|LOS Upline:||Covington, Rocky|
Kevin graduated from West Point in 1987 with a degree in aeronautical engineering. Beth’s undergraduate degree was in medical technology from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth; then she graduated from Duke in 1990 as a Physicians Assistant. We saw the business plan in October 1991, about six months after Kevin got back from serving as a scout platoon leader with the 82nd Airborne Division during the Gulf War. Kevin got excited about owning his own business and making $400 per month to pay off student loans and get out of debt. Beth saw the potential to contribute professionally, yet still be a stay-at-home mom. The best of both worlds.
We went Platinum the first year, Ruby the second, Sapphire the third, and Emerald the fourth year of building our business. By the end of the third year, we had paid off $57,000 in debt; in the fourth year, we banked over $100,000. Beth retired from medicine on December 6,1995, and Kevin, who had gone into real estate upon leaving the military, retired in early 1996. A major THANK YOU!!! to all the Diamonds, especially our “Rich Dads” – Rocky Covington and Paul Miller. Thank you Britt team. Thank you Bill and Peggy Britt for providing a system that has afforded us years of freedom – so far – and has allowed us to give our children, Samuel David and Rebekah Juline, a family life we could only have dreamed of. And… THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!

Our reasons for starting a business in addition to demanding professions was to payoff $37,000.00 in Student Loan debt. We've built our business to help us reach our goals of eliminating our debt and working for ourselves. We have been able to raise a family together and enjoy setting and reaching our financial goals. We have two children Sam age 6 and Rebekah age 4. Our future goals include - continuing to help others achieve financial independence, give more to charity, help our families, and continue to raise our family stress free. We enjoy the flexibility and self-paced growth this business affords. You can have any desire you are willing to work for. Better still you can learn from tremendous business leaders. Thank you Bill Britt, Paul Miller, Rocky Covington and all our business mentors. God Bless!

I have been an independent business owner with Amway and then Quixtar since October of 1991. Our business has been our primary source of income since 1995. I am a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and my wife is a graduate of Duke University's Physician Assistant (PA) program. The honor code at West Point states that you can not lie, cheat, or steal nor tolerate those who do. It is difficult in this day an age to find corporations and organizations that will live up to those standards. My almost 15 years of experience with Amway and then with Quixtar has been incredible. They have impressed me! They always seem to under promise and over deliver. It is even frustrating at times that they won't allow us to claim more. Our income has always exceeded what they allowed us to show. The products they offer have been quality and backed by money back returns. We have been blessed with much more than a business opportunity and a way to make more income than we ever dreamed. We have found our purpose in life - to help other people.
Disputes & Controversies
In July, 2007, a lawsuit was filed by International Business Solutions, Inc. a company operated by Emeralds Henry and Sue Skaggs naming Bill and Peggy Britt, Paul and Leslie Miller, Rocky Covington, Kevin and Beth Bell, and Britt WorldWide as defendants. The suit alleges that the Skaggs, having developed a software system to allow for direct order fulfillment of BSM to their downline, received approval from Britt to continue the development of the software program for eventual rollout to all of BWW. During this time, the Skaggs state that they carried the burden of the development costs. According to the lawsuit, in 2005 Bill Britt rescinded the agreement. The Skaggs then claim they were "de-edified" by their upline. The suit alleges breach of contract, racketeering, and intentional interference with economic relations .
In response, the defendents claimed that no contract was entered into and challenge the lawsuit on various other legal grounds.
