GO WITH THE
PACK!
Building a better world
As we come to the close of the year, we look back
on all of the work we have done together. You
should be proud of all you have accomplished.
Many of you have surpassed your goals and you
continue to amaze us with your creativity, passion,
and entrepreneurial spirit. We are so proud of
all of you and we encourage you to look forward
to the New Year with even higher goals as you
continue to grow as leaders.
Since the beginning, everything we have done
– and continue to do – is built on our Founders
Fundamentals of Freedom, Family, Hope, and
Reward. And as we enter new countries and
regions, and continue to evolve our business,
we’ve learned that the entrepreneurial spirit is
alive and well. It’s the dream people have around
the world for a better life for themselves and those
around them.
All of our Founders Fundamentals are important,
but Reward is one that can mean many things.
One of the most rewarding parts of the Amway™
business is being able to support organizations
or causes that help make our world a better
place to live.
Many of you have
surpassed your goals
and you continue to
amaze us with your
creativity, passion, and
entrepreneurial spirit.
By building a better life, our business owners
understand the value of contributing to their
communities. It’s the acts of selfless courage,
commitment to great causes, and heartwarming
responses to those in need that can be found in
IBOs around the world.
It’s rewarding to give time and money to
something – or someone – you believe in, and
you have worked tremendously hard to improve
the lives of yourselves, your families, and your
communities. You should be proud that you
have been a great example for business owners
around the world to follow, as they each start –
or continue – to give.
Thank you for your partnership in helping people
live better lives. We couldn’t do it without you.
Rip. Take. Rock on. Repeat. It’s that easy to get the power of
Nutrilite® nutritional support into your day – every day.

FOUNDERS CROWN: THE CROWE AND DUSSAULT FAMILY LEGACY
Serving and leading by example
As successful IBOs, John and Jennie Belle
Crowe demonstrated service and leadership
to their children through their words and
actions. Growing up in the Crowe household,
says Kristin, was amazing. “Our parents
were always so positive and faith-oriented.
They really led by example,” she says.
Kristin continues, “Through their business,
my parents taught us if you help enough
other people get what they want in life, as
a by-product, you get what you want. My
husband Dave didn’t grow up in the business
like John III and I did, but it didn’t take long
in our marriage for us to decide an Amway™
business was our vehicle to give our family a
different life than the norm and serve other
people in the process.”
John III shares, “I’ve learned so much from
what my parents have told me, but also
by what they do. I learn whenever I am
around them. They exemplify the highest
levels of excellence in leadership, integrity,
communication, and relationships.” John
III also believes these lessons extend to
his parent’s successful marriage – a true
partnership. “One of the wisest, most
powerful things my dad taught me regarding
marriage is to always be the first to
apologize,” says John III.
Substantiating his father’s wise advice is
the celebration of John and Jennie Belle’s
42nd wedding anniversary this year. Kristin
remarks, “They are a phenomenal example
of a strong marriage.”
Living Life with Passion and
Positive Attitudes

I
ndividually and collectively, the Crowe and Dussault families bring an abundance
of passion, positivity, and people skills to their integrated Amway™ business. Many
say it’s in their nature, and that may be true, but it’s also a conscious choice. Like
most, they use logic and discipline to help build the business, yet unlike so many
traditional business owners, they offer heartfelt guidance, provide generous spirit,
and place steadfast faith in downline IBOs and what they can achieve.

The Dussaults have learned a lot from the
model set by John and Jennie Belle, and
now, as Kristin puts it, “The next generation
of little eyes and ears watching, listening to
us every day is motivation for us to be an
excellent example in every area of our lives.”
Learning through experience
John Crowe is convinced, “Only warriors can
lead other warriors.” That’s why he chose
to let his daughter Kristin and son John
Crowe III find their own way. “We wanted our
children to have the character and courage
to be successful in business and in life. The
only way for that to happen is to let them
struggle on their own and survive – to taste
defeat and find the strength to try again and
the persistence to follow through. Struggle is
part of the victory!”
It was a co-worker of Jennie Belle’s who first
introduced them to the Amway™ business,
shortly after they both completed college.
They followed their upline’s guidance –
discipline, persistence, focusing on goals,
and a willingness to learn and grow. Instead
of wondering whether it would work, they
jumped in and did the work. As John says,
“And it did work!” They still marvel at the life
it’s helped them achieve and the life their
children are achieving through the business.
“Our parents let us fail forward,” explains
John III. “They let us learn by our mistakes.”
Kristin adds, “Dave and I started at zero
PV in this business, just like everybody
else.” Dave elaborates, “We did every single
business meeting together as a couple. We
gave life to our own business by working for
it. John III gave life to his, too. Through this,
we’ve become leaders and mentors, and we
love doing it.”
“Our son, daughter, and David made the
choice to build their own businesses,”
remarks Jennie Belle. “They were determined
to earn their dad’s respect and the respect
of all the leaders they learned from as they
grew up. Kristin and her husband, Dave
Dussault, and John III have definitely earned
a great deal of respect. They continue to
amaze John and me with their strong work
ethic, humility, and huge hearts. We’re so
proud of them.”
Kristin and I have
an incredible
passion for the
next generation.
It’s important to
invest in them
now. They’re our
future!

