The Top 27 Amway Diamond Distributor IBO Top Earner Success Story Distributors of All time

Today, I want to share my list of the top 27 Amway Diamond Distributors of all time, as I see it.

This list will cover both current and former Diamonds, U.S. and foreign, and living and deceased Diamonds covering the 50+ year history of the company.

I have to tell you that putting this list together was lots of fun.  It took me about 24 hours to research, write and edit this information.

I’m a big fan of Amway, even though I am no longer affiliated with the company (read my story).

I spent about 2.5 years in the company with the World Wide Dream Builders line of sponsorship and maintained the 2500 PV level for about a year.

Amway is THE pioneer in the network marketing industry, paving the way for many other MLM Companies.  Every network marketer in every company should be grateful for what Amway did for our industry.  Their victory over the FTC in 1979 was a HUGE victory for our entire industry.

They have so many success stories through the years.  From what I found online, there are currently more than active 4,000 Diamonds and above in Amway.  And if you added in all of the former and inactive Diamonds, I’d be willing to be that number would be well above 10,000 (best guess)!

Boiling that list down to the top 27 Amway Diamonds of all time was no easy task!  To be quite frank with you, I’m only familiar with a very small percentage of these success stories (many were from the 1960s and 1970s before I was even born), but I’ve given it my best shot to give you an accurate list.

Before we get too deep into the article, here’s what you should know upfront:

  • I do not know specifically how much money any of these distributors made in their Amway business or with their system income, since that information is not public record
  • I do not know the exact number of people in each person’s team
  • I do not know how long each one of these distributors was partnered with Amway
  • Not all of these distributors are still with the company
  • Not all of these distributors are still alive
  • This list covers Amway distributors from the early 1950s to the present day
  • Most of the people on this list are American Diamonds and above
  • I do not expect you to agree with everyone I have on the list, or the ranking, it is just my opinion
  • The ranking is based off what I personally know about each person, how long they have been with the company, how much money they made, how many successful leaders and distributors they have on their team, and the level of the influence that I thought they had in the business and the industry
  • Amway is a registered trademark and I am not affiliated with the company in any way

Before I give you the list, I should clearly define what an Amway Diamond is. 

  • Have 6 qualified legs (groups of people) that do 7500 PV (points) for 6 out of the 12 calendar months during the fiscal year
  • Three of those 6 legs must be in market
  • You must maintain 7500 PV outside of those six legs for six of the twelve calendar months

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, here is my list:

# 27 Robert and Lois Stonelake

The Stonelake’s helped put Amway on the map.  They built a huge organization within Amway and then sold their business in 1985, thinking that Amway was on the downswing. Their (former) downline now has millions of people in it, with leaders such as Jim and Nancy Dornan and Kaoru Nakajima, both successful distributors on this list.

# 26 Fred and Bernice Hansen

Fred was a successful distributor in Nutrilite with Rich and Jay and helped them form Amway. Fred and Bernice achieved Crown in 1975.  Fred died in 1968 and Bernice passed away in 2012. Their business is now managed by their children.

# 24 Kenny and Donna Stewart

Kenny Stewart is a former Crown in Amway.  His business was terminated due to a lawsuit in court.  This guy had a monster organization with lots of diamonds in it.  Many of his successful leaders were terminated too.

# 22 Dan and Bunny Williams

This classy couple was one of the early distributors with the company and they helped draft the original sales and marketing plan.  They went on to become Crowns.  Joe served on the Board of Directors during the early years.  Their children and grandchildren are VERY successful in the business, too.

# 20 Jere and Elieen Dutt

Jere and Eileen Dutt were the first Diamonds within Amway, reaching that milestone in 1964. And that’s why I put them on this list.  They were part of Nutrilite with Rich Devos and Jay Van Andel for several years, prior to helping start Amway. They qualified Crown in 1979 and their business is now run by their grandchildren.

bill britt amway meme# 6 Bill Britt

According to some reports online, they are within the top 20 earners in the ENTIRE MLM Industry.

# 2 Dexter Yager

When I think of Amway, the first person that comes to mind is Dexter Yager.  He and his wife Birdie joined Amway in 1964 and built quite perhaps the largest organization within Amway. They are the leaders and founders of the InterNET line of sponsorship.  Their business spans the globe and does business primarily in the U.S., Canada, India, Colombia, Mexico and Guatemala. Dexter is pretty much the founder of the “systems” within Amway.  Currently, they are Founder’s Crown Ambassadors with 65 FAA points.

