Joycelyn & Kennedy Rawlins – Emerald
U.S. Virgin Islands
Kennedy and Joyce Rawlins are “bottom line” people. She has a degree in business administration and he’s an accountant.
When they saw the AMWAY™ business opportunity, Joycelyn, who’d always wanted her own business, was thrilled. Kennedy, about to take his CPA exam, said, “It’s all yours, but I’ll support you.”
True to his word, Kennedy eventually attended an event with Joycelyn, where he talked with other accountants. It changed his thinking.
“Of course, they became IBOs to make money,” Kennedy explains. “But, Amway’s ‘bottom line’ seemed to reflect a much higher value. That’s what we wanted to work toward.”
And that’s exactly what the couple is achieving.
Kennedy, once on the Virgin Island’s national cricket team, loves representing the XS® Energy Drinks. And though Joyce has become a “walking billboard” for ARTISTRY® beauty products, she’s comfortable selling almost everything.
“The Company provides unlimited opportunities to build new skills and develop greater self-confidence,” says Kennedy. “It broadens our horizons and helps us see what’s possible.”
Today, possibilities include building a powerful legacy for son D’sjhon and twins Deijah and Denae.
“Instead of seeing us focused on accruing money to get the life we want, our children will grow up in a business where focusing on relationships and personal growth actually generates success,” says Joycelyn. “That difference is priceless.”
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.