FOUNDERS CROWN: THE CROWE AND DUSSAULT FAMILY LEGACY
Mentoring with heart
Playing favorites
In conversation with the Crowe and
Dussault families, why they excel at
mentoring becomes evident. One example
is the simple fact they prefer to refer to
downline IBOs in their organization as their
team, conveying a strong “we’re all in this
together” attitude.
The Crowe and Dussault families may
not play favorites when it comes to family
or team members, but they definitely
have favorite Amway™ products they
couldn’t imagine living without: Nutrilite®
supplements, Perfect Empowered Drinking
Water®, and XS® Pink Grapefruit Energy
Drink to name a few. John and Jennie Belle
admit they’re at the age when favorites
become products like Artistry® LuXury
Creme line and Youth Xtend™ skincare to
defy age and Nutrilite® Glucosamine 7™
supplement they now jokingly refer to as
“Crowe glue.” Jennie Belle remarks, “You
just can’t imagine the large number of
Nutrilite® vitamins the entire family takes!”
Jennie Belle mentions something Helen
Keller once said that beautifully sums up the
family’s approach: “Keep your face to the
sunshine and you’ll never see the shadow.”
Without a doubt, the Crowe/Dussault family
members see the best in every situation
and every person, and by doing so, bring out
the best in people. As a result, confidence
soars, courage flourishes, and commitment
strengthens among team members. This is
how leaders emerge.
The next generation of little eyes and
ears watching, listening to us every day
is motivation for us to be an excellent
example in every area of our lives.
– Kristin
Dave exclaims, “We love mentoring and
coaching. We focus on the people rather
than the next pin level – helping people
move their lives forward. That’s what it’s
all about.”
A thoughtful mentor, John III makes no
secret of how he feels: “I love my team
very much. Watching people grow and
become who God created them to be is so
satisfying. Because of them, I am extremely
blessed and excited about the future!”
With seven people in the Dussault
household, you can bet they have many
favorites too. Nutrilite® Double X® Vitamin/
Mineral/Phytonutrient supplement is at the
top of the list as a way to get their essential
nutrients. Kristin states she loves Artistry®
Youth Xtend™ skincare system, Artistry®
Ideal Radiance™ spot corrector, and
Satinique® hair care products for daily use.
She also says the family keeps XS® Energy
drinks and Nutrilite® Twist Tubes and sports
drinks in their cupboards as refreshing
options. And it doesn’t stop with those.
“You should see our kids’ list of favorites.
It’s long!” says Kristin.
Keeping positive
The Crowes frequently express their
gratitude for all they have in life. Jennie
Belle says, “We maintain a positive attitude
by focusing on our blessings in life. When
you take an inventory of your life, it’s wise
to look at what you have rather than what
FOUNDERS CROWN: THE CROWE AND DUSSAULT FAMILY LEGACY
you don’t have. Look for the best even in the
worst. Doing this helped us tremendously
after John’s nearly fatal injury years ago. A
positive attitude has also helped our son deal
with his health issues.”
Before his injury, John was an outstanding
gymnast and athlete. It may be true today
that he is unable to participate in every sport,
but it surely doesn’t stop John from being
active and involved. He loves to spend time
on and in the water. And when Jennie Belle
goes for a run, he rides alongside her on his
three-wheel bike. He also bike rides with the
grandchildren, much to their delight.
Finding inspiration
Consistently putting family first in their lives,
the Crowes and Dussaults are inspired,
encouraged, and influenced by each other.
John and Jennie Belle believe the business
has brought them closer as a family and
are pleased to see their son spend even
more time with Kristin and Dave since the
businesses have been integrated.
Although John III refers to his parents as his
“mentors and biggest heroes,” he lovingly
mentions a memorable letter Kristin wrote him
as he was entering high school and she was
graduating. “It was the most beautiful letter
full of sage advice. It was just really special.”
Kristin describes Dave as “the best husband,
father, and leader I know. I am in awe of him
on a daily basis. He is a selfless server and
giver, energetic leader, and my hero!” Dave
defines Kristin as “a beautiful, purehearted
spirit who loves people. She’s passionate
and confident as a business owner, wife,
and mother.”
We maintain a positive attitude by focusing
on our blessings in life. When you take an
inventory of your life, it’s wise to look at
what you have rather than what you don’t
have. Look for the best even in the worst.
– Jennie Belle
Planning for the future
With three thriving businesses in the Crowe/Dussault
family, it made sense to integrate them in 2011 through
the Amway succession planning process. “When we
integrated as a family business, it gave us all more of
a cause, and provided an arena for us to work more closely
together as a team,” comments Kristin. In 2012, the
combined business went Crown and in 2013, Founders
Crown.
Dave explains, “Because John and Jennie Belle built their
business, John III built his, and Kristin and I built ours,
we now have a combined Founders Crown business. A
successful multigenerational business we run together
with incredible passion.”
Today, the Crowes have a family legacy that can be passed
down to future generations, including the Dussaults’
five children – Maximus Deacon (7), Tristan Wallace
(6), Audriana Belle (3), Harper Capri (2), and the newest
member, Landon Graham (3 months).
John III is currently single yet he plans to marry and raise a
family one day. All the more reason for the Crowe/Dussault
business to have established a succession plan.

Investing in the next generation
Recently, Dave and Kristin Dussault have
begun focusing on the next generation of
leaders of their business team. Specifically,
hosting a Kids’ Leadership Day for children
I’ve learned so much from what my parents
have told me, but also by what they do. I learn
whenever I am around them. They exemplify
the highest levels of excellence in leadership,
integrity, communication, and relationships.
– John III
(ages 4 through 17) and their parents. The
first one held in 2013 at their home was well
received, and the next event, which was triple
the size, took place in September.
Kristin says, “We believe the next
generation needs to learn how to lead,
be confident, and cheer their parents on
as they work hard and build the business.
Having a day devoted to the children on
the team makes them feel special and
gets them thinking about leadership and the
future.”
For Kids’ Leadership Day, IBO leaders from
the Dussault team organize many agespecific activities. They also arrange for
several children to speak on leadership and
teamwork. Last year, John Crowe was one
of several adult guest speakers and was,
as Kristin describes, “a crowd favorite.”
In addition to learning about leadership,
children enjoy games (think teamwork),
swimming, zip lining, a huge ice cream
sundae bar, or this year’s hit, a shaved
ice truck.
Dave explains, “Kristin and I have an
incredible passion for the next generation.
It’s important to invest in them now. They’re
our future!”
The average monthly Gross Income for “active” IBOs was USD $202 (in the U.S.)/CAD $198 (in Canada).
Approximately 46% of IBOs in the U.S., and 48% of IBOs in Canada, were “active.”
IBOs were considered “active” in months in 2010 when they attempted to make a retail
sale, or presented the Amway IBO Compensation Plan, or received bonus money, or
attended an Amway or IBO meeting. If someone sustained that level of activity every
month for a whole year, their annualized Gross Income would be $2,424 (U.S.)/$2,376
(Canada). Of course, not every IBO chooses to be active every month. “Gross Income”
means the amount received from retail sales, minus the cost of goods sold, plus monthly
bonuses and cash incentives. It excludes all annual bonuses and cash incentives, and
all non-cash awards, which may be significant. There may also be significant business
expenses, mostly discretionary, that may be greater in relation to income in the first years
of operation. For the purposes of the calculation in Canada, individuals who were IBOs for
less than the entire year in 2010 were excluded.
Before registering as an Independent Business Owner (IBO) powered by Amway, you
should read and understand the AMWAY ™ Business Overview Brochure, which contains
important information for those interested in becoming IBOs.
Approximately 0.0158% of IBOs in North America achieved Double Diamond and Above in the year 2013.

EASTER SEALS: DROP ZONE
EASTER SEALS: DROP ZONE
Ready to Go
Over the Edge with Easter Seals™ Drop Zone
Not everyone would be willing to rappel 215 feet down
the side of a building. Amway Independent Business
Owner Greg Anthione believes that’s what makes the
Drop Zone fundraiser for Easter Seals disability services
so memorable – and fun.
“We go out and do things the average person wouldn’t
do, so we can raise above-average money,” Greg says.
Easter Seals™ Drop Zone events take place in cities
across Canada each year to raise money for children and
youth living with disabilities. Rappellers collect $1,500 or
more in pledges to qualify for the drop, with all proceeds
going toward providing kids with the tools and support
they need to be successful.
Along with the IBOs and others that join in – many
dressed as superheroes – Amway employees also
participate in a separate drop at London, Ontario, the
location of Amway Canada Headquarters.
“It’s just like
every other day,
except today we’re
going to go off a
20-story building.”
– Greg
Drop Zone has raised $10 million nationally since 2005,
and this year’s Ottawa event alone raised more than
$80,000 with over 50 participants. The Amway Canada
Yager Group collected $9,428 – the highest of any team
at Drop Zone Ottawa.
For people like Greg, the Yager Group team captain, it’s
a privilege to participate in something that makes such a
large impact.
“It’s just like every other day, except today we’re going to
go off a 20-story building,” Greg says. “This is just what
we do to help the kids help themselves.”

