Yesterday, one of the regular Amway Quixtar critics on the QuixtarBlog forums, pokerpooner, had the following to say about it –
LOL Joecool take a look at this video on youtube. This is the type of lifestyle they try too live. With helicopters,planes,mansions,boats etc. No possible way they can can live that way with a amway or system income
Pokerpooner has nearly 150 posts on these “critics” forums, so he’s not a complete neophyte. But let’s look at his comment on the video – “this is the type of lifestyle the try too live … No possible way they can live that way with a amway or system income”
How much ignorance does this comment reveal? First of all, these folk are Founders Crown Ambassadors. That’s an Amway business that has, at a minimum, either 20 separate Founder’s Platinum legs or 9 legs, each with a Diamond in it. A few years ago Quixtar reported that the average income for Founders Executive Diamond and above (that’s 9 separate Founders Platinum legs and more, less than half a Founders Crown) was in excess of a million dollars a year.
There’s a whole lot of lifestyle that can be bought with an income of more than a million dollars a year. Heck, according to The Millionaire Next Door, the average millionaire has a household income of only around $247,000! A Founders Crown Ambassador likely has an income at least ten times that of the average millionaire.
But that doesn’t really show pokerpooner’s cluelessness about the Amway business as much as this – watch the video. Except for the last section, apparently in their home, all the “helicopters, planes, mansions, boats etc” are part of free, Amway supplied trips! The video clearly labels various Founders Council events, and the yacht highlighted is Amway’s yacht – The Enterprise. They don’t need Amway income or system income to pay for all this stuff, pokerpooner – it’s all free!
It makes you wonder how clueless some critics are about the rest of the Amway business, if they’re not even aware of the free trips included even when they’re clearly labelled in a video.
