One Shortlived Downline

Yes, you read the title correctly. My Ambot actually sponsored one downline, let's call him Trevor, an old acquaintance who's willing to support my husband no matter what it is. If he's in, that was good enough for Trevor.

So Ambot got the one downline shortly after signing up with Amway and all of a sudden he's like the golden boy with all the upline, with congratulations, and wow look how fast you sponsored a new IBO.

This was just before Family Reunion. The pressure was on to Ambot and his new downline to get to the function. Trevor made last minute plans to drive down with our sponsor, aka Captain Fuck Up. If you missed that debacle, the story is here. This explains why Trevor didn't get there.

Ambot's new upline like the good little IBO he wanted to be paid the $150 Amway join up fee and purchased a few products like Perfect Water, Amway's answer to all of life's ailments.

A week or two after he'd signed up Trevor was supposed to come to an Amway meeting and beforehand meet up with our pompous sack of shit Platinum. For whatever reason, he didn't make it. The pompous sack of shit was outraged! How dare one of the IBO's in his downline disrespect him like that. The pompous sack of shit has one of his underlings phone Trevor to chew him out for not showing up.

Yes, people in their 50's really enjoy being chewed out by a cult follower in their 20's. Yeah right!

So Trevor got his revenge by immediately quitting.

I told the Ambot we should do the same. But no, Ambot wanted to continue on anyway.

Ambot never sponsored another downline.

Ambot's experience is typical. Most IBO's never sponsor a downline. And those who do have trouble retaining their downline.


  1. Actually you husband did something most IBOs never do - sponsor a downline. Sadly, you need to sponsor hoards of downline just to have a chance of succeeding. I believe my former sponsor personally sponsored more than 100 downline and he has never even achieved Q12 platinum. Right now I heard he's at 2500 or so, 16 years of losing money.

  2. Unfortunately we don't know hoards of people. The people we know don't want anything to do with Amway other than a couple of pity purchases to get Ambot off their back about supporting his business.


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.
