Leader in the Spotlight: Karleen Livelo Jaro

Find out how embracing change and using it to one's advantage gave this leader a renewed passion for her Sophie business and used it to positively influence the lives of others.

NAME: Karleen Livelo Jaro
AGE: 46 Years Old
*Member since October 2012
"DRIVEN. FOCUSED. MOTIVATED."

HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT SOPHIE PARIS AND OUR PRODUCTS?
The pink SOPHIE logo caught my attention when my friend and I dropped by a mall. I was interested with just one wallet but I got even more interested when I learned that MEMBERS get 30% discount on all items. I wasn’t able to buy the wallet but I registered as a member. My friend also signed up and she became my first recruit. I was so excited to share my catalog with my family and friends and guess what? I was able to buy the wallet that I really liked and its matching SAS bag without spending money! How? With my earnings from all the orders I got!

WHAT ENCOURAGED YOU TO PURSUE A SOPHIE BUSINESS?
When I got my Starter Kit, I read all the information in the member manual. The marketing plan is the reason I decided to do the business because it says that when you become a Sophie Leader you will earn more and more as your level progresses. That same month, I qualified as a Junior Franchisee and at that very moment, I saw the big picture and thought of a few people who needed extra income whom I can help through the Sophie business. So I attended Sophie Business opportunity meetings over and over again until I mastered it.

HOW WAS THE START OF YOUR SOPHIE JOURNEY?
I enjoy being part of Sophie because I get rewards month after month on top of the extra income from my rebates and bonuses.I can say that it was never hard for me to recruit or sell because I like to share my own experiences as a Sophie member & Leader. I remember recruiting 2 waitresses who had tears of joy running down their cheeks when they first received their earnings from selling Sophie bags. They eventually got promoted to Junior Franchisees and I was so happy for them. I prayed to God that if it is His will to make Sophie as an instrument I can use to help others, then so be it. He gave me the wisdom and everything I need to run my Sophie business. 

WHAT WERE YOUR INITIAL FEARS AND CHALLENGES & HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?
Some people assume Sophie is just selling and nothing more. Even more frustrating are the people who judge because they think that direct selling is just for people who badly need money. But I did not mind the negative comments. I stayed focused and became even more passionate. I kept this in mind: If one person says no, then no problem! Who’s next? ;) 

DO YOU FEEL THAT SOPHIE WAS ABLE TO DEVELOP YOU PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY?
Definitely! Sophie Paris is a business with people you know or may not know but because Sophie has a unique system, I feel we all belong in one Sophie Family.  All the rewards, awards, and appreciation I received from the company – BEST RECRUIT, BEST GROUP SALES, TOP GROUP RECRUIT (SOUTHERN TAGALOG) to name a few – are results of my handwork. I am inspired to continue because I know that I help others earn extra money that they need. All the knowledge and experiences I gained from my members, my leaders, my RSM/ASM, my sponsor and former BC74-Imus owner Violeta Bautista, and other business owners made me into the leader that I am today.

HOW HAS SOPHIE HELPED YOU ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS AND HOW HAS IT AFFECTED YOUR LIFE?
I never expected that the bonuses & rebates can be as big as I want. I learned that I get to decide how much I want to earn. Before, the income I get from Sophie Paris covered our monthly groceries and other home needs but it eventually no longer became just about money but more on helping others. In God’s grace, our savings now remain intact and we have even more to save for the future that includes our children’s education expenses.

WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT SOPHIE? WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO SUCCEED?
I am always excited for the new members! Sophie Paris enhanced the marketing plan, added more rewards, and programs and made it even easier to qualify. I am sure there’s more to come! My team of 700 members continue to grow & I want them to experience all these that’s why I give them my full support. These people motivate me to succeed and I want them to see the BIG picture I saw since the day I signed up. I look forward to even more and more blessings for I am now considered as a new Sub Center which means, I can help more people. Hooray!

DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS YOU WANT TO SHARE TO OTHER SOPHIE MEMBERS WHO ASPIRE TO BECOME SOPHIE LEADERS?
Sophie Paris offers great earning possibilities. You need to know your WHY, WHAT, WHO, HOW and WHEN. Why do you need Sophie? What is the desire of your heart? What do you want to achieve & for whom? How will you do it and when do you need to reach your goal? Once you know the answers, PLAN and put it into action. There’s a saying that “If you fail to plan, you are preparing to fail” and it’s true.

