Tex's Quixtar Blog Name Transition

At Tex's request and in keeping with the new transition of Quixtar North America becoming part of Amway Global in 2009; we are changing our name to keep up with the times.

Tex's Quixtar Blog will now be Tex's Quixtar/Amway Global Blog. The website address will remain the same.

Now You Know.

Thanks, Dave. Wouldn't it help to change the website address for search purposes?

David Robison said...

Can't change the website address without transferring the entire blog to a new address.

Search Results are tied to the text associated with the link, so it shouldn't matter much.

Remember that Qblog was tied to the url webraw.com/quixtar and his search results were awesome

Okay, thanks.

I have the feedback from Amway UK regarding what the court ruling means:

"In regards to BSM and the court ruling the answer is simple no BSM (Books,tapes etc ) may be sold in the UK / ROI. This ruling has been in place since May 2007 when the initial moratorium on the UK business came into place. Since the judgment this has continued as the Judgement from Justice Norris and we have maintained this policy."

and:

"In regards to your question we do not have in place any material to date that Amway provide , we currently have no support material available to any ABOs in the UK/ROI market and this looks to run in this vain for the foreseeable future."

Regarding meetings:

"In regards to the UK /ROI meeting policy we have a standard policy in place and the requirement is to contact our contract and Administration team in order to get permission to run a meeting. We currently have a policy in place and no Major functions are in place unless they are run by the Amway Corporation.

I have attached the meeting policy requirement for you to read through.

Amway UK & RoI Meeting Policy

This update is to define a policy to regulate the presentation of Amway UK & RoI to the general public, prospects and ABOs through the holding of regular meetings. This policy applies only to meetings organised outside of ABOs homes. Meetings may be organised in ABOs homes as often as desired and do not need authorisation from Amway.

Summary

1. Amway Opportunity Meeting - weekly, for prospects and New ABOs
2. Amway Success Meeting - monthly for all ABOs
3. Amway Expo Meeting - annually for all ABOs An updated meeting schedule regarding locations will be issued shortly to coincide with the commencement of sponsoring.

Amway Opportunity Meeting - Purpose

1. Introduce prospects to the Amway Business opportunity.
2. To motivate and provide tips on how to start and give basic product knowledge.
3. Recognise existing ABOs for retailing success
4. Experience the Amway personal touch

Amway Success Meeting - Purpose

1. Motivate and instruct ABOs to find customers, sell products, build their group.
2. Rolling 12 month curriculum of business skills.
3. Recognise existing ABOs for retailing success and group success.
4. Experience the Amway Personal Touch

Amway Expo – Purpose

1. Motivate and instruct ABOs to continue working for their goals, build groups and continue to be customer focused.
2. Recognise existing ABOs for retailing success, group success and leadership success.
3. Experience the Amway personal touch.

ABO Organised Open Meetings

1. Introduce prospects to the Amway business Opportunity.
2. Motivate and provide tips on how to start and give basic product knowledge.
3. Recognise existing ABOs for retailing success

• Participants - Maximum number of participants - 150
• All costs to be borne by leaders running the meeting. [editorial comment - I wonder how a "leader" is defined by the LCK's, any IBO with a pulse?]
• Amway branding must be visible at all ABO organised meetings.

All meetings held outside of ABOs homes need to be authorised by Tracy Clark in the Contract Administration & Compliance department - tracy_clark@amway.com

Amway staff may at any time attend these meetings without ABO’s prior knowledge. A more in depth explanation of the requirements will be available to you via the Contract Administration & Compliance department."

As a whole, this is VERY good news, and we need similar policies in place in the U.S.

Is it any wonder why BWW left, why Dornan got into hot water with Amway last year, and why other UK Diamonds were booted? Not to me, the tool scam is no longer an issue in the UK, and a lot of the rats have jumped overboard.

Bitchett said on ibofb's site:

Tex had every opportunity to trash-talk in the flesh in Prague. Instead, he chose to be two-faced. ---- I mentioned Bitchett's LCK upline when I first met her, and she didn't push back, so why should I make a big deal out of something that was obvious years prior to the Prague trip?

Polite and easy-going, with a great smile and laugh, in person. ---- If she understood who I really am, and what I really believed in, she wouldn't find this out of character. At all.
and
abusive, disrespectful, no-sense-of-humor, a jerk, online. ---- Only to those who are FIRST abusive, disrespectful, no-sense-of-humor, a jerk, to me.

I have more respect for my "enemies" that are clear about their dislike of me, than I do for people who hug me in one moment and then punch me in another (online or offline). ---- I won't make that "mistake" again, Bitchett. Promise. Cross my heart and hope you die.

Below is the questionnaire I received from A/Q. Most of it was multiple choice, and any written answers I provided are bounded by 2 dashes (--). I think it was good they provided a means to provide feedback, but did not like the statement they would not contact me.

Dave,

According to these guys, it does matter that Amway is in the name:

If you start a new blog, with a link to this "old" one, and add the 9 steps of truth, I'll add any other content to it. Thanks.

Here's another "name transition."

We need to work on getting the tool scam shut down faster, so all the remaining LCK's can pass on knowing their true legacy.
