I saw that a new feature on the Amway website is that- income summary is now available online. I don't know how the diamonds and above allowed this to happen as the income summaries also include "Purchases". Earlier we used to get W2. It would not have the information about the purchases made in that year.
Most of the IBOs who during the year don't pay any attention to income and expenses are sure in for a shock when they get to look at these income summaries.
According to the online income summary my earning for the 2009 was around $3600 and Purchases around $9000. I stopped being active in the last quarter of 2009, otherwise my purchases would have been easily more by another 3K. Doing 300Pv every month is such a small price for your freedom. Yeah right.
Earning for 2008 around $3800 and purchases ONLY AROUND $11k.
This was only the the expenses involved with purchases from Amway. They dont include the system expenses or the expenses involved with actually building the business.
I noticed that nothing much in income had changed between 2008 and 09 and when I decided to leave the business my upline was trying to convince that I was so close to platinumship and would be able to make $2k month after after (yeah right- in my dreams)
We would have thrown up if we had received the income summary with "Purchases", the year we went silver and were a "Strong part of Upline's platinumship."
