Do people at the top of Amway make all the money?

No, this is a common misperception in direct selling and Amway, in particular. It is incorrect that only the people who started in Amway earlier or who are “at the top” of the business make all of the money.

It’s very possible for an individual Amway Business Owner to make more money than the person who introduced them to the business, even if that person has been with Amway for a decade or more. There’s no benefit for those who “joined Amway early.”

Some Amway Business Owners make much more money than others, but it’s because they are responsible for not only selling products themselves, but also for organizing, supporting, and leading larger sales groups of Amway Business Owners that sell significant amounts of products. At this stage, they are experienced and skilled business leaders working diligently in their business.
