My First Amway Meeting and Jive Turkeys Ruining MLM

I remember my first Amway meeting at my local Best Western Hotel lobby lol. This is where I learned the difference between employee/business owner which was crucial… especially at my age. I was fresh out of high school (okay so I dropped out) and deciding between college, military or this home business thing. I tried my local colleges business administration program for 8 months but like high school, it just wasn’t for me.

On top of that I couldn’t join the military because I couldn’t pass a drug test.. all of my income went straight to pills and pot… The thought of snorting pills still makes me gag to this day.

My only option was this home business deal known as Amway so I took $150 out of savings to join.

I thought I was investing in business ownership, but it was something much more. It was mentorship, new friends, the ability to travel, but most importantly, it was the personal development books and audios that I was introduced to that would finally set me free. Not financially free (just yet) but from hard drugs and my addictive personality.

Everyone has a story about their past, good or bad.

People need to hear your story folks… you might save someones life.

Unfortunately there are too many jive turkeys in this industry who put on a show by censoring their posts, copy and pasting Zig Ziglar quotes and not speaking their mind. I may be unorthodox, I may be controversial, but nobody can deny that I’m as real as it gets.

I don’t hold back, neither should you. Period.

MLM Functions & Affiliate Events: Waste Of $ Or Secrets Revealed? (Video Attached)

Is your upline pressuring you to go to your MLM function?

should i attend MLM events
Some Friends @ Last Event!

My first few years in MLM I was involved in the mac daddy of them all known as Amway lol… don’t you just love Amway?

My up line ‘mentor’ kept telling me the importance of buying my tickets to the big ‘function’ every 90 days but for whatever reason I never went. I always came up with excuses such as not having the money, or I had to work that weekend, but in reality I could have easily came up with the extra money and requested off work a few weeks in advance.

After quitting Amway and fumbling around in quite a few different MLM companies and affiliate offers, I finally made the decision to attend my primary MLM’s big event as well as my online affiliate companies big event.

It’s not really about the wisdom being dropped or the big ‘secret’ you expect to learn, but more so just brushing shoulders with the 6 & 7 figure income earners in your company. Sitting down for coffee or lunch with them, or even hitting the clubs and partying it up with these industry leaders is really where the golden nuggets and tips you are paying for are revealed.

The first event I went to was a big conference for a weight loss deal I was promoting. This company had just hit momentum so they packed like 15k people into the  Miami Heat Arena for their big event almost 2 years ago. I think the main thing I got out of this event was just seeing all the average, everyday people who were making a full time income in this industry. Other then that it was really just a big old hype fest lol… maybe you can relate.

“Free BMW’s for anybody who produces X amount of sales each month.”

“Free product if you sell our overpriced product to 3 of your friends each month.”

“We believe in you.”

“You can do it!”

“It’s YOUR time!”

Yeah it was the hypest weekend of my life… no wonder why that companies sales are down $90 million from last year 🙂

Moving on, me and my team got tired of the hypey free BMW’s and selling overpriced crap to 3 friends every month made it hard for me to sleep at night. So we moved on to some online business that was a lot more affordable to start and operate each month. This made it a very ‘sticky’ business model, meaning once people joined they had a hard time cancelling their monthly product subscription. When it was announced that this internet based company that went from $0 to $80 million in sales in less than 2 years was holding their quarterly event in Miami just a few hours south of me, you can bet your ass that I bought tickets for not only myself, but the 3 leaders on my team in my neighborhood.

Now this event was a lot more in depth then Hype Fest 2012… that was my name for it at least. Sure there was some hype and rah rah chants, but some people need that excitement or chill down their spine… the rest of us however were looking for an action plan, proven marketing and sales tactics, and any advice that would help us get to the next level.

What this event did differently then the little MLM party was on day 2 of the event, they split up all their leaders into different lobbies of the hotel we were at and let them teach for an hour, making it a more intimate setting they called them workshops. This gave people who attended the event the choice between their favorite leaders and who they personally wanted to learn from. Since a lot of these training workshops were happening at the same time as one another, we had to split up and each attend different workshops and share the notes that we took later on.

So should you attend your MLM company events?

At the end of the day only YOU can answer that question.

What I will say is this: if you have the money in your checking, you can get out of work or find a babysitter, then yes you should definitely attend the event! If you are still on the fence about your company or whether or not you can succeed there, attending their event will definitely either make you a firm believer in your products and company, or it might be the one last thing that puts the nail in the coffin where you decide to leave that specific company.

Either way you look at it, the highest paid network marketers all attend their events, and they are the biggest promoters of their company events. Just keep that in mind if you want to become a millionaire in MLM or affiliate marketing.

I hope you have enjoyed this article about whether or not you should go to your MLM company functions and events.

I’ll see ya at the bank!

amway 2013 record sales
Do Amway, Don’t Be THAT Guy!

