DR MUHAMMAD TAUFIQ
Executive Brand Director
“When you stop learning, you will stop growing.”
Beginning as a product user in 2007, Dr. Taufiq was contented just to enjoy the skin care and health benefits provided by Nu Skin and Pharmanex. However, attending a Nu Skin millionaire conference in 2009 changed all that when he witnessed how someone his own age was living a lifestyle of time and financial freedom. Inspired, the young doctor decided to take a closer look into Nu Skin as a business builder and after years of hard work, polished himself to shine as a Nu Skin Blue Diamond.
Being a medical doctor, one may think it is easier for Dr Taufiq to attain success in the business as prospects are more open and trusting towards someone in a highly regarded profession. But that wasn’t the case. “The biggest obstacle was myself. I had to let go of the ego of being a doctor and to start selling products and business opportunity. When you try to sell people things, they become guarded no matter what’s your background,” Dr Taufiq shared. On top of rejection, he also had to deal with learning everything about the business and products from scratch. Thankfully, with guidance from his uplines and his own persistence, he rose above the challenges.
“One of the biggest misconceptions people have about direct selling is that it is a sales job for non-professionals. By succeeding in Nu Skin, I join the many professionals such as doctors, accountants, engineers and CEOs in sending the message that this business is for everybody who wishes to transform their lives.” The motivation behind Dr. Taufiq’s career transformation is to provide a better life for himself and his family. “As a General Practitioner (GP), I was earning a good income but my health suffered because of long irregular hours and being at the forefront of infectious diseases constantly. I may make a lot of money but I don't have the time and good health to enjoy it.”
Enjoying more time and financial freedom today, Dr. Taufiq is glad he persisted in the business. “Qualifying for Blue Diamond wasn’t easy. I made several attempts to qualify but didn’t make it. The good thing about the Nu Skin business is that even if you fail the first time, you can always learn and try again. It is important to remain steadfast and never, ever give up!”
Helping him on his Nu Skin success journey so far, Dr. Taufiq is very grateful to his elder sisters and uplines Rozana; Blue Diamond executive Roziani; Blue Diamond executives Ang Wui Lee and Chan May Ling; Blue Diamond executives Koh Yen Yen; and 1 Million Dollar Circle Lim Siang Joo. The new leader hopes to help more of his downlines achieve success and realise their dreams.
