Amway Business License
I hadn’t gone to an Amway meeting in a long time, but one night after his prospect no showed I agreed to accompany Ambot to listen to the boring Emerald spew out some bullshit.
It had been at least 5 months since I’d last listened to this guy. He surprised me when he talked about the start up costs and said it costs $150 for the Amway business license.
Huh? That’s a first. Is that what they're calling it now? I’ve always understood a business license to be purchased from city hall where one’s company is doing business. It was clear the Emerald was talking about the Amway start up fee/registration because he mentioned the value of the Amway sample pack that new IBO’s receive after paying their $150 Amway Business License is about half that amount in Amway products.
The change from Amway Starter Kit to Amway Business License must have come down from some Diamond upline of him in an effort to make “the business” sound more legitimate. I doubt boring old Emerald thought this one up all on his own. One person in the audience asked about this Amway business license, if that meant they could do business in their city without going to city hall to purchase a business license.
Fortunately the Emerald did say that IBO’s would have to check with their city for guidelines about business licenses to find out whether or not it was required where they lived.
Probably the only decent business advice I’ve ever heard given out at an Amway meeting.
