Quixtar Cult Intervention has the scoop; also, read their other recent posts.

Amway--great people to do business with. They file suit (the fourth or fifth one) against a former high-level couple. On the day before the wife undergoes a nine hour surgery to remove a brain tumor. And guess what? Amway knew she was having the surgery a week earlier, and decided to file on that particular day. Say what you will about tool kingpins and blah, blah, blah, but really...this is stooping pretty low.

You SERIOUSLY need to get a life. The amount of time you spend bashing Amway is so pathetic. Can't you find anything positive to do with your time? Seriously to be so harsh against people who are just trying to have a better life, and in this economy, just makes you lower than low.

You'd think if they're so rich as they claim they are and can make everyone else, they wouldnt need to go to such measures

Anonymous, there is nothing wrong with wanting to have a better life, but to harass others to join Amway makes the lives of others much worse and outweighs any happiness joining a cult can provide.

A statue has never been raised to a critic. Losers make excuses, winners get results

Haha, a statue has never been made of an Amway diamond. IBO's make excuses, all others get things done.

I just wanted to discourage anyone from entering into this business. I was an IBO for a little over a year when it was still called Quixtar. I am not a failed, lazy, no one without a dream. Actually, the opposite is true. The long and short of it is- I had two small children at the time, spent night after night on the road "chasing the dream". Lost time with my children, built a fairly large TEAM by Quixtar standards. My largest check was $155.00. I still believed, did 100 pv faithfully (at very least). Ran credit cards up and my family into bankruptcy. (They'll tell you that's ok saying it will "take your stress away"). Now, I have a real estate license, my family has recovered (thankfully) from the bankruptcy, and I apologize profusely to everyone I see, now, that I pulled into that business back when. Please take my advice from a (now) financially free woman, who did it the right way. I worked a legitimate job that paid money- and am now, truly, financially free. Good Luck. Please research fully before making a decision about this business. If it seems too good to be true- it usually is. May God Bless You!

dum basses its not a business its your business and all about how YOU can manage it, time management and money management just cause you couldn't handle yourself doesn't mean you can blame others, by the way i know some people who went bankrupt with real estate. man people are so dumb

LC, I'm sorry to hear your business didn't work out well. I really feel sorry to hear an ex-fellow IBO who did 100 PV failed. I agree that there are lots of IBO's who don't achieve success in this business. But its really about team work, and with the right mentorship, and with the proper time spent it works well.
