Amway and the Holidays!

I again appoligise for taking so long to do another post. I had open brain surgery, Yes I am doing fine and YES I still got a check from Amway every month. There have been some comments about how much money you need to spend to do LTD and Amway, as well as the amount of money I have been getting each month.
I do not buy the LTD/Amway CD's or even attend the conferences. This last weekend there was a conference, but being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, AKA Mormon, we had General Conference. I found it more important to attend that for free. I understand that some people feel the need to go to the LTD/Amway Conferences but I my self do not. I have found that most everything you want to learn you can learn on the internet or threw your up-line. I do find the weekly meetings important when someone has intensest in joining Amway, but as I have also said in previous posts, I am not trying to grow my down-line. I would rather work on sales and consistency. This is not the "normal" practice of LTD or Amway, and yes I understand the more people in your down-line the more money you can make. I personally would rather work on constant sales before moving forward with "growing my business downward."

Now with my original thought process, Yes it is sad that it is only October but the Holidays are upon us! I know I have mentioned Ribbon before but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Ribbon! It makes all of my Holiday Shopping so simple! For an Amway IBO, independent business owner, I can get 5 gifts for 100$ for a customer you can get 5 gifts for 120$ thats only 24$ per person and they get to pick what gift they way! I am referencing the Variety Ribbon Album. You can check out what gifts can be chosen at 
Ribbon is the simple way to give but not stress for the holidays! And with it being such a simple process, it opens up your time!!!!!!!

Let me know if you have any questions!


  1. Are you still in Amway now? If not why not? If so, have you achieved a level which allows you to generate a profit after all expenses are taken into consideration?

    How many consistent retail customers a month?

    Hope all is well!

    1. LOL, why so sore?
      She is still in Amway. Why assume she is not?

  2. Why assume I'm sore? And why the LOL when asking?

    Not sore my friend, just asking basic questions any real business owner would know the answer to. Especially the part about retail customers. Most people don't want to pay a premium price for Amway products.

    I didn't assume she isn't, I just haven't seen her name show up in any online Achievers research. I can only assume based on that one of 3 things has happened:

    1. She quit

    2. She isn't succeeding at generating consistent sales every month.

    3. She died.

    Any light you can shed would be appreciated! I certainly hope she didn't die, she seems like a great person.

  3. Having looked around your web site I was very surprised at your stance. I have been in Amway since 1991 and have been a Direct Distributor here in the India for the last 4 years. I expect to be in Emerald Qualification with the next 12 months, this will result in me not having to work for a boss for the remaining 34 years of my working life.

    I appreciate book's, tapes, video's are useful to gain success oh and so are seminars. But as a result of the "System" I have also increased my JOB income by 120% as a result of building the Amway business.

  4. So let me get this straight....

    You are a Platinum (new term for Direct Distributor) which is after 25 years in Amway. You admit this took 21 years to achieve.

    Between the cost of products and the cost of functions/CD's/books/other upline expenses the DD level makes it essentially a wash, i.e.. no profit, but minimal losses.

    Congrats, you have achieved a net gain of breaking even according to the stats about the profitability of Directs.

    If you were 18 years old when you started that makes you 43 now. Is it common for people to work until the ripe old age of 77? Your math is suspicious.

    I certainly hope you are honest with people and tell them it took you over 2 decades to get to a break even point. I doubt many would join after hearing your story.

    How exactly do those tools help you make more $$$ at your job? Are you a commissioned salesperson?
