A win for TEAM

Quixtar has suffered a legal setback in their dispute with TEAM. A Texas district court judge has declared that earlier Fifth Circuit reasoning in Morrison et al vs Amway et al that Amway’s contract was “illusory and unenforceable” also applies to current Quixtar contracts.

In essence the Courts declared that because the contract could be unilaterally changed by Quixtar, then they are not valid contracts. One immediate result is that Quixtar is unable to enfoce arbitration in the  Simmons et al vs Quixtar Inc case.

It will be interesting to see if there is any response on the Alticor Media Blog. Back in February, the blog stated that the Morrison decisions effect on current cases was “virtually zero”. As it happens, I agreed with them, as the Morrison decision seemed to hinge on the fact that the issues in the case occurred before the relevant changes to the Quixtar and Amway contracts.

It seems we were both wrong.

More accredited systems on the way

Following on from eFinity, MMP, ProSystemOne, and WIN I’ve heard from multiple sources that one of the larger IBO organisations has achieved Quixtar Accreditation and it will be officially announced within a week.

I was excited when the Accreditation program was launched, I was even more excited when it effectively became compulsory thanks to being linked to QBI awards and bonuses. I’m just hopeful that the professionalism which it imposes on BSM companies and organizations spreads throughout Amway around the world.

Quixtar transformation to Amway begins

Quixtar’s public transformation into part of the Amway Global family has now begun, with the Amway Global logo now being displayed alongside a Quixtar North America logo the Quixtar home page.

Back in November, 2006 I wrote a blog post titled A Message to Quixtar, Inc from Amway Australia, in which I included the following video which had recently been published by Amway Australia –


I followed with –

This is a lesson I think Quixtar needs to listen to. Why? Well, first, Amway home page and scroll to the bottom – you will find a link titled Amway Sister Company : Quixtar Inc which links to the Quixtar-inc home page. Now, go to the home page of Quixtar – you’ll find a link Quixtar Sister Company. No mention of Amway. Visit Quixtar Facts – same thing. Quixtar News Room, Quixtar Easter Seals, Quixtar History, This Biz Now – same, same, same, same. Why is this, Quixtar? Are you ashamed to be associated with the most successful multi-level marketing company in the world ?

A few days later, Quixtar Director of Communications Beth Dornan, responded with a post Not ashamed of Amway, outlining the relationship between Quixtar and Amway and admitting to some nostalgia for Amway amongst longer-term employees. I asked in a comment in that blog if there were plans to resurrect the Amway name in the US. Beth deftly responded without answering.

Now, I’ve no idea if it was planned then or not, but in May 2007 I hinted about the news that become publicly confirmed in June – Quixtar was to become Amway.

Amazingly, even since the transformation became public, announced on Quixtar and on Quixtar Blogs, I’ve still seen  IBOs around the internet deny a connection between Quixtar and Amway. Now, in the past it has been correct to say Quixtar is not Amway, but it has never been correct to deny any connection and say they’re completely different – they’re not. In 2008 however Quixtar is becoming Amway, so to try to limit, minimize, or even deny a connection is specious to say the least. A moment’s internet research by a prospect will lead to them discovering they’ve been lied to. A great way to build a business relationships – “join with me in building a great business! By the way, as you’ve just learned, I can’t be trusted!”

Idiotic.

Wth Stage 1 in place, the Amway name is clearly at the top of the Quixtar website. In 5 months, stage 2 will occur and Amway will become the more prominent name. In a year, Quixtar will be consigned to the history bin

One day I hope we can consign deceitful IBOs to the same place.
