The clock shows that if I go beyond Cinderella’s curfew…I might really soon turn back into my rags in the morning.
Remember, words are powerful…Use them wisely!
Today, despite the fact that I already slept at almost 4am due to the eagerness to absorb a lot of training ideas regarding the business of Forever Living ProductsI have been toggling back and forth to do or not…be serious or not…to take off from “ I will try” to really decide to be a success in it or not?
Okay…maybe…I need to get some spring cleaning done so as to clear the cobwebs off the roof and corners of my mind.
Misty water colored memories.
I will really have to do a great digging.
I got first exposed to Network Marketing from my BFF Trixie. She simply asked me to tag along her as she went about trying to work out this concept with a single product Filipino company called Issho Genki Phil. Inc with the wonder shark liver oil Squalene.
I got to know some of the early and future key leaders of Joey Bonifacio’s company like Chinkie Tan and BFF Trixie’s direct upline Erickson Raymundo.
I first met them at the early days of Shangril Edsa Mall.
I was doing part time work as a Message Handling Specialist at the leading paging company EasyCall Phil. Inc.
The efficacy of the product was really tested when I had to do graveyard shifts and the lack of sleep was really compensated by the energy boost that Squalene gave me.
Among other things was the cleaning of impurities of my system when I noticed that my urine output was getting clearer and clearer as each day progressed.
Lo and behold one day… I noticed that I expelled something looking ominous.
Whatever it was…I felt relieved that it was out of my system.
Building the business was another story.
I made a lot of mistakes. One of which was not concentrating in the 5 mile radius principle. Sticking to one’s own backyard to maximize exposure within minimum expenses.
I went to the provinces to promote my product and network.
Anyway, the Asian financial crisis affected the company so badly that it somehow had to shut down it’s distributors by putting the product on shelves of the leading pharmacy in the Philippines, Mercury Drug chain.
Somehow, I emerged from the confusion and rubble of it all with a jaded concept of the beautiful marketing concept of Multi-Level Marketing and the shadow of it being a scam could not be shaken off.
My BFF Trixie somehow emerged as a star.
I will never forget her powerful testimony in the biggest ballroom of Makati Shangrila. She literally brought the house down!
This was post her HongKong incentive trip from the company.
I will continue this trip down memory lane tomorrow when I share my exposure to how to got to know Forever Living Products here in Doha, Qatar.
