A Message from the Chairman of the IBOAI Board of Directors
January 21, 2008

To All IBOs:

The IBOAI was certainly busy last year. 2007 Chairman Jim Janz did an outstanding job negotiating through a myriad of issues and deserves all of our respect. While I don’t feel I can replace Jim, my goal is to maintain the integrity that he brought in 2007. We have a historic opportunity ahead of us, and the "spirit of partnership" between the Field and Quixtar is alive and well.

Last year the Board was able to assist in the creation of the largest compensation increase in the history of this business, and we now have the best compensation plan in this industry. Your 2007 Board worked closely with Quixtar as they introduced Simply Nutrilite (tm) and Artistry® essentials. We established LOS and LOA conference calls to keep the leadership informed on a variety of issues. Last, but certainly not least, your Board began the process of transformation with Quixtar and strives to keep the Field advised of where it stands at all times. None of this would have been possible without the relationship between the Field, the Corporation, and the Founding Families.

As we look to 2008:

Your Board is working with Quixtar to establish a structured communication protocol with the Field to improve understanding on various issues during transformation.
We will work with the Corporation to help insure that accreditation is a win/win for everyone.
Your Board is actively engaged with Quixtar to help all IBOs during their crucial first 90 to 120 days in this business.
Even though the new QBI is only a few months old, we are already examining this program with Quixtar to see if it can be improved. Our goal is that no IBO who is willing to work or is performing will be left behind.
We will continue to provide input on: international businesses; compensation; awards and recognition; products to support your businesses; issues such as back orders; and, most importantly, making the relationship between the company’s owners, North American team, and the Field the best it has ever been.
A quick reminder; the IBOAI Board and staff work for all IBOs in the Field. We will do our very best to make sure you hear from us regularly. We will keep the lines of communication open with the various LOS and LOA leaders. The fantastic IBOAI staff is always available to assist in any way they can.

When Quixtar announced the upcoming name change in June 2007, they titled the announcement: Brand New Day. I believe it accurately describes where we are going. This transformed new business model is not "our Daddy’s Oldsmobile." We are not going back to Amway. We are moving forward to "Amway Global," a business model that will make the world sit up and take notice. Together we will transform this business, partner with the Corporation with even greater enthusiasm, and establish a template for decades to come!

Working together, the best is yet to come,

Bill Hawkins
2008 Chairman
IBOAI Board of Directors

sounds to me like 2/10/2008 is getting close and they are worried about their reputation .....

Damage control boys, the ship has a leak and the main hull is going to be burst on 2/10/2008 ........

They may have the best thing for the next 20 days but it still won't be enough ......... they don't have integrity to go along with all the hype they are putting out.

Interesting that he's chose the Oldsmobile example to compare to ...

So, the new Amway is not "your daddy's Amway, eh?

If memory serves, when they tried to put a new wig, skirt & lipstick on the Olds pig, not only did the old depart, but "the new Olds" is also no more. Happened pretty quickly too from what I recall.

Pardon me, Bill - but I think that may be your Freudian slip showing!

This is just a bit rich. What a bunch of plaid coat wearing morons. No mention whatsoever of reality, or HOW they are going to make this so great.

Also didn't really say HOW there is more money in the plan.

More rhetoric.

".....a business model that will make the world sit up and take notice. "

They already took notice there Bill.

Thant's why you guys are trying to make it look like you give a crap about everyone.

I hope they (Quixam, whatever they are today) "get it". We're going to need the competition, otherwise we may run into anti-trust difficulties. And I don't think the US courts will care about businesses in Malaysia when looking at competitive factors in the world's largest economy.