# 1 Barry Chi and Holly Chen

This couple built a dynasty in Amway.  To the best of my knowledge, they have the biggest team on this list.  They have more than 2000 Diamonds in their organization and well over one million distributors.  They are leaders of the Plum Blossom line of sponsorship.  Their business spans the globe and they are Founder’s Crown Ambassadors with 77 FAA points.

Trends I’ve Noticed with Amway Diamonds

I’ve studied a lot of Diamonds in Amway.  I enjoy studying successful people in many different companies, to be honest with you.  After all, success leaves clues.  Here are some “common” trends I have noticed with the Amway Diamonds.

  1. Most of them have been with the company at least 30 years, if not longer
  2. Most of the Diamonds took minimum five to ten years to get to the Diamond level; a few hit it quicker than that, and many took much longer than that
  3. Most of the Diamonds have one, at most two or three “Diamond” legs, and several other smaller Platinum sized legs
  4. Most have the Diamonds have sponsored at least 100 to 200 people personally, if not more than that

Conclusion

In summary, Amway is the biggest MLM Company in the world.  It has a long and proud history. The people on this list are responsible for much of the company’s success.  All of these individuals built huge organizations within Amway.  Some of the distributors are still alive and some are deceased.  Some are still with the company and others aren’t.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my list of the top 27 Amway Diamond Distributors of all time.  Feel free to leave a comment below to share your thoughts about who you think are the most successful Amway Diamonds of all time.  I look forward to hearing from you.

    I have been an Amway distributor for the past 6 years. I think Amway is a very good MLM company. They have top notch products that last a long time and they have competitive prices. They offer a lot of rewards to their distributors and the whole system is set a bit better (in my opinion) than any other MLM out there.

    If I were to guess I would say there are more than 10.000 Diamonds in the world. I’m thinking over 20.000 all over the world, but I can’t tell for sure.

      They are a good company, but not the only good company in our industry. I’m not sure how many Diamonds there are that are active and currently qualified with that rank, but I’m sure it’s a big number. I hope you enjoyed the post. Good luck in your business.

    Wow! The comments are just about as exciting as the post was. Amway was the first NWM company I ever heard of. It’s nice to know they are still around! You did a fabulous job on sharing about the diamonds. I’m sure it really made you proud to be a part of the company at one time.

    Hi Chuck, Actually David and Nadia Comyns were the couple who put Amway on the map in Australia, when David and Nadia became the first Crown Directs outside of North America in seven (7) years in 1978, with 23 legs. They were among the first four people to join the fledgling company when it tip-toed into Australia in April, 1971., along with David’s late parents, the Diamonds John and Dorothy Comyns. It was David who saved the company in OZ, for the products were all made here initially, and it was all rubbish, for no company wanted competition from the Yanks, so David insisted on the products being imported from the States. The rest is history. On the other hand, the Sala group took all of twenty (20) years to become Crown – which now takes 18 legs – with David Comyns as the Sala up-line. David extols the virtues of shouting the word AMWAY from the rooftops to everyone, and retailing the products as well as sponsoring, while the so-called ‘Networkers’ prefer to deny the name and creep up on people, showing the plan alone without looking deeply at the sin of Retailing. Eight years of pioneering to reach the top, against the negative publicity about ‘Pyramid Schemes’, against twenty years in an easier climate, without concentrating on selling as well as ‘showing the plan’? Is there a lesson there?

      Yes I agree with you,

      I sell about 2000-3000 pv worth products every month to my retail customers. I never told to join the business (of course it took almost 3 yesrs to reach this level) When my customer base grew, the customers who were buying regularly, I told to sign up and save money ( I let go of my retail profits). Now I have 7 direct down lines who are also great at selling Amway products, Each one of them sells close to 1000 pv, we are group of 12 crazy sales people who enjoy their work in Amway, sharing the great products helping people. And of course making some decent money on the side. (All of us have regular jobs/business)

    Amway is very active in South Florida where I live
    I have personally known at least 3 new Crown Ambassadors from the last two years: Jose Bobadilla from Colombia, Ángel & Maite de la Calle from Spain and Patrick & Joyce Joe from Thailand.

