Hi everyone, JoeCool is back from vacation. I took a fabulous 2 week vacation in international locations and had the time of my life. Looking forward to another similar vacation nex year as well. And guess what? I paid for this trip with my J-O-B income and had sufficient time off to take the trip and recover from a little jet lag after. I'll be back a work in a few days but I've been off this blog for a while so I decided to update it.
It seems that no matter how much time passes, or what year it is, Amway hadly changes. What I mean is people (prospects) continue to be deceived by Amway IBOs about the Amway opportunity and about the income potential. Basically, Amway is ageless. If I had gone to sleep in 1996 (ala Rip Can Winkle) and woke up today, I would find that Amway and the Amway business is basically the same. Yeah, you can order online now but the basic premis of the business has not changed. What I mean is that the focus of the IBOs is still on recruiting and trying to get people to see the plan.
I still do not see much emphasis on actually selling Amway products by most IBOs. You know who does the most selling? The upline diamonds who sell IBOs voicemail, cds, seminar tickets, open meeting tickets and other tools that the diamonds profit handsomely from. I still can see that diamonds keep their tool profits on the down low as they don't want the sheep to get wise to the scam. hey think that the diamonds actually make their money from Amway but the truth is that a very significant income is made by diaonds elling tools. Think about it, the mark up on tools is much greater than the markup on Amway products and the tools income in only shared by the higher up Amway distributors, not with the rank and file.
People still quit Amway in hoards and most people quit presumably because the business wasn't "all that" and possibly because the IBOs were losing money because of tools and business expenses. Amway actually works as designed. It extracts money from downline in the form of product and tool purchases and funnels it up the organization (or pyramind) to the higher ups such as the diamonds and above). Whether you agree or not, that's what Amway is designed to do and that's exactly what happens. Even though I quit Amway around 20 years ago, not much appears to have changed. Amway is timeless.
