Gary Newell is a successful Amway Diamond. His wife Tammy is his business partner.
They qualified as Diamonds in 2006. They participates in the LTD (Leadership Team Development) Amway Motivational Organization. Gary has been in the business many years and he still actively builds his Amway business.
During my two and a half years in Amway I listened to more than 1,000 tapes and CDs. I was hooked on them like a bad drug and couldn’t get enough of tapes. Most were good, some were bad, and a few were exceptional.
Although I was not part of the LTD Line Of Sponsorship, and I was not part of Gary Newell’s downline, I did stumble across one of his tapes when I purchased a large lot of Amway tapes on eBay.
That tape was titled the “Fellowship of the 2%.” I still love this tape. It absolutely motivates me and fires me up.
No, I’m not in Amway anymore, but the information on this tape is very powerful. Although I no longer have a copy o the tape, I was fortunate enough to find a recording in a YouTube video. Listen for yourself.
***** If you can listen to this entire seven minute video and not be fired up, there’s something wrong with you!

Three Lessons I Learned from Gary Newell
Here are a few things I learned on the tape:
# 1 Contingency Plans are Not Necessary
When you know what you want, and you want it bad enough, you don’t need a back-up plan. He says “I am not making a back-up plan for failure because I am not planning to fail.”
# 3 Don’t Let Anybody Steal Your Dream
You have to protect your goals and dreams at all cost. Sometimes your friends and family will be your biggest critics. In addition, you will stumble across others who will do everything and anything to talk you out of your dreams. Do not let them win!
# 3 If You Want to Be Understood by the 2%, You Will be Misunderstood by the 98%.
Don’t worry about what others think! No one cares about your future as much as you do. Surround yourself with people who have what you want in life, and listen to their advice. Do not take advice from people not qualified to give it to you.
These lessons can be applied in an Amway business or any other business venture.