    Those are incredible testaments to the success one can achieve in Amway or other reputable MLM companies. When you pointed out the fact that they started decades before the internet was available, boy, that brought back memories. I chuckled when I read “the 3-foot rule” and “3-way calls”. Those are still good practices today, but I haven’t heard those terms in a very long while.

    My mom became an Amway distributor in the 60’s because the products were biodegradable. We lived on a lake and the resident’s around the lake all had pipes dumping the laundry water into the beautiful lake! Mom was green before the term was coined. She was very concerned about the health of our lake. I then became a distributor in my 20’s. My sponsor and his wife were very nice, but they absolutely insisted that I not tell anyone that I was inviting them to an Amway demonstration. Several of my good friends came for the first presentation that lasted almost two hours. During that two hours, a few of them asked, “is this Amway?” I felt so uncomfortable and my sponsor asked them to please be patient and to continue to listen to the presentation. When it came out that he was in fact presenting Amway, my friends felt duped and I felt like a crook. I loved the products, but I don’t think I ever gave another presentation.

    Is it still called Away? I know the name was or has changed over the years.

    Thanks for the success stories and history of such a successful company.

    Chuck, Mitch & Diedre didn’t put Amway on the map in Australia. Most of thier business is outside of Aus. Peter and Helen McKenna along with other couples such as Peter & Lyn Maddison, Craig & Anna Deane built Amway Aus from the ground up. They had 30,000 people coming to events in the mid 90’s.

      You say you are proud of Amway Balchand, are you a member or distributor? I am just curious.

      My mate works as a teacher at 2 different places and at one of those, the head person has recently re-involved herself with Amway. It had been a long time since I used any Amway products and Maggie came home with a batch of vitamin and mineral supplements. They are somewhat expensive, but I am feeling like a young man again.

      Yes, I have a pride in Amway also.

    I had noticed in your list Chuck that you mentioned a few that had their Amway membership terminated.

    I must first commend Amway if they did this because of using inaccurate demonstrations or telling false information. I believe all network marketing companies should use this example.

    I just wanted to recommend that you do a post on the reasons some have been terminated. This can help people not make the same mistakes. Amway is a top MLM company world wide and anyone who is a member should know the rights and wrongs in the company’s system.

    It could also be that some terminated were done so wrongfully by Amway. It would also be good to know if this was so.

    Thank you Chuck. This was a great article.

    Bill Britt was one of those individuals who understood that possibilities and opportunities are in front of everyone, and through our own power and perseverance, we seize those opportunities and turn them into successes. Bill’s 1.5 million distributors show his determination. He created jobs, a company which would continue for years after his passing, and most importantly he became a strong example of a commendable entrepreneur.

    I admire Bill Britt, and though he passed away in January of 2013, his legacy lives on. His strength and stability show that he was a true man of excellence: a perpetually praiseworthy quality.

    Amway Diamonds always inspire and empower me. I find that the successes and values of Bill Britt, though, stand out the most. He was a man of freedom, hard work, entrepreneurship, and a proud supporter of Amway. Amway, being a large and ferocious company to help entrepreneurs succeed, has paved the way for people with dreams to accomplish their goals since 1959. Among these people stands Bill Britt.

      Bill Britt was an extrordinary individual. Even though he has passed on, there are many lessons we can still learn from this Amway legend. I had run across an excellent biography of Bill Britt’s life at this blog: https://dougwead.wordpress.com/2013/01/27/bill-britt-amway-legend/

      Doug explains everything Bill went through and achieved.

      If network marketers all could duplicate the methods Bill Britt used in his Amway career, they all would be doing very well.

    I thought the blog post was absolutely fantastic as it provided me with an insight into the importance of network marketing for individuals as well as organizations as a whole. Business leaders such as Dexter Yager and Max Scharz helped to create Amway the way they wanted it to be. There have been many success stories over the years; however, none have been as awe inspiring as those of the top Amway earners and their team. The top leaders all had the drive and determination tocreate the kind of life they wanted for themselves as well as their family which is why they achieved their dream.

    While many people achieved wealth beyond their wildest dreams they did not have the same influence as Barry Chi and Holly Chen. The couple had more diamonds as well as other distributors than anyone else in the organization. Other leader’s had business interests in Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada and New Zealand; however, their down line did not have the same depth as Barry and Holly Chen’s.

