The $150 opportunity

Where else can you start your own business for only a $150 investment?

I can't tell you how many times I've heard those taunting words from someone upline. Usually punctuated by how your $150 investment will give you a million dollar business.

Well, if you really could get a million dollars by simply plunking down a $150 investment, everyone in the world would be doing it.

The cult leaders also promised the dollars would keep rolling in while we walked the beaches of the world. Do the work for a couple of years and then sit back and earn residual income for the rest of your life and never work again.

Yeah right.

The pompous sack of shit Platinum has been wasting his time on Amway for 20 years and he still works a day job and he spends every spare hour on Amway.

Unfortunately my Ambot lapped up every word the cult leaders said.

Unfortunately for our finances, those asshole cult leaders conveniently forgot to mention the costs of attending meetings, seminars, rallies, and major functions. No one mentioned buying CD's and books, premier membership in WWDB, Communikate, and extra phone bills. And absolutely none of those bastards told Ambot how he'd be paying higher prices for household items and the shipping costs of Amway products.

How did the Amway $150 opportunity now turn into costing several hundred dollars a month with no return on the investment?

How do those cult leaders convince their followers to keep throwing good money after bad?

I spent too many days feeling hopeless and powerless as I watched Ambot run thousands of dollars on to the credit card that previously had a zero balance.

Comments are moderated but we publish just about everything. Even brainwashed ambots who show up here to accuse us of not trying hard enough and that we are lazy, quitters, negative, unchristian dreamstealers. Like we haven’t heard that Amspeak abuse from the assholes in our upline!

If your comment didn’t get published it could be one of these reasons:
1. Is it the weekend? We don’t moderate comments on weekends. Maybe not every day during the week either. Patience.
2. Racist/bigoted comments? Take that shit somewhere else.
3. Naming names? Public figures like politicians and actors and people known in Amway are probably OK – the owners, Diamonds with CDs or who speak at functions, people in Amway’s publicity department who write press releases and blogs. Its humiliating for people to admit their association with Amway so respect their privacy if they’re not out there telling everyone about the love of their life.
4. Gossip that serves no purpose. There are other places to dish about what Diamonds are having affairs or guessing why they’re getting divorced. If you absolutely must share that here – don’t name names. I get too many nosy ambots searching for this. Lets not help them find this shit.
5. Posting something creepy anonymously and we can’t track your location because you’re on a mobile device or using hide my ass or some other proxy. I attracted an obsessed fan and one of my blog administrators attracted a cyberstalker. Lets keep it safe for everyone. Anonymous is OK. Creepy anonymous and hiding – go fuck yourselves!
6. Posting something that serves no purpose other than to cause fighting.
7. Posting bullshit Amway propaganda. We might publish that comment to make fun of you. Otherwise take your agenda somewhere else. Not interested.
8. Notice how this blog is written in English? That's our language so keep your comments in English too. If you leave a comment written in another language then we either have to use Google translate to put it into English so everyone can understand what you wrote or we can hit the Delete button. Guess which one is easier for us to do?
9. We suspect you're a troublemaking Amway asshole.
10. Your comment got caught in the spam filter. Gets checked occasionally. We’ll get to you eventually and approve it as long as it really isn’t spam.