Benjamin McGhie
After breaking his neck and battling cancer, Ben McGhie survived
and beat the odds, crediting his large, tight-knit family and newfound
resolve to live life fully for his health, happiness, and success.
Family matters
“When I hear the word ‘hero,’ I think of my parents,” says Ben.
The fourth of 10 siblings, he appreciates everything his parents
did to raise them well.
“I remember my dad would wake up at six in the morning, drive us to
school, go to his construction job, then pick us up and take us back to
work with him,” he recalls. “We would work as long as we could, but
usually fell asleep at the job. I’d wake up in the middle of the night and
hear him still working. It’s who he is – he just keeps going, and does
whatever it takes.”
Ben also credits his mother for helping him to be strong. She passed
away in 2013 after battling cancer for five years. “When I went through
my own chemotherapy, she was there the entire time,” he says. “If I
fell asleep during treatment, she was there holding my hand when I
woke up.”
DETERMINATION
Now, Ben says that wanting to provide for his father is part of what
led he and his wife, Buffy, to become Amway Independent Business
Owners. “My dad is 64 and still works hard,” Ben says. “I want to retire
him and give back everything he gave to us.”
Ben and Buffy are also close friends with their upline Emeralds, Terry
and Jenny Brown, who have seen Ben’s selfless nature firsthand.
“I’ve known Ben for over nine years, and he’s one of the nicest, most
incredible guys,” says Terry. “He’s just phenomenal, he really is.”
Positive attitude
Ben’s parents instilled strong values in him: working hard for what
was important, staying focused on the good in life, and caring for
others. He’s applied these lessons time and time again when things
have been difficult.
In 1999, when Ben was 18, he went on a father-son campout with his
brothers and his dad. At the pool, Ben went down the 16-foot water slide
headfirst. He overcorrected as he slid and hit his head on the bottom of
the pool, breaking his neck.

Battle with cancer
In 2004, tragedy struck again as Ben was diagnosed with stage
3 cancer. Determined to beat it, Ben started on the strongest
level of chemotherapy possible. He faced treatment with the
same bright outlook.
“I remember him saying to me that some people don’t go to
every chemo session,” Buffy says. “In the beginning, he couldn’t
imagine not going. By the end, he realized it was a mental battle
to go. He knew what it was going to do to him physically. But he
never missed one session.”
2014
DETERMINATION
The Amway Hero Award for
Determination recognizes personal
responsibility, work ethic, and
dedication to self-improvement
despite diffi cult circumstances.
Being determined
means being a dog
on a bone. You don’t
stop. If you want
something, you make
sure it happens – no
matter what.
– Ben
“Right after I hit, the force crumpled me up into a ball,” says Ben.
“I was paralyzed for a minute or so. I couldn’t feel anything, but I
knew I needed to breathe, and fast.”
Ben prayed to God, asking for help to breathe; his body started to
unlock, and he touched the bottom of the pool. Surfacing enough
to catch a breath, he called for help. “I remember my dad, who was
trained as a paramedic, telling me that if I ever had a head injury
I needed to keep my neck stable,” he says. “I told people not to
move me until my dad got there to secure my neck.”
“Until that moment, I had never considered what it meant to have
your nerves go crazy,” says Ben. “It was like needles being jabbed
into every hair follicle all over my body. The pain covered me.”
Ben remembers doctors at the hospital talking about the anomaly
of the break – and how lucky he was. “My fifth vertebra snapped
in half,” he says. “The way it broke was just a miracle because if it
had broken in the opposite direction, I would have likely had issues
my whole life.” As Ben was in traction, his parents, friends, and
family all prayed for the doctors to know how to best proceed.
The next day, follow-up X-rays showed an unexplainable
improvement. Ben left the hospital wearing a halo neck brace to
keep his head still. “It was a miracle – there’s no other way to
explain it,” he says.
A quick healer, Ben’s recovery was rapid. He even walked across
the stage at his high school graduation. The whole time, he tried to
stay positive. “My goal was to have a good attitude through it,” he
says. “Making people laugh is the best way to take the focus off
me and my problems.”

Achieve
“Doctors tell you chemo is basically a race,” says Ben. “The
chemo attacks the cancer, but it also attacks the rest of
your body. They’re trying to kill the cancer before the chemo
kills you.”
Eventually, the chemotherapy stopped working, and the doctors
had to operate to remove a lymph node that would not shrink
any more. The procedure was serious – but Ben viewed it as just
another step in the process.
“In his mind, he was already healed,” says Buffy. “It’s just the
way he thinks. He knew that it was going to be fine, and he just
had to figure out how to get there.”
A year after the initial diagnosis, Ben was declared healthy
and has been cancer-free since. He says that his journey to
health was all about staying strong, even when things weren’t
easy. “Being determined means being a dog on a bone,” says
Ben. “You don’t stop. If you want something, you make sure it
happens – no matter what.”
Starting their own family
In 2011, due to cancer treatments and other complications,
Ben and Buffy learned they were unable to have biological
children. Their desire to start a family took them through the
foster care system, where they fell in love with their daughter
Mikayla (9 years old at the time). Mikayla was living in her
13th home and was targeted to be moved to a final group
home until she aged out at 18. The day before a meeting
where Mikayla’s fate would be decided, Ben and Buffy’s foster
license was approved.
“When we went to see her the first time,” says Ben, “I kept
preparing Buffy that we couldn’t get our hopes up yet. But the
second I walked in and saw her face, I heard a still, soft voice
whisper to me ‘This is your daughter.’ I knew without a doubt
that she was ours, and that God had a plan for us.”
Eighteen months later, they adopted Mikayla into her 14th
and final home at age 11.
“It hasn’t been an easy road, but Mikayla knows she’s part of
our story now,” says Buffy. “She came into a huge, welcoming
family. A dad like Ben is exactly what she needs – someone
who teaches her to get through the hard times no matter what.
We’re determined to love Mikayla past her pain.”
Ben feels there are many others out there who are more
deserving of this award than him. “I’m getting an award for
doing something that I feel you’re supposed to do. I just hope
that if somebody out there is going through any of the same
trials I have faced, I can inspire them to know everything truly
is going to be OK.”

Oscar Oviedo
Seeing the potential to create something bigger than himself, Oscar Oviedo turned
his love for the sea into a lifestyle of giving and environmental preservation.
Call to action
Oscar has always been connected to the ocean. Born and raised in the
Dominican Republic, he’s been scuba diving for nearly two decades.
But in 2006, a single blog post opened his eyes – changing a hobby
into an active pursuit of environmental conservation.
“A visitor on a tourist dive forum wanted to go scuba diving on the
northern side of the Dominican Republic near the city of Puerto Plata,”
says Oscar. “She made a post asking where the best spots were for
diving, and I gave her some suggestions.”
GENEROSITY
After returning home, the woman made a follow-up post about
the experience – and it wasn’t good. She wrote about the lack of
infrastructure, dives that were boring with little sea life, and dirty,
trash-filled beaches. “She criticized a lot about the Dominican
Republic,” Oscar says. “It was hard to read, but it was all true.”
Oscar took the criticism and responded constructively.
“I started with 15 friends,” Oscar says. “We each picked a beach to
clean. Some were places where my friends surf. I focused on the beach
in Barahona near where my father was born. There were 16 of us on 16
beaches, and we each thought we could get a small group of people
helping us – maybe 600 total at the most.”
Oscar and his friends were surprised at the response. “We had
more than 2,000 people turn up during that first year,” he says.
“We got a lot of people from area schools, churches, Boy Scout
groups – we had 400 volunteers in Barahona alone, which was a
really big deal for the city.”
In the years following, the small-scale project Oscar and his friends
started has grown to become the nonprofit organization Fundación
Vida Azul (The Blue Life Foundation). The foundation works with local
and international partners to restore the Dominican Republic’s
coastal beaches.