    In conclusion I would suggest Dexter Yager is a close second; however, even his influence is not as significant as Barry Chi and Holly Chen’s as the couple created a larger dynasty than their closest competitor could hope to achieve.

    There are a lot of great names here and all of their stories are really inspiring. But I think my favorite listed here of Max Schwarz. He and his late wife Marianne started from scratch in 1977 and eventually spread their business from Germany into Poland, Austria, Italy, Hungary and Russia. His downline is super impressive and even after decades in the business, he remains focused and motivated. Even more inspirational, his children have followed in his footsteps, with daughter Anja taking over his business in Austria.|The other thing I really like about Max is that he is also very willing to help other work towards his level of success. His “Max Club” helps train and motivate others to reach their diamond qualification and he spends numerous hours every week mentoring and advising people who aren’t even in his downline. He’s he best of what Amway has to offer and he’s had a huge impact on everyone who’s worked with him.

      This just goes to show that Amway will always be a strong force in the MLM arena. I often hear people say that the market is too saturated, or there are too many distributors in my area. These are just excuses. If a person has the desire and perseverance, Amway is still a great program with wonderful products and the ability to make money beyond a person’s wildest dreams. As they say: you just gotta believe.

    Robert and Lois Stonelake were probably kicking themselves after selling their down line in the 1980’s. After they put that much work into their business, I hope that they got a high sales price. Still, MLMs are like anything else in the business world: there are natural ebbs and flows in value. I wonder what they got into after Amway, and if they met the same level of success there.

    I was intrigued to learn that the founder of Amway (or at least a co-founder), Richard M. DeVos. owns an NBA team. How many MLM business owners can say that?!

      Dreaming is overrated. Having the desire to WORK is what it takes to succeed. You can dream until the cows come home, but until you roll up your sleeves and get busy nothing will happen.

      I totally agree with Chuck on his idea on dreaming too. Yes, it is good to have a dream, but if that is what you think will make success, good luck with that. I know there are some who put that picture of a mansion or a Ferrari on their car rear view mirror and say over and over they are going to have that, but unless they get out and meet, share and sell, they will never get it unless a rich uncle dies and leaves it to them.

      Yep, dreaming can be overrated.

    Vira Arkhipova and Oleksiy Mautanov are Founders Crown Ambassadors in Amway Ukraine. An Amway Founders Crown Ambassador is someone with 20 legs who qualify at the Silver level for all 12 months of the Amway fiscal year. In my opinion, that’s pretty impressive.

    The couple participates in the Network 21 line of sponsorship, which provides motivation, training and business support materials to its Amway distributors. This includes seminars, conferences, websites, books, tapes, coaching and other business support materials.

    According to several internet reports, they are included in the top 400 income earners in the entire network marketing industry. With more than 2,000 MLM Companies in business, that is no small feat!

    When it comes to building a large Amway business, Vira Arkhipova and Oleksiy Mautanov know what they are doing. They are some of the top leaders in Amway and they have a downline that spans the globe. They are exceptional leaders, trainers, recruiters and motivators. If you are considering joining Amway, you should look for a successful sponsor, just like this couple. They can definitely help you succeed.

    Their upline Diamonds are Double Diamonds Marek and Izabella Bujwiccy. If you have ever worked with them personally, please share your story by leaving a comment to this post. Tell us whatever you can about them, your experience in their downline, and the system. Thanks.

    Mikio and Yuka Kaku are Amway Crown Ambassadors from Japan. They reached that achievement level in 2008. They’ve been involved in the Amway business for many years (close to three decades now) and have developed a great reputation as leaders, motivators, recruiters and trainers.

    Mikio and Yuka Kaku built their Amway business the old fashioned way, by talking with friends, strangers, and family members. They shared the products and business opportunity via in-home meetings, one-on-one meetings and three-way calls. From day one, they treated their business very seriously. They are still active in the business today.

    I have no idea who their line of sponsorship is, but I do know that their upline Diamond is Takeshi and Hidemi Azumi. According to one internet report, they are some of the top earners in the entire network marketing industry, ranked # 147 of 400. They have a large downline, with tens of thousands of distributors, mostly in the Asian markets.

