As an Amway IBO, I heard the phrase that Amway is simple. To be clear, I was told that Amway is simple, but not necessarily easy. The difference being that simple means uncomplicated, but not necessarily easy where it takes little effort. When you really think about it carefully, Amway really is simple. You buy and sell products and you attempt to "show the plan" in the hopes that others will also want to do the same thing that you are. It really is that simple.
If you are successful at moving volume and getting others to follow you, which hopefully increases your volume, then you make more money. But if Amway is so simple, it begs the question. Why is an endless amount of training heaped upon IBOs and prospects if Amway is so simple? Why is this training never ending? Why can't IBOs learn all they need to know in a single session? The answer is also very simple. Amway uplines make significant incomes from the sale of training materials, thus in order for their incomes to keep coming in, training cannot stop or the upline's income would also stop. It is also why Amway IBOs are told to never miss a meeting or functions. Or it is why IBOs are told that family or a job comes first, but in the same breath, upline says to sacrifice anything to meet their Amway obligations.
Think about it, if Amway is that simple, there is no good reason for a part time business to deman so much time and training. I won't even mention the overall lack of results which is why Amway attrition is so high. Upline profits from selling training. It really is that simple. Without the endless training, upline would suffer a massive loss of ongoing income and would difficulty in maintaining what they call a diamond lifestyle. But if you think about that also, you'll see that a diamond lifestyle is a life of debt and living check to check, diamond or not.
