"Quixtar is Amway... turbo-charged" Diamond Distributor - Bill Hawkins - Tape: "Prospecting for the 21st Century" RP863

"Who is going to succeed in this? From 1959 to 1985 when Amway was a door to door deal. The people who succeeded were the people who built friendships, who built a team, who built a sense of camaraderie. When it was door to door, those were the things that worked. In 1985 to the present. Who build this business? People who built relationships. It's the people who built a team, who created a sense of camaraderie. So what is Quixtar going to be? Quixtar...it's the same thing" Emerald Distributor-Todd Rainsberger-Tape: "Why Quixtar?"

"I've got to tell you some Amway distributors are doing the same stupid thing they did here (addition of catalog business), I saw them do here (addition of services business), I see them doing this right here right now (Quixtar). They have a Quixtar businss. They are in Quixtar. They are doing everything they can to hide the fact they have a foundation of Amway 2000. We (WWDB) are not going to make that mistake."

 "This is not Amway on line. This is truly a different business model" John Parker-Amway Corporation-"Unveiling your future" PN2103


Why did they make Quixtar versus calling it Amway Online and keeping it in Amway?

  1. The Amway name was old and tarnished. Jay Leno was even making jokes about Amway distributors on TV.
  2. A tremendous portion of the value in any company is in its distribution system and network. Without the distributors, Amway is worthless. Since Rich and Jay are getting on in age, any estate taxes on the Amway business will be staggering. Quixtar is owned by the children of Rich and Jay. So in effect, a huge portion of the value of the Amway family business has been transferred to the children free of any estate taxes. Since the distributors via their own free will have transferred to Quixtar there is no taxable transaction. This is a tremendous coup and has saved the family millions in estate taxes!
