Bibiana & Pedro Terhon – Emerald
“I saw the greatness of this business from the very beginning,” states Bibiana Terhon. “I knew building an AMWAY™ business wasn’t going to be about just my success, but the success of many others as well.”
Bibiana and Pedro were making decent money in their factory jobs when they were presented with the AMWAY business opportunity. “Initially, he feared we’d be spending less time with our girls (Evette, 11, and Leslie, 7), so he didn’t want to pursue it,” Bibiana says.
She decided to seize the opportunity, because as she explains, “I was desperately tired of working for someone else.”
About a year after Bibiana got started, Pedro’s factory closed. He had to start over from scratch, taking an entry-level job at another factory.
“That’s when he saw that this business was our future,” she says.
Now that they’ve both left their jobs, they enjoy being able to take the girls to school and volunteer in their classrooms. “They are my life,” Pedro says.
While it’s nice not having to punch a time clock anymore, Bibiana says the thing she enjoys most is “teaching new IBOs the principles and values we’ve learned, because they enhance every aspect of your life.”
The couple is eager to share the AMWAY business opportunity with others around the world, especially in their native Mexico.
The average monthly gross income earned by “active” IBOs was $115 (U.S.)/$181 (CAN.).
The percentage of IBOs who achieved Double Diamond and above qualification in FY08 was .0038%.
Based on an independent survey during 2001, approximately 66% of all IBOs of record were found to be active. “Active” means an IBO attempted to make a retail sale, or presented the Amway Independent Business Owner Compensation Plan, or received bonus money, or attended a company or IBO meeting in the year 2000.
“Gross Income” means the amount received from retail sales, minus the cost of goods sold, plus the amount of Performance Bonus retained. There may be significant business expenses, mostly discretionary, that may be greater in relation to income in the first years of operation. The success depicted may reflect income and investments outside the IBO Plan.
