Amway Global Opportunity versus My Newspaper Boy

Just the other day, I was working in my frontyard and the newspaper boy tossed my newspaper. Recently, our local daily paper increased their ratees from fifty cents to seventy five cents for a daily newspaper. Out of curiosity, I asked around and found out that a newspaper delevery boy gets paid about $3 per house, per month. An average newspaper route is about 50 - 60 homes and takes about 45 minutes to an hour per day to deliver these papers.

Thus a newspaper delivery boy earns $150 to $180 a month (not including tips) and works 5-7 hours per week.

Yet another opportunity where one can earn more than an average IBO!

(Amway/Quixtar reports that an average IBO earns $115 a month)

$180 per month? Sounds good but hey, it would sound a lot better if it were per day, right? You can get that job then. I will keep my Amway business, sorry!

$180 per month beats what most Amway IBOs earn.

How would you know if you are making more than the paper boy or not Anonymous? Do you keep a P/L?

Hi Gina,

You know what's funny? The fact that we even have a discussion about a newpaper boy's income versus the average income of an Amway IBO.

That is funny JC. It is an accurate comparison...according to Amways own published information. Funny stuff.

Well seeing as you can make $1700 in your first 90 days I think you'd come out ahead of the paper boy
