Independent Distributor Nuskin South Africa
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” –John Lennon
My Nu Skin journey started in February 2014. At the time I was doing Nu Skin part-time while being in the Construction Industry. By August 2014 my commission had grown considerably, allowing me to leave my occupation and persue my Nu Skin byusiness full time.
Partnering with a company like Nu Skin gave me the confidence to approach people that I normally would not, people that are older, very successful and could be intimidating. My self-confidence has improved not only in the way I relate to people but also being comfortable to speak in front of anybody. I have learnt to listen carefully to people in order to identify their needs. I have also learned that I can give everybody the same opportunity, although they need to decide whether this business is for them, or not.
To be successful in Nu Skin, patiance & perserverance is key. You also need to follow a proven system and be coachable.
Since I started my business I have experienced the freedom of time, I have the freedom to accommodate new prospects at time that suit them best. I am also able to enhance my quality of life by spending more time in the gym and complimenting my fitness regime with superior supplementation. This has helped me to get in better shape, exercise more effectively with increased stamina and has remarkably improved my ability to concentrate. With my improved Immune System I feel great everyday!
Since my mother started using the products and was receiving countless compliments on her “younger look”, my whole family is now using Nu Skin products.
I have a focussed vision and long term goal that drives me daily. I would like to be Team Elite by the age of 27 and make a meaningful change in people’s lives, especially improving the quality of life for mentally handicapped people.
To be succesfull you need to “lead by example”, people do what you do, not what you say they should do. “Be the change you want to see in the world” - Confucius
From Shack to Success!
After moving from Witbank to Tsakane in 2002 due to family problems, I found myself living in a tiny shack with no friends or family nearby. I left my child in Swaziland, as I was unemployed at the time. I was living in very difficult conditions and my shack was not furnished and I didn’t even have a bed to sleep on. Most nights I would go to bed with an empty stomach. Months went by and I still struggled, but I kept my faith in God and believed that He would bring greater things into my life. Back when I was living in Mpumalanga, I used to buy Table Charm products and I was lucky enough to come across a Table Charm Price List in 2003. That day I decided that if I start selling Table Charm products, I would be able to make a living for myself and that my life would change.
I called the Home Office and told them that I wanted to join Table Charm. They referred me to a lady that told me about Kate Maunye. I introduced myself to Kate and joined Table Charm as her Consultant. She explained the business opportunity to me and since then I never looked back! I slowly saw my life changing! I could now buy food with my commission from selling Table Charm! In 2006 I became a Manager and that encouraged me to work even harder. I was fortunate enough to get my own RDP house and even though it was not my dream house, it was still better than living in my shack. I sold even harder and earned even more and in 2008 I managed to extend my house and I furnished it with expensive furniture. Finally I was living the life I had always dreamt of! I could now afford to send some money home for my child to finish her studies. Thank you Table Charm!
I invited my family from Swaziland to visit me at my new house and they could not believe what they saw. My house is beautiful with a fully fitted kitchen and a geyser! I told them it was all thanks to Table Charm! My next big goal was to buy a car. I Recruited even more and sold more products than ever and in 2011 I bought myself a bakkie which helped me to grow my business even more! A secret to my success is that I sell a variety of ranges to lots of Customers. That is where I obtain my repeat sales every month and I also do demonstrations often to spread the word of my business. As a Table Charm Manager, I make sure my account is fully paid on time and I work hard with my team by my side.
I have so much joy in my heart because Table Charm has really changed my life! Thank you Table Charm!
EDUCATOR TO ENTREPRENEUR
From Educator to Entrepreneur
I joined Table Charm as a part time job in 1998. As a teacher and later a principal, I never thought Table Charm would later become a big part of my life. The turn-around came in November 2002 after attending the Table Charm Big Bash. A dream was born in me after realising that Table Charm can support me and my family.
In March 2003 I attended a training for a Manager position. During the same year I branched out two Managers from my team. 2004 was a land mark for me: hard work at Table Charm earned me my first overseas trip to Singapore. It was such a great moment that put me and Table Charm on the map. People around me started to notice the change Table Charm was making in my life and family.
In 2006 my husband and I realised that we can change our careers from working in the public service department to being entrepreneurs. This thought dominated our minds to an extent that whatever we did was aimed at financial and professional freedom one day. This could only happen through Table Charm. The extra money I made was channelled to property. This earned us our first property investment.
Backed by extra income from Table Charm, I applied for a bond for a second investment property and it was granted. At the same time we bought our third house in Nelspruit, my husband no longer had to do everything on his own due to my earnings at Table Charm.
In 2008, the biggest change of my life happened. I left teaching where I was a principal to be a full time Distributor. On the entrepreneur side we had also bought a free stand, we had planned to build a block of flats. 2013 was a perfect time to start the flat project. Two of the nine flats are complete and we already have tenants. My husband has joined me as a full time pastor and entrepreneur. Meanwhile Table Charm continues to provide the much needed cash for me and my husband.
In addition to all this, Table Charm has done what no one can do for me by flying me to Singapore, Bali, Dubai, Hong Kong, France and Mauritius. I have no words to express my gratitude to Table Charm for helping ease my journey from just a teacher to an entrepreneur.