Amway today reported global sales of USD $11.8 billion for 2013, a record for the organization.  The total surpasses 2012 sales of $11.3 billion and continues a period of tremendous growth, highlighted by annual sales increases in seven consecutive years. The company’s annual sales figure includes revenue from direct selling operations and other business holdings.

“Our distributors are the driving force behind this remarkable achievement, supported by the work of our 21,000 employees worldwide,” said Amway Chairman Steve Van Andel and Amway President Doug DeVos in a joint statement. “Distributors in more than 100 countries and territories are now achieving their potential through their Amway businesses, creating another record year for the company.”

Strong sales across categories, led by nutrition
Nutrition products continued to be the sales leader for Amway. Flagship products include NUTRILITE™ Protein Powder and NUTRILITE™ DOUBLE/TRIPLE X supplements.

Product launches included TRUVIVITY by NUTRILITE™, a patented moisture enhancing system that leverages the company’s scientific expertise in nutrition and beauty, and a new line of weight management products, BODYKEY by NUTRILITE™.

The beauty products category provided strong results as well, strengthened by the continued global rollout of its ARTISTRY YOUTH XTEND™ skincare collection and the launch of the ARTISTRY IDEAL RADIANCE™ brightening line.

In the home products category, sales of eSpring™ Water Purifiers were impressive, bolstered by the momentum of the product’s introduction inChina in late 2012 and strong sales in Asian markets.  eSpring™ is now the world’s number-one selling brand of home water treatment systems, based on a Verify Markets study of 2012 global sales.

Amway also continued its support of its distributors through a physical presence strategy that included opening a business center in Berlin, Germany in 2013.  Amway has experienced success with integrating physical locations into its business model in recent years and, with the opening of a location at Citi Field in New York City, now has physical locations in all four company regions.  The locations serve as another tool for distributors to use in building their businesses and servicing their customers.

Supporting entrepreneurship
In its continued support of entrepreneurship, Amway published its Global Entrepreneurship Report in November 2013.  The report studied people’s attitudes toward self-employment, revealing important information about global views and the desire by many for a business opportunity of their own.  Amway has been collecting and analyzing data in relation to entrepreneurship on a regular basis since 2008. In 2013, the survey featured 24 countries, including the United States, Mexico, Colombia, Japan,Australia and several European countries.

Giving nature
The company culminated a year’s worth of activities dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the AMWAY ONE BY ONE™ Campaign for Children on Nov. 20, 2013.  The single day of service, called Amway Universal Children’s Day, mobilized employees and distributors from across the globe to serve children’s causes.

African Gold Miner Amara Mining Company Leverages Amway’s Family Wealth

amara mining amwayNov 7 (Reuters) – African gold miner Amara Mining has sold roughly a fifth of its shares to a wealth management firm investing on behalf of one of America’s richest families, in a deal that will bring in cash, a drilling firm, and exploration licenses.

Under the deal, RDV Corporation – which invests on behalf of the DeVos family who co-founded direct sales giant Amway, one of the largest U.S. private firms – will take a stake of around 21 percent in Amara. They will also fold in assets from their exploration company Amlib, including $10 million in cash.

Smaller miners and companies developing mining projects have come under severe pressure since the financial crisis, squeezed by a shortage of bank finance and lacklustre public markets – forcing more to turn to alternative sources of funds like stake sales, royalty deals or debt that converts into shares.

Share sales to sovereign wealth funds and family offices, which invest the fortunes of wealthy families, have long been touted as a potential source of cash for the mining sector given their long-term view, but Amara is one of the first to bring in a major U.S. family fund.

John McGloin, chairman of Amara, said the company had weighed up the family investment against other options like a royalty deal, which would swap cash upfront for a percentage of future revenues, or selling forward its gold production.

“This (deal) has allowed us to plan for 12 to 18 months, but in the long term it brings in a very solid investor with a long-term view,” he said.

He said royalty deals risk hobbling projects in the future, as they take a share of revenues and not profit, while hedging can also prove a difficult bet on future prices.

Major share sales by heavyweights like Barrick Gold , issuing up to $3.45 billion of shares to pay down part of its heavy debt load, had also sucked up cash from traditional investors that could otherwise have gone to smaller producers.

“It is a really tough market at the moment. You can’t rely on the old investor base, a lot have left the table,” McGloin added. “You have to find fresh, fallow fields.”

AIM-listed Amara, formerly Cluff Gold, has a producing gold mine in Burkina Faso and is aiming to become a mid-tier producer, through the development of projects in Sierra Leone and Ivory Coast.

As well as the $10 million cash from Amlib, acquiring Amlib’s drilling company could allow it to save up to $3 million alone in drilling at Yaoure in the Ivory Coast. The deal also brings in three exploration projects in Liberia.

