成功格言:

當全世界都不信你時,一定要堅信自己,永不言敗!

原行業別:跨國企業管理層

讓人生自主

孖生姊妹張雯娜(Gemina)及張雯馨(Renee),不論性情還是經營 NU SKIN 的經驗都截然不同。態度溫婉的姐姐Gemina,2001年加入 NU SKIN;妹妹Renee 說話耿直,最初純為陪伴姐姐而入行,之後才轉為全職。但兩人都相信:經營 NU SKIN ,可取回人生自主權。

Gemina 加入 NU SKIN 前在傳媒從事廣告工作。其實她很喜歡工作上能主動創造事物的感覺。「不過縱使多麼喜歡,個人時間始終受制於工作,經營NU SKIN 則由我安排工作時間。是我用時間,非時間用我。」原職工作時間不時日夜顛倒,她討厭被時間駕馭生活的感覺。

辭去舊職擁抱自我

至於妹妹Renee,原是跨國企業的部門主管。與Gemina 相反,Renee 對原職工作環境不甚滿意。「工作壓力大,辦公室政治更使自己品格、脾氣變差。我感到花了很多時間在不想面對的人和事上。」她常應Gemina 之邀到 NU SKIN 的活動會場,發現可以在這個平台做自己想做的事情。「我起初也質疑 NU SKIN ,覺得場內的興奮是作假。但細想之下,真正虛假的是舊東家:快樂文化欠奉,沒有歡呼沒有獎勵,只有周年晚宴那些虛偽的合照、謝辭和獎項。」人事紛擾,讓Renee 活似機械人,幸遇到 NU SKIN 後改變了這一切。

人人自主的遠景

姐姐的經驗也激發了Renee 的決心,「Gemina本來不必再辛勞,但我看到她真的能自主人生,令我對 NU SKIN 改觀。」Gemina也表示,經營 NU SKIN 使她生活更加自主、輕鬆和平安,她甚至把目光放到社會層次。「民生問題難單靠政策解決。人口老化與勞動人口失衡、醫療問題、工種減少及職場生態轉差……只有一個公平、人人皆可參與的工具,才有望解決困局。」而NU SKIN 就是Gemina 選擇的答案。Gemina 與Renee 現正合力領導團隊。雖說孖生,但Renee 坦言兩人總有意見不一的時候。「我們都會接納對方的看法,避免過份堅持己見,因為那總會有人歡喜有人不快, 失去經營NU SKIN 事業的本意。」她們相信放下堅執,共臻自主,正是 NU SKIN 事業的真諦。

Explore the Future TogetherNu Skin's global seamless compensation plan was not the only factor that drove Gemina to leave her advertising job and join Nu Skin. Indeed, what inspired her most were Nu Skin's culture of love, and the beliefs of "indiscriminative success" and "truth, virtue and beauty". "Through the training of the Company and my team, I have learnt to put aside my self-interest and be empathetic and caring. Now I can help myself whilst helping others. On top of this, Nu Skin offers a lifelong career that one can never get from any other conventional businesses, no matter you are employed or self-employed. With the sustainable income, you could give your family the best commitment ever, and it even guarantees them a carefree future," Gemina said. Moved by the passion of his wife, Ron, who was used to running family business, started his new career with Nu Skin last year. Since then, hand in hand, the couple heads towards a bright future.

Incomparable Satisfaction

In Nu Skin, the couple learned a new definition of "satisfaction". Gemina recalled, "Two years ago, when I was walking in Nu Skin Enterprises Plaza, a man came up to me and showed me a video clip in his cell phone. The clip captured the moment when I was being recognized on stage as Blue Diamond Executive* a few years ago. And he thanked me for inspiring him. This was a real-life example of Nu Skin's philosophy of 'impact lives with lives'. I never imagined I could take part in other people's lives like this. Such satisfaction cannot be found elsewhere but at Nu Skin." On the other hand, Ron'scontention comes from the boundless possibilities of the Nu Skin business, which make him believe miracles do happen. "Many of my friends who are successful in traditional business had a negative attitude towards direct selling originally. Yet, after witnessing how I have changed myself and being moved by my persistence, they gradually changed their mind. Some of them even asked me to introduce Nu Skin to them. Their changes surprised me a lot indeed, but at the same time, it became a motivation to drive me forward," said Ron.

Priceless Gains

When asked about their ideal life, the couple said with one voice, "On top of a carefree financial status and sufficient personal time, a life wouldn't be made perfect without the right to choose, a goal to reach and a dignity to be respected. But Nu Skin has brought us all of them." Gemina and Ron focused on their respective careers in the past. Yet, Nu Skin - their common language, has helped bring the couple much closer than before. Nu Skin has eliminated the invisible gap between them and their family members. The once silent couple now has endless topics to chat with. They are both grateful to have such unique intimacy.

Nu Skin's Merits

The "Force for Good" culture and the first-class products of Nu Skin are the two main reasons that drive the couple to devote wholeheartedly to the business. "Many companies support charity, but it's rare to have a company upholding the mission to continuously support the community and contribute to good deeds by pulling the 'Force for Good' from all over the world. I was moved by this company value, and now I am more attentive to people around and give a helping hand to whoever in need. Also, Nu Skin invests generously in scientific research to keep its products up-to-date - this is also the reason why it is way ahead of its counterparts," Gemina said with pride in her eyes.

Marching forward

Under the culture of love and the excellent team spirit, the efforts devoted by Gemina and Ron finally brought them to success. They are determined to nurture even more Blue Diamond Executives* and are heading for the title of Circle of Excellence Il . They are grateful that God has guided them to Nu Skin and their wonderful team. Their sincere thanks also go to Teresa Keung and Garmon Shiu, Circle of Excellence I and Team Elite - 2 Years, for their untiring coaching; their uplines May May Lee and Javy Wong, Blue Diamond Executives, and Pauline Lam, for their unselfish contribution; their downlines from all over the world for their trust; and all their sidelines and other Distributors for their support. Last but not least, the couple's special thanks go to their sister Renee and her husband, Glen, for their persistent love and support. Without them, Gemina and Ron wouldn't have succeeded in obtaining the Team Elite* honor.
