Aww, isn't that nice......

Looks like Amway and Amway Corp., MonaVie, TEAM, Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady, Tim Marks, and other parties have reached an agreement.

Of course, it's confidential as is pretty much everything Amway does with their disputes.

I'm sure the secrecy clause was done by Amway and it was agreed to because everyone likely can't afford to spend what Amway could on this. Something tells me his overpriced purple juice isn't blasting out the doors as much as he'd like. Meanwhile, Amway has their overseas business they can depend on.

I think it's nice that they've reached an agreement and the nonsense has stopped, but the asshole part of me says Amway does their level best to keep everything secret because they have much to hide.

If they "won" this dispute would you think they would trumpet it far and wide that they OWN any downline you recruit and if you leave, the downline stays?

Again, just too many unanswered questions about this outfit called Amway. If you are truly an INDEPENDENT business owner, it should make you wonder. How can such a huge decision remain secret from the other IBO's? This is stuff that could really come into play for almost anyone!

If you are an Amway IBO, then you SHOULD be wondering WTF?

How will that effect you if you decide that the products are overpriced and the Corporation is gouging you and you decide to look at other companies with your people?

I guess what it means is you either keep on keepin' on, or else you decide this is a bad business to be involved with and quit.

Quick Questions about FED

How many people are going to be free because of the information they learned this weekend at Free Enterprise Day?

What did they learn that will make them move enough products to be free?

How much did it cost them?

How long will it take to re-coup that expense?

What did they learn about operating a business that they didn't know before?

IBO's, you're welcome to chime in here if you like. THese are all very valid questions that any legitimate business owner would ask themselves.

Coming Soon!

More commentary by the Rocket.

In the meantime, enjoy Anna Banana's blog. Obviously WWDB is a whole lot more of the same. My experience is dismissed as outdated. No it's not. My experience is pretty much the same as Anna's husband. Don't call it outdated because it's not.

or listen to an Interview with Eric Scheibler from about a year ago. Whether you are an IBO, Ex IBO or a curious observer, give it a listen. The dude knows what he's talking about, and makes very compelling statements which are very revealing about the reality of the Amway business and his experiences.

I'll leave you with this. The more things change the more they stay the same. There is ample evidence out there which suggests Amway and the AMO's are still operating much as they always have.

If you are truly a business person, you will take in ALL information, both good and bad. If you're an Amway only type business owner, then don't pay attention to dissenting opinions. I think it's a mistake, but hey! You're free to do what you like.

See you soon.
