Francisco Torres – Emerald
Francisco Torres’ dream began in 2005 at his home in Garland, Texas. “I had my own yard work business, and I worked hard. But I wanted so much more.” When a friend’s cousin introduced him to the AMWAY™ business opportunity, he jumped.
“I didn’t understand it all at first, but I quickly learned as much as I could and set my goals. My parents were so supportive. I worked for my dream of not being tied to a job, and to be able to spend time with my parents; they had done so much for me. I quickly started building my business and kept dreaming. My team was always helping and encouraging me. Their support and my parents’ constant confidence in me were very important in my journey to Emerald.”
Francisco doesn’t want much for himself. “Every day, I am thankful for this opportunity. Everyone wants a house and a nice car that is paid for. I hope I’ll see that soon. My dream now is that my dad wants to travel to the Vatican. So we must do that. My mom is not as excited to go, but they are inseparable, so she will go. My dad is well educated and has so much to offer, and he always said I could do anything I set out to do. I base my life on them and their example. Now, it will be my turn to do all I can for them. My AMWAY business offers this freedom for me.”
In closing, Francisco asks if he can thank the Company that supports his business. “We know that Amway will always give us the best. I owe thanks to the Company and to everyone who makes it possible. It is way beyond the money for me. I love the life this business has afforded me. I will work toward Double Diamond. My faith, my customers, my hard work, plus a great Company, will get me there.”
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.
