All-In Gold Rush to XS

July 28, 2008

All-In Gold Rush to XS at Amway Global

I recently learned of a new drink called All In Energy. The owner of the company is none other than WWDB Triple Diamond Greg Duncan. But wait, there’s more! Duncan is also part-owner of XS, which just happens to be the exclusive energy drink of Quixtar.

I’m not here to debate whether or not Duncan is violating any form of non-compete clause he made have signed as part of being an IBO with Amway Global. I’ll leave that debate to the lawyers. Rather, I’d like to point out a connection the Amway business opportunity has with the California Gold Rush in the mid 1800s.

While there were a number of people who struck it rich discovering gold, the vast majority of people who came to California during the time left or died without nary finding a single nugget.

You see, there was more money to be made during the Gold Rush, yet it wasn’t in gold. Some savvy business people struck it rich by providing goods and services to the gold propsectors! Most everyone knows the story of Levi Strauss, who outfitted miners with durable denim pants, but there are countless other opportunistic people who found fame and fortune selling proverbial “stuff” to the anxious forty-niners.

Is there still gold to be found building an Amway Global business? I’m sure, like in California today, there’s some amount of gold (or diamonds) yet to be discovered. Realistically, however, you may have a better chance of creating and selling a product that IBOs will buy than of building a Diamondship where you live.

To current IBOs, look around you and ask who’s making more money off of you and your fellow IBO prospectors? More often than not, it’s the people selling you stuff you need to build (Amway) and fuel (System) your business.

Whether you like it or not, people like Greg Duncan are triple-dipping! He’s selling you tapes, books, and functions (WWDB System), selling you products that offer PV and BV (XS Energy Drinks), and selling products to your friends who aren’t interested in the business (All In Energy Drinks). I’m not ready to call him the Levi Strauss of the Amway Global world, but he does seem to be making the most of this opportunity.

What side of the Amway Global Gold Rush are you on?

    Regarding the legality of the situation, you don’t need the lawyers to chime in. All you have to do is read the rules and apply a little common sense. The rules state you can’t involved in a competing NETWORKING venture, which “All In” clearly is not. Then, you have to use some common sense and realize Quixtar would see what is going on and take appropriate action. They have. None. Then, think about the idea of working at Sears, or any other of thousands of companies. If what Greg was doing was wrong, there would be far fewer people who could participate in Quixtar. For example, if these rules had been in place and (mis)interpreted when Dexter Yager joined, he couldn’t have joined, then the tool scam may never have started. Hey, I can always dream! By the way, I placed a similar comment on Ty’s site, but he didn’t post it. He likes to slam others, but won’t post comments returning fire. What a woosie.

    The gold rush analogy falls apart pretty quickly. Those providing services for the gold miners didn’t generally:

    1. Rip them off
    2. Tell them they were their “business partners” and “teammates” while ripping them off
    3. Tell them they would help them build their business while ripping them off
    4. Tell them their success came from gold mining while it really came from their services.

    It’s just a poor analogy.

    I’m pretty sure Ty didn’t like the part that copied some of Ty’s earlier response to ibofb:

    Dude, I’m very curious to know who you are and what you did with the logical Ty (never mind, Ty has never been considered logical).

    This is an example of the reason I use the term “ban” when used on the forums/blogs. You can only “ban” someone from posting on your own site, but there are unlimited other places you can post what you want.