    This couple is a true credit to Amway and the network marketing industry. Anyone that’s achieved this level of success, and maintained it for so many years, definitely knows what they are doing. I credit their success to their work ethic, hard work, leadership and perseverance. This is the type of couple you would want as your sponsor.

    If you have ever worked with Amway Japan Crown Ambassadors Mikio and Yuka Kaku, I would like to hear from you. Please share your experience working with the couple. Just leave a comment to this post to get started. Thanks.

    Luo Bin and Zheng Wei Liang are Amway Crown Ambassadors in China. Their upline Diamonds are Zheng Yu Mei. They joined Amway many years ago and built their Amway business by sharing the products and business opportunity with their friends and family. Over the years, they have built a large downline throughout Asia. As of today, they are some of the most respected leaders in all of Amway.

    According to a recent internet report, they are ranked as the # 175 income earners in the entire network marketing industry. That’s pretty impressive, considering there are more than 50 million people in this industry. As you can tell, they are dynamic leaders, trainers, recruiters, excellent motivators, and awesome mentors. They know how to build a large network marketing downline and sustain it for many years. That’s something that very few people ever do.

    I’m trying to find out more information about this couple, such as:

    1) Are they still active in the business?

    2) Have you ever met them before?

    3) How big is their group?

    4) What AMO do they participate in?

    5) How many downline Diamonds do they have on their team?

    6) What year did they join Amway?

    If you have ever worked with Amway China Crown Ambassadors Luo Bin and Zheng Wi Liang, I would love to hear from you. Please share your personal story with the rest of our online community.

    Nanae and Seisuke Arima are Amway Crown Ambassadors in Japan. They reached that pin level in 1996. I’m not sure which Amway Motivational Organization they participate in or who their upline Diamond is.

    According to one online website, they are one of the top 400 income earners in the entire network marketing industry. I’m not sure if that’s true or not. In either case, they are in the top 100 earners in the Amway business, too.

    When they first got involved with Amway, they grew their business by hosting in-home meetings and one-on-one presentations. As they sponsored new distributors, they helped them sponsor new distributors and find new customers. They simply repeated this process until they had a large group.

    This couple is the eptiome of the network marketing industry. If you want to make it in this industry, you should model their work ethic and leadership. Simply put, they are an amazing MLM Success Story.

    Soomboon and Manwiga Khunkhlai are Crown Ambassadors from Amway Thailand. They joined Amway in 1987. Within one year they reached the Ruby pin. They reached Diamond in June 1990 and finally hit Double Diamond, Triple Diamond and Crown Ambassador all in the same year (2003). That is very impressive.

    They built their Amway business the old-fashioned way. They held in-home meetings and one-on-one presentations for friends and family members. They also prospected strangers by using the three-foot rule. As you can tell, they are great recruiters.

    As they sponsored new distributors, they worked with them personally and helped them succeed. Over time, they built a huge organization that now spans the globe. According to one internet report, they are the # 160 income earners in the entire network marketing industry.

    They are affiliated with the TOP4 line of sponsorship. TOP4 provides training, motivation and business support materials to help Amway distributors grow their business. TOP4 holds conferences and seminars, and sells business tools such as books, tapes, websites and CDs.

    With so many Amway Horror Stories out there, it’s nice to read about people who achieve success with Amway. One thing I really admire about this couple is that they rolled up their sleeves and did the work. Few distributors ever do that. They consistently prospected, found customers, showed the plan and built a team. When they faced obstacles, they pressed forward. And they made a lasting commitment to build their Amway business. As a result, they achieved monumental success.

    He was a very dynamic leader who helped many other people build large and profitable Amway businesses. He had exceptional leadership, communication, recruiting and motivational skills. He was the type of person you would want as a sponsor. Sadly, he passed away in March 2010.

    Her business is located mostly in Russia and the Ukraine, but she does have dowline distributors in other countries too. She built her business the old-fashioned way.

    Ryusuke and Elaine Seto are Crown Ambassadors with Amway Japan.

Over the course of many years, they built a large downline that now spans the world.

That puts them in the top 1% of the top 1% of all earners. They reached the Crown Ambassador level in 1996. I’m not sure of their current pin level, or if they are still active in the business.

    Obviously, they are great leaders who know how to build a large and profitable Amway business. They are great motivators who understand recruiting, sponsoring, training, and helping others. Some of the reasons they’ve achieved such huge success with Amway is their strong work ethic, their burning desire to succeed, their commitment to treat their business like a real business, and perseverance. Most distributors who join the company don’t work even 1% as hard as this couple did.

