Leonardo & Rosa Vasquez – Emerald
Leonardo and Rosa Vasquez want to live the life they design, not settle for a life they’re handed. The ability to help others, earn a living, and have more family time top the list of what they appreciate most about owning an AMWAY™ business.
For now, Leonardo plans to continue driving a cab part-time. After parking his taxi for the night, Leonardo is committed to supporting Rosa in building their AMWAY business. Rosa says, “He’s a great help! He’ll step in to do anything for me, our two sons, Leonard and Edward, and our business.”
Staying in touch with their group is essential to success, so Leonardo and Rosa hold regular meetings. He says, “Rosa loves everybody and drops everything to help an IBO or customer with a question. She’s a leader.”
Their goal of building a balanced business is starting to pay off financially, and Leonardo and Rosa are not letting anything slow them down. They host weekly open houses, inviting people to try NUTRILITE® and ARTISTRY® products, or other Amway products.
Rosa loves being able to work and travel with her husband: “Traveling together to meetings, seminars, and sales calls keeps us learning, and brings us closer.”
Leonardo reveals what’s in his heart, “Rosa’s the best thing in my life – she runs the business, our life, and the house.”
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.
