Building Your Amway Upline's Dreams?

One of the issues I have with the Amway plan is that the newest IBO, possibly the one who does the most "Work", receives the smallest compensation. Amway pays about 32% of their income back in the form of bonuses. An IBO who does 100 PV receives a 3% bonus and somewhere, uplines and sponsors receive the rest. Some of the upline may not have even met the IBO who actually did the work. Is that really fair and is that a level playing field? What do some of these uplines do to deserve the lion's share of the bonus you worked to get? Yes, the upline diamond may show the plan in an open meeting, which may help you, but then again, you pay for entrance into that meeting. You also put in the effort to move that volume. And your upline will always get a portion of you bonus, simply because they signed up before you.

Many uplines will talk about dreams and fulfilling your dreams. But if an IBO would stop and think for a moment, you can easily see that you are building the dreams of your upline, and not your own. You receive a tiny portion of the bonus for the volume that you move, and then in addition, if you are on the system, then you are also paying upline in the form of tool purchases for the priviledge of giving them bonuses with your product purchases. You can eventually cash in too, if you can get enough downline to move volume and absorb the losses that you currently experience.

It is why your upline diamonds can parade around on stage with designer suits and show you their fancy cars and mansions and other toys. It is because they are cashing in on your efforts. You are making their dreams come true. Your dedication to moving volume and purchasing standing orders are fulfilling dreams. The upline dreams. Yes, someday you can hope to have your own group of downline to exploit for your own benefit, but unless you are constantly adding members to your group, you will never achieve the kinds of dreams that uplines talk about. In the meantime though, you are definitely helping someone upline achieve their dreams with every function you attend. Ironically, the upline leaders will tell you to never quit, even if they don't know your personal circumstances.

Here's a challenge for IBOs and/or prospects who are being recruited into the Amway business. 100 PV will cost around $300 a month and dedication to the tools system will cost you around $200 to $300 a month on average. Would you not be better off simply writing a check to your upline for $100 and not even joining? Would you not be better off staying home and watching television instead of joining? If you read all of the information available on this blog and still decide to join, goo d luck to you, but remember this: Whose dreams are being fulfilled by your participation? Yours or your upline?

Interesting that you mention someones name after they post anonymously...you demand anonymity online yourself! u do everything in your power to hide, then you lie about NOT hiding...then you go and try and reveal anonymous posts on your blog!!!...are you really surprised people don't comment much here any more joe?? You are out of control!! what an effing hypocrite u r!!?

Joecool said...

What's up Ohein? Getting happered at scam so you came here? Why not mention your name unless you're hiding something? I told you I'm known by friends. If you were trustworthy, then you would know my real identity too. BTW, by publishing your comment, it's telling how much your pal Chris lies about me deleting comments. I could easily dump your comment, but instead I post it and respond.

When are you coming to visit me in Honolulu? I know a place that makes great burgers.

The greedy selfish uplines only think about themselves. They are making 80% of their income from the motivational business called BRITT WORLDWIDE through books, cds, seminars, meetings and functions. They lie and deceive their downlines and also exaggerate about the income they can make. The way the business is conducted is like a vampire cult where these blood sucking theives are brainwashing their downlines.

I think your post is probably accurate. I don't think all diamonds make 80% of their income from tools but I'll bet some certainly do.