    Robert and Nicole Belli are Crown Ambassadors in the Amway business. They live in France. From what I found online, I believe they joined the Amway business sometime in the late 1970s or early 1980s. I’m not sure who their upline Diamond is or what training system they participate in.

    They did a great job building Amway France. They have thousands of downline distributors throughout France. They got started in their Amway business by sharing the products and business opportunity with friends and family members. They taught their downline how to retail the products and sponsor new distributors. As a result of their exceptional leadership and outstanding sales and marketing skills, they became some of the top earners in all of Amway.

    What I found most impressive is that this couple built their business before the invention of the internet. That means they had to use one-on-one presentations, in-home parties, hotel meetings, and three-way calls to build their group.

    John and Pat Hendrickson are Amway Crown Ambassadors. They reached that achievement level in 1980. They joined the business in 1964, after attending a business opportunity meeting with Robert Stonelake (deceased). Prior to meeting their sponsor, they learned about the business opportunity from an Amway employee.

    At the time, John was involved in Real Estate. But the Hendrickson’s quickly decided to build an Amway business instead. Pat built up a nice client base and John focused on sponsoring. Within a few short years, the couple built a large and profitable Amway business. They held in-home meetings and one-on-one presentations to share the business opportunity and products with potentail customers and distributors.

    They participated in the International Connection Line of Sponsorship for many years, which provided training, motivation and business support materials for its Amway distributors. Recently, the International Connection merged with Network 21.

    Leonard and Esther Kim are FAA 40 Points Crown Ambassadors in the Amway business. They live in Korea. The couple joined Amway in 1990 while they were living in America. About a year later, they decided to move back to Korea to grow their business overseas. Since then, their business has reached new heights.

    Their downline currently has more than 400 Diamonds in it. In the year 2002, they broke 240 Diamonds in their organization. Most of their downline is in Korea, but they do have some distributors in the United States, too. In fact, their group is one of the fastest growing groups in all of Amway. Anyone who breaks 240 new Diamonds in one year definitely knows how to build a business!

    They lead the World Wide Dream Builders Korea training system. Additionally, they are founding members of the TOP4 organization. They built their business through in-home meetings and one-on-one presentations; working with friends, family and strangers.

    Apparently, Mr. Kim was an Amway customer for nearly 15 years, before anyone ever told him about the business opportunity. Amazing! So if you have customers in your group, make sure you share the business opportunity with them! Their upline Diamond is Eugene and Sarah Kim.

    In my opinion, they are a true credit to our industry. They are exceptional leaders, motivators and trainers.

      I wonder if Mr. Kim was a customer of the same Amway distributor for all of those fifteen years. If not, can you imagine being the Amway sales person (or people) who did not approach him about the business opportunity, and then watched someone else do it? It just goes to show, while you don’t want to be overly pushy about your business opportunity, you need to bring it up at some point!

    Kenny Chin is an Executive Diamond in Amway Malaysia. He joined the business in the early 1980s and went Platinum in 1986. It took him another 14 years, but he finally reached Diamond in 2000. From what I could find online, he is one of the most popular Diamonds in Malaysia. His upline Diamonds are Khu Chong Kok and Chai Choo. His sponsor is Kuala Lumpar.

    When he joined his Amway business, he got started by working his warm market. Amway Malaysia was still fairly new at this time. He talked with friends and family and met with prospects. As he sponsored new Amway distributors, he helped them get started. He worked with his serious distributors to train and motivate them and to help them get their first few distributors started. As a result of his hard work, his organization now spans many different countries and has thousands of distributors.

    I believe he participates with the CRADOR and CA Success Associates line of sponsorship. The CRADOR and CA Success Associates provide training, motivation and business support materials for its Amway distributors. This includes books, tapes, seminars, websites, and toll free numbers designed to help distributors build their business.

    Amway Malaysia opened for business in 1976. It currently has approximately 200,000 distributors. Network marketing is very popular in Malaysia. Amway competes with several other large companies such as Nu Skin and Herbalife.

    If you have ever worked with Amway Malaysia Executive Diamond Kenny Chin, I would love to hear from you. How did he help you? Where were you in his organization? How long were you involved? When were you involved? To share your thoughts, simply leave a comment to this post.

