AMOs teachings are same or different?

My fellow blogger "insider" posted

So of 900,000 IBOships in Quixtar, there's something like 450,000 people attending seminars. 450,000!

That's a big number. That's a VERY big number.

And

When I point out to "critics" that perhaps their experience is not the most common experience, or perhaps not as widespread as they think, they'll often retort something along the lines of "I heard this taught at a seminar with 10,000 people!"

10,000 people is a big number, a VERY big number.

But it's only 5% of 200,000.

10,000 people sitting in a seminar being told something "wrong" or against Quixtar rules or whatever is a lot of people. But it's still less than 1% of all IBOships, and it's even only a tiny number of active IBOs who are attending seminars.

Context.

10,000 seems a BIG number - but put it in context, it's not. Don't get me wrong -it's still a lot of people, and if people are being taught or told "the wrong thing", well, one is too many! But for every IBO or former IBO out there, our experience, our context, is tiny compared to the reality of the Amway/Quixtar world. It's bigger than you think. WAAAYYY bigger than you think.


What he "missed" is, not all critics attended same seminar. If I attended one, Joe attended another, It's 20,000 now.

It takes 450,000 / 10,000 = 45 people, one from each seminar to compare notes and come to conclusion how similar or different teachings are. Assuming a major seminar has 10,000 attendees and there are total 450,000 IBOs attending seminars.

Great point, Imran. Of course, despite his intelligence (which seems to be waning, or maybe we are now used to him and can see through his BS), insider conveniently forgot to inlude that piece of deduction.

Not to mention, diamonds fly across country and to more than opne major function. If I recall correctly for example, the Duncans did various FEDs and other big functions. It's possible that those groups could have exceeded 50,000 IBOs.

My sponsor said he attended an FED in the Seattle Kingdome and it was sold out, over 50,000 IBOs in one function.

I heard BWW also had some big functions.