RDV invests on behalf of the DeVos family, which owns 50 percent of Amway – a direct selling firm which sells consumer goods like skincare and cleaning supplies. They also own basketball team Orlando Magic and a portfolio of private businesses, and have invested in West African gold for over a decade.

Richard DeVos was listed as the 67th richest person in America by Forbes magazine in 2012 with a net worth estimated at $5.1 billion.

If you want to start working for yourself like many successful Amway distributors, but feel you don’t have the money to get started then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

If you’re tired of your job and really want to work for yourself then stop making excuses and do it.

Though affiliate marketing programs and selling services you will find that having your home business is easier than you think.

All it takes is time and a commitment to succeed…

The Secret Societies of Network Marketing

Hey what’s up internet land you have Mr. Joe Stewart here the author of Create Your Own Economy. Today I’m going to do something that normally, I don’t like to do… And that is to expose a secret society of people who are quietly taking over the network and online marketing industry as we know it my friends.

It is a group of greedy CEOs, their right hand corporate staff and “pay to play” top income earners who behind closed doors, actually earn all of their income by selling tools, books, CDs and hosting seminars where they are making the most money… it is not by selling energy drinks, overpriced vitamins and juices and stuff like this.

secret

As soon as you realize that there is a 75 percent failure rate in MLM, you can actually profit from that by solving the problem of these 75 percent of network marketers who are not making any money in their business.

You can do this by teaching them how to get in front of their target audience, who are basically people looking for business opportunities or the products that they are offering through their home business. By calling all of your friends and family to see if they are looking for more ways to make money, they are going to think that you got wrapped up in one of those pyramid things.

My friends there is obviously a much much better way to go about building your business. The first thing that you have to realize is that there are thousands of people everyday who go on Google and type in stuff like how to make money from home, how to make money online, how to join Amway, MonaVie, Vemma… you name it!

So instead of chasing around all your friends and family members in an attempt to sponsor them into your business or sell them products, you are going to quickly find yourself in what we like to call the NFL… and no I’m not talking about the National Football League, I’m talking about the no friends left club.

By continuing to pitch your friends and family your home business that they truly just don’t give a s*** about, you are alienating yourself from everything that you once loved and cared about.

So what would it be worth to you, to learn how to get positioned in front of all these people who are typing in how to make money online, or better yet how to join your specific MLM company? I don’t know about you but I would pay thousands of dollars to learn this information.

So ask yourself what is it worth to you? Is it worth 25 dollars, $100, $300… or much much more? Now I don’t know about you, but the skill of recruiting, sales ability, copywriting and marketing is a priceless skill. You can literally learn copywriting, write a sales letter, and use it to recruit thousands of people into your network marketing business day after day, month after month, year after year.

So what would you rather do continue to pester random people at Walmart, speak with everybody who comes within 3 feet of you, just to invite them to some weird hotel meeting where your upline earning millions shows your prospects his shiny gold Rolex, his exotic car, and a bunch of other stuff that is not realistic in your prospects eyes? How is that working out for you? You’re probably not getting the results that you want am I right?

So look if you’re tired of driving around from meeting to meeting, dragging your prospects from hotel to hotel and you want to learn the true secrets to going full time in your home based business, I would highly recommend that you click this link to learn how we are extracting leads and cash straight from our mobile phones, without ever actually picking up the phone to attempt to call and recruit these leads… Because nobody likes to be a salesman, right?

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

Why I Chose Network Marketing: Guest Post by Derrick Alexander

Hi everyone, my name is Derrick Alexander and I decided to take the time to give you some insight about me and why I chose to pursue the industry of network marketing. At an early age, I noticed how hard my parents worked just to provide for me and we hardly ever had the time or money to travel and enjoy life. Many times, they would discuss about vacations and how each would have to compromise certain times to spend away with family in order to travel. The dream was nothing more than that as the years passed by.

My mother was laid off from the banking industry during my middle school years, which forced my father to be the solo income provider for the household. The family time often discussed for vacation became a myth. My father started a painting business in addition to his full time job to make up for my mother not working and her expenses. Eventually, my mother landed a job in the telecommunications industry and my father continued his painting business along with his full time job. Even though the money was better at this point in time, we had even less time to spend together. My father worked all day on Saturdays to provide extra income for us and even sometimes on Sundays, after we would come home from church. If the money was needed badly, my father would work seven days a week. This had eventually became a routine as I was involved in extra curriculum activities in high school.

One day, I sat alone and started to think do I really want that type of lifestyle for myself? I saw both of my parents work hard for years and did not have much to show for their effort in terms of family time together, other than church on Sunday. I decided that I wanted to start my own business once I was older and had the finances to do so. I did not want to work until I was old and not have the ability to enjoy life. I was born with the talented gift to draw and would come up with all kinds of ideas on what to invent and how to submit my inventions to be publish to the world. Then as I got older, I took a look at retail store franchises and decided that I wanted to be a franchiser like Sam Walton, not aware that I was developing the mindset of an entrepreneur. I thought it would be so awesome to have a store of my own and then expand all over the country like Walmart! My plan was to pursue that dream after I finished college.

