Reaching Emerald is a significant achievement, the result of sustained effort and successful leadership. As Emeralds, IBOs have demonstrated their ability to sell, recruit, train, motivate, and teach others to do the same. They have built healthy organizations and are reaping the rewards of their hard work.

Lionel and Claudette remember receiving the first check from their Amway™ independent business. Holding it, Claudette said she realized the business really works, just as it was explained to her the day they signed up. From then on, she knew it was their responsibility to grow that check every month. With determination and hard work, they did, making new friendships and dreams come true along the way.

“The true measure of success is how many people are better off because of us,” says Sreeranga. “Thanks to our income from our Amway™ independent business, we’re able to find deserving students in India who are unable to pay college tuition and support them until they complete their education.”

In addition to the financial rewards from their business, Colby and Meg Jacobs are grateful the business enables them to help others. Meg says, “The biggest blessing is the ability to ‘breathe life’ into people, to believe in them, and show them how capable they are of becoming leaders in every area of their life.” Colby adds, “What never gets old is seeing people’s eyes light up when they realize they can actually win with this business. Period.”

When Sanglim was first introduced to the Amway™ business at an event, she met an IBO leader who donated the monthly bonus she earned through the business to a charity. The leader mentioned she could do this because she was confident she would receive a bonus again next month. Sharing this leader’s strong desire to help others in life, Sanglim thought, “This is the business I want to do.”
