A DELICATE BALANCE
One little recognized ingredient in Amway's success is the way it has managed its relationship with its distributors. This is saying a good deal, too-effectively managing this relationship is perhaps the single greatest challenge any network marketing company faces. Leave them entirely on their own to do their own thing, and soon you'll have thousands of people saying who knows what, making who knows what kind of product claims and income promises, running afoul of every imaginable state and federal regulation in their missionary zeal. Untrammeled abuses can rain down a maelstrom of regulatory action-even shut a company down. ( it has happend far too many times in this business) What's more, nothing kills the momentum of an independant business like the chaos of an anything goes, flavor of the week, hundreds of channels to choose from palette of business "systems" and "success strategies". Solution? Regulate the field. But how much? Just a little too much, and they feel squashed, stomped on, and resentful. ( Hey this is starting to feel like the corporate rat race I'm trying to escape) Amway maintains a healthy "church and state" sort of seperation from the IBOAI. At the same time, the company has had to rein in the IBO force at times. A quick visit to Amways web site today reveals "Q&A" style efforts to manage some of the most common public perceptions of IBO abuses such as religiously oriented, strong arming, high profit tools loading, and the infamous "curiousity approach" ( where I invite you over for coffee and cheesecake, whip out a white board, draw circles and deny that its Amway) These are the behaviors that have given Amway its sometimes uneven reputation, and Amway corporate and top field leaders strive mightily to prevent them and keep the overzealous troops in check..without inordinately crimping their style. Its a delicate balance, and Amway has it managed masterfully. End of that part!
Okay, not sure if they did or not, but maybe Amway did have it delicately balanced, However some thangs have changed since Quixtar cause shit aint like they say here that they dont do or try to prevent from being done. Yeah okay well I was taught to do JUST EXACTLY those things, and nobody did or said crap upline to prevent it or discourage it. I learned this crap somewhere, UPLINE, so why are they back tracking? If they wanted to prevent it or stop it, why are they turning the other cheek now? Was this article crap? I think so.
