The Secret Knowledge Club - and Wouldn’t You Like to be a Member
Amway is full of secrets. Some would even claim that the secret to financial success can be found by becoming an Amway salesperson.
Our sack of shit Platinum was always lording it over us that he held the secret to becoming successful in Amway even though after 15 or 20 years he still had failed to move on to the hallowed ground of Emerald or Diamond.
But whatever - it was something he gloatingly held over our heads. He held the secret and wouldn’t we want to be in his good books and become a member of this secret knowledge club that he was an esteemed member of and learn from him.
Gag! Puke! Fuck you you sack of shit Platinum. The only knowledge I want from you is how we can quit and get back the money we wasted on Amway.
So what secrets do Amway and their brainwashed ambots hold? Actually that’s too broad a question. Amway the company has all kinds of secrets like how much they’re paying ambots in commission each month and breaking it down into a table so prospects can fully understand the business they’re getting into and potential profits they can expect to receive. Columns broken down into number of ambots earning less than $10 a month Between $10 and $50. Between $50 and $100. And so on though numbers would get scarce around the $50 mark. Also how many Amway products are sold to people who are not registered IBO’s. How many Diamonds there are. How much does each Amway product cost to produce and what is the mark up that ambots get dinged with. Those kind of things.
I’ll leave Amway the company out of this discussion. My blog is all about trashing my upline. If I have to trash Amway in the process so be it but not my primary objective.
So what secrets do our Amway upline hold. Part of the secret knowledge club means knowing how to scam and brainwash others. From what I’ve observed here are some characteristics some of the people in our upline held. Fucking assholes like our sponsor and his sponsor didn’t have these traits. The scary thing is half of these traits are not really all that bad. The difference is the people who like everyone they meet and get along well with others who have no ulterior motive in mind other than being a good friend or a good salesperson as opposed to Amway scammers who are only out to rip off others.
1. Likeable, personable, ability to relate well with just about everyone.
2. Have an answer for everything.
3. Offers expensive coaching, mentoring sessions.
4. Calmly deal with unhappy customers, downline.
5. Able to bullshit their way out of any sticky situation.
6. Good speaker, good rapport with an audience.
7. Ability to put people at ease.
8. Good at selling: Amway products, business plan, tickets to functions, etc.
Members of Amway’s secret knowledge club learn the above secrets and how to effectively put them to use so the victim does not realize they’re being scammed. Befriend the victim. Be the victim’s best friend. Convince them to buy overpriced useless Amway products and pay big bucks to attend Amway functions.
Being a member of Amway’s secret knowledge club is learning how to use your powers for evil instead of good.
