Can f-1 students start their own business as an IBO of Amway?

Asked over 1 year ago - Auburn Hills, MI

I am University student from India. I joined Amway through my friend couple of month ago. I provided all the information including SSN while registering. Is it legal or illegal to do Amway business? International students are not allowed to work off the campus. What if I quit that business? Will I be in trouble? Give me the best solution.
