It sounds to me that Amway/Quixtar are

just trying to make some things legal to save their ass. OK, they’re going to have tapes and functions monitored. They are openingly posting income disclaimers. B That doesn’t change the fact that behind the scenes they operate like a PYRAMID and a CULT! IBOs will still be trained to DUPLICATE, read only books on THEIR list, to NOT LISTEN to anything NEGATIVE, to stay PLUGGED IN, to be COUNSELED in everything…relationships, what to spend money on, religion, EVERYTHING!!! And with all that said, how can they claim that they are presenting an opportunity to be an INDEPENDANT BUSINESS OWNER???
The only real way that Amway/Quixtar can come clean and be honest is to SHUT DOWN the whole operation and give people back their lives!!!

I think Quixtar is betting the additional money

that can be earned by an Accredited IBO will encourage them to go to those groups who ARE Accredited.

So far, the exodus of the TEAM and several other AMO groups from Amway has NOT affected their sales all that much – I think the leadership at Amway/Quixtar is prepared to do what it takes to keep their company legal in all of its markets. In other words, it’s time to stop letting the AMOs muck up the company name. While Rich and Jay had all their “eggs in one basket” – namely Amway – the “kids” have hugely diverse incomes from a gazillion other businesses. If upholding their rules meant that Amway went under – the “kids” would survive quite nicely without it. I think they realized it would take something drastic to repair the damage that has been done to their parents’ business??
