America's Richest Families Full Of Amway Ambots?
Here’s a link to a list from Forbes on America’s richest families. For some reason it drops to the bottom of the list so scroll up.
Comes out of this piece http://www.forbes.com/families/
No one should be surprised to see the owners of Walmart are in the #1 slot, worth $152 billion. Their closest family competition is $60 billion less. One of America’s best known families The Kennedy’s are in a 7 way race for last place on the list with a paltry $1 billion.
But lets get to the good stuff because Amway ambots are always stopping by here to brag about how Amway Diamonds are worth billions and billions so that’s gotta be worth more than the Kennedys right? There’s a search bar at the top of the list so I plugged in a few Diamond names Puryear, Britt,…. Nothing. They’re missing from the list. How can that be? Ambots show up here bragging about their cult leaders riches all the time. Remember billions and billions. I plug in Duncan - I got a hit! #10 on the list worth $25.4 billion!!!! Wow!!!! OK Now don’t get too excited. Turns out to be some Texas oil family. Not some pyramid scheme kingpin!
So lets hit up the owners of Amway because everyone knows that’s really where the money is.
DeVos. Nope nothing. Not as rich as Amway ambots claim he is apparently!
Van Andel. Now I got a hit. Worth $4.7 billion. #57 on the Forbes list. They didn’t get all their money just from to narrow down the Forbes description, pounding the pavement hawking their cleaning products door to door. They have investments like the Ambot often bragged about Peter Island is owned by the Van Andel family fortune. That’s what you do with your money, find ways to invest it so it makes more money for you. De Vos must have followed the beat of their own drummer or you’d think they’d be somewhere on that billionaire list in the same area as their partner.
I get outraged Amway ambots who show up here screeching that there’s a better chance of getting rich in Amway than there is in Walmart. Yeah tell us another fairy tale you dumb fucks! I still say the best way to get rich in Amway is to marry one of the heirs. That’s probably a good way to get rich from Walmart too. But say you don’t marry into one of these family fortunes and you’re an employee. We know from reading the small print on Amway’s literature that out of Amway’s commissioned sales force only a fraction of 1% who make money. I get Amway employees who work in the various warehouse showing up here complaining about their slave wages and shitty working conditions. It seems unlikely you’re going to get rich in Amway so lets look at Walmart. Walmart managers make around $100,000/year. I’m sure they get performance bonuses too which would probably bring them into the same range of what Amway publishes a Diamond makes. Store staff probably fluctuates all over the place depending on position, hours worked in a week, etc but most staff probably make thousands of dollars each year.
That would be thousands of dollars more than an Amway ambot makes!