The Amway Hero Award for
Generosity recognizes
commitment to improving the
world through extraordinary
volunteerism or philanthropy.
Volunteers don’t earn
anything for what they

and being motivated

to build,” says Oscar. “People see us on the beach and ask for
gloves and plastic bags so they can join us. As of a few years ago,
we had 25,000 volunteers.”
Fundación Vida Azul also has an education program to teach
children the importance of protecting the environment. “It’s most
effective to work with little kids,” says Oscar. “After they’re 12
years old or so, they get interested in other things. But young
children can learn good habits early. They talk to their parents
about saving the planet and taking care of the places they live.”
The organization also hosts periodic community cleanups to get
towns involved with caring for their own beaches. “We say ‘The
beach that’s cleanest is not the one you clean the most, but the
one you dirty the least,’” he says. “We have to teach people to
take care of their own resources – we can’t always just go to a
beach and clean it up for them.”
Lasting impact
The foundation is currently working with a local artist who creates
large-scale environmentally friendly sculptures from iron, metal,
and concrete. Those figures will be sunk offshore – “an underwater
museum,” Oscar says – to give divers something interesting to
look at.
“Its mission is to join people who care about something and
think they’re alone,” says Oscar. “Some people collect dogs
on the street and bring them to shelters. Others look for
people and organizations that work with kids. It’s like a job
search engine where people can post events and activities.”
Helping people through business
Along with his philanthropic work, Oscar devotes his time
to his Amway™ business he owns with his wife, Asami
Tateyama. Asami originally started their business on her own
a few years ago. As a regional manager for an international
corporation, she frequently traveled for weeks. With Oscar
working as a vice president at a local bank, as well as his
time spent with Fundación Vida Azul, they were both busy.
“I was working until 9 or 10 in the evening. For what? To
see my daughters’ pictures on my desk?” Asami asks.
“I was looking for something different – and then I was
introduced to Amway and I thought, ‘I have to do something
different.’ Oscar saw in my eyes that I wanted it, and he
said, ‘she’s determined.’”
Once Oscar started meeting people, going to conferences,
and seeing the results of Asami’s hard work, the business
spoke to him too.
“As I learned more, I could see the business was about
helping other people help themselves,” says Oscar. “It’s like I
discovered myself again once I started. It’s given me balance
in my life. It’s part of my social life – I’ve met other people
with similar interests, and it’s opened a lot of possibilities.”
Today Oscar and Asami are Sapphire, and Asami believes the
business is a perfect fit for her husband. “Oscar cares for
his community, for our country, for our daughters Sumi (10)
and Emi (6),” she says. “It’s more than helping one person
at a time. He has clear ideas about the foundation and the
business – and he’s good at carrying them out.”
Oscar explains his life’s work as a true desire to make things
better. “Volunteers don’t earn anything for what they do,”
says Oscar. “It has to be out of the heart, the interest, and
being motivated and inspired.”
“If we can get something in the water, fishermen will be able to
make money by taking people out to go diving instead of fishing,”
says Oscar. “We can start building a tourism industry instead of
a fishing industry. People will fish less, so there will be more fish
around for divers to see. It’s about changing the economic model.”

Dexter and Birdie Yager
With a penchant for helping people realize their dreams, Dexter and
Birdie Yager find the greatest reward is seeing others succeed.
Humble beginnings
Long before reaching the astounding milestone of Founders Crown
Ambassador with 65 FAA (Founders Achievement Award), Dexter and
Birdie were a young married couple living in Rome, New York. “It was a
small mill town, filled with people who had good values, but there was
little opportunity,” says Birdie. “Coming from where we did, there was
no way to imagine anything close to what we have today.”
At the time, Dexter was working as a brewery representative, and
dreaming of something more. “All my life, I believed that I was going to
succeed and make something of myself,” says Dexter. “I was sick and
tired of being sick and tired.”
As they were looking for their next path in life, one of their friends
introduced them to the Amway™ business. After discussing it, Dexter
and Birdie decided to give the business one year of total commitment
and attention.
Now 50 years after that decision, Dexter and Birdie have built a
business that spans the globe. More important to them, they have
dedicated their lives to being leaders who inspire others, and to
helping countless people reach for their own dreams and become
leaders themselves.

“Real leaders are just ordinary people with extraordinary dreams,
decision, and discipline,” says Dexter. “A leader is someone who can
make others feel bigger and better when they’re around that person.”
Birdie remembers that as long as she’s known him, people have
found Dexter’s charisma and charm to be infectious. “I think it was his
passion for people,” says Birdie. “They could see his passion, and that
he wanted the best for them. That draws people to somebody.”
That passion comes from a simple motivation: showing people they can
achieve whatever they set their minds to.
“What makes us most fulfilled is pursuing dreams – and freedom
is a big part of those dreams – for us and for others,” says Dexter.
“Cheering people on, and seeing them succeed in life. Helping others
believe in themselves and begin to see their own potential inspires us.”

father’s personality and outlook were part of what helped
him come back.
“The things that really made him successful in business

Doyle. “When you hear about ‘mind over matter,’ it’s true.
It was all about his attitude and perseverance in getting

LEADERSHIP
The Amway Hero Award for
Leadership recognizes a
positive focus on mentoring,
teaching, and helping others
succeed without personal gain.
Family values
Real leaders are
just ordinary people
with extraordinary
dreams, decision,
and discipline.
– Dexter
The Yagers have seven children, and all of them played a role
in the family business growing up. “We’re proud of raising our
seven kids in and around the business,” says Birdie, “and the
tremendous influence it’s been on us and them.”
From a young age, each of the Yager children pitched in by doing
what they could: stocking shelves, bringing in products, answering
the phone. As they got older, three of their sons – Doyle, Jeff, and
Steve – saw the business as more than just a daily way to help out
their parents, and as something they wanted to be a bigger part of.
“I always wanted to do what my dad was doing: helping people,”
says Jeff. “I saw the changes people were having in their lives, and
I wanted to be able to do some of the same things that he had
done for others.”
Meanwhile, Dexter and Birdie were thrilled to have their sons
approach them about joining. “They just came right up through
the ranks and learned how to do everything as they became
experienced enough to do it,” says Birdie.
Doyle, Jeff, and Steve are continuing their parents’ legacy today
while helping the business grow. The boys say Dexter and Birdie
were the greatest mentors they could have asked for.
“They taught us a lot of basic fundamentals, like how to treat
people,” says Steve. “That the best way to get respect is by giving
it to others, and that everyone should be respected. Being honest,
having integrity in all you do. The things I learned from them stuck
with me, and I think about them every day.”
Dexter and Birdie believe that, no matter what their
children decide to do in the future, it’s important for them
to always remember to take time for helping others.
“We’re proud of our kids who are involved in the Amway™
business and continuing what we began by helping
thousands of people around the world change their
lives for the better,” says Birdie. “And we’re proud of our
kids who are pursuing their own dreams and making a
difference in people’s lives in other ways.”
Don’t let anybody steal your dream
When asked about the biggest factors in their success,
Dexter and Birdie are always quick to emphasize the
importance of knowing what your dream is, and never
letting go of it.
“Get a big dream, and don’t let anybody steal it,”
says Dexter. “And don’t just read about successful
people. Associate with the people you admire most,
and stick around.”
Dexter and Birdie stress that a big part of what makes
dreams into reality is relentless commitment. “We worked
very hard, tried to be as smart as we could, and just did
whatever it took,” says Birdie.
Part of that commitment is demonstrating what’s possible
to others. “You have to set the example, and be the
example for others,” says Dexter. “People don’t follow
programs, they follow people. You have to see how far
you can go in order to show others how far they can go. A
leader is someone who knows the way, goes the way, and
shows the way.”
The Yagers also emphasize the importance of giving
back where it matters, and they feel privileged that they
can contribute to dozens of charities and organizations,
including Easter Seals disability services. “We’re proud of
our support of the Easter Seals organization, and all the
kids and adults that fight for a sense of independence,
regardless of their disabilities,” says Birdie.
In the end, the Yagers believe the basic ingredients for
success are simple.
“Everybody needs a dream,” Dexter says.
“And everybody needs somebody to love them,”
Birdie adds.
Their parents also taught them about hard work and dedication
– and lived what they taught. After Dexter suffered a stroke in
1986, he fought hard to recover. The Yagers’ sons know that their