You also have to equip yourself. Study the marketing plan and teach your new recruits as soon as they sign up. Help them to earn & experience the Sophie success because that’s the reason they joined in the first place. Their success story is instrumental for them when they recruit and sell so strategize with them and with their success, yours will follow.

Last & most important of all is to always put God first & pray for your plan to succeed.

WHAT IS YOUR SOPHIE GOAL THIS 2019?
I am now a DIAMOND FRANCHISEE and a new Sub Center which is a big milestone in my Sophie Journey. I know in God’s perfect time I will be able to reach my goal to be promoted as Executive Franchisee. My goal is to help more people start their Sophie business. I aim to reach those who signed up years ago and update them on how easier it is to earn NOW with the enhanced marketing plan. I want to help them embrace our digital transformation through e-Sophie & I want to inform them that I am still here as a servicing Sub Center offering assistance to make their business easier.

Leader in the Spotlight: Ronabhel Laher

Learn how dreaming big and believing in yourself became instrumental in the continued success of this young Sophienista!

NAME: Ronabhel Laher
*Member since April 2019
"Creative. Fashionista. Achiever."

HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT SOPHIE PARIS?
I discovered Sophie through social media when I ordered Magic Pink Cream online. After I tried the product, I was amazed with its natural pinkish glow and it really works like magic. Walang hulas ang ganda! Because of that, I thought of starting a business with Sophie. 

WHAT ENCOURAGED YOU TO PURSUE A SOPHIE BUSINESS?
I'm a business minded person but I make sure that I use the products before I recommend and sell them. I was really amazed when I tried Sophie’s products because they are classy, elegant & affordable. I don't like wearing make-up but when I started using Sophie cosmetics, it made me more beautiful and gave me self-confidence. I am also a fashionista and I think the Sophie Business fits my personality. 

HOW WAS THE START OF YOUR SOPHIE JOURNEY?
It was awesome! I decided to sign up last April 24, 2019 and became a Junior Franchisee in a span of 6 days! A lot of women showed interest to join Sophie as a result of my Facebook video using the Magic Pink Cream. We immediately created a group chat to welcome our new Sophienistas and called it "SOPHIE TEAM BFV" (Bhim's Fashion Vibes). In my first month as a member, I was promoted twice as SILVER and GOLD FRANCHISEE. I had 6 direct downlines who eventually became Franchisees too! I was also awarded as TOP GROUP SALES PRODUCER & BEST IN RECRUITMENT. I worked hard to qualify for the SLC STAR 1 from January to June 2019 by attaining the program accumulation and I was again promoted last July as DIAMOND FRANCHISEE. I’m thankful to have met our Sophie Paris Cainta Business Center Owner Ms. Nancy Consignado. Because of my eagerness and passion, she immediately motivated and inspired me. We enjoy working with her because she's a cool mentor with a good heart. Likewise, I am thankful for my lovely and gorgeous sponsor, Ms. Jen Maramot, for introducing me to Sophie Paris.

WHAT WERE YOUR INITIAL FEARS AND HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?
Fear of saying NO. As an entrepreneur, you have to be sure that the work you’re taking on is helping you build something bigger and aligns with your core mission. It's tempting to take every project & pursue every lead when you're just starting your business.  But if you stretch yourself too thin, you won't do any of it well. It's ok to say NO, so you can say YES to the right things. 

HOW WAS SOPHIE ABLE TO DEVELOP YOU PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY?
I've learned 3 things as a Leader:
LEARN TO FOLLOW. A true Leader has no problem yielding control to another person when needed. Don’t feel threatened when someone disagrees, questions, or puts forth ideas of their own. Keep an open mind, value and respect your team & they'll be more likely to step up to the plate for you. 

INSPIRE OTHERS. Motivate and inspire others to collaborate as best they can. When a team member needs encouragement & guidance, offer it. Sometimes, all a person needs is someone who listens and sympathizes. 

KEEP LEARNING AND GROWING. Keep learning new things to keep your mind sharp, your skills fresh, and prime you for new challenges that may come your way. 

HOW DID SOPHIE HELP YOU ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS AND HOW DID IT AFFECT YOUR LIFE?
I met many amazing new people, found a team & a new family. My family inspires and encourages me to be the best. With my first rebates last June, I used it for my son's education expenses as well as cover utility bills. Sophie also gave me additional capital for my ukay-ukay business. I have learned the importance of grit, passion and resilience.
I have proven that I can make good decisions and build a successful business without compromising the quality of life that I enjoy. 

DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS YOU WANT TO SHARE TO OTHER SOPHIE MEMBERS WHO ASPIRE TO BECOME LEADERS?
The first step towards being a good Leader is to have the desire to take the lead. Inspire yourself first then inspire others. I would like to share my 5 steps to achieve my goal: DREAM. Dare to dream of the possibilities for yourself, your family, and for others. If you have a dream that you let grow cold, re-ignite it. Fan the flames. Life is too short to let it go. BELIEVE. Your dream needs to be big but it also must be believable. You must be able to say that despite its bigness, if others help & you work hard, it can be done. PLAN. The saying "YOU GET WHAT YOU PLAN FOR" is true. Sit down and strategize. Think through the details, break it down into small, workable parts, and set a time frame for each task on your dream plan. WORK FOR IT. Successful people are hardworkers. You have to work on it each day and you will eventually achieve your dream. ENJOY THE JOURNEY! Reward yourself along the way. Help others enjoy it. Be gracious and generous. Use your dream to better others. I promise you, your life can be better! 

WHAT IS YOUR SOPHIE GOAL THIS 2019?
I look forward to end the year with a big bang. Like what they say, "Dream Big". Dream, believe in yourself, work for it, and you will get what you want. I am now a DIAMOND FRANCHISEE with close to 500 team members and we are working on our road to 1,000 members before the year ends. I also aim to be promoted as EXCUTIVE FRANCHISEE and to qualify as SLC AMBASSADOR 4. Last and most importantly, our goal is for our Team BFV Sophienistas to enjoy continued success with the guidance and the direction of our servicing Business Center BC312 Cainta and the leadership of Ms.Nancy Consignado.

Leader in the Spotlight: Cherryl Pagayon

This super mommy proves that faith, hard work, and perseverance are essential ingredients to a successful Sophie business.

NAME: Cherryl Pagayon
*Member since May 2018
"Family lover. Madiskarte. Super Mom."


HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT SOPHIE PARIS AND OUR PRODUCTS?
I found out about the amazing products of Sophie Paris and the business opportunity from Ma’am Conchita Sucaldito who is an active member of Sophie Paris Pagadian. I got intereseted because of the broad design choices in the catalog and I look forward to the unique new styles every month. What amazes me the most is the durability of the products. It exceeds my expectations!

WHAT ENCOURAGED YOU TO PURSUE A SOPHIE BUSINESS?
I was encouraged to be a member because of the profits & potential income. Of course all entrepreneurs start their business because of the income they can earn to help their family financially. I am a mother of 4 children and I sometimes experience financial struggles since my eldest daughter is in senior high school. Studying in University has a lot of expenses and Sophie Paris helps me provide for the education of my children.

HOW WAS THE START OF YOUR SOPHIE JOURNEY?
At first, I struggled with getting customers and recruiting new members. But with the big help and motivation of my two amazing mentors, BC Pagadian Owners Ma’am Lady and Ma’am Vangie, I learned a lot on how to build my business. They are generous in sharing ideas on how to sell and how to recruit through the trainings they conduct. They even visit me at my place to personally help me in building my network.

It was last June 2019 when we conducted our first Grand Members’ Gathering which I thought at first walang mag-a-attend. But with Gods grace, we had almost a hundred attendees and most of them became Sophie members. Their passion in this bussiness motivates me more in doing this business. 

WHAT WERE YOUR INITIAL FEARS AND HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?
The initial fear and challenge as a Sophienista is, of course, REJECTION. Even though it’s normal to experience rejection in all businesses, it still scares you and can lead you to doubt yourself and your ability to become successful. But I was able to overcome my fear with the help of my husband who is also my greatest supporter. He always told me that as an entrepreneur, in order for a business to succeed, we should take risks and have courage to do things that other people say we can’t.

DO YOU FEEL THAT SOPHIE WAS ABLE TO DEVELOP YOU PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY?
Yes, Sophie Paris helped me overcome my personal fears. Professionally, I learned to understand my customers and their needs, and I am able to adjust to them. Being recognized and awarded during Sophie events also added to my confidence. Even if it’s just a certificate, it makes me proud because I know that my hard work is being recognized and valued. It also bring happiness in our family since they know that I love what I do.

