“In the next couple years, we hope to see and experience some of the fastest growth Amway has ever undergone in North America,” says Toby Ayers. “And we’re right in the middle of it thanks to superior products and leadership.” A second-generation IBO (his parents are Diamonds), Toby and his wife Mia recently left their careers (his in business development, hers in clothing design) to sell more and mentor “the next generation of entrepreneurs.”Ninety percent of their team is age 28 and younger and includes many people who, like Toby, see this as a long-term business career and appreciate the opportunities it can afford.
Mayak and Sejal Gala IBOs since 1993 | Emerald In 2008, Ishan Gala celebrated his second birthday in the hospital. The next day, his parents’ hearts were broken when doctors
told them, “There is nothing more we can do.” Eight short days later, their beloved little boy passed away.
Ishan’s battle started eight months earlier when he was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer most common in children under five. His parents, Mayak and Sejal, fought hard alongside him.
Throughout Ishan’s illness, the Galas were by his side. “We were able to spend every single day of the two years and nine days of Ishan’s life with him,” says Mayak. The Gala’s had worked hard in the years before their son’s illness to develop an AMWAY business that offered them the flexibility to order their priorities and focus on their son when they needed to.
Now, Mayak says, the business lets him pursue his new passion: fighting the disease that took Ishan. “I didn’t even know that kids got cancer until this happened to my son,” he says. “Now my idea of perfect happiness is to make sure that no parent ever hears what we heard … that nothing more can be done.”
