So many IBOs talk about Amway being the best business around or the best way to earn income. Their tenacity in defending the business is almost scary at times. But the way Amway is promoted by the motivational groups is no different than the people who want to sell you the secret of buying real estate with no money, or selling you income earning strategies. Many of these opportunities are promoted on infomercials, while Amway functions serve as infomercials.
The major function formerly known as dream nite, now known as winter conference is one where the diamonds show off their alleged wealth. They show videos of nice cars, jet skis, mansions, and other trappings, and then tell the audience they can have all of this and more, if only they will do what upline teaches.
It is like a live version of an infomercial. But what many do not notice about the infomercials (when showing success testimonials) is that it most often says "unique experience", your experience may vary. It is more like Amway than you think. Achieving a sginificant level in Amway, such as Emerald or higher, probably qualifies as a unique experience.
If you really think about it, if someone were really making so much money doing something, why wouldn't they continue to do it instead of taking up so much of their valuable time promoting it? Is it because they make more money promoting it than doing it? I will guess it's the latter and not the former.