HOW HAS SOPHIE HELPED YOU ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS AND HOW HAS IT AFFECTED YOUR LIFE?
I am proud to say that I am an undergraduate. I was not able to pursue my course due to personal circumstances. As an undergrad, I was not given the opportunity to work in an office or to get an average salary. But Sophie helped me achieve my dreams of becoming succesful by earning money through hard work and not based on my educational background. I have achieved my dream to be able to help my family in their needs despite not having attained higher education.I am also thankful because I am teaching my children that hard work and preserverance make things possible.

WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT SOPHIE? WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO SUCCEED?
I always look forward to the monthly events and gatherings where members are given rewards & rebates because I am able to meet different hardworking people from different places. It’s very inspiring because these people never give up especially if it’s for the people they love. At the end of the day, it’s not all about money but the happiness that we are able to bring to the people we love thanks to Sophie. 

DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS YOU WANT TO SHARE TO OTHER SOPHIE MEMBERS WHO ASPIRE TO BECOME SOPHIE LEADERS?
First, you must believe in yourself. Always believe that you can do it because the more you believe that you can overcome any challenges that will come your way, the bigger the chance for you to be able to achieve your goals. Second, keep in mind that all thing are possible with love and passion for the the work you do, especially if you put God first.

WHAT IS YOUR SOPHIE GOAL THIS 2019?
I put my trust to the plan of the Lord for His plans are higher than my plans. All I have to do is pray, to be more passionate, to share more, and set an example. In order to be successful, my #Sophiegoal2019 is to help others achieve their dreams through the Sophie Paris business by inviting them and encouraging them to achieve more. Because helping someone grow is a way of achieving success and true happiness.

This leader proves that dreams really do come true when you focus and work hard to achieve it.

Name: Melanie Villanueva
Diamond Franchisee
*Member since 2014
"STRONG. KINDHEARTED. FIGHTER.”


How did you find out about Sophie Paris and what encouraged you to pursue a Sophie Business?
I learned about Sophie Paris when it was introduced to me by my workmate. I started as a consumer. I decided to pursue a Sophie business because I wanted to earn extra income.

How was the start of your Sophie journey? What were your fears and how did you overcome them?
I’m glad to share that the start of my Sophie business was great! I received a lot of orders because my customers already know the brand. At first, I was really afraid to be rejected, or worse be completely ignored. But I was able to overcome that by studying the business, the marketing plan, and the features of every product. This gave me more confidence when offering the products. Plus, I was able to make it easier for my customers to purchase because I deliver the products to them.

How did Sophie help you achieve your dreams and how did it affect your life?
Sophie developed me personally and professionally thanks to the regular orientations, meetings, Beauty Academy trainings and catalog launches held by our kindhearted BC Sta. Rosa Owner, Ma’am Jocelyn Morales. I gained a lot of new friends while helping them earn extra income, enhancing their knowledge about the Sophie business, and helping them develop into leaders as well.

Sophie also helped me financially by enabling me to provide my family’s basic needs. And best of all, Sophie made it possible for me to achieve my dream of traveling abroad! Thanks to Sophie Paris, I’ll be going on an all-expense paid Asian Cruise, plus pocket money pa! I feel proud that out of the many Sophie Leaders nationwide, I am one of the lucky few to be given the chance to join the cruise with some of the Top BC Owners of Sophie Paris Philippines. :)

What excites and motivates you to succeed?
What’s exciting about Sophie Paris is its generosity to its members. Sophie offers a lot of promos, freebies, lovely rewards, and of course, the opportunity to travel abroad.

Do you have any tips you want to share to other Sophie members who aspire to become leaders?
A few tips that I always share with others are, first and foremost, in everything that you do, always seek for God’s guidance. Be determined, madiskarte, and sabayan ng sipag at tiyaga. Focus on your goals and put your heart into everything that you do until you finally achieve your dreams.

What is your Sophie 2019 goal?
My Sophie Goal this 2019 is to hit my SLC targets and qualify again!

Leader in the Spotlight: Divine Mamuad

Be inspired by this self-driven stay-at-home mom who has found fulfillment in her Sophie business!

NAME: Divine Mamuad
Gold Franchisee
*Member Since July 2019
“OPTIMISTIC. GOAL-ORIENTED. FASHIONISTA.”

