I recently encountered on another blog, as IBO, supposedly at a significant level, who is criticizing the blog author. This IBO says the blog author's recollection of his experience in a function is not valid because the function was not run exactly as she remembers. This is despite the fact that functions are run all over the country and by different diamonds and different lines of sponsorship. These same IBOs get their underwear in a knot if someone says, in a broad generalization, that certain things happen in functions, implying that something might be taught in all groups, in all functions. Well, we know that is unlikely, but by the same token, to claim that certain things are never taught in all functions is not an accurate statement either.
So where am I going with this post? Ironically, I will use the same logic as some upline leaders. The facts don't matter. What's that you say? Yes, the facts don't matter - but not in the same context as some upline leaders.
My point is that whether an upline leader runs a functions a certain way, it matters not, most IBOs will not make money. If an upline leader teaches selling, most IBOs won't make money. If an upline leader teaches buy from yourself, most IBOs won't make money. If an upline leader doesn't push tools hard on their downline, most IBOs won't make money. Amway's numbers confirm this assertion. $115 a month average income (Which disregards IBOs who do nothing), less than 4% of sales are to non IBOs. No matter what your upline teaches you, you are likely to suffer financial losses if you are on the "syatem".
So there you have it folks, the facts don't matter. If you join the Amway Global opportunity and purchase system tools, the facts don't matter, you will likely lose money.
