FED = Free Enterprise Days and it is a World Wide Dream Builder major function held on a weekend in October.

This event was being shoved down our throats before the Family Reunion function in July had finished. Ambot had to ante up the cash for the tickets while we were still at the Family Reunion.

We had to drive 2 states away to attend. After the debacle driving to Family Reunion I refused to allow any passengers in my car. Oh, I was a bad little IBO. How selfish of me not to want to spend my money on gas and wear and tear on my car for the privilege of enduring Amway speak from some demented, brainwashed passenger on an all day drive. Three months ahead of the function the upline were arranging car pools and sharing of hotel rooms. Yeah, right. I really want to share a hotel room with a bunch of kids. The upline chose a rather expensive hotel and said we should all get reservations there before it sold out.

I had a better idea. I was going to fix those bastards. I told Ambot I was bringing the dog with us. I found a hotel that takes dogs and booked a room there at about a quarter of the price of the hotel the upline were staying at. Once word got out that any passengers would be sharing the back seat with a shedding, panting dog, no one was too eager to hitch a ride with us. Go figure!

Pissed off the Platinum to the nth degree that he didn’t have all his cult followers in the same hotel.

The upline still badgered Ambot to drive to their hotel room after the day’s bullshit session ended so they could have their “night owl”. Its after midnight and everyone is tired. All the better to brainwash the IBO’s. Thanks but I think I’ll stay in the hotel room with my dog. He’s better company than those Amway morons.


  1. Being from Hawaii, I recall an FED in San Diego. It costed me over $1000 when it was said and done. Airfare during peak travel season, hotels, rental cars, FED tickets, meals. And being in Hawaii, we had 3 major functions where travel was required during peak travel season.

    FED was and still is a joke. I do not believe Amway is free enterprise. Amway IBOs are commissioned sales people with no guaranteed salary and no benefits.

  2. My upline diamond convinced my friend to buy 10 extra family reunion tickets at 75.00 a pop. At that point i was inactive in the business. So my buddy who didnt wanna be embarassed invited a bunch of family,friends,coworkers,and me to the dinner. Your story brings back creepy memories about wwdb and amway

  3. If they'd ever had a major function in Hawaii I'd have gladly gone. Though I'd have hit the beach instead of the auditorium!

  4. Anna, Did your hubby and you lose any friends or relatives because of this cult? I woulda told mny upline to f themselves if I had drive two states to a function. I didnt even want to go to the local ones.

  5. Actually, there were major functions in Hawaii. If you were in the Wood or Taba business, they held their "Leadership, now called Spring Conference" in Hawaii and mainland IBOs in our group had to come to Hawaii for Dream Nite. I guess that's one way to ruin a Hawaiian vacation, make the trek only for your Amway business??

  6. Unfortunately we did not lose any of Ambot's relatives. That would have been totally bonus! No, I wouldn't say we lost any friends either despite Ambot's best attempts to sneer at them and accuse them of not supporting his business. Let alone some of these are people who send thousands, if not tens of thousands, worth of business annually our way in our real business.

  7. When i was in amway i told no relatives or friends about it or shown them the plan. Gee so f ckin embarassing selling this stuff. Maybe it was good to see how lame amway was early on and not continued. Even without the internet i thought this business was gay.

  8. Anna,

    Why did you even go to the function, given you didn't even make phone calls to prospects?


    "Costed?" LOL


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.
