Dodging the Amway Bullet
Anna, I just became a big fan of this blog. I *almost* started seriously dating someone heavily into Amway. I really loved her, I really cared....but thank God I never did. Guess why? Amway. I hate Amway more than any other company in the world. They are not even a legitimate business in my opinion. They are in the business of manipulating people into forking over money. It is horrible, sick, and wrong. I heard a rumor somewhere that the French government ran them out of their country and pursued them in the US Courts for a while. Thankfully, I'm married to a sweet person who loves me and is definitely not into Amway! However, I do work hard, have a strong desire to try my hand at REAL entrepreneurship someday. Best wishes to you. Tell your ex-Ambot to think about exploring real entrepreneurship, something that solves a problem they want to solve or permits them to be creative in a way they deeply enjoy. Best wishes!
Yup I’d say you dodged the bullet on this one! There are very few single women in Amway so your ex is definitely in the minority. Amway or at least the assholes who go around leading Amway meetings gush about how Amway is a family business. But that ain’t gonna stop them from scamming anyone single or married out of their money. I wonder if the single women in Amway got there because the asshole that sponsored them told them it’s a good place to meet men who are going somewhere. Yeah if you consider to bankruptcy court as going somewhere!
Amway is a good old boy’s club with meetings and trainings for the men on how to be male chauvinist pigs and that the women in their lives should have some kind of unnatural devotion to you like a Stepford Wife. Since the 60’s women haven’t taken too kindly to that kind of male attitude. Amway isn’t a place for single women. Hell Amway isn’t a place for NO ONE!
Amway is not a legitimate business. At best it can be described as being a commissioned salesperson for Amway. Mostly its belonging to an expensive social club where the assholes in your Amway upline bully you into overbuying from your “own” Amway store. And if you’re a business owner and you’re the only customer that sounds like a one way trip to poor street.
