I Have a Friend....

I would consider him one of my best friends. He was involved in Amway for 5 years, then in Monavie for 1 year.

He's not in either one anymore, but he isn't angry and doesn't consider himself a failure. He reached a significant level in Amway (when I say significant level, I refer to Q-12 Platinum and above, not a low level pin like David Steadson aka IBOFB).

While he was active in the business, he was committed as could be. He went to the meetings, was on system, and did whatever it took. If anyone could build the business in North America, I truly believe it would have been him. He's a great man, and a fantastic human being in general. I like him.

Since he discovered who the Rocket is, he's asked a number of questions about my experience, and I in turn have asked him questions about his experience with Amway and being a part of Monavie, as well as TEAM.

There will be more about this in future posts to come, but the one thing that will stay with me is when he told me how he felt when he threw out his TEAM CD's. He looked at the huge pile and mentally added up the value, and did a mental head shake.

He also spoke of how utterly devastating the Dateline NBC report on Quixtar & Amway was. It was nice to hear a very frank commentary from someone. It was the first time I heard from anyone involved just how much that hurt the business.

I've told him my views (I think he already knew them) and he understands why I feel the way I do. In fact, I think he agrees with my opinions to a point.

He is my friend and I've always liked him despite the fact that he was involved in something I have a personal problem with.

I look forward to sharing what he wants me to share about his experience. If you have any questions for a former higher pin Amway IBO who left with TEAM, and then left TEAM and Monavie, drop a comment. I'm sure he won't mind.

I'll create posts answering any questions you have about Amway and TEAM from his perspective.

I think that would be nice, don't you?
