Congratulations to Andrea a Ivan Kartáčovci. Portraits of a consistent and positive work ethic combined with persistence… as Mitch Sala would say, “It’s predictable”.
“The Amway business was introduced to us as a young family, soon after high school. With two little children, a small rented apartment and joint income of about $100 per month. We knew that our life certainly could not stay this way. We longed to work together, but we wanted a business and not just work, so that we could organize our time to working hours that suited our needs. We wanted to have the option to provide for our (now three) children so that they could pursue their talents and not just their needs.
The Emerald level for us means not only personal success. This shows that the Amway business works regardless of the economic situation of the country and no matter how long the company Amway has been in the market. Today we know that employed in our original professions as a teacher and traffic engineer, we would not have such a family life as through Amway business.”

Include the Amagram address of your local Amway spotlight and I’ll give a shout out just like this one. How’s that for full service?
Ka-boom… the numbers are in – Amway rocked another year! I’d like to think that much of their success in 2012 was due to my diligent efforts … and of course the hard work of tens of thousands of Network TwentyOne affiliated Amway Business Owners around the World. Way to go people … you are part of something very successful and growing!
What a great idea… gather up 1,000 or so Russian Platinums and above, travel to a resort town on the Turkish coast and spend a week learning, celebrating and enjoying the rewards of a strong and profitable Amway business with successful Network TwentyOne leaders from around the world. Oh, and the fireworks were very cool…
“It was 2008 year when Russian Platinum ABOs and above went to Turkey to have a beautiful Go Diamond seminar. After that great experience they decided to repeat their journey and on 7th October 2012 Russian Platinum ABOs invaded Kemer, Turkey and conquered this beautiful place as Network 21 family!
There were unbelievable 7 days of rest and learning at the same time! The Hotel “Limra Limak Resort” was a paradise for everybody!
We had a very intensive seminar program full of amazing stories, experience sharing and teaching. Hans Nusshold attracted all audiences with his mature and humble posture at the stage, all attendees listened his stories and teachings in a big attention. Katalina Lovas and Peter Mercz is a beautiful and friendly couple, they demonstrated a unique personal example, shared their experience, teach tolerance, determination and utter commitment to Network 21 training and Amway business.
Everybody was amazed by delightful Sean’s speeches! He told his touching success story, shared experience, rode the bike on stage trying to ride over “barries and obstacles” on his way even when one of them was Network 21 Russian country manager! He got to know how brave Russian women are!
Dream night passed as a single breath. We had a record number of recognitions here, beginning from new Platinum ABO and ending with one of the highest pins as Founder Executive Diamonds! Reception for New Qualifications made it possible for all new achievers to make pictures with their uplines and guest speaker. And the cherry on top was the amazing firework accompanied by soundtrack from Pirates of the Caribbean, pointing out once again that Russian Leaders are truly most courageous and adventurous people!
Our warmest congratulations and wishes for further success and growth!
We are grateful to all Leaders, guests of the seminars for their work. We are looking forward to meet you all at Go Diamond seminar next time!”
Very exciting iReport from the Network TwentyOne Hungarian Events team … sounds like there were a lot of moving parts to this one with so many languages and videos flying all over the place from one country to another. Hats off (which we are all wearing in the Autumn as nature starts to go to sleep ) for the great job gang!
