That means “truth in advertising” – for example: explaining that the tools-and-functions is strictly optional. I’m not sure how that influences their overseas business practices, however…. I would guess if one searched the Amway website for “Accreditation” – it might explain?
In the meantime, bookkeeping is universal. Point out to your friend that it’s impossible for a new recruit to make a profit from the sales of products if they are spending their money on tools and functions. Selling 100 PV of product yields about a $6 bonus check – which doesn’t even cover the cost of one N-21 tape here in the USA. And 100 PV is a LOT of product.
And yes, any good student of N-21 (or any other motivational blog) is going to want to recruit LOTS of people. They can’t help themselves…LOL! But it’s OK for you to say “no, thanks.” You don’t have to even give a valid reason – if it’s not interesting to you, then the answer is no. Period. With a smile.
There might be a chance your friend is hooked into a really rabid blog – and will be told NOT to associate with anyone “negative”. In these connotations, negative means anyone who isn’t part of the blog.
Your friend might be distant for a while – and all you can do is wait for reason to win over enthusiasm. Some folks really get caught up in the artificial love/forced excitement delivered by these blogs – I call them “Motivational Junkies”. Some have to hit absolute rock bottom before they walk away.
In the “files” section there are past histories of what other folks have done to lure loved ones away from the clutches of these blogs – don’t be afraid to read some of their experiences….just in case…
