No TV watching allowed!
Our Emerald distributor once used a whiteboard where he drew a quadrant based on how much TV IBO’s were allowed to watch. All new IBO’s - or maybe it was IBO’s under 2500 pin levels - were in the square where no TV watching was allowed.
I’m not a big TV watcher but I do like a couple of reality shows. The only other TV viewing is the 6pm news if I’m home and almost always the 11pm news.
I probably watch 10 to 15 hours of TV a week so I’m not much of a watcher. Ironic numbers isn’t it. I’m sure any IBO would say I could take those same 10 to 15 hours I spend watching TV each week and turn it into earning $100,000/year.
Yeah, right, been down that road a couple of times.
Nothing any upline said to me was going to change my TV habits. Ambot would sometimes walk into the room when I was watching Survivor and sneer at me something to the effect of how is watching that show going to make me money. Here is a good time to point out that Ambot watches more TV than I do. He likes watching what he calls adult animation. I call them as I see them. Cartoons. How is watching Southpark or the Simpson’s making him money in his Amway business?
Getting back to that quadrant for the life of me I don’t recall what pin levels the Emerald put in each quadrant. I was only shown his expert mathematical equation once. Wherever he was as an Emerald he was allowed most of his free time to be spent watching TV. I guess what was never determined was how much free time he has in a week.
The bigger picture is the real reason the upline don’t want IBO’s watching TV is because they want to control the information sources their downline IBO’s receive. Any news or current affairs or stock market advice the IBO’s receive should all be coming from their upline.
You upline bastards can say whatever you want about watching TV. I watch less than TV than most of you and I’m not going to stop. At least if I’m home watching TV I’m not losing money throwing away $10 going to an Amway meeting to listen to the latest bullshit.
