Executive Brand Director
"Every person’s value is in the thought they hold."
In recent years before Nu Skin, life was difficult for Theela Balakrisinan who previously worked in the banking and insurance industry. She was not an independent person be it in managing her personal finances and day-to-day expenses. This situation completely eroded her self-confidence and she felt really hopeless and helpless all the time.
But enough was enough. As soon as she decided to do something about her problems, she ran into C Kogeelathavi Sinniah, who introduced her to Nu Skin. She figured as she had nothing to lose, she decided to give the Nu Skin business opportunity a try. As it turned out, it became one of the best decisions in her life.
"I decided to grab the opportunity and told myself I would need to work very hard. To be honest, there were many times that I wanted to quit. But I told myself no; I have dreams, big dreams that I wanted to achieve. So I kept going and kept reminding myself why I took this up in the first place. I am glad I did because today, my life has totally changed."
Physically, she is delighted that Nu Skin's weight loss program had helped her reached a healthier weight and this is a great testimony when she is selling products to her customers. But most of all, she is tremendously grateful that her Nu Skin business has helped her regain her confidence. Now she has something that truly belongs to her. For the first time, she feels empowered and it has inspired her to share the benefits of the products and business opportunities to others.
While her Nu Skin journey has its ups and down, Theela stays focused on her goals and refuses to let the obstacles she encountered along the way discourage her. One of her main challenges is dealing with the negative emotions that surface when she faces rejection from her prospects. However, she persevered and began doing a lot of work on herself to be more mentally strong. At the same time, she also developed strong leadership skills which garnered much admiration and respect from her downlines.
"In this business, I realized it is important to control my emotions," she explains. "Whether I feel disappointment, anger, frustration or sadness, the feelings will pass. No matter what happens, I stay consistent and persistent in what I do. I always remind myself not to give up easily."
It definitely took a lot of hard work and personal growth for Theela to be where she is today, but it was all worth it in the end. Just recently she has achieved the Executive Brand Director title, which is an important milestone for her.
"This is a very big achievement for me," she says. "It's a great feeling to know all the hard work I have put in has helped to change my life for the better. Of course, this is just the beginning because my aim now is to motivate my team to achieve more. Thank you, Nu Skin for giving me the opportunity to transform myself!"