2014
David and Sharron Coley
These IBOs built impressive careers while serving their country, and they
continue to affect others’ lives through their Amway™ business.
Working as a team
For both David and Sharron, the U.S. Air Force represented opportunity.
David joined the military simply to find a better life. “I didn’t want to
work in the local steel mill,” he says, “and my uncle was in the Air
Force as well.” Looking for the chance to make something of himself,
he decided to enlist while in high school.
Sharron had no military background in her family – yet she’d always
dreamed of becoming a pilot. Raised by a single mom with little income
meant there was no money for her studies. “I hadn’t heard of the Air
Force Academy, but I met a recruiter and saw the Air Force as a way to
get that training,” says Sharron.
PATRIOTISM

Achieve
Once they graduated from the Academy, both of their careers took off.
David became an expert in Aircraft Maintenance and Logistics and
won many awards for his work. Meanwhile, Sharron reached her goal
of flying. She became the first African American woman to pilot the C-5
Galaxy, the military’s largest cargo plane – nearly as long as a football
field and as tall as a six-story building.
After a year and a half of dating long-distance, the couple married in
1994. Since then, they’ve each continued to play valuable roles in their
military professions.
“After 9/11, the Air Force flew C-5s into Diego Garcia, a little island in
the Indian Ocean that’s as close as you can get to Afghanistan,” says
David. “This was monumental effort, and something we’d never done
before. We bed down five C-5 aircraft on the island, getting the cargo
as close to the troops on the front line as possible. We were flying
round-robin missions from Diego Garcia to Afghanistan, and minimizing
the troops’ need to resupply by dangerous convoys. Sharron flew, while
I was managing all the maintenance and personnel.”

The Amway Hero Award
for Patriotism recognizes
noteworthy service to
community or country through
civilian or military endeavors.
A hero is what you are
to someone else, not
who you think you are.

I had such a sense of
pride in supporting the
soldiers because they’re
the real heroes.
– Sharron

Achieve
“Sharron and I have always worked together,” David laughs.
“Her piloting the planes and breaking them, and me fixing
them up after.”
But there’s also a serious side to serving in the same military
branch. “They never let couples deploy together,” says Sharron.
“For the family’s sake, they never want to risk losing both
people at once.”
A strong business
When David was first presented with the Amway™ opportunity, he
realized what a difference it could make in their lives and was
excited to get started. Sharron was focused on her career at the
time – and supported her husband once she fully understood the
potential of the opportunity.
“David would ask me to meet people and attend events to see
what it was all about,” says Sharron. “The more time I spent, the
more I got to experience pieces of the Amway values – freedom,
family, hope, and reward – in ways I hadn’t seen other places.”
“We both come from single-parent families,” says David, “and I
knew we’d need to support our parents someday, as well as our
kids, Sierra (15) and Darron (17). We were looking toward the
future – we built our Amway™ business ‘yesterday’ so we’d have it
for ‘today.’”
The Coleys continued to steadily develop their business over the
years. Then, just one month after Sharron graduated from her pilot
training course, the 9/11 terrorist attacks happened. “My pilot
career got off to a rough start,” she says. “Right away, we began
pre-positioning troops and their gear in preparation for war.”
“We were away for a year,” says Sharron. “And our
business held strong. We compare it to another
couple we know – they had to turn their restaurant
over to their managers. When they came back, their
business had failed. We’re so fortunate that our Amway™
business continued to grow at a time when everything
was so unsure.”
Today, the Coleys have reached Founders Emerald, while
Sharron continues to serve in the Air Force reserves.
The couple sees even greater potential as their business
heads into the future.
“In the military, you meet a lot of people and you get to
know them, but you lose touch so easily,” says Sharron.
“We’ve had people in our Amway™ business for over 15
years. Our coaches are Dave and Kristin Dussault. We saw
them impacting people’s lives and the challenges they’d
gone through. They were inspiring to us, and we wanted to
be like them.”
Being a patriot
“I didn’t understand patriotism until I joined the Air Force,”
says David. “During basic training when I first stood in
formation to salute the flag at a retreat ceremony and
the hair stood up on the back of my neck – I never lost
that feeling.”
That feeling instills a drive within him to continue helping
others. “It’s not about you, it’s about everyone else,” says
David. “It’s about the country. A hero is what you are to
someone else, not who you think you are.”
“I had such a sense of pride in supporting the soldiers
because they’re the real heroes,” says Sharron. “While I
was flying in and out of Iraq, I brought home the soldiers
who were fighting. When my eyes met theirs, I knew they
had endured some of the hardest things imaginable. I was
proud to have been a small, small part of making their
missions successful.”
The Coleys are also committed to seeing others succeed,
and helping them realize their own goals. “Our positions
taught us about helping people, staying focused on a goal,
and helping people achieve it,” says David. “We look at our
business and what we can do to further our country. When
you give people hope and help them succeed, you can
bring the good out of them. One at a time, you’re changing
a person, changing a household, and changing America.”

that gives us the opportunity to partner
in rewarding deserving students for

congratulations Ruth!”
– Karen DeBlaay and the Hansen Family
A better future
Around the same time, Ruth started getting involved in
her mother’s Amway™ business, going to events with her
and talking about dreams and possibilities for the future.
Eventually, Ruth became an Amway Independent Business
Owner herself.
“I don’t want to settle for a job where I’ll be following
orders all day,” says Ruth. “I want to manage my own
schedule and help others. Amway is offering me just that.”
Today, Ruth is living at home and attending a local
community college. In the meantime, she continues to
work hard at her Amway™ business.

“I’m attending school because obtaining an education
is necessary in order to grow as an individual,” believes
Ruth. “Building my Amway™ business at the same time can
help open many doors for me. Upon receiving my college
diploma, I could go find a decent job, or I could dedicate my
time to building my Amway™ business.”
Ruth is also working to become a published author. “It has
been a dream of mine for a long time now. I simply love to
write,” she says. “I want to write things that will add value
to people or help them, even if it’s in the smallest ways.”
Family Opportunity
“If you had a warm plate of food to eat for
dinner,” says Ruth Nuño, “you were rich.”
Growing up in an environment of poverty,
Ruth, the third of five children, learned as a
child to value her family as the most important
thing in the world. “We are very close – and
we’ve been through a lot together,” she says.
She also started pitching in at a young age,
Ruth says. “It’s always been second nature

