How Many Amway Cult Meetings In A 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 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. This appointment could be between 5pm to 7pm lasting 15 to 30 minutes or longer. This is usually held at a coffee shop where the meddling bastard wants to see a budget, a phone 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!
The board plan meeting was either held at the cult leader’s house or at the home of someone else in our line. 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 challenge 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 himself and what a wonderful cult leader he is or about something going on in the news. Ranting and raving mostly with a good dose of religion thrown in.
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 Denny’s. 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 go home. 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 have 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. Mostly he criticizes 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.
