Amway reported in 2001 that the average IBO earns $115 a month. Amway disregarded the IBOs who "did nothing" so the average income, I presume is fairly accurate. However, when I look at the 6-4-2 presentation, the majority of IBOs are at the 100 PV level and would earn about $9 a month. $9 a month is $108 a year. $115 a month is $1,380 in a year!
Thus an IBO earning $115 a month is way above average! If you show someone the plan, you are probably "above average" based on the entire IBO population. If you sponsor a single IBO, you are in the top 20% of all IBOs. If you move 300 PV in volume, you are probably at a level higher than most IBOs will ever attain.
So be encouraged IBOs and prospects. If you earn $115 a month, you are probably a top level IBO. Of course we are talking average, thus a crown ambassador thrown into the "average" probably pulls up the average. If I had to guess, I would say the "median" income would be between $10 and $30 a month. Can you buy your dreams at that price?
