Luis and Rossy Diaz
Family rewards: Priceless – Rossy Diaz was working 16 hours a day and Luis was a full-time engineer when they were first introduced to the AMWAY™ business opportunity. Describing an initial meeting they had with their sponsors, Rossy says, “I remember our answer to all their questions was the same: No. ‘Do you live in the house of your dreams?’ No. ‘Do you go on vacation with your kids?’ No. … Everything was no, no, no.”
At first, Luis didn’t think he was cut out for such a people-oriented business. “I was shy and wasn’t comfortable talking with others,” he says. “So I thought maybe Rossy could develop the business on her own.”
After going through the training sessions, he changed his mind. “Watching the videos about others who had succeeded and learning more about the Corporation really motivated me,” says Luis. “I decided I could do it.”
Indeed. They qualified at the Silver level within six months.
The couple says the business brings out something in people they may have lost. “When you’re a kid, you think, ‘I want to be an astronaut’ or whatever; you have a lot of hope for the future,” says Luis. “Then when you hit 18 or 20, you face reality, and that’s when you stop dreaming. Well, this business got us dreaming again. And that gave us the energy to keep going.”
“When you put in the work, you get the results. But when you stop, you’re like stagnant water – standing still and accomplishing nothing.” – Luis Diaz
Rossy says she doesn’t have any trouble putting in the hard work because she loves what she does. “We live this business,” she says, adding that they also love the fact they are contributing to the Dominican Republic economy.
Both have been impressed from day one with how the company supports IBOs, especially those just getting into the business, with early incentives and comprehensive training. “And when they say you’re going to Hawaii, you go to Hawaii!” says Rossy.
Their children grew up with the business and, in fact, have all signed up as IBOs on their own. “We have a very stable family, and I believe that comes from the quality time we have all spent together,” says Luis.
The two say they could never have achieved the lifestyle they have today had they remained in their previous jobs. “The income is wonderful, yes, but rewards for your family are priceless,” says Rossy.
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.
