HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT SOPHIE PARIS AND OUR PRODUCTS?
I found out about Sophie Paris through a Magic Pink Cream review on Facebook. It piqued my interest because it mentioned that local artists use it so I searched where I could buy the product. I came upon my sponsor’s page Ms. Karleen Jaro and she directed me to Sophie Paris Alabang where I met our ever supportive BC owner Ms. Ronalyn Guntang.
WHAT ENCOURAGED YOU TO PURSUE A SOPHIE BUSINESS?
I was just starting to build my online business when I became a Sophie member but it was only a side hustle since I had a full time job. When my business started to grow, I decided to quit my job to focus on it. That’s when Sophie Paris fully came to the picture. I originally intended only to sell Sophie Paris’ best seller, the Magic Pink Cream, but found out that everything else was just as good! Not only does it swear by its effective and quality products, Sophie Paris also gave us many ways to earn through its business scheme.
HOW WAS THE START OF YOUR SOPHIE JOURNEY?
At first, I did not think Sophie products would be as lucrative as other products that I sell online. But surprisingly, within my first joining month,
I got promoted as Junior Franchisee and received my first recognition as Best in Sales and Best in Recruitment! I was also able to attend the Winner’s Night: Black & White Affair at Dusit Thani, Manila and won the Best in OOTD online contest, thanks to the 1.4K likes I received and the support from all the Leaders of Sophie Paris Alabang. All that I have experienced here in Sophie Paris were very memorable and I will treasure those moments for the rest of my life.
WHAT WERE YOUR INITIAL FEARS AND CHALLENGES AND HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?
Fear is nothing more than a lingering emotion that’s fueled by our own imagination. Fear is a choice. It’s truly fascinating how successful people approach challenges. Where other see impenetrable barriers, I see challenges to embrace and obstacles to overcome.
When I went full time on my online and direct selling business, I was afraid that business would only be good for a certain time. I doubted whether quitting my job for something uncertain was worth it. As time went by, I realized that this is what I want to be doing in the long run. It’s only a matter of remembering WHY and FOR WHOM I started it for. I learned that in order to overcome hardships, you must let go of the negativity that holds you back. Don’t ever hold back in life just because you feel scared.
DO YOU FEEL THAT SOPHIE WAS ABLE TO DEVELOP YOU PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY?
Definitely YES! I really feel that those whom I have met so far and those who have been continuously mentoring me during my Sophie Paris journey greatly contributed to my skills, knowledge and business know-hows today. I have grown both as a person and a businesswoman after joining Sophie Paris. Attending catalog launches, trainings, Leader’s Meetings, watching webinars and other Sophie Paris events really helped me become the leader that I am today.
HOW HAS SOPHIE HELPED YOU ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS AND HOW HAS IT AFFECTED YOUR LIFE?
Being within this circle gave me a lot of opportunities. Not only did it give me ways and means to earn but it also enabled me to engage in other endeavors while not sacrificing my most precious time with my family. My dream of being a businesswoman was granted through the Sophie Paris business opportunity. This is for lifetime. Thank you so much, Sophie!
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT SOPHIE? WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO SUCCEED?
Sophie gives us everything, from the rebates, freebies, awards and recognitions, and the learnings through our Sophie journey. It’s not about all the material things I gained but the success I earned.
Every aspect of my life motivates me to strive more for my dreams.My family is the reason why I want to be successful. My partner in life, Ian San Pedro, motivates me to achieve my goals and aspirations, and to be the best version of myself. He helps me become a better, stronger, and more determined woman. Lastly, I am motivated by my downlines because they look up to me and I want to set an example to them. I want to prove to them that anything is possible and they can reach their dreams too, if they are determined. I want to show them that everything is obtainable if you work for it. Just pray to our Lord and trust His process.
DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS YOU WANT TO SHARE TO OTHER SOPHIE MEMBERS WHO ASPIRE TO BECOME SOPHIE LEADERS?
Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the building of personality beyond its normal limitations. IF YOU WANT IT, MAKE IT HAPPEN. (1) Inspire yourself first then inspire others to work with you. (2) Never stop improving. Great leaders are constantly learning and always trying to improve themselves. (3) Be ready to face challenges and stay passionate, curious and committed to learning something new. (4) Be grateful and always put God first in everything you do. If you’re praying about it, God is working on it. (5)And remember: “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”
WHAT IS YOUR SOPHIE GOAL THIS 2020?
Last year, I was only dreaming and imagining how it would be like to be featured in the “In the Spotlight” section. I didn’t think it would become reality this soon! Just like everyone in this business, I want my network to grow and connect with people who are like-minded. This way, we can grow together as a family financially, personally and professionally. I am aiming for the highest position, Executive Franchisee. I know and I believe I can make it. Nothing and no one can stop me from reaching my goals. Thank you Lord for everything. Thank you for allowing me to be part of the Sophie family.