    Johannes and Roma Simatupang are Founders Double Diamonds in Amway Indonesia. They participate in the Network 21 training system. Their upline diamonds are Beni and Rainy Wayong. I can’t find the exact date the couple started their Amway business, but I think it dates back to the 1980s.

    As of today, the couple has a large Amway downline in many different countries. It consists of thousands of Amway distributors, all hoping to build their own successful business.

    Amway Indonesia Double Diamonds Johannes and Roma Simatupang started their Amway business by working with friends and family. As they grew their team of personally sponsored distributors, they started working in depth, helping their downline build a downline of their own. They used in-home meetings and one-on-one meetings to share the products and business opportunity. Through the years, they went from small beginnings to huge success.

    They are currently active with Network 21, one of the largest Amway Motivational Organizations. The purpose of Network 21 Indonesia is to help, to educate and to inspire Amway distributors, by providing books, tapes, seminars and business support materials. They actively speak at conferences and seminars and are still building their business.

    Although I have not met this company personally, I have heard many great things about their leadership skills. If you know them, or have worked with them in the past, I would love to hear from you. Tell us about your experience working with them.

    Paul and Linda Agus are Double Diamonds with Amway Indonesia. They first joined the company in 1991. At that point in time, the couple lived in Australia. Shortly after joining the business, they relocated back to Indonesia.

    It took the couple about two and a half years to reach the Diamond level. It is said that the couple currently has more than 25 diamonds in their downline. In addition, there are tens of thousands of other distributors trying to achieve success as well.

    The couple built their Amway business by talking with friends, family members and strangers. They utilized in-home meetings, group presentations, and one-on-one meetings to show the plan and sponsor new distributors. When they sponsored new people, they helped them achieve success. Over a period of a few years, they built an enormous Amway business with thousands of downline distributors.

    Paul and Linda Agus participate with Network 21. Network 21 Indonesia is an Amway Motivational Organization (AMO), which provides motivation and training to Amway distributors within its line of sponsorship. This includes books, tapes, seminars, websites, conferences, toll free numbers, coaching and business support materials.

    From what I found online, Double Diamonds Paul and Linda Agus are very popular speakers and trainers with Network 21 in Amway Indonesia. They travel all over the world sharing the dream, motivating their team, and providing training. They are excellent speakers with wonderful people skills.

    Marek and Izabella Bujwiccy are Amway Double Diamonds from Poland. They are affiliated with the Network 21 line of sponsorship. They have downline Amway distributors in several different markets to include Poland, Russia and the Ukraine.

    Their upline Diamonds are Mihaly and Maria Turcsik. They have many successful Amway distributors in their downline to include Amway Crown Ambassadors Vira Arkhipova and Oleksiy Mautanov. There are also many Diamonds, Emeralds and Platinum level distributors.

    Marek and Izabella Bujwiccy built their Amway business by sponsoring friends and family members via in-home meetings and one-on-one presentations. They also utilized the three-foot rule to meet new business prospects. When it comes to building a large MLM organization, this couple really knows what they are doing. They are excellent recruiters, motivators and trainers.

    More importantly, they’ve been involved with Amway for a long time now and have maintained a large and profitable business throughout the years. That is a true measurement of their leadership skills. Very few distributors ever reach the same level of success this couple has, let alone maintain their success for decades.

    If you have ever worked with Amway Poland Crown Ambassadors Marek and Izabella Bujwiccy, please share your experiences with the rest of our online community. What was the system like? What were they like? When did you work with them? How long were you involved with the business? I look forward to hearing from you.

    Robert Angkasa is an Amway Crown in Indonesia. He built his Amway business by sharing the products and business opportunity with everyone he knew. He did one-on-one meetings, conference calls, hotel meetings and in-home meetings to find new customers and distributors.

    According to one online website, he is one of the top 400 income earners in the entire network marketing industry. I’m not sure if that’s true or not. Either way, it’s very impressive.

    He participates in Network 21, an Amway Motivational Organization designed to train and motivate its Amway distributors. Network 21 is a privately owned company, owned by Jim and Nancy Dornan. It is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. It provides tapes, books, CDs, seminars, websites and other business support materials.

