I’ve made my dreams come true selling AMC!
Selling Pots? Only? My dream came true! Yes, pots ONLY made my dreams come true! With focus, determination and hard work - my dreams came true. I joined AMC part time in January 2004 whilst working as a teacher. I made up my mind that same year October that I would like to work full time for AMC. In January 2005, instead of going back to my classroom, I joined AMC full time and was later appointed as PE branch area manager.
For the first time in my life I was able to go on an overseas trip. I have never missed qualifying for a trip and either take my husband or one of my son’s along. Indonesia, Singapore, Egypt, Portugal, China, India, Phuket, Morocco!
I have proudly sent two of my son’s to university without any financial aid. Without AMC I also could not have sent my laatlammetjie to Grey College or lived in the beautiful PE suburb of Summerstrand. And last but not least, I couldn't have met my 50th dream – I bought myself a brand new Mercedes Benz and did not need to sell my double cab bakkie either!
FRANCIS PULE NDABA
From township entrepreneur to high-flyer
Not being able to take care of your family is a nightmare for any husband or wife, mother or father. That is why Annique Health and Beauty Consultant, Francis Pule Ndaba, tried every career opportunity that came his way, to try and give his family the lives that they deserved. Even though many of his business ventures failed, he kept hoping, and finally discovered an opportunity that could change their lives.
Before last year, Francis Pule Ndaba, 50, from Empangeni in Kwazulu-Natal made a living by selling chickens. Before then, he ran a few small businesses, but none of them were very successful.
“In January 2014, I became an Annique Health and Beauty Consultant after seeing the healing effects of their Rooibos products whilst struggling with a sore on my foot. I went to many doctors, but no ointment seemed to help. Fortunately, I met Sizakele Ntuli, a Consultant from Annique, who introduced me to their healing products that contain a potent Rooibos extract. Within a month, my foot was completely healed. I was surprised! I don’t like selling products that I don’t believe in, but I could see myself marketing products that make a real difference.”
Francis attended Annique functions to learn more about the business opportunity that includes selling Rooibos products and building your own team. “For the first time, I had hope for the future. I knew this was my opportunity to start building a sustainable living for my family.”
Since then, his business has grown rapidly. “I am receiving phone calls from strangers all over the country who want to buy Annique Rooibos products. I’m also recruiting people into my team that currently consists of 16 members. The bigger your team and the more products you sell, the more you earn!”
Francis, who does not own a car, is achieving all of this by using public transport or walking to his clients to deliver products and to tell people about Annique. From 1 March 2014 to 31 August 2014, Frances has managed to sell enough products to help him to qualify for an all expenses 7 day trip to Phuket in Thailand.
“I have never been on an airplane or overseas before, and without Annique, I don’t think I ever would have had the opportunity to travel to other countries. I look forward to relaxing on the beach and spending time with the other Annique Consultants. Qualifying for this tour is a dream come true. Previously, I just dreamed of supporting my family. But, now I can dream big. Our lives are changing; the sky is not my limit.”
Single parent buying cars for her two sons and daughter!
I am so proud to have had the opportunity to be associated with Avon.
I am a single parent with 3 children. My husband passed away over 10 years ago and I had to educate my children on my own and Avon helped pay for this. My eldest son studied Marketing and in addition I was able to buy him his first car. My second son studied Marketing and Financial Management and I also paid for his first car. My daughter completed Matric 3 years ago and enjoyed a break year from her studies while deciding what she would like to study the following year. I was also able to buy her a car!
Avon has also enabled me to tour the United States and Europe. I’ve also been to Australia and New Zealand.
Avon affords women and men the opportunity to be successful and comfortable and enjoy the finer things in life because of the financial independence it offers through its earning opportunity. I don’t think I will ever stop being associated with Avon.
