Krystyna & Jaroslaw Maksymowicz – Emerald
When Polish immigrants Jaroslaw and Krystyna Maksymowicz were introduced to the AMWAY ™ business opportunity, “We understood it’s a tremendous opportunity” for positively impacting lives, he says.
How many and how far-ranging they couldn’t have foreseen. But it’s safe to say that their enthusiasm for the business is well known here and throughout Europe.
In Poland, Krystyna worked as a proofreader at a local newspaper and Jaroslaw worked as a forest ranger. Becoming an Amway business owner proved a natural fit for Jaroslaw, who is a born leader according to his wife. “He always wanted to be his own boss,” she says, laughing.
Through “determination and obstinacy” as well as “the tremendous support of our business mentors,” the couple built an international business comprised of “ambitious and industrious people” they consider friends.
Not only do they and their daughters (Gabriela, 24, and Natalia, 18) enjoy the travel that comes with building the business, but also the freedom to manage their schedules as they see fit. They regroup and reenergize at their “piece of heaven on earth,” a house in the country.
Building an AMWAY business “has proven to be one of the best decision we’ve ever made,” believes Krystyna.
Adds her husband, “Our greatest joy isn’t our success; it’s the opportunity to support other families on their way to a better lifestyle.”
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.
