Amazing story of Samir Attalah

Samir & Theresa Attalah

Samir & Theresa Attalah

When Samir came from Egypt to America in 1979, he had $40 in his pocket and a desire to briefly see the land of opportunity. Samir ended up staying in the United States for ten years before he ever went back to visit his family.

Samir started out as a janitor while he went to Bible college. He went on to become a paper carrier while earning his master’s degree in computer science. By the time he saw the independent business ownership plan, he had amassed a comfortable six-figure income through various businesses and real estate.

    “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”

    ~John Quincy Adams

  85. Chris says:

    Samir, why are so many people skepital about this Amway business?

    • Amalia says:

      Chris a lot of people are skeptical because they have been burned so many times by other things. You have to earn there trust first, before you can show people the business.

    • Todd says:

      They look at someone who got in, and never did anything. When that person fails, they say, “See I told you it doesn’t work.” or “I knew it would work for you!” If you ask to see Samir’s calendar you will see that he has had at least 20 meetings a month for years.

  86. Jan says:

    Samir, wow you really have overcome a lot to build this business. Wow, i just finished listening to your CD
