I get a good laugh out of IBOs when the talk about Amway not being "get rich quick". If that was how the opportunity was pitched, then why did you join, knowing that Amway's reputation was less than spotless? Seems that many IBO recruits have some kind of need, such as more income, which is why they join Amway in the first place. They join in hopes of making a few extra dollars, and hopefully the business will bloom into a big one where the money rolls in by the barrel full while you sit on a beach sipping mai tais.
Obviously, Amway must have been pitched as having the possibility of creating wealth in 2-5 years or whatever they show prospects these days. I don't think much has changed over the years. The problem in my informed opinion is that too many IBOs think they can create wealth with their Amway business. The sad reality is that in most business structures in Amway, the money is simply taken out of the pockets of downline ans redistributed to upline. This is done by downline having product loyalty. Product loyalty to Amway and the tools systems.
Many IBOs join to get extra time and money, but instead they give up much time and money from their jobs, which benefits upline. Not counting IBOs who do nothing, the remaining will likely buy their 100 PV, and consume voicemail, standing order, books and functions. It would be rare for an IBO to actually make enough Amway money to cover the cost of the tools, much less make a net profit. But I believe uplines will tell you that Amway is not get rich quick, because they want you yo expect to spend several years in the system, all the while lining upline pockets with tools profits.
On most cases, you will not get rick quickly in Amway. You will probably not get rich slowly in Amway either. It is very likely that you won't get anything in the Amway opportunity except a net loss, especially is you are dedicated to your upline's teaching system.
