AUS: The Tools Scam
amway.robinlionheart.com, 23 Feb 2015 [cached]
A frequent topic of debate regarding Amway are the "tools"--tapes, books and rallies--that Dexter Yager, Bill Britt and leaders of other Amway distributor groups move through their downlines.
...
Amway distributors generally claim that 1) neither Britt, Yager, nor anyone else makes any significant amount of money from the sale of these tools, or 2) that they do make a lot of money from the sale of tools, but that the tools are absolutely necessary to achieve success in Amway.
...
Dexter Yager, for example, from Rome, N.Y., is a distributor whose "downliners"--distributors downstream, who generate commissions for him--account for perhaps a third of Amway's direct-sales volume. He guesses his non-Amway tape-book-rally business brings two-thirds of his annual income--roughly $1.5 million.

* According to a recent three-part article on Yager in the Charlotte Observer, things don't seem to have changed much since the Detroit Free Press article.

The hub of Dexter Yager's worldwide empire is a bustling factory on South Boulevard.
...
The $35 million-a-year spin- off of Yager's Amway business generates consistent profits and persistent problems.
Yager's network of 1 million distributors -- Amway's largest -- provides a ready-made market for the Yager motivation sideline. Yager says his "support system" strengthens Amway sales, but ex- distributors argue that its central focus is selling to the sales force.
...
Dexter Yager said his Amway and Internet businesses give him an income of "several million" a year. He said he makes more from Amway sales than Internet profits, but stays too busy to track his income.
Yager calls Internet "a very successful venture."
...
"It sounds like Mr. Yager has made a lot and he's forgetting these people who are in need of extra money to make ends meet."
...
Five former distributors sued Yager, his companies, a key operative, and the Amway Corp. last year, contending that they were misled about the costs, profitability, and chances of succeeding in Amway.

"I have never coerced anybody to buy anything that I made money on," said Dexter Yager.
TAPES HELPED, YAGER SAYS
The 55-year-old multimillionaire said he became interested in motivation because he needed a boost when he first began selling Amway 31 years ago. He said he experienced an initial flurry of business before he hit several years of uneven results.
"My first three years in the business I never read a positive-thinking book. I never listened to a tape," he said.
"I was dealing with big dreams one day and discouragement the next," he said. "And I didn't know how to get it together."
Yager said it helped him to read positive-thinking books. In the 1970s, he began selling them to his network. Then he began writing his own books -- he's produced 12 -- and recording his speeches.
In 1980, he and his family formed a corporation called Freedom Distributing. It became Internet Services Corp. in 1989 and by that time, three of Yager's seven children -- Doyle, Jeff and Steve -- were running it.

"I think Dexter had the right idea with the communications system," he said.

There are some (but not all) of my reasons for believing that Bill Britt, Dexter Yager, and other Amway high rollers are making most of their money selling motivational tools rather than Amway products.

Pearls and Emeralds dream of going Diamond, Dexter Yager is a 24-carat celebrity.
From Charlotte he sits atop half of Amway's global sales network of 2 million people. His distributors sold $2 billion worth of soap, cosmetics and other items last year -- an output greater than the gross national products of 39 nations.
...
Despite his renown within Amway, Yager remains little-known in Charlotte. But his influence is growing.
Last year he helped Republican -- and Amway distributor -- Sue Myrick raise about $200,000 from distributors, the Yager family and employees, almost a third of all she got in winning her U.S. House seat. His network also raised money for other conservatives across the county.
And growing real estate holdings make his family one of Mecklenburg County's largest noncommercial property owners and apartment landlords.

To distributors hoping to move up the sales ranks to Ruby, Pearl, Emerald and Diamond, Yager nurtures the relationship with advice on everything from spiritual needs to sex.
