Evelia & Jose Luis Clemente – Emerald
When Jose and Evelia Clemente immigrated to the United States, both were hopeful about the future. But Jose was a “glass half-empty” kind of guy and Evelia was the eternal optimist. So when one of Evelia’s employers showed her the AMWAY™ business opportunity, she was immediately excited, but Jose said it was “too good to be true.”
Evelia’s response was, “But what if it is true?” She had to find out, and began building the business herself with such enthusiasm and confidence that Jose finally agreed to attend an event with her.
“That trip changed our lives,” admits Jose. Today, the couple loves working as a team. Evelia’s knowledge of cosmetology makes ARTISTRY® beauty products a natural fit. And Jose, an avid sportsman, promotes the NUTRILITE® Sports Nutrition products. But they don’t limit themselves to only those products.
“Our business support system makes selling easy,” says Jose. “Training and educational opportunities, exceptional sample kits, and ad campaigns keep sales improving; and constant support and encouragement from our sponsors keep us motivated.”
The best part of the business for the couple, however, is having the flexibility to spend time with their children, Jose Luis, Jr. (also an IBO) and Karen.
“It’s really about so much more than the money,” says Evelia. “It’s about opening the possibilities for us as a family.”
Jose optimistically agrees.
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.
