Amway Global - Goofy Stuff Taught By Upline?

A site visitor recently gave me a password which gave me access to an IBO blog. Here is some of the stuff they wrote about. The name was withheld for privacy:

I built the business single for a while and knew that I could never date or marry someone who wasn't 100% for this business. I had my upline help when I thought a guy may have been more interested in me than the business. Then I met my husband, (q.i.'d him & went to a meeting before agreeing to go on a date.) It was when HE asked ME for more CD's I knew I wanted to marry him! :-) It was a big shift from being the leader of my business to giving him the reigns. I still q.i., show the plan, and do all the same things; he's just in charge now. It's important to be supportive of your husband, but it's also very important to take on an active role. As a single lady, don't settle for ANYTHING less than what you deserve and don't let a "potential mate" be a potential if they're not on board with your dream. Now our business can go twice as fast and I have my warrior!

Here's another gem!

One of the best things that has really helped me is to stop asking "why" so much. If he asks me to do something or states that this is what we are going to do, I've learned to truly be submitted and only give my opinion when asked!

And your point is? Hey, that's the story of a woman who knows what she wants and who's determined to accomplish just that. Oh I see, to you it sounds cult-like because discipline is something that you can't understand because you lack in this area.
You're a pervert and your agenda is to take and twist whatever doesn't suit your morbid views to create publicity, sensation and doubt. Get out and walk your dog or your neighbor's!

Calling the 1950's!!!! These women put women's rights back at least 20 years....I am sure they are so proud.

Hi Timothy, the woman is determined, but what is she determined to do and why? Because she is under mind control.

LOL - my old upline, when he met his now wife at a major function, had to "counsel" with his uplines so they could have a relationship!

Eventually "permission" was given so they could persue a relationship (she was crossline). I do remember my old upline saying verbatim that if he would have ended the relationship if upline told him to.

Trust me - I wish I was making this up, but it really happened.

Could someone point out the "freedom" or "Independent" in that situation for me????

While this is nothing more than a sad and embarassing scenario I would like to point out that it is also a veiw into how the business should not be run. she is stated to be running to her upline for advice on her relationships and if the man is not for this business then he is not for her? I actually agree with Gina. Ask Gina how she runs her business, does she have specifications to who her employee's or business partners can date? If they don't like Gina's business then are they told they can't date or marry them? No thats simply foolish.
This blog here is alot like showing the bad side to something and making it seem worse than it is because there is no good scenario to counteract it.

If Timothy is an IBO who believes this is really ok then he may need to rethink his position in this opportunity. is he a follower of dreams or an achiever of his own? your upline does not determine your success but you do determine a bit of thiers. think that over.

IBOs forget, or maybe they are taught to forget, that a dream is basically a long term goal.
