A quick update from an active W.W.D.B. – Amway business Owner. Active being the important word in regards to internet people posting on the subject of W.W.D.B. and Amway vs any who may have “used” to deal with the companies years ago.
A few posts back I had mentioned that there was another W.W.D.B. / Amway Diamond couple in Diamond qualification. After maintaining the required parameters for a minimum of 6 months straight, Ty and Vanessa Crandell are the newest confirmed Diamonds from the World Wide Dream Builder training and mentorship system.
This past weekend they began their F.E.D. (Free Enterprise Days) swing across North America. Starting in Irvine, CA this past weekend they will continue their journey to Portland, OR – Denver, CO and Edmonton, AB Canada later in October. Being new Diamonds in the W.W.D.B. system they will probably be asked to speak in other markets around the world on how they were able to build their organization.
Many people or internet posters will say that this is an individual victory. “Barely anyone goes Diamond and they had to scam people to get there!“
Well, what does a Diamondship represent?
Ron Puryear said it in one of his many talks: “3 you’re free – 6 you’re rich!” 3 referring to 3 Platinums. If you help 3 people create a business that reaches the platinum / founders platinum level – you’ll be an Emerald. Within the W.W.D.B. system – if you go Emerald with the parameters that is taught, thats a hefty amount of income. There are many ways to reach Emerald, but only with the correct parameters can some of the higher figures really be earned. Thats why WWG teaches to paramters – not just a PV level. The PV comes with the correct parameters automatically.
There are many in Amway who go Emerald. To “Amway ” only people, Emerald is simply a Pin level. Nothing more. There are many ways to go Emerald. You can have a business that has 4 legs. 3 of those 4 legs can go Platinum and technically, you could be an Emerald if you had the PV that meets the Pin level. W.W.D.B teaches to have a minimum foundation of having 12 legs of personal width for your Platinumship, let alone Emeraldship. Sure – you could go Platinum with fewer legs. Heck – that only takes 7,500 PV. You can do that on one leg! Matt Tsuruda from Hawaii did that. He had one leg at 7,500 PV. So, technically – he was a Platinum – with one leg only who earned that 7,500 PV for him. But it was his one downline who created that volume – so who do you think earned the money/bonus? Not him! So Matt had to work to get width and earn his own platinumship and ultimately a Diamondship many years ago. He ended up being the youngest Diamond in W.W.D.B. years ago until our good friend’s and upline went Diamond.
Pin levels don’t gaurantee a certain income. It’s the parameter’s that earn the income. That’s why the highest Founders Diamond’s income in Amway was documented at $2,500,000 in the past year(shown on a W.W.D.B. business overview – cleared by legal teams at Amway – it cannot be reported publicly unless it was done). While the highest Founders Diamond is documented to be at $2,500,00 (as per business overviews approved by legal teams) – a standard board plan from a W.W.D.B. business owner will show the correct parameters on how to reach that as opposed to just teaching PV and sales and hype up / sign up.
The difference between W.W.D.B. and Amway is that W.W.D.B. leaders teach other business owners the importance of parameters. A one legged Platinum at 7,500 PV vs a 12 legged Platinum at 7,500 PV and on to 10,500 PV and 12,000 PV.
More legs = better differential overall = more profit = helping more people create volume (AKA bonus cheques) to get that better differential.
Ty and Vanessa Crandell have done just that. Created an organization that has created a minimum of 6 platinumships. That’s helping at least a minimum of 6 couples or singles to create a significant business that earns them a solid side income and a yearly trip from Amway. That organization has multiple singles and couples who have reached the 2,500, and 4,000 Pin level over hundreds of people.
Ultimately – hundreds of people had to profit and benefit or else Ty and Vanessa Crandell would not have earned and created a Diamondhip. Because that’s what a Diamondship is. An organization of people who are creating and producing to earn an income. Ty and Vanessa just happen to be just one of many examples of people who have helped many others succeed and earn an income in the Amway business. Because of that, they earn a great reward and will be a greater example to those who also wish to become more than just their job title.
The success and knowledge of the W.W.D.B. teachings on how to build the Amway business are growing and increasing. Ty and Vanessa are just another beginning as was, our upline were last year. There was yet another retirement party for Vlado Milic as a 31 year old husband a few months ago here in the Vancouver market. As a Sapphire, he is now free to live life full time with his wife – they also entered into Emerald qualification this past month. Ian and Crystal Walker just hit Silver and have entered their Platinum qualification. Conner Yuen, son of W.W.D.B. Executive Diamonds Dan and Sandy Yuen became a Platinum many months ago. Our upline coach’s mentors – the orchestrators of the W.W.D.B. Alberta market, mentors to Founders Emeralds Mike and Brandi Wagner and our upline who are founder’s diamonds and everyone down from those couples entered their Emerald qualification as well! Chris and Lauren Tripi in Florida are extending the W.W.D.B. banner as founders Platinum’s and they may have passed that already. Ben and Trista McNally out of Alberta electrified Las Vegas a few months ago with their Emerald Rally.
Ultimately World Wide is growing. But more importantly, it is growing with business owners full of heart, full of integrity, and full of desire to help others create the lives of their choosing through mentorship.
There’s a lot of crazy stories out there about how the Amway business was built back in the day – my wife’s mom included – I’m sure glad I haven’t experienced any of that. Getting an education and going through a trust building process is awesome. Knowledge is power – once you get through a process you’ll have all of the information you’ll need to know. Don’t get through a process and well, you’ll be making a choice based on partial information. But make sure you’re being offered a chance to go through a process to learn. If someone is trying to hype you up and sign you up into some random Amway or even another MLM thing – be careful! Do your research with the BBB, the FTC and Revenue Canada (if you’re Canadian).
More and more people are making this opportunity work. When your turn is, is up to you.
Here’s to a warm, happy autumn to all.