In the mid 2000’s, I was introduced to network marketing, not really familiar with the concept, and thought of it as an non traditional job where I did not have to dress up to make money. After the second or third company that I joined, I learned the meaning of passive income, which is what interested me the most about network marketing. I saw an opportunity to do work and get paid continuously if I stopped working. Another concept that interested me about network marketing was leverage. I never learned about leveraging time and money in all of my school years.

When I found out that I could buy into a company’s system to use, not having to reinvent the wheel, and that I had the ability to make residual income by leveraging time and money through other people’s efforts, I was sold and never had any doubts about it. I was not skeptical like most people are trained to be when making life changing decisions and I have no regrets. I often times think back to when as I was a child, that I do not have to spend tons of money to buy products for my own business or just to start a business in general. I have been on the corporate America journey for sometime now and realized that it is not a part of God’s plan for my life. I have always had the heart to give and help others even as a child and I still do. I find the statement to be true that when you give, you will receive more than you gave in all shapes, forms, and fashions, not just financially!

As I close, I hope that my story will give hope and inspiration to someone who may be experiencing life challenges or to motivate someone to follow their dreams and not give up. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, but you must be willing to strive forward and not turn around when things dont fall into your plan. We all will face adversity at some point in life, but it is only temporarily. I recommend network marketing to everyone because it enriches your thought process about life and how it enables you to fulfill your potential that maybe you thought that you never had. Network marketing also allows you to make the kind of money that you never would dream of making by working forty to fifty years of your life. Many people around the world have made fortunes by this way of life and there will be many more to come as we now live in the technology age. The new form of rich and wealthy is in network marketing and more people than ever before have adapted to this path of opportunity.

Why Are Direct Sales MLM Peeps So Brain washed?

Why Are Direct Sales Peeps So Brain washed?

direct sales brainwashAre you online looking for more information about the claim that most network marketers are brain washed ding bats?

Maybe a friend or close family member is totally brain washed by the direct sales industry and you want answers.

Who knows… maybe you are worried that you yourself might be brain washed to promote your MLM like it’s some sort of cult.

After being involved in the controversial industry known as mlm or network marketing for over 3 years now, I have come in contact with hundreds of promoters from various different companies. They rant and rave about how they have best product in the market today. They tell you how their upline is the best leadership coach known to mankind.

Most of the time they throw out crazy income claims about their sponsor and others above them in business, whether they be making “$50k-$500k per month” so on, and so fourth. Although there are thousands of network marketers who earn $50k+ per month or more and what not, we all know that most of these claims are not true. So why are most network marketers so brainwashed and close minded? Here is my opinion…

Why are Networkers Brain Washed?

When you first get involved in our industry, the person who invited you to the event 3-way phone call, or webinar is usually someone you like and trust.

You have probably known them for a while or if you just met them today, there is just something you like about them to where you listen to them, trust them, and believe what they have to say whether it is true or not.

Some network marketers never open up a book, or do any research on their own into these crazy income claims or product testimonials. I certainly feel bad for these people, as they are simply sheep following the herd.

Why The Brain Washed Network Marketers Will Fail

amway brain wash
Amway Brain Wash

These brain washed sheep will continue to follow the so called “proven system” taught to them by their upline sponsor or other mentors, whether they are making money or not. Yes people.. some people are that sucked into their company, product or mentor. They don’t do their own research or look for a solution to their problems because they are truly that brainwashed.

The typical “MLM looney” will send you “cold hard facts” about their company, including income claims, product stories and testimonials. Nine times out of ten, the cold hard “facts” that they preach and send to you, are from their own companies official blog and website LOL. For example, a MonaVie distributor may tell you about the antioxidant powers found in their bottle of super juice. So they send you a link to the Official MonaVie blog like it is some trusted source of information.

If your Brain washed already, here is Tip #1: Always Get Third Party Facts, Comparisons, and Opinions. 

The company website is the most biased website you can go to. Of course they are going to tell you have the highest ORAC score, most acai berries in their juice… but if an independent lab and team of scientists is telling me that Brand A has more nutritional value then Brand B, I am going to take their word over you, your companies HIRED team of scientists.

It is just common sense folks.

I am in MLM too, just no longer brain washed… Yes I’ll admit when I first started 4 years ago in Amway I would buy the overpriced vitamins and supplements, go to weekly meetings and training’s that cost $5-$10 because that’s what we were told to do, maybe you can relate…

But now there’s companies out there who are only requiring their distributors to order a high quality health product for a small price of only $39. Most companies are requiring their distributors to order between $125-$250 month on health, beauty, and other consumable products, or digital products and so on just to remain active and get paid.

