Become Your Own Boss And Change Your Life! #SomosAmway @AmwayUS #Giveaway #Ad

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and Amway.

    I have always wanted to be my own boss.  Ever since I was a child, I can remember being in awe of family members who owned their own businesses.  They always had the freedom to attend family events on a whim and generally seemed to be happy most of the time.  My Grandfather’s brother owned a motorcycle shop and dealership and I can recall all of the fun that us kids had pretend riding on all of the bikes in the showroom.  We never worried about getting in trouble because well, let’s face it, our Uncle was the boss and he would never get angry at us.

    As I became an adult, my career path took me in the direction of education.  Although I never abandoned my dreams of becoming a successful entrepreneur, I also had a desire to impart knowledge unto the youth so I put my business plans on hold while I pursued my degrees in education.  It wasn’t until I started blogging that I realized that my dreams of being my own boss were still attainable and that I would be able to bring them to fruition through my blog.

Becoming your own boss:

    Since becoming a successful blogger, I have had the pleasure of interacting with other determined entrepreneurs and business owners.  As a matter of fact, one of my old students, who is now in her twenties, owns a successful Amway independent business owner.  I often marvel at all of the experiences that she has traveling the world in order to share her story with other aspiring young people who want to take control of their financial destiny.  Additionally, she has access to the full line of exclusive Amway products and they really seem to be great quality at affordable prices for today’s budget savvy families.  Check out the Amway sales force:

Becoming an Amway Independent Business Owner:

    Individuals and couples who become Independent Business Owners (IBO) for Amway have the ability to create a family business that can be passed down from generation to generation.  Along with the perks that come from being your own boss, here are some of the other benefits of becoming an Amway IBO:

  • The ability to earn income that can supplement, replace, and even exceed your current income.
  • Being able to set your own flexible schedule and complete control over your business hours.
  • The opportunity to help others build successful businesses.
  • Attending educational and rewarding business conferences.
  • Experiencing the personal satisfaction at building a better financial future for you and your family.

What are you waiting for?

    In business, the old saying, “The early bird catches the worm,” couldn’t be more true.  If you are ready to start your own journey as an entrepreneur, you can start your own Amway business risk-free and more easily than you could ever imagine.  Take advantage of this unlimited earning opportunity and never worry about running out of vacation days again!  After all, who is going to fire you since you are the boss?!?!

Let’s Discuss:  What would be some of the benefits of becoming your own boss?

  1. I would love to be my own boss, but I don’t know if I am ambitious enough. LOL. I tried selling Avon for a while and it was a lot more work chasing people down than I realized.

  2. I actually started my own bookkeeping service when I couldn’t take working for a boss anymore–it was successful for 10 years–then things got tough all over and I took a job–but still retained some of my clients–I am now semi retired and still have those clients! I had a friend who sold Amway and I know she loved it-at the time she was a sahm and they needed to supplement their income-this company was a perfect fit for her.

  3. Terry My Journey With Candida says

    My Hubs and I were in business many years ago. If I were to start a business today, I would for sure have more money than I do now.

  4. A little extra money from a business would help me be a little more independent. It would be great to be your own boss.

  5. Denise Taylor-Dennis says

    Starting my own business would be helpful for making extra money to splurge with.

  6. In the past I’ve attended Amway parties and their products always seemed to be great.

  7. Monique Rizzo says

    It would give us something to do as a family!
    Thanks for the chance.

  8. JadeLouise Designs says

    Having my own business offers me more flexibility to still earn an income, but be able to be there for my kids when they need me! Plus I can support the husband while he returns to college for a new degree.

  9. kristimaloney says

    That is a very generous giveaway sponsored by Amway! I love the flexibility of being able to set my own hours while working at home.

  10. Karen Hewitt says

    Having my own home business means financial freedom, debt control and eventually having my husband working at home too

  11. Having your own business is a plus, but I could never sell Amway! I just dont have it in me.. My dad tried to see it when I was younger.. we had so many of the products! Great products, but I dont have the drive to do that!

  12. Daisy Tremorev says

    Starting a business would be great, especially now that my little boy is in school! I’d love to be a better contributor to our finances.

  13. anitabreeze says

    Network Marketing is certainly one great business model to earn passive and residual income. A year of hard work can result in years of earnings.

  14. tatertot374 says

    Having a business would be life changing as it would make our life very busy.

  15. tracydavis says

    Having my own business means financial freedom.

  16. Jennifer Williams says

    When I was growing up, I watched my father work really long hours and he passed away at a very young age from owning his own business. The only thing he ever wanted from me was if I was not a stay at home mom to NEVER work for myself. I do own two businesses but in different areas than what he did and the hours are much better. I love Amway, have been a fan for many years.

  17. Corinne Schmitt says

    My best friend from high school is an Amway business owner, along with several other members of her family. They love it and have been successful with it.

  18. Annie Wong says

    I have never heard of Amway before, but I know the hubs wants to eventually start his own business/practice so this would be something he can look into 🙂

  19. I’ve met lots of Amway business owners and they all seem to have a purpose and a great outlook on life. It reminds me of some of my favorite professional bloggers :).

