How Many Amway Ambots Try Hard Enough

“You didn’t try hard enough!” Is the battle cry of brainwashed ambots.

I’ve heard it lots of times. At Amway meetings and on this blog whenever some brainwashed ambot who has been religiously studying at Amspeak College shows up to accuse me of quitting Amway because I wasn’t trying hard enough.

However not one single ambot who I know personally or who enjoys reading and commenting on what they perceive to be “negative” blogs like this one has ever once defined the criteria of what is “trying hard enough”. Or for that matter what “not trying hard enough” is either.

Ambot wanted to succeed at this Amway business, even though the odds with a 99% failure rate were stacked against him that he wouldn't. More than the promised financial freedom with the gazillions of dollars in residual income that would magically show up each month in our bank account, success in Amway would mean basking in the bliss from the Amway cult leaders that he adored so much.

All over the Internet are blogs and forums from former Amway IBO’s who say pretty much the same thing. They worked hard, put a lot of hours and effort into building an Amway business, and despite doing everything their cult leaders told them to do and being CORE it didn’t work out.

Ambot worked hard and put in plenty of effort to build an “Amway business”. He spent hours glued to the computer taking the Amway university program and studying the Amway literature and product magazines. He memorized everything and could answer questions about the Amway board plan or Amway products and knew as much or more than his upline. He spent hours listening to recordings of a bunch of fucked up Amway cult leaders gloating about their riches. Ambot read the books that the assholes in his Amway upline pressured him to buy. He spent countless hours each week hounding prospects to come to meetings. He went to every Amway meeting, rally, seminar, and major function. All those meetings ate up at least 50 hours a month and if a major function out of state for the weekend was in there, easily over 100 hours a month attending Amway meetings including travelling to them.

Let’s not forget the hours each week he spent talking on the phone and dealing with the endless text messages from the fucking upline Amway assholes.

Ambot easily doubled, if not tripled, Amway’s estimate of 10 to 15 hours per week once all the meetings, listening to tapes, and studying Amway shit is added up. Ambot put in plenty of time and effort and worked hard at trying to build an Amway “business” and still those fucking assholes in his Amway upline bitched and accused him of not working hard enough. Amway is a blame the victim scam and ambot was brainwashed to believe he wasn’t succeeding at the Amway “business” was because he wasn’t trying hard enough.

Let’s see. Someone investing at least 100 hours a month into any project is trying pretty hard. They are on a mission and determined to succeed and accomplish their goal even when the odds are stacked against them, like Amway’s success rate of a fraction of less than 1%.

What kind of motivation techniques is the upline using bitching at the downline and accusing them of not trying hard enough? This is clearly more than the assholes in our Amway upline because so many former IBO’s have the same story that their upline said the exact same thing. And clearly is still being taught today judging by comments left on this blog by angry brainwashed ambots: “You didn’t try hard enough!”

Yeah? Well fuck you!



  1. Amway freaks cannot admit that failure might NOT be the fault of the individual IBO. If they did admit it, it would open up a huge can of worms. People would have to start wondering about the objective truth of Amway's claims.

    If a very hard-working IBO doesn't make it in Amway, and if his failure has nothing to do with his intense activity and energy and commitment, then it logically follows that external reasons are to blame.

    Amway freaks will say "Yeah, he had a bad up-line," or "There was too much competition from cross-lines in his area." But that's as far as they will go. They will NEVER admit that the sacred Amway "Plan" has any flaws in it, or that the whole structure of Amway is designed to enrich higher-ups at the expense of down-line.

    They HAVE to blame the victim. There's no other way for them to explain what happened while staying loyal to the Amway lie.

    1. Anonymous - it's amazing the dedication that Amway Ambots have that their sacred Amway "business plan" has no flaws to it. However anyone who has only a small sense of business smarts can figure out that any "business" where only a tiny fraction of 1% will make money is flawed and is a system designed for failure.

      It's like saying play the Powerball for 2 to 5 years and you're guaranteed to become a multi millionaire.

      If it doesn't happen it means the right numbers didn't come up. But whoever gave that bad lottery advice will say the victim went to the wrong retailer to buy tickets.

      In Amway if you aren't rolling in bazillions of dollars in 2 to 5 years the Ambots will say you had a bad upline, you didn't try hard enough, you didn't put the work in.

      Amway is a blame the victim scam and the victims are brainwashed to believe that what they did or did not do has caused them not to get rich. These bastards really believe it!

      It couldn't possibly have anything to do with Amway's brochures and the small print that says something like only .00000666% will make money. Or more precisely the small print refers to the money that is being used in the example Amway gives with all the circles, which is generally a small amount like $500 or $600/month. The odd of making money that will actually pay the bills so the ambot can quit their job are even more astronomical.

      Yup Amway Ambots are loyal to the Amway lie and their devotion to the Great Amway God. Sickening. And frustrating if you're married to an Ambot.

  2. Actually, statistically speaking, Amway has effectively a 100% failure rate when rounded to the nearest whole number. Those who actually succeed in Amway are statistically insignificant, just like people who win the power ball lottery.

    1. Joecool - you're right. When you round it up to the nearest whole number Amway is pretty much 100% failure rate. Without knowing the top secret information from Amway about how many IBO's are out there, I'm guessing the number of Ambots who make money, and here I'm talking at least a part time salary not $10/month rebate if you buy $300 shitty overpriced Amway products, could be anywhere between 1 out of 20,000 to 1 out of 50,000 participants. So effectively that makes Amway 100% failure rate. The odds of winning at least $100 or more in the lottery are probably about the same 1 in 20 to 50,000.

  3. If you believe in something despite all evidence to the contrary, that by definition is a RELIGIOUS belief.

    In Amway, you believe you will become rich even though statistically speaking the failure rate in Amway is 100%.

    Amway is a RELIGION, not a business venture. That is why they have to keep the religious fervor of IBOs hot by making them attend fantasy-festivals like Free Enterprise Day and Family Reunion and all the other silly "functions."

    That jackass Dexter Yager goes around the room whispering into the ear of every IBO: "Do you BELIEVE?? Do you BELIEVE?"

    If that isn't a religion, what is?

    1. Anonymous - it's a cult. With their own twisted religion. Amway the cult of Greed.

      The religious fervor at Amway functions is sickening watching those brainwashed Ambots. And that's really creepy when the Amway cult leaders go around whispering in ears BELIEVE!

      Do you BELIEVE you're a member of a creepy cult.

  4. Let us say a poor sap goes from one hour a month to 200 hours a month "trying hard" to build their Amway "business. Have their chances of "success" increase 200 times? Of corse not! From an actuarial point of view their chance of success has not increased at all (it is still zero). But why let mathmatical certainty get in the way of a good fantasy I guess.

    1. Anonymous - some things have a better chance of a mathematical certainty but Amway isn't one of them. I think there's a better chance of being struck by lightening than making as much as say $25/month in Scamway.


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.
