Kantha and TL Balasubramaniam

“Nobody would guess our ages because of our positive attitude and the excellent AMWAY® products we use,” Kantha Balasubramaniam wagers.

She’s not about to keep it a secret, however.

“I’m 73 and TL is 81. We feel our AMWAY® business has given us a bright future and an opportunity to stay young. Without it, life would be so boring!”

Boring wasn’t on the agenda as these former accountants neared retirement. “We knew we would need an additional source of income to live a comfortable lifestyle,” she says. “So when a friend shared the AMWAY opportunity with us, we took it.”

At first their two grown children worried about all their “running around.” Eventually, “Our family understood that we enjoy doing what we’re doing. Now our grandkids say, ‘We want to be just like you!’ That gives us the greatest pleasure!”

Likewise, they derive immense joy from their “family” in India. “Our downlines are so kind to us,” TL says. “They’re all our children.”

Now that their grandchildren are all nearly grown, the couple divides their time between the U.S. and India. TL and Kantha feel it’s their duty to help their former countrymen.

“Our expectation of their success [in this business] is the greatest gift we can give them,” he says. Adds Kantha, “We feel if we can find success through an AMWAY business, then they can, too. That’s the hope we want to give people. By helping them we’re also taking care of our family’s future,” she states.

Creating trust funds for their five grandchildren and favorite charities is high on this energetic couple’s priority list these days.

“We’ve seen many dreams come true through our AMWAY business,” TL remarks, “from becoming business owners, to having family join us in the business, to living in a beachfront home. But helping others succeed is the best reward!”

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%.
