Last week i had the opportunity to watch an Amway salesperson in the act of convincing my dad to become one. Two minutes into his speech, i walked out of the room. Man, the extent they go to persuade people to take up Amway reminded me of the Godmen (?), the so called godmen trying to convince foolish people that they are god. Listening to his rant, i’m sure the thought of “this seems to be a great business” would cross everybody’s mind. I mean, these people are that good and yes, the answer is NO, it is not as good as it sounds. I’m not against Amway or any product for that matter but i’m against people forcing the lesser known into a hole for their own benefit. Just think for a second why do they want you to take up a job when they are so good at it. (less competition right?) Well, the universal truth is that they get paid for convincing you and they get even more from the money you make of it.
The funny thing is, the guy had a story of why he took up this business. Looks like his kid was suffering from ashtma and no doctor could cure it. A pill from Amway representative made him normal and the doctors were in awe seeing the amazing power of amway. Is this even legal? for someone who hasn’t practised medicine or pharma to sell drugs, aren’t they supposed to be prescribed by a doctor? forgive my ignorance but i just don’t see it. Thank god, he didn’t convince the doctor to give up medicine and sell amway. And the worse was yet to come. :O he brought my caste (no idea why) into the picture and told we (looks like he belonged to the same..oh, now i know why) have good skill at this and we have the capability to sell products and make easy money and to convince people. I was wondering if i had the skill to convince him to get out of my house ( really, these guys get in your head ). First he was a doctor, now he is a psycologist..ah , give me a break! After an hours talk, my dad didn’t wanna take up amway as a career step ahead 😛 ( smart man, i know 🙂 ) So much for his convincing ability that runs in the caste. ( 😀 lol)
Now, i understand why Madan said he wouldn’t step into an apartment as it was infested with amway reps. They are coming to get you!!