    Prior to joining Amway, he was an Engineer and Private Banker. He’s been full-time in Amway since 1994. His upline Diamond is Mitch and Deidre Sala. His sister and brother-in-law are also Crowns in the Amway business.

    Simply put, Amway Crown Robert Angkasa is a legend in our industry. He is a superstar recruiter, motivator, trainer and leader. He’s successful because he has a big dream, he works hard and he is persistent. If you were going to join Amway today, Robert would be the ideal sponsor.

    If you have ever worked with him personally, I would love to hear from you. When did you meet him? Where were you positioned in his group? How long were you involved with your Amway business? Just leave a comment to this post to share your story with the rest of our community. Thanks.

      My husband and I were I Amway from 1990 to 2005. I saw many crooked happenings. People going bankrupt because they were trying to keep up with their uplines. And honest Diamonds and Emeralds literally thrown out of Amway. Away is the Devil itself.

    Mike and Susan Bundy are very successful distributors in the Amway business. They are Founder’s Diamonds with the company. They joined Amway sometime around 1980, when Mike was approached by his friends, Larry and Pam Winters. They were the first couple that Larry and Pam ever sponsored.

    They got started in Amway by sharing the products and business opportunity with friends, family-members and anyone they met in day-to-day life. They utilized in-home meetings, hotel meetings and one-on-one presentations to find new customers and distributors. This is frequently referred to as “Old School MLM.”

    Since then, they’ve come a long way. Their downline now has thousands of Amway Distributors in it. They have many successful distributors in their downline to include Double Diamonds Joe and Marybeth Markiewicz, Alan and Michelle Leininger, and Doug and Amy Weir. There are also several Emeralds and many Platinum level distributors.

    The Bundy’s participate in the LTD line of sponsorship. LTD stands for Leadership Team Development. The purpose of LTD is to educate its Amway distributors about how to build an Amway business. To do so, they offer tapes, books, seminars and other business support materials.

    The Bundy’s are exceptional leaders with great people skills. They are the type of Amway sponsor you would want. If you have ever worked with them personally, I would love to hear from you. Please tell us when how you met them, when you worked with them, and what you learned from them. Just leave a comment to this post to share your thoughts.

    Merritt and Beth Wiese are Founders Diamonds in the Amway business. My parents met them back in the late 1970s or early 1980s, while we were living in Nebraska. I was probably only two or three years old at the time.

    My parents joined the Amway business and were part of the Wiese organization. To this day, my parents still speak very highly of the Wiese family. They said that they knew that Merritt and Beth Wiese would be Diamonds one day.

    Merritt and Beth Wiese are associated with the InterNET line of sponsorship. InterNET provides training and motivation for Amway Distributors in its line of sponsorship. This includes tapes, books, seminars and other business support materials.

    Merritt and Beth Wiese built their Amway business the old-fashioned way. They shared the products and business opportunity with friends and family members through in-home parties and one-on-one presentations.

    They are a true Amway success story. Anyone who can maintain a profitable MLM business for 30+ years is worth writing about. If you’ve ever worked with Merritt or Beth, I would love to hear your story. Just leave a comment to this post.

    The success stories of all of these people are inspiring, but I wonder: does this sort of success in MLM happen any more? (I mean, for those who stick to one line of business.) Or is the market just too saturated with so many distributors already. That said, I don’t think that I know any Amway distributors. I knew some about twenty-five years ago, but I do not know where they are. It seems like the company is still going strong. Is most of their business in Europe and Asia now?

      From what I read online, Amway still does about $3 billion in the US alone and another 10 billion or so overseas. I wouldn’t say the American market is too saturated. I used to be a rep myself, but haven’t been approached by anyone in Amway for more than five years now. The company’s biggest growth is still overseas. As far as success stories, most people I know of that are successful in any company have been with the company at least 10-15 years, if not longer.

        I have to agree after all: apparently the American market is not too saturated with Amway products or distributors. Though most of the people I know (my age) have heard of Amway, and we tend to think of it as one of the ultimate MLM businesses (right up there with Mary Kay and Tupperware – another one I haven’t heard from in a long time), I do not know a single distributor. I have not been approached by anyone regarding the products, much less the business opportunity in probably twenty years. Amazing.

          I doubt it is saturated. It’s just lost some of its sexiness to lots of people. I haven’t been approached by anyone in Amway for almost ten years now! Crazy.