  20. I think the benefits of being your own boss would be being able to set your own hours and work around family commitments.

  21. Marielle A. Lord says

    Being your own boss is what most if not all of us want.

  22. Airy Quiros says

    Def a dream, love the freedom to do what I want when I want!

  23. Being your own boss would be awesome, I’ve never heard of this though thanks for the infor

  24. Melanie Roberts says

    Ahhh being my own boss would be AWESOME… soo have to check this out.. perfect timing, thanks for sharing

  25. It is definitely a dream to be your own boss, but challenging too. Never was brave to start
    something like that besides my consulting stuff, but it is more like a job.

  26. BabsProjects says

    I would one day like to run my own business. Direct selling however is not for me. One has to be very aggressive to succeed in Amway. I don’t think I am capable of that.

  27. I’ve tried direct selling before and I’m not the greatest at it. lol.

  28. Amanda Hoffman says

    would bring in more money

  29. TouristMeetsTraveler says

    Sounds great, however, I have tried direct sales and have failed. I am just not great at it!

  30. Have heard of Amway before and actually have a few friends who are doing it. I don’t have the fortitude to do anything like this. I couldn’t even do Mary Kay. 🙂

  31. Being your own boss can be great,but sometimes that can also turn around and bite you, No direct sales for me,I couldn’t even do Avon..LOL

  32. I own two small businesses. They are quite a bit of work but I love being independent and working for myself. Amway makes really great products and I have heard people have success with selling it.

  33. Katherine Bartlett says

    I am my own boss and this is a great company!

  34. Chrishelle Ebner says

    I know a few people who have been quite successful with Amway. It is a doable way to start your own business. Good luck to you Katherine on your business venture.

  35. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says

    When I was home with the kids I entertained this idea. I like the make your own hours aspect.

  36. Courtney Pies says

    I love being my own boss with my blog. It’s come with so many great perks – like getting to meet other bloggers.

  37. I’ve been hearing about Amway a lot these days, maybe it’s time to take it a bit more seriously? Being my own boss would be amazing. I feel like I need something like this in my life because the military only pays so much and with a potential new baby making our total 4 I need something to help bring in some extra income.

  38. Starting a business would give me freedom to make my own decisions

  39. My husband and I did own our business, and the freedom of it was great! But it was also very stressful, especially in Ireland, where employees have such strong rights and privileges that it was extremely difficult to fire anybody who wasn’t doing their job. We closed the business last year and moved to the States. Owning a business now would change my life again in terms of the huge headache it can be!

  40. I work a very boring day job that I’ve kind of hit a dead end in. Starting my own business would just make my life happier, change up things for me, give me more drive.

  41. twinkies25 says

    Having my own business would change my life because I will feel useful. I will be able to contribute to pay our family bills and keep busy in something I would love to do.

  42. tinareynolds says

    It would allow extra income taking a lot of stress of my husband and I while giving me more family time and freedom

  43. I love working for myself. Nothing better!

  44. Brittney House says

    I can make my own hours and spend time with my family or pursing other hobbies.

  45. I’m busy enough without another business.

    Thanks for the contest.

  46. Karrie Millheim says

    it would help me be my own person. Come out of my shell and let me work my own hours

  47. Maybe I would not miss as many of my son’s ball games. Thankyou

  48. susansmoaks says

    starting a business would change my life because i would be able to stay at home and be the wife and mother that i have always dreamed of becoming. my husband and i know that starting our own business will be hard work but we feel that it’s worth it.

  49. Starting my own business would give me extra money and freedom to make my own schedule.

  50. natali alvarez jaimes says

    el iniciar un nuevo negocio me ayudaria a subirme el animo ha tratar de
    ser mas positiva pues aveces los pensamientos negativos me invaden, como
    el tipico, soy una inutil, solo sirvo para ama de casa y sin mi marido
    no podria sobrevivir, y ese tipo de cosas que aveces pensamos las
    personas que no nos desenvolvemos laboralmente por alguna razon, yo en
    mi caso no puedo salir a trabajar ya que tengo una baby pequeña y aqui
    donde vivimos no conocemos absolutamente a nadie que nos pueda cuidar
    ala nena y dejarla con desconocidos definitivamente no es una opcion
    para nosotros, yo me siento mal, que hay veces que mi esposo se le
    dificulta cubrir algunos pagos, pero no puedo hacer nada por que no
    genero ingresos, como dice un dicho, NO LE DOY PERO TAMPOCO LE QUITO,
    trato de limitarme en las cosas en que gasto dinero, aveces mi nena
    quiere algo y no puedo comprarselo porque el dinero que traigo no es
    mio, ya esta destinado para algo en especifico, yo quisiera empezar un
    nuevo negocio para superarme a mi misma, subirme el animo, el
    autoestima y al mismo tiempo ayudar en casa con los gastos o ayudar a
    mi familia en mexico, tambien seria bueno para conocer gente en esta
    ciudad ya que no tengo amigos aqui, gracias por la oportunidad.

  51. Allison Downes says

    Starting my own business would get me more money in my pocket, I could work my own hours, and have more time to do things. Thank you for the chance to win this!
