It's never too late to follow your dream
You may call me a serial entrepreneur. In the last 38 years I have worked as a graphic designer, a waitress, a typist, a kitchen designer, a personal development coach, in team building, as a health & nutrition coach, a director of various companies, and, oh, I've probably missed a few.
I launched several business, including an import and distribution business and a wellness retreat business. How did I end up in Network Marketing?
Well, I started dabbling in several different network marketing companies because I understood the business model well. But none felt right for me, so I never felt committed to actually build a business with it. There was always something missing. And to be honest, I also had an underlying belief that there was something wrong or un-ethical with network marketing.
It's unfortunate that some pushy people in the business give this industry a bad name. A lot of people still thing it's a pyramid scheme, which is actually illegal. Some just have had a bad experience. They got enrolled and never made it work for themselves and now they thing all network marketing is a scam. I'm sorry they had a bad experience and that means they're not going to be able to enjoy an abundant and joyful life with this 21st Century business structure. With the right company, network marketing, in my opinion, is the best business one can be in. I will talk more about this in one of my blog posts.
But to give you the words of Robert Kiyosaki, American businessman and author of 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad':
"We found that one business model stood out from the rest. This particular business model creates passive income, but requires relatively little cash investment to start up. It has low overhead and can be operated on a flexible part-time basis until it generates enough cash flow for the entrepreneur to transition out of her or his current full-time job. That business model is called Network Marketing."
So to cut a long story short. I eventually found the company that aligned with my values. Ethical, sustainable, fresh, innovative... and now I decided to really fully go for it. So at the age of 59 I started yet another business. And I haven't looked backed. I wanted to create a better pension for myself and I wanted to be able to have fun with my husband, our daughters and my mum, like taking them on holiday to the Caribbean.
I was really lucky, because the company I eventually decided to partner with also provided me with amazing free training, ongoing personal and professional development, mentoring and roll-models I aspired to.
This year (2021) I'm going to be 64 years young. I currently lead a very successful team of partners Europe wide and my particular focus is on growing the business in the UK and Portugal. Thanks to the training and mentoring that was available to me, I not only developed myself but also learned the real secrets of successful and authentic network marketing. I enjoy my life and I bring wellness and sustainability into people's homes. What's not to love! You can do it too.
