Mark & Meredith Nathan
Time + Effort = Success - Illinois, Mark Nathan has always seen his AMWAY™ business as a vehicle for reaching his goals.
As a college graduate, Mark had a lot of things he wanted to do – acting, directing independent films, and teaching. But he took work as an executive recruiter to pay the bills.
“What appealed to me about the AMWAY business is that as long as I was willing to put in the time and effort, I could get the same result as other successful people in this business,” believed Mark.
Meredith was attracted to the business because the people she met “were so supportive. Mark, who I hadn’t seen since college, had matured tremendously. I thought, ‘If this is a part of the business, then I want to find out more.’”
Eventually, they started dating and got married. “We’ve built a solid financial foundation throughout our 20s that has provided us with more choices,” Mark says. “What we’re really excited about is seeing our friends achieve life-changing goals through this business.”
Those friendships “are better than anything I could’ve imagined,” adds Meredith, who’s a big fan of ARTISTRY® Creme LuXury and NUTRILITE® Personalized Health packets. “I don’t cook so my husband gets no nutrition otherwise,” she jokes.
The Nathans can’t say enough about the marketing support they’ve received from the Corporation either. With the boost in advertising and sponsorships, plus the increased awareness of the Company’s history of charitable outreach, “It’s made a gigantic difference on our end,” says Mark, who’s proud to be associated with such a positive Company.
The average monthly gross income earned by “active” IBOs was $115 (U.S.)/$181 (CAN.).
The success depicted may reflect income and investments outside the IBO Compensation Plan. Approximately 66% of all IBOs of record were found to be active.* The percentage of IBOs who achieved Founders Executive Diamond and above qualification in FY08 was .00565%.
*Based on an independent survey during 2001, “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.
