So after another hazing meeting with the ambots my fiancé and I agree to join up. we fill out all the paper work pay our 'sign on' fee and get everything underway, we get signed up with WWDB and this conference line called Communikate which is the most frustrating thing to use and at 40 a month holy crap that's half my phone bill that I ACTUALLY USE.
So here we are we this business, we are kinda excited cause we get a retail site and etc and we are making the best of it together.
So my upline ambot friend is all excited that we are about to place our first order and we can start making money and be debt free in 12-18 months! Little did I know that you had spend 300 dollars just to hit your mark and have other people spend 150~ dollars just to hit your mark. After doing the math I would make a whopping 4 dollars, but wait! I would get a $50 for a newcomers sign on bonus if I hit my mark!
This is partially my fault for not doing enough research or asking enough questions so I am now in the making the best of it mode.
90% of the shit on the site I don't even buy anyways, the fuck are they saying I was going to spend money to buy this stuff anyways? I do like their shakes and energy drinks, but I don't buy them on a monthly basis, I don't buy cleaning products on a monthly basis, maybe one every other other month, so now we are forcing ourselves to buy enough to hit our mark and we are down 300 or so dollars for what? $54 bucks that shows up on the 15th.
I was so pissed and one foot out the door WITHIN 24 hours of being in amway/WWDB. I texted my upline even though he prefers Kate, but seriously? That shit takes like 5 mins to send a 5 second message, talk about adding 9 steps to something.
He calmed us down by saying it just the initial 'shock' that everyone goes through etc etc. I was like whatever man and just went with it. I tried to see the light at the end of the tunnel, I figured we were testing all the products and we should see what we should try to give out as samples so the initial cost was whatever.
Then came these stupid meetings twice a week for 3 hours starting at 8pm. I didn't think it was that bad until it was the same people and same presentation.
My fiancé and I were getting extremely demotivated and for good reason. As I mentioned before I already figured out the scam 24 hours in and felt so suckered but tried to turn into a positive.
We were about to attend the free enterprise meeting and we walked up to the door and saw the tons of ambots lining up and about to go in to listen to speaker speak his words of wisdom on how to get rich. We were I think 2nd in line and we were like no way and got the fuck out of there and spent that 20 bucks to get dinner lol.
I got calls and texts from my uplines asking where we were. I told them we didn't want to do this anymore (I did not want to offend so I Didn't say you are so brainwashed etc etc) and that we were just going to buy and sell LIKE A NORMAL RETAIL SITE DOES. I got a text from my friend ambot and then he tried to call me I was like dude this is not what it was presented, even after listening to your CDs it all makes sense. There is a reason why you hide the fact its amway cause of all the bad press it has. You are forcing yourself to believe in something that's not true. The he tries and say don't listen to no one else just do your research on THE WWDB AND AMWAY sites, o ok cause that's not going to be biased opinions, and only talk to people 'in the business' about stuff o yeah cause ambots are totally gonna tell the truth of nah bro amway is horrible stay away lol.
He speaks of power of association, and tries to tell me not to listen to people who don't make a lot of money cause you will be BROKE like them. Hey guess what I make more money than you and 90% of the people that are at your meetings why the fuck would I listen to you about making money?
Those people he is 'tied' into make their money not from selling amway products but from the monthly fees you pay and for buying tickets to their brainwashing seminars.
He got his upline to call me and wanted to have 'a man to man' talk about my concerns and I told him, this mother fucker had a response to everything and he was saying o you must not care about your fiancé if you are just gonna trade time for money like everyone else with a job. I was like are you fucking serious? What I do love is having a job that pays me and not a job that I have to pay it so that I can pay for all this nice stuff and house so that my fiancé and I can come home to dipshit.
O here is my other rant about Kate, thing is sucha POS and 99% of the shit messages I get on there marked 'urgent' is from the sack of shit plat or diamond saying how he went to the doctors and his vitamin B levels are low or that he just got out of the shower and wanted us to know he's FIRED UP about how well we are doing. I am learning so much from that shit.
Seriously? I am paying 40 bucks for a fucking facebook hotline I have to call/login into every few hours? No fucking thanks. I cancelled that shit so fast along with the 'learning' material.
I still do have the site as being a member I get 40 bucks off my phone bill along with other perks that makes up for the 50 bucks I pay a month on it. And I do enjoy some of the products, I do my research and compare prices, fuck their opinion of quality. Why the hell would I buy your laundry detergent for twice the price of oxy fucking clean? Oxy fucking clean works like champ costs half the price and comes with twice the amount.
Anways my ambot friend still tries to get me to the Family reunion that happened last week in Portland. PASS ill spend my $555 bucks elsewhere and I live 10 minutes away why the fuck would I pay for a hotel?
Anways I hope someone enjoys reading this and as I do enjoy reading the blogs and watching the dateline exposing Quixtar video that was funny straight up cult.