No wonder why so many people quit MLM…

These greedy CEO’s have their psychology wrong. If they would lower their prices so that the little guy has a shot in home business, the distributors would order more and they would also have a high customer to distributor ratio which is very important in our industry as far as laws and regulations go.

Instead of believing the random person on Facebook who messaged you about their business opportunity, you should do your own research on your own time. I personally have third party teams and other network marketers over at the MLM Times official website do the research for me so I can analyze the compensation plan, as well as the product market and see if it is big enough to build a billion dollar company and then I make an informed decision as to which company I join and endorse.

Sure, your company is great… so is mine!

But that is like President Obama sending out a link on his official Facebook page with a message over it stating “Unemployment numbers decrease under the Obama administration”. So if your an Obama supporter and promoter, you go with those numbers and pat yourself on the back.

Then what?

You look over at Mitt Romney’s official Facebook page to see a similar post.. “Unemployment Numbers Rise Under the Obama Presidency”.

As a network marketer, you have to be careful about what information you take in as facts and preach to your audience.

If you are a MonaVie distributor, check some third party sites as well, don’t get brain washed by the exotic cars and million dollar bonuses. Don’t always believe everything you hear.

I know you trust your up line and business partners and you want to believe everything they, or the corporate team of your company says. Although that is fine, be smart and remember the famous quote.. “Trust, but verify.”

Obviously I am a career network marketer, and I don’t think that every promoter is one of these “MLM looneys” that I am talking about. Just be careful about the information you take in, and verify the facts before you go spread what is an actually an opinion as a fact.

I hope this post helps open your mind to the brain washed myth in MLM and causes you to “Trust, but verify”.

I also hope it has brain washed you to join me in making money online TODAY!

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

If you’re tired of your job and really want to work for yourself then stop making excuses and do it.

Though affiliate marketing programs and selling services you will find that having your home business is easier than you think.

All it takes is time and a commitment to succeed…

Brig Hart: MonaVie Millionaire Retires to a Cause- Take Back The USA

Brig Hart: MonaVie Millionaire and Leading Network Marketer

Brig Hart USA Brig Hart Monavie
Brig Hart and his RR Phantom.

Hey everyone, Joe here with a brief article about one of the highest paid network marketers to ever walk planet earth, Brig Hart.

He was born on the eastern shore of Maryland and born in Deland, Florida to his parents, Bob and Cornelia Hart. Brig says his childhood was rough growing up in the 1960’s when people were heavy into drugs. He stated that his dad was an alcoholic which lead to a lot of problems going up, causing Brig to runaway at age 13.

Brig Hart was drafted into the United States Marine Corps in 1970 but his delayed recruitment process didn’t allow him to serve until 1971 so when he was shipped over to Vietnam the war was already winding down. He said the Marine Corps is where he learned a lot of the discipline that he needed to later on open up his first surf shop and become a full time entrepreneur.

After serving in the USMC, he ended up back in Florida to open that surf shop. Brig Hart said that they came up on some hard economic times in the 70’s, and they almost lost the surf shop they worked so hard for years to own and operate.

Brig Hart finds his Talent: Network Marketing

After their surf shop was in trouble, Brig Hart was introduced to the Network marketing industry over 30 years ago.

The first company he got involved with was Amway Global, where he built it part time for a few years before he realized he was earning more from Amway part time then he was at his “brick and mortar” business so he started building Amway full time.

During his first 12 years of being involved, his team as a whole did combined $5.5 billion dollars in total sales. Not Amway as a whole… Brig Hart’s personal team did $5.5 billion dollars over a 12 year period. INSANE!!!

He stayed active in Amway Global for many years earning hundreds of millions of dollars, and a minimum of $1 million per year for the last 32 years now.

Brig Hart finds MonaVie

Brig Hart MonaVieAlthough Brig Hart was living a comfortable lifestyle through his early retirement with Amway, he found the Mona Vie business before they launched to the public.

Brig stated that he wasn’t looking for a new networking business to build, but more so an all natural health product to help build the immune system because he had been diagnosed with cancer in the year 2000.

Brig Hart tried the product and said his joint pain had went away, he was feeling better and sleeping better so he had to share the product with friends and family. After sharing it with friends and family and hearing great testimonials, he decided to dive in and build the new health company MonaVie.

After building the company for 3 years, Brig Hart took his new found home business Mona Vie, to the billion dollar sales threshold just like he did in Mona Vie. Now that is skill! Brig went on to climb to the top of the compensation plan earning multiple millions of dollars per year.

Brig Hart has also helped hundreds of people in his Amway and Mona Vie organization become self made multi-millionaires, most notable top income earner Steve and Gina Merritt.

He also owns the R3Global training platform (no longer associated with Mona Vie) and is the official licensee of the Salt Life brand.

