I had a great LOL in that my recent post “Blatant Upline Lies” elicited a comment that up until 1998, Amway had created more millionaires than all other business combined, It was ironic that this blatant lie appeared appropriately in that thread. I’m pretty sure Wall Street has created more millionaires than Amway hands down. Amway IBOs and recruits assume that all of the diamonds are millionaires but they fail to see how a diamond lifestyle can be expensive to upkeep and diamonds may indeed be living in debt or check to check like many in the US.
We know that the owners of Amway have done well, being listed as billionaires. But how would anyone know who might be a millionaire in Amway. The diamonds don’t release their financial details and would likely tell you it’s none of your business if you asked for business related financials. So many indoctrinated IBOs and Amway apologists assume that diamonds are wealthy beyond belief but the fact remains that nobody really knows. Now I don’t think that there aren’t any millionaires in Amway but to think Amway created more millionaires that all other business combined up through 1998 is hogwash. Microsoft corporation itself probably created more millionaires than Amway during the same time frame if you count stock holders of which I am one.
Some years ago I was curious so I emailed a local hotel to ask how many diamonds were in attendance at diamond club when they were in Hawaii for that event. While I no longer have the email. I was told that 160 people were in attendance. That 160 included wives and kids. But hey, let’s assume they are all millionaires. 160 millionaires plus maybe a few who could not attend is more millionaires than all business combined through 1998? Seriously? Diamonds must teach these lies and sadly, prospects and IBOS believe it.
If the diamonds want to tell lies to strengthen their case for Amway, you’d think they could come up with a better story. Anyone ever wonder why there is seemingly a huge lack of Amway retirees as diamonds are forever in terms of working. They apparently work until they drop although they pitch early retirement as an enticement for people to join which I find humorous and ironic. 😎