Achieve
to help out doing what I could. I started
with simple things like taking out the trash,
washing the dishes, or sweeping the floor.”
When she was 16, Ruth started working at
a fast-food restaurant to help support the
family. It was a rough job and the worst part
was “knowing I couldn’t do anything about the
way I was treated, because the necessity to
work was there.”
‘Greater and bigger things’
“My family is not rich,” says Ruth, “but the life we were
living a couple of years ago is nothing compared to the life
we are living now. Amway has given us the one thing we’ll
forever be grateful for: Hope.”
WHAT ARE YOU STUDYING?
I’m majoring in writing with a minor in Spanish.
I love putting words on paper, and keeping my
roots intact is very important to me.
HOW DO YOU BALANCE YOUR
BUSY SCHEDULE?
It’s challenging to coordinate a full-time job, going
to school, and building my Amway™ business. I’m
busy a majority of the time and it requires a lot of
work, but it’s definitely worth it.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF
AND YOUR BUSINESS IN FIVE YEARS?
My goals are to obtain my bachelor’s degree,
publish my first book, and most importantly, be
an Emerald in Amway. This can help me give
my parents and future family the lifestyle they
deserve. It’s definitely possible.
ANYTHING YOU’D LIKE TO SAY TO THE
HANSEN FAMILY?
Receiving this scholarship is the biggest
accomplishment of my life. Thank you for opening
new doors for me and for everything you’ve done
– not only for me, but for my family. I will forever
be grateful.
The Amway™ business has also given Ruth leadership
qualities and training, a boost to her self-esteem, and
help in overcoming the things she once saw as limitations.
“Through Amway, I know my family and I are on the road to
greater and bigger things,” she says.
“Amway offers families and individuals with an alternative
and opportunity to do something different,” says Ruth.
“My parents came to this country with high hopes. They
believed that America was a land of opportunity. Amway
provides us with that opportunity.”

Giving back
Now, Sohaib hopes to one day establish a charitable
hospital in the area that would provide rich and poor alike
with the best amenities, usually only available in private
hospitals for the wealthy. He says he’s always wanted to
be a part of something that serves people and helps both
individuals and the greater community to grow.
“Back then it might have been a dream, but today I see my
dream coming true,” he says. “Amway has given me the
hope and the potential to believe it can become a reality.”
Sohaib’s family is from Pakistan, and two of his six siblings
attend medical school there, which led him to his volunteer
position. Sohaib is currently living and studying accounting
in Chicago, where he was introduced to the Amway™
opportunity by his older brother Saad.
“I am very thankful to my family for being with me
and especially my brother for sharing this wonderful
opportunity,” Sohaib says. “It is a privilege to be part of
the Amway™ business.”
Caring for others
Sohaib believes stretching beyond his comfort zone and
presenting the business to others is a way to help them
move toward improving their own lives.
“I didn’t know there was a way I could help people take that
step,” he says. “I have always thought big, but never felt
my thoughts could turn into a reality. I definitely feel Amway
can help me realize my goals.”

In the summer of 2013, Sohaib was
volunteering at a government hospital in
Karachi, Pakistan, when a terrorist attack
struck the city. Dozens of panicked victims
were rushed to the emergency department,
and the hospital erupted into chaos.
Sohaib left that day shaken. He considered
quitting, but ultimately decided to keep
volunteering. “My older brother Fawad helped
me calm down,” he says. “He encouraged
me to be unselfish and to think of others. I
realized that quitting wouldn’t solve anything.”
“It was one of the most heartbreaking
moments I’ve ever experienced,” he says.
“Seeing every kind of person – men, women,
children, and older people – bleeding,
shouting, and crying. I wished I could help
them recover from their wounds and save
their lives, but I was helpless.”
The experience led Sohaib to realize that
poor administration was a major problem at
the hospital, and at others in the country.
“I witnessed people losing their lives
just because of an inadequate supply of
blood samples, oxygen cylinders, surgical
equipment, and lack of skilled health care
providers,” he says. “It shouldn’t be that way.”
“This business is all about caring for others and sharing
with them the blessings that we have,” Sohaib says. “It
is about going out, serving the masses, and sharing the
opportunity. You never know who’s out there, looking and
ready to change their life for the better.”
With three generations involved in the Amway™
business, we have learned commitment, caring,
and long-term vision are values that will create
great results. Sohaibuzzaman shows all three of
these characteristics. The use of his talents at
Loyola University and demonstration of caring
through medical mission trips is exemplary – yet
his vision to create a charitable hospital is most
inspiring. We are blessed to be a small part of his
journey and wish him all the best!

Different motivations
Nmesoma was introduced to Amway when she was a
freshman at University of Minnesota Twin Cities. “I was
working at an assisted living facility, and I was struggling
with transportation, while looking for new ways to make an
income,” she says. “My sponsors Iman and Basit Vohra
approached me with the Amway™ opportunity. Once I
started using the products, I knew I wanted to pursue it.”

Hard Work Rewarded
Nmesoma Akpati was only nine years old
when she relocated to the United States with
her family, looking for a new way of life and
greater opportunities. They left behind what
she describes as “a normal childhood with
the normal things everyone had” for a life of
cultural and financial difficulty.
“In Nigeria, my parents had stable and
reliable careers … my mother was a nurse
and my father was a college professor,” says
Nmesoma. “Once we arrived in America, they
had to start over.”
38
Achieve
After the move, her mother found a job in a nursing
home while studying to get her license to practice
in America. Nmesoma says she couldn’t help but
feel a sense of pride for her mom. “Despite the
difficulty, she knew her hard work would eventually
be rewarded,” Nmesoma says.
With her mother as an example, Nmesoma did
her part to support her parents’ vision and goals.
“From the day our airplane landed at the airport in
Minneapolis, my list of responsibilities increased,”
she says. “My time became dedicated to assisting
my parents by taking care of my three younger
brothers while they focused on finding stable jobs.”
Nmesoma attributes her early leadership strength in
part to insights gained from her studies in psychology
and neuroscience. Through this coursework, she learned
how people with different personalities have different
motivations and methods to pursue what they want to
achieve – whether short- or long-term goals.
“I learned to relate to people by better understanding their
personal experiences,” she says. “I began to appreciate
the significance of individuality, because no two people are
exactly alike.”
Drive and determination
Nmesoma says seeing all the people who had
succeeded in the business was motivating. “I didn’t go
through the doubtful phase,” she says. “I knew it would
be difficult, but I also knew I could do it. I’m integrating
the leadership strategies I gained through my past into
my Amway™ business.”
Neuroscience, and I want to minor in either public
health or business administration. I started with
an interest in psychology to learn how people
work, but I was most interested in neuroscience
and how brain chemistry can impact the way you
see the world and your perspective.
HOW DO YOU BALANCE YOUR
BUSY SCHEDULE?
I use the support of my sponsor to keep up
with my fellow IBOs. I also use Facebook,
LinkedIn, and Amway.com a lot to stay connected
in my business.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF AND

Still building my business. I’d like to be at
Platinum level or higher as a leader for my team.
Ultimately, I want the freedom to do whatever I
want to do.

United States, and today she views them as a launching
pad for her leadership experience and her role as an
Amway Independent Business Owner.
“Despite the difficulties that my family and I faced
during our transition, our hard work and achievements
were rewarded,” she says. “As an Amway IBO, I would
not be able to work so well with others without the solid
foundation I developed my first few years in America.”