 

How did you find out about Sophie Paris?
A friend asked me to try Sophie lipsticks and I chose Soft Matte Lip Color Navajo. It was a “love-at-first-glide” moment! I loved its texture and color so much that I posted it on my Facebook and a lot of my friends asked where they can buy it and how much it costs. So the idea to join and sell it myself came to mind. On my joining month, I was able to sell 25 pcs of Sophie Soft Matte Navajo lipsticks!

What encouraged you to pursue a Sophie Business?
I decided to pursue my Sophie business when I started earning just by using social media. My online selling business started and I learned that Facebook can also be used as a source of income. I was able to reconnect with friends and help them have their own business as well. On my second month, I got promoted to Junior franchisee and I discovered that aside from the 30% commission, I can also earn rebates, royalty bonus, and get gifts & freebies every time I hit the target sales. It’s fulfilling to know that I can earn while staying at home. This is a great opportunity for every housewife who wants to help their spouse with finances.

How was the start of your Sophie journey?
It was really fun and a no-sweat-job for me because it fits me. Trying different lipsticks is just a perk. I was able to save gifts for friends and relatives for Christmas and my love for fashion made my marketing strategy easy. I didn’t even realize that it’s already my first year anniversary as a member! Truly if you enjoy the things you do, you won’t notice time pass by. :)

What were your fears and how did you overcome them?
Honestly, I didn’t fear anything. I am aware that businesses have ups and downs, we just have to be prepared for every circumstances that may occur during our journey. Having a strong foundation helps. I have trusted friends and partners, and found new friends in Sophie who believe and trust me. Plus, having my family beside me gives me the strength to face all challenges. Being part of Sophie gives me the opportunity to shine and re-explore my passion for fashion while still having time to be a mother and a wife.

How was Sophie able to develop you personally?
I really think that Sophie enhanced my love for fashion and my leadership skills through the trainings and team building activities. Sophie also helped me boost my confidence and communication skills by giving me the opportunity to speak in front of an audience to share tips and inspire others.

How did Sophie help you achieve your dreams and how did it affect your life?
Sophie helped me discover a new side of me. I never thought that I could manage a business and it gave me more confidence especially when dealing with other people. It’s a great feeling when someone becomes comfortable talking to you because you have gained their trust and they eventually join your team later on.  

Sophie also changed my life financially. Many people say that having a single source of income is no longer advisable nowadays. Before, I would just wait for my husband’s salary and budget it until the next cut-off. But since I joined Sophie, I can now contribute to our expenses. It’s very fulfilling to be a hands-on and stay-at-home mom and be able to earn and buy things for my family without worrying too much about our finances. We were even able to travel thanks to my earnings! Isn’t that amazing?

What excites and motivates you to succeed?
One of the things that excite and motivate me is Sophie’s monthly promos because my team and I enjoy the challenge of reaching the target sales and encouraging each other to qualify for the promos. I am also motivated to succeed because of my family, my team, and my upline. I want them to be proud of me and I want to inspire them as well. I envision our team to reach our goals, become successful Sophienistas, make a name for ourselves in this line of business, and be an inspiration to others, especially to all stay-at-home-moms. I want them to know their worth and that they can do more even while they are at home.

Do you have any tips you want to share to other Sophie members who aspire to become leaders?
My advice is to keep motivated. Focus on their goal. Never compare your success to others because everyone has their own path. Develop your communication skills, which is most important when entering sales. Keep asking the guidance of the Lord and He will always provide. And don’t forget to enjoy!

What is your Sophie 2019 goal?
My #StrongSophie2019 goal is to build a stronger and more motivated team. I hope to be able to establish a Business Center (BC) and have a wider network. Though it may be a bit too early for me to be a BC but I’m setting it as my goal for my own motivation. I also aim to travel abroad with my family and my team. :)

Leader in the Spotlight: Ruel Cruz

Find out how this proud Sophienista dad found himself managing a business that largely caters to women!

Name: Ruel Cruz
Age:     33 Years old
*Leader from BC Kapasigan
“PERSISTENT. DRIVEN. BELIEVER.” 


How did you find out about Sophie Paris?
My wife introduced me to Sophie Paris. She was just a consumer at first, then she eventually became a member. I saw how she earned extra income by selling Sophie products.

