A Room Full of Winners!

At the Amway meetings I attended everyone was constantly reaffirmed (brainwashed) they were a “winner”. A winner simply by showing up! I was sitting in a roomful of winners! Wow!
Based on Amway definitions I guess it turns out I was always under the false impression that a winner was a person who actually wins something. Based on my definition I bet I was probably the biggest winner in the room. My first prize? A cake in a cakewalk! I’ve won countless small prizes in raffles and radio and TV contests like books, concert tickets, and Starbuck’s gift cards. I’ve won cash, maybe totalling$1000 several times on radio contests over the years years. I’ve even won a couple of trips from company Christmas parties where they purchased or got an airline to donate prizes.
How come I never win the lotteries for those million dollar houses???!!!!
I’d say I have a better track record than the rest of the room when it comes to being a winner. I’ve made more money on contests than I ever did in Amway! With no money invested. Just a little time. Not even 10 to 15 hours a week!
Everyone else in the room is a “winner” just because they showed up to the 8pm warrior meeting wearing a business suit.
Oh I get it! The winner is the person who catches the most prospects! The prize is the adoring affection of the Platinum.
No that can’t be right. The winners in this room rarely brought prospects. No adoring affection for any of them. Instead everyone was on the receiving end of the Platinum’s scorn.
The real winners? Those of us who said: “Fuck you. I’m outta here.”
Whatever happened to that roomful of “winners”? Are they winning or are they losing?
Some of those winners are still hanging in there losing their money and losing their downline. The rest of the winners hopped on the fuck you bandwagon.


  1. I too have an amway story. I know all too well how full of crap they
    are. I wrote my story and tried to post it here but it's not allowing
    me-- I think it's too long. I'm posting a link to what I wrote. Please
    check it out if you want a real person's story and not some amroid. If it can help even one family-- it's good. Keep up the good work!

    1. Anonymous - thank you for stopping by and letting us know about your blog. We'll put a link to it and drive some traffic to your site. It's a good thing when former ambots get their story out there. Maybe it'll help someone make a mistake and get involved in this scam. Or at least let them know they're not alone.


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.
