Amway NPC Spring 2016: New Platinums Are Here – and They’re Excited
It’s the first day of Spring 2016’s New Platinum Conference, and the New Platinums are clearly excited to be at Amway World Headquarters in Michigan.
They’re here to get information on how to build strong businesses and talk to experts about new product details and tips. They’re also eager to see the support they receive from Amway’s manufacturing, research, and headquarters staff, and get recognized and celebrated for their accomplishment of growing their businesses to Platinum.
Every new Platinum agrees that being at NPC is well worth the hard work and determination to get here. “Cuando estamos aqui no recordamos a quienes nos dijeron que no era posible,” said Irma Herrera from Georgia (“Now that we’re here, we don’t remember who said it wasn’t possible.”).
For some New Platinums, attending NPC is a continuing journey of firsts and achievements they’ve experienced since becoming Amway IBOs. “Because of Amway, this is the first time we’ve been on airplane,” said Jose Marquez from Virginia. “But this is the beginning of even greater things.”
While all new Platinums are excited to attend the Amway Headquarters tour later this week, they’re also looking forward to the new information they’ll get from Amway experts on developing and managing their businesses. “I want to learn how to be a successful leader, and go back to my team and give them a huge boost of confidence,” said Leo Alarcon from Utah.
The first day of NPC included an Amway product experience where the IBOs talked to product specialists and learned new techniques and product benefits to help them build successful businesses.
Following the product expo, the new Platinums were treated to a welcome celebration complete with dinner and live entertainment. For New Platinums, this conference is support for their success, and provides expertise and unique credibility tools they’ll share with downline IBOs to grow their businesses to even higher levels. “When we started as IBOs we were told about this opportunity and that we could get here. Now we’re here and excited we found this road to success,” said Griselda Villatoro from Virginia.
NPC Spring 2016 – Day 1
The average monthly Gross Income for “active” IBOs was USD $183 (in the U.S.)/CAD $206 (in Canada).
Approximately 53% of IBOs in the U.S., and 49% of IBOs in Canada, were “active.”
IBOs were considered “active” in months in 2013 when they attempted to make a retail sale, or presented the Amway IBO Compensation Plan, or received bonus money, or attended an Amway or IBO meeting. If someone sustained that level of activity every month for a whole year, their annualized Gross Income would be $2,196 (U.S.)/$2,472 (Canada). Of course, not every IBO chooses to be active every month. “Gross Income” means the amount received from retail sales, minus the cost of goods sold, plus monthly bonuses and cash incentives. It excludes all annual bonuses and cash incentives, and all non-cash awards, which may be significant. There may also be significant business expenses, mostly discretionary, that may be greater in relation to income in the first years of operation. For the purposes of the calculation in Canada, individuals who were IBOs for less than the entire year in 2013 were excluded.
Before registering as an Independent Business Owner (IBO) powered by Amway, you should read and understand the AMWAY™ Business Overview Brochure, which contains important information for those interested in becoming IBOs.
