I rummaged through old boxes in my garage and found a big plastic bin full of old Amway tapes. I talk about my top hitlist in this video. This video is just one installment of my email series “Deep Secrets of Marketing Psychology I Discovered in MLM.”

I’m sure you can find some of these tapes on Ebay. If you don’t have ’em, pick up a few of these titles and add them to your “audio swipe file.” They’re all brilliant, and instructive.

"What should I do next to grow my business this year?" Take my 2-minute quiz and I'll show you where you'll get the most bang for your buck.

And of course your comments and stories are always welcome, below….

  1. I’m trying to find an old Zig Ziglar Amway tape titled “A Plan to Win”. One of the best Ziglar talks I’ve ever listened to.

  2. I’m looking for an old Zig Ziglar tape distributed for Amway. It’s titled “The Plan” I believe.
    Zig asked the audience for about 30 words describing the “perfect” employee/person. He separates the words into two categories, inherent traits, and learned traits. Afterwards he reaffirms that thet are ALL traits that can be learned and taught.

  3. Spent LOTS of time with Coleman and Charlotte. All the AEI tapes we’re invaluable!!
    I would love to find a copy of Jay VanAndel’ “TANSTAFL”. The mystical town of TANSTAFL

    There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch

  4. My parents belonged to Amway when I was a kid. When I went off to college my dad gave me an Amway tape, I would fall asleep to. It was whales and other nature sounds.
    Does anyone have or know the name of the tape. I would love to listen to it again.

  5. I might be intetested, how much? Not involved in amway anymore. Found something alot better and easier.

  6. Hi I am after an old amway tape that I am sure was dexter and birdie Yaeger it was aboutbDiamonds I think it had a lot of good quotes and music on it one of the songs was ain’t no mountain high enough

  7. I’m looking for the diamond rhapsodies on cd preferably . If anyone knows where I can find it that would be great .

  8. there was a tape about the history, formation and purpose of Incorporations.
    Started out talking about Sailing Ships.
    Any one remember the name?

  9. Addison,
    The talk/tape that you are looking for is called “Oh Harry”!

    One of the best Amway talks ever!

  10. My mom had some of these tapes, she would play them in her car when she drove me to and from school(I didn’t take the bus to or from school until 4th grade)I remember one had Eye of the Tiger, Danger Zone, I Feel Good and When i’m Back on My Feet Again(and a few others I can’t remember).

    1. Hi Addison,
      Youtube has it!! Search Youtube for this title:
      The famous ‘Oh Harry’ – Revenge is Sweet – Full English Version (Part 1/2)

  11. My folks signed up with Amway, when I was 5, 91, 92ish. They had a tape with different speakers and songs after each speech. They let me listen to the tape, and I’d listen over and over beginning to end over and over. There was one speech that was my favorite, I’m trying to find it! The man talked about how his brother in law would scoff every year when he showed up about what car he was driving, the cars got better and he closes the speech saying ” someday I’m going to find a way to put runway lights on the driveway and go diamond” then the top gun song would play, does anyone know where I can find that speech? Or who I’m talking about? Appreciate the aid in the search!

    1. Hi Addison,
      The CD/cassette you are referring to is Music to Grow By (pretty sure that specific one was on Music to Grow By 3). I am looking for either a digital copy of the Music to Grow By series, or at the very least the track lists. Is there anyone who is able to help me out here? I’ve spent hours Google-ing and searching and emailing, trying to find some information but it seems like all record of them having ever existed has been destroyed due to Amway being sued for copyright infringement. I’m really just wanting the track list, so if there is anyone who is able to help out, it would be very much appreciated.

  12. I have a “bootleg” copy of Coleman and Charlotte Orr’s “HOW DO YOU SPELL RELIEF”
    Recorded live at a beach conference.
    Kenny Stewart attended that function.

    1. PLEASE HELP!!! My parents signed up in the early 90s when I was a kid, and I LITERALLY fell asleep EVERY SINGLE NIGHT to that one tape with all the songs on it (“Everybody ‘Go Diamond’ Tonight”, “Celebrate”, “Nothing’s gonna stop us”, “Livin in America”, etc.) AND I CANNOT FIND IT ANYWHERE!!!!! I’m dying inside because I have wanted that nostalgia in my life for over 2 decades now; but I can’t find any of the songs or the tape anywhere! Does ANYONE either have or know where I can find this cassette??? Thanks a million in advance!

  13. Looking for AMWAY from Mack Evans, it would be from the 1980’s. He was extremely popular at that time and AMWAY refers to him as the Eagle. They would announce him by saying the “The Eagle has landed”

  14. I’m looking for Randy Haugen, Don Wilson, Lance Smith, Kenny Stewart and Marker Man….preferably CD’s.

  15. The tape ever was “David and the Princess” by Doug Wead. An all-time classic. And #2 has to be “Pigs Don’t Know Pigs Stink” by Dave Severn. Absolute GOLD.

  16. Looking for : Depth is not an option – Orrin Woodward from 1999 I believe. Old amway tape (ledbetter group I think)


  17. I have been buying, selling and trading Amway / Quixtar recordings and other motivational materials since 2004. I have a collection of over 40,000 items. Please visit my website ToolDepotGlobal.com.

    1. I have one of the tapes you are looking for in stock. “What goes around, comes around” by Rita Davenport with a product # of TOW-137 from the INET (Yager) Organization. Please go to ToolDepotGlobal.com and search this Product # to find / purchase it.

  18. I am looking for a tape by the name of a lady called Emery, she talks about stockings and her best breast doctor

    1. Are you still looking to sell these tapes? I have been buying, selling and trading Amway / Quixtar recordings and other motivational materials since 2004. I would be interested in knowing what you have.

    2. Yes I am interested if you still have. Not in amway anymore, found something better and easier. Plz contact me.

  20. Looking for a speech, I think by Jay Van Angel, about a place called kullameyr? The basis of the story , There is no free lunch.

    1. Have a lot of old classic Amway tapes. Are you looking for something specific? Would be willing to sell a select few. Or the whole collection of a couple hundred tapes.

  21. I’m trying to track down that remake of the 100 year old speech that tells about the guy who went looking for diamonds and left a home sitting on a mine….the guy who went looking for gold and sold his house that sat on a gold mine…and the guy who walked into the tigress river………..with a message success is in your own back year. a classic

    1. The Book is called Acres of Diamonds…perhaps the version would be now in CD or ebook.

      But here is the link to the HTML Version to read.

      Great story indeed…I read it in 1993.
