant to say that he said he supports MLM, as he opened his own MLM.
-John Maxwell is an author and pastor. His books are sold through Amway Motivational Organizations. He, like R.K., have a guaranteed market of book purchasers within the AMO circuit. Long after the general public has stopped reading their books, the IBOs will continue to read them, as part of 'suggested' reading.

If these millionaires think it is such a good idea, without ulterior motives, wouldn't they be IBO's themselves?

Not sure about Kiyosaki joining Amway. I heard that Kiyosaki was a struggling author until some diamond started promoting his Rich Dad book. Since then Kiyosaki made millions from Amway IBO's, but I don't think he's made any money as an IBO.

Trump I think owns an MLM so he supports it, but he's not an IBO. Big difference.

Maxwell profits from Amway IBO's purchasing his books but not by selling Amway products. Big difference again.

So it's not for you...no worries, don't taint it for others. I know some people who live fantastic lives because of Amway. It certainly wasn't easy as they were up against numerous "dream-stealers" but they have done very well. Leave it for people who want to be involved. As for the pyramid scheme, have a look at most privately owned businesses around. Aren't they all a type of pyramid scheme designed to make the owner rich in some way?
