Trade Show at Puryear Family Reunion 2011
Seeing as how I have such “fond” memories of the trade show at Family Reunion I thought I’d check the WWDB web page and see if there’s any mention of the kind of trade show treats that await the poor bastards going to the Amway WWDB Family Reunion in
in July 2011. Boise Idaho
. Waterpark anyone?
This year’s fakey trade show seems slightly different than the one I attended. They’re calling the Friday night trade show workshops and seminars. It sounds like it might be more or less the same thing as the trade show I went to. Booths and demos. Stingy demos judging by the dixie cup of Perfect Water and packet of one use Artistry face cream that we received.
How’s this for a way to kill a Friday night?
1. Learning about standing orders and digital delivery. Yeah right. I’d rather be learning this bullshit than attending a Friday night Rolling Stones concert.
2. Introducing the new WWDB app. Yeah sucks if you don’t have an iPhone. Expect the cult leaders to be riding their downline’s asses to buy new phones so they can buy this new app. More money flushed down the old Amway tool scam toilet!
3. Demonstrating how Legacy of Clean works. Here’s a news flash for those pompous Amway bastards. Most women learned how to operate a washing machine and dishwasher by the time they were twelve years old. Sorry guys this might have been a skill that took you a little longer to learn! We all know how to use laundry soap and dishwasher soap. We figured it out a long time ago. Through trial and error over the years we figured out which detergents do a good job of getting our clothes/dishes clean. We know the approximate prices of just about every soap out there because we’re good comparison shoppers. We know a good deal and will buy an extra one if its on sale. We all know that Amway’s soap is overpriced and there are better, less expensive options in the market. You can be pretty certain whoever is demonstrating this bullshit had to go to a lot of trouble to find maybe the one soap out there in the world that doesn’t clean as well as Amway.
4. Nutrilite Weight Management. Uh huh. Judging by some of the speakers who hit the stage we all see how good this product works! There’s about a 95% failure rate for people who try diets like this. Almost the same odds as the failure rate of people who don’t earn money in Amway. This is one company that loves to stack the odds against you and design their systems for failure!
5. Fast Track! Make money! Yeah, yeah! I’ve heard it all before! They were calling it Fast Track when we were in too!
6. Artistry will be there again doling out stingy sized sample packets.
Avon is more generous with their samples. Less expensive. More variety. Need I say more? Artistry sucks!
So that tells me about 6 exhibitors/snake oil pitchers will be at the trade show. In my previous post I didn’t remember how many though I thought less than 10. We zipped through the trade fair in less than 20 minutes. This time they’re forcing “serious business builders” to stay a little longer by enticing them with “very important” seminars spaced out over a couple of hours. The seminars and demos start at various times between 6:30pm and 8:30pm. Don’t get your undies in a knot. Those seminars last about 5 minutes. There’s only so many ways you can bullshit about a lousy product.
There are more fun ways to spend a hot July weekend in
