No Gold At End Of Amway Rainbow

Here’s a comment left by a reader who got the classic scam treatment to sign up to the Amway cult.

Thank you for your post, and I am very sad that I did not see this sooner. I was introduced to Amway and WWDB (World Wide Dream Builders) by a guy at my last job. I had just graduated college, and was pressured to get a job quickly.

The place where I met my "Mentor's Disciple," because he refused to actually be my mentor was a call center. He said, he was not in a position to be an effective mentor for me and that his mentor would be the person I would truly learn from. That's awfully strange considering you are the one talking to me about this business, but it did trick me into thinking he was looking out for my best interest.

Needless to say, I went to his house meeting, and a meeting at a church where I was told a lot of nonsense, and after the first meeting at the church from the "Diamond" I said this guy is illiterate and I don't understand what I'm supposed to do. The "Mentor's Disciple" said maybe you didn't click with him, but someone else will hopefully make more sense to you.

So they sent me to a 3 day meeting over 6 hours in travel time combined to come to these seminars called Freedom something where I heard from 15 different diamonds, and still had no idea what the business was. All they did was show videos of their expensive life styles and tell people don't listen to your friends, family, or any other naysayer because they will never understand.

Finally,I told my real mentor after asking ten times if you don't show me some numbers, I will never sign up. He then showed me how I have to spend money on the dvd's, the membership, and the expensive trips out of state to go to these meetings. It would've cost me close to 10k that year with the products and I wouldn't have sold anything.

I was so frustrated with this, and when I confronted him he basically taught me how to divert parts of my paycheck to cover these expenses...What a joke, the guy had been in this business for 2 years, and was an Island's Manager (Basically the same price point as a TGI Friday's). This guy was getting nowhere fast and he only had 6 "followers" at this point.

With all of this said, and it is probably very difficult to follow due to my erratic thought process,I gave it a legitimate chance.This is why I can fairly say there is no gold at the end of this rainbow. I am very glad that I only wasted a small portion of my life to learn a valuable lesson, and they got me at one of my most desperate times. I was getting married soon, with no job security, and trying to have a kid. These people aren't just greedy they are inhumane to hunt out people that were in positions like mine.


  1. Amway thrives on NOT TELLING PROSPECTIVE IBOS THE TRUTH. They hide information from you. They cover up the facts with a lot of razzle-dazzle propaganda.

    The whole purpose of Amway is simply to rope people into buying "The Plan," but getting Amway recruiters to tell you all the details of what is involved in "The Plan" is like pulling teeth. In fact, their supervisors instruct them NEVER to be specific and detailed about what is involved in Amway.

    1. Anonymous - ain't that the truth. Truth. A word foreign to the ears of Amway Ambots.

      That's why this blog and others talk about what its really like in Amway. The lies and lines the Ambots use to scam prospects.

      And the other thing you didn't mention when Ambots are roping suckers in - never say the A word. How about that for never being specific and detailed if they don't say Amway.



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.