In 2013 Brig announced he was launching the USA Association. It is not MLM related, but something much MUCH bigger… a higher calling you could say.

A volunteer Army of believers!

Read my article about Brig Hart’s USA Association here, and see why I am taking part in it!

I hope you have enjoyed this article about the man, the myth, the legend… Brig Hart!

Nutrilite Review: Is Amway’s Nutrilite Brand Good Quality or Overpriced?

Nutrilite Review: Is Amway’s Nutrilite Brand Good Quality or Overpriced?

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by my website today. I would assume you were doing some research about Nutrilite products. Nutrilite is the vitamin & supplement line of products that is offered by Amway Independent Business Owners. The Nutrilite brand has been around since 1934 when Carl F. Rehnborg launched his line of vitamins known as Nutrilite.

While living in China in the early 1920s, Carl Rehnborg noticed unforgettable malnutrition and disease, an important connection between the foods people ate and their overall health. In farming communities, where fresh fruits and vegetables were plentiful, people were much healthier overall. In the cities, where diets included far more sugar, salt, and fat, Carl noted that there were many more instances of serious diseases, such as scurvy and beriberi.

Nutrilite Products

nutrilite double xThe flagship Nutrilite product is known as Double X. Rehnborg launched this product in 1948 using natural herbs and minerals, that he found beneficial to the health of the people consuming Double X. The product is based on phytonutrients which stands for plant concentrates. Double X is a package of 3 different pills, each with different vitamins, minerals and ingredients etc. Double X is pricey however, running at $50 for Amway distributors and around $80 retail price.

Nutrilite Men’s & Woman’s Pack

I would say that the Men’s or Woman’s pack is probably the best deal you are going to find at Amway. They cost about $25 retail pricing and about $16 or so for Amway IBO’s.

nutrilite mens packThe Nutrilite men’s pack includes:

Each pack contains one tablet of each of these essential supplements from NUTRILITE: Daily Multi, Vitamin C Plus Extended Release, Multi Carotene, and OCEAN ESSENTIALS Balanced Health.

The Nutrilite woman’s pack includes:

Each pack contains one tablet of each of these essential supplements from NUTRILITE: Daily Multi, Cal Mag D Advanced, Complex for Hair, Skin & Nails, and OCEAN ESSENTIALS Balanced Health.

The Nutrilite brand also offers vitamins and supplements for kids, seniors and products designed specifically towards certain health issues such as obesity, heart disease, bone and joint support and many more.

Nutrilite Weight Management

They also market a wide range of weight loss products as well from diet pills, weight loss or meal replacement shakes as well as carb blocker products. Along with the weight management line, they also have a sports nutrition based line of products for people who go to the gym or are active in sports. From protein bars & shakes, to pre-workout drinks and rhodiola.

In conclusion, Nutrilite products are made for all walks of life.

They are obviously more costly then your typical Wal-mart or GNC label vitamins, but that is because Amway is a network marketing company, and they pay their Independent business owners when a sale is made instead of paying for marketing and advertising. On top of that, a portion of the products must go to the Amway/Nutrilite employees and corporate staff.

I hope you have enjoyed this review of Nutrilite products!

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

Amway Global | Are Diamonds Leaving Amway Behind?

Amway Global: Are Diamonds Leaving Amway Behind?

Love them or hate them, Amway has remained on top in direct sales, and also has a major influence with the whole multi-level marketing industry. They have thousands of success stories of independent business owners across the world.

diamonds leaving amway

One of my great mentors built a large Amway organization back in 1983 and stopped building it in 1988. He simply remained ‘active’ as a promoter by either buying products or maintaining retail customers and has earned a lucrative residual income from Amway since 1988, putting him in the top 1% of the wealthiest people in America.

So does it work? You bet your ass it does… It works if YOU work it. If you plan on sitting around and waiting for checks to show up at your mailbox, stick with that job scam. 🙂

Why Would Diamonds Leave Amway Anyway?

Here is a brief article for you that poses the million dollar question: Are top leaders leaving Amway?

I have been hearing multiple stories across the web, and even at some local chamber of commerce business events, where successful Amway Diamonds told me they were leaving the opportunity.

So Are Top Leaders Leaving Amway?

Well one thing can be for sure… top income earners as well as new distributors alike, with little to no experience always leave companies when their income drops a few bucks, or they hear about the hottest new deal to hit the market place.

Everybody gets excited when they hear about these new “Free to join!” or “3×10 matrix payout=$8,345,298 in monthly earnings!” and lastly “Get in now and get in at the top” type of deals. So it obviously has nothing to do with the Amway products or even the Amway compensation plan, because people have been earning millions and millions of dollars per year through Amway for over fifty years now.

So why are Diamonds leaving Amway?

