Dean Kosage Leaves WWDB
Update January 3, 2012: Dean Kosage, or at least someone connected to Dean, wants to take this blog page… down by any means necessary.
It’s official. Dean Kosage has left WWDB1 to join up with another former WWDB Diamond Brad Wolgamott.
They are forming their own System called VSix that will provide teaching and training to Amway distributors. Kosage appears to have his own System called Freestyle and Wolgamott has his own called VSix. They are collaborating together, however, with their two respective Systems.
Many moons ago, I wrote a post wondering if Dean would be leaving Amway and WWDB to join up with MonaVie. Turns out he left WWDB, but not Amway, at least not yet. With his own System, he’s poised to grab more of the System profits than ever before. In addition, this paves the way for an easier break from Amway in the future (should he decide to jump ship) as he doesn’t have to convince the WWDB board to follow him.
Distributors downline from Kosage are now faced with a decision: do I follow my leader or the WWDB organization? By building up a his own cult of personality over the years, Kosage hopes that his downline join him in his new System venture.
I’m eager to hear the spin from both sides regarding his departure. Will the WWDB leaders, who have already removed Kosage from the WWDB web site, badmouth him on the way out? Will Kosage shower WWDB with praise now that he’s on his own? Let the spin games begin!
Update: Here’s the voicemail regarding Dean’s “termination” from WWDB (link no longer works)2.
Update #2: I guess Dean and Brad Duncan won’t be driving in Brad’s Porsche anytime in the near future. The video below from Dean’s blog. They are heading to the River House, which is still for sale (price reduced!) at $17 million dollars.
Site visitors! What do you think of Dean’s departure from WWDB? Is it a good thing for both parties? Good for WWDB only? Good for Dean? Good for nobody? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below!
