Hey everyone! Welcome to my blog 🙂
You probably have this big dream of becoming a top, successful network marketer and you are willing to do whatever it takes to reach your goal.
You may be someone who just joined a network marketing company or someone who is already a network marketer for a while, but you probably are not where you want to be.
There are hundreds of amazing information online that guide you to how to build your business, but sometimes you feel like their target audience are more of people with experience than total newbies. Some of you may not even have a background on what the word ‘business’ is and how it works.
Am I right?
If I am, then you are in the right place to learn!
Who am I?
So let me officially introduce myself!
My name is Reem Shams. I am an ambitious Network Marketing Trainer who helps network marketers build the business of their dreams. I am here to show complete beginners on how to create future financial independence through direct sales and online marketing.
I come from a diverse background. I was born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and have been living here all my life. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science Engineering.
I am the eldest in my family. We are only two daughters living with their beloved parents. My family is all I have in this world. They are my only support and the only people I trust in this world. My life without them means nothing and I can’t imagine living without them.
My dream is to travel the world with the man I love. I want to visit places that may not even exist in the world map. Just live some crazy adventures and looking at God’s and man’s wonderful creations.
The reason I started blogging is, to share my experiences and mistakes with fresh network marketers because I know what it means to feel lost or not understand what this business is truly about.
How it all started?
I am a teacher for elementary students. I teach them English language, Math and Science. I also teach college students in English and programming languages. I have been teaching ever since I graduated high school but only stopped in the duration of the time I was in college.
Even though I was always appreciated for my teaching skills, I never found it to be enough for me. That’s not who I wanted to become. I always looked for self-development and independence. My short term goal was always to be a Project Manager for a software company while my long term goal was to one day start my own company. Unfortunately, I wasted three years after my graduation to look for that development in my field without any industrial experience. I insisted on working in my field that I even took extra courses in these three years to enhance my programming skills. I never wanted to give up on my dream but as time was passing idly, I had to get my priorities straight.
It was now the time for my younger sister to pursue her education and she had to travel to do so because colleges here were just not what she wanted. We needed college expenses to send her but our financial life was unstable and I knew I had to do something about it.
So now, my goal has changed from self-goals to helping my sister go to college. My father was unable to support her complete her education and she had to stop studying before she even started her degree. She only completed her foundation year in Malaysia and is now going through a gap year due to our financial instability.
I got into depression and I felt hopeless. The people I loved the most in this world were going through a lot and my hands were tight. My dad gave me everything and it was time for me to do the same and help him out. Education is a big deal to my father and I knew he was going through a lot because he wasn’t able to send her, but I couldn’t doing anything about it. My earnings as a teacher were not enough to send her away. I was looking for anything that could help me get my sister to where she can complete her education.
Then one day, my friend, who was the managing director of the English Institute I taught in ten years ago, contacted me, and when I told her my story, she asked me to join this industry as it could help me get my sister to where she can complete her education.
To be honest with you, I was skeptical at first. I didn’t think I could do it at all. I mean, I had zero backgrounds on marketing and I wasn’t sure if it is something I could even do. I am a Software Engineer and can am good with computers. But marketing?? Didn’t think I could.
However, I was desperate at that moment and needed anything that can help me earn any amount so I can collect for sis’s college. So, I decided to join and try it out. Actually, Richard Branson’s words came to my head.
“If someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you’re not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later.”Richard Branson
So I followed my friend’s advice and I joined the business.
My journey in Network Marketing
When I first joined in, it didn’t make sense to me. Everything seemed too good to be true. I had the skills it took to be a successful network marketer and it felt that I could reach my goal or target in months (with the hard work of course). I mean most success stories that I heard at that time made me believe that I can reach what I want easily.
However, we all know that nothing valuable in this life is easy to achieve. I just listen to the ending of those success stories and didn’t think the beginning mattered. Most (if not all) top earners worked very hard for years to reach the level they are in today. But all I cared about was how could I reach it faster by just implementing things they said.
Just like any other person in this industry, I had a bumpy ride. This business, like others, has its difficult days. Some days I feel like this is just too much for me to handle and I feel like quitting. In fact, I mentally quit like a hundred times a week. There are times when I feel like maybe I took the wrong decision to start something like this. Despite that, all this goes away when my hard work is paid off by the end of every sale I make or every person I recruit. When I see the number in my savings account increase from 0 to 100 and again from 100 to 300, I feel so blessed to have an extra income that can help me save for sending my sister to the college of her dream place.
I always tell myself that if I understand how this is done and work my way into learning more on how to grow, there is nothing impossible in this life. Like most successful network marketers said, this is the kind of business that needs patience and consistency. If I master these two, then everything will work well with me.
After I committed myself to this industry, I could see true results that could help me become a better person in this business. I developed mentally, physically and financially by starting this amazing business.
Why work with me?
I am always working on growing myself (on both business and personal level) and my team to the top and I can share with you my mistakes and what I saw worked for me and what didn’t, and how to overcome the struggles that most network marketers fail to lay out to you before they sign you up.
I came across people who suffered when they started because they were just guided with what they should be working on for the next step but not on how to do it in the simplest way. Some beginners are totally lost on how to start. With the training provided by the company for their distributors, they may have the knowledge and procedure on how to do things but they have no idea how/where to start implementing what they know.
Being a person who has been there, I help people meet their goals and do that at their own pace and give them extensive personal training that helps them understand what is it that they need to do step-by-step and later help them in implementing their system. Beginners need to first be trained on their personal development and then on how to handle the business. This is something I learned late after joining. They need to work on their leadership skills, communication skills, attitude, and marketing skills and later have the right skill-set to handle their network marketing business.
I help people understand how to build a stable business from scratch and moderate their expectations to realistic goals.
I hope you will visit my site more often and like what I share and, most importantly, believe in them because these are not only proven guide by top earners in network marketing but what I personally saw make a difference with me.
