Norman Wong & Salena Chen – Emerald
What do these economics majors/financial advisors/Independent Business Owners have to say about owning an AMWAY™ business? Plenty!
Norman Wong and Salena Chen are unable to contain their enthusiasm. They believe it’s an exciting business, simple enough that any motivated, hard-working person can do it and achieve their goals.
Also, the potential for financial gain is unlimited. Norman explains their experience, “We’re good examples that it takes patience, dedication, hard work, selling to customers and using the products to build a successful business.” For years, the couple simply ordered and used the products. It was after they both decided to get serious about building their business that they achieved Emerald.
Salena describes this business as being sustainable and less affected by a fluctuating economy. Retailing consumable products – NUTRILITE® products, ARTISTRY® skin care and cosmetics, and SA8® cleaning products–helps strengthen their business, while building PV and opening doors. “We help ourselves by building a balanced business of using the products, making retail sales, and presenting the AMWAY business opportunity.”
To accomplish their goals, the couple prefers causal home parties and frequent social gatherings, iCook® cookware demonstrations, and No-Tox parties.
Sharing a dream of positively contributing to society, Norman and Salena are living out their dream as they mentor IBOs. She says, “We’re maturing together while we improve our business, and our personal relationships.”
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.
