Tribute to Bill Britt & His IMPACT!

Sincere Tribute to Bill Britt –

When I was 14 years old, I came home from summer visit with Mom and Dad sat me down to explain that he started a new business venture.  He showed me the Amway Plan and I got it right away.  I had never heard of any type of business like that.  It made sense.  I sat in on meetings and events and then became obsessed with listening to tapes (yes tapes, i know, i know…a long time ago :))  Well, Dad had to be careful not to give me a Bill Britt, Dave Severn, Jim Mainor, or any real strong speaker right before I went to bed because I had trouble sleeping.  Nowhere had i ever heard of people talking so strongly about Business Ownership, God, Principles, Love of Country, Freedom and Family.  And all were very successful.  Most had quit there jobs and were living a life of Freedom without Bosses and 9 to 5 jobs and were simply building their business.  Going through all the challenges with growing up, I continued to listen to tapes.   They were shaping me as a person.  Then when I was 19 years old, I went to a business seminar that Bill was doing.  I had been to them prior, but for some reason, this event was unique.  The whole weekend they kept talking about the SECRET was going to be shared Sunday.  After many testimonies, there was no way I was going to miss Sunday’s meeting!  You kidding me… the SECRET was going to be revealed.  I really already knew what they were going to be talking about, but Bill Britt was talking right to me.   I don’t remember the exact words but after a long story of how God is the foundation of his life and the Secret was confessing with your mouth and believing in your heart that Jesus died for us on the Cross, I knew it was time to give my life to God.  Along with hundreds and hundreds of other people, Bill Britt delivered the ultimate message to me!  What words could I possibly have to show my appreciation to this man!   I then told others that they have to learn about the Secret and brought others to his Sunday service at future events.   Because they wanted to learn the secret, I saw my friends Keith, Vernon, Vernell, Joe, and Karen all go through the same process within the next couple years from a Bill Britt Sunday morning non-denominational teaching and testimony straight from the Bible.

Bill was so strong in his message that many had trouble with his dominant speech, but there was no question about it, you knew where he stood.  Though I am no longer in the Amway business, Bill will always be remembered and honored by me.   His impact on me is one of the main reasons that I haven’t had a boss in over 20 years, have owned many businesses, and that I give God all the credit and Glory.  From me, my friends, and the thousands of others that you gave the Secret to, Thank you!  You have been one of my greatest Mentors and Heroes.

Bill Britt: A strong, opinionated leader, at one time his organization may have represented half of all Amway volume.  Through his love of God, Country and Business, he transformed many lives.  If the Scorecard of life is determined by the number of people that are better off because you lived, then Bill Britt aced the test.  Thank you Bill and Peggy!  Bill Britt died on January 23, 2013 in Jacksonsville, Fl to live his life in eternity with the Lord.   He will be greatly missed for positively impacting so many!
