If Diamond Run Fails, Who’s To Blame?
The Diamond Run is an R3Global promotion designed “to break 2000 new Diamonds and 200 Black Diamonds in the next 2-3 years.” Started in 2009, it runs until the end of 2012. Distributors pay a “small registration fee” that grants them “access to the influence and innovation of R3Global accountability.” Basically, it’s more paper pamphlets along with the ability to update your upline about your progress through email.
Who’s to blame if the Diamond Run fails to achieve its goals? Is it the distributors’ fault for not “doing the work” and following the plan set out by their upline? Or, is it the fault of the leaders for creating a “guaranteed” system for going Diamond in 200 days or less that doesn’t work in reality?
Ten years ago, similar statements were made by the certain Amway leaders around the launch of Quixtar. I remember bold claims about the business reaching $100 billion in 2-5 years. Will history repeat itself with the Diamond Run? Time will tell!
