Amway Food For Thought?

One thing that I was unaware of as an Amway IBO was that our uplines were profiting handsomely from our tools purchases. I was in WWDB at the time and I was told very clearly that nobody made any money from the tools, and in fact, I was also told that WWDB was a non profit organization. Both of these statements were bold lies told by WWDB leaders and they have never been held accountable. We were told that upline cared about us and our success, thus they spent their own money to fly to functions to teach us how to succeed. Looking back, the lies told by the WWDB leaders were shameless.

Eventually, the internet amd other media (i.e. The Dateline Expose') made it impossible to cover up these lies and uplines finally admitted that they profited from tools. However, it looks like they downplayed the magnitude of the tools profits. I believe some upline may have made most of their income from tools, especially leaders who may have fallen out of qualification. Now the upline admits they make some profits from tools, but there is still a great deal of secrecy in the tools business. What makes the whole thing ironic is that the uplines allegeldy are not supposed to entice Amway prospects into joining by using the tools money as a draw, but at the same time, they are told that tools are vital to their success.

I wonder how many prospects or IBOs would be fired up about buying tools if they knew that their uplines might not currently be qualified at the level they claim to be, and knowing that the uplines will make a ton of money whether or not you make a cent as an IBO? Also, some uplines are shameless is pushing the tools on downline. Sure they might cut the newest guy a break and loan them some cds, but once that IBO decides to start building downline, they are likely to be told that a real business owner buys their own tools, or that a business owner needs to be a leader and purchase extra tools for their downline.

How would you feel if your upline is touting themselves as a financial genious but in the background, their homes are foreclosed or they have financial difficulties? What if your upline touts their morals and you find out they are divorced or getting a divorce? What if your upline said Amway saves marriages? Your upline certainly won't say they are perfect, but conversely, they should be held to the highest standards if they are using their status to be able to sell tools and make large profits.

Many Amway prospects and IBOs don't know this, but maybe they do now.

Send me your e-mail I am in Network 21 team and I really don't knows how told you lies but I can refer 2 or 3 Materials which I bought that explains clearly how material bring monetary fund to the speaker
And they should bring it truly you are just ignorant if you think a competitive market will tell you for free how they succeed.
Thinking about that ignorant through about they should give it for free my Diamond should not care to much after second platinum deep in his team. His monetary incomes from me to him if I succeed they are directly connect to his platinum so he gets almost nothing why he should make the efforts?

My contact information is on my profile on this blog.

FYI, your diamond makes money from you whether his tools or advice helps you or not.

Just because he shows you a document, it doesn't mean anything. Did he show you his (business) portion of his tax return? That's the document that would explain most everything. Of course he didn't show you that.
