What would you do if your work allowed you complete flexibility to follow your passions, dreams and goals while still paying your bills?
Go on tour with a band? Go back to school for that college degree? Stay home with your children instead of paying for childcare? Travel?
On a more basic level, what if you could schedule doctor’s appointments without fear of leaving work, or never worry about missing your child’s tee-ball game or high school musical?
Most workers want flexibility
A desire for that kind of flexibility is prevalent in today’s workforce, according to FlexJobs’ 2017 annual survey. Along with salary, respondents put work-life balance, flexible schedule and the ability to telecommute at the top of the list of “most important factors” when evaluating a potential new job.
That’s the kind of flexibility that comes with an Amway business. When you are an Amway Independent Business Owner, you are your own boss, setting your own schedule and working at your own pace.
‘Customize’ your life
“My personal dream was to be able to work on my time, to customize my life,” said Anthony Melillo, who fits his love of music easily into his life as an Amway Independent Business Owner. “I feel like the Amway opportunity is different. It molds to you, depending on what you want out of the business.”
For Omar Fabel, the Amway opportunity allowed him to launch his business while still working full-time. When he began making more working part-time at Amway than at his full-time job, he quit and become a full-time business owner.
Flexibility opens up options
“One of the best things about Amway is that you can build a business anywhere you are,” Omar said. “Amway gave me the option to be more flexible and be completely in control of my life.”

The average monthly Gross Income for “active” IBOs was USD $207 (in the U.S.)/CAD $186 (in Canada).
Approximately 48% of IBOs in the U.S., and 52% of IBOs in Canada, were “active.”
IBOs were considered “active” in months in 2016 when they attempted to make a retail sale, or presented the Amway IBO Compensation Plan, or received bonus money, or attended an Amway or IBO meeting. If someone sustained that level of activity every month for a whole year, their annualized Gross Income would be $2,484 (U.S.)/$2,232 (Canada). Of course, not every IBO chooses to be active every month. “Gross Income” means the amount received from retail sales, minus the cost of goods sold, plus monthly bonuses and cash incentives. It excludes all annual bonuses and cash incentives, and all non-cash awards, which may be significant. There may also be significant business expenses, mostly discretionary, that may be greater in relation to income in the first years of operation. For the purposes of the calculation in Canada, individuals who were IBOs for less than the entire year in 2016 were excluded.
Before registering as an Independent Business Owner (IBO) powered by Amway, you should read and understand the AMWAY™ Business Overview Brochure, which contains important information for those interested in becoming IBOs.
