When I joined Network Marketing in 2017 it was my first career in the Network marketing. I never knew that one day I will be one of the top leader or rather top earner in this industry. I did not know that I would be carrying the huge task of changing the face of Network Marketing in Africa.
Believe me when I say, all I wanted was just a passive income. I didn’t know it will turn out to be something I do as a profession and worse on a full time basis because the banking sector really looked after me, they paid me well.
However, I was hooked by the idea of having passive income.
If truth be told and to be apt and honest I used to think Network Marketing wasn’t cut out for me. I looked down on this profession to a point I kept my new career with Longrich a secret from many of my people for at least six months after joining the business.
Though I wasn’t too sure, somehow I had an inclination that selling a sanitary napkin which is one of Longrich’s main line product would one day make me a millionaire. I knew that with every girl child born every day I would never go wrong. There would always be a need for a good quality sanitary napkin.
Without research, I was rather concerned that my new ambition was bound to fail and I had to come up with new and smarter strategies to sell these products. I had to find a better way of marketing myself and make it more attractive, because for years I thought most of the people in Network Marketing were just making noise and there was no substance to it.
I now have teams as far as Brazil and in the United Kingdom but Africa is special to me. Africa is deep in my heart I am busy exploring the African market and it does my spirit good to see the explosion of my teams in:
- Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique
- Lesotho, Swaziland, Angola
- Cape Verde, Congo Brazzaville, Congo Kinshasa
- Uganda, Mombasa, Rwanda, Tanzania
Network Marketing has its lows and highs but mostly highs. People can discourage you, other people will walk just one mile with you and the rest of the 100 miles you walk on your own. I have learnt my lessons in the few years also.
I have learnt that leading is also learning.
True to my cause, together with my husband we funded and established a factory that designs and manufactures sports wear under the brand called ALL ROUND FITNESS AFRICA and a registered foundation called Mokome Foundation 4 years ago, an initiative that has adopted more than 8 schools in South Africa.
The foundation has amongst other activities distributed thousands of sanitary pads to students in disadvantaged schools.
