Jamie & Martha Heredia – Emerald
Jaime and Martha Heredia are realizing their goals and dreams as AMWAY™ business owners.
“I wanted to follow my agenda and not have to work my entire life for somebody else,” he says.
Check. Both have left their former jobs (his at an orchid nursery, hers as a housekeeper) to build their AMWAY business full time, which allows them more flexibility to schedule their days and to spend more time with Martha’s son, Jessi (15).
“I wanted to accomplish my childhood goals and dreams: own a home, enjoy a nice lifestyle, and travel,” she says.
Check. While their new house isn’t their dream home, “We’re living more comfortably than we did in our apartment,” she shares. They love the travel involved in the business and envision future trips to Spain, Italy, and Egypt. “Of course, that’s just to start!” Martha says, laughing.
First, there’s a lot more work to be done: mentoring their downlines and helping them reach their long-term goals, teaching them how to demonstrate and sell the products (“Customers are more likely to buy when they see how a product works,” Jaime says.), and showing them how to tap into future sales.
“Most people are impressed by the various products Amway offers,” he says. The Heredias believe that the AMWAY business opportunity is a practical business opportunity for everybody.
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.
