My Name is Diane, and I was first introduced to Amway in 2008. I was 20 at the time and working three jobs. I worked full time at Bergners Department store in the morning, part time at Bandana's BBQ Restaurant for part of the lunch rush and All of the dinner rush, and full time at Denny's Restaurant in the middle of the night. I admit Denny's was my favorite at the time. The people who go to Denny's in the middle of the night are fun. I always thought it would be drunk college kids, creepy old men who had nothing better to do but to hit on young girls but nope. It was usually yes the drunk college kids, but cute little old lady's, and Every Thursday a BIG group of people who would sit in the back room and talk about the joy of being a team and being a family and planning for the future and the future of there families and the plans they had for each other and the fact that no team works well unless it is unified. It was an amazing experience.They were never rude, never messy, usually only ordered waters, soda, ice cream, and the occasional fries or sandwich but they Always tipped amazingly!
I loved listening to this group on Thursday nights. The dream building they did for me without even knowing me was more than I can ever explain. The other servers would beg me to take them because they would "try to get you into there business." I thought it was funny that after helping them for about a year listening to the amazing people talk from all over the country. I remember one night they had this guy from Chicago come down with his wife and him and his wife talked about the fact that he was only in his 20's but next month he was planning on letting his wife stay home forever because she was "the most important thing to me in the entire world." To hear men talk about there wives like that was amazing!
All I knew about them was that they were some business team that were so team and family oriented that whatever they did couldn't be bad. I don't know about you but I have had a plenty of job's in my life and Never in my life have I seen a team of people talk about helping others with there families and there dreams of letting there wives be stay at home mothers.
One night I had to ask someone what they did. I asked a woman named Laura Sharp. That question changed my life forever! She and her husband asked me if I could take my break and talk for a few minutes. When we talked they told me that they worked with a company that helps people to reach there goals in life. It is not easy money, in fact sometimes it is really really hard. It would involve some sales but most of it is just re-directing the money that I am already spending at stores in my area on things I need to buy every month, such as toilet paper, soap, makeup, skin care products, Energy drinks (yes I said Energy drinks), to my own online store and the money that I have been spending at other stores I would now get paid for buying.
I was like DUH wow that is a NO brainer why hadn't I thought of that. Physical stores mark up prices so much that it would make since that if I buy things from my self I would get paid for it! Then I asked about why then come here and talk about the team, families and such.
Laura and her husband Justin then asked me if I could do One thing in my entire life what would it be? Money not being an issue what would it be...... That is a hard question to ask a 20 year old but I have always wanted to be a stay at home mom when I have kids. I would Love to be able to let my kids know that I am home for them and there friends and have my house be the house that everyone wants to come to not run from.
We talked and talked about goals and team building and the fact that, that is why everyone was there. To help each other reach there goals. Some want to buy houses, some want to travel, some want to help there parents, exc.... What do you want?
Like I said earler the other part to this business is sales. To have a business is having customers you have to have customers to have a business so for this blog I will put a number of my experiences with my products, pictures, videos, answer questions, whatever you would like to know please feel free to ask or call me and I would be more than happy to talk to you about.
This is my experience with Amway and I am more than happy to talk about it. I am not saying it has been easy. There have been months that I have not made money and there have been months that I have made just under 1000.00. It takes work! But I am willing to work. =) My Dreams are worth it!