What encouraged you to pursue a Sophie business?
I decided to become a member when my wife invited me to go on a date. We went to KFC where a Sophie Catalog launching was being held. At first, I refused to go because almost all the attendees were women. But since I promised my wife, I had no choice. Plus, it was a date. In the said event, I met Ms. Eloisa Castor, the Owner BC Kapasigan. She discussed the member benefits, the member levels, and the rebates. I saw the potential of this kind of business and I had many questions that Mam Eloisa entertained. That same day, I decided to become a member.

How was the start of your Sophie journey?
I was lucky when my wife was offered the opportunity to continue the operations of the Sophie store in Tuktukan, Taguig. I agreed to manage the said store since my wife had a regular job. It was challenging at first, especially for me since Sophie products are mostly for women. I remember a funny experience when a customer asked for my opinion on what lipstick shade would look good on her and I had no idea what to answer! I called my wife and she laughed at my dilemma.

What were your initial fears and how did you over­come them?
The start of any business is always uncertain and there’s always the fear of “What if I don’t succeed?” But I learned to focus on our business and study it. READ, LEARN, AND EARN. I always attend Members’ Orientations, and SLC Trainings to learn more. I learned a lot about the Sophie business through the B.O.S.S. I read and study the guidelines so I can discuss them to my customers and encourage them to be a Sophie Member.

How has Sophie helped you achieve your dreams and aspirations and how has it affected your life?
Sophie helped me develop into a leader. My dream was to operate and have my own business. Sophie helped me achieve that dream and at the same time, it gave me the freedom of time. Wala akong boss. I just communicate with my members thru text or messenger. Time is important to all of us and having my own business allows me to have more time for my family and to do Church duty. God first before anything else! These are the reasons why I will continue to work harder on my Sophie business.

What excites you about Sophie? What motivates you to succeed?
My family is the answer to all of my biggest WHY?’s: Why should I continue? Why should I succeed? Even in hard times, my family is what motivates me to move forward. On top of that, the incentives that Sophie gives their  hardworking members, having more ways to earn, and being given opportunities to help others develop their leadership skills are also very motivating for me.

Do you have any tips you want to share to other Sophie Members who aspire to become Sophie Leaders?
If you want to be a leader you must be a good follow­er. Walang magaling na leader kung walang magaling na downline.

What is your Sophie goal this 2019?
More Sophie Stores (BC or Sub Center)  with my business partner Mam Merle Tulayan (BC operator of SOPHIE-ROSARIO).

Leader in the Spotlight: Noemi Fernando

Be inspired by how this mom was able to achieve the perfect balance for her family, her business, and her personal growth.

NAME:            Noemie Fernando
Age:                 36 years old
*Member since September 2018
“FAMILY LOVER. MADISKARTE. SUPER MOM.” 


How did you find out about Sophie Paris and our products?
I first heard of Sophie Paris back in 2005 and I remem­ber buying and using the products, but I never had the interest of becoming a member. On September 2018, I bought a Sophie bag from a friend for personal use and she invited me to become a member. My friend also started introducing Sophie to other possible recruits and upon seeing this, I started to like the idea of recruiting members to be part of the wonderful world of Sophie, which ultimately led me to become a Sophienista.

What encouraged you to pursue a Sophie Business?
There’s something in Sophie that pushed me to become an entrepreneur. Seeing your recruits have a business of their own by selling our high-quality products that are well-loved by many, and experiencing how recognition is generously given to efforts and achievements encour­aged me even more to introduce the business to other people and pursue a Sophie business.

How was the start of your Sophie journey?
It was great! I started as a consumer and small dealer of Sophie products. Upon meeting our Sophie Paris Zamboanga Business Center Owner, Ma’am Carissa, she immediately motivated and inspired me to start a business with Sophie, to which I gladly followed. With my eagerness and passion, I became a Junior Franchisee on my first month of being a member, and later I also became a Silver Franchisee.

What were your initial fears and challenges and how did you overcome them?
People would turn me down. I believe that one of the challenges is when people doubt you and the Sophie business which will eventually lead them to reject you. “You can never please everyone,” that is what I always tell myself. If others won’t believe you and what you do, then accept it. Negativity will never lead to anything good. If you ever experience refusal from other people, accept it and don’t let such negativity get the best of you!

