Shawn Mark & Janice Soh
“Be positive, don’t give up and most importantly, believe in yourself. Everything is possible!”
Driven by a core desire to lead an unconventional, extraordinary life where they can retire young and rich, Janice and Shawn were not afraid to break from tradition to embrace income models that can future-proof their wealth. With this openness to explore, they welcomed Nu Skin into their lives in 2013 and never looked back ever since. While their motivation to join Nu Skin may resonate with the many who chose this route to attain time and financial freedom, the couple faced a unique set of issues that were quite unlike those that Nu Skin business builders commonly grapple with.
Introduced into Nu Skin by Janice’s ex-schoolmate, the home-based financial advisor had scant knowledge about direct selling and the industry. However, after finding out more during a business opportunity session, Janice knew it is something she has been looking for. Similarly, Shawn who has been running a family business in construction and renovation over the last 10 years, has always had an entrepreneurial eye for good opportunities. “I’ve heard about direct selling and I’m all for this business model but it is until Nu Skin crossed our path that I decided it is a worthwhile company to venture into network marketing with,” Shawn shared. Being open to the business idea helped accelerate their learning process and sped their growth to become leaders.
Although the couple were devoted to the business, they had one major challenge. They were not the products of Nu Skin products. “A lot of people started as product users first before becoming business builders and that helped because people could see the before-and-after effects. In our case, we started as business builders right away so we couldn’t use ourselves as product testimonials to convince people about Nu Skin,” Janice recounted. To really know what they are selling, both of them became users and also get their family members to try. The amazing results from all who used wowed them and gave them the confidence to help more people derive benefit. “It doesn’t matter how you start the business, but there’s always a way as long as you have a strong will to succeed,” Shawn reminded that success in Nu Skin is more about mindset than skillset.
The husband-and-wife team may have been attracted to the business initially for financial reasons but now, they cite personal growth and the people they’ve helped as the true rewards. For helping them achieve their Blue Diamond milestone, Janice and Shawn are very grateful to their parents who were extremely supportive even though they had a very difficult time in the beginning of the business. They are also indebted to all their mentors who guided them, turning from strangers to friends, and to all their business partners working alongside them over the years.
As they inch closer to fulfil their core desire, the leaders are eager to help as many people as possible achieve better health and appearance, as well as build a financial stronghold that is future-ready!
