As I was surfing the “internets” I found this information in a comment, “Per an email sent today to North American IBOs: “Amway North America (ANA) sales are up 9.7% from 2014” from http://www.thetruthaboutamway.com/15-consecutive-months-of-growth-for-amway-north-america/#comments. This is an obvious attempt to keep the North American IBOs, made up of mostly Hispanics, many of which are illegal aliens, from quitting. It also provides some fodder for the upline to brag about growth while overall Amway is shrinking. It also means the negative “growth” in markets outside North America is shrinking by more than the 12% reported, as the 9.7% growth in North America must be offset. We also don’t know whether the 9.7% growth included the Amway hotel and other non-MLM sales volume growth.
