Dean and Marcie Whalen


“We believe in three levels of freedom: debt free, job free, and chore free,” states Dean Whalen, who left his job in sales nearly three years ago.

When he and Marcie learned about the AMWAY® business opportunity, Dean was “living off credit cards” while finishing college and planning to play basketball overseas. Marcie was earning a modest income teaching part time.

Then out of the blue, a friend from Marcie’s hometown contacted them. “We were intrigued by this young, happy couple who were so successful,” she acknowledges.

Marcie envisioned being able “to be a full-time wife and mom” and “got really excited.” Dean admits, “If someone had told me at the age of 5 that I didn’t have to work for someone else, I wouldn’t have been so gung ho about making a career out of basketball.”

Under the guidance of their upline, the couple focused on personal development and Dean getting a 9-to-5 job before kicking their business into full gear. “I knew it would take a few years to establish our business, and I was OK with that,” he says. “The alternative was a 40-year career with little to show in the end.”

Along the way, they’ve gotten married, paid off their debt, replaced Marcie’s income, and then replaced Dean’s. Today, they have a new boss, and her name is Isabelle Violet (born Dec. 2).

“The great thing is we can switch off feeding her,” says Marcie, who’s relying on the added energy from NUTRILITE® DOUBLE X® more than ever.

“Our goals are starting to manifest now. It’s pretty cool!” Dean says. “We just hired a personal assistant to free up even more time.”

Adds Marcie, “We’re looking forward to sharing our blessings with other people,” including those on their team, their parents, and more children. “We can’t wait to travel the world with them!”

The average monthly Gross Income for “active” IBOs was $202.

Approximately 46% of all IBOs were active.

U.S. IBOs were considered “active” in months in 2010 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. “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. There may be significant business expenses, mostly discretionary, that may be greater in relation to income in the first years of operation.

The approximate percentage of Direct Fulfillment IBOs in North America who achieved Emerald status in FY10 was 0.0281%.