Do you feel that Sophie was able to develop you personally and professionally?
Sophie did not only help me grow professionally as an entrepreneur but it also helped me to be the person that I am now. Recruiting new members, selling products online and live, and being recognized by Sophie as a great influencer and leader molded me into a flexible and strategic entrepreneur. This made me realize that even as a housewife I can become successful and I can inspire other moms to become successful too. Participating actively and enthusiastically in Sophie Pink Tent events made me become a better public speaker. I may not speak English fluently but I can share the world of Sophie to others through such events.

How has Sophie helped you achieve your dreams and aspirations and how has it affected your life?
Before meeting Sophie Paris, I was ready to teach in TESDA, the salary of­fer was fair enough. I thought that in the long run, such job will make me miss out on my family and I wanted to have time for them and bond with them. Fortunately, Sophie helped me achieve this dream! I still work but Sophie does not demand me to give all my time to them – I still get to spend more time with my family. Also, having a Sophie business opened my eyes to new fashion trends (i.e., bags, makeup, etc.), and I gladly embraced such change! I also get to inspire my members, friends, family, and fellow moms and affect positive change in their lives.

What excites you about Sophie? What motivates you to succeed?
Everything! Aside from the rewards, the opportunity to meet different kinds of people with different backgrounds excite me because this means that I get to share Sophie with more people. Sophie never fails to make me feel appreciated. The feeling of having a package delivered to my doorstep is always exciting and unreal, it feels like a dream! My family, especially my loving husband, is always there to motivate me and support every endeavor I wish to take. The eagerness and enthusiasm of my mem­bers to introduce Sophie to others also keeps me going; they remind me that Sophie needs to be shared to everyone. 

Do you have any tips you want to share to other Sophie Members who aspire to become Sophie Leaders?
Never compare yourself to others but let their achievements, hard work, enthusiasm and passion inspire you. Through hard work and your own ability, you can achieve just as much. Always remember if it’s meant for you, it will happen and your hard work will all pay off if you just have faith and trust in the Lord.

What is your Sophie goal this 2019?
Since joining Sophie, I have been God’s instrument in sharing the won­derful world of Sophie to others by inspiring and motivating people to work hard to achieve success. As a certified Sophienista, I aim to continue to be a great influencer and leader, so that someday a network of leaders will remind everyone that anyone can be successful through effort, enthu­siasm, and passion in Sophie! #StrongSophie2019

How did you find out about Sophie Paris and our products?
I first heard about Sophie Paris back in high school and I remember I saved up for a sling bag worth 499 which I still use up until college. Then after 11 years, a friend introduced me to our instant bloomer product, the Sophie Magic Pink Cream which I grew very fond of. This led to my rediscovery of Sophie Paris and me becoming a certified Sophienista.

What encouraged you to pursue a Sophie Business?
I have been offered other business opportunities but I was only able to see myself with Sophie Paris. The brand was able to capture my heart! On top of that, the excellent product quality and trendy designs were great encouragement for me to pursue a Sophie business because they are very easy to sell. Having a very accommodating and understanding Business Center, BC Abulug, and having my happy and loving SOPHIE with CINDI members, also keep me motivated to continue pursuing my Sophie Business. Their trust and belief in my leadership combined with the amazing support of my family and my boyfriend, Neil, fuel my passion further and encourage me to keep on going.

How was the start of your Sophie journey?
It was fun! On my fi rst meeting with our Area Sales Manager (ASM), I actually bought 100 Starter Kits! I am really determined to share this wonderful business. With my enthusiasm, I became a Silver Franchisee on my first month, Gold Franchisee on my 2nd month and Diamond Franchisee on my third month! Also, only Sophie Paris made me post and sell products online which never in my wildest dreams did I think of doing before.

What were your initial fears and challenges and how did you overcome them?
Rejection. I believe that the hardest challenge that you’ll ever meet is rejection. I have shed a lot of tears and heartaches not only at the start but throughout my Sophie journey. It may be hard but the satisfaction you get after overcoming challenges is priceless. So if you ever experience rejection or failure, just pray, stand up and fight again!

Do you feel that Sophie was able to develop you personally and professionally?
Everything I did and still do for my Sophie business help me grow not only as an entrepreneur but as the person I want to become. Recruitment activities make me more versatile in dealing with different people. Online selling and live Sophie promotions gave me room to be more creative and discover strategies on how to please the market. And my most favorite activity, the catalogue launching, inspires me because I get to award achievers from previous months. These activities add to my determination because they show the results of our hardships and I am very eager to share the success with my sissies, memshies, and madams (how I call my recruits).

