Achieve the extraordinary
Mina and Latifun
Mina shares how he worked hard to make his business soar.
What was your working background?
I used to work in sales and marketing; ten years with Novartis (a Swiss pharmaceutical company), and five years with DHL Express. They were very good jobs, but the roles carried a lot of stress and demanded reaching high targets. I feared imminent redundancy and too much paperwork meant I had no time for family. Therefore, nine years ago, I moved to the UK in search of a better life and future for my children. Initially, life in the UK was tough: for the first six months I struggled to get a job, which was very hard on my family, and when I did eventually secure work, the hours were extremely long. I worked as a customer services officer for British Rail, but I used to leave at 11.30am, when my children were at school, and when I returned at 1.00am they were already asleep.
How did you get involved in Forever?
During this time I was obviously looking for other opportunities, so when one day I saw a leaflet on the counter of a phone shop saying, “Part time work. Full time income,” I called the advertiser, Sanjida (now my upline), straight away. I would like to thank her; without her I would not have discovered Forever.
How has working for Forever benefited you?
Forever has had a dramatic impact on me – it’s changed my life. I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel, and I have quality time for my family. Forever has allowed me the chance to travel the world, buy a house and give my children a brighter future. It’s great to feel in control again.
What words of wisdom can you offer other FBOs?
Forever is definitely a platform which gives ordinary people the opportunity to achieve something extraordinary, but you need to remain focused, plan regular activities and consider everything carefully. Results will inevitably follow.
Passion and determination are also what can drive success; create that burning desire to succeed. Sometimes things might seem too difficult and giving up is the only way, but never give up, your future could change for the better if you just hold on a bit longer. My hard work and passion helped me reach Soaring Manager and it will only get me higher. You can also change your life; just never give up and keep working hard.
What has been your biggest challenge so far?
It was difficult at first because the people around me did not know what network marketing was, and I knew I had to help them to understand. Since most people are afraid of the unknown, I would mentally prepare myself to be turned down when approaching potential prospects. But I wouldn’t just leave it at a no. Instead, I’d work on them until it became a yes. My strong belief, effort and persistency enabled me to reach this point.
What are your future goals?
I aspire to grow and develop my business around the world; I already have 5,000 FBO’s back home in Bangladesh but I want to create as many Managers as I can within my team. I also want to introduce many more people to Forever and help them to benefit and achieve their goals as well. But most of all I want to pass my knowledge of eight years on to my children, giving them the chance to be successful.
It has been an incredible journey and I would like to thank Rex Maughan, and also Bob Parker who has led the United Kingdom to number one. I am very grateful to my upline, Mohammad, as without his support I could not have achieved this position. Finally, I would like to give my heartfelt thanks to my entire team who are constantly working hard – they are all fantastic people who have helped contribute to our success. Thank you.
