In 2006, I went from being an employee to being an owner of a Thai restaurant in Amsterdam. At the time, I thought it was a solid business for me, but everything was not as I expected. Due to personal problems, in late 2009 I had to close my restaurant. My life immediately became unstable and I was jobless. A few months later, I was back in the restaurant business and had a job as an assistant manager. I knew at that moment that it was going to be very difficult for me once again, but with my experience of being in the restaurant business for more than 10 years, I felt I had no other choice.
Back in 2007, my sponsor, Mr Stijn Kolen introduced me to Pharmanex. I knew that the products in the Pharmanex range were of very good quality. But at the time, I had no idea about the Nu Skin business opportunity. And because I’m a person who is always looking for business opportunities, I decided to learn more about the compensation plan. One thing that I already believed in was the products. So I started sharing the Pharmanex and Nu Skin products, and business opportunity with all the people I knew.
After seven months, I reached the Ruby Executive pin title and went on the Ruby Trip. I had a great experience while on the Ruby Trip and at the Global Convention. Back home again, I stopped working at the restaurant and I also lost my Ruby pin title and became a Distributor.
In 2010, when I once again had a full time job as an assistant restaurant manager, I realised that this is not the way I wanted my life and started to seriously think about Nu Skin again. I have to become Ruby! I spoke to myself and realised that I needed to focus on my goal. At 09:00, I started my day doing demonstrations and product presentations with my prospects and began my full time job at 14:00 to 23:30 at night. In 2012, I found myself in a difficult situation, so I resigned from my full time job and at that moment, I just became a Gold Executive. My only choice was to make my Nu Skin business successful.
My life was completely changed when R² was launched in Europe in April 2013. Everyone in my organisation used R² and started to share the products and business opportunity. My network began growing quickly because of three words. Use the products, love the products and share the products. Everyone has to know that we're doing Nu Skin! I taught my network to understand goals and obstacles. We must see that our goal is bigger than the obstacle. Most important in our organisation is that we have to build relationships, share the company’s story and products with positive people.
This business is about helping people achieve their goals. No matter how hard it's going to be, don't let go of your dreams and never give up until you've reached your goal!
If you want to become successful as bad as you want to breathe than you'll become successful!
Many thanks to my downline, family and friends.
All the best and good health from Pichet, Pornpan from the Netherlands!
