Pavel & Liliam Gómez – Emerald
“The ARTISTRY® essentials Skin Care products are my favorite, but I appreciate everything ARTISTRY offers,” says Liliam Gómez. That includes marketing tips like the Purse-to-Purse technique taught in the ARTISTRY Skin Care Sales Kit. “It’s easy to share something you use all the time and love!”
She and Pavel feel the same way about their AMWAY™ business. “It’d be selfish of us not to share this business opportunity that helps people live better lives,” he says.
Pavel and Liliam (originally from Cuba) were struggling to stretch their time and money to realize the American Dream. “It was all about surviving,” says Pavel, who drove a delivery truck. Liliam worked two part-time jobs by day and studied to become a pharmacy technician by night.
When a friend introduced them to the AMWAY business opportunity, they saw the opportunity they’d been waiting for. “We make a great team,” Pavel says fondly of his wife.
These days, they enjoy mixing pleasurable pursuits – like working out together at the gym – with their business agenda. “The gym is a great place to promote NUTRILITE® Sports Nutrition products and XS® Energy Drinks,” he adds.
“Having the 180-day Satisfaction Guarantee helps our customers to be comfortable when they are new products,” Liliam says. “We give product samples to people to try with no pressure to buy. But they almost always do, they like them so much.”
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.
