Marleny & Mario Sosa – Emerald
Mario and Marleny Sosa love the increased awareness the national advertising campaign is bringing to their AMWAY™ business. “Now we’re visible to people,” she says. “More and more we hear, ‘I just saw your products!’”
As the old saying goes, seeing is believing.
As well as, touching, feeling, and tasting help move products, the Sosas would add.
Long-time advocates of sampling, the couple makes sure to bring NUTRILITE® Meal Replacement Bars, ARTISTRY® Skin Care and Cosmetics, SATINIQUE® Hair Care, and XS® Energy Drinks with them wherever they go.
“Once people try the products, they don’t want to use anything else,” remarks Mario, a former mechanic. “Our customers also love that we save them a trip to the store!”
Although it was the prospect of unlimited income that initially drew the Sosas to the business, they’ve discovered non-monetary rewards they treasure even more.
“We’ve grown in ways that matter and become closer as family,” shares Maria. Their three children – Mario Albert, Jonathan Arnald, and Sylvia, and Mario’s adult daughter, Helen Karina, are all active in the business.
“We’ve learned so much from our leaders,” Mario says, “we’ll be forever grateful to them.”
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.
