Venus and Percy Lazo
Venus & Percy Lazo
"Both of us saw the vision that Nu Skin can bring to our lives. This is the opportunity that we had been waiting for. We made a choice to Be, Do, and Have something different."
For a couple who grew up, met, and married in the province of Quezon, Percy and Venus Lazo’s world revolved around farms and small towns, with occasional visits to the city. Percy grew up in the farm and literally was tilling the soil, planting trees and root crops, and raising animals. Venus, likewise, grew up in a less privileged family and never experienced a normal childhood. At age 8, she was already working for a small eatery, which was the family’s business. These experiences made them harbor big dreams, for they wanted a different life for their family. The couple realized that their dreams are not ordinary dreams and therefore called for extraordinary efforts. They were prepared for hard work.
“Both of us saw the vision that Nu Skin can bring to our lives. This is the opportunity that we had been waiting for. We made a choice to Be, Do, and Have something different.” In less than six and a half years in the business, Venus and Percy achieved the title of Blue Diamond. They were also recognized by the Direct Selling Association of the Philippines as Entrepreneur of the Year in 2009, and now celebrate their latest accomplishment—being Nu Skin Philippines’ newest Million Dollar Circle Members.
Amidst all the success, the couple has this to say: “When we were still struggling with our finances we always prayed for blessings to pay our bills. Now that everything has been provided for us, we always pray that the Lord God lead us to people who need an opportunity; that our story be an inspiration to a lot of people—that even if they are just ordinary, if they want an extraordinary life and are willing to fight for their right to freedom, then it is achievable. They just need to have CLEAR GOALS, a BELIEF that they deserve that great life, and willingness to take ACTION and do what it takes to make it happen.” “Success is only meaningful when you are able to affect a better change in someone’s life.”
From the boondocks of Quezon to the halls of Nu Skin Enterprises Philippines at 15th Floor Octagon Building in Ortigas, Pasig, Percy and Venus Lazo have certainly come a long way.
