5 Million Dollar Circle & 9 Year Team Elite
"Success = Believe. Commit. Persist!"
With a laughter that is immediately infectious and a joy that is quick to become contagious, talking to Selenium leaves one with the feeling of walking on cloud nine. Being happy, according to the 9-Years Team Elite member, is what the Nu Skin business is all about and the driving force behind her continued success with the direct selling giant. “I want to be part of the positive force of change that helps people rediscover what makes them happy and showing them how they can achieve it,” says the former piano teacher. Joining the Nu Skin business with her husband Poh Lin in 2001, Selenium felt that it was the best decision they have ever made.
Poh Lin was an ex-Air Force Officer who became an insurance agent before going full-time into Nu Skin with Selenium. Neither of them had experience in the personal care or health supplements industry and knew nothing about building a direct selling network. However, their desire to provide a better life for their family spurred them to succeed in this business. “Before we joined Nu Skin, Poh Lin and I dreamed about working hard, providing well for our children and saving enough to go globetrotting when we retire. Nu Skin allowed us to realise this dream much sooner. In the last year, we’ve been to 17 countries! And that’s not counting the many exotic places we travelled to throughout our time with Nu Skin,” Selenium shared.
While it is wonderful to vacation around the world anytime she liked without having to worry about finances, Selenium felt “empty” after a while. “It came to a point where I thought to myself, ‘I’ve seen many places, so what?’. Travelling satisfies a personal desire, it benefits me but it doesn’t help another person. Now, I’d rather stay in Singapore and find ways to help someone enrich their lives and broaden their life’s choices. It doesn’t matter if my contribution is very small. That is more meaningful to me.” Selenium feels that she is at the point where she has reached emotional stability and is at peace with herself and she is ready to help anyone who wants to arrive at this stage she is in.
In helping them achieve their 9 Year Team Elite qualification, Selenium and Poh Lin are very thankful to their mentors 5 Million Dollar Circle member Henry Ho; and US20 Million Dollar Circle members Rayne Ho and Angela Liew; as well as all Nu Skin staff for being the support they can rely on. Selenium is especially grateful to her sister-in-law, Chris, for watching over their children when they were away.
Acknowledging that sincere friendship is the foundation for success in the Nu Skin business, in moving forward, the leaders will continue to build on the basics of genuine care and concern for their customer’s well-being and strengthen the positive energy of their business partners to create a happy environment for all to stay healthy and be wealthy!