Here is my take on it: the internet.
Amway distributors hit the search engines looking for information about how to explode their Amway business via the internet. They found tons of helpful blog posts, articles and videos, all from attraction marketing experts all across the globe! They now finally found the ‘secret’ that their up line Diamond in Amway Larry Winters was hiding from them!

So instead of promoting their Amway business now, they instead decide to promote the Empower NetworkMike Dillard’s e-book or whatever the first attraction marketing system they run across first. They will make a quick $500-$1,000 and think damn I made more in this attraction marketing deal then I ever did in Amway! I think I’ll resign and do affiliate marketing full time!

Bad idea folks…

Although the gurus tend to believe there is some sort of magical, long term ‘continuity income‘ with affiliate marketing, I beg to differ. I would totally prefer the long term residuals you would get from a basic uni-level or hybrid binary compensation plan, through a traditional network marketing company.

Leave your thoughts and comments below.

Do you prefer the quick cash through affiliate marketing or the long term residuals found in a valid home based business?

I will see YOU at the top!

Mike Bundy: Who Is Amway Diamond and LTD Leader Mike Bundy?

Mike Bundy: Who Is Amway Diamond and LTD Leader Mike Bundy?

mike bundy amway

Hey gang Joe Stewart here coming to you today with a brief article about Mike Bundy. So who the heck is Mike Bundy anyway? Mike Bundy is the LTD or Leadership Team Development Co-Founder and an Amway Diamond. Mike and his wife Susan Bundy have been active in the Amway Global business for over 25 years now and hit the ‘Diamond pin level’ after being involved with the company for 22 years.

What is cool about their story is that most people quit network marketing after their first 6 months involved. Once they realize it is not a ‘get rich quick’ kind of deal, they unleash their ‘inner wussy’ and run back to that job or college scam… Mike and Susan Bundy on the other hand stayed the course for two decades, climbing to the top of the Amway compensation plan and earning millions of dollars in the process.

Who is Mike Bundy from Amway?

So like I stated in the summary, Mike Bundy is the co-founder or leader of an Amway approved training system called LTD which stands for Leadership Team Development. LTD was founded by Mike Bundy’s longtime friend and sponsor into the Amway business a guy named Larry Winters, who is also an Amway double diamond last time I spoke with him.

ltd, leadership team development, amway training system

Through their LTD Training system, they host weekly ‘open meetings’ all across America. This is where Amway IBO’s or independent business owners, invite guests and prospects to either find out how they can start their very own Amway business or purchase the products as a preferred customer.

I’ll be honest gang… Amway was my very first network marketing company, and Mike Bundy just happened to be my Diamond upline! So you are probably wondering if Mike Bundy and his leadership team development system are right for you? Or more importantly if what they are teaching you even works?

Obviously Amway has turned out OKAY after 50 something odd years in business through these hotel meetings and grand openings held at IBO’s houses. Yes these systems work! They are just slow and the hard way to build a huge business FAST!

Can Mike Bundy’s Tips Get You To Success?

Here’s my best analogy:

“You can cut your grass with scissors, a lawnmower, or hire a lawn crew.”

You see, Mike Bundy and his LTD Team teach you how to build your business slow like cutting grass with scissors… It took them 22 years to hit the $150k per year mark in Amway. Was it worth it? You bet.

But then you hear stories about David Wood & Dave Sharpe taking their residual income from Empower Network to $250k per month in a year flat.

What is the big difference between what David Wood & David Sharpe did?

Allow me to let you in on a little ‘secret’ that Mike Bundy doesn’t even know…

They adapted to a 21st century style to build their business.

They create online or digital real estate, allowing highly qualified prospects to run across their blog site just like you are on my blog today. They get their material and business presentation across thousands of people each and every week.

What would you prefer? Hosting a little hotel meeting once a week for the rest of your life or create enough digital real estate to where your MLM business grows on complete autopilot?

I will see YOU at the bank!

Larry Winters: Who Is Leadership Team Development (LTD) CEO & Amway Diamond Larry Winters?

Larry Winters | Who Is LTD CEO & Amway Diamond Larry Winters?

First off I would like to say that I am a former distributor of Larry Winter’s Amway team and Line of Sponsorship called Leadership Team Development. When I first got in Amway years ago, I was so fired up to be working with this multi-millionaire networker named Larry Winters.

My direct up line sponsor always talked about him and the lifestyle of freedom he had lived for years. If we simply followed his instructions and leadership training system then we would be financially free and be living the dream just like Larry and the others who followed him.

larry winters

Larry and his wife Pam Winters, joined the Amway Global business back in 1980 when they were contacted by their good friends Bill and Peggy Britt. Although it took them over 15 years to hit the rank of Diamond pin, they got it done.. Something most distributors can only dream of achieving. They never quit, they showed the plan as much as possible, shared the products with friends and family members and are now living the unexpected life of their dreams.

