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.
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.
