As most North American IBOs know, television, radio, and music personality John Tesh is the voice of Amway Global in a series of television ads in the US. Tesh was apparently booked to perform at a recent Network 21 convention but couldn’t attend due to urgent surgery. He sent this video as an apology, and it includes The Amway Global Rap. Enjoy!
Amway IBO support company Network 21 has officially launched a public podcast at http://www.n21cast.com. A brief “intro” podcast was posted last month, but this week has seen the first “real” podcast, featuring an interview with Network TwentyOne founder, US Founders Crown Ambassador Jim Dornan. The podcasts can be listened to directly, or downloaded from the site or itunes (search for n21guy).
What I find most fascinating about this step is that the podcast is public. Numerous IBO organisations, including N21, had various online facilities for their IBOs, but little that is available for the prospect or other interested party surfing the ‘net to get a feel for life behind the scenes of a large Amway organisation. German Founders Crown Ambassadors Dr Peter & Eva Müller-Meerkatz have led the way with their regularly updated personal blog, www.peterundevamm.com, this N21 podcast site takes an innovative new approach. While both sites are obviously targeted to an IBO audience, I think it’s great that leaders are getting more and more proactive with getting a real, positive perspective on Amway on the ‘net for the googling public.
My last post about Amway Global Accreditation and Bob McEwen’s speech at Yager Internet’s conference has sparked a great deal of discussion, both on the comments here, on Amway Talk, and elsewhere. Of interest was two quite contrasting camps – a significant number of folk were supportive of my comments and expressed dismay at this type of talk occuring at Amway seminars. Numerous Amway critics, many of whom previously associated with the Yager system and it’s offshoots, also commented that political and religious evangelism was one of the aspects of their Amway experience they found most off-putting. A number of current IBOs, including self-identified “conservatives” also expressed their discomfort at these types of talks and their belief they had no place in Amway-related meetings.
In general I don’t like being critical of people, and I especially try to avoid being so in public. What’s more, with regards Amway, part of my “mission” with TTAA is to try to provide some balance to the excessive criticism of Amway on the Internet. Sometimes however, I encounter things that I believe are so proactively damaging to Amway’s reputation that I must speak out, even though I’m sure I’ll make some enemies out of friends. This is one of those times. Continue reading →
subscribe to mailing lists from all sorts of network marketing and personal development companies. I like to know what’s going on, and I regularly purchase materials from these other companies, in addition to materials from Network TwentyOne, the BSM organization I use with my Amway business.
Today I received an invitation to a fantastic looking seminar in Oslo, Norway. Hosted by a company called Quality Seminars, it’s called a Network Marketing Leadership event, and there are two featured speakers – Tim Sales and Professor Charles King. Tim Sales, of brilliantexchange.com, is a professional network marketer and trainer. Professor Charles King of the University of Illinois, is a marketing expert and more than a decade ago launched the first academic certification program about the industry.
Two fantastic speakers over two days in November. It’s been a while since I’ve visited Oslo, and quite frankly this sounds like an excellent seminar. The cost? The cheapest standard tickets (there is a discount if purchased early) are 3812 Norwegian Crowns (around US$603) for the two day seminar. Throw in airfares and accomodation, it’s still actually a pretty reasonable price for a professional business seminar. A tax deductable expense of course, too.Continue reading →
