How Many Amway Meetings Each Night?

Its bad enough on the night of an Amway meeting to actually have to attend but the horror of horrors is that there are usually several Amway meetings planned for the evening and some ambots have the misfortune of attending all of them. The first is a “pre-meeting” with the Platinum but that’s only if you’ve scheduled an appointment and if the fucker deems you worthy of his attention. Seeing as how ambots all have J.O.B.s no matter how hard they try to bullshit you they’re “business owners” and own their own business these appointments would be in the early evening after the Platinum and the ambots are off work for the day, so lets call it this appointment could be between 5pm and 7pm lasting 15 to 30 minutes or longer. This is usually held at a fast food restaurant or a coffee shop where the meddling bastard wants to see a budget, a contact list, or ride everyone’s asses why they weren’t bringing prospects to meetings and lack of customers. If we were “privileged” to have the first appointment we were expected to buy the Platinum a coffee and snack. Even if we weren’t first sometimes the Platinum just turned to Ambot and asked him to get him a burger. No cash exchanged hands and of course Ambot hopped into action because the cult leader had stroked his ego and called him a server. Yeah in more ways than one! Serve me a burger and coke you fucking lowly IBO!
The Amway board plan meeting was either held at the cult leader’s house or someone elses house. They started at 8pm.
I’ve got better things I can be doing at 8pm like some good TV shows are on then. Ambot used to duplicate the assholes in his Amway upline and bitch at me and say “how is watching TV making me any money?” Well at least we weren’t losing any money by staying home and watching TV! Can’t say the same thing about time and money wasted at Amway meetings!
The pompous sack of shit Platinum loves the sound of his own voice. He’d spend the first hour telling the same old bullshit stories mostly about what a wonderful cult leader he is or about something going on in the news. Or doom and gloom predictions with all these businesses closing down. Ranting and raving mostly and often with a good dose of religion thrown in as following the Jim Jones manual for running cult meetings!

Maybe take him an hour or longer to fess up and mention the dreaded Amway word. He’d use a whiteboard and flash cards to present the Amway business plan. Eat, drink, and duplicate. Find other people and teach them to do the same. Find enough people and you'll be earning $300,000 a year.

The board plan drags on for 3 hours because he keeps getting sidetracked and goes off on various rants usually something negative that's happening in the news. The sack of shit loves spreading negativity and scaring his ambots into submission.

I was ready to go home before I even arrived. By 11pm I just want to get the hell out of here. Go home. Go to a bar. Go to McDonalds. Anywhere but listening to the sack of shit!

Then the cult leader finally takes a break. Yay! We can go home. Then horrors! It ain't over yet! Anyone who’s not a “serious business builder” or anyone who brought guests can take them home so that pretty much means everyone stays because nobody can con a prospect sucker into attending and of course everyone in the room wants to get the glowing praise of being a “serious business builder”. The rest of us unfortunate bastards are stuck for round 2 or maybe round 3 if you were unfortunate enough to be part of the pre-meeting bullshit. Sometimes Ambot can catch a ride home with someone else and tells me to go home. Yee haw! I don’t stick around in case Ambot or the cult leader changes their collective brainwashed mind.

I stayed for too many late night teachings. These meetings last another hour or two. Very typical for Amway cult meetings to last well past Midnight. When cult followers are tired its easier to brainwash their minds. Now is when the pompous sack of shit criticizes the way people dress, the car they drive, their haircut, the people they hang out with, etc. Bitch bitch bitch. Mostly he bitches at the group for not sponsoring anyone or bringing prospects to meetings. He'll talk about the movers and shakers in his downline and sing their praises for the rest of the meeting gabbing on about how those are the people going Platinum, going Diamond. Not so far! Including him the fucking loser!

No teaching. No business advice. Lots of rants. That sums up what people are really doing late at night at Amway meetings.

Getting brainwashed!


