Xiang Lan Gao & De Lin Li – Emerald
Ask Xiang Lan Gao her favorite thing about being an IBO and the former nail technician will say: “The freedom to plan my own schedule. I feel that I have a path to travel and hope for the future.”
Xiang Lan was introduced to the AMWAYTM business opportunity by a coworker at the salon. “I was feeling poorly and she suggested I try NUTRILITE® The Perfect Pack for your health Dietary Supplements,” she explains. After just a few weeks, “I felt so much better!”
Shortly thereafter she was presented with the idea of starting her own AMWAY business. “One idea stuck with me: I could be compensated based on my efforts of selling product and sponsoring others who do the same.”
Knowing the positive impact NUTRILITE products made on her own life, Xiang Lan decided to focus primarily on the health line. “Almost everyone can use guidance getting the suggested amounts of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients,” she says, “so I help them figure out where to start and begin building a relationship that way.”
Her husband De Lin Li “helps me a lot” but is often away on business as a travel guide. Their son, Ning Li, is a university student.
“I have had so much help from our upline mentors,” says Xiang Lan. “For that I am forever grateful.”
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.