RECOGNITION: EMERALD
EMERALD
Arti and Ravi Chawla | Texas
Reaching Emerald is a significant achievement, the result of
sustained effort and successful leadership. As Emeralds, IBOs
have demonstrated their ability to sell, recruit, train, motivate,
and teach others to do the same. They have built healthy
organizations and are reaping the rewards of their hard work.
Living the dream: When Ravi and Arti Chawla received their first check from
their Amway™ independent business, they knew it was real. Ravi exclaims, “It
was a big belief builder. I felt very proud receiving my first check from my very
own business.” Arti shared in the joy then, recalling, “Our confidence grew each
time we met with downline IBOs, but when we chose to attend a major BWW
conference, we realized how big this opportunity really was.” Ravi adds, “That’s
when this business went from head to heart for me!”
Looking to the future: The Chawlas are excited to achieve Diamond level and
“look forward to being work-from-home parents to our kids after becoming
Diamond IBOs,” according to Ravi. “The way Amway is designed blows our
minds – helping yourself by helping others. Truly a win-win model.”
Matías and Marta Alfaro | Illinois
Sharron and David Coley | Virginia
Living the dream: “There’s no limit to what you can learn and experience in this
business,” expresses Marta. Matías and Marta agree, “It’s wonderful to see
the happiness in other people when they realize they can accomplish what we
have and then to watch them, little by little, accomplish their dreams. We are
so grateful for this opportunity.”
Living the dream: David Coley recognized the potential of the Amway™ business
right from the start, yet it took Sharron a few years into it before she understood
its sustainability. “After 9/11, we saw people with traditional businesses
crumble, but ours didn’t fall apart.” Sharron adds, “It convinced me of the
potential this business offered for us, for our children, and downline IBOs.”
Looking to the future: Matías and Marta’s plans for the future are all about
their children. “We want to provide a college education for all of our children.
We’d like them to reach Diamond level in the business. And, for our children
who would like to live in the U.S., we are doing the necessary paperwork to
make it possible.”
Looking to the future: “We are excited to have the opportunity to build our
business as a family unit and create a legacy,” David comments. Elaborating,
Sharron says, “At the Emerald level, we’re experiencing just a glimpse of the
kind of impact we can have on others. We’re excited about making an even
greater impact as we reach higher pin levels and having our children join us
in the business.”
Armando Armilla and Eva Ortiz | California
Amy and Dustin Delay | Texas
Living the dream: Armando and Eva’s lifestyle is completely different from the
early days. “Little by little, we started accomplishing goals. We began to earn
incentive trips and travel. This opportunity not only changed our lives financially,
it has made us better people. We have an extraordinary life,” explains Eva.
Living the dream: Because of the Delay’s secondary income through Amway,
they have been able to purchase their dream home, five wooded acres with
a pond and a pool. “We now have a place our family and team can hang out
together,” remarks Amy. “Since becoming IBOs we’ve developed meaningful
friendships that will last a lifetime.” Dustin says, “Our mentors have taught us
to lead by example. People do what you do. If you teach people to get the same
or better results than you, you can all be successful.”
Looking to the future: Armando encourages new IBOs to keep working for the
freedom and the dreams that can be achieved through their Amway™ business.
He and Eva are working toward buying a new house and increasing their
contributions to the church they attend. “When Armando’s parents retire,
we will provide for them and they know that. It gives us all great satisfaction,”
says Eva.
The average monthly Gross Income for “active” IBOs was USD $202 (in the U.S.)/CAD $198 (in Canada).
Approximately 46% of IBOs in the U.S., and 48% of IBOs in Canada, were “active.”
IBOs were considered “active” in months in 2010 when they attempted to make a retail
sale, or presented the Amway IBO Compensation Plan, or received bonus money, or
attended an Amway or IBO meeting. If someone sustained that level of activity every
month for a whole year, their annualized Gross Income would be $2,424 (U.S.)/$2,376
(Canada). Of course, not every IBO chooses to be active every month. “Gross Income”
means the amount received from retail sales, minus the cost of goods sold, plus monthly
bonuses and cash incentives. It excludes all annual bonuses and cash incentives, and
all non-cash awards, which may be significant. There may also be significant business
expenses, mostly discretionary, that may be greater in relation to income in the first years
of operation. For the purposes of the calculation in Canada, individuals who were IBOs for
less than the entire year in 2010 were excluded.
Before registering as an Independent Business Owner (IBO) powered by Amway, you
should read and understand the AMWAY ™ Business Overview Brochure, which contains
important information for those interested in becoming IBOs.
Approximately 0.0356% of IBOs in North America achieved Emerald in the year 2013.

Looking to the future: In the coming years, the Delays plan to retire from their
traditional jobs, once they achieve their next goal of going Diamond. They also
dream of visiting Peter Island. “Going on an all-expenses-paid incentive trip to
Miami for Achievers was awesome.”

RECOGNITION: EMERALD
Érika and Ramón Estrada | Nevada
Ada and Ernesto Horruitiner | Florida
Living the dream: Prior to joining the business, Ramón was a tile setter and
Érika worked as a receptionist at a casino. Ramón is pleased. “I no longer have
a demanding job that requires me to get up early every morning, answer to a
boss, work eight to 10 hours a day. Because of Amway, we’re free to work for
ourselves, grow personally, and dream again.” Érika exclaims, “We have more
time to spend with our three children, Alondra, Gustavo, and Osvaldo.”
Living the dream: For 17 years, Ernesto and Ada Horruitiner operated a beauty
salon, working long hours and seeing very little of their children, Ernesto (13)
and Crystal (8). When they were introduced to the Amway™ business, they
recognized it offered hope for the future – toward financial freedom, more time
to spend as they wish, a chance to make a difference in people’s lives. Today,
the Horruitiners no longer own a beauty salon. They’re able to devote much
of their time to family, helping downline IBOs, and pursuing their dreams. Ada
reports, “Because of this opportunity, we are now able to do what we want with
our time and our lives!”
Looking to the future: Ramón and Érika’s goals include finding a bigger house
they both like, traveling to several other countries, and, most importantly,
helping those who are hurting and in need. “We want to help homeless
children, victims of domestic abuse, and the elderly. Really, anyone who is in
need,” states Ramón.
Looking to the future: The Horruitiners are enthusiastic for the future and all it
holds for them and for their family, traveling the world, and leaving a legacy for
their children.
Hermes Galiano and Yorleni Fuster | Florida
Randy and Raye-Lynn Jassman | Washington
Living the dream: “Our Amway™ business has afforded us the opportunity and
the means to help others,” says Hermes. “Within the business, we’ve created
a great family, accomplished many of our dreams, and are helping others
accomplish theirs. For me, it’s a great reward of being an IBO.” Yorleni adds,
“We do what we can to provide financial and emotional support to others.”
Living the dream: “This business has given us many wonderful experiences
and rewards because of the time, freedom, and people it has brought into our
lives,” remarks Raye-Lynn. “The quality of our marriage and relationship with
our kids, Dalton (17) and Devin (16), and the blessing of mentors who have
helped us are all great rewards.” Randy comments, “Witnessing the positive
impact this business has had on people is amazing. We love helping people.”
Looking to the future: Hermes states, “I’d like to travel the world, have my
children grow up and take over the business, and own a private airplane and
boat.” Yorleni says, “I dream of financial freedom, plenty of time to spend with
my family, and for my children to have the freedom to do what they want in life
because they’re going to inherit the business someday.”
Looking to the future: The Jassmans plan to continue leading in this business,
providing a good example for their sons, and developing strong leaders. It’s
important to them to create a legacy that will last for generations to come.
Josefina Marquez and Luis Gonzalez | Illinois
Yoel Labusta and Maylen Abeledo | Florida
Living the dream: “Our Amway™ business has given us the freedom to do
whatever we want,” states Luis. “We have more time to help others achieve
what we have achieved, more time to spend with family, and more time to
share special moments. We have a better income and peace of mind.” Josefina
is grateful for how close they’ve become as a couple and family. “The business
has united us.”
Living the dream: Prior to joining the Amway™ business, Maylen was an actress,
singer, and model. Yoel and she also had other businesses. When they made
it to Emerald level, they stopped it all. “We knew that what we had ahead of us
with Amway was so much brighter.”
Looking to the future: Sharing their dreams, Josefina says, “I’d like to give to
a nonprofit organization for orphan children, help those in our life who are in
need, and have a house where my children have space and privacy.” Luis longs
to travel “to places I’ve never been before and enjoy wonderful foods without
worrying about the expense.”