In autumn nature starts to go to sleep until new life begins in spring but this is not valid to the nature of Network TwentyOne! It was proven in lot of countries among others in Debrecen, Hungary. We showed the world that no matter what season we have, Network TwentyOne is alive and wakes up whoever is attending a Network TwentyOne function. At the Central European Regional Conference the venue was totally packed with attendees from Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia, Slovenia, Romania and Hungary. There were four Weekend Seminars at the same time, Baltic WES, German WES, Italian WES and our event. On Friday each country had sent a message to the other countries, on Saturday and Sunday morning it was shown for the audience (n21guy comments: click here to see that post and video). These messages showed that Network TwentyOne is an international system and how successfully it works in Europe, too. We had 5 recognitions on Saturday evening: 1 Emerald, Valentina Aftenii from Romania, 1 Founders Emerald, Costel & Desy Ciobanu from Romania, 1 Diamond, Tibor & Piroska Torma from Hungary and 1 Founder Diamond, Elena & Dragos Floroiu from Romania, and 1 Founder Executive Diamond, Irénke Némethné from Hungary. The Diamond. On Sunday we had a special recognition; new Founder Double Diamonds, Alois & Sissy Petra Szuchar from Austria had recognition in Germany that was made visible in Hungary on video messages. A wonderful moment was when Hans and Eva Nusshold appeared on the screens and sent special messages to the high pin recognized leaders. We had a fantastic Crown Ambassador Guest speaker from Australia, Peter Cox. With his dynamic personality, he gave unforgettable moments to the audience. He was very enthusiastic and blew up the venue. On Sunday Peter Cox closed the Seminar with an uplifting speech, and that added wings to the ABOs and proved that Network TwentyOne never sleeps!
Anyone think the new Baltic Republics of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania are slightly fired up to have their first Weekend Seminar and join the global family or Network TwentyOne affiliated Amway business owners? Impressive, inspirational and just cool… would have loved to hit that late night dancing Saturday night as I’ve been known to “bust a move” from time to time…
“WOW…It was The First WES in Baltic Republics and we almost put the house on fire!!!
Fantastic speakers from all over the Europe: Yulia and Evgeny Zoteev, Mats Holmberg, Else Bang, Susanna Hintikainen, Vyacheslav Petkevich and the most important guests: Hans and Eva Nusshold and last but not least, Leszek Krecielewski – Amway’s Eastern European Sales Director.
Exciting recognition that included the highest recognition in Baltic Republics, the first Diamonds from Estonia… Toivo and Anne Rande.
Amazing atmosphere and design. Network TwentyOne’s technicians showed high level of professionalism, designing venue the way that all audience could feel amazing. Additionally, there was a concert with a local star on Saturday evening, that made people dance long after midnight.
And finally a truly inspirational messages from Jim Dornan to local leaders what gave them new motivation. To quote from Jim’s video:
“… and this is just the beginning of a long future, I believe, of successes and celebrations as you share with the people of the Baltics how great this business can be in their life, and how determined you are to lead by example, with your story and your courage and the principles that you have learned form your exposure, perhaps on CDs or from your upline or by attending seminars ….
… It is time now to have a great harvest locally and for you to turn around and reach out to other parts of Europe where the Amway opportunity remains available to you as well.”
WORLD! BE READY, BALTIC LEADERS HERE THEY COME!!!”
iReports to come I’m sure but I could not resist sharing my latest accomplishment… I managed to hack a communications satellite and capture these video transmissions being sent from one Network TwentyOne Weekend Seminar to another in Europe as they all competed for the title of “Most Fired Up” crowd.
In every country and language, the concepts of “Achievement”, “Opportunity” and “Reward” translate clearly… add to this the opportunity provided by the Amway business model and the the support of Network TwentyOne and amazing things are predictable!
PS. OK so maybe I did not actually hack a satellite … sounded pretty cool though huh?
First there was the Yalta Conference in 1945… then came Go Diamond Ukraine in Yalta in 2012. You be the judge which one was more exciting, enjoyable and informative! Fireworks shot off to the music of Olivia Newton John – Whoooaaa, how did I miss that!
“What could be more beautiful than the time spent on the seaside? … Only the time spent on the seaside in one of the most amazing cities of Ukraine with the best leaders of Network TwentyOne … Cecilia Karas, Elena Floroiu, Marek and Isabela Bujwicky, Igor and Valeria Haratin, Taras and Irina Demkura, Vera Arkhipova & Alexey Mautanov, Robert Angkassa and last but not least… Hans and Eva Nusshold!
And it’s all connected with one of the most important events of the year 2012 – Go Diamond in Yalta! We are very grateful to our Guests Speakers Crown Robert Angkassa (Indonesia) and Crown Ambassador Hans & Eva Nusshold (Austria) for great contribution to the success and the positive outcome of the event. Your experience and wisdom are truly a core value of these meetings!
