A New Choice for Young People

Young people are often labelled as problematic people who give up too easily and are not yet ready to lead. Is this the truth? Or are we underestimating the potential of the younger generation?

Young people who dare to dream and show energy and creativity have the ability to change the perceptions of the older generation, achieving outstanding results and having a positive influence on their peers if they choose the right business platform. In this issue of Amagram, we invite three young Amway Distributors to share with us how they achieve their goals from a fresh perspective by choosing the right path.

Shalom Lam

Current Occupation: University Student

Ruby Direct Distributor

As a university student, Shalom still appears young and a little naive, but she takes on a different look when talking about the Amway business, showing high spirits and appearing more confident and mature. With a clear goal in mind, Shalom made a smart choice for her future when she turned 18.

Self-enhancement and Rapid Personal Growth

“I was reasonably healthy when I was around 16 or 17 years old, but I found my overall health showed a big improvement when my mother’s friend introduced me to Amway’s health supplements. I wanted to share this positive news with others so I joined Amway as soon as I reached the age of 18,” Shalom shared. Back then she was still a shy girl who focused mainly on her studies, and she admits that her introverted character made it hard to share Amway’s products and business opportunity with others.

“Amway is a business platform that enables you to learn continuously and I’ve gained many opportunities to improve my public speaking thanks to Amway. The experience I’ve gained has allowed me to improve in many ways, and I’m grateful to have become more confident and acquired useful communication skills in just 18 months,” Shalom beamed, sharing that she was confident enough to give a speech in Mandarin to more than 2,000 people.

Peer influence plays an important part in young people’s lives, and the Amway business has enabled Shalom to create breakthroughs in her business. “I have met partners of different ages and from different backgrounds in the Amway environment, and I feel blessed to have acquired knowledge from them that I wouldn’t have been able to get through my peers or at school. Having partners who share the same positive mindset has enabled me to face up to different difficulties and challenges.”

Saving Time by Making the Right Choice

Shalom will enter her fourth year at university in the coming school year. “My classmates have started to worry about their careers, but I’m happy that I don’t have to worry as I’m determined to devote myself to the Amway business after I graduate.”

Aware that she would need to sacrifice family time and a freer life working long hours in a traditional job, Shalom said she wants to take control of her own destiny, “so I think it is necessary to make the right choice and set myself a clear direction while I am still young,” she explained.

Shalom has already planned ahead, looking at how to actively develop her Amway business over the next three years. “I am eager to gain future protection and earn a good passive income for my family and myself. I believe if I work hard now, I’ll be able to enjoy a freer and more independent life in the future, at the same time as realizing my dream.”

Enjoying Freedom and Removing Work Constraints

Yu was a student when she first got to know about Amway. “I did not think much about work, my career or the future at that time. I found Amway to be a low-risk business that required minimal capital to get started, but what attracted me the most was that I could earn extra money through developing the business,” said Yu, explaining how she got started in Amway.

In the beginning she saw Amway as a business platform through which she could engage in different activities and make new friends. “I gained more interest in Amway after I graduated and entered the workplace. I was working as a salesperson which required me to work shifts. I really wanted to enjoy more free time, but the job didn’t allow me to arrange my schedule according to my own plan. I soon began to lose my momentum at work.”

She also realized that the sales industry is easily affected by the economic situation, whereas Amway could enable her to build long-term protection. “After giving things serious consideration, I decided to quit my traditional job and develop Amway on a full-time basis. This also gave me take on modelling jobs on a part-time basis.”

Yu Cheng

Current Occupation: Part-time Model

Platinum Distributor

Blessed with a model’s figure and looks, you might imagine that Yu spends most of her time on makeup and grooming – but she actually has a wide range of hobbies and interests that take in sports, hiking, camping and other outdoor activities. Like many young people, Yu wants to enjoy a freer life that enables her to pursue these interests, but that’s not easy to achieve in a Hong Kong workplace where long working hours and a high-pressure working environment are the norm. “I feel content that I can already enjoy my preferred independent way of life, thanks to the strong support from Amway,” she smiled.

Change to Achieve Your Dream

Many people think that today’s younger generation lack passion and ambition, and Yu laughs that she used to have the same belief. “I think it is mainly because young people cannot determine their own direction. However, once their goal is set, young people will keep chasing their goal with determination and ambition,” she said.

Yu feels lucky to have joined the Amway family. “I’m very grateful for the opportunity given by the company and the support of my team which have enabled me to improve my performance and grow. And I feel blessed to have become a role model for new joiners.” She also shared some tips on pursuing a goal. “We should always be eager to try and not reject any opportunities ahead as you may miss out the chance for improvement.”

She said that people don’t need to dream big, and “even a small goal can be our destination. List out your goals and be a positive person who is willing to work hard to realize your dream. Success is on the way if you are willing to change!”

Lillian Lun

Current Occupation: FinTech Consultant

Platinum Distributor

Lillian is often busy in her job as a FinTech consultant, but she still chooses to spend her spare time developing the Amway business. “What I appreciate most about Amway is its ‘1+1’ development model. I can develop my career in traditional workplace at the same time as establishing long-term protection through the Amway platform,” Lillian shared. She explained that this development model is very suitable for younger people who have many ideas or a strong desire to try new things.

Keeping Pace with the Times

Working in the FinTech field has given Lillian a deeper understanding of the power of internet marketing. “It is an opportunity that young people should grasp,” she explained. “Like me, young people want to be their own boss and that is why I joined Amway.”

Lillian also urged young people to think carefully about how they start their business. “The world is changing rapidly, and the traditional business platform has been gradually declining – and will disappear completely one day. A traditional business also requires a lot of capital to get started, which is something young people may not be able to bear.” Conversely, direct selling and the online marketing business need less money to get started and they can offer more flexibility in this fast-changing environment. “I think the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted even more the development potential of the direct selling and online marketing business,” she said.

From Lillian’s perspective, Amway provides Distributors with a free and independent platform that young people are able to develop according to their own plan and pace, at the same time helping them to achieve breakthroughs in this fast-changing world.

Mixing Business with Pleasure

Lillian likes to get the task done in new and creative ways. She felt satisfied when she encountered the Amway business as she needed to use new and different methods to share the wide range of Amway products with different people.

“I believe most young people are innovative and enjoy trying new ways of doing things. In Amway, you can meet new friends from diverse backgrounds and acquire new knowledge – from makeup skills to nutrition – that we seldom get a chance to learn in our daily lives,” Lillian smiled, adding that her team has many young partners who like to gather and run makeup classes together. “The atmosphere is very positive and relaxing as all of us have already integrated Amway into our lives. There is no competitive pressure between us, allowing us to develop the business at our preferred pace.”
