Recently, every once a week or two, someone leaves some kind of humorous, yet somewhat rude comments. These comments may claim I'm lying, without identifying what I lied about. Or they will claim I'm wrong, without citing what I"m wrong about. Often, the comment is made and the person making the comment never returns to explain. Sort of like a "drive by shooter". It would actually be good for someone defending Amway to actually make a good case as to why they think Amway is a good business opportunity because the actual facts, many of which come directly from Amway, indicate that Amway is a crappy business opportunity and likely some kind of scam.
We know that uplines can make significant profits from selling CDs, functions and other training materials so of course they will tell downline that these items are the "key" to success. But to say it at a function with thousands of people is a scam in my opinion, because that person hasn't analyzed everyone's individual business to be able to make that claim. I've heard upline compare a function to a buffet, where you take what you want and go with it. That's total BS. Most IBOs have no business experience and wouldn't know what to take and what to leave behind at a function.
Amway must be defended because in my opinion, the vast majority of people figure out that it's a crappy business opportunity and blogs like mine, provide practical and real life experiences that are detrimental to Amway prospects. That's why the income disclosures, the prices of products and other things must be justified. Things such as many IBOs do nothing and that's why the average income is low. Well I might add the Amway "millionaires" are also a part of that average income and the average is still low. The high prices are justified by "quality" or "concentration", but only Amway people consider Amway products to be premium and only Amway biased people think Amway's price per use is a good deal. For example, Satinique shampoo costs like $8-10 for 10 ounces and I can get shampoo at Walmart for $3 for 24 ounces. But Amway folks twist it so it seems that Amway is still a good deal. The vitamins are the worst bargain. You can find equivalent vitamins to Nutrilite for a small fraction of the price.
How about actually making money from Amway? THe vast majority of IBOs on the system, lose money because of the system. Amway defenders use lines like "everyone who succeeded was on the system". My answer? Tens of millions made nothing or lost money because of that same system. I can counter by saying every lottery winner bought a ticket. Just because there's a few winners doesn't mean Amway or the lottery are good ideas, but at least buying a lottery ticket doesn't take up a lot of time and effort like Amway.
So defending Amway is futile and only Amway supporters buy the guano that defenders use to defend Amway. I have yet to see anyone use a good argument with evidence that Amway is a good business opportunity. And I have yet to see even one example, with actual evidence of someone who built Amway, went diamond, "walked away" and collected large residual income while they lounged on the beached of the world. Defending Amway is as futile as building an Amway business. That is something you can bank on.
