This month marks 20 years as an Amway IBO. Back in June 1995 many friends told us not to do it. I’m glad I didn’t listen to them! It’s been a real blessing that has greatly enriched our lives.
Beyond the fact that it’s been financially rewarding to build a residual income that comes in every month, there were many other unexpected and pleasant surprises. The best one was all the friends we’ve made along the way. Those friends are priceless! And it’s very rewarding to be able to help others as well. What a nice experience all around.
To this day, I remember sitting on a plane bound for Las Vegas for an all-expense-paid by Amway week at the Venetian Resort for achieving our goals that year. We had a $10,000 bonus check in hand as well and I told Martha, Walmart never did anything like this for us. I guess you had to be there but it was a memorable moment.
So, despite what the skeptics say, Amway has enabled us to make a living by simply using the products and looking for Customers or IBOs who also wanted to “Shop and share” as I’ve always called it. I liked that name so well that I bought the domain www.ShopShareEarn.com
Today, I use my ‘free’ retail site that Amway gives IBOs (www.amway.com/kurt) and simply redirect my site to the free site. The biggest surprise to people is how Amway has changed from the ole days of product pickup at our house, storing inventory, etc. Today we simply direct people to one of the free sites that Amway gives us. Our guests can register for free as a Customer or upgrade as an IBO for $50/year which enables them to have the same opportunity as us. I sum it all up by saying that we tell, not sell. We support, not convince.
We’ve made a nice income for 240 consecutive months now for shopping and sharing and we look forward to helping those who ask for our help.
In summary before I get all wound up writing about it, I just wanted to say thanks for a rewarding and amazing learning process over the past 20 years! And it’s great knowing that residual income is there every month for work we did years ago. I look forward to helping many more people in the future.It’s so bright, I have to wear shades! Thank you Amway!
