William Ng and Carey Chen
“Amway is about giving people hope,” William Ng believes.
He ought to know: Life is now smooth sailing since reaching Emerald in 2011.
William, a business banker, was exploring different direct marketing businesses on the side when a coworker introduced him to the AMWAY™ business opportunity.
“Those other businesses couldn’t compare to the Amway business plan, depth of products, and corporate and upline support,” he says. “So I jumped in.”
What started as a leap of faith has turned into a luxury liner-sized lifeboat.
“Before, I was afraid of getting married and having children because I was broke,” says William. Now, thanks to his and Carey’s AMWAY business, “I feel like I have more control over my future. No one can fire me. And I have more motivation than ever to continue succeeding,” due to their growth downline and son Carsten, 18 months.
“Money is not people’s major need,” William believes. “What they need is more time to enjoy life. That’s what I offer them when I share the AMWAY opportunity.”
Today when people say no, William doesn’t take the rejection to heart like he did in the beginning. “I build this business from the heart, because I want others to have what I have. If I help them succeed, then I succeed as well.”
Adds Carey, who works for a non-profit that helps low-income families find insurance, “We want to help many more people and charities in the future.”
The couple, who met in college, enjoys shopping, dining out, and spending time with friends and family. “No matter what we do, if we do it together, then we’re happy,” he says.
With the possibility of leaving his job looming on the horizon, William feels he can breathe a sigh of relief.
“There is value in doing this business,” he says. “The goal is not to worry about life anymore!”
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.
The approximate percentage of Direct Fulfillment IBOs in North America who achieved Emerald status in FY10 was 0.0281%.