“It has been such a positive transformation. Our family is united now and we
have a wonderful circle of friends. Our lives have changed 100%,” reports Yoel.
“We have freedom in the whole sense of the word.”
Looking to the future: Originally from Cuba, Yoel and Maylen would like to “help
family with basic needs like food, medicine, and clothing. We also want to travel
the world, not just as tourists. We want to visit countries as ambassadors of
peace who have come to help those in need,” expresses Yoel.

Yongcheng Liu | New York
RECOGNITION: EMERALD
Kevin and Tara* Ramanan | Trinidad
Living the dream: When he was introduced to the Amway business,
Yongcheng says, “First, I was a customer, then I became an IBO so I could help
others support their health. My purpose isn’t to make a lot of money, it’s to
help downline IBOs and customers take care of themselves for their families.”
Yongcheng reports his greatest reward through the business is a healthier
®
lifestyle supported by Nutrilite products. “Money is important, but health is
superior. It’s been a wonderful experience to make others happy and healthier
through the Amway™ business.”
Living the dream: Kevin and Tara agree, “It has been a great reward to work
full-time in the Amway™ business and spend our days with our one-year-old son,
watch him grow up, and not leave him in day care.” They also enjoy helping
others through their Amway™ business. “I love when an IBO in our group tells
me he just made a sale or received a check. Seeing the sparkle in his eyes
is rewarding, knowing that I had a little to do with it!” Tara is thankful to be
associated with positive people every day through the business. “It’s made me
a better person, for sure.”
Looking to the future: Yongcheng is optimistic about the future as he strives
to reach Diamond level. It is his dream to continue to help more people live
healthier lives and achieve their dreams. “By helping others attain their dreams
and be happy, I will achieve my life’s goal.”
Looking to the future: The Ramanans dream of attending Diamond Club and
visiting Peter Island someday. They also plan to build a new home in Trinidad.

Ryan and Noella Olynyk | Alberta, Canada
Sapna and Gaurav Verma | Illinois
Living the dream: The Olynyks agree the greatest reward of the business is
freedom. “This opportunity has changed our lives completely. We are now
work-from-home or work-at-home parents to our son, Blayden, born late August
of this year.” Prior to joining the business, Ryan was a personal fitness trainer
and Noella worked as a registered nurse. “If we hadn’t learned of this business,
we’d be working a lot and apart from each other.”
Living the dream: Family is a priority and the Vermas are grateful for their
Amway™ business, which allows them to spend more time with each other.
Sapna exclaims, “There is no price tag for that! While more and more people
are leading separate lives in this world, being an Amway IBO provides an
opportunity to work together while achieving what you want.”
Looking to the future: Gaurav says, “We keep on keeping on in good times
and bad and we’re consistently improving our skills for ourselves and downline
IBOs. It’s why we made the goal of Emerald, and now we’re on to the next goal.”
Looking to the future: Ryan and Noella look forward to helping thousands of
people create freedom in their lives through their Amway™ business. “We want
to build our dream home someday and also mentor our children to create a
business and life like we have,” says Noella.
Emigdio and Maricela Pérez | Illinois
Amanda and Brandon Wood | Wisconsin
Living the dream: Prior to joining the business, Maricela admits, “Building the
business together has helped bring us closer together.” Emigdio explains, “I
used to deliver furniture from morning to night. I was exhausted. I didn’t see
much of my wife or daughters.” Now, the Pérez family is able to spend quality
time together, from sharing meals at home to enjoying Amway™ incentive trips.
“I have also gained confidence and learned to communicate with people.”
Living the dream: Because of their success through hard work, the Woods
have no debt and are, as Brandon puts it, “free to focus on more important
things in life, like each other, our families, and our dreams, rather than worry
about money.” Amanda explains, “I never thought we would be out of debt
in our 20s!” Brandon adds, “We felt like we owned our business from the
day we received our first check. Amway provides the greatest platform of
entrepreneurship in the world, and our generation is in need of a different
opportunity than what’s being offered through the current job market. It’s
working for us and I know it can work for others like us.”
Looking to the future: Emigdio dreams of owning a horse ranch while Maricela
longs to travel, especially to Israel. Both share a desire to help their parents
and provide their girls with a good education at private schools. “It is our hope
that our girls never know unemployment and one day join the business! Our
14-year-old says she can’t wait to sign up,” exclaims Maricela.
The average monthly Gross Income for “active” IBOs was USD $202 (in the U.S.)/CAD $198 (in Canada).
Looking to the future: The Woods are excited about the future. Amanda
explains, “My next goal is to help my husband transition into the business fulltime. Second, we have plans to travel and build our business together. Third,
our next move is Diamond. We always have our sights on the next goal!”

Trip locations are subject to change with many 2016 destinations to be announced. Available only to IBOs whose conduct demonstrates high
ethical and business standards aligned with the goals and objectives of Amway and its related businesses.
The average monthly Gross Income for “active” IBOs was USD $202 (in the U.S.)/CAD $198 (in Canada).
Approximately 46% of IBOs in the U.S., and 48% of IBOs in Canada, were “active.”
IBOs were considered “active” in months in 2010 when they attempted to make a retail
sale, or presented the Amway IBO Compensation Plan, or received bonus money, or
attended an Amway or IBO meeting. If someone sustained that level of activity every
month for a whole year, their annualized Gross Income would be $2,424 (U.S.)/$2,376
(Canada). Of course, not every IBO chooses to be active every month. “Gross Income”
means the amount received from retail sales, minus the cost of goods sold, plus monthly
bonuses and cash incentives. It excludes all annual bonuses and cash incentives, and
all non-cash awards, which may be significant. There may also be significant business
expenses, mostly discretionary, that may be greater in relation to income in the first years
of operation. For the purposes of the calculation in Canada, individuals who were IBOs for
less than the entire year in 2010 were excluded.
Before registering as an Independent Business Owner (IBO) powered by Amway, you
should read and understand the AMWAY ™ Business Overview Brochure, which contains
important information for those interested in becoming IBOs.

It was the vision, integrity, and leadership of Amway
founders Rich DeVos and Jay Van Andel and seven
forward-thinking IBO Leaders that gave birth to an
advocacy organization in 1959. This Association
was created then to fairly represent the needs of
the Business and its IBOs to ensure success.
For 55 years, the foresight and hard work of the
Association founders has earned them respect
and admiration around the globe – and will continue
to do so for generations to come. In the Amway
family, these entrepreneurs are universally admired
and respected. We are proud to call Jere and Eileen
Dutt, Fred and Bernice Hansen, Joe and Helyne Victor,
and Walter Bass (who served as the first Association
President) pioneers, role models, and heroes of the
Best Business Opportunity in the world.
In working with Rich and Jay on the development of the
Business Opportunity, the Dutts, Hansens, and Victors
supported five key principles in its development:
