I feel your pain, Lazlo. Let's try and keep it in perspective, shall
we? To begin with, Amway distributors don't get a "signing bonus" for new
people they bring in. Nor do we make money directly off the backs of our
poor beleaguered friends and families. The money to be made in this business
is money that in the normal way of doing things, would go in to the pockets
of Advertising agencies, wholesalers, jobbers, shippers, and warehousers.
What is wrong with redirecting that money to oneself and others who, like
yourself, see the opportunity in this? I'd say your friends are offering you
something very cool indeed, if you had but eyes to see. Yes, when one first
starts this business, one goes first to the people one knows. If you found
something cool, which could benefit others as well as yourself, wouldn't you
want to share it? I understand that it's kinda creepy to have your best
friend suddenly start talking about things you've never heard him talk about
before, and using phraseology that he obviously picked up from a motivational
tape. Give him a break. This is a difficult business at first. It takes
time to incorporate new knowledge, no matter where it comes from, and make it
sound natural when you speak about it. Remember the first time you spoke in
class? The first time you asked a girl out for a date? Your first job inter-
view? Not the most comfortable things to do, but you survive and learn. In
the interim, some people we talk to become dismayed at our enthusiasm for
what we are doing and choose to interpret it is though we had joined a cult
or some such nonsense.
