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.

Dexter Yager, Amway's Network Marketing Genius Dexter Yager, Amway's Network Marketing Genius Dexter Yager's is a true rags to riches success story. Right now, he is not only one of the most successful people in network marketing, but perhaps the one who has given his parent company, Amway, one of the best track records in the industry. Yager started his career in the small town of Rome, New York, as a beer salesman. Most of the folks in that town were broke, lived paycheck to paycheck, and had no hope of ever getting out of their daily rut at the local mill. Yager says of those early days, "We didn't know anybody who had big dreams, or at least, talked about them." When he would talk about his dreams for the future, his friends would ridicule him. Yager had little education, no money, and didn't know a thing about business. They would tell him, "Who do you think you are? You're never going to to make it." Dexter said this was one of the toughest obstacles he ever had to face. "The fear of becoming a failure in front of your family and friends," he says, "is a negative force that outweighs people's concerns about their own family's future." The second adversity Yager had to overcome was the fact that he stuttered so badly it took him 4 hours to give a normal 2 hour presentation. It would have been easy to just give up. But neither one of these obstacles prevented Yager from whole-heartedly going after the goals he had set. But it wasn't easy. Just starting out, he was still working his day job. Then at night, Yager would go out making presentations, often arriving back home very late. This was an added burden on his wife, who was trying to raise 7 small children at the time and was used to a husband who came home every night after work. Dexter Yager first set a small goal for himself. When he met that goal, a larger one was set. After every goal was met, he would keep setting bigger and bigger goals. He believes, "The most important thing in this business is to have a big dream and keep it in front of you every day." Another key to his success was that Yager was always reading positive material, or listening to motivational tapes. Keeping his mind in a positive mode, allowed him to eventually develop a tremendous training system that helped Dexter immensely to build perhaps the largest downline in MLM history.
