I recently wrote a post about how an platinum group, collectively loses money if they are on the system. I beliebe this is true of any group, especially if they are CORE IBOs. Here is the original post: http://thefactsabouttheamwayopportunity.blogspot.com/2009/05/amway-global-analysis-of-platinum-group.html
IBOFightback, (See links below) apparently is a discredited lower level IBO, much like the prolific "Tex". He has been known to lie and spin facts to make the Amway business opportunity look better. When I wrote the above listed post, I most certainly undertstood that an Amway group is fluid, meaning some IBOs sign up and do nothing, some sign up and do a little, and some sign up and work very hard. In any group, you will have a core group of IBOs who put forth the most effort and that is the gist of the post. So it is very likely that a platinum group has well over 100 to 150 IBOs, with some doing nothing, some doing little, and some working hard, with the hard working obviously comprising most of the PV.
But IBOFightback makes absolutely ridiculous comments which I will refute.
IBOFightback ”Because the 6-4-2 simplified model does not reflect a real business”
Joecool says: In what business model, franchise or other does a business show a simplified model that does not reflect a real business? If you were recruited to buy say a McDonald's franchise, would you ask for bonafide real financials or would you be persuaded to buy the franchise based on a "simplified model that does not reflect a real business"? Seems to me only a shyster would present such a model, and only a fool would jump into a business after seeing a presentation which has no basis in reality. (And yes, I was foolish enough to buy this at one time)
IBOFightback goes on to spin some more: "JoeCool here is assuming that every single IBO in a Platinum group is working (and spending) hard building a business"
Joecool says: I fully understand that some IBOs do nothing or little and said so in my comments. It is the recruiting IBOs showing the plan who are showing the "6-4-2 simplified model (which) does not reflect a real business" who are assuming that every single IBO in a platinum group is working and building a business. If it's wrong to assume that every single IBO is building a business and working, why is it shown as your business model? Seems deceptive and hypocritical to me.
So in closing folks, once again it is IBOFightback and other IBOs who are their own worst enemies. They come up with a ridiculous argument once again to try and spin and deflect the obvious truth. That the 6-4-2 or 9-4-2 is a ridiculous way to present the business as in IBOFighback's own words, "Because the 6-4-2 simplified model does not reflect a real business".
My question, why don't IBOs use a real life example to show a prospect? Is the truth embarrassing? Or do they purposely try to deceive unsuspecting prospects by showing them a "6-4-2 simplified model (which) does not reflect a real business"? When the plan is shown, I've have never heard of the presenter qualifying the plan as such.
