Enjoying Freedom and a More Diverse Life

As a member of the younger generation, Sumsum is a highly active young woman who has a wide range of interests and is always eager to learn new things. She also has different occupations and personas, working as a part-time model, makeup artist, Latin dance teacher and graphic designer. She hopes she can enjoy more free time through the “slash” approach to work – a new model whereby people create multiple income streams simultaneously through different careers.

“Although I have an array of interests, I have not been willing to devote myself to one specific industry and so haven’t achieved an outstanding performance in any of them,” Sumsum said, adding that a freelancer is not able to enjoy a stable income and labour protection. In view of this, Sumsum wanted to find additional protection; she chose to develop the Amway business in order to enjoy a better balance between life and work as well as a more stable financial situation. Sumsum is now able to pursue different interests, face up to challenges and develop her own business thanks to Amway.  

The Pursuit of Affirmation

Sumsum is an energetic and cheerful young woman who aspires to be someone who can excel in all aspects. She works hard to continuously improve herself but has found difficult to receive affirmation from others working in a traditional job. “Mentoring is common in the makeup industry. It takes many years for us to observe and learn and to build a good relationship with others in order to gain the opportunity to perform on stage,” Sumsum shared. 

Conversely, the Amway platform has helped her gain many new opportunities and also build trust and support within the team. “In just a few years I have been invited to perform makeup demonstrations at the Amway Experience Day many times, and to give makeup classes during a cruise trip. I even had the chance to learn personal brand positioning from a professional,” Sumsum smiled. “It feels like I have been able to take up the decathlon in one day! It all depends on being able to find the most suitable platform that can inspire you to perform at your best.”

Showing Appreciation and Tolerance

Life is not a competition with others. Sumsum finds that Amway is a valuable business where she can experience appreciation, support and love within the team, all of which help to make people more connected and bring them closer together. One particular memorable moment for Sumsum was the encouragement she received after a sharing session. “An audience member thanked me for my perseverance and determination which he said had helped him to see hope and provide motivation to improve himself.” Sumsum said she is touched that her own experience has encouraged others to be brave enough to pursue change.

“You can join Amway no matter what your age group, occupation or background. The biggest benefit from Amway is that you can experience a new way of thinking, learning to be humble and to accept, appreciate and respect others.” Sumsum loves her diverse life very much and said she is cherishing her Amway business and having come to understand the importance of having different options in life.

Spreading Joy through Music

There is a saying that one’s personality and character are reflected in the music you love. Stephanie is a shrewd, experienced, generous and communicative person, and her enthusiasm for music is contagious. “As well as being a part-time lecturer at a university, I also teach Chinese flute in primary and secondary schools. I like to take up challenges; I am willing to help others and I feel hopeful about life!” Stephanie said.

“In 2018, I established a charitable Chinese Orchestra. Our target audience is the elderly, and we organize various music events for them. It’s my dream to give performances with my orchestra all over the world, bringing joy and happiness to everyone as well as introducing Chinese music to more people,” she smiled, holding her Chinese flute when she shared her personal story about Chinese music. 

Exploring Potential and Inspiring Others

Stephanie’s belief coincides with Amway’s “helping spirit” and “people-oriented” values. “I have met many young people through the Amway business, and I hope I can help them explore their potential and show their strengths. I’d like to have a positive influence on their lives,” Stephanie shared. 

She added that she has faced various challenges when trying to help the younger generation explore their potential. “On one hand I needed to step out of my comfort zone and integrate myself into their lives, and at the same time I needed to think from their perspective, understand their thoughts and help discover their own strengths. The most important thing is to find them a suitable platform where they can deploy those strengths effectively.” 

Stephanie has also been inspired by her journey in Amway. “In the past, I always aimed to perform at my best, no matter whether it was music or other fields. When I started in Amway, I didn’t know how to help my downlines explore their strengths at first, and sometimes I set standards that were way too high. But as the team got bigger, I learned how to think from others’ perspectives and found different ways to help my partners,” Stephanie explained, adding “there is no perfect individual, only a perfect team. We support and complement each other.”  

Be Considerate and Shine on Stage

The Amway business has enabled Stephanie to pass on her own experience to others. “When I was younger, I just wanted to enjoy a more materialistic life, but now I want to have a positive impact on others. I want to help my partners realize their dreams, as well as to lead my orchestra to benefit more elderly people and create more value for society.” 

In addition to the musical stage, Stephanie is now enjoying another platform – the one provided by Amway – that enables her to sparkle on stage. “Since developing Amway, I’ve been able to help many people improve their health, realize their value and achieve their dream. We should feel grateful that we are able to live such an extraordinary life!”

Persevering and Staying Clam

Donna is a gentle, elegant woman with an impressive spirit of perseverance. Although her life path has not always been smooth, she has endeavored to remain calm when facing up to different challenges. Donna takes the rough with the smooth and has been able to change her life through a positive mindset. 

“I came to Hong Kong a decade ago and all I wanted was to get a stable job. However, it was difficult to stand out in a highly competitive society; and it was not as easy as I imagined starting over again in an unfamiliar environment,” recalled Donna, who has experienced the fact that reality is always not what it seems. Later, Donna got to know the Amway business through her mentor, which gave life a new meaning. She met more mentors and friends who shared the same goal in Amway and Donna’s family became her motivating force. She was determined to work hard to provide greater protection and a better standard of life for herself and her family.

Becoming a Role Model

Donna’s son gave his mother some encouraging words that made her even more determined to achieve better results in the Amway business and make her family proud. “I am a person with amazing determination. I worked hard and kept improving myself as I developed the business. With accumulated experience and a positive and optimistic attitude, I received tremendous support from my team – and that made it easier for me to achieve success,” Donna said. 

In addition to enjoying the life protection she’s received through Amway, Donna aspires to be a role model for her family. She wants to demonstrate a helping spirit and positive mindset in life to others. Previously she only wanted to live and work in peace, but now she wants to realize the greatest value that can make her life more fulfilling. “Every day I’m filled with energy and a strong fighting spirit. Taking the long-term view, I will fight for my family and myself with a firm belief.”

Clarity Determines Your Future

Donna recalled receiving different opinions when she started Amway, but her determination helped her to map out her own roadmap to success through the platform. “Amway has many benefits. It doesn’t take much capital to get established in the business and people within the team are willing to share their experience with you. More importantly, I am able to help my friends improve their health by utilizing the nutrition knowledge I’ve acquired,” Donna shared. 

Looking back on her recent life, Donna feels grateful for what she has achieved. “I took my courage in both hands to come to Hong Kong for a better life. I am so happy that I have regained my confidence and the desire to pursue my goals, enabling me and my friends to show a more beautiful side to others,” Donna beamed, adding that she is approaching her dream step by step. “I didn’t dare to think about my dreams before, but I’ve realised that if you have ambition you are able to inspire others. Never put yourself down; everyone is able to show their greatest value if they put themselves in the right position.”