How has Sophie helped you achieve your dreams and aspirations and how has it affected your life?
Before I met Sophie Paris, I was managing a plant shop and a coconut business. Being in the field means a lot of sun, dust and sweat, which made me somehow dream of a glamorous business where I get to look fabulous. Luckily, Sophie helped me make that dream come true! I still work in the farm but now with fashion – I always look fab thanks to my favorite Sophie lipstick and Magic Pink! Also, since having a Sophie business, I was able to widen my network, gain a lot of friends and meet a lot of acquaintances. I also believe that the instant glow from my favorite Magic Pink helped me exude more confidence and led me to find myself in a good relationship.

What excites you about Sophie? What motivates you to succeed?
Everything about Sophie actually thrills me! Aside from the profit, Sophie is very generous in recognizing your achievements, no matter how big or small they may be. Sophie provides rewards and prizes for every effort. I love how it feels when I order via e-Sophie and receive my purchases in a package. It feels like I just received a gift or a balikbayan box, the happiness is surreal.

Do you have any tips you want to share to other Sophie Members who aspire to become Sophie Leaders?
Don’t ever compare your achievements to others. Focus on your goals, work on it and strengthen your faith and trust in God. I assure you it pays off.

What is your Sophie goal this 2019?
When I joined Sophie and saw all the achievers and leaders’ testimonials, I promised to myself to someday be featured in Sophie Paris too! With God’s grace and the brilliant Sophie Paris team, I have reached my goal too soon! But I will not just stop there. I aim to continue influencing and growing my network so that someday, we will be painting not only the Philippines but the world with pink! #StrongSophie2019

Leader in the Spotlight: Rochelle Cruz

Leader in the Spotlight: Rochelle Cruz

Meet our "raketera" single mom from Alabang whose passion for fashion and pure motherly love paved the way to a successful Sophie business.

NAME: Rochelle Cruz
AGE:   42 Years Old
*Member since 2017
“SUPER WOMAN. RAKETERA. FASHIONISTA.”

What encouraged you to pursue a Sophie Business? 
The first Sophie event I attended was a launching of the August 2017 Catalog where I met the BC owner, Ms. Ron­alyn Guntang. Hearing their Sophie success stories, witnessing how Sophienistas are doing, and seeing the actual Sophie products were great motivation for me to pursue a Sophie Business. Impressive indeed! 

How was the start of your Sophie journey?
At first, I was hesitant to sell or offer Sophie products. I’ve been selling products and services before but only the ones that I have been using and can prove are the best. So I tried the cosmetics myself and showed the catalog to some of my friends. It was good! Then I found out about the Sophie Leaders Club. Yes, it was challenging, but the rewards were remarkable!

How did you overcome the challenges you experienced?
Every time I felt down or rejected, I would pause, pray, and seek guidance not just from God but from my mentors, Ms. Ronalyn Guntang and Ms. Beth Leynes, as well. The Lead­ers Meetings and training sessions helped me a lot. What I learned from them helped me stay focused, be consistent, and stay motivated.

Do you feel that Sophie was able to develop you personally and professionally?
Yes, a lot! Being active in recruitment, attending catalog launches, meetings and training sessions developed me to become the Leader I am now. 

How has Sophie helped you achieve your dreams and aspirations and how has it affected your life?
One of the hardest things as a single parents is leaving my kids because I have to work. With Sophie, I am able to earn and be with my kids because I can work online using social media to promote Sophie products. Sophie really helped me a lot and I would say that it is already in my system. I carry Sophie everywhere I go. Either I sell or encourage people to join. Once I start talking about Sophie, I find it hard to stop! I find the thought of growing my business and earning more very motivating. Building a strong network, developing and inspiring more leaders is truly exciting for me.

Do you have any tips you want to share to other Sophie Members who aspire to become Sophie Leaders?
To members who want to become Sophie Leaders, always believe in yourself. Believe that you can. Be consistent. Be focused. We all have our time to shine like a diamond, but we have to pass thru that polishing process first in order to shine. Trials and challenges will always be there but they are part of the process.

What is your Sophie goal this 2019?
This 2019, my goal is to develop more leaders and build a stronger network. I always believe that what I share comes back double. Sharing Sophie and developing more leaders means success and more earnings for all of us.
