Building with a Young Team – Craig Clickner & Carrie Bohlig
Wisconsin, When Craig Clickner recently lost his job in corporate banking, “It wasn’t in the plans,” he says, “but it could’ve been worse.”
At least he and his wife, Carrie, who teaches part time, had supplemented their income with an AWMAY business. In fact, that’s how they met: she was sponsored by his sister and brother-in-law.
Now, Craig and Carrie’s goals are to reach Diamond and expand their business internationally.
“Travel is a big passion of ours,” he shares. “We’re planning a trip to England this winter, and we have quite a few things happening in Singapore, so we’ll probably head there next.”
“We are definitely looking forward to having more choices and control over how we spend our time,” Carrie adds. “We’re very close with our sponsor and want to duplicate what they’ve done, including helping a lot of people in the process.”
“We have an extremely young team,” Craig says, “including a huge student population. In fact, quite a few students in our group are already Platinum! They totally understand and utilize the Internet and social networking to build their businesses.
While their college days may be behind them, Carrie says she and Craig enjoy the team aspect of building an AMWAY® business. “We both played sports growing up, so we love the camaraderie.”
They also appreciate the many products Amway offers that support their love of health and fitness. “The NUTRILITE® Twist Tubes are super smart: economical, healthy, convenient, and easy to store,” he says.
The average monthly gross income earned by “active” IBOs was $115 (U.S.)/$181 (CAN.).
The success depicted may reflect income and investments outside the IBO Compensation Plan. Approximately 66% of all IBOs of record were found to be active.* The percentage of IBOs who achieved Founders Executive Diamond and above qualification in FY08 was .00565%.
*Based on an independent survey during 2001, “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.