  1. The meetings are one thing that REALLY turned me off of Amway. There were 4 or 5 of us up front who got tricked into going, and were potential downlines. One held at a residential house talked about the following (in no particular order)... PV; getting more of it; some of the vitamins that offered the highest PV; training materials that we should try to go through 1 of them a day (upline goon said he himself goes through 2 to 3 a day); a presentation by a Amway member who did a typical sales pitch comparing Amway products vs. some that have chemicals known to be used as rat poison for example ("look it up!"), but in another meeting, they tried passing off the benefits of oxygenated water; charts on payments for getting downlines going across and down... I was soo bored out of my skull that I vowed to never go to one of these again! You couldn't *pay me* to go to another one of these!

    The meetings held in conference halls where they try to sucker in new recruits are bad in their own way. The short story here is I felt great, with high positive energy. They ask the audience what they would do with $50/mo, $5000/yr, or whatever similar amount, and other ridiculous things like that. They used the same line too... how the job economy is bad, and an Amway couple made a pitch by saying they both got laid off of their IT jobs many years ago, etc.

    However, as usual, they never tell you what the job description or anything useful. That's how to get the BS-o-meter over the edge! The meetings at the conference halls go for about 1 hour to 1.5 hours. The meeting at the private house... was at least 1.5 hours, to 2 hours? It felt longer though... Either way, they're all time wasted. I do feel for those whose Amway meetings exceed 3 hours, into midnight.

    1. There are so many things that can turn off people besides Amway meetings. The people involved in Amway, the Amway products, the abuse from the Amway upline, losing money, being forced to alienate friends and family.....

      And you're right those meetings only seemed longer than they actually were. That's what happens when you listen to some sack of shit Scamway cult leader leading some quasi religious revival tent meeting and screaming at cult followers who didn't bring prospects or weren't CORE and telling lies about how much money he's making in the Amway scam and don't we all want to be like him.

      No. Not everyone wants to go around screwing people out of their hard earned money and causing financial and emotional distress. That's something only assholes in Amway get their jollies out of.

  2. The meetings are the worst when it came to amway, especially if there was a meeting held on the weekend. There's the ride to the meeting, then there's the pre-meeting before the actual meeting. Then there is the actual team meeting that last roughly 4 to 5 hours long. After that you think everything is over right, wrong cuz there is the good ol nightowl meeting that can go 4 to 5 hours long too and that's when the upline diamonds go on his rants how Amway is the only thing you can do to be successful. The weekend functions are even worse when it comes to meetings because it's friday night to sunday night non-stop meetings with long sessions, day owl (yeah Amway names the after meetings during the day too), and night owl meetings. Ugghhh

    1. Hi Anonymous. You summed it up. Amway is just continuous meetings for ambots to keep them busy so they don't notice how much money they're losing.

    2. Not only that, but the continuous meetings and functions actually takes away from the IBO's business time so the odds are against them regardless. The meetings and functions are nothing more than the same canned recycled shit that has been said time after time after time.

    3. Yup you got it. Wasting time at an Amway meeting when you could be doing something more constructive like letting the air out of the tire of shitmobiles.

  3. OMG, the interminable, every-freakin-night meetings! I remember how badly I wanted my life back. Wanted to go see my parents, or do something with friends not in Amway (and not have my then-husband bother them about Amway), or spend a weekend having fun for a change. The only thing worse than the local meetings were the big come-to-Jesus (literally) gatherings! Couple after overdressed couple strutting onto the stage to say the same thing, over and over. "Work the business or you're a loser! Only losers don't work the business! Look how successful I am!"

    The time I served in Amway was all the way back in the 1970s... but I still have PTSD. I cringe whenever I hear the word Amway.

    1. Snazzy bird - you have just summed up the thoughts of every Amway widow out there! The horror of the Amway scam doesn't leave you even decades later? OMG there's no hope for me!!!!

      Yeah weren't they hilarious showing up overdressed on the stage in tuxedoes and evening gowns. You'd think they were extras on the old TV show the Love Boat!

  4. Sometimes they (Network21)have these extremity important meetings, which they only fortunate ones can attend. You can only attend this meting if you get at least 20 people with yourself and which makes you a VIP.
    I wonder what kinda VIP - Very Immoral Person.


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.
