Best Practices for November - Embracing Differences

This month's Best Practice message is on embracing differences. As you've discovered, the IBOAI Compensation Plan powered by Amway NA offers the best business opportunity available anywhere ... and is open to anyone around the world. We are attracting new IBOs from diverse backgrounds. Many of them are younger and from different races, religions and nationalities. Our Best Practice policies make it clear that acceptance of others is a crucial part of our business.

Regardless of our background, where we live or our political affiliation ... this business can help each of us achieve our goals and dreams. And just as we committed to supporting people who want to build their own businesses, we are also committed to acceptance. There is room for everyone in this business regardless of beliefs, viewpoints or opinions. It's part of what makes our business strong and successful.

It's important to be mindful of this during business meetings, where there is a tendency to share personal beliefs with others from the stage. While it is fine to talk about how important our beliefs are in our own lives and how they've helped us build our businesses, it is not acceptable to say that others need to believe the same thing.

The one common belief that team members should share in is the power of this opportunity and a commitment to building our businesses in the right way. Our differences can provide a broad and strong foundation for growing the business!

Keep leading the way ... we're very proud of you and your commitment to building a large, balanced and profitable business!