Larry Winter’s LTD Team

The Winter’s are great network marketers, some of the best. The one time I did get to meet the infamous Larry Winters, the crowd was just drawn to him. His jokes were hilarious, the confidence in his company and business team was displayed through grateful comments to all of us. Everything he was teaching just made perfect sense.

Larry Winter’s LTD team teaches you how to host and invite people to hotel meetings, grand openings where you sell Amway products, and one-on-one prospecting calls.

Although all of these tactics work great for me today, there were a lot of marketing skills they use but do not teach their down line. Why is that? So their team continues to purchase the books/CD’s and function tickets month after month to “learn the secrets”.

Larry Winter’s Amway Team

The LTD team has professionally branded up websites, blogs and graphic design as well. So why is it that they don’t teach their beloved distributors how to brand themselves as leaders, setup a blog and use online marketing tactics? I mean, we are in 2012 people.. if your still only using hotel meetings to show the plan, you are going to get passed up by online marketers fairly quick.

 

Since he is the owner of an Amway training system LTD and a double diamond, Larry Winter’s is supposedly earning “multiple millions” of dollars each year… although, if you look at the top 500 earners in the MLM industry, Larry Winter’s Amway Diamond account is nowhere to be found.

My Amway sponsor told me he was making $500k/mo thru his Amway business alone… but long story short these guys are making their millions at the events they hold, the CD’s and training’s the produce.  Can you make money in Amway? Yes! Of course…

Just know that there are other avenues for you to build a true residual income…

To the top we go!

I can’t WAIT to hear your success story!

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

If you’re tired of your job and really want to work for yourself then stop making excuses and do it.

Amway Review From A Guy Who Joined, Came To My Senses, Then Quit Amway! (I Would’ve Never Got Rich In Amway… Let Me Explain)

Amway Review | What Other Amway Reviews Won’t Tell You

If you have found yourself on this webpage I would assume that you are on Google doing your own research on the multi-level marketing company known as Amway. Amway has been doing business for well over 50 years and is a household name in the states.

The company name Amway stands for “the American Way” says founder Doug Devos. In this Amway review I plan on talking about the products, management, and compensation.

What Product’s Does Amway Have?

amway review

Amway markets everything you are buying right now and really need.. from vitamins and supplements, to skin care products and toiletries such as soap, lotion, toothpaste, shaving cream, you name it! Amway

started 50 years ago marketing their famous SA8 cleaning line. Now called Legacy of Clean or LOC, all of their cleaning products are all natural and green. The products have a nice citrus smell to them and doesn’t smell like chemicals and other toxins like your mainstream cleaning brand.

Amway Global Partner Stores

The Amway corporation is also proud to be partnered up with hundreds of house hold retailers such as Barnes n Noble, Bass Pro Shops, Blue Nile Jewelry, most famous phone companies and service providers, credit and prepaid debit card companies, travel companies, sporting goods outlets, multiple hotel chains, computer and video game suppliers, and hundreds other reliable, trusted companies.

Because Amway doesn’t have a marketing budget due to their independent business owners who spread the news about Amway products, service and business plan, they payout the money (around 35% of total sales) that would normally be spent on a marketing and advertising budget back out to its Amway team distributors.

The Truth About Amway Global?

The company relies on its distributors to make sales to customers, as well as order products for their own personal use. The old MLM saying is, “You can’t be the owner of Powerade and walk around drinking Gatorade” because your customers will know that something is wrong with powerade and they should definitely switch over to Gatorade. So use your MLM companies products, be a product of the product so you have your own testimony when possible customers ask.

Thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to educate yourself by reading this Amway review. If you have any questions or comments about the review, feel free to comment on the post below or hit the contact Joe tab at the top of my website.

If you are trying to figure out why I quit Amway… it is very simple. It’s an old company, stable sure… but very saturated. Everybody has either done Amway before or has a sour taste in their mouth about the company because a friend or family member probably told them it was a pyramid scheme.

Like I stated above, although Amway is doing over $1 billion per month in sales (more then the NFL) they only pay out 35% of that… kind of greedy if you ask me, since most network marketing companies are paying out right around 50% of their total revenue and using the other 50% to pay employees/operating/manufacturing costs.

Some people look at 50% commissions and think wow that is really fair! But when you actually break down the numbers you are truly earning a lot less… this is why the 97% of network marketers who don’t turn a profit each month in Amway have switched over to digital products that are able to pay out 100% commissions because of a small affiliate fee. So look… you can sit around, going to hotel meeting after hotel meeting, to the functions every 90 days to keep you “fired up” just to go out and build a sales organization that will pay you half of what you’re worth.

Aren’t you worth 100% of the money?

I know I am… and that is why I have retired from traditional screwy MLM companies like Amway, and put all my focus towards the digital gold rush that is happening right now as you read this.

I really hope you have enjoyed this Amway review!

I can’t WAIT to hear your success story!

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.