A rich program, time for relaxation and evening promenade on the seafront of Yalta, Emerald and Diamond meetings, time for counseling and great recognitions, special video message from Jim Dornan…we had it all!
The pride of the program were new achievers: new Silvers and above, Emeralds & Founders Emeralds, New Diamond Vladimir and Marianna Demihiny, New Diamond Shtogrin Igor and Natalia, New Founder Diamond Glushko Ivan and Svetlana, New Founder Diamond Vigul Vita, Founder EDC Pavlyuk Yaroslav and Valentina!
Festive fireworks accompanied by the song of Olivia Newton «Dare to dream! Dare to fly! Dare to be the heir, the chosen one to touch the sky» was very special and memorable one! Later on all new qualifiers could meet together, celebrate and take pictures at the special Reception.
Thank you all for the sincere performances, great attitude and wonderful memories!”
An Amway icon and one of Network TwentyOne’s great leaders, Bernice Hansen passed away on September 27th at the age of 101. Having been an IBO with Amway from the beginning and built to the level of Crown with her husband Fred, Bernice was loved for her wisdom, generosity and enthusiasm and respected by all for her accomplishments. Having worked with Bernice over the last decade or so, I was always struck by her kindness and confidence. Truly a remarkable woman.
Because of the enormous family of IBOs who knew and loved Bernice, the family has decided to stream Bernice’s funeral service live for all of you to take part in. The service will begin Wednesday, October 3 at 1:00 PM Eastern time. To view the service, simply click here at the appropriate time and the service will stream at the top of the page.
Below are a few articles on Bernice with quotes from many senior Amway managers as well as Rich DeVos. Additionally I dug up a few of my favorite pics.
One of my favorite markets anywhere … one might say it’s a real “cracker”! Network TwentyOne is large and in charge in the UK and creatively supporting Network TwentyOne affiliated UK IBOs in new and exciting ways!
Founders Crown Ambassador Aleksey Mautanov was our guest speaker at this Autumn Regional Conference. His message to the ABO’s was simple, and very encouraging. ‘The business works if you work the business.
The event kicked off on Saturday evening with an inspirational video message to the UK from Jim Dornan. The event was buzzing from the start! The UK ABO’s left on Sunday focused and optimistic for the coming months as they reset goals and re-affirmed their commitment to Go & Grow.
Being the kind of guy that gets the inside scoop on all things cool in Network TwentyOne, I was recently given the heads up about a very special meeting of the global management team at Network TwentyOne’s global headquarters just outside of Atlanta, GA – USA. Managers from 25 countries representing 36 markets descended on Network TwentyOne’s headquarters for 5 days of updates, training, fellowship as well as the sharing of best practices from all over the world.
Saturday evening kicked things off with a causal reception where old friends reconnected. With the average employment term of over 12 years, most of the global management team has met many time before and for the new managers, new friendships were made.
Sunday was a day of relaxation and sport out on a popular lake north of Atlanta and then into meetings Monday through Wednesday. Topics covered included finance, marketing and promotion, global BSM development and compliance, events management best practices and new ideas, new technologies including digital CEP delivery and Channel-21, customer service, copyright rules and best practices, targeting ideas for Gen-Y and last but not least, social media practices (a personal fav. I got to sit in on).
In addition to the above, the global management team was treated to a great talk by David and Jules Dornan on Network TwentyOne from a Diamond’s perspective. But perhaps best of all was the special time shared with Jim Dornan as he gave updates on his health (which is great), discussed the history of Network TwentyOne and laid out an exciting vision for the future of Network TwentyOne as he an Nancy see it growing through current leadership, new leadership and as exciting, second generation leaders like David and Jules.
Needless to say a righteous time was had by all… the management team left with a greater sense of mission, purpose and a passion to support Network TwentyOne affiliated IBOs around the world. What else would you expect from a company dedicated to personal and professional development?
I'm just a simple guy with some amazing access to leaders and news within the global world of Network TwentyOne. I'm always upbeat, I never Cross Line and occasionally have some interesting news and info.
