Let me write in continuation to the previous blog regarding my decision to resign from Amway and choose a new path.
In fact after seeing some of the responses on my facebook page I have been thinking whether to write on this any more; especially after seeing the abusive and filthy languages some people have used. But on the other hand there are a large number of people who are silent, but want to hear more from me. They are contacting me by mail and messages. They are neutral and want to know the facts. I am writing this only for them. Not to bias anyone; but to make the world know why I had to take one of the toughest decisions in my life.
Amway is a company with great products and they will continue to bring out great products in the world. Who in the world will not appreciate their commitment to quality. There may not be many in this country, who had promoted the Nutrilite brand the way I have promoted. I still love Nutrilite products.
But to succeed in Network Marketing, having the greatest products is not enough. As per Robert Kiyozaki, business education system plays a major role in Network Marketing. What made me or many of the leaders successful in this business is not Amway; but the business education systems associated with the business. As long as a company wants to remain as a ‘100% Network Marketing Company,’ they should not try to reduce the significance of business education systems.
Another important factor, which decides the success of a Network Marketing business is the compensation plan. For people who join the business to achieve financial freedom, there should be attractive income. Especially in a country like India where the economy is growing at a high speed, where salaries have grown by five times over the last ten years, the compensation plan should be really rewarding. Yes, Amway is a good part-time business opportunity. But how far can it help one to grow with the economic boom in this country.
Next twenty five years are going to be the golden era for India. Ambitious people cannot be deprived of opportunities to create great wealth as long as it is through ethical and legal means. It is very well known that one cannot get this period again in his life. So those who want to move ahead with big goals and dreams, should be allowed to choose their path. There is no point in getting upset about this.
There is no point in getting upset about my decision too. I have taken this decision looking at those people whom I have been giving hope. Those whom, I have been inspiring to aim high and achieve great life rather than good life. When I know that the path we have taken may not take us to that destination, it became my responsibility to find another path and guide them through that as long as they believe in me. Questions like ‘how come you know about this only now?’ and ‘why didn’t you take this decision earlier?’ etc are all insignificant. I can take such a decision only when I become so sure that the present path cannot lead to the destination and more importantly only when there is an alternative path through which I can lead people to their destination. Honestly, in the last 13 years we never had any other alternative paths in India. Now when we found an alternative path, we chose that path and its upto the people whether to follow that path or not.
Only thing I can tell you, I and the leaders who are taking the new path of moving to Monavie, have done extensive research on the company/products and its policies/values/principles etc and got totally convinced. They are the fastest growing Direct Selling company in the world, having a range of products in the wellness domain. They are the pioneers in liquid nutrition. Glucosamine HCL, Omega 3 Fatty acids, Anti oxidants etc in the liquid medium. In addition Monavie has weight management products, food bars, nutritional energy drinks etc. In India they are going to launch a range of personal care and skin care range based on Ayurvedic formulations. All their products are patent protected. All products come with 100% money back guarantee. They have the best paying compensation plan in the industry, where every single effort is being rewarded. MonaVie is not a binary. They have patented hybrid plan where they have converged the goodness of most of the best paying plans.
As in most of the times emotions override logic, here also I am seeing that happening. However the reality cannot be ignored.
Having said this, I believe that we are all here in free enterprise. We are all here for freedom. We are all here for creating meaningful lives. Whichever path we are taking, lets enjoy the journey. Lets encourage one another and continue the journey to our destinations.
